Telugu Megastar Chiranjeevi debuted in Bollywood with Pratibandh. Besides winning lot of accolades from film critics for him, the movie was big hit at the Box Office. Its success bought him a few other big offers like Aaj Ka Goonda Raj and The Gentleman. Now, his son Ram Charan Teja has debuted in Hindi with Zanjeer, which has been creating positive buzz ever since director Apoorva Lakhia announced it. But unlike his dad, the young Telugu actor fails to recreate his father's magic on screen and impress the critics. That is due to his comparison with Amitabh Bachchan.
Zanjeer is an ordinary action drama, which does not boast about any great story or theme. However, it was a classic in B-Town because of Amitabh Bachchan's role. When Big B's career was on the verge of sinking, this film hit the screens and became big hit at the Box Office. That's not all the movie coined the tag - 'Angry Young Man' for Bachchan. Since then several films were made on a brooding cop, but movie aficionados and enthusiasts revered Zanjeer as an iconic film and feel none of them is equal to it.
When Apoorva Lakhia cast Ram Charan Teja for Amitabh's role in Zanjeer remake, his announcement had set many tongues wagging in B-Town. The worry/question of everyone was that whether the Mega Power Star would be able to do justice to this iconic role. With the film hit screens this Friday, most of the film critics feel that Cherry has perfect physique for the role and has also done dare-devil stunts for it. But what has not gone well with many is his facial expressions. Everyone is of the opinion that he has maintained single emotion on his face throughout the movie.
We bring you the film critics' opinions about Ram Charan's acting in Zanjeer remake. Continue to see them in the slideshow.
