  • Ajay Devgn appears so uninspired...

  • 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.

  • Raj Kumar Gupta and his writer Ritesh Shah do manage to hold the audience interest but only intermittently so...Raid could have been much more tight, taut and thrilling than it turns out to be.

  • 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.
