India Pages

The long wait is over for SRK fans. The trailer of Raees has finally been released. The wait was certainly worth it. Raees trailer is, hands down, one of the best trailers that Bollywood has seen in the longest time. Just one shot of SRK and his kohled eyes, and you will be hooked to this awesome trailer. It has all the masala of a commercial film. Action, drama, romance.

SRK is on a break from his romantic image, and doing different kinds of roles. This one is next in line with SRK in a full blown action avatar. Yep! There is kicking and punching and full on villain dismemberment in Raees. The “Baniye ka dimaag aur Miyanbhai ki daring” dialogue has already left us impressed. It was a glimpse that Raees film will be dazzling with witty and quotable dialogues and the trailer proves the notion more strongly. The actor can be seen firing bullets in a manner that would put an ace shooter to shame. But that’s not it, the actor kicks and punches his way thrown the hordes of baddies who come his way.

Raees is a very well written film and the dialogues are going to be sure shot memorable. Giving him company this time is ever dependable Nawazuddin Siddiqui. His and Shah Rukh Khan’s chemistry is one just another level. They complement each other. Nawaz telling him off for his criminal activity. “Dhandha band kar le varna saas lena bhi mushkil kar doonga,” he threatens Khan. SRK gives him a fitting reply saying, “Gujarat ki hawa mein vyaapar hai Saheb. Meri saas toh rok loge, lekin iss hawa ko kaise rokoge?” You get a glimpse of this cat-and-mouse game between the two.

What’s a SRK film without even a little bit of romance? So there is this super cute romantic scene with Mahira that will give you butterflies in the stomach. Yes! Mahira Khan is there in the trailer. She looks stunning and guess has a meatier role then it was initially though off.

At the end of the trailer as promised by the makers you get a glimpse Sunny Leone’s item number (Laila Ho Laila)!

Coming to the fact that Raees is clashing with Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan, one may now feel looking at both the trailers that this one is a big clash.

It will be a tough choice for the audience to choose between a revenge drama where Hrithik plays a disabled person compared to Shah Rukh playing a don.

All in all Raees looks a wholesome entertainer.
