Critic Reviews for Haider
With Haider, [Bhardwaj] wisely forgoes the rough-edged attitude in his other films to embrace a slicker and more sophisticated style; and some of the film's most effective moments are masterful in their visual storytelling skill.
The result is a tense, well crafted drama that lacks the deep emotional intensity required in its disturbed characters.
"Haider" may not be the equal of Mr. Bhardwaj's other Shakespeare films, and it may be deficient in the "Hamlet" department, but it certainly gives good Gertrude.
Haider starts off promisingly. It's too bad that the promise never delivers.
Using Hamlet as his inspiration, director Vishal Bharadwaj's new film finally does full justice to India's under-rated acting dynamos -- Kapoor and Tabu -- without trivialising the larger issue of Kashmir that forms the backdrop.
