Spy thriller movie ‘Romeo Akbar Walter- RAW‘ released in theatres today. Robby Grewal’s directorial is based on true incidents and features John Abraham in the lead role of India’s undercover agent. The movie is set in the 1971 Indo-Pak war era and John plays a spy carrying out his mission in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).
Romeo (John) is a bank cashier who has been recruited by India’s foreign intelligence agency — the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), as they believe that he is the master of disguise.
The film was expected to be a psychological drama with a bit of drama, action, and suspense turned out to be a tedious costume drama with no emotions or tension.
‘RAW’ fails to keep you captive or engage and after a time it even bores. The script might have been interesting but the execution is poor.
While the actors John Abraham, Sikander Kher and Jackie Shroff gave the best they could for flawed writing, the story turned out to be a huge disappointment.
