Max to air Omkara on 30 June

MUMBAI: Set Max will feature Vishaal Bharadwaj’s Omkara on 30 June 2007 at 8 pm.

The film stars Ajay Devgan, Saif Ali Khan, Konkona Sen Sharma, Vivek Oberoi and Bipasha Basu.

Omi (Ajay Devgan) is initially the ‘General’ or enforcer of a political party, leading a group which includes the crafty Langda Tyagi ( Saif Ali Khan) and the dynamic Kesu ( Vivek Oberoi) amongst his chief cohorts. The story begins when Omi appoints Kesu and not Langda as his successor once he enters politics himself. Langda’s pride is slighted and raging with envy, he hatches a plot to falsely implicate Omi’s beautiful lover Dolly Mishra (Kareena Kapoor), in a love affair with Omi’s “favorite lieutenant”, Kesu.

With the unwitting aid of Indu (Konkona Sen), Langda’s wife, and the willing help of Raju, a fellow grouch, Langda’s plan takes shape and results in horrific tragedy. Using petty insinuations and lies, Langda keeps poisoning Omi’s mind till one day it snaps and Omi goes about tearing up his own safe and secure world. By the time he realises what he has done and the backlash of his actions, it is too late.
