A new trailer of debutant Karan Malhotra’s Agneepath has just released. Produced by Karan Johar, this film is an official remake of Mukul Anand’s Agneepath and stars Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra and Rishi Kapoor. Take a look.

And here are few observations…

1. This doesn’t look like the usual KJo film. And that’s a a good start. Dongri? I am not sure if any of the characters from any KJo production ever knew that a place called Dongri exist. Good to see that Dharma Productions is exploring beyond SoBo.

2. Dialogues by Piyush Mishra. Great.

3. Music by Ajay-Atul. The music director duo started with Marathi films and quickly made their mark. Again, good decision to go with Ajay-Atul instead of the usual suspects – Shankar,Ehsaan, Loy or Vishal-Shekhar.

4. More roles for actors like Brijendra Kala and Pankaj Tripathi (is that him in the opening scene?) makes me feel that we are going in right direction.

The first look of (new) Agneepath is finally out. Produced by Karan Johar and directed by debutant Karan Malhotra, it stars Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutta, Rishi Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. Credits include Adapted Screenplay – Ila Datta & Karan Malhotra, Music – Ajay-Atul, Dialogues – Piyush Mishra and Lyrics – Amitabh Bhattacharya.

Interestingly it’s not an exact remake but more of an adaptation. Looks like high intensity drama on big scale and full of colours. And unlike any other KJo Productions. Well, that’s a good start. The only thing not working in the trailer is the logo of Dharma Productions and that weird background music with it. Dear KJo, now get rid of it. Enough of emotional attachment.

Hrithik RoshanFirst it was Hrithik Roshan. Then Abhishek Bachchan. And finally its back to Hrithik Roshan.

According to Mumbai Mirror, its confirmed now. Hrithik Roshan will play the lead in the remake of Agneepath, to be produced by Karan Johar and debutant Karan Malhotra will direct it.

After Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish, Hrithik was supposed to work with Vishal Bhardwaj. But now he wants to complete the remake first and then move on to Bhardwaj’s film.  So Vishal have to wait.

Agneepath was produced by Yash Johar and directed by Mukul Anand. Amitabh Bachchan, Mithun Chakraborty and Danny Dengzongpa were the lead actors. Mithun also bagged a national award for this film.

And like us, those of you who are missing the great lines of Harivansh Rai Bachchan, here it is.

Agneepath

 अग्नि पथ! अग्नि पथ! अग्नि पथ!

वृक्ष हों भले खड़े, 

हो घने, हो बड़े,

 एक पत्र-छॉंह भी मॉंग मत, मॉंग मत, मॉंग मत!

अग्नि पथ! अग्नि पथ! अग्नि पथ!

 

तू न थकेगा कभी!

 तू न थमेगा कभी!

 तू न मुड़ेगा कभी!

कर शपथ! कर शपथ! कर शपथ!

 

ये महान दृश्य है,

चल रहा मनुष्य है,

 अश्रु श्वेत् रक्त से,

लथ पथ, लथ पथ, लथ पथ !

अग्नि पथ! अग्नि पथ! अग्नि पथ!
