excellent!
2 November 2004 | by deedee11See all my reviews

have always been a JP Datta fan! especially his early cinema. one of the few 'orignal' film makers from India. yateem probably has been his best work. strangely neither the media or the box-office saw much in it.

see the film for the brilliant characterisations, for the scene constructions, for the cinematography, for the use of a beautiful location (datta always picks stunning locations, has a keen eye for using India well, specially rajasthan. though yateem was shot mostly in Madhya Pradesh and UP.

Danny and kulbhushan kharbanda in their best performance ever!(i do tend to be generous, but you have to see the film for yourself!) so is the rest of the cast.

the film is a bit long, the revenge could have been 'non-filmi' but then i am nit picking. overall a truly nice film! see it if you like Hindi cinema
