Kurukshetra is a 2000 Indian action film written and directed by Mahesh Manjrekar. It released on 10 November 2000 and stars Sanjay Dutt, Mahima Chaudhary and Om Puri in lead roles with Mukesh Rishi and Shivaji Satam in supporting roles.


Kurukshetra is a story of war between evil and truth. ACP Prithviraj Singh (Sanjay Dutt) is an honest and brave police officer. All dishonest police officers, rogues, criminals and corrupt politicians are scared of him. The day he joins duty in Mumbai, he destroys all the illegal business of Iqbal Pasina (Mukesh Rishi). From that day onwards, Iqbal Pasina starts admiring ACP Prithviraj Singh. Prithviraj with his wife, Anjali (Mahima Chaudhary) and sister, Aarti is living a happy life. Aarti is in love with Sub-Inspector Avinash. Anjali is sad because she lost her "Prithvi" who used to love her. "ACP Prithviraj Singh" is a totally different man, a man of law and duties. She lost her lover behind the uniform.

One day C.M. Baburao Deshmukh's son Ambar and his friend Rohit, trap a girl named Gita Naik in a hotel room and both of them rape her. This brutal incident evokes into the battle of "Kurukshetra". The battle is fought between the C.M. Babubao Deshmukh and ACP Prithviraj Singh. C.M. Babu Rao Deshmukh (Om Puri) has money, power and government infrastructure and on the other side, ACP Prithvi Raj Singh gets the support from opposition leader Sambhaji Yadav, Iqbal Pasina and their families. Sambhaji Yadav later betrays Prithviraj and joins hands with the C.M. Finally Prithviraj realizes that law is helpless and kills both C.M. and Sambhaji Yadav.
