Love and money... You have mixed them both.

Jamal Malik[edit]

  • [to Latika] I will wait for you, 5 pm everyday at the train station.
  • I wake up every morning wishing I didn't know the answer to that question. If it wasn't for Rama and Allah, I'd still have a mother.


  • Police Inspector: Money and women: the reasons for make most mistakes in life. Looks like you've mixed up both.
  • Prem Kumar: A few hours ago, you were giving chai for the phone walahs. And now you're richer than they will ever be. What a player!


Is this heaven?
Jamal: [wakes up and sees the Taj Mahal.] Is this heaven?
Salim: You're not dead, Jamal.
Jamal: What is it? Some hotel?

Prem Kumar: It's getting hot in here.
Jamal: Are you nervous?
Prem Kumar: What? Am I nervous ? It's you who's in the hot seat, my friend!
Jamal: Yes, sorry.

Salim: Left a message for you at work.
Jamal: There was no message.
Salim: I definitely left a mess...
Jamal: There was no message! There was no message! There was no message! I will never forgive you!
Salim: I know.

Latika: You want to do something for me?
Jamal: Anything.
Latika: Then forget me!

Jamal: I love you.
Latika: So what? It's too late Jamal.

Prem Kumar: Final question for twenty million rupees, and he's smiling. I guess you know the answer.
Jamal: Do you believe it, I don't!
Prem Kumar: You don't? So you take the ten million and walk?
Jamal: No. I'll play.

Prem Kumar: Get a lot of $100 bills in your line of work?
Jamal: The minimum tip for my services.
Prem Kumar: Oh. Now I know why my cell phone bills are so high.

Jamal: I knew you'd be watching.
Latika: I thought we'd meet again only in death.
Jamal: This is our destiny.
Latika: Kiss me.

Jamal: Run away with me.
Latika: And live on what?
Jamal: Love...
