India's Seven Samurai but with only two. It would appear that in India two is enough ;-) I think this is a better take on Akira Kurasawa's masterpiece then The Magnificent Seven though that was not a shabby movie by any means.
I wish I knew more about Indian films, especially ones like this. I was volunteering in a Delhi slum school, and knowing this film (and reenacting the climactic fight) really won the classes over for me.
I am not a huge Bollywood fan but this film HAS to be seen and is a hard film not to love. Really epic, full of excitement with great characters, performances and action. A great introduction to Indian cinema
