The only reason this movie ended up with more as 1 star is because some hardcore nationalist bollywood lovers didn't write honest reviews. Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against remakes nor bollywood, but this is just uninspired crap.... Full review

... I totally agree with the previous comments, how can someone copy shameless a good movie AND took out the best scenes and best story elements? Oldboy is definitely one of the best movies (that's why it's good story copied... Full review
It's not something new for bollywood to copy foreign movie's script. I guess they (actors, director and creative staff members...) all gather around and watch the movie to be copied so that there will be no confusion what they are... Full review
Bollywood should NEVER try to be as ambitious to tackle films like Oldboy. Indian morality eventually gets in the way. Such attempts are cringeworthy. Do not bother watching Zinda unless you like talentless 'eye candy' type films. Watch the original... Full review
Product of a questionably loose Indian Copyright laws

Many have said this before, but I'm afraid I have to repeat the opinion on the account that a surprising many have decided that Zinda is worth of anything more than 1 star in IMDb. Zinda is a unscrupulous photocopy... Full review

I can't believe they got the rights to crucify OLDBOY with this trash!!! I mean why bother... They have totally destroyed a cult movie of very high standard. The acting in this"effort" is shabby, the cinematography is amateur, the dialogue... Full review
OK, first off, this movie should be renamed to MURDA (dead).Seeing this film's previews earlier on, and with Sanjay Dutt's comments that he plays a very complicated character, it had everything going for it until it suddenly became clear that... Full review

Most people who write reviews do so immediately after having felt the experience of the matter they are reviewing. I gave myself 48 hours before I decided to make what I wanted of about Zinda.To start with, Zinda is a... Full review

all this makes 'Zinda' a visually appealing movie.....although unoriginal, story and a noteworthy acting performance by its frontman Sanjay Dutt .....John Abraham looks suave and dandy....Sanjay Dutt deserves all praise for a performance that shows his range as an actor.....The camera angles, the tone of the film, the slick editing, fade-to-black shots -.... ...

Shibani does well wonderfully once again....there is a pleasant shift in ' Maula ' where he turns absolutely sober for a song about pain and loneliness.....there is something intriguing about the setting of the movie.....A theme song that may appear in the background score of the movie, this 'sufi' number is sung brilliantly by Krishna.....Gupta has been known for his marvelous shot-taking;.... ... Full Review

On the whole, Zinda is an interesting story told in a stylish format.....The violent sequences, for instance, are highly gruesome....The dry, dark and gruesome film....Like Gupta's last effort [ Musafir ], Zinda is provocative and graphic....Mahesh Manjrekar is routine..... ... Full Review
