The countdown for Hrithik Roshan's Agneepath has begun. With less than 10 days for its release, the remake of the yesteryear classic of the same name has successfully generated the hype around the film with its audio tracks and trailers that have added fuel to the expectation of the audience.
Hrithik Roshan will be seen in the role of an angry young man named Vijay Deenanath Chavan. Being the son of a schoolmaster, Vijay becomes an underworld don, who seeks revenge against Kancha Cheena played by Sanjay Dutt for plotting his father's death.
While Priyanka Chopra plays Hrithik Roshan's love interest named Kaali Gawde, the role of Krishnan Iyer MA portrayed by Mithun Chakraborty in the original has been removed from the upcoming movie. Veteran Rishi Kapoor enacts the character of drug lord Rauf Lala.
As far as the audio of Agneepath is concerned, songs like 'Chikni chameli...', 'Deva shree ganesha...', 'Shah ka rutba..., and 'Abhi mujh mein kahin...' have attracted the audience. While Laxmikant Pyarelal and Jean Michel Jarre composed tracks for the cult classic, Ajay-Atul have scored the music for the latest version of Agneepath.
It may be recalled that the original film made on Dharma Productions was a commercial flop movie but bagged several awards for the performances of the lead stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Mithun Chakraborty and Rohini Hattangadi.
