Force Gets Poor Reviews

Force, the Bollywood remake of Tamil film Kaakha Kaakha, has received poor reviews from a gaggle of critics.

Are we surprised?

Of course, not.

Because, Force’s hero John Abraham can’t act.

And its heroine Genelia D’Souza can’t even spell the word acting.

Here’s what a bunch of reviewers had to say on Force:


For a genre that works purely on moronic logic and one-note screenplay, Force never had much to accomplish in the first place. But its complete lack of individuality or snap makes it a boring, banal, blah and bleak experience.

India Today:

A perfectly good action film, shot interestingly, ruined by John Abraham’s casting. If muscles could speak, he’d be a great actor. But he’s not, whether he’s going after drug goons or flirting with a vivacious Genelia D’Souza. The result: the villain played by vidyut jamwal ends up looking heroic. This one has no force.


If only John Abraham’s muscles could act, “Force” would have been a good film. As it stands though, this is at best an average cop thriller. Watch at your own peril.

    I believe Surya delivered a decent performance in that film. One of the very few in his career. Responds:

    Rumor has it that SI wrote this Kaakha Kaakha review in the pre-SI blog days.

      “Rumor has it that SI wrote this Kaakha Kaakha review in the pre-SI blog days.”

      It’s not that SI gave good reviews to Kaakha Kaakha just because he/she was mellow in the pre-Si days. But rather due to the fact that Surya was not the moronic, crowd-pleasing, ever-smiling, nonsensical actor then. Surya pre-2003 was good, perhaps, very good actor. He gave some memorable performances in Mounam Pesiyadhe, Kaakha Kaakha, Pithamagan, and Nandha. People like me were genuinely pleased to see a good actor coming up the ranks in Kollywood. Alas, good things only last for a while. As is the curse of Kollywood, Surya took the shortcut to success and started making nonsense masala movies like Aadhavan. Such is the bane of Kollywood or any other Indian film industry, Mollywood is an exception, you always compromise to reach the top.

      For other such examples of good actors becoming crowd-pleasing morons, look no further than Kamal Haasan.

    It is kinda funny to watch you praise things which you normally won’t and maintain a positive polite language in reviews (pre-SI blog). 🙂 Responds:

    Well, in the pre-SI blog days, we drank only on weekends. 😉

      Why did you edit your reply? May be, because it was hinting at your age ? 😉 Responds:

      Blame it on the Gin!

      Pleasantly high. 😉

      As Williangudi Shayshup Iyer wrote about us, Age cannot wither SI nor custom stale SI’s infinite variety.

      Now you know we’re really high!

    Hi Si,

    Watched the recent film Vedi starring Vishal.

    I hope you would pardon me for praising Vishal and appreciating the film.

    I too had some reservations about watching a Vishal film after watching Theeratha Vilayattu Pillai.

    Said some prayers to God that at least this film should be an enjoyable one. Thank God,it was!!

    Here’s my Review of the film – Vedi Review- Nice Action Entertainer
