Once again the Burmawala brothers (Abbas-Mustan) dig deep into the darker side of the human psyche and come up with another thrilling study of wickedness
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
Bottom line: Two rocking numbers, four run-of-the-mill songs and a whole bunch of eclectic remixes is the best Race has to offer.
Sukanya Verma, Rediff 
But there really is nothing at all good about this Race either. Heck, even the horses seem sleepy.
Raja Sen, Rediff 
Perhaps `Racy?
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
Some may ask, but is the drivel still ‘time pass’? Honestly, it’s an absolutely average Abbas-Mustan plot pourri. But chances are that you might Race out of it, as exhausted as someone who’s been driving for hours without a destination.

If you are a sports movie enthusiast, Race is an ideal watch. There are several moments of anticipation, anxiety and celebration as Owens takes to the field. Sports lover or not, you cannot help but cheer for his victory.

Race, surprisingly, is a worthy watch.  Watch out for the dialogue, the neat performances, the smart execution.  But have ordinary expectations.

Overall, Race is a very cool, slick, and entertaining film that will keep you at the edge of your seat all throughout the film. The film is full of twists and turns which only make it more fun to watch. It is not without its share of flaws, but they are o

The way this film has been hyped, it looked like Dhoom3 and then some. Yes, it’s got quite a few car chases, hip-swinging songs, bomb blasts, but it doesn’t quite get there. It’s actually better than Dhoom2 story-wise, and by that I mean that it HAS a sto

The director duo''s latest offering Race, which packs glitz, glam and style with A-listers [on and off screen], carries the baggage of tremendous expectations. The stars, the stunning locales, the breath-taking visuals, the mesmeric songs, the electrifyin

Smash Hits
Over all Race is high on wheels with a twisty story and power packed performances. Worth a watch!
Ashok Nayak, Now Running
Trying to noticeably copy foreign hits have become an easy way out from the regular cliched potboilers of Mollywood, which revolve around feudal family fights and crass comedies. Kukku Surendran's 'Race' is one such attempt in making a thriller, faithfully copying the average Hollywood flick 'Trapped' featuring Charles Theron and Stuart Townsend.
India Glitz
Race is a youth thriller with another angle thrown in. Shot mostly in Thailand, this film has style quotient. However, the emotions and narration should have been better. The taking of film is amateurish and there is no compactness in direction.
