In a small Indian village Mandwa, Vijay Dinanath Chauhan is taught by his principled father about the path of fire – AGNEEPATH. His life is completely shattered when the evil drug dealer Kancha (Sanjay Dutt) hangs his father to death. Vijay leaves for Bombay with his pregnant mother and has only one mission in life- to come back to Mandwa and bring back the glory of his father’s name.
In Bombay, 12-yr-old Vijay is taken under the wings of the city gang lord Rauf Lala (Rishi Kapoor). From then on it is a journey of revenge where Vijay Dinanath Chauhan (Hrithik Roshan) makes and breaks many relationships only to get closer to his aim. Vijay finds support only in his best friend Kaali (Priyanka Chopra), who stands by him at every moment in his life. Fifteen years later his hatred for Kancha takes him back to Mandwa where life comes full circle.
This is the story that will unfold for us on January 26th, when the new Agneepath, directed by Karan Malhotra hits theaters. About the film, which he calls a “very emotional dramatic film”, producer Karan Johar said recently that this is a tribute to the original which starred Amitabh Bachchan but it is also its own story, “The Agneepath of today is totally different from the Agneepath of two decades back. An entirely different world has been created this time around.”
