How one wishes director brothers Abbas Mustan had shown more innovation and integrity in their attempts at dividing the step-brothers.
Race is reasonable enough to win a ‘not bad’ stamp. But isn’t imaginative enough to gain a ‘good’ tag.

An average plot pourri
Hindustan Times, India - Mar 21, 2008
Some may ask, but is the drivel still ‘time pass’? Honestly, it’s an absolutely average Abbas-Mustan plot pourri. But chances are that you might Race out of it, as exhausted as someone who’s been driving for hours without a destination.

If you’re content with watching mindless glamour and silly twists being presented as thrills, you might consider this one. But be warned, this frothy soda has nothing else except the fancy bubbles.

Fast but not fascinating!(Kavita Ogale - E-NOW WEEKEND)
Times, India - Mar 21, 2008
What works for Race then, is the stylish camera work, slick editing & a gorgeous looking star cast. The E NOW WEEKEND rating for this almost convincing, boom bang film is two and a half stars. Watch it once while the pop corn lasts!

Race is a pacy thriller
Rajeev Masand / CNN-IBN
Rating: 3 / 5 (Good)
In the end, Race has fast cars and fast babes, and it's better than anything else its directors have made recently. Judged purely as a Bollywood thriller, I'll go with three out of five for Abbas-Mastan's "Race". Because there's barely anything else at the movies currently, I'm going to say - go watch it, you won't be disappointed. And don't miss that one scene with Johnny Lever. He's back after so long and he's so good.

The much-awaited Bangalore international airport is almost ready, but getting there could prove a nightmare for travellers facing more chaos on clogged roads. The government has not delivered on promises to widen access roads or build a dedicated rail link to and from the city -- meaning the commute could take much longer than a short-haul flight.

Bangalore International Airport Ltd. (BIAL)'s Swiss CEO Albert Brunner, has set an April 2, 2008 deadline. The trial run done two days back with aircrafts of Kingfisher Airlines, Air Deccan and the Indian Air force at the Bengaluru International Airport was a success.
The airport expects to receive and send off eight million passengers in its first year. It has been designed for 11000000 passengers a year.The project which is in its final stages of completion and is expected to cost more than 20000000000 rupees...
