Zanjeer Movie Review

The only anger in this Zanjeer comes from the audience

The Hindu

Stinks of a blatant disregard for the audience's intelligence and entertainment

It's neither faithful remake nor campy, knowing tribute. It's just a poor copy

Indian Express

Where the original was a perfectly timed piece of cinema that reflected the mood of a nation embodied in an impassioned performance by Amitabh Bachchan, Lakhia's version just doesn't cut it by any measure

Mumbai Mirror

Like its hero on screen, the film too has no reason to exist

Tediously trashy film


Not a patch on the original


The new-age Zanjeer doesn't hold half as much promise as the cult classic did and literally falls flat on its face


Zanjeer doesn’t hold a candle to the original

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

Times of India

The film comes across as a regular masala fare
