Sholay 40th Anniversary


One of the greatest movies ever made is celebrating its 40th anniversary today. Sholay is counted as one of top films on both Bollywood and mainstream movie lists. The story is one that has been told before (Seven Samurai, Magnificent Seven), but this was something different. The raw, brooding and even frightening (I was terrified of Gabbar!) characters are not what anyone expects from a Bollywood film. The chemistry between the cast is off the charts. The fun parts are really fun and the serious parts are so intense. If you have not seen Sholay I highly, highly suggest you stop what you are doing and watch it. Now.
