Zanjeer Movie Review


Ratings:0/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand's Verdict (IBNLive)
Ramgopal Varma Ki Aag, which I consider the worst Hindi movie ever made, now has company in the annals of film history. It's a coincidence that the second worst Hindi film I had the misfortune of watching is also a remake of a classic 70s hit - 'Zanjeer'. I'm going with zero out of five, for the new 'Zanjeer'. Without belittling their year-long battle with the film's makers to be compensated for remaking their script, one has to wonder if screenwriters Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar might consider donating some part of their settlement towards admitting these guys in film school.

The new ZANJEER borrows from the original, but it is more of an updated avatar of that film. The essence remains the same, the characters are similar too, even a dialogue or two has been retained... but let me put it this way -- it's his interpretation of a film that's admired even after four decades of its release. On the whole, ZANJEER is a triumph for Ram Charan, who gets abundant opportunity to exhibit his talent and scores exceedingly well. However, the film comes across as a regular masala fare that caters to the single screen spectator mainly and also for enthusiasts of typical Bollywood entertainers. As for the comparisons with the original ZANJEER, I suggest try not to get there!

No actor can survive a train-wreck like this. Ramcharan is a superstar in Telugu cinema. I haven’t seen any of those films but here he works with two expressions - and anyway director Apoorva Lakhia seems more interested in his bulging muscles.The best thing in Zanjeer areTeja’s amazingly gaudy outfits. That’s what I was looking forward to in every scene. I’m going with one star.

On the whole, Zanjeer is a dull show which also looks dated. Except for action, that too, mainly for the mass audience, there is not much for the viewers. As such, the film’s run at the box-office will not be exciting. The Telugu version of the film has also been released simultaneously and its fate at the ticket windows may be better due to the stardom of Telugu films’ star, Ram Charan.

Yet, this film should be judged as a stand-alone offering because attempts to compare the two versions will find the current one falling short, especially in the dialogue and music departments. Teja fails to strike fear, playing something between Al Capone (Untouchables) and a buffoon. The climax, shot against the backdrop of a Moharram procession, is interesting. Ram Charan, as the brooding policeman, excels in action. His dark eyes with long lashes adeptly convey anger. Sanjay Dutt is competent and lovable.

Zanjeer was never a particularly great film. Sure, it had Amitabh Bachchan at his most primal, all flammable eyes and sincerely-furious baritone. And it had Pran, who brought dignity and warmth to the proceedings. It had dialogue that seared the ear,The new Zanjeer, directed by Apoorva Lakhia, has none of these things. Least of all the hero. Ram Charan makes his Hindi film debut with this Bachchan remake, and my heart goes out to his fans who will have to sit through this tediously trashy film.These are what makes it a film we can watch over and over and over, with considerable awe.

Considering comparisons with the original are inevitable, the latest version will only expose Bollywood’s inability to fine-tune or even, convincingly rehash a story that had once thrilled the audience. While it’d be unfair to bracket 'Zanjeer' along with director Ram Gopal Verma’s infamous take on the iconic ‘Sholay’ or Karan Malhotra’s bearable, yet mediocre adaptation of ‘Agneepath’, Lakhia’s fractured and glossy attempt just doesn't make the cut.

This film brings with it a series of whys, the first being the biggest: why remake an iconic film which has never disappeared from view? The filmmakers have been carefully calling it a "tribute", and they have added a couple of elements which weren't in the older film, but to me it was a neither here-nor-there thing: it's neither faithful remake nor campy, knowing tribute. It's just a poor copy. So why? There really is nothing in this film that catches your eye except for a few set pieces, and a new male face which could make some space for himself if he gets something better. The rest is best described by a dialogue in the film which goes thus: "that was work, this is a hangover".

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Tushar Joshi Site:DNA
Zanjeer struggles to find its own ground. The first half is a land mine of unnecessary songs and hackneyed dialogues that seem written for an audience for a different era. Whenever Lakhia tries to create a reference point to the original or recreate a moment, the initiative falls flat. It’s not just originality but also lack of novelty that mars the film from being anything but ordinary. Prakash Raj needs a break from playing the same roles where his accent and bulging eyes do the rehearsed cha cha cha routine.

