Storyline

Hatya is an experience. Through the eyes of a child. A spine-chilling musical thriller, the film is about the turmoil of a deaf and dumb child, who witnesses a murder along with his mother, and is left alone after the mother is also killed. Raja escapes and is homeless. He sleeps on the footpaths. Fortunately he is picked up by Sagar, a painter who has already lost his wife and child. A sad man in life, Sagar finds the upbringing of Raja as his only motive in the life. But the killers are shadowing Raja, for they know that he is the only eyewitness to their death. Slowly Sagar comes to know about the whole murder story. But the clever moves of the killers implicate Sagar in the murder; and he is imprisoned. Sagar escapes from the jail, and un-ravels the murder mystery. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Ya ya it's a classic
18 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remembered this film from when i was a kid even up until we were adults me and my brothers, cousins still remembered the classic tune and the ya ya ya ya etc.

Even so i wasn't quite sure I actually watched the whole film when I was a kid so recently brought the DVD online, yes its a dated movie but I wasn't disappointed this is quality Indian cinema which still deserves some recognition today. Govinda's a class act although his standards have dropped recently.

I haven't seen all his films but I'm confident this is still one of his best.
