Sholay Rocks!

I guess this scene would have been one of the most acted scenes in India.
The dialog delivery is nothing short of brilliance. The actors execute their parts to perfection.

And in this one...Dharmendra totally rocked!

And this is hilarious!

Interesting trivia from the book Sholay: the making of a classic.

Amjad Khan was not the first choice for the role of Gabbar.
The scriptwriters felt that if the movie flopped, it would be due to this character.
Most critics felt that the movie tickets would be available easily in the second week, but in one theater where it was playing, the current booking stall was closed for 75 weeks due to advance bookings!
The guy saying "poore pachaas hajaar" has just these three words in the entire film.

Lost count of the number of times I have seen this movie. The joy still remains every time I re-see it.
