Shakespeare’s plays were originally intended for theaters, but some contemporary directors have incorporated them into their works. The focus of the study is on Vishal Bhardwaj’s 2006 film Omkara, which is regarded as one of the best adaptations in Indian cinema history and is an adaptation of the Shakespeare play Othello. This article attempts to comprehend how Bhardwaj adapted Elizabethan-era plays and placed them in a very different context. Through it, the paper seeks to examine the similarities and differences between the films and their original sources of inspiration while highlighting the timeless qualities of Shakespeare’s works that make them culturally and historically relevant.
