Baahubali

Raja mouli’s Indian bilingual epic historical fiction film

3.5/5 20

WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | AUGUST 2015


B

aahubali (Prabhas)starts with Shiva who worships Lord Shiva and falls in love with Avanthika (Tamannah)who has a task assigned. Once he impresses her, he takes her responsibility to save Devasena (Anushka) who has been in the hands of Bhallaladeva (Rana Daggubati). As soon as he lands in his kingdom, he comes to know about his association with Devasena and the rest of the movie is what happened in the past and how he rescued Devasena. Watch the movie to know the rest. The first half of the movie goes slow but interesting. The visuals and the graphics have been decent with Prabhas’s stunning screen presence. The movie gets interesting during the pre interval episodes and catches the needed momentum. Though the story line has been thin and straight, the narration has been decent which makes the film interesting all the way. The second half of the movie gets more interesting with the pace and the graphics have been good at quality. The war episodes have been shot well though some of them have been repeated and on the whole the second half has been well shot with huge episodes.

Baahubali Performance : Prabhas has delivered a terrific performance with Baahubali and his screen presence has been magical. Rana Daggubati has delivered a commanding and strenghty performance as Bhallaladeva and is the highlight of the movie. Satyaraj

has been surprising as Katappa and Ramya Krishna sizzled in her brief role. Anushka’s short and important role is the backbone of the film and Tamannah has been glamorous throughout. All the others have been decent. The story of the film is quite normal and thin. The screenplay and the narration have been decent with less dialogues throughout. The graphics have been good enough and the cinematography has been stunning. The action episodes have been shot well and the songs have been beautiful. The production values have been vast and Rajamouli succeeded in delivering the required output.

FINAL WORD: Baahubali is sure a worth watching film which has good content, action episodes and large technical values along with terrific performances from the leads. A worth watching film.

'' The story of the film is quite normal and thin. The screenplay and the narration have been decent with less dialogues throughout. The graphics have been good enough.

Mantra 2 is directed by S.V Suresh and is slated to be released on July 31st, 2015. The movie is the sequel of Mantra who was a huge box office hit in 2007. Charmy went on doing many movies after Mantra but was not so successful till Jyothi Lakshmi.

image, nothing else is there to boast about the film. The technicalities, the background score and performance by the great actors like Tanikella Bharani, almost everything is a let down.

Story Plot:

Watch Mantra 2 only if your love the unnecessary screams of Charmy Kaur. This flick has nothing new to offer and is a great disappointment to all the Mantra fans.

Mantra 2 should most probably have a story plot similar to the first part Mantra. The movie has Charmy playing the lead role and is said to be a suspense thriller. The first movie was very entertaining and thrilling with a top notch suspense elements and scary parts. Let’s see what Mantra 2 has to offer. he movie starts in the city of destiny, Vizag where Mantra (Charmee) has bad dreams. She moves to Hyderabad after getting a job as programmer in a software company. She then joins as a paying guest in the house of Rama Rao (Tanikella Bharani). Rama Rao and his wife have a big bunglow. Since Mantra is an orphan,the old couple and Mantra bond get along quickly. Mantra faces frequent murder attempts on her but escapes each of them. She seeks help of a police officer who is her friend long ago. In thhe starting of the film, you get all excited to watch the horror movie coming up, but it is a very below average fare with predictable story and thrills.

OVER STORY

BOLLYWOOD

Bajrangi Bhaijaan &

its Munni a hit at the Box Office I

t is a rarity these days, that stories with such cliché plots find their traces in the outside world too, Well, this just happened with Bajrangi Bhaijaan, when reports showed that a girl, deaf and mute, an Indian, was strangled in Pakistan. While she found help just like ‘Munni’, Bajrangi Bhaijaan garners more acclaim and runs robust at the Box Office.

