Abstract The project presents a cinematic overview of a popularly known play by William Shakespeare, Othello. A conceptualized analysis of text and context, of theatre and cinema, of William Shakespeare’s Othello and Vishal Bharadwaj’s Omkara. Othello itself is a pioneer of the tragedies written by William Shakespeare and the Indian context of Othello is as appealing as the text itself. It is a tragically moulded plot around a moor, a moor of Venice as the title suggests. Omkara more or less is the cultural translation of cinematic emotions by Vishal Bharadwaj through big screen. Through this project the we see how Omkara alludes to the history of Indian and non-Indian film and much like the way Shakespeare’s drama does with an array of other texts. More specifically, the essay articulates Bharadwaj’s linking of tragic love with violence in the world‘s most populous democracy without hampering the gist and universality of Shakespeare’s work.
