S06E4: Sholay (1975) - Sexy, Angry Amitabh Bachchan

Joining us today is our friend, Yamini. And we are talking about Sholay. Sholay (lit. Embers) is a 1975 Indian action-adventure film written by Salim-Javed, directed by Ramesh Sippy, and produced by his father G. P. Sippy. The film is about two criminals, Veeru and Jai (played by Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan respectively), hired by a retired police officer (Sanjeev Kumar) to capture the ruthless dacoit, Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan).
