to bounce breezing through a relatively different
genre of romance. It is a science-fiction, romantic-comedy
film starring Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai in lead
roles. Aishwarya Rai, the heroine of the recent blockbuster
Robot kisses silver screens yet again. She is in for
triple celebrations during the month of November.
Her movie release and Diwali celebrations follow soon
after her birthday celebrations on 1st November. This
beautiful actress’s unbeatable fan following
by itself will have the viewers flock the theatres
right from the first show.
Neha Dhupia, Om Puri, Kirron Kher, Randhir Kapoor
and Rajpal Yadav support the lead cast. The story
is based on the 1994 Gujarati Indian play Action Replay.
Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai play the aging parents
of Aditya Rai Kapoor. He finds that they keep arguing
frequently and attributes it to their arranged marriage.
He strongly feels it wouldn’t have been so if
it had been a love marriage between his parents. Anyhow

and different and the skeleton of the story highlights
that the script also carries comedy in par with other
emotions. "It is a fun-genre romantic film,"
Aishwarya says. It is something like a tribute to
the 70s which was the greatest retro era. It can be
safely said that Action Replayy is all about rewinding
your life. It is about Kishen and Mala -- two bickering
senior citizens who "rediscover romance'' on
their 33rd wedding anniversary, when their son gets
them into rewind mode.
There are nine original numbers and four remixes.
Some of the songs are absolute delights to listen
to and are chartbusters already. This Diwali happens
to be music Director Pritam’s double dhamaka
as the other Bollywood release, Golmaal3, also has
its music directed by Pritam.
Though much of it is under wraps, we know what’s
in store when we have savoured the director’s
earlier treats and all the more when the lead pair
is good looking, super-talented and are leading fashion
icons as well. It will certainly be a treat to the
younger generation and rise to be a chartbuster replaying
success again and again to crown the team’s
