Rishi and Neetu Kapoor’s recent cop act in Besharam is yet another testimony of Bollywood filmmakers looking to explore the nooks and crannies of the country in a bid to capture the incredible India.

Here are a few films that have an unmistakable connection to Haryanvi dialect:

Special 26

Director: Neeraj Pandey

Identity check: Divya Dutta was inch perfect in her first release of 2013. In the heist film, she essayed a con woman, who passes off as a Haryanvi cop with her diction and flamboyant personality in place.

Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola

Director: Vishal Bhardwaj

Identity check: Imran Khan portraying someone from Haryana was unprecedented but the actor tried his best to get into the character. So much so he was spending five hours learning the local dialect.

Zila Ghaziabad

Director: Anand Kumar

Identity check: In this political action thriller, Sanjay Dutt and Minissha Lamba showcased a strong Haryanvi leaning. Both the actors worked on getting their accent right.


Director: Atul Sabharwal

Identity check: Though the story revolves around the nexus between power and realty, the burden of moral compass fell squarely on Prithviraj’s character in the film. Having auditioned for the first time in his 80-film long career, the South star played a Haryanvi cop. However, there was absolutely nothing to pinpoint the regional distinction.

Chor Chor Super Chor

Director: K Rajesh

Identity check: Full of quirky individuals who steal for a living in Delhi, almost all the actors exhibit Haryanvi traits, all the way from the ring leader to his minions. The accent is uniform across the board, right from the protagonist to the antagonist to everyone else in between.


Director: Mrighdeep Lamba

Identity check: Set in the capital city, the Haryanvi touch was undeniably all over the screen. Interestingly, the four young actors more or less stuck to Dilliwala Punjabi accent while the antagonist (convincingly played by Richa Chadda) is called Bholi Punjaban but sounded Haryanvi for the most part.

A few upcoming films that have the Haryanvi connection are:

Ram Leela: Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela is set in Gujarat but shot in Udaipur. However, going by the promos, it’s evident that Haryanvi flavour is unmistakable, especially in the tang the lead actors deliver their dialogues in.

Gulaab Gang: Gulaab Gang is all set to mark Madhuri Dixit’s second comeback and interestingly enough, the biopic-like film has a Haryanvi rock song titled Gang Of Ghosts. Though the film is set in central India, the aforementioned number was shot in Navi Mumbai.
