“Hum angrezon ke zamaane ke jailor hain! Ha haa…”. Sholay was released when young Indians, all born in free India, could easily make fun of their imperialistic past. The youth were ambitious, but frustrated with the lack of opportunity and corruption in the system. “Mujhe to sab pulis waalon ki soortein ek jaisi lagti hain” said Jai sarcastically. Police were not efficient enough to curb the increasing crime rate. Dacoits like Gabbar kept many villages under their control. It was a society where lack of opportunity created thieves of even good people like Jai and Veeru. Young men living in villages, like Ahmed, had to move to cities in hope for better life.

The irony of the movie was that it took two outlaws to liberate the village from the clutches of devil. Angry young men were taking law into their own hands. It was these angry young Indians who finally led the downfall of Indira Gandhi. Know how the Emergency of the mid 1970s had a direct bearing on the script of the movie Sholay. A must read.
