It was indeed a masala film, with all ingredients in the right proportion. I'd like to point out some salient points that are not discussed enough.

1. Characterisation - Jai's nature is of a calm demeanour . Hardly gets angry. And he has this habit of repartee. Can be seen throughout. His nature doesnt change. Veeru is always boisterous and impulsive. Can be seen in the first train scene, when his mood changes from angry to happy to angry in seconds. Even when he fights, he seems happy to fight. The fight after the holi song, at the end Veeru is happy to have won the fight, suddenly he notices Thakur and get angry.

2. The action sequences are superb. The train scene is still one of the best action scenes ever picturised in Indian cinema.

3. Background music is an important part of films. This film has got superb background score, which adds to the experience.

I have seen this movie multiple times. But i wish i could see it once in a theatre.

Almost everything was perfect. Amjad Khan became immortal because of Sholay. Even his assistants were well chosen.

The story itself was very good. Castings were superb. The cinematography was extremely nice and beautiful. Overall the acting was unquestionable !! All these made the Sholay special !! I think each will like it even during the years to come, even by the generation after next. Thanks.

No doubt it was a block buster of the 20th century ... But I found some points which U 've to consider and evaluate.....

Ramgarh mein Bijli thi ... ??? Kahin dekha tha bijli ka khmba ... Toh woh Paani ka taanki jis par Veeru ne chadh kar suicide karne ki kosis kiya tha woh paani ka taanki kya kar raha tha udhar ???

Jai aur Veeru Motor Bike par jo Gaana kiya tha "Ye Dosti " un logon ne Bike ke liye petrol kahaan se liya itne durr ke gaaon mein....

Gabbar singh akele kaise jail toda kuchh toh hint zaroori tha ... aapko kabhi ye sawaal nahi sujha ???

Still it was the greatest of all movies of 20th century...for its overall star cast, story, music, dialogue,and script
