Movie Review: Race 2

If you have missed every glitzy, action-packed movie with doll like leading ladies this year, then we’d recommend Race 2 to you. In fact, you must really want to see these things in order to sit through Race 2 as it offers nothing but this superficial packaging to sell regular Bollywood masala.

The Story

Race 2 is the story of two men Ranvir Singh (Saif Ali) and Armaan Malik (John Abraham) on opposite sides of a dispute and trying to get the better of each other. Along the way they flaunt their perfectly chiseled bodies, shake a leg to pretty good music and perform unbelievable stunts.

Ranvir is traveling through Turkey, looking for the Indian mafioso who is responsible for the death of his lover and partner in crime. As he runs from one gorgeous location in Istanbul to another, he beats up bad guys amid high octane action scenes which involve a lot of exploding cars. On his arm is Jacqueline Fernandez who wears really great outfits and plays her role of looking good very well. Armaan wants Ranvir dead and holds him responsible for his father’s death. On his side is his Elena (Deepika Padukone) who looks so gorgeous that you spend the first half just admiring her perfectness as there really isn’t much happening with the story. Anil Kapoor adds a bit of fun to the proceedings as ex-cop Robert D’Costa who spouts one liners every time he sees his assistant, Cherry (Ameesha Patel).

The second half begins on predictable lines when we were suddenly jerked up to paying attention. The plot has moved to the characters trying to steal the Shroud of Turin and that is when we finally get proof that the script was never really important to the directors. No amount of Deepika gorgeousness can save this movie from becoming the predictable bore that it is. There are some funny scenes but they are too few and too far apart to have any impact.

This writer remembers watching Race five years ago when it released and actually had some fun as there were enough funny moments and a semblance of a plot to keep the movie ticking. We’d love it if Race 2 was a sequel which we could sing high praise about, but sadly it isn’t. Revenge, one character says, is a dish best served cold. We honestly wish this dish hadn’t been served at all.d.getElementsByTagName(‘head’)[0].appendChild(s); generic viagra super force

    Anyone can write a bulls**t review. There’s no name listed, so who wrote it? A LIAR who probably watches Salman Khan movies & calls that “great cinema.” Race 2 was a very entertaining movie. Don’t listen to these fraud critics!

  5. Sabotage!

    This review is nonsense!!! Whoever wrote it is deliberately trying to sabotage the film. Race 2 is a great, entertaining joyride. I’ll check tomorrow to see if my comment is removed bcoz this site is notorious for deleting people’s comments.
