Bollywood Red Salman Khan 2

6 Blockbuster Movies Rejected By Salman Khan

Salman Khan is the most successful Bollywood actor when it comes to the box office. His fan following is enormous. He is the undisputed top most Bollywood actor in Vogue’s list on the basis of earning and popularity both. The actor is known to deliver box office successes one after another. He is a dream actor and most chased one by the top directors. Son of a top writer Salim Khan and brother of two successful directors Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan, Salman Khan is expected to choose his movies wisely. But the actor has declined some big offers in the past which then went on to become some of the top box office successes of all time.  One actor’s loss is always another actor’s gain. In fact, three of those films that were subsequently done by Shahrukh Khan, became the career defining movies for the superstar.

So let’s take a look on the hugely successful films that were offered to Salman Khan.

Baazigar 1993

Bollywood Red Baazigar Shahrukh Khan and Kajol

Though Shahrukh Khan had already done a few films before, but Baazigar’s success landed him among the top league actors of Bollywood and cleared his path to go on to be called a superstar. His performance in the negative role of Baazigar drew attention of the critics as well.  The film became a huge success at box office and after that Shahrukh never looked back. The film was initially offered to salman Khan. Salman was director duo Abbas-Mastan’s first choice, but the actor refused the part. The role earned Shahrukh the Best Actor award from Filmfare.

Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge 1995

Bollywood Red DDLJ Shahrukh Khan and Kajol

The most iconic romantic movie of Bollywood Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge is another movie that Salman refused for some unknown reasons. In fact, he kept on refusing many movies from Yasraj till Ek Tha Tiger in 2012. The movie was one of the most ambitious project of Yashraj as it was the debut film of Aditya Chopra as a director. In fact, Aditya Chopra wanted to cast Tom Cruise for the legendary role of ‘Raj Malhotra’ in ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ as he wanted it to be an Indo-American affair. But Aditya Chopra had to re-work on his story as his legendary filmmaker father Yash Chopra didn’t want to make it with foreign star. The movie released on 25th anniversary of Yash Raj Films. After SRK won Best Actor for his role in this movie, Aamir Khan stopped attending the Filmfare Awards because he felt he should have won for Rangeela. The movie is the first Indian movie with a Dolby sound mix. This movie remains the most iconic film in the history of Indian cinema.

On 14 December 2014 the movie continued in theaters and had remained in theaters and in 19 years, 1000 weeks. On December 14, 2014, Aditya Chopra released a book titled “Aditya Chopra relives… Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge” to celebrate the film completing 1000 weeks.

Josh 2000

Bollywood Red Baazigar Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya

Apparently, the director Mansoor Khan had offered the lead role to Salman Khan but Salman refused as he didn’t want to play a brother to Aiswarya Rai. The film took 4 years to complete. But went on to become successful at box office. Shahrukh Khan wore blue contacts in the film in order to look more like Aishwarya Rai in the film. Shahrukh Khan rendered his own voice for the song “Apun Bola”.

Kal Ho Na Ho 2003

Bollywood Red Baazigar Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta

Salman was also offered the role of ‘Aman’ (later played by Saif Ali Khan) in Kal Ho Na Ho. But he was not interested in playing a supporting actor to Shahrukh Khan, so he turned down the offer. Filmmaker Karan Johar had written the script with his friend Kareena Kapoor  in mind as the leading lady. But she asked for too high a fee and was replaced by Preity Zinta. This later became the bone of contention between both of them and Johar didn’t speak to Kareena for over a year which he regretted later and has written about it elaborately in his autobiography ‘The Unsuitable Boy’.

Kal Ho Naa Ho also shares with the only other two Bollywood Films – Kabhie Kabhie (1976) and Saathiya (2004) to be the only Bollywood film that holds the maximum (3) number of music awards (where the title song is exactly the same with the film).

