All about 'Agneepath'


Here's all you want to know about Hrithik Roshan-Sanjay Dutt starrer 'Agneepath'

When Yash Johar’s 'Agneepath' released in the year 1990, Karan Malhotra was all of eleven. Little did he know that this would be the film that would launch his career as a director. “Agneepath is a film often described with adjectives such as cult, legend, landmark and classic. The honour to re-tell this classic is now mine and this honour was bestowed upon me by none other than Karan Johar, a man who knew that I was a filmmaker even before I did. A man who was willing to give so much to someone he barely knew. For this I will be forever indebted,” says the first-time director.

Karan adds that his ‘Agneepath’ is nothing more than a tribute to Mukul. S. Anand’s ‘Agneepath’. “And none of this would be possible without the unconditional support of my team,” he adds. Here’s all you want to know about ‘Agneepath’.

What ‘Agneepath’ is about?
The film is set in a small Indian village Mandwa, Vijay Dinanath Chauhan (Hrithik Roshan) is taught by his principled father about the path of fire - Agneepath. His life is completely shattered when the evil drug dealer Kancha (Sanjay Dutt) hangs his father to death. Vijay leaves for Bombay with his pregnant mother and has only one mission in life- to come back to Mandwa and bring back the glory of his father’s name. In Bombay, 12-yr-old Vijay is taken under the wings of the city gang lord Rauf Lala (Rishi Kapoor). From then on it is a journey of revenge where he makes and breaks many relationships only to get closer to his aim. Vijay finds support only in his best friend Kaali (Priyanka Chopra), who stands by him at every moment in his life. Fifteen years later his hatred for Kancha takes him back to Mandwa where life comes full circle.

Meet the players:

Vijay Dinanath Chauhan (Hrithik Roshan):Vijay can be defined as a man of simple needs, but one with a mind that is far from simple. He only lives for the day he can destroy Kancha. Vijay is sharp, swift and knows that he has people on his side. Vijay draws strength from his father's memories, but tends to get weak and emotional over his near and dear ones. His source of unconditional support remains his best friend, Kaali. With a heart full of vengeance, Vijay is walking the path of fire!

Kancha (Sanjay Dutt) :A man whose world is black and the only white that prevails is cocaine! He wants to be the biggest drug-dealer and conquer the markets of Mumbai. Kancha’s manpower is the entire village of Mandwa, who he manipulates and tortures. After brutally murdering the much- respected Dinanath Chauhan, Mandwa became Kancha’s concentration camp where rifles outnumber the people. This unusual man with a menacing laughter smokes his cigar and reads the Bhagavad Gita. He wants to take over Rauf Lala’s empire in Mumbai, where the police are after him, but where politicians are overtaken by fear.

Rauf Lala (Rishi Kapoor): Rauf Lala, the undisputed gang-lord of Mumbai, took years to build his empire and today has the entire city at his feet. Under the guise of a meat shop, Lala runs his business of wrongdoings. The Mumbai police have been trying to bring him to book for years, but have always failed. He has two sons- Azhar, who is deaf and mute and Mazhar, an intoxicated good-for-nothing.

Kaali (Priyanka Chopra): In his struggle to topple Kancha, Vijay finds an able ally in the form of Kaali Gavde, a woman who loves life and makes every moment worthwhile in his life. Kaali loves dressing people up and fulfills her dream of running a beauty parlour. Born to a prostitute and brought up in the brothels of Dongri, Kaali’s mother saw to it that her daughter was kept away from a life of disrepute. Since the age of eleven, Kaali’s life has always revolved around Vijay. They share a very unusual, but strong bond. Kaali knows the baggage Vijay comes with, but loves him unconditionally. Kaali believes in Vijay and lends her unflinching support to him.
