    Force rating: 7 out of 10(Somak Basu wrote on 29 Sep 2011)

    'Wanted', 'Ready', 'Singham' & now 'Force' - it's one after one remaking of south hits. It's not that it doesn't work. Every remake on the line has collected humungous amounts & worked for a big time leaving a mark on the box-office. But why mostly action movies? that's because Bollywood had lost this genre for a long time before 'Wanted' re-invented it.

    'Force' carried much expectations after the poster which featured John in a beastly look with almost '2.5 tons' of muscles and a sculptured meaty bare body. The high-calorie action 'mardhaar' trailers & promos and also a almost good soundtrack (specially mentioning 'Khwabon Khwabon') - everything placed 'Force' in a winning point of expectations.

    Yashvardhan (John Abraham) is a hard-headed senior narcotics officer who doesn't play by the book but always ensures that justice is served. He believes that the only way to eradicate crime is to give criminals the bullet - not hand cuffs. In the midst of his most dangerous and significant operation to crack down on India's drug cartels, Yashvardhan 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. He also meets the free-spirited Maya (Genelia), whose love pushes him to make a choice between the life he already knows and the life he could have with her. Yashvardhan's decision to let happiness and normalcy into his life changes his life forever.

    We can see that 'Force' lies on a very cliched & monotonous plot with nothing such newness in it. Only strong performances & some fresh new moments can keep 'Force' out of the 'Danger' zone. Tamil hit 'KAAKHA KAAKHA' starring Suriya and Jyothika was a grand success at Tamil box-office & 'Force' is made intentionally for that. And not to forget, for a action movie you obviously need a action hero who has sculpted muscles or 6-8 packs.

    John Abraham, after nearly 7 years (DHOOM) comes back in the genre action in which he is mostly skilled. This good-looking lad was a good choice as a hero. But to maintain a good position in such a bold and violent movie which relies on the heroes dialogues and punches, John should've done much good job. The only moments when you like to praise John is when he strikes at goons. Otherwise only hard John Abraham fans would blow ceetees at John's rest of the moments. Nothing so convincing was in his role. John looked wild, aggressive but you would surely admit that some moments could have greatly handled by him. But most of all, John Abraham stands in one of the best action heroes in Bollywood. After all, until in my vision, he has the best sculpted body (along with deadly looks) in Bollywood alone. A big thumbs up to that.

    Genelia was extremely sweet. It's the same line I can tell about her in every film. She has nothing in the name of acting that she can deliver in her films. But still that pretty face, that sweet smile can win a million hearts.

    The Best performance in the movie was undoubtedly Vidyut Jammwal's, the newcomer who showed what a marvelous personality along with ability he's got. He's body with brains and oh yes! he's gonna stay at Bollywood for a long time for sure. Vidyut was the best villain that this movie could ever have.

    Others like Manish Behl, Sandhya Mridul were one of the major side-leads of the movie and they've done well. Raj Babbar got a little to do. Anitha Nair, Kamlesh Sawant, Mukesh Rishi were fine.

    Allover, the best action movie of this year till now is undoubtedly 'Force' and the best scene of the movie was the action sequence between Vidyut & John, it was unforgettable. Force stands on a very ordinary plot and thus doesn't make such a good deal for the movie. But with flaws stands the plus(s) like Action direction, Music, Vidyut & John. Nishikant Kamath after Mumbai Meri Jaan fails to make such a good action-crime thriller stand but still, Force has its own glamor. Finally, Force is not such a bad fare, especially not for the hardcore masses.
