Synopsis: The much-hyped, keenly-anticipated OMKARA, an adaptation of Shakespeare's OTHELLO, hits the screens today. 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.
