STARRING: Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam, Kunaal Roy Kapoor, Manasvi Mamgai
DIRECTOR: Prabhu Deva
RATING: 2 stars
You might prefer to believe that Action Jackson may be a film regarding Ajay Devgn’s action and Sonakshi Sinha’s histrionics. Well, that’s simply secondary.
Action Jackson is AN emotional story that raises a pertinent question — ‘how so much can you choose a maniac sister who has such unreal however therefore innocent demands?’
The film is a couple of malefactor, a badass bald brother (Anand Raj) who features a sultry, attractive (forever) tempting sister dockage. (yeh ladki hain ya kisi Ka address). dockage is special. She doesn’t breathe. She solely heaves. She doesn’t speak. She solely gasps.
Madam Seduction has fallen for the brooding boy AJ who is married, thus not offered.
The crazy sister doesn’t yield. She is stubborn, sort of a child in an exceedingly honest exacting a balloon. She insists on being married to AJ. Bald bhaiyya’s heart breaks at sister’s misery. He indulges her and diligently sends men to kill AJ’s married woman monthly, sort of a dedicated expat in metropolis causation a reimbursement home.
Action Jackson may be a tribute to Salman Khan films. The writers have idly tweaked Sallu bhai’s celebrated dialogues and given their unhappy versions to Ajay Devgn. thus “ek baar Pine Tree State commitment kar di…becomes no commitment, no appointment, solely penalization.” And “main dil mein aata hoon, samajh main nahi…” becomes “aaya toh dil mein, warna dimaag mein bhi nahi.”
Prabhu Deva is incredibly consistent, together with his heroine (Sonakshi-100-crore-ki-guarantee-ke-saath-Sinha), his action sequences and mind-numbing lines. (Refer previous para!)
Who actors keep dynamical however the setting of needed remains unchanged, untouched. It’s like filling in an exceedingly guide with new actors; Salman (Wanted), Akshay (Rowdy Rathore), Shahid Kapoor (R Raajkumar) and currently Ajay Devgn (Action Jackson). The stencil that has been therefore reserved for the Prabhu Devas, Rohit Shettys of the globe remains as is; a garage, cars aching to be set afire, glass panes of buildings dying to be crashed and bhade ke tattoo waiting to be punched.
In Prabhu Deva’s films, the sound department guys area unit paid quite the writers. (And i’m presumptuous that he hires writers.) The overpaid sound guys work overtime. The knives and swords cling clang and cling clang some additional, the rains pitter patter and pitter patter some additional, the hero’s jacket swings and cuts the wind and makes a sound like somebody is being headless. there’s ample background score for each move, each moment. once Khushi (Sonakshi Sinha) comes on screen, somebody sings within the background, “Ooooo Khushiiiii.” Ditto for Vishi (Ajay Devgn), “Ooooo Vishi.” They even tell Us once the action shifts to foreign locales. somebody whispers in an exceedingly foreign accent, “Bannngggkookkk!!”
So after we don’t seem to be turning deaf with the sound style of the film, we tend to area unit shown such superb bonding between completely different characters. Khushi suffers from terrible luck; like not obtaining tickets for her favorite film (awww, therefore sad!) or obtaining late to figure (Gosh, that’s heartbreaking!). She redefines the primary world tragedies. unhealthy luck isn’t hungry children dying round the world however that additional pinch of salt in Khushi’s soup. I cried at her scenario and superimposed some additional NaCl to my popcorns and to her salty soup. She shortly realises her luck is directly proportional to Vishi’s (Ummm, however do I say this?) crotch. Yes, once she sees a full-Monty-Vishi, she gets lucky at work et al.. the primary half the moving picture thus contains of Khushi’s relentless efforts to trick Vishi into a ‘pants down’ moment!!
There is a vital scene wherever AJ goes to fulfill AN harmed Anusha (Yami-the-former-donor-banker-remember-Gautam) within the hospital. Khushi involves console AJ. She assures him, with a don’t-worry-all-will-be-okay-smile. At this moment, i’m thinking somebody can cry. somebody has got to cry. Violins got to play. Lata kinswoman has got to sing within the background. And cut. AN item variety creeps abreast of us; Sonakshi Sinha in an exceedingly yellow variety, shaking her belly and singing, “Chichora Piya.” See this is often our answer to international cinema. You boggle United States with an exact celestial body and that we can keep you estimation with a Chichora Piya.
Equally puzzling is that the film’s title and therefore the titular casting. Poor Jackson should be painfully moonwalking in his grave each time Ajay Devgn tried air punching and stomping the bottom within the name of recreation. It’s attention-grabbing however Ajay and perspective each begin with ‘A’, and then will Awkwardness.
So if your plan of excellent action is shoving a pointy knife into someone’s mouth, down his throat cutting his intestines. If your plan of excellent humour may be a Sonakshi Sinha wanting to see a unadorned Ajay Devgn. And your plan of excellent music is songs like Keeda, Chichora Piya and Surya Punjabi mast, then, one, i’m FURIOUSLY judgment you. Two, i’m STILL judgment YOU!!
