Abhinay Deo’s Force 2 is an espionage-thriller that starts off with a bang. The first half is gripping with a tight narrative that revolves around Indian RAW agents in China being hunted down. John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha are assigned the mission to track an Indian embassy worker in Budapest who is leaking India’s RAW information.
While John returns to his act of the ‘sanki’ cop from the prequel, Sonakshi seems like an unsure RAW agent. Neither of them make a lasting impact, nothing like RAW agents should.
Tahir Raj Bhasin’s character is too similar to Mardaani. His tone could have been tweaked with to make him interesting.
The film’s action sequences are good enough and the locations of Budapest certainly make them even more interesting.
The plot’s predictability in the second half is a major disappointment.
Genelia’s cameo as Yash’s late wife is endearing. She looks luminous in every frame.
Overall, for the audiences who have an inherent liking for action flicks, no matter how cliched they are, this will make up for a good weekend watch.
