Raazi - first Indian film with female lead to earn 100 crore & more!
30 May 2018 | by inforazaSee all my reviews

Raazi is one-of-a-kind spy thriller! What is more surprising is that it is based on a true story (although in a dramatized form)! This true story itself is something that, I am sure, NO ONE could ever imagine in their wildest dreams!

But here's something that I am sure you will agree with!

Probably, we all would've enjoyed the movie more had we not been aware of the true story, beforehand! The Trailers and Reviews acted as complete spoilsports!

There are 3 main highlights of the film:

1. The story itself which is thriller - with a surprise event towards the end

2. Alia Bhat's acting - which was both, moving & convincing

3. The normal treatment of Pakistani characters (a first-of-its-kind in Hindi cinema)

Is this film worth seeing even a second time? Yes, it is!
