Many of today's generation movie lovers have not witnessed the EPIC Saga 'Sholay' which was released in Big Screen in 1975. In fact Sholay went onto become the biggest film of Indian Cinema and run in many theaters for months and years. It broke Silver Jublee, Golden Jubilee and Platinum Jubliee records one after another.
Sholay took slow start at box office for two weeks, but after that because of positive word of mouth there is just no stopping for the film. Critics penned the film badly. Filmfare awards didn't gave a single award to the film then. Dharmendra never got any award for Sholay for famous 'Veeru' character. In fact no one got any awards be it Amitabh Bachchan 'Jai', Amjad Khan 'Gabbar', Sanjeev Kumar 'Thakur', Hema Malini 'Basanti', Jaya Bachchan 'Radha' and many more famous characters. But finally justice was done and deservingly Sholay got 'Film of the Century' and 'Film of the Millennium' award in many prestigious award function much later on.
Coming to Sholay 3D, it will be a great experience for those who have never watched the movie and specially for those who have never experienced it on big screen. In fact those who have watched the films numerous times and in theaters also, can re-visit it as it is much enhanced now with conversion to 3D and sound by Dolby Atmos.
Sholay is no doubt the 'Greatest Story Ever Told' in Indian Cinema. It is a film about friendship, love, family, revenge, songs and above all unparalleled action sequences. Go watch it theater nearby on 3rd January, 2014 and do yourself a favour.
