Star Performances

Shah Rukh Khan… Oh Man! What a performance! This is yet another new side of the Bollywood Badshah. Nawazuddin has also done his part well. Mahira is being used like any other templated heroine. However, she is good in a few emotions.

Analysis

Although the gangster story is not a new one to Bollywood, Rahul Dholakia has handled it well. The dialogues get the appreciation and the cinematography is stunningly good. ACP’s conversations need a special mention here. Music is quite impressive. The first half is perfectly paced.

What’s There?

  • Performance of Shah Rukh and Nawazuddin
  • Perfect background music and songs
  • Impressive dialogues
  • Good cinematography

What’s Not There?

  • A bit lengthy film

Verdict

Mahira from Pakistan has no notable work and she has played a templated heroine. There are a lot of beautiful heroines here, who could also perform well. If you are an SRK fan, you will definitely watch the film twice. SRK has shown a different dimension in his performance. Raees… top in the race!
