Rajkummar Rao is has made is name for himself for shouldering challenging roles and Omerta is right up on the list as one of the gripping thrillers we have seen him in. The Hansal Mehta directorial has already made a name for itself at 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and is now all set for a theatrical release. The trailer of the film released today and we are nearly out of words to express what a great trailer it is.
The film is set on the life of Omar Saeed Sheikh (played by Rajkummar Rao) who is one of the major culprits in international terrorist outing including the for the murder of Daniel Pearl who was a journalist at the Wall Street Journal in 2002, the Mumbai Terror Attacks, the 9/11 incident in the U.S. and the infamous 1994 kidnapping of westerners in India.
Omerta, the title of Mehta’s film stands for a code of silence where one withholds information on a criminal act or refuses to divulge anything to the police.
The trailer discovers Omar’s journey from his days in London where he joined jihad training and how he became of one the most wanted terrorists of all times.
Rajkummar Rao’s performance promises perfection and nothing less and we are thrilled by his intensity and his selection of bold film to kick start 2018.
