This review is from: Sholay [DVD] [NTSC] (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.
