Romeo Akbar Walter is an impressive action thriller that however might not impress die-hard thriller fans, largely because the twists (except a few) and suspenseful moments are pretty much predictable. This doesn't really harm the film since it's gripping and frequently gives up tension and action throughout the duration.

I'd say that the trailers pretty much spoiled the film. After watching the film, I really feel they shouldn't have given some integral parts in the promos because that kills the surprise factor, although the director provides another twist to cover for it. Robbie Grewal has done a decent job but he has added songs too randomly. A film like this doesn't need singing and love tracks even if short.

The first half is gripping and the plotting is excellent. The interval twist is outstanding. That's the one thing I can call truly unpredictable. The second half also goes on to take the conflict further and several scenes are outstanding. I must also mention that the emotional moments are captivating from start to finish and the action sequences are also very impressively staged, most notably the chase that is all over the promos. There is, however, some extreme violence, so be warned. I could already see and hear the audience getting terrified during one such scene.

John Abraham delivers a terrific act. Jackie Shroff also occasionally performs well. Mouni Roy just happens to be there. The villains are menacing and the complex relations between characters are one of the many things this film gets right. The weather depicted throughout the duration makes its presence felt. The climax is also impressive, even though it feels a little stretched.

Romeo Akbar Walter is not the most unique spy film largely because those familiar with movies about espionage won't find it surprising. Still, I liked the film a lot and didn't feel bored or exhausted for even a second. I wanted a dramatic action thriller, and that's what I got. That being said, RAW will not disappoint action fans either. It's really enjoyable and worth watching also due to its interesting espionage theme that appeals to viewers of all ages.

Pros: John Abraham's act, some good twists, visuals and action scenes.
Cons: Predictable thrills, random songs and an occasional slow pace.
The very first scene in Romeo Akbar Walter shows you a bleeding John Abraham being subjected to third-degree in an ISI holding cell in Karachi, and you expect to be thrust into action from the word go. Instead, what you get is a slow-burning spy thriller that takes its own sweet time, and to reach a rather incredulous conclusion after it all. Director Robbie Grewal claims to have picked up the idea for his movie during a conversation in 2012 with his father Major M S Grewal who also served in military intelligence himself. It took seven years for the director to research and bring his vision ....
