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.

    Baadshaho Movie Review

    Baadshaho manages to impress during the first half because of the star cast and the suspence that has been kept under wraps. Though the film dips down, it picks up immediately and the songs have been shot well. The action episodes and the locations have been grand. The first half builds all the needed momentum so that the audience eagerly wait for the second half. The second half of the film is a sheer disappointment and it offers nothing for the audience. The entire star cast have been wasted utterly. Most of the episodes have been stretched too much and the climax looks completely fake. On the whole the second half is the complete reason for the movie's massive debacle.

    Bareilly Ki Barfi Movie Review

    Bareilly Ki Barfi has been inspired from a French novel 'Ingredients of Love'. The movie has been adopted as per the nativity of Uttar Pradesh. The first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi has been entertaining however most of the episodes look dragged and some of them spotted unnecessary. The performances by the lead actors and the songs have been decent which makes the first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi passable. The second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi struggles as the director misses the major plot. Focused much on unwanted issues, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi is an utter disappointment. Once again, the lead actors top the show and it is the entertainment which makes the film sound decent at times. The climax looks simple and on the whole, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi fails to live up the expectations.

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Movie Review

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha starts on a slow note as it takes enough time to reveal about the behavior of the characters. The first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been packed with hilarious entertainment which come along with the plot. Some of the songs have been forcefully injected into the plot however some of them have been shot well. On the whole, the first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha looks decent with packed entertainment. The second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha too has been interesting and reveals a strong social message. Some of the episodes have been dragged too much and the songs are huge barriers for the film. The film has many interesting episodes which strike hard about the problems faced by women across many villages of the country. On the whole the second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been ok which has been balanced with good and bad episodes throughout.
