While the carnage of incessant blood-letting and murderous stabbing is at times draining, the film remains captivating from start to finish.

A film completely relentless both in its often grim grittiness and uncompromising artistic vision.

Birmingham Mail

This sprawling 172-minute remake of Yash Johar's widely-acclaimed 1990 original is a feast for the eyes, a slight strain on the ears and frustratingly difficult to connect with.

Audience Reviews for Agneepath

1990's blockbuster Agneepath (starring Amitabh Bachchan, Mithun, Danny, Neelam, etc.) is remade to pay a homage to it. Strike blockbuster. To the best of my knowledge, it was a mega flop. However, as Karan Johar claims, the movie did acquire a cult status, although the alleged audience seem to be more or less limited to the film industry. They're quite generous there. Likewise, our Vijay Dinanath Chauhan also happens to be a legend. Amitabh Bachchan played it loud, and here Sanjay Dutt gets to do the honors. Of playing loud, that is. His characterization of Kancha is pathetically loud. Thankfully, Hrithik is restrained as Vijay while Rishi Kapoor marvels in the role of a pimp/gangster Rauf Lala. Priyanka Chopra is okay. And so is the movie. While I can recall the box office flopping of the old film, I can't remember much about the movie itself. I saw it years ago and did catch it on TV a few months back, but didn't finish it. So I can't compare the two, and tell you which one sucks more. Go for the remake only if you have the guts to sit through nonsensical exaggerations.

God Bless Mr Mukul Anand, for he is in a restful place...cos if he was alive today he would have kiled himself...this movie just doesn't move...I am just amazed by the talent of a director to totally screw up fabulous talent and already proven story line. I face a new found respect for Mr. Amitabh Bachan, for giving us the original...cos this movie just ruins everything Agneepath was to us....
Painful and Seriously disconnected....

remakes are supposed to be dull and boring.....but this one is a completely different movie with lots of action and enertainment. Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt were terrific!!!
