Deewaar - Dialogues to use in daily life

A friend commented on how he liked my post on Jab We Met and how I should do more of such posts :) Thus, this post. It's from one of my all-time favourite movies of Amitabh Bachchan - Deewaar (1975).

The beauty of this movie is that almost every dialogue written by Salim-Javed is cult-like. And, most of them can be used in our daily interactions. Allow me to illustrate below:
  • Jo 25 saalon main nahi hua, woh aaj hoga - Can be used when you propose a new idea at work and your boss says but this has never happened in the history of this organization!
  • Main aaj bhi pheke hue paise nahi uthata - Can be used if someone throws money at you but also for other items such as books, pens, etc. - you get the drift :)
  • Kya tumhe lagata hain tum yeh kaam akele kar sakte ho? Ji nahi, main jaanta hoon main yeh kaam akele kar sakta hoon - Can be used if someone questions your capability to do a particular work - be it at office or at home.
  • Maa prasad samajh kar de rahi hain, tum mithai samajh kar kha lena - Can be used if you ever have to distribute prasad to an atheist who might be hesitant to eat it.
  • Kya tum chahati ho main bhi wahan se bhaag aata? - Can be used when someone questions your stickiness to a project/task.
  • Mere saath toh meri kismat hogi Dawaar saab - Can be used anytime, anywhere :)
  • Doston ke naam bhi hua karte hain - Can be used when you meet someone who almost immediately tries to get friendly & chatty.
  • Jao pehle us aadmi ka sign leke aao jisne mere haath par yeh likh diya; phir tum jahaan chaho, main wahan sign karunga - Can be used when someone asks you to sign a document at work :)
  • Aaj khush toh bahut hoge tum - Can be used anytime, anywhere :)
  • Aaj mere paas bangla hain, gaadi hain, paisa hain...tumhare paas kya hain? Mere paas maa hain - Can be used to defend your intangibles (family, good health, peace of mind) against somebody's tangibles (house, car, net worth, etc.)
These were just some of the dialogues which were easy to recall and apply :)

Aah! You can relate all these to appraisal related interactions too :)
Loved the intangibles piece
