Woke up late today but have some Cherry!

"Mumbai Ka Hero" from Zanjeer - an unfortunate and joyless collection of whorey goris and tropes ripped direct from American rap videos. Plus Cherry.

I can't help but feel that the original Inspector Vijay Khanna would not be caught dead doing any of this.

He was more the "keeps emotions bottled up and gaze from the window with an inscrutable expression at other people having fun" kind of guy.

Forgot about Priyanka as a dumbo bimbette ('Wow, this is real gun?'*facepalm*)
This is not a remake, but massacre of Zanjeer.

IMO, Inspector Vijay Khanna was a self-righteous, speechifying killjoy who deserved neither his cool girlfriend nor his even cooler sidekick, and was stuck in a slow-moving, barely coherent mess of a movie that couldn't even be bothered to use Bindu properly.

So no, I'm not gonna get worked up about the fact that someone stuck a random mid-00s song picturization with Priyanka in Andaaz mode into the remake.

@Odadune LOLLLL! You're killing me today! I love it! :D

I just wish they would stop calling EVERYthing a remake when clearly this film is anything but. Why not just call it something else? Then I'd be less offended at PC turning Jaya's badass heroine into some Andaaz-era bimbo.

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
