Dialogues form the heart and soul of any film. In the 100 years of Indian cinema, there have been many iconic dialogues, especially from Bollywood that have remained with audiences even today.
Whether its films like Sholay, Agneepath, Mughal E Azam, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Maine Pyaar Kiya or Dabangg, it's the dialogues that have shaped the emotional content of the film and heightened them in a way.
Rewinding into the past and moving into the present, here are a few such dialogues that have become popular over the years and have become a way of though and speech with Indian fans.
When Mughal E Azam hit theatres, the film created history for the performances, dialogues, costumes, music and set. Although the entire film is memorable, the one dialogue that sums the film and stands out powerfully is when an angry Akbar (Prithviraj Kapoor) tells Anarkali ( Madhubala) to leave his son Salim (Dilip Kumar) and utters these lines- Agar aisa na hua to Salim tujhe marne nahin dega aur hum Anarkali tujhe jeene nahin denge.
Raasta dikhana sehel hai, par raaste par chalna bahut kathin- Nargis Dutt was the epitome of strength, courage and will power in Mother India. When burden after burden fell on her shoulders, she ultimately succumbed before god and cried these words in front of the temple. She was simply powerful, moving and inspirational.
Babumoshai, zindagi aur maut uparwale ke haath hai. Usse na aap badal sakte hain na main. Gulzar is par excellence and his dialogue from the film Anand brought everyone to tears. When Rajesh Khanna dies in the film, his voice plays over the tape recorder uttering this simple philosophy of life.
Pushpa, I hate tears. This was one of Rajesh Khanna's most memorable lines from the film Amar Prem and created hysteria just like the super star himself.
Aap ke paon dekhey, bahut haseen hain, inhen zameen par mat utariyega, maile ho jayengey. Raj Kumar's dialogue delivery was legendary. Be it this film or another, no one could or can second him.
Kitne aadmi the? What can anyone say about Sholay? The entire film was replete with iconic dialogues from Basanti's ( Hema Malini) to Veeru's, but it was Gabbar Singh's ( Amjad Khan) this dialogue that remained with audiences.
Mere paas maa hai. This dialogue narrated by Shahsi Kapoor in Deewar is still used today colloquially. Maa (mother) was the dominant force in Hindi cinema during the 1970's and Salim-Javed knew how to capture the mood, theme and emotions of that era with this one simple yet powerful line.
Sara shehar mujhe Loyan (Lion) ke naam se janata hai. Ajit Khan, commonly known as Ajit had his own, peculiar style of delivering dialogues. Amongst the many hit ones, this one is Ajit's most memorable one.
Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hai. Amitabh Bachchan said these lines first in Don that were later duplicated by Shahrukh Khan in Farhan Akhtar's remake of the original. This same dialogue was uttered powerfully by both Big B and SRK, doing full justice to Salim-Javed's words.
Rishte mein toh hum tumhare baap lagte hain, naam hai Shahenshah. Big B's baritone voice coupled with a power packed dialogue just did it for fans in the film Shahenshah.
Hum jahan khade hote hai line wahi se shuru hoti hai. These lines were meant only for Amitabh Bachchan. Most actors today in a way of tribute to the legendary actor, truly say these lines, be it at award functions or in their acceptance speeches. Big B has truly set the trend for every aspiring and established actor.
Agneepath Agneepath Agneepath. Big B immortalized his father's (Harivansh Rai 'Bachchan) poem in the original Agneepath. At the end of every verse, Amitabh would repeat the words Agneepath Agneepath Agneepath and till date, this is considered as one of his most famous dialogues ever.
Mogambo Khush Hua. Amrish Puri's dialogue from Mr. India is colloquially used even today to express feelings of happiness. Mogambo ne such mein sab ko khush kiya with his performance and dialogue delivery.
