Haider Bollywood Movie Review
Set on the backdrop of Kashmir in 1995, the story is about Haider (shahid) whose father Dr Meer (Narendra jha) is a well known man. One day, his father brings an injured militant for treatment and the word gets to the military. They attack the house and burn it. Dr Meer goes missing and taking advantage of that, Khurram (kay kay menon), Meer’s brother marries Ghazala (tabu), Haider’s mother. This is not liked by Haider as he knows his father is somewhere. Things change when Roohdar (irrfan), a stranger comes with a message from Dr Meer. What happens from there forms the rest.
Haider Hindi Cinema Review
The director has come up with a hard hitting storyline and while the presentation was rich, the narrative was not so. The dialogues were well written. The script was twisted and the screenplay could have been better. The background score was melodious and three songs were worth watching. Cinematography was the main strength to this film. Editing was very weak in the second half. Costumes were well designed to suit the backdrop while the art department was natural. Full marks go to Shahid Kapoor for his performance, he was outstanding. Shraddha Kapoor was pretty and performed where required. Kay Kay Menon was excellent. Tabu was too good. Narendra Jha was natural. Irrfan Khan was impressive. Ashish Vidyarthi was apt. Others didn’t get much scope.
Haider Filem Review
The film is the adaptation of the Shakespearean work ‘Hamlet’ and the plot has been used as it is without much change. However, since the subject is dark, it should have been handled in a crisp way. The first half was good enough with elements of action, some romance and humor. The interval bang was promising but things went off track during the second half. The pace came down drastically and few scenes were quite dragging. Overall, the film does have a gloomy appeal as the subject demands. At the box office, it might be an average grosser and would rely on word of mouth publicity for success.
