What’s there in this film?.

The story is about the finding of one murderer who killed one highly privileged guy and how the hero tried to dig the truth from the deep.
Honey Trehan, I won’t tell the whole movie is a drag with many unnecessary scenes, you will feel the reality in each scene like how the character reacts to the situation and many. An expertly directed film with good characterisations.
Nawazuddin Siddique carried the whole story on his shoulder as Inspecter Jatil Yadav. Radhika Apte did a good job as Radha.
Shwetha Tripathi done a limited role and there is no that much importance for her role in the story.
Best of this film is storytelling, the nonlinear narrative of the story, made the audience holds the audience with its harmony, though the screenplay goes very slow.
Music by Karan Kulhari supports the plot with its good lyrics, it’s nice to hear in the scenes I think.
Cinematography and sound works are pakka. my thought is there no that flaws to describe except the slow pace.
You will think in every time, like the story comes to an end but after I untying the other knots, it keeps taking off.
We can guess that killer from the starting, the whole story is why he killed and how the hero solved that case, a good investigation thriller.
The director kept eye on each small characters to convey the story in an interesting manner eg.hero’s momma.
What’s not there in this film?.

A solid thriller takes its own good timing to convey.
The only drawback I want to say is the slow screenplay, but that is also needed for the story.
Star performance:

It fits Nawazuddin Siddique.
Because of his remarkable performance as Inspector Jatil Yadav.

I won’t tell the full story,it will seem like a spoiler,so i will tell it shortly.
It starts with the murder of one highly privileged guy named Raghubeer Singh.
The hero was summoned to take that murder case, hero started to dig that case from the bottom, but it was opposed by one current independent MLA and SSP.
After that how hero solved this case,is the storyline of this film Raat Akeli Hai (2020).

A good mystery thriller and skillful piece of work,try not to miss.

Raat Akeli Hai (2020) movie rating:

3.75/5 – Good,try not to miss (by Movie Laundry)
