Actor Ajay Devgn is back with a bang and outshines as a fearless Income Tax (IT) Commissioner who is all set to bring down the deadliest man of Lucknow in the crime drama, Raid.

Ajay is known for his versatility and has proved out time and again about his finesse as an actor but the fans idolise the actor the most when it comes to showcasing realism in his films, which many also regard as his forte.

Be it Gangajal or Drishyam, the actor has stole the show with his performance and in his upcoming film, Raid, his performance is again expected to be superlative.

Directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, Raid is based on true events, which depicts the story of an income tax raid that took place in Lucknow in 1981.

The trailer itself has generated quite a buzz among the fans for its intriguing storyline, powerful dialogues and of course the show stealer performance from Ajay Devgn.

Raid’s trailer has crossed more than one million views and the fans can’t help but to appreciate the actor and the film in the comment sections.

Here is a breakdown of the key points from the trailer of the film:

Ajay will be seen as somewhat similar to his character from Drishyam— the actor won’t be seen as the typical tough guy he has essayed in a number of films like Singham, Action Jackson and Golmaal.

Saurabh Shuka’s as the bad guy will emerge among the greatest villains of all time.

Ileana D’Cruz as the pillar of support in Ajay’s life will be impressive.

Set in the backdrop of Lucknow, the film will have some authenticity attached to it, be it the dialogues or the lingo of the city.

Last but not the least; it is one man’s effort to bring down corruption in one of the most ‘dangerous’ states of India at that time.
