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.
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.
Raees Final Word
SRK is back with an out and out mass masala entertainer with Raees. A perfect treat for fans and the film will end up as a huge money spinner at the box-office for sure.
