The Ajay Devgn, Ileana D’Cruz and Saurabh Shukla starrer Raid is attack theatres on March 16. Touted as a initial Bollywood plan to be formed on an Income Tax raid, Raid is helmed by Raj Kumar Gupta. Set in a 80s, Raid explores how one of a country’s many high-profile raids was executed by a intrepid IT Officer called Amay Patnaik.
Before Raid releases tomorrow, we give we 5 reasons to watch this Ajay Devgn film:
Stellar star cast
Raj Kumar Gupta’s arriving film boasts of a stellar star cast. First up, we have a gifted Ajay Devgn in a purpose of Amay Patnaik, a no-nonsense Income Tax Officer who is hell-bent on curbing a problem of taxation semblance in his area. On a other side is a dictatorial Saurabh Shukla in a purpose of a rich goon, who goes by a name of Tauji. Ileana D’Cruz is personification a purpose of Devgn’s wife.
Ajay Devgn’s Raid is pronounced to be desirous by real-life Income Tax raids conducted in a 80s. While many of us are wakeful of a approach a IT Department has been conducting a raids in a past years, a film explores what goes on behind-the-scenes when some of a many politically and financially corroborated people of a multitude are put underneath a scanner.
Helmed by Aamir executive Raj Kumar Gupta
Raid executive Raj Kumar Gupta has films like Aamir and No One Killed Jessica to his credit. While No One Killed Jessica was formed on a Jessica Lal murder case, Aamir dealt with a story of an NRI alloy who is threatened by extremists. His films have been retaining stories that speak about a incomparable emanate though are still secure in reality. With Raid too, Raj Kumar Gupta is all set to dwarf himself.
The 80s UP timeline
Set in 1981 Lucknow, Raid also promises to constraint a nuances of an epoch left by. From a music, a denunciation to a altogether setting, it looks like a makers have done plenty bid to hang loyal to a timeline. And deliberation a flourishing seductiveness of cinephiles in internal UP stories (Bareilly Ki Barfi, Jolly LLB 2, Badrinath Ki Dulhania), Raid is set on a right track.
Another thing that has stood out in a Raid trailer is a approach Shukla and Devgn have imbibed a internal denunciation of Northern India to broach some-more relatable performances. While Shukla’s discourse “Andar toh aa gaye ho, bahar kaise jaoge?” and “Rajaji Ki Fauj!” have already struck a chord with a meme population, Ajay Devgn’s “Mein jiske ghar subah subah pahuch jau, kuch na kuch nikal kar hi lata hu.” uncover us a luminosity of author Ritesh Shah.
Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla are all set to raid a theatres on Mar 16.