Chak De India 2007

Bollywood Red Chak De India Shahrukh Khan 1

Another one of Shahrukh Khan’s much-acclaimed role as the coach of the Indian Women Hockey Team was first offered to Salman. But he couldn’t take up the movie because of his busy schedule.  The movie was a big success at box office and took Shahrukh’s credibility to few notches up. Also it helped him break the stereotype and got very good reviews on his performance from critics. This film sparked a national resurgence of interest in the sport. Within days of the film’s appearance, sales of hockey sticks shot up by 30%. Chak De India was based on the real life of legendary hockey player Mirranjan Negi. Writer Jaideep Sahni got the idea for the script when he was flicking through a newspaper and a small story about a women’s hockey team caught his eye. Actress Freida Pinto auditioned for a role in the film. SRK again won his 7th filmfare award for best actor for Chak de India. The title song in this movie even inspired Indian cricket team to win ICC T20 World cup 2007.

Ghajini 2008

Bollywood Red Ghajini Aamir Khan

Now this role was definitely written keeping Salman Khan in mind, no doubt about it. The movie narrates the life of a short-term memory loss patient who sets out on his journey to avenge the death of his beloved girl. Aamir Khan, as he is called a perfectionist, did a superb job in the role. But Salman could have also pulled off the role well. In fact, Aamir himself recommended Salman’s name after reading the script. But ultimately Aamir ended up doing the role.  Ghajini was the first film in India to be given a UA certificate on account of violence and not sexual content.

This is a remake of the Tamil film Ghajini (2005), which was inspired by the Christopher Nolan movie Memento (2000).  Anil Kapoor revealed in an interview that Christopher Nolan was upset that they didn’t give him any credits or money as the film is inspired by his movie Memento (2000) when he met him in Hollywood. However Nolan and the Ghajini crew talked over and everything got sorted out later. Ghajini was the first Hindi movie ever to cross 100 crore. It also started the trend of the prestigious “100 crore ” club.

Though Salman Khan didn’t become a part of these successful movies, he still continued to rule over box office and has delivered hits one after another.

Bollywood red Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya Varun Dhawan Tamma Tamma

Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan’s Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya : What We Know About Badri

Badrinath bansal a.k.a. Badri of upcoming film ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya’ falls in love with his dream girl Vaidehi Trivedi who refuses to even consider him. But Badri is just not ‘giving up’ types and pursues his love against all odds. He takes up the challenge and from there on his journey starts to prove Vaidehi that he is the one for her. Badri is loving, caring and can make you laugh. So what is his character is exactly which Vaidehi doesn’t approve of? Dharma Production’s film has already sets the expectations high and there is already a chemistry between Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan. Since the character of Badri has been introduced, everyone including Shahrukh Khan and other Bollywood stars are already curious about the character.

Badrinath is only Virat Kohli’s fan and a huge fan. Varun Dhawan wrote in a tweet, “Badri is only @imVkohli fan. Thank you virat for being so cool and humble we all have a lot to learn from u #realhero.”

Badrinath is kaccha in math and is defeated by compound interest. On the other hand Vaidehi can calculate simple and compound interest. He does eventually wrestle with and learn the formula for simple interest – but compound interest defeats him.

Badrinath Bansal doesn’t have a brain, but has a heart which beats only for Vaidehi. During the launch of the trailer of Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Varun Dhawan said that at one point of time, he was like his character Badrinath. He told news agency IANS, “Badrinath doesn’t have a brain, but he has a heart. I was like that probably when I was in college.” Varun tweeted this too.

By the way, Badrinath is very expressive when it comes to women. Badrinath is naive but has no problem approaching women – and, indeed, annoys Vaidehi by skipping the preliminaries and ‘taking rishta‘ to her house. In an interview to Indian Express, Varun said that Badrinath Bansal is very expressive and smart. “Badri will create a scene if he has to. So to become Badri for the film, I had to break a lot of personal barriers. I just cannot talk to girls the way Badri does,” he said.

Also Badrinath loves Sanjay Dutt. In the film Tamma Tamma song is there which is a remixed version of the Nineties hit from Thanedaar, featuring Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt.

