A true story that occurred in 1971, this periodic/espionage thriller by Dharma Productions is about Sehmat, an Indian (Kashmiri) girl who agrees to get married to a Pakistani military officer during the Indo-Pakistan War, in order to spy on the enemy country as per her father’s request. 

The movie stars Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal in lead roles, and is an adaptation of a novel called Calling Sehmat, by Harinder Sikka. As for the music album, it is short and intense, composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and lyrics by Gulzar. 

1. Ae Watan (Male)
Unsurprisingly, the album opens with a lovely patriotic number, in the voice of Arijit Singh. Not quite his domain, but he does a striking job, especially while hitting the high notes. It’s quite refreshing, and sets up the mood for the film and the rest of the album. 

2. Dilbaro
A bidaai track that can leave a married girl pretty teary-eyed. The song definitely has a Kashmiri touch to it, but maybe not enough. The video is very emotional too, and Alia Bhatt looks so beautiful and delicate as a Muslim bride. Personaly, I like this track the most. 

3. Raazi 
Yet another number by Arijit Singh, this one is rather interesting. Love the Kashmiri beats to it, and it is definitely very, very well sung. 

4. Ae Watan (Female)
The album closes with the female version of Ae Watan, this time in the voice of Sunidhi Chauhan. This version, though, is much different from Arijit’s version. This one has children singing in chorus, giving that extra feel. The song concludes with the voices of the children, to give extra impact and a reason to want to watch this film. Both versions have their own charm. 

Honestly, it’s a pretty average album, with nothing really memorable to offer. Especially for the famous trio, this is a bit of a disappointment.
