This week sees the release of action thriller ‘Race 2’ which is said to have opened in no less than 50 countries worldwide. Early indications show that as far as first day collections go, it may just do better at the all important box office than it’s 2008 prequel ‘Race’ and also 2012 Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer ‘Cocktail’.
This is particularly prevalent at the Indian box office where ‘Race 2’ seems to be doing well, achieving 70-80% occupancy, as per One India Entertainment. So much so is the film’s popularity that trade analysts are predicting a whopper of a first weekend collection for the Abbas-Mustan film. In contrast, it is thought that ‘Akaashvani’ which also released in India today is receiving a very poor response.
The reviews of ‘Race 2’ approve a very classy and stylish exterior but not many are praising the story too much. Look out for our review at BizAsia very soon.
