Agneepath Movie Review

Other posts that you might be interested in:

Star Cast:Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Zarine Wahab and Om Puri.
Director:Karan Malhotra
Producer:Karan Johar and Hiroo Johar.
Music Directer:Ajay Gogavale and Atul Gogavale.
Genre:Drama, Action.

Story: Set initially in a village called Mandwa in India, Agneepath which eventually moves to Mumbai, is a simple story of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan (Hrithik Roshan) who wants to take the revenge of his father Dinanath Chauhan’s murder from Kancha (Sanjay Dutt). In the journey to achieve his goal, he stumbles upon Rauf Lala (Rishi Kapoor) who becomes his Godfather. Also, meanwhile, he grows up with girl in neighborhood, Kaali (Priyanka Chopra) who eventually becomes his love interest. Now, how will Vijay accomplish his task is the rest of the story!

Story Treatment: Comparisons are inevitable when a classic like Agneepath is remade. Now, the question remains, will Agneepath surpass the expectations and live up to the hype it has created so far? Well, first of all, current Agneepath isn’t the exact replica of original one in terms screenplay. The new entrants like Rauf Lala add new interesting dimensions to the story. This Hrithik-Sanjay starrer flick is a collage of some impactful moments but fitted in the most haphazard manner which makes it impact less at many moments.

Star Cast: Hrithik Roshan is confidence-personified and complements his counterpart Sanjay Dutt who seemingly looked more powerful as an actor in promos. Sanjay Dutt as Kancha was anticipated to give ‘A’ performance and he lives up to the hype. But, certainly above them is Rishi Kapoor who impresses with his flawless power-packed performance. Priyanka Chopra is brilliant in her small but pivotal role. Zarine Khan and Om Puri play their part well. 

Direction: Karan Malhotra still has a long way to go as he comes across as very na├»ve with his approach towards direction. His act loses threads at most of the times. But, one can’t take away the credit of creating some historical moments like a beautifully shot fight between Hrithik and Rishi. Also, the way Hrithik reveals his real identity as Dinanath’s son to Kancha through a messenger. And last but not the least, the climax where Vijay takes on Kancha leading to latter’s brutal death. 

Music/ Cinematography/ Dialogues/Editing: Barring Chikni Chameli where, Katrina Kaif sets the screen ablaze, none of the songs register. Cinematography gets full marks for capturing the expressions and experimenting with different camera angles. Dialogues are mediocre and crisp editing could have helped in curbing the duration of the film.

3 Ups and 3 Downs: Stupendous performances, fresh storyline despite a remake, Chikni Chameli song and cinematography are strengths of the film. Music, editing, long duration are the weak points.

On the whole, Agneepath totally rests on star power which will get the cine-goers to halls.
