Tips Industries are all set to race to the finishing line with their largest and most ambitious film ever -- RACE -- an exciting, suspense filled, slick blockbuster that is going to keep viewers on the edges of their seats. An out and out thriller with outstanding characterization, a breathtaking story line, laced with intrigue, murder, double crossing and betrayal.
RACE, expected to be the biggest film of 2008, boasts of a star cast that looks like a lineup of the Who's Who of the industry -- Saif Ali Khan, Anil Kapoor, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu and Sameera Reddy -- who come up with riveting performances and succeed in making the film a spine tingling experience.
The music is a perfect foil to this unique film. Pritam has come up with a completely international feel -- reflecting the raw energy, passion, intrigue, darkness and pace of the thriller. Youthful, racy and eminently danceable tracks, cut through an array of grooves and metres.
Tips, the makers such slick films as RAAZ and Soldier & Raja Hindustani, have ensured that the picturisation of the songs is stunning -- colourful, flamboyant, in one simple word -- BIG -- with sexy women gyrating on the screen, oozing oomph.
The title track, Race Saanson Ki, rendered by Sunidhi Chauhan and Neeraj, is as breathtaking as the opening lines suggest. The duo are repeated in Race is on my mind, a track through which Pritam makes you feel into the energy that the protagonists of the story find themselves in.
Shaan and KK, those darlings of the youthful generation, join Sunidhi to create magic in Dekho Nashe Me, which is also presented in a Latin Fiesta Mix version.
Music lovers will hear some new and unconventional voices too. Apache Indian raps along with Sunidhi in Mujh Pe To Jadoo where they are joined by Taz -- Stereo Nation the pioneer of pop fusion. Another fresh voice -- Monali -- will wow listeners with her command over the idiom in the sensual Zara Zara Touch Me and its Asian RnB mix version.
Pehli Nazar is the most soulful track of the film. Rendered in the haunting voice of Atif Aslam the new-age pop sensation, the song delves into depths of feeling and melody. This also the first time the genius of Pritam and Atif Aslam are finding joint expression.
So music lovers have a treat ahead for them -- superlative music of a blockbuster from a super banner. Race to the music shops!
