Who's in it? Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra
The plot Fans of the 1990 original staring Amitabh Bachchan and Danny Denzongpa as Vijay and Kancha may be wary about the remake, but take it from us, the revamped flick is well worth a watch.
Bollywood heartthrob, Hrithik Roshan, has filled Big B's sizeable shoes as Vijay, while Sanjay Dutt has taken on the role of the evil Kancha.
This good vs. evil story starts out in the small Indian village of Mandwa, where a young Vijay is taught about the path of fire, or agneepath, by his honourable and principled father. His life is completely torn apart when the evil (and terrifying) drug dealer Kancha, kills his father, forcing Vijay and his pregnant mother to flee to Mumbai.
At just 12-years-old Vijay is taken under the wing of gang lord Rauf Lala (Rishi Kapoor), and is already set on returning to Mandwa to get revenge for his father.
Flash forward 15 years and the all-grown-up, rippling biceped man version of Vijay has become obsessed with his mission, alienating those closest to him, only looking to his closest friend, the kind-hearted and loving Kaali (Chopra) for support.
When Vijay finally makes it back to Mandwa to hunt down Kancha, a dramatic David vs. Goliath battle commences, but will Vijay finally get the revenge that he feels so compelled to mete out?
