Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor
Agneepath may be a remake but in its own terms. There are no traces of any imitation that you normally find in remakes. The director Karan Malhotra has taken all care to see to that the essence of the original is maintained yet at the same time the novelty factor is kept intact. The story is all the same but how the movie is interpreted is what makes it stand out.
Kancha Cheena (Sanjay Dutt) is a notorious criminal in the Mandwa Island kills the village schoolmaster who is a righteous person. Now the son Vijay Dinanath Chauhan (Hrithik Roshan) guided by Rauf Lala (Rishi Kapoor) takes control of Mandwa Island thereby encountering the wrath of Kancha. Then comes revenge. How this is done forms the latter part of the movie
The director has retained the looks of the 1990’s film thereby the movie is based in that era. The dialogues by Piyush Mishra is not without punches, a reason for applauds every now and then. Cinematography by Ravi K Chandran and Kiran Deohan is on the track. The pace of the movie is kept intact with the editing of Akiv Ali.
Sanjay Dutt with his bald looks feels like a terror. Rsihi Kapoor has done his part well. Priyanka Chopra is on and off in the romantic scenes. Hrithik Roshan has done justice to his part as Vijay but there is no trace of the original.
On the whole a complete entertainer in its true sense. A Republic Day weekend treat.
