DJ Anjali continues her series of classic Bollywood film screenings at the Hollywood Theatre with a one-night showing of the original Sholay from 1975 starring Amitabh Bachchan Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Jaya Bhaduri, Amjad Khan & of course an item number from Helen, Queen of the Nautch Girls.
One of Bollywood’s most famous films, it catapulted Bachchan into super stardom. In addition to being the hit film of the 70's, it is often said to be Bollywood’s biggest money maker.
An incredibly entertaining masala flick, as well as the first curry western, it of course comes with a classic soundtrack from the one & only R.D. Burman.
Sholay tells the tale of two guns for hire. Ex-police officer Thakur employs two petty criminals to capture notorious gang leader Gabbar Singh. Sholay in Hindi translates to ‘embers’ and in this case revenge plus 50,000 rupees are fueling the fire.
Masala Pop will be serving up a tasty, Indian-spiced popcorn snack mix handcrafted in Portland, Oregon. Enjoy a night of Bollywood at the Hollywood!
