There is no shortage of movies based on India’s battles with its neighboring nation. Raazi, directed by Meghna Gulzar s very different from what is considered just to be a spy movie. Last February Dharma co-produce the first movie set inside a submarine – The Ghazi Attack – and now, we have another movie set around the same incident but with a brand new perspective. Director Meghna Gulzar is not a novice when it comes to handling sensitive topics, as we have seen in Talvar. 

Sehmat (Alia Bhatt) a college student whose father Hidayat (Rajit Kapoor), a Kashmiri double agent with the Indian intelligence, gets her hitched to a Pakistani General’s son, Iqbal Syed (Vicky Kaushal). The alliance is only an elaborate ruse to gain access to confidential files and executive decisions that could expose the nation’s volatile plans. Reluctant at the beginning, Sehmat accepts the challenge and immediately begins her job of collecting and passing information to Khalid Mir (Jaideep Ahlawat), head of the Indian Secret Service and his team. 

Alia Bhatt once again proves her acting prowess in a movie that shows her dedication towards the craft. Even Vicky Kaushal is very impressive and the efforts of the supporting cast do not go unnoticed. Each one plays their role to perfection. The most important and impressive factor about this movie is how the story is unbiased where the neighboring nation is not portrayed as the ultimate bad guys. The movie depicts a different, yet a more realistic side to spy business. It makes a great watch for the weekend go for it.
