The Vishal Bhardwaj film 'Haider' managed to impress the critics but failed to show results at the box-office. Having made a film that represents Bollywood's version of Shakespeare's famous literary work 'Hamlet', it had low commercial value. Since the film didn't quite include elements of the Bollywood masala that the Indian audiences like, it had a very low occupancy in cinema halls on the opening day.
Though the film failed to attract success on the first day, it is likely to catch up over the weekend. This film starring Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Tabu was well appreciated by critics and will mostly appeal to the multiplex audience. Shahid Kapoor who plays the role of 'Haider' in this film is busy receiving applause for his performance in the film. This film is distributed under the banner of UTV Motion Pictures.
