Sholay means embers in Hindi. In this particular movie, a Police Officer, who's family was killed by a bandit named Gabbar Singh, decides to fight fire with fire and recruits two convicts, Jai and Veeru to capture Gabbar. He approaches them in jail, puts the proposal in front of them, and they agree to bring in Gabbar Singh alive - for a hefty price. After their discharge from jail, they travel by train to the village where the Police Officer lives - now with only his widowed daughter-in-law. The three band together to fight one of the most elusive and dreaded bandits of all time. Will the two ex-cons be able to bring Gabbar alive to the Police Officer? Written by
Sholay is the best film there will ever be in Bollywood. This film was a big hit everywhere. The film released in 1975 and it lasted for 5 years in cinemas in India. Amitabh Bachchan was fantastic as always! Dharmendra was funny and excellent. Hema Malini was very good and played her character very well. Amjad Khan was brilliant! This is the film where he got famous. He played his character extremely well.
The film has two endings. The Indian Board of Film Censors rejected the first ending and so Ramesh Sippy had to come up with another ending. The first ending was not shown in cinemas but people the first ending on B4U. I can see why the first ending was rejected because it may have given people a bad influence (i.e that taking the law into your own hands was correct.)
Even though the film released 26 years ago, the movie is still the best. The songs were excellent aswell. Especially the song "Mehbooba Mehbooba". That song was a big hit aswell. If you have not seen this film you have got to see it and see what all the fuss is about! Overall the film deserves a 10/10.
