Rautu Ka Raaz Review, A Slow-Burning Mystery.

Rautu Ka Raaz Review:

In the tranquil town of Rautu Ki Beli, life unfolds leisurely. But when the warden of a blind school, Sangeeta (Narayani Shastri), dies under mysterious circumstances, the calm is shattered. Initially dismissed as a natural death, suspicions soon arise that foul play may be afoot.

Enter SHO Deepak Negi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and his team. Their laid-back investigation style adds a unique flavour to the unfolding mystery. Director Anand Surapur and co-writer Shariq Patel craft a tale that thrives on simplicity. The deliberately lazy tone creates a slow-paced atmosphere, immersing viewers in the everyday life of the small village.
The film’s charm lies in its ability to keep us engaged until the truth is finally revealed. The subplot involving blind students Rajat (Pratham Rathod) and Diya (Drishti Gaba) adds emotional depth. Their struggles and talents are woven seamlessly into the narrative, enhancing the setting and context.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui shines as SHO Deepak Negi, a police officer grappling with post-traumatic stress disorder. His portrayal, reminiscent of Pankaj Tripathi’s character in ‘Murder Mubarak,’ adds intrigue. Rajesh Kumar as Sub-inspector Naresh Dimri complements Siddiqui’s performance, even if their overly casual approach can be frustrating at times.

Atul Tiwari as Manoj Kesari, the school’s trustee, and Narayani Shastri as the strict warden Sangeeta deliver convincing performances. The picturesque mountains and woods of the small-town setting enhance the film’s atmosphere, thanks to Sayak Bhattacharya’s cinematography.

Rautu Ka Raaz may not be a taut thriller, but its simplicity and intriguing plot make it a one-time watch. So, if you’re in the mood for a slow-burning mystery, give this film a shot.