Tareekh pe tareekh, tareekh pe tareekh, tareekh pe tareekh milti gayi My Lord, Per insaaf nahi mila. Sunny Deol in Damini was exemplary and this dialogue that he utters in court sends shivers down the spine. Today also, when things get delayed, people always use these lines Tareekh pe tareekh very casually.
Mere Karan Arjun Aayenge. Rakhee truly believed that her dead sons, Karan and Arjun would surely return to take revenge on thakur. Such was the power of the mother that Karan Arjun actually came back from the dead and defeated the villains. What a simple dialogue can do!
Ek Machar Aadmi Ko Hijda Bana Deta Hai. This cult dialogue from Yugpurush is seen as one of Nana Patekar's best. In prison, Patekar entertains his fellow inmates with these lines where he makes mockery of man.
Aap toh purush hi nahi, mahapurush hai. Although Andaaz Apna Apna was a flop in its time, the dialogues became so popular that every movie buff had by hearted the entire film, in spite of the film's fate at the box office. And Aamir's repetitive dialogue- Aap toh purush hi nahi, mahapurush hai, kept everyone in splits! The film went on to become a cult classic largely due to the dialogues, courtesy Dilip Shukla.
Kya kar raha hai yaar, mard ban, be a man. Dil Chahta Hai was another cult film that inspired the youth and worked very well for audiences. When Aamir tries to cheer a heart broken Saif, unknown to Saif, Aamir is actually mocking him and his love. This dialogue seems to have become a part of everyday life, especially when a man refuses to stand up for what's right. Such is the influence of Bollywood!
Hum aapke hain kaun. Madhuri Dixit and Salman Khan asked this question to each other in Sooraj Barjatya's biggest hit- Hum Apke Hain Kaun. Although the film had many memorable dialogues, it is this particular one that brings out the relationship between Salman and Madhuri in the film, making it a favourite.
Koi baat nahi senorita, aise bade bade deshon mein, aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hai. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge needs no introduction. It was historic and a benchmark for film makers looking to make a romantic film. SRK and Kajol became the most wanted jodi in Bollywood. The songs, story line and the chemistry between all the characters set this film apart. But dialogues need a special mention. When Shahrukh cutely says Koi baat nahi senorita, aise bade bade deshon mein, aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hai to Kajol on their European sojourn, little did anyone know that this film would make history and break all records.
Aata Maajhi Satakli. Ajay Devgn's dialogue from Singham was retained by director Rohit Shetty for his next, Bol Bachchan. Literally meaning now I've lost it, has become a term commonly used today. Dialogues like these are not restricted to films alone and have become popular with the masses.
Kehte hain ki, agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaaho to puri kayanat usey tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai. In his puruit for love in the film Om Shanti Om, SRK says this moving and poignant dialogue that becomes one of the highlights of the film. It's meaningful because it explains how destiny eventually brings Shahrukh and Deepika together in the film.
Thappad se darr nahi lagta saab, pyar se lagta hai. Dabangg broke all records and was a super hit at the box office. This film was Sonakshi Sinha's debut vehicle and she was so convincing that she became a rage post Dabangg. When she utters the dialogue- Thappad se darr nahi lagta saab, pyar se lagta hai to Salman, it sends ripples down the spine.
Ek baar jo maine commitement kardi, us ke baad toh mein khud ki bhi nahi sunta. Wanted was considered as Salman Khan's come back film and it did wonders for Salman and all his fans. This dialogue is repeated every now and then and has almost become a trade mark for Salman.
All is Well. All's Well That Ends Well and 3 Idiots ended on just that note. Through out this feel good film, when anything went wrong, Aamir urged everybody to say All is Well and it worked like magic! The mantra worked positively in the film and has influenced audiences in a large way. It's become a common term when anything goes wrong.
Main apni favorite hoon. How can this dialogue not find mention? Bebo in jab We Met set the standards high for her fellow contemporaries. It was dialogues such as these that made the movie believable and something everyone could relate to. This dialogue is super cute and it's so Kareena Kapoor!
