Boasting of a brilliant star cast that includes Shahid Kapoor, Kay Kay Menon, Tabu and Shraddha Kapoor, 'Haider' is set against the backdrop of modern-day Kashmir.
'Haider', an adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' is the third in the series by noted filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj.
From Shahid Kapoor's spine-chilling acting as the titular Haider, to Tabu's quiet desperation as his mother, the film is an interesting take on the Bard's popular tragedy.
Shraddha Kapoor portrays the role of Ophelia, Hamlet's love interest in the Shakespearian drama.
Critically-acclaimed actress Tabu plays the part of Gertrude, Hamlet's mother.
When Haider's father disappears, leaving Tabu's character as a "half widow", she marries her brother in-law, portrayed by Kay Kay Menon.
In the play, Gertrude's decision to marry her husband's brother triggers off the drama.
The portrayal of a haunted young man, blinded by thoughts of revenge, comes as a pleasant surprise from Shahid Kapoor, who is usually seen in happy, chirpy, romantic roles.
'Haider' is the third installment of Bhardwaj's Shakespeare trilogy after 'Maqbool' (2003) and 'Omkara' (2006).
'Haider' is scheduled for release on 2 October 2014
