wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
And this is how you make a remake! Weed out the unnecessary elements, fill in the blanks, and be ready for the brickbats from those for whom the original is now "cult". For those like me, who are not a part of that sect, it was a pleasure to see the 90s style of narration blend beautifully with contemporary aesthetics and sensibilities to form a pakka entertainer. So, steer clear if you don't like that kind of masala in your films. But, make sure you go for it, if intense drama mixed with song and dance entertains you. And while at it do lend a special applause to makers for resisting the urge to use exotic locales and most importantly, slapstick/lame comedy!Read more
I'd assume that someone wants to remake a film that they produced twenty years ago, because they see scope to improve it. Or at the very least, make it a different experience. So, you have Sanjay Dutt replace Danny Denzongpa - just his "look" is enough to make me believe that this is for the better. He instills disgust from the trailer itself.
Priyanka Chopra taking over Madhavi's role and Katrina Kaif doing the do instead of Archana Puran Singh are all steps in the right direction. But, but, but... Hrithik Roshan for Amitabh Bachchan...that's stretching it a bit, ain't it?
The only thing I liked about the 1990, Agneepath was Vijay Dinanath Chauhan's character. Yep! Good riddance if Shiksha (Neelam) and Krishnan Iyer MA (Mithun Chakravorty) are out, I say. As two-dimensional as Vijay was, the traumatized childhood leading to low self-esteem issues coupled with a constant need of approval - from his own mother to a child he doesn't know - was what Agneepath was about. Revenge was secondary. If anything, it was just a means which brought Vijay's end.
Other than that, there were a thousand unintentionally amusing moments. And that's why I hope that the producers are aiming to improve on it. Reducing the run-time would be one huge one for sure. The lyrics of the songs are most certainly are better than, 'I yam Krishnan Iyer Yem Ye, I yam nariyal-paani wala' and 'Ali Baba mil gaya chaalis chor se' is certainly not a testimony to Laxmikant-Pyarelal's capabilities.
For some reason, 'Chikni Chameli' which looks like the obvious replacement of 'Ali Baba', reminds me of Madhuri Dixit in Sailab and the open-and-shut case about how sexiness is oozed out of a 'koli' dance number.
That still doesn't mean I didn't like 'Chikni Chameli', I think all of Agneepath's songs have a refreshing amount of energy. And it's not energy for the sake of energy, you actually feel like tapping your feet to the melodious numbers and dancing to the faster-paced ones.
All these superficial changes aside, while watching the original Agneepath yesterday (Revision, you see!) I was hoping that the secondary line of villains had more edge to their characters in the remake. And, lo and behold, I see Rishi Kapoor and the shock when I saw him being beaten up by Hrithik Roshan (at minute 2:37 in the trailer above). How can someone so lovable deserve that? Yep, that means, I'm looking forward to Agneepath, except for the Hrithik-turns-Amitabh bit, of course.
Good to know the music has been received well -
Milliblog - "Agneepath is what one could ideally call as the Hindi debut of Marathi composing duo Ajay-Atul; outstanding debut, this!"
Music Aloud - "8.5/10"
dunkdaft - "somehow, after few repeats, I am pretty much into this Ajay-Atul composed album."
Bollyspice - "3/5"
Happy Sing - "something that can be bought on the day it gets launched."
koimoi - "3/5"

