Zinda (2006): All you need to know about this Sanjay Dutt Bollywood film

by Ratan Srivastava

Sanjay Dutt, John Abraham, Lara Dutta, and Celina Jaitly appear in Zinda, a 2006 Indian Hindi-language neo-noir action drama movie. Sanjay Gupta directed the movie, and he really co-wrote it along with Suresh Nair.

The movie’s subject music was created by Vishal-Shekhar, and backing music was composed by Sanjoy Chowdhury. On January 13, 2006, it was launched in India. Zinda was discovered to be an unofficial replica of the South Korean classic Oldboy. Oldboy’s producers, Show East, who had originally sold the remake rights to DreamWorks in 2004, reportedly voiced legal worries, but no court case was pursued because the company had closed down.

Critics gave the picture mixed reviews, however, John Abraham as well as Sanjay Dutt being picked out for appreciation.

The movie was acclaimed by Bollywood Mantra, who said, “Sanjay Gupta’s latest film, Zinda, seems to be his darkest yet. It’s a hard-hitting film shot in Bangkok that presents a narrative that’s never been portrayed on Indian screens previously. But who better than Sanjay Dutt is cast in the starring character to bring Sanjay Gupta’s vision to life. It was one of Dutt’s most difficult parts to date, and it’ll stay with you even after you’ve seen it “’s Narbir Gosal awarded the movie a 7.5/10, complimenting Sanjay Dutt and John Abraham’s efforts but criticising its reality that most of the language and narrative was lifted in Oldboy. gave the film a 6/10 rating, stating, “Technically and stylistically, Zinda is faultless,” and praising Dutt’s performance as “perhaps the peak of his career.”

“The film belongs to Sanjay Dutt… If the adventure-action genre in Hindi cinema needed a wake-up call, this is it,” said Subhash K Jha.

Representatives from Show East, the production company of Oldboy, voiced worry over Zinda’s resemblance to their movie during a press conference in November 2005 and claimed they were looking into it. They mentioned that they didn’t have the finished product of Zinda to evaluate Oldboy to at the moment. They indicated that they would call their attorneys if they discovered a “significant resemblance between the two [films].”
