Sholay – An Indian Movie Pride

Sholay is one of the greatest Bollywood movies of all time. Though inspired by Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai; Sholay brings to screen a similar theme with all the bollywood ingredients including songs, dance and action.

Sholay brought to Bollywood a totally new genre of action, what Magnificent Seven had bought to Hollywood.

A set of very capable but misfits and outlaws uniting to fight a greater evil and in the event embracing heroism and Martyrdom.

Sholay also brought to the Indian screen a negative character that is still considered as one of the greatest villain roles in the Indian film industry and was played by the late Amjad Khan.

If you were to have one Bollywood Movie, I would say you have this.
