Action Replayy is inspired by Back to the future by Robert Zemeckis, starring Michael Fox. Unfortunately, Vipul Shah is no Robert Zemeckis and Akshay is no Michael Fox. Action Replayy tries to put together comedy, drama and moral lecture which doesn't necessarily create a good concoction as a good script was missing.
Bollywood is trying to show style by recreating the past. We saw it in Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai recently and now again in Action Replayy when 70's era is recreated in terms of fashion. But the core of that period, in terms of what was inherently good, the innocence and the is lost.
Akshay has to seriously reinvent himself, if he wants to compete with the Khans and stay in race for top actors. Ash looks the beauty she is..but oscillates between mediocre and irritating in acting department, especially when trying to enact the nakhras of women in 70's.
Action Replayy won't be 'playying' for long in theaters. So, catch it soon if you want to see Akshay-Ash jodi in action.
