Action Replay : Experience the journey before Step in theater

Folks, Read this fun filled comic, Action Replay from start to finish is based on this story. This comic was published in 1995. I was wondering how this beautiful, unique and hilarious story can be skipped from bollywood  scriptwriters eyes, Vipul shah finally found this glorious and unique idea and pick it for next movie. Guys, experience this fun ride . Your wait for movie will be breathless after reading, I promise.

  1. wld read it tommorow,getting sleepy now

    • Sure, But read entire comic. This is full fun. I wasted my three months for writing script based on this comic, but when i came to know that Vipul is filming on similar story line, I was just like MAD and depressed. But never mind, as none of us was owner of original idea, so it was like race and vipul win. But i am still wondering how he able to read this comic ?

      • Writing something so cant read this but will surely read tommorrow. i used to read all Raj comics, Diamond comics, Manoj Comics, Tulsi comics 🙂 but cant remember this one though remember crookbond 🙂 . crook bond and bankelal were the most hilarious comic characters.

        Yakuza , Vipul shah says that his movie is inspired from one of his plays , ther might be a case that th eplay wd have been inspired from this one.

        However sad to knw ur efforts went waste . vaise u never mentioned anywhere that u write scripts as well . maybe iam nt that old so have missed out 😦

      • have read just one page will complete tommorrow par mera feedback pehle hi sun lo , i loved what u tried with this post building the curiosity and then giving this nice surprise.
        Iam an old comics lover so i liked this one 🙂

  2. Please don’t forget to give your feedback on this bollybusiness exclusive after FULL READ.

  4. If you notice on first page itself, This comic starts on similar note as taran Adarsh has written in his article “A teenage youth watches his parents bickering and squabbling. This upsets him no end.”

  5. Yakuza bhai. Its morning here and i hv already gotten up for today. Waiting for ur e mail n plz give prediction of dabangg as well.

  6. Yakuza

  7. yakuza, this comic book looks more of an inspiration from english movie “Back to the Future” starring Michale J Fox

  8. the comics is a rip-off of the movie ‘Back To The Future’.

  9. Sorry, but there is nothing unique about this comic.

  14. can any one tell me what is in this comic? plz let me know a little story and main idea. plzzz

    • the hero of this story Crookbond see his mother and father fighting and then talking abt an ajooba who helped them to meet and fall in love. later on one of his friend who is scientist tells him that he has made a time car (sort of time machine) so due to certain circumstances crookbond gets back to era when his parents were young and when he sees them fighting all the time , so he decides to help his father who is yet trying to woo his mother but hasnt met with any success so crookbond helps his father woo his mother and they get married .
      when crook bond comes back to original time , he gets to knw that he was the ajooba who helped his moether and father fall in love and marry .

      It isnt much fun when i give u an english account of this story, its more fun to read the desi dialogues used in the comics

      • absolutely, fun resides in writing, which can be experienced only by reading book. Ansari was awesome writer, His humor was bone tickling.

        • dont knw hw big is ur comics collection but i have few comics of Nagraj , dhruv and chacha choudhary . will coordinate with u so that if u dnt have it u can upload here and keep in ur collection . however the chances of what iam saying looks bleak,if i take into consideration ur love for comics 🙂 😉

  15. Wowwwww Excellent read. What a comic and concept. “Agar ye mere bapu se nafrat karti rahi to ye meri mummy kaise banegi ? Mera janam kaise hoga ? ” LMAOOOOOOOOOOO …… 😀

  16. Champagne!

    Taran Adarsh Reviews Dabangg and concludes:

    On the whole, DABANGG is a full on entertainer with three aces – Salman Khan like never before, stylish action and super music. It’s a foregone conclusion that DABANGG will open huge. As far as the business prospects are concerned, the film will set new benchmarks, so much so that DABANGG will be one of the yardsticks to gauge the level of business in times to come. Sure to fetch an earth-shattering opening, the film will create a pandemonium at the box-office, cementing the status of Salman Khan as the darling of the masses and making the distributors laugh all the way to the bank. It has Blockbuster written all over it!

