Beewii ho... to har masalaa TeRhaa hotaa hai

Film: Shatranj ke Khilari
Year of release : 1977
Spoken by : Mirza Sajjad Ali (Sanjeev Kumar)
Spoken to : Meer Roshan Ali (Saeed Jaffrey)
Khurshid (Shabana Azmi), Mirza's wife, is constantly angry at Mirza's long hours spent on playing chess. She is very demonstrative of her displeasure. On one such occasion when her feathers have been ruffled, the Mirza goes in to soothe her. When he comes back, Mir asks him if he managed to soothe his wife and remarks
"baRa TeRha masalaa hai"
"बड़ा टेढ़ा मसला है"
Mirza heaves a long sigh and says
"beewii ho meer saahab, to har masalaa, TeRhaa hotaa hai"
"बीवी हो मीर साहब, तो हर मसला टेढ़ा होता है"
I am sure many of the married men would agree with this.
