Another attempt by Bollywood hunk John Abraham to be the 'dishoom dishoom' daddy of Bollywood goes thack, twag doom in this instant noodle follow up to the 2011 actioner FORCE, that made John Abraham and his followers believe that he is the action star Bollywood is looking for.
While we are still looking for the reason behind the making of this saggy sequel that follows everything from Matt Damon's Bourne series to Neeraj Pandey's BABY starring Akshay Kumar.
FORCE 2 MOVIE WALLPAPERS
DELHI BELLY fame Abhinay Deo helms probably the weakest actioner on RAW agents making Saif Ali Khan's PHANTOM and Kabir Khan's EK THA TIGER starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif dance like 'jalebi bai's.
Parveez Shaikh and Jasmeet K Reen's script opens with China and a cliche series of chit exchange sequence quickly establishes the creative time being spent in the writing of this script that has more potholes seen in Mumbai during Monsoon.
A series of three murders of Indian RAW agents sends the Indian establishment go jittery, making an obvious platform for John to make his entry. Inspector Yashwardhan (John Abraham) is back to team with KK (Sonakshi Sinha) - what kind of name is this... anyway the rest of the film is a forcefully contrived ride to find the culprit behind the killings of the RAW agents which turns out to be Shiv Sharma (Tahir Raj Bhasin) whose explanation to the whole scenario is an example of overwhelming buffoonery that celebrates Bollywood cliches.
Nothing much engulfs, intrigues or sustains your interest in this 'forced' sequel to FORCE.
The movie makes funny statements, which I take it as unintentional admiring the writers and director's innocence where we see a Mumbai police officer quicker and smarter than a RAW agent, A RAW agent shows his photo identity freely to strangers. And finally, a tribute to Ram Gopal Varma (the irritating use of extra dimension camera seen in DEPARTMENT getting repeated over here in the final combat sequence) making you wonder why you are still sitting in the theater.
Acting wise John Abraham has the 'jism' (body) and the 'josh' (passion) to be an action hero, but ironically he losses 'hosh' (good sense) in his own productions - ROCKY HANDSOME and this one. Sonakshi Sinha is wasted completely and it is disappointing to watch her reduced to minimum after an action packed make over in AKIRA.
Tahir Raj Bhasin's villainy struggles to find the 'cool' quotient which one appreciated in MARDANI. So is there anything good. Yeah it's shot well and a couple of action scenes are worth a clap but that is all.
When you spoil a good movie by doing a bad sequel then the crime gets doubled, but FORCE 2 is in an altogether different zone, I questioned the logic behind the remake of the lousy HIMMATWALA and now I need a spy to understand what was so great about FORCE that we had a forced FORCE 2 as a sequel.
