Romeo Akbar Walter (RAW), directed by Robbie Grewal, depicts a politically tense India. Battling crumbling international relations with neighbouring Pakistan, India is seen investing in intelligence agents. John Abraham is recruited as an Indian spy who goes on to serve the Pakistan army. The film, also featuring Mouni Roy, Jackie Shroff, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and Sikander Kher, is essentially a thrilling cat-and-mouse chase as many try to unveil Abraham's true identity in the film.
