Dacait is an Indian film directed by Rahul Rawail and released in 1987. The movie stars Sunny Deol, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Raakhee, Raza Murad. It is based on the how a simple living guy transforms into a dacoit after being oppressed by the Zamindars of the area. The plot is based in the Chambal area which is the confluence of 3 states UP MP & Rajasthan and has been ignored for development since independence.

The Chambal ravine or 'beehad' (Hindi-बीहड़) in Dholpur has harboured dacoits (bandits) for centuries. In modern times, due to the old legends and rugged terrain, the labyrinthian ravines along the river were hiding places to gangs of bandits led by colourful figures like Man Singh, Daku Madho Singh,Dhanraj singh Rathur(Chhibramau) Paan Singh Tomar and Phoolan Devi. The last notable dacoit, Nirbhay Gujjar was killed in 2005. Today, a tourist lodge and other facilities promote eco-tourism here. This area is also known as the "Veer Bhoomi Chambal".
