Agni Sakshi Reviews:

It's basically the storyline of a girl who tries to begin a fresh life when the past comes to her in person and haunts her till she has to fake her own death. It sheds light on girls trapped in relationships that they cannot escape from, especially in the Indian society. If you are into bollywood movies, this film is a gotta see. The songs are decent but can be skipped. In today's globe where the name "Bollywood" reminds us of half-clad helpless actresses whose only purpose in the film is to yell for support while the macho actor comes from nowhere and rescues her, this film gives Bollywood viewers yet other reason to be patient and wait for films such as these. Even though there are moments in this film where the main actor rescues the actress from her "past", there is definitely a plot! Manisha Koirala and Nana Patekar especially give us a stunning performance and the rest of the cast do a decent job too.


Hollywood film - Sleeping with the Opponent (1991) starring Julia Roberts, Patrick Bergin and Kevin Anderson presented the storyline of a runaway wife who has to run away because of her abusive husband and then she finds her soulmate in the form of another, better boy who does not take his love to absurd possessiveness culminating in abuse of his spouse. This storyline concept impressed Bollywood filmmakers so much that within a several years, many Bollywood adaptations of this storyline came on the Indian screen viz. Yaaraana (1995) featuring Raj Babbar as the villain, Agni Saakshi (1996) featuring Nana Paatekar as the villain, Daraar (1996) featuring Arbaaz Khan as the villain, Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe (2002) featuring Sanjay Kapoor as the villain etc. Among all these, Agni Saakshi emerged as the greatest adaptation of the Hollywood film and therefore, it proved to be a box office grosser whereas the another ones flopped. I watched it twice in the theatre.Agni Saakshi (the sacred fire as the witness) says the storyline of Shubhaangi (Manisha Koiraala) who is now a runaway bride with her true name being Madhu. She was married to Vishwanaath (Nana Paatekar) who though loved his wife was overpossessive about her and there was a sadistic abnormality in his personality. Madhu actually rechristened as Shubhaangi comes into contact with Suraj (Jackie Shroff) who immediately falls in love with her and marries her. However the marital bliss of Shubhaangi aka Madhu proves to be short-lived when Vishwanaath who was made to trust that Madhu was dead, finds her and then demands her back from Suraj on the ground of himself still being the legal husband of Madhu. After many dramatic and thrilling incidents in the narrative, Shubhaangi aka Madhu gets rid of him to spend her life happily as Suraj's wife.Writer Ranbir Pushp and director Partho Ghosh have handled the storyline very well and after devoting some footage to the romantic track of Shubhaangi and Suraj as well as that of Shubhaangi's mate Urmila (Divya Dutta) and Suraj's younger brother Ravi (Ravi Behl), does not let the audience to yawn even for a moment. The breathtaking narrative keeps the audience thoroughly engrossed for the major part of the movie. This 142 mins long film is highly entertaining, there's tiny doubt about it.The largest USP of this film is unarguably Nana Paatekar who is a natural actor and is able to infuse life into any role assigned to him. He has brought the overpossessive abusive husband Vishwanaath alive on the screen and turned this film into an extra-ordinary one which cannot be categorized with the run-of-the-mill items made in plenty in Bollywood. His scenes and dialogs have been written with care and attention and his mesmerizing performance has made each stage featuring him a highly impressive one. If not for anything else, this film can be watched at least or his sake.The director has exasperated the sadistic love of Vishwanaath for his wife with finesse. The audience wants to hate the abusive husband but cannot because this sadism includes an indirect element of comedy also. Despite feeling sympathetic for the aggrieved wife, the audience cannot support but laugh at the mannerisms of the husband who is apparently the villain of the story.Other than Nana also, the director has been able to extract natural performances from his cast. The second greatest performer is Manisha Koiraala who has excelled in the role of the aggrieved wife who has no option but to run away from her abusive husband and adopt a second identity to live the remaining part of her life peacefully. She loves her second husband from the core of her heart but is very much concerned for his well-being and security which is in danger because of her first husband's chasing her. Manisha was very pretty in her twenties and her performance in this film is one of the greatest performances of her career. Jackie Shroff is fine as the character though his tragedy is that the villain has got a higher profile than him in the movie.Nadeem Shravan have composed nice melody for Sameer's lyrics. Jaana O Jaan-e-Tamanna Tu Meri Gulfaam Hai, O Piya O Piya, O Yaara Dil Lagaana, Waada Karo Dil Se Kabhi Door Nahin Jaaoge Tum, Mujhko Dildaar Yaar Aisa Chaahiye, Ab Aankhen Band Karo etc. are all reasonably nice to listen and enjoy.Summing up, Agni Saakshi is the greatest Indian ver of Sleeping with the Opponent which is damn entertaining and likable by all genres of audiences. I suggest this thoroughly entertaining thriller film to not only the fanatics of Nana Paatekar but the film buffs in general also.


'Agni Sakshi' is the second clone of the Hollywood hit 'Sleeping with the Enemy' after 'Yaraana' and surprisingly this one is far better than the previous clone.The plot is just the same as the original but honestly, the plot is nowhere near the original. 'Agni Sakshi' is packed with lots of twists and turns which would surely engross the audience.Coming back to the plot, it says the storyline of a girl named Shivangi who tries to forget her past and begin her life anew by marrying a type and rich guy called Suraj. But Shivangi's past comes to haunt her back as her abusive husband (whom she marries before marrying Suraj) comes back from nowhere to claim his possession. Will he succeed in taking her back or will she war back? As for the production department, this film is absolutely well-handled with a great screenplay and brilliant direction. Partho Ghosh could be applauded for his attempt in remaking a Hollywood thriller without ripping it off scene-by-scene and dialogue-to-dialogue.Acting is nice of almost all the actors. But amongst them, Nana Patekar and Manisha Koirala steal the present with their natural acting talent. Nana is absolutely convincing as the violently possessive husband. Manisha plays her part with diligence. Jackie Shroff is good. Ravi Behl and Divya Dutta have nothing to do.Music is brilliant. 'O Yaara Dil Lagana' is my favourite song in the movie. Editing is up to the mark. Cinematography is perfect and standard. But the choreography and costume designing department in the film were a letdown.Despite a several drawbacks, this film is a gotta watch. It's a nice time-pass flick that should be enjoyed with family.
