It will be unfair to compare both versions of Agnipath. One was a director/producer's fore into recreating Scarface type movie and the second as said at the start of the movie "is a dedication to the older version" Hrithik: Good subtle performance.Unfair to compare him with AB - he is portrayed differently | SanjayD: Great performance - Best Villain for the year award | Priyanka: Present for ha ha's only | ... +'s Slickly locales and recreating Mandva | Slow pace of the movie hidden by LOUD background - saves the movie | Different take of the original - worth watching for just that | Actor who played Dinanath Chauhan's role | .... -'s Choppy editing and screen play | No Krishnan Iyer | You can only understand the story if you've watched the original (stand alone and the story falls apart) ......... Worth a watch if you saw the older one or if you are out and have nothing else going on.

Performance

HR performance level in this movie was best of his movies so far.. He carried the whole movie on his shoulder... If you're a HR fan... This will be a treat for you.. just done compare old Agneepath with this one.. they actually have improved the story line.. But in line of remakes,, this is the only one that stands a chance of saying " stood true to the expectation" unlike Don...

So-So

I wasn't very impressed with the movie. As everyone knows its a remake of a 1990 AB movie. The original was critically acclaimed, but failed commercially. I tried to watch it last year, and could not sit through it. I gave up after 40 mins into the movie. Over the top, overly dramatic, bad acting, horrible 90s costumes, bad music - the bane of most 80s/90s masala bollywood trash. The new one improves upon the original by doing away with a few characters - the irritating "madrasi", no romantic track involving the hero's sister, better acting, better production values and better music. Sanjay Dutt's character was much touted in the reviews, and he's menacing as Kancha Cheena, and so is Rishi Kapoor as Rauf Lala. But the screenplay disappoints. It just jumps all over the place ... i lost interest midway. Om puri is wasted. Priyanka does a good job of the small role that she essays. And Hrithik is a good actor, but his scale is much smaller that what AB had to do in the original.

Terrible interpretation/copy of the original, give it a pass. Ok to watch at home on a dvd rental.

First of all don't compare with original, you will be disappointed big time.Script seemed to be faltering quite a lot and director couldn't build characters at all.. However rishi and Sanjay did good job to hide deficiency of poor script and direction.
