If you eat sleep and drink movies, this one is for you. If you don’t well, you’ve gotta read this. Chances are you’ve heard these epic one liners being used by a zillion people. But do you know when and where these famous dialogues first appeared? Read on...
Dilip Kumar: “Kaun kambakht bardaasht karne ko peeta hai? Main toh peeta hoon ke bas saans le saku.
Dilip Kumar set the trend in 1955 and Shahrukh Khan said it again in 2002. No! This is not a public service campaign and we hope audiences did not take to drinking too seriously.
Rajesh Khanna: “Hum sab rangmanch ki kathputliyan hain jinki dor uparwale ki ungliyon se bandhi hui hai. Kab, kaun, kaise uthega ye koi nahin bata sakta.” Said it with so much depth! Gets us every time.
Amitabh Bachchan: “Jab tak baithne ko na kaha jaye, khade raho! Yeh Police Station hai, tumhare baap ka ghar nahi!”
How we wish our police personnel could actually say that every once in a while. Eh?
Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973)
Dharmendra: "Kutte, kameene, main tera khoon pee jaoonga."
We all know our Dharam Paaji to have had some detestation towards the canines! The reason for the hatred is still unknown. But some terrific acting though.
Amitabh Bachchan: "Aaj mere paas gaadi hai, bungla hai, paisa hai... tumhare paas kya hai?"
Shashi Kapoor: "Mere paas, mere paas... Maa hai....”
This one is etched in history and in our minds too, forever. Maa!
Amjad Khan: “Yeh haath mujhe de de Thakur! & ‘Kitne Aadmi The”
Never before was a villain so feared. Iconic and scary, this dialogue gave us goose bumps! And yes, most of us closed our eyes for those two seconds. If you haven’t seen this flick, talk to the hand.
Mr. India (1987)
Amrish Puri: "Mogambo khush hua!"
Hat’s off to the late Amrish Puri for delivering this one so convincingly. Thanks to this, villains became larger than life in Hindi cinema.
Amitabh Bachchan: "Rishte mein to hum tumhare baap lagte hain, naam hai Shahenshah!"
We could not have agreed more to that!
Sunny Deol: “Yeh dhai kilo ka haath jab kisi pe padta hai toh who uththa nahi uth jaata hai!”
Do we doubt that? No way! Not at all! Who dare take punga with Sunny paaji? Not us!
Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995)
Shahrukh Khan: "Bade bade shehron mein aisi chhoti chhoti baatein hoti rehti hain.”
It doesn't get any more cult that that.
But wait. The list does not end here.
