#TheLifesWayReviews - RAAT AKELI HAI @NetflixSA #Movie #Crime #RaatAkeliHai

Hi Friends, 

Raat Akeli Hai is the new crime drama movie which was released on Netflix on 31st July 2020 and is directed by Honey Trehan. The movie stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte and Ila Arun in a powerful performance which also has Shweta Tripathi, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Shivani Raghuvanshi, Swanand Kirkire, Nishant Dahiya and Aditya Srivastava. 

The movie is a murder mystery of Raghuveer Singh played by Khalid Tyabji on the night of his second marriage to Radhika Apte. The whole family and relatives go quiet about the murder and bring in a small town cop Inspector Jatil Yadav to solve the case played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui. As the investigation progresses, he comes to know that he has already met Radha played by Radhika Apte as she tries to run away from her parents some 5 years ago. Around the same time, Raghuveer Singh's wife and the driver are also killed by a mercenary. 

The crime drams is really fast-paced and slowly unpacks the mystery behind the murder and the other selfish motives of all the characters one by one. Jatil Yadav falls in love with Radha as he is a bachelor whose mother played by Ila Arun always tries to find a suitable bride for him wherever she goes. The scenes between Ila Arun and Nawazuddin are really funny and the dialogues are really good.

The crime-solving capability and character of Jatil Yadav are tested as the whole system is against him and doesn't want him to solve the case as the family is against the outsider Radha who gets the share in the property due to her marriage with Raghuveer Singh. They want to put the blame on her and looking for an opportunity to throw her out of the house and may kill her on the way. The locations look really real as the movie is shot in Lucknow and Kanpur. 

The film never felt like it's limited budget release or digital platform release but made on the scale of a full feature film and rises way above the other feature film releases too in recent times. The acting of Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui is amazingly great and the tension building between them is great to watch. Raat Akeli Hai has a rugged and rustic look to the whole drama and it feels really real and believable. 

The movie is produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Abhishek Chaubey and written by Smita Singh and is available on Netflix to watch if you have not seen yet. This movie is 1000 times better than the last released movie of Nawazuddin named Ghoomketu on the ZEE5 digital platform. If you are a fan of Nawazuddin you should not miss this Singham style fun without beating anyone, killing anyone or any other un-necessary macho action. RATING 4/5
