It is expected that SRK’s movie will enjoy its beginning days to the fullest while Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam starrer Kaabil will enjoy in the long run. Raees is based in the 80s and 90s of Gujarat. The story revolves around a ruthless and cunning bootlegger named Raees (Shahrukh). He built his entire empire from scratch. On the other hand, Hrithik’s movie is a love story and revenge drama. Critics have stated in their Kaabil reviews that it is probably the best performance ever of Hrithik’s career.
The last minute promotion strategy went wrong for Raees team. The several injuries and deaths which occurred gave the film a negative publicity. However, it is unlikely that the movie’s business will get affected. The negative publicity will be soon overwhelmed by the fan’s enthusiasm. And SRK will enjoy the four day long weekend.
