On the whole, AGNEEPATH is a fitting tribute to the masterwork. The movie has all the potential to scale dizzy heights of victory and catapult Hrithik Roshan as the newest member of the 100 cr Club, besides providing the Hindi film industry with the first giant Blockbuster of 2012. A definite winner!

On the whole, Agneepath totally rests on star power which will lure the cine-goers to halls but how far will it impress them remains to be seen.

This is one movie which you don’t want to miss. Agneepath is sure to live up to your expectations and I must say much better made and executed than the original Amitabh Bachchan Version.

To me, that's exactly how Agneepath works, less of a remake, more of a tribute. They should have just called it Dharmapath.

Vijay isn't a middle-aged, rich gang lord with a bevy of supporters. Instead he's younger, lives in a Dongri chawl room and works for gangster Rauf Lala (Rishi Kapoor). He's a lot more vulnerable, bottling up his emotions even as his eyes well up every now and then. He's also more expressive in his relationships, and some of the film's best moments are those shared by Vijay and his 15-year-old sister.

With Bollywood being obsessed with remakes in recent times, Agneepath is an important lesson on how to pay proper tribute to the original. Despite the original being his home production, Karan Johar attempts playing with fire (treading uncharted territory) with Agneepath and emerges victorious. Agneepath has the fire for a lustrous entertainer!

Agneepath’s stellar cast and powerhouse backing will no doubt make it a big opener at the box office. However, as a film and a story it ends up being rather lackluster. The sudden shifts in emotional tone, mood as well as the loopholes make it a strictly average watch. It’s not boring but it’s also not a film you’d watch intently. Malhotra succeeds in making the film dark and raw, but then makes the situations and characters very cliched. While Roshan successfully carries his intensity throughout, the film really belongs to Dutt and Kapoor for their wicked performances. And if you don’t feel anything towards the rest of the film, don’t you worry, the deafening background score will ensure you surrender to whatever emotion it wants you to feel.
Comparisons are inevitable in a remake, especially when they involve Amitabh Bachchan.This is where Agneepath scores the first win. Comparisons are damned. This *is* the new Agneepath. Though it shares a name with the original and begins with a flashback, Bachchan’s larger-than-life- surma-rimmed Vijay Dinanath Chauhan is a page in movie history. A new one begins with this Agneepath.The movie begins in the strategically located hamlet of Mandwa and then moves to Mumbai. Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan wants to take revenge for the murder of his father by drug lord Kancha (Sanjay Dutt). On the way he meets Rauf Lala (Rishi Kapoor) who becomes his godfather in crime. He grows up with girl-next-door Kaali (Priyanka Chopra) who eventually becomes his lover.The next big win is the meshing of the past and the present. This is Karan Johar’s emotional tribute to his father, the producer of Bachchan’s Agneepath. So director Karan Malhotra retains some of the classic scenes. I won’t give them all away, but this one is so masterfully done that it must be mentioned – the killing of Vijay’s father. Kancha hangs him to death – terrifying, gripping and around me - in a packed theatre – silence. This brings me to the next big win – the action – by Abbas Ali Moghul. For context, Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai was his other recent film as action coordinator. In Agneepath, there a great mix of loud swaggering noisy action and hand-to-hand combat. Look who all watched AgneepathHere’s the last win before I move to the fails – yes there are a few. There’s quite a star cast in the film and they’ve come through. Hrithik remains grounded. He, like his lover Kaali, is the boy-next-door at heart. Circumstances change his life and surroundings, but his heart remains the same. The pain in Hrithik’s eyes when he returns to Mandwa, the climax, the grim Ganesh visarjan – oh there are just so many. Sanjay Dutt - don’t go by his recent quotes comparing his laugh to the Joker(!). Just go watch him. He probably kept Mission Kashmir in mind while shooting this. That one became a Hrithik Roshan film. This one is also a Sanjay Dutt film – easily among his best recent performances. The other stalwart is the ever-dependable Rishi Kapoor - completely despicable and thoroughly enjoyable through the film. And yes, he wears lots of surma around the eyes. So completely old-world Bollywood.Priyanka Chopra hangs in there as Kaali, but hers isn’t the role that you remember, simply because there’s not much to it.The music and background score by Ajay-Atul blend with the screenplay – it’s loud and boisterous and adds to the earthiness of the film. Yes – I am coming to Chikni Chameli. Katrina Kaif adds to the tempo, which incidentally picks up again with this song, as if on cue. Saw lots of happy faces in the audience around me. They loved it. What’s Mumbai without Ganpati Bappa – Deva shree Ganesha is fabulously picturised and sung by Ajay Gogavale. I loved Gun gun guna when I heard it, thoroughly enjoyed it in the film as well. Now for the few missteps in the film; the pace falters in both the first and second half despite the action. It doesn’t escape the usual Hindi film fail – it’s too long. A pointless song, a few extra flashbacks spoil a hardcore Bollywood masala flick. But here’s the thing. Watch this film because this one is unadulterated Bollywood entertainment. I’ll go with three stars and add half a star for the sheer excitement palpable in those who I watched the film with, first show this morning. Near packed attendance, hearty applause and complete silence in parts. What a bright start, it can only grow from here. Oh and Bollywood producers – please don’t piggyback trailers of your films on expected blockbusters. Tempting but do avoid – noticed huge impatience among those who trooped into the theatre to catch the first show of Agneepath on a holiday. The trailers were lost.

A stellar cast -- great to see Om Puri back as the fine, upstanding police officer Gaitonde -- terrific moody cinematography by the ultra talented Kiran Deohans and Ravi K Chandra, and dialogues that are not an assault on the language, Agneepath reinforces the viewers' faith in Bollywood, struggling under an avalanche of southern cartoon violent movies. Watch it, weep, wallow in the brilliantly choreographed gangster opera. After a brilliantly natural performance in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Hrithik Roshan, welcome back to form. And who is Karan Malhotra? Where has Karan Johar been hiding him?

Just after sucking the last strand of life out of the bald Kancha, VDC cried out, ‘Baba!!!’ as an ode to his father. This is funny since that also happens to be Dutt’s pet name and he plays a black sheep here too.
