In his review for NDTV, film critic Raja Sen gave Raazi 3 stars out of 5 and wrote: "Raazi, based on Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehmat, is about the daughter of a spy strategically turned into the daughter-in-law of an opposing spy, and Meghna Gulzar keeps the storytelling cut and dry, draining the film of jingoism as she lets the young girl go about her work."
The Meghna Gulzar-directed film has also found "acceptance" in the overseas market and the opening weekend total has been Rs. 13.72 crore.
