Plot: Films have one sure way of involving us
that never fails, they give us a character who has been wronged and
then invite us to share his frustrations as they try to talk some
sense into the blockheads. That character in Force 2 is Rudra
Pratap Singh alias Shiv Sharma (Tahir Raj Bhasin), who is out to
destroy the Indian intelligence agency RAW. Stopping him in his
endeavour are ACP Yashwardhan aka Yash (John Abraham) and an
Intelligence Officer, Kanwaljeet Kaur aka KK (Sonakshi
The narrative begins with a few RAW agents getting eliminated in
Shanghai but Anjan Das, the head of RAW, is not perturbed. It is
when Mumbai Police Inspector Yashwardhan receives a coded message
in form of a gift from his deceased friend, he realises that his
friend was betrayed by someone from within the agency.
To avenge his friend's death and to avoid other RAW agents from
getting eliminated, Yash offers his services to RAW. Anjan Das
reluctantly agrees to Yash being on the mission, but not before
assigning an able and efficient KK, as the team leader. The lead
takes the duo to Budapest to catch Tahir Bhasin and what follows is
the majority of the action sequence.
Direction: Director Abhinay Deo has done what
he is good at. He has made sure that he doesn't disappoint action
lovers out there. Without mixing too much of comedy or romantic
angle, the director has kept the film true to its genre.
Acting: John Abraham as Yashwardhan is all
beefed-up. He shines sporadically with his muscle power and he
offers his punches more convincingly than his dialogues.
Sonakshi Sinha is natural as the agile KK. With no deviation in
her character, her on-screen chemistry with Yash is winsome and
together, they make a perfect buddy duo who bond over the
Tahir Raj Bashin is the surprise package, of the film.
Understated, and ordinary in his approach, he propels the narrative
convincingly, but unfortunately, since we Indians like our
antagonist to be larger than life, he disappoints a bit and this is
not his fault.
Adil Husain as the politician, Narendra Jha as Anjan Das and
Boman Irani as Rudra Pratap Singh's father, in miniscule roles are
Other Technical Aspects: Technically, the film
is mounted with excellent production values. The lone song snuggly
fits into the narrative. The chases and the action sequences are
well-choreographed and they tend to be stretched at times.
However, the climactic sequence with visuals captured by
hand-held cameras and layered with loud background score gummed
together in snappy edits, is an eye sore.
Verdict: Overall, Force 2 offers nothing that you have not seen before, yet entertains you. It is an ideal watch for John and Sonakshi fans.
