FORCE – Bollywood Movie and John Abraham
by The British Asian Blog
30 September we will be seeing the release of the Bollywood Movie FORCE. Starring John Abraham (whose recent movies were Dostana, New York) and Genelia D’Souza (whose recent movie was Life Partner) is a 20th Century Fox’s contemporary action-romance movie.
What makes this movie a must watch is the performance of John Abraham, who’s last movie as the main actor was New York 2009, but later made odd appearances in movies including ‘7 Khoon Maaf’ early 2011. I believe when an actor or actress returns after a big gap in their career they have no choice but to perform 100% to make it a success. John Abraham finds himself in that position in Force.
Story Line (in a nutshell): Sanjay Singh (John Abraham) is a no-nonsense cop, who is insistent pursuit of a ruthless underworld network. His belief is firmly set in eradicating crime by simply shooting the criminals dead and not arresting them.
Physical Body: For this movie, John Abraham admitted that he underwent eight months of physical training to achieve not a six-pack but an eight-pack physique. This achievement attracted the attention of Hollywood stunt director JJ Perry (who has trained Hollywood stars such as Sylvester Stallone, etc) who is said to be “extremely impressed” by John and wants to work with him.
“Making a strong body is like a religion. When you preach a religion you go to a temple. I go to a gym and workout. I really worked out hard to make a strong body. I had put on 10 kilo muscles in eight months.” John told the media. The movie FORCE it was required that John sported a muscular look.
Controversy: Controversy broke out for the film, in a scene where John and Genelia had to tie knot. However, sources claim that the ceremony conducted was so authentic that had they completed the last round they would have actually been man and wife. The priest used for the scene was a real pandit and not a junior artist who read out the actual wedding mantra as he said he had forgot that the camera was rolling. Again, following the reports of Ritesh Deshmukh and Genelia’s marriage plans, the priest insisted that the couple couldn’t get married as Genelia is already married to John as everything was done from wearing a mangalsutra, to exchanging garlands and taking the saat pheras. He also said he wish to meet the onscreen couple and make them understand that he had pronounced the mantras one does at a real wedding.
