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.

Pant was involved in both the runouts! However, it was an off day for the duo as they were taken to the cleaners by Rishabh Pant . Dhawan scored unbeaten 92 runs that included nine fours and 4 sixes while Kane Williamson hit 83 runs off 53 balls.

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.

If they can get Nicklas Backstrom back for Game 3, and that is a big if, then Washington has a legitimate shot at the Cup. I'll give Vegas some credit for making it this far as an expansion team, and so I'll go as far as giving them two wins.

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.
