    Its a must see :thumb:

    Nothing like the old movie, but ticks all the right boxes ( for a bollywood film ).

    Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor were awesome, Hrithik was not too bad either. Piggy chops and Om Puri were wasted.

    Hrithink can't seem to be 10% of Amitabh, and Agnipath was all about his performance.

    Saw the movie... first day, first show, first row!

    Kancha while killing Vijay's dad should have killed the mom as well. Would have saved both us and himself from a lot of emotional drama!!

    The villains were terrific, both Rishi Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt. Never imagined Rishi Kapoor could be such a good villain. Sanjay Dutt was on expected lines, fabulous, especially his entry.

    Hrithik was good. He didnt try to do a 'Amitabh', which helped.

    Lots of good scenes. But some of the long drawn emotional scenes can sap all the enthusiasm.

    Advantages of sitting in the first row: Closeup of Katrina, Hrithik's bulges and also helps in quick getaway!

    Singhdoc !! well well......:cool2:

    Here's my review---


    Agneepath.....phew !! This is really the path of fire........

    For violence drips through the entire narrative , and I wasn't surprised to see a few women walk away from the theater within the first hour itself , inspite of paying 350 rupees ......

    What surprised me however , was the fact that a girl gave me tickets for free !!
    She said she had got the tickets for free herself and wasn't interested in seeing the movie.....

    For the first hour , and also the last , the movie is filled with crude and barbaric violence and also some rough language .

    You have to enter the theater with a particular mindset , that you have to see , and more particularly be unmoved by the extreme roughness of the film .

    Having made up such a mindset , you can enjoy the film , especially if you are a male.

    So whats the story ??

    Master Deenanath Chauhan ( the surname should have been Chavan , considering the fact that he is shown as ghati ) is an extremely principled teacher who tries to rouse his villagefolk against the plans of Kancha Cheema ( played by Sunjay Dutt ) to establish a cocaine producing plant in his village Mandwa . But he is framed in a rape case and hanged by Cheema , forcing his son and pregnant wife to flee to Mumbai .

    The son decides to work for a goon cum maha-pimp Rauf Lala ( played by Rishi Kapoor ) who plys the female sex slave trade , auctioning young girls in barbaric open market where the screaming writhing girls are pulled out of underground cages and dragged by their hair to be examined by lecherous buyers for their beauty and ' physical fitness ' for sex . Not surprisingly , the mother kicks the son out and does not want to meet him again . The son grows up to be---who else could it be---Vijay Deenanath Chauhan , the Hrithik Roshan wanting to be the modern day Amitabh......

    And to cut a long story short , he manages to get the better of Rauf Lala and his son and become the master of Rauf's empire ( inspite of Rauf's goons all being muslim !! Hindu muslim bhai bhai anyone.....) and then use his power to get to Mandwa to take bloodsoaked revenge against Kancha. Actually much of the blood that flows is Hrithik's , the way Kancha mauls him in Mandwa , but finally Hrithik does get to hang him in the same manner Kancha did his father .

    Oh yes ,there are also other characters along the way like commissioner Gaitonde ( On Puri ) who wants to but never could destroy the criminal rackets , and also Priyanka Chopra as Hrithik's girl.....not to forget Sallu's exgirl Katrina in the chikni chameli item song .

    But does Hrithik Roshan's mother have to deliver her second child ( a girl ) in the middle of the randbazaar by the hands of prostitutes , and does Hrithik have to grow up with and fall in love with the daughter ( Priyanka ) of a randi ?? Oh , I forgot , crudeness is supposed to be the hallmark of this film , and the director wants the situations to be as sleazy as possible .

    And only if you understand the august intentions of the director to make a film as sleazy , rough and crude as possible , will you like the film . I did . You decide for yourself.....

    Verdict---depends , really.....

    Except Rishi Kapoor in a new role nothing extrapordinary. He did better than much hyped Sanjay Dutta's role. I haven't seen the original; dont know the story. But this one has a poor story full of inconsistencies. If the Hero has go alone to the island ultimately why so much drama in Mumbai to rise in power.
