Phoolan Devi (Goddess Phoolan) is a flawed woman. Not because of her caste (low), or her tenacity (high), or her unfortunate life (extreme) but because she is human (like the rest of us). Her life is a rough lot, but she doesn't overcome with nobility or "working to change the system". She gets a gang of highwaymen and starts slaughtering all who represent her oppression (the oppression of the low caste women) and in the process becomes an unwitting heroine of the people. The men that used her, raped her, beat her, sullied her honor, and those that oppose her liberty, dignity and inherent worth as a female human being... either suffered her gun, her fist or those of her fellow outlaws. A Robin-hood story for India. The director (the versatile and brilliant Shekar Kapur) has made sure that you don't *always* feel pity for Phoolan, she is more than the sum of her victimizations. She is portrayed as strong, sassy, stubborn, flawed, struggling, striving to live, to heal, to love, to avenge. Each step of the way, she perservered and did what no one thought could be done.
The gripe I have with this movie is that the director, never bothered to meet/consult with Phoolan (who was alive when the movie was made). This movie is not considered a definitive account of her life or a representation of the book (Phoolan's diary). It was not endorsed or approved by Phoolan in any way.
For those wondering, Phoolan was truly a people's hero, eventually released from jail, elected to the Indian Parliment and then promptly/tragically assasinated a couple years ago. Her legend is worth knowing and this movie is a brilliant telling.
The Direction of the film starts well and sets up the characters well, however it runs out of steam two thirds of the way and then it ends abruptly. Its a great story and needs to be told. Im glad I saw this film.
