The movie starts with Hidayat Khan (Rajit Kapur) who is a hidden spy of Indian in Pakistan but the Pakistan army believes that he is doing work for them. Since he is now diagnosed with a lung tumour and he doesn’t have much time to work for India in the crucial time during 1971 war between Indo-Pak.
Then Hidayat Khan decides to send his daughter Sehmat Khan (Alia Bhat) to Pakistan for spying for India.

Alia Bhatt has done her best and has just gone into the skin of Sehmat who is just a 20 years old girl and as her family is engaged in the most dangerous work for India, the fear and emotional broken have seen in her face. Alia Bhatt is surely the face of Raazi.
Vicky Kaushal played the role of Sehmat’s husband and an army officer who is unware of a fact that his wife is an Indian spy who is taking information from his family. His emotions and love for his wife will first time make you love Pakistan’s army officer.
Besides Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal, Jaideep Ahlawat is the power of the film and how he became the centre of attraction in between the brilliant performance of Alia Bhatt.
Other actors like Rajit Kapur, Shishir Sharma, Soni Razdan, Ashwath Bhatt, Soni Razdan, and others have done their work brilliantly.
It has been a while since we heard compositions from the talented trio, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. They gave three songs Raazi, Ae Watan, and Dilbaro and all three songs are beautiful, especially these songs will give you the flavour of Kashmiri songs.
Its a great movie to watch. Watching this movie will give you some feel of patriotism and will encourge you to do something for your country.
