Wounded: The Bandit Queen is a 2007 Hindi language film that was directed by Krishna Mishra.[1][2] The movie was first released on March 9, 2007. The movie is based on the true story of Seema Parihar,[3] who plays herself in the film.[4]


Parihar was abducted at the age of 13 from her village and the film depicts her transformation into a bandit.


  • Kanhaiya as Lalaram
  • Seema Parihar as herself


Planning for Wounded began around 2002, when Tarun Kumar Bagchi, A.K. Joshi and Krishna Mishra were inspired to create a film based upon Seema Parihar's life. The three men lobbied for Parihar's release on bail, as they wanted her to play as herself in the movie.[5] They were successful and filming began in 2004, upon which point it received some media notice due to it being one of the first films where a former dacoit plays herself.[6][7] During filming Mishra and Parihar received threats of bodily harm from dacoit Nirbhaya Gujjar, who led the gang that Parihar formerly led,[8] as he believed that she was "defaming the lives of dacoits".[9] Several attacks were made upon the production.[10] Upon completion of filming, the censor board of India initially refused to clear Wounded as they had objections over slang words used in the movie.[11] The Bombay High Court later cleared the film without removing any of the language that the censor board wanted to remove.[12]


Turnout for Wounded was poor and reception was described as "lackluster" by the Hindustan Times.[13]


  • Critics Award at the Leicester Expo Film Festival (2005, won)[14]