A true villain doesn't have any attachments and is pretty much soulless. Why he wants to achieve ALL, no one knows, but that's all he wants - achieve all. The lack of reason instills fear in both his enemies and the audience. Kancha (Sanjay Dutt) is that truly detached villain and Viju (Hrithik Roshan) is trying to get there. Every time he commits a murder, you see a weight of sadness in Viju's eyes, which reminds us that his parents wouldn't approve. That difference is what makes the audience root for Viju while dreading Kancha. And this polarity in emotions for the characters makes Agneepath a watch well-worth the time and money.
The only charm of 1990's Agneepath was in watching Vijay Dinanath Chauhan struggle between his father's ideology which became intrinsic to him and how he thought the world really needs to be dealt with; between seeking his mother's, thus the 'good' world's approval and knowing only one way to avenge his father's death. 22 years later, this struggle has been blunted. Yet, the charm has taken new form. His single-minded focus on seeking redemption in revenge takes you through almost t-h-r-e-e hours of watching a film. In this SMS age that, in itself, is a huge achievement.
It can be argued that a couple of songs could've been done away with, but that is exactly what Agneepath takes rightly from the 90s style of film-making. Build tension, break tension with some good-sounding music and lyrics, build tension within the said song to keep the story from stalling and let it beak with another intense/action sequence. This tempo worked very well then and from the way it's done here, can live on if used by the right hands. Sure, there is nostalgia hidden there, so I'm really interested in seeing how the generation, which hasn't grown up on that style, reacts.
Enter Hrithik Roshan. While his "star" value will rope in enough audiences from Gen-X, he's very unlikely to remind the previous generation of Amitabh Bachchan. That won't be because he hasn't done a good job, that he has, but because director, Karan Malhotra's interpretation of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan is so different. So intense is his gaze and so serious his demeanour in his first hour of screen-time that you feel relief and joy when you see him smile.
Priyanka Chopra must've known when she signed the film that all she, like her character, Kaali, is required to do is lend support. She plays the simple girl with simple needs role to perfection. The backdrop Kaali grew up in grants enough leeway to make her, cheesy, silly, smitten-in-love character, adorable. Similarly, it's good to see Kancha (Sanjay Dutt) have that slight change to his background which gives him additional motivation to be in love with that particular village. Yet, I wish his character was less dramatic. The madness he represents made him into a caricature and thus a tad bit comical. This stands out even worse because none of the other characters are really cartoon sketches.
And we know, with the underworld, drugs and body-trading as a backdrop there is enough scope for mockery. A ready and available character was that played by Rishi Kapoor, Lala. Through most of the film, you forget you are watching one star after another, but when you see Rishi Kapoor beating and being beaten up by Hrithik Roshan, a certain line is crossed and you suddenly realize the intensity of what's going on on-screen. A moment is created, even if it is not the pleasant kind.
I also liked the moments that the makers chose to keep from the original like the one with Viju and his mother having dinner or the one when Viju visits Officer Gaitonde's house. Also, some new moments were created like the one where Viju is living his sister's childhood as he would've liked to or the one which he shows intentions of getting married. I admit, these moments might make the movie sappy and a little longer than some would like, but they certainly added to the second dimension of Viju's character - that which makes him likeable despite his mean streak.
Yet, it doesn't mean there were layers to various characters that were fascinating to peel off. A couple of dimensions from each character were chosen and they were given definite shape - enough to keep you engaged.
Yet, plugging some holes from the original doesn't mean new ones aren't created. Some things came too easily to Viju and some events needed better explanation.
But, today's Agneepath was still a better version for me while retaining a lot of what I loved about the 90s. More importantly, this Agneepath loses the unnecessary comic relief and doesn't glamorize itself with the oh-so opportune exotic locations. Now the question, what about the people who either belong to that 1990-Agneepath cult or have never seen it, so they have nothing to compare it to?

Thumbs up, by Stefan S, A Nutshell Review : ...Priyanka Chopra as the love interest, teaming with Hrithik Roshan since Krrish (in films that I've watched), unfortunately had only a bit role to play here that showcased her broad acting range, being the livewire through her song and dance numbers that in fact made Katrina Kaif's much talked about item number look a little bit pale in comparison.... full review

Thumbs up, by Aniruddha Guha, DNA : ...Malhotra's Agneepath oscillates from dark (Mandwa is shot in hues of blue and grey) to colourful (Mumbai in all its splendour), overt melodrama to effective drama, and from hyperbole to, well, less hyperbole. ... full review
Thumbs up, by Deepa Deosthalee, Film Impressions : ...And yet, because of its earnestness, clever use of dramatic exposition (yes, we like declamatory speech if deployed intelligently), grand production values and superb acting all around (Hrithik Roshan, take a bow; Rishi Kapoor, you're always the best), Agneepath is enjoyable despite its length.... full review
Thumbs up, Free Press Journal : ...In fact the main plot and the innumerable sub- plots woven around it are so decadent and unrealistic that you might well think that Karan Johar was either not keen to tell the decades old tale any differently, or maybe he just wanted to double his profit margin while keeping his expense on content creation to the absolute minimum.... full review

