OMKARA SITE UP

Omkara

After a long hunt for a title, Vishal Bharadwaj's adaptation of OTHELLO has settled on OMKARA and its site has opened. Featuring an all-star cast, and with a release date of July 28, this is the second major adaptation of Shakespeare to come from Asia this year, the other being THE BANQUET from China. As far as I can tell the cast breaks down as:

Ajay Devgan - Othello
Saif Ali Khan - Iago
Kareena Kapoor - Desdemonda

from what I have heard this is going to be a cross between a gangster film and a spaghetti western. vishal’s first shakespeare adaptation maqbool(macbeth) was a pretty impressive gangster film, in fact probably the only good indian gangster film ever made outside the rgv camp. vishal said maqbool was very ram gopal varma while omkara will be very sergio leone, it should be interesting
