Abbas-Mustan's latest venture Players is the official remake of 1969's Hollywood classic The Italian Job, which was remade in English in 2003. But it is not the frame to frame to copy of the classic. The director duo has altered this Hindi version to cater to the desi sensibilities. The movie has all the mandatory masala ingredients of a Bollywood film. It has style and attitude, but it lacks soul and spirit of the original.
Players is a upcoming Bollywood heist film, which electrifies movie buffs with its hi-voltage action. The highlights of the movie are wonderful performance by lead actors, stylised stunts, adrenaline-pumping chases, stunning visuals, Pritam's songs and comic sequences. But the editing work is big let down in it.
The movie is all about a gang of skillful, stylish and sharp players, who who team up to carry out a heist. Unlike The Italian Job, Players lacks a captivating screenplay. Abbas-Mustan have added some extra elements, which were not there in the original classic and they make the movie very lengthy and boring. Trimming of certain sequences could have enhanced impact of the movie.
