FORCE movie review: Flop story of a cop

John Abraham’s latest film is just another action movie with a trite concept

If you want to enjoy watching the brawny men in the movie, you have to leave your brains behind. John Abraham, who portrays the role of a narcotics cop (Yashwardhan), may have made a concerted effort to throw a heavy bike around and treat it like a piece of toy, but the beefy hunk is unable to make this three-hour-or-so movie work and arouse even the remotest of emotions. Playing the role of an impassive cop, John doesn’t do much, apart from being himself and throwing his hulky weight around, pun intended!

We appreciate director Nishikant Kamat’s decision to incorporate a fresh face in the movie. The handsome Vidyut Jamwal, who plays Vishnu, is a breath of spicy Bollywoody air. A little voice modulation and we will have a new star. Vidyut comes to Force‘s rescue and sprinkles freshness on a banal story. Force is not an out-and-out entertainer – it’s just an off-shoot of the many hardcore intense action movies Bollywood has produced (Ghajini, Sarfarosh and Baazi to name a few). What stands out in this conventional backdrop is the chemistry between Genelia D’souza and John. The petite heroine and beefy hero combination works for us. Their chemistry is not shown as being extraordinary, rather it’s simple and sweet, with Gen prodding John and convincing him to step into the fancy world of romance and start leading a normal life.

After making good movies like Dombivli Fast and Mumbai Meri Jaan, Nishikant Kamat disappoints us with this trite concept. What leaves us crestfallen is the fact that a filmmaker of his calibre has joined the ongoing grind of producing the same boring films.  Watch the movie when you have absolutely nothing else to do, or wait till it’s aired on television. All the women out there, the droolworthy men and the cute romance will help you endure this yet another run-of-the-mill cop movie.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    movie is flopped, because the hereon was died too. She must live with hero then movie should make sense, other wise result is 0. In this movie they showed that the enemy is always win, its not good lesson.

    Clearly Deboshree Ghosh doesn’t know what his talking about! His thoughts are still stuck in the early 2000 where we’re used to seeing the same old dull stories. Whereas this film is unique in action sequences, story telling, a villains principles, production and directing. I believe the film was well made to an international level where you get to see the real India with all the locations i.e, coach station at night fight/chase, the dock yard scenery at the end was well shot. it’s a shame that critics like Ghosh slam a film with a new concept and creativity just by looking at box office openings (remember The Hurt Locker did not do well at the box office but won big awards) the moral is…when will Indians learn to appreciate good Indian films??
    God bless south Indian films! Because Bollywood is running out of creativity.
