Omerta starring prolific Rajkumar Rao has been waiting in the wings for a life time to get a release since it’s premiere in Toronto International Film Festival in 2017 and also in 19th Jio Mami. The wonderful team of director Hansal Mehta and Rajkumar Rao is back once again to showcases the story of a real life terrorist called Omar Sheikh and how how went into this world from being an educated man. Omerta has earned rave reviews from the critics around the globe for it’s brilliant story telling and extraordinary performance.
Rajkumar got the first important breakthrough of his career when he played the lead role in the biopic of a lawyer called Shahid with the same title as film directed by Hansal Mehta. Omerta is their fifth collaboration together as they both suited each other’s genre of cinema very well. After Shahid they worked together in a film called Citylights which was very well received by anyone who saw it and wen onto a great status to Raj as a performer in the Hindi film industry because the role was completely different from Shahid.
Post Citylights both of them made a wonderful film together called Aligarh, which actually starred Manoj Bajpayee in the lead role but Raj had the second most important part in the film. Aligarh became one of the finest film of 2016 garnering everyone related to it some truly exceptional compliments. Raj not only became a great actor but also a bankable star and the exact same thing happened with much older director Hansal Mehta as they both grew together in the name of credibility and scope of films they could afford to do. Omerta can be yet another classic for both of them in an already great string of films they have been doing for past 5 years. Omerta will release on 20 April 2018.
