What’s the film about?
200 Halla Ho tells us the story of 200 armed and masked Dalit women who marched into a court hearing and lynched a gangster who was accused of harassment and rape. The women suffered at hands of the gangster for 15 long years before they found courage to call out apathy of the system and take matters into their own hands. Dasgupta said in an interview that he wanted to convey it to the audience that women should be treated equally and that Dalits’ lives matter too. “This is not a film for me, but a shoulder that I give to the movement towards social equality,” he said.
