Critic Reviews for Omertà

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

The film is taut throughout, an expertly staged thriller about a baffling paradox of a real-world man.

Sadly, Omerta ends up being a rather flat narrative, clinical in its depiction of events most people are aware of through news reports.

A decent, focused film.

Rajkummar Rao has elevated the film through his performance.

May 7, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The director has not invested much into how Omar plans his complex actions or what drove him to such abhorrence. So while Mehta gets the mood right, and Rajkummar works wonders with his limited material, Omerta fails to stir you emotionally.

With crisp editing and a runtime of 97 minutes, the film never lets you lose attention and the gripping narrative style ensures you are on the edge throughout.
