‘Omerta’ trailer: Rajkummar Rao as Omar Saeed Shaikh is pure evil

SNS | New Delhi |

The Hansal Mehta directed film Omerta, which is based on terrorism, is coming up with more horrifying details. We were not ever over the sinister smile of Rajkummar Rao as Omar Saeed Shaikh in the first trailer. The second trailer of the film is spine-chilling and the film definitely aims to keep you on the edge of your seat.

The makers released the new trailer of Omerta on Twitter on Monday. The nearly three-minute-long trailer begins with Rajkummar Rao saying, “You are conspiring to destroy Islam, but I won’t let that happen.” Then comes the connection between the World Trade Centre attack and Mumbai’s Taj hotel terror strike and other crimes that Omar Saeed committed. It continues with switching clips — Omar Saeed as a British national and a terrorist, showing both sides of his life. The chilling smile on his face appears numerous times in the trailer.

Talking about his character, Rajkummar Rao said, “My first as an anti-hero and exhausting as an actor. To feel the hate towards another human-being without any remorse can take quite a toll. It took me a while to shed this character.”

Presented by Swiss Entertainment and Karma Media, and directed by Hansal Mehta, Omertà will releases on 4 May, 2018.
