Ghayal Once Again: Film Review – The Action Continues!

Ghayal Once Again: Film Review – The Action Continues!

By Tania Rana5 February, 2016 2 min read

Verdict: A compelling, action-packed film that recreates the exhilaration of the original.  

Ghayal (1990) swept most Filmfare awards and was the highest grosser at the Box Office for that year. Twenty-six years later, Sunny Deol has come back with a sequel. Against everyone’s advice he decided to recreate the magic- the gripping, enthralling experience that comes with every action-packed Sunny Deol film. But has he managed to live up to his fans’ expectations? 

Ghayal Once Again is Deol’s attempt to give back to the action-loving audience and he has done a fine job. The film has managed to retain the essence and flavor of the original film and blended the high-octane thrill that the audience of today craves from movies. The year is 2015, Ajay Mehra has been released and has turned his world around and given himself a purpose. Backed by ex-ACP Joe D’Souza (Om Puri) and his doctor Rhea (Soha Ali Khan), Ajay Mehra now has Satyakam, a news agency and an organisation that stands for truth and justice. It doubles up as the savior of justice and is run in a secret location. It hires people who were with Ajay in jail and ex-police officers who stood by him and against the system. Satyakam has Robin Hood-like intentions and has managed to irk corrupt politicians and has made Ajay Mehra a name synonymous with the Protector of Truth.   

All is well, but tragedy strikes and Ajay loses his friend and guide, Joe, in an accident. Joe who was an RTI activist was up against some very powerful people. The twist comes when a bunch of kids discover that the accident was actually a murder. They fight against the powers that be to deliver the evidence to Ajay and here starts Ajay’s struggle to save the kids from the clutches of Raj Bansal (Narendra Jha)- a mogul who lives in an Antilla-like home. Ajay Mehra is once again going up against a powerful adversary. 

The movie has shades of a storyline that’s been influenced greatly by the ’90s. Some scenes wouldn’t have been out of place in a Salman Khan film (think Kick!) There’s a train sequence which will make you question the plausibility of the stunts. Also, almost at the end, Ajay hijacks a helicopter! Although the climax keeps you at the edge of your seat, you may wonder how. A little over-the-top but every bit entertaining. 

This is a Sunny Deol show. But Sunny manages to justify Ajay Mehra’s screen time. His power-packed performance is backed by Om Puri, Soha Ali Khan, Narendra Jha, Sachin Khedekar, Nina Kulkarni and Tisca Chopra. Among the actors who play the four children, Rohan (Shivam Patil) and Anushka (Aanchal Munjal) give good performances. 

Ghayal Once Again manages to give the action-hungry audience exactly what they are looking for.   

Why You Should Watch This Movie:
If you’re an Ajay Mehra fan and loved Ghayal, you need to catch the sequel. Sunny’s power-packed performance and the intriguing storyline make Ghayal Once Again an entertaining watch. Go ahead, book your seats!

At the end of the first episode of season three, Siobhan (Sarah Snook) makes a snap decision in the car and tells the driver to reroute.
