Chandini Mansinghani, BeyondHeadlines
In this era of remakes one decent try is Force. Tamil movie Kaakha Kaakha by Surya Sivakumar, Jyothika and Jeevan, in the remake are replaced by John Abraham, Genelia D’Souza and debutant Vidyut Jamwal with an amazing director and producer Nishikanth Kamat and Vipul Shah.
This could be one of John’s strongest films, he plays the role of a cop ACP Yashvardhan in the narcotics department, who is strong headed and has no space for relationships but this changes when Maya (Genelia), who is very bubbly and energetic, makes her space in his life. A very common change! The story is very basic and predictable. Yashvardhan accompanied by three others in his team break the drug supplies network; Yash kills Reddy (Mukesh Rishi) a major drug supplier. In turn Anna’s younger brother Vishnu (Vidyut Jamwal) wants to take revenge, their families being his target. But still Yash decides to get married and live a normal life. But this proves to be a wrong decision. Vishnu manages to kill all families.
The music too does not live to its Tamil version, although Khwabon Khwabon by KK and Suchitra Kumar manages to create a slight impact among the audience.
There isn’t anything new in the story line, but Genelia brings some life into the movie! John manages to play his powerful role to perfection. The chemistry between John and Genelia is fresh. The debutant has also done an exceptionally good job.
