Whether you are planning an outing with your family, get-together with friends, date with girlfriend/boyfriend or want to enjoy alone; Bollywood movies are a great option in all such situations. Every Friday, new movies are released and the theatres, multiplexes are thronged by movie buffs. As in every field there are goods and bads, similarly in Bollywood, there are hits and flop movies.

There were movies and actors who came and went away, even without getting noticed or talked about. And then there were actors and movies which became legends through their scenes, dialogues and their immortal work. There are many such legendary actors like Guru Dutt, Ashok Kumar, Kishore Kumar, Meena Kumari, Waheeda Rahman, Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan and Kajol, to name a few. There are many movies whose scenes, dialogues and actors got imprinted in the hearts and minds of the movie lovers.

Among the innumerable immortal movies, Sholay is the best Bollywood movie ever made, which always remains fresh in the memories of Indian movie watchers. Each and every character in the movie, be it Jay or Veeru, Gabbar, Kalia or Samba, Thakur Sahab or Ramdas, Basanti or Radha, Mausiji or Rahim Chacha or jailor, is iconic and their dialogues and acting is just superb. The movie Sholay has action, drama, comedy, emotion and good songs. All the dialogues in the movie are excellent which have stood against the test of time.

Some of the very famous and memorable dialogues of the movie are

You can even hear people using the dialogues of the movie in everyday life. The dialogues and characters of the movie are deeply imprinted in every movie lover in India. Sholay is an epic movie which can be watched again and again and still one won’t get bored with the movie.
