Raazi is a period thriller movie of an Indian spy. Meghna Gulzar has directed this spy thriller. Karan Johar who owns Dharma Productions is releasing the movie. It features Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal in lead roles.
Raazi is a adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s novel Calling Sehmat. Calling Sehmat is a fictionalized account of a true story of an Indian Spy. Sehmat marries a Pakistani Military officer during the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. She supplied information to the Indian intelligence agency which ultimately led to Indian win in the war. Harinder Sikka had met the real woman and drawn inspirations from her experiences. Her statements matched with the Indian agencies records thus corroborating her story. Her information (most critical) helped save INS Viraat which ultimately won the war for India.
Alia Bhatt plays an under cover spy sent to Pakistan disguised as the wife of the Pakistani Military officer Iqbal Syed, played by Vicky Kaushal. Alia Bhatt is not a kid anymore but she is still considered as an upcoming actress. But this role will catapult her to the no.1 position. She can act as exhibited by Highway and Udta Punjab. One thing I like is the variety in her roles, she takes risks with her looks and image(Udta Punjab). Vicky Kaushal is another actor which gets me excited for this movie. He is getting there to the top. His choice of movies (Masaan, Raman Raghav 2.0) is another reason which get me excited about Raazi.
The music is by Shankar Ehsaan and Loy and has couple of songs sung by Arijit singh. Raazi is getting released in India tomorrow on May 11th, 2018.
