Bandit Queen DVD
From Shekhar Kapur BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated director of "Elizabeth" comes one of the most powerful and controversial portraits of a warrior, martyr and legend that cinema has ever produced. Based on intimate, shattering prison diaries Kapur's film tells the incredible true story of India's Bandit Queen. Her name was Phoolan Devi, the Goddess of Flowers. She was India's most infamous outlaw; a kidnapper murderer and scourge of the upper castes. Sold into marriage aged 11, she was beaten and humiliated, living for years in virtual slavery. Until one day, she found the strength to rise up, to unite a makeshift army of maltreated and neglected citizens and in a five-year reign of terror cut a swath of bloody vengeance against those responsible for the brutality of her past. Originally banned in India, critics have hailed it as one of the greatest motion pictures their industry has ever produced, "Bandit Queen" is a violent and moving testimoney to a real-life folk heroine.
