John Abraham had been missing from the film scene from quite some time now, and the actor is back with an out-and-out action flick. John says that he wants to be known as action Abraham post the film, so will his wish be fulfilled? Well, most certainly YES. Nishikant Kamat’s ‘Force’ is an action blockbuster that is certainly a treat to watch.
ACP Yashwardhan (John Abraham) heads a team of four fearless officers of the Narcotics Deparment who have sworn to burst the drug racket prevailing in the country. Yash’s strength is that he has no one of his own who can become his weakness. Then enters Maya (Genelia Dsouza) and the two fall in love. Yash is initially reluctant to commit to the relationship but lates gives in. Now, the mastermind behind the drug racket Vishnu (Vidyut Jammal) is clear that the weaknesses of these four officers is what will help him win the battle.
‘Force’ is a remake of the blockbuster Tamil film ‘Khakha Khakha’ that starred Suriya. Yes the story has been tweaked a little but the basic plot is the same. Nishkant Kamat handles it well and gives you a clean entertainer that is not over-the-top in any case. It’s real and believable unlike other Hindi action films where the lead actor is seen bashing 20 goons on his own.
John is given the best role of his career. His expression less face required this kind of a character that has mostly anger on his face and smiles just occasionally. The actor’s performance is decent enough. Genelia Dsouza is her bubbly self and looks quite captivating. Apart from looking cute in the entire film, the song sequences make her look sexy. Mohnish Behl, Sandhya Mridul are decent enough. Icing on the cake is Vidyut who plays an intelligent villain and shines.
The film was not flawless but the action and the cinematic experience doesn’t lets you look for flaws. Direction, screenplay, background score is good. The music too is soothing. Though the film did look a bit stretched in parts, it is intriguing.

Stretched in parts
