From the film:
“This tiger is the chosen one. She will be taken from her home and released into unknown territory. She will face a struggle to survive in a world full of uncertainty. Her challenge is to begin a new dynasty of tigers and to help save her species.”
Sariska National Park was once one of India’s premiere tiger reserves until all the tigers were wiped out by poachers. This film documents the story of four year old female Baghani, who with a hot-blooded male Rajore have been moved from their home to start a new life in Sariska. There they will learn to adapt to their new territory and navigate local villagers, poachers Sariska’s dominant predator, the leopard.
What the Critics have said...
“Director S Nallamuthu follows her progress as she settles into her new home in Sariska, hooks up with hot-blooded male suitor Rajore and fights off poachers and leopards. His passion for tigers shines through with his encouraging commentary and he captures plenty of stunning close-up images along the way.” – TV Highlights 01/02/12 – Hannah Verdier, Guardian.co.uk, Feb 2012
