RAAZI Is A Spy Movie Worth Watching

The 2018 Indian movie RAAZI is a spy movie worth watching. It is one of Tom’s all-time favorite spy movies. Have you heard of RAAZI?

RAAZI is a fictionalized drama about a real spy in the 1971 India-Pakistan war.  This is an espionage movie, not an action movie, which we think is a good thing.

The central theme of this movie is “What are you prepared to do for your country?”

Why is this a spy movie worth watching?   Dan and Tom detail the reasons why, and also talk about some of the criticisms of RAAZI. Listening to this episode will enhance your understanding and viewing experience of the movie!

Alia Bhatt fans will not want to miss RAAZI. She is excellent in it, as is the rest of the cast.

As of this posting (April 2, 2024), RAAZI is available on Amazon Prime in the US. RAAZI is released in the Hindi language with English subtitles. 

So, have you seen RAAZI? If so, do you think RAAZI is a spy movie worth watching? Did Dan and Tom miss anything?  Let us know your thoughts, ideas for future episodes, and what you thought of this episode by dropping us a note at info@spymovienavigator.com.  The more we hear from you, the better the show will be!

Raazi – 2018

Raazi Poster - 150x200

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?”
