Ratings:3/5 Review By:Rajeev Masand Site:CNNNews 18
If you’ve ever wondered what the love child of a staunchly realistic filmmaker and Bollywood’s most unabashedly populist star might resemble, you’re looking at it. As a throwback to those thrilling gangster films from the 70s, many starring Amitabh Bachchan and scripted by Salim-Javed, Raees delivers ample bang for your buck. I’m going with three out of five.

On the whole, RAEES is a sure-shot hit. To state that SRK is sensational would be an understatement. The love, adulation and stardom that he attained in his early films will be showered on him yet again in RAEES. A few more factors contribute too: Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s winning act, the aimed-at-masses written material and of course, the gripping finale. As far as the BO is concerned, there’s no stopping this one. An outright winner. Just don’t miss it!

On the whole, Raees will turn out to be a comfortable winner at the ticket windows. Despite a routine story, it has a lot of masala for the audience to keep them satisfied. Business in the first five-day weekend will be phenomenal. Single-screen cinemas will see surging crowds of the kind not seen too often these days.

The trouble is that Rahul is trying to create a gritty crime drama but he is also upholding the myth of the superstar Shah Rukh Khan. So the character must walk a tightrope and somehow be a noble badassThe best way to enjoy Raees then is to manage expectations first. This is an uneven film. In places, you will applaud and whistle. But you might also find yourself utterly exhausted. Still, as the girl in Dangal so memorably put it: Shah Rukh ko na nahi bolte. Paap lagta hai.

Harking back to the days of the anti-hero of the pre-Shah Rukh Khan era, Raees is a gangster saga with a contemporary spin. It takes recourse to subtle sleights of new-age style to compensate for what it lacks in terms of thematic essence and narrative pace. It makes a fair fist of the palpably onerous task. Shah Rukh shrugs off his defining starry mannerisms, embraces physical attributes and accessories designed to convey an air of to-hell-with-the-world insouciance, and becomes an effective anchor for a film that hinges overly on his box office clout to carry it across the finishing line.

It is a story whose denouement is clear almost as soon the film rolls, and yet, if you sit through the film it is only to see the superstar play a character he has never done. So fatally flawed that even the redeeming features are not enough. It sure is a very bold Shah Rukh Khan who has stepped out of his comfort zone. Will the audience do so, too?

Shah Rukh Khan returns in and as Raees , a golden hearted mobster who does bad things for a good cause. It is a role constructed to grab back his pole position, and to that end Shah Rukh Khan strains at fulfilling every single point of the In and As trope. He sings and dances, he fights and romances: he also tries to fulfil the outlines of a character. And that’s where the film gets stuck, between the two stools of restraint and full blown tamasha

Raees is a typical ’80s potboiler. Disturbingly, like commercial cinema from that period, the moral compass is a bit off Yet, the problem is fundamental: the writing is shoddy and unoriginal. And by the time it wades into certain true events, it is left with too little time and meaning. Raees perhaps works only as an SRK showcase. But we’ve seen many of those already.

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By:Nihit Bhave Site:Times Of India
The first half is well-paced; it draws you in and makes you root for the bootlegger; Majmudar’s one-liners and the music whet your appetite and the Laila Main Laila sequence ups the ante. But the second half plunges into a weird Robin Hood zone where the antihero’s morals are suddenly defibrillated and he becomes a messiah. The movie takes a rough path there on, and the long runtime makes the ride bumpier. The movie can feel a bit long, but if you’re going for a great Shah Rukh performance and some good ol’ popcorn-entertainment, it might just ‘raees’ to the occasion.

The key element to Raees’ story is to keep the audience hooked and it pretty much works here. The film shifts from politics, to romance and action seamlessly, thus keeping a Bollywood fan entertained. Raees is a paisa-wasool entertainer for massy Bollywood fans! A 3.5/5 for this one.Raees is certainly a one-time watch. With Shah Rukh Khan in lead, many may not need me telling them to watch it. Also, Nawaz is a complete show-stealer here!

Full of tightly-choreographed action sequences and a brilliantly written script, Raees finally marks the beginning of good movies in 2017. While the ending might seem a bit stretched to some audiences, Shahrukh will still manage to pull at your heart-strings.For those caught in the dilemma of whether to see Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil or this film first, we would recommend booking your tickets (if theatres aren’t already full) for Raees.

'Raees' is certainly a one time watch but don't expect the unexpected at all. If you are seeking a plot with enough twists then you will be disappointed. It’s just the run-of-the-mill ‘chor-police’ chase, which you must have seen infinite times in the past. Strongly recommended for Shah Rukh Khan fans.

