when Bollywood is unabashedly and candidly looking at its own past
for inspirations and motivation, remakes of successful Bollyood
oldies are a norm. Amidst such a scenario, it was but natural that
Karan Johar, the film-maker par excellence, chose to recreate his
late father Yash Johar's masterpiece Agneepath.
The movie, when originally released in the year 1990, had failed to
woo the audiences to the theatres. However, it acquired a cult status
in the years that followed.
the many years when he ruled the cine-screens across India, the
original superstar of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan played myriad roles
with innumerable shades, all, but few, essayed to perfection. And,
the fact that the
himself calls his role in the critically acclaimed Agneepath
as one of his 'best and most challenging' says it all.
the latest version of this highly talked about classic (that releases
with the same name), the iconic character Vijay
is being essayed by Hrithik Roshan. Whether Hrithik Roshan manages to
match (or even exceed) up to Amitabh's towering performance in the
original is yet to be seen. With movies like Lakshya,
his credit, Hrithik seems to fit the bill.
No wonder, the audiences have pinned their hopes on him and the
famous role in the original played by Danny Denzongpa, the menacing,
grotesque Kancha Cheena, is being enacted by Sanjay Dutt in the
remake. With this role, Sanjay Dutt is expected to redefine the role
of a villain in Bollywood cinema. The sizzling Priyanka Chopra
features as the leading lady in the movie. And, as has now become
almost the norm in modern cinema, an item number too has been added
in the remake for good measure, Chikni
enacted by Katrina Kaif.
Will the remake live
up to the original Agneepath? Will Hrithik adeptly handle the mammoth
task of enchanting the audiences with his performance and dialogue
delivery? Ganesha finds out with the help of Vedic astrology.
