A Scene from Raazi - Alia Bhatt

Here's what critics have to say about Alia Bhatt Starer Raazi:

Kunal Guha of Mumbai Mirror: 

"Unlike most films within the genre that focus chiefly on the 'operation', Raazi also delves into the debilitating position that secret agents who stumble in and out of the margins of history must sometimes assume. Given the political climate, this one's a relevant watch — especially since little has turned between the two nations over the years,".

Rating: 3.5 Stars

Neil Soans of The Times of India:

"Amidst all the compelling performances, this is Alia's film as she continues to push her boundaries as an actor while challenging our expectations of her. In the same vein, 'Raazi' defies the spy genre's traditional expectations of full-blown action sequences. Instead, Meghna Gulzar's steady hand gradually ramps up the tension throughout, leading to an explosive final act in this strong dramatic thriller. It also leaves you questioning the repercussions of war on the human psyche,."

Rating:  4.5 stars

Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times:

"The actors sometimes falter with their accent and dialect, but intrigue around Sehmat's adventures doesn't give them much time to complain. Raazi is a sensibly written and finely performed film that takes a close look at the ordinary lives of extraordinary people. Not to miss"

Rating:  4 stars

Shalini Langer of The Indian Express:

"At a time when hate and anger are the currency of the subcontinent, a film like Raazi needs to be made. For peeping into the Valley and finding a true-blue patriot, for looking across the border and finding decency, and for giving Kashmiri embroidery as worn by Alia an authentic, modern, featherlight touch,"

Rating: 3.5 stars

Rohit Bhatnagar of Deccan Chronicle:

"It emerges as a sure shot winner, actress impresses with each slot and her performance in this film is matched with her performance in Udta Punjab. Overall, Raazi celebrates the spy-thriller genre and proves good content prevails. Perhaps, a lot of aspects make this film unapologetically finest of 2018 so far" 

Sameeksha of News18:  

"Intense, emotional and unnerving at the same time, the sensitivity and emotional quotient of the characters- especially Alia's Sehmat makes Raazi a gripping watch that keeps your mind and heart on the edge, till the end".
