The recent trend in Bollywood is the 'Biopics'. Every filmmaker now wants to make Biopics. But not every biopic showcases reality, most of them are with added fiction and more of drama.

But it's not the same with Shekhar Kapur's directed 1994 'Bandit Queen' which is based on the life of Phoolan Devi.

Seema Biswas plays the main lead as Phoolan Devi. The movie showcases her journey on how she faces discrimination, sexual abuse in society and becomes the first lady Bandit.
