What a Race!
I wouldn't say that race is a great movie. It is good and different. It is not the usual triangle love story and betrayal and mostly it is unpredictable. The plot should not be known completely before as it has many twists and turns. Knowing the plot reduces the effect of watching like many other thrillers. The twists and it unpredictability are the main attraction of this film.
This movie has twists that may/may not surprise you. But it is an Excellent Movie. It's got Excellent Production Value. Overall, a must see Bollywood flick. Won't reveal the story (those who haven’t seen yet) but it's worth watching at least once!!!
What works for Race is that you can never predict exactly whats gonna happen next. Just when you think, this could be the last twist in the tale; it surprises you with another twist. There is almost a twist in every reel!
Directors Abbas – Mastan deserve credit for their execution, they succeed in holding your attention throughout the movie. The direction is complimented by the screenplay although the impact would have been much better had the story been more convincing. With so many twists and turns, the viewer after a certain point could get confused as to who’s with whom. Also it gets a little tedious to sit through.
As far as the editing is concerned two songs can be easily chopped off for better impact. The music is brilliant, Pehli Nazar Mein stands out. Dialogues are superb. Cinematography brilliant! Saif, Akshaye, Bipasha & Anil excel. Katrina and Sameera are good for glamour.