A comparative Analysis – Why 2016 Was Not As Good A year For Bollywood As 2015

While regional films and Hollywood enjoyed a superb run at the Indian box office, Bollywood rather had a turbulent ride comparatively in 2016. Compared to 2015, the top 10 films saw a 6.5% dip in combined collection, from Rs 1,484 crore in 2015, to Rs 1,387 crore in 2016. Bollywood didn’t perform better in 2016 though eight of the top 10 films crossed the Rs 100 crore mark, from six last year. The major revenue came from Sultan (Rs 300 crore), Dangal (Rs 216 crore as of Friday and still running in cinemas across the country) and MS Dhoni–The Untold Story (Rs 133 crore). Bollywood just managed to sustain profitability as the top eight films in 2016 gave returns comparable to 2015, and are expected to exceed the (return on investment), considering Dangal, which has already booked profits, will be in theaters for a couple of weeks more, at least.
On the other side, comparing the notable flops, the loss percentage has gone up from 48% in 2015 to 56.4% in 2016. Experts attribute this to lack of rationalization while budgeting for films, a trend that has burdened the sector for a while but is now seeing a better trend.

Ajit Andhare, operations head at Viacom18 Motion Pictures says, movies should be budgeted based on the script and targeted audience.

“I have said this before and I maintain that we (as an industry) need to start budgeting movies depending on the script and who the content is meant for. Only then will we see profitability rise. The other challenge I notice is increasing the footfall to movie screens. There might have been a slight dip in the footfall in 2016 and while inflation in ticket prices makes up for some of this drop, the movie-going habit needs to be encouraged for the industry to grow,”  –  Ajit Andhare, operations head at Viacom18 Motion Pictures.

Sunil Lulla, managing director, Eros International, agrees with this to bring out the optimal box office collection.
“Release strategies and marketing are connected to the cost of production, genre and talent. Marketing is all about smartly reaching the audience through various mediums, through appropriate budgets. Release strategies (number of screens) have to be planned accordingly, so as to bring out the optimal box office collection.” – Sunil Lulla, managing director, Eros International
Bollywood Red Business Analysis 2016 2
In terms on content, it seems that the audience has found a liking for the biopics and sport themes. The top three films of the year (Sultan, Dangal and MS Dhoni) all centered around sport and/or sport personalities (wrestling/wrestlers in the first two and cricket in the third. Non-sport biopics also found favour with the audiences, as is evident from the success of films Rustom, Neerja and Airlift. 

Marketing continued to play a significant role, with studios opting for a measured and targeted approach, rather than going for a general strategy.

“With hundreds of movies releasing every year, is critical in communicating about your film to the audience, as well as building that connect, creating excitement and anticipation. For example, with Dangal, we stayed very true to the movie and didn’t overdo the noise levels.The most important collateral launch, the pay-off trailer, was done in a pure-play digital method, instead of a traditional TV and print burst. We built upon the existing positive buzz by releasing strong audio and video assets. We also rolled out some behind the scene units, such as the ‘Fat to Fit’ video which went on to become viral, as it was raw and real and showed the effort behind Aamir’s phenomenal transformation,” – Amrita Pandey, vice-president, studios, Disney India.

2016 also saw a new entry and a big player in the studio business, with the Punit Goenka-led Zee Entertainment Enterprises launching its Bollywood and regional operations under the Zee Studios brand. Goenka mentioned they were looking at films as an essential vertical for the business, and with hits like Rustom and Sairat (Marathi), it seems to have started on a right note.

Though the demonetization instilled fear of pulling down by many, from the success of Dangal it seems the industry didn’t suffer largely. Kamal Gianchandani, chief executive at PVR Pictures, feels the success or failure of a title cannot be attributed only to the cash crunch from demonetization.

“Content plays a big role. If the content is appealing, the film will do well, as we saw with Dear Zindagi and are seeing with Dangal. The main impact was felt in the first two weeks, when the content from didn’t really excite the audiences either,” – Kamal Gianchandani, Chief Executive, PVR Pictures

Content did play a major role this year, as in the past three-odd ones. Neerja, Pink, Kapoor and Sons, Dear Zindagi, Baaghi, Airlift, Udta Punjab and Rustom were much appreciated by critics and proved that good content sells.

