Ashdoc's movie review---Force 2

John Abraham plays the brooding cop who still broods over his now dead wife , who was killed in the war against drugs in the first edition of the movie . So much so that he still has visions of her talking to him....And now he receives another shock ; his friend is among three RAW ( India's innocuously named covert operations agency , for the full form is 'research and analysis wing ' ) agents who have been killed in China .

But his friend has sent a clue to him that means that the person who revealed the names of RAW agents and caused their deaths at the hands of the Chinese is in the Indian embassy of Budapest , which is the capital city of Hungary . It is a job for RAW and not a cop like John , but 'Action Abraham' has the FORCE to break through all barriers and protocols and he is the one who is sent to Budapest with a lass---Sonakshi Sinha .

The action of course has started way before John even enters the screen , and it is breakneck and breathless . Once he enters , the fights hot up at double the speed . From putting the fear of hell among mean goons in dusty construction sites , to fighting with highly trained men firing accurate shots from sniper rifles mounted on helicopters---John does it all .

Sonakshi proves more a clownish character who cannot fire her gun at the nation's enemies at the decisive moment , but she proves mighty useful flashing her RAW agent I card to get inside restricted places....now do they carry an I card in foreign countries , these RAW agents ? Are they really THAT secret ? LoL . Sonakshi also inadvertently gets to fix a one night stand between John and a hot babe , but 'Action Abraham' is only pure action and not bang bang if you know what I mean....more like Rambo and less like James Bond is he....

And Rambo would be proud of Abraham's body---so powerfully well muscled that it can carry the entire weight of a film on his admittedly broad shoulders . And he has to carry that weight , for the villain ( Tahir Bhasin ) is an unknown and Sonakshi just doesn't fit the bill .

Tahir acts totally cocksure , taunting and sniggering at the two agents all the way . He is not bad acting wise . And the taunting and sniggering goes on all the time as the chase for catching him goes up and down buildings and alleyways . The firing of guns is outclassed only by the thumping of feet while giving chase to the elusive quarry . In all this , Sonakshi feels more like a dead weight chained to John....it's a manly world , this world of spies and secret agents . Women are not of much use here and our action Abraham is not even James Bond to use them for sex . He is a one woman man , and even the vision of his wife prodding him towards Sonakshi does not have much success .

The film does make an emotional pitch however , asking us to not forget the sacrifices that RAW agents have done for the country . Asks us to acknowledge the fact that their sacrifices are not recorded like those of soldiers because they have died on covert missions . Wants the names of RAW agents who died for the sake of the country to be declared so that their families can be proud of them in public . And says that India is changing and is not afraid to attack the enemy in his lair , as the surgical strike to take revenge for the Uri terror strike shows . This made me up the rating of the film from two to three stars , though some in the audience were sniggering at Bollywood's attempt to cash in on the surgical strikes .

Photography of the film is decent and the colours are okay . The music is not impactful and the one or two songs are forgettable . Acting is decent by everybody .

Verdict---decent .

Three stars .

International theme - Inspired by Bond or authored by Shruti/Pakau/Bagheera.

To please the male audience, who may not find an intelligent woman attractive

Homophobes should consider a little self-reflection, suggests a new study finding those individuals who are most hostile toward gays and hold strong anti-gay views may themselves have same-sex desires, albeit undercover ones.

And my God... you actually searched and found some research that homophobes are gay??

You are just too super!!!

Caught all but last 30 mins on Netflix. Good dishum dishum and chase, though at one point the goose chase gets on your nerves. But the movie keeps you engaged.

Sonakshi Sinha does appeal to my likes with a fancy for buxom women. She doesn't expose but the shirts she wears do enhance her assets.

I like her too. Looks like she is paying the price for her father's outbursts. She used to do movies with A-listers and now there are not many she is getting to do.
