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

Gulabi Gang
23 February 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It was fulfilling to see Gulabi Gang. I did not read any reviews or ratings etc. I went along with my sister and mother but was initially apprehensive as it was a documentary film and unfortunately in country like ours people think film as entertainment, with a hero, a heroine and villain with some song songs and dance numbers. Fortunately everyone liked. I was the first person to clap in the theatre in the end and then every one clapped. It was satisfying to see this film and i must thank Nishtha Jain, the maker for taking all the pain and roam around in Banda district villages and shoot this stuff, especially it must be quiet painful to shoot the charred body of that girl. I thought the film will end when Ramrati's (murdered girl, i hope this was the name) parents filed the case. But it was revealing to see how Husna was biased for her family. It was very layered documentary. In one hand Ramprasad Tiwary kind of demons, who will instil so much of fear in people that people did not vote against him and on the other hand people like Husna who are so deeply treaded under the norms that she will leave the Gulabi Gang but not go against wrongs. I can not blame Husna for it. Its the men who have made this kind of society and its pompous norms. Girls fall in love, kill her, boy rapes someone, save her. WTF.

Both the director and Sampat Pal are to be congratulated for showing and inspiring the change in society.

Thanks.
