It’s a story about his rise and his relationships, which help him become the single most powerful man in the state. Less of a gangster but more of an impresario, Raees gains popularity and trust through his sharp, entrepreneurial and ruthless business mind. His unfettered determination, guided by a heart of gold, earns him a cult following.
His character encapsulates a distinct and unique blend of personas, making him revered, loved and feared. Always thinking ahead of the curve and using revolutionary ideas of management which were unheard of during his time, but are now doctrines for students, Raees eliminates every opposition that comes his way. However, his downfall will be crossing paths with the no-nonsense police officer Majmudar, whose sole reason for existence is the elimination of crime. What ensues next is a tumultuous battle between the two, forming a key defining element of the film’s narrative.