Thumbs up, by Shubhra Gupta, indian express : ...This one is more an adaptation than a faithful remake of the 1990 original. Which is a good thing, because with the new characters and plotpoints, and minus some of the old stuff, the 2012 'Agneepath' becomes its own film, which works precisely because it’s both a tribute and a stylish re-invention of the 70’s-spilling-into-the-80s retribution formula. ... full review
Thumbs up, Mixed Bag : ...he screenplay and the editing, following the traditions of Bollywood, has reduced Kaali Gawde (Priyanka Chopra) to a beautiful piece of furniture, the only difference being that this one dances. Pity. ... full review
Thumbs up, by Piyali Dasgupta, NDTV : ...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.... full review
Thumbs up, by Mansha Rastogi, Now Running.com : ...Much against some flaws, Agneepath deserves to be lauded for performances and should be encouraged for a very convincing remake to a cult classic.... full review
Thumbs up, by Avijit Ghosh, Times of India : ...But Dutt's performance doesn't entirely help the movie's cause. On the contrary, it upsets Agneepath's symmetry. Compared to him, the more restrained and refined Hrithik, normally a competent performer, often appears pale. ... full review
Thumbs up, by Gaurav Malani, Times of India : ...Piyush Mishra's dialogues are impressive with rhetoric punches every now and then. And even when the lines go unrefined for Rishi Kapoor's crude character, it leaves immense impact without crossing the familial domain.... full review
So-So, by Anna Vetticad, annavetticadgoes2themovies : ...Agneepath 2012 is stylish, well acted, moving in many places, with engrossingly old-fashioned, well executed, chilling action scenes and a hero who makes you weep with him. ... full review
So-So, by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks Cinema.com : ...Karan Malhotra’s AGNEEPATH is not at all a remake of Mukul S. Anand’s classic in a true manner. It takes too many liberties, makes too many deletions and adds too many insertions showing the over-confidence of its makers mentioned above.... full review
So-So, by Charu A Mahesh, Buzz in Town : ...Though a few of these things don't find much relevance today including hero's mother delivering a baby on the road or a villain having a Hitler like dictatorship at a place so close to Mumbai, but its watchable since the director has also tweaked the original in many areas... full review
So-So, Daily Bhaskar : ...Stupendous performances, fresh storyline despite a remake, Chikni Chameli song and cinematography are strengths of the film. Music, editing, long duration are the weak points.... full review
So-So, by Deepa Gahlot, Film Impressions : ...Rishi Kapoor walks away with every scene he is in, but to be honest, each blow he takes is hard to bear, because you can’t believe he can be lecherous and foul. Though you applaud the performance, you secretly hope he won’t be bad again.... full review

So-So, by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live : ...However, the sometimes trite dialogues, and a few underdeveloped characters stick out like a sore thumb…take Om Puri playing upright cop Gaitonde, who pops up chiefly to deliver moral sermons to Vijay, or the frustratingly over-the-top Deven Bhojwani as Rauf Lala's mentally-challenged son... full review
So-So, by Sukanya Verma, Rediff : ...If it takes four decades for an actor to surprise us like this, so be it. As the tawdry mobster dealing in drugs and auctioning young flesh, Kapoor is uncharacteristically unkind, unapologetically filthy and, most important, so bloody convincing.... full review
So-So, by Shilpa Jamkhandikar, Reuters : ...Hrithik Roshan, Rishi Kapoor (playing Kancha’s rival and Vijay’s mentor Rauf Lala) and Sanjay Dutt (who looks creepy enough to scare most people except when he’s speaking lines in Sanskrit) are all exceptional in the film. ... full review

