Rajkummar Rao’s Omerta is dark, edgy and a brutally true story. Have a look at the trailer.
Omerta is a true story of a terrorist, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh and it will unfold in theatres on 20th April 2018.
After making a lot buzz in the last few months, the much-awaited trailer of Rajkummar Rao’s Omerta is finally out. Directed by Hansal Mehta, Omerta is a story of British-Pakistani terrorist, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, an infamous man who almost brought India and Pakistan to the brink of a war. He brutally beheaded American journalist Daniel Pearl, too.
Omerta has been shot in real locations across London and India, and the story revolves around some of the deadliest terror attacks in recent history, including the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, the 26/11 Mumbai terror strike and the brutal beheading of Pearl.
The trailer looks intense, gripping and shows a brutal true story. Have a look.
Hansal Mehta says that the edge-of-the-seat drama, whose trailer launched a few minutes ago, throws light on the diabolical designs of Pakistan-sponsored terror. He explains, “This film is an exposé of state-sponsored terror, in this case, perpetrated by Pakistan. They have been harboring terror for far too long and far too liberally.”
Talking about his character, Rajkummar says, “Omar Sheikh is an example of how educated youth get drawn towards extremist ideologies and the wrong interpretation of jihad. Their destructive actions cause long-lasting ripples in society.”
Presented by Swiss Entertainment and Karma Media and produced by Nahid Khan, Omerta releases on April 20.