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Mohar Basu Site:Koimoi
What’s Good: Based on the old Zanjeer, the film ultimately is an undeniably novel concept. What’s Bad: Needless tinkering of a story that was better left untouched. Watch or Not?: I am not really a fan of remakes, but this clearly ranks amongst the shabbier ones I’ve encountered. Based on Prakash Mehra’s vintage classic that marked the advent of Big B as Bollywood’s angry young man, Zanjeer even with its share of spiffy action clearly misses the raw flair that Salim-Javed’s touch had done to the screenplay. All the crashing thrills and smashing stunts simply couldn’t save this film from being a flat, tiresome and sore bore.

Ratings:4/5 Review By: Subhash K Jha (IANS) Site:NDTV , India Today
Throughout the film, we sense the director's immense affection for the original Zanjeer, a reverence that never clouds his judgement.This is one remake that stands tall and lithe. It is manned by a manful supply of action and yet manages to keep the machismo understated. Breakneck-paced, adrenaline-pumping, pulse-pounding -- Lakhia's deconstructed version of the Prakash Mehra film is a full-on pacy paisa-vasool entertainer with brio and balls. Ram Charan Teja makes an impressive Bollywood debut. We can safely say he is the man among the boys. Go for it!

If someone who looked good took the role of a hero in this movie the performance would have been better. I pity Priyanka for being part of the film.

  12. dont think that what critics you get for telugu movies are correct.......you get 4 out of 5 even for a flop movie in telugu.......telugu industry has alot to grow in acting.......critics see acting not some macho guy who has dancing skills........actor is someone who can act not someone who can dance or showoff his body.......you must remember the least fact that there is no site for telugu movies which gives the correct rating......had it been a macho and dancer being called an actor then all the actors who got their oscars should return it back......grow up kid telugu heroes & directors have alot to learn........

  14. charan is a south superstar because of father & talented directer rajamouli sir. megadheera is all about rajamoulis vision. its not hit becauase of ram charan, but because of rajamouli. it doesnt mean if any one is a superstar is a good actor. like rajni sir is a super star, but not good actor like kamal hasan or amitabh bachhan, salman khan is a super star but not good actor like amir khan or irrfan khan. charan is a super star but not good actor as vikram or NTR.

  25. I cannot understand from the critics of Hindi movies and Bollywood fans especially when South Super Star's acting in a Bollywood movie. Please when you are doing a critic about the movie should give the honest remark of the movie don't be biased. Even I am not telugu guy but I like most of the telugu movies, here some people are given bad remark about telugu movie industry, first you look most of the Bollywood hit movies are remaked from south movies ex. Wanted ( Original verision- Telugu ), Rowdy Rathore ( Original Version- Telugu ), Bodyguard ( Original version- Malayalam ), Housefull 1 & 2 ( Original version- Tamil ) and many more movies are remaked from southern industry movies only. The people who are giving comment about southern movie industry first to watch the acting of original version and then compare with Bollywood actor's performance whether it has matched or not. While commenting about Ram charan first watch his earlier movies performance and then comment.

Magadheera is industry hit mainly due to Rajamouli not Ramcharan. If u see the movies of racha and nayak, they are total waste. After watching u dont know why they became hits in telugu.

  40. ZANJEER : Get yourself chained if you can’t hold your urge to watch but stay away! [0.5/5]

    I know it is a bit exaggerated reaction but can we propose a cinema ACT or a regulation kind of thing in bollywood so that filmmakers like Ram Gopal Verma gets a ban […for shorter span at least] on making films further, after committing horrendous crime of remaking old bollywood classics? But wait! He’s not alone there on the top […of the worsts] to enjoy all the beatings, Apoorva Lakhia joins him with his rare gem ZANJEER- a so-called official remake of 70’s Amitabh Bachchan starrer game-changer of same name! It is so disgusting that even calling it a film would mean immense disrespect to cinema.

