Raees Trailer: When SRK Sheds His Lover Boy Image


Shah Rukh Khan, as charismatic as he always is, looks absolutely stunning and dynamic in the 90 second trailer of Raees which is scheduled to release on Eid next year.

The trailer opens with numerous alcohol bottles rolling down the road, being thrown in water, wrapped in newspaper and finally covering an entire godown. As you would have guessed by now, the movie is about a Gujarati liquor business and bootlegger. Shah Rukh appears from smoke in the frame later in the trailer; walking down a road with a rod in his hand. Intense background music and the backdrop of a riot add to the intensity, complexity and charm of the movie. Towards the end, a poster reads “Sab unnees, yeh bees hai, humara neta raees hai”, hinting towards the political mafia.

Directed by Rahul Dholakia and starring SRK, Farhan Akhtar, Nawazuddin Siddique and debutant Mahira Khan; the movie is about fame, power and obviously money (Raees-Rich). Though other actors were not present in the trailer, SRK (in and as Raees) is more than enough to attract the audience. It’s a power-packed trailer, that shows a very different side of the “lover boy” Shah Rukh, and would leave you guessing the various aspects of the movie.

Will the movie be able to deliver as per the viewer’s expectations, only time would tell. But the trailer has sure cast its magic.
