Director Hansal Mehta has carved a niche for himself thanks to his quest for meaningful cinema. The director, best known for ‘Shahid’ (2013), ‘Citylights’ (2014), ‘Aligarh’ (2016), ‘Ometra’ (2018) and the critically acclaimed show ‘Scam 1992’ (2020), is currently enjoying the accolades coming in for his latest release ‘Faraaz’ (2023). Although the film failed to find audiences in theatres, it gained immense praise from the viewers after its digital release.

Hansal’s film ‘Omerta’ (2018), which was a biographical crime drama, completed its five years of release today and the director took to his Twitter account and called the film special. He wrote a post which said, “This film will always be special to me. For the exceptional @RajkummarRao, for #AnujDhawan, for @mandarjkulkarni and for #AdityaWarrior all of who crafted this piece with such care. I lost a lot of money in this thanks to an unscrupulous producing partner but ultimately no regrets. The film is available to stream on @ZEE5Premium. Try it!”

Writer-director Manish Gupta, commented on this post, “I loved this film, saw in the theatre, I especially loved the cinematography & sound design. The beheading scene due to its realistic sound effects still gives me nightmares. It’s etched permanently in my memory”.
