Bad remake of equally bad Angaaray .
11 February 2021 | by nadkarnisumeetSee all my reviews

Footpath review :

A remake of Hollywood hit State of Grace (1990) which was already remade earlier as Angaaray (1998) by Mahesh Bhatt. Vikram Bhatt took the same plot written by Mahesh Bhatt and made Footpath with a different cast. Aftab Shivdasani was main hero and he got some steamy scenes with the hot and sexy Bipasha Basu. Footpath was Emraan Hashmi's debut though he attained stardom a year later with Murder (2004). He played the role of Aftab's buddy and a good natured thug. One wonders why Vikram Bhatt chose to remake the flop Angaaray. Did he think that he could handle the plot better than his mentor Mahesh Bhatt? Hmm!!!

I remember seeing this movie on Independence day holiday at Gaiety Galaxy, Bandra and while the Housefull board was neatly propped outside the hall, the auditorium was half empty. Clearly, the blackers had lost a lot of money!!!

Regards, Sumeet Nadkarni.
