Not the same as "Vijay Dinanath Chavan...pura naam"
The generation that grew up on the ORIGINAL "Agneepath" starring Amitabh Bachchan, Danny D, Mithun knows that USP of that movie were dialogues written by Kader Khan and not the plot, the plot was primarily lifted from "Scarface" starring Al Pacino. Only mistake Dharma Productions made while re-making the movie was not hiring Kadar Khan to re-write the dialogues again. This is not a judgment on the acting or making of the new version, but just a fans observation. The dialogues of the original are still talked about and remembered like dialogues of "Sholay" or "Sharaabi". I don't think someone who watched the NEW "Agneepath" will remember the dialogues of the movie two hours after they are done watching it.
