Dialogue-baazi

Prats has tagged me into naming my favourite dialogues from movies. Well, I'm not really a fan of the "Mere paas maa hain" school of dialogue, so my favourites are the more simple, Imtiaz Ali-ish dialogues, mostly from newer movies. Relatable yet powerful.


Lakshya
Romi's Dad - Tum jo bhi karo achha karo. Agar scientist bano toh achhe scientist bano. Agar ghaas kaatne wale bano toh achha ghaas kaatne wale bano. Warna kya faayda?

Whatever you do, you must do it well. If you become a scientist, become a good scientist. If you become a grass-cutter, become a good grass-cutter. Otherwise what's the point?


Jab We Met
Geet (to TC) - Aap convince ho gaye ki main aur bolun?

Are you convinced or should I talk more?


Swades
John - Mohan, you could have gone places.
Mohan - I am going places.


Dil Chahta Hai
Sameer - Tujhe kya lagta hai, main roz is takiye par baithta hoon?

What did you think -- that I sit on this pillow every day?


Om Shanti Om
Om - Agar kisi cheez ko poore dil se chaho toh poori kayanaat tumhe usse milane mein lag jaati hai.

Om - If you wish for something with a true heart, the entire universe conspires to get it to you.


Jab We Met
Geet - Arre hum room ghante ke hisaab se lenge. Do ghante kaafi honge na? Chalo safe side par teen ghante.
Aditya - *priceless expression*

Geet - We will take the room by the hour. Are two hours enough? Okay, to be on the safe side, let's take three.


DDLJ
Simran - Tum meri shaadi mein aaoge na, Raj?
Raj - Nahin, Simran. Main tumhaari shaadi mein nahin aaunga.

Simran - You'll come for my wedding, won't you, Raj?
Raj - No, Simran. I won't come for your wedding.


Jab We Met
Geet (to incompetent policeman) - Wardi utaarkar phek de!

Geet (to incompetent policeman) - Take off your uniform and throw it!


Kisna
Kisna - Har pyaar milan toh nahin. Judaai bhi toh ek pyaar hai.

Love is not always about being with your loved one. Being apart is a kind of love too.



Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Aditi (in tears) - Pata hi nahin chala college ke paanch saal kahan gaye.
Jai's mother - Phone par, beta, phone par.

Aditi (in tears) - I don't know where the five years of college went.
Jai's mother - On the phone, my child, on the phone.


Rang De Basanti
Karan's Dad - SMS generation hai. Char line se zyada bol do toh lecture lagta hai.

This is the SMS generation. You say more than four lines, and they call it a lecture.


Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Jai (in jail with his cousins) - Oh shit! Barah baj gaye, mujhe jana hoga!
Ballu bhai - Kyun, tu Cinderella hai??

Jai (in jail with his cousins) - Oh shit! It's 12 o'clock. I have to go!

Ballu Bhai - Why? Are you Cinderella??


Dil Toh Pagal Hai
Rahul - Dil toh pagal hai, maanta hi nahin.

The heart's crazy, it just wants its way.


Lage Raho Munnabhai
Munnabhai (after whacking the security guard) - Dono gaal par thappad padne ke baad kya karne ka, yeh Bapu ne apun ko nahin bola.

Bapu never told me what to do after getting slapped on both cheeks.


Jab We Met
Aditya - Yeh aap sab meri taraf aise dekh rahe hain, main nervous ho raha hoon.
Geet's Uncle - O ji idhar udhar dekho ji, idhar udhar dekho.

Aditya - Why are all of you looking at me like this? I am getting nervous.
Geet's Uncle - Oh, everyone, don't look at him. Look here and there.


Tum Bin
Piya - Agar sahaare ki zaroorat padegi, toh main maang loongi.
Shekhar - Main sahara nahin, saath dene aaya hoon.

Piya - If I need support, I will ask for it.
Shekhar - I am not here to give you support. I am here to give you company.


So these were my favourites. Over to you, bewdas! Name yours! :)

There are multiple of them from each of the following - Satya, Company, Omkara, Khosla Ka Ghosla and Shakti (watched it again recently.)

One from Shakti - "Is desh mein kaam dhundana bhi ek kaam hain." Amitabh replies to Smita Patil when she asks what he does for a living.

and as a true srk fan, this one's from oso,
Om- Agar kisi cheez ko poore dil se chaho toh poori kayanaat tumhe usse milane mein lag jaati hai :)

Kanan said...

JWM - the whole movie has some fantastic dialogs.

Scene at the station,
Geet - chalo phuto yahan se!
Paani wala - hum bumb thodi na hai jo phut jaaye.

