Karan Johar, Urvashi Rautela and others catch special screening of Raazi

Janhvi Kapoor joins Sara Ali Khan and Ishaan Khatter at Alia Bhatt’s Raazi screening

The first time we meet this character, Sehmat, she runs onto the middle of the road to rescue an imperilled squirrel - cute-meat if not a meet-cute - and the film's pitch changes immediately.

Meghana Gulzar has over time picked stories which have been inspired by real events. Raazi is an Indian period thriller movie which is directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by Vineet Jain, Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta under the banner of Dharma Productions.

In this special feature, we will look at five most incredible performances of Alia Bhatt that could label her the best actress of her generation, ranked from the best to, well, less best. Syed may be a staunch Pakistani army officer, protective about his country, but that doesn't stop him from embracing his Indian daughter-in-law.

And when it comes to jang, war, everything is on line - whether it is relationships or lives. Raazi is an adaptation of Harinder S Sikka's Calling Sehmat, in which a 20-year-old Kashmiri woman inherits her father's espionage duties.

European Union countries to convene with Iran on nuclear deal
Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke Friday about the USA decision. "We will have to discuss that with Iran". The documents contain designs predating the deal for nuclear weapons, Israel said.

She is, after all, a Muslim, and a Kashmiri Muslim. As per the reviews, there is hardly anything that you won't like about the film. Playing an unnamed Bihari migrant who gets brutally raped after getting in trouble with drug mafia, Alia Bhatt handles her character with the right amount of sensitivity and fierceness. "Main hi to mulk hoon", she says to her Intelligence Bureau handler when he asks why she is willing to risk her life for an abstract cause.

Third, Sehmat falls genuinely in love with her husband and his family members but does not deviate even one percent from her primary mission, at great cost to her psyche. Neither does she let the whole "Kashmiri woman giving up her body to the nation" deter her at all. It will be quite interesting how her newly released performs in India. And visible but quickly masked. Sehmat is trained as an Indian spy on the order of her father (played by actor Rajit Kapur). And relevant in these extremely fractious times where everyone's patriotic credentials are determined on the basis of their identities. Alia, Vicky and Meghna Gulzar were seen posing together for the paparazzi. There is tension, drama, and a multitude of emotions that keep the audiences involved.

Coming to the music, the Raazi title track by Arijit Singh lingers with you for long with Gulzar's meaningful lyrics and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's effective music. Without hitting or hating the enemy, "Raazi" makes a case for unalloyed patriotism to the point of being ruthless to oneself and the enemy.

Full marks are also due to the subdued performance of Vicky Kaushal as Iqbal, Shishir Sharma as his father, and Ashwath Bhatt as his brother. Here are five things from Raazi that stuck with me after I watched it. It is the kind of performance that may easily be mistaken for an impressive one - we do often treasure "Most Acting" over 'Best Acting, ' after all - but she is out of her depth, particularly because Gulzar surrounds the A-lister with a remarkably authentic ensemble.
