Raees

Well, if you do bother with the film, it’s best to leave your dimaag (baniye ka or otherwise) at home.

The fact that I watched this in a theatre in Kuwait does affect the review. A lot of sequences would have been cut-out, and at present; there is no way for me to determine if those sequences would have made the film better or worse.

Musa and Nawaab – Glorified extras. There was a lot of scope here.

To me, it seemed as if SRK was fulfilling some modelling contract or an ad campaign. This genre usually offers the male lead a huge opportunity to perform and shine. Wasted.

Pramod Pathak, playing the Chief Minister of Gujarat doesn’t fit the role. His outfits (in the film) don’t fit. No screen presence. Pathak’s ‘performance’ is laughable.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui does the best he could with what he was given. That said, he does have the best lines in the film and he delivers them well.

Atul Kulkarni – Not bad.

Mahira Khan has looked much better in her tele appearances. In the film, she looks… well… nothing much to talk about. Same goes for the character. Just another pointless addition to the film.
