It indeed is surprising that while Bangalore is one of the most important emerging cities around the world, and such has been its impact at the international level that a word Banglored has entered into the lexicon (in context of the IT jobs shifting from US to India), Hindi cinema has not been that particularly endowed towards Bangalore as a destination for shooting the films. From this perspective it indeed is paradoxical. May be, the paradox of Bangalore not being a chosen city to shoot the films could have got something to do with the fact that it has become too crowded for organizing a shoot. Whatever being the case, it indeed is an opportune moment to run through some important films which were shot in Bangalore and which made the city famous internationally.


The cult film of Hindi cinema SHOLAY was shot around Bangalore and made its rugged landscape famous as favorite destination for shooting scores of films; especially the climax films and notable famous films included QAYAMAT SE QAYAMAT TAK, LOHA etc. It was SHOLAY that really catapulted Bangalore into the psyche of the nation as a whole.
