Movie Review: Action Replayy (2010)

Users Rating: [ratings] ★★☆☆☆
Box Office: Flop

To recreate the bygone era and tell a parable of the former period is nothing short of a challenge and that’s exactly what director Vipul Shah is out to achieve with his latest outing ACTION REPLAYY. Travel machines and time travel stories are no longer alien for Bollywood. We have had our share of movies wherein characters have either travelled into the future or into the past. In ACTION REPLAYY, one of the protagonists travels into the past because he feels he needs to make an effort to better the past and only then can his family live in bliss and harmony.

I’d like to clarify at the very outset that ACTION REPLAYY does not share any similarity with David Fincher’s THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON [2008], as alleged and discussed. However, in the same breath, let me clarify that the film does bring back memories of the outstandingly executed BACK TO THE FUTURE, a 1985 American science-fiction film directed by Robert Zemeckis. The only difference is that the character played by Michael J. Fox accidentally goes into the past, but in ACTION REPLAYY, the boy seems to be on a mission, like he intentionally wants to get into the past.

Bunty and Tanya. Two people very much in love. Quite naturally, they should get married and live happily ever after, right? But there’s a problem. Bunty will do anything for love – except get married.

It’s not hard to understand his phobia of marriage if one were to look at his parents, Kishen and Mala – two bickering senior citizens, who are so incompatible that they are like a match made in hell even on their 35th wedding anniversary!

So get ready to rewind your life this Diwali with ACTION REPLAYY.
