35 years on, the 'Sholay' fire still burns

Jul 23, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: India Talkies

It drew its inspiration from multiple Hollywood movies but went on to become the quintessential Indian film, perfectly balancing drama and tragedy, romance and violence, comedy and action.

this was a movie ahead of its time. Imagine people of 1975 seeing a 1940 movie - they would not have. But Sholay is still seen in 2010. A good story, great dialouges, great music, good technology. This is a land mark movie indeed.

No doubt: Amitabh is the only true shahenshah of bollywood and probably, the greatest superstar that ever graced hindicinema screen....

But as far as "Sholay" is concerned, It is an "Outright" Dharmendra Film. Amitabh Plays second billing here...

Compared to both in Ram-Balram, Where their roles where shared equally, Thanks to the briliance of "Goldie", Dharmendra had a "Bigger" Role than Amitabh in Sholay...Some people might have preferred Amitabh's "Acting" Performance, but you see, Dharam is Arguably the "Star" Of the film, Just as the Film's posters, Star Listings as well as Detailed insights in the film suggests..

But one thing is sure, Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra are arguably, two of Hindicinema's "Greatest" actors of all time!!!!..

wrong! the only greatest actor of all time ever born is Amitabh, no one else can match his achievments Dharmendra is a good actor but Bachan is thousands of step higher than all Bollywood actors. As for Sholay, no other movie can get even close to it let alone making a remake. Sharukh made a remake of Don, completely made himself a laughing stork....what an idiot!

Really??????....They "Laughed" becos the audiences were completely 'awed' by his "Splendid" Performance and who would ever forget the blend of "Uniqueness" he introduced into the Climax of this so-called remake, "Making sure the Villainic Don triumphs over the Protagonistic Don" Compared to the Original which happened the other way round.. Needless to say, Don (2006) was one of the biggest hits of the year just like the original in 1978 and also SRK got a Filmfare nomination for Best Actor, just as Big B also..The only difference was that the Phenomenon, Amitabh Bachchan won the "Award" at the time (as obviously, it was the only applicable one to pick from at the time)...So sir, i dont gey your point....

.....But you see I have to agree with you that SRK is an "IDIOT" since he preaches: I=I. D=D0. I=IT. O=ON MY OWN. T=TERMS..

SRK....What a "SUPERSTAR"!!!!..For now, King Khan Rules!!!(FACT..)

Without Dharamji,Sholay wouldnt be the great film that it is,no matter how many times Amitabh dies,how many dialogues Amjad Khan is given,or how many more limbs of Sanjeev Kumar are chopped off.

Hahahahaha !!!

Fudhi dream on Dharam urf Dilaawar is nothing compared to AB and Gabbar in Sholay !!!

Lol Sholay would be gone in the wind if AB and Gabbar weren't in it !!!
Lol Dilaawar can't act he needs to be with AB and others to make any movie work !!!

Lol funniest post ever that Dharam was the one who made Sholay hit !!!

Fudhi stop blowing hot air out your arse !!!

Dharam never was ,is or ever will be considered as an actor !!!
The whole movie fraternity never acknowledged him !! Did he ever get an award ??? Lol !!
