This is an Era of Bad Remakes
7 September 2013 | by manavsingh655See all my reviews

After super success of Agnipath remake and failure of Himmatwala it is the turn of Zanjeer to continue this remake culture.To execute the original same plot in modern style is not at all easy.Himmatwala had entered its name in worst remake record books and Zanjeer too makes an attempt to reach at par with Himmatwala but fails due to some entertainment quotient.Only few entertaining scenes manage to save it from sheer embarrassment.

To talk of the performances Ram charan has strong hold on the screen but you won't say wow after watching him till the end..Prakash raj is good but monotonous as always..Priyanka and Sanjay dutt are just fine..Apoorva lakhia's direction and screenplay is commendable but weak script, and bad execution overshadow it.

All in all a poor remake with performances far below expectations.Its better to wait and watch Zanjeer on TV than wasting your precious money in multiplexes.

I rate it 4 out of 10
