|If you are
aspiring to strike a career in the Bollywood, be it a director,
script writer or even penning dialogues, this section will be
very helpful to you for it contains the scenes and dialogues
which every film has and you cannot afford to miss it !!
|Some of the here
may be rather sexist, chauvinistic, supercilious, vapid, racist,
tasteless, offensive and emotionally backward, but we have to be
slightly sober for censorship reasons and cannot show Hindi
films in their full crowning glory
|MUST SCENES FOR
separated in childhood will always grow up on different sides of
the law. The law-breaker, however, will suddenly turn over a new
leaf before the end, bash up the villain , and be pardoned for
all his sins before the last-scene family reunion. (This is
possible only if he has a heroine)
|If the number of
heroes is not equal to the number of heroines, the excess heroes
/ heroines will die or take off to foreign country at the end of
|If there are 2
heroes in a movie, they will fight each other savegely for at
least 5 minutes
|Any court scene
will have the dialogue "Objection milord". If it is said by the
hero, or his lawyer, it will be sustained. Else, it will be
|The hero's sister
will usually marry the hero's best friend (i.e. the second
hero). Else, she will be raped by the villain within the first
30 minutes, and commit suicide.
|In a chase, the
hero will always overtake the villain, even on a bullock-cart,
or on foot
|When the hero
fires at the villain(s), he will never miss run out of bullets.
When the villain fires at the hero, he will always miss (unless
the hero is required to die)
|Any fight sequence
shall take place in the vicinity of a stack of pots, barrels,
glass bottles, which will be smashed to pieces.
involving lost+found brothers will have a song sung by the
brothers their blind mother (but of course, she has to be blind
in order to regain her sight in the climax) the family dog/cat.
The amazing thing is that these folks remember the song after 20
years in the movie, and you can't remember it 2 minutes after
coming out of the theatre.
|There will always
be one song in which heroine is scantily dressed and singing in
|There will always
be one rape scene
|The Hero is the
person who gets the woman in the end and kills everyone with
moles on their faces. The hero shaves, drinks, drives,
gesticulates and picks several fights. He normally has a mother
who seldom has a lover. He may have a moustache, but never has a
beard, unless he is in disguise or utter poverty. He delivers
his lines with minimum style, and except for those lines in
which he grimaces, he is totally stone-faced. If the hero has a
comic side to him, he says very little of consequence in the
entire film and does not die in the end.

jaan bhi haazir hai

|The heroine is the
stupidest of all Hindi film characters. She normally settles for
a man with no class, and even lesser money. She is usually a lot
younger and seriously better looking than the hero, even when
the hero is the kind whose insipid persona leaves nothing but
the looks to matter. Her father is either ridiculously rich or
pathetically poor. Any heroine who starts the film in short
skirts ends it in sarees. One who doesn't is the vamp.

pichha kyon karte ho
|Koi Dekh Lega
|Maine tumhe kya
samjha, aur tum kya nikley!
|The hero's sister
invariably has her modesty outraged. She seldom lasts beyond a
few scenes and in rarest cases lives to see the end of the film.
If there is ever a poignant scene highlighting the
brother-sister relationship, it is a clear indicator of the
sister's soon to follow death.

villain has the most fun. He nearly gets close to rape the
heroine & beats the hero, & kidnap his family in the climax.
Sometimes he gets the chance to kill them too !!!

cronies normally have quite a raw deal. They seldom get the
better women to molest, and even when they do, they have to make
do with sharing one among at least ten. They are always hammered
by the hero and his sidekick, and return to further hammering
from their 'boss' the villain. They are normally dark skinned

|Doctors in Hindi
films are of two kinds, the first is the family/ neighbourhood/
fairy-tale doctor who arrives in slums on rainy midnights to
announce high fever and death, and the second is the
'expensive-beyond-lawful-means' doctor who delivers babies,
cures near-death cases and drives all his billpayers to crime.

popular belief, there is in fact a concept of law and order in
Hindi films. Upholders of the law in Hindi films are of two
kinds, the police and the judiciary, quite as it is in real
life. The police pick up thugs and the judges let them off

|The father is
normally a symbol of outright pathos, either cringing to the
worldly demands of having unmarried daughters or the burden of
having a violent son with little ambition beyond rotating around
trees. If the father is an honest, upright citizen - he is shot
in the first few frames by the villain who has little use for

|Any widow in a
Hindi film is a mother. Anyone marrying a character actor in the
beginning of the film and bearing two children is sure to be
widowed. The sons thereafter are likely to grow up to be the
main protagonists. Sewing machine is her favourite timepass tool
and she will always make halwa for her son.

|The most nasal
voice in the cast belongs to the mother-in-law. She has usually
got a dead husband, or one who gives 'henpecked' new dimensions.
She specialises in kicking the heroine / hero's sister / bhabhi
while she is sweeping the floor. She seldom dies, but always
gets her come-uppance in the end when her husband, after years
of ayurveda and yoga regains his lost vitality, insults her in
public and forces her into submission.
