Agneepath To be Remade With Hrithik Roshan


1990, Movie: Agneepath, Casting: Amitabh Bachchan.
Scene: Inside Police Station:
Inspector Gaikonde: Naam kya hai tumhaara?
VDC: Vijay Dinanath Chauhan.
Inspector Gaikonde: Baap ka naam?
VDC: Master Dinanath Chauhan. Umar 36 saal…12van ghanta chaalu hai….

This powerful dialogue is not only popular among Sachin Tendulkar or Vinod Kambli, these hard hitting words were quite a legend in itself when said by "The Legend" and were quite common on every kid’s lips since 1990 till date. Agneepath went on to become a smashing hit HALL OF FAME entertainment picture. A protagonist did Godfather, Don Vito Corleone’s role with utter brilliance. AB overshadowed all and sundry in film industry by this deadly appearance, looks, style and hoarse voice in this entertainer. AB was no less then Marlon Brando of Indian film industry. As the saying goes, “a masterpiece can be made only once and that gets termed as CLASSIC.” It happened like this with Agneepath.

It was truly a masterpiece from the trio of Tinnu Anand, Mukul Anand and Amitabh Bachchan.

Now, the rumors are, Karan Johar is planning to remake Agneepath under Dharma Productions banner with Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. Now this news excites not only me but also every man who was kid in 90's and today's generation. But with excitement there's lot of apprehension as to what the movie gonna be like and will it be as good as the original or will it prove to be another blunder like DON.

No doubt, Hrithik is a protagonist in himself, a complete package with an unmatching acting talent, but will he be able to emulate the style, the persona, the charisma, the anger which AB had in his eyes then in the newer version? Will it be another mastery perfection or will it be a clutter? Shahrukh fell on his face when he tried his hands to remake DON but the bottomline till date is, none can beat the real DON of indian cinema, the invincible Amitabh Bachchan. Later, SRK agreed for vain effort he made in re-doing the movie.

Will Hrithik Roshan be able to bring the same huskiness as AB had in Agneepath.

Has Karan Johar got at par direction talent as Mukul/Tinnu Anand? Will he be able to give a bootleg hit or will it run for covers?

Will the new Agneepath prove to be the mother of all remakes and a turning point in Hrithik's career or will it bring doomsday for Dharma productions?

Agneepath (as movie) but particularly “Vijay Dinanath Chauhan” as a name, as a character, became a brand since then. Will Hrithik Roshan be able to recreate the same magic and rebrand and continue the saga?

What will happen if Agneepath is remade with AB Junior as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan?

Dialogues from the movie had its admirer all over, today it becomes a fad, a thing of ridicule when the same dialogues will be delivered by the new age Macho Hrithik Roshan?

Who will play the role of Danny, Mithun, Madhvi, Inspector Gaikonde and Rohini for the new Agneepath.

Well, the doubts are unending, I am frantically waiting for the launch of this movie next year after Kites.

I sincerely hope that Hrithik does an archetypal performance as always and live up to the expectations of not only THE LEGEND-Agneepth and Amitabh Bachchan but also of all the crazy aficionados all over the world.

  2. Kal ho na ho from Dhrama banner was a glossy re-take on Anand, I expect even new this new one to be a glossy, modern day re-take of original Agneepath.

    I've a feeling that Hrithik is a miscast for the role of VDC, but we have to wait n watch. For the new story line he might as well suit the role! who knows..

  5. Firstly few corrections which my eye caught:
    It was truly a masterpiece from thr(should be the) trio of Tinnu Anand, Mukul Anand and Amitabh Bachchan.

    Now, the rumors are, Karan Johan(shouldnt it be Johar) is planning to remake Agneepath under Dharma Productions banner with Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. Now this news excites not only me but also every man who was kid in 90's(it must be 90s, actually it should always be 90s, 80s,..etc..until it is posessive form, like Steve's car.) and today's generation. But with excitement there's lot of apprehension as to what the movie ("is" is missing here) gonna be like and will it be as good as the original or will it prove to be another blunder like DON.

    And apologies if you feel I must not have noticed it or must have e-mailed it to you. But, you can also correct my errors. After all, we write to improve.

    The write is good, I never knew this! And, is the plan still on?

  7. I just happened to see this pic of Amitabh ji on the sidebar of your blog and had to read this post. Now that we are seeing the promos of the movie on tv I guess each one of us is going to have an opinion about the new version of Agneepath.
