Trivia

One day Dharmendra arrived on the films sets to see how the shooting was progressing. When he arrived everyone got up out of their seats in respect for Dharamji. But Farha remained seated with her feet up smoking. She was also using abusive language. Dharamendra was upset seeing this and went to the producers office. There he summoned Farha to come and see him. Upon hearing this ,Farha refused to get up saying "Main kyon jaaon? Aane do bhudde ko yahan". Dharmendra was so upset with her behavior he left the sets. Sunny heard of the incident and was ready to throw Farha out of the film. Farha on her part denied she did this and stated no such incident occurred. See more »

Awesome!!
5 September 2008 | by shravanSee all my reviews

There has been only three Hindi movies till date which can be categorized as pure Western and Yateem is one of them with Sholay and Dacait being the other two. Released in 1988, Yateem was much ahead of its time and narrated a story which would find few takers in even 2008 i.e. a son and a step-mother relation. Like JP Dutta's other films, cinematography is top notch and could be adjudged as his finest in terms of shot takings. Sunny has given a performance of his life time, which's as good as Ghayal. The Salim Chisti Dargah at Fatehpur Sikri is shot so beautifully, it stays in your mind much after the movie and the Qawalli is brilliant. On the acting front, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Danny, Amrish Puri, Sujata Mehta light up the movie screen when ever they come. For me Yateem is one of the best movies I've ever seen and still watch the re-runs on television when ever I get a chance. Sad, JP Dutta doesn't make these kind of movies now a days but Yateem rocks!!
