I normally have very good judgement when it comes to movies and am very selective when it comes to cinema viewings but I was with someone who wanted to see this movie. After seeing this movie I am seriously considering terminating the friendship!.
I thought the original Race was quite decent so I had a brief idea on what to expect (IE lots of twists and turns) but this movie went really overboard with twists that it was hard to keep up with the plot.
That said I will try to explain the plot and twists as coherently as I can.
The plot as it is revolves around a criminal organization which consists of boss Anil Kapoor, dead brother's son Salman Khan, right hand man Bobby Deol, faithful worker Sharad Saxena and Anil's twin children Saqib Salaam and Daisy Irani.
They hatch a plan to blackmail politicians by laying their hands on some information in a hard disk that exposes them in a compromising position which they would pay any money for Anil Kapoor not to leak to the media. The disk is in in a locker in Cambodia.
That is the barebones of the flimsy plot, to elongate the movies length to make for the flimsy premise there is deception and double crossing all over.
Jacqueline Fernandez meeting Salman Khan and then leaving them, then Bobby Deol introduces as his fiancée, when confronted reveals that she was hired by the twins to steal money. When truth comes out Salman, Jacqueline and Bobby decide to join hands to expose the crafty two.
Then when retrieving the hard disk in Cambodia Salman taken hostage by Cambodia's army on the orders of Bobby Deol, who is in fact dating Daisy and is in cahoots with them.
Salman Khan manages to escape with the help of Jacqueline and avenges his betrayal at the hands of Bobby and the twins. After that his car is blown up by Anil Kapoor. He is informed what his uncle planned to do by Sharad Saxena.
Then in the finale comes the biggest twist of all. When the gang meet the politicians, the wrong disk is played and in the disk Salman's dying mother's video which reveals that Anil himself was responsible for killing his brother and had been slowly poisoning his bhabhi after taking her in after murdering his brother. His brother was against the idea of Anil selling drugs and hence Anil disposed of him.
Anil's demands for the politicians is that some of their land is to be reserved for his drugs empire.
Not only that Salman's mother reveals that the twins are not really Anil's kids but hers and her husbands, making Salman and the twins siblings and Anil's offspring is none other than his right hand man Bobby Deol!.
Now onto who switched the disks, it was none other than Salman Khan who had come to know that his uncle has murdered his parents and had been waiting for the right moment to expose his uncles wrongdoings.
Like me you must have been confused reading it but that is the entire plot of the movie complete with twists and turns. There was some stuff about some sort of will if I recall but by the end my head was so screwed over by the absurdity of the movie I blanked it out. Trust me I have saved you from watching this tranwreck by revealing the twists.
There are many laughable moments, like the scenes with Salman Khan flying (yes flying!).
The songs too are a disappointment, with the exception of "Allah Duhai" which was taken from the original.
The performances too are disappointing. Jacqueline and Daisy are meant to add sex appeal to the proceedings but fail miserably, particularly Daisy whose blank expressions really irked me.
The only saving grace is the wonderful Anil Kapoor, who is still the ultimate badass after more than thirty years in the industry.
I would go as far as saying Race 3 is one of the worst Bollywood movies I have seen and by far the worst movie I have had the displeasure of seeing on the big screen.
At the end hey hinted at a potential fourth addition to the series, which just proves that the makers really have no sympathy for the audience, they just want to milk every bit of money out of them.
