Raazi is a spy-thriller movie and tells the story of an undercover Indian spy in Pakistan. Interestingly, the movie is based on a true story which takes the entire gravity of the story a notch higher. It is based on a true story of a young girl, who was sent to Pakistan in 1971, to source out any information she could, as a war was becoming imminent between India and Pakistan. It is the journey of an ordinary Indian girl, in extraordinary circumstances, as explained by the makers of the movie.
The film is adapted from Harinder Sikka’s book – Calling Sehmat. Apart from Alia Bhatt, Raazi also has Vicky Kaushal, Rajit Kapoor, Soni Razdan and Shishir Sharma in pivotal roles. The movie is directed by Meghna Gulzar who previously stunned the audience with her movie Talvar, based on the Arushi murder case.
Let’s hope the movie is as good as the celebs are saying and we get to see Alia in another strong and intense role, after all, she’s the queen on these roles and has mastered her art form with movies like Highway and Udta Punjab.
