Apni life ekdum filmi hai !

The relationship between Bollywood movies and the Indian audience is simply mind-blowing. We and I speak for most of the masses...take Hindi movie industry for if it's our "janm sidh aadhikar". The Indian audience, I feel has alwaz been very emotional when it comes to Hindi movies. The movies we hate...never get to live another week at the box office and the movies we love, just keep going on and on and on...example Sholay, DDLJ, 'Rangeela' which brought Mumbaiya language into the limelight, etc.

The impact of Hindi movies on our daily lives is no new news. They in many cases, set new trends, fashion statements, music that we dance/cry/laugh to and not to forget amazing one liners that we use/hear in our day to day life.

Some of the popular Hindi movie dialogues, which are simply priceless, according to me -

'Pushpa I hate tears' - Rajesh Khanna in Amar Prem. This line and the movie gave him the Superstar Status. Though the dialogue was meant to be serious but today it is used in many movies to crack-up the audience.

'Mogambo khush hua'- Amrish Puri in Mr. India. I simply love this movie.

'Jaani ye chakoo hai, lag jaye toh khoon nikal aata hai'-
Raaj Kumar in Waqt.

'Kitne aadmi the?'- Amjad Khan in 'Sholay'. The dialogues and the movie need no introduction, they are just too mast. Other famous dialogue from the 'Hum angrezon ke zamaane ke jailor hai' by Asrani.

'Saara shehar mujhe LOIN ke naam se jaanta hai'- Ajit in Kalicharan. This movie also made names like 'Rooberrt' and 'Moona' and 'Soona' so famous, that when used people burst into laughter no matter what mood they are in. The movie also gave birth to millions of 'Ajit' jokes.

'Baaalmmma, main ik nanha sa chota sa pyala sa bachcha hoon' -Shakti Kapoor in Chaalbaaz. The combination of Shakti Kapoor is 'kaccha' with the 'naada' loosely hanging and this line..was ekdum chakhas. Also the scene where Kader Khan gives road directions to Shakti Kapoor and lands up mugging him, was fabulous.

'Rishtey mein hum tuhmare baap lagte hai, naam hai Shahensha'- Amitabh Bachan in Shahensha. Though the movie was fully faltoo but Amitabh's acting and this line made it run for many weeks at the box office. Amitabh is many ways is the epicenter of famous one liners with his amazing dialogue delivery and stance, for example 'English is a veery phunny language' in Namak Halal, 'Mere paas paisa, gadi, bungla hai' from Deewar, 'Ye police station hai, tumhare baap ka ghar nahin' in Zanjeer, etc.

'Ki..Ki..Ki..Kiran'- Shahrukh Khan in Darr. He made stammering look cool. And he still does.

'I am aaa Baaad Man'- Gulshan Grover in Raam Lakhan. The name till today is stuck with him, but I think it's more to do with his personal life then just a movie line. BTW i thought Anupam Kher was simply hilarious in this movie.

I know i am missing many more, but yaar i have to get back to work too. Maybe you guys can suggest other one-liners and post them in the comments section.

Other one-liners that have been used in thousands of Hindi movies, that have been ratofied in our heads, are-

1.Kuttay, Kameenay mai tujhe jaan se maar doonga

2. Mai tumhara ehasaan zindagi bhar nahin bhuloonga / bhuloongi

3. Itnay paisay tum kahan se laaye?

4. Main tumharay bina mar jaa-oongi.

5. Main tera khoon pee jaaonga!

6. Yeh anyay hai bhagwan.

7. Bataoo, heeray kahan hai.

8. Tum may-re liye mar chuke ho.

9. Puliss meray peechay lagi hui hai.

10. Mai tumharay bachhe ki maa ban-nay waali hoon!

Dont you feel it's high time that the government comes out with an official Hindi movie dictionary.

  1. Excellent idea for an official Hindi movie dictionary.

    My personal favourite during the 80's was - 'Aggar tumne apneh Maa kaa Doodh peyaa hai toh aajaa'.

    A whole book could be written just on Sholay dialogues.

  2. Oh yes....someone remembers that amazing beggar sequence from Chaalbaaz...

    Shakti: "Mujhe Do Cheeson Se Sakt Nafrat Hain---Bhikari aur Kutee"

    Kader: "Aine Main Shakal Dekh Lo, Dono Nafratein Door Ho Jayenge"

    (or lines to that effect)

    And Shakti Kapoor did not just say 'Balma' its a lusty "Balllmaaaaaaa"....

    Nice post :-)

  3. Thanks Greatbong...(oopps the sentence sounds so funny)

    I completely...with the lusty 'Baalmmaa' bit. Also the other funny scene in the movie was between Sredevi and Rajnikanth..where she puts 'ghaslate' in his 'daru' bottle.

    Rajnikanth's song "Aaj sunday hai, toh..toh din mein daaru peene ka day hai".

  4. Hilarious!! How 'bout:

    "Doctor, meray bachay ki jaan bacha lo."

  5. Oh and shouldn't #5 be preceded with "kuttay, kameenay"?
     — Anonymous raven, at 9/02/2005 06:40:00 PM 

  6. Oh never mind - that's #1. Silly me :)

  7. "Galti se misstake ho gaya boss" Viju Khote 's punch in Andaz Apna Apna.

    also another line from the same movie..Aaamir says...

    "aap mahaan hai,aap ye hain,aap woh hain,balki main kehta hoon--ki aap purush hi nahi hain!!!!!!!!!"

    and after a pause where the other guy is stunned says
    "aap mahapurush hai!"

    Shakti Kapoor from the same movie..
    "Cirme master Gogo, Ankhein nikal kar gotiya khelta hu"

    The best and shock-value "dialaaag", im my books, was from Om Puri in Ardha Satya to Sadashiv Amrapurkar

    "Kutte, to mein kya tera ghoo chaatu"

    Never before, on Indian celluloid, had words so harsh been spoken

  10. "driver, gaadi roko" is one of the most used dialogues.
