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

There has recently been a director's cut of Sholay shown on the asian u.k. satellite channel 'Zee TV', this has not been released up till now on cinemas. It contains the original ending director Ramesh Sippy intended that shows GabarSingh being killed at the hands of Thakur, instead of just being arrested by police. The film ran into problems with Indian Censors who claimed their rules about people taking the law into their own hands and not being punished for it was not permitted and may corrupt naive viewers; for this reason the ending of the film had to be re-shot for a 'U' Rating. Other unrated footage includes a more graphic footage of the fight between Gabar and Thakur in the film's ending, the subsequent pre-torture footage of a young village boy (showing Gabar's ruthlessness), Veeru dragging a bandit with a neck-noose galluping on horse- back, Ramlal fitting metal-spiked studs on Thakur's shoes, a village person on fire during a raid by Gabar.

Can't find a single flaw in the movie. Probably one of the best ever made in Hindi. The camera work is flawless and grips you. The acting is inspired. The music is memorable. One of the movies you remember for life.
