The Bollywood Quiz

I had in my The Dil Maange More Sequel! post mentioned that I would be coming up with something interesting in my next post. Due to some pressing issues that had to be dealt with in subsequent posts, this one got a bit delayed, but I assure you it's worth the wait :).

While I was writing on the sequel, I was reminded of a game a couple of our lovely friends had treated us to, a few years ago. Back in those days, when we were Londoners. A had actually gone all out and had come up with this 'dhaasu' (if you let me use the word :)) quiz. And his wife M had done her bit, by helping (or as some of you may call it, cheating ;-)) me with one or two answers here and there. It was girls versus the boys. The yelling and the screaming, the excitement and the arguments, oh my god! I can't stop smiling even as I write about it. It was a nail biting game right till the very end, with the girls team losing by one point, ufff..





So that glorious day inspired me to create a very little fun quiz of my own. And here it is. For all of you friends. Based on the Bollywood movie masala of 80s and 90s!

Play by yourself or make teams and go for it! And shall I say it? Oh do let me. No googling please :)
Enjoyyyy..


1. Complete the following dialogues:
a. Aaya hoon, ...................

Sumeet Nayak said...

@Neena - Why not have a superhero movie theme bday party for Malhar.
I loved the idea of a weekend quiz which is all about movies. Believe it or not, consciously or unconsciously these movies do influence us in a way. Be it the story, the actors, the songs or even the few notable dialogues like "Oye Sambha, Kitne aadmi the".
Surely this is now on my list of things to do with all my friends. Or Leena Di, how about family reunion discussing movies.

Leena Walawalkar said...

Yes Neena, have fun :-)

Leena Walawalkar said...

Stuka, Google is the answer to all our questions :-)

Leena Walawalkar said...

Sumeet, great idea :-)

magiceye said...

Could not answer a single question :(
No wonder no one wants me in their movie quiz teams :D

Leena Walawalkar said...

No worries buddy, I'll be on your team :)

Indrani said...

I knew only one: Sunny deols

Jab kisi pe padta hai na to woh Uthta nahi...Uth jaata hai"

Teny said...

I only know the answer to one question, and I am glad not to get dismissed for a zero :D

Somali K Chakrabarti said...

Failed miserably. :-)

Leena Walawalkar said...

Haha Indrani, well-tried!

Leena Walawalkar said...

Try try and try, and at last you shall succeed buddy!
Jokes apart, no worries anyway Teny, your movie reviews make up for everything :)

Leena Walawalkar said...

Somali dear, never mind! There is always a next time :)

Binod Mairta said...

Leena Walawalkar said...

Vidya said...

Leena Walawalkar said...

Thanks Vidya. Well-tried!

Rajesh said...

Very nice compilation.

D.Nambiar said...

I did have to scratch my mind and still did pretty badly. (The movie titles did bring out some memories, I must say)
But I'm sure this sounds like great fun to play when you have some company and going girls Vs the guys sounds even better.

Leena Walawalkar said...

Thanks Rajesh! Welcome to my blog :)

Leena Walawalkar said...

Hehe..yep Divya. Its a sure entertainer in a get-together. Give it a shot :)
