The film is expected to rake in close to Rs 31 crore over the opening weekend owing to rave reviews and strong word of mouth.

In Raazi, Bhatt play Sehmat, an Indian spy who marries the son of an influential Pakistani army officer. After undergoing rigorous training, she starts leaking details of Pakistan's military strategy to Indian agencies.

While Bhatt plays the indomitable Sehmat with conviction, Kaushal shines as the subdued husband. The film has been appreciated for being its taut screenplay and its handling of human relations and the extent to which they're affected by patriotism, which Bollywood usually struggles to get right.
