Mumbai: Ajay Devgn's realistic drama - Raid - a film directed by Raj Kumar Gupta which released on Friday last week, has garnered rave reviews from critics. The non-masala film which also stars Saurabh Shukla and Ileana D'Çruz has minted over Rs 23 crores so far.

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film opened to a very mediocre start at the Box Office but word of mouth publicity did wonders to its performance in the first two days.

On Saturday, Adrash tweeted:

"After an ordinary start in morning shows, #Raid jumped post noon onwards... Evening/night shows saw super growth... A double digit start for a non-masala, realistic film is heartening... Strong word of mouth should boost numbers on Sat and Sun... Fri ₹ 10.04 cr. India biz. (sic)."

Later, on Sunday, he tweeted: "#Raid shows a WONDERFUL 38.04% GROWTH on Day 2... Strong word of mouth is resulting in enhanced footfalls and BO numbers... Biz on Sun should be SUPER-STRONG too... Fri 10.04 cr, Sat 13.86 cr. Total: ₹ 23.90 cr. India biz.(sic)."

Set in the backdrop of India in the 1980s, the film is based on one of the most high profile raids the country has ever seen.

As Amay Patnaik, Deputy Commisioner of Income Tax, in Lucknow, Ajay will impress you. The actor has proved his versatility time and again and his performance in Raid will add a new feather in his cap.

It showcases the bravery and courage of a fearless Income Tax officer who is put on a mission to confront a very powerful man addressed as Tauji in Lucknow.
