According to Bhardwaj, his adaptation of the Shakespearean tragedy will be a human- interest story set on the backdrop of the present-day Kashmir. "Every character is Kashmiri in my film. It is the story of the people of Kashmir--both in period and present."

What does it mean by human-interest story?

In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way.[1] It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.

The film looks to be explosive..Kashmir is such a sensitive topic..a hindi film with tragedy genre hasn't come for a long time now..I think..can't wait..

From what I can gather...Shahid would play Hamlet...Shraddha would play Shahid's love interest (Ophelia) , Tabu will play Shahid's mother (Gertrude) 

Secondary roles - Laertes (Shraddha's brother), Horatio (Shahid's friend), Polonius (Shraddha's father)

Villain - Claudius (Shahid's uncle)

Very interesting role for Shahid..Has very strong feelings but does not show outside..keeps people in doubt as to his actual feelings & next moves..half the time he is just acting..

He feels disgust towards his mother & tries to shame her, is full of anger & revenge towards uncle, contemplates suicide, acts as if mad, acts nasty towards his love..

Shraddha's role also looks good..she is a pawn in the hands of her family...Actually goes mad..


Hamlet -  The Prince of Denmark, the title character, and the protagonist. About thirty years old at the start of the play, Hamlet is the son of Queen Gertrude and the late King Hamlet, and the nephew of the present king, Claudius. Hamlet is melancholy, bitter, and cynical, full of hatred for his uncle's scheming and disgust for his mother's sexuality. A reflective and thoughtful young man who has studied at the University of Wittenberg, Hamlet is often indecisive and hesitant, but at other times prone to rash and impulsive acts.

Read an in-depth analysis of Hamlet.

Claudius -  The King of Denmark, Hamlet's uncle, and the play's antagonist. The villain of the play, Claudius is a calculating, ambitious politician, driven by his sexual appetites and his lust for power, but he occasionally shows signs of guilt and human feeling"his love for Gertrude, for instance, seems sincere.

Read an in-depth analysis of Claudius.

Gertrude -  The Queen of Denmark, Hamlet's mother, recently married to Claudius. Gertrude loves Hamlet deeply, but she is a shallow, weak woman who seeks affection and status more urgently than moral rectitude or truth.

Read an in-depth analysis of Gertrude.

Polonius -  The Lord Chamberlain of Claudius's court, a pompous, conniving old man. Polonius is the father of Laertes and Ophelia.
Horatio -  Hamlet's close friend, who studied with the prince at the university in Wittenberg. Horatio is loyal and helpful to Hamlet throughout the play. After Hamlet's death, Horatio remains alive to tell Hamlet's story.
Ophelia -  Polonius's daughter, a beautiful young woman with whom Hamlet has been in love. Ophelia is a sweet and innocent young girl, who obeys her father and her brother, Laertes. Dependent on men to tell her how to behave, she gives in to Polonius's schemes to spy on Hamlet. Even in her lapse into madness and death, she remains maidenly, singing songs about flowers and finally drowning in the river amid the flower garlands she had gathered.
Laertes -  Polonius's son and Ophelia's brother, a young man who spends much of the play in France. Passionate and quick to action, Laertes is clearly a foil for the reflective Hamlet.
Fortinbras -  The young Prince of Norway, whose father the king (also named Fortinbras) was killed by Hamlet's father (also named Hamlet). Now Fortinbras wishes to attack Denmark to avenge his father's honor, making him another foil for Prince Hamlet.
The Ghost -  The specter of Hamlet's recently deceased father. The ghost, who claims to have been murdered by Claudius, calls upon Hamlet to avenge him. However, it is not entirely certain whether the ghost is what it appears to be, or whether it is something else. Hamlet speculates that the ghost might be a devil sent to deceive him and tempt him into murder, and the question of what the ghost is or where it comes from is never definitively resolved.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern -  Two slightly bumbling courtiers, former friends of Hamlet from Wittenberg, who are summoned by Claudius and Gertrude to discover the cause of Hamlet's strange behavior.
Osric -  The foolish courtier who summons Hamlet to his duel with Laertes.
Voltimand and Cornelius -  Courtiers whom Claudius sends to Norway to persuade the king to prevent Fortinbras from attacking.
Marcellus and Bernardo -  The officers who first see the ghost walking the ramparts of Elsinore and who summon Horatio to witness it. Marcellus is present when Hamlet first encounters the ghost.
Francisco -  A soldier and guardsman at Elsinore.
Reynaldo -  Polonius's servant, who is sent to France by Polonius to check up on and spy on Laertes.

Irrfan to haunt Vishal's Hamlet

Irrfan to haunt Vishal's Hamlet
Vishal Bhardwaj is all set to roll the last of his Shakespearean Trilogy. 

Titled Hyder, the film is an adaptation of Hamlet-the dark revenge tragedy that has caught the imagination of readers for over 400 years. And after Tabu, Shahid Kapoor, and Shraddha Kapoor, the latest to join the cast is Irrfan Khan. The actor will be making in a special appearance in the film. 

According to sources, Irrfan will play the ghost of the newlydead king Hamlet who torments young Hamlet urging him to avenge his murder, which sets in motion a trail of events that eventually destroys the entire family as well as the state. 

Initially, Vishal wanted to start his trilogy with Hamlet and wanted Irrfan to play the protagonist. But it took him a long time to put the project together and now Irrfan can no longer fit the role of the young prince of Denmark. 

This is the second time Irrfan, Tabu and Vishal will team up after the critically acclaimed Maqbool, which was based on Shakespeare's Macbeth. 

Irrfan has also worked with Vishal in 7 Khoon Maaf, while with Tabu he has done two other films -- Life of Pi and The Namesake.

Am excited for this film. Vishal is back to doing what he does best: Remakes of Shakespeare stories. I think this film is going to be along the lines of Omkara. Omkara was a brilliant movie with brilliant performances. Shahid is lucky to be part of this film and am sure he will be great in the film!

So excited for this film!

VB back in action with his Shakesperean Themes and Shahid, IMO, would make a kick-ass Hamlet!!!
 
Looking forward to this one!
