Salman Khan starrer Race 3 has finally hit screens. Directed by Remo D’Souza, the film also stars Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala.

Salman steps into Saif Ali Khan’s shoes for the latest installment of the Race franchise. Talking about his character in Race 3, Salman had said, “This guy (Sikander) has every side. This guy is very sharp. He has got a good humour. He is ruthless and his basic character is that he has suppressed all his emotions and you don’t know what this man is all about till the end of the movie. He has masterminded and planned everything.”

Here's what the audience has to say about Race 3

Jacqueline Fernandez on Race 3

"I think when it comes to Race 3, it is completely different from what people saw in Race 1 and 2. We categorically did not venture too far from the USP of the film which is at the end of the day, a thriller. All the characters are very dark and negative until you figure out the reality. For my character, I can't say much because everything is about the mystery," Jacqueline Fernandez told Pinkvilla.

Our verdict

At two and a half hours, it is a scattershot snoozefest, perking up only when Salman Khan shows up. I never thought, constant readers, that I’d say this, but it has to be said: the only time Race 3 revs up is when Bhai and his lady love exchange a bit of banter: the hell-for-leather parts take a back seat.

“This is not the continuation of Race 2. It is a different story of a family where the narration has elements of mystery, power struggle, betrayal and suspense. Jessica fights hard, her punch is real punch, her gun fight is raw! It is great to see that we are getting the opportunity to project ourselves like real fighters and are as strong as our male counterparts. My character fights the way a girl would fight in real life if she is attacked," Jacqueline Fernandez told IANS.

Race 3: Early fan reactions

Daisy Shah on Race 3

“I am playing Sanjana in Race 3 and it is very a dark character in the initial phase of the film but towards the end, it gets transformed into a positive character. I had so much of fun doing action for Race 3. All of us know that for actresses in Bollywood only get few scenes and songs but Race is one such franchise where female actors are given equal importance and they are presented equally with their male counterparts. So, this film is not about any specific actor, it’s about performance," Daisy Shah told IANS.

"All the kicks they have given in the film are lethal. They have really trained hard for it from stretching, kicking, and all that stuff. Watching them fight looks like two men are fighting. Also, their fights have that humour and a bit of sensuality and not just hardcore action, Basically, it has everything to it," said Salman Khan.

Remo D'Souza on Race 3 action

"I wanted a very real treatment for Race 3. The action and explosions that you see in the film were all created on set. Fortunately, I had my team supporting my vision completely and delivering their best. The climax scene is an elaborate action sequence that was to be shot with the entire cast. Salman ensured that the gruelling schedule that would otherwise take 10 days to shoot was completed in just 5 days. We had three separate units that were shooting simultaneously on set. The live explosions also had the military's presence for security concern. The entire sequence was an event in itself," revealed Race 3 director Remo D'Souza.

"Though initially visualized on a small scale, we decided to make it larger than life. I designed the scene with the action directors (Tom Struthers and Anil Arsu). Anil sir refused to use a body double. He underwent training sessions in Abu Dabhi before we shot it," remarked Race 3 director Remo D'Souza.

Salman Khan on Race 3 3D

"I am very excited to watch Race 3 in 3D. I don't usually watch 3D films, the last 3D film I watched was Chhota Chetan when I was a kid, now I will directly watch Race 3," said Salman Khan.

Bobby Deol on Race 3

In an interview with Indian Express, Bobby Deol said, "“For the first time, I was on a shoot where every actor was in the gym, working out. The film is all about action. Everyone had to be fit. Anil Kapoor is so energetic and Salman has the fire to do better."

Planning to watch Race 3? Here are some reasons to catch the Salman Khan starrer

1. Salman Khan

Salman Khan. The name is enough. Does one need more reasons to catch Race 3? The Bollywood superstar will be seen in yet another larger-than-life role, with lot of action thrown in for good measure.

2. Action sequences

In an interview, Salman Khan had said, "The whole action team that came onboard for Race 3 is brilliant. Tom Struthers, who directed the action scenes of Tiger Zinda Hai and other Hollywood films including Dunkirk, got his whole team and they are number one in their work. We got to destroy so many cars and we tried all of them on their top speed. The action in Race 3 is not about dinky cars or special effects, we blew up pretty much everything we bought."

But I am excited as well and am very happy that the script has turned out to be good and the final product is amazing.”
