Trivia

Prior to shooting this film, stunt director Allan Amin decided to make Sonam Kapoor get comfortable behind the wheels of Mini Cooper as she is very tall. She practiced for 10 days. However, during one of the practice sessions, she hit a lamp post in Wellington as she accelerated while reversing her car. See more »

Goofs

In the very last scene of the film, Charlie reveals that he, Naina and Bilal hid their Mini Coopers (which had the gold) in MC's garage and fled with three new Mini Coopers in order to fool Spider and his gang. However, the plate numbers of the Mini Coopers are the same and Naina's yellow Mini Cooper has a laptop that she used to hack the traffic system which was not supposed to be there as she had switched her Mini Cooper in MC's garage.

Good but many things to improve !!
8 January 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

http://reviewforfilmmakers.blogspot.com/ https://twitter.com/abhishekjain118

This is about only those things which as a viewer I didn't like.. When the bad guys already got accepted as protagonists in Indian films, there was no need of showing the humane side of the players.. in fact the most inhumane player – Neil Nitin Mukesh impressed the most.

Yes it is true, not only recently but since 70' and 80' whenever our hero goes out for a theft, we love it. Kohinoor, Jewel Thief, Don2, Roop Ki Raani.. etc etc.. Accepted that hero always brings in some reason to steal but the trend is changing !! You can change too..

So there is the quick NOT-TO-DO check list for Abbas-Mustan's Players.

1. Remove good motives of Robbery i.e. Victor's dream project, Ronny's daughter.. make everything emotionless, professional. Though Sonam's reason to join for Victor's death was justified.

2. Take actors which can act. For star power, couple of them are OK. like rather than investing in Abhishek, Sonam, Bobby, Neil and Bipasha, pay more to 2 stars and 3 actors.. because among the 5 only Niel and Bipasha acted.

3. Bipasha's Engine work and Bobby's illusion on train windows were something too too much of science fiction to digest. Agreed that Indian audience is watching science fiction and gradually accepting such techno gigs but at the same time people have started applying logics also, the flags on the windows were clearly showing not spraying the solutions on the entire window.

4. Reduce songs and reduce the length of the movie. Sonam's gig on Bobby, Bipasha's dance for Russian general and Sonam-Abhishek drunken songs were too too too tiring and waste of time. Instead sonam and bipasha could have used smart lines to get their men. I like the talking people do the night clubs.

5. Instead of simply showing Sonam's tense face while hacking scenes, more theoretical information about how it is possible to find Spider would be better.

6. And last but not the least, you made the robbery seems pretty easy. People watch Mission Impossible franchise in India now. If not making the mission impossible, at least make it difficult.

Note: The objective of this blog is to pick only loop holes and not so great things about the movie and NOT TO review the entire movie. General ratings from different critics holds true about the movie.
