sequels always make money but their content is always missing

so unfortunate for the audience who go with such high expectations and end up disappointed while the movie ends up making money!

its like a criminal mind of sequels- they don't put in efforts coz they rely too strongly on the former brand!

lets hope race-2 brings a change!

Bollywood review: 'Race2' just doesn't make the cut

A film about good lookers who journey to various European cities without any real purpose makes for an exhausting watchLOLLOLLOL

By 
  • Sneha May Francis
Published Thursday, January 24, 2013

It's a race, we are told, on numerous occasions, by the two leading heroes and their two gorgeous sidekicks, almost trying to justify why they've taken two-hours-and-thirty-minutes of our lives. Yet, there's never a real sense of what they are racing for. Time, money, babes, or cars? 

There's no urgency in their actions, or dance moves, just pure indulgence in their own chiselled bodies, designer wardrobes, swanky cars and a journey that takes them to several European cities. 

On many levels, a movie that's all fluff and no stuff can be quite exhausting. And, 'Race2' is just that.

It's just a pompous wannabe-thriller that is devoid of any logic.

While its predecessor, the original 'Race', had shown some promise and glimpse of a good plot, 'Race2' steers away from any such attempts, and instead focuses on good looks and charm.

Director duo Abbas-Mastan's 'Race2' sees Ranveer Singh, the winner of the first 'Race', return to strip the cunning Armaan Malik of his riches. His reasons are revealed over time when they finally lock horns atop a crashing flight.

The two ' one a street-fighter who flexed his muscles and became rich, and the other an old suave fighter, who continues to double-cross and win ' fill all their frames by grimacing and plotting against the other. 

But that is not before we are an-hour-and-a-half into the movie. Till then, they are busy seducing their super-hot chicks, showing off their posh cars and designer suits, walking in slow-motion to blaring background score and swaying to many dance tracks. 

It almost makes us wonder if it's a dance title that the two are vying for. That would've been more meaningful than the story churned out by writer Shiraz Ahmed. 

He uses every Hollywood trick in the trade, yet shamelessly claims, in a dialogue no less, that his final feat has not been attempted in international movies. 

He brings in the casino with its rich, sly owners, card games with its cunning winners, bloodied fight clubs, even a history lesson and a stolen treasure. 

Even the lines by Kiran Kotrial aren't clever, and border on inane puns and PJs.

The narrative is botched and inconsistent. A case in point is the placing of a group dance, with all the actors gyrating to a remixed version of the original 'Race' soundtrack, bang in the middle of the thriller.

Saif Ali Khan as the stylish Ranveer is rather tiresome. He lacks charm, wit and acting versatility, and he's got the Botox jabs and an ageing body to blame. Although he attempts to give Ranveer a gripping edge, he's left with more dance moves than action sequences to show off. 

He's often distracted by the women who turn up in itsy-bitsy clothes and croon to some funky songs.

Most unforgivable is his decision to expose his 'Kareena' tattoo. Surely, actors need to be taught to keep their real life separate from their reel image.

John Abraham, on the other hand, is far from menacing as Armaan Malik. There's a hint of his angst in the bloody fight sequence, but apart from that, his ruthlessness is often concealed. He does try though, but his indifference in the character makes it tough for us to take him seriously.

The leggy Deepika Padukone and super-toned Jacqueline Fernandes do what they are supposed to ' look smoking hot. Although Deepika's Alina might've appeared more powerful on paper, it's Jacky's Omisha that's more layered in real.

Anil Kapoor is cracking as the fruit-indulging Robert D'Costa and shares some silly moments with his dim-witted assistant Cherry. It's only their link-up, in the end, that's quite disturbing, but it's hard to take them seriously.

On the whole, this is just a lazy sequel of a famed potboiler that can be watched at home' on a (borrowed) DVD.

the way they were all doing so much action with the cage and swords and what not already gave me a vibe that it would have everything- from body to action to glitz and glamor but they will definitely lose on something which the first one had- SCRIPT! seems dpad's line is actually coming true- it might be a FILAM without script! too soon to judge but reviews are pretty mixed!

Race 2 To Get The Year Going

 

Thursday 24th January 2013 16.00 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

 

The year has disappointed so far with the 12 releases so far biting the dust with the exception of Table No. 21 which did average business but in Mumbai circuit only. This should change tomorrow with the release of Race 2 which should do well at least initially though history will not repeat itself as Race 2008 had the biggest opening day ever when it was released in 2008.

 

The Republic Day holiday on Saturday will mean a strong Saturday and there will also be a lift in collections on Friday evening as next day is a holiday. The collections on Saturday will be very strong and that should ensure a total of around 45 crore nett and even 50 crore nett may be possible depending on opening levels.

 

The downside is the genre has a very short shell life and if appreciation is not there then collections fall very fast with this genre.
