100 Most Famous Bollywood Dialogues of All Time

In a country that loves and lives for its films, the films, and more so over the dialogues, have been passed down from one generation to the next, much like an entertainment inheritance. In this Buzzle piece, we take a look at the 100 most famous Bollywood dialogues of all time.

The power of the dialogue in Indian cinema is clearly seen with examples like Jhakkas! (Anil Kapoor), Hain! (Amitabh Bachchan), Barkhurdaar (Pran), and Aye saala (Mithun Chakraborty). These, and several such one-word dialogues have become the very identity of the stalwarts of Bollywood.
Indians love their films―which is a dramatic understatement, to say the least. Indians live for their films―they love their drama, they love their songs, they love the world that Bollywood provides for them, and they love their larger-than-life dialogues. An average movie goer/movie lover will be able to quote at least a dozen dialogues without batting an eyelid, then a dozen more if he thinks a little harder, and perhaps a dozen more if he asks any random passerby.

You see what I'm saying? These dialogues are like an inheritance, passed down from one generation of movie lovers to the next. They ask to be carried with immense pride. They demand to be looked back at fondly and reminisced about. They ask that you return to them from time to time, till it is opportune to pass them on to the next generation who will happily pick them up and accept them as their own―no questions asked.

Bollywood provides a surreal, escapist world full of hope, love, romance, bromance (yes, that one's there too) drama, comic relief, heart break, patriotism ... you name it and the emotion has been etched in with the dialogues―its shining beacon of hope. From the 'Hain koi mai ka laal' to the 'Police ne tumhe charron taraf se gher liya hain', and the 'Inhe dawa ki nahi dua ki zarurat hai' to the 'Bhagwaan ke liye mujhe chod do'... these, these are the dialogues that form the backbone of the movies that we've grown up watching, revering, and imitating. And in this following piece, we're listing the top dialogues of Indian cinema that will have you go back and re-live the experience all over again.

Gear up for the best romantic Bollywood dialogues, dialogues about friendship, about what is essentially Bollywood―ladies and gentlemen, the most popular Bollywood dialogues for your picking.

Author's Note: This list of 100 dialogues is listed in no particular order. Moreover, there were several dialogues that could not be included because of the constraints that we had to work with. We would love if you leave a comment of your favourite dialogue(s) that do not feature here.

For a country that thrives on its films, this is but a glimpse of what Bollywood has to offer. Has this list got you chanting off one dialogue after the other, reminiscing the good times that you've no doubt had through the countless hours of watching these films? What can we say, we are putty in the hands of these dialogues, and we are not even apologetic ... after all, it's only a Bollywood film that can essay a melodramatic dialogue like Maar, maar isse beta, issne tere devata jaise pita ka khoon kiya hain! over and over again and get away with it ... with loud cheers, clapping, whistles, and everything...

... Welcome to Bollywood. You'll love it here.
