Force 2 loudly and clearly says that it’s an action film, more to that, it’s a sequel of an action film that was released in 2011. Now according to the promos and basic storyline, it had decent expectations to offer some hard-hitting action sequences along with some patriotic storyline. Let us see how well it played well!
The movie is all about one bad guy, Rudra Pratap Singh alias Shiv Sharma (Tahir Raj Bhasin), who is out to destroy RAW – the Indian Intelligence Agency. Stopping him in his evil plans are ACP Yashwardhan aka Yash (John Abraham) along with an Intelligence Officer Kanwaljeet Kaur aka KK (Sonakshi Sinha). However, a shocking event happens before they could wipe out the evil plans of Shiv Sharma. Now what’s that shocking event and how it is being solved, forms the crux of the story.
Going by its genre and promos, the makers fulfilled their promise to give an adrenaline rush and thus doesn’t disappoint the ones who expected the same. Similarly, all the cat and mouse game, twist and turns tricks are being well plotted in the script to make the audience stick to their seat. In addition, there is a good enough pace in the film, no faltu-ka drama, and some mind-blowing action sequences that makes your mind simply blow. Also, I would like to add here that the story has surely some patriotic-wala feeling, where it shows our RAW agents in a different picture altogether.
However, what falls here is a bit of intelligence and execution part of the same. Despite of all these cat and mouse game, twist and turns tricks, good enough pace and so on, there are certain scenes and situations that’s just simply not connecting and gives you a jerk in your mind. Like for example after watching a certain scene, you will ask yourself with questions like “Really?” “Like What?” “Is It?” and so on. The first part was directed and executed by Nishikanth Kamath, but this is being helmed by Abhinay Deo. And to be honest, apart from some above-mentioned glitches, Abhinay Deo has done some excellent job here. Although the climax part is a bit cringe, but he makes sure that there is not a single dull moment in the film where you get bored and take a nap.
Going for the performances, John Abrham is surely making his mark in such type of genres, where there is only maar-dhaad and no logic – be it Dhishoom or Force 2. And I believe, he is also one perfect kind of guy, where raw dead-pan look and super action stunts make such films even better to watch. Sonakshi Sinha, on the other hand, is finally became our new action-heroine with films like Akira and Force 2. From a village-belle to this new image, I am sure Sona is going far more ahead in her career. Mardaani fame Tahir Raj Bhasin stands truly tall in front of brawny John in this film, and thus his confidence and performance will surely be likable among audience.
Cinematography is simply superb with some breathtaking locations. Also all those aerial shots and Hollywood-feel-like action scenes are the biggest attractions in the film, and for this, all the credit goes to Imre Juhasz and Mohana Krishna’s cinematography, along with stunt-director Franz Spilhaus. Editing could have been a bit crisper, especially towards the second half. Music is passable and background score holds the movie tightly.
So is it a Paisa-Vasool film? Well, it’s surely a decent watchable for all the action-movie lovers as it punches with a Force to its USP. However, there is surely a lack of intelligence here in certain parts, but if you will remove your thinking cap and will watch the film, then I am sure your paisa will be vasool and you will find the film entertaining.
