Move over Superman, Sunny Deol is here with his fist of fury . Unfortunately, it might not bring in the kind of fan club Superman enjoys

Ghayal Once Again movie review: Sunny Deol is still a lethal weapon
Indian Express
Sunny Deol is back and he's ghayal (wounded) once again! Sadly, so is the film
Only wish the climax was not so long-winded. Watch this one, even if you are not a Sunny Deol fan. The action sequences are worth your ticket money
Ghayal Once Again starts out wobbly but gains substantial momentum till interval point, only to go completely haywire in its latter half
The dramatic bits are inconsistent but even so, the film manages to impress
But obviously, she does not have the power to extend any such favours to the audience. So watch Ghayal Once Again at your own risk and only if you can withstand the relentless onslaught it unleashes.
The wounds and pain of Ajay Mehra (Sunny’s character) are still felt from ‘Ghayal’ but out here the painless wounds dries off as soon as possible leaving just a scar to remember.

‘Ghayal Once Again’ Misses the ‘Sunny Deol Punch’
The Quint
Sunny Deol cries, screams, fights, jumps off trains, runs, falls and occasionally also attempts to act. The last one is especially hard but he is unfazed.

GHAYAL ONCE AGAIN comes across as a shoddy and outdated attempt of the classic remake
Bollywood Hungama
Overall, "Ghayal Once Again" is a complex tale that is astutely handled. It will definitely appeal to Sunny Deol's fans and those who enjoy action films.

To suit the current audience, Sunny being the director added a few scenes like hacking and teenage drug scenes. But that could not help the movie from facing the bad fortune.

After watching this, the question about who is the wounded one — the viewer or the hero — may arise.
Strictly for Sunny fans or perhaps not if you want to remain one.

Sunny Deol’s action flick lacks the punch you expect!
Bollywood Life
There are just two songs which are just above ordinary and one expected SEL to come up with two excellent numbers to balance the equation
Glam Sham
While Ghayal was a path-breaking revenge story that won seven Filmfare Awards, this sequel won't manage as much traction. But if you're a Sunny Deol fanboy, this one ticks all: lung-tearing screams and crushing punches.
Mumbai Mirror
If you’re an Ajay Mehra fan and loved Ghayal, you need to catch the sequel
Despite having a decent plot, Ghayal Once Again fails in terms of execution. The screenplay drags at many parts - especially in the second half.

Sunny Deol’s Ajay Mehra hasn’t been healthy off-late (read mentally). Well, he never was. Who kills so many people in one go?

Sunny Deol has never been balanced, nuanced, subtle (lol). He only overdoes stuff. Everything. Even now. And I’m eternally grateful for it.

Ajay Mehra has mellowed down and is mature now. If you wanted to watch him thrash men with his ‘Dhaai Kilo Ka Haat ‘ and scream ‘Balwantrai ke kutton’ get set for disappointment.

'Ghayal Once Again', is very old fashioned, rough hewn and klunky

The sequel can’t dislodge memories of the original, but the action is spectacular.