“2016 has been a good year for differentiated content and high concept films. It’s been the year of biopics and realistic cinema which not only entertains but presents a new story that audiences haven’t seen. Most important, once again, it has reinforced the power of good scripts,” – Vijay Singh, chief executive, Fox Star Studios

Bollywood Red Box Office Business Analysis 2016
Studio heads feel the challenges ahead would be much the same as before – recognizing the scale and target group where the content will appeal and budgeting accordingly, dealing with the under-screened nature of the Indian exhibition space, and marketing the movie innovatively and cost-effectively. As the Hollywood and regional slate grows in output and appeal for audiences, Bollywood has a big task ahead in 2017.

Is Shahrukh Khan’s Raees ruling? Box Office Day To Day Analysis And Success Party

Shahrukh Khan is known as the King Khan for a reason. He rules. And once again, when called upon, his fans responded in hoards, not only to the train he famously took from Mumbai to Delhi, but also to the box office. After the first trailer was released, the film was stalled for a year, but still SRK managed to bring it back in its full glory. When he released the second trailer it went viral on social media. In the first six days of release, the film has reached 98.25 crores, a fraction short of the 100 crore mark. The last day, however, could be a reason for the makers to worry: on Monday, Raees made only 6 crores, a 55% drop from Friday.

on 29th, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh posted the following tweet with a day-by-day break up of the movie’s performance.

Taran Adarsh’s post :

Box Office India has given the following figures:

Wednesday – 20,25,00,000

Thursday – 26,25,00,000

Friday – 13,00,00,000

Saturday – 15,50,00,000

Sunday – 17,25,00,000

Monday – 6,00,00,000


Trade speculations for the movie was for it to do well over the current week as there are no major releases yet to rival it’s run, but the large drop in Monday’s earnings have put a question mark on that. This drop might mean that the film will not be as big a success as Aamir Khan‘s Dangal or Salman Khan‘s Sultan. However, Shahrukh Khan does not mind.

He said the following to PTI:

“Why should we compare with only the last big hit, like Dangal and Sultan which are much bigger hits than perhaps this film can ever be. We know that. That comparison from outside, very good. From inside, we know the truth that there is a limit it will go to and if it reaches we will be happy.” – Shahrukh Khan

While Raees is already a big hit and won the much hyped race with Hrithik Roshan‘s Kaabil, it remains to be seen how much bigger it gets. This week will be quite a test for the film as the initial euphoria will be over and movie will be tested on it’s own merit.

But then, a success is a success and SRK and his cast and crew are not waiting for the final figures to start the celebrations. After all the hard work, it’s time for party and cerebrations.

Salman Khan has claimed back No 1 rank on the 2016 Forbes India Celebrity 100 List, with two big commercial success, Sultan and Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo. While Sultan earned at box office with a net India collection of Rs 300.45 crore, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo  earned Rs 200 crore at the box office. The superstar has the most loyal fan following and boosted his earnings with 12 brand endorsements.

2. Shahrukh Khan – 221.75 Crore

Shahrukh Khan was at number one in 2015. But the actor lost it to Salman this year both in terms of box office success and brands endorsed. He had two big hits this year. Dilwale with Kajol and Fan where he played a double role. Both the movie opened well at the box office, but didn’t sustain for that long where he could beat the Sultan star. Shahrukh also lost a bit of ground with fewer endorsements compared to 2015.

3. Akshay Kumar – 203.03 Crore

Bollywood Red Akshay Kumar Top 10 Earning Actor Payment Rich List Popular

Akshay Kumar is the only actor who continues to challenge the might of the three Khans (Salman, Shahrukh and Aamir) had an impressive run again. His number of films a year is always much more than the three khans. He had five releases this year – Airlift, Rustom and Housefull 3, Dishoom and Singh is Bling. But only three of them were successes (Airlift, Rustom and Housefull 3). Dishoom and Singh is Bliing did average business. This year could be a game changer for this actor as 2017 is going to see a big list of film releases from Akshay including Rajinikanth’s 2.0.

