Abbas-Mustan’s chilling Action Thriller, Race, completes 9 years today. Released on the 21st of March,2008, the film is as enjoyable today as it was then. Raking 65 crores at the domestic box-office, it was one of the Highest-Grossing Films of that year and almost revived the careers of Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna.
Known for making High-Octane Action Potboilers, Race in 2008 had all the ingredients one associate with the director duo.
Glamorous Leading ladies- Check
Exotic Locales-Check
Lavish Songs- Check
Multiple Twists- Double check
Every time you thought you had figured out the plot, a new twist was thrown into surprise and shock you.
Besides, who can forget the fruit loving cop RD, played hilariously by Anil Kapoor?
The sequel may have been underwhelming and insipid, but Race remains a thoroughly smashing joyride.
With their last film Machine sinking without a trace, here’s hoping the directors get their groove back and RACE towards the top again.
