BANDIT QUEEN (WORLD CLASSICS COLLECTION)
From celebrated filmmaker Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth) comes one of the most controversial films ever produced in India, the gripping story of Phoolan Devi, a modern day Hindi Robin Hood.
Championed by the poor and despised by the rich Phoolan Devi (Seema Biswas) was the infamous 'Goddess of Flowers'. Leader of a violent gang of bandits, responsible for killings, kidnappings and numerous robberies, her exploits became legendary.
Maintaining a tough and gritty appearance in a male-dominated world, Devi became the avenging angel of the dispossessed - lauded by many, a ruthless female hero in a society where crimes against women run rife.
A powerful, unflinching portrait of one woman's struggle for power and recognition in a dangerous and unforgiving world.
