Haider – Hamlet that you shouldn’t miss

Haider-PosterVishal Bhardwaj’s third Shakespearean sojourn is his best yet: based on William Shakespeare’s Hamlet goes beyond clichés on Kashmir and its characters aren’t trying to be entertaining.

The movie tells the story of Haider (Shahid) who finds out that his peace-loving, life-saving doctor father (Narendra Jha) has been arrested by the Indian Army. He returns from Aligarh (where he was studying poetry, a passion he shares with his father) to realise that his mother (Tabu) and uncle (Kay Kay Menon) are behind a conspiracy that resulted in his father’s disappearance.

The music and background score go hand-in-hand with the narrative and scaringly haunt you throughout. As for performances, Vishal Bhardwaj brings out the best of Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor,not to forget the mesmerising Tabu performance.
