Story of RAW (Romeo Akbar Walter)-Bollywood Movie:
The film is made by inspiring on the true-life story of Kaushik who was only 21 when he was spotted by the RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) officials at a national level dramatic meet, who approached him to work as an undercover agent in Pakistan. In the next two years, Kaushik was given an intense training where he learned the deadly tradecraft of modern-day spies. During this training, which was both mentally and physically straining, Kaushik learned Urdu and got well-versed in the Muslim religion. At a young age of 23, Kaushik, with a new identity and a new name – Nabi Ahmed Shakir – was sent to Pakistan for one of the greatest espionage missions of India. In Pakistan, Kaushik secured admission to Karachi University where he began studying law. After that Kaushik joined the Pakistani Army and moved up and became a Major. While leading the life of a Pakistani national, Kaushik kept sending classified information to RAW. For his unmatched dedication towards serving his motherland, the then Home Minister of India, S.B Chavan, gave him the title of ‘Black Tiger‘.
When Inayat Mashi caught by Pakistani intelligence, she also revealed all the information about the operation besides revealing the true identity of Ravindra Kaushik. Kaushik got arrested by Pakistan and spent the next 16 years of his life in different jails in several Pakistani cities. Even worse was the fact that the Indian government refused to own him. Such is the life of a spy working for his country. They’re the unsung heroes who never get their due, or better yet, they perhaps don’t even work for the dues. Kaushik’s untold story has inspired many movies over the years, most recently to be reprised by John Abraham in Romeo Akbar Walter.
When John Abraham, the stunner of Action movies acted in trio-roles in this movie, the audience would be uncontrollable. The Action thriller with first initials as RAW has a plot based on espionage in Pakistan. The movie is full of twists and turns and does not fail to surprise us, but at the same time seems complex. At the same time, Alia Bhatt’s “Raazi” film makes a soft corner on the audience’s heart, so the RAW lacked certain points to reach that.
