Rajkummar Rao

New Delhi : Few hours ago Rajkummar Rao's upcoming film Omerta's trailer was dropped on internet & it is a big hit now. With some random shots of a brooding Rao and a voiceover warning him to hold sway over his emotions, the trailer is opens. We then witness Rajkummar in action, making discrete phone calls, working to make himself physically fit and disguising himself under the name of Rohit Verma in front of the police.

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.”

Here's the trailer.

Rajkummar Rao once again has managed to bowl us over with his stellar act. The film is 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.

On trailer launch of Omerta, Rajkummar Rao said, "Omerta is among the most researched films that I have worked on till date. We actually visited some of the places frequented by Omar in London during his transformation from an LSE graduation student to becoming this deadly terrorist. I needed to feel and touch this man’s past – to ingest him. It was not an easy journey for me to take. With Omerta and Hansal Sir, we have a combination that will probably leave you stunned. There will be this moment of shock and silence as the end credits roll".

Omerta's director Hansal Mehta also said, "Omerta takes a look at this complex paradox of a man called Omar Saeed Sheikh. It was a difficult subject to choose and a challenge to make. However, with an actor like Rajkummar, no challenge seems insurmountable and this was the ideal film to hurtle us out of our comfort zone to make something that is uncomfortable. But that is the burden of truth – it is uncomfortable and it must be faced. The film looks at what it means to be a fundamentalist and for someone to pick up a gun with the intent of killing in return for an afterlife in Paradise. I want to leave the viewer with a sense of awe, disgust, hate, surprise and let them examine the ramifications of these events on their lives today". On 20th April, the flm will hit the screens.

We wish all the best to Omerta's cast & crew.
