5 Reasons to Watch Haider

The film Haider created ripples in the film industry as much as amongst the audience with its release. The film dealt with a sensitive issue and intelligently handled it. It was a graceful attempt at dealing with the yet raw wound for which it suffered the fury of the Hindu right-wing and the Muslim fundamentalists alike. Many claimed that the film glorified the terrorists but not many plunged to see the uber-humane message that could do away with a nasty terrorist outlook. With William Shakespeare's famous tragedy, Hamlet as the backing for the picturesque film, the film did very well by gaining the confidence of the intellectual and socially forward class. We give you Top 5 reasons why you ought to watch this film: 

If you are human...

 

Yes, if you are a human and you connect with humanity. If you believe that we are universal souls first and then belong to our Nationality and religion, you ought to watch this film. It is innately sensitive towards every human.

If you are emotional...

You shall connect with this film if your EQ levels have always been high. You shall connect with a helpless mother, a rebellious son, a hopeless lover, an enraged brother and a dutiful father when you watch this film. But we bet that the helplessness of a mother will engulf you and leave you writhing in pain. 

If you are a cinephile...

Every movie buff who has had a great inclination towards world cinema, ought not to miss this magnum opus. 

If you are a bibliophile...

 

You are a nerd and you are proud of it. You have read every Greek and Shakespearean tragedy and can quote it word to word, then this film is made for you.

For the love of Chutzpah…

If you were amongst those who wondered what this word really meant and why was the world raving about it and rubbing it in with every passing social post, then you must to truly watch Haider.
