In Circulation

In what is Shakespeare's Othello transplanted to the badlands of Uttar Pradesh, Omkara (Ajay Devan) is a Bahubali, a sort of political enforcer for the local politician Tiwari Bhai Saab ( Nasiruddin Shah). Ishwar 'Langdale' Tyagi (Saiph Ali Khan) and Keshav 'Kiso Firangi' Upadhyay (Vivek Oberoi) are his closest lieutenants, while Dolly (Karena Kapoor) is his ladylove.

In this timeless tale of love, betrayal and jealousy, a jealous Langdale 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 jalap le', penned by the one and only Gulzar and set to music by Vishal Bhardwaj. The cult classic now as a book.
