The fact that Haider is based on Hamlet made me curious to watch it, as soon as it is released. So, what was next? I booked my tickets and sat out for Haider show. While watching the movie, my mind was judging the similarities, dissimilarities between the movie and the Shakespeare’s play. I was constantly comparing the story and the plot and trying to judge which one was better.
What I had thought to be a re-telling of Hamlet, turned out to be a different story in itself. Yes, Haider is an ‘Adaptation’ of Hamlet and not a copy of Hamlet. And for this originality and awesome story, Vishal Bhardwaj secures all 100 points from me.
