Critic Reviews for Sholay
The plot is formulaic, the camerawork is slapdash, the male bonding borders on camp.
The performances are impressive, especially that of Khan, who steals every scene he is in from his more famous co-stars.
Over the years, Sholay has become more than just a movie. It's been celebrated, analysed, formed the subject of dissertations in film and cultural studies.
Though it may seem uneven... parts of it are excellent.
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.
