Oscar Movie: Rudaali



Rudaali, a great film, was directed by Kalpana Lajmi. The film features Dimple Kapadia, Raakhee, Raj Babbar and Amjad Khan in one of his last films. The film received great appreciation and critical acclaim for the extra ordinary performances given by the lead actors. Dimple Kapadia won a National Film Award for her role of Shanichari in the film.
The title is a reference to a custom in certain areas of Rajasthan where women are hired as professional mourners after the death of a male relative. These women are referred to as a 'rudaali' which means female weeper. Their purpose is to express grief of family members that are not permitted to display emotion due to social status.