4. Hrithik Roshan – 90.25 Crore

Hrithik Roshan had a strange year at the box office. His only release, the much-awaited romantic epic drama Mohenjo Daro (2016), was a disaster, with a collection of just Rs 58 crore. The film was made on a budget of more than Rs 100 crore. He now has high hopes from his next Kaabil, we wait to see how much Kaabil will gross in total. But this year brand endorsement has proven to compensate the actor’s earnings. Hrithik continues to be active and popular on social media also.

5. Amitabh Bachchan – 32.62 Crore

Amitabh Bachchan, the most popular superstar for the longest time in Bollywood, has gone to his lowest rank in five years. With two disasters at the box office, it did not help Mr. Bachchan to claim any of his previous ranks. But Pink saved the year for him. Also a television show, Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi on Star Plus helped him averagely in terms of viewership.

6. Ranveer Singh – 67.42 Crore

Ranveer Singh has made a huge leap from the last year. His movie, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani, which was a hit. He also has also become very popular in the corporate world with a wide array of endorsements that have added to his revenue. His next movie Padmavati, which could be a game changer for him, is also expected to be a big hit.

7. Ranbir Kapoor 55.5 Crore

Ranbir Kapoor did not have a great year. His movie, Karan Johar‘s Bombay Velvet was a disaster. His next movie was Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha with Deepika Padukone, earned Rs 65 crore in collections, against a budget of around Rs 60 crore. Towards the end of the year, he came back in a big way with Karan Johar‘s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. His earnings from this movie however didn’t help him much to come up in the rank.

8. Kapil Sharma – 30.17 Crore

The ever charismatic Kapil Sharma is arguably the most popular face on television right now. With his ability to make everyone laugh, he is laughing all the way to the bank.

He is now working on two films, 13 August 1947 and Firangi.

9. Varun Dhawan – 25 Crore

It was more a quiet year for Saif Ali Khan. That explains why he is at number 10. His endorsements were only a few too. Next year could be a game changer as films like Rangoon and chef are coming up.

Bollywood Red Shahrukh Khan Rajdhani Express Raees Promotions Mumbai Central Battery Nahi Bolneka Baniye Ka Dimaag aur Miyan Bhai Ki Daring Udi udi jaye patang song Tu shama Hai To Main Hun Parwan

Shahrukh Khan Says, ‘Why should I compare Raees’s collections to Dangal or Sultan?’

It was the celebration of Shahrukh Khan‘s Raees in JW Marriot, Mumbai. King Khan arrived in a jeep with Raees‘s cast spreading his charm like he does in the movie. It was a filmi entry, in his style, like his train journey, like his interaction with his fans on social media to promote the film, the way he spices up everything. His fans have waited for a long time for this film. The film has been in the making for a long time, then it show a glimpse and disappeared. A trailer came out, teased and than it had been stalled for a year. But then it saw the big release on 25th January, Shahrukh compensated his fans. He went that extra mile saving the film from smelling stale, the excitement was there, he did everything to hype it. He risked a train journey, there was chaos and then the release came and the fans gave a thumbs up, and the nod meant it was worth the wait.

“It’s been two and a half years since (producer) Ritesh Sidhwani and (director) Rahul Dholakia came to with RaeesI am happy it has released well and that everybody has liked it,” says Shahrukh Khan. From where he learnt all these business skills. SRK says”This we have learnt from this Sindhi papad, Ritesh (Sidhwani) is our businessman. I don’t know business; I have just made the film. He has done the business part of it.” His producer Ritesh Sidhwani says, there is no better better businessman than Shahrukh.

“Yes, I don’t know acting, I only know how to do business,” smiles Shahrukh.

“The idea of business in this film is do whatever is good for the business but don’t harm anyone in the process. We should apply that in our lives too.” – Shahrukh Khan

Well, does he really believe so? Hrithik Roshan’s Kabbil seemed like a bit of collateral damage. Trade analysts say, Kaabil would have done much better if Raees would not have released on the same day. But then, no one knows what went between negotiations and conspired.

On box office comparison King Khan says he won’t like to compare.

