A new Vishal Bhardwaj film is always cause for celebration. Even his weakest films have so much to savour, and in an industry so plagued by intellectual and creative bankruptcy, Bhardwaj is the rare filmmaker who could perhaps truly claim auteur status- he produces, directs, writes, composes- and does all of it with a style so distinctive and quixotic- there’s no mistaking his stamp. We’ve got to admit, we’re fanboys, and unashamedly so.

The much awaited trailer for Mr Bhardwaj’s new film ‘Haider’ has arrived along with a trio of posters. Haider is based on Hamlet and is the final film of his Shakespearean Trilogy (preceded by Maqbool and Omkara) and stars Shahid Kapoor, Tabu, Shraddha Kapoor and Kay Kay Menon among others (including Irrfan Khan in a special appearance).

Notably, Haider has been co-written with Kashmiri author and journalist Basharat Peer and also marks the filmmaker’s first collaboration with cinematographer Pankaj Kumar, who is best known for shooting Anand Gandhi’s Ship Of Theseus. Click here to read an interesting article about Peer’s collaboration with Bhardwaj.

Take a look at the trailer and posters and let us know what you think:

    I’ll start. Being a possible contrarian. 😛

    Alright, kidding. See, I love Bharadwaj. Kaminey might be his only movie I think was, meh. I liked 7 Khoon Maaf too. Not entirely, but quite a lot of it.

    But.. well, y’know… Tinge of absurdism here and there, and Hindi/English mixmatch… It seems to me more on the lines of Mandola than Maqbool. (I can be totally wrong, here.) But that’s the drift I got.

    May be, that’s ’cause of the music. Maybe. I ended up with mixed feelings. And, despite all of it, I’m eagerly waiting for the movie, cause… Insanity forever. And, free flowing imagination forever.
