Sonakshi Sinha’s film Action Jackson starring Ajay Devgn has finally hit the theatres. The leading lady has been promoting the same whole heartedly, in stylish and chic avatars.

The beauty was spotted at the screening of her action flick, in all black. The actress teamed her outfit with matching moccasins and a sling bag.We caught Sona giving the shutterbugs her action pose, which seems to have become a signature style one for the babe. Sona has been spotted pulling off the same stint for many promotional events as well.

A signature style pose, seems to have become a trend with the B-town celebs. If you notice, each star has that one pose, they are comfortable sporting in front of the camera. For example, Deepika Padukone has the overdone pouting pose,Ranveer Singh has his eccentric and quirky ones, followed by Arjun Kapoor who is often seen sporting the the laid back and lazy look for the clicking clan.

Well looks like Sona has joined the list with her action pose! Who’s next? Let us wait and watch.

Action Jackson movie review: This Ajay Devgn-Sonakshi Sinha-Yami Gautam starrer is confusing, mindless and logic-less!

Prabhu Dheva’s latest flick may have been hyped a lot but has it been well made? Read on to find out…

Prabhu Dheva directorial, Action Jackson, has created a lot of buzz ever since it’s trailer release. The film that stars Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam, Manasvi Mamgai and Kunal Roy Kapur will hit the screens today.

What is it about:

Vishy (Ajay Devgn) is a fun loving and carefree small time crook and Moosa (Kunal Roy Kapur) is his friend as well as accomplice in all his actions, adventures and escapades. It is a coincidence that Vishy meets Khushi (Sonakshi) one day. Khushi is considered the unluckiest girl by her friends because bad luck follows her like a shadow everywhere. But her luck changes the day she meets Vishy. And then the realization that Vishy is lucky for her dawns on her when she bumps into him for the third time. From then on she relentlessly tries to pursue him so that her luck changes. As a result there are a lot of funny incidents that lead to them falling in love with each other. One day a man accidentally sees Vishy’s picture and gets stunned and he makes a call and somehow tries to inform Mafioso Xavier, a deadly and dreaded international Mafia Don. Xavier immediately dispatches his notorious henchmen to Mumbai. Vishy is unaware that a whole network of Police and Underworld are on the lookout for him. Vishy is in shock at the sudden turn of events and soon a deadly secret unfolds before him. We won’t disclose this secret for those who want to watch the film.

What’s hot:

Ajay Devgn looks hot in his well sculpted avatar and is seen bare chested in most of the scenes. Sonakshi Sinha, as always, has pulled off the bubbly talkative love interest of the hero very well. Despite the minimal screen space, Yami Gautam makes the best of her presence. Manaswi Mamgai, the newbie, ups the hotness quotient of the film. Kunal Roy Kapur and Ajay have some great comic punch lines which will leave you splits. The music by Himesh Reshammiya is decent and foot tapping, however, the songs lose their charm because of tacky lyrics. Himesh does belt out a great romantic number which features Yami and Ajay.

What’s not:

The plot of Action Jackson is very confusing so much that you’ll have no idea as to what’s going on throughout the film. Prabhu Dheva’s direction just simply falls flat here. Even an actor as brilliant as Ajay does nothing more than to show-off his hot bod. Manaswi Mamgai has throughout portrayed only one expression, which makes her look like some Ramsay Brothers’ horror film actress. And Yami Gautam and Kunal Roy Kapur’s acting talent seems to have gone wasted for the most part.

Prabhu Dheva is a brilliant dancer and he proves the same at the end with his dance moves in the AJ theme song, but he sure shouldn’t have asked Ajay to imitate him. Ajay seemed uncomfortable doing the dance steps and in some scenes you could actually see Ajay trying to look at the choreographers behind the camera for help.

Also defying all logic, the movie has scenes where Manasvi kills people by stabbing them, but somehow mysteriously they comeback alive in the end. The villain’s gang has a dress code which further reduces credibility. And to top it up, a huge-built henchman from the villain’s gang gets beaten to pulp by just one slap of Ajay Devgn (Wow!). Ajay’s double role was an unnecessary element since all he had to do was beat up the goons. So the plot could have been kept simple by just that.

Verdict:

Only a die-hard Ajay fan can walk out of the film without regretting the of time and money spent and wasted on the film.

Arjun Kapoor’s Superman, Anushka Sharma-Sushant Singh Rajput’s Chaar Kadam top the charts this week!

Here is the list of songs that have become a hit this week

It’s Trending Tunes day at BollywoodLife. In this section, we bring you a list of five songs that are topping the charts this week. Take a look.

