Unstoppable Deol!
5 February 2016 | by Chandramouli DagaSee all my reviews

Deol has been one of India's greatest action stars. In fact, his movies have been some of Bollywood's finest action movies and the list is huge. He returns to the director's chair post Dillagi, as the lead post the underrated Dishkiyaoon while Khan returns post Chaarfutiye Chhokre.

We follow Ajay Mehra as he gets entangled in another conspiracy.

After more than half a decade of delays, Deol returns in the sequel to one of his greatest films. I have to admit – the first ever trailer which released towards the end of last year, got me super-duper-truper excited for this one. And Deol delivers in each and every way – with a mind-boggling adrenaline-pumping 128 minutes of pure thrill!

Sunny Deol is in cracking form as the director. He knows his script very well and doesn't waste a single moment in pointless melodrama or overdose of sub-plots. He remains focused and tag-teams with the LEGENDary Dan Bradley – who makes his Indian Film Debut, to provide the best parts of the movie – one superb action sequence after another – due to the hyper-kinetic choreography and the technical superiority in the execution. The one song present is fun while Vipin Mishra's background score is heart-thumping as he puts the theme to great use. Ravi Yadav's cinematography is sensational – with awesome aerial views and the perfect no nonsense capture of the stunts. The special effects do look tacky, though.

Sunny Deol takes a minute or so to settle in. But once he does, the movie moves in to an unstoppable gear of awesomeness which no other actor can match – irrespective of their roaring prowess. Soha Ali Khan is wonderful. Narendra Jha is terrific and completely believable along with Tisca Chopra. Manoj Joshi is unquestionable. The supporting cast is terrific.

Ghayal Once Again is a Rs. 50 crore action-thriller where Deol reproves himself in his greatest avatar yet by extracting superior performances from the entire cast, reigniting Ajay Mehra in a clap-worthy form and delivering an unprecedented rush of spectacular stunts – ultimately culminating in the form of India's greatest action movie yet. Phew!
