Seems that a remake of a classic once again can take the box office by storm. Agneepath, which is a new telling of the classic Amitabh Bachchan starrer is well on its way to be an iconic film itself and it has only been in the theater for one day. The Karan Malhotra directed Agneepath, starring Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra had absoultely incredible opening day numbers. The film has already raked in approximately over 20 crore! If at the end of the day that number indeed ends up to be true or, as it is looking to be, even higher it will be the biggest opening day ever.
Audiences are so loving this film in India that at every showing we hear there are whistles, claps and screams and more! At a theater fans actually were putting garlands on the posters and hoardings.
Critically it is getting very good reviews with each star Hrithik, Priyanka, Sanjay and Rishi getting praise as well as huge amounts of applause for director Karan Malhotra and his new vision. Of course the tweets have been a flying (sorry pun a bit intended) and here are some of the ones praising the film from critics, stars and fans!
The true hero of #agneepath is @karanmalhotra21 ! Such direction makes u stay glued to the seat for 3 hrs! Got to see it at Chandan again! Sanjay Dutt takes off where he left of in the end of Vaastav, the bald pate adds menace! A formidable mountain of a villain.But to see rishi kapoor sink his teeth into the pathan villains role was a special treat! U sir are amazing #agneepath @priyankachopra sparkles! This lady is spunky, sexy and savvy! Unafraid and uninhibited #agneepath U need roles like Agneepath to see what @iHrithik is capable of! He is brilliant! @karanmalhotra21 what a reimagining! What scenes, what direction!!Hrithik is brilliant but slumming it out.. Aaiii shapath! Still as a man I can say…he makes me proud to be his species.. Ha ha

Hrithik has took the cult classic to a whole new level ! this movie should break all records and sweep all awards !! #Agneepath
Agneepath was fantastic. Hrithik (@ihrithik) was extraordinary and a total Hindi Philuum. I loveeed it.
#Agneepath with Hrithik is a perfect lesson on how to pay proper tribute to a classic. Carries forwards the legacy in a brilliant way!
Loved Agneepath! A complete masala entertainer after long. Packed wid action, drama, ,latkas, jhatkas, emotions and mindblowing performances! Hrithik proves he’s brilliance yet again. While Sanjay Dutt has refined the villain in Hindi cinema. It will take a while to beat this one! Hrithik, Priyanka, Sanjay Dutt n Rishi Kapoor take the story to another level with their outstanding performances.
