Best Commercial Movie Which Equally Appeals Critics
25 January 2017 | by alisheraz587See all my reviews

"BEST PERFORMANCE EVER" These were my exact words after watching SRK in Raees.How come one beats himself over and over again.When My Name Is Khan came these were exact words of everyone than he did some commercial movies than came Jab Tak Hai Jaan same goes for it "BEST PERFORMANCE EVER" a few more commercial movies than comes FAN and man o man what a performance was that then DEAR ZINDAGI and now RAEES which highlights his best performance till date. Three back to back critically acclaimed performances by Shah Rukh Khan.Just when everyone thought that "HIS TIME IS ENDED-HE CAN'T ACT ANYMORE"That very moment he says "APNA TIME SHURU".I have watched Kaabil too which has Hrithik Roshan who also gives a career best performance but its nothing compared to what Shah Rukh has done.Now back to movie....... Story:Its a story about the rise of a small boy from slums of Gujarat to its elite personalities.As his power grows he comes into sight of Police that's when comes Majmudar(Nawazuddin Siddiqui) who challenges his business and tries to bring him down

Story looks as simple as any other gangster flick but there's more to it than just that.Its a multidimensional story and has many layers attached to it.It doesn't have a single genre.It has high octane action(which will make classic Bollywood fans happy),Romance(For typical SRK fans),Drama(For Nawazzudin fans).Overall it will appeal to everyone. Direction:Director Rahul Dholakia does a great job on this one.His previous works were good but this one will be his career highlight. Acting:I have said already much about SRK's performance and now I will just say he is a scene stealer in this one. Nawazzudin as always does a great job.He has done equally good work if not more than SRK.He is a highlight of the movie. Mahira Khan does a great work on her character as Raees's love interest.This Pakistani actress muted her every hater in India and told everyone with her acting that she is no less than anyone else. Music:Raees has a great album with Laila,Zaalima and Dhingana with Udi Udi Jaye being the chart busters and others are good too.Its theme soundtrack is way more popular in audience than any other movie's.Its really great and energizing. Final Verdict:A movie not to be missed for any reason.You will hate yourself if you missed this one.A great package for everyone.A 10/10 for me and surely you will like it too.
