Direction: Nishikant Kamat
Genre: Action, Romance, Humor

Movie Overview:

Force, first of all, is a remake without much creative inputs from the makers. This does not necessarily make it a dull movie; actually, those who will see this movie sans watching Khakha Khakha would love it. I have seen Khakha Khakha (Tamil original starring Surya) and Gharshana (Telugu Remake starring Venkatesh) as well. Nevertheless, frankly, I enjoyed this remake as well.

Nishikant Kamat has proved with this movie that he can manage both art cinema (previously, he directed Mumbai Meri Jaan) and commercial cinema on a perfect balance. Force, is an out and out commercial movie, yet it stands out strong on technical aspects.

John Abraham has done his role immensely well. Those who feel that John was emotionless or was underplaying his role, must understand that his character in the movie is like a hit machine. Thus, it becomes quite essential to stay calm, look cool and under act your character. Come on folks, this is not Singham or Dabbang.  Coming to John’s physique, I was amazed. John has truly the best body in B - Town.

I even concluded one more thing after seeing the movie. Genelia D’souza is the sweetest actress in the recent times. After her Telugu movie Bommarillu (it was just lovely, do watch it folks) I feel this is her second best. Okay. Accepted that she has done mainly bubbly roles in her filmography, but the roles that have been played by Genelia, I doubt if anyone could do them so well (I found Asin dull in Hindi remake of Ready).

Music, which sounds okay, looks great on screen thanks to brilliant cinematography and choreography. I am overall quite impressed with the way the movie is remade. One should also keep in mind that the original movie dated back to 2003, and so re-creating the same mood is a tough job.

The only problem that I found in all the three versions of the movie is a simple story. Unlike Ghajini or Wanted (to an extent), which belongs to the same genre – action thriller, this movie doesn’t have twists and turns to unfold the story. The movie neither has romance to the level of Ghajini or humor quotient to the level of Wanted (I do not define these movies as a benchmark, but these two are just names of the same genre).

Therefore, when you leave cinema, the two things that you remember is John’s physic and Genelia’s cute acting.  


Quick Review:

John looks cool. Genelia acts like a candyfloss. Newcomer Vidyut is remarkable. Mohnish Bahal and Sandhya Mrudul fits up the bill. Raj Babbar seems wasted.

Story And Screenplay:
The only downside of otherwise a brilliant movie. The predictable story and adapted screenplay (almost) are to be blamed at most. A major loophole of the movie. Dialogues somehow keep a layman entertained.

Editing And Cinematography:
Aryanka Bose does her job as a DOP efficiently. Cinematography is world - class. I mean it. Editing is good. No complaints here. Not to forget, the action sequences, are very well choreographed and I have probably seen for the first time, the real man to man combat in the movie. The action sequences never look unreal.Kudos.

Music And Background Score:
Check out Force Music Review here.  Music and background score are apt.

Nishikant directs the movie very well. I somehow feel absence of his creative inputs in story - screenplay section. Anyways, If the purpose of the movie is to entertain the people, then the makers have succeeded.

Final Verdict:
Raw action + blissful romance - lack of strong story and sub plots = one time entertainer.
