Now this is the kind of feel-good movie that can be tolerated - even with loopholes!
After watching it, I realized one thing though. "Race" and "Tara Rum Pum" should have been named vice versa. :)
A heartwarming film about the 'best, best, best racer in the world', Ranvir Singh and his family: his wife, Radhika and his two kids, "Princess" (who only manages to be slightly less tolerable than Annie herself) and "Champ" (cute kid, wonder why they named him like a dog :S ), this is a good ol' comfort-food type of a movie. Take your favorite munchies, prepare for some good ol' cliches (tolerable because they're added on with a bittersweet story) and just have your regular, relaxed weekend. Saif and Rani look oodles better than Saif and Bipasha (cringe cringe) and the songs are much more in tune than "Khwaab de ke jhootey jhootey" (huh?) ... "Forever" even has a better ring to it!
Saif's niche is truly the real, everyday, smart-alec guy (that Siddharth Anand explored in "Hum Tum" and Farhan Akhtar broke through in "Dil Chahta Hai") who is easier to fall in love with for audience - as compared to high-powered millionaire who's chasing super-models and killing his brother and dodging monster trucks. Let's leave that to Hamlet, shall we?
Anyway. Loved Tara Rum Pum. I'd recommend it. With pizza, Pepsi and all that fatty, carby jazz.
