Force, 2011

So, if you’re in the mood for a good-old Bollywood masala movie with lots of maar-dhaar, and you like the looks of John Abraham and his co-star, Genelia D’Souza, well then, perhaps this one’s for you.  But, if you’re not in the mood for that, or if your patience is somewhat running thin, well, then just avoid this one, and wait for the next masalawala, and chances are you won’t have to wait long.

You’ll pardon me if you think my cynical thoughts are a bit of a dampener, but then, if only the movie focused more on the plot than Abraham’s six-pack abs (which are very viewable, no doubt), I might have been able to say something more generous.  Fact is, I am told this is a spin-off of a Tamil movie by the name of Kaakaa Kaakaa, and while it seemed to have worked in Tamil, it doesn’t do quite as well in Hindi.

Genelia has a pretty face, and certainly her smile isn’t quite as plastic as Katrina Kaif’s, but I think she has a long way to go in the ‘acting’ department.  Lesson one she could work on:  try portraying anything other than being a coquette.

Anyway, enough said.  With a stereotypical storyline, and the most disjointed way of presenting the story, I’m afraid I can’t give it more than two stars, all things considered.
