Storyline

After witnessing nothing but acrimony between his bickering Mumbai-based parents, Kishen and Mala Chopra, Bunty refuses to marry his girlfriend, Tanya Gonsalves. He is then introduced to her eccentric grandfather, Professor Anthony Gonsalves, and finds that the latter has invented a time-travel machine. Bunty travels back in time - specifically Holi 1975 - when Mumbai was called Bombay and gets to meet his parents when they were younger. He is shocked to find his buck-toothed wimpy father, and his mother - a goon-like tomboy. Amidst the terror of Raman Raghav, the impending Emergency of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, banning of multinationals - including Coca Cola - and the Charisma of superstar Rajesh Khanna - he sets about to try and set things right between not only his bickering parents but also his feuding grandparents. He will soon find out that his mother has another admirer - who will not leave any stone unturned to marry her. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Decent film although it falls below expectations
10 November 2010 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

Action Replayy wasn't all that bad a film. A few laughs here, a few tears there--but it definitely wasn't a "Diwali Dhamaka" as we were all hoping it to be. Aishwarya finally gets into a glamorous avatar in Bollywood in so many years after Dhoom 2, and she is looking stunning. The actor playing the protagonist did a good job, but I think it would have been better and more interesting if a more established star had his role in a film that is on such a grand scale with such huge stars. After being bedazzled by a previous Diwali blockbuster, Om Shanti Om, which also has a major portion of the film taking place 1970s/80s and done masterfully by Farah Khan, Action Replayy just doesn't match up. The depiction of that retro era seems too tacky, forced, and stereotypical.

Even if we overlook these weaknesses, the main drawback of the film is its script. The story is very elementary, it's not gripping at all, the comedy is very weak and just evokes a few chuckles, and the experience is not at all memorable. Also, regarding the lip-syncing trick in the movie, isn't it obvious that the guy lip-syncing is not singing? Music is good. The best tracks are Zor Ka Jhatka and Nakhre.

While the first half is quite a drag, the second half just about makes up for it. The last few scenes are really nice.
