'Zanjeer' is about.C.P Vijay Khanna (Ram Charan) who is transferred from Hyderabad to Mumbai (Note: He has been transferred 17 times in merely 5 years). He teams up with the murder witness Mala (Priyanka Chopra) and investigates the murder. All these investigations connect the dots to the oil mafia Mogul (Prakash Raj). Vijay tries to expose Teja, but in process he gets suspended.
Although story is the exact mock-up of Zanjeer (1973) but it is no match. It insults the cult scene between Amitabh & Pran in the police station; the fight between them is obnoxious, Priyaka-Ram Charan romance track is flat, Prakash Raj-Mahi Gill look unbearable and vulgar.
Ram Charan reprising Bachchan's role as Vijay Khanna, who tries really hard to get the Angry Young Man avatar but fails absurdly. He couldn't flex his facial expressions according to the role however; he sustains the only one facial expression throughout.
Sanjau Dutt looks ridiculous & indifferent as Sher Khan; it is definitely no match to iconic Pran. He does not share any chemistry with Ram Charan as both look distant.
Priyanka's character, NRI Mala, is intended to add some comic reliefs which are banal. She performs "Pinki Item Song" in her facebook friend's wedding and witnesses a murder and start living with Ram Charan. It does not give any reason behind the love story also any emotional grounds.
Prakash Raj is doing the same thing over and over again which is intolerable now and he also dresses like a ring master of any circus. Mahi Gill only does "MEOW", what a waste of such talented actress.
Unfortunately, I do not have an Idea what was Atul Kulkarni doing?
I don't remember any song of the movie but inappropriately used "Rghupati Raghav Raja Ram" track during fight sequence, which was atrocious.
It is high time, such nonsense should be stopped. 2.8/10
