Advocate Raghunath Mishra has arranged the marriage of his daughter, Dolly, with Rajan, knowing fully well that Dolly loves Omkara Shukla. Before the marriage could take place, the groom's party is attacked, they flee, and Dolly is reportedly abducted. Raghunath is able to trace Dolly to Omkara, a criminal and hit-man, a verbal confrontation ensues until Politician Bhaisaab telephonically intervenes, and a crestfallen Raghunath faces the reality that Dolly was not abducted but is here with Omkara by her own free will. He warns Omkara, and departs. Shortly thereafter, Bhaisaab is shot at and wounded, announces that Omkara should stand in the next election, and as a result, Omkara appoints one of his lieutenants', Keshav Upadhyay in his place as the 'Bahubali". Omkara realizes that he may have blundered in having Keshav succeed him, as Keshav is unable to control his temper when under the influence of alcohol, which puts him in the bad books of Omkara. Then Omkara suspects that Keshav is having an affair with Dolly, as both had been fellow-collegians. With Omkara's marriage with Dolly getting close, he asks his other lieutenant, Ishwar Tyagi, to obtain proof of Keshav's affair with Dolly or face the consequences, as Omkara remembers Raghunath's warning that when a daughter is not true to her father, she will never be true to anyone. Watch what happens when Ishwar produces proof shortly after the marriage, and the impact this has on Dolly, Omkara, Keshav, Ishwar, and Ishwar's wife, Indu.

Goofs:
Factual Mistake
The Enfield rifle that Langda Tiyagi (Saif) is shown shooting so accurately does not have a rear sight. The lack of it is plainly visible through the movie but even more so in the scene when he shoots the tires off the marriage bus.

Continuity
In the song "Naina" when we first see Omkara he is wounded on the right side of his chest but in the next scene where Dolly is lying next to the sleeping Omkara the wound has moved to the left side. The scene after that shows Omkara walking with Dolly with his right arm in a sling implying that it is, again, his right side that has been injured.

Continuity
In a scene when Raju comes to meet Omkara to apologize, Langda Tyagi is holding a steel glass in his right hand and in a next shot he is holding it in his left hand.

Continuity
When Advocate Raghunath Mishra and his men confronts Omkara's men at Tyagi's hostel, everyone's position changes between shots.

Continuity
During the first scene of dressing up the bridegroom for marriage, Omkara is wearing a garland made from 1000 rupee notes. However, during the marriage, he is wearing a 500 rupee notes garland.
Trivia:
In the shot in which Saif Ali Khan is in the shadows, looking at a mirror, director Vishal Bhardwaj suggested that it would be very artistic and beautiful if Khan did it naked. The actor answered, "I am prepared to do that as long as you direct me naked." That was the end of the topic.

The title of the film, "Omkara", was decided by a contest that was open to the public. Three names were shortlisted for the title and the general public voted in by SMS to choose their favorite. The selected names included "Omkara", "O Saathi Re" and "Issak" (the western UP pronunciation of the word "Ishq"). The public voted overwhelmingly in favor of "Omkara". However, all three of the possible titles are songs on the soundtrack ("Issak" being another name for the song "Namak").
