Jackie Shroff, who seems to be playing the character of an Indian intelligence officer recruits John Abraham’s character and trains him for a mission in Pakistan. The first dialogue in the trailer has Shroff saying “We are on the verge of a war with Pakistan”, something that’s been heavily discussed worldwide throughout the last few days. Next scenes in the trailer show John performing the kind of bloodshed action he is known for. The actor is established as a patriot who is always under watch and has to do something that could change the “course of history for India.”

The trailer further claims that the film is based on real events occurred around the India-Pakistan war of 1971. Directed by Robbie Grewal and produced by Bunty Walia, RAW is slated to release on April 5. The film introduces the lead character as “His dharma was to protect his nation against all evils and enemies. He did so, at the cost of his identity. ”
Earlier, actor Sushant Singh Rajput was on board for the film. However, he stepped out citing ‘unavoidable circumstances’ later. RAW is the third consecutive film by John in which he is seen playing someone who’s ready to die for the country and for whom the feeling of patriotism is paramount. The trailer of RAW seems impressive, especially in the current times when Indians are already united to demand an end of terrorism by the neighbouring country.
