Omerta Movie Review: Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao Is Back With Bang
Omerta is directed by Hansal Mehta, while Rajkummar Rao plays the main lead. Can Omerta be as good as their previous three collaborations, Shahid, CityLights and Aligarh!!
journey Starts with UK-born Omar in 1994 when he successfully plans and executes the kidnapping of four foreign nationals, only to get busted by the Delhi police. He is suspected of being an ISI agent and gets sent to Tihar. We are given glimpses of how Bosnian attacks in 1992 drove Sheikh to jihad, his training with ISI militants, and later his ascension to being a terrorist mastermind involved in 9/11 WTC attacks, 2008 Mumbai attack and the kidnapping and murder of American journalist, Daniel Pearl.
Omerta gives more focus to three chapters in Omar’s life – militant camps , kidnapping of the foreign nationals & the murder of Daniel Pearl. You will be disappointed if you expect to know more about his involvement in the WTC attacks or Mumbai attacks. These incidents are done away with a couple of scenes or footage.
