When RV (Saif Ali Khan) is spotted by Harry (Jaaved Jaafery) the Manager of a failing Racing car team Speeding Saddles, everything changes for RV and the team - They shoot to the top. - the dream is complete when he meets Radhika (Rani Mukerji) and the 2 tie the knot - the world is at their feet. But when he meets with an accident, his world is turned upside down, he not only loses the edge on the track but everything he had once gained, the accolades, the fans, the money, the house the friends and the glory. It is now that his young family must help him fight his demons and get him back in the driving seat. The family struggles to survive a life that they are not used to - from a big house in a plush locality to the a run down apartment in the Bronx is not what RV wanted for his family - RV is on the road back but can he reclaim the glory for his family?Written by
It has been almost 4 weeks since release of Namstay London and there had been no other major release recently. So, being movie aficionados we were quiet looking forward to this fast track racing action.
It is difficult to describe this film in a regular way. As we say in India; it is just too "Filmy"! It has all regular ingredients of a successful movie - a happy family (with dog), a tragedy, the downfall and then back to success amongst tears and a kid in hospital... It can't get more FILMY than this...
Having said that, I must say that it is an entertaining movie with some nice locations, rocking music, meaningful lyrics and decent acting from Saif & Rani. Saif doesn't quite reach the heights in terms of performances he gave in Omkara or Parineeta, but still he is looking good as family man.
This movie won't surprise you at all, in fact it has all tried and tested bollywood masala (right down to the Indian flags in the final winning sequence).
I generally do not prefer to write long previews as readers (including me) find them boring. In short, don't watch this movie for some extraordinary movie experience, but watch it if you want some decent fun with family & kids.
