3.5 Very Good


It requires guts to choose a subject and genre called 'Thriller' as its necessary to keep the audiences glued to their seats and if you are best on it then it should be 'edge of the seat'. But the big question is whether Race succeeds in doing so ... well yes ... and it does big time. When it comes to Thriller .. there's only one ..err .. two names that rule Bollywood and thats Abbas Mastaan ... The director duo right from Khiladi to Race now has won hearts of millions ..
About Race, I would say the director duo returns a big time after Humraaz. You cant take off your eyes from the screen for a minute .. there are twists ... and the twists are so good that everytime it comes as a hard shock to the core .. everytime it catches you unaware .. the credit also goes to Screenplay .. Music is another remarkable thing and so is cinematography ... the locales of durban are so breathtaking that you would just utter 'woww' ..
Acting wise .. I found Akshay the best ... I guess he is maturing with each and every movie, Saif was phenominal .. does his job fine .. Anil Kapoor again states that its not age its your work that counts .. he is truly remarkable .. Bipasha oozez and so does Katrina .. you find Sameera sometimes irritating, sometimes interesting.
