Watch ‘Raazi’ trailer: Alia Bhatt as ‘Sehmat’ puts country before anything else

Published

on

New Delhi, April 10:  The trailer of Meghna Gulzar’s spy thriller Raazi, starring Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal in pivotal roles, is out, and we can just can’t wait for the release of the film on May 11.

This true-life story of a valorous Indian Muslim girl who risked her life by marrying a Pakistani and moving to the neighbouring country to spy for her own, is a story that was waiting to be told.

The trailer introduces us to the three key elements of Meghna Gulzar’s film: love, betrayal and patriotism.

The trailer, which starts with the India-Pakistan tension, shows Alia Bhatt as an Indian, being married off to a Pakistani by her father so that she can be the ‘eyes and ears’ of India in Pakistan.

Thus begins her new journey as a wife of a Pakistani army officer (played by Vicky Kaushal) and as an Indian spy. The trailer shows Alia as an obedient daughter, perfect wife and a fearless spy.

The trailer proves Alia takes to the role as she does every time.

Seeing the trailer, it wouldn’t be wrong to say, Alia is to Meghna Gulzar what Tabu was to Meghna’s father in “Maachis” and “Hu Tu Tu”.

Alia seems born to play Sehmat. And Vicky Kaushal as her Pakistani husband is to Alia what Sanjeev Kumar was to Suchitra Sen in Gulzar’S “Aandhi”. It’s not easy to make an impact where the woman has an author-backed role.

Alia dazzles in the trailer, as she moves with feline agility from innocent Indian girl to devious bride, plotting training to get information for our country. My heart leapt to my mouth as Alia’s Sehmat crossed the border, this time in a very geo-political sense.

The trailer shows the director recreating the 1971 period without straining for effect. This is a highly inflammable subject, filled with grandiloquent drama and flamboyant fury.

As a nation, while we boast of having people who fight and die for the nation, we also have some others whose contributions are not in any of our records, who are just stories of braveries. Meghna Gulzar’s espionage drama tells us the tale of one such unsung hero who left her mark on the Indian flag and our minds forever.
