Raat Akeli Hai Movie Review: Raat Akeli Hai movie certainly the best crime thriller released on OTT platform till date. Nawazuddin Siddiqui has put another brilliant performance here. His character of sub-inspector Jatil Yadav was simply the show stealer. His name was actually Jatin but while doing the form fill up for board exam one mistake has changed it from Jatin to Jatil. He gets rejection from many girls due to his dark complexion. He uses fairness cream daily hiding it from her mother. He used to get involved into fight with his mother played by Ila Arun regarding his marriage.

The film started with two brutal murders thereafter Raghubeer Singh played by Khalid Tyabji was killed on the day of his second marriage with Radha played by Radhika Apte. Raghubeer Singh’s family was not a united one and they rarely trust each other. 
With the progress of investigation Jatil Yadav came to know that Radha had an affair with Vikram played by Nishant Dahiya who is Raghubeer’s nephew.

Raghubeer Singhs’ family friend MLA Munna Raja played by Aditya Srivastava was not happy with Jatil Yadav’s investigation as he was getting close to find the killers. MLA Munna Raja informed this to Jatil Yadav through Jatil’s boss Lalji Shukla played by Tigmanshu Dhulia. After few interactions with maid Jatil was sure that the maid knew some secrets but later she was also killed. Rest of the story went through how Jatil successfully found the real killer of Raghubeer Singh.

Talking about the performances it was a top-notch performance from Nawazuddin Siddiqui, his role of a sincere and responsible cop will keep you in hunt for the truth. Radhika Apte has also done a very good job here. Overall we can say it was a complete team effort from every department that has resulted in such a masterpiece.
