Nothing is perfect.Even Bollywood is not perfect. And when Bollywood deviates from its usual 'love-sing-dance' formula, some masterpieces like 'Omkara' are born. Adapted very flawlessly from Shakepeare's 'Othello', 'Omkara' creates such an impact on your mind that the taste of movie lingers on your mind for long.The human beings, their relations, the devils deep within them- all these shades of Shakespearian drama are very beautifully explored in the powerful movie directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. Punched-packed performances from Ajay Devgan, Kareena, Konkona and Saif(yes, the same man who danced once on silly tunes like 'Ole Ole...') take the movie to new heights of moviemaking.
