Will the twin siblings become successful in their mission or will Sikander’s smartness have an upper – hand?
Opinion = The problem with Bollywood Filmmakers is that, if any of their movie is able to do handsome business at the box office, they immediately convert the essence of the movie, into a franchise. RACE had a very good content at its disposal, with the presence of established actors like Saif Ali Khan, Akshay Khanna, Bipasha Basu, Anil Kapoor and others. But, with every new installment, the quality of the franchise is deteriorating. RACE 2 was just an ‘okay’ kind of movie, which had nothing to boast about. But here, since the launch of the trailer, the movie is highly mocked and criticized on the social media (Remember – Our business is our business, none of your business). It is not a movie, but an assault on your senses, a waste of your time and a reason for your boredom. This year, with movies like 102 NOT OUT, PARMANU, RAAZI, BEYOND THE CLOUDS, OCTOBER, etc, Bollywood is seriously raising its standard on global pedestal. But, Salman Bhai is always there to remind us that ‘Humaari aukaat “Oscar” jeetne ki nahin hai’. “Oscar’s business is Oscar’s business; its none of our business (pun intended)”. I literally had no expectations from the movie, but the first 15 minutes of the proceedings really impressed me and I started thinking that, now, my money (invested for the admission ticket) will not get wasted. But, the SHIT started to happen with the entry of actress Jacqueline Fernandez (Jessica), and then onwards, the movie is just crap and boring. The twists in the plot are so naively presented that it doesn’t even give the required adrenaline rush. The movie is unnecessarily long and will test your patience post interval. I direly waited for almost 45 minutes for the movie to come to a conclusion. Literally ‘Screen par kuch bhi chal raha tha’. My advice to you, please don’t waste your money on this movie!
Performances = “When Salman Bhai is on screen, you don’t require anything else”. But, unfortunately, seeing the box office performance of his previous movies, Tiger Zinda Hai & Tubelight, the impact of this ideology is fading away. Now, people want decent content also. Both his previous movies (and even this one) did great revenue generation because of their whopping television and overseas distribution rights. Technically, they just did above average business at the box office. Here also, “Bhai Fans” will get all the expected masala from him, in the form of EIDI. There was nothing exceptional about his performance. Actor Anil Kapoor gave an impressive performance. A highly talented actor like Bobby Deol is completely wasted here also. Actress Daisy Shah surprised me with her performance as a vamp. She did a good job. Actress Jacqueline Fernandez just repeats herself in every film she does. Actor Saqib Saleem did a decent job. Actor Freddy Daruwala, as Rana, hardly got any screen presence. Actors like Narendra Jha, Sharat Saxena, Rajesh Sharma and Milind Gunaji were completely wasted.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = I believe that Director Remo D’Souza is highly overconfident with his directorial capabilities. He made the ABCD Series then FALTU then A Flying Jatt and none of them were great or outstanding. I believe he should only focus on his choreography and leave direction for able people. The introduction of every character was extremely hurried, the climax sequence is not justified, the songs and the choreography are pathetic, the twists and turns of the plot are naively presented, so, I am not able to chalk out any positive remark for Remo Sir. The only praise –worthy aspect of the movie is the chase sequence of Anil Kapoor which is presented within 10 minutes of the start of the movie. The action sequences executed there are breath – taking. Even after the presence of a plethora of music directors, there is not a single memorable composition in the movie. The 3D Effects in the movie are at par with Hollywood.
Rowdy Rating = 2 / 5
