Pritam's music rocks. Generally, in most thrillers, the music takes a backseat, but not here. 'Allah Duhai Hai' [foot-tapping], 'Pehli Nazar Mein' [with soulful rendition by Atif Aslam], 'Touch Me' [very saucy] and 'Sexy Lady' [the new track; trendy] are terrific compositions all and their filming and choreography are masterly. The fact that the yuppie crowd has taken to the songs in a big way, says it all. The race at the start and the chase in the climax [Allan Amin] are fantastic. You haven't witnessed something like this ever before on the Hindi screen, that's for sure! Hussain Burmawala's editing is razor-sharp. It's one of the best edited works!
Dialogues [Anuraag Prapanna, Jitendra Parmar] are excellent. Styling [Anaita Shroff Adajania] is superb. Background score [Salim-Sulaiman] has the international feel. Choreography [Bosco-Caesar and Ganesh Acharya] is top class.
Every actor in RACE puts his/her best foot forward. Saif has been coming up with sparkling portrayals and films like KAL HO NAA HO, EK HASINA THI, HUM TUM, SALAAM | NAMASTE, OMKARA and EKLAVYA – THE ROYAL GUARD portrayed the actor's acting skills to the fullest. Now add RACE to his illustrious repertoire. He's marvelous all through and the bearded look suits him very much.
Overall the film is not bad but a large amount of credit for that goes to the editor and to Allan Amin – the man behind all the action. Abbas Mastan will draw in fans to the box office largely because of the multi star line up and for the infamous Bipasha Basu – Saif Ali Khan lovemaking number (which let us warn you isn't all that much!). The fast cars, horse racing and the locales of South Africa make the film a treat to watch.But as far as the acting is concerned a lot of the times you were left laughing (when you shouldn't) and cringing (when you definitely shouldn't!) The girls looked great thanks to Anahita Shroff Adajania and Katrina and Sameera did just that. It was only Bipasha who can actually claim to have acted in the film. Akshaye Khanna and Saif, on the other hand, were brilliant. The less said about Anil Kapoor and Sameera the better!
Salman Khan and his entourage avoided a party thrown by Kareena Kapoor for celebrating Saif Ali Khan’s birthday.
This was to avoid collision course with rival Shah Rukh Khan and his party who were in strong presence at the party. The party was hosted at “ Four Seasons” in Worli, Mumbai.
Instead, Salman chose to attend a party thrown by Subhash Ghai to celebrate his wife Rehana’s birthday at the JW Marriott in Juhu, despite a special invitation from Kareena Kapoor.

Katrina, 24, was accompanied to the event by Bollywood colleague
She wore a blue tiered dress with ruffle detail on the bodice and black belt. Besides her ever endearing smile, the Singh Is Kinng star accessorized with black patent pumps and leaf drop earrings.
Her Barbie doll inspired long hair, styled in loose curls and asymmetrical side parting, framed her gorgeous face and draped her right shoulder. She wore pearl pink lipstick, matching blush, thick black eyeliner with heavy mascara.
Second time winner of the sexiest woman title by a men's magazine, Katrina says she considers herself pretty not sexy. “It feels good to be voted by fans and that too in such huge numbers, but I don’t think if you wear a bikini or show skin, you look sexy. I would rather say I’m pretty," said Katrina.
