A punch dialogue is an ex-pression or a sentence used most frequently in the Indian film industry, especially the Tamil and Telugu film industries and is generally a dialogue uttered by the protagonist to describe his character and his off-screen ambitions in a flamboyant and grandiose manner. These dialogues have been used by dialogue writers to bolster the screen image of the protagonist and also make sure that another meaning is implicit in it which would convey the contemporary ambitions of the hero/heroine during the release of the film.

The term 'punch dialogue' does not have a literal English meaning as such, but has been used by the Tamil and Telugu film media for the past few years. It more likely refers to the fact that when the dialogue is uttered the 'villain' is metaphorically 'punched' by the protagonist who utters the phrase. The phrases are usually couplets used to highlight a specific character trait of the protagonist as relevant to the particular film scene.

Punch dialogues are specialy for the audience who enjoys movie with all their spirits and who get excited by listening to few dialogues so such a dialogue is called punchy dialogue which gets often many wistles and clappings and lot of screemings too in a movie hall...............:-)
