Great Bong Book Giveaway!

Book Kumpteeshun, more like.
All of you should know that the Great Bong is none other than a chappie called Arnab...Ray.
(Got worried for a bit? You thought it was Arnab Goswami, no? No.) It is Arnab Ray who is a writer of funny things.
Here's how you can participate in the contest. Go to the competition page on GreatBong's website where you will find that you can win a copy of his (yes, his very own!) debut writing treat, known as May I Hebb Your Attention Pliss!

The rules (more details on the contest page):

1. On your blog, provide a link to:

2. Go to the comment-space of this post and post your blog’s link so the Great Bong can go and read it.


I'm tagging: Basically Blah, IyerMatter, Good Gawde, 8ate, and Simply61 to take part and spread the words.

Here are my Top 10 Hindi fillum lines, in no particular order of awesomeness.

1. -Neeche aaja, betiiiii!
-Oopar aaja, motiiii! From 'Seeta Aur Geeta'. [Hema Malini, I love you.]

2. Yeh Teja Teja kya hai, yeh Teja Teja? - From Andaaz Apna Apna [ROFL! Crime Master Gogo]

3. Ab... goli kha. *dhishkyaaooon!* - Sholay, Gabbar Singh [No explanation needed]

4. Anand marta nahin. Anand marte nahin... - Anand [*sniffle* What. A. Fillum.]

5. Bhole, maana ladki romantic aur forward hai, par hai to khandani. - Padosan. [Yaahahaahah! Kishore Da, you are something else.]

6. Aap mere liye jagi? Aap mere liye jagi kyun? - Hum Aapke Hain Kaun [Many more cringe-inducing dialogues in this classic from beginning to end]

7. Maine cheerharan ka idea drop kar diya hai. - Naseeruddin Shah in Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro [Epic film, epic scene]

8. Aap police officer? Haaaaaahaha! Aap police officer nahin, foolish officer! EEESHHHH! - Golmaal [The whole movie is brilliant like this. Utpal Dutt, Amol Palekar awesomeness]

9. Daaga! Teja! Yeh karoron rupiya doosri tabaahiyon aur barbaadiyon ke kaamon mein lagaate raho. - Mr India [You HAVE to admire Mogambo's simple work ethic.]

10. Voh mein mast tel mein fry karke khaa gaya. - Hera Pheri [Babu Bhai and Chaman Jheengawala - How can you go wrong?]

So many other jewels to pass up on: Chupke Chupke, Chaalbaaz, Lamhe (Pallo!), Angoor etc.

Your blog has the coolest title that I have come across. And the mood of the blog is great. I like the look.

I say! Thanks, much. Do keep dropping in. 'The Great Bong Book Giveaway' and associated Hindi Film dialogues would have meant nothing to you,I'm afraid, but very kind of you to leave a comment. Thanks again! :)
