Before going down kindly be informed that this is not a review. It's a feeling expressed by a fan. I am in no capacity to review this masterpiece.
The movie itself is a brand and still carries the same charm when it was released. The movie has lots of stories and trivia behind it such as casting of Amjad Khan in place of Danny. Slow pace of the movie in the initial week of it's release and so on and I think every movie buff must have read, heard or read about it.
The movie is known for the best execution of a predictable plot with a seasoning of comedy and emotion. All most all the characters of the movie is a legend in fact the side characters are also immortal now be it 'Mausi', 'Angrezo ke zamane ke jailer', 'Soorma Bhopali', 'Kalia'or 'Sambha'.
Probably this is the only movie who might have given birth to lots of parodies and those parodies are still in making.
The mesmerising songs which suits every occasion such as beautiful 'Holi' song, the song representing the eternal bond of friendship or to please your love interest, and yes the dialogues which we all would have copied in all the funnier situations like 'Itna sannata kyun hai bhai', 'kitne aadmi the' and so on
With immortal characters and dialogues Sholay is a classic which can't be created and in fact will never be created.

Sholay means "embers" in Hindi. In this film, a police officer whose family was filled by a bandit named Gabbar Singh decides to fight fire with fire and requires two convicts, Jai and Veeru, to capture Gabbar. He approaches them in jail and puts the proposal in front of them, and they agree to bring in Gabbar Singh alive--for a hefty price. After their discharge from jail, they travel by train to the village where the police officer lives with his widowed daughter-in-law. The three band together to fight one of the most elusive and dreaded bandits of all time. Will the two ex-cons be able to bring Gabbar alive to the police officer?
