Action Jackson Movie Review
Planet Movies Review: ***
Genre: Action, Romance, Comedy
Action Jackson is a heady cocktail mix of a typical Prabhu Deva style bollywood dance, action & romance. It is stylized action, romance & dance on drugs !
Prabhu Deva has yet again delivered a commercial full blown action romance & comedy flick. It features Ajay Devgn in a double role, alongside Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam and Manasvi Mamgai as the female leads and Anand Raj, portraying the main antagonist.
The story revolves around Jai/Ajay Devgn who is a professional criminal who works for Anant Raj. Jai (Ajay Devgn) meets a homely girl Yami Gautham who transforms such that Ajay now wants to leave the criminal profession & wants to lead a peaceful life with Yami.
Ananth Raj has a sister played by Manasvi Mamgai who falls head over heels in love with Ajay/Jai only to be rejected by him. But the vamp that Manasvi’s character is that, she wants to get hold of Ajay/Jai at any cost by hook or crook.
There is loads of stylized action song & romance in this track.
There is another track where we have Ajay who plays Vishy & Sonakshi who falls in love with Ajay/Vishy & Kunaal Roy Kapoor plays Vishy/Ajay’s friend. This track consists of loads of comedy, romance & fun.
How the two Ajay Devgn’s cross their path & why forms the crux of the story.
The story & screenplay is tailer-made for a bollywood action masala film.
Manasvi Mamgai in her debut, oozes sex appeal & has exposed to the core to announce that she has arrived in the bollywood scene of sensuous films.
Sonakshi Sinha looks cute with her chubby looks & has danced well in the songs. Yami has done justice to the homely girl character though she gets the least screen time.
Music of the film by Himesh Reshammiya is situational & good with some of the tracks being top notch such as Gangster Baby & Keeda.
Overall the film is a treat to Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi & Prabhu Deva fans. The films does justice to the Genre it stands for.
The length of the movie however could have been shortened with some better editing.
