Storyline

Bundelkhand in central India, a region notorious for its rebels-turned-armed bandits, is witnessing a new kind of rebellion with an unusual cast of characters. These are the pink sari-clad women of the Gulabi Gang, who use words as weapons - demanding their rights, submitting petitions and haranguing corrupt officials. They travel long distances by cart and tractor, bus and train, to wrest justice for women and dalits, undeterred by sneering policemen and condescending bureaucrats. Sampat Pal, the group's founder, is a rough-and-tough woman with a commanding personality. Despite being born into a traditional family and married off early, she has evolved her own brand of feminism and egalitarian politics. Constantly on the move, today she may be found investigating the suspicious death of a young woman, tomorrow protesting against a corrupt official. The Gulabi Gang, with a membership of thousands, is active across many districts. Suman Singh, one of the leaders, has made it her ... Written by Piraya Film

Well worth seeing
22 December 2012 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

This is a documentary well worth seeing because it is not an easy subject to film. The main subject of the film,

Sampat Lal, is a difficult character to portray because you cannot think about her in simple black and white terms. Yet, she and her group of women have done something that is truly remarkable.

Nishtha Jain has done a nuanced job and brought out the pluses and minuses of the work that is being done by the Gulabi Gang.

The difficult conditions in which they work has also been brought out.

It is also beautifully shot. The film captures the region in which the Gulabi Gang operates very well, helping us to understand the background.
