Lyrics and Music

The four songs of the movie ‘Dilbaro’, ‘Ae Watan’, ‘Raazi’, and ‘Ae Watan’ (Female) are very good. For ‘A Watan’, the music director Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has joined hands with the legendary songwriter Gulzar and with his voice made it more beautiful. The song ‘Dilbaro’, filmed on the daughter’s farewell, is very close to the emotional relationship of a father-daughter. The title track of the film, ‘Raji’ shows the journey till Alia becomes a detective.

  1. The film is admirable also because it’s a measured, mostly intelligent thriller that asks us to consider concepts of patriotism and honor without spoon-feeding us with manipulative background music or provocative dialogue.
