Among The Best Gangster Films Of Indian Cinema.
4 August 2018 | by scofield7See all my reviews

After Touching Topics Of Casteism ,Corruption ,Lawlessness in Rural India Through Ghulami J.P. Dutta Explores The Gangster Environment Of Urban India Through Issues Like Over Capitalism , Unemployment , Idealism And Land Feuds Between Families.

Hathyar Was And is Among The Best Gangster Films Ever . Sanjay Dutt And Dharmendra Gives Their Performance Of Lifetime . The Climax Scene Of Police Encounter in A Toy Shop is Something Of A Cinematic Marvel Which Only A Calibre Of Filmmaker Like J.P. Dutta Could Write And Direct.

It's Sad That Even Today ' Hathyar ' is Waiting To Get A Decent Home Video Release But This Was A Movie Which is Among The Best Critically Acclaimed Films Of J.P Dutta.

A Pure Classic 10/10 From Me.
