Salman Khan starrer Race 3 hit the silver screens on Friday. In Race 3, Salman does the fighting, the talking, the thinking, the jaunting basically he does everything. 

Race 3 begins with Sikander (Salman) stands atop a building with well-stocked cars being blown up. Sikander is the bodyguard of Singh family. Shamsher (Anil Kapoor) and his older brother who is Sikandar's father used to supply weapons to the army but Shamsher and his brother have a falling out.

Shamsher is ousted from the village and tries to convince his children, Suraj (Saqib Saleem) and Sanjana (Daisy Shah), who play the evil twins, to be nice to Sikander because of the bonds of blood. The brother-sister duo is at loggerheads with Sikander but don't have the guts to say it out loud.

Jessica (Jacqueline) plays the love-interest of Sikander, but is also pursued by Yash (Bobby Deol). Yash who is another cousin of the Singhs, is a saving grace in the movie. He gets a superb entry scene of his own and has totally pulled off the mysterious persona.  

The film is heavily loaded with action and cringy dialogues. The film ends up losing the plot, which leaves the audience behind with poorly written scenes.

The film Race 3 fails to live up to the massive hype generated ahead of its release, and while the star power of the cast may draw audiences into the halls, those looking for a plot-based movie may choose otherwise. 

The first two films of the Race franchise, Race and Race 2 were directed by Abbas-Mustan and received considerable success.
