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)

Tad Stupid
13 December 2010 | by AvinashPatalaySee all my reviews

Time machine is not an alien subject to Bollywood. "Krish" had touch- based on it to a certain degree. Had Shekhar Kapur devoted more time and conviction we would have seen Aamir Khan/ Raveena Tandon/ Naseeruddin/ Rekha in our own desi version of "Time Machine". Period drama, nostalgia, fashion, expensive sets, music, gaffs you name it, the time travel subject offers vast potential to deliver a well rounded entertaining product. Sadly "Action Replay" concentrates only on costumes (predominantly the prints and the polka dots) and the of course the sets. The screenplay is the biggest culprit and it appears as if it has been written and shot in parts making the narrative appear disjointed.

Akshay Kumar:: Very bad characterisation. The underdog personality was not fleshed out properly. The hairstyle was a big downer and so were his buck teeth.

Aishwarya:: Again her tomboy personality could have been worked upon. She was okay but only at a few places.

Adiya Roy Kapur:: Attempts hard to come across naturally but it shows.

Ranvijay Singh:: Should have watched a few more yesteryear villains (likes of Ranjeet/ Prem Chopra) to create a believable character.

Randhir Kapoor:: As a mad scientist, he was OK in his job.

Neha Dhupia:: Hardly any meat in the role.

Om Puri & Kiron Kher:: Completely wasted.

Rajpal Yadav:: A few good one-liners but predominantly irritating character.

The entire team should be lauded for keeping the diversion alive in the media circles that "Action Replay" was a copy of "Benjamin Button" while they were cooking a blatant plagiarised "Back to the future" behind the closed doors. Keeping the words "Back to the future" away from the media deserves a second round of applause and perhaps a quarter of the entire budget.

Music which is generally a strong points of Vipul Shah is a downer too. On the whole, "Action Replay" fails to delivers. Vipul Shah, you need to pull up your socks!!
