Take the path of fire... then you shall not falter... note tire... and achieve your goal... is what Master Dinanath taught his son Vijay.
But then gangster KanchaCheena wanted the village for his devious activities... the master would be a hindrance... he was done away with.
Uprooted... humiliated in a plot which succeeded... the master's family migrated to the city across the sea.
Vijay swore that one day he will give the village to his mother.
The path of fire did Vijay take. From a shoeshine boy he became a dreaded gangster called "Bhai"...
Saved twice by a coconut vendor, Krishnan Iyer M.A... Vijay put him up to protect his sister who was studying outside the city and his mother who did not see eye to eye with Vijay on his quest to be number one of the underworld.
Reach the goal. Vijay did- he was invited by KanchaCheena to Mauritius. He survived a plot to kill him... struck a partnership deal with KanchaCheena... only with the intention of destroying him.
But then the came back to find his sister in love with Krishnan Iyer M.A. ... In the ensuring drama his mother calls him a goonda!!
Vijay shattered and he goes wayward.
Did he repent?
Did he give the village to his mother?
Did he bless the alliance of his only friend with his sister?
Did he vanquish KanchaCheena is what the rest of "Agneepath" will answer.
