Agneepath

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)

quick review:

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!

Agneepath - Preview

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"

- meeta, a part of the audience

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, 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 Swati Rohatgi, STARDUST : ...Sanjay Dutt as the callous and ruthless baddie lives up to his look and does a brilliant job as Kancha Cheena.... 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

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 Naresh Kumar Deoshi, Apun Ka Choice : ...a firestorm that lasts too long... 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 Kshitij, Desi Martini : ...a one-time watch film that has excessive violence, great performances and an end that will surely tire you out.... 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 Nupur Barua, fullhyd.com : ...As far as sound design is concerned, everything is loud, including the visuals. The recording is not too great, and some background noises becomes deafening.... 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

So-So, by Ruchi Mehta, Roochster : ...Decently entertaining but too long!... full review

So-So, by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies : ...The original was bloody enough, and this one is several-folds that. So you have gruesome scenes of people being hung, slashed, smashed. The fight scenes are well-executed and will have action-lovers cheer. ... full review

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!

salilshankar: My review for 'Agneepath' on Rotten Tomatoes: 3 stars-It's fun, if you dont mind Low on class cinema!!!! http://tmto.es/AyATJC

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

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..

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

rajkaul: I rated Agneepath 3/10 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1849718 #IMDb a disgrace to the original #agneepath

PrincessRohaaa: Agneepath was a disappointment. So much hype just for an item number? Wtf it was such a "bakwaas" film. #bollywoodstepupyourgame

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.

Plot Summary

Kancha (Sanjay Dutt) shames and murders Vijay Dinanath Chauhan's (Hrithik Roshan) dad in full public eye. Vijay wants revenge.

What Worked

  • The way the most popular line from 1990-Agneepath is used and more importantly not over-used. "Vijay Chauhan. Poora naam Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. Gaanv Maandva"
  • Picturisation of the qawaali
  • Choreography of all songs. In fact, Chikni Chameli was the last in terms of choreography.
  • Whistles from the audience for Sanjay Dutt. How I wish he'd done a better job at acting.
  • That Master Dinanath Chauhan's suicide was converted to murder from the original Agneepath to this one. Because the fighter in him, wouldn't have committed suicide most likely.
  • Adult Vijay's character set-up. The dahi-handi pyramid scene where the entire neighbourhood is cheering for him, while the audience is cheering Hrithik Roshan.
  • The crowd cheering for Sachin Khedekar and calling out 'gotya' (his character's name from Singham! Hilarious!!
  • "The everyone is dispensable" reality of the underworld world.
  • The manner in which Viju proposes marriage.
  • The ruthlessness with which the protagonist gets beaten up!

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Priyanka Chopra's pout.
  • Kancha's philosophy. Wasn't taken any further. Had potential.
  • How can the police not have Vijay's photo?!
  • Kancha's language. Very inconsistent.
  • Why was Viju given a Bal Thackeray look?

Parental Guidance:

  • Violence: Loads and loads and a couple of brutal scenes too.
  • Language: Clean
  • Nudity & Sexual content: Prostitution, bodyselling, drugs are all shown/alluded to. One child-birth scene.
  • Concept: Revenge.
  • General Look and Feel: Crisp. Gritty.

Hi Meetu,
Your preview seems quite positive. For me the trailer gives an impression of someone wanting to make a heavily violent film and using remake of agneepath as an excuse !

ligne

@ligne I don't mind violence as long as it is not for the sake of violence. Also, the eternal filmy optimist in me is hoping for and looking forward to the changes from the original.

@Anuj I do have my reservations against Hrithik's acting capabilities but I gave Guzaarish a 'add to must watch list' rating - just pointing out. :D

@Sunil Haila! For ZNMD i remember saying, i'd be nit-picking if i complained about Hrithik Roshan because he did a good job too...BTW, Agneepath review is out. And I liked him here too! :D

About being in 0.001% people liking a film, it's cool. not everyone has to like what i like and vice versa. as long as the review helps you make a decision.

@Pradeep Ditto about VDC from the 1990 Agneepath, as in that character the only thing I liked about the film. I thought the 2012-VDC was biding his time. Waiting to make sure he could overthrow Lala successfully because he would get only one strike. Lala indeed induced more fear than the four cartoons from the 1990 film, put together. That reminds me what was that about the 1990-VDC going and getting butchered in his 'maut ke saath appinment' I first thought it was some sort of a test for the foursome, but it just doesn't make sense. Anyway...

@Anuj :P good one!

If it's made for entertainment purpose then i give it thumbs down , if it's for social injustice or moral aspects i might give it a two thumbs .Bascially if movies contains both of the ingredient it makes a good match . I didn't had any expectation as the 1990 film is my favorite but now that it's has been rated by one of the critics who seems very genuine and fair to me, i won't go to PVR maybe a dvdrip will work.

