Today on the box-office RAAZI got released which is directed by Meghna Gulzar and released under the banner of Dharma Productions. It is adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s novel ‘Calling Sehmat’. Raazi is based on 1971 Indo – Pakistan’s true events. The plot of the film is- Sehmat played by Aliya Bhatt, on the request of her father (played by Rajit Kapoor) marries Iqbal Syed, the son of Pakistan Army’s Major General. From there she had to submit the information and plans against India to the Indian intelligence. She was given training for this. Was Sehmat able to perform her job well or she was caught by the brigadier’s Family ? To know all this you will have to watch the film because I do not tell the story of the movie, I review it.
Let’s see film according to my views. The film’s screenplay is written by Bhavani Iyer and Meghna Gulzar very beautifully. Megan’s direction is good but she was not able to give pace to the film. The film could not be found at the speed desired, though Meghna has been successful in generating suspense and thrill in the film. Meghna has been able to show the time period of 1971 on the screen beautifully.
Talking about the performances- all actors are good, Alia is proving to be a better actress, and is able to play a role of any kind. Vicky Kaushal, Shishir Sharma and Rajit Kapoor also played their respective roles well.
The film’s cinematography is by Jay Patel and he has displayed the scenes very beautifully. Color tone of the film used also shows film of older times. The film is held in such a way so that you could experience the time period of 1971.
Here comes my verdict – Meghna’s direction is undoubtedly good. The performance of all the actors is good, the film has become good too, but despite all of these, the film can not be seen again, and the reason for all this is that the film could not be sharpened enough. There is no motion in the film but it is a one time watch and you will love this movie because there is thrill, emotions and suspense in it. My rating to this movie is of 2.5 out of 5.
