Ajay Devgn appears so uninspired...

Sep 13, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

In its textures, Raid aims for a gritty realism but the characters are painted in broad strokes. Eventually the punch is predictable but after a few stumbles, it does land.

The film's real hero is the script writer. Ritesh Shah has made sure the dialogue breezes over the pouring over reams of paper while revolving around dusty offices, cowsheds and a mucky well.

Undeclared income is all around, and all it needs is a bit of digging, Raid says. That turns out to be its most enduring idea.

What helps is that Devgn is restrained in his performance, and Shah and Gupta resist the temptation to give in to too much jingoism. Shukla, as the arrogant politician whose bravado crumbles, is inspired as usual.

In short, the dramatic scenes between Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla alone are worth the price of the ticket. Watch the film if you like manly heroes quitely going about their jobs and villains who can be gentlemen at times.
