Vaataavaran, Bhasha aur Vichaar

Random Trivia:
I am yet to see a versatile actor of such great caliber and fine diction as Utpal Dutt. After having watched Gol Mal umpteenth time with Desi, some of which included French wine induced dialog karaokes and in depth trivia (such as the Dahi Vada proposition by Bindiya Goswami’s lady friend but that is for some other post) my brain immediately caught the (almost) same dialog uttered by Utpal Dutt in Naram Garam:

Jaisa pavitr vaataavaran, vaise pavitr bhasha, vaise pavitr vichaar, aapke pavitr kahaan hain, aa..aa..a…apke pita kahaan hain [in Naram Garam]

Jaisa pavitr ghar ka vaataavaran, vaise pavitr bhasha, vaise pavitr vichaar, aapki pavitr kaisi hain, aa..aa..a…apki tabiyat kaisi hai [in Gol Maal]

It is his dialog delivery and superb timing that these situational comedies have become timeless.
