That as usual airy colorful love stories of Dharma Banner have suddenly took a different turn & came up with Mr. Bachchan’s 1990′s Super Hit movie “AGNEEPATH” behind the curtains of 2012. Heartfelt applauds to our Sanju Baba (Kancha Cheena) & Hrithik Roshan (Vijay Dinanath Chauhan). Although 2012 AGNEEPATH has been a tribute or remake (whatever you say) to the 90′s film, but I believe that this time, this movie is a total Desi one when compared to the old one as the old Kancha (Danny Denzonpa) used to travel to Mauritius in the movie & the 2012′s Kancha is 100% attached to Mandwa’s soil in the entire 3hrs film.
Now, let’s dip into the storyline where the films talks about a small village called Mandwa. There stayed the principled father Dinanath Chauhan (Chetan Pandit) along with his wife (Zarina Wahab) & their son Vijay (Hrithik Roshan). Dinanath used to teach his son to fight life with perseverance & about the path of fire-Agneepath. Their happy lives got ruined with the emerge of Kancha Cheena (Sanjay Dutt) who was a drug smuggler. Vijay got completed smashed with the brutal murder of his father one devastating night in the village. His mother (Zarina Wahab) was pregnant. Both mother & son left Mandwa & came to stay in Mumbai where Vijay chose the dark way to reach Kancha & joined Rauf Lala’s (Rishi Kapoor) gang. Rauf Lala became the Godfather of Vijay & brought him up with guns & bloodsheds. And, in due course of time, Vijay became ready to take revenge from Kancha sitting in Mandwa. In Vijay’s entire journey, there was Kali (Priyanka Chopra), his beloved who stood by him in all his good & bad times. Finally, after 15years, Vijay geared up to stand head to head against Kancha Cheena & entered Mandwa for seeking vengeance.
Karan Malhotra’s Agneepath has all emotions, actions, revenge, and entertainment packed up together, so you need not think twice to enjoy the ride for 3hrs. All the characters have been given a new fresh look since it was very well known to the Directors that there will tons of comparisons with the old movie lined up. Karan’s work cannot be said as a work of a debutant director. Well done!!
The actual power in this movie lies in the hands of the director & the script writers who never loosened their grips on the flavor of the film. There is no such moment in the movie which seemed to be boring or extras to the viewers. There have been sequences between Vijay & Kancha face to face which numbed the whole audience. Such scenes are created by a fresh director is totally unbelievable.
The music of the film has been given by Ajay-Atul. Except Chikni Chameli (an item number by Katrina Kaif) which have the hit chartbuster, all other songs are melodious to listen. Even, in the item song of Chikni Chameli, Katrina looked sultry gorgeous & although it was added as a movie hype, the song was very well placed in the movie in the correct time unlike other films where all of a sudden a song pops up. Screenplay by Ila Bedi Datta and Karan Malhotra & dialogues by Piyush Mishra are a masterpiece flawless job done. Cinematography done by Kiran Deohans and Ravi K. Chandran is a class in itself.
Hrithik Roshan does justice to his role as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. His wonderful job have overflowed the theatres with applauds & praises of the audience. The best of all, Sanjay Dutt as Kancha has been excellent. The negative role has surpassed his previous negative roles in Khal Nayak & Vaastav this time. He has succeeded to create a hatred for Kancha amongst all heart & souls.
Even Rishi Kapoor has been impressive. Priyanka Chopra was perfect. Zarina Wahab also suited the role. Actually, each & every cast has been perfect & brilliant.
“Tum kya leke aye the,, kya lekar jaoge..reh jayega sirf ek sarv-shaktishaali, sarv-shaktimaan Kancha”—Sanju Baba’s rib crashing dialogue with the threatening laughter & his scary bald look stands as the U.S.P of AGNEEPATH.
It has been a magnificent job done by Dharma Productions. 1990′s AGNEEPATH & today’s AGNEEPATH cannot be compared. Being the same root, they have emerged differently & both are splendid. Heartiest salute to Mr.Amitabh Bachchan and hats off to Hrithik.