H

The film, that stars Salman Bhai, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Harshaali Malhotra and Kareena Kapoor Khan in lead roles, has collected Rs 283.16 crore in 16 days of its release. While Bajrangi Bhaijaan inches towards 300cr, Baahubali hit theatres a week before Bajrangi Bhaijaan and has grossed a whopping Rs 215 crore. Bajrangi Bhaijaan has emerged as Salman Khan's biggest hit till date and it broke several box office records in India and abroad, becoming the fastest Hindi film to collect 1 billion in India. You may still be wondering in your head as you watch the Hanuman-worshipping Bajrangi (Salman Khan, his blue-stone bracelet replaced by the red-yellow ‘kaleva dhaga’), the simpleton with a large, loving heart. And the Pakistani Shahida a.k.a Munni (Harshali Malhotra), the little girl who’s lost her voice but not her ability to charm, romp through a film which has been unabashedly 26

constructed as a massy entertainer. It is also smartly aimed at the tear-ducts of those who sit on the fence on the matter of whether a performer’s real-life transgressions should affect the way we perceive his reel-life persona. First things first. Director Kabir Khan captures the attention of the viewers right from first shot of this character driven film. The impeccable camaraderie between him and his lead star Salman Khan was seen in their last blockbuster film EK THA TIGER. This time round, the camaraderie has grown by leaps and bounds, which can be seen in this film. As far as the performances are concerned, absolutely no prizes for guessing that the film belongs to the one and only 'Bhaijaan' Salman Khan, who makes no mistakes in delivering an outstanding performance in this film. His innocence is unmistakably charming. Harshaali, the debutante child actress wins accolades and garners public attention.

Kareena needs a mention for the support that she has displayed through her character. If it's a Salman Khan movie, then, songs and music become very crucial. BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN's music (Pritam Chakraborty) definitely works by all means, majorly because it has all the elements that are required of a typical 'Salman Khan film'.

When I was back to Mumbai, I got a call from the production house and my appointment was fixed with Madhur Bhandarkar. But by then, 3,500 girls had given auditions, so I thought I may not have a chance. Still, I decided to meet Madhur Bhandarkar. The meeting went very well. He told me he had found his Nandita Menon (her character in the film) five minutes into the meeting, and

started talking about the film. He asked me to go for a screen test and look test. After the screen test, he told my about my character. He was clear that all five girls in the film would play models.

Tell us about your character. I play an independent and confident South-Indian girl, who has a strong family background. She gets chosen for the calendar, and meets other four girls and forms a strong bond with them. The story of Calendar Girls starts after the calendar is shot, what happens to the lives of the five girls.

Who are the other four girls in the film? Satarupa Pyne plays a Bengali character called Paroma Ghosh, Kyra Dutt plays a Catholic character called Sharon Pinto, Ruhi Singh plays small-town girl called Mayuri Chouhan, Avani Modi plays a Muslim character, Nazneen Khalid.


We bonded well on screen and off. Even now that the shoot is over, we still meet for coffee and parties. We’ve made a group on Whatsapp. I was initially worried how we would all gel but it was super fun. On the sets, we were very mischievous. We were called the Calendar Girls School Girls! Madhur sir was like principal. He would actually tell us to calm down and maintain discipline!

They have shot in a bikini before, as two of them are models. So they were comfortable. They complimented me and made the whole environment relaxing. Thanks to them, I could pull if off. Madhur sir told me: ‘If it doesn’t look good on

'' I was very conscious and not confident at all. '

What was it like working with Madhur Bhandarkar? For a newcomer, it is a blessing to work with a National Award-winning director like Madhur Bhandarkar.

''I was initially worried how we would all gel but it was super fun.''

He has a unique dictionary of words like 'jalwa', 'aag hai', 'dard hai’... We started using these words! He’s very simple and down-to-earth. He’s a lot of fun too. Madhur Bhandarkar lets his actors be themselves. We actresses were very similar to the characters we play. That’s why we did not have to prepare much.

Which was your most difficult scene? It was difficult for me to shoot in a bikini. It wasn’t a big scene, it's basically a photo shoot. Yet, it was difficult. My mother told me to be confident, since this is my profession. I was very conscious and not confident at all. But the other girls made me comfortable. AUGUST 2015 | WWW.CINESPRINT.COM

Frankly, in my case, he did not have to do that because I had an edge over the other girls -- I had the experience of doing four films; I’m very confident in front of the camera. Plus, I knew the cinematographer and art director, as they were from the south. 38

After graduation, I worked for Kingfisher Airlines. My friend and I were vacationing in Chandigarh. My friend was going for an interview and she asked me to come. We gave the interview and both got selected. I was posted in Bangalore. I started my modeling career because of this job. I met a model coordinator in a flight, and she suggested that I start modeling. So I did modeling in my free time -- I did 80-90 commercials and print ads. After that, I was transferred to Mumbai and my life changed.

