After Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan, it is the turn of John Abraham. Yes! His latest movie Force, which has hit the screens today, 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.
Force is an action-cum-love story and John Abraham"s rocking performance is the major highlight of the movie. Romance, loads of action, treachery an revenge are other plus points of the movie. But it suffers from cliched and predictable plotline. Force might forcibly make you like it in some sequences.
Despite having some dragging moments, 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.
Yashvardhan (John Abraham) is a hard-headed senior narcotics officer, who always ensures that justice is served. In his mission to crack down on India's drug cartels, 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. Meanwhile, he falls in love with free-spirited Maya (Genelia), who forces him to choose between his professional life and her love life. What happens next will form the climax of the film.
John Abraham is a perfect choice for the male lead and he has delivered an outstanding performance. His chiseled 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. Vidyut Jammwal suits well for the villain role opposite John and has given a good performance. Others like Mohnish Bahl, Sandhya Mridul, Amit Gaurr, Kamlesh Sawant, Mukesh Rishi, Raj Babbar have done justice to their respective roles.
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.
