Omkara (2006)

null
Omkara, an indian adaptation of Shakespeare’s OTHELLO, is a movie made both for the masses and classes. It dares to swim against the tide. It defies the set rules of commercial cinema. It’s not one of those candyfloss films. It’s not sunshine cinema either. Nor does it follow trends… OMKARA is a serious film, about real people, about real emotions.

The much-hyped, keenly-anticipated OMKARA, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s OTHELLO, is reloaded. With a mammoth star cast and a gifted director [Vishal Bhardwaj] at the helm of affairs, OMKARA is expected to prove a trailblazer, not only winning acclaim from those who appreciate realistic cinema, but also satisfying the needs of entertainment-seeking moviegoers.

Hollywood has, in the past, attempted cinematic adaptation of Shakespeare’s works, including several versions of OTHELLO. Although the original-source is Western, Vishal Bhardwaj and his team of writers have placed the plot in the Indian milieu…in the heartland of India, to be more specific.

Attempting a film like OMKARA requires courage. It dares to swim against the tide. It defies the set rules of commercial cinema. It’s not one of those candyfloss films. It’s not sunshine cinema either. Nor does it follow trends… OMKARA is a serious film, about real people, about real emotions. You may find it dark at times. Also disturbing. And the generous usage of expletives [MCs, BCs, Cs] and dialogues [sample: Teri aur meri kismet gadhe ke *@!# se likhi gayee hain] could give you a cold sweat.

Clearly, OMKARA is not everybody’s cup of tea, not everyone’s idea of entertainment…
