What's common between Farah Khan, Vipul Shah and Ekta Kapoor? Well, it's not difficult to spot the common link. All these filmmakers have the 'retro-factor' in common.

Farah Khan, who bought the 70's back alive with her film OM SHANTI OM has given rise to a new trend. Ever since the movie became a huge hit, the retro-bollywood theme is fast becoming a new genre.

The success percentage of this retro genre is it's another strong point. The recent success of Ekta Kapoor's film ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI had added to the dependability of the retro-driven films. The film was a runaway success.

Now, another film with retro as its main theme - ACTION REPLAYY is getting set for release. With Akshay and Aishwarya taking the retro baton forward in this film, what remains to be seen is whether they manage another hit with the same theme.

As one film expert puts it, "Retro theme is the new success formula that bollywood has discovered. Though it might be paying huge dividends to its makers, but it's not an easy genre to dabble with given the limitations of its plotlines and characterizations."

Well, though the retro-films might have limited plotlines, but the success marathon of such films seems unstoppable for the time being.
