Kitne Aadmi The? 

Guys who can forget the best and the most classic action-drama film ever made in Bollywood Sholay and its madly famous dialogues. One of them which was an instant hit among everyone from kids to adults was “Kitne Aadmi The?” by Gabbar Singh. Pacing over big rocks with a bullet belt in hand, walking in high heel boots that made really creepy sound Gabbar Singh asks his man Kalia “Kitne Aadmi the?” The character of Gabbar Singh became so famous because of its dialogues like “pachas pachas kos door”, “kaunsi chakki ka aata khati hain Ramgarh ki choriyan” that even today some people remember Amjad Khan by his character name Gabbar Singh and no his real name.

Kaanton Ko Murjhaane Ka…

Mughal-E-Azam, another Bollywood gem that became an overnight sensation for its fantastic dialogues. From Shenshah Akbar to Salim to Anaarkali to the side characters everyone’s dialogues were really popular among people of that time. One of the famous dialogue of the movie was between Dilip Kumar and Madhubala when he says “Anaarkali ki kismat mein kaanta aaya hai” to which Anaarkali replies “kaanton ko murjhane ka khauf nahi hota”. I think you do remember that don’t’ you.

Jali Ko Aag, Bujhi Ko Raakh…

Actor Shatrughan Sinha’s most famous dialogue till date from the movie Vishwanath “Jali ko aag kehte hain, bhuji ko raakh kehte hain, aur jis raakh se barood bane use Vishwanath kehte hain”. It is still a Bollywood dialogue worth blowing a whistle for then it was in the 70s.

Rangmanch Ki Kathputliyan…

One of the deepest and meaningful dialogues from the Bollywood movie Anand was spoken by Rajesh Khanna, in a way that it remains in the memories of people even today “Hum sab ek rangmanch ki kathputliyaan hain, jinki dor uperwale ki ungliyon se bandhi hai. Kaun kab uthega koi nahi bata sakta”. Rajesh Khanna played a character of a man called Anand who suffers from a terminal disease but still believes in living his life to the fullest. Another famous dialogue of this film was “Anand mara nahi, Anand marte nahi” by Amitabh Bachchan.

Main Pehle Ek Aurat Hoon…

Mother India, the most magnificent film of the Hindi cinema that showcased the life of a woman who struggles out of poverty and becomes an idol for every woman. Dialogues and songs of the movie were so famous that they left a big impact on the minds of people. One of its most famous dialogue was spoken by Sunil Dutt to Nargis who played his mother in the film “tu mujhe nahin maar sakti, tu meri maa hai” to which Nargis replies “main pehle ek aurat hoon.” Its other famous dialogue were “meri maa ke kangan laut de Lala”, “bina murga bane vidya nahi aati”,”main beta de sakti hun, laaj nahin”.

Yeh Bacchon Ke Khelne Ki Cheez Nahi…

This one’s from the one and only Raj Kumar from the 60s film Waqt when he talks to Rehman over a dagger “Chinoy seth yeh khelne ki cheez nahi hoti, haath kat jaye toh  khoon nikal aata hai.” Waqt is one of the most successful Bollywood films of all times that had the most famous actors and actresses of 60s starring in it. Another famous dialogue of the movies was again by Raj Kumar “Chinoy Seth, jinke apne ghar sheeshe ke hon, woh doosron pe patthar nahi phenka karte.

Koi Pyaar Kare…

Okay this one from the Hindi film Bobby even after being way too long this poetic dialogue was learned and hearted by youngsters of that time“Koi pyaar kare toh tumse kare, tum jaise ho waise kare. Koi tumko badal kar pyaar kare toh woh pyaar nahin, sauda kare, aur sahiba pyaar main koi sauda nahi. Whew! I think this dialogue must have been used by many boys to impress their girlfriends back in the 70s. And then there was one more, the most well known dialogue “Prem naam hai mera…Prem Chopra said by Prem Chopra himself who played the villain in the film Bobby.

Na Sukh Hai Na Dukh Hai…

Guide released in the year 1965 has been renowned as the most successful film of Bollywood and actor Dev Anand both in India and abroad. Dialogues of Guide came out to be really famous and one of the most well known one till today is “Na sukh hai, na dukh hai, na deen hai, na duniya, na insaan, na bhagwan … sirf main hoon, main hoon, main hoon, main … sirf main” by Dev Anand.

Kaun Kambakht…

“Kaun kambakht bardaasht karne ko peeta hai? Main toh peeta hoon ke bas saans le saku” the most legendary dialogue spoken by the legend himself Dilip Kumar is from the film Devdas. Released in the year 1955, Bollywood’s one of the most successful films Devdas has still not lost its charm even in this century. Its dialogues are still remembered and are settled in the hearts of Dilip Kumar’s fans.
