Force 2 review, action in line with Mission Impossible, The Peacemaker and a good Day To Die Hard
Force 2 Cast: John Abraham, Sonakshi Sinha, Tahir Raj Bhasin
Director: Abhinay Deo
This movie is a sequel to the original movie of the same name. in force 2, ACP Yashvardhan returns as a faster and for more action. The movie is mostly set in Budapest
Story: Mumbai police’s officer Yashvardhan (John Abraham) receives a courier which is actually a code sent by his friend in RAW (Research And Analysis Wing). It turns out to be the beginning of a high profile case which takes him to Budapest. Agent KK (Sonakshi Sinha) is his boss and partner on the mission.
They are up against an international syndicate run by Shiv Sharma (Tahir Raj Bhasin): he looks like a regular guy, but deep beneath him he is a highly motivated criminal.
On the face of it, there’s nothing wrong in this setting: Perfect for high speed chases and daredevil stunts. Trouble is, things start getting out of the director’s grip very soon into the film and that is not good news.
The talkative villain likes to play mouth organ, and that provides for a good background score for some action scenes. The only problem is that every such scene ends with Abraham pointing a gun at Bhasin’s temple. After a while you wish to see the villain dead just to get rid of the recurring shot. Nobody obliges though.
Initially, Abhinay Deo, the director, tries to infuse some quirky elements. Even John Abraham attempts dead-pan humour. But these efforts give way to lethargic chase sequences. Budapest’s scenic beauty takes the attention further away from what’s happening on the screen.
But what a location! Breathtaking aerial shots are Force 2’s biggest attraction.
Imre Juhasz and Mohana Krishna’s cinematography has captured the city in its complete glory. The geography of Budapest unfolds magnificently, but Juhasz and Krishna seem confused about the film’s tone.
From Mission Impossible to The Peacemaker to A good Day To Die Hard, many Hollywood hits have their reflection in Force 2. However, the blending doesn’t work.
Force 2 has been made with good intention. It wants to get the undercover agents, who selflessly serve the nation, their due. But the story is not so favorable and it is mostly about muscles and very less about intelligence. Can be watched once.
