Zanjeer is a remake of that yesteryears Amitabh Bachchan classic, and is directed by Apoorva Lakhia. It stars Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan (as the iconic ACP Vijay Khanna) and Priyanka Chopra (as Mala) in a role where her intro is to a song that goes “Pinky Hai Paisewalon Ki”. Priyanka Chopra, you might also remember, is an actress who’s gone on record to say that she’ll never do raunchy numbers. This film has opened to a spate of 0-star reviews and I hate to say that I concur. I’d like to think that the makers of this film aren’t totally oblivious, though. Then again, how would you describe someone who makes a film this bad and still ends it with a setup to a sequel?
