Xtreme Movie Review: Agneepath Agneepath Agneepath (2012)

Agneepath… Agneepath… Agneepath…

Vruksh ho bhale khade,
ho ghane ho bade,
Ek patra chhanh bhi,
mang mat, mang mat, mang mat,
Agnipath, Agnipath, Agnipath…

Oh yes… This action-thriller will surely make you feel the word “Agneepath”. The movie, as promoted, has lived on REVENGE and lived upto the mark.
Sanjay Dutt as ‘Kancha’, Hritik Roshan as ‘Vijay Dinanath Chauhan’ and Rishi Kapoor as ‘Rauf Lala’ are well written characters & brilliantly played by each of them.
Scripts, Music, Action, and everything that makes a movie are at place; and holds it nicely.
The movie grabs you since the beginning till the end!

The emotions and the feeling of revenge are extra ordinarily sharpen, stretched to the limits in the script and greatly executed.
Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, a classic character played by the great Amitabh Bachchan has always left a great impact on the minds of viewers. And this remake, Agneepath (2012), is undisputedly effective, well directed and fully enjoyable movie.

Tu na thakega kabhi,
tu na thamega kabhi,
tu na mudega kabhi,
Kar shapath, Kar shapath, Kar shapath,
Agnipath, Agnipath, Agnipath…

“Vijay Deenanath Chauhan, poora naam, baap ka naam Deenanath Chauhan, gaon Mandwa.”

Vijay’s father, Dinanath Chauhan, was a teacher in the village Mandwa who taught him the path of fire. Kancha hangs Diananath & kicks him out of his way to become drug mafia and rule the people. Vijay leaves to Mumbai with her mother and eventually happens to know Rauf Lala after following Kancha in Mumbai. Vijay plays & uses Rauf to reach Kancha and challenges Kancha at the end & completes the REVENGE… as usual :) … During the movie Vijay is well supported by Kaali.

The movie is better watched :)

Sanjay Dutt AKA Kancha is HUGE. Sanjay has done a great job with his look, size & act… :)
The way Kancha enters holding Holy Geeta makes a great impact. Kancha recites a few funny dialogues like “To ramji Lankaa padhaar gaye hain; dekho vaanar to nahin aaye!”

Kancha Agneepath 2012-tu kya lekar aaya tha, tu kya lekar jaega

tum kya leke aaye the…
tum kya leke jaoge…
rahejayega toh sirf ek he insaan…
sarva sakti sali sarva saktimaa…
kaancha…

As they have done a great job of filming “REVENGE”, some of the scenes are so intense that “a few girls” won’t like that… :) But that was quite building the roots of the story and let you feel heat of Agneepath.

About “Chikni Chameli”, surely I’d love to see Katrina 1000 times but not a single time like in this song! For me the dance steps were pathetic and music is good but a complete copy! Ofcourse music director duo Ajay-Atul copied from their marathi hit number “Kombadi”.
All songs are good, but my favourite is “Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin” by Sonu Nigam.
BTW did you notice the statutory warnings “Smoking is injurious to health” during the song after Katrina lit the bidis!!

Yes ofcourse, Priyanka as Kaali & Om Puri as Gaaytonde are good too…
Agneepath (1990) & Agneepath (2012) both are my favourites but which Vijay do you think is better?
Thanks Karan Malhotra & Karan Johar for the great remake.

Ye mahan drushya hai,
Chal raha manushya hai,
ashru, swed, rakt se,
lathpat, lathpat, lathpat..
Agnipath, Agnipath, Agnipath…

WOW awesome movie after a long time…
