Episode 54: Zanjeer (1973) - with Diptakirti Chaudhuri

Amitabh Bachchan's breakout film was Zanjeer (1973). The film not only proved to be the breakout vehicle for India's biggest superstar and cultural icon, but it also ushered in the Bachchan-Salim-Javed era and the trend of action dramas. Diptakirti Chaudhuri, a lifelong Hindi cinema enthusiast and the author of seven books on Hindi cinema, including one on Salim-Javed, joins me as we celebrate Zanjeer, which turns 50 this month. Join us!
