Rajkummar Rao’s film Omerta was creating a lot of buzz even before it’s release. Although the crime thriller overwhelmed the critics, the audience seems a bit unimpressed yet. Released on Friday, Omerta earned Rs 54 lakh on the opening day.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed the Box Office collections of Omerta. He took to Twitter and wrote, “#Omertà has a lukewarm start… Fri ₹ 54 lakhs. India biz… Needs miraculous growth over the weekend to sustain.”

Actor Rajkummar Rao, essaying the role of Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, had run chills down our spine in the trailer. Omerta is based on of the deadliest terror attacks in history, such as the 1994 Delhi kidnappings, the 9/11 World Trade Center attack and the 26/11 Mumbai terror strike. The trailer ends with the ruthless beheading of American journalist Daniel Pearl.
Helmed by director Hansal Mehta and presented by Swiss Entertainment and Karma Media, Omertà released on 4 May 2018.
