Cast: Rajkummar Rao, Rajesh Tailang, Blake Allan, Keval Arora
Director: Hansal Mehta
Written by: Mukul Dev, Hansal Mehta
Release date: May 4, 2018
Omerta movie plot:
The Hansal Mehta directorial has managed to educate the viewers about the infamous British-born terrorist Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, who kidnapped and murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in 2002. But unfortunately some moviegoers couldn't connect with Mehta's story-telling, which apparently failed to give enough insight into the life of the terrorist.
Many people also found a bit of shade of Shahid (Mehta's previously directorial) in Omerta. Rajkummar Rao, as always, has managed to impress the audience with his brilliant portrayal and seems to have done justice to the character. This is the first time Rajkummar Rao is seen playing a negative character on the silver screen.
Omerta movie morning shows and occupancy:
The early morning shows witnessed tremendously low occupancy around only 2 percent with merely 1-2 shows in theatres in many parts of the country. It was made with a budget of less than Rs 10 crores. The reason for having less footfalls is also pretty understandable as it targets only a small section of audience and may not attract the larger sections in cinema halls.

Those who have already watched Omerta in the morning shows shared their reaction on Twitter. While some people have been praising Rajkummar Rao's acting skills and Hansal Mehta's intense story-telling, others were left disappointed as they thought that the screenplay didn't support the film's vision.

Its on a Rare Occasion that @RajkummarRao disappoints with his film. And yes i am disappointed with #Omerta I have to admit the film had a vision of a classic but screenplay did not support it.

#QuickReview Terrorists are made of these cliches. #Omerta tries very hard to connect, explain, even shock you, but Pablo Escobar in Narcos was better created. — manishalakhe (@manishalakhe) May 4, 2018
#Omerta @RajkummarRao @mehtahansal Just watched the paid preview show, n m just awestruck! I don't think the portrayal of Omar Shaikh could b more natural, i felt i was witnessing the real moments. U have just not only NAILED but LIVED him. I still have that last smile fresh

#Omerta is a movie that'll capture all you for the moment. The story telling by @mehtahansal is too impactful.
What @RajkummarRao has done in the movie is beyond explanation, no words for that. Watching his devil smile will show you that he was completely immersed in his role.

Watched #Omerta last night and was blown away by @RajkummarRao 's meticulous performance. There is madness in his method, shocking precision in his potrayal that takes you spiralling into #Omar 's dark&disturbing world. @mehtahansal gives us a cinematic gem and is a must watch. pic.twitter.com/PEBQaLVIZq — Rudrani Chattoraj (@rudrani_rudz) May 3, 2018
#Omertà is... disappointing. And that's simply because the Censor board must've cut shit out of the film. Wasn't as hard hitting & eye opening as I expected. Although what I took home was a cold, stunning @RajkummarRao who's the soul of this film. (1/2)

Give it up for @RajkummarRao for giving the bravest performance of his life as Omar Sheikh in an absolutely inchorent and messy film by @mehtahansal Such a brave act deserved a much much better film.#Omertà — Chiranjeevi Bajpai (@ThandaaAngaara) May 3, 2018
