Verdict : There’s only one solid reason to watch this film is Sunny Deol. So Just go and watch ___________________________________________________-
Sunny Deol's 'Ghayal Once Again', which was earlier titled 'Ghayal Returns' finally releases today after much delay. "Ghayal Once Again" Directed by Sunny deol him self and Written by Sagar Pandya and Shaktimaan Talwar, the movie continues from where its prequel ended and the movie features two characters Ajay Mehra (Sunny Deol) and ACP Joe D'Souza (Om Puri) from the original. The film has got 'UA' certificate from the Censor Board without any cut. So let’s find out, whether ‘Ghayal Once Again’ will manage to do justice to the caliber of the classic action thriller film ‘Ghayal’ or might be yet another sequel trying to encash over its past glory.
‘Ghayal Once Again’ is a story of middle aged Ajay Mehra (Sunny Deol), who after serving fourteen years of imprisonment has started his own new service wherein, they try to bring the truth in front of the world with help of other such volunteers,. One day Ajay gets an emergency call by four youngsters (Shivam Patil, Aanchal Munjal, Diana Khan & Rishabh Arora) who have a video footage stating that Ex ACP Joe D’Souza (Om Puri) was brutally killed by Kabir Bansal (Abhilash Kumar), son of a powerful businessman Raj Bansal (Narendra Jha). What happens next is what the entire film is all about.
The movie starts with establishment of the multiple characters, but, once set, goes on a roller coaster ride with good thrilling and engaging moments. One will enjoy the flashes of ‘Ghayal’ followed by Sunny-Om Puri bonding for nostalgia. The movie has two big action sequences which are outstanding – the youngsters being chased by Narendra Jha’s gaurds and Sunny trying to save the hard disc. The dramatic part involving Narendra Jha – Tisca Chopra and their family also works in the favour of the film. These scenes build up proper base for a good and hard hitting second half. Sadly, after a decent fight scene, the movie keeps sliding downwards. The drama seems over the top and loses its charm in the finale portion. The action scenes in the finale were bland and artificial. Also, the movie ends up in a jiffy leaving a bad taste for its viewers. The C.G.I work is terrible, especially in the helicopter scenes towards the climax of the film. It’s foolish to compare this movie with ‘Ghayal’ as ‘Ghayal Once Again’ is not even half of it in any terms. There are no iconic dialogues nor cinematic moments towards the finale of the film.
"Ghayal Once Again" is very high on action quotient and fight sequences. Action Director Dan Bradley has wonderfully complemented the story with mind blowing International quality stunts. Vipin Mishra's background score, Shankar Ehsaan Loy's soundtracks, Ravi Yadav's cinematography and beautiful locations are other big highlights of the movie.
It’s always good to see our desi Hulk – Sunny Deol roaring over his enemies. In ‘Ghayal Once Again’ also, he makes his impact but, later on, because of half-baked script fails to carry the film on his shoulders. Narendra Jha, Manoj Joshi, Om Puri and Ramesh Deo lend good support. Shivam Patil, Aanchal Munjal, Diana Khan, Rishabh Arora and Abhilash Kumar does decent job. Soha Ali Khan, Tisca Chopra, Nadira Babbar, Sachin Khedekar, Zakir Hussain and others are wasted.
Ghayal Once Again is a fulltime entertainer film with superb punches by Sunny Deol. If we neglect a long sequence of a chopper then the film could be rated much better than those films which have recently entered 100 cr club. So just go, watch the film and make it a success as its a very crucial film for Sunny Deol. Even Bollywood badly needs a ‘Dhai Kio KA Haath’for its successful and convincing action films.
