A wound festers inside the protagonist of Agneepath. It’s a wound he’s deliberately kept smarting since childhood lest he forget the gross injustice done to his idealist father at the hands of an evil drug lord.
It’s Vijay Dinanath Chauhan versus Kancha Cheena once again this Thursday in the modern version of the 1990 cult movie Agneepath, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Danny Denzongpa as arch foes. The tall, lanky, kohl-eyed Vijay played by Amitabh has now been replaced by a younger and beefy Vijay by Hrithik Roshan. His love interest in the movie is not a nurse, but a girl who lives in a Mumbai chawl. Kaali is her name and she is played by Priyanka Chopra.
Adding a menacing streak to Kancha Cheena’s villainy in the remake is Sanjay Dutt, bald and seriously bad.
Agneepath is directed by Karan Johar’s assistant Karan Malhotra. The screenplay has been adapted from the Mukul Anand’s story by Ila Bedi Datta and Karan Malhotra.
