Force 2 movie review: RAW action but barely enough to save the film
Tough cop ACP Yashvardhan, whom we had seen in the 2011 prequel Force is back with the sequel Force 2. The film is slightly better news for John Abraham fans who had been disappointed by his previous release of 2016, Rocky Handsome. But sadly in Force 2, it is the bad guy Tahir Raj Bhasin who proves to be the show stealer.

Tahir plays Shiv Sharma, an Indian spy gone rogue. After having lost his wife five years ago in the prequel Force, Yashvardhan is back in a more tougher and meaner version. The tough as ever John coolly throws around bad guys and flexes his muscles. However, his expressionless acting leaves a lot to be desired.

Cast: John Abraham, Sonakshi Sinha, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Narendra Jha and Adil Hussain

Director: Abhinay Deo

Genre: Action / Crime thriller

Running time: 2 hours 7 minutes

IMDb rating: 8.4/10

In his latest adventure Yash is out to avenge the death of his childhood friend, a RAW agent in China. He joins forces with another RAW agent KK (Sonakshi) for the mission. The surprising part of the film is that although Sonakshi is supposed to be the boss on the mission, it is John who has the last word in any situation and all Sonakshi does is to meekly follow his instructions.

Together KK aka Kamaljit Kaur and Yash travel to Budapest in search of Shiv (Tahir Raj Bhasin), where Yash and KK inexplicably run around in adrenalin pumping sequences that are devoid of any logic. The director miserably fails at creating a fast paced action thriller as he tries to spoon feed too much details to the audience, slowing down the film. Sonakshi just about fits into the insipid character she has been given to play. The only actor that stands out is Tahir with his smooth and easy performance.

Although Force 2 has a storyline that tells about how Indian spies put their lives at risk on under cover missions abroad, it deviates from the subject line in the later part. The movie somewhat mocks RAW as it shows a Mumbai police officer solving the crime and catching the bad guys while we had been living under the impression that RAW consists of the elite most Indian officers who are beyond comparison.

However, a unique aspect of Force 2 is that it shifts focus from Pakistan to China (a much more accomplished adversary). Shiv, the bad guy has tied up with China and is killing Indian secret agents. The job of Yash and KK is to stop the mayhem and restore order. Lacking a decent script, the movie is only meant for action junkies and has hardly anything else to offer. As far as music is concerned there is only one song in the film, a remix of "Kaate Nahi Kat Te". Watch Force 2 only if you enjoy punches, fights and fast paced action.
