Movie Review: Action Jackson – It’s A Criminal Waste Of Time And Money

action jackson-06It is full of crass humour, it is full of mindless action and it has no script; we are talking about a disaster called Action Jackson that stars not one but two Ajay Devgn’s.

Action Jackson is about Vishi (Ajay Devgn) a small goon in his area but one who is good at heart. His favorite pastime is to bash people up to the tunes of music beats mixed with dancing during action sequences.

Khushi (Sonakshi Sinha) walks in and bumps into him in the changing room of a mall, seeing him naked. This girl starts stalking him simply so she can see him naked again. If this was not enough, Khushi thinks that seeing a naked Vishi brings her good luck, as she suddenly gets lucky enough to marry a guy from the US. Wow! how cool is that.

On one hand, Vishi is chased by Khushi as she wants to see him naked and on the other hand he is being chased by local cops, goons and even a don Xavier (Anand Raj) sitting in Bangkok.

For an hour into the film, one does not get why everyone is behind this musical action guy, but then it’s finally revealed that Vishi resembles an extremely skilled criminal, AJ.

Marina (Manasvi Mamgai), is added to the mix, and as expected, Xavier’s sister is madly in love with AJ. There is so much excitement that inhaling kernels of popcorn seemed better than keeping awake.

As the story progresses, the lives of the two Ajay Devgn’s collide. How the duo wins over the ever-scheming, superbly cunning villains is what completes the incredible epic that is Action Jackson. (Please note, a slight hint of sarcasm, if you’re not sure what sarcasm is, please watch this film, next time, you’ll get sarcasm very well.)

Throw in random cameo’s from Prabhudheva, Shahid Kapoor, Salman Khan and Prabhas and you complete the epic fail.

The lack of a script is also telling in Action Jackson and as expected the screenplay is full of glitches. All the characters except for the obvious Ajay Devgn disappear from the narrative as and when required.

The music is simply atrocious and the background score is worse than what one hears in a low budget television series.

One expected too much from Action Jackson after seeing the trailer, guess the makers should have just released the trailer and not the film, because when this epic bombs, and it will, they won’t know which sand pit they should find to bury their heads in.

To put it briefly, don’t watch Action Jackson if you are a Prabhudheva or Ajay Devgn fan, because who may just end up hating them.

If you absolutely hate someone, tickets to this movie might make for a wonderful birthday gift, assuming it falls on the same day.
