OMKARA-The Adaptation of Othello

OMKARA-The Adaptation of Othello

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
I rarely find promos of any movie interesting,but I was very curious about Omkara since I missed MAQBOOL(adptation of Mackbeth by multitalented Vishal Bhardwaj featuring Tabu etc.,).
Despite not having slept well due to one week of stuffing OBG into my head continuously,I landed at the theater on the first day of release,2 hours early.haha,even the ticket counter was not open.Finally,armed with a bhutta compensating for lunch,I glued myself to theatre seat.At first I had to concentrate hard on the Bhojpuri mixed hindi,later it was okay.The sets near mumbai well replace wastelands of UP as a backdrop for Omkara.I must say,it is lovely adaptation...SAif and Devgan kept me marvelling at thier acting all through the movie. Hmmm...as usual,Kareena Kapoor is as insipid as her skin tone as the Indian Desdemona and Vivek Oberoi is fit to be the devdas in newspapre reports about Aishwarya Rai..Totally unimpressive and lacklustre.I loved Saif's pan stained teeth and unbelievable foul mouthing he does in the movie as Landa Tyagi aka Iago.Absolutely lovable Saif to the point that he was giving me an impression that he will one day deliver something like Sharmila Tagore's Aaradhana.
I had never touched Shakespeare in my life.Omkara has opened Shakespeare's world to me.Now I know the magic of his plays.My head was buried in obstetrics last week and now,it is buried in COMPLETE WORKS OF SHAKESPEARE....Oh my GOd!Why am I not a student of literature?!
Hmmm....unofficially,maybe I am,and will be one all my life:)
