The story of a leopard hunter
18 October 2011 | by sankuchakramSee all my reviews

MRIGAYA,is a film released in the year 1989,directed by the veteran director IV SASI,penned by the legend A.K.Lohitadas.this film mainly revolves around a village which is frequently attacked by a leopard,the priest(enacted by thilakan) calls for a hunter,who died and thus his son varunni(mammooty) comes to the village,the really undisciplined life and being a womaniser the village starts to hate him,and discards him from the society,but later he get himself into a murder by accident and from there on he becomes a changed man under the surveillance of the priest,the later story revolves around the leopard which comes again back to the village,whether he captures the leopard or not is the later plot

This movie is greatly marked with the brilliant acting of bharath mammooty and iv sasi's direction.the acting of thilakan,urvasi is also applaudable.it is one of the very few Indian movie which really deals with a Jim Corbett style forest hunting,this film is one among the movies which i would recommend as must watch since it is a very good experimentation which attracted both class and mass.
