Raman Raghav 2.0 is a 2016 Indian psychological thriller film directed by Anurag Kashyap. It is based on the notorious serial killer Raman Raghav who operated in Mumbai during the mid-1960s. Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the role of Raman, a psychopathic serial killer, while Vicky Kaushal plays Raghav, a cop assigned to investigate the serial kllings.The film premiered at the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight to a positive critical reception, raising hopes of a good showing at the box office


The pivot of the film is the portrait of the serial killer. The creature of Mumbai mythology and folklore is brought alive with added shades of the dark and the menacing in this brand new avatar. Glowing cat eyes, a scar running down his forehead, at times wearing his own sister’s earrings, humming “aadmi musafir hai” and moving around with an iron car-jack in hand, scouting furtively for victims, hiding in slush and rising up nonchalantly from it plastered with muck. Nawaz is brilliantly frantic and frenzied as the cold hearted, demented, voyeuristic pervert. Like the best of killers his depravity is built on his individual philosophy: that he has a wireless access to God, that he is the messenger of Yamraj who is telling him to pick people up and kill them. For him killing in the name of nation or religion is just not as evolved as killing purely for the heck of killing which is what he is himself practising. Nawaz packs in such a brute force in his lean frame and mean presence that everyone else gets automatically shoved to the periphery. Sitting on his knees, looking up at the cop in the balcony—with one unwavering look he sends a chill down the spine. But, despite Nawaz’s overpowering presence Vicky stands in good stead as a reckless, trigger happy, drug-addled cop keeling dangerously close to Ramanna’s side of darkness.
