Yet another copy of a Hollywood flick, except this time it is two movies : "House of Games" (contribution about 70%) and "Matchstick Men" (about 20%). The remaining 10% too must have been a copy from some movie that I have not seen yet.


You know how in old Xerox machines when you made copies of the original and then copies of copies the second, third, fourth set used to get less sharp than the pervious. The same thing happens with Hindi movies when they copy and re-copy Hollywood movies. The end product is a nonsensical mess.


Briefly, the story is about a group of confidence artists who go about separating people from their money. If they had kept the story exactly like the Hollywood movie that contributed a majority of this then it would still have been an interesting story, but the Hindi movie writers consider themselves too smart to convolute even the simplest of stories for the sake of twisting - no logic needed. The trouble is that beyond a point this kind of twisting leads to an out of control story line which I am sure even the writer themselves could not understand (at least that's how the direction seems like).


If you can rent "House of Games" then get it, you will at least get a more logical and entertaining version of it. If you have Netflix or Blockbuster-online service then you can easily order it.


Don’t waste your time on this crap.
