Prakash Jha in Mrityudand


1997 NR

This winner of three Screen Awards for acting examines the role of women in India through astute character studies of three women tied to the same family. A new bride longs for companionship with her unfeeling partner; her sister-in-law begins an affair when her husband ignores her; and a woman whose husband owes money sells herself to get it. A topical, well-received Hindi-language drama that strays from the Bollywood song-and-dance formula.
