Action Replay Movie Review

*******Spoiler alert!*******

Bunty is against the institution of marriage as his parents are always fighting and have never had a peaceful day. Enter his girlfriend and her uncle (Randhir Kapoor) aka the time machine inventor, who oh so generously explains the secret that time travel is possible by travelling faster than the speed of sound (I almost fainted at this epiphany).

Bunty then goes home to see his parents talk divorce and decides to steal/borrow the time machine to fix his parents marriage! Going back, he sees his mother is a tom boy-Kajal dada, hum paanch style (what perfect casting with Ash I say!) and his father a cowardly douche, aptly nick named Najuk Kali and Kitchen Kumar.He then sets about improving or rather giving his father a personality (basically saying "Awaaz Niche" every 2 mins) and convincing mommy dear to display her feminine inner self! His mission is endangered by maternal granny's enmity against paternal grandfather and the former grandparent's stringent opposition to love marriage. After a typical scene of getting grandparents to accept his parents love, he returns to a present where parents are happily in love and proposes to girlfriend to live happily ever after!

For the duration of this monstrosity you rail against yourself for even attempting to watch this movie and vow never to step into a movie theatre again. The only bits I liked were:
  1. Aditya Roy Kapoor, the guy playing Ash & Akshay's son
  2. The joke "Malika Sherawat ne murder mein kapde pehne the?"
  3. The song "Zor ka Jhatka"
My advice is do not watch the movie, you will regret it. Rating is 1/5