“Every film has its own business. We can’t start comparing. It is not right to measure all the films in the same way. But having said that, this film has its own business and at this point of time, it is better than what we had imagined. Why should I compare it with the last big hit like Dangal or Sultan, which are much bigger hits than perhaps this film can ever be? We know that. We know this film has a limit and it can’t go beyond that.” – Shahrukh Khan

When Nawazuddin was asked how he felt killing him on screen, he said, “I felt very bad.”

Shah Rukh promptly replied, “It did not feel like he was feeling bad. I told him many times Nawaz bhai, thoda dookhi dikhna but he said no.”

Nawaz then said, “I felt bad because just before shooting him, he was on another level. It was a great moment and I wanted to see him like that for some more time. I shot him earlier (than I wanted to).”

In the film, Raees Alam is a don, who becomes a politician. So will Shahrukh ever join politics in real life?

“I am acting and producing films, what more do you want me to do? If I do everything, I will die,” Shah Rukh said, sounding irritated. “I don’t know that job, I don’t want to do learn or do it. For the last time, I am a hero, an actor. It has been 25 years proving I am an actor.”

Fatima Sana Shaikh And Sanya Malhotra’s Dangal With Shahrukh Khan On Twitter

Do you know that Aamir Khan‘s Dangal girls Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra are big Shahrukh Khan fans! Yes, that’s true. And they had a dangal with Shahrukh on twitter. So the story goes like this. A few days back, Sanya, who played Babita Kumari Phogat in Dangal took to her Instagram page to post a video that shows her recreated version of Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Mitwa’ from his film ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’. The video was apparantly shot by Dangal‘s director Nitesh Tiwari and that video was brought to Shahrukh’s notice by SRK fans in Cuttack, Odisha. On seeing King Khan’s response to Sanya’s video, Fatima Sana Shaikh, who essayed the role of Geeta Kumari Phogat, jumped into the story without any hesitation. When it comes to Shahrukh, hesitation is the last concern. And she showed her envy by writing on social media”yeh dekh ne se pehle main Marr kyun nahi gaee? Sanya I am disowning you!”

Let’s check out what happened!

Bollywood Red Shahrukh Khan On Hollywood Plans Raees Battery Nahi Bolneka Baniye Ka Dimaag aur Miyan Bhai Ki Daring Udi udi jaye patang

Shahrukh Khan’s Hollywood Plans Are A Bit Different From Priyanka’s And Deepika’s

Suprestar Shahrukh Khan‘s promotion of his film Raees is in full swing and it has been a unique journey for the actor as well as his fans. The actor has interacted with his fans like never before using the social platform like no one has used before. In a recent interview, when asked about his Hollywood plans, Shahrukh Khan said ‘My dream is to make one film in India which world loves’. King Khan was on Wednesday promoting Raees in the NCR alongside actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. When Bollywood other Bollywood actors are all set to count as many films as they can do in Hollywood, superstar Shahrukh Khan thinks the other way around as he believes in making just one film that is loved by the people all over the world.

“My dream has been very small and my dream is to make that one film in India which the world loves as much as the biggest hits in India. If I do it as a producer, as an actor, as a light boy, as a spot boy, as a cameraman, whatever I just want to make that one film for India,” SRK told ANI in an exclusive interview.

When asked about Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone‘s Hollywood career, the 51-year-old actor said, “Full appreciation for Deepika and Priyanka, I think what they have done is amazing as a stepping stone to a lot of actors and actresses to move towards Hollywood.”

Rahul Dholakia’s directorial Raees, which also stars Pakistani actress Mahira Khan apart from Shahrukh and Nawazuddin, was released yesterday.

Review : Anupama Chopra
Site : Film companion

The trouble is that Rahul is trying to create a gritty crime drama but he is also upholding the myth of the superstar Shah Rukh Khan. So the character must walk a tightrope and somehow be a noble badassThe best way to enjoy Raees then is to manage expectations first. This is an uneven film. In places, you will applaud and whistle. But you might also find yourself utterly exhausted. Still, as the girl in Dangal so memorably put it: Shah Rukh ko na nahi bolte. Paap lagta hai.

