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.February 17, 2021 | Full Review…
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.April 18, 2016 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
A massively enjoyable movie, boasting a who's who of Indian legends.February 9, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for Sholay
Dec 22, 2009One 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.Wahida K Super Reviewer
Jun 30, 2008This film is long. I think that if it would have been shorter I would have enjoyied it more.Marion R Super Reviewer
Jun 18, 2007My 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.Ken S Super Reviewer
Jan 09, 2007Old 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.Muhammad O Super Reviewer
