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

A captivating crime thriller with enuff tension n suspense. Devgan was terrific n so were the dialogues.
Saw this in a theatre. The plot is about an honest n brave income tax officer who conducts a raid at a very powerful man's house. As a fan of Devgan, i went to see this without watching the trailer or reading any reviews.
It is a very mesmerizing film with solid tension n suspense throughout. Apart from awesome acting by Devgan n Shukla, the best part was the editing. U dont feel bore for even a sec. The climax reminded me of a zombie film where hordes of angry mob have surrounded people who are inside a house n anytime the mob can barge into. The background song during the climax was good too n so was the mild twist.
Two things bothered me, first the romantic song n second, during the end scene it takes the mob a helluva time to break n barge into the room even after the door being wooden n glass one whereas.......
Still i loved the film n Devgan was terrific. His HMT watch was awesome.
