Arre o Saambha, kitne aadmi tay? Gabbar

Sholay the Soundtrack

Sholay's theme song is a slick Wild West inspired track that captures the essence of the film. The song starts with a low strumming of an acoustic guitar then crescendos with the sound of violins. The low key strumming of the guitar reminds me of Amithabh Bachchan as Jai because it depicts his cool, yet aloof attitude and the crescendo of the violins, reminds me of Dharmendra as Veeru because of his boisterous personality. The common element throughout the theme song is that the instruments interlude each character's personality. You can tell by listening to this song that RB Barman carefully chose instruments when composing the score.
