One must then watch Race 2 for Saif, who with his polished dialogue deliveries and smart one-liners, Abraham, who has played a scheming businessman with aplomb and of course for all the three ravishing ladies who also know how to act.

Race 2 is a perfect sequel made by Abbas-Mustan. One would not guess right till the end, as who is with whom, and who is double crossing whom. And that's the real charm of Race! Don't compare it with the original one and you would be entertained throughout. Let your Race begins in theatres!

To sum it up, Race 2 has enough masala to satisfy the masses. The high octane action, glamour and grandeur cover up the flaws of the film.

Get ready for jobs that 'blow', bare-bods, chains, fists, fruits (of passion) et al. Kinky, huh? Not really. This is what goes into a high-flying, testosterone ride called Race 2, where everything blows up - from beastly cars to bronzed beautism.

At some point in the film, Deepika says “I can recognize that money making expression anywhere” and to that I’d say, Abbas Mustan have a big money maker on their hands with Race 2.

One of the most stylish movies made in the recent past, Race 2 is a treat for fans of the thriller genre

Overall, Race 2 turns out to be a film which pretty much fits into the franchise template and doesn’t intend at digressing from that. While that is good from the core thought perspective, one can clearly sense that the kind of water tight treatment that Race had boasted of is missing in the sequel.

On a whole, Race 2 is one film which has all the trappings of a decent thriller. Stunning actors, great locations and some suspense elements are sure shot plus points. On the flip side, striking similarity to Race, and a dodgy second half completely spoil the fun.

Race 2 is all about show-offs, wannabes and a few gorgeous sidekicks. Hence, it's definitely worth giving a miss. I would give this a half point extra for the breathtaking 'cage act' by John, hence two-and-half on the whole for this lame sequel.

I’ll go with 2.5 stars for this action drama which has nothing new to offer except a cast of half a dozen of glamorous stars. Just give a try as it’s a Republic Day weekend or else wait for the next big flick to hit the theatres.

On the whole, RACE 2 has a rocking first half, glam and glitz, great looking men and women, spectacular locales, extravagant making, adrenaline pumping action and of course, a solid brand that's gonna make moviegoers flock the cineplexes initially.

In all, ‘Race 2’ is a grand display of money. The adrenaline-pumping action is the plus point of the film, but too much of that does no good to it. Two and a half stars from me for this Friday’s ‘expensive’ release.

Race 2 is smart in the way it repeats its tested cliches, although the suspense quotient is certainly not the brightest you have seen.

watch it only if you are a fan of Abbas Mustan. Else, run far from Race 2.

Rating: 1.5/5
is Race 2 on your mind? Get rid of it pronto. This is a wreck of a movie strictly for action junkies who might be looking for a feverish two-and-a-half-hour ride that is far more giddy than heady.

The screenplay, by Shiraz Ahmad, is all fluff. It’s a revenge story with a twist in almost every ten minutes. Everyone knows what the other person is planning. There’s a lot of backstabbing, cheating and lies going around.

Rating: 1.5/5
Race 2' looks exactly like 'Race'. Which may have been intentional because plush locations and pretty playthings and buff men are very much Abbas Mustan trademarks.
