Star Performance

Ajay Devgan lived in the provided character Amay and impressed the fans. However, Saurabh Shukla just swallowed everyone by his natural acting. Pushpa Joshi, Ileana and Amit Sial have rendered great performances.


Raj Kumar Gupta has come with a right script at the right time. The film focuses on the corruption and Raj Kumar has penned the film perfectly. Except for a few flaws in the final segment, the entire film had moved well and impressed the audiences.

What’s There?

  • Best performance by the stars
  • Well scripted and well executed
  • Star cast is neat and best suited for the roles

What’s Not There?

  • Some minor flaws in the technical side


Raid will impress the people who want to watch a political crime thriller. Right from the script selection and the artist selection, everything went on fine. Ajay Devgan, who was last seen in “ Shivaay,” has come with a super performance to impress the audiences. Raid... Success!
