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)

Ghayal Once Again, A blockbuster! Go on Sunny The Director
5 February 2016 | by faisalfavesSee all my reviews

Ajay Mehra (Sunny Deol) runs an investigative newspaper that seeks truth not business. Which is why four college kids strive to handover a murder footage to him, accidentally recorded by them. However, it's not as easy as it sounds since some influential people are involved.

Director Sunny Deol fairly manages to retain the essence of the Santoshi's 'Ghayal' blockbuster, while giving it a contemporary twist. While the good-old dialogues and hand-to-hand combat scenes are in place, digitization in today's world (computer hacking, phone tapping etc) has been highlighted too.

Though not as emotionally engaging as the original, the sequel delivers what it promises on the action front. Skilfully shot, elaborate nail-biting chase sequences across the city leave you glued to your seats, gasping for breath. Heavy-duty fist fights are equally gripping. Soha Ali Khan acts well and so do the teenagers.

Despite some flaws, Sunny's idealistic film exudes the sincerity and unbreakable spirit of a common man. If you mess with us, "We will find you and we will punch you." Haha You Must Watch it.
