A film named Razakar has hit the theaters today. Yet Satyanarayan directs it. Let’s see how it is.


India gained independence from the British in 1947, but Hyderabad, the largest princely state, remained an independent state under the control of the Nizam of Hyderabad alias Mir Osman Ali Khan (Markhand Deshpande). The Nizam of Hyderabad refused to sign the accession agreement and opted for a one-year agreement with the Union of India. A paramilitary army force called Razakars, formed by Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, is controlled by Qasim Razvi (Raj Arjun) during that period. Qasim Razvi gives his full support to the Nizam of Hyderabad and they spread terror among the Hindus with their atrocities. What happens later is what Razakar is all about.

Plus points:

If you are one of those people who have not heard about this massacre that took place during the Nizam rule, then you will be shocked after watching the film. The atrocities and forced conversions against many Hindus will send shivers down your spine as they are shown in a heart-wrenching manner without any restraints. There are many difficult moments and one will definitely come out with a heavy heart.

Even if you know about the escapades, you’ll still be invested in the movie, because there are so many details given in the writing. This is the best part of Razakar, as the writing team has done extensive research to document the trauma suffered by many innocent souls. Operation Polo, conducted by the Indian Army to wrest Hyderabad from the Nizam rule, will definitely give you goosebumps.

We have often heard stories describing the greatness of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in uniting the country. This movie will give you more clarity about what kind of role Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel played in making Hyderabad an integral part of India. What the film says is clear. It does not target any religion and it only highlights the atrocities committed by the Nizams and Razakars against the common people.

Raj Arjun is the show stealer of Razakar and he plays the role of Qasim Razvi. We feel like we hit him straight in the face and he has performed at the same level. Markand Deshpande is brilliant as the Nizam of Hyderabad and Tej Sapru is also brilliant as the Iron Man of India. Bobby Simha, Anasuya, Vedhika, Indraja and others gave captivating performances. The second part is more entertaining with many important moments.

Negative Points:

The first part is about the depiction of the brutality of the Razakars against the Hindus and the pace is a bit slow here. Some scenes are repetitive and the story could have been better.

Razakar is a very honestly made film and if anyone expects to be entertained then this film is not for them. Tortures and heinous acts are shown without any restraints and these scenes may deliver for some people.

technical aspects:

Bheems Cecirolio’s music is impressive. Cinematographer Ramesh Kushender has beautifully depicted the anger of the affected people. The producers made a high quality film with a limited budget and are congratulated for their efforts. The VFX were good and the production design team did a great job recreating a bygone era. The set work is fantastic.

Director Yeta Satyanarayan showed conviction in bringing a heinous massacre to the screen. The film is informative, heart-wrenching, and also depicts the bravery of the many unsung heroes fighting against the monarchy. If the director comes up with more such good films then he can go a long way in his career.


Overall, it is an honest portrayal of the heinous massacre that took place in Hyderabad province during the time of Razakar Nizam. This film will definitely shock you with its horrifying facts and neatly documents the plight of common people. This film will blow the minds of those who do not know about the Razakars. The performances are very good and the film is technically rich. The first half is a bit slow, with some repetitive scenes, but the second half holds our attention every minute. Those interested in knowing about history can watch this film this weekend.
