#Omerta the story of an Antagonist. Trailer will be out in 2 days. Easily the toughest character I’ve played till date. pic.twitter.com/pa9S5qhhYD — Rajkummar Rao (@RajkummarRao) March 12, 2018
Omertà had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and was met with widespread critical acclaim. A review in Variety said, "At the end of this slickly mounted film, there’s no lack of questions still dangling nor hoped-for insights that fail to arrive. Nonetheless, while you’re watching it, Mehta’s freely imagined biopic provides a fascinating Rorschach of a figure who is, unfortunately, truly a man for our times."
The trailer for the movie will be out on 14 March, and the movie will be released on 20 April.
