This my honest review of what I felt of the Movie Raees:
First of all, I only have watched 2 Hindi Movies (one being Dangal and another being Raees). Never had the interest in watching Bollywood movies, but for some reasons these two movies got my attention, mainly because of their fabulous trailers that were trending in Canada.
Raees is a movie portrayed around the 80s and 90s, an era in which bootlegging was big. The movie shows a the growth of a man named "Raees" from his young childhood all the way to adulthood. He gains supremacy in the land and he is control of everything. During this time he meets his wife and also a honest policeman. The policeman is not corrupted as the others and his main mission is to bring down Raees. To figure out who wins and what happens next watch the movie!
Story/Acting: Lets understand that this is a entertainment movie, you should not expect a Oscar movie such as Lion (which also is a great move), so the story is good, however its not great. Nevertheless the story keeps you guessing and it is very intriguing. The dialogues (whatever I read in the subtitles) were really strong. In terms of acting the guy who played Raees was really good, I think if he gets a chance he should come over to Hollywood and be in a movie in which the directors can really use his skills. The policeman acting was great as well, his scenes with Raees was awesome. The rest of the cast was OK, they were honest to their roles.
I also had a chance reading all the IMDb reviews of Raees, some seemed fake to me (doesn't feel like they watched the movie), so I suggest go out and watch this movie at least once. If a Canadian guy like me can watch this movie then I don't know whats stopping you
