Action Jackson is a 2014 Indian Bollywood action film released on Dec 05, 2014. The film is directed by Prabhu Deva, produced by Sardar Hassan under banner named Baba Films.
The movie starts with a woman calling for a help when she sees her friend dying in an accident. But goons follow her and she is running to save her friend’s life. But, she is killed by these goons. The story is shifted to India where Jay is working in a hotel. He does many good things for his hotel and then decides to go to Mumbai for Ganesh Utsav. In Mumbai, few goons mistake him as Vishi who is actually a local goon and asks him to bring in their gang. Vishi looks similar to Jay. Vishi is in love with Khushi who is HR executive in a company. She also has a soft corner for Vishi. These goons try to beat Jay, but on seeing police arriving, they let him go. Then Vishi beats them. Then one day, police hands over the case of killing these goons to Jay and he does this. He then goes to Vishi’s place and Vishi is shocked to see his look alike. Then the story is taken into the flashback. Check out this page for more updates on Action Jackson.

Action Jackson is a drinking game of a film, one well over the so-bad-it’s-good line, its main merit being that in a sea of superstar-massaging vehicles, it holds some genuine s..

The film is worth a watch strictly for the cast and the songs. That’s if you’re willing to endure the unbelievably long and violent film for that. Clearly, Prabhu Dheva (Wante..

A Don’s sister falls for his most trusted lieutenant. When he refuses to reciprocate, she vows to destroy him. Her lust and his scorn form the crux of this puerile potboiler.

A must-watch for die-hard Ajay Devgn fans, Action Jackson has intense fight scenes and foot-tapping songs, but lacks logic! The film features a wonderful cast and a few one-liners..

    Nothing’s satisfactory!The movie is not about extracting a hidden talent out from Ajay Devgan. The film is directed by Prabhu Deva. The movie has Ajay Devgan, Sonkashi Sinha and Yami Gautam in the lead roles. As a director, Parbhu Deva gave us many good movies such as R…Rajkumar, Rowdy Rathod and many more. Actually those movies were the remake of south movies. But this movie is not an inheritance to the south movies. It’s an original work worked upon by the director himself. Ajay played the double role in the movie. He played the character of Vishy , a Mumbaikar in the film. The plot of the movie is very straightforward. Vishy lives a very contented life with Khushi (Sonakshi Sinha) who is queen of bad lucks. She loves Vishy and becomes his lucky charm. Soon after this, the film takes a u-turn and he goes to play the double lead in the film. What makes him to play a double lead? This is the crux of the story. Actually the story doesn’t hold you till the end. It has no charm to make you feel that something is going on the films. The film has no logic and has got no gravity. As an audience, it is just waste of money to watch the film. Talking about the performances, it made me realize that Ajay was not in his mood to play the double role in the film because you as an audience expect more from Ajay Devgan after the success of Singham 2. This movie is definitely not the best of his performances. Sonakshi is bright with her character. Yami and Kunal Kapoor too gave their best. The film has no quality contents that will make you to extract something from the movie. After the movie gets over, you are in the no mood to watch Ajay Devgan’s next movie. The film has Manasvi Mamgai, who is introduced in the film. Yes, she is impressive with her work. The film’s stunts done by Ajay Devgan are worth eye pleasing and you surely cannot miss them. The film is all about mindless comedy acts and there are no signs that you get through the film’s story. The film has got no quality content. The screenplay is good with the support of good cinematography. The movie will be impressive only for Sonakshi’s fans. But not to those who are die-hard Ajay Devgan’s fans. The film’s dialogues are worth capturing. The film has things flying in the air. You really can’t expect anything more than just things flying off the things fully in the air. Action Jackson is only about actions with nothing clean. Prabhu Deva’s direction was missing from the film. The songs are good but they don’t hold your seats throughout the movie. The movie’s end is also very normal with nothing new. The Bangkok locations are good but you cannot completely go with only the locations for the film.
