Armed with brilliant cinematography, Sayantan Mukherjee pulls a coup of sorts, when it comes to the actual action sequences.

The cast doesn't have big stars to boast of. The director, who has one more film to his credit, didn't bother much about this one's promotions either. And you might just have missed it completely, if not for the lead actor.

Sayantan Mukherjee's Action stays true to its name. There's enough dhishoom-dhishoom, enough drama, enough glam quotient... and enough action. When Raka (Barkha Sengupta), a hot, 20-something, gun-toting coal-mafia's amorous advents are rejected by college-goer Akash (Om), she turns his life into a living hell. So, Akash, along with his family, flees Ranigunj in order to escape Raka's wrath and joins a college in Kolkata under the alias of Rohit Roy. Here, he meets Rini (Megha Chakraborty) and romance blooms. But is Raka ready to let go off Akash so soon?

Frequent oscillation between the present and the past in the first half is confusing. Also, a good half an hour is devoted to redundant description of Akash and Rini's college life. The humour is slapstick, sometimes downright offensive and Kharaj Mukherjee, as the pot-bellied lecherous hostel superintendent, is left wasted in a stock avatar. But it's the song, an entire one at that, dedicated to farting (yes, you read that right), that leaves you squirming in your seat. Aami jamini, tumi shoshi he turns into 'Aami Charini, tumi cherecho, cherecho gandho baje..." Like, seriously!

The second half helps bring the puzzle blocks together. But that's not much of a relief since the resultant story falls flat. Add to thaat Barkha Sengupta's accent and poor dialogue delivery. Not even Nusrat Jahan's sizzling performance on Chicken tandoori could have elevated Action from the level of average.

But wait, there's one saving grace, Om, as Akash/ Rohit. He is pleasant on the eyes and his chiseled features actually force you to sit straight and take notice. What's more? The guy can dance too! Comedy, however, is not his forte. But cut him some slack, he is just two-films old in this industry. Though Swagata Mukherjee, as Raka's mom, is heavily influenced by Supriya Pathak Kapur's Baa and Leela's mother in Ram Leela, she manages to convince the audience. However, Megha Chakraborty as Rini never stood a chance to show off her acting prowess.

However, armed with brilliant cinematography, Sayantan Mukherjee pulls a coup of sorts, when it comes to the actual action sequences.
