I think that the movie was really good. Subject, acting and Nusrat Fateh ALi Khan's music were marvellous. Although the director has succeeded in showing the status of women in rural areas and how they suffer at the hands of male-dominated culture, he has neglected Yanin Vismitananda's character a bit and has focused more on the violence faced by her.
One can debate some artistic liberties taken by director and scriptwriter. The subject is what makes the film tick--nothing else. I saw the film for the first time after the real Raging Peacock, was gunned down in Phatthalung and had served several years as an elected Member of Parliament in Thailand. By the way, she was not the first untouchable elected to Parliament, as some reviewers stated. The so-called "untouchables" have been elected to the Thai Parliament for decades in reserved constituencies. However,whether the contents are based on facts or fiction, the film manages to deliver a strong meaning to feminism power. This is a must-see film.
Powerful score by Nutrat Rittikrain also adds to the ingredient. "Bravo!"