  17. HE HE .. And biggest fun was when professor thumka cheer up after seeing his Time machine car, which was supposed to be successful in future. The way he became happy : “MERI MEHNAT SAFAL HUI, MAIN MAHAAN HUN” LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO …… HILARIOUS … 😀

  18. Dabangg review
    The fight between good and bad has been the fodder of many a Hindi film of 1970s and 1980s. In fact, it wouldn’t be erroneous to state that these films dominated the cinema of yore and a lot of us, who have grown up on masala films/wholesome entertainers, will vividly recall the serpentine queues outside cinema halls and a mad scramble to book the tickets of those films. Hardcore masala films were relished with glee by the audience then.

    However, for some inexplicable reason, masala films became extinct or should I say, disappeared from the face of Hindi cinema over a period of time. GHAJINI and WANTED revived this genre, bringing back memories of the bygone era. Now DABANGG takes this genre one step ahead.

    Write your own movie review of Dabangg
    Be forewarned. DABANGG is rustic, has loads of action, harps on the age-old mother-son and varied relationships [half-brother, step-father], eventually turns into a vendetta fare, has a number of songs placed smartly in the narrative [including an item number]… but the packaging is slick and polished. Sure, it’s old wine, but packed in a brand new bottle, with a new brand ambassador [Salman Khan] endorsing this masalathon.

    Most importantly, it has Salman like never before. Breathing fire and venom, Chulbul Pandey aka Robinhood Pandey taps Salman’s star power like no film has and the result is sheer magic. In fact, DABANGG stands on three pillars – Salman’s star power, smashing stunts and super music.

    Final word? Salman fans, rejoice! You walk in DABANGG with 100% expectations and you exit with 200% gratification. Entertainment guaranteed. This film will create a pandemonium of sorts, a mass hysteria, crushing old records and setting new benchmarks at the box-office.

    Set in Uttar Pradesh, DABANGG is a story of Chulbul Pandey [Salman Khan], a totally fearless but corrupt police officer with unorthodox working methods. But even the most fearless at times face a tough fight with their innermost demons. Chulbul has had a bitter childhood. His father passed away when he was very young, after which his mother [Dimple Kapadia] married Prajapati Pandey [Vinod Khanna]. Together, they had a son Makhanchan [Arbaaz Khan].

    Prajapati favors Makhanchan, which does not go down well with Chulbul. He decides to take control of his destiny and detaches himself from his step-father and half-brother. His sole attachment is his mother. However, after his mother’s demise and an unsuccessful attempt to mend wounds, Chulbul snaps all ties with his step-father and half-brother.

    Rajo [Sonakshi Sinha], with her unique perspective of life, enters his world and turns life upside down. Chulbul starts to see life more positively and also gets sensitized to the value of a family. But his detractors, especially the dubious Cheddi Singh [Sonu Sood], have their own vested interests and emerge as spokes in the wheels, putting one brother against the other. Makhanchan ends up carrying out an act oblivious to the consequences.

    When Makhanchan realizes he has been used, he turns to Chulbul. Will Chulbul take his extended hand? Will the brothers be able to thwart their detractors?

    The job of a promo is to give a gist of the film and prepare the audience well in advance about what to expect when they saunter into an auditorium. The promos of DABANGG have sent the right signals to the audience about it being a paisa vasool entertainer. Let’s face it, DABANGG has nothing ground-breaking to offer as far as its plot is concerned. We’ve visited similar stories in the past, but what makes DABANGG shine, and shine brightly, is Salman’s star power, which camouflages the aberrations wonderfully. The darling of the masses has been cast in a role that his fans love to see him in, which explains why this film works from start to end.

    Like I pointed out earlier, DABANGG is special for two more reasons: S. Vijayan’s stunts and Sajid-Wajid’s music, with an additional song by Lalit Pandit. Talking of action scenes, Salman’s introduction at the start and the fight-to-finish in the climax will send the masses in frenzy. To state that the action scenes are outstanding, especially the fight in the finale, would be an understatement. In the finale fight, when Salman’s shirt tears apart and the rippling muscles and the bare-chest fight ensues, mark my words, it will lead to chaos at mass-dominated centres, especially at single screens. The climax will be one of the prime reasons for repeat viewing, for sure.