    Where the old classic, directed by Prakash Mehra was packed with good music, powerful performances, solid punches in the writing, a totally engaging story-line and possibly the need of the hour to represent anger of the youth, reciprocating in a blasting yet controlled aggressive manner to better the society, Lakhia’s tribute goes wrong on all aspects. Neither it tries to entertain nor does it create the need to tell something or the other to its audiences. It merely looks like someone had an itch to satisfy his ‘though not found any traces of’ creative cells. It is a first in long time where everyone competes with each other not to offer their best but the worst.

    Southern superstar Ram Charan plays ACP Vijay Khanna who in particular, can be seen wearing formals in day/on duty and a police uniform while being at home with his girl. That can also be cleared in explanatory debate but what about those couple of stiffed expressions on his face for most parts? Then, there is this ‘raghupati raaghav rajaram’ tune in the background whenever he decides to take a walk from the scene in slow-motion. Priyanka Chopra looks disinterested and takes her part so much for granted as if she has come for a picnic. Prakash Raj as the stylishly all docked up villain Teja bores with his one-dimensional comical portrayals of bad guys in recent. He doesn't offer anything new and that is a serious concern. Mahi Gill as Mona Darling irritates. Sanjay Dutt finds himself in shoes of Pran saab as Sher Khan but consoles with his looks only. In an added subplot, Atul Kulkarni plays an honest journalist with investigative instinct, loosely based on the real life crime journo J. Dey, murdered in suspicious circumstances.

    Overall, it is a sloppy-shoddy-shaky attempt that can only be dumped down as a trash. Watching it could make you feel like torturing yourself for all the sins you have been doing all these years. Some films accidentally entertain you with a certain level of absurdity and overtly self-indulgence; this doesn't even reach there to bring some relief. The worst of the year! Get yourself chained if you can’t hold your urge to watch but stay away at any cost! [0.5/5]

  46. There was a time when Amitabh Bachchan did Zanjeer in the 70’s and won over the hearts of the millions of Indians. The director, Apoorv Lakhia takes the courage to remake the classic in his own style.

    Zanjeer, alike the 70’s classic, has an angry young man in the lead. It is tollywood actor Ram Charan who plays the role of Inspector Vijay Khanna and who vows to clean the city of Mumbai. He is in charge of a case whose sole eyewitness is Mala (Priyanka Chopra), an NRI. Investigations soon reveal that Teja (Prakash Raj), the oil Mafia, has strong connections with the murderers. Vijay also encounters Khan (Sanjay Dutt),who is into illegal business of cars, during his course of investigation. Khan gets inspired by the honesty of Vijay and offers him his hand for help. The rest follows.

    Zanjeer is such a waste of resources. Poor direction and the poor screenplay just shows that. When so much could have been done to bring out the charisma of the early 70’s, Zanjeer falls short of expectations. This 140 minute running time is just so hard to bear. The director, Apporv Lakhia tries to cook an old recipe in a new style which unfortunately leaves a bitter taste in your mouth.


    The debutant Ram Charan fails to leave any mark, maybe a better choice next time would help him. Priyanka Chopra wastes her talent. Prakash Raj still is bearable and Sanjay Dutt is the only one you would want to see in the movie.

    Zanjeer gave me an impression of a typical B-grade hindi movie. Zanjeer adds to my list of the worst hindi movies I’ve seen in the past one year. These were definitely the most painful 140 minutes of my life.

I just see the evening & night show of SUDH DESI ROMANCE & zanzeer respectivly.contrastingly different, first one is a creative one while zanzeer is a destructive one.Why producers are wasting their moneys in making zanzeer?I have never seen such a worstly directed movie like zanzeer. .From d release of chennai express to zanzeer all d movies r disaponting except MADRAS CAFE & SUDH DESI ROMANCE both of them have some refreshing air atleast.If such trend continues then footfall for movies will going to decrease definitely.

  50. Ganesh is right. if telegu industry doesnt provide best movies but they are atleast 1000 times better than cheap bollywood movies. Forget about just india bollywood is the worst film industry in the world if we consider their high budget and extreme low quality of movies. forget about hollywood..bollywood will tae 25 years to produce movies like telegu ndustry s provdng.
