Set and mostly filmed in South Africa and Dubai, Race is a comedy/action/thriller loosely based on the 1998 Hollywood movie Goodbye Lover which delves into the themes of sibling rivalry, betrayal and passion.
Race received a mixed response from the critics. Taran Adharsh gave the film 4 out of 5, stating that Race “is a superb entertainer all the way” and that it “has not just style, but a lot of substance too,” while Raja Sen gave the film 1.5 out of 5 and described the various number of plot twists and poor character development as its main deficiencies. Despite the mixed reviews Race went on to be the second hit of 2008 after the release Jodhaa Akbar in early January with an opening total of Rs.35,61,00,000 in India,