What was your parents reaction to your career choices? They have always been supportive. My parents gave me freedom to decide what we wanted to do.

How did you get your first acting offer? I was always interested in acting. I have grown up watching Salman Khan films; I’m a big fan. I would envy his co-stars. One of my advertisement hoardings was seen by a Tamil production company. They called me for narration and I got my first break into films without any audition! It was a big film called Alex Pandian in 2013, starring Suriya’s brother Karthi and Anushka Shetty. Karthi is very energetic and positives. He is fun and yet, very reserved. He speaks only when it is required. He is very professional. Alex Pandian was made by his production house, so he was always there to help. If I


needed anything, I could directly go to Karthi. You have worked with superstar Mammootty as well. In 2014, I did Praise The Lord with him. Working was Mammootty was such an amazing experience. The superstars down south are very down-to-earth. Initially, I was nervous but when I went on the sets, it was so much fun. We would listen to songs and do masti. Mammootty is very humble. He speaks to his fans, clicks pictures with them‌ He speaks to everyone on the sets and treats them nicely. If he got different food from the rest of the unit, he would order for me as well. I was treated equally. I stayed in the same hotel as him also. Mammootty is very health conscious, so he only has specific juices. He only has oats and rotis in his meals.

Shahrukh Khan

on't blame us for writing that Shahrukh Khan is a bigger superstar than Slaman Khan. It's the fans who have proved this by giving Fan teaser many more views than Salman's Sultan's teaser. Shahrukh Khan's Fan teaser released just few days back and it has already surpassed Salman Khan's Sultan teaser, which got released two weeks back. Shahrukh Khan's Fan teaser have got around 2,636,081 views on Youtube, while Salman Khan's Sultan has got around 1,310,117 views. Both Fan and Sultan are produced by Yash Raj Films. But clearly Shahrukh Khan's film has created more interest among the viewers than Salman Khan's film.

It may be recalled that Mahesh Babu was referred as Kannayya by his mother played by Lakshmi in Murari movie and incidentally both the film and the character of Mahesh gave an everlasting impact on the audience. So it seems the makers of Mahesh’s new film have taken a cue from that popular role and are considering Kannayya as their working title, says an inside source. Directed by Koratala Shiva of Mirchi fame, the shooting of the film will commence from the first week of September.

Starting the next year with Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Fitoor’ opposite Aditya Roy Kapoor and Kabir Khan’s ‘Phantom’ opposite Saif Ali Khan, she moves to Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’ with rumoured beau Ranbir Kapoor.


What’s up this year Katrina? I ’m working on three films simultaneously! It’s kind of frustrating actually, because people think you’ve been away for a while – people think you’re taking it easy, but actually, you’re working harder than ever before. I hope all three release this year – Phantom, Jagga Jasoos and Fitoor (for which I have coloured my hair!

Oh! So you had to don a new hair colour? It’s not like I needed convincing to colour my hair. I was like really excited. When they coloured it and it was dry and I was like ‘WOW, I love it, it’s so fun!’ Now after 4 months I’m kind of like… ‘aah, I wouldn’t mind my hair black again!’ So, I think it’s fun to do.

What is that one quality everyone must have in a relationship? Besides being trustworthy, which is important. I don’t know if it’s a quality, but I think that every guy AND a girl in a relationship should make it a point that they try and make every day with that person, special. I think everyone has gotten too used to the fact that you know, you’re supposed to take each other for granted. And because we’re supposed to take each other for granted it means that you know this is just life going on and you know next year will be special, next

How was it working with Kabir Khan, your long time friend? I like Kabir’s method of working. His script sense is great due to which the content has turned out to be very exciting. Also, the way he calls the shots and the entire filming process is quite calm with some great fun. The way he directs is totally unique.

What is that one thing that made you sign ‘Jagga Jasoos’? Anurag’s vision as a director is very different. He sees things from different angles. Moreover, after seeing his earlier films, most notably ‘Barfi!’, I wanted to see a different 66

WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | AUGUST 2015

side of me too. I wanted to do something on the other side which is a little more quirky. Thankfully, Anurag comes with a very different kind of lens and from that, the world and his actors look totally different.

