Race: Worth a one time see

In order to make a movie successful in today's world, there are certain ways. One of the most important ways is for it to be a hit in the first week - with the number of shows on display during the first week, the movie can make a large amount of movie in the first week. And Race got lucky. For 2 weeks before Race, there was no movie released, generating a huge amount of pent-up demand. In addition, the school boards for 10th and 12th class had just got over, and a new movie would be totally irresistible. And of course, you had the promos promising lots of action, hot stars, plenty of skin, and songs that were played on the radio repeatedly, generating yet more demand.
With all these factors, did the movie actually cooperate ? Well, I would say that just the story and the twists and turns of the movie make it worth watching once, but after that would get difficult. But I never did understand the reason for the movie having the name of race; there are horse races, and a final race (that somehow did not really impress); the rest of the movie was about intrigue and betrayal. So this was the first question I asked my spouse after the movie - why this name ?

Race Hindi Movie

The movie has an impressive pedigree. The movie is produced by Kumar S. Taurani, Ramesh S. Taurani and directed by the action director duo of Abbas-Mastan; further the movie stars currently hot stars such as Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif, and Sameera Reddy. Music is by Pritam and lyrics by Sameer. So nothing could possibly go wrong, right ? Well, hold onto the champagne. Methinks the directors have tried too much.
So what you have is a fast movie, with an incredible amount of twists and turns in the story. In fact, there were a couple of times in the movie where I got surprised by what happened - I was expecting something else to happen and I got a real surprise. So, in that way, the surprise element was there throughout. However, one also got the feel that the director over-did this, since there was also a feeling that the twists and turns were put in just to increase the twists and turns. So, for example, the character of Katrina Kaif in the second half suddenly changes, and one cannot understand why.
The movie is about the relationship between 2 brothers - Ranvir Singh and Rajeev Singh. They are essentially very close, with Ranveer Singh (Saif Ali Khan) being the responsible elder brother and Rajeev Singh (Akshaye Khanna) being the alcoholic younger brother. They have a business (horse farm and associated) that is in debt, and need to get money by selling a property. Ranveer can be quite ruthless as exemplified by the way he kills his former jockey or destroys Dalip Tahil, his rival. Ranveer has a very efficient secretary in the form of mini-skirted and devoted Katrina Kaif, and is slowly getting closer to a model Bipasha Basu. To complete the gang, Anil Kapoor is a famous detective, and Sameera Reddy his dumb (and attractive) assistant.
What both brothers do have is an insurance policy worth $100 million to their heirs. When they are not married, they are each others inheritors, but after marriage, the wife becomes the heir. The movie is about everything being a betrayal, nobody being what they seem to be, and best of all, everybody doing whatever they need to make themselves more money. The whole movie works in a conflict mode, whether it be planning for betrayal, or an investigation.

Songs of the movie are decent, with some better, and others not so:

Mujhe mila gaya woh permission
Tere pyaar mein hai woh sensation

Pehli Najar Mein Kaisa Jaadu Kar Diya

Pehli nazar mein
Kaise jaado kar diya
Tera ban baita hai
Mera jiya
Jaane kya hoga
Kya hoga kya pata
Is pal ko milke
Aa jee le zara

Mein hoon yahan
Tu hai yahan
Meri bahon mein aa
Aa bhi ja
O jaan-e-jaan
Dono jahan
Meri bahon mein aa
Bhool Ja aa

O jaan-e-jaan

Har dua mein shamil tera pyaar hai
Bin tere lamha bhi dushwar hai
Dhadhkon ko tujhe se hi darkar hai
Tujhse hai rahtein

Aankhon se pee lene de
Rangein khalayon mein

I think Shaan is the most versatile of all contemporary singers. I found this great site that has all the lyrics from his songs
