Dhum Dhum Dhadam Dhadaiya Re

Yeah, I know……….its been an eternity, and more. Saw Omkara a few days back, first time ever I caught a movie on the day it was released, and have to admit, the friggin flick was worth every damn penny. Firstly, its almost the most un-multiplex muliplex movie you can ever hope to come across. Replete with profanities of the crudest varieties, I can’t exactly visualise family audiences making a beeline to the theatres to witch this one, but man, what a flick, what dialogues, what cinematography, what performances, a brilliant soundtrack, refreshingly different from the usual run-of-mill syrupy sweet Bollywood numbers, and ofcourse, Saif Ali Khan, in probably the best performance he has or is ever likely to deliver. If Othello was less about the eponymous hero, and more about the webs of deceit and subterfuge spun around him by the cunning, wily Iago, its no different over here. Omkara is Langda Tyagi’s magnum opus, period.
