On the whole, it's worth the $$ and throughout 2 and half hours of the movie, I didn't got bore even for a second.

I'll give it 3 on 5. Enjoy the movie.

Watched Aakash Vani. Well the director lost the plot by just putting unnecessary songs at every interval. The issue raised by him is very valid but well he stretched the movie too much. The cinematography is mind blowing. The director has used silence and just expression as a way to convey the anguish which many people might not get it. Anyways a good subject but poor execution.

+1

There is suspense and most of it is predictable.

I think Race-1 was better. Even the music/songs were better in Race-1.

Having said that, Race-2 is quite an entertainer.

Locations, camera, action, suspense and "colours" make it a good watch.

Right, Race 1 had more twists, more & better action. Except the chase sequence of the shooter, other Race 2 actions are quite lame. Read somewhere that to act in 'Race' movies, actors must deliver dialogues with 'wooden' face (with sunglasses on), else they might give away the next twist

I give,
1 - For all actors/actress being trim & fit, and for wearing designer wear
2 - For cinematography, locales
3 - For not being teenage love story (hence didn't bore me).
So its 3/5 for me.

Race-2 My Rating 1/5

Race1 was kind of ok. But Race2 is totally bad. Every department has failed to deliver. Acting is worse and nothing to write about the direction and action sequences. Story written to just to have twists and without any logic. They open story in all directions and finally just tie some of the lose ends in the climax. Total waste of my 25$.

Watched Race 2 the other day. The movie was average and to be frank it didn't even live up to its expectations. Everything seemed obvious and the movie was predictable right from the beginning.

Except for exotic Cars, stunning locations and Deepika's gorgeousness there isn't much in this movie.

My rating: 2.5/5

Race 2 : 1/5 - There was this awesome spoof trailer titled Disgrace 2; that spoof was the perfect review of this movie. Unfortunately that video has been removed from youtube by TipsAudio on copyright issues.

Edit: Found another newly uploaded video. .

Watched " Race 2"

I agree with everyone, prequel was much better for sure. Loved the opening sequence of the yellow gallardo.

What is there is say about this franchise, its all about big money (amounts you only read in forbes magazine or is there in Mukesh Ambani's account) deals as if they are talking about some simple monetary transactions and is also about double crossing. Funnily enough there is no premise as to why John Abraham would want to double cross Deepika..LOL!

Audi has showcased their entire range from A4-Q7 to an R8 as they were the luxury car providers for this movie. Most stupid scene was when Saif leans out of a madly zig zagging TT to go beneath a car which is notorious for almost zilch ground clearance to remove a bomb

Deepika looked gorgeous only in the opening sequence in that white dress. Oh boy !!!

Jacqueline F is super gorgeous looking and Deepika pales in front of her

John looks as if he's on steeriods and his close up shots are not too pleasing. Saif looked better among the two and not sure if anyone noticed, he keeps changing wigs every few scenes. Combed back hair vs. Some strands falling in front of his face. Wierd..huh?

Anil Kapoor had no right to be there in the movie. He was disgrace and
had absolutely nothing to do in the movie except munch on fruits and try not to leer at his buxom dimwit secretary ( Amisha: this is what happens when you dont maintain weight and relationships in Bollywood, you fall into a side-kick role from a lead heroine)

There is one sequence of the hitman taking a shot and then loiter on the terrace for our hero to spot him. Talk about a professional hit-man'ish quality...LOL

Looks like Turkey is on every movie makers list. Need to visit this gorgeous country myself now.

Music and songs were pathetic and stop abruptly. Great locations and cinematography

Overall, its all jazz and style and zero substance.

2/5

Being a Kamal Hassan fan had to see this movie Vishwaroop. I really did not understand why it was banned. An excellent movie and a must watch movie for all. However as they have also mentioned if you are weak at heart and cannot see blood then avoid.

5/5

hi all, just came back after watching Vishwaroop. And I have to say its an ok movie. The plot moves around back and fourth in the past and present so need to pay attention in the movie. There is a lot of action in it and my teenage cousin loved it. I found it ok, but no regrets watching it.

All in all I would give it a 2.5/5 as i do like action movies. If i didnt like action then the rating would have been 2/5

David : 3/5

Pros: Excellent acting by Vikram, Saurabh Shukla, Neil Nitin Mukesh, and to some extent, Monica Dongra!
Cons: Rest of the actors - some of them (Milind Soman, Tabu, Lara Dutta) don't even need to be in the movie!

Overall a nice script, but at times, especially in the second half, the dialogues are too lengthy. The movie would have been worth a 5/5, if they had re-edited and reduced it to 2 hours! Worth a watch, but keep your expectations low.

Special 26:

A nice movie. Gripping first half. Though there are NO extraordinary memories, the twist is really good! A handful of good comedy, some nice BGM bits too. Didn't feel the chemistry between Akshay & Kajal Aggarwal was great! What gripped me more was how they managed to make the roads fill with the Ambys, Padminis, M800s & imports of those era!

My rating - 3/5
