10 baap dialogues for Father’s Day

by   Shriram Iyengar

Hindi cinema may be biased towards Maa, but it has not forgotten Daddy. From dialogues to tattoos, the film brigade has immortalised our fathers in so many ways. Here are 10 iconic dialogues that pay tribute to the big man in our lives. Happy Father's Day!

1 Main dikhti hoon maa jaisi sab kehte hai ... sab kehte hai, sach kehte hai ... par main hoon apne papa ki beti. (PK, 2014)

Said every daddy's girl ever... and guys too, sometimes.

2 Rishte mein to hum tumhare baap lagte hain. (Shahenshah, 1988) 

When your dad catches you doing something you shouldn’t be doing… Yeah, you know what we’re talking about. 

3 Baap baap hota hai, aur beta beta. (Gadar – Ek Prem Katha, 2001)

At the risk of stating the obvious, Sunny Paaji makes it clear. 

4 Exam to bahut hote hain, baap to mostly ek hi hota hai (3 Idiots, 2009) 

Point to be noted, milord.

5 Agar maa ki mamta ho sakti hai ... toh kya baap ki bapta nahi ho sakti? (Satte Pe Satta, 1982)

*sniff* Bas kar pagle, rulayega kya?

6 Baap ka, dada ka, bhai ka, sab ka badla lega re tera Faisal. (Gangs of Wasseypur, 2012)

A statement to make all the dads the prouds!

7 Har baap ka ek baap hota hai, aur usse hum dadaji kehte hai. (Dhamaal, 2007)

Before we forget the baap of our baaps.

8 Main apne papa ka eklauta mistake hoon. (Aisha, 2010)

A statement that unites every proud single child in this country.

9 Sorry toh maine apne baap tak ko nahi bola jab meri galati thi ... ab toh na meri galati hai aur na aap mere baap ho. (Raanjhanaa, 2013) 

Just in case the neighbourhood uncle drops in with a snarky comment. 

10 Main to kehta hun aap purush hi nahin… mahapurush hain, mahapurush. (Andaz Apna Apna, 1994)

*bows* To every father out there! You da man!
