Omerta is a brave attempt which doesn't sugarcoat the bitter pill. However, its effectiveness is lessened by the tedious tone of the narrative. The plain vanilla treatment to the subject might not appeal to some. The film is worth a dekko purely for Rajkummar Rao's mind-blowing transformation into a sinister figure.
As the film does not delve much into the particular subject’s personal life, it becomes more of a larger comment on communal hatred and the futility of religion when it is used to propagate violence and evil purposes.
'Omerta' is not an easy film to watch. It cuts the protagonist's movements down to size in episodic chunks and then regurgitates the vivid moments into scenes of colour-blinded documentation.
