Ali Bhatt in Meghna Gulzar's'Raazi

Ali Bhatt in Meghna Gulzar's'Raazi

She is present in nearly every scene post her character's introduction and she shines throughout even when the film stutters near the end. Being a Meghna Gulzar film, there are a lot of expectations from Raazi.

After a couple of initial scenes between Hidayat Khan (Rajit Kapur) and Khalid Mir (Jaideep Ahlawat), in which they document the generalised sentiments in India during that period, the focus shifts to Alia Bhatt, and she soon takes the charge. Sure, Iqbal's family - an Army family - talk about dushmans across the borders and crushing India on the dinner table - but they are also incredibly warm people who embrace and make Indian-born Sehmat feel at home. The movie is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehmat which is said to be inspired by real events. "She was a Kashmiri Muslim".

If you like well-crafted but relaxed thrillers, this film is your cup of tea. She also has to explore a newfound sense of freedom, conquer her inner demons (of having being molested as a child) and finally deal with love for a man who is her polar opposite (there's also the Stockholm syndrome angle). "Main hi to mulk hoon", she says to her Intelligence Bureau handler when he asks why she is willing to risk her life for an abstract cause.

Sehmat marries Iqbal and hereon starts her journey which changes her life like never before. On her part, Alia disclosed how, despite moving out of the house, Soni checks on her regularly. Director Meghna Gulzar has been instrumental in bringing out the stirring emotions that characters share in the movie. Sehmat is constantly identified as Indian, rather than Kashmiri, eliding over her cultural identity in an attempt to sidestep the debate that is bound to arise out of her frequent espousals of love for her country. Her friends and the industry, Karan Johar, Swara Bhasker, and her co-star Vicky Kaushal were few o the celebrities who attended the special screening of "Raazi". Neither does she let the whole "Kashmiri woman giving up her body to the nation" deter her at all. But even while doing that, she covers all grounds, leaving no room for ambiguities that is often the case with a spy film. And visible but quickly masked. And the rest goes on about the attempts of Sehmat in sending the information gathered from Pakistan back to India. And relevant in these extremely fractious times where everyone's patriotic credentials are determined on the basis of their identities. The film didn't just make money for its makers, Varun was hailed for his performance and decision to move outside of romance and comedy roles. Nicely interspersed into the espionage thriller are tender moments from a gradually blossoming marital bond between Sehmat and Iqbal (Vicky Kaushal). As Bhatt delivers a compelling and impressive central performance as a spy who betrays her family, there's no hand-wringing sentimentality or obvious flag-waving. Shishir Sharma has been decent. Composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. The trio has teamed up with lyricist Gulzar, for a soundtrack that may be familiar but doesn't at all push the boundaries. Here are five things from Raazi that stuck with me after I watched it.
