Film Review: Raees


After so much drama and delay, Raees was finally released today and of course we had to go check it out. From Salman Khan to Aamir Khan, all celebrities (except Ajay Devgan 😂) endorsed the film, all the more reason to watch it.

The cast was quite impressive, from Shahrukh Khan to Nawazuddin Siddiqui and our very own Mahira Khan. This was supposed to be the one blockbuster of the year. When you see Shahrukh Khan in the cast of any film,  you naturally have high expectations from it.

Without giving out the plot of the film, here’s what we thought of Raees…2 hours 41 minutes of torture! Shahrukh seriously needs to stop trying to play these “bad ass” roles, we love him as the king of romance.

Mahira Khan Bhi Thi? The Pakistani beauty’s role in the film was as important as Ilaichi is in Briyani, plus she’s married to a “Badmaash” but speaks Urdu so sophisticatedly that it felt she landed there straight out of Humsafar. But Mahira is gorgeous nonetheless! Gotta give it to her for that.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui was the life of the film. His acting was impressive, way better than the entire cast of Raees combined. He should have been the main lead of the film.

The songs OMFG- didn’t like em! What was up with the horrible rendition of “Laila o Laila” with Sunny Leone as the item girl, feel like we need to go to therapy just to get over it.

Rating: 3/10
