Raazi Movie Synopsis

Hidayat Khan (Rajit Kapoor), a Kashmiri businessman, secretly works for Indian Intelligence but maintains a friendship with Brigadier Syed (Shishir Sharma) by offering military information. Coming from a family of freedom fighters, he believes in ‘nation above all’. On realizing that the lung tumor has cut his span short, he decides that his only daughter Sehmat (Alia Bhatt) must take the baton. Mir Khalid (Jaideep Ahlawat) who heads the Indian Surveillance is initially reluctant to accept the offer and dissuades him before finally relenting to the determined patriot. The story is about how Sehmat, unbeknown to the Pakistani family that loves and dotes on her, collects and relays crucial military information which plays a vital role in India’s victory in the war.

Raazi Movie Review

FBO Critics Review

Dev Meher

When you think of patriotic movies, you think Border, Rang De Basanti or even Baby. Raazi is different from them in being a women spy thriller but the real surprise is: here’s something deeper, sharper, tighter, brighter and perhaps better than anything in the genre in Bollywood.

The film is admirable also because it’s a measured, mostly intelligent thriller that asks us to consider concepts of patriotism and honor without spoon-feeding us with manipulative background music or provocative dialogue. It’s well paced, and set to a thoughtful score by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy that never distracts from the drama. I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five for Raazi; a worthy follow-up to the director’s last film Talvar. Source : Visit site for more

Site: NDTV     Review By- Raja Sen

Besides the intriguing bahu-spy premise, the film presents nothing new to inform the genre: spies have feelings, spies get sappy, spies cry. Even Bond films show us that these days. Gulzar does commendably depict how the other side is just like us - there is a rather clever use of the song Ae Watan, a patriotic track sung with equal fervour from both sides - but is the mere fact that this film does not thump its chest enough for applause?

The plot also moves at a rapid pace and has enough twists to keep you invested in Sehmat and her bid to save India. The scene in which Iqbal’s father (Sharma) defiantly exclaims how a chit of a girl could defeat Pakistan is telling. Had it not been a true story, we could have questioned the audacity of the events. Perhaps, that’s what makes Raazi, one of the finest films of 2018, triumphant and defiantly good. Source : Visit site for more

Raazi is a brave and honest attempt at highlighting the futility of war, that it knows no emotions or feelings or relationships, that it knows no right or wrong, that it is just blind and brutal. The film also makes us question our sense of patriotism especially in these times when, what we eat or what we wear, weirdly reflects the love for our country. It takes a mature, liberal and an emotionally advanced director like Meghna Gulzar to take a heroic story of an unsung hero like Sehmat (played by Alia Bhatt), that starts with a rather dramatic love for her 'vatan' and ends on a human note, screaming and begging for humanity.

Meghna's direction is brilliant in that it manages to fit the long story in little over two hours. Raazi is a well-made film which doesn't shove forceful emotions down our throat but instead lets us soak them at our pace. Alia Bhatt yet again proves she is one of the best female leads we have in Bollywood at the moment. Kudos to Alia for picking up the right films to prove her versatility. She ups the projects by being associated with it and Raazi is definitely one of the best films of 2018 so far. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Times Of India     Review By- Neil

‘Raazi’ defies the spy genre’s traditional expectations of full-blown action sequences. Instead, Meghna Gulzar’s steady hand gradually ramps up the tension throughout, leading to an explosive final act in this strong dramatic thriller. It also leaves you questioning the repercussions of war on the human psyche. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Hindustan Times     Review By- Rohit

Raazi doesn’t try to be very cerebral and that works tremendously in its favour. The tactics of espionage are explained in the simplest manner. Also, the film chronicles a time where a lot depended on the agent’s mental prowess than the technological advancements. That way, actors also get a chance to explore their abilities.

One of the major USPs of #Raazi is its taut screenwriting... Keeps you hooked from Scene A to Z... Vicky Kaushal excels... Rajit Kapoor, Shishir Sharma, Jaideep Ahlawat, Amruta Khanvilkar and Soni Razdan - every actor sparkles in this edge of the seat thriller... MUST WATCH!A meritorious story that deserves to be told... Brilliantly narrated by Meghna Gulzar... @aliaa08, you’re a powerhouse of talent... #Raazi unlocks your true potential as an actor... Take a bow, Team #Raazi. Source : Visit site for more
