REVIEW OF FORCE
After Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan, it is the turn of John Abraham. Yes! His latest movie Force, which has hit the screens on 30th September,2011, is remake of Tamil hit movie Kaakha Kaakha, which starred Suriya and Jyothika. The film has heavily borrowed Masala elements from movies of 1970s and 80s. It is a treat for action lovers.
The first thing that you notice in this film is John Abraham’s body. You have seen him before playing around on sun-kissed beaches and even baring a part of his butt in Dostana. But this time, John’s body is different – the muscles seem to weigh double than what you have seen him in his prior releases.In this film,John's character is that of an officer at the Narcotics Control Bureau. Force is an action-cum-love story and John Abraham’s rocking performance is the major highlight of the movie. Romance, loads of action, cheating and revenge are other plus points of the movie. But it suffers from cliched and predictable plot line. Force might forcibly make you like it in some sequences.It leaves a bloody trail throughout and has an ending unlike the typical Bollywood flick. There's Force and more force. Yes, it's very forceful.
The first half of the film engages the audiences, but the real essence of Force comes in the second half. What make the movie work are its sharp and punch dialogues and real-raw action scenes. Director Nishikant Kamat has really managed to hold the attention of the viewers with his sound technical knowledge.
Films like Force work purely for superficial reasons. A lot of it, which is generated from the leading man's explosive, nonconformist and unconquerable personality. It’s a theory as simple and silly as that. John Abraham has the physicality but not the chops to deliver what it takes. He fails to evoke any emotionality, zeal or recklessness in his ACP Yashwardhan. There comes a point when he frowns, 'Haasi nahi gussa aa raha hai.' vacant expressions don't make any sense unless you're auditioning for Robocop.
In his mission to crack down on India's drug unions, he encounters a ruthless enemy, who will stop at nothing until he gets his revenge for the damage done to his business by the narcotics team. Vidyut Jammwal suits well for the villain role opposite John and has given a good performance. John falls in love with free-spirited Maya (Genelia), who forces him to choose between his professional life and her love life. What happens is a must watch in the climax of the film.
John Abraham is a perfect choice for the male lead and he has delivered an outstanding performance. His carved body well suits the role of a young and self-confident Narcotics Officer. He rocks movie goers in action and dialogue delivery. Genelia has got lot of scope for performance in the film and she has used it to prove that she is not under-rated actress. The on-screen chemistry between John and Genelia is a treat. Force has superb production values and Allan Amin’s choreographed stunts are the major attraction of them. Secondly, Harris Jayaraj’s music is also the highlight of the movie and Nishikant has integrated the songs very well in it. Ayananka Bose’s picturisation is a visual treat. Editing, art direction, costumes and the selection of the locations are also commendable. In a nutshell, Force might be a remake movie, but it completely engages the audience with its story. It is really a treat for action lovers.
