Format: DVD
First released in 1975, this film was so sucessful that it ran in Mumbai cinemas for around five years. The film revolves around two rouges; Veeru (dharmendra) and Jai (bachan) who are recrutied to capture a wanted bandit for a vengeful thakur. the friendship of these two are put through the tests as various circumstances arise in their adventure.
The film was shot by hollywood action and camera crew, making the scenes shot spectacular- even rivalling some of the work done today which is quite an achievement since it was shot over 25 years ago.The film has won global apraise for it's rememberable dialogues and acting, and with every shot cast, it is no wonder it has been voted best bollywood film of all time ('100 years of bollywood 2003') and rightly so.

Two versions of Sholay are available to date. Sholay remastered is the one to get in my opinion.

The other is presented in 4.3 full screen with dodgy subtitles throughout and no translation on the songs!

Remastered is in 16.9 widescreen as intended with better translations, subtitles on the songs though there are still errors throughout, some of them laughable. Remastered is also better picture quality but not perfect. The film absolutely deserves a full restoration and more accurate translation but remastered is the best version right now.

Film wise - it's a classic. An epic musical/western romance - full on entertainment for the duration. Great fun, slightly crazy full of energy and colour. Bollywood at it's best. Lives up to it's legend. A must see.

It was good. Maybe because I watched it only now for the first time, I didn't find it great. Some of the fight scenes were too choreographed. I found it odd that a man with no arms was able to beat someone up without much fightback!

One of those rare films that has a bit of everything - action, romance, comedy, music, style - and does it well. An epic at 3hrs + but is totally engaging all the way.

Essentially it's a western, complete with classic revenge plot and rugged setting (it was filmed in rural Bangalore). Clearly influenced by westerns, there are even moments that have borrowed directly from Sergio Leone (especially Once Upon A Time In The West) yet there is so much originality and spirit to 'Sholay" it doesn't matter. Plus it's hard to imagine Charles Bronson and Jason Robards singing an exuberant song together about friendship!

Strange to compare it to films such as 'The Sound of Music' (especially with it's moments of tragic violence) but it is on that level of classic all round films that require repeated viewing. Classic cinema.

*There are two versions available on DVD - one presented in 4.3 format which has no subtitles on the songs and badly translated subtitles throughout!

The other is titled Sholay : remastered which is the better of the two. It has song subtitles (thought the translation is still rather bad on occasions, plus the film is presented in 16.9 widescreen as intended. Sholay remastered is a slightly cleaner copy as well but still not perfect. The film really does deserve a better restoration and version than is available to date.
