Day 73/ 365 – Some of my favorite Hindi movie dialogues


A couple of weeks ago, a 3D version of Sholay – one of the movies made in the 1970’s was released. The movie was superhit when it was released, smashing all records and was playing at Maratha Mandir continously for 3 years (before being overtaken by DDLJ). The movie had some of the best dialogues like “Kitne aadmi the” and “Yeh haath mujhe dede Thakur” and many more. This got me thinking and decided to write this post highlighting the 10 best dialogues from Hindi movies which I like:

  1. Ye bachchon ke khelne ki cheez nahin, haath kat jae to khoon nikal ata hai… – Waqt (1965)
  2. Babumoshai, zindagi aur maut uparwale ke haath hai. Usse na aap badal sakte hain na main –  Anand (1971)
  3. Aap ke paon dekhey, bahut haseen hain, inhen zameen par mat utariyega, maile ho jayengey – Pakeezah (1972)
  4. Saara shaher mujhe loin ke naam se jaanta hai Kalicharan (1976)
  5. Mere paas maa hai – Deewar (1975)
  6. Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hai Don (1978)
  7. Draupadi tere akele ki nahi hai, hum sab shareholder hain Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron (1983)
  8. Jab yeh dhaai kilo ka haath kisipe padta hain, toh aadmi uthta nahi, uth jaata hai – Damini (1993)
  9. Teja main hoon, mark idhar hai – Andaz Apna Apna (1994)
  10. Koi baat nahi Senorita, bade bade deshon main aisi chhoti chhoti baatein hoti rehti hai Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1994)
