The much-awaited trailer of Alia Bhatt’s upcoming drama Raazi was released on Tuesday morning. According to the makers, Raazi is the story of a young girl, who was sent to Pakistan in 1971 to source out any information she could, as war was becoming imminent between India and Pakistan. It is the journey of an ordinary Indian girl in extraordinary circumstances.

Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Raazi, which is based on the novel Calling Sehmat by Harinder Sikka, will also see Alia Bhatt share screen space for the first time with Vicky Kaushal. Vicky was last seen in the Netflix film Love Per Square Foot.

    Raazi trailer: Quick take

    Indianexpress.com's Sampada says, "Alia Bhatt stands out in the trailer of Meghna Gulzar's Raazi and honestly, it comes as no surprise. She has aced every character she has done till date and this one falls perfectly in line with the actor's filmography. The film takes on our ever favourite India-Pakistan rivalry route but we're hoping it'll present us with something more than what we have already seen, and we have seen a lot. Special mention to the way the film's name appears in the trailer. They present it in a morse code format that is in complete sync with the film. Haven't seen any good film in 2018 so far so hoping this one will come as a much-needed good trip to the movies."

    Raazi Trailer Review

    Raazi's trailer introduces us to the three key elements of Meghna Gulzar’s film: love, betrayal and patriotism. A naive Alia aka Sehmat transforms into an Indian spy on the order of her father played by actor Rajit Kapur and gets married to a Pakistani officer (Vicky Kaushal) with a mission. Her story is one of ‘valour and honour’. In this more than two minutes long trailer, Alia establishes herself as one of a kind actor whose effortless acting adds to this espionage thriller.

Raazi trailer: Quick take

Indianexpress.com's Shivangi says, "Trust Alia Bhatt to steal the show every time she graces the screen! But the Raazi trailer has also left me curious about how director Meghna Gulzar will deal with a sensitive topic like the India-Pakistan tussle over Kashmir. If she can actually manage to present an honest picture without getting didactic, Raazi could indeed turn out to be an impressive watch."

Raazi trailer: Quick take

Indianexpress.com's Mimansa says, "Give Alia Bhatt any screenplay and she'll ace it. And this is exactly what she is doing in what appears to be her next brilliant performance in Raazi. The heartthrob plays an Indian spy on a mission in neighbouring Pakistan. From being a vulnerable young girl who seems too delicate to carry out secret missions to her transformation into a woman who ultimately doesn't think twice before picking up a gun to protect her nation, Alia shows enough graph in the trailer already. Now, wonder what all lies ahead from her kitty in the film as a whole. Meghna Gulzar's latest directorial also stars talented actor Vicky Kaushal as a Pakistani army officer who is giving Alia full support in her performance. The film also boasts of a good supporting cast. Alia as a Muslim girl with the perfect mannerism, body language and look is spot-on. Her face exudes innocence while her eyes are focused. The first impact of the trailer has been great and we cannot wait for the film to release on May 11."

Indianexpress.com's Robby says, "So young, and so talented. Is there any role which is a challenge for Bhatt progeny Alia? After convincing performances in Highway, Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi, I can't wait to see what Alia has to offer in Meghna Gulzar's Raazi."

Alia Bhatt on Raazi

Talking about her role in Raazi, Alia Bhatt told The Times of India, “For me, the best part is that this character is not a Lara Croft. She’s a young, naive girl, who decides to risk her life for her country. This was the most beautiful aspect, because I didn’t have to enact anything. Being brave doesn’t mean that you don’t get scared. The sequences were overwhelming, but I wasn’t afraid of holding on and going all the way. A lot of technical preparation went into playing Sehmat. I had to improve my Urdu and then unlearn what I had picked up, because I play a Kashmiri and I wasn’t required to speak chaste Urdu or Hindi. I even learnt the Morse Code by heart. It was something Meghna believed that I should do authentically, and I feel that it helped me get perfectly into the character. One could have argued that kisi ko kya pata chalega, but we had to be as authentic as possible. I also learnt how to drive a Jonga.”
