Action Replayy Movie Review

Action Replayy Movie Review Action Replayy

Starring: Akshay Kumar, Aishwarya Rai, Aditya Roy Kapoor

Director: Vipul J. Shah
Music Director: Pritam

Despite all its shortcomings, mainly a flawed script and a not-so-funny humor, Action Replayy is a fun watch because of its retro angle. The long-haired Akshay and the pig-tailed Aishwarya bring back memories of the glorious 70s with their unique style of celluloid romance and the burst of colors. That certainly will bring a smile to your face.

Bunty (Aditya Roy Kapoor) is scared of marrying his girlfriend, Tanya because he’s seen his dad, Kishen (Akshay Kumar) and mom, Mala (Aishwarya Rai) constantly bickering. So he decides to travel back in time to set his parents’ love story straight, via Professor Anthony Gonsalves’ (Randhir Kapoor’s) time machine. The movie is obviously inspired by the 1985 science fiction film, Back to the Future, starring Michael J. Fox.

Though he is good, Akshay desperately needs to reinvent himself. It’s a clear case of overkill. Aishwarya pitches in a sincere act in both her avatars. Veterans Kirron Kher and Om Puri, apart from causing a few laughs here and there, don’t have much to do. But the actor who quite easily steals the thunder is the talented Aditya Roy Kapoor. He is a guy to watch out for.

There’s nothing great about Pritam’s score this time, except the chartbuster, “Zor Ka Jhatka”—but the background score by Salim-Sulaiman is terrific.

So you can go ahead and watch this illogical entertainer. Just don’t expect too much from it. And yes, the time machine looks tacky. But let that be!
