Synopsis

Raid is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language period crime drama film written by Ritesh Shah and directed by Raj Kumar Gupta. It features Ajay Devgn, Ileana D'Cruz, Saanand Verma and Saurabh Shukla.

Synopsis: Set in the 80s in Uttar Pradesh, India, Raid is based on the true story of one of the most high profile raids the country has ever known. Amay Patnaik (Ajay Devgn), an upright and no-nonsense Income Tax officer has already been transferred 49 times in the past seven years owing to his idealistic and courageous disposition to uncover tax frauds, hitting hard the pockets of many a big shot. When Patnaik is assigned the case of Tauji, a highly influential and feared man in Uttar Pradesh, little does he know that his unerring determination to bring Tauji to justice would culminate in the longest and most challenging raid of his career as also the history of the Income Tax Department of India. Would Amay succeed in the face of an increasingly stubborn and belligerent Tauji forms the crux of the story.

Filmmaker Raj Kumar Gupta’s Raid manages to bring in applause. Raj Kumar Gupta has made an enjoyable and impressive movie with Raid. Ritesh Shah has written an intelligent script and screenplay one that has fascinating characters and dialogue too. Raid is a captivating movie with commercial quotient.
 
As per story, an incorruptible IT officer Amay Patnaik (Ajay Devgn) gets an anonymous tip about a political leader Tauji’s (Saurabh Shukla) illegal assets. Patnaik plans an elaborate Raid on Tauji’s home and businesses.
 
The start of the movie is a little slow, particularly because of the love story angle coming in. But, what keeps the momentum for the most part of the movie, especially in portions leading to the interval point and then immediately after that the verbal duals between Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla. Each and every time that they come face to face, there are quite a few clapping moments that come in.
 
Ajay Devgn plays Amay Patnaik with peculiar intensity and determination. He’s the ideal public servant. With great pride he assumes control of the IT department in Lucknow in the year 1981. Saurabh Shukla essays the principal antagonist Tauji to great effect. He’s the resident baahubali, a man who prides his political power and has enough confidence to mock the hero before the raid begins. In Raid, The hero is the voice of justice and righteousness while the villain is on a power trip. Their banter, their clash and their conflict makes for a captivating watch.
 
Saurabh Shukla’s act as Tauji is the best part of the film. He brings in quirks and shades that make his character the most interesting highlight of the movie. Ajay Devgn keeps his intensity high and delivers his hard-hitting dialogues with natural ease. Ileana D’Cruz is pretty enough and has given able support to narrative. Amit Sial is good enough. 85-year-old Pushpa Joshi as Tauji’s mother is really delightful.
 
Raid had potential, but attempts were halfhearted. With a tighter editing, slightly less focus on the love story and a lesser quotient of melodrama, Raid could have been a fascinating thriller.
 
Overall, Raid is a watchable film due to Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla’s powerful acts.
