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

Thakur's daughter-in-law Geeta Siddharth is cutting vegetables on the day Thakur is supposed to come back home. She is cutting okra. In the next shot, there is cabbage/cauliflower in her tray and then carrots appear on the swing where she is sitting. When she runs over to her husband and all the vegetables are thrown on the ground, there is no sign of okra or carrots among the fallen vegetables. See more »
This movie has everything, comedy, action, drama, romance, fun, emotions. Great performance by all the characters. They are remembered even today in 2004 after nearly 30 years of the film release. I heard that this movie is now re-released with remastered sound. wow ! cant' wait to fetch the DVD of this remastered version.
The most impressive role of Gabbar by Amjad Khan was portrayed extremely well.
Its also one the longest movie. Its quite normal for bollywood movies to be 3 hours long. But this one is even longer than this. But certainly ever minute of the movie is enjoyable.
This movie is my all time favorite.