How do you choose films? What I look for is whether there is some sense of believability to the character I am playing and if the script as a whole does have its merits. I don’t pick any and every film because I guess it would be very arrogant for an actor to do a film which is not right for you and you still do it due to any other reason. You have to look at everything in totality and only then give a nod of approval. Seems like 2015 is going to be an year with 3 projects lining up to release. Talks and rumours about Katrina’s and Ranbir’s marriage gripped the Industry, with the latest buzz comment of Kareena Kapoor khan. Well, we love the couple for all good reasons, Go ahead girl, we say.

To his fans, it is a big question that when he will get married. DHow was it working for Phantom? I am very happy that Kabir approached me for this role. He has made one of the biggest hits of Indian cinema (Ek Tha Tiger), and he could have cast anyone in the film, but he chose me… which is a big thing for me. I have a very unusual role in Phantom, so I am quite happy. I want to do some nice, different films and I am enjoying my life.

How’s Phantom with Katrina Kaif progressing?

As a child, I enjoyed reading Phantom comics. I haven’t learnt Kurdish (Iraqi language) for the film as the rumour goes. Saying ‘Thank you’ in a foreign language doesn’t mean I’ve learnt it. It was nice working with Katrina after Race but it was incredible being in Beirut - among guns, tanks and action! Mine is the role of a mercenary. It reminded me of The Dogs Of War with Christopher Walken.

People say an age gap affects a relationship… (Cuts in) I’d advise all men to marry much younger and beautiful women. (Laughs) How is it a great thing? It’s fairly obvious.

Has Kareena surprised you with her maturity?

I usually expect her to be. On a serious note, I think we are fine. Men mature a little later and women age faster. A 43-year-old man is actually like a 25-year-old. Alec Baldwin said in 30 Rock, “A rich 50 is more like a regular guy at 38.” You should be on the same energy level with your partner despite the age gap. (Laughs) You shouldn’t be too tired and want to go to sleep when she wants to… go dancing! I had an uncle who was married to a lady 30 years his junior. He was in a wheelchair, all wrinkly. It became a joke after a point. It’s sad. She’s around 50 and he passed away about 20 years ago. But on the whole, it’s what works for you. What is that one thing you have inherited from him and that you’d like to pass on to

How have you changed as an actor? I look better, I act better. I have become calmer, more patient.

Has marriage to Kareena Kapoor the best thing that has happened to you?

Of course I can say that. (Laughs) No, it’s not the best thing; it’s a good thing that has happened to me. (Thinks) Okay, it is the best thing that has happened to me.

What has changed after marriage?

your kids? I’d like to say my nose but it’s not so. Something material would be a Swiss watch. The Maharaja of Kashmir had got it for 10 polo players.

It’s got the map of India and it doesn’t show India and Pakistan as separate countries. It’s enamelled and made by Vacheron Constantin, a company in Geneva. I sent them the watch, they fixed it, cleaned it and told me a bit about its long history.

Would you be fine If your daughter Sarah becomes an actress? Of course! I’ll be concerned though. It’s a wonderful profession, but it’s tough too. If she can do a great job, live a normal life, enjoy the sunsets, appreciate the flowers and not get wound up and hysterical about what’s going to happen on Friday… it would be great.

P

ulkit Samrat, 26, believes that while Delhi is his dharam bhoomi, Mumbai is his karma bhoomi.

He grew up wanting to entertain people, be it through magic or through films. While he knew no one when he came to Mumbai eight years ago, he has built some life-long relationships, be it with his fiancee Shweta Rohira, his brother-in-law Salman Khan or his producer Ritesh Sidhwani. Ahead of his upcoming political satire Bangistan, he talks about his friends in the Industry, how he tumbled upton acting and his desire to go back to magic some day. Excerpts:

HOW DID YOU COME INTO FILMS? I was only interested in entertaining and so joined an advertising course in Apeejay Institute of Design, where after five months, I landed my first ad as a model with Asian Paints. I was 19 then and I decided to move to Mumbai, where I did an acting course with Kishore Namit Kapoor. I was auditioned for Balaji's Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and was selected. I then did a musical theatrical show called Taj Express by Vaibhavi Merchant. The casting director of Taj Express was casting for Bittoo Boss and after several rounds of auditions, I was selected. Ritesh Sidhwani saw me in one of the dancing songs of the film and I was auditioned for Fukrey. DO YOU HAVE FRIENDS IN THE INDUSTRY?

