Critic Reviews for Sholay
Sholay delivers the goods, all right. It has, quite literally, everything -- action, adventure, romance, drama, comedy (very broad), musical numbers -- all superbly directed by young Ramesh Sippy.
Sholay is a grand, maximalist revel. It's the kind of movie that, while it may pass into the status of so many older movies more talked about than seen, it became that thing by being great.
You can divide Hindi cinema into two eras, pre-and-post Sholay. It is a landmark. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
The plot is formulaic, the camerawork is slapdash, the male bonding borders on camp.
It's a movie that you can watch again and again, and hardcore Bollywood fans do. But even if you just watch Sholay once, you won't be disappointed.
Audience Reviews for Sholay
One of the greatest and unforgetable Bollywood Classics. R.I.P Amjad Uncle.
saab mene aap ka namak khaya he Ab Gholi Kha
My first Bollywood film. It's pretty badass, a little indulgent at 3+ hours, but that's par for the course with these films. A curry western with heavy American influences has a little bit of everything. Suspense, Slapstick, Romance, Singing and Violent Bloodshed India's first 70mm film.
This film is long. I think that if it would have been shorter I would have enjoyied it more.
