The story as we all know is set in the backdrop of 1980’s Gujarat. It dwells on the life of a man called Raees (Shah Rukh Khan) who wants to make it big. His life has a simple funda which is based on his mother’s teaching: ‘Koi bhi dhandha
chota nahi hota’. The movie explores the ris and fall of Raees who builds up an empire from the scratch. His philosophy in business makes him the most feared man in the state of Gujarat. Soon, situations take a drastic turn with the entry of Majmudar (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), who is on a spree to end Raees’s raj. The film revolves around the epic clash between the two.
Raees starts off from Raees’ childhood to his adulthood to his violent yet warmth upbringing. Meanwhile this menacing Raees also has his love interest played by Pakistani beauty Mahira Khan.Raees has a golden heart and an impeccable business sense that helps him rise.
We have seen Shah Rukh Khan do wonderful roles in the past and this one is definitely an add-on to that list. Miyan Bhai SRK stole the thunder with his power packed performance. He has nailed it this time. Last time in Fan and now in Raees SRK has shown and proved ” Form is temporary, Class is permanent ”
Come to Nawaz bhai , He has too done full on justice to his role as Inspector Mujumdar.
I’d mention his entry scene. It has been shot as well as acted perfectly and outstandingly.
Mahira looks beautiful , and has a little to do which she did nicely. Zeeshan and Atul both made their presence felt.
What’s Good :
Shah Rukh Khan and Nawazuddin ‘s bravura performances, Action sequences, Well researched script, Music, Screenplay , Editing, and Climax
What’s Bad : Nothing really (as people get what they expect from Raees ) but still if I have to say something then Film gets slow for sometime in second half but it picks up later. So it hardly matters.
On the whole , Raees is a full on Masala Entertainer packed by power full performances and adrenaline charged action sequences. Made for Classes and masses alike. Action , Acting, Romance, Violence, Music and Masaledar dialogues all add up to the genre.Taking in consideration the Clash with another solid film kaabil , Raees may find it hard to hit to the fullest but it will be a sure shot Block Buster and may take big lead over kaabil.
I’m going with 4 stars out of 5 ! Highly recommended !
