200 Halla Ho true story –
17 years ago, Nagpur, a city in Maharashtra, experienced one of the most brutal yet cathartic results on the shiny white marble floor of the Nagpur District Court. Akku Yadav, a local thug, extortionist, serial rapist and murderer, was lynched to death by 200 Dalit women from Kasturba Nagar. According to history, Dalit women are the most oppressed and abused women in India, and even today they face similar discrimination and disparaging treatment in the name of caste. On August 13, 2004, these women took justice into their own hands and marched inside the district court with chili powder and paring knives. They stabbed Yadav over 70 times, and even stabbing represented the freedom of a gangster who controlled the local police and incited gang rapes for over 15 years.
The trailer gives us a glimpse of the injustice suffered by Dalit women. It also touches on the subject of rape and how a criminal accused of rape and assault tries to escape using loopholes in the system.
