1.5 Stars (out of 4)
Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna play two brothers vying for an inheritance who try to kill each other in complicated ways that ignore both logic and physics. The plot twists are ridiculous, and their retroactive explanations are even worse. The stunts are more laughable than exciting, as when one character bungee jumps into a moving car. Not even Anil Kapoor’s humorous portrayal of a quirky, fruit-eating detective can save Race. Given how detestable both brothers are, it hardly matters which survives.
