“A brilliant adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet” –Entertainment Times
Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj is famous for his epic Shakespeare adaptations, translating the violence and politics of the Bard’s plays to modern India. His third (after variations on Macbeth and Othello) is this intense version of Hamlet set in the turbulent state of Kashmir. But in Bhardwaj’s hands, the fateful story becomes a beautifully crafted drama about a troubled mother (Bollywood star Tabu) and her vengeful son. With post-screening panel featuring director Vishal Bhardwaj, Sara B.T. Thiel, Public Humanities manager at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, and Regina Buccola, Professor of English and Chair of the Humanities at Roosevelt University in Chicago.
