And those movies also influenced us in everyday life. Especially the dialogues. Some of them are still being played around. And I still remember and sometimes use them as well.
For example, Mr. Dharmedar's all time fav:
"Kutte, Kamine, Me tera khoon pi jaunga".
Well, that was considered as a harsh one those days. We children, for example, were never allowed to call a person or a human as a dog.
Another classy dialogue which was repeated over and over again in almost each and every movie:
Doctor: "I am sorry, Hum kuch nahi kar sakte hain" / "24 ghante tak hosh nahi aaya to hum kuch nahi kar sakte hain"
These days, nobody in the movies consult Indian doctors anymore. Perhaps, they are frustrated of hearing the same dialogs again and again.
And the policemen also had one:
"Kanoon ke haath bahut lambe hote hain".Mr Suresh Kalmadi knows exactly the length, and thus has been able to keep himself out of reach.
Farmer: "Me iss jameen ko apne khoon se seenchta hoon".There are no more fields or farms. Instead, there are 5 star hotels and IT companies.
Judge: "Saare saboot aur bayanat ko najar me rakhte hue, ye court is nateeze pe pahunchti hai ki muljim ko dafa 301 ke tehet faasi ki saja sunai jaye"Nobody takes there cases to the court fearing execution.
Gabbar Singh had a few super duper hit dialogues:
"Kitne aadmi the"
"Holi kab hai, kab hai holi"Kalia and Samba have retired now and Gabbar's question go unheard and unanswered.
Satrughan Sinha's all time favorite: "KHAAAAMOSHHHHHHHHHHHH".I guess he was paid per character he spoke.
Rich villain Dad to Son: "Me tujhe is jayedaad se bedakhal karta hun"
Hero to villain: "Agar maa ka doodh piya hai to saamne aaa"
Weren't they funny? I miss them. :(
