Every once in a few years, Bollywood gives us a movie that completely blows us away. It has the perfect music, the perfect cast, and the perfect story line. The movie moves us, makes us think and stirs us into a positive direction. Ten years back, director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra gave us one such film – Rang De Basanti.
Not only was the movie a blockbuster hit, it achieved a cult status very soon. It was appreciated by the audience and critics alike and was chosen as India’s official entry to Golden Globe and Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
You could watch Rang De Basanti multiple times and the film manages to overwhelm you each time.
Here are five dialogues from Rang De Basanti that move us every single time.
Zindagi jeene ke do hi tarike hote hai – ek jo ho raha hai hone do, bardaasht karte jao… ya phir zimmedari uthao usse badalne ki
Ab bhi jiska khoon na khaula, khoon nahin voh paani hai … joh desh ke kaam na aaye woh bekaar jawani hai
College di gate de is taraf hum life ko nachate hai … te duji taraf life humko nachati hai
Ek pair past mein hai teh ek pair future mein ha, tabhi toh hum aaj pe moot rahe hain
Koi bhi desh perfect nahin hota; use behtar banana padta hai
