Raat Akeli Hai (Hindi): Raat Akeli Hai is a whodunit crime drama starring the talented Nawazuddin Siddique as the investigating cop.
Directed by Honey Trehan it is a fairly engaging crime drama that has a Hitchcockian vibe to it. It is unnecessarily bloated in the middle, but makes up for it with a satisfactory ending.
The setting is reminiscent of Daniel Kraig’s Knives Out where a murder takes place and every member of the family is a suspect.
Raat Akeli Hai is one of the few decent films to come out during the past few months.
