Alia Bhatt and Meghna Gulzar, working on a project surely needs your special attention. This duo is all set to present to us, Raazi, based on Harkinder Sikka’s novel, Calling Sehmat. After proving her mettle in movies like Highway and Udta Punjab, Alia is all set to play a very crucial role of a daughter, spy and wife.
With a strong support cast with Soni Razdan, Vicky Kaushal and Rajit Kapur, Raazi is also based on true events and facts about a Kashmiri spy who puts her life at risk to serve India during the Indo-Pak war of 1971.
So we’re here to convince you why you should watch this movie!
Fabulous star cast
We’ve missed Alia in 2018, so that is one of the major reasons of watching the film but the movie is also supported by some of the most talented gems of Bollywood including Soni Razdan and Rajit Kapur as her parents and Vicky Kaushal as Sehmat’s husband and a dedicated Pakistani officer. While Shishir Sharma will portray the role of Vicky’s father, Jaideep Ahlawat will be seen as Alia’s trainers.
The very fact that this movie is based on a true story makes it irresistible to watch! How can you miss the story about Sehmat, the young Kashmiri girl, who helped India to discover Pakistan’s evil plans of sinking the INS Vikrant.
Meghan Gulzar’s last outing to the box-office; Talvaar speaks quite well about her. She gave the audience a crispy and gripping narrative, which also showed how well she can work around true events. So there are no doubts that Raazi won’t be one of the greatest films of 2018. Talking about Meghna, Alia said, “In my honest opinion, her attention to every detail is very specific, and she takes it very seriously. And, because of that the world she creates, feels very real.”
Raazi is an upcoming thriller-crime film with a heart wrenching plot. Set during the Indo-Pak war of 1971, the movie revolves around the film of an innocent Kashmiri girl, Sehmat who is married off to gather classified information in Pakistan as an undercover, on her father’s order. We will witness Alia portraying three roles- daughter, wife and a spy.
A great story is nothing without some good music. From the background music to the main ones, they should aptly fit the plot of the movie and this is what you can expect in Raazi. With some of the best music maestros of the industry like Gulzar and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, songs like Ae Watan, Agar Dil Raazi Hai and Dilbaro have already created quite buzz!
