Macbeth meets the Godfather in present-day Bombay. The Scottish tragedy set in the contemporary underworld of India’s commercial capital; two corrupt, fortune telling policemen take the roles of the weird sisters, and “Duncan” is Abbaji, the head of a crime family. Abbaji’s mistress and Maqbool plot and carry out his death; the sea plays the role of Birnham wood.
User Reviews: I just watched this film and I must say I was stunned. A modern day adaptation of Macbeth, director Vishal Bharadwaj takes full advantage of his hugely talented cast, and full kudos to his direction. He is one to look out for! Performance-wise, Om Puri and Nasseruddin Shah are good, Tabu is great, and Irfan Khan is mind-blowing. But it is Pankaj Kapur who steals the show. He’s such an amazing performer. Overall, Maqbool is a class act. Watch it right now!
