High production values and superb performances!!!
30 January 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What a comeback SRK!!! Take a bow. Best SRK performance after ChakDe. 80's Gujarat is presented so well, every details has been captured so beautifully, all thanks to Dholkia! Nawaz has acted so well as a IPS police officer, reminds me of his role from Kahani where he played the same character! Mahiraa is very fresh and her chemistry with SRK is simply superb!Characters are established in RAEES so nicely that it reminds you great movies like Deewar & Sholay. The action sequences are very realistic & hard hitting.The movie has lots of twist and turns with some unique business tricks shown how selling of prohibited products use to carry out in Gujrat. A must must watch for SRK fans!!!
