The story of "Race 2" is set on the lush locales of exotic Turkey, with a backdrop of Gambling and Casino's. Ranveer Singh (Saif Ali Khan) takes the story forward showing more hidden traits of his multi faceted personality then before. Sonia (Bipasha Basu) Ranveer's lover and partner from race, dies in a car blast. A cold fury seeps in Ranveer's heart, and he makes a vow to avenge Sonia's death. Armaan Mallick (John Abraham) heads the Indian mafia in Turkey. He and his partner Aleena (Deepika Padukone) run the smartest criminal outfit in the country. As Ranveer tracks Sonia's murderer, he meets Armaan Malick, Aleena and Armaan Mallick's fiancee Omish (Jacqueline Fernandez). He also takes help from his old friend RD (Anil Kapoor), who now has a new assistant named Cherry (Ameesha Patel). Ranveer treads through this world of ruthlessness depending only on his wits. A world where you cannot trust anyone, a world where betrayal lurks at every corner, where loyalties change every minute, where love is just a four letter word. The plot moves with reckless speed from one exotic locale to another at a breakneck speed full of unexpected twists and turns taking forward the legacy of Race.
Well this film is a blatant message that Hollywood now owns Bollywood. Set in the glitzy glam that doesn't exist in rural North Cyprus, it's a posing parade of cool guys & eye-candy girls. Void of humour, everyone has a hate agenda to deceive everyone in the pursuit of big money. There's no saris, no Ganesh statues, no spiritual values, nor anything even vaguely Indian. They really should have just filmed it in English language & sold it to a wider audience. Saif Ali Khan shone vibrantly in comedies a decade ago, but nowadays acts like a supermarket self checkout terminal. Would appeal to teenagers who hate their parents & spend their lives on game consoles. The only plus point is that the dvd up-scales stunningly crisp, like blu-ray.
