Agnipath star cast and movie review

Director: Karan Malhotra
Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor

Verdict: Better than Good(3 out of 5)

Amongst the first recall values for the original Agneepath is Amitabh Bachchan's trademark self-introduction dialogue of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. While evaluating its official remake, the first thing that crosses your mind is how the reinterpretation of this signature scene would be. Unlike in the original, the monologue plays pretty late in the remake, whereby it establishes Vijay's identity over merely introducing him and with such individuality and elegance that it pays a perfect homage to the original, while at the same time not blatantly imitating it. That is how a remake is supposed to be! Retaining the spirit of the original and having a soul of its own. This dialogue kinda summarizes the overall aura of the remake.

The basic backdrop remains the same. Kancha Cheena (Sanjay Dutt) is the uncrowned king of Mandwa Island and terminates the rebellious village schoolmaster. The master's son swears revenge and grows up to be Vijay Dinanath Chauhan (Hrithik Roshan) under the wings of Rauf Lala (Rishi Kapoor). Lala who trades in human and drug trafficking, rules the Mumbai underbelly. Vijay uses Lala to reach Kancha and thereby reclaim his island and self-esteem.

John Abraham was refused Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gam

Much before John Abraham had made his debut with Jism, Karan Johar had offered him a role in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum.

At that time John was a prominent model but he refused the role because Karan had just offered him a walk-on cameo as the guy Kareena Kapoor gets to pose as her boyfriend to make Hrithik Roshan jealous, just before the song 'You Are My Soniya'. The part was later performed by Vikas Sethi.

Later when John Abraham became an established star, he did a cameo in Karan Johar's Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna as the DJ in the song 'Where's The Party Tonight'. He also did full-fledged role in his production Kaal and will also feature in his upcoming project Dostana.
