Critic Reviews for Agneepath
A superior and impressive remake of a much revered but crude 1990s Bolly cult classic.
This dynamic Hindi action extravaganza boosts its potent story with an aggressive style that will ensure audiences feel every blow.
Agneepath's success is in Karan Malhotra's conscious decision to embrace the thing that makes Bollywood masala so appealing, the spectacle.
There's both style and craft in the way [director Karan Malhotra] builds the film's opening and closing scenes.
Would this movie have the same impact on the young as did Anand's incredible Hum for the generation before? No. Would this Agneepath suffice still? Yes.
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.
