In what is Shakespeare's Othello transplanted to the badlands of Uttar Pradesh, Omkara (Ajay Devgan) is a bahubali, a sort of political enforcer for the local politician Tiwari Bhaisaab (Naseeruddin Shah). Ishwar 'Langda' Tyagi (Saif Ali Khan) and Keshav 'Kesu Firangi' Upadhyay (Vivek Oberoi) are his closest lieutenants, while Dolly (Kareena Kapoor) is his ladylove. In this timeless tale of love, betrayal and jealousy, a jealous Langda betrays Omkara and sets off a chain of events that end in savage tragedy. The film has unforgettable performances from the cast and memorable music, including the all-time hit item number 'Beedi jalai le', penned by the one and only Gulzar and set to music by Vishal Bhardwaj. The cult classic now as a book.
