    Default The Top 25 Dialogues of Hindi Cinema



    Film buff Sukanya Verma presents some of the most iconic Hindi film dialogues of all time.

    Mr Gable stands corrected. I do give a damn.

    A largely silent film may have swept top honors at the recent Oscars but dialogues continue to enjoy a formidable place in the movies. Right from bombastic and florid to pedestrian and monosyllabic, it's all about saying the right words at the right time.

    Dialoguebaazi is the backbone of Bollywood's flamboyant personality. Right from its reliable stock of 'Apne aap ko kanoon ke hawale kar do' and 'Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhod do' to the more distinct gems like 'Tumhare naam kya hai, Basanti' and 'Aap purush hi nahi, Maha purush hain' as well as the most recent punch-lines, 'Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost,' 'Filmein sirf teen cheezon ke wajah se chalti hain -- entertainment, entertainment, entertainment. Aur main entertainment hoon,' there's no dearth of quotable quotes in our movies.

    Mouthing catchphrases or zingy lines is quite easily the most fun and addictive element in any cinema aficionado's conversation. But to pick 25 of its best ones from a heap of hundreds of movies, thousands of lines and millions of reasons is tougher than it looks.

    Nonetheless, here's an assorted compilation of the most iconic, amusing and catchy movie quotes I love, arranged in a chronological order.

    1. 'Kaun kambakth hai jo bardasht karne ke liye peeta hai. Main toh peeta hoon ke bas saans le sakoon.'

    Film: Devdas (1955)
    Dialogues: Rajinder Singh Bedi

    It's been more than half a century but Dilip Kumar's unforgettable anguish, as he conveys the pitiable desperation of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's tragic hero, still evokes a feverish sigh.

    Shah Rukh Khan's version does too. Out of exasperation, that is.

    'Salim tujhe marne nahi dega aur hum, Anarkali, tujhe jeene nahi denge'

    Film: Mughal-E-Azam (1960)
    Dialogues: Amanullah Khan, Kamal Amrohi, Wajahat Mirza and Ehsan Rizvi

    Few are blessed with the baritone of Prithviraj Kapoor.

    And he employs it to intimidate Madhubala's lovelorn Anarkali with an intent that's both -- unconcealed and epic.

    Later, of course, the statement was distorted to become a popular Ajit (Incidentally, he essayed Durjan Singh in Mughal-E-Azam) joke: Liquid isse jeene nahi dega aur Oxygen isse marne nahi dega.

    'Jinke ghar sheeshe ke hote hain woh doosron ke gharron par patthar nahi phenka karte'

    Film: Waqt (1965)
    Dialogues: Akhtar-Ul-Iman

    How to make a well-known idiom into your own?

    Answer. Raaj Kumar.

    His classic style of delivery ensures you never quite forget this lesson in conduct.

    'Tum ahankaar ho, tumko marna hoga. Main aatma hoon, amar hoon'



    Film: Guide (1966)
    Dialogues: Vijay Anand

    Although the entire monologue when Dev Anand's inner self discusses the conflict, between his worldly role and salvation of his soul, is exceptionally riveting, it's these profound lines that stand out most in explaining the transition.

    'Babumoshai, zindagi aur maut uparwale ke haath hai. Usse na aap badal sakte hain na main'

    Film: Anand (1971)
    Dialogues: Gulzar

    Nobody demonstrates the philosophy of Anand better than Anand himself.

    What makes the truth in Gulzar's words even more effective is how they play out in the climax. Just when we start to mourn the loss of its vibrant titular character; comes in Rajesh Khanna's lively discourse on life and its unpredictability.

    Embrace it, you do.

    'Aap ke paon dekhey, bahut haseen hain, inhen zameen par mat utariyega, maile ho jayengey'

    Film: Pakeezah (1972)
    Dialogues: Kamal Amrohi

    And words are all he has to take her heart away.

    The grace and grandeur of Raaj Kumar's delicate observation is simply too precious to not give in.

    The lovely Meena Kumari cannot help but reciprocate.

    'Mujhse dosti karoge?'

    Film: Bobby (1973)
    Dialogues: Jainendra Jain

    Bobby captures an entire generation's heart with her disarming exuberance, cutesy miniskirts and a warm, friendly proposition.

    Best friends since 1973 and still going strong. Right, Ms Braganza?

    'Khamoshhhhh!'

    Film: Badla (1974)
    Dialogues: Jagdish Kanwal

    S
    peaking of dialogues, can Shatrughan Sinha be behind?

    Considering, it's his forte; the man's had many a rollicking, whistle-inducing lines to his credit.

    But it's his utter conviction in hollering 'Khamosh' that continues to shut us up in delight till date.

    'Saara shaher mujhe loin ke naam se jaanta hai'

    Film: Kalicharan (1976)
    Dialogues: Jainendra Jain

    It's not just the arrogance of Ajit's peculiar tone but the manner he chooses to pronounce Lion as Loin that makes all the difference in Subhash Ghai's directorial debut.

    'Kitne aadmi the?'

    Film: Sholay (1975)
    Dialogues: Salim-Javed

    One could compile an entire slide show with Sholay's punch-lines (I've limited myself to three).

    And while Amjad Khan's career best role has him saying a whole lot of cool stuff that continues to be revered and referenced with manic enthusiasm, his menacing inquiry, 'Kitne aadmi the?' leads the count.

    'Main iska khoon pee jaonga'

    Film: Sholay (1975)
    Dialogues: Salim-Javed

    Dharmendra may have never played a vampire but the most memorable line of his career has him mocking one.

    His incensed rage seems both justified and believable after he loses Jai (Amitabh Bachchan) and unleashes his fury on the evil Gabbar in Salim-Javed's action-packed script.

    'Chal Dhanno, aaj teri Basanti ki izzat ka sawaal hai'

    Film: Sholay (1975)
    Dialogues: Salim-Javed

    Being the most loquacious character in one of Bollywood's most beloved movies has its perks.

    Salim-Javed's historic script ensured Hema Malini and the horse get their due as she takes on Gabbar's men with her 'Chal Dhanno' call that was later spoofed by Shah Rukh Khan with a rickshaw in Farah Khan's Main Hoon Naa.

    'Mere paas maa hai'

    Film: Deewar (1975)
    Dialogues: Salim-Javed

    It takes a Maa to steal the scene from the otherwise invincible Amitabh Bachchan.

    Only Salim-Javed could have cracked a retort of this stature.

    Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hai'

    Film: Don (1978)
    Dialogues: Salim-Javed
    There's something about the confidence of this statement where Amitabh Bachchan declares the implausibility of such possibility, it had to catch on.

    No surprise then that even the generation, unacquainted with the original, succumbed to its charm when Shah Rukh Khan proclaimed the same in Farhan Akhtar's version.
