    Verdict - 3D is ok but film is spectacular!

    Does this film really warrant a review to be watched?

    At this point let me state, if you haven't seen it yet, just shut this review and go watch it.

    For those who are looking at a rewatch, let me say the joy of watching it on the big screen is unparalleld.

    The coin toss, the jokes, the tanki proposal, the coy romance, Basantis tanga, Jai-Veerus dosti, Gabbar, Gabbar, Gabbar, Sambha, Kitne Aadmi the, AK Hangal, the songs, the Western feel, the horse chase at the start, action, the emotions, Salim-Javed's cracking script...I could keep going on.

    Actually, at this point I am really overwhelmed at watching this epic film on big screen for the first time. These are the reasons one loves Hindi films and yearns to work here.

    Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra are an awesome twosome & every other performance is equally exciting. Never before have I seen cameos so strong that they are characters in themselves.

    I am going to stop at this point and just say go watch it. Please do.
    Ok so I will mention that the 3D is just about ok and only comes out popping in the action scenes but does it really matter?

    I just wanted to watch this film and experience it all once again. You should too. Take your kids, family members, staff & go revisit this classic. Its awesome!
