Ghayal Once Again Review – Sunny Deol

Well what happens after this is a series of twist and turns where the four kids get entangled and have to fight it out with the most powerful man of the city, will Ajay Mehra be able to save them? Watch the film to find out.
The screenplay is commonplace but entertaining in parts. Especially, the action scenes work well with the audiences. But the problem lies with the weak direction and screenplay. The initial portion of the film, where Ajay’s character is being bulid up as a fearless journalist is slow. The screenplay of the latter half is such that there is ample scope for action, which has been choreographed very well.
The latter half is fast-paced. Emotions abound the script, but at most times, they fail to touch the heart. Dialogues are good at places and poor at others. All in all, the script works because of the action.

Sunny Deol does a decent job in direction especially in action sequences. Though he fails to handle the drama and emotion quotient well due to weak screenpaly.
The film is good on the technical aspects. The team has definitely put a lot of hard work in choreographing action sequences. There are many scenes which will blow your mind.
Background music adds to the drama. Cinematography by Ravi Yadav is decent. Visual effects are praise worthy.
