Haider (2014)

“Intakam se sirf Intakam paida hota hai”

Directed by – Vishal Bhardwaj

Adapted on Hamlet by Shakespeare, the film is one of the handful cinemas from Bollywood that will go down to history someday. It is about Haider, looking for his father, a doctor – who has been captured by the army for treating terrorists in his house. In his quest, he learns of his mother’s affair with his father’s younger brother and becomes skeptical of his own blood relatives leading them responsible for his father’s arrest.

Its stunning how the film manages to weave in and out of the characters, their roles becoming rock solid to make justice and yet, never trying too hard to justify themselves. Its quite a rare experience. Makes us all a little bit proud to be Indians and a hope that more and more films with such chutzpah will find a way to hit our screens.

Loved it to the core.

The namesake (2006)

The namesake

 Director – Mira Nair

I am so in mood to fall in love with Indian cinema. Its a pity that I call myself a film buff when I haven’t watched the best films ever made. The namesake is a film based on a book by Jhumpa Lahiri. It tells the story of a couple who moved to England and then America where they brought up their children, its the story of a young boy is named after his father’s favourite author – the author who changed his life, its the story of a mother, a father, a son and no, the daughter’s part is kinda excluded in the whole picture. Nevertheless. Amazing film.

Maqbool (2003)

From the way it starts to the way it ends – its beyond-language- amazing! Big names are associated with it, from the actors to the backstage artists. It had to be out of the world. Beautiful film – based on the Indian background of Shakespeare’s play ‘Macbeth’.