Farhan Ahtar is a good friend, I got to know more about him while I worked with him for Fukrey. Both of them Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar are very down to earth people. Also, I hate them for a reason, for they pampered us so much that if we now go to shoot anywhere else people think we are throwing start tantrums. HOW DIFFERENT IS IT TO BE AN ACTOR ON TV VERSUS IN FILMS? The difference is only in scale and detailing. Both mediums have their plusses and minuses. TV will always need films to add the glamour (through award functions, songs, movies on TV). And films would always need TV to promote themselves. I don't mind working in any medium, but everyone wants to try for the highest bar possible and that is what I am doing. I will wait to see which audience accepts me. WHAT ELSE ARE YOU INTERESTED IN? Magic and acting have always been my passions. For five years, I have not been in touch at all, but I do a lot of magic, illusions, levitation, mind reading and card tricks. There was a time, I wanted to do a street magic-based show. From my childhood, I was interested in magic and would read books, visit stalls in Delhi's Diwali melas and would write to international magicians after reading their books. I find that exciting and want to go back to magic once in my life

O

ne such actress who made big is Shraddha Kapoor. Though she failed to meet the expectations during her initial days, Shraddha has proved her skills and made her place prominent in the list of big league actresses. he made her debut as the daughter of veteran actor Shakti Kapoor, Shraddha made her debut as an actor in 2010 with Teen Patti and followed it with her first leading role in the teen drama Luv Ka The End (2011). She has struggled for offers during these days as both the movies could not make any impact at the box-office.

S

Shraddha was born and raised in Mumbai into a mixed ethnic family. On her father’s side, Kapoor is of Punjabi descent, and on her mother’s side, she is of predominantly Marathi ancestry. Like her mother, Kapoor has stated that she is a complete Marathi. Kapoor’s family members, including her parents, Shakti Kapoor and Shivangi Kapoor, her older brother, Siddhanth Kapoor and her two aunts Padmini Kolhapure and Tejaswini Kolhapure are actors in Hindi films. She did her schooling at Jamnabai Narsee School and then enrolled in the American School of Bombay. While there she played soccer and handball competitively. Later, she went to Boston, but subsequently left to appear in her debut film after she was seen on Facebook by producer Ambika Hinduja who cast her for a role in Teen Patti. She made her acting debut in the 2010 drama Teen Patti alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley and R Madhavan. She played the role of a college girl. The film received negative reviews though her performance was well received. Kapoor was

nominated for the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut, however, the film failed to do well at the box-office. The critics and reviewers have praised her performance in the movie and called an impressive debut.

A

fter her debut, she signed a three-film deal with Yash Raj Films and featured in their 2011 teen comedy Luv Ka The End with Taaha Shah. Kapoor portrayed the lead role of a teenage student who plots against her boyfriend after he cheats on her. The film underperformed at the box office and received mixed reviews. Then came Aashiqui 2 which changed her life. This was the best decision in her life and the movie had Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the main leads. Directed by Mohit Suri, the movie went on to collect Rs 100 crores at the box-office.

abir Khan wouldn't have ever imagined this. Or perhaps he would have! After starting on a rather humble note with Kabul Express and then seeing a good opening for his New York (which was the first release after multiplex strike was off a few years back) and a humongous hit of Ek Tha Tiger, sKabir proved that crime and love stories are a perfect combination of romance and action films.. After the stupendous success of Bajrangi bhaijaan, Kabir Khan has devised a trademark of his own. The film is all over the country and in Pakistan, practically, and the Salman Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer should be nothing less than an event to mark the month. While the promotions of the film Phantom are in full swing, it is releasing on August 28th. The story is a crime-thriller and also has a love element is the word. With out much ado let’s find out more about the person that Kabir Khan is.

Did you expect this kind of a response to Bajrangi Bhaijaan? Creatively I was absolutely satisfied with the film so I knew that people would like it, but I didn’t expect this kind of an overwhelming response. My background is documentaries, I want to make commercial films so my struggle has always been to strike the right balance. With Bajrangi Bhaijaan, I knew I had cracked it.

The idea to have Nawazuddin’s character on the real Chand Nawab, how did that come about? I saw his famous video and I laughed my a** off, there on, I knew I would use this character. I was clear that I wanted to do Nawaz’s opening scene frame by frame as it was in the video. My legal team tried

''Nawaz’s

opening scene frame by frame as it was in the video.''

to dissuade me, but I went with my gut. I was sure that any normal, rational guy should not have a problem with it. I was on a TV show recently where they linked me up to Chand Nawab in Pakistan and he is so happy with the film and the way he’s portrayed. He is even getting acting offers.