I believe any re-creation of a previous work as a tribute to it is guided by the fact that the original work is considered as a great work/classic/epic. A classic is a classic because the story being told and the way it's been told is eternal and still inspires artists and audience alike. Most of us would agree that we do not remember more than the baritone delivering "Vijay Deenanath Chauhan" and possibly the lines from HRB's poem. So in my opinion, the original film was in itself never an epic/classic 'coz if it had been, most of us would be motivated to watch it again every time it came on TV (which happened till a few years ago. Meeta I'm sure you would have made an active attempt to watch it again before comparing with the new one). And I would somehow relate to Anuj's comparison with Deewar by saying that it actually was a reflection of all the revenge stories (with mostly AB in it) that existed during the late 70s & whole of 80s but were clearly reaching their fag end in the early 90s. So, the relevance of the style of storytelling and the story itself, even for that era, is debatable. So, here you're trying to re-create, by and large, a non-epic, that too with the same style of storytelling, (I'd agree some irrelevant portions have been kept at bay), which to me doesn't lend too much to appreciate. I wonder, if the same story could be re-created keeping current sensibilities in mind and thereby taking the story and the characters to an altogether different platform where a larger audience would be able to engage with it. Paying tribute to a certain kind of storytelling technique would be attractive if it is able to generate the same magic as it originally created.

Nice review! This one surpassed my expectations - definitely worth a watch!

@Anuj agreed with all except Danny as Kancha. I didn't think he was menacing at all. That doesn't mean Sanjay Dutt did the do. It needed a more Gabbar like performance. Speaking of which, now that's a revenge saga too, Sholay. I never thought of Agneepath as watered down Deewar, so it's an interesting take. For most parts, I think of Deewar as a philosophical revenge. Vijay wasn't really seeking out Samant (is it?) to kill him. But ultimately, all revenge stories pan out the same. So, I can see where you are coming from.

@guddu ouch! Wait till it's officially out on DVD/Satellite? No?

@Mudit I don't know about paying tribute to a style of film-making, I don't think they were paying tribute. They were using that style to tell their story, and I thought they did a pretty good job of it. Similarly, I didn't think the remake was to pay a tribute, it was to showcase their interpretation of various characters.

@Vineet Really? I thought the violence is what gave the characters their identity. VDC needed to be in a position to sell Kancha's drugs in Mumbai, the only way he could do it was by taking over Lala's empire, because Lala wouldn't allow anyone else including his arch rival.

@rajsinghavi ha ha ha. 'lion without roar' says what you felt about the film to perfection!

@Pritesh Again, because there is no other way for VDC to sell Kancha's drugs in Mumbai. Lala and Commissioner Gaitonde, in their own right, didn't allow Kancha to enter Mumbai.

@Mudit Yes, of course, I did a revision by watching Agneepath 1990 again before watching this one :D I was getting curious about the 'cult' status that the 1990 film had earned even before the remake was announced, so I might have watched it anyway, but I doubt it would have been so soon. It would be a 'some day' program. :D

@Anuj By ultimately the same, I'm painting with a very broad brush of course. Going by the theory that there are only 7 original stories in the world. :D
And Kancha, I need my villains to make me scared for my hero's life. I want to convince my hero (and him to refuse of course) not to engage him and let bygones be bygones, which is what Danny didn't do.

@Anuj i think it all depends on whether the film has been done well or not, even if it's the same thing over and over again.

About External Reviews - 1. for 3/5, it depends on how the text reads. 2. If the text isn't a clear indicator, i tend to make one the lower rating and the other a greater rating.

@Anuj nope! I'm no super-woman, I skim through the reviews quickly. And go by the overall impression I get.

And about Amitabh Bachchan as VDC - point taken! :D

@Vishal that's true :P

Agneepath can be divided into 3 parts. Part 1 and 3 revolves around Hritik and his hometwon Manda and part 2 has a Mumbai flavor in it. The story is being held together by Rishi Kapoor who has worked amazingly in this film. I have never seen Rishi Kapoor doing such kind of villanious role but I must say he was superb. Hritik was nice and he has done all that he could do. Sanjay Dutt gave pure justice to his character. The role of Priyanka Chopra was a little weak but overall the movie is nice.

Disappointing film.....eventhough i am a hrithik fan.
Damn Story....bad direction....bakwaas sentiments....not an entertainer....
waste of money!!!!!!
wt happened to Hindi movies ????? !!!!!!.... y the standard of hindi movies are going down

poor film......saw agneepath with much excitement.....Disappointed, disappointed...disappointed........Directors must learn to direct well from South Director Shankar.

No good script writer left in Hindi Industry.????.....poor film...

Bakwaas movie

The strained mother-son relationship in both the films is quite similar. The only thing missing in Agneepath was the brother angle(which too was tried to some extent courtesy Mithun's character,a very unsuccessful and needless character that). Sholay too is a revenge saga but that's a completely different type. And no i don't agree that all revenge dramas end up being similar. Think about something like Ghajini for a while. There's no resemblance to the likes of Deewar/Agneepath. Revenge stories like Sholay,Deewar/Agneepath and Ghajini are chalk and cheese.
