"Kitne Aadmi Thei", every Indian film fan knows this dialog by heart. Sholay was released in 1975, also the year I was born in, coincidence, perhaps. The film became the longest running Indian film in the theaters, a record that... Full review

All time Indian Cinema biggest hit!!! Sholay became a milestone in Indian cinema with an all-star cast, good dialogue, stylish cinematography and a soundtrack that's still enjoyable today. The story is very enjoyable though the ending is not the typical Bollywood all happy ending. Definitely worth watching!!!

Ramgopal Varma, the maverick filmmaker, has the courage to remake Sholay , a film that continues to be one of the favourite entertainers across the globe.....The romantic track, involving Ajay-Nisha Kothari, is a yawn.....Amit Roy's cinematography is outstanding.....The Holi track is interesting as well, more for the picturization, not as much for the tune..... ...

Heard that Ramesh Sippy is not happy with your idea of remaking Sholay. That beauty comes because of the essense in the story. But my liking has nothing to do with how the film did at the box office. Mohit is apt for this role now. ... Full Review

Sholay' is easily one of the most brilliantly crafted movies.
