Movie Info

In the village of Ramgarh, retired police chief Thakur Baldev Singh (Sanjeev Kumar) plots to bring down the notorious bandit Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan) and enlists the help of two lesser criminals, Jai (Amitabh Bachchan) and Veeru (Dharmendra). When Gabbar attacks the village, however, Jai and Veeru wonder why Thakur does nothing to help them. They soon learn that he has no arms, and that Gabbar was the one who cut them off. Enraged by this, they redouble their efforts to help.

    One of the greatest and unforgetable Bollywood Classics. R.I.P Amjad Uncle. <center>Jab bache rote hain to maa kehti he soja warna Gabbar Singh ajayega. <br> saab mene aap ka namak khaya he Ab Gholi Kha </br></center> TRIVIA:: This film was directly inspired by the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone, by Akira Kurosawa's Shichinin no samurai, Bandidos (1967) among others. Some critics at the time even began calling it a curry western. Amitabh Bachchan was almost killed at the end of the movie when a stray bullet from 'Dharmendra' missed him by inches.

    This film is long. I think that if it would have been shorter I would have enjoyied it more.

    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.

    Old Indian classic, well-built, well directed and well acted by everyone in this movie. It's a real classic. I just love Late Amjad Khan. I don't think anyone could have acted better than him.
