There are some things that I never thought I would see in a movie — like Vijay and Sher Khan playing a video game. Let me explain. Vijay is Hindi cinema’s original angry young man.

Right from the golden era days, Hindi film industry was fascinated by the south film industry. We saw many heroines, directors and technicians being imported into our Hindi films from south. But it was in the 80's, when we witnessed the south superstar he

Director Apoorva Lakhia uses his special talent to make this remake as crass as possible, turning it into a pedestrian, B-grade version of the original classic
'ज़ंजीर' यकीनन इसका श्रेय तो फिल्‍मकारों को ही दिया जाना चाहिए। एक ऐसी जानदार फिल्‍म, जिसने बॉलीवुड सिनेमा की दिशा बदलकर रख दी थी, को इस मजाकिया रूप में पेश करने के लिए खासा दमगुर्दा चाहिए : इस्‍पात...

The new-age Zanjeer doesn't hold half as much promise as the cult classic did and literally falls flat on its face. Watch the old one once again and forget about this.

The remake is a catastrophe and the film connoisseurs (especially Amitabh Bachchan’s ardent fans) will definitely like to watch Zanjeer (1973) over Zanjeer (2013)

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 a

 Remaking a film of this magnitude is a tough job,   because fitting into the shoes of Amitabh Bachchan  and Jaya Bahaduri  was never easy.

Overall, Shudh Desi Romance is a promising album with contemporary beats and lyrics. Heavily based on Rajasthani folk music, the songs Gulabi, Shudh Desi Romance and Tere Mere Beech Mein are our picks. This album will surely grow on you as you keep liste

Final call for Zanjeer boils down to simple things. Noone could undo self inflicted shackles. And Sanjay Dutt is the savior among the slaughtered.

Btown remake trace a long way since Mehboob Khan's classic 'Mother India' (1957 starring Nargis, Sunil Dutt and Rajendra Kumar) the remake of the maker's earlier Aurat(1940 starring Sardar Akhtar and Arun - Govinda's father)..
