Preview: Rajkummar Rao is turning into the Akshay Kumar of low budget films, Omerta hits the theatres.
This week Rajkummar Rao starrer Omerta released with 102 Not out and both the Hindi films we’re easily out grossed by Avengers Infinity War. Let’s find out why.
Genre – Based on life of Terrorist AHMED OMAR SAEED SHEIKH, a British citizen. His life was in limelight for all the wrong reasons when he had kidnapped wall street journal reporter Daniel Pearl and subsequent cold blooded murders of the American.
DIRECTED BY – Hansal Mehta
CV – His last release Simran was one of his weakest, is it resurrection time and will he deliver? Seems unlikely both commercially and critically.
Written By – Mukul dev (Yes the forgotten actor) and Hansal Mehta
CAST – Rajkummar Rao (He has it seems taking help of numerologists as double ‘M’ in his name is what we have seen, in hope that it might also bring his solo releases with some ‘M’ for money besides the acting fame he has already garnered).
WILL YOU WATCH IT? Hansal Mehta has his audience and hopefully they will come, besides some more additions.
CRITIC’S TAKE – 3 out of 5 on an average. Good direction and Apt performances are the highlights of this otherwise mediocre serious movie.
The trailer of the film has crossed over 2.9 Million views and we hope more than this number the people will flock to the theatres to see the film but for that need the Infinity War fever to go down and give importance to our own Indian films.
Note – Is RAJKUMAR oops RAJKUMMAR becoming the low budget AKSHAY KUMAR in terms of the number of movies come in a year. Five more movies are in the pipeline to release this year with him as a leading man. Why is he doing it? May be because in the end aaram se KHAANA PEENA SONA rukna nahi chahiye.