On the whole, RAEES is a sure-shot hit. To state that SRK is sensational would be an understatement. The love, adulation and stardom that he attained in his early films will be showered on him yet again in RAEES. A few more factors contribute too: Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s winning act, the aimed-at-masses written material and of course, the gripping finale. As far as the BO is concerned, there’s no stopping this one. An outright winner. Just don’t miss it!

On the whole, Raees will turn out to be a comfortable winner at the ticket windows. Despite a routine story, it has a lot of masala for the audience to keep them satisfied. Business in the first five-day weekend will be phenomenal. Single-screen cinemas will see surging crowds of the kind not seen too often these days.

Review : Saibal

Ratings : 3/5

 Harking back to the days of the anti-hero of the pre-Shah Rukh Khan era, Raees is a gangster saga with a contemporary spin. It takes recourse to subtle sleights of new-age style to compensate for what it lacks in terms of thematic essence and narrative pace. It makes a fair fist of the palpably onerous task. Shah Rukh shrugs off his defining starry mannerisms, embraces physical attributes and accessories designed to convey an air of to-hell-with-the-world insouciance, and becomes an effective anchor for a film that hinges overly on his box office clout to carry it across the finishing line.

Review : Sai Suresh
Site : Rediff
Ratings : 2.5/5

 It is a story whose denouement is clear almost as soon the film rolls, and yet, if you sit through the film it is only to see the superstar play a character he has never done. So fatally flawed that even the redeeming features are not enough. It sure is a very bold Shah Rukh Khan who has stepped out of his comfort zone. Will the audience do so, too?

Review : Shubhra Gupta

Ratings : 2.5/5

Shah Rukh Khan returns in and as Raees , a golden hearted mobster who does bad things for a good cause. It is a role constructed to grab back his pole position, and to that end Shah Rukh Khan strains at fulfilling every single point of the In and As trope. He sings and dances, he fights and romances: he also tries to fulfil the outlines of a character. And that’s where the film gets stuck, between the two stools of restraint and full blown tamasha

Review By : Sarit Ray
Site : Hindustan Times

Raees is a typical ’80s potboiler. Disturbingly, like commercial cinema from that period, the moral compass is a bit off Yet, the problem is fundamental: the writing is shoddy and unoriginal. And by the time it wades into certain true events, it is left with too little time and meaning. Raees perhaps works only as an SRK showcase. But we’ve seen many of those already.

Review By : Nihit Bhave
Site : Times Of India
Ratings : 3.5/5

The first half is well-paced; it draws you in and makes you root for the bootlegger; Majmudar’s one-liners and the music whet your appetite and the Laila Main Laila sequence ups the ante. But the second half plunges into a weird Robin Hood zone where the antihero’s morals are suddenly defibrillated and he becomes a messiah. The movie takes a rough path there on, and the long runtime makes the ride bumpier. The movie can feel a bit long, but if you’re going for a great Shah Rukh performance and some good ol’ popcorn-entertainment, it might just ‘raees’ to the occasion.

Ratings : 3.5/5

 The key element to Raees’ story is to keep the audience hooked and it pretty much works here. The film shifts from politics, to romance and action seamlessly, thus keeping a Bollywood fan entertained. Raees is a paisa-wasool entertainer for massy Bollywood fans! A 3.5/5 for this one. Raees is certainly a one-time watch. With Shah Rukh Khan in lead, many may not need me telling them to watch it. Also, Nawaz is a complete show-stealer here!

Full of tightly-choreographed action sequences and a brilliantly written script, Raees finally marks the beginning of good movies in 2017. While the ending might seem a bit stretched to some audiences, Shahrukh will still manage to pull at your heart-strings.For those caught in the dilemma of whether to see Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil or this film first, we would recommend booking your tickets (if theatres aren’t already full) for Raees.

Ratings : 2/5

Raees‘ is certainly a one time watch but don’t expect the unexpected at all. If you are seeking a plot with enough twists then you will be disappointed. It’s just the run-of-the-mill ‘chor-police’ chase, which you must have seen infinite times in the past. Strongly recommended for Shah Rukh Khan fans.
