Bollywood's 'Men In White' directorial duo Abbas-Mustan, who have mastered the art of churning out classic thrillers are back with a bang. And, their latest action-packed thriller Race 2, bears all those familiar trademarks of a heady cocktail of betrayal, high-octane action, feisty women combined with twists that will take audiences on adventure-filled rollercoaster ride.
Our reviewer is currently watching the movie in the theatre, and we are here to update you with some tit bits of the movie.
Story so far:
The story of Race 2 starts with Ranveer Singh (Saif Ali Khan)'s girlfriend Sonia (Bipasha Basu)'s murder and the former's quest for revenge from the killer. A depressed and sombre Ranveer heads to Turkey and meets Armaan Malik (John Abraham), a gangster and his hot girlfriend Elena (Deepika Padukone). Armaan is the son of a person who owned horses and used to race but Ranveer destroyed everything. While Ranveer is unaware of this, Arman is hell bent and will go any length to take revenge from Ranveer.
Like Race, even the sequel never reveals all its cards at once. The layers come off one by one, and each time you think you've got it all figured out, another shocker hits you out of the blue. Performances so far: Saif Ali Khan has reprised his role of Ranveer Singh in Race 2. Saif is marvellous all through and his suave, sophisticated, bearded look suits him very much. He makes the best of impression amongst all.
Taking his love for action to a deadly high, John Abraham is back in Race 2 to the zone he reins in, performing some outstanding, heavy-duty action.
What might work really well for Deepika Padukone is her stunningly sexy looks and a svelte hot bod. But, that just isn't enough on Dippy's part. The girl certainly makes an impact with a solid performance and lends her oomph too.
Jacqueline's character gives her ample opportunity to shine in the latter half. And, she made sure to grab her share of attention in the sequel.
Music in Race 2 is a complete let down, when compared to that of it's first installment.
Verdict so far: On the whole, the makers of Race 2 have made sure to keep the audience entertained so far. We hope to see more action, deep secrets and mind-boggling twists further. We'll be back with the final review soon......
