The year was 1971. East Pakistan was fighting its own intense liberation war, the same war that later gave birth to Bangladesh, an independent country. The same year, then-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi pledged full support to the 'Muktu Yudh' and decided to take part in the war. John Abraham's Romeo Akbar Walter, based on the 1971 war, features the actor as an undercover agent who sets off for a fascinating journey, all for the sake of his motherland.
The trailer of RAW effectively catches a crucial time period in Indian as well as global politics. The first thing that you notice in the trailer is the production value, with which an era has been carefully recreated. The never-seen-before avatar of John to his constant makeovers will have the audience hooked. John dons as many as eight looks in the film, all different than the rest. The hurdles of a secret agent as well as the nuances of war find a place in the right proportion.
In an earlier conversation with Times of India, the actor had revealed that he would play anything from a 26-year-old guy to an 85-year-old man. The film, also starring Mouni Roy, will be released on 12th April, 2019.
