Hero does not always come in uniform! Yes, the tagline of the film 'Raid' is that heroes do not always come in uniform. In Bollywood films, we mostly see action heroes fighting enemies in police or army uniforms. Ajay Devgan himself has shown this feat in the role of police and army officer in many films. These include many films from his 'Singham' and 'Gangajal' to 'Zameen'. But in this film 'Raid', Ajay Devgan is in the role of a hero who shows his power without uniform. It is also being touted as the world's first film on Income Tax Raid.
According to experts, the film Raid is based on the true incident of a high-profile raid in Lucknow in 1981, in which a fearless Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer Amay Patnaik (Ajay Devgan) MP Rameshwar Singh alias Rajaji Singh (Saurabh Shukla) Raids with his entire team. Rajaji puts all his efforts to escape, while Amay also does not back down. However, who wins in this tug of war, you will only find out by going to the theater. In this entire incident, the courageous officer Amay's wife Neeta Patnaik (Ileana D'Cruz) also supports her husband.
Ajay Devgan is known to live his characters in a special way. In this film, he showed that whether the role is of a uniformed hero or a non-uniformed hero, he does it with equal vigor. At the same time, for the role of Rajaji, no other artist could be better than Saurabh Shukla. Ileana D'Cruz has also acted well according to her small role. Rajaji's grandmother is also amazing. Rajkumar Gupta, the director of 'Raid', who has made sharp films like 'Aamir' and 'No One Killed Jessica' before, may have changed the names of the real culprits and officers of this high profile raid long ago, but at that time He has been largely successful in creating the atmosphere.
At the same time, Ritesh Shah, who wrote the film's story and dialogue with Rajkumar Gupta, has shown his awesome. Audiences of the film will be liked by the audience. Ritesh, who had earlier earned praise for his work in the film 'Pink', has also worked hard on story, screenplay and dialogue in 'Raid'. Especially in a film that is based on a true event, you don't have much drama to do. If you find the film funny before the interval, then it becomes very exciting in the second half. The best thing is that Rajkumar Gupta has done a lot of editing, due to which the film ends in just over two hours. This weekend, if you want to see something exciting, then this film is for you.
