quick review:

A racy first half gives way to mundane not-so common man vs. system.

Ghayal was the 'citizen vigilante against the system' film from way back then – 1990. I remember liking it as a 16 year old because it was different from the QSQTs and the MPKs of the time.

Ghayal Once Again seems to have the drama, histrionics and anger seething out of its teeth once again. But, this time around I, and most of the audience, have grown up. Not only in terms of the likely target audience aging, but also in terms of the milennials having seen the story umpteen number of times in the newer films with current day “star”s. Is Sunny Deol appealing to the new audience of Bollywood? Maybe, no. Is Sunny Deol appealing to the bigger audience that lies in the heart of India? Maybe, yes.

Sunny Deol claims that this isn't a remake. It is today's system vs. today's common man. I hope this means it is more than adding words like Facebook and Twitter into its language. Even so, I hope it will kero-mama it's way into our hearts even if the music itself hasn't impressed.
