Raazi: Alia-starrer flick you can not afford to flick off

13 May 2018

Director Meghna Gulzar's "Raazi" based on Harinder S. Sikka's novel, "Calling Sehmat" is not a conventional espionage thriller, but it does depend upon surprises, thrilling moments and unexpected revelation of characters and they grow naturally out of the story.

Sleeping with the enemy is a fantasy which has titillated the viewers since ages. We can safely say that Alia Bhatt's performance is as close to real as it can get-right from her being trained to be a spy to her really executing it, barring a few occasions when her dialect seems out of the place. It looks like the film has managed to perform equally well on its release. The content is based on a true story, which makes it all the more interesting and exciting. For Gulzar, this is the second film that she's adapted from true events into a screenplay, which is a different ballgame altogether, "You need to restrict the creative liberties to a bare minimum when you are telling a true-life story". Director Meghna Gulzar, who has a knack of telling real life stories in an unconventional way, Raazi truly emerges as a sure shot victor.

AT&T CEO calls hiring of Michael Cohen a "big mistake"
Cohen played an important role in that campaign but has denied vigorously that there was any conspiracy with Russians. The company has become the central subject of an investigation led by the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office.

All the actors have done their roles perfectly. Her character goes through a transformation from a rather submissive girl at Delhi University to undergoing self-defence training to learning the Morse Code and getting ready as a spy. Her act in Raazi is more of less at par with Udta Punjab which is considered to be her career's best.

The first half deals with the transformation of Alia from a cute girl into a ruthless spy. With not a single boring moment despite of slow pace in the first half, Raazi won't bore you even for a single second. Alia's lower lip curling into a silent scream is as effective a cinematic image as Deepika Padukone smiling through her tears.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Lite to be launched in China on May 21
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was introduced with an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC out of the box. However, there were rumors that the company may use the Super AMOLED in Galaxy Note 9 with the Mobile HDR integration.

The movie is set in a timeline of 1970's, trying times when India was led by Indira Gandhi and beset with problems of gargantuan proportions. Her father, Hidayat Khan (Rajit Kapoor), a Kashmiri Indian intelligence agent assigns her to a risky mission. Alia is seen playing the role of a spy while Vicky is seen playing a Pakistani army official. A range of emotions are covered through Abdul's reactions to certain situations.

Watch the movie with your Kindred Spirits to revive the hidden love for the motherland in your heart. The movie itself is of an extremely controversial nature, which is why none of the production companies in Pakistan agreed to air it in the country. Unlike other "spy" films, Razzi refrains from being loud or jingoistic.
