If you are itching for a masaledar movie, watch this one. It is funny, intentionally and unintentionally.
It's the kind of movie where everything and everyone looks fancy and posh.

In 1915 Romania sent its pure gold collection worth a zillion crores to Russia for safe deposit. Russia of course chose to never give it back. But now good bilateral terms between the two countries means Russia is sending all that gold back to Romania.

Players is a good opportunity gone waste. Abbas-Mustan were not in their element this time though one can’t help feeling that they were severely handicapped by their choice of actors.

Now this bit of digression is important to explain the concoction of emotions you may feel when you go to watch Players. We are held captive by the makers for about two and a half hours, held at ransom in an Abbas-Mastan universe where sense and sensibili

Players will play a losing game at the box-office. Given the huge investment (of Rs. 65-70 crore) made in the film, it will end up entailing heavy losses to the producers as well as distributors.

Players ends up as a fun weekend flick, especially for action buffs. Don’t expect much from Pritam’s music – there’s none of the head-bobbing of Dhoom 2 or Race.

'Players' was always expected to be THE AbbasMustan film and they stay on to be real heroes of the show as they end up bettering the original source. It is commendable to see them race along with the trends and the grandeur and technique they demonstrate in 'Players' once again establishes that they are two of the best in the business.

Players is a synthetically made formula thriller. It does not touch you emotionally.

wants to recreate of the original is the spectacle of shiny cars being thrown down hillsides to crumple up into little heaps at the bottom of the valley… which I suppose is legitimately cinematic, really. If only the acting were better.

Players is a film that has some pretty strong positives going for it. Trouble is, the handicaps are strong as well. The biggest problem I have with this movie is the length. It is too long and it should have been trimmed by a good 20 minutes atleast. On t
