Raees is an ordinary man, but his relationships and meteoric rise help him build an entire empire. He eliminates every opposition that comes his way. But his downfall will be crossing paths with no-nonsense police officer Majumdar (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), whose sole reason for existence is elimination of crime. The battle between the two forms the crux of the story.


Raees has an interesting story and engaging screenplay. Some dialogues, humour and action scenes keep the film goers entertained in the first half of the film. But the second half is predictable and the narration is slow in parts. The climax is good and it works big time, say the audience.


Shah Rukh Khan has delivered brilliant performance and his action and dialogue diction are the highlights of Raees. Mahira Khan has done justice to her role and her glamour and chemistry with SRK are among the highlights of the film. As stubborn cop, Nawazuddin Siddiqui will impress the film goers and he is big asset of the film. Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Atul Kulkarni, Sheeba Chaddha have done good jobs. Sunny Leone wins the heart with her dance in the item song Laila Main Laila, say the audience.


Raees has superb production elements. Ram Sampath's soundtracks and background score, KU Mohanan's picturisation, choreography of action scenes and punch dialogues are the attrations on the technical front, add the viewers.

We bring you some viewers' verdict and ratings for the film shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of Raees movie review and ratings by audience:

#Raees 3/5. Edge of seat, with awesome performance @iamsrk .A thrilling & exciting rid, reminding U of Salim &Javed Bachchan movies of 80's #Raees 3/5. The period of 70's & 80's has been brilliantly recreated by #RahulDholakia, (including Drive-In Theater), dialogues r fab. #Raees 3/5. Superb @Nawazuddin_S & his cat & mouse game with @iamsrk is the highlight. Climax will leave a lump in your throat. #Raees 3/5. Definitely 1st half is far superior & more enjoyable. Post -interval loses focus. Liked Zaalima song & rooftop action scenes.
