A stylized thriller among the new wave of Indian films paying homage to the seminal Indian action genre, ‘FORCE’ combines state-of-the-art fight sequences and thrills with an original romantic narrative, delivering an abundance of on-screen energy and vigor that will have audiences gripped from the opening sequence to the end credits.
Directed by the critically acclaimed, Filmfare and National Award winning Nishikant Kamat ‘FORCE’ is a contemporary action romance and a Hindi reinterpretation of the Tamil blockbuster, ‘Kaakha Kaakha’, which achieved widespread popularity among audiences and critics alike. ‘FORCE’ is produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah who previously brought cinemagoers screen gems such as ‘Aakhen’, ‘Singh is Kinng’ and ‘Namastey London’.
At the heart of the action-love story is a renegade cop, played by John Abraham, in relentless pursuit of a ruthless, underworld gangster. He believes that the only way to eradicate crime is to give criminals the bullet – not hand cuffs. Sharing screen space with John is one of the most vivacious and exuberant talents, as Genelia D’Souza plays John’s love interest. The seat-grabbing suspense is perfectly balanced with passionate romance and a melodious soundtrack, masterfully composed by one of the leading Indian music composers, Harris Jayaraj.
Yashvardhan is a hardheaded senior narcotics officer who doesn’t play by the book but always ensures that justice is served.

He also meets the free spirited Maya, 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.
