Film Series: Sholay

1975. India. Dir: Ramesh Sippy. With Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra. 204 min.


A retired police chief enlists the help of two bandits to defeat a murderous crime lord, unleashing a campy current of action, melodrama, and – of course – musical numbers. At first considered a flop, Sholay has gained so much of a following that it may now be the highest grossing Hindi-language film of all time.
