Storyline

Ajay Mehra (from previous Ghayal-1990), after finishing off his life sentence, starts a newspaper called Satyakam. Still dealing with the haunting trauma of losing his loved ones, Ajay manages to make a credible name for himself in investigative journalism. Working with a strange team of RTI activists, ex-criminals and ilk; and even stranger ways of unearthing and presenting truth, Ajay Mehra has earned quite a fan following among the youths, who finds his fearless and unforgiving approach in dealing with all kinds of sociopaths very inspiring. Among his die hard fans are these four teenagers who happened to have received bravery medals from him once. These four friends once out on photography expedition, accidentally record a murder on a camera. The footage turns out to be explosive as it clearly shows two of the city's most powerful people involved in the murder. Well what happens after this is a series of twists and turns where the four kids get entangled and have to fight it out ... Written by Niranjan (Edited by Ruchit)

Sunny Deol's best film
5 February 2016 | by (india) – See all my reviews

Sunny's action scenes in Ghayal Once Again are as slick now by contemporary standards of on-screen action as they were by the standards of 1990s when he did the first blockbuster Ghayal." The film opens 14 years after the point where the first film ended.And yes, for a change this sequel has a sense of continuity in its plot movement.Sunny plays the same character Ajay Mehra that he played in Ghayal 26 years ago He has spent 14 years in jail, and comes out disturbed disoriented and ready to take on corruption all over again. This time his target is white-collar corruption which he and his four disciples, played by four very promising newcomers ,take on through RTIs.When all fails, the fist of fury flies like it has not aged at all There is no one who can do stunts like him now. Ghayal Once Again Proves it.What's more Sunny is not only shown to be all- powerful. There are vulnerable moments when his past from the first Ghayal film comes to haunt him. His trauma is attended to by a doctor played by Soha Ali Khan"Sunny plays both the powerful action machine and the hurt wounded human being equally well. This is his most mature and sensitive performance to date.As a director Sunny has done as good a job as Raj Kumar Santoshi had done with the first Ghayal. I am completely bowled over by the film."
