According to trade analyst Girish Johar, the credits for the success of the film go to Ritesh Shah and Ajay Devgn. While Shah is the man behind Raid’s tautly written script and screenplay, only an actor with the caliber of Devgn could do justice to a powerful role like that of Amay Patnaik.
Raid, is the story of a fearless Income Tax officer Amay Patnaik (Devgn) who conducts a raid on one of the city’s most high-profile and well-connected politician-cum-businessman (Shukla). Ileana D’Cruz plays the role of Patnaik’s wife who stands by him through thick and thin.
