4. A Wednesday (2008)
I am that person who is scared to travel in a bus. I am that person who either gets trapped in rain or in a blast.
I am that person who used to doubt others just by looking at their wrists and I am also that person who is scared to gro a beard and wear a cap.I am that person who it gives a deep thought to chose a name of his/her shop for trading fearing that my property may get destroyed in a riot.
Whoever is involved in a quarrel, it’s me who is always killed in the end.Just look at a crowd of thousands & select one face.I am that person.I am just a stupid common man.
5. Anand (1971)
[Babu Moshai enters the room to see Anand lying still on his deathbed – too still. He rushes over to the bed and starts shaking him, weeping]
- Dr. Bhaskar Banerjee: I will not let you leave me! I want to listen to you for at least 20 seconds!
- Dr. Bhaskar Banerjee: Speak to me!
- Anand Saigal: Babu Moshai…
[Babu Moshai looks up with a start at his friend – then he sees a tape recorder]
- Anand Saigal: [voice played on tape recorder] Babu Moshai, we are mere puppets in the game of life and death. Whatever happens here, we do not know for it is all in the hands of the Almighty.
6. Udaan (2010)
All the little shreds of memories are scattered on the lawn of stolen moments. I’ve come so far walking on them bare feet that now I’ve forgotten where I left my shoes .
My soles were soft when I came, and they are still weak and they will remain weak, for as long as the pranks of these bittersweet memories go on tickling them. Truly I’ve forgotten where I left my shoes but now I think I won’t need them
7. Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India (2001)
- Bhuvan: Hey Gauri! There’s only one house in the village with a neem tree in the yard. There’s also a big field beside it. There’s some chickens, two cows, and three goats. And I know whose house that is! It’s mine, you silly girl! One thing before you go. Mother likes you, too!
8. Swades (2004)
- Mohan Bhargav: I’m only speaking of things I’ve experienced while living here. And that is that we keep fighting among ourselves when we must fight against illiteracy, over-population & corruption. Everyday, in our streets & homes, each one of us keeps saying their is no future of this country.
This country is on the path of destruction. If we keep saying this, we will one day actually land up there. You’ll need to do something about this. You too! Not just the members of the Panchayat but everyone in the village. You’re blaming Panchayat for your problems. But when you step into their shoes, you’ll do the same thing. This applies to me too. The dalits blame the brahmins and brahmins claim that their piety is despoiled by the dalits. The blacksmith & potter blame the moneylender. The land owners blame the peasants, but they don’t give them their rights. In what way are we great then?

If we have problems in the village, we point our finger at the State and the State at someone else. We all are finding fault with each other! But the true fact is that we’re all to be blamed. Because the problem is us. Me, you, all of us…
- Vishwa: Are you out of your mind! What are you saying?
- Mohan Bhargav: All I know is that a weaver who changed his occupation by becoming a farmer can’t even feed his family or give his children even some basic education. He can only watch his kids die of malnutrition.
9. Like Stars on Earth (2007)
- Ram Shankar Nikumbh: lf you fancy racing, breed racehorses, dammit, not children.
10. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011)
- Laila: After achieving so much, are you happy? Do you miss something? Take time out for those things that really make you happy, like cooking…
- Arjun: Ya, well that’s the plan. I will retire after 40…
- Laila: How do you know you will live till 40? Seize the day my friend!
