Vishal Bhardwaj returns with Shahid as his Hamlet


Deep at the heart of this first incendiary glimpse of Haider – the third of Vishal Bhardwaj’s Shakespeare adapted dramas, his Hamlet  after  Omkara  (Othello) and Maqbool (Macbeth) — lies a bassline thudding with menace.

We see Shahid Kapoor, bearded and out for vengeance.

We see Tabu, intense, ethereal and basking in the glory of her part.

We see Kashmir, striking and vaguely unfamiliar.

We see Shradha Kapoor as Ophelia, fumbling with her English but with eyes afire.

We see familiar scenes staged in odd environments.
