An Action Hero Movie Review: Ayushmann Khurrana Starrer Thriller Leaves Us With Satire And An Unexpected Climax

Jaideep Ahlawat shines through with spectacular performance with it comes to Haryanvi dialect.

Directed by Anirudh Iyer, An Action Hero, stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Jaideep Ahlawat as lead roles. It has been released in theatres across the country today. Ayushmann was seen posing with a gun and seems rough and uneven in its recent poster. Nora Fatehi and Malaika Arora are in its two songs. Kaushal Shah has worked on its cinematography.


Ayushmann plays Maanav, who is an exuberant of a star, witnesses a low trend towards his professional career and gets into a dramatic scenario in Haryana. He tries to save his life from a revenge taking politician who goes to any degree or situation to fulfill his ego. The dreadful Maanav goes to London to showcase his innocence in his own way.

Jaideep acts as antagonist, Bhoora Solanki, the Municipal Councillor Mandothi village in Haryana where he targets Maanav for his brother Vicky Solanki’s cryptic death.


Ayushmann acts fine considering he went through an immense transformation for his role with abs and muscular body. Jaideep Ahlawat shines through with spectacular performance with it comes to Haryanvi dialect. The dialogue-delivery is superb like ‘Waqt badal gaya hain, ladna maine seekh liya hain’ and ‘Action hero ko gussa aata hai toh public ka paisa vasool hota hai’. The cinematography is quite edgy and has been packed with good comedy in this thriller.


The adventure and drama between both the actors’ characters is like Tom and Jerry chase. The first half is fine but the second half delivers climax, making people wait to know more. The film will struggle to touch the 5 cr mark and will earn 2.25 cr on opening day as per our box-office movie reviews.
