Hatya is not your typical Bollywood masala. Especially in the late 1980s. It's a thriller. Deaf and mute cute little boy Raja (Baby Sujitha) witnesses a man's murder along with his mother's. He escapes and Saagar (Govinda) finds him.He loves Raja so much and tries to help him find his family. The killers are looking for Raja since he witness the murders.
All Govinda haters - watch this movie! This man can act! He makes you feel his pain and struggle. Ever since Ilzaam, I loved Govinda. Not to mention Govinda + Neelam!! You will see the jodi dance away too.
I love Neelam! I know all of you know by now. She doesn't have a big role in the movie but her role is significant. She's not there "just for the songs." In Hatya, she plays the cute Sapna who Raja just adores and later she falls for Saagar.
Raja is mute and deaf witnesses Mohan and his mother's death. Raja is sooooooo adorable! I just wanted to take him and hug him. Baby Sujitha does a great job. I wonder where he is now?? Anyone knows?
Raj Kiran was also in Ilzaam with Govinda and Neelam. He plays Police Inspector Ashok who investigates the murder cases.
Hatya starts off with Mohan's (Satish Kaul) murder. Raja witness it and his mother ends up dead as well.
Geeta is Raja's mother. I couldn't find her real name but she has a really short role. She gets killed because she witnessed Mohan's murder.
Anupam Kher plays the crippled businessman Surendra.
I couldn't find his real name and forgot his character's name in the movie but he's the guy who kills Mohan and Geeta.
Look! It's Johnny Lever. Yes, he's in the movie for some comedy but he plays a key role in helping Saagar find out who the killers are.
Om Shivpuri plays Sapna's father.
Satyendra Kapoor plays Father Joseph. He knows Raja and his mother.
My favorite scene is when Saagar is drinking and telling Raja about his sad love, why he's the way he is - a drunk. He knows Raja can not hear him but he does it anyways. You can feel the tears and sorrow in his eyes.
Saagar is a good artist and draws Raja.
Saagar and Raja
Hatya has to be the best Govinda movie for his acting. I think it's a pretty darn good movie. This movie released in 1988 and watching it again, I still loved it. Many may not know but Govinda's brother directed Hatya. Another interesting fact - this blog has been getting a lot of hits for Govinda-Neelam movies. No worries. More to come!
Go Watch Hatya!! Now time for the music....
