Omerta movie review – A Good Combination of drama and storytelling.
Critics Rating: 3.5/5
Our overall critic’s rating is not an average of the sub scores below.
Omerta is not a complete documentary; it is a good project with a great combination of Hansal Mehta and Rajkumar Rao.
The Direction Of The film Is very Good. The combination of Hansal Mehta with Rajkumar Rao has given us hits in the past. Omerta is also not an exception. Omar is portrayed to be a criminal made of ice. The colder he gets, the more dangerous his calculations become.
It is needless to say that Rajkumar Rao is a gem of an actor.
It is difficult to compose music for a film like Omerta, Yet, Ishaan Chhabra does quite a good job in rekindling the moments.
The script of the Omerta movie doesn’t have popular dialogues or monologues. But the script doesn’t fail to celebrate its own charisma. The real color of the characters reflects through the dialogues.
Anuj Rakesh Dhawan served as the perfect DOP for Omerta. His work of cinematography gave the film a Perfect angle despite the serious subject of the film. Editing by Aditya Warrior is also worthy of appreciation
Watch Or Not??
Omerta is a must-watch movie due to great Direction, visual effects, the cinematography of the film.
