Nothing has come close the classic. It is one of the best movies ever made. I would put it on par with classics like BenHur (another classic) and Lawrence of Arabia.

It created a world record when it was screened at Minerva for 7 years continuously. Despite this movie, the Minerva cinema was a 3rd rate theatre.

you could have mentioned Once upon a time in the West (a sergio leone classic) along with Ben Hur & Lawrence of Arabia and removed sholay and sholay ripped off OUATIW big time, apart from 7 samurais. Javend akhtar were the biggest copy cats like Anu Malik of writing. Even zanjeer was copied from death comes on a horse.
only SRK films are real, not fake copies like sholay. he took ramayana and turned into pure gold like K3G. yes he was the raam.
swades, CDI, OSO, MNIK, the list is so long. for amitabh these 4 films could have been his retirement fund.

Confusing Review.

Be more objective and not subjective in your reviews Mr Sen. Make a draft in your mind before writing and think it over before just writing what you feel. You can write good reviews, but of late you have become casual in your approach towards writing. Can you please tell me the five stars are for the movie or the three D version, because if its for the movie everyone knows that and you were supposed to review the three D version.

it seems the only good movie made in bollywood is sholay.
becoz they r not talking about any other movie other than sholay.but the fact is sholay itself is a crapmovie with untolerable overacting performances by amitabh bachan, dharmendra,hemamalini,sanjeev kumar and amjan khan.

Your first line is absolutely correct.

The only complete film ever made in the hindi film industry is indeed sholay.

Can u name any other film where every character is well defined - right to Samba who has just one dialogue in the film.

The film has romance, comedy, action, dialogues, social message, and what not?

It is the biggest film of nearly everyone associated with it.

The Sholay theme music is also just too good.