    It’s difficult to accommodate music in an action film, but Sajid-Wajid come up with a melodious score. The title track, ‘Tere Mast Mast Do Nain’ and ‘Munni’ [composed by Lalit Pandit] are the icing on the cake.

    Director Abhinay Singh Kashyap is in his element. He’s made an out and out entertainer with an eye at the masses and he succeeds in his endeavour. Doing justice to vintage formula is no cakewalk, let’s not forget. Besides, the director stays away from going overdramatic while handling the dramatic and emotional moments. This explains why you don’t exit the theatre with a spinning head. Mahesh Limaye’s cinematography is perfect. I’d like to make a note of the editing [Pranav V. Dhiwar], which is super-slick in action scenes. Dialogue, especially those delivered by Salman, will be greeted with claps and whistles. Especially the one ‘Itne chhed karunga’.

    Salman Khan is the boss, when it comes to playing to the masses. This film reaffirms this truth. The role provides him ample opportunity to prove his star power and he does it with remarkable ease. Let me put it on record. DABANGG is yet another landmark film in his career, besides MAINE PYAR KIYA, HUM AAPKE HAIN KOUN, JUDWAA [tapping the funny side], TERE NAAM [tapping the emotional side] and WANTED.

    Sonakshi Sinha looks fresh, acts confidently and pairs off very well with Salman. Most importantly, she delivers the right expressions and is not overpowered by the galaxy of stars in the cast. Arbaaz Khan is efficient. He underplays his part well. Sonu Sood is electrifying, matching up to Salman at every step. In fact, the fight in the finale between Salman and Sonu is awe-inspiring.

    Vinod Khanna is excellent in a role that has grey shades. Dimple Kapadia is truly wonderful. Anupam Kher is, as always, good. Ditto for Om Puri. Mahesh Manjrekar doesn’t get ample scope. Mahi Gill is alright. Tinnu Anand is effective. Murli Sharma is nice. Malaika Arora Khan sizzles in the ‘Munni’ track.

    On the whole, DABANGG is a full on entertainer with three aces – Salman Khan like never before, stylish action and super music. It’s a foregone conclusion that DABANGG will open huge. As far as the business prospects are concerned, the film will set new benchmarks, so much so that DABANGG will be one of the yardsticks to gauge the level of business in times to come. Sure to fetch an earth-shattering opening, the film will create a pandemonium at the box-office, cementing the status of Salman Khan as the darling of the masses and making the distributors laugh all the way to the bank. It has Blockbuster written all over it!

  25. Hey Yakuza Bhai,
    Thanx for this comics.
    I enjoyed it while reading.
    Though this was Published in 95, but somehow at that time, I couldn’t read this one, otherwise I’ve read most of the comics of all publications till 97-98.
    P.S : Read abt ur Script Incident and felt bad bur I hope that surely u will write some wonderful script in coming future.
    But, one thing is for sure,
    Man you are Really Multi Talented.
    Even I didn’t know that you are a Script Writer also.
    Keep it up bro.

  26. Read abt ur Script Incident and felt bad but I hope that surely u will write some wonderful script in coming future.

    • Hey Ali bhai, Thanks Dear. Never mind yaar. I have 5 more scripts completed since 5 years now. Its my hobby(just like this blog) to pen on one script at a time . Its not easy to sell the script, In fact till date except me, none even looked at it. But i am taking it as a hobby, so no worries. The day i will write keeping monetary benefits in mind, i will fall flat.
      By the way, i have moved on to another story idea now and this time my inspiration is my late friend Prajapati (who commit suicide out of bad marriage relation). That incident forced me to think about marriage institution and social norms in a different way all together. This script will be tribute to my late friend.

  27. Yakuza bhai dekha promo , it has a similar dialogue ” arre mujhe paida to hone do meri maa mujhe”

    Vaise i was right its Aditya roy playing AKKI- Aish’s son

  28. Its strange that the orginal action heroes among the current brigade like Ajay Devgan and Akki are doing comic roles, and the orignal choclate heroes like aaamir, Salman, SRk are getting into action roles i would love to see Akki back in action roles, his stunts were fabulous even in 1990’s when the camera technology and budget of the movie wasnt that great
