Producer Karan Johar's latest movie Agneepath is a remake of the 1990 Hindi film of the same name. Many were keeping their finger crossed to know whether debutant director Karan Malhotra will be able to do justice to the original cult classic. He has really done a remarkable job in the new version of the film.
Agneepath is a revenge drama, which dwells on strong emotions and aggressive and forceful action. The stellar performances of Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt are the major highlight of the film. Ajay-Atul's music, Ravi K Chandran's cinematography, wonderfully choreographed fights and dance sequences, Piyush Mishra's commanding dialogues, beautiful costumes, locales and makeup work are its other attractions.
Except on big change, Karan Malhotra has remained very honest to the original movie Agneepath. Yet the film looks very fresh and entertaining. The director has dropped a character named Krishnan Iyer MA, which was played by Mithun Chakraborty in the original. Instead, he has introduced a negative role - Rauf Lala (Rishi Kapoor), who makes the narration more volatile and explosive.
