Pretty funny actually watching someone attempt to make two people who clearly hate each other fall in love. Kind of a Hatfields and McCoys thing going on too with the family feuds.

Can't believe Akshay as well as Aishwarya said yes to this movie and Vipul actually made a movie this bad, this is a horrible remake of Back To The Future.

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 remake of "Back to the Future" this movie just was a complete waste of time. The movie left a ton of loose ends open at the end (ie what happened to Neha Dhupia's character above what was told, why did the change not effect the future more, etc.). I generally have an issue with time travel movies, so may be biased.

Although it was hilarious to see hot Akshay Kumar get a "makeover," the plot of this movie was not only ridiculous (traveling in time to manipulate your parents into love?) but illogical (not sure what merited the slow mo and dramatic music sometimes).

This gets two stars for the music. A couple of fun ones. I suggest you check them out on youtube and skip the flick.

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.

Back to the Future made in Bollywood Ishtyle .. !
lots of pointless scenes, totally mindless plot ... lots of gaana, romance and some action! Add to this:
- Mrs. Bachchan looking her plastic self
- Akshay with a horrible make up
- Jokes which are beyond unfunny

Why would any one make a movie like this ... let alone Vipul Shah who has actually made some classic movies ... ?
