AGNEEPATH is an uncomplicated story of revenge, is hard-hitting yet entertaining, dwells on strong emotions and aggressive and forceful action, yet is dissimilar from the original. Debutant director Karan Malhotra sponges from the original, but bestows the new version with a fresh texture. AGNEEPATH is a fitting tribute to the masterwork. The movie has all the potential to scale dizzy heights of victory and catapult Hrithik Roshan as the newest member of the 100 cr Club, besides providing the Hindi film industry with the first giant Blockbuster of 2012. A definite winner!
It is in the end, an old-fashioned revenge drama treated in that melodramatic, over-the-top style. You’re not likely to be bored by the intense action and the solid performances, but prepare to be exhausted by just how long this film plays on.
Eventually ‘Agneepath’ turns out to be a film that starts off well, builds great momentum, has a wonderful interval point but then starts going down in the second half in a big way. So much so that by the time the moment of reckoning arrives, you have been so exhausted with at least 30-40 minutes of extended storytelling that you don’t really give out a cry of euphoria when Vijay Deenanath Chauhan eventually emerges victorious.
If you’re a loyalist of the Late Mukul Anand’s Agneepath, you’re likely to have reservations with this one. But if you leave the comparisons aside and are willing to forgive the faults, Agneepath is worth a watch essentially to savor Hrithik’s performance.
The biggest dilemma of remaking a movie is how much to retain and what to retain. If the new story takes violent shifts, you lose the audience who came to revisit the original. If you photocopy scene-by-scene, you risk failing to connect with the audience who is accustomed to present sensibilities. The only safe bet: a ‘khichdi’ of the past and the present, like this one.
The external logic of a star driven, fantasy fed film such as this may not be easy to gulp for many. The internal logic, or the reason you believe it all, depends a lot on the credibility of the headlining performance. Bachchan’s irreplaceable, of course. So is Hrithik, India’s hardest working, most intense super-star, ever.
Dutt’s performance doesn’t entirely help the movie’s cause. On the contrary, it upsets Agneepath’s symmetry. Compared to him, the more restrained and refined Hrithik, normally a competent performer, often appears pale. Try to wipe out the movie’s earlier version from your mind. You might find it more enjoyable.
The pace falters in both the first and second half despite the action. It doesn’t escape the usual Hindi film fail – it’s too long. A pointless song, a few extra flashbacks spoil a hardcore Bollywood masala flick. But here’s the thing. Watch this film because this one is unadulterated Bollywood entertainment.
The first half is heavier than the second half and also seems a bit too long. But it does have its riveting moments. There may be people who object to the late entry of Hrithik Roshan but grammatically, the childhood of Vijay had to be established very well for the revenge drama to appeal as much as it does. So the writers have done the right thing by concentrating on Vijay’s childhood portions in the first few reels. The second half may be more violent but it moves at a much faster pace. The climax is very mass-appealing and satisfying. Dialogues, penned by Piyush Mishra, are well-suited to the drama but a section of the audience will miss the high-voltage and filmi dialogues which could’ve evoked claps.
The film is a metaphor for the world we live in and Mandwa, the benighted Mandwa, which sold its soul for the money it expected to come from cocaine, is what India is today… A nation which watches helplessly as its soul is stolen.
Presenting the Exclusive First Look Official Trailer of Agneepath starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt and Rishi Kapoor. Agneepath is produced by Karan Johar for Dharma Productions and directed by Karan Malhotra.
Plotted like those kitchen-sink dramas of the 90s, ‘Patiala House’ is loud and melodramatic, and shamelessly tries to manipulate you into shedding tears.This film may work for those who miss old-fashioned melodramatic entertainers, but I was bored, Decide for yourself if it’s your cup of tea.
With lines written in Yash Chopra land–kal chup ek biwi thi, aaj bol ek maa rahi hai; and gaaliyon ka shor taaliyon main chhup jayega–and enough cricket to keep the kids happy, this is a family drama for the family.
Watch it but be prepared to be bowled over by Rishi Kapoor, not Akshay Kumar!, Patiala House is an ordinary fare which will face an uphill task at the box-office. It has taken a very dull start and that will tell on its ultimate tally at the box-office.
Patiala House is the next release of Akshay Kumar after the Mega Flop – Tees Maar Khan. Patiala House pairs Akshay opposite Anushka Sharma On screen for the very first time. Rishi Kapoor and Dimple mark their return as an On Screen Couple once again after Pyaar Mein Twist and they play Akshay’s parents. Patiala House also stars Prem Chopra, Tinu Anand and the singer Hard Kaur in important roles.
Patiala House is directed by Nikhil Advani of Kal Ho Naa Ho Fame.
Patiala House Releases Worldwide on 11 February 2011.

Do Dooni Chaar works for a number of reasons, the prime reason being its tight and interesting script which abounds in real-life situations that have been presented with utmost conviction. On the whole, DO DOONI CHAAR is a delight to watch. Just don’t miss this one!
Seminal questions, simply answered: Do Dooni Chaar should be mandatory viewing for the teaching community. The film shall make them feel good. More importantly, it demands a dekko for the delightful performances by Rishi and Neetu — and the kids — who celebrate the extraordinariness of ordinary people with gusto and verve.
The heart of “Do Dooni Chaar” lies in its characters and in the performances of the actors who inhabit them.but it’s Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh who make this an unmissable experience for the sheer chemistry they continue to share, and for the entirely believable flesh-and-blood characters they are able to create out of the Duggals. For them alone, don’t miss this film.
Do Dooni Chaar has something you don’t see often in the movies these days – Grace. There is an inherent niceness and decency in this story of a middle class family struggling to upgrade from a scooter to a car.Treading very gently, the director reminds us of what is truly important. Do Dooni Chaar is a modest film and I mean that in the best sense of the word. I recommend that you make time for it.
