It was a few days ago that the makers of John Abraham's Romeo Akbar Walter released the trailer of the film. John plays an agent in the movie and the trailer gave us a hint that his character goes to the neighbouring country for a mission. The trailer explicitly reminded us of Alia Bhatt's Raazi. Now, the makers of the film have released the first track titled Vande Mataram. The song is composed and written by Shabbir Ahmed.
It has some really good music with amazing lyrics which have patriotism written all over it. The track is sung by Sonu Nigam and his voice takes the song a notch higher. Ekta Kapoor's voice supports well. Just like the trailer, the video of Vande Mataram also reminds us of Raazi. We get to see a few scenes in which John is being trained for being and that will take you back to Alia’s training in Raazi. Alia’s performance was the highlight of Raazi and, in Romeo Akbar Walter, John’s performance seems to be something to look forward to.
Directed by Robbie Grewal, Romeo Akbar Walter also stars Mouni Roy and Jackie Shroff. The movie is slated to release on April 5, 2019. Talking about the movie John at the trailer launch said, "It's very important to make films with good stories. If tomorrow, there's a great patriotic film, I would love to do it. But I would not like to do jingoistic films. I am not anti any other country, I am not anti any other religion.”
"It's a very objective film. No one is bad or good in this, it's just how you look at things. We are not depicting any other side as the bad side. It's not jingoistic, typical flag saluting film. It's very different and that's why we are proud to be associated with it," the actor added.
