OMKARA - Ajay Devgan,Naseeruddin Shah, Saif Ali Khan, Vivek Oberoi, Kareena Kapoor,Konkana Sen.

Omkara-Based on Shakespeare's OTHELLO--- it couldn't be bad at all! Othello is one of the tragedy acts of Shakespeare. It revolves around that human emotion commonly known as “ Jealousy”. As we know, IAGO is the bad man in Othello and Cassio was the lieutenant whom IAGO was jealous of...Omkara is played by Ajay Devgan and Omkara has his own IAGO in Langda Tyagi played by Saif Ali Khan. Obviously the whole movie is concentrated on Langda Tyagi and his diabolic intentions. I must say Saif Ali Khan has done justice to the role of IAGO! He plays it so excellently that we just love to hate him.Vivek Oberoi and Kareena Kapoor are not bad in their roles. Naseeruddin Shah is the head/chief/kingpin- call him whatever you like. His presence always is, entertaining to say the least. The dialogues are quite bold considering it to be a Bollywood movie. All in all, it's a well-made show... If you like tragedies, go for this one. If you don't, still go for this one coz you might miss out on Saif Ali Khan (Langda Tyagi)! He is just superb in his role and I give him a 10/10 for his portrayal of IAGO!
