Mithun is a Legend!
24 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Sen's 1976 film 'Mrigayaa' is a classy film. Honestly, Mithun Chakraborty is the life of this film.

I mean this was the his first film and he won the National Film Award for Best Actor. Wow! His performance here, despite being his debut, leaves you stunned.

Performance Wise:: I cant help myself but to praise Mithun's performance. I've been his biggest fan, and I am proud to know that India has a talent like Mithun.

On the whole, 'Mrigayaa' is a classy watch. Mithun's performance alone, is enough to keep you gripped. Two Thumbs Up!
