Omkaara: Indian Othello?

So now our very own bollywood is coming out with an indian adaptation of shakespeare’s Othello.

With a star cast of Ajay Devgan, Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Konkana Sen, Vivek Oberoi and bipasha Basu, the director stands a chance to make the movie’s presence felt at the box office. The variety in the star cast might work in its favour. I only hope that ajay, saif, kareena and konkana manage to pull it off if not superbly, but atleast good enough.

The promo looks quite promising with saif being a highlight with his small crop. Kareena appears sans makeup after a long time. I am not too sure what to expect out of Vivek and Bipasha in such a movie.

I dont know but somehow the promo reminded me of Bandit Queen and Shool mixed in one !

    Seen Omkaara-really wonderful-frankly the complexity of Othello-Omkaara’s character could have been developed further, especially with a marvellous actor like Ajay Devgan. But Saif Ali Khan as Iago-Lungda takes the character to a whole new dimension. The movie is worth watching only for these two actors. On the whole Vishal Bharadvaj has done a commendable job, much better than Maqbool-Macbeth. Hoping for a Julius Caesar-Jyotiraaditya(??) from him! Alll the Best.
