Salman Khan's Race 3 did business of 171 crores in 15 days
Salman Khan's Race 3 did business of 171 crores in 15 days. It ended up being hit and not blockbuster. In 2018 it had been the 2nd highest grosser after Padmavat. Last year Salman Khan's Tiger Zinda Hai did business of 339 crores. So in that perspective the film did moderate business. But Salman Khan was sublime in the film inspite of average word of mouth.
The songs "allah duhai hai", "heeriye" and "ek baar baby selfish hoke apne liye jiyo na" became super hit. Atif Aslam was sublime. Music was composed by Salim Sulaiman. The film was directed Remo Desouza.
Race 3 is a 2018 Indian action thriller film directed by Remo D'Souza and produced under Tips Films and Salman Khan Films. The film features Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan, Bobby Deol, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala. It is the third installment of Race film series, and the film has a different plot than previous films of the franchise.
Shamsher Singh (Anil Kapoor) owns a private island Al-Shifa for trading arms and narcotics. Sikander Singh (Salman Khan) is Shamsher's step son, while Sanjana (Daisy Shah) and Suraj (Saqib Saleem) are his twin children. Yash (Bobby Deol) is a close associate at Shamsher's empire and confidante of Sikander. In a flashback scene, it is revealed that Rana Vijay (Freddy Daruwala) is Shamsher's business rival and he creates problems for Shamsher's family businesses. As both Sanjana and Suraj age to 25 years, their family lawyer explains the will of their deceased mother (Nishigandha Wad). As per the will, the twins are entitled for 25% share each, and the rest 50% for Sikander. This visible disparity, the twins begin hating Sikander. Shamsher tells both of them that Sikander, is the son of his elder brother Ranchor Singh (Milind Gunaji).
In a flashback, that portrays Handia village of 1970s, the history of Singh family is depicted. Both the Singh brothers used to supply weapons to Indian army. Local politicians of Handia asked them for illegal weapons to which Ranchor refuses. His refusal causes rivalry with a local politician. One day, during an ambush on Shamsher's truck, Vijendar Singh's (Manav Vij) son (Anurag Arora) is killed by Ranchor's gunshot. One day, Ranchor dies when his car is exploded by a bomb. Singh family is then sought to be as a legitimized anti-state and are accused of supplying weapons to enemies. Shamsher sends Sikander to Beijing for studies and takes Suraj, Sanjana and their widowed mother to Cambodia.
Back to present day Al-Shifa, on one night, Yash talks about his girlfriend. Sikander reveals that in Beijing he fell in love with a girl named Jessica (Jacqueline Fernandez) who severed him. Shamsher's childhood friend Brijmohan (Rajesh Sharma) tells him that his friend's hotel was used by politicians for their lascivious motives where all the activity was captured on a spy video camera and stored on hard disk. The hard disk was kept at a bank's locker in Cambodia. Shamsher appoints Sikander on discovery of hard disk who promises him to get back the disk. The Next day, during a party it is revealed that Jessica was actually Yash's girlfriend. Sikander and Jessica meet privately in the security room. The very next day, Suraj and Sanjana (twins), who had recorded Sikander-Jessica's meet, screen the video to Yash. A furious Yash goes to Jessica's apartment and finds Sikander present with her. Sikander later tells him that the both of their past interactions with Jessica were planned by Suraj and Sanjana (twins), as part of their plan to destroy Sikander. Yash teams up with Sikander against the twins but disguises to be with the twins also. Sikander, the twins, Yash and Jessica execute the mission to recover the hard disk.
After handing over the hard disk to Shamsher, he eliminates Sikander by planting explosives in Sikander's car and heads to conference with politicians whose objectionable videos were on the disk. Shamsher tells about Sikander's death to the politicians, in the presence of the twins. He then plugs hard disk and is shocked to find out that the disk was not the original one. Rather, it contained only one video of Sikander's mother. Sikander's mother self filmed a video in which she reveals the truth that Sikander's father (Ranchor) was killed by Shamsher, and the twins were Ranchor's kids. Sikander arrives and tells how he escaped from explosion, thanking to the timely intervention by Raghu Chacha (Sharat Saxena). He further reveals that he knew this secret since ten years and been pretending to be loyal to Shamsher. Shamsher tells that Yash is his real son. A fight scene in the desert between Sikander and Yash, Sikander demolishes the entire army of Shamsher and makes both Yash and Shamsher to surrendered to Jessica who happens to be an Interpol officer. The arrested father-son duo are flown to their native village Handia.
Shamsher is seen bribing a police officer during jail proceedings, while Yash is seen to toning is body inside the prison cell. Sikander, reuniting with his twin siblings in Al-Shifa reveals the plot of handing over the original hard disk to Jessica. In conversation with the twins and Jessica, Shamsher makes a metaphorical statement about "Sher" (tiger) of a new race.
The music of the film was decent.
