I forgot to say that the end of Sholay reminded me of the Knights Who Say "Ni" and I had to roll up on the couch laughing. That probably means I have some cultural baggage or something. I am a huuuuge fan of Mrs. Peel-era The Avengers, which has plenty of schlocky stunts, but somehow I could not quite handle this one, I think maybe because it's a decade later and its "look and feel" counterpart, in my mind, is The Godfather.

Anyway, just go read The Gorilla's Lament review because he says most of what I wanted to say and he does it better. Long live Basanti and Veeru.
