Bandit Queen (1995)

An unhappy marriage in childhood and multiple rapes catapult a young woman to embark on the life of a dacoit. Driven by intense hatred, she seeks revenge.

The film was based on bandit queen Phoolan Devi's life.

The censors took great exception to the film's visually explicit content and language. But the film introduced the immensely talented Seema Biswas, and took director Shekhar Kapur to international fame.
