Agneepath watched



So, as  mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I wanted to watch new version of Agneepath.

Overall the movie is disppointing but it has few interesting moments in it.

Interesting moments:

I liked the background of Mandwa picturised in the movie. It not only attracted eyes but it also had a grey shade. The spot with "Bargad ka Ped" was the icing on the cake.

The get up of the two villians Rauf Lala and Kancha was awesome. While Kancha was known scary right from the time he appeared in Agneepath trailors, Rauf Lala was a surprise package. It totally changed the way one would normally imagine Rishi kapoor.

The song "Deva Shri Ganesha" was exciting.

I totally liked some of the dialogues delievered by Sanjay Dutt aka Kancha. Take this one towards the end of movie for example: "Are are, thodi sans baki rakh, abhi to Bargad ke Ped pe jana hai" (I had a good laugh at it instead of feeling pity for Hrithik's character).

Disappointments:
Movie begins very well and keeps its grip on the viewer, till the point where Hrithik Roshan is introduced. Then it starts loosing slowly.

Did Master Dinanath had no relatives where his wife (Zarina Wahab) and son could have taken shelter in such tragic situation? Instead they end up in a red light area in Mumbai.

It was difficult to understand why Om puri was so supportive to Vijay all the time in the movie.(Being in such a high position,why was he so much desperate to save  Vijay's sister when Rauf Lala abducted her?)

Priyanka Chopra is totally wasted. I guess there was no need of that character in the  movie.

Director spent too much time trying to develop emotional attachments of Vijay with his mother and sister.That was one main reason where it lost the grip.

Vijay at no point appeared a master player in getting his enemies down.All I remember is he getting beaten up every now and then and surrendering to either Rauf Lala or Kancha.

Why did Vijay decided to use that famous dialogue of Amitabh about his name during the Ganesh procession? The dying guy in addition to dying must be having hard time trying to understand what Hrithik was muttering  while getting stabbed, which by the way nobody around realised. Vijay actually should have used it to tell Kancha his identity, but yes I forgot, he was all the time busy getting beaten up from Kancha in different styles.

I remember Kancha stabbed Vijay atleast 3-4 times in stomach. But in the end when near the "Bargad Ka Ped", Vijay's shirt is torn, all I could see was clean 6 or 8 pack abs and slight cut on his chest which was not bleeding.

In the end I was all worried whether the rope has enough strength to bear the weight of Mighty Sanjay Dutt.

Finally Vijay did not suceeded in his mission. He wanted Mandwa back. But that was a very short time success while he died too immediately after Kancha.
So was it all worth to spend all his life time planning( if at all!!) the revenge.

I earlier had planned to compare the two versions of Agneepath, but looking at the number of disappointments compared to interesting moments, I guess making that comparison is not worth enough.
