Cast: Akshay Kumar, Aishwarya Rai, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Om Puri, Kirron Kher, Ranvijay Singh
 
Director: Vipul Shah
 
In director Vipul Shah’s Action Replayy a 20-something fellow uses a time machine to travel back into the past, so he can make his parents fall in love, in order to save their marriage in the future. Before you can say Marty McFly – or settle into your seat even – the opening credits of Action Replayy claim the film is based on a Gujarati play, thereby absolving the makers of charges that they’ve plagiarized the cult time-travel comedy Back To The Future.
 
To hell with what the credits claim. Director Vipul Shah and his writers rip off the most pivotal subplot of filmmaker Robert Zemeckis’ enduring hit, and deliver a soulless, charmless picture that is nothing short of a punishment to endure.
 
On the 35th wedding anniversary of his permanently squabbling parents, Bunty (played by Aditya Roy Kapoor) hijacks a mad-genius scientist’s tacky time machine, and is transported back to the 70s when men wore flared pants and women dressed in polka-dotted skirts.
 
His father Kishan (played by Akshay Kumar) is a buck-toothed geek who hardly stands a chance with Bunty’s mum-to-be Mala (played by Aishwarya Rai), a feisty tomboy who lives next door. In Hitch style, Bunty must turn his dad into a dude, and get his mum to fall for him.
 
Sorely lacking in drama and genuine humor, Action Replayy is mind-numbingly dull because there’s no conflict or plot progression, and everything seems to fall into place too conveniently. The dialogues are clunky, the music unimpressive, and the performances indifferent – except for Aishwarya Rai who gets a chance to show off her mean side for a change. The one smart joke in the film is a character who sings in both male and female voices, but that’s not enough to save this sinking ship of a film.
 
I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for director Vipul Shah’s Action Replayy. The only use for a time machine after watching this film, will be to wipe your memory clear of it.
