Agneepath movie review – Will is succeed like previous Agneepath

Remaking the hits and blockbusters movies of the past is now a trend in bollywood. It started with Don and then others followed the trend. Some Movies like Don, Om Shanti Om got success but some like Ramgopal Verma ki aag, Karz flopped badly.

This Friday another remake movie called Agneepath will release. Agneepath is remake of a super hit and classic movie with the same name that was released in 1990. The original movie was directed by Mukul S. Anand and produced by Yash Johar. The new movie is produces by his son Karan Johar. Let us see if the son-producer will get the same success and Dad-Producer making the same movie.

Co-incidentally the director’s name is also Karan. This the the first movie as a director for Karan Malhotra. It’d be interesting to see how Hrithik Roshan who is playing male lead in the movie will do justice with the iconic role of Vijay Deenanath Chauhan.

But one thing I am more interesting to watch is Sanjay Dutt playing the tole of Kancha Cheena. In the original movie the same role was played by Danny, a famous villain of the Indian film industry. His looks are great in the movie and the initial traliors remind me of the Sanjay Dutt I’ve seen in the bollywood hit Khalnayak. In Khalnayak Sanjay Dutt also played a negative character, which was widely appreciated. Historically it has been seen that whenever Sanjya Dutt played a negative role the movie has been a record hit, lets see if Agneepath goes by the past trend or not.

One thing I really didn’t like about the new Agneepath is that the character that was played by Mithun Chakraborty has been completely removed from the story. Interestingly Mithun won film-fare award for that role. The new Agneepath have one more negative character added to the story and its being played by Rishi Kapoor.

Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Deenanath Chauhan
