- Omerta released last Friday
- Omerta had a relatively slow start at the box office
- But the movie picked up pace on Saturday
"Omerta did poor business in its first weekend of 2.25 crore nett though the growth on Sunday is a little surprising as these types don't really post on Sunday," said Box Office India and added: "It does not really make a difference to the final result of the film. The first weekend business of Omerta is as follows."

Omerta stars Rajkummar Rao as terrorist Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh. In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "Rajkummar Rao gives the film its teeth with a pitch-perfect performance. He slips into the skin of Omar with chilling conviction." Omerta marks Rajkummar Rao and director Hansal Mehta's fourth collaboration after films like Shahid, CityLights and Aligarh.
