PLAYERS starring Abhishek Bachchan, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Sonam Kapoor and Bipasha Basu have hit the screen and it is a slick action film based on smuggling, theft etc. The theme in itself is a heady concoction that provides ample scope for action. The USP for PLAYERS is that the leading female stars, both Sonam Kapoor and Bipasha Basu have thrown all the caution to the winds and have performed various death defying stunts that should indeed earn accolades from the audience.

It however needs to be emphasized that action films that Hindi filmmakers make, continue to get inspired from their illustrious brothers from Hollywood and different parts of the world, and PLAYERS is no exception as it is inspired from THE ITALIAN JOB.


There is always a perception about such ''inspired'' movies that Indian filmmakers take the easy way out of copying rather than working on the script. One can have a contrarian view about it, if we go deep into history. In the past the works of creation were never a signature statement, but there was a view that let the work speak about itself on its merit. From that perspective if a film, even though it might have been ''inspired'', clicks with the audience and at the end of the day this is what business of film making aspires about.

This being the premise, on the eve of PLAYERS lets go down the memory lane and bring into relief few such films, though the numbers are large to buttress the point.
