The Race franchise has always been about glamour, glitz and high-adrenalin action. The third installment does not fall short of these quintessential offerings. Race 3 is the perfect example of what a typical Bollywood ‘masala’ movie can be. This is where all rationality and logic is thrown out of the window and replaced with a heavy dose of thrill, action and adventure. This is where the movie makers don’t even feel the need to have a strong script, as it is compensated by extravagant film sets, expensive cars, glamorous girls, high-octane action and the superstars themselves.
Race 3 captures the journey of the Singh family, which deals in a range of illegal businesses including illegal arms. The head of the family is Shamsher (Anil Kapoor), who has his step-son Sikandar (Salman Khan) and twins Suraj (Saqib Saleem) and Sanjana (Daisy Shah). Things change dramatically when Jessica (Jacqueline Fernandez) meets Sikandar. The Singh family is rich, but there’s a lot of scheming going on and everyone seems to be guided by their own ulterior motives. The story loops into various twists and turns, which are peppered with car chases, combat scenes, catfights, and explosions.
Race 3 can be a good watch if you like high-octane action sequences. There’s a certain amount of suspense as well, which is revealed towards the end of the movie. The story, however, is weak and there’s no punch in it. It is like the masala without an adequate amount of salt. There’s nothing to talk about the dialogues as well and some of them are so lame that the internet is going ROFL over them. A perfect example is ‘Our business is our business, none of your business’, which is already being trolled heavily on social media.
Race 3 fails to live up to the expectations of their fans, as the intrigue is definitely missing from this one. However, its star studded cast and high-octane action do manage to keep the audience interested to a certain extent.
