At a time when cash in a crunch, the movie business is still continuing in full force (2).

John Abraham, Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin starrer Force 2 releases this weekend, right at the heel of a previous sequel, Rock on 2. While it is too soon to explore the impact of the demonestisation move on Bollywood, let's hope the success of the first action film spills over to its sequel.

Tushar Joshi, in his review for DNA, says Force 2 is a genre pleaser and an adrenaline rush:

John Abraham's introductory scene reminds us why he's such a hit with the masses. No one comes close to the actor when it comes to having a killer physique. Abhinav Deo (director) makes the most of it with his tight close ups on Abraham's bulging biceps and shredded six packs.

However, Rohit Vats' review for Hindustan Times, states that there's no sign of any logic in the plot of Force 2:

Initially, Abhinay Deo, the director, tries to infuse some quirky elements. Even John Abraham attempts dead-pan humour. But these efforts give way to lethargic chase sequences. Budapest’s scenic beauty takes the attention further away from what’s happening on the screen. 

And Shubhra Gupta's review for Indian Express says there's no difference between Force 2 and Bond/Bourne films:

John Abraham is efficient and does what he needs to. His super toned muscles are used well to get rid of the bad guys, but not even the most impressive bod can rise above a sluggish script.

Meanwhile, Bollywood celebrities and Twitterati were also talking about John Abraham's film.
