Toronto Film Review: ‘Omertà’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Omertà’
Hansal Mehta’s latest feature dramatizes the life of Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, a notorious real-life terrorist long behind bars — which hasn’t stopped him from being involved in various attacks, purportedly including 9/11. The compelling “Omertà,” whose title is an Italian term for a criminal code of honor that encompasses absolute non-cooperation with legal authorities, cobbles together speculation with what is known about the many-alias’d Saeed, a 43-year-old British national of Pakistani heritage who has been at the forefront of fundamentalist Islamic terror for nearly a quarter-century.

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.

Scrambling chronology, Mehta and co-scenarist Mukul Dev lead off with an incident sure to grab Western viewers’ attention: In

Rajkummar Rao To Play Terrorist Omar Sheikh In Hansal Mehta’s ‘Omerta’

Actor Rajkummar Rao, who has proved his versatility with diverse roles in films like Shahid, Queen, Love Sex Our Dhokha (LSD), Aligarh and Trapped, which was screened at Mami, comes across as a meek and mild-mannered person, which is why this piece of news will make you sit up and take notice.

Rao, who had teamed up with Hansal Mehta for Shahid, Citylights and Aligarh, will play a radicalised Britisher of Pakistani origin Omar Sheikh (infamous for killing Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl) in Mehta’s upcoming film Omerta.

In an interview to a leading daily, Mehta said, “This film is based on the said international fugitive, who was involved in Pearl’s murder, and it covers a host of terrorist activities (including 26/11) seen through the eyes of this person, who was at the centre of it all. After watching ‘A Mighty Heart’ (2007), I wanted to know more about

When asked, Anurag informed that when he was invited by Zeishan to see the first cut of the film, he “kind of made an excuse because he was scared that he might not like it”.

“Then Vasan Bala (director of 2012 film, Peddlers) called me up, and said that he was blown by it. I saw it, and was not just surprised, but completely taken in. Vasan and I then sat with him, and gave him feedback. The film is funny, edgy, and contemporary,” added Anurag.

'Jal' an aqueous epic of Shakespearean proportions (Ians Movie Review - Rating: ****)

Film: "Jal"; Cast: Purab Kohli, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Kirti Kulhari, Mukul Dev; Director: Girish Malik; Rating: ****

It's a never-before experience. Tapestried and tempestuous, the tides of Girish Malik's narrative rise and swell like the frequent sandstorms in the desertscape that Sunita Radia's camera captures so evocatively in this saga of raging ragas.

There is more than just a little bit of Shakespeare in Girish Malik's directorial debut. "Jal" leaves you with many fluttering strands of thought swimming in the tormented tides of humanity's most deprived and financially challenged part of civilization where drinking water is more precious than gold.

Malik's richly layered narrative sweeps across the Rann Of.

Coming up next Friday, is Jai Ho starring Salman Khan and fans cannot wait to see this film on the big screen! The music videos have also been a huge hit with fans, especially ‘Photocopy’ and we have some cool scoop to reveal! Little does anyone know but the song was tweaked at the nth hour.

Earlier, the song had the brand name Xerox embedded in a line instead of the word photocopy, but that had to be changed. Here’s the story….

Sources share that the makers strongly wanted to use Xerox as the word has more of a recall value. However, the lengthy process to get permission since it is a brand name kept them at bay. The makers asked for permission from the Xerox to use the word in the song, but it was a long process to get the required permissions and formalities in place. That
