The “Kahaani” of Vishal Bhardwaj and Shakespeare is something that every movie buff and aspiring filmmaker from India must know. It is about Vishal Bhardwaj’s genius work in cinema and how it keeps on inspiring us. Vishal Bhardwaj has gained worldwide fame for his Shakespearean Trilogy.

 

 

Let’s know more about Vishal Bhardwaj’s Shakespearean trilogy.

 

 

1. Maqbool (2004)

      Maqbool was an official adaptation of Macbeth, a tragedy by William Shakespeare. And so the bond of Vishal Bhardwaj and Shakespeare began.

      The Story and Screenplay inspired and adapted from Macbeth were written by Vishal Bhardwaj and Abbas Tyrewala. And perfectly apt changes were made to fit the story in 2004.

      Every actor nailed their jobs to perfection. This movie didn’t perform well commercially but gave everybody the sense of Vishal Bhardwaj’s craftsmanship.

      Pankaj Kapur went on to win a National Award for Best Supporting Actor.

      IMDB RATING: 8.1/10 

 

 

2. Omkara (2006)

      The Second Vishal Bhardwaj and Shakespeare bond formed Omkara. It was an official adaptation of Othello, another tragedy from “THE BARD OF AVON,” William Shakespeare.

      The Story and Screenplay were written by Vishal Bhardwaj, Robin Bhatt, Abhishek Chaubey. The adaptation was beautifully moulded into a story set in Meerut, UP.

      The movie was also especially appreciated for its dialogues. Proper regional lingo was used by the writers and actors to make this film even more convincing and brilliant.

      The film bagged three National Film Awards and 9 Filmfare Awards.

      The film also was a Box Office success.

      IMDB RATING: 8.1/10

3. Haider (2014)

      Haider was the third one in the relationship between Vishal Bhardwaj and Shakespeare. It is an official adaptation of Hamlet, a tragedy by William Shakespeare.

      The Story and Screenplay were also inspired by Basharat Peer’s memoir Curfewed Nights and written by Basharat Peer and Vishal Bhardwaj. The film was beautifully expressed through the vision of Vishal Bhardwaj and was set in Kashmir, India.

      This film is full of fantastic performances, from Shahid Kapoor playing Haider (Hamlet) to Kay Kay Menon playing Khurram Meer (Claudius).

      Haider was the first to win the People’s Choice Award at the Rome Film Festival. It also won 5 National Film Awards.

      IMDB RATING: 8.1/10
