Director: Abhinay Deo
Producers: Vipul Amrutlal Shah, John Abraham
If you love to watch action films, then Abhinay Deo’s sequel to Nishikant Kamat’s ‘Force’ (2011), is just the right choice! (provided you are okay with watching mindless action). ‘Force 2’ is all about high speed chase sequences, daredevil stunts (and of course John Abraham’s chiseled body) and has a very little scope for brain work. A large part of the film has been shot in Budapest and its scenic beauty is bound to make you fall in love with the place! (Breathtaking aerial shots will make you want to visit the Hungarian capital today!)
The story goes like this: Tough cop ACP Yashvardhan (John Abraham) travels to Budapest on a mission. He is stone-hearted and does not care for his life anymore after losing his beautiful wife (Genelia D’souza) five years ago. Yash is accompanied by his boss, RAW agent KK aka Kamaljit Kaur (Sonakshi Sinha). There is a traitor in Budapest’s Indian embassy, who reveals the identities of Indian spies to hostile forces, thus putting their lives at stake. After three RAW operatives are killed in China, Yash and KK are assigned to unearth the reason behind their deaths. There is a hint of romance between Yash and KK but it does not go too far. They are up against Shiv Sharma (Tahir Raj Bhasin) who runs an international syndicate.
The film seems to be inspired by a number of Hollywood films like ‘Mission: Impossible’ and ‘A good Day To Die Hard’. While Sonakshi Sinha’s character is a welcome change (Bollywood has finally started casting women in positions of authority over male leads) but the script fails to do justice to the role. Sonakshi delivers her best, even though the role is half-baked. The film appears to be unnecessarily stretched, and has an extremely predictable plot. (Old wine in a new bottle!) Tahir Raj Bhasin impresses us as a cold-blooded and intriguing villain (he also did an excellent job in Rani Mukerji’s 2014 film ‘Mardaani’). John Abraham is outstanding and his super toned muscles are surely to die for! (While John’s muscles have been used well in the film, we sincerely wish a little more intelligence was also used while making it!)
