Tiger’s Revenge – National Geographic – Documentary – 00:43:58

Tiger’s Revenge is a compelling story of two tiger sisters whose life journeys intermingle and clash against the backdrop of a breathtaking ancient fort in the Ranthambore National Park. Dominant sister Sundari rules over the fort and lake area after ousting her older sibling Krishna who raises her 3 cubs in a nearby territory. Sundari too desires motherhood, an ambition that leads her to make many unexpected choices – of mates, territories and finally a decision which results in her disappearance. Though Sundari’s choices were ruled by an instinctive desire to protect her cubs, ironically they leave them vulnerable with her tragic death. Despite a natural instinct for domination over territory, it is their maternal instincts that finally decides and shapes the destinies of the two sisters. The film unravels a poignant tale of motherhood even as it features the rivalry, jealousies and love stories of the two tiger siblings. Filmed extensively over a period of 2 years by wildlife filmmaker Nalla, Tiger’s Revenge captures the intimate and secret life of a tiger family in a film which takes the form of an observational documentary
Cameraman Nalla spends two years in the Ranthambore National forest to observe and capture the life journeys of two tiger magnificent sisters and comes back with a poignant tale of love, rivalry, motherhood and a tragic disappearance.
