AGNEEPATH Quick Movie Review: All hail, Hrithik Roshan!
Our reviewer isn’t very impressed with the first half of the Agneepath‘s remake
Ever since the first trailer of Agneepath was released, all of us have had high expectations from it. Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt and Karan Johar made a killer combination, we thought. But it seems that unlike the trailer, the film has failed to deliver. Click here to read more
AGNEEPATH Movie Review: See it for Hrithik Roshan’s heartfelt performance
Hrithik convincingly plays superman with an everyman core, but the film disappoints!
There are moments of great power in Agneepath. Debutant director Karan Malhotra, clearly a connoisseur of over-the-top Bollywood drama, piles on thunderous confrontations and punchy dialogues. So when Vijay Dinanath Chauhan gives his full introduction, which includes the name of his village Mandwa, as he knifes a hated adversary, you have no choice but to applaud. There is also some fine acting in Agneepath, notably Hrithik Roshan’s heartfelt performance as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. Stepping away from the long shadow cast by Amitabh Bachchan’s stylised take in the 1990 original, Hrithik convincingly plays superman with an everyman core. So he isn’t obviously larger-than-life. His eyes have an ache and when he breaks down and weeps, the anguish is palpable.
Rishi Kapoor as Vijay’s mentor Rauf Lala also goes bad with panache. Click here to read more
AGNEEPATH movie review: Hrithik Roshan lifts the film

There are great expectations from Agneepath for three main reasons: it is a remake of an Amitabh Bachchan flick, it’s produced by Karan Johar and has a huge starcast. But I wonder why? In any case the original Agneepath had tanked at the box office at first, only to have been recognised as a cult classic later. In a way, this one’s not just a remake. Director Karan Malhotra has taken the basic plot and played around with it. Click here to read more
