Still dealing with the haunting trauma of losing his loved ones, Ajay manages to make a credible name for himself in investigative journalism.

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)

Ghayal Ones Again unable to produce a fierce Sunny Deol
6 February 2016 | by pyaare_amanSee all my reviews

One of the most iconic revenge dramas of 1990's returns as 'GHAYAL ONES AGAIN', the film marks an action-packed comeback of Sunny Deol and audience will also get to see his 'Dhai kilo ka haath' but actions scenes arrives very late. I would just say it as an above average movie. The trademark Ghayal background score at the starting matches that of Singham Series. Sunny as a writer tried to keep it simple but the simplicity couldn't be executed during the screenplay that makes the story some what predictable. The strong dialogues and power packed punches are sadly missing from the film. The whole film is shot in Mumbai with some magnificent camera-work around Ambani mansion. The cinematography is like showing a 1990's film with modern style. There is smooth flow of story with no interruptions in the form of songs or love angle between Soha and Sunny and this goes in favour of the movie. Sunny is not as fierce as he was in Ghayal and Ghatak. Thankfully the hand to hand fights seems to be realistic there were no flying thugs and cars. Despite the flaws, Sunny as 'Ajay Mehra' exudes the sincerity and unbreakable spirit of a common man. If you are a fan of Sunny Paaji you should watch it, but watch only if you are having free time of two hours, as you might like the movie for time, you are watching the movie.
