As promised, UTV premiered the trailer of Vishal Bharadwaj‘s latest Shakespearean feat Haider on Wednesday July 9th, along with its main cast in attendance, including the director, his wife and the fantastic Kay Kay Menon (Life in a Metro, Sarkar), who also appears in the film in a nefarious  role, at PVR Cinemas in Mumbai.

This is the week for releases for just yesterday, there was comedic hero Inspector Singham and today, we have tragic anti-hero Haider, for Vishal Bharadwaj‘s reimagining of “Hamlet” released its first posters’ peek.  A couple months ago there were buzz-cut images of a solitary Shahid Kapoor as our first glimpse of him in character, while news of Tabu filming her debut singing spot has been trickling in since the beginning of the month.

On Wednesday, stars Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor will follow Parineeti and Aditya‘s July 7th lead and  “take over YouTube” with an all-day exclusive look at the official trailer along with opportunity to interact with the team that made this movie happen.

What happens when two people that never should date end up on the course to marriage? Nothing good, at least not without a few songs, a few flashbacks and a mission.

Gori Tere Pyar Mein, released last Fall, making  it the second directorial project from filmmaker Punit Malhotra. And though I enjoyed the premise and cheekiness of his debut film, I Hate Luv Storys, GTPM, made quite a different impression. What worked well with his first film— a hero that doesn’t take love seriously, falls into a serious kind of love— remains his backbone here, with a few major turns and hiccups.
