RAAZI is a 2018 Indian spy movie, based on Harinder S. Sikka’s book “Calling Sehmat”. The story is a fictionalized drama about a real spy, Sehmat Khan (not her real name). She spied for India at the onset of the India-Pakistani war of 1971. 

The always excellent Alia Bhatt stars as Sehmat Khan, an Indian college student who is recruited for RAW to spy on the Pakistanis. Sehmat has no background in spying and must learn quickly. Then she’s thrust into a very fluid situation that challenges her beliefs. 

Sehmat’s senior RAW officer is Khalid Mir. He is played by Jaideep Ahlawat, who really stands out in this movie. One of the most conflicted characters in the movie is Iqbal Syed, played by Vicky Kaushal. He is Pakistani and you have to feel for this guy. He’s the nicest guy in the world who ends up in a bad situation.

We think this is an excellent spy movie that any spy movie fan will enjoy. The way the two countries and people are portrayed is very even keeled.  Which is a refreshing change in these types of movies.

So, after watching this one, we have one question for you: “What are you prepared to do for your country?”
