The month of May did commence with the trailer of Race 3 and with it came its trolls. ‘Our Business is Our Business’ dialogue was one of the most outrageous dialogues converted into one of the most famous memes. But then the trailer promised to be nothing more than popcorn entertainment which was synonymous with the earlier two films of the franchise. The only difference being(not human😜) Saif Ali Khan was replaced by Salman Khan. Was this Race worth watching…lets find out.
Story & Screenplay
Race 3 is the story of one double crossing family. And that is about it. It is ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ meets f******* ‘Fast and Furious’. The story is so bad that the writer should be fined. The screenplay was equally badly penned with too many things thrown in without any reason or logic. The first half was a snoozefest and the second half although marginally did not leave an impact. I wonder who approves such dogshit. The dialogues as so bad that they are unintentionally funny. The music is average with no blockbuster songs. The lyrics are cringeworthy. Direction by Remo D’Souza is the weakest link here. He had last directed the dud , ‘A Flying Jatt’ and if you think that was bad then please watch this movie and stand corrected. His direction is so dull that the twists seem quite insipid.
The performances are as over the top as the proceedings. Sakib Salim is so irritating, ending each line with ‘bro’. Daisy Shah is inconsistent, good in some places, over the top in others. Bobby Deol is decent. Jacqualine Fernandes looks pretty and dances well and thats about it. Only Anil Kapoor stands his own bringing all his experience into play. Salman Khan being(yes human 😜) Salman Khan tries to play to the galleries but somehow seems disinterested throughout.
Race 3 is so bad that it makes the earlier two films in the franchise look like f******* masterpieces. This Race should be disqualified. If you still want to watch it, I suggest wait for it to come on Amazon Prime. Till then steer clear!! Issued in Public Interest!!
PS : There was a dialogue in the movie : ‘Bewakoofi ka koi Ilaaj nahi'( There is no cure for foolishness) . Applies to me.
