RAEES is the fictitious story of a man named Raees (Shah Rukh Khan), set in early 1980’s to 1990’s Gujarat, India. The film explores how Raees' relationships and meteoric rise helped him build an entire empire from scratch, to make him the single most powerful man in the state. Less of a gangster but more of an impresario, Raees gains popularity, a cult following and most importantly the public's trust by demonstrating entrepreneurial flair, unfettered determination to achieving his goals and ironically a heart of gold. His layered character traits encapsulates an inimitable blend of personas, making him revered, loved and feared. Always thinking ahead of the curve and using revolutionary ideas of management which were unheard of during his time, but are now doctrines for students, Raees eliminates every opposition that comes his way. However, his downfall will be crossing paths with the no-nonsense police officer Majmudar, whose sole reason for existence is the elimination of crime. What ensues next is a tumultuous battle between the two, which forms a key defining element of the film’s narrative.(CBFC/DIL/2/20/2017-MUM)

There are rumours that the gang have recently moved their operational headquarters to KL. The cartel is headed by the dreaded, Singhania. But what many people do not know, is that the business is truly managed by his trusted lieutenant, Don. A man who lives life on the edge, Don is constantly expanding the size of his empire while evading arrest or death at the hands of his enemies, both withinand outside the law. Fearless, cunning and ruthless, he is unstoppable in his pursuit of absolute power. His Chief Pursuer is an Indian Police Officer Narcotics, DCP Desilva. He is a man who has sworn to put an end to the nexus of evil and knows that in capturing Don lies the key to unlock this puzzle. And one day, he succeeds. Don is captured and Desilva puts his plan into action. Unknown to even his own department, Desilva has recruited and trained a man who is a spitting image of Don. His name is Vijay. Vijay infiltrates the cartel and manages to give Desilva all the information he needs to bring it down. But in a bizarre twist of fate, Desilva is killed during a raid and the secret that Don is infact Vijay, a police informer, is buried with him. The only people who realise that he is infact an imposter, are the members of Don's cartel. And they want their revenge. Vijay manages to escape and is now on the lookout for the one last piece of evidence that can get him out of this mess. Helping him on this quest are two people. The first is Roma: a young woman, who was working in the gang but only to avenge her brother's death. He had been mercilessly killed by Don when he had decided to leave the gang. The other is Jasjit: the real father of Vijay's adopted son, Deepu, he owes Vijay for having looked after the boy while he was in prison.
