Clever. Whacky. Cheesy. Smart. Witty. Over the years, Bollywood has given its fans and followers some truly memorable lines. Anyone who has seen even a handful of Hindi films is surely familiar with such gems as “Main tumhare bachche ki maa banne wali hoon (I am pregnant with your child)”, “Yeh halwa maine apne haathon se banaya hai (I have made this halwa with my own hands)”, “Main kahan hoon (Where am I)”, and “Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhod do (For god’s sake, please leave me)”.
Most of those lines became clichés that were unabashedly repeated film after film. But there have been a few magnificent dialogues in our films that have revolutionised the way we communicate. Some of them are mouthed in real life and real situations, whether to make a pass, to crack a joke, to make a point or to impress friends. Here are some of the most popular dialogues of Hindi cinema.
