The first half is gripping and the plotting is excellent.

If you want to know what a slow and painful death feels like, go watch this movie ' Romeo Akbar Walter'.

Mind blowing story based on real event .

Such movies are worth watching as it shows patriotism at a different level.

But to cut the makers some slack, RAW has its moments, though not enough to keep the audiences glued to their seats (I was yawning a bit in the first half due to the slow narrative).

RAW is very simple and cliche from the beginning scene.

First thing first, RAW - Romeo Akbar Walter is a slow burner and demands your patience for a good amount of the first hour.

The plot was well-planned but the execution was slow.

No plot and character development.

Nilesh Girdhar's editing is quite slow and the film is too long at 144 minutes.

A simple yet intense spy movie.

It's definitely breathtaking and thrilling to watch.

However, narration is too slow for most part and the tension doesn't quite build up like in the similar spy movie Raazi.

Romeo Akbar Waltar, a gripping masterpiece woven deftly, with the right amount of suspense, action and music.

However, flawed execution, lacklustre storytelling, languid pace and far-fetched writing, makes this one a tad hard to embrace.

After a slow start, movie picks up .

It's a slow paced movie.

While RAW isn't jingoistic either, it's a well-intended but drab film that fails to hold your attention.

1) This well made, riveting espionage thriller.

waste of time.

Last 20 minutes are breathtaking and full of suspense.

That's the one thing I can call truly unpredictable.

The first half is slow paced, but is perfect to establish the characters and second half keeps you on the edge of your seats.

Worth watching.

Worst movie .

First half is a bit slow, a superb second half with twisted plot which ends in a nail-biting climax.

Romeo Akbar Walter is an impressive action thriller that however might not impress die-hard thriller fans, largely because the twists (except a few) and suspenseful moments are pretty much predictable.

Good direction with poor budget and slow storyline is what ruined the movie.

Gripping , crisp and intriguing - Must watch - surprised by negative reviews by some critics .

waste of time .

Else this is a very much waste of time.

The movie does numerous things really well and avoids over the top action scenes and cliché that plague spy movies.

It's really enjoyable and worth watching also due to its interesting espionage theme that appeals to viewers of all ages.

Boring to the bone, clichéd tropes, cringe worthy dialogue and unrelateable characters.

Worst Movie With Fake story .

Worst movie ever seen ....

I like the story and the direction, it will keep you on the edge with every scene.

And once you blend in, it's a highly engaging and interesting spy drama.

Very very long and boring.. .

Crisp, breathtaking must watch .

Though a decent one time watch & despite dwelling in the same genre as Raazi which was an awesome film to say the least, RAW falters a bit with its lack of past paced action owing to the slow narrative inspite of a stellar cast.

This movie was very slow paced and the songs and romantic scenes were totally unnecessary,which as a result caused the movie to suffer in terms of quality.

I found myself yawning in the start of the film.

Total waste of time.

Boring and Lengthy .

Slow paced movie with lack of hard work.

Robbie Grewal's story is promising and could have made for an exciting thriller.

The second half is faster and keeps you on the edge of your seats.

Boring 1st half 🙄 a bad version of 'raazi' .

Last 30 minutes of the movie are breathtaking and you would be at the edge of your seats.

It is so slow that I fall asleep 2 times and had hard time to stay awake.
