Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte starring Raat Akeli Hai has turned out to be a good thriller and it is on the same range like Knives Out in Hollywood. I personally felt Raat Akeli Hai is like a typical Bollywood film with some gory scenes. The ending is really beautiful and it reminds me of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. The film has been released on Netflix and it seems that they want to target more Bollywood fans to watch movies on their platform.
What if this film was released in Theaters? The story is well written by Smita Singh and it has presented in a decent way. There is some problem with the screenplay but overall it worked well if we watch it in one go. The editing could have been a bit crispier with 15 to 20 minutes being trimmed. It is being edited by A Sreekar Prasad. The film would have been made in 20 to 25 crores. It could have done a business of 30 to 35 crores in theaters easily.Directed by Honey Trehan, Raat Akeli has been applauded by the critics and audience in a favourable way. So if it was released in theaters, Public would have loved it but not much. The film seems to be lost our attention after 1 hour 45 minutes but ended in a surprise way. It is a 2 hours 29 minutes long film. The casting is good as we have seen many actors after a long time and I personally loved Ila Arun as Nawaz’s mother.Produced by Ronnie Screwvala, the film also stars Shweta Tripathi, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Shivani Raghuvanshi, Ila Arun and others.Altogether, we can call Raat Akeli Hai a decent hit film that could easily recover its budget. But, we were definitely expecting much more from all Nawazuddin and Radhika Apte movies.What are your thoughts on this news story? Do let us know in the comments.
