Nothing much left to discuss about this great piece of art.But Still we talk about it.Though it is a bollywood movie but no doubt, ‘Sholay’ is more than a movie.It is one of the greatest milestones of Indian Cinema. Released on 15 August,1975, the film made history.Whether it is Gabbar or Thakur, every character of this film are familiar to cine-lovers.But this time, we are going to watch the successor of ‘Sholay’...!! Though it sounds hard, but Superstar Rajnikant recently compared ‘Sholay’ with his coming mega project ‘Endhiran’.
He says, Endhiran or Robot (Hindi Version) is the first Indian Film of its type and that every aspect of it is comparable to cult Hindi movie ‘Sholay’.
After a long period of 35 years,Sholay, which is still fondly remembered, is compared to Endhiran because of strong storyline. Sholay made history not because of the money or budget involved, not because it was a multi-starer including the big names of that time like Dharmendra, Hema Malini,Sanjeev Kapoor as well as the upcoming star Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan,Amjad khan. Sholay was not rewarded for its technical qualities too. But it create magic in box office and made history just because of its Subject, superb characterization and strong script. Rajnikant says,like ‘Sholay’, in ‘Robot’ too there is an excellent storyline, excellent character sketches.
‘Endhiran’ is quoted as the much awaited scientifiec fiction fantasy flick of 2010. Around Rs.160 crore has been invested to make this sci-fi. The God of South, Rajnikant will be seen sharing screen with Bollywood beauty Aishwariya Rai Bachchan. Other casts of the movie includes the names like Dany Danzongpa too.The story of this acton-packed movie revolves around a Robot.It is a unique concept in which the Robot turns into a human being and starts mingling with the society.
This Tri-lingual film will be released in Telegu, Tamil as well as in Hindi. Oscar winner music maestreo A R Rehman composed the tunes for this costliest ever movie, Directed by noted filmmaker Shankar. To Shankar, Endhiran is not inspired from any other works at all.It's unique and inspired from his own imagination.Apart from all this, Big-B will be there but this time 'Off-screen'! Amitabh Bachchan will be in ‘Endhiran’,voicing for Robot.It seems that there is no stone unturned in making it a ‘Big hit’.
Endhiran, is being considered as the next big thing in the indian cinema history. But is it really the ‘Successor’ of Sholay!! We have no way left other than wait for coming 24 September, the expected date of ‘Robot’s arrival in theatres..!
