This film will become of one of the enduring classics of Hindi cinema. Neeraj Pandey is one director whose second films is being awaited by more people than he himself is aware of. 

This line also shows how characters are changing in cinema. Prakash comes in to the situation room, where he finds a young boy standing casually. The boy is the hacker who assists the police on cyber crime cases. He is dressed in jeans, t-shirt and a baseball cap. Now savour this interaction;

Prakash comes in and asks his junior

"yeh bachchaa kaun hai"
"sir iskaa naam Anuj hai. hacker hai sir, cyber crime cases crack karne me.n aksar hamaaree madad kartaa hai."
"itnaa qualified hai ye?"
"sir vaise to college dropout hai lekin....Anuj"
"ye, equipment aur ye setup samajh me.n aa rahaa hai tumhaaree?"
"no sir. ye saare equipments outdated hai.n.aap log abhii bhii n series ke 3423 models use kar rahe hai.n, jab ki s series ko launch huye teen maheene se zyaadaa ho chukaa hai, I need some time. thoDaa vaqt to lagegaa."
"ye hogaa tumse"

At this point, Anuj's phone rings. He pauses to pick it up.

"hey babes! yeah. running late honey. will catch you in half an hour. ok. love you. see you."

And then he sighs and says "women" like some seasoned 40 year old would have. Now back to the conversation.
"sorry aap kuchh keh rahe the"
"ye hogaa tumse?"
"definitely. I am a dropout by choice sir."

    Another one in a similar vein would be the dialogue said by Govinda to Amitabh in Hum - "Aapne kabhi kisiko ghusaa, punch, LLaat maaraa hai?"
    or that one from Bichu where Bobby Deol simply says 'Sorry' to a rather vociferous co-passenger in a train compartment.
