Maqbool | Has It Aged Well?
Manage episode 353212711 series 1344955
This week on ‘Has It Aged Well?’ Abbas and Urjita tackle Shakespeare by revisiting the first film In Vishal Bharadwaj’s Shakepeare trilogy: Maqbool, based upon Macbeth. Joining them for the episode is writer and content creator Aditya Kulshreshtha aka Kullubaazi. Despite Urjita having mistakenly rewatched the other Shakespeare adaptation ‘Omkara’ for this episode the trio manage to stick the landing by keeping the conversation more or less Maqbool centric. Topics covered include: The stellar casting, references to The Godfather, the role of lust in the story, why Lady Macbeth is one of the best villains, the trio’s respective history with the bard, the fantastic use of Urdu and Hindi, Bharadwaj’s inspirations and a lot more.
