Movie Review: Raees

Source: imdb.com
First of all, I would like to thank to a blogger, Mommy Cici for inviting me and also Antenna Entertainment for the press screening of Raees.

It had been so long I didn't do movie review due to some reason. First, most of the movie I went by myself without any sponsorship. Second, I didn't enter a movie contest for quiet some time now. Third, I was quiet broke for the time being. Last but not least, that Goblin and Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo made me stay home and finished all of those episode non stop (highly addictive).

Without further ado, let's jump to the SYNOPSIS

RAEES is a fictitious story of a man named, Raees, set in early 1980's to 1990's Gujarat, India. The film explores how Raee's relationships and meteoric rise helped him build and entire empire from scratch, to make him the single most powerful man in the state.

His layered character traits encapsulate and inimitable blend of personas, making him revered, loved and feared.

Always thinking ahead of the curve and using revolutionary ideas of management which were unheard of during his time, but are now doctrines for students, Raees eliminates every opposition that come his way.

However, his downfall will crossing paths with the no-nonsense police officer Majumdar, whose sole reason for existence is the elimination of crime. 

What will happened in the movie between all of the character? I will tell you after this.

But, to get that visual thingy, click play on this video

CAST (actor and actresses) in the movie of course the Shah Rukh Khan, Mahira Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and others.

Everyone knows Shah Rukh Khan. Well, who doesn't? But, mostly he is well known in the melodrama Bollywood movie. Not saying that he never acted in this kind of actions movie and be one of the antagonist character.

I'm not surprised by his awesome acting at all, because he is one of the GREAT Bollywood actors all time.

But I'm more surprised by other supporting roles. Well, truthfully I watched like very mainstream and well known Bollywood movie like 3 idiots, Kabhi Kushi Kabhie Gham and etc. 

Due to that, I only watched the same actor and actresses all over again. Yeah I know kind of underestimate them but hey, I was proved WRONG.

I personally like Nawazuddin Siddiqui (police officer). His character was so cool, and kind of had that different vibe of being the police officer. Poker face which I like, because I can't guess what his doing up next, playful in some ways and loyal to his job.

I know is just acting, but I like how he emerged and act as the character needed to. But, (spoiler alert) I think that he will let Raees alive after that conversation they have in the van. Other thing is, I'm schock when he left Raees body in that huge space. 

I said that not because I disagree, but that shows the truth and real life can't always have a happy ending.

For Mahira Khan, well she is a really loyal girlfriend/wife, and to interpret that love to a criminal was just feel like real. I can feel that real love dude.

And yeap best friend, Chirag (Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub), is a bromance in this movie. Their friendship is remarkable. I thought they will be some huge cat fight between Raees and him (just like typical unfaithful and stab you in the back kind of friend), but naah, that is a true friendship.

CINEMATOGRAPHY in Bollywood movies never failed me at all. The song is not that overwhelming and apart just focusing on Shah Rukh Khan itself, I think that it involve lots of people too equally, due to their individual strong character.

Apart from all of that, I think you should try to watch this and make sure to be patience because the movie is quite lengthy. As my advice, please do not hold your pee, just go to the toilet although you will missing out a few scene from the movie. 

Till then, make sure you leave a comment below and tell me how you feel about this movie, either a naah or yaay!

P/S: As for all my movie review, I didn't give any rate because I'm afraid that will stop from enjoying this movie. Make sure watched it will a clear mind and make a personal review about them, because we have a different opinion, individually.
