Movie Review: ‘Force 2’

By Neha Ravindran 

Movie: Force 2

Director: Abhinay Deo

Cast: John Abraham, Sonakshi Sinha, Tahir Bhasin

Genre: Action Thriller
Force 2 is a sequel to Nishikant Kamath’s movie by the same name. It mostly recieved positive reviews for John Abaham’s potrayal of the character of ACP Yadhwardhan. Force 2 again has ACP Yashwardham fkexing his muscles and shoving villians through the walls.
RAW agents in China are getting killed off. Someone is leaking their identity to the the Chinese government. ACP Yash (John Abraham) recieves a package from a dead RAW agent with a coded note revealing the identity of the spy. Paired with Agent KK (Sonakshi Sinha) he has to squeeze out the mole in the system.
So let me begin with a question. How on earth does a man survive with 4 cars filled with trained gunmen aiming endless rounds of bullets at him? Either the gunmen have a pathetic aim (in that case I pity the one paying them) or the man has a cat life. Because nothing else explains an action sequence in which ACP Yash, Agent KK and villian Shiv Verma, survive 6 teams of gunmen continously firing away at them. Phew! I know movies need not follow logic but next time Id prefer a forewarning to kill my brains at home before coming.
Abraham is interesting as the forlorn and brooding policeman whose muscles threaten to rip through his shirt (hulk would have befriended him). Sonakshi is more of a suave RAW agent who was the ornmental piece accompanying Abraham. Her role is way too sketchy and boring. The real treat is Taahir Bhasin as the villian. He has nailed the character with his sharp eyes and crooked smile. Though to tell you the truth towards the end of the movie it hardly makes sense why he was killing the RAW agents.
The cinematography by Imre Juhasz and Mohana Krishna is breathtaking. The movie is shor in Budapest and the sceneic beauty is to die for. Now I know where Iam packing off to for my holidays. Music by Ram Sampath is as expected by him- soulful. Only, none of the songs, except for an item number, have a long running time and are mostly playing as a background score.
Force 2 has a shaky storyline and the action sequences are tiring after a point. It is an average movie and worth one watch. So decide for yourself folks.
 My Verdict: **
