Lincoln Centre NYC is presenting a film festival this summer 2009 called "Series: The Bard Goes Global: Shakespeare on the International Screen" which will showcase movies from around the world inspired by Shakespeare. Here is the official entry for the festival from India - Maqbool

About the movie:
Composer-cum-filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj’s Maqbool is an engaging update of Macbeth set in contemporary Mumbai. Maqbool (the excellent Irrfan Khan, Slumdog Millionaire) is a leading henchman for crime boss Abbaji (an award-winning performance by Pankaj Kapoor), until two corrupt cops predict he will soon take over Abbaji’s criminal empire with the help of his boss’s mistress, Nimmi. Bhardwaj, who co-wrote the screenplay with Abbas Tyrewala, works outside of Bollywood convention, avoiding numerous subplots to focus on Maqbool’s relentless rise to power and his inevitable collapse.