_MaiB_: Just watched agneepath phenomenal! Hrithiks best performance!
_FRabab: Agneepath is the best movie I've seen in the past month (after Don2 of course)
vishesh: The new Vijay does not work for me. Chintu ji is awesome as Rauf Lala.. #Agneepath
vikas_jain: Eventually watched Agneepath, ordinary direction with gaping loopholes in the script. The performance of all actors makes it worthwhile.
TheBigDowg: Agneepath is a decent movie if you haven't seen the original, else it is a disappointment. Having said that, Hrithik is bloody brilliant!
rishi_vishi: Watched agneepath yesterday. Kancha redefined.. Sanju baba rocks.. But hritik didnt match Bachchan ji but he tried, its courageous..
rahulrpatel27: Must admit, remake of cult shouldn't be made. Agneepath is one more example of that. But a good try. @duttsanjay and @iHrithik are good.
raagwasgood: +ves:Good performances by @iHrithik,Rishi & Aakash;brilliant cinematography+b/g music. -ves:shoddy editing,lengthy.#Agneepath @KJohar25
Pratzosphere: I can't make up my mind about #Agneepath too vague and loose. brilliantly shot scenes and. Some outstanding moments by hritik saved the film
nikQhil: #Agneepath Felt lengthy movie but one time watch. Performances worth it. Sanjay Dutt looks scary.
neeta1001: Agneepath! A good laugh by #SanjayDutt and a good action by @iHritik. however, movie was an Average. Fight @ end could have been more better
mrdrishtant: watched #agneepath today End n suspense kaafi amazing h but not according to my expectations :(
kushthetoker: Okay so outta 10 I'm giving 4. 3 for all those people who worked their ass of behind the cameras and 1 for Rishi Kapoor. #Agneepath
kiranpallavi: Agnipath is d good movie after rockstar. Sanjay Dutt is sOooo horrible,Hritikne sanjay duttse bahut maar khaya,priynka played too short role
killJ0y4: Nowhere close to the original but still not a bad movie. #agneepath
karan_khullar: #Agneepath no comparison wid previous one though the best movie can be Take Big B for his dialogs and ask him to perform action like Hrithik
Hellionworks: #Agneepath - Adonis vs Demonis. Hrithik, good. Priyanka, decent. Sanju baba... well, Sanju baba! Enjoyable if not compared with the original
HeadBangersInc: Agneepath has been watched.Loud and violent,but nt as bad as I thought it wud b.Dutt,Kapoor & Roshan,in tht order.Good movie.Thoughts soon.
GeetikaSood: Watched #Agneepath! #hrithik looks to die for! The writers could've made it work with lesser melodrama though
GBimalsony: Last good Bollywood movie was 'Dabaang' now 'Agneepath' people's movie. Still not good as Sir Bachchan's classic. Well done Hritik & Sanjay.
djshaiguy: Agneepath. Great build up. Shitty ending.
bharathwamp: AGNEEPATH!!!!!!! Hrithik showed his best ! ! ! worth watchable but once
anjusha17: agnipath me ritik ki jagah ajay devgan hote nto film jayada achi hoti
Ameya1986: agneepath 3/5 extremely good in parts,and slow in some.its more of an adaptation than a remake.definitely watch-able,and fresh. :)
AbhinavSahai: Agneepath just reinstated the fact that Bollywood movies are after all Bollywood. An okay watch!
100raubhG: Agneepath.I think a well directed movie..with really strong and depths in characters..though in 2nd half..it was heavy and stretched..
vasukanna: Agneepath seriously sucks! Don't even dare to step into the theater! Its a mood spoiler! #Agneepath
tweet_snake: Just watched Agneepath, it's the second indian movie I watch in the cinema and i think it's the last unless somthing like slumdog pops up ..
trehanashish: agneepath is boring
TomR1ddle: Why did I go see Agneepath? Why why why?
tantadang: #agneepath is watchable, didn't like it much. :-s
tamy_s: #agneepath sucks big time. Mandwa mein sirf ek hi vijay tha, hai aur rahega...Vijay Amitabh Dinanath Chauhan.
Sujithsays: Jeez....the new agneepath is a family drama. Trust Karan johar to make a violent classic into a tear jerker
StupiDeity: Agneepath - utter lack of characterization & plot development. Gaitonde, Suhasini, Dinanath, et al. wasted.
srikanth_iitk: Agneepath was worse than Ra.one. Its is a 3 hour snoozefest interjected by 5 min of chikni chameli <mindboggling on the big screen>
Screwdrivering: They fight in ice & call it Mission Kashmir, they fight in fire & call it Agneepath. Expect a rainy sequel now. Fools! #movies #Fun
santinoxxx: AGNEEPATH: ** / *****
RuKotecha: Agneepath wasn't dark enough! Bachchan went through some really dark shit in 1990! Saving grace: Sanjay Dutt as Kancha
rraajjeesshhnn: I rated Agneepath 1/10
rlalchandani: #Agneepath was an #EpicFail You can thank Hrithik's abs for those 4.5 stars.
Ripz_ILLDEFINED: Agneepath wot a shit remake!! U cant test amitabhs original roshan fagged the character out pure crap. And he got priyanka killed the fool!
PrincessRohaaa: Agneepath was a disappointment. So much hype just for an item number? Wtf it was such a "bakwaas" film. #bollywoodstepupyourgame
prachivsharma: I think the best part about #agneepath was the interval. Or wait, may be #chiknichamali. No, it was the interval. Yes.
patelvs88: Agneepath 2012 Review : Koninoor naam rakh dene se koi bhi heera anmol nahi ho jata. Highlight: Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor @BigbYahooGroup
par7h: Agneepath - 1st half: Wow, 2nd half: drag, End : Unreasonable.