Raees Story:  

RAEES is the fictitious story of a man named Raees, set in early 1980's to 1990's Gujarat, India. The film explores how Raees' relationships and meteoric rise helped him build an entire empire from scratch, to make him the single most powerful man in the state. Less of a gangster but more of an impresario, Raees gains popularity, a cult following and most importantly the public's trust by demonstrating entrepreneurial flair, unfettered determination to achieving his goals and ironically a heart of gold. His layered character traits encapsulate an inimitable blend of personas, making him revered, loved and feared. Always thinking ahead of the curve and using revolutionary ideas of management which were unheard of during his time, but are now doctrines for students, Raees eliminates every opposition that comes his way. However, his downfall will be crossing paths with the no-nonsense police officer Majumdar, whose sole reason for existence is the elimination of crime. What ensues next is a tumultuous battle between the two, which forms a key defining element of the film's narrative.

  1. Raees Movie Review- While Making a Curry if All the Masala or Spices are in Added & in Equal Proportion Makes it Very Tasty Same Thing has Happened here All The Cinematic Spices Such As Crime,Thrill,Romance,Action,Humuor, is Added in A Perfect Manner & Makes Raees Tasty or So Delightful to Watch Also Curry Has to be baked properly Same happened In Raees Which is Edited & Directed Perfectly Which will give it a Repeat Audience,SRK is again in Action Avtar for his Fans & Apart From his Acting To Nawaz or their Chemistry or Atul's Acting in Every Department Raees Shine's,Now Box Office Value it will Score Double Hundred ,Should go furthur But Competition With Kaabil So Less Screens Plus on 10th Feb Jolly LLB 2 is Coming so Doesn't have much Business Days SO Less Screens & 15 Days to perform Whle in Dangal Got no Competition till 30 Days,Now Competition with Raees & kaabil Both are Very Good Movies But if You want masala Entertainment go for Raess & if You want Dark Quality Cinema Like Critic Go For Kaabil, I choose Raees ,So Try Raees Cuz "AAJ SE APNA TIME SHURU"

    2. It will..a mass masala entertainer is more normal/neutral audience pleasing than an emotional movie..Here SRK's presence also makes it big among both masses and classes..Clash may be neck to neck but Raees will edge past kaabil at BO.

  7. Positive to mixed response for a mass masala movie is understandable..Tight revieweers like koimoi and firstspot gave 3.5 and 4 rating..So there must be something exciting in this movie.. A mass masala entertainer is more normal/neutral audience pleasing than an emotional movie..Here SRK's presence also makes it big among both masses and classes..Kaabil also got +ve reviews..So clash may be neck to neck but Raees will edge past kaabil at BO owing to more normal audience pleasing content and presence of Shahrukh as the lead actor.

  14. रईस:
    सत्तर का सिनेमा+नब्बे का शाहरुख़= मसालेदार मनोरंजन [3/5]

    1975 में; सलीम-जावेद की ‘दीवार’ जनवरी महीने के ठीक इसी हफ्ते सिनेमाघरों में रिलीज़ हुई थी. 42 साल बाद, राहुल ढोलकिया की ‘रईस’ अगर इतिहास दोहरा नहीं रही, तो कम से कम ‘दीवार’ के साथ हिंदी फिल्मों में नायक के बदलते हाव-भाव और ताव को एक बार फिर उसी जोश-ओ-जूनून से परदे पर जिंदा करने की कोशिश तो पूरी शिद्दत से करती ही है. फिल्म का टाइटल-डिजाईन हो, कहानी के जाने-पहचाने उतार-चढ़ाव हों, नायक के तौर-तरीके, सिस्टम के साथ उसकी उठा-पटक या फिर फिल्म के निर्माण में फरहान अख्तर (जावेद साब के बेटे) की बेहद ख़ास भूमिका; ‘रईस’ में कुछ भी इत्तेफ़ाक नहीं लगता. ‘रईस’ हिंदी फ़िल्म इतिहास के सबसे बाग़ी और जोशीले ’70 के दशक का जश्न कुछ इस ज़ोर-शोर से मनाती है, लगता है जैसे सिनेमा का मौजूदा पर्दा भी 70mm की तरह ही फैलने-खुलने लगा है.

