Lets move on to the movie reviews by Famous Reviewers
“Unless you don’t have anything to do this weekend, watch this action film but trust us, it is no Ghayal.”
–Rajat Tripati -Bollywoodlife
“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.Despite the 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.” Watch it
–Renuka Vyvahare– TOI
“Sunny Deol, as director, writer and actor, has a lot on his plate as he tries to negotiate through the changing times and varied tastes while keeping his loyal fan-base happy. Ajay Mehra, true to his style, is an angry man. Never one to pull his punches, he gives his full-blooded commitment to fighting for truth and justice.”
–RJ Stutee– The Quint
“Sunny Deol can still land a punch, his commitment to the part never wavers, and he directs his actors competently. But he deserves a better script…and so do we. By the time he flies into the frame on a chopper in the film’s overlong climax, you’re at the end of your patience and you really just want the film to end. Ghayal Returns isn’t unwatchable – far from it. But it’s old-fashioned and evokes a distinct sense of déjà vu. I’m going with two out of five.”
–Rajeev Masand –CNN IBN
