Nice movie, But with some flaw
28 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

First of all let me tell you, I used to be a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan but after this movie, my love for him is decreased.

The biggest failing of the film is the story. There is talk of how Raees takes you back to the Bachchan era of the 80s. This is bizarre because Bachchan played a hero in each one of those films. In Raees, Nawazuddin is the clear hero. He has all the lines, the scenes and the wins.

Last year when FAN was releases I was so mad, because it was a story between a Star and his FAN. That story was really really impressive but this movie's story is not good that is why most of the people disliked the movie. I am sorry it hurts the fans but in this movie Shah Rukh Khan is gangster, a goon. This movie is not good if you look at the story. They have to appreciate good not bad things which are happening in the society.

Now let's rate;

Acting:

Nawazuddin Siddiqui: 10/10 believe me only you will love this acting.

Shah Rukh Khan: 9/10 FAN was much much better.

Mahira Khan: 4/10 Over-acting, waste of precious screenplay time.

Story: 5/10

Music: 7/10

Direction: 8/10

PS: Nawazuddin I love you. And I think Aamir Khan is so Perfect, and Shah Rukh is devaluing himself by selecting bad stories and actresses. Story and some flaws undervalued this movie.
