Shahrukh Khan always has shown his dark side of acting by doing movies like Darr, Baazigar, Don and others. Now once again Shahrukh Khan is ready to scare you with his new film Raees which is little bit base on the same like of Don. So now let's see will Shahrukh again impress the audience or not. Story The story of the film is based on 80's decade in Gujarat where Raees (Shahrukh Khan) used to live with his Ammi Jaan (Sheeba Chadda), due to bad economic of home, Raees from the school time started attracting towards business. He starts working in an English wine shop as worker alongside by selling country liquor. But after a time Raees wants to open his own business and don't want to work under anyone. For starting the business, Raees needs money so after some ingenious Raees collects the money and starts his business. When the business was going very good that time ACP Majumdar (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) enters in the story. Majumdar wants to stop the business of Raees and also wants to arrest him. After lots of tries, Majumdar failed to arrest Raees. Then the story takes some twist and turns, somehow the film gets its climax. Bollywood Movies 2017 Performances Shahrukh Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui have worked very well in the film and the dialogues delivery between both are very interesting. Both Nawazuddin and Shahrukh are giving tough competition to each other not only in the story but also performance wise. Other actors like Atul Kulkarni, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayubb, and others have worked good in the film. Although Mahira Khan got a great chance in the film but she failed to impress anyone. She was overrated in it. Direction The direction of Rahul Dholakia is brilliant and also the cinematography of K.U. Mohanan is also good. The film doesn't leave a grip from the 80s. Although after the interval, the story looks like little bit boring which could have been better. It would have been good if there is no romance in the film so it will make a total action thriller film. Music The music of the film is average as only two songs Zaalima and Laila Main Laia are hit at the chartbusters. But the background score of the film is good. Why to watch It is totally a treat for the fans who loves to watch Shahrukh Khan is dark shade roles and also for them who are fan of Nawazuddin Siddiqui's power packed performances.
