The sequel to the 2008 hit Race, Race 2 encompasses enough action, gorgeous humans (hiiiii John Abraham) and complicated plots to work as a stand-alone action thriller. There’s no denying that Bollywood films ever EVER lack vivid colours, great cinematography and music that’ll make your head burst (with what, I’m unsure). But it’s thin dialogue, awfully superficial characters and chimerical plot let the film down abysmally. Race 2 really attempts to be a great success, and manages it sometimes, but its triple-twists and quadruple-bluffs turn into one (addictively) outrageous farce.
A Bollywood romp around the West End, Cocktail is far more style than substance – glossy London cityscapes, an incredible soundtrack and staggeringly attractive characters abound while the Indian family dynamic, as always, lends a heartwarming core to a tale as old as time. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts, it’s impossible to ignore that Cocktail is actually completely mental.
