By Tulsi,

Inspired by the real life raids conducted by IRS in the ‘80s, this Ajay Devgn starrer is a crime drama that also has Ileana D’Cruz, Saanand Verma and Saurabh Shukla as supporting actors. 

The film releases on 16th March, and is a real life story on the country’s political issues and corruption, where Ajay Devgn plays a super-brave cop who conducts these raids. Based in Lucknow, in 1981 to be exact. Let’s check out the music album, shall we?


1. Sanu Ek Pal Chain

Every hero has a heroine, and this super-cop too has his wife who he loves and sings songs with. So, this album starts with a romantic number in the voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan – rehash of the original track Sanu Ek Pal Chain by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan himself. And yes, it’s still as beautiful. Surprisingly, Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’Cruz kind of look good with each other! She plays the worried wife in the film, which is portrayed well in this track. 


2. Nit Khair Manga

Another romantic song, yet again in the voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, though this one is boring as hell. Everything is extra-slow in the video, which also gives me enough time to ponder over Devgn and D’Cruz’s chemistry, making me realise that the only thing they have in common is the D’s in their name. I’m put of already. 


3. Black

The name of this song shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, since the movie’s name is “Raid”. Yes, the song is about black money and all its evils. It’s upbeat but still boring. It feels like I’ve heard this number before, but can’t remember where. This one is sung by Sukhwinder Sing. 


4. Jhuk Na Paunga 

After this song, I am completely done with the actors’ love story and Ajay Devgn’s bravery, the over-dramatic music, and everything else. Not even Papon’s deep voice could save this song. This album deserves to end.


Well, let’s just say – Thank God it was a short one!
