Raazi – All about the ‘Spy’

Not the kind of movie, I would generally go and watch… but the reviews were just too good to ignore. I needed to see for myself, and of course there was Alia Bhatt 😍 I knew for one, she wouldn’t be romancing anyone in this movie, but would be playing a more serious kind of role. I don’t think I could spot her dimple even once.. but that’s not what I went to watch the movie for, so it was okay even if I missed out on it.

The movie really surprised me, Alia didn’t – I’ve always been a fan of her acting. The movie overall was really well done. I enjoyed watching it considering the movie revolved around my country, India. Sometimes, the patriotic side of a citizen does need to come out, even if it is for a few hours in a theater 😜

I had no idea about this story at all.. well it happened in 1971, I wasn’t born then, I don’t think I was even thought of way back then 😉 (I was born 12 years later) so I thought , why not watch the movie, I’d get to know something about India and in the process get to watch one of my favorite actresses Alia Bhatt enact the main lead in the film (as Sehmat)

If you’ve already watched the movie, how good was the song ‘Ae Watan’? My word! It’s a patriotic song for starts and the fact that that the song is operating at 2 different levels, she’s (Sehmat) taught the song to the children and their singing it for their country while she is singing it for hers.. the emotion there! ..is to be felt

A film worth watching 👍 and Alia, be it in the role of Ananya (2 states) Kaira (Dear Zindagi) Veera (Highway) or Sehmat (Raazi) she is a born actress. She blends into character perfectly 👍

Wow! is all I can say about the movie. Besides how long was I going to watch the same old sappy romantic Bollywood films? I need variety in the kind of movies I watch too… but that said, if tomorrow there’s an Alia all out and out romance film, I’m still going to watch it.
