The highly anticipated Raazi releases tomorrow, May 11, and we couldn’t be more excited. The film has been screened to a select few and their reactions are overwhelmingly positive, leading us to believe that the wait has been worth it. If you still need some nudging, then we’ve got five reasons that should make you want to book your tickets ASAP.
She’s been in the cinematic world for not too long, but she’s already a force to reckon with. Here, we see her in a role that will allow her to show us the sheer breadth of her talent as well as be a testament to how much she’s grown as an actress since her first stint in Student of the Year. We’ll see her take on the role of a young Kashmiri girl who is persuaded to marry a Pakistani officer in order to obtain vital information for the Indian intelligence during the Indo-Pak war.
We previously saw her work when she directed the movie Talvar, which was based on the true story of a double murder case. Her adeptness at research and bringing the details to the foreground was abundantly clear there, and you can count on the fact that she’ll come through here as well.
Based on a true story
Raazi is based on Harinder Sikka’s novel Calling Sehmat, which was in turn inspired by a story he came across of a woman that he named Sehmat in the book.
In case you haven’t seen the trailer, then do so, as it sets the scene for a thriller that’ll keep the whole audience on the edge of their seats.
We all know that music plays an extremely important part in building the movie, and the soundtrack for Raazi doesn’t disappoint. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy teamed up with Gulzar to produce tunes that are sure to stick with you long after the movie ends.
