zindagii me.n kis kambaKht ko maaloom hai ki vo kyaa kar rahaa hai

Film : Bazaar
Year of release : 1982
Spoken by : Najma (Smita Patil)
Spoken to : Her friend (Not known)
This film stands out for some great music by Khaiyyam. Shocking that it did not get any award, though it was nominated for the best music director award. Ironically it lost out to RD Burman's first ever Filmfare award, which is another story altogether.
Najma is living with Akhtar (Bharat Kapoor) who asks her to arrange the marriage of his rich patron in Hyderabad. So they all go to Hyderabad from Mumbai to look for a beautiful and poor girl. Their search narrows downs into Shabnam (Supriya Pathak) who is in love with Sarju (Faarooque Sheikh). Shabnam's family prefers the richer patron to the poor Sarju. When they go to Shabnam's house to take her measurements for the jewellery, Shabnam starts bawling and screaming. Najma's friend is shocked at the turn of events and asks Najma accusingly
"aap ye sab kyaa kar rahee.n hai.n Najma?"
Najma responds with the very philosophical one-liner
"zindagii me.n kis kambaKht ko maaloom hai ki vo kyaa kar rahaa hai"
"ज़िन्दगी में किस कम्बख़्त को मालूम है कि वो क्या कर रहा है"
