New Delhi: The direction of Abbas-Mustan is the chief attraction of 'Race 2'. The director duo has tried hard to make a suspense-thriller a sought after genre in Bollywood as the Hindi film industry traditionally leans towards idealistic romantic stories.
They have not been successful with their each project but some of their films are actually mention-worthy, 'Khiladi' and 'Baazigar' received commercial success as well. 'Baadshah' was a moderate success but this film was at par with any Hollywood film when it comes to style.
The duo is in search of a hit film as their only film in last four years, 'Players' was not a success at the box office.
The 'Race' sequel may end their quest as it is reprising the premise of 'Race' with Saif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor playing similar roles. John Abraham is likely to play a grey character while Deepika and Jacqueline are expected to emerge as surprise packages.
The songs of the film have created enough ripples but the real game will be on the ticket window where people would want the film to meet their expectation level. Rohit Vats of IBNLive was inside the theatre to live tweet the experience of 'Race 2'.