:D

Scene at Hotel Decent,
Aditya - item kaisi hai?
Guy at the counter - (bends over to the back) ekdam kadak! beeeyooti! (winks)

ROFL!

anshuj said...

Cool list!

I loved some movies just for their dialogues. One such underrated gem was
Lamhe:

Anil Kapoor's girlfriend: Main Anil Kapoor (forget his char name) ko 5 saal se chahti hoon.
Pooja (sridevi): Aur main kunwar saab ko tabse chahti hoon jabse main 5 saal ki thee.

Andaaz apna apna is also up there on my dialogue's list.

Hulchul was another one:

Akshay Khanna:(breathelessly blurts) I love you.
Kareena: Uhh...
Akhsay: To aaj se hamara pyaar shuru.

-----
Akshay Khanna to Arbaaz: Bhai main ubah college gaya, fir waapas aaya. Fir college gaya, fir waapas aaya, fir shaam ko college gaya fir ...waapas aaya.
Arbaaz: Abey yeh college hai ya carrom board.
-------
Akshay to Arbaaz:( persuading him for marrying): Bhaai kab tak charpai ke dono taraf se utarte rahoge.

--------------------------------------
How can I forget Hera Pheri:

Babubhai: Mujhe to koi phone bhi nahin aaya.
--------------------------------------

Kanan said...

@Anshuj, Anil Kapoor's name in Lamhe was Viren and the girl-friend is Anita. :)

Also, in Hulchul, Jay says the carrom board dialog to Pitaji/Angarchand (Amrish Puri) not to Shakti bhaiya (Arbaaz). Sorry for nitpicking. :P

Hulchul - what a funny movie!

Angarchand: "tumhaari maa ne jo bhoot ki mehndi rachayi thi na main wohi bhoot hoon."

Angarchand: "tum kyon thooke? mera akela hi thook kaafi tha"
Servant: "sarkaar aap mere mooh mein thooke na is liye"
Angarchand: "agar magar-machh ki tarah yoon mooh faad ke baithoge to thook aur jaata kahan?"

Lucky to Jay: "arre maa hoti kis liye? mar ne ke baad kasam khaane ke liye"

Balrambhaiya to Jay: "aur haan, is mein jail jaana pade to ghabrana mat, jail sirf mard jaya karte hai"

Jay: "mere bhai saale geedad hai geedad"
Anjali: "khandan hai ya chidiya-ghar?"

Anpara ki maa: "gajraaj, gangajal chhidko!"
Another brother: "yeh lo, gangajal bhi chhidak diya aur prasad ka dher bhi ho gaya"
Veeru to Anpara ki maa: "kya ma, shaadi mein haathi ke paas daal parosega"

Kishan bhaiya: "hum kya dinosaur ki aakhri pidhi hai jo hamare baad vansh aage nahi badhega?"


The scene where Jay and Lucky sneak up to Anjali's place is hilarious.

==========================
Hungama

Radheysham Tiwari to Jeetu: "tum abhi ke abhi yahan se na-dhin-dhin-na ho jaao"

Radheysham Tiwari to Jeetu: "arre oh baawre nain! idhar aa"

Radheysham Tiwari: "main ustaad aamir khan ki baat kar raha hoon, aap kis aamir khan ki baat kar rahe hai?"

Jeetu's mom: "ab to mujhe yakeen ho gaya hai ki yeh aap hi ka beta hai"

Bholu to Anjali: "shaadi banaya? nahin banaya koi baat nahin main nakli pati ka bhi bandobast kar doonga, lekin commission lagega!"

Radheysham to Anjali: "aur tum yeh hippopotamus ke saath kahan chale?"
Anjali to Radheysham: "tumhe shayad pata na chala ho, yeh hippopotamus nahin kutta hai"
Radheysham to Anjali: "main kutte se hi poochh raha hoon ke tum hippopotamus ke saath kahan chale?"

Anjali to Radheysham: "pehle main jo dahej mein teen teen ambasador ki dikki bhar bhar ke jo sona laayi hoon na woh sood samet vaapas de do"

I'm not able to recall Raja's dialogs but the name he uses at the hotel is real funny - something like Tulsidas Khan.


I think "chain aap ko mila hume to bekhudi mili" is one of the funniest melodious songs I've ever heard/watched. :D

Geet: "lekin mera saaman to train mein chhut gaya hai"
Manager: "aaj pehli baar train wali dekhi hai... aap log ne train mein woh do do log so sakte hai aisa compartment kyon nahin liya?"
Aditya to Manager: "woh main aagli baar bataunga... chalo.. bhaago"


Anshuman: "aur yahan mujhe zabardasti nehlaya ja raha hai" (his expression is priceless)
