High Quality movie
11 August 2000 | by (hyderabad) – See all my reviews

Mrityudand is an excellent off-beat movie from Prakash Jha .It is neither a complete art movie nor a complete commercial one. Madhuri puts in a go-for-the-gold performance which is definitely worthy of winning an award.The climax is a little disappointing .Overall a high quality film
