The huge wave created by Meghna Gulzar’s espionage drama refuses to die as the film is moving past the coveted 100 crore mark. Meghna has shaken the minds of many with her film Talvar and with Raazi, she has cemented her position in the Hindi film industry. The director proved that ‘content is king’ with her sensitive story telling tugs at your heart. Sehmat played by Alia Bhatt, is convincing as a vulnerable youngster who suddenly finds herself torn between the love for her country and love for her husband.
Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh wrote, “#Raazi is UNSTOPPABLE... Third Wed biz is HIGHER than third Mon and Tue and that says it all... [Week 3] Fri 2.25 cr, Sat 4.20 cr, Sun 4.42 cr, Mon 1.82 cr, Tue 1.80 cr, Wed 1.92 cr. Total: ₹ 108.04 cr. India biz.”
Alia Bhatt has sufficient star power to drive a film. Vicky Kaushal, who is himself an accomplished actor, is then a cherry on the cake. Raazi will surely do good business over the weekend. Beyond that, word-of-mouth promotion will come into play.
Raazi features Alia Bhatt in the role of Kashmiri girl Sehmat who is married off to Pakistani army officer to spy for her nation. Vicky Kaushal plays her reel husband and real life mother Soni Razdan plays Alia's reel mom for the big screen adaptation of Harinder Sikka's novel 'Calling Sehmat'.
