Mega Powerstar Ram Charan's 'Zanjeer (Thoofan)' is releasing today across the world. The movie was directed by Apoorva Lakhia under the banner of Reliance Entertainments.
Have a look at the story of the movie.
Story: The aggressive and honest cop is ACP Vijay Khanna. Though he is rewarded with a record number of transfers for his upstanding nature, he has never changed his mind set. An argument with some ruling party members in Hyderabad made him to attend to Mumbai by transfer.
In Mumbai, Vijay is charge with the investigation of the murder of a deputy collector. Vijay soon realizes that an Oil mafia is behind the crime. Then Vijay found an NRI named Maya (Priyanka Chopra), who is the only witness and Vijay seeks her help. As the investigation goes on, Vijay realizes Rudra Pratap Teja (Prakash Raj) is the man behind the entire crime.
As Vijay bends closer to the truth, Pratap Teja uses all his influence and by money and power to get Vijay suspend. Daring Vijay vows to destroy Teja and his empire.
By taking the help of Sher Khan (Sri Hari) and an honest crime reporter named Jay Dev (Tanikella Bharani).
Plus Points: Ram Charan has dispatched yet another power packed performance. Charan looks exceptional as a cop and he fits into the character of ACP Vijay Khanna. By comparing Ram Charan with Angry Young Man Amitabh Bachchan, as his remake film is 'Thoofan', there is no change in Ram Charan. Charan with his performance proved that he only suited in the Amitabh shoes.
Priyanka Chopra contributed her level best. She looks hot in the songs named 'Mumbai Ke Hero' and 'Pinky'. Sri Hari as Sher Khan & Tanikella Bharani as reporter have given a splendid performance. Their characters in the film are filled with double meaning dialogues that will definitely work with B and C centre people.
The ongoing speed of the film is good. The short run-time is a big asset for the film. Opening titles song is also a big setup for the flick. Overall the Charan fan will get impressed by his new character as an honest cop.
Minus Points: Compared to the film viewers who watched original 'Zanjeer' are not much attracted to the present flick as it is quite lightweight and predictable. Lack of romance in between main couple Charan and Priyanka Chopra is also a drawback.
Unlike original Zanjeer this film lacks the depth of emotion in between Charan and Sri Hari.
Lack of comedy is also a minus point.
Technical Aspects: Gururaj's cinematography is good. Editing has not reached the mark. Musicians would have really helped the film. Telugu dialogues are just up to the mark.
Apoorva Lakhia has succeeded in maintaining good clip entire the film, must have been included entertainment.
Final conclusion: A higher quality script and a spoonful of entertainment would have surely helped the film. Still, the film ends up as a proper cop play.
