A really good movie with brilliant performance by all the star cast…!!!
My rating:- 8 on 10
1. Brilliant Cinematography
2. Brilliant performances by all the star cast
3. Special credits to Irfan Khan, Tabu, Shahid Kapoor and Kay Kay
4. Songs went well with the situations…special credit to Bismil song.
5. The movie has its on charm taking you into a different world
6. The dark Kashmir of 90’s
1.Very few scenes where your mind may be diverted or you may feel bored….but can be ignored easily as hardly one or two scenes for couple of minutes each.
=>Final Words:- “A very well directed movie with brilliant performances by all the star cast…..its a different genre movie,not for the masses….if any one is looking for a masala or typical Bollywood movie its no fun for them to watch…..as this one is slow which builds on the go and has its own charm and class”.
An exceptional cinematic experience for anyone, anywhere in the world
The movie “Haider” proves that Bollywood has evolved and that India has now some bold filmmakers like Vishal Bharadwaj. This outstanding movie with a mind-blowing performance by Tabu deserves 10 stars, but I am holding one star because the movie fails to come off as unbiased and the movie could have done with better editing and zero romantic songs.
First, the movie shows a realistic Kashmir – this is not the heavenly Srinagar of old Hindi movies, and the movie realistically depicts one of the problems that the people of Kashmir face. But here the movie should have balanced opinion in order to appear neutral. While the movie clearly shows things as seen with the eyes of terrorists or budding terrorists (Roohdar and Haider) and makes a case for these people to dislike Indian Army, it fails to explain why the Army has to resort to the measures that it does. The movie does not explicitly show the murders and the guerrilla war that the Army has to suffer at the hands of the terrorists. Even when the Army arrests Haider’s dad, the doctor, for harboring terrorists in his home, the movie provides the counter-argument that the doctor is on “life’s side”. We then go on to see one of the primary characters, Haider, turn against the Army in search of his dad – and there is little ambiguity here – the filmmaker clearly wants you to sympathize with Haider. The only thing to the movie’s credit in this matter is the message of peace borne by the protagonist Ghazala – yes, Ghazala, and not Haider, is the true protagonist of the movie because she plays the upper hand in all events including the climax – Bharadwaj has shifted the center of gravity of Shakespeare’s play from Hamlet’s dilemmas to Gertrude’s mind.
Screenplay is mostly perfect but slips at a few places. One of the strongest points of the movie is its ending. The screenplay puts a surprising twist to the Shakespearean drama. In a way, this is the movie’s way to try to balance the case it has built for violence and revenge.
Direction and cinematography are superb. Editing is also good, except the romantic songs, whose presence in the movie, first of all, I do not know the reason for, but worse, which have been inserted into the movie at the most unfitting moments. They actually end up making the viewer impatient instead of providing any respite.
I would give primary credit for the movie to the performances, and above all, to Tabu. Ghazala is heart-breaking and her eyes and facial expressions speak volumes. Lending her full support is Kay Kay Menon in a highly convincing villainous Kashmiri role. Shahid Kapoor, as Haider, is exceptionally good in the second half of the movie, but not so convincing in the first half. The only weak link in the cast is Shraddha Kapoor and clearly stands out as an under- performing novice among veterans – fortunately, she has pulled off her last scene well – which is where her character really matters.
All in all, “Haider” is a must-see Bollywood affair. It will leave you deeply moved and make you think. However, remember that the movie succeeds in making the case for only one side of the full picture, the main reason it loses one star in my rating.
