Raid is based on real life income tax raids conducted in the Eighties. Ajay Devgn plays Amay Patnaik, an honest income tax official. The film is directed by Raj Kumar Gupta.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Raid 3.5 stars out of 5. "Ajay Devgn's brooding presence, which shores up film, is reminiscent of the actor's Najaayaz and Zakhm days. Raid delivers riveting fare without resorting to too many standard Bollywood tics," he wrote.
Ahead of the film's release, Ajay Devgn had screened Raid for his wife Kajol, son Yug and other family members. Both Kajol and Yug reviewed the film.
Here's their verdict.
