Kaustubh H (au) wrote: It's very late but finally I watched this. Perhaps this is also Vishal Bhardwaj's best work being almost comparable to Maqbool. Haider is the Indian adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet, a tale of revenge set in the Kashmir valley during the height of militancy. This very backdrop ensures that the story would be riveting and the visuals amazing. Bhardwaj uses the bleak, wonter landscape of Kashmir and paints them with even darker shades. An honorable doctor, his troubled son, a distanced wife and a creep of an uncle. Haider follows most of Hamlet the way it was albeit raising some very important human rights issues in Kashmir. The army loyalists blasted this film but after watching it I see no reason why there should have been an issue. Firstly, the AFSPA is only a minor part of the film and secondly the film never forces the judgment on its audience. Also bolstering the act is an absolutely stellar cast. Even Shraddha Kapoor impresses. Tabu is her usual class and so is Kay Kay Menon, his pre-election campaign hauntingly reminiscent of Gulaal. Irrfan Khan makes an impact in his guest appearance. But finally it is Shahid Kapoor who OWNS the show. His expressions are dramatic and he plays the sad guy, the angry man and the madman with equal ease. Faiz Ahmed Faiz's diaogues are noteworthy and especially the dance drama that Haider performs to enact his tragedy. The film wraps up in vintage Vishal Bhardwaj style, with a cult soundtrack, raining bullets and ultimately redemption where it diverges from the original Hamlet. It is a film to be leisurely relished, each character a story on its own. Well why not the full five stars? Well because I was not too happy with Shahid and Tabu's contact lenses and the very fake looking blood in the end! ;)

Still, what elevates this film above schlock is the two wonderful lead performances by Chadwick Boseman and Nelsan Ellis (portraying Bobby Byrd). As Brown, Boseman embodies the man and his many reinventions with his entire soul. He throws everything he has got into his channeling of the "Hardest Working Man in Show Biz." Ellis also carries a lot of the hefty dramatic scenes with great aplomb in his role. The supporting cast is full of some other fine acting from the likes of Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, and (an underutilized) Craig Robinson.

Brandon S (mx) wrote: The Hughes brothers have certainly created something interesting but not compelling at all.This film shows the lives of inner city black boys during the 1960s. This interesting and bold crime drama follows them as they travel to fight in Vietnam and then return home to embrace a life of crime and violence.The film feels as though its perpetuating many stereotypes surrounding black people in the 1960s. It has no serious creativity to speak of and is monopolized by excessive gory violence and profanity. The violence was far to extreme for what the directors could've done with it. The acting is fair but flawed many times throughout the film. It's often times unnatural and misplaced. The writing just didn't have me convinced. In the past we've seen talent and ambition from the Hughes brothers, but they just slipped up.Larenz Tate shows promise but he doesn't push himself hard enough to grab the viewer. Keith David, has had a very mixed bag of a career and has always performed great in his lower budget films, but like in this one he lets himself get overshadowed the rest of the cast in more big budget films. Chris Tucker was very ambiguous and strange but all-in-all great. He isn't trying to be dramatic or serious, most people would throw off the entire atmosphere of the film with decisions like this but he really pulls it off.Overall, it wasn't a bad movie by any means it just has a generic atmosphere, unconvincing writing, and unnatural acting. Altough the base of the plot is fairly solid the Hughes brothers just don't carry it anywhere.
Jenn B (nl) wrote: Though the story revolves around destiny and love at first sight (who wouldn't fall in love with Meg Ryan, really? The woman's the Zooey Deschanel of 90s!), it's nice that the story also tells you not just to settle. (But it's also movies like this that can make people doubt their happiness in a relationship however good it is, so it's best not to watch this too much or even believe in it.) Laughed lots of times watching this. (Thanks, Nora Ephron!) And cried a little (Shh.)
Tyler R (ag) wrote: It was a passable 90s action movie. The plot was basic. The action very very gritty and violent. There was a lot more humor in the movie then I was expecting.
John D (es) wrote: Pierce Brosnan would have to wait another few years to play in the major leagues after this perfect example of how not to make a tough guy with a soft side, vs. the overwhelming heavies, big screen outing. Only Alan Stanford, as a remarkably precise precursor to quite a few 21st Century Irish property developers, emmerges with his reputation preserved.
Ess Q (au) wrote: OMG- I don't give the plot in my reviews, but you are going to want to get the soundtrack to this one. What an extraordinary take on the ordinary story. I netflixed this and had no idea when it started what to expect. If you aren't a fan of Terrance Stamp or don't know of his acting abilities, you will never forget him after this performance. The son and granddaughter are a nice touch but not necessary (easy for me to say when I don't have family) but the relationship between the Redgrave and Stamp and then Stamp and the choir director is priceless and surreal as it feels natural and like they have acted together forever!
Gary J (br) wrote: Really a fun little movie. Great cast with lots of folks you will recognize. Beautiful scenery, not the least of which is Katharine McPhee. She's amazing. She acts. She dances. She sings. So hot in this movie. Good gags. Lots of action. Highly recommend if you want a sweet little movie.
