Race (Photo Recap Pt. 1)

It wasn’t until Race 2 promotions began with Allah Duhai Hai (click on this link, if you haven’t seen this promo song. It is CRACKED OUT and amazing), that I finally decided to watch Race. I’m glad to say that I loved the shit out of it. It’s ridiculous and improbable and irritating and it has TOO MANY TWISTS (seriously, M. Night Shyamalan is jealous of the amount of twists this movie has), but it’s awesome in its craziness. Also, how can you not love a movie that starts out with a mysterious car crash setup?

We don’t get to see who was the victim of the herpy-derpy truck driver, instead we segue directly to the introduction of our characters.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-21h57m36s189

Ranvir Singh. Lives on the edge. Loves extreme sports and owns a stable.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-21h57m41s240

Monto, the only jockey in the stable. Ranvir is working him into the ground. Poor guy looks about 100 years old.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-21h57m50s79

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-21h58m02s199

Sonia. Ranvir’s model “friend”. They haven’t defined the relationship yet.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-21h58m10s19

Although Ranvir would definitely like to get aboard the Sonia train.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-21h58m29s210

Ranvir’s secretary Sophia. She wants a piece of him, but I guess Ranvir is either blind or blinded by Sonia, cause he doesn’t really notice.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-21h59m49s248

Rajiv, the borderline alcoholic younger brother.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h00m08s182

Horse racing.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h01m21s148

Ranvir & co.’s horse loses to Madan Chopra Kabir’s horse.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h01m42s101

Seriously, what does he even mean by that? Ranvir is too deep for my limited brain.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h02m17s191

Ranvir & Rajiv spy on Monto, the jockey, and realize that Madan Chopra Kabir has been bribing him.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h03m37s222

And he does. I thought he would maybe threaten Monto or break his arm or beat him up a bit…but half-measures are not for Ranvir. He just straight up blows the poor jockey up. Hey, Ranvir, if you payed that 100 year old jockey a bit more, maybe this wouldn’t happen!

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h03m03s138

Farewell, Monto…we hardly knew ye.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-21h55m18s88

Oh, remember the assassination attempt that happened in the beginning of the movie?

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h04m26s206

Somebody was trying to kill off Ranvir! Unsuccessfully.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h04m35s41

Apparently the short form for “Ranvir” is “Ronny”. Erm. Moving on…Ronnie recovers pretty soon and throws a cowboy-themed party in the stable.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h04m48s166

Sonia shows up.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h04m50s192

Rajiv likes what he sees.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h07m00s209

He vows to stop drinking if Sonia becomes his girlfriend/wife/second half.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h07m41s108

Ronnie takes one for the team and basically hands over Sonia to his bro.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h07m42s120

Sonia is a bit rattled at first.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h08m00s37

But then the wisdom of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai gets to her.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h08m09s129

Ranvir…Rajiv…basically the same difference.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h09m14s14

BUT WAIT! TWIST! Sonia is actually a hardened criminal, who has been after Ranvir’s money all along.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h09m41s31

Rajiv has a file full of dirt on her and he’s not afraid to use it for blackmail.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h10m07s26

Turns out he’s not that good of a bro…he just wants to kill off Ranvir and collect the insurance money.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h12m33s206

Sonia and Rajiv are getting married!

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h12m39s12

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h13m15s123

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h19m08s65

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h19m50s225

After the wedding Rajiv stumbles home totally drunk. Ranvir is outraged and can’t believe his brother is not keeping the promise to stop drinking.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h21m17s74

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h22m03s18

Rajiv’s nefarious plan includes some guilty sexy times for Sonia and Ranvir.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h22m26s251

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h22m36s93

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h23m09s176

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h23m31s134

This is just wrong. Ugh, Rajiv…you’re the worst.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h23m43s254

Ranvir confesses that he gave Sonia up for his own brother.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h23m54s112

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h23m57s141

Seriously, Rajiv. STOP WATCHING!

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h23m59s156

And they do it right in front of all the horses. And Rajiv.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h25m56s55

A couple of days later, Ranvir is in da club with Sophia (why? Why even ask the question “why?”…it’s RACE!) and he’s totally leading her on.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h26m07s158

Even though Sophia is wooing him with “Zara Zara Touch Me”, all Ranvir can think about is his steamy night with Sonia.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h31m40s158

Meanwhile Rajiv refreshes Sonia on his genius plan: 1) make Ranvir give up Sonia, 2) vow to give up drinking, 3) get married to Sonia, 4) start drinking again, 5) guilt Ranvir into sleeping with Sonia, 6) “find out” about the Ranvir/Sonia affair, 7) go to the office terrace, 8) call Ranvir and blame him for the affair, 9) get Ranvir to come to the terrace, 10) make Sonia push Ranvir off the terrace.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h31m45s209

Sonia is sporting the “bitch, you do all the acting and I do all the killing? WTF?” expression.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h32m09s194

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h32m11s218

SONIA IS IN WITH RANVIR! She’s been telling him about his brother’s plan!

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h33m55s229

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h34m00s27

The plan is in motion.

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h34m14s165

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h35m22s81

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h36m10s42

EVEN THOUGH IN THE PREVIOUS TWIST WE FOUND OUT THAT SONIA IS WORKING WITH RANVIR, SHE STILL PUSHES HIM OFF THE OFFICE TERRACE!

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h36m22s169

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h36m40s94

BAM!

vlcsnap-2013-01-16-22h36m53s217

  1. Why does Saif look like one giant water balloon? How much does it cost to have your entire body injected with collagen?

  2. LMAO @ no#swag with Kats – I took a non-desi friend to see this with me in cinema and I argued how Bips was far more fierce in one scene than Kats is in the entire film! 🙂
