“”Jab tak baithne ko na bola jaaye, seedhe khade raho..Yeh police station hain tumhare baap ka ghar nahin“”
This famous dialogue from one of the most revered films of India is an absolute class act from our very own Angry young man , Mr Amitabh Bachchan. Coupled with this, some memorable performances of powerhouse performers ( Pran, Jaya Bhaduri, Bindu and Ajit), Zanjeer remains one of the most significant films of Indian cinema.
Remaking a revered film of a eons is not an easy task, but director Apurva Lakhias first look of his modernized version of Zanjeer looks promising , with high doze of entertainment and dialogue baazi. Ram Charan Teja, the southern superstar( in his first bollywood role), reprises the author backed role of Vijay Saxena, with Sanjay Dutt , Prakash Raj, Priyanka Chopra and Mahie Gill redeeming the remaining pivotal characters.
With Agneepath creating a benchmark for a top quality product early last year, and Chasme badoor enjoying a successful run this summers, it will be interesting to see how audience respond to the remake of Zanjeer, a timeless classic…Have a look !
