Official trailer:

Romeo Akbar Walter is informative and just like any update from the history. The narration is all about bravery, the makers could have executed it well.

The film is not like Uri: The Surgical Strike or Parmanu! The narration explains the emergence of Bangladesh and how the situations were there during the Indo-Pak war of 1971. After a few scenes giving information, we see an old man reciting a Shayari in a gathering. One can see, it is John Abraham (Romeo here). Romeo works in a bank in Delhi, from where he’s picked by the chief of Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW) – Srikanth Rai (Jackie Shroff).

Romeo becomes Akbar Malik as he’s sent to Pakistan for an undercover mission. He sends intel about a certain Isaq Afridi (Anil George) and the team with him. While there is some confusion, Srikanth with the use of Romeo/Akbar’s information dodges a lethal attack back in India. It’s all about how Romeo is about to manage and stay afloat despite getting noticed by Pakistan police.

Romeo Akbar Walter has John Abraham deliver a good performance. As usual, he does exceedingly well in the physically loud sequences but still requires work on the emotional ones. His last few films (Satyameva Jayate and Parmanu), has appealed to the masses and the scripts are good too. Jackie Shroff is seen as the character of Srikanth Rai. He looks good as a Chief of R&AW. Mouni Roy plays a character that does not have any scope to grow. She has a is good at the screentime she has. Sikander Kher does exceptionally well as Colonel Khan, he looks his character and his mannerism is like one.

Romeo Akbar Walter has Hanif Shaikh’s background score that picks up certain scenes.

Romeo Akbar Walter could have been better than what it is now. The plot and narration is average.

Romeo Akbar Walter Movie releases on 05th April 2019.
