Sholay 3D Movie Review

Ratings:– Review By: Rajeev Masand Site: Masand’s Verdict ( CNN IBN)

Sholay on the big screen is an exhilarating 3 hour 24 minute-movie event, with or without 3D glasses. It is wildly entertaining, unforgettable cinema, and I’m willing to bet that it’ll probably be the best film you’ll see in the theatres this year. Don’t miss it.

The 3D version of this all-time classic should work for two reasons: One, the simplicity on display, when one compares it with the recent releases that are infested with VFX. Two, the invigorating and revitalizing drama [writers: Salim-Javed] that leaves you awestruck, even though you may have lost count of the number of times you’ve watched this incredible entertainer. With 3D, every pivotal character stands out [quite literally!] in the film. On the whole, there are films and there is SHOLAY. Frankly, it would be sacrilegious to miss this classic. Watch it. Now.

The 3D itself is tedious, like a classic novel being turned into a children’s pop-up book. A couple of scenes look decent, sure, but overall this is a film that is infinitely improved by taking off the glasses and watching it commando. Sholay isn’t just familiar, it’s family.  Watch Sholay for a taste of how good the Indian entertainer can truly be, and revel in the magic you already know. But don’t 3D it.

Sholay wasn’t obviously made with 3D in mind. So, apart from adding depth to the frames, the added dimension does not actually ‘add’ any significant value to the movie experience. Here, 3D is no more than superficial embellishment at best. However, a few of the action sequences do acquire life-like proportions but that does not happen often enough to make a lasting impression.Sholay was an event when it hit the screens way back in the mid 1970s. Its reappearance in a new format may not create quite the same ripples, but Sholay, 3D or not, is definitely worth a revisit.

This is not a review. This is why I think ‘Sholay’, re-released in a 3D version, needs to be your go-to movie this weekend, no ifs, no buts. And that’s because, `Bharat desh ke vaasiyon’, ‘Sholay’ is the greatest Hindi ‘masala’ entertainer ever made, 3D, 2D or no D.I watched it yesterday in 3D, fully prepared to moan and groan about how it ruined the film for me. But nothing took away from my viewing ; I even enjoyed a few of the 3D bells and whistles, despite the darkened screen.

One of the biggest reasons to re-visit this classic again is that many of you may have not seen this film on the big screen. That’s the way a film like Sholay should actually be viewed. With topnotch performances, extremely well-constructed scenes and superlative directorial effort, revisiting this gem of a movie would be a perfect and the best way to begin your cinematic journey of 2014.

The 3D conversion could’ve been more polished for a film of this stature. Still, the effect is spellbinding. The train sequence (still the best train sequence ever shot in Hindi cinema) is the highlight – new effects have been added to enhance the 3D element. With a length of over 3 hours, the 3D gets tiresome in parts but the sheer grandeur of the film keeps you going. India’s epic adventure is back – rush to the screens now!

The makers have meticulously worked on the minute details to give the film the perfect 3D effect and a great tribute too. For its story, for its dialogues, for its picturization, for its songs, for the acting; the film shall always remain a cult classic; an epic we venerate, be it in any form or in any era. A film like this can never be rated for it is the film that made the stars what they became.

  1. Sholay is to be watched in BIG screen,preferably in 2D to realise its originality.We got another chance to see "kitne admi the" !
    I am very excited to see it again..to relive every moments that have been utilised in discussing sholay right from our childhood….every movie buff must have thought atleast once in a week about sholay…even a tiny dialogue like-"PURE PACHASS HAAZAR" made an actor out of mc mohan,these are the only words mcji have uttered in the whole movie ! To me,sholay is the height of greatness.
    Dear movie buff,lets motivate more and more people to witness this greatness on big screen.
    Long live sholay…

    Ashis….a SHOLAIAN…

  2. I watched it yesterday…..and believe me you should go and watch…. good job done ….BG music is decently enhanced I just loved it ..and in 3D few action seq are fab just bcoz of adding CG elements. rest of movie u will watch as a 2D only as there was nothing much to give depth…but really Decent work is done.

  3. As a devoted movie lover, my most desirable dream came true this week with Ramesh Sippy’s magnum opus SHOLAY getting re-released in 3D after 38 years of its very first release. I was, until, one of those few unlucky who hadn’t experienced this all-time blockbuster and the biggest entertainer in Indian Cinema on big screen. So first and foremost, no matter how many times you have seen it before, no matter how religiously you have learnt all its juicy dialogues by heart…you should rush to the nearest cinema to relive this enormously engaging film bollywood has ever produced.

    The new form of SHOLAY in 3D has only improved and enhanced the experience. There are added 3D effect-gimmicks also that will make you satisfied with the glasses. The background score and songs are brilliantly been reworked in an enhancing Dolby digital atmosphere. CG effects keep the freshness in the visuals alive and intact but these aren’t and shouldn’t be the criteria to judge the film. Watch it for the status it has achieved through all these years and still doesn’t smell rot and old-fashioned. Classic in other words! This one is a visual heritage in cinema you should pass on to the next generation. Take your kids & family as I say, “History repeats itself but not so often”. Be a part of it! [5/5]
