The film shows Hatim as the benevolent ruler of a land, who’s approached by the princess of another land to solve her problem. She has fallen in love with another prince, but her father refuses the relation.
Hatim Tai Synopsis

To break the curse, the angel has asked the answer for seven questions. The adventures that Hatim has while finding these answers forms the rest of the story.
Hatim Tai Review:
Nothing spells grand in the nineties than Hatim Tai. Hatim Tai is the greatest spectacle that Bollywood could have given us – with the resources that were available at the time. We see that there’s not a single sequence that doesn’t have a CGI or something that spells medieval fantasy with a capital M. The story has healthy, to the brim offerings of masala. We wouldn’t be surprised if this film finds many more fans after this post. You can see the whole film here:
