Directed and Produced by Prakash Mehra in 1973, ‘Zanjeer’ introduced a new image of Amitabh Bachchan as a person who becomes explosive and fights back when cornered, and was popularly termed as “The Angry Young Man”.

The character was portrayed by Amitabh with perfection and the movie pioneered the new trend of action cinema, providing audience with all the available masala they could ask for. This revenge drama earned Salim – Javed the Filmfare Award for the ‘Best Story’ and the movie collected over Rs. 5 Cr at the Box Office. It also earned the Filmfare nominations for various categories like Best Film, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Music and Best Male Playback Singer.

Interestingly, the lead role for this Bollywood flick was earlier offered to Late Mr. Raaj Kumar. After he refused to work with Prakash Mehra, Amitabh Bachchan was chosen and he created history! One blog is not enough to talk about the legend of Bollywood, so stay tuned for more info. on Big B!
