Sholay (1975) Indian Film Review

Sholay (1975) is an Indian adventure Hindi language film written by Salim-Javed and directed by Ramesh Sippy and produced by his father G.P. Sippy in 1975. The film is about two criminals Veeru and Jai hired by a retired police officer to capture the ruthless dacoit Gabbar Singh. The film is starred by Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjeev Kumar, Hema Malini, Jaya Bhaduri, Amjad Khan and some others. Story: The film story is about two criminals hired by a police officer to capture a ruthless dacoit who has spoiled his family. This film story is influenced by many Indian and western film making styles. For example; there is a train robbery scene in this film. This idea has been taken influenced by an Indian film. The scholars have noted several themes in the film, for example; glorification of violence, conformation to feudal ethos, debate between social order and mobilized usurpers, homo social bonding and the film’s role as a national allegory. Plot: A retired police officer Thakur Baldev Singh summons a pair of small time thieves that he had once arrested, in the small village of Ramgarh. Thakur thinks that the duo, Veeru and Jai would be the ideal persons to help him to capture Gabbar Singh a dacoit wanted by the authorities for a fifty thousand rupees reward. Thakur tells them to surrender Gabbar to him, alive, for an additional twenty thousand rupees reward. Soon afterwards, Gabbar and his goons attack Ramgarh during the festival Holi. In a tough battle, Veeru and Jai are cornered. Although, Thakur has a gun within his reach, but does not help them. Veeru and Jai fight back and the dacoits flee. The two are very upset at Thakur’s inaction and consider leaving the village. Thakur explains that Gabbar Singh has killed his family members and cut off both of his arms. At last Jai and Veeru knew the reality. They returned back the money to Thakur and promised to help him without money. Living in Ramgarh, Veeru is attracted to Basanti, a feisty, talkative young woman who makes her living by driving a horse-cart. Jai is attracted to Radha, Thakur’s widowed daughter-in-law. Finally, Veeru and Basanti are captured by the dacoits head, Gabbar Singh. But Jai attacks the gang and the three are able to flee Gabbar’s hideout with dacoits in pursuit. Fighting from behind a rock, jai forced Veeru Basanti to leave out. He only will fight against them. But he is wounded suddenly. Finally, he is died. Veeru attacks Gabbar’s den and catches the dacoit. Veeru nearly heats Gabbar to death when Thakur appears to him. Veeru hands over him to Thakur. Thakur uses his spike-soled shoes to severly injure Gabbar and destroy his hands. Gabbar is died severely. Veeru leaves Ramgarh and finds out Basanti waiting for him on the train. Radha left alone again. Cinematography: Dwarka Divecha is the cinematographer of the film. It is a 1970s film. At that time, it was one of the best and high grossing films in India. Cinematography, acting and dialogue are the main attention for the audiences in this film. The main characteristics of cinematography are; shot divisions, mise-en-scene and lighting. Shots: In this film there are shot variations. Various kinds of shots have been taken. For example; close shot, medium shot, wide and long shots. Mise-en-scene: The arrangement and set up of scenery and prps of a film is called mise-en-scene. Set design and props arrangement are very natural in this film. For example; a road had been built in the side of the rocky terrain of Ramgarh. Lighting: Natural light has been used mostly in this film. But sometimes, artificial light has been used also. But specially natural or sun light is the prime thing for lighting source. Acting: At that time, the famous actors and actress had acted in this film. They were very popular for their performance to the audiences for India and World Wide. Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Jaya Bhaduri, Sanjeev Kumar, Amjad Khan and others have acted in this film. Specially, their acting and the film scenery is like the cinema named ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (1966)’. Before in melodrama film, female was the main character. But for the first time in India, male character is in the leading role in this film. Sound and Music: Music is composed by R.D. Burman. There are songs also in this film. Actually song is one of the main characteristics of modern cinemas in India. In the west or the East, the use of song in film is very rear. But in our subcontinent song is very popular. It is also our cultural fact. In this film the songs are not more attractive than the dialogues to the audiences. Background music is made in accordance with the scenery and mise-en-scene. Editing: The film is edited by M.S Shinde. Actually, he was one of the best film editors in India at that time. He edited over 100 films. The real talk is that the film is edited in such a style that the film’s editing style seems like the editing style of the film named ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (1966). The background scenery and specially the background sound are like the style of that film. actually, Sholay’s editing style is influenced by some western films.
