Been there, seen that, moved on. That's one phrase we keep using to express various things in life. We use it for cinema too. As viewers, we've moved on to far more interesting subjects. Films that we can relate to and indentify with. Films that marry realism and make-believe beautifully. Films that not only entertain, but enlighten too.

Watching a film like Team: The Force in today's jet-age is a complete put off. Vintage cars and vintage furniture are still in demand, but vintage subjects aren't. Films like Team: The Force were the order of the day, a decade or more than a decade ago. But times have changed.

Nothing works in this team, frankly!

The film tells the story of three friends (Sohail Khan, Yash Tonk and Vrajesh Hirjee), who want to make it big in the music industry. They live with a doting person (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) and his family at their bungalow as paying guests. This gentleman considers them as his own sons, even finances them and prods them to launch their own video album.

This gentleman gets an extortion call from an underworld don (Sayaji Shinde); he wants to usurp the bungalow. How the three youngsters take him to task and settle the issue forms the remainder of the film.

If the story is outright predictable, the direction is simply directionless. The director and the writer actually need a reality check. Music is of fast-forward quality.

Sohail, Yash and Vrajesh ham to the hilt. Amrita Arora makes an entry only when skin show is required. Sayaji Shinde is loud, but the interaction with his wife at several points of the film is truly funny. Kulbhushan Kharbanda looks disinterested.

Verdict: One star
