Cast: Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Bobby Deol, Omi Vaidya
Players movie, is an action packed film by Men in white, Abbas-Mustan. Abhishek Bachchan is the protagonist of the film Players. Players, is an official remake of the Blockbuster Hollywood flick, 'The Italian Job' with a tinge of bollywood.
Players, has a long list of star cast with big names like Sonam Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Omi Vaidya, Bobby Deol, Neil Nitin Mukesh apart from Abhishek Bachchan.
Abbas-Mustan, duo is famous for making stylish and thrilling action packed movies like Ajnabee, Race, Humraaz etc.
From the very beginning of the movie Players, viewers would get to know what else the movie has to offer. The movie Players, shows how the world’s biggest gold robbery is planned and conceptualized.
Abhishek Bachchan as Charlie lacked the attitude and charisma of a suave personality to carry out such a role. Abhishek Bachchan has just given a passable performance.
Sonam Kapoor has proved once again that she must not dance, act and seduce. She just needs to quit everything. Bipasha Basu looked like she was not able to get over her ‘Race’ look. Neil Nitin Mukesh was average in his role.
Bobby Deol looked very uncomfortable and disinterested in his character. Omi Vaidya was funny at times but later caused monotony.
Pritam's music is functional with the movie.
First Half of the movie with the train robbery is captured very gracefully and gives a thrilling feel to the movie. Ravi Yadav’s cinematography is impressive in movie Players. Though, it is an official remake of The Italian Job but has the complete desi style of serving.
Abbas-Mustan has used their sense of cinema very smartly in the movie.
Performances from actors like Abhishek Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor is disappointing. The second half of the movie fails to leave any impact on the viewer. Climax of the movie also has that similar, hero-villain fight where the hero has to break the bones of the villain.
The movie Players, is an average flick, with some gorgeous looking actresses and locations like Russia, New Zealand and India. This movie has no comparison with the original inspiration of the movie, The Italian Job. It’s a one-time watch till the next movie release next weekend.
Metromasti rating: 2.5/5
