One line Review: The film depicts the journey of Raees from meagreness to wealth by indulging into an illegal alcohol business.
Positive Points: Shah Rukh Khan is seen performing some breath-taking action stunts and mouthing charming dialogues. SRK’s charm and performance is the soul of the film. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is his usual best. Raees is shot in a realistic setup and backdrop. Also, it is a complete mass entertainer with all the elements of a wholesome Bollywood film!

There is one in particular where standing in front of his superior he looks flummoxed, just about hiding a smile, after he is outsmarted by Raees.More »
Shah Rukh Khan in and as RAEES has finally hit the screens, clad in well stitched pathanis, the all time on screen sawariyaa of many females around the globe has a restricted nazariya (problem in vision), he wears those gold rimmed glasses on his kohled eyes, speaks in that deliberately toned baritone borrowed from Mr. Bachchan's iconic Vijay Chauhan from AGNEEPATH and gets terribly angry when someone calls him battery (a slang used for those who wear specs).More »
