Race Gadhon ki,
Race audience ki,
My head is aching yaaa.....
Ye movie time ki barbaadi hai...abbas mastan ni baasi kadi pakai hai....
(Remix of the title song of Race)
This race is all about finding the exit door. A movie that is high on style, stubble and skirts and low on everything else.Abbas Mastan the thriller titans give us a half baked enterprise that can never raise its game. Amateurish dialogues , when did cockroach become a gaali? The movie is about two horse racing brothers, Saif and Akshaye, one committed to winning and other who is a drunkard wanting to win at all odds. So Akshaye hatches a plan of duping his brother and polishing him off in a Baazigar style building drop (can we have better ideas please). To do this he also involves Bips who is Saif's flame by saying he will leave daru if she becomes joru.
Akshaye actually pouts more than he plans and his face twisting is the least of our worries. The bigger worry is the senseless plot twists which are almost inexplicable at times and are hardly suspenseful. The movie livens to some extent with the entry of a fruit eating detective played by Anil Kapoor and his dumb secretary Sameera Reddy who investigates Saif's death with as much seriousness as a music show judge.
Katrina Kaif and Bipasha take turns in looking out of sorts and mouthing dialogues with disinterest. Bipasha even scores low in the looks department with bad hair days and ill-fitting costumes. Katrina has almost no role in the first half except for getting papers signed by Saif from time to time.
I am reminded of the famous Rangeela dialogue to summarize this movie where Aamir Khan asks the restaurant owner ' kya re sirf table khurchi pe kharch kiya kya?'. Similarly Abbas Mastan have spent a lot of Taurani money on horses, blowing up expensive cars and a good star cast. The rest of it they completely forgot.
