    Man, I'm used to some violent films but the amount of rape, abuse and brutality in this film was almost unbearable.
    It's a strong film, mostly, dealing with defective and messed up structures of the shown society and bringing the exceptional biography of the bandit queen to life. Although you have to be aware; central parts of her story are said to be exaggerated or simply not true - Phoolan Devi herself tried to ban the film upon release. I recommend some reading afterwards.

    Phew. Heavy.
