ZEE5 is leaving no stones unturned to keep the audience entertained. After the massive success of ZEE5 Original film, Chintu Ka Birthday and Nawazuddin Siddique’s Ghoomketu another gripping thriller is lined up for the digital release on ZEE5. Hansal Mehta’s film Omerta starring Rajkummar Rao is all set for the digital premiere on 25 June 2020. The film is based on the real-life incidents of the 1994 Delhi westerners abduction, 9/11 attacks on the US, and the 26/11 Mumbai attacks. It revolves around the British born Pakistani terrorist Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh.
Rajkummar Rao and Hansal Mehta’s last venture together, the film Shahid, was also acclaimed by the critics. The concept and name of the film – Omerta are derived from the Italian word that denotes the ‘Code of silence’. The misinformed terror in the name of Jihad is aptly portrayed in the film. The film also stars Rajesh Tailang, Rupinder Nagra, and Keval Arora as key characters. The film’s story is co-written by the actor Mukul Dev who marks his debut as a writer. The film has premiered at Toronto International Film Festival, the Mumbai Film Festival, Florence Film Festival, Hong Kong International Film Festival and the Busan International Film Festival.
The film is one of the most prized achievements for both the director Hansal Mehta and the actor Rajkummar Rao. The director has said on multiple occasions that,’The film exposes the state-sponsored terrorism and Shahid was way easier to create.” Rajkummar too is said to have researched for a long time to play the onscreen character of Omar Saeed. The film is a sordid tale of terrorism, action, and wars waged in the minds!
