#1. “Aree-O-Sambha, Kitne admi the?”


Starting our list is one of the most iconic dialogues of Hindi cinema from an evergreen movie, Sholay. This is one dialogue that even the kids of today’s generation know. It is one of the most frequent lines that we all use.

#2. “Salim tujhe marne nahi dega aur hum, Anarkali, tujhe jeene nahi denge”


This one is from the classic movie, Mughal-e-Azam. Prithviraj Kapoor says this to Madhubala or here, Anarkali when he is about to give her a death sentence. Imagine this dialogue in Prithvi Raj’s strong voice.

#3. “Ye qaneez Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar ko apna khoon maaf karti hai”


When Akbar gives Anarkali a death sentence, this is her reply. Mughal-e-Azam presents such strong feelings. Every character is fighting either for love or for power.

“Mere paas, mere paas Maa hai!” Shashi Kapoor
