Rangdari captures the enigma and mystery in a raw visual format that depicts the life and times of one of the most legendary dons to have ever ruled over 6 states of north and central India.
It traces the don's rise to fame and power with equal doses of cruelty and calmness. Messiah or murderer depending how you stand in relation to his principles of justice and fair play. He is revered and feared in the same breath. Saint and satan in a heady cocktail mix. The unofficial 'Robinhood'. While a Muslim by faith, more Hindus have faith in his sense of justice than Muslims.
In the terrain that he rules, courts, panchayats are the last recourse if at all. The first port of call for the poor and the distressed is his durbar, which has been functioning inside a jail, where he is incarcerated for the past 8 years. He has won 2 elections from inside the bars and is said to control the political destinies of many a well known politician.
The film chronicles the life of this larger than life character with an intensity and sensitivity that has rarely been seen in Hindi cinema since Bandit Queen. He has killed corrupt ministers, he has got hundreds of poor girls married with his own money without dowry.
