Players movie review News
Will Shahrukh Khan overshadow Abhishek Bachchan yet again?
After working in Karan Johar’s unconventional emotional saga Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna way back in 2006, the two stars will be sharing screen space in Farah Khan’s forthcoming film. Will SRK yet again be the biggest draw of the film, completely sidelining junior Bachchan?
Those who went to catch Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna – Karan Johar’s take on extra-marital love equation- primarily swarmed the theatres to watch Shahrukh Khan. Though the film had the commanding presence of Amitabh Bachchan and also featured Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta, not many really went to see Abhishek Bachchan’s execrable dance moves or his average acting skills.

PLAYERS Movie Review: All set to lose the game
Abbas-Mustan’s mega action-thriller Players, unlike their previous outing Race, doesn’t have many twists and turns initially but once they start spilling there’s no stopping them, turning an already boring film into a laughable and cringe-worthy affair. Read review…
Neil Nitin Mukesh’s character, Spidey, raises a toast and roars “may the best player win!” Sitting in the theatre waiting for the film to get over, you secretly mumble, may all the players be shot dead and let’s get it done with! Your mumbling doesn’t stop there. You secretly hope that none of the entities who have been bumped off so far get resurrected from their deathbed to stretch an already burdensome plot to the tipping point of boredom. But, alas, nobody’s really listening to you. Cars keep on somersaulting and the plot and sub-plot get all clogged up. Snazzy gadgets and shiny people get rolled out in some of the best locales in the world, but nothing seems to hold your interest. Even the best of camera work (Possibly, the only credit-worthy thing about Players) and the stunning-looking Bipasha and Sonam start getting on your nerves after a point. Click here to read more
PLAYERS quick movie review: Abhishek, Bipasha and Sonam are bad!
Abhishek Bachchan’s run of bad luck seems to continue. It looks as if even Abbas-Mustan are unable to break the jinx. Our reviewer who is watching Players right now texted us during the interval to say, “So far Charlie’s (Abhishek Bachchan) train is running on the main track with no major turns. One player has turned hostile. The robbery has been pulled off. Abhishek is okay, Bipasha (Basu) is sizzling hot and Sonam (Kapoor) has shown her middle finger. Certain scenes are watchable. The best part is the camera work. Music is flat, acting is bad.” Uh oh. But Abhishek’s fans, don’t worry. If you remember, even Race had initially received a lukewarm response but went on to become a huge hit. Most thrillers are made or broken in the second half. Let’s wait to see how Players’ second half turns out. Abbas and Mustan are known for bringing in unexpected twists in the end, and we won’t be surprised if they have one in this film too. Our full review is coming up soon so do watch this space!
