DON'T RUN THIS RACE!

RACE 2 CHOMPS ON FRUIT AND CHEWS YOUR BRAINS

Yeah I'm coming back to the race…Just gonna chew and make you see…Make you see...

They did warn us... warn us of chewing our brains. Perhaps they should have mentioned permanent damage somewhere in those ominous lyrics of the song. Because once you have run, cross that, just sat through this new Race, you will become one of those fruits Anil Kapoor is chomping all the time. Fruit without the nuts that is.

Allah duhaai hai…Mushkil rihaai hai…

Race 2 = Stress x 2. It's like this extra-terrestrial hodgepodge about two men who are friends when they meet and foes when they cheat; two women who are beloved when they meet and betrayed when they cheat; and that fruitarian cop and his fruity assistant who are fruitless whether they meet or cheat.

Tell me if you ready!Can you take the pace?

Naa bhai naa. Sorry, naa bhais (Abbas-Mustan) naa. Aao twist naa karein! When you're going to overturn every friendship formed and every partnership paired every two minutes, who will possibly put money on your race? As the look on the faces of every actor in your cast suggests, even they weren't sure which side they were on. In his jhakaas days, Anil Kapoor would have simply said: "Mujhe toh teri waat lag gayee!"

But now he just masticates fruits and reprimands his lady Friday: "Sir, Sir mat kaho naa, juicer kaho!" And when that lady is Ameesha Patel that juice can't be good for your health.

With the first film, they at least had a ready film to copy from. Roland Joffe's hardly-heard-of Goodbye Lover was Bollywoodised with chase and cheese in Race. This time they only have a template –– that of the first film.


Apart from horse racing and car racing, there's goggles-changing gambling, body-hugging archery, clothes-stripping fencing and skin-gurgling wrestling and by the time that car comes out of the flight with four red parachutes, you have officially become Mary Poppins.So there has to be a party song on a yacht, a seduction song in a club, a scene at the race course, a car race on the streets… "Superhit on my mind!" For an industry besotted for decades with a "hit formula", the Xerox sequel was always going to be "hit formula 2". Cyprus, Istanbul, Turin, Race 2's locations chaaron aur phaele huye hain even if every character in every part of the world watches IndiaTV for Breaking News!

But nothing, absolutely nothing, comes close to the precious exchanges between Mr and Miss Fruit. If early on, Mr Kapoor tells Miss Patel, "Cherry, I don't have time to pop your cherry!", later Miss Patel tells Mr Kapoor after a fruitful romp: "Aap kya khaate hain Sir aur kitna khaate hain!"

When they are not walking in super slo-mo towards the camera or talking in hushed tones meant to make them sound intelligent, every actor is worse than the other. No, not really, you can't possibly challenge that ex-Miss Sri Lanka in this department.

Jaq ge… everyone knows the fruit salad they are in. Like Saif was not even trying to hide his Kareena tattoo. And Deepika… she can now play that body-baring leg-lassoing party girl in her sleep. And poor John… there's that much you can emote when Capsico sauce bottles are being smashed over your head.

The YouTube spoof video that the film's producer Tips took down was 100 times shorter and 100 times more entertaining. And they got the title right –– Disgrace 2!

Movie Review: Race 2

Race 2 is a bimbo film, all horsepower, no brainpower.

January 25, 2013

MUMBAI
Janhavi Samant


Race 2
U/A; Thriller
Dir: Abbas Mastan
Cast: John Abraham, Saif Ali Khan, Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Deepika Padukone, Ameesha Patel

Okay, picture this: a serious game of Flush is on. With the help of some mind-numbing nanochip-body heat technology, Eleena (Deepika Padukone), who is accompanying half-brother casino kingpin Armaan Malik (John Abraham), is able to read the cards of their opponents, redo their sequences on her smartphone and CHANGE her half-brother's cards, with the help of similar body-heat technology, and help him win the round.

All because super-duper billionaire Armaan Malik hates to lose, even at the cost of doing such underhand chhindi chor stuff. Of course, the opponents who play with him every Saturday never ever realise that they have been had.

There are other impressive inventions in this film: a car that flies in the air and lands with the help of four parachutes exactly like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

There is a fancy ring with which Malik taps his beloved wallet chor girlfriend Omeesha's (Jacqueline Fernandez) chats with everybody. There is also a CCTV network in Malik's offices that taps his own incriminating conversations. A pair of dark glasses that help people read thumbprints to guess passwords to high security areas. However, the most impressive invention of the film is its plot. Wah, in its sheer inventiveness to defeat simple common sense, the Race 2 plot is totally epic.

The film revolves around the aforementioned Armaan Malik and Eleena and Tanya, conman Ranveer Singh (Saif Ali Khan), cop-turned-club owner RD (Anil Kapoor) and his bimbette secretary Cherry (Ameesha Patel). Everyone in this group, bar a couple, is suspicious of and is lying, cheating and double-crossing everyone else. And surprisingly, everyone in the group is aware of who is cheating whom. Still, strangely they all continue to do high-stakes business with each other. There is even Godfather Anza (Aditya Pancholi with hair) who, if you double cross, can send you to God to meet your father!
Even for a masala entertainer, the Burmawala Bros have stretched things too far.

The film is based in Turkey, but that's just a flimsy technicality. Where this group operates, there are no laws or law-enforcing agencies. You could drive on the wrong side of the road at killer speed all through the city and not have a single police car track you down. Or a hitman could blast a car in a market and a big chase would follow but still no police car. You could shoot a man in the middle of a crowded discotheque, make him crumple down and people would just keep dancing. You can kill someone in a fighting ring and people would just cheer you.

Performances, phew, the film has more close-ups of cars than faces, so the lesser said the better. Fancy cars whiz past on high speed, alpha men charge and swagger ahead of exploding cars in slow-motion, men and women show off their sculpted bodies while coming out of the sea, or women in bold, bright red lipstick and nailpaint dressed for the ramp, even in a bedroom romp, and everyone talks about some billion-trillion-gazillion Euros worth of deals in vain - Race 2 is a bimbo film, all horsepower, no brainpower

Race 2 Saturday Collection Update. Storming Ahead.

Race 2 has taken humongous start at the box office on Saturday. It is even better and bigger than Friday if we just compare Morning Shows. It has finally shaken up the lukewarm box office of 2013. Race 2 has registered 50% occupancy on Friday Morning shows, whereas on Saturday it is around 70%+. This is extremely good news for Race 2.

Today being a National Holiday because of Republic Day, collections is definitely going to shoot up. Audiences is coming in numbers to watch this action-thriller. Already many shows are sold out in advance for the later half of the day.

Race 2 has collected a huge 15 crore nett on Opening Day. Though it is too early to make any predictions, but as per early trends Saturday collection should touch 17-18 crore nett mark at the box office if all goes well. For a 20 crore nett mark it will need good jump and sustainability for the whole day. That type of collection can't be ruled out with such wide screen release. Happy days are back for Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and rest all who are associated with the film and also the box office industry. It is by far the biggest opener for all those who are involved with the film.
