The film was theatrically released in the United States on August 29, 2018 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer through their joint venture with Annapurna (connection with the last puzzle) Picture (now called United Artists).

    Now on to the clues given by the solvers:

    1) "Annapoorna" reference was given by @jskls.
    2) @Rihana's clue style response through private message:
    "Some actors get to act in movies about the world's most beloved, kindest person and most hated, evil persons too."
    3) "...un momentito, señor. It's after all the grand finale! ; )"
    Comment by @Kohvachn. Those are the words by Mossad to Adolf Eichmann at the time of his capture. She also gave the hint that it is "grand finale" a hint about the movie.
    4) "I am stunned at the role of the Church across continents aiding and abetting nefarious operations!"
    Those meetings by the Nazis in Argentina were happening with the blessings of a Church in Argentina.
    5) Comment by @Gauri03: "Knew it the moment I saw Gandhiji and the officer. This answer eludes to the movie acted by Ben Kingsley.
    6) "It could be some kind of surgical strike. A military Operation on celluloid." A hint by @Thyagarajan Sir that leads to the movie.

    Congratulations to the solvers and credit is given to @jskls, @Laks09, @1Sandhya, @Srama, @deepthanoop, @butterflyice, @Kohvachn, @Gauri03, @Thyagarajan Sir.

    I hope I didn't miss anyone. I hope no one is still working on it. Thanks for everyone who sent private messages and for actively participating in this puzzle.

    When the answer is a movie called "Operation Finale", we don't need spoiler tags around this?

    It could be some kind of surgical strike. A military Operation on celluloid.

    You are right. Since he was the last one to solve, no damage was done. In my earlier puzzle he gave the answer in plain sight before most solved it. It is always safe to put answers in a spoiler.
