In this new age of remixes and remakes, where pathetic pieces of art are being made in the name of inspiration and Tribute, “Agneepath” has come as a fresh air’s blow for the movie lovers. An Inspiration and a Tribute in its true sense, “Agneepath” is a fine composition with justified characterizations, awesome actings, novelty and good screenplay. Well it would be a little difficult to term it as a better film from Amitabh’s “Agneepath” but I would say that it would not be correct to compare the oldie and the newbie. Both the films behold their identities and successfully showcase themselves has individuals.
Although the protagonist Vijay Deenanath Chauhan, do appear a little less powerful than the anti-hero, Kancha. But if the bady is being played by someone like Sanjay Dutt, over shadowing of the hero is natural, may it be Hrithik Roshan. A well-developedplot seems to be a bit slow in the beginning but tights up its belt gradually that stay with the audience, till the end. A violently amazing screenplay does not give you the time to think about the old “Agneepath”.You do miss the dialogue delivery of Amitabh Bacchan sometimes, but as I said do not compare the old and the new one and you will enjoy the film more.
Sanjay Dutt has very convincingly played the Khalnayak. Brutality at its peak! Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra have also played their characters with complete focus and have actually lived them. Someone whose character has really attracted the people, inspite of not being in the old Agneepath is Rishi Kapoor, as Rauf lala. His character as a Mafia actually makes you to hate him (like you love him).
Music does not play a very attractive part of this Agneepath’s package but “Chikni Chameli” has definitely played a vital role in calling up the audiences at the box office. But what one can talk about, even after coming out of the theatres is the background score of the film.
The signature dialogue of the film, “naam vijay chauhan, poora naam Vijay Deenanath Chauhan…..” has been very perfectly moulded in a new situation and backdrop, but yes it has not lost its soul.
All in all “Agneepath” is a film to be remembered and watched again due to the hard work done by Karan Malhotra. Every possible detail has been taken care of in the film. I personally loved the scene when Vijay sees his burnt home, and we could see him and a burnt bulb in the frame and there are few more. But not going into explaining them all I would recommend you to go and watch the film with a free mind and not carrying the old “Agneepath” along with you because:-
Ye Mahan Drushya hain,
Chal raha Manushya hain,
Ashru, Sweth, Rakta se Latpat Latpat Latpat..
Agnipath, Agnipath, Agnipath.
