There's a common Misconception that the film was given U/A certificate after 41 cuts by Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), which included a corpse loaded truck, wire being inserted inside a naked man, bloody dead body, abusive language, etc. But the director, Vishal Bharadwaj once stated to the media that the CBFC asked for only 7 cuts. The rest were voluntarily done for a tighter screenplay and for more diluting the explicit violent scenes considering a UA(unrestricted public exhibition ,with recommended parental guidance for viewers of age below 12) certificate.

[Around 01:03:48] The Kashmir daily being read by Roohdaar shows its print date as "Thursday December 6, 1995". However, December 6, 1995 was a Wednesday. There are other plenty of grammatical and spelling errors in the print, such as "but" with a capital B in the headlines, "braged" in place of barged, "descision" instead of decision, etc. Moreover, the news stories under the news "briefs" do not correlate with their headlines.

Haider as a must-watch, as it has a phenomenal story, which is backed up by amazing performances by every actor but Shahid Kapoor shines in this movie, this is his best performance as of now. Despite that, I got bored a few times, but then I instantly got interested, and this happened a few times throughout the movie.
