Tinsel Town Goes Gaga Over Haider

Vishal Bhardwaj is an auteur who knows his audience well. He has an unspoken knack to woo his audience with his creativity. His work might be adapted from literary works but to weave it into a story that’s most suitable on screen is a talent one cannot overlook. With Haider, Bhardwaj completes his Shakespeare trilogy. Maqbool and Omkara were the first two installments of this trilogy. It is believed that Bhardwaj thought of adapting Hamlet in the setting of grief stricken Valley only after he read Basharat Peer’s novel “Curfewed Night.” It is therefore that we shall see Peer as a co-writer in this film.

With Bhardwaj’s dexterity and Peer’s proficiency, Haider comes out as a master stroke so say the B-towners who recently attended the special screening of Haider in Mumbai’s Sunny Sound Studio.

The tinsel town went gaga about Haider. It left an immense impact on the celebs. So much was its effect that we saw Irrfan Khan hooked to twitter with all his tweets raving about the film.
