     3 
     4Hindi director born in Bombay. Son of cineaste 
     5O.P. Dutta. Belongs to late 80s generation of 
     6Hindi commercial film-makers (e.g. Vinod 
     7Chopra, N. Chandra) aiming for a realist 
     8surplus through the sensory intensification of 
     9established film genres, as in 70s Hollywood 
     10films (e.g. Scorsese). Locates all his scripts in 
     11feudal Rajasthan, among conflicts featuring the 
     12Jat and the immensely powerful Thakur 
     13zamindars. His début, Sarhad (1978) was to 
     14star Vinod Khanna but remained unfinished. 
     15Faced major controversy when his next film, 
     16Ghulami, sparked off communal violence in 
     17Rajasthan. Best-known film Hathyar extended 
     18the ancestral conflict into Bombay’s gang wars.

     20Yateem; 1989: Hathyar; Batwara; 1992:
