Storyline

Set in the 80s in Uttar Pradesh, India, Raid is based on the true story of one of the most high profile raids the country has ever known. Amay Patnaik (Ajay Devgn), an upright and no-nonsense Income Tax officer has already been transferred 49 times in the past seven years owing to his idealistic and courageous disposition to uncover tax frauds, hitting hard the pockets of many a big shot. When Patnaik is assigned the case of Tauji, a highly influential and feared man in Uttar Pradesh, little does he know that his unerring determination to bring Tauji to justice would culminate in the longest and most challenging raid of his career as also the history of the Income Tax Department of India. Would Amay succeed in the face of an increasingly stubborn and belligerent Tauji forms the crux of the story. Written by Indian Gurg

Must watch cinema which is waiting for your Raid in Theaters.
16 March 2018 | by prafullasrivastavSee all my reviews

Direction:

No One Killed Jessica fame Raj Kumar Gupta has done exceptionally brilliant job as a director of period crime thriller. Audience engagement from beginning to climax was the key feature of his movie. His last outing Ghanchakkar created messy life for the audience but this time he bounce back with fresh story with great star casts.

Performance:

Both Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla have delivered the finest performances from different ends. Ajay Devgn has played similar kind of role in Gangajal and Singham where he was fighting against corrupt system. Ileana D'Cruz looks pretty and cute in short role of typical wife of Government officer. Pushpa Joshi(Amma ji), Sheeba Chaddha,Gayathri Iyer, Sulagna Panigrahi and Saanand Verma were also done great job in their roles.



Dialogue and Story:

Ritesh Shah has strengthen two important pillars of this cinema: Dialogue and Story. Dialogues were witty and full of punches. On the delivery of some good dialogue, claps, whistles and shouting are required. Story is inspired from Ramayana e.g. Ravana and Vibhishana concept. Audience got small clues in between but suspense was really tricky one. Inclusion of pain and sufferings of family , friends and spouse where one person is fighting against corrupt system was really made script more robust.



Music:

This was only one area where we can see some improvement required although Rahat Fateh Ali khan was quite impressive in Sanu Ek Pal Chain song. Nit Khair Manga song from Rahat Fateh Ali khan is also good one.

Last Words:

Run for this Raid to watch in cinema halls.
