Apart from the mirror, what is the plan for the window itself ? I have recently applied the film on my mirror, but I still have water on the window glass. I am currently trying the sprays that I got from Aliexpress, but not able to check much since I have not driven in rains sufficiently.

Rain-X is said to be good. You could try it for the rear glass.

Anti fog films for windows are available on AliExpress. I'm planning to order a set of ORVM and window films

Rain-X is good during the day but at night had noticed the light gets scattered from cars behind.
Maybe due to improper application but had tried out both interior and exterior versions of the same and had the same result.

This is exactly what I was talking about although the accessory guy nearby didn't mention anything about the same for the windows. He had mentioned the cost is about RS 200 for a pair used for the ORVM's. Plan to get the same this week itself.

I have bought it from local shop and initial impressions were good.. so went ahead and ordered a bunch in banggood.in

Well, That was really a bad decision as within 5-8 days of driving in rain, the effect got over and water started to sit on the plastic.

I will post the pictures shortly.
