Where did you watch this movie?

Based on true life events, this bold tale depicts the story of the 'Bandit Queen,' Phoolan Devi who was sent to prison in 1983 and got free in 1994. During five years she was prosecuted by the Indian police and turned into a legend (like a modern Robin Hood) by the Indian press. Later in her life, she entered into the politics and was assassinated in 2001. This is an emotionally charged tale of exploitation and survival, power and politics, helplessness and resistance, and delves into many social concepts in a bold and realistic manner.
