Ajay Devgn, Saurabh Shukla and Ileana D'Cruz starrer Raid has opened up to good numbers at the box-office. As per early estimates, the film has done a business of Rs 9.75 Crore on Day 1.
Talking of the reviews, the film has got mixed reviews. While a few critics have found it an average work, others have appreciated Ajay for being the saviour.
The film is a pale shadow of director Rajkumar Gupta's earlier work. SpotboyE.com editor Vickey Lalwani gave the film two and a half stars. He wrote, "There are no peaks and valleys, there are no twists and turns in the story, and as you settle down with your popcorn, you hope that the film will peak in the second half. But guess what! It ends so abruptly that you can clearly feel that Gupta didn't know what to do after a certain point."
All said and done, Raid is still far from being labelled as a hit. Let's see if the film picks up through the weekend from here or slips in numbers.
