Raabta is the story of Shiv (Sushant Singh Rajput) who moves to Budapest after which he falls for Saira (Kriti Sanon) instantly on the first sight. He finally convinces and by the time Saira falls for Shiv, the third character Zak (Jim Sarbh) who is a liquor baron. He is fond of Saira and is obessed with her after several rejections. It is during this time Saira starts thinking about how her bond with Shiv seems beyond the transcends of time and decades. The rest of Raabta is all about the past and what happens next. Watch the film to know about many interesting facts.

Raabta has some interesting moments and the romantic episodes which will sure impress a set of young audience. But this alone is not enough for a film to end up impressive. Raabta has many poorly written episodes and most of them look fake. Things change within fraction of seconds and the film switches a romantic saga to the deadly Game of Thrones which is something hard to digest. The songs have been decent but the characters have not been linked good. With many flaws, the first half of Raabta tries hard to convince the audience.

At the same time, the second half of Raabta too suffers huge lag because of the poor writing and narration skills. Most of the episodes have been loosely executed and looks outdated. Sushant Singh Rajput seems hyper active in many of the episodes and some of the characters have been utterly wasted. Jim Sarbh has been extremely stupendous on screen but his character has not been written well. With a poor second half, Raabta ends up on a dull note and it completely fails to impress the audience.

Performance :

Sushant Singh Rajput is one of the finest actors undoubtedly however he seems to be over-active in most of the scenes. He performed with ease and Sushant has been exceptional in the romantic episodes. Kriti Sanon delivered out her best and she looked stunning on screen but she needs to improve a lot with her expressions. Jim Sarbh has been deadly in the assigned role and he performed with ease. However his character has not been well written. Rajkumar Rao and Varun Sharma have been wasted completely. All the other actors did justice for their assignments.

The story of Raabta has interesting points though it resembles many old films. The screenplay and the dialogues have not been taken enough care of. They look outdated and many of the episodes miss the logic. The music and the background score have been decent and so is the cinematography. The production values have been lavish but Dinesh Vijan fails completely in churning out Raabta into an impressive action drama.

Final Word

Raabta is a huge misfire and fails badly in impressing the audience. Though the romantic drama impresses, the rest of the film makes Raabta a huge dud.

  • Julie 2 Movie Review
    Julie 2 Movie Review

    Julie 2 starts on a decent note but the film turns weird as it passes on. The levels of vulgarity has been injected into the film forcefully which makes the film look unnatural. The skin show of Raai Laxmi looks decent for some time but the audience get shattered for the unwanted glamorous attempts throughout. The director fails in all the available ways in narrating the dark facts with utmost perfection. The first half of Julie 2 has been dull and fails to live up the expectations. The second half of Julie 2 too offers nothing interesting. The entire film looks predictable, outdated and creates enough confusion. The director misses the clarity on his hold and the plot gets deviated several times. The songs have been ok but they don't match the film's mood. The climax has nothing much to offer as the entire plot has been unfolded before. The second half of Julie 2 is a sheer disappointment.


  • Ittefaq Movie Review
    Ittefaq Movie Review

    The first half of Ittefaq has been well framed and is perfectly narrated. The film has been tight and racy right from the first shot and is a treat to watch. You will be deceived with each twist that comes in the film. The performaces need a bow and the entire first half has been extremely interesting. The second half too has been well maintained and is captured well. The director made sure that the film is not deviated at any frame and is equally thrilling and entertaining. The climax is hard hitting that one will be left boggled. On the whole Ittefaq is a film that should not be missed.


  • Golmaal Again Movie Review
    Golmaal Again Movie Review

    Golmaal Again has been focussed mostly on entertainment which has been laced with horrifying episodes. The film is not a comedy unlike the previous installments of Golmaal and is laced with loads of horror. The songs have been shot well and the first half of Golmaal Again looks decent with enough dose of entertainment. The second half of Golmaal Again dips down though it has dose of entertainment. Some of the episodes have been repeated and have been taken from the previous installments. Some of the episodes fail to make any impact however the climax of the film has been thoroughly engaging. On the whole, the second half of Golmaal Again is a disappoinment but manages to sail finally.


  • Secret Superstar Movie Review
    Secret Superstar Movie Review

    Secret Superstar starts on an interesting note and it explains all the small and interesting aspects of the lead characters. Before execution, Secret Superstar has been penned well and is perfectly presented on screen. The performances along with the background score and the way the film has been executed will blow everyone away. The entire first half frames up the film beautifully and makes a strong impact across the audience. The second half has been exceptional right from the first frame and is a treat to watch. Aamir Khan will be seen in an extended cameo and Zaira Wasim tops the show with her flawless and stupendous performance. The pre-climax episodes elevate the film and the climax has been hard hitting. Secret Superstar has a beautiful second half which conveys a strong message for every Indian.

    Judwaa 2 Movie Review

    Judwaa 2 has been promising and entertaining right from the first frame. Varun Dhawan carried the entire film on his shoulders and he is a treat to watch. He excelled completely in the comic scenes and Judwaa 2 is his best film till date. Though the plot has been completely predictable, it is the entertainment, action and the songs which leave the audience entertaining. The first half of Judwaa 2 has been decent and lives up the expectations. The second half of Judwaa 2 too stands decent because of the entertainment levels. All the characters have been recreated from the original and not much homework has been done. The makers have been completely focused on the entertainment and the glamour. The songs have been shot well and they come at the right time in the film. The climax has been quite appealing and on the whole the second half too is a passable ride completely.