    ‘दीवार’ अगर मुंबई अंडरवर्ल्ड के सबसे नामी तस्कर हाजी मस्तान की जिंदगी से अपनी कहानी चुनती है, तो ‘रईस’ गुजरात के अवैध शराब माफिया अब्दुल लतीफ़ के किस्सों के आस-पास ही अपनी जमीन तलाशती है. हालाँकि दोनों ही फिल्में विवादों से बचने के लिए ‘काल्पनिक’ होने की सुविधा का भरपूर लाभ उठाती हैं. गुजरात में शराब पर पाबन्दी है, और ‘पाबन्दी ही बग़ावत की शुरुआत होती है’. कोई धंधा छोटा नहीं होता और धंधे से बड़ा कोई धर्म नहीं. इसी फलसफे पर चलते-चलते, रईस हुसैन (शाहरुख़ खान) शराब की तस्करी के धंधे में आज सबसे बड़ा नाम है. कानून अब तक तो उसकी जेब में ही था, पर जब से ये कड़क और ईमानदार अफसर मजमूदार (नवाज़ुद्दीन सिद्दीक़ी) आया है, माहौल में गर्मी थोड़ी बढ़ गयी है. मजमूदार रईस की गर्दन तक पहुँचने का कोई भी मौका छोड़ना नहीं चाहता, पर रईस हर बार अपने ‘बनिए के दिमाग और मियाँ भाई की डेरिंग’ के इस्तेमाल से बचता-बचाता आ रहा है. चूहे-बिल्ली की इस दौड़ में यूँ तो किसी की भी चाल, कोई भी दांव इतना रोमांचक नहीं होता कि आप जोश-ओ-ख़रोश में सीट से ही उछल पड़ें, पर दोनों किरदारों की कभी ढीली न पड़ने वाली अकड़, लाजवाब एक्शन और वजनदार संवादों के जरिये हर बार आपको लुभाती रहती है.

    ‘रईस’ का रेट्रो लुक फिल्म की साधारण कहानी पर किसी भी पल भारी पड़ता है. जमीन से उठकर अंडरवर्ल्ड सरगना बनने का सफ़र, और फिर गरीबों का मसीहा बनकर राजनीति में उतरने का दांव; फिल्म की कहानी में ऐसे उतार-चढ़ाव कम ही हैं, जो आपने देखे-सुने न हों. इतना ही नहीं, ठहरी हुई शुरुआत और सुलझे हुए अंत के दरमियान, फिल्म कुछ इस रफ़्तार से भागने लगती है कि आपके लिए ‘क्या छोड़ें-क्या पकड़ें’ वाली दुविधा पैदा हो जाती है. फिल्म ’70 के दशक में जाने के उतावलेपन में गुजरे ज़माने की खामियों को भी उसी बेसब्री से अपना लेती है, जितनी शिद्दत से उस दौर की काबिल-ऐ-तारीफ़ अच्छाइयां. नायिका (माहिरा खान) को बड़ी समझदारी और सहूलियत से कहानी में किसी खूबसूरत ‘प्रॉप’ की तरह लाया और ले जाया जाता है. गाने के दौरान ही शादियाँ हो जाती हैं, गाने के दौरान ही बच्चे भी और गानों की आड़ में ही दुश्मनों का सफाया!

    ‘स्टारडम’ के पीछे दुम हिलाती फिल्मों से हम कितने पक और थक गए हैं, इसकी सबसे ताज़ा मिसाल है ‘रईस’. भले ही औसत दर्जे की कहानी के साथ ही सही, पर परदे पर शाहरुख़ की शानदार शख्सियत को एक जानदार किरदार के तौर पर पेश करने की पहल भर से ही ‘रईस’ अपने नंबर बखूबी बटोर लेती है. पहले ‘फैन’, फिर ‘डियर जिंदगी’ और अब ‘रईस’; शाहरुख़ किसी नौसिखिये की तरह परदे पर अपनी एक बनी-बनाई ‘इमेज’ को तोड़ कर नये सांचे में ढलने की खूब कोशिश कर रहे हैं. ये आज के लिए भी अच्छा है और आने वाले कल के लिए भी. नवाज़ुद्दीन बेख़ौफ़ हवा की तरह हैं, बहते हैं तो देखते भी नहीं कि आगे कौन है, क्या है? परदे पर वो हीरो की तरह स्लो-मोशन में भले ही एंट्री न लेते हों, मार-धाड़ भी न के बराबर ही करते हैं, फिर भी तालियाँ उनके हिस्से में जैसे पहले से ही लिख-लिखा के आई हों. मोहम्मद जीशान अय्यूब पूरी मुस्तैदी से फिल्म के सबसे ठन्डे फ्रेम को भी अपनी अदाकारी से गर्म रखते हैं, चाहे फिर उनके पास देने को ‘रिएक्शन’ के चंद ‘एक्सप्रेशंस’ ही क्यूँ न हों.

    आखिर में, राहुल ढोलकिया भले ही तमाम राजनीतिक सन्दर्भों (मुंबई ब्लास्ट, हिन्दू-मुस्लिम दंगे, गोधरा-कांड) को इशारों-इशारों में पिरो कर फिल्म को एक माकूल जमीन देने की कोशिश करते हों, ‘रईस’ रहती तो एक मसाला फिल्म ही है, जिसके लिये मनोरंजन का बहुत कुछ दारोमदार सत्तर के दशक के सिनेमा और नब्बे के दशक के शाहरुख़ पर टिका दिखाई देता है. अब इससे खतरनाक मेल और क्या होगा? [3/5]
