Great Indian Movies - Maqbool
May 15, 2006 06:02 AMRead
Maqbool is a special extension of my five best realistically treated gangster movie series. Despite Maqbool falling in same gangster genre as Nayakan, Parinda, Satya, Vaastav, and Company, it deserves special mention being its inspired adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth.According to G.R. El...Read More

Maqbool, a study in guilt
May 04, 2006 10:24 PMRead
Maqbool is easily one of contemporary cinema’s most masterful creations. Today is the third time I saw it, and no other film ever has made me as much uncomfortable by the sheer intensity on the screen. Every masterly stroke, every look, every moan, every word of dialogue is accounted for. ...Read More

The rise and fall of Maqbool
Aug 23, 2005 04:22 PMRead
When the country's best actors get together, you expect nothing short of a brilliant film. Based on Shakespeare's Macbeth, Vishal Bharadwaj's Maqbool is set in Bombay's present-day underworld. The film is about Maqbool, Appaji's trusted side kick, who falls in love with Appaji's mistress, Nimmi....Read More

Review : From the trailors MAqbool sounded another underworld movie, full of bloodshed and meaningless fighting, so I didn't bother to watch it. it was some few months back when I was just changing the T.V. channels n I saw such a beautiful white haveli with such an excellent cinematogrophy, whe...Read More

Tabu as pure as Hardy's Tess
May 25, 2005 12:25 PMRead
When I saw Maqbool first time, I wanted to make sure I understood everything. I didn’t wish to leave anything at the back. Tabu was more characterized by Abbaji’s dynasty. She lived in an estate she never desired of. She was respected by everyone she didn’t care about. She was loved by the man s...Read More

Maqbool is a remarkable adaptation of Shakespearean Macbeth, with an Indian touch to it. The sufi sounding music, bambaiyya underworld, a perfect cast makes the film special. Despite the restrained budget and the lack of glamour as compared to other contemporary underworld flicks, this film make...Read More

There are originals and then there are adaptations. In cinema, it has been observed that most of the adaptations of great literary works are hardly ever able to stand on a firm footing when compared to the originals, which by their sheer originality are always a class apart.Maqbool, however ...Read More

The eyes speak volumes in Vishal Bharadwaj?s Maqbool They spar silently, they meet across a room full of people, they observe through rear view mirrors, and they convey much where words would have fallen short. The unstated assumes importance in the movie, elevating it to a masterpiece.Panka...Read More

No mean task, as my brother says, but here is a film that invites praise of the highest order. And no, it is not because it boasts of some of the finest actors in the country, and ...Read More

Justice To The Soul Of Macbeth
Feb 19, 2004 09:18 PMRead
I watched Maqbool recently and I think Vishal Bhardwaj has done justice to Shakespeare?s all time classic Macbeth.Same as Macbeth, Maqbool is a poetry of pain and agony echoing in all directions. Evil and sinister things have taken the place of all that is good and just. Events flow with a p...Read More

I had already heard positive reviews about this movie at my campus something which you don't often hear. Normally you will find someone or the other blasting a movie. But for 'Maqbool' it was different, if someone loved 'Abbaji' then someone liked 'Maqbool'......I watched a late night show o...Read More
