And then, we watched Sholay and marvelled at how carefully chiselled each scene was, each character was. The train dacoity scene, the dhanno chase scene, Sachin's death, Amitabh's death...classic scenes. Once again complete reverence, entertainment. I would say, a good summer.
I remember first watching it in Hanamkonda. The crowds were crazy and my dad had to pull a few strings to get tickets and we all went, all six siblings (I was in my fifth class then perhaps, so the violence must have been a bit excessive). We actually went in my dad's subordinates car, an old car, perhaps a Standard and we christened it 'Sholay' car. Remember the awe, the spectacle - never realised how much it impacted me deep inside.
