A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsSalman Khan in Race 3One of the biggest problems with Bollywood these days is that the makers are not willing to take risks. It is formula-based films that are becoming the greatest undoing of Bollywood. Race 3, the latest installment in the popular Race franchise, is essentially a parody of the dozens of Hollywood action films that director Remo D’Souza and writer Shiraz Ahmed would have seen over the years. It is impossible not to think of the ‘James Bond’, ‘Mission: Impossible’, and ‘Fast and Furious’ films while watching Race 3. But, instead of drawing inspiration, Race 3 makes a ...
