Omkara is Vishal Bhardwaj's "Wild West" version of Willaim Shakespeare's 17th century classic "Othello", where the action is set against the milieu of political warfare in the interiors of Uttar Pradesh. Omkara (Ajay Devgan) is a gifted chieftain who heads a gang of outlaws, including the crafty Langda Tyagi (Saif Ali Khan) and the dynamic Kesu (Vivek Oberoi) amongst his chief cohorts. Langda's pride is slighted when Omi appoints Kesu and not Langda as his chief lieutenant. Raging with envy, he hatches a plot to falsely implicate Omi's beautiful fiance Dolly (Kareena Kapoor), in an illicit affair with Omi's "favourite lieutenant", Kesu. Using petty insinuations and lies, Langda keeps poisoning Omi's mind till one day he snaps and goes amok tearing his secure world, leading up to a horrific tragedy....'Omkara' is a classic theme of love, deception, jealousy and passion.
