Remember the fantastic dialogues like ‘Hum Jahaan Khade Ho Jaate Hain, Line Vahin Se Shuru Ho Jaati Hai' or ‘Aap Ne Jail Ki Deewaron Aur Zanjeeron Ka Loha Dekha Hai Jailer Sahab Kaalia Ki Himmat Ka Faulaad Nahi Dekha' from the highly popular film KAALIA? Well, who can ever forget these dhamkedaar lines which were a craze back then and are still cherished today.

Besides Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan's staggering persona and striking performance, the 1981 film KAALIA was also known for its punching dialogues. Now that the original director of the film Tinnu Anand is set to make a remake of his own film KAALIA, everyone's eager to know if he is planning to retain the same dialogues for the new version.
  
“KAALIA dialogues were a rage and they were backbone of the film. How we are going to alter it that is going to be the newness in the remake. How we change or adapt or alter, which one we keep and which one we discard, that will be decided according to the script. And that is what we are working hard on right now. You will come to know soon,” says the actor-filmmaker, who is returning to direction after more than a decade.   

Though KAALIA dialogues (which were penned by Tinnu Anand's father Inder Raj Anand) have become memorable today, one would be surprised to know that the lead star of the film Amitabh Bachchan had found them too flowery while working on the film.
   
Talking about KAALIA dialogues, Tinnu ji recalls how Big B was not-so in favour of these stupendous lines, “Amitabh Bachchan was a very big star when we signed him for KAALIA. My father wrote the dialogues of KAALIA, keeping Big B's image in mind. And at certain places, Amit ji used to say that these are very flowery dialogues. I would also have a fight with my father saying that these are very flowery dialogues. One day I went up to him and said, ‘Dad please try to tone them (dialogues) down. Try to make it a street language'. To which he replied to me, ‘Son! You have a lion as an actor (Amitabh Bachchan) in a forest of film industry. You have a lion working for you. Do not give him vegetarian food but give mutton to eat. My dialogues are mutton for him. Don't ask me to not use flowery dialogues.' And then I also thought it's very important for the film.”

Tinnu ji adds, “My father had a flair for Urdu language and when he wrote dialogues for Amit ji it became iconic not only because they were striking lines, but also because of the iconic characters speaking those films.”

Well, Tinnu ji we are indeed delightful to know discover these seemingly ‘flowery' dialogues turned iconic!
