Ten Iconic Bollywood Movie Dialogues

By Deepti Duggal

If you are true blue Indian, you cannot deny the fact that we Indians live, eat and breathe Bollywood. Our day starts and ends with hindi movies , be it the bhajans , romantic songs, action movies or comedies…. U name it and we know it. As much an actor waits for a his release, we as an audience also wait anxiously for a Friday, where we can write the fate of a star !As much as bollywood movies have become our lifeline, so have their dialogues. We use them so often these days that they have become part of our common lingo to express all sorts of emotions, whether being funny or being sentimental. We here present some of the most iconic dialogues of our times which we can relate to in our common lives:

1) “Bade bade deshon mein aesi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hain, Senorita”-

One who has ever seen the 1995 blockbuster Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) can never forget this famous line in his life. This iconic line has become so famous that we have heard and used it everywhere in our daily life…in schools, colleges, with your chaddi buddies or with your sweetheart. Let’s not deny the fact that this is the safest line to use when we need to apologizes someone or when we get naughty with our partners… because Bade bade deshon mein aesi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hain, Senorita !!!


2) “Mere Karan- Arjun aayenge”-

Actress Rakhee has made herself immortal with this line from the very “bromance” filled 95 super hit Karan Arjun. We can still visualize the very gray haired white saree clad Rakhee screaming on the top of her voice and waiting for her original or wait…err…reincarted sons…well that hardly matters. Nevertheless, this line has ever since become associated with anyone who is playing the waiting game or any of our bollywood inspired mother….. !

 3) “Aal izz well”-

Tensed? Anxious? Lonely? Depressed? ….don’t you worry, because we have an answer for you. Presenting to you this very famous dialogue-cum-mantra from the Aamir Khan starrer- “Three Idiots”. This line has become an anthem among everyone especially our confidence lacking school and college going kids who use this whenever they come out of their exams hall. So if you are neck deep in problems, just keep your hand on your heart and say….” Aal izz Well”!!!

 4) “Kuch Kuch hota hain, tum nahi samjoho ge”-

Uff…. Such a romantic dialogue from the hopelessly romantic pair of SRK-Kajol’s ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hain”. Even after 18 years of its release, this evergreen line is used by young and old, rich and poor to tell their “dil ka haal” when they see their crush or sweetheart… after all when “kuch kuch hota hain” happens in heart… everything becomes the best ….

5) “Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost”-

 Life these days is very unpredictable… we sometimes have happy moments and sometimes sad ones …and we are always in anticipation of our future… so no better way to describe our state of affairs than this filmy line from “Om Shanti Om”. Henceforth whenever you are sad or burdened down with life’s problems… just close your eyes and say that “picture abhi baaki hain”… and voila you would feel much better!! SRK… what an inspirational line !!!

 6) “Halat dekhi hain, adrak ho gaya hain yeh aadmi, kahi se bhi bad raha hain”-

 What an apt description for men…. Who turn from a six pack to a family pack as soon as they are hooked, booked and cooked!! I personally salute the writers for coming up with such a crispy line and the way Kangana says it to Madhavan is just fabulous ….because this is the problem of every Indian wife who expects a “Hrithik” in her life and ends up with a “kaddu” in reality. Men… time to wake up !!

 7) Ek bar jo maine commitment kar di, toh fir main apne aap ki bhi nai sunta”-

Salman Khan Fans rejoice … here we present to you the most famous dialogue from his hit movie “Wanted’.This line is equivalent to giving a promise and not going back on one’s word… but unfortunately it is still not understood by most of us and hence is taken up as a joke. Although the dialogue has a deep meaning to it but we still enjoy and laugh at it or use it to make others laugh.

8) “Kabhi kabhi jeetne ke liye kuch haarna bhi padta hai … aur haar kar jeetne waale ko baazigar kehte hain”-

 One of the most used dialogues by our roadside Romeos to woo their lady loves is this one from the superhit Baazigar where the sweaty young SRK tries to woo Kajol by losing a car race. Ever since this line has become the anthem for the young lovers especially boys….don’t know how many “baazigars” have born till date

9) “Don ko pakdna mushkil hi nahi…na mumkin hain”-

Now this is one line that has been used not once but twice in our movies. It was first used by the superstar Amitabh Bachchan in the movie Don of 1970’s to be again used by SRK in DON of the 2000’s !! Nevertheless this line is so catchy that its now used by everyone who is bollywood buff who wants to run away from every situation and does not want to commit himself to anything. God knows when people would understand that “kanoon ke haath bahut lambe hote hain” and Don would be caught ultimately.

10) “Kutte Kaminey main tera khoon pe jaonga”-

Last but certainly not the least this most iconic dialogue of Sholay is still used in every nook and corner of the country. Be it a clash between friends, brothers, groups this famous line comes up in a second from the mouth. And not only this Dharmendra dialogue famous among fights , it’s all used in comedy shows and have become a part of the reality shows on TV.

This is just a small jest of some of our most famous and iconic bollywood dialogues.. the list is endless and one can never summarize it totally. On second thoughts we wonder what are lives would be without these lines … somewhere or the other these lines do hold a meaning and add up spice to our mundane lives…after all “Filmein sirf teen cheezo ke wajah se chalti hai … entertainment, entertainment, entertainment … aur dialogues entertainment hain”
