a review and some interesting regional notes

[last post in the Omkara thread]

Manish has a nice take on Gulzar's lyrical explorations in Omkara. It would also be unfair not to mention JR's detailed review (with footnotes). The updated post now also contains a reference to Manish's post. Watch that space. Watch this space. Go watch the film when it hits the theatres.

addendum: Manish posts an addendum about the dialect and ends with a note that all this attempt at being true to the milieu of the film's events is likely to hurt the commercial prospects of the film. Sad times are upon us if an attention to detail is at strict odds with commercial success. The Reign Of The Nose only underscores this concern.

elsewhere hereabouts: the music review
