January is generally considered a jinxed month in Bollywood, and its lackluster first half proves it. Now, all eyes are on the new Agneepath starring Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan and Sanjay Dutt as the villain Kancha Cheena. Do you think this new Agneepath will work wonders at the box office and break the jinx.
As per trade analysts, the response to the film is extremely positive -- pre-bookings have already started, and there is no doubt that the movie will open to packed houses, generating good money for the makers. But a lot depends on how the masses are going to take the film. If the original was about Amitabh Bachchan, the 2012 Agneepath looks like a treat for Sanjay Dutt fans. There is much already said about the actor, who is reviving the age-old Bollywood villain, and his deadly bald look.
Well, a special screening of Agneepath was held last night and a host of B-town celebs came to watch the film which is directed by the debutant Karan Malhotra. Yes, as expected, the celebs couldn’t stop raving about the film and lavishing heaps of praises that we got to read on Twitter. Here are some of the tweet posts on Agneepath. Read on:
- Just saw Agneepath superbly entertaining, Hrithik is fab as usual, Sanju is bloody scary, Rishi Kapoor is unreal, priyanka fab, director is a star.

- An unbiased opinion. Agneepath moves you like u cannot even imagine. A total “MUST” watch. I have no words to describe Agneepath. Congratulations Karan, Hrithik, Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra, Rishi Kapoor and Karan Malhotra. Kudos. Moved beyond words. Cannot even begin to describe the feeling u leave the movie with. Agneepath Agneepath Agneepath. @iHrithik - If there is an actor who isn’t an actor on screen, it is only you & you. God bless u with everything because you deserve that and more. Feel blessed to have you as family. Love u. Lastly but not in the least Katrina in the Chikni Chameli song is faaab. My new year resolution is to get her abs.

- Mindblowing Performances! More Power 2 Dharma, Karan Malhotra, Aporva, Hrithik, Karan, Priyanka, Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor. Agneepath Agneepath!”
While all these raves are great, one opinion that everyone would doubtlessly value is that of the original Vijay Dinanath Chauhan: Amitabh Bachchan. Wonder what Big B would have to say about the new Agneepath. Will let you know soon.
