The theatrical trailer of the famous director Hansal Mehta’s much awaited and anticipated movie Omerta which is said to be a crime drama which features his favorite poster boy Rajkummar Rao.
Unlike Shahid, Rajkummar will not see in the movie Omerta as fighting for justice in the court which he did in his critically acclaimed movie Shahid.
He is out there in an undisclosed foreign land and plotting something against the world. Rajkummar Rao, one of the finest actor will be seen in the movie Omerta, playing the role of a terrorist.
Rajkummar essayed Omar Saeed Sheikh, a trusted member of an Islamist terror group who is now on a mission. The trailer is a journey in flashes, which actually reflected the life of terrorist in the terror groups.
Omerta was the closing movie of the 19th Jio MAMI Mumbai International Film Festival which took place in the last year of 2017.
Bankrolled by the movie is done by Nadir Shah’s Swiss Entertainment which is all set to hit theatres on this 20 April, along with Nanu Ki Janu.
“Omerta is among the most researched films that I have worked on till date. We actually visited some of the places frequented by Omar in London during his transformation from an LSE graduation student to becoming this deadly terrorist. I needed to feel and touch this man’s past – to ingest him. It was not an easy journey for me to take. With Omerta and Hansal Sir, we have a combination that will probably leave you stunned. There will be this moment of shock and silence as the end credits roll,” said the leading man Rajkummar Rao at the Omerta trailer launch.
The Director Hansal Mehta said, “Omerta takes a look at this complex paradox of a man called Omar Saeed Sheikh. It was a difficult subject to choose and a challenge to make. However, with an actor like Rajkummar, no challenge seems insurmountable and this was the ideal film to hurtle us out of our comfort zone to make something that is uncomfortable. But that is the burden of truth – it is uncomfortable and it must be faced. The film looks at what it means to be a fundamentalist and for someone to pick up a gun with the intent of killing in return for an afterlife in Paradise. I want to leave the viewer with a sense of awe, disgust, hate, surprise and let them examine the ramifications of these events on their lives today.”
Omerta has already won several accolades and the movie was also featured at the Toronto International Film Festival. The movie Omerta have been also screened at the Jio MAMI Film Festival, so it will be really yet to see now when the movie will be hit theatres in India.
Omerta brings back the formidable actor-director duo of Mehta and Rajkummar, who have worked together in some of the heavily praised critically acclaimed movie, which includes Aligarh, CityLights, and Shahid.
