Raid movie review


Vikram Prabhu is committed to maintain law and order in the city, even if it entails getting his hands dirty in the pursuit of justice.

During this journey to establish justice, Vikram Prabhu has to face the wrath of several gangsters.

Though, he emerges victorious in most of the clashes, he face a personal loss.

He vows to take revenge and what happens next forms the rest of the story.


Director Karthi has presented a cat-and-mouse game between a cop and gangsters.

While, the initial premise of the movie is interesting, the plot loses steam as the movie progresses.

Vikram Prabhu is impressive in the character of a strict cop. He is intense and is convincing in his role.

He shines in the action sequences and could have done in the emotional portions.

Sri Divya’s role is functional and is impressive in the little screenspace that she gets.

Rishi Rithvik as the antagonist is good, but there is scope for improvement.

Rest of the cast including Ananthika, Velu Prabhakaran, Danie have all done their part well.

Cinematographer Kathiravan has captured the proceedings in a captivating manner.

Background score by Sam CS is promising. Rest of the technical aspects are passable.

Rating: 3.2/5
