Here we talk about the trailer of Shahid Kapoor’s latest movie, Haider! It is directed by Vishal Bhardwaj and is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet! It is dark, cold and promises performance-oriented cinema.
Shahid Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj are a deadly combination!
And they are coming back with their breath-taking cinema, Haider!
The much awaited adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, will soon hit the screens near you, but for now, feast your eyes with the deadly first trailer of the movie.
Haider is the third part of the trilogy Vishal ventured out to treat his audiences with. After Maqbool and Omkara, this one looks like the icing on the cake for multiple reasons, the first one being, Shahid Kapoor! After looking at various posters and now the trailer of the flick, it can be safely said that this should prove to be Shahid’s best work till date. In his last project with Vishal, Kaminey, he had shown traits of his craziness. But in Haider, he has gone all out to prove his mettle and showcase the immense talent powerhouse that Shaid Kapoor is!
We guess, after this flick, he will be a step ahead of his contemporaries in terms of comparisons about who the better actor is!
Shot in the picture perfect location of Kashmir, Haider is a revenge drama where the main protagonist, Shahid Kapoor is ably supported by such stalwarts as Kay Kay Menon, Tabu, Irrfan Khan, Ashish Vidyarthi as well as the current heartthrob of the nation, Shraddha Kapoor. As much as Shraddha brings in an innocent charm to the movie, Tabu’s mature presence adds a special zing to the whole viewing experience.
We are used to looking at Kashmir from the romantic side of film-makers.
The valleys, the snow-capped mountains, the gardens have all been used to promote softness, the love, but here, Vishal shows the dark, dead-cold side of Kashmir which is still beautiful but in a chilling way! The visuals, the performances are all adding up to make this movie a spectacular watch. The best kept secret for the longest possible time about Shahid’s bald look is finally out and we must say he is looking extremely fanatical as well as menacing!
A revenge drama about a father asking his son to kill his uncle for having lustful plans for his mother has to be a dark subject. No one can be better than Vishal Bhardwaj to handle such an intricate web of complicated human relations in a seamless smooth way.
The music is given by Vishal himself and lyrics are penned by his guru, Gulzar!
This is a movie that will cater strictly to the audiences who want substance from their cinema, not a mindless visual of stupidities and histrionics just for the sake of a movie!
We are surely impressed by the trailer and can’t wait to watch the movie!
Hats off to Vishal and Shahid for breaking the norms and trying something really DIFFERENT!