Harshaali Malhotra has been a big find. It was my biggest challenge as a director to get her to emote. We must have auditioned some 1,000 girls not only in India but also in Kabul and Tehran. My safety net was always my daughter Saira even though I knew that she’s so strong minded that it would be tough to shoot with her. Since the day I have met her, Harshaali would say, “Yeh film main hi karungi Kabir uncle.” I needed someone with this kind of drive and motivation because shooting the film was going to be a logistical nightmare. Her performance has been my greatest challenge and joy.

What is the one trait that Salman helped you discover about yourself? I’ve become more patient after working with him. Salman comes a little late on sets while I like to start early.

What can we expect in your next release, Phantom? Phantom is a different world, but the same zone. I’m taking on the Lashkare-eTaiba head on.

To get to know more about Akshay and to talk about films – let’s get to the excerpt. You've spent over 20 years and done over 130 films — does the release of a new film still bring the butterflies? Yes it does. And if it doesn't work, then I am sad but only till Monday night. After that I have to carry on. I remember talking to Mr. Bachchan about this long back, I don't know whether he would remember it. But I said to him, 'Sir, kabhi kabhi films nahi chalti, how does one deal with that?' He said 'Akshay, no problem, look straight, carry on ahead, work for your next film. Don't take it too seriously." When an actor of that caliber says: Don't take it to your heart, otherwise you won't be able to work for your next movie. You'll destroy the next person's film and points out that there is nothing you can

do. It didn't work, it didn't work; you have to go ahead.

You're the only actor from your generation to sport a salt-and-pepper look on and offscreen.

W

hy should I hide it? I have been working for the last 25 years. I am in my 40s. I have salt and pepper hair and stubble. Why should I hide it? I am even ready to age on screen. People should stop asking actors these questions. Why is this thinking only here? Why is it a problem? Everyone follows the west, so why not when it comes to this?

T

he movie which has created wonders in Indian Film Industry and the one which will remain in the hearts of the audience forever will be Sholay. This action adventure film has been directed by Ramesh Sippy and it released on August 15th 1975. The film has been produced by GP Sippy on Sippy Films banner. The film follows two criminals, Veeru and Jai (played byDharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan), hired by a retired police officer (Sanjeev Kumar) to capture the ruthless dacoit Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan).Hema Malini and Jaya Bhaduri also star, as Veeru and Jai’s love interests. Sholay is considered a classic and one of the best Indian films. It was ranked first in the British Film Institute’s 2002 poll of “Top 10 Indian Films” of all time. In 2005, the judges of the 50th annual Filmfare Awards named it the Best Film of 50 Years. The film was shot in the rocky terrain of Ramanagara, in the southern state ofKarnataka, over a span of two and a half years. After the Central Board of Film Certification mandated the removal of several violent scenes, Sholay was released with a length of 198 minutes. 104

WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | AUGUST 2015

When first released, Sholayreceived negative critical reviews and a tepid commercial response, but favourable word-of-mouth publicity helped it to become a box office success. It broke records for continuous showings in many theatres across India, and ran for more than five years at Mumbai’s Minerva theatre. In some of the territories, Sholay is the highest grossing Indian film of all time, adjusted for inflation. The combined sales of the original soundtrack, scored by R. D. Burman, and the dialogues (released separately), set new sales records. The film’s dialogues and certain characters became extremely popular, contributing to numerous cultural memes and becoming part of India’s daily vernacular. In January 2014, Sholay was re-released to theatres in the 3D format.

I

t was also included in Time Magazine’s “Best of Bollywood” list in 2010 and in CNN-IBN’s list of the “100 greatest Indian films of all time” in 2013.

holay was nominated for nine Filmfare Awards, but the only winner was M. S. Shinde, who won the award for Best Editing. The film also won three awards at the 1976 Bengal Film Journalists’ Association Awards (Hindi section): “Best Actor in Supporting Role” for Amjad Khan, “Best Cinematographer (Colour)” for Dwarka Divecha, and “Best Art Director” for Ram Yedekar.

Sholay received a special award at the 50th Filmfare Awards in 2005: Best Film of 50 Years. Sholay has received many “Best Film” honours. It was declared the “Film of the Millennium” by BBC India in 1999.
