Movie Review: Romeo Akbar Walter (2019)
RAW – Romeo Akbar Walter is a slow burner and demands your patience for a good amount of the first hour. And once you blend in, it’s a highly engaging and interesting spy drama. Based in 1971, RAW – Romeo Akbar Walter is about a banker Rehmat Ali aka Romeo, who is chosen by the RAW chief (Jackie Shroff) to be an Indian spy in Pakistan. Leaving his mother behind, Romeo takes the identity of Akbar Malik and migrates to Pakistan. The rest of the movie is about how Akbar helped India during the period that led to the 1971 war and his journey to becoming Walter.
