Raees is a 2017 Indian action crime thriller film directed by Rahul Dholakia and produced by Gauri Khan, Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under their banners Red Chillies Entertainment and Excel Entertainment.[6] It stars Shah Rukh Khan, Mahira Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.[7][8][9]

Raees was said to be based on criminal Abdul Latif‘s life[10][11][12] but, the filmmakers denied this, saying “The story of the film is a pure work of fiction, not based on any person; living or dead.”[13][14] The film released on 25 January 2017.

Filming and development

Shooting of the film began in April 2015.[6] The film has been shot in Mumbai,[20] and sets were re-designed to depict Ahmedabad slums.[21] The last schedule of the film was shot in Gujarat in January 2016.[22] Despite protests, the film was shot in Bhuj without disruptions between January and February 2016.

Sneha May Francis and Mahwash Ajaz of Dawn respectively commented, “This isn’t a fine film. It’s vintage Bollywood fluff, which SRK will manage to turn into box-office gold.” and, “Raees is the story of neither a hero nor a villain – it is the story of a man who lived in a corrupted system with corrupted morals.”[39]

Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News gave the film 3 out of 5 stars and wrote, “While the film is engaging, what lets it down are some of the contrived and ridiculous twists in the second half. But the climax packs a punch and that misgiving — ‘where is this film going?’ — is erased.”[40]

Rachel Saltz of The New York Times stated that “Avoiding flabby subplots, Mr. Dholakia keeps “Raees” taut and suspenseful, even at two and a half hours, though it probably has a song too many.
