[Raees] is a fiery slice of Bollywood action.
Avoiding flabby subplots, Mr. Dholakia keeps "Raees" taut and suspenseful, even at two and a half hours, though it probably has a song too many.
The movie is an unabashed commercial entertainer. You go in for the awesomesauce Raees-Majmudar war, which is full of decadent Bollywood masala. If you are into that kinda thing, you will regret missing this one.
Shah Rukh Khan has never looked better; he's full of fury and for once, isn't spreading his arms, but breaking others'. The film lies entirely on his shoulders and he carries the weight most of the time.
Raees is a sporadically fun, but frequently tedious attempt to reinvigorate the style of films that made Bollywood in the '80s an exciting place to be.
SRK's bravado dialogue delivery has some great stand out moments.
The beauty is in the detailing, even if the big picture is banal.
The problem is fundamental: the writing is shoddy and unoriginal. And by the time it wades into certain true events, it is left with too little time and meaning. Raees perhaps works only as an SRK showcase. But we've seen many of those already.
The film is set up so that the superstar shines -- except that he doesn't.
This is an uneven film. In places, you will applaud and whistle. But you might also find yourself utterly exhausted.
Overall, Raees is a typical Bollywood masala drama.