Superman - The song from the upcoming film, Tevar features Arjun Kapoor, who is paying a ode to his real life mentor Salman Khan. And it’s a song, which all Salman fans would love to hear. It’s an absolute delight to watch Arjun trying to imitate his mentor in the song. And he does a pretty darn good job.

Radha Nachegi - Again this is a song from Tevar, which features Sonakshi Sinha. The song is picturised on a grand scale, with expensive sets and incredible cinematography. Plus Sona’s amazing dance moves in this one are something to watch out for.

Chaar Kadam – This song from Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming film, PK is a romantic track that doesn’t feature Aamir Khan. Instead, it shows the aww-worthy chemistry between Sushant Singh Rajput and Anushka Sharma and leaves a refreshing after-taste. Chaar Kadam is an easy-breezy romantic track picturised in stunning locations.

Let’s Celebrate - While Superman and Radha Nachegi featured Arjun and Sonakshi seperately, Let’s Celebrate song from Tevar features the duo together along with Pakistani-Dutch singer Imran Khan, who has crooned this party number. And all of them are redefining swag in this one, we have to admit.

Dance Basanti – Shraddha Kapoor’s first item number from the recently released film, Ungli is quite catchy. The song features Emraan Hashmi along with the Kapoor lass, who is looking smoking hot in her red outfit. The track is definitely worth watching and hearing.

Action Jackson quick movie review: Ajay Devgn-Sonakshi Sinha’s action comedy will leave you confused!

Prabhu Dheva and Ajay Devgn’s much awaited film will hit the theatres tomorrow

When the first trailer of Prabhu Dheva’s Action Jackson starring Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam and Manasvi Mamgai was released we were mighty impressed with the overdose of high flying action scenes. Our critic Prateek Sur is watching the film at special show at the moment and has sent us his first impression of the film.

Prateek says, “Prabhu Dheva’s latest offering revolves around a done to death plot where a small town guy finds a lookalike of himself who turns out to be a hot shot gangster. It is about how a small town guy’s life changes after he finds out about his lookalike. So far, its quite confusing as to who is the good and the bad one is among the two guys.  So far the storyline isn’t clear. Yami Gautam has a meatier role than Sonakshi. The songs are oddly placed and come in at inappropriate intervals further confusing the audience. The only thing that saves the film are the comic punches between Ajay and Kunal Roy Kapur.”

Lets hope the film picks up in the second half. Keep watching this space for full review soon.

Rajinikanth’s Lingaa to not release in Kerala because of Kochadaiiyaan’s losses?

Here’s the latest trouble that the superstar’s upcoming magnum opus has run into….

Kochadaiiyaan, Rajinikanth’s last release, was a disaster. The movie was unable to recover its money and many distributors went into losses. Now it seems those losses have come back to haunt Rajinikanth’s upcoming release Lingaa. Our little birdies inform us that Lingaa’s theatrical rights are yet to be sold in Kerala and thus it might not release in the state on the slated December 12 date. Also, the other southern states may follow suit. So why are the distributors boycotting the film? We wonder…

Our khabroos inform us that the Kerala distributors’ association has informed all the members of its union to not buy the rights for Lingaa. The reason they stated is that there is a huge pending debt that the makers of Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiiyaan need to pay them. So in order to get that cleared up asap, they should boycott distributing Lingaa. The association points out that due to Rajinikanth’s last film, may distributors faced immense losses and went out of business because the film got delayed a lot and even on release, failed to create any impact at the box office. So maybe if Rajinikanth gets Kochadaiiyaan makers pay some compensation to the out-of-work distributors and get them back in business, Lingaa might see a release in Kerala. The Plaza Group, which had acquired the distribution and exhibition rights for Kochadaiiyaan, had spent astronomical amounts for the film’s promotion but all went down the drain as the motion capture flick failed to create any buzz among fans and critics.

Grapevine has it that the Lingaa makers are trying to sort out the issue and get the film a release in Kerala. They are worried that if Kerala doesn’t release the film, other states too might soon follow suit, which will be a huge blow to the Rajinikanth film.

Kannada producer Rockline Venkatesh is producing Lingaa and the entire distribution has been taken up by Eros International at a whopping Rs 120 crore. Lingaa will release on Rajinikanth’s birthday. It will be opening on 5000 screens which is the biggest for any Kollywood flick ever. A lot of hopes are pinned on the success of the film and we too expect the movie to have a smooth release everywhere. Hai na, BollywoodLifers?
