Then why did DEVDAS win so many? No problem if it involves their coverboys, is it?

Doing business doesn't make any film get any award,especially if that is copy paste from foreign film without acknowledgiing source.'

'Sholay’ was modeled on many a classic Western film. The main plot- about mercenaries defending a village against bandits who raid it for provisions- is basically a compressed version of ‘The Magnificent Seven’ which in turn was inspired by the far superior ‘Seven Samurai’.

One of the things that not many people might not know is that the scene where Gabbar Singh slaughters Thakur’s family is modeled quite somewhat similarly to the scene from Leone’s ‘Once Upon A Time In The West’, in which Henry Fonda’s devilish Frank and his men kill McBain and his family.
Even the music and sound effects are similar in the two scenes.
Even Iconic Mehbuba song was clear copy paste from Demis Roussoss’s Say You Love Me. Demis' original was released in 1974.
