Trivia

Sonam Kapoor had difficulties driving a Mini Cooper due to her height and her inexperience of driving a manual transmission. So a stunt double did most of the driving scenes for Sonam in Wellington. On the other hand, Abhishek Bachchan and Sikander Kher had no problems driving a Mini Cooper. The only thing difficult for them was to get in and out of Mini Coopers as they are so tall. See more »

Goofs

All style and no substance!
10 March 2012 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

Players directed by Abbas-Mustan is an awful movie.The movie is said to be an official remake of The Italian Job.Although I have not seen The Italian Job,I found Players to be boring.

Since the movie is a copy of Italian Job,so the story does not offer any originality.So no points for that.

Story:- PLAYERS is about a team of skilled and sharp group of people -- Charlie (Abhishek Bachchan), Ronnie (Bobby Deol), Spider (Neil Nitin Mukesh), Riya (Bipasha Basu), Bilal (Sikander Kher) and Sunny (Omi Vaidya) -- who rob the gold bullion from Russia successfully. But one of them double crosses the players and the team sets out, with Naina (Sonam Kapoor) also included in their task now, to retrieve the booty and also settle scores.

Neil Nitin Mukesh's performance is the only one that stays in your mind ever after this bad movie ends.So 1 point for that.

Filmed at the panoramic locales of Russia, Netherlands, New Zealand and of course, India, the DoP (Ravi Yadav) bestows the film with an international look. In fact, it's an incredibly good looking film.So 1 point for that.

Johny Lever(a guy common in Abbas-Mustan movies),even though has small role,still registers an impact.Half mark for that and the other for Sonam Kapoor,please don't mistaken me,its not for her acting but for her styling.

Direction,Screenplay,Music and Dialogs are bad.

Performances:- As mentioned above except Neil Nitin Mukesh and Johny Lever,none of them actually act well.Abhsiehk Bachchan is bad.Sonam Kapoor overacts.Bipasha Basu is average.Bobby Deol does not get to register an impact since because he is killed before the intermission.Sikander Kher is passable.Omi Vaidya is irritating this time.Vinod Khanna is fine.Aftab Shivdasani in a special appearance is subtle.

On the whole Players is a let-down.
