Hatim Tai was the King of the Tai tribe of Arabia, who, as far as is known, died in 578AD. He was known for his generosity, and mentioned in some writings by Prophet Muhammad, as well as the Arabian Nights.
Title: Hatim Tai
Cast: Jeetentra, Sangeeta Bijlani.
The movie itself is terrible- it is based on “Qissa-e-Hatim,” where a beautiful woman, Husn Banu, can only marry when the following 7 questions (that are more like random sentences anyways):
' What I saw once, I long for a second time.'
' Do good, and cast it upon the waters.'
' Do no evil; if you do, such shall you meet with.'
' He who speaks the truth is always tranquil.'
' Let him bring an account of the mountain of Nida.'
' Let him produce a pearl of the size of a duck's egg'
' Let him bring an account of the bath of Bad-gard.'
To help a prince who is in love with her, Hatim Tai (Jeetendra) decides to go find the answers to the questions.
Of course he accomplishes his quest, and in the process, also gets the princess (Sangeeta Bijlani) of Paristan as his bride.
And we also have Amreesh Puri dropping in as the token villain of the piece.
The “special effects” are really very special- they are so bad that they are laughable, even cry-able. This is just a bad, bad movie, and I could only finish it in 3 sittings :S I had picked up the movie simply because I figured it would have some camp value, but this is a true monstrocity, which you really do not want to subject yourself to. Watch it at your own risk!
