In one of its opening scenes, a Kashmiri doctor performs surgery on a sick and dying terrorist, in his home attic. He's not coerced into that by the terrorist's unhurt teammates, he is the one who diagnoses that the wounded terrorist urgently needs surgery, he then volunteers to take the terrorist and a couple of his teammates home. The following day, Indian Army follows a trail of breadcrumbs that leads them to the doctor's house. They follow procedure, and tell the holed up terrorists to voluntarily surrender, so that nobody gets hurt. Terrorists don't comply. CO sends in in a small team to breach. The team is ambushed. Massive firefight ensues. The terrorists force the CO's hand to use an RPG to blast out a wall. The doctor is arrested. Sounds like an open-and-shut case? No! Vishal Bharadwaj wants you to feel sorry for the doctor, because his oh-so-homely home was blown up by an evil Indian RPG. The opening scene sets you up for a dysentric vomit of a movie, which is as terrible an adaptation of Hamlet, as Rajneeti was of the Mahabharata (I've studied the original Hamlet). Bharadwaj uses textbook Paki/Hamas logic to twist and turn the facts of a situation, to make it appear as if the Indian Army in Kashmir is Nazi Army in France (WWII), and that Indians have only done evil things in J&K. The attempt to add neutrality to the subject is so halfhearted, it's almost intended to have the opposite effect. An Army spokesperson is made to answer a lady journalist in an almost masochistic way that "but we [the Army] also prevented your rape by Pakistanis." A south-Indian JCO is casually slurred as "Masala Dosa" by the protagonists. So loose is Bharadwaj's adaptation of Hamlet, that the Indian Army and the Kashmir Conflict of the mid-1990s are used as plot-devices, in a very cruel and unfair way. Watch as Haider summarily judges India and Indian Army as evil, just because his daddy was arrested by the Army for sheltering terrorists (which by law makes him an accomplice to terrorism). Haider expects the Army to release his father just because the army didn't happen to follow AFSPA to the book...despite knowing fully that his father sheltered terrorists, and that death is an approved penalty for terrorism under Indian law! Words can't express the chootiyapa of Bharadwaj's logic!! The first half is spent almost entirely on similar incidents of India-bashing, based on twisted facts, and flawed interpretation of a situation. The Army and the Kashmir conflict are then discarded like whores, right from the first scene of the second half, in which the film descends into a cliched, overacted adaptation of Hamlet. Mommy cheated on daddy, lead "traitorous" uncle to point the Army in daddy's direction, boo hoo nada nada. Did you ever find yourself in a situation where you're dying to use that word you just learned in a sentence? And then ended up using that word inappropriately? Haider is like that. Vishal was dying to bash India, he then used Shakespeare's Hamlet to do that, and inappropriately. Like Rajdeep Sardesai, Vishal Bharadwaj is a venomous reptile who has mastered the art of masking blatant sedition with freedom of expression.
