Powerful Stories on Screen


PHOOLAN tells the untold true story of Phoolan Devi, known to many as the Bandit Queen of India, who became a social justice warrior and a female Robin Hood. Born a poor village girl, the illiterate low-caste Phoolan became a rebel bandit and ultimately the leader of an all-male gang.

After taking revenge on 22 high-caste men for her violent rape, this notorious bandit became the subject of one of the largest manhunts in Indian history. Phoolan evaded capture for over 4 years, and in 1983, surrendered only on her own terms.

During her 11-year incarceration, Phoolan abandoned Hinduism and became a Buddhist, with its code of non-violence.

Upon her release from prison, she was convinced by the low-caste political party to run for a seat in Parliament. In a surprise victory that sent shock waves through India, Phoolan WON and became the first low-caste woman ever elected to that office. Phoolan captured the hearts and transformed the lives of hundreds of millions of poor Indian women and, like Gandhi, was a champion for their rights until she was assassinated in 2001.

Our multi-award winning team led by Hossein Martin Fazeli and Jack Silberman, who collectively have received 100 awards for their films, is working around the clock to complete the film.
