Team The Force – movie review

A raunchy action-comedy film


Team The Force, movie review

Team The Force was earlier titled Jeet – Feel The Force. Director Ajay Chandok disastrously attempts to make a raunchy action-comedy film on the lines of Hollywood flicks of 1980s.

Team – The Force is about three friends Raj (Sohail), Yash (Yash Tonk) and Jassi (Vrajesh Hirjee) are three best pals who aim to strike big in the music industry but are down on luck.. This trio stay as a paying guest in a doting person’s Baabe’s (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) bungalow. This old man considers them as his own sons, so let goes collection of the rent, and even finances them and prods them to launch their own video album. Team – The Force movie review…

Baabe sponsor’s their trip to Goa so that they may start working on their video album.

But their joys are short lived as the local underworld don Raman Shetty (Sayaji Shinde) starts making extortion calls to Baabe since he wants to usurp his palatial villa.

The three strugglers take on a local don by kidnapping his sister. It’s not quite as straight forward a demand as Shetty expects it to be and everything goes hilariously haywire. A comedy of errors ensues.

How the trio of Raj, Yash and Jassi teams up and turns the tables on the underworld don and what hilarious consequences it all leads to forms the rest of the film.

All possible cinematic liberties taken, all much used and abused clichés incorporated, heroines used for mere skin show, songs tumbling out of nowhere and pathetic hamming in the name of acting is that what you spend your money to watch?

Team The Force has outdated cliches, unwanted songs, and the heroines are used for mere skin show. Rest of the story is outright predictable in this directionless flick. Thankfully, we have picturesque frames from Cinematographer Najeeb Khan and neat editing by Nitin Akshay while Daboo Malik’s musical score is average.

Sohail Khan and Yash Tonk go overboard and over act. Sadly, even the talented (amongst these three) Vrajesh Hirjee irritates (far from entertaining) with his fake Punjabi accent. Aarti Chhabria and Amrita Arora are present in this flick merely as glam dolls. However it is Sayaji Shinde who manages to evoke real moments of laughter

What upsets one here is that our film makers have not woken up to recognize the intelligence and maturity level of our audiences all over India in this satellite generation. Director Ajay Chandok who has produced Nehle Pe Dehla and even recently Ek Se Bure Do needs to understand now that even the smaller center audiences has grown up and have discarded stuff which worked in the 1980s.

Team The Force is not upto the the standards of the present generation of quality flicks produced in Bollywood, as it has only two points worth a mention – the glam dolls who appear and disappear without any link to the flow of the film and the other one, for the comic moments performed by Saayaji Shinde
