HAIDER

Vishal Bhardwaj
India
 - 2014

After adapting ‘Macbeth’ for the screen in ‘Maqbool’ (2003) and ‘Othello’ in ‘Omkara’ (2006), Bhardwaj closed his Shakespearean trilogy in 2014 with this adaptation of ‘Hamlet’. Haider is a young man who returns home to Kashmir after receiving news of the disappearance of his father, who has been taken away by the security forces on charges of harbouring terrorists. On his arrival, Haider despairs at finding no clue to his father’s whereabouts, while he discovers that his mother is having an affair with his own uncle.
