Story

Raees (Shah Rukh Khan) is one of the most talented youngsters who gets attracted to the liquor trade in the dry state of Gujarat. He works for a popular liquor smuggler (Atul Kulkarni) during his early age after which he decides to step out starting on his own. Soon he becomes the talk of the state and SP Jaideep Ambalal Majmudar (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) keeps him in track. The rest of the film is how Raees attempts to play smart overcoming the tricks of Majmudar. Watch Raees to know about the rest.

The first half of Raees has been extremely perfect and starts off explaining the character of Raees. Each and everything has been taken huge care. The film shifts from action to romance and then to politics without any flaws which will sure entertain the audience of all the classes. The interval episodes make the film quite interesting and the songs have been shot extremely well. On the whole the first half is a package of perfect commercial drama.

The second half turns dull at parts and it dips down however the film picks up again at the much needed time. The dose of action reaches the peaks during the second half and the dialogues in the film have been well written and should be mentioned specially. Once again the songs have been extremely well shot and placed well. The climax looks dragged however the second half of Raees makes a perfect watch.

Performance :

Shah Rukh Khan has been extremely stupendous in the role of Raees. He excelled in the role especially in the emotional episodes. He has been romantic, fearless and ruggish throughout the film and delivered out his best. Mahira Khan has been limited completely and she even had no scope to perform. She has been decent in some of the episodes but emotionally poor. Nawazuddin Siddiqui once again steals the show with his stupendous performance throughout. He is fun to watch and is one of the highlights of the film. All the other actors have been decent.

The story of the film has been decent and the screenplay, dialogues have been penned well. The cinematography has been top notch and the erected sets reveal about the Gujarati culture. The songs and the background score are one of the major highlights of Raees. The production values looked extremely lavish and Rahul Dholakia has been extremely successful in carving out an out and out commercial entertainer.

Final Word

Raees is an out and out commercial entertainer that can be given a shot this weekend for the extremely stupendous performances of Shah Rukh Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

    Ittefaq Movie Review

    The first half of Ittefaq has been well framed and is perfectly narrated. The film has been tight and racy right from the first shot and is a treat to watch. You will be deceived with each twist that comes in the film. The performaces need a bow and the entire first half has been extremely interesting. The second half too has been well maintained and is captured well. The director made sure that the film is not deviated at any frame and is equally thrilling and entertaining. The climax is hard hitting that one will be left boggled. On the whole Ittefaq is a film that should not be missed.

    Golmaal Again Movie Review

    Golmaal Again has been focussed mostly on entertainment which has been laced with horrifying episodes. The film is not a comedy unlike the previous installments of Golmaal and is laced with loads of horror. The songs have been shot well and the first half of Golmaal Again looks decent with enough dose of entertainment. The second half of Golmaal Again dips down though it has dose of entertainment. Some of the episodes have been repeated and have been taken from the previous installments. Some of the episodes fail to make any impact however the climax of the film has been thoroughly engaging. On the whole, the second half of Golmaal Again is a disappoinment but manages to sail finally.

    Secret Superstar Movie Review

    Secret Superstar starts on an interesting note and it explains all the small and interesting aspects of the lead characters.

    Judwaa 2 Movie Review

    Judwaa 2 has been promising and entertaining right from the first frame. Varun Dhawan carried the entire film on his shoulders and he is a treat to watch. He excelled completely in the comic scenes and Judwaa 2 is his best film till date. Though the plot has been completely predictable, it is the entertainment, action and the songs which leave the audience entertaining. The first half of Judwaa 2 has been decent and lives up the expectations. The second half of Judwaa 2 too stands decent because of the entertainment levels. All the characters have been recreated from the original and not much homework has been done. The makers have been completely focused on the entertainment and the glamour. The songs have been shot well and they come at the right time in the film. The climax has been quite appealing and on the whole the second half too is a passable ride completely.
