Force 2 had a perfect setting to make it an all out engaging and a complete thriller. The action scenes were brilliantly executed, all the car chases and gun battles had the right dose of intensity and above all, the movie demanded a rough, tough and stylish antagonist and protagonist to make the cat and mouse game highly engaging which it had. The one thing missing from the kitty was a solid script to run in tandem with the above listed positive things. Ultimately the writing is the second best villain after the antagonist in the film making the sequel to Force an average film.
Moving on to a brief outline about the plot, its a case of an investigation following a series of murders. The interesting part is that all the victims are RAW agents who were spies recruited by RAW. These murders put our Intelligence agency in a spot of bother and to find the perpetrators of the crime initiate an investigation to be jointly conducted by RAW as well as the police force. Enter daredevil ACP Yashvardhan and an incompetent RAW agent KK (Sonakshi Sinha). How they unfold the mystery surrounding the crime is what rest of the story in Force 2 deal with.
Abhinay Deo who has earlier directed movies Delhi Belly and Game has on the making side given the perfect treatment required for a thriller. There is lot of style in each and every frame. The mood and tone was well balanced as per the demands of the genre but sadly the screenplay failed to give a face-lift to boost the excitement.
There lies the problem as Force 2 though is thrilling, the writing demanded much more solidity to take the movie to the next level. The fire and spark was clearly missing in spite of many contributing factors working in favour of the movie. Well directed and stylishly executed but the laziness in script was clearly visible right throughout.
Certain things shown in the movie was way too silly for a movie that had a plot with RAW and intelligence in the background. One might wonder how come inefficient and incompetent people gets appointed as agents of our Intelligence agency. The character of KK played by Sonakshi Sinha is on whom I am pointing at.
The prequel which was a high voltage action drama directed by Nishikanth Kamath (a remake of Tamil film Kakkha Kakkha) that happened in 2011 had John Abraham and Vidyut Jamwal playing perfect foil complimenting each other as a hero and villain. Here John reprise the dutiful cop role of Yashvardhan but times have changed and the intensity in him is different this time. Though expression wise, the actor in him always comes up with wooden face, this character demanded such thing making the rough and tough role look apt on the big screen.
