English Title: Seven Samurai. A small Japanese village is threatened by bandits who would steal all their crops when they are harvested. Fed up, the villagers decide to hire samurai to protect their village in return for three square meals. They finally manage to recruit Kambei Shimada (Shimura) who understands the villagers plight and agrees to fight for respect and not for the monetary benefits. He manages to find six others like-minded samurai who all agree to protect the village. The rest of the movie is predictable, but that doesn't mean its any less a good watch. A very direct, to the point and simple movie. No unnecessary nonsense, and a wonderful watch. Toshiro Mifune brings out the little humour the movie has and does an outstanding performance. Classics like these are worth collecting. It also inspired the less successful Bollywood movie China Gate. Please don't judge the movie on the basis of its Indian counterpart.

Rating: 8.2/10
