Sweta Kaushal | Hindustan Times: 2.5/5
Ajay Devgn is in top form, but the film is not thrilling enough. With a tighter editing, slightly less focus on the wannabe love story and a lesser dose of melodrama, this Ajay Devgn-starrer could have been a gripping thriller ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 3.5/5
Raid is a film that caters to public sentiment against black money and corruption. All in all, this one’s right on the money ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1.5/5
The Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla starrer is overlong and tepid. In all this to-ing and fro-ing, background music blaring to make up for the lack of real drama, even a terrific actor like Saurabh Shukla is left floundering ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3.5/5
Raid delivers riveting fare without resorting to too many standard Bollywood tics ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3.5/5
Raid evokes the excitement in a very controlled time. The Tom & Jerry play between Ajay Devgn & Saurabh Shukla, it makes you laugh throughout, very smartly written dialogues ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3/5
Devgn doesn't clobber a single soul in Raid. His portrayal of Income Tax Commissioner Amay Patnaik relies on his firm footing as a man of consequence to pitch itself as a tribute to the IT department's unsung heroes. It's the most I've enjoyed watching Ajay Devgn in a while ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 3.5/5
Ajay Devgn’s brooding intensity, Raj Kumar Gupta’s gripping direction add up to a winner. Raid is not regular Bollywood. What it is though is thoroughly entertaining ... Full Review

Meena Iyer | DNAIndia: 4/5
Ajay Devgn, Ileana D’cruz’s social drama is pertinent. Watch Raid because despite the corruption around us, we still believe we can win the war against black money hoarders. Also, watch it for Ajay Devgn’s intensity. He is sincere, relentless and doesn’t blink even once ... Full Review

Rohit Bhatnagar | Deccan Chronicle: 3/5
Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla's face-off is worth watching. Director Rajkumar Gupta makes an interesting chase between the protagonist and antagonist ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3/5
In short, the dramatic scenes between Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla alone are worth the price of the ticket. Watch the film if you like manly heroes quitely going about their jobs and villains who can be gentlemen at times ... Full Review

Parag Chhapekar | Jagran: 2/5
उम्मीदों पर खरी नहीं उतरी अजय देवगन की ‘रेड’. कुल मिलाकर ‘रेड’ एक साधारण फ़िल्म है जिससे काफी उम्मीदें की जा रही थीं। अगर आप अजय देवगन के हार्डकोर फैन हैं तो आप यह फ़िल्म एक बार देख सकते हैं। अन्यथा ना भी देखें तो कोई विशेष फर्क नहीं पड़ने वाला ... Full Review

Anita Iyer | Khaleej Times: 2/5
Ajay Devgn is good at playing an officer taking over the system, be it in Singham or Gangaajal but Raid pales in comparison. Maybe, it is a film for his fans who love him in this avatar but it is high time he reinvent himself ... Full Review

RJ Alok | Aaj Tak: 4/5
फिल्म की कहानी जबरदस्त है और राजकुमार गुप्ता ने रितेश शाह के साथ मिलकर जो स्क्रीनप्ले लिखा है वो बहुत ही अच्छा है ... Full Review

Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Gulf News: 2.5/5
Ajay Devgn drama a timid affair. The film, directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, wavers when it tries to marry two disparate genres ... Full Review

Madhuri | Filmi Beat: 3/5
शानदार परफॉर्मेंस और दमदार डायलोग से भरी टिपिकल अजय देवगन फिल्म है रेड ... Full Review

IANS | Sify: 4/5
A powerful film on combating corruption. A film so taut and clenched, so caustic and brimming with political sarcasm that you wonder where the director was hiding himself for so many years ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 2.5/5
Ajay Devgn Starrer is Promising But Runs Out of Steam Before The Finish Line ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 4/5
RAID is a realistic and hard-hitting thriller that keeps you hooked right till the end ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 2.5/5
The recreation of the supposedly longest ever income tax raid could have been far more tight, taut and thrilling than it turns out to be ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 3/5
What helps is that Devgn is restrained in his performance, and Shah and Gupta resist the temptation to give in to too much jingoism ... Full Review

Samrudhi Ghosh | India Today: 3/5
The rivetting battle between Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla makes the journey to the finish worth your while ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: 2/5
Raid is a repetitive film, with a straight-laced, dull protagonist ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 3/5
Almost, but not quite – this movie’s moral compass is in the right place. Raid is clear on its rights and wrongs ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 3.5/5
Raid does an honest job of showing all that's wrong with modern India. Do catch this at a theatre near you ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 3/5
After A Few Stumbles, The Supense Thriller Lands On Its Feet. The film tries to be a taut police procedural but is filled with unnecessary romantic interludes, contrived narrative twists and dialoguebaazi ... Full Review

Anuradha Shrivastava | India TV: 3/5
Ajay Devgn’s compelling act and Saurabh Shukla’s performance make this an unalloyed delight ... Full Review

Economic Times: 3/5
The quintessential Bollywood thriller brimming with political sarcasm. It is remarkable how willingly Ajay Devgn's character lets Saurabh Shukla chew up every scene in which they're together ... Full Review

Tiasa Bhowal | Financial Express: 3.5/5
Rajkumar Gupta takes the director's chair after a span of four years and what he produces is no-nonsensical riveting drama which keeps the viewers gripped till the end ... Full Review

IANS | Business Standard: 2.5/5
A one-dimensional tale that hinges on a weak plot. While the first half of the film is engrossing, the second half turns into a comic exposure of serious events ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 3.5/5
Magnificently Casted, Relevant and Realistic ... Full Review

Ajit Duara | Open Magazine: 3/5
It is an uneven contest in ‘Raid’, yet the actor Saurabh Shukla plays ‘Tauji’ with invention and skill. He is the star of the show, and bete noire to Ajay Devgn ... Full Review

Suparna Sharma | Asian Age: 2.5/5
Raid is so focused on creating scenes where the star can shine, and chamkile dialogue that do jai-jai-kar of the star, that it compromises other characters that held promise, and even the story ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 3/5
What could have been a crisp, engaging narrative becomes a ‘not bad’ thriller because of uneven pace. The 15-20 minutes on song and romance could’ve been used in other ways to highlight sacrifices made by families of honest government employees ... Full Review
