It is not the age, it is the mileage

Film : Johnny Gaddar
Year of release : 2007
Spoken by : Seshaadri (Dharmendra)
Spoken to : Vikram (Neil Nitin Mukesh)
Dialogue writer : Sriram Raghavan

Sriram Raghavan in my view is the best director among the current lot. Of course this line is a take on the Indiana Jones lines from the 1981 film Raiders of the Lost Ark, where he says "It's not the years honey, it's the mileage". Dharmendra plays a Tam Brahm and thankfully not in the stereotypical Mehmood PaDosan way. 

Vikram (or Johnny) asks him if he is not afraid of keeping so much cash at home (one crore rupees). In response Seshu twists Vikram's arm behind his back and pins him down. While doing this he says, 

"koee chor uchakkaa aa jaaye to kyaa karoo.n"

By now, Vikram is pleading with a tame 'sorry sir'. Seshu releases him and says

"It is not the age, it is the mileage"

Well just another way of saying 'BuDDhaah hogaa teraa baap".
