Continuity 

When Basanthi is being chased by bandits, while crossing the wooden bridge she does a small stunt, she moves the horse cart and breaks down the bridge and moves ahead, so the bandits are forced to take a detour to catch her. Veeru follows them and also find the bridge broken and take a detour. Both Basanti and Veeru are caught by the bandits and Jai rescues them later. While returning after being saved by Jai from Gabbar's den, Veeru, Basanti and Jai are seen crossing the same bridge which is fully intact.
Sanjeev Kumar (Thakur) upon reaching home and finding his family members killed on lying on floor, he grabs the white cloth to uncover and see his dead grandson. He releases the cloth and the cloth flies away in wind. In the very next scene as he hurries towards the horse, the grandson's body is seen nicely wrapped with the white cloth.
Upon seeing his family members killed, as he hurries towards the horse, the horse in which he mounts on is black in color and has a white patch at its hoof, whereas the horse which his stunt man rides in the next scene is brown in color, and has no white patch at its hoof.
When Basanti goes to the temple, she was on foot. Veeru asks whether her mare ran away with cart. After Worshipping Lord Shiva, right before the song "Koi haseena", she rides her cart.
In the song "Yeh Dosti", there's a moment when the side attachment of the bike lifts after a bouncing off a small heap. Veeru is sitting on the side attachment, while Jai is riding the bike. In the next scene, shot from the behind, there's no one sitting there. Only Jai's stuntman is riding the bike.
When Gabbhar shoots his three henchmen, all three are facing him. Yet, when they're lying dead, one has a wound on the back of his neck and one has a wound on his mid-back.

Jai and Veeru are fighting the last encounter with the bandits. Jai is left alone to fight the bandits and he is using both the hands for holding the guns and pistols, keeps firing from them regularly. Later Veeru returns and holds Jai in his arms, during that period you can see Jai's both palms in open position, there are many shots and for many minutes that shows his open palm, but at the end Veeru is seen picking up the "Magic" coin from one of Jai's now closed fist.

Crew or equipment visible 

In the song "Koi Haseena" when Veeru does wheeling on his cycle, we see a man's hand and head while holding front wheel.

Errors in geography 

The movie supposedly takes place somewhere in north India. In the first song, "Ye Dosti...." a roadside banner is seen written in Kannada, which is followed only in Karnataka in south India.

Revealing mistakes 

Thakur's home does not have electricity, but the village has an overhead tank which needs electricity to fill the tank. Thakur being the richest person in the village does not have electricity, so how does the village have an overhead tank?

Spoilers

Revealing mistakes 

During the fight scene at the end, Sanjeev Kumar's hand is seen slipping out from under his shirt shortly before his character, Thakur, smothers Gabbar's hand with his foot. Thakur is supposed to be armless.
