At the recent unveiling of the Agneepath promo, the film’s producer Karan Johar made it clear that his film is not a remake but an adaptation of his father, Yash Johar’s favourite film. More appropriately, it is a tribute to his dad. In fact that was the reason Hrithik Roshan, who wants to stay away from remakes, green signaled the film. The new Agneepath’s director Karan Malhotra picked up the revenge theme and lead characters from the original, and gave his spin on the tale. In the modern version he gave Hrithik and Priyanka Chopra a much powerful and beautiful love story. Then, apart from Kancha Cheena played by Sanjay Dutt, Malhotra brought in another negative character played by Rishi Kapoor and eliminated Mithun Chakraborthy-Neelam track completely. Let’s wait and watch to see if it live up to everyone’s expectations.
