Action Replay has been branded as the Super Hit movie of the year despite the fact that it has not even released yet. A big chunk of the credit for this should go to the music director for this movie – Pritam Chakraborty who has belted out some foot tapping numbers yet again. The music has been receiving a lot of rave reviews especially the fun track ‘Zor ka jhatka hai zoro se laga’ by Daler Mehdi and Richa Sharma. Directed and produced by veteran Vipul Shah, the movie stars Akshay Kumar, Aishwarya Rai Bacchan and Neha Dhupia in lead roles while Kirron Kher, Om Puri, Aditya RoyKapoor, Ranvijay Singh, Rajpal Yadav and Sudeepa Singh play other supporting characters.
The movie has been written by the talented duo of Suresh Nair and Atish Kapadia and the classy cinematography by Sejal Shah is worth mentioning in the song ‘Bekhabar ae bekhabar’ which is aired in the recent promos. The cute retro style choreography has been done by Ganesh Acharya and the lyrics to the songs have been penned by Irshad Kamil.
The movie is an adaptation of a Gujarati play by the same name written and performed in 1994 to packed theatres. Before this film, Vipul Shah had also made ‘Aankhen’ which too was an adaptation of a successful Gujarati play. This is a time travel comedy based on the tricks of the film – Back to the Future Part I. The movie is based in Mumbai and spans over five decades. Here a son travels back in time to meet his parents before they met to see if he could help them sort out their problems and not marry at all if that could be a possibility.
Action Replay promises to be a laugh riot and the lead pair looks very stylish in their 60’s clothing of bell bottoms and long tresses.
