SYNOPSIS:

“If you’re shy, you’ll die.” This is just one of the catchy aphorisms uttered by the formidable Sampat Pal Devi, leader of the Gulabi Gang (or Pink Gang), the centre of this film. The Gulabi Gang, whose base
is the northern India’s state of Uttar Pradesh – where entrenched tradition continues to condone dowry deaths and other abuses – seeks to help women from the lowest caste, known as “dalits” or “untouchables.” The female gang members assert their presence by
wearing bright pink saris and make good on Sampat Pal’s assertion that: “there is no higher power than a woman.”
