    Posters for Action Replayy, an Indian romantic comedy film involving time travel, directed by Vipul Shah and starring Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai. I haven’t seen this film, but judging from the reviews quoted on Wikipedia, it’s not exactly a must-see.

    The typographic choices are more interesting: The logo uses Tutti Paffuti NF, a digital interpretation of Stymie Black Italic (in or before 1973), which in turn appears to be a copy of Dave West’s Behemoth Italic Swash (Photo-Lettering, c. 1967). The version by Nick Curtis (2007) adds diacritics and ligatures, but doesn’t include all of the alternates of Stymie Black Italic.

    “Rewind Your Life” looks a lot like one of the styles of Bauhaus Prisma/Prisma Graphic, a series of multiline variations made at Photo-Lettering in c. 1970. This style (#8159) was digitized in the early 1990s as Prisma Graphic, but seems to be no longer available. The smaller type is in Slug Single (FaceType, 2009), the bold solid style of a font system actually intended for bicolor layering.
