Valentine's Day Special: Outrageous pick-up lines that only work in Bollywood movies, our analysis! – And why they won't work in real life
Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in a still from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Pickup lines are fickle friends. Not everybody gets tickled by the filmi cheese you spout. Some lines are pure gold, some require you to absorb the meaning and others are downright creepy. Here are few of the latter kind, borrowed from Bollywood and what will happen if you mouth them. And girls, please beware of guys who use them…
Tujhe Aksa Beach ghuma doon, aa chalti kya? (God Tussi Great Ho)
No. Just no. In real life, taking your date on a sair of Aksa is just asking for trouble. Even if Salman Khan promotes Aksa Tourism. And what is Aa Chalti Kya? Are you a mawaali or something?
Kya aap believe karte hain love at first sight mein? Ya main dobaara ghoom ke aaoon? (Cocktail)
The guy using this line in a film is a royal in real life. Anybody who says this in real life is telling you he ain't giving up easy. He thinks he's being cute. He's expressing clear intent. Sip on that cocktail and walk away. Briskly.
Tere spaghetti jaise ghane lambe baal, olives jaisi kaali-kaali… actually not so kaali aankhen, baby corn jaisi nukili naak, cherry tomato jaise laal laal gaal, sliced bell pepper se bane honth, jalapeno se teekhi zabaan… chalti phirti pasta dish ho. (Ki And Ka)
Is he calling you a salad? Comparing your facial features to vegetables doesn't a pasta make. At least, not until he calls you saucy, cheesy or well…pasta. Gourmet chef he is not. A walking-talking pasta dish is a mess to clean up after. Is he calling you a hot mess?
Tere ko udna hai toh apun tera plane ban jayega, agar tairne ka hai toh tera boat ban jayega, agar girne ka rahega toh parachute ban jayega, neend a aaya toh takiya ban jayega, nahi aaya toh lori ban jayega… (Banjo)
It might as well be the desi cousin of Police's Every Step You Take. Less protective and more clingy, this one sounds like. Of course, there's no denying this sounds better if you lose the street flair.
Joh tera haal hai, woh mera haal hai … haal se haal mila, taal se taal mila. (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil)
Isiliye Ae Dil… Hai Mushkil. Hiley hue logon ka haal be-taal hi hota hai. Explains a lot why Alizeh friendzoned you, Ayaan!
I love you, girlfriend ban ja meri, tu aur main rock kar denge. (Rockstar)
Cutting to the chase doesn't work, in real life. Even if you're Ranbir Kapoor or a Rockstar
I wanna BB you, mail you, tweet you, Skype you. Aur agar tumne phir bhi jawaab nahi diya na, I'll poke you. (Main Tera Hero)
Keep away from people who don't take no for an answer. Always bad news. And file a case with the cyber crime cell.
Gusse se bolegi… nahin jaunga. Pyaar se bolegi marr bhi jaunga (R…Rajkumar)
Pyaar se bolna and letting this creep die is an option? Take it.