NegiAbhishek: #RandomThoughtsOnMyMind : Ranbir's Kappors ROCKSTAR anyday over Hritikh's AGNEEPATH.

KashanAdeem: They are calling #Agneepath an action movie- while its full of violence and foul mouthed language !
Jaiswalgee: Returned from Agneepath,chicken burger,pop corn and coke combo which believe me had more of meat than the movie itself.
ILLDEFINEDMUSIC: #Agneepath they just murdered a classic! What a shit remake!
iarjun: i feel Agneepath must never have been remade! the new one was a total disaster!
iamkadar: agneepath over noisy hritik minimal dialogues max performance dutt extra ordinary performnce all other thing r waste

CyrilSebastian: #Agneepath is not that good as I heard about it .... #storyfails but #goodmusic
coolbhatt: Walked out half way from the most pathetic movie ever. Hanging ppl of tree, selling teen girls, blood & pain is Agneepath. Enjoy if u can!
chaurasiaanurag: #agneepath done; loosely directed over-hyped… #kaali was not needed at all… VDC was just fine… rishi kapoor playing rauf lala, ten on ten!!
charvi5: I just saw Agneepath....wtf was that movie...!!! Acting was gr8 but d story....ughhh wasted 3 hrs of my life...!!!
cgtweeting: #agneepath sadly a bore. Earnest performances let down by indulgent screenplay and languid editing. Only rousing score prevents drowsiness!
caesarroman: Will watch 'Senna' today. Should be better. Agneepath is another over-rated flick.
Booboo_1_: Ppl da new #Agneepath wid @iHrithik cnt touch da old one wid @SrBachchan. Not jus cuz im more fan of da old1, da new1 cnt live up it sorry
biswaranjan123: agneepath shd hv been more action packed rather than melodramatic
b_amit: Agneepath . Agneepath Series #sameguy
ansartoor: I went to see Agneepath last night. What a major disappointment. This movie is way over the top. A waste of almost 3 hours.
Ankush7264: agneepath is a boring movie, so long and unneccessary background music. Wasted my 120rs.

This page has additional observations, other than the ones noted in the main review.
Warning: this section has some details that could distort your experience while watching the movie. I strongly recommend reading this only after you have seen the movie or if you have decided not to see it.
Kancha (Sanjay Dutt) shames and murders Vijay Dinanath Chauhan's (Hrithik Roshan) dad in full public eye. Vijay wants revenge.
