Zanjeer – remake of a classic

ZanjeerPran and Amitabh are going to be fondly remembered when Zanjeer hits the screens today. First made by Prakash Mehra in 1973, this movie has been recast in a modern version by Prakash Mehra’s son.

The original story revolves around a honest cop (Amitabh) that tames an unruly Pathan (Pan), with a demure Jaya Bhaduri as the knife-sharper woman who the cop falls in love with.
