Omkara
Omkara. 2006. India.
Directed by Vishal Bhardwaj


Omkara. 2006. India. Directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. Screenplay by Bhardwaj, Robin Bhatt, Abishek Chaubey, baaed on William Shakespeare’s Othello. With Ajay Devgan, Saif Ali Khan, Viveik Oberoi. Transforming the bandlands of Uttar Pradesh into a modern-day mob underworld, Bhardwaj’s freewheeling, feverish adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy is one of Indian cinema’s triumphs of 2006. Leading a stellar Bollywood cast, charismatic actor Kahn plays against type as the dastardly Iago-figure Langda Tyagi, a loyal henchman to half-caste bandit chief Omkara (Devgan plays the brooding Othello character to the hilt). When the politically calculating Omkara favors an impetuous playboy over Langda to be his lieutenant, the villainous gangster plots a deliciously devious revenge on them both. In Hindi, English subtitles. Courtesy Eros Entertainment. 151 min.
