We can call RAW or Romeo Akbar Walter to be a content-driven film with a holding story. Because of the gigantic research did by Robbie Grewal before composing this film. The screenplay and execution are by all accounts a decent one yet when the film propels it crashes. The selection of shooting areas is to be accused of it as these have helped the film to get the vintage feel. The film someplace takes after to Raazi, however, varies from numerous points of view, on account of John who has completed an extraordinary job in it. The reality that it’s enlightening and that is it! You could experience an elegantly composed history book for the equivalent though. It underestimates the viewers and tests the tolerance at standard interims! So as to portray a bold story, the creators overlook how to appropriately execute it
The portrayal begins with clarifying the introduction of Bangladesh and how the circumstances were there amid the Indo-Pak war of 1971. After a couple of in all respects inadequately displayed about the data, we see an elderly person recounting a Shayari in a lobby. It simply required a camera centre around his face to perceive the person is John Abraham (Romeo here). Romeo works in a bank in Delhi, from where he’s snatched by the head of Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW) – Srikanth Rai (Jackie Shroff).
Romeo swings to Akbar Malik as he’s sent to Pakistan for a covert mission. He’s gotten some information about a certain Isaq Afridi (Anil George) and the general population around him. While he stirs up the general population over yonder, Srikanth with the utilization of Romeo/Akbar’s data avoids a deadly assault back in India.
This film resembles Indo-Pak matches; everybody realizes who will win at last. But at any rate, in Cricket, they attempt to make it fascinating till the last ball. Rome Akbar Walter’s story is all discussion no show! Contents like these work when they are articulately composed yet here it’s everything turbulent. The story simply doesn’t hold your consideration for a long range of time. There are excites however constrained and insufficient to make the sort of effect this story required.
John Abraham conveys a fine act. Obviously, he exceeds expectations in the physically boisterous sequences yet needs to chip away at the passionate ones. Jackie Shroff doesn’t fit the character of Srikanth Rai. He looks smart in everything about the scene yet that vernacular was a lot for a Chief of R&AW. Mouni Roy is mercilessly squandered! Her character has no degree to become at all and she remains uninteresting for whatever screentime she has. Sikander Kher does well as Colonel Khan, he looks at his character and talks like one. Yet, he’s once more deceived for getting a crazy character.
This film required an alternate writer Robbie’s heading is easily proven wrong but since the story is so level, you simply don’t get the opportunity to value whatever else. Tapan Tushar Basu’s camera covers the rural 70s effortlessly yet the dim shading tone of the film squeezed your vision now and again. Hanif Shaikh’s score gets certain scenes however goes unregistered at numerous spots. It is anything but another thing in Bollywood to get an uproarious BGM with a subject this way. Songs are only an unjustifiable misuse of your time.
Romeo Akbar Walter could have been much superior to anythiththatt it is currently. The paper-meagre plot, professing to be a great deal shrewd than what it is upheld by an exceptionally lousy portrayal.
My Rating 2.5 / 5
