So, I finally checked off Agneepath from my to-do-list. Extremely intense and a power packed film. I only have one complain. Too long… sitting in the theatre for 3 hrs is quite a task these days. Frankly speaking, Priyanka should just retire. She doesn’t have the meat in her roles to woo the audience. We know she has the perfect figure and can give other actresses a run for their money but that attribute is long gone. I’d say Hrithik’s sister had a much more firm place in the movie. She had a reason to be there whereas Priyanka was casted only for a couple of songs and a bit of sense of humor. Fail!
Oh well, Agneepath wholly and totally belongs to Sanjay Dutt and Rishi Kapoor. It was a treat to my eyes to see such different roles and an entire makeover of these two humungous pillars of our industry. Sanjay Dutt seems to be the only actor with a gigantic body in B’town. The aam junta could see the devil in him. Kudos to Karan Malhotra! Only a superlative and creative director can think of a bald man with no eyebrows and a hefty body. It was quite daunting to see Sanjay Dutt like that. Switching gears now… I don’t even know how and where to begin with Rishi Kapoor. Breathtaking get up and one of his finest performances. If I’m not wrong, this is the first time RK performed in a negative role. It is totally ridiculous to see how this Kapoor Khandaan is reaching success after success. RK Jr. gave a magnificent performance in Rockstar and now RK Sr. dismayed the audience with ‘Rauf Lala’! Phenomenal!
…and now, as much as I try not to, I just can’t stop myself from comparing the original AGNEEPATH to this one. It’s nearly impossible to say that Hrithik did justice to ‘Vijay Dinanath Chauhan’ simply because his suave and macho look holds no match to it. The minute one recalls ‘VDC’, AB Sr. comes knocking into your brain with his heavy voice and the famous dialogue ‘pura naam…Vijay Dinanath Chauhan’.
Lastly…the pahua chadha ke aayi girl surely gave the oomph factor to the movie.
