Omkara Reviews

Shakespeare would have felt JEALOUS!
Aug 11, 2006 08:12 PMRead
I wonder why people are saying that Shakespeare would have smiled after watching Omkara. I don’t think so! He would have felt jealous, by the fact that his work is adapted in another country and it is made into a more nice way than the original!!The main characters in the movie:Omi Shukl...Read More

Vishal Bhardwaj and Shakespere at their best......
Mar 07, 2016 11:21 AMRead
The Duo of Vishal and Gulzar saab had been my all time favourite. And this is another master piece. These guys understand the Indian culture from its roots. The adaptation from Othello to Omkara was fabulous.The plot is based upon the theme of deep love and hence the deep belief of loyality ...Read More

Where Kerchief Was Replaced By Waistband!
Aug 19, 2013 10:08 AMRead
Story of Shakespeare's Othello & Desdemona. Indian Movie Directors mapped the story written by the British Literary figure to a remote Indian village lifestyle – probably because they have not been able to forgive what the British officers did to us while they ruled over us!Many things to le...Read More

A Perfect Adaptation
May 19, 2007 01:32 PMRead
Omkara, a Kumar Mangat produced film is based on Shakespeare’s 17th century classic Othello. The film is a tragic love story and above all depicts the varied negative human emotions that accompany the feeling of love. Vishal Bharadwaj who made his foray into bollywood as a music composer has dir...Read More

It should have been named "Langra Tyagi".....
Apr 29, 2007 07:23 PMRead
Vishal Bharadwaj's Indian adaptation of Shakespeare's "Othello" is one of the very few movies churned out in the hindi film industry which can be termed as a "classic". It is one and there are many reasons for it. The director had earlier done justice to Maqbool (which was adapted from "Macbeth"...Read More

A FEAST FOR YOUR MIND AND SENSES
Feb 18, 2007 09:11 PMRead
WE KNOW OTHELLO IS A UNIVERSAL THEME , SET IN VENICE IT CAN BE HAPPENNING ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD , BUT VISHAL TAKES IT TO THE COWBELT in india and sets it in a rural surrounding with a genuine dialect  AND A VERY INDIGENOUS INDIAN SETTING , IM NOT GOING TO DISCUSS THE PLOT AS EVERYONES AWARE OF I...Read More

A indian twist to othelio, saif's best performence
Feb 14, 2007 08:12 AMRead
This movie was a breakthrough for Karena and saif. They were both given the role of a lifetime. They stepped out of their cool guy/ girl personality and stepped into shakespear (Indian style).Ajay as usual played his role with a fine job but his character is nothing new compared to: company....Read More

Feb 12, 2007 12:07 AMRead
Omkara, Vishal Bharadwaj's adaptation of Shakespeare's Othello, is one of those rare best movies which are stunningly true in details and spirit to the original despite the substantial changes necessitated for contextual picturisation in Uttar Pradesh. This is one of the finest Hindi movies made...Read More

Omkara wud make shakespeare proud
Feb 11, 2007 11:38 PMRead
If you want to adapt, adapt like this. Vishal Bhardwaj’s this work of art must have made even Shakespeare proud. Shakespeare’s “Othello” could not have been more authentic and realistic than  “Omkara” in India. This film is a perfect example of excellent cinema, not only terms of direction or pe...Read More

FLAWLESS PERFORMANCE........
Oct 25, 2006 06:24 PMRead
This one beats all the previous "hit" films. It is one of the masterpieces of all the great directors. the story, although, is a borrowed concept yet placing the characters in the right order and potraying them exactly like the original characters in itself is a huge task which the director has ...Read More

N my opinion

In my opinion in this flim ajay's role and it played by ajay is not satisfactory. rather in this movie saif played a good role and his performance was also so good. in fact in my view saif fit for this type of role. but kareena kapor played good role and as well as her acting is also good but th...Read More

Awesome
Oct 17, 2006 03:28 AMRead
Though the script has a bit slow pace but the dialogues, cinematography and cast performance made the film really an awesome. The intensity and the characterization of the film were quite heavy and were very delivered very inovatively.The movie uses an abusive and harsh language but it goes ...Read More

Well-made 'Our' Othello
Oct 03, 2006 02:44 PMRead
Vishal’s Maqbool, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, must have been a learning experience for him. Everything about the film was right…….except the star quotient and the marketing. Being an intelligent director Vishal must have realized the value of both soon and got it right with his next ...Read More

Of Shakespeare and cell phones
Oct 01, 2006 07:23 AMRead
Shakespeare's stories and characters have always transcended the times. His Othello (The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice), set against the backdrop of the late 16th century battles between Venice and Turkey, is considered one of his best tragedies, and is much ballyhooed for how it shows ...Read More

Nitty gritty of vengeance
Sep 28, 2006 04:25 PMRead
I have never underestimated the directorial prowess of Vishal Bhardwaj ever but here I must corroborate the fact that it is an extremely exacting effort to put a creative masterpiece of the great dramatist William Shakespeare into a three hour gory grueling melodrama.I need not earmark the crede...Read More

Sep 17, 2006 08:55 PMRead
Shakespeare I guess was a dude. Long back, sitting undera tree in some European forest, he mastered human traits like vanity, love, trust, hatred, betrayal, friendship and others.Vishal Bhradwaj I guess is from the same batch. He is not just another dude. He is even better. Centuries later a...Read More

His films are as offbeat as his musical compositions yet both manage to touch a chord in the audience heart. After the hugely successful Makdee and the critically acclaimed Maqbool, director Vishal Bharadwaj is back with Omkara, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello. Vishal has juxtaposed this ...Read More

Omkara..finally a good movie from Bollywood!
Sep 13, 2006 07:45 PMRead
I went to see Omkara after reading very good reviews, though I was quite skeptical because I read excellent reviews about Gangster which I didn't like very much.The story of Omkara is based on the classic 'Othello' by Shakespeare. The director has beautifully pictured the story in the villag...Read More

Omkara - a difference
Sep 12, 2006 05:48 PMRead
It is something different after a long time. The village scene and the village culture of the Zamidars has been projected in the movie. The plot is good but has some loose holes . it should have been more well knitted with sequence. There could have been a better ending also. I recomend all to s...Read More
