Neil: Bollywood is way behind Hollywood

According to Neil Nitin Mukesh Bollywood is way behind Hollywood in terms of technology and execution, he says,

We constantly talk about Hollywood and Bollywood, but I feel we are nowhere close to them what so ever whether it is in terms of technology or processing or story line or execution or anything. Their Superman and all came 30 years back and we hardly made a film like Krrish that has worked for us,

So we are way behind them…that is because there the audience has accepted futuristic films… because movies are meant to be made to believe, they are meant to be larger than life. Unfortunately it is not like that our films are bad but we are not catering and guiding to our audiences,

Today almost for every film a critic writes leave your brains behind and enjoy the film…why would one leave their brains behind? One must go there and see an intelligent film. So make an intelligent film and feed your audience with that. If we keep offering them certain amount or certain quality of films they will get used to that and expect that only.

If you see those (Hollywood) films doing well then it because there imagination and execution is that powerful. The last horror made in Bollywood that I loved was Haunted. I feel we can go to next level soon,

Neil is all praise for the execution by the director duo of the film, where he essays the role of Spider, a computer hacker, he says,

I play a computer hacker…he is a computer whiz. He is intelligent. His mind is very strong and whichever thing he wants to hack or in whatever space he needs to get into as far as gizmo zone is concerned he knows his ways out. He becomes an integral part of the hyped robbery and it’s impossible to execute this robbery without him,

The one thing that I admire about Abbas-Mustan is that from Khiladi to Players they have always progressed with time.

Players is slightly advanced in its time. It’s a very well shot film. Their thinking is not old-school, they are very stylish.

Players is Releasing on 6th January 2011.
