Sholay with more men..!!
5 December 2018 | by Tejas_Vinda_AITSSee all my reviews

I love this movie.

No great names but amazing actors like Om Puri, Amrish Puri, Danny to name a few.

Mukesh Tiwari made a remarkable debut and impressed all. "Chamma Chamma" was a craze at that time. Reminds me of the my child hood days when i never missed a new release!

N story is not dissimilar to grt sholay..!!
