The makers of the upcoming film Omerta have dropped a bomb online by releasing the trailer of the movie. Once again, Rajkummar Rao has won all our hearts with his stellar performance. Based on the real-life story of British terrorist of Pakistani descent Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, this Hansal Mehta directorial looks like a spine-chilling exploration of the makings of a terrorist.
The film is slated to release on April 20, 2018
The 1 minute 49 second trailer starts with some random shots of a brooding Rajkummar Rao and a voiceover warning him to hold sway over his emotions. There comes a point in the latter part of the video when someone asks Rajkummar, “Who are you?” and owning the screen, he retorts “I am the saviour.”
Rajkummar bearded spectacled looks, his accent and even the way he is carrying himself around, speak volumes about his craft.
Shot around London and India, Omerta features some of the deadliest terror attacks the world has witnessed in recent history, including the 1994 Delhi Kidnappings, the 9/11 World Trade Centre attack and the 26/11 Mumbai terror strike. Omar Saeed’s brutal beheading of the American journalist Daniel Pearl is also a part of Omerta.
Omerta brings back the formidable actor-director duo of Mehta and Rajkummar, who have worked together in films like Aligarh, CityLights and Shahid.
Produced by Swiss Entertainment in association with Karma Media, the film is slated to hit the theatres on April 20.
