Not a powerful force

Director Nishikant Kamat says lights, camera and ‘Force’ and starts narcotics officer Yashvardhan’s (John Abraham) crackdown on drug mafia sans shirt for the first half-an-hour of the film. After surviving an early assault, ACP Yash, along with three officers from the Narcotics Control Bureau, takes on Mumbai’s notorious drug mafia.

‘Force’ is yet another story of a tough man who is afraid to fall in love.

Yash’s strength is that he has no one of his own who can become his weakness. But amid an important assignment of curbing the drug mafia, Yash has an ‘encounter’ with Maya (Genelia D’Souza), a happy-go-lucky girl who loves the ACP and wants to marry him.

Reluctant Yash gives in later and confesses his love for Maya, thereby exposing his weakness to his enemies. Enter Vishnu (Vidyut Jamwal), a drug peddler who is eager to settle scores with the ACP and his men. The new villain picks his enemies one by one before taking on Yash in the final showdown.

A remake of Tamil blockbuster ‘Kaaka Kaaka’ that starred Suriya, ‘Force’ fails to strike the right chord. The movie has been stretched for reasons best known to the director. Both hunks —John and Vidyut — have done justice to their characters. Genelia brings some ‘dance and drama’ to the otherwise action-packed movie. A treat for action lovers, rest can avoid as the force here is not that powerful.
