On the whole, RAID is a realistic and hard-hitting thriller that keeps you hooked right till the end. A film that is sure to win accolades as well as positive word of mouth. This twisty tale is definitely a must watch movie this weekend.


Rating: 3.5/5

Ajay Devgn is in his zone throughout & we know how he plays on his homeground. The role of Amay is tailor made for Ajay and it’s impossible to imagine anyone else then him. All said and done, watch this for an entertaining story, edge of the seat kinda narration and first-class performances by Ajay Devgn & Saurabh Shukla. A Raid you’ll not mind being a part of!

Indian Express

Rating: 1.5/5

Raid had potential, but it comes off overlong and tepid. And where is the city of Lucknow? What we get is same-old flashes of historic buildings in all their crumbling glory, as a backdrop to drab songs, but no sign of the vibrant, living culture of the place this film is supposedly set in.


Rating: 3.5/5

Devgn does brooding intensity better than most of his colleagues, and injects just the right amount of vulnerability into Amay to make him relatable. This is not the kind of fare you might expect to set your pulses racing, but that is precisely what it achieves in its closing scenes. Raid is not regular Bollywood. What it is though is thoroughly entertaining.

Hindustan Times

Rating: 2.5/5

Ajay Devgn is in top form – the silent, brooding, serious and moralistic officer who loves his family but considers duty and country above all of that. With a tighter editing, slightly less focus on the wannabe love story and a lesser dose of melodrama, Raid could have been a gripping thriller.


Rating: 4/5

 Watch Raid because despite the corruption around us, we still believe we can win the war against black money hoarders. Also, watch it for Ajay Devgn’s intensity. He is sincere, relentless and doesn’t blink even once. One star in the rating is reserved only for him.

Deccan Chronicles

Rating: 3/5

Ajay Devgn speaks through his eyes. His intense look does enough magic on screen but he almost enacts the same in all his movies. With no other releases this Friday, Raid is a clear winner. A seat edge drama with brilliant dialogues makes it a praiseworthy film.


Rating: 3.5/5

Devgn's brooding presence, which shores up film, is reminiscent of the actor's Najaayaz and Zakhm> days. Shukla is brilliant as the cynical politician who does not abandon his defiant stance even when the chips are hopelessly down. Together, the two actors give Raid its heft. Raid delivers riveting fare without resorting to too many standard Bollywood tics.

Bollywood Life

Rating: 3/5

There’s something about seeing Ajay Devgn play an officer – a policeman, an army personnel or an income tax officer. He brings a lot of depth to the character, what with his brooding eyes and deep baritone. Raid is a great watch if you want inspiration to file your IT returns on time. Raid is a decent watch, even otherwise. However, don’t expect it to bowl you over.

  1. Reviews are very positive.

    I hope it crosses 9 cr plus today and then have solid growth over the weekend. Fingers crossed.

    What a guy Ajay is !! The movie is realistic in nature and genre not very appealing yet creating a solid impression with his awesome acting skills.

      1. Raid will be a disaster.....
        One more joins the long disaster list of devgun.
        Same kind of acting in every movie...
        It's not even called acting coz he looks like that.

      1. Do we have to remind you of sun zara song?! I’m sure the actress in that song was a minor?! With Salman Khan eeeeeewwwww gross!!!

  2. Where is Boby Sidhu with his 6 crore prediction?
    The movie will go arround 10 crore.
    Bollyarena all of us can do better prediction than boby, please kick him out

  3. 3rd biggest star ? Definition of 3rd biggest star is one who can't give 10 crore opening that too on solo release 3400 screens.

  4. I am a die hard akki fan and a true cinema lover thats why I praise every actor when he delivers a good movie. And Raid is also a brilliant movie. Ajay devega and rajiv shukla was terrific. Hats off to Ajay character. A must watch movie. 2nd movie after Padman which delivers a great msg and feel us proud. Padman ko to tum logon n Apne ego k karan nahi dekha hoga akki haters or dekha b hoga to permote nahi kiya hoga. But is baar Apne paap dho lena. Or Han akki fans Plz bewjha Raid Ki burai mat karna. Honestly Bhoot achi movie doston. Or agar khans achi movie banaye to Usey b sport karna.

    1. OK I HV a deal to salman fans if u all stop trolling Akki then I promise all Akkian including me will stop trolling ur star
      Every actor is perfect in their ways
      After this post I will never troll any actor
      So its a deal [email protected] tiger,sallu tiger hai, honest man etc

      1. tu kya salman ko troll karega? jyada se jyada wohi marigold biscuit keh sakta hai...hum vi kahenge joker, meri biwika jawab nahi etc

  5. You need to put Rajeev Masand's review. Must of his reviews nowadays match Box office

    Raja sen is exactly opposite. HE gave 5 stars to Fan, DZ and Padman LOL

  6. Fans might be fighting for Whatever they feel like but fact is movie is super ....go watch without any bias following of any star worth watching ...
