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)

Slick and Thrilling - No Nonsense or over Drama!
8 February 2016 | by rohonnagSee all my reviews

Despite the not so great name, this is a GREAT sequel to 1990's Ghayal. I will go so far as to say that this is the BEST sequel I have seen in Bollywood till date. Ours is not a culture of sequels and it is especially difficult to make a sequel to a cult classic & Blockbuster like Ghayal.

When I heard written & directed by Sunny Deol, I was frankly quite alarmed.

I had gone into the film expecting a poorly made masala entertainer with bad acting and clichéd dialog.But This movie turned out to be hugely entertaining. It is anything but a stupidly made cash grab. I can't recommend this movie highly enough.

This is the closest an Indian film has gotten to 'The Dark Knight' type of film. This movie has powerful ruthless villains, innocents to protect, lot of hi-tech gadgetry and chases, thrills and spills more usually seen in Super Hero films from Hollywood.

This film is rather well written. Surprising, but it is. From the heroes to the villains they all make logical sense. The villain is not as strong as Balwant Rai, but he isn't so one dimensional either, this time the Villain is LITERALLY Mukesh ambani type Industrialist with a family. This film has so many layers to this Villain, he isn't a evil man, he is a business tycoon who is shady, which tycoon isn't ?

That makes this movie realistic. A REALISTIC sunny doel film?

From the writing to the action, everything Is now updated to the 2010s and its mostly very real. From the wounds incurred by the heroes while fighting, to the technique of the fights everything is plausible. There is no more super over the top falling from 10 floors and not getting hurt.

The plot has quite a few twists and turns and also has AMAZING sequences straight out of a Hollywood film with hacking, Cameras, surveillance, media corruption and a LOT more. One particular long chase sequence was actually tense enough for the entire theater to stop breathing for a while. There are more writers listed other than Sunny Deol and KUDOS to them… Brilliant job of writing an emotional action thriller. The stunts are very good too. Unlike stupid masala films the hero does fail many times, his car doesn't quite clear a jump, he trys to run away from the goons etc.

Acting wise, the film has a lot of strong performances. Surprisingly major parts of the film is Sunny Deol less and shows his confidence as a director in letting the younger cast have their screen time.

In conclusion, this is a Sequel to a VERY successful film and they managed to make it good. VERY GOOD!

Rating 7.5/10. A MUST watch for action, thriller lovers. Special bonus for Sunny Deol Lovers.
