Director-Producer Abbas-Mastan have come up with action pack film “Players”, a remake of Hollywood film The Italian Job released in 2003. “Players” is 2012’s first big release on the silver screen with multi-star cast.
Abhishek Bachchan leads the gang of Players. The supporting cast includes Bipasha Basu, Bobby Deol, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Sonam Kapoor, Sikander Kher, Omi Vaidya and the great comedian Johny Lever.
The story revolves around these groups who are successful in their fields and yet take up conning as full time profession.
Abhishek plays Charlie Mascarenhas, a chartered accounted by day and a master thief in the night. He’s got razor sharp intelligence, is an expert in conning people and loves to call himself an artist.
Naina (Sonam) is an expert in ethical hacking. A beautiful girl who did everything right in her academic life but for personal reasons decides to be a part of the heist.
Riya (Bipasha) is known to charm her way into the hearts of rich and famous men and later into their safety vaults. She has been Charlie’s longstanding partner-in-crime and is also an automobile expert. She has become the talk of the town after sporting a bay watch look that is red hot bikini for the movie.
Ronnie (Bobby) has no experience in the game of conning people, but is a master of illusions. He was one of the most popular illusionists in the country, but abruptly switched tracks at the peak of his career.
Bilal (Sikander), having worked in the secret services, has strong contacts all over the world and is fluent in several languages. He also has had a thing for home-made bombs.
Spider (Neil), a quintessential computer geek and a master hacker, has robbed millions from banks all over the world. Sunny Mehra (Omi) is an aspiring Bollywood star, but when rejected by all the producers, he goes on to become a face-changing expert — a prosthetics expert.
The music is given by Pritam Chakraborty. The song ‘jhoom jhoom jhoom jhoomta hun main’ is an outstanding love song with simple but great lyrics. All the songs of the movie “Players” are great to listen.
Watch “Players” in your near by cinemas which releases on 6th January, 2012.
