Raees is another masterpiece after Fan and Dear Zindagi
Raees is an excellent and engaging movie. What's good: Gripping script, Masterclass performances of Srk and Nawaz, Excellent Direction, Excellent Dialogues, Action, Great music, Excellent cinematography, use of eyes instead of dialogue in many scenes. What's bad: Actually nothing. But Zaalima song is unnecessary. Verdict: Raees is an exceptional movie. It is a commercial potboiler but not senseless. Rahul Dholakia has proved his skill again. Srk again gives his one of career best performances in Raees. For the climax scene, he should get Oscar. What an acting! Nawazudding again shows why he is called an excellent actor.
