There have been several benefits with Anil Kapoor taking up and bringing the TV Series 24 to India. One of them is in the work of Director Abhinay Deo, who has shot both Series 1 and 2.

Force 2 is based on the 2011 sequel Force where the main subject was the drugs smuggling and it launched the career of the villain Vidyut Jamwal.

Force 2 brings back John Abraham, who has also co-produced the film. John is the same cop, ACP Yashvardhan and still the hot-headed guy who wants to save the world from evil. His best friend is a Government spy and is killed and so the investigation begins and Yash has a clue to work with. He is assigned to work with the R.A.W. agent Kamaljeet Kaur and they head off to Budapest to start the hunt. The interesting plots, twists, villainous tricks by their target Shiv Sharma is quite a treat. Bollywood has really come a long way in terms of giving strength to plot, production design and of course action.

Sonakshi Sinha is Kamaljeet Kaur and she is definitely not your blonde off the block. She handles the role with ease. John is at his best in looks and acting. The villain played by Tahir Raj Bhasin, is the black sheep and he will surely have a long career in Bollywood. He has to make sure he is not stereotyped as a mean guy by taking another negative role, since his debut was in Mardaani as the child trafficker.

Force 2 is a delight in use to time and space on the screen and the best part is the fight sequence where you get a video gaming style view of the action.

He was known to be one of Hollywood’s finest actors and is missed every time there is need for casting a devious, calculative and mysterious character. Philip Seymour Hoffman will be seen in “A Most Wanted Man” with a stunning group of actors including Robin Wright Penn, Daniel Bruhl, William Dafoe and Rachel McAdams. This CIA plot film sees twists and turns and expected surprise as Director Anton Corbijn did with his last film “The American”. It will also be change for Rachel McAdams from a glamorous or girlfriend role and one that is of an operative.

 

 

She has been the Queen and kick ass assassin in Red, but now she is an obsessed Restaurant owner who gets into to competition with the new neighbours. Helen Mirren plays Madame Mallory and Manish Dayal is Hassan Haji and thus begins their competition with a love twist of Hassan’s Papa, actor Om Puri serenading Madam Mallory in the film “The Hundred Foot Journey”. The film’s soundtrack has been done by Oscar winner A R Rahman and proves to be a delightful, personal and tasty story produced by Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg.

 

 

You can almost never go wrong with dashing Denzel Washington. He comes in the film “The Equalizer” which reunites him with his “Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua. The expectations are hard action sequences, clever lines and a possible strong plot at the end of it all.
