- “Unlike Ram Gopal Varma’s remake of Sholay, which was purely misguided, and Karan Malhotra’sAgneepath, which was unnecessarily brutal, Zanjeer is just what a remake should be…”
- “What makes Vijay Khanna in the new Zanjeer special is the plot- mechanics which put him in time- worn situations, but subject him to dramatic dynamics that give the prototypical Angry Cop a renewed riveting life of violent score- settling.”
- “Ram Charan brings in an entirely unique brand of silent satyagraha to his character. “
- “The momentum never slackens even when Vijay Khanna gets down to expressing tender thoughts for the fast-talking befuddled and disoriented NRI girl Mala”
- “Sanjay Dutt steps splendidly into Pran’s part. His sequences, though limited by the actor’s physical unavailability, show the sensitive side to his aggressive personality”
