Now, would you be interested to seeing a sequel of the movie which released 26 years ago? Even if you are interested, do you think this movie deserves a watch? Read on to find out!

Ghayal Once Again Movie Review Sunny Deol

Cast: Sunny Deol, Om Puri, Shivam Patil, Aanchal Munjal, Soha Ali Khan, Narendra Jha, Manoj Joshi and Tisca Chopra

Director:  Sunny Deol

Ghayal Once Again Plot:

The story of Ghayal Once Again starts off where Ghayal had ended. Ajay Mehra (Sunny Deol) after spending 14 years in jail is back to fight corruption.

The movie starts off with a climax scene from Ghayal when Sunny Deol kills Amrish Puri amidst police force and then surrenders, just to give a jist of the prequel to those viewers who would not have watched Ghayal.

The concept of this movie is nice! Murder of ex cop, Joe D'Souza (Om Puri) who had arrested him in the prequel move gets killed by a big businessman's son, Kabir Bhansal (Abhilash Kumar) in the presence of Home Minister. This murder gets captured in video by 4 kids, Rohan (Shivam Patil), Zoya (Diana Khan), Anushka (Aanchal Munjal) and Varun (Rishab Arora) who had been recording bird footages on their trip.

Rohan's father, a top lawyer surrenders the video to Raj Bhansal (Narendra Jha) whose kid committed the murder. Dejected college kids try to take matters in their own hand and give the back up copy of the video to Ajay Mehra to obtain justice.

Sadly the calls are tapped by Raj who uses all his force, money, powers and swat team type bodygaurds to stop the video from getting leaked or aired on news channel. So this forms the crux of the movie and how Ajay helps the kids, does he manage to get the video footage forms the crux of the story.

As mentioned before, the concept of the movie is good, and is not as bad as one would think it is. In a good way, this movie is not all about Sunny Deol and all the other cast members get equal importance and screen time, this makes the movie a lot bareable.

Coming to the performances, every actor has done justice to his role, be it Narendra Jha, Tisca Chopra or the small actors who essayed the role of college kids and businessman's son. The only person we find faults in, is Sunny Deol who performed like it was a 1980's movie. Had he mellowed his performance and gotten away with unnecessary running etc, this movie would have got better rating.

Camera work is good but sadly some of graphic scenes of the helicopter were really bad.

  • The movie is based on a good concept.
  • The direction of the movie was good, Sunny excelled better as a director than as an actor in this movie. Barring a few unnecessary scenes mentioned below, the direction was good.
  • Only one song, so that's a good thing!
  • An awesome twist just minutes after the interval is one of the best things in the movie. So if at all you watch then look after this one twist in the tale.


  • Major negative is Sunny Deol's acting which was explained before.
  • In spite of his car getting hit by a train and topling over, he strangely is not wounded, then again he sits in a helicopter and crashed it into a building, yet nothing happens to him, which to us seems quite stupid. Like is it humanly possible to be in an accident and not get hurt? Or are you a superman?
  • The climax scene is bad, super bad. Had the movie ended just 5 minutes before, then it would have been great, but alas they prefer to show us a Sunny Deol who gets shot with 2-3 bullets yet he feels no pain and is fighting with the villain using his world famous "Dhai Kilo Ka Haath" slap.
  • A lot of filmy scenes like he gets graced by a bullet in the head and he gets shaken only for a few seconds, he gets hit by a car yet he is back up and running in no time and oh yeah, he jumps from one running train to another like a superhero!
  • Yes, how can we forget Ajay Mehra's nervous attacks for which he keeps popping pills, the most worst scene that could ever be shot. This particular aspect should have been totally removed.
As a viewer when we see Ghayal Once Again, where there is a rich businessman staying in Antilia, who saves his spoilt son, you can't help but think of Mukesh Ambani.

A couple of years ago, there was a controversy of Mukesh Ambani's son being in a accident and injuring people and this news got burried in matter of days.

So on watching the movie, you'll notice this uncanny resemble to the characters in the movie and Ambani, its like the story was inspired by that incident and strangely Sunny Deol doesn't fear showing Antilia around 100 times in the movie.

If you have the courage to bare Sunny Deol's acting then you can surely watch for it is not as bad as one would expect it to be!
