Also, its too long, predictable and felt slow at times.

Engaging and heartfelt .

Most predictable and overrated movie of this year.

The story is gripping right from the beginning and no where does the movie loses its pace.

Very thrilling and motivational!

Performances: Alia Bhatt once again proves that she is a great actress if given a compelling script.

A thoroughly enjoyable espionage flick that has the right amount of all the requisite ingredients, Raazi succeeds as that rare Bollywood thriller you never saw coming.

The story and script is also gripping.

If I talk about Vicky Kaushal he made a stunning act.

If you can combine it with a gripping story, that's even better.

But the final thirty minutes of the movie was predictable and rushed.

Boring .

See John Abraham, Salman Khan spy movies they have good action plus script, this was just boring.

An intriguing adaptation of the Novel "Calling Sehmat" that will keep one glued to the seats throughout the movie.

devastating yet touching drama with a thrilling plot .

The movie is thrilling and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

The movie has an even pace throughout and enough thrilling moments which kept me glued.

After the first 10mins or so I was about to turn it off but then I became involved in the story and there were some genuinely gripping moments.

' Raazi title track is engaging.

Waste of time...

Boring , predicatable and totally not worth the time .

Gripping at times .

Waste of time Waste of effort Waste of money Waste of time Waste of effort Waste of money

The final-act is the real weak-link, in an otherwise gripping film.

It is the story telling and the script that is gripping and has one (and in my case, literally) on the edge of the seat.

Verdict: Meghna Gulzar is proving to be one of the compelling female directors of recent times.

Some of the movie, though thrilling, feels too easy like when Sehmat plants an "orgy of evidence" against the trusted servant (who she killed earlier).

What a waste of human life!

This is a story which is enthralling, engaging and heartfelt at the same time.

To be honest, 'Raazi' could've been tighter & more gripping, since it has such an interesting story to tell.

He had the capability of representing the army of Pakistan and he was kept engaging throughout the flick.

It's emotional, thrilling and poignant.


Logically coherent movie & a gripping thriller .

Stunning performance by Aalia...

Exciting .

It pulls off a tight script with good acting, and a realistic believable storyline that leaves you on the edge of your seat for two hours.

No story, no thrill, no depth in acting, no dialogues.

Highly recommend it.

Must Watch movie, Very Gripping Thrill.

The most overrated film in recent times, there's obviously something really suspicious and a clear bias about the ratings and reviews here, apart from Alia Bhatt's commendable performance, there's nothing to look forward to in this totally predictable, slowly-paced, lengthy film, a waste of time!

story is predictable and.

Boring , predicatable and totally not worth the time .

Underwhelming, over-hyped, slowly-paced, waste of time and money.

Her husband comes to know about her and he decides to arrest her - in a state of confusion, she survives and witnesses the fact that the Indian intelligence would have killed her as well without much squirms!

Before, she had a flop streak of films such as Just Married which was mediocre and Filhaal which was very slow and cringe-worthy.

His shots and perspective of some intense scenes were really an asset to the movie.

Though the screenplay is very much predictable, strong acting by the actors and good music keep you awake in the movie.

To be honest its a good movie but director fails to excite audience people at the start just think how boring it is start a movie like that

I love the music because the songs fit in well.. The movie is tense, gripping and in the end a lesson for the collateral damage..

Want to kill 3 hours of your life?

The only issues with the movie is the pacing which was a tad bit slow at times and also the modus operandi of Alia's spy work seemed a bit dubious.

Definitely better to save your money and watch this later on Netflix or Amazon Prime or TV.

From the very start, the movie is peppered with twists and turns that will leave you with your eyes wide open- some predictable and some misleading.

Boring, dramatic below average movie .

Vicky Kaushal was good as the beguiled husband, and his restrained yet emotional male character (supporting a powerful female lead) is a Bollywood rarity, and was thoroughly enjoyable.

The Screenplay, which is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehmat, gets a bit slow at times & even the pacing is erratic.

you'll be on the edge of your seat worrying about the girl.

While some of the sequences, especially after Sehmat gets married & begins her life a spy, are extremely engrossing, some parts lag too.

Genuinely one of the best movies I've ever watched, simply fantastic and keeps you on the edge at every minute.

The first-hour has a few moments that don't engage, but the final 20-minutes, are the least compelling.

The movie started off as subtle and engaging.

boring and predictible .

What makes it short of a thriller though is the editing which makes it a dull affair before the climax is reached and takeaways are drafting in your mind.

The content of the film is really heart touching and exciting as well.

Amidst all the bogus and repetitive movies this comes with a change.

The movie is totally, totally predictable and stretched.

While an overtly dramatic and rather cliché climax could have been avoided, it's only a minor hiccup in the otherwise compelling thriller.

very intense movie.

On the downside though, you're slapped out of your suspension-of-disbelief when Sehmat spends way too long screaming and lashing out at the officer who trained her near the end of the movie.

Want to get bored?

Picturized so well that each minute is worth watching.

Alia is believable as well, holding her own in scenes setup like horror movie jump-scares - you know it is thrilling because the film tells you it is.

Waste of time movie...

You will get bored!

Very gripping.

Waste of time Waste of effort Waste of money .

A gripping, devastating spy thriller anchored by a tremendous lead performance, a solid supporting cast, and great visuals.

The screenplay is edge of the seat-gripping.

It is a slow burner, this is neither an Akshay/Salman/Sunny Deol movie.

The story has its' strengths in the Buildup phase with nail biting tension and suspenseful drama all over till the end.
