Meghna Gulzar’s direction and Alia Bhatt’s stunning performance is making the freshly released Raazi trailer a talk of the town
The film’s story is based on Harinder Sikka’s novel Calling Sehmat, and it narrates the story of an Indian woman who marries in Pakistan to work as a spy.
What is so captivating in Raazi Trailer which is making Bollywood celebrities applaud it?
What Does Raazi Trailer Reveal?
Raazi trailer is capturing attention for fabulous performances of the actors. Alia Bhatt who is playing the lead role of Sehmat along with Vicky Kaushal who is playing Pakistani husband has nailed their characters. Alia whose pictures in Hijab from shoots of the Gully Boy made headlines, is all set to make another unique cinematic appearance with Raazi.
The trailer shows a perplexed Alia Bhatt who seems to be trapped between choosing homeland or love. The movie appears to be set in the early 70s. Alia Bhatt plays an Indian spy who marries a Pakistani man to meet her goals assigned to her.
What Is So Interesting About Raazi
There are scores of films in Bollywood that have featured a storyline about the life of spies. But, in most of the cases, these spies are male who go to Pakistan for accomplishing their mission. Or one rare example is Tiger Zinda Hai one of the highest grossing Bollywood films of 2017 that featured Katrina Kaif in the role of ISI agent and Salman Khan in the part of a RAW agent, but the film’s storyline is much different that of Raazi.
Watching Alia Bhatt playing an Indian agent in Pakistan in disguise of Pakistani wife is going to be a unique experience for movie buffs out there.
Apart from the storyline, what makes the film worth watching is Meghna Gulzar’s pick of the cast. Many well-known actors are playing different roles, even if they have very short screen time.
Another thing that Raazi trailer reveals is the brilliant performance of the supporting actors, who have produced the perfect conditions for putting Aliya Bhatt’s situation into an enigma.
What Bollywood Celebrities Are Saying About It
B-Town is in all praises for Alia Bhatt’s performance in Raazi.
Many celebrities took to social media for commenting on Alia’s role of an Indian spy.
Toilet Aik Prem Katha star, Bhumi Pednekar tweeted she was waiting for Raazi trailer, and she loved Alia’s performance.

The same overwhelming response came from the actors like Aditi Rao Hydari, Sophie Choudry, Amit Sadh and many others who applauded the performance of actors and Meghna Gulzar’s direction.
What Is So Ambiguous About Raazi
Based on the famous novel and a story featuring the life of a female spy, Raazi is indeed going to be a catch. But, doubts are looming over Alia Bhatt’s performance. In fact, the character of Sehmat might go against the expectation of specific viewers. For a set group of the audience, a spy shouldn’t look as delicate as Aliya appears in the movie. Further, a person in such a role must not look emotionally chaotic. But, expressions on Aliya’s face don’t seem going well with that role. Well, making such comments before watching the movie doesn’t make much sense. Only the script will reveal what kind of expressions Sehmat’s character should wear.
