Director Meghna Gulzar's Bollywood movie Raazi featuring Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal in lead roles has received extremely positive review and rating from the audience around the world.

Raazi is a period thriller film that is set against the backdrop of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. Vineet Jain, Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta have produced the movie under the banner of Dharma Productions. The film has been awarded a U/A certificate and its runtime is 2.20 hours.

Raazi movie story: The film is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehmat which is inspired by real events. It is about an Indian spy married to a Pakistani military officer (Vicky Kaushal) during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 on the order of her father (Rajit Kapur).

Analysis: Raazi deals with a fresh and unique story that is all about immaculate portrayal of courage, determination and patriotism. Meghna Gulzar and Bhavani Iyer's taut screenplay is the USP of the movie, which is gripping, intense and high on emotional quotient. The director explained the tactics of espionage in the simplest manner, say the audience.

Performances: Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal have delivered brilliant performances, which are the highlights of the movie Raazi. Rajit Kapur, Shishir Sharma, Jaideep Ahlawat, Ashwath Bhatt, Amruta Khanvilkar and Soni Razdan have done justice to their respective roles, say the audience.

Technical: Raazi has rich production elements and Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy's music, Jay I Patel's cinematography and brilliant choreography of war scenes are the attractions on the technical front, say the viewers.

#Raazi is an outstanding spy-survival thriller. A gripping tale of relentless love for one's country, people, emotional turmoil and loss of innocence. Putting your life & morals on the line for a cause way bigger. Kudos @aliaa08 @meghnagulzar for a nuanced & earnest storytelling What stands out the most about #Raazi is it's immaculate portrayal of courage, determination and patriotism - they don't scream. @aliaa08 @vickykaushal09 @meghnagulzar and team @JungleePictures This one deserves a special mention. @aliaa08 gives you goosebumps with her performance. She's turning out to be revelation in every single film. Such a powerful young actor, who makes it all look so effortless. #raazi

#Raazi - interval point. So far, so fantastic! God, I am loving @aliaa08 more and more with every movie release of hers! #Raazi is absolutely terrific. Engaging right from the first scene, it is deftly directed by @meghnagulzar (special mention to her dialogues too). This is a cliched line for sure, but Raazi has @aliaa08 's best performance. Also kudos to @karanjohar for backing this after Ghazi. Little overwhelmed by #Raazi because that's what good movies do to me! Amazed by the terrific amount of range @aliaa08 is bringing out with her every movie. With @meghnagulzar 's assured direction, she just wins you over with a rad act! Here's my honest take on @RaaziHoon!

Shivangi Thakur @thakur_shivangi

Saw #Raazi today. @meghnagulzar is magician. Sehmat (@aliaa08) was magnificent & spectacular. Iqbal (@vickykaushal09) was decorous & sedate. Munira (@AmrutaOfficial) was pleasant and new talent which we found is @Jaiahlawat. Kudos to the whole team of @RaaziHoon @DharmaMovies

LatestLY @latestly

What a performance by @aliaa08 in #Raazi. The film is fiercely patriotic and is an edge-of-the-seat thriller at the same time.

#Raazi is so engaging. I'm still thinking about its nail biting moments, hours later. Love me a good thriller.

Altaaf Shaikh‏ @altaafshaikh

WONDERFUL MOVIE ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Patriotic, Thriller and Entertaining.. Tremendous performance by #AliaBhatt .. She surely deserve National & Filmfare award..!! #VickyKaushal too good..Hats off to #MeghnaGulzar Ji..MUST WATCH #Raazi

Neelam J‏ @Nilzrav

Review: #Raazi can be easily called a PREQUEL to the 2015 movie The Ghazi Attack, but from the RAW agency's perspective. It's an Alia Bhatt show all the way. The intensity and depth of her performance is probably the solo reason that will keep you seated till the end credits.

Madhusudan Thakkar‏ @madhusudan41

#MovieReview #Raazi doesn't try to be very cerebral and that works tremendously in its favour. The tactics of espionage are explained in the simplest manner. It's is far from the glamourised version of spies you usually find in Hindi films that makes it powerful drama #Raazi #Movie Review: Alia Bhatt Lives Up To The Mind-Numbing Vision Of Meghna Gulzar

Mohit Dantre‏ @MoooPoint

Absolutely loved #Raazi ! Such solid performances @aliaa08 & @vickykaushal09 and the entire supporting cast. Power packed and gripping and yet so beautifully emotional. Highly recommended! #RaaziReview
