If you are familiar with bollywood films, you know this is just one of many! but the charm in the characters is adorable!! A lot of plot holes but it can be forgiving when you listening to the songs and see the dance performances

Action Replayy is a good family film, I mean for the whole family together, you should watch it on your spare time at Diwali or something, but mostly as a time-pass movie, the film fails to create an impact! The over-acting, badly written script, ridiculous performances ruin the hilarious humor in between! Some funny scenes, some romance scenes, some action, that's about it!

Recommended at your own risk!
Verdict = Flop

A classic example of a good premise gone wrong because of a uncreative and weak screenplay. Nothing happening in the movie except Akshay Kumar's antics and Aishwarya Rai's dancing and acting skills. That should be enough to steer this one through the muddy waters of a festival season.

Action Replayy rides high on two of the current buzz words in Bollywood - sci fi and the seventies era. We have had a slew of movies on both these niches in the past few months, and they have met with mixed successes. Action Replayy mixes both of these and comes up with a love story-cum-triangle-cum-comedy movie starring Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai as the two main characters.

Kishen ( Akshay Kumar) is married to Mala (Aishwarya Rai) who are like in the afternoon of their lives, with one son, Bunty (Aditya Roy Kapoor) a guy who has given up on the concept of marriage love because he sees that his parents are always bickering. Of course, his girlfriend has a grandpa Anthony Gonzalves (Randhir Kapoor) who makes time machines in his basement - quite common around here, actually.

It all takes a speed burst when Kishen and Mala fight tooth and nail on their anniversary night, and after a college friend, Kundan (Rannvijay Singh) insults Kishen during the party. Bunty then decides to take matters into his own hands and travel back in time to bring the love back into his parent's life. Erm.. wouldn't a paid trip to a romantic destination be more plausible, dude? I mean, your mom spends nine crores in shopping. Anyway, what happens next is what forms the rest of the story.

And it is Boring. Seriously, the movie is very, very boring. A classic case of style over substance, all the movie does is have the entire cast move around in seventies style attire and mouth Bollywood lines and basically try to poke fun at current Bollywood celebrities, current affairs - which do not exist in the present timespace continuum - ha ha ha.

The screenplay lacks the chutzpah and showcase scenes that you can have when you have actors like Akshay Kumar, Aishwarya Rai, Om Puri and Kirron Kher on screen. Neha Dhupia seems like she's walked over from a neighboring shoot to dance for the music video.

The transformation of both the characters seems very unrealistic, particulary Kishen's. And there is no transformation actually, or if there is, it hasn't been executed well. Kishen is still the dunce amongst the lot all through the movie, except for the 'one tight slap' sequence at the end of the movie -and thankfully it is not picturized on the woman!

That said, this is another movie that tries to give you a brief memoir of how things were back in the seventies. But the ongoings are so boring that you end up seeing the posters and such that are reminiscent of the seventies. Like the Cadbury's black and white ad, the old time look of the bakery, and of course, the awesome Gothic British architecture that is abound all about in the movie.

Go to the theater only if you want to see a Gorgeous Aishwarya Rai dancing and acting like she's actually enjoying her character and of course, Akshay Kumar, who always enjoys his characters. Strictly for the holiday crowd.

Bollywood film dad wanted to see I tagged along, wish I hadn't or atleast watched the trailer first. yet, in a strange way I am glad I watched it, because the story has stayed with me and the more I reflect on it, the more I think how true some things are. And it should be watched for the line alone "Awwaaz Neeja!!!! " BANG BANG ..... LOL still makes me laugh :P

Worst movie of the year award should go to this movie a total waste of time and money only good part about the movie is the song "Zor ka jhatka" and to watch that you dont need to go to theater just watch on any music channel,Screenplay of movie is disaster,apart from above mentioned song all other songs are forgetable,music of the songs don't go with the era.Avoid watching it.

'Action Replayy' is a good way to ruin nice memories of a lovable and popular 1985 sic-fi movie 'Back to the future'. New comer Aditya Roy Kapoor (who shows promise), Aishwarya Roy (who defies make-up), Pritam (who delivers a couple of nice numbers) try to hold it back, but there is too much dead weight in this one.
