CAST & CREW
The protagonist of Ghayal, directed by Rajkumar Santhoshi, was embraced by the audience, for his heroics onscreen. And now, after 26 years, he is back with a vengeance. Watch him beating the baddies with utmost might.
Well, Sunny is still recuperating from the death of his spouse and child owing to an accident. Soha Ali Khan, who plays Sunny’s neurologist, talks highly about Sunny to other patients. She says that he is exemplary in his road to recovery. Sunny also dons the role of a courageous journalist in the movie. And not to miss ethical hacking, which is also his interest.
Well, four college youths get implicating proof of the killing of Om Puri, by the son of Naresh Jha, a prominent business tycoon, and give it to Sunny. And Sunny gets interested in the evidence since it has ex-cop Om Puri. As predictable, this footage garners the attention of Narendra Jha. And our hero Sunny plays the true hero role by coming to the rescue of the youngsters. And eventually, he gets the attention of the baddies as well as the cops.
Sunny Deol plays the angry young man, who is hell-bent on vengeance. And though his acting still sticks to the 90s, leaves quite a mark, in its distinct way. Soha Ali Khan is quite ok in her role while the charming Tisca Chopra doesn’t have much scope to perform. As for the four teenagers, though they have done what is required of them. Narendra Jha impresses us with his dialogues and has come out with a splendid performance.
Sunny Deol, is seen on the big screen after a very long sabbatical and is seen in his beloved character of Ajay Mishra. And he has seen to it that the movie has his signature in the essential departments like production, writing, and direction. The movie is different from the other sequels in the sense that it lives up to the name of a sequel; it starts off from where it left in the prequel Ghayal, which was a blockbuster in 1990.
Sunny Deol, as the director of the movie, has tried to knit some pieces of the prequel with this film. He shows the scenes of Ghayal in flashback and hence sticks to the flavor of the prequel. Some portions of the movie will make you reminiscent of Hollywood hits like Die Hard, True Lies, etc.
Deol seems to be pressurized by the changing tastes of the masses; however,he has tried his best to showcase the tense tempo of the movie, quite effectively.
What’s not there?
Don’t go with high expectations of seeing the aggressive-to-the-core Sunny Deol of the original. The hero has grown with years…..but again, a one-time watch will quite engross you…..
