4 Very Good

Agneepath

Agneepath , One of the most awaited biggies of 2012 finally arrives. Remake of the 1990 'Agneepath' ,the makers of the new version takes only the plot but they present it in a completely different style.Agneepath has a compelling and a riveting story.but does the screenplay has done justice to the story ? the answer is a big Yes.barring some loopholes and some unexciting moments,Agneepath is surely one of the most gripping hindi movie till date.the first hour is a complete rollercoaster ride with several things going on screen and the audience just enjoying it.the second hour starts with a bang but the mid-portions get on to a slow track.however the film is revived in the pre-climax and the climax portions.
the climax is superb with the audience actually rooting for the protagonist.
dialouges are good,however more strong dialogues would have left a greater impact.action though is gory but is raw and enjoyable.background score is superb.music takes a backseat with not too much songs but the picturisation of the songs are a treat.'Chikni Chameli' is a rage.Editing coudl have been more sharp but is alright.cinematography is superb.the raw and the rustic look is excellently captured by Kiran Deohans.Direction by debutante Karan Malhotra is promising.he makes a superb debut.he executes the subject with utmost conviction.Agneepath also works because of its power-packed performances.Hrithik Roshan as the new Vijay Chauhan is simply outstanding.he registers his own style and performs effortlessly.Priyanka Chopra is a treat to watch.she provides the light moments.The real scene stealer is surely Rishi Kapoor.always being cast in sweet and sensitive roles,he proves that he can perform a negative character with flourish.his accent,his style,his expressions are brilliant.Sanjay Dutt proves his acting mettle again with Agneepath.his vicious look adds to the performance.he should surely try more negative roles.Om Puri is competent.Zarina Wahab is amazing.Rajesh Tandon Sinks Into the teeth of the role and enacts it with flourish.Sachin Khedekar is good.Deven Bhojani is superb.Chetan Pandit is alright.Arish Bhiwandiwala steals the show in the initial portions.a masterwork by the young artist.Kanika Tiwari expresses so much from her face.Katrina Mesmerizes in her item song.Overall,Agneepath is one of the finest films to come out of Hindi film industry.Gripping screenplay,Captivating performances and Brilliant Execution are the high points.Highly Recommended.
