Bollywood Vigilante action at its best
4 July 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

If you start counting the ultimate action movies of bollywood. Ghayal would surely figure in the top three Maybe upped by Sholay and Phool Aur Kaante A young boxer's loving brother goes missing and weeks later he finds him dead. The culprit seems to be his employer. Of course the boxer then tries to take help of the law and the police but himself gets implicate in the murder After hours of police torture he is jailed for life.

He then escapes jail and swears the kill the villain in 24 hrs. thus begins an action thriller so fantastically made that Hindi cinema has never really been able to rival this rajkumar santoshi classic

Pitted against the wits of the boxer is a CID officer (om puri great as usual) who as smart and dedicated to the cause of saving the villain Vigilante action had never been so intense and smart. Recommended to good movie buffs. 8/10
