Omkara or Omi is a gifted chieftain who heads a gang of outlaws, which include the crafty Langda Tyagi and the dynamic Kesu amongst his chief cohorts. The story begins when Omi appoints Kesu and not Langda as his chief lieutenant. Langda’s pride is slighted and raging with envy, he hatches a plot to falsely implicate Omi’s beautiful fiancé Dolly in an illicit affair with Omi’s “favorite lieutenant,” Kesu. Using petty insinuations and lies, Langda keeps poisoning Omi’s mind till one day he snaps and goes amok tearing up his secure world, leading to a horrific tragedy.
Based on William Shakespeare’s Othello.
