The trailer of Meghna Gulzar's 'Raazi' is out, and it's absolutely gripping at 2 minutes, 21 seconds. Based on ex-naval officer, Harinder Sikka's novel 'Calling Sehmat', the film highlights the India-Pakistan tension in 1971.

The film revolves around 'Sehmat', a Kashmiri girl, played by Alia Bhatt, who is married to a Pakistani soldier, Vicky Kaushal. Alia's father (Rajit Kapoor) wants his daughter to be India's 'eyes and ears' in Pakistan. A daughter, a spy and a wife are the three roles assigned to Alia, and she portrays them with conviction. She's mysterious, vulnerable and tough in equal measure. Sehmat 'Ek Hindustani pehle hai' and she proves that in the final words in the trailer, 'Watan ke aage kuch nahi... Khud bhi nahi'.

From the innocent girl at the start, to training to be a spy to aiming a gun at her husband in the end, we get to see different shades of her. Does she fall in love towards the end? The emotional turmoil we see leaves us asking for more. 'Raazi' will be on theatre on May 11.
