Q26. Why does the cast talk in a poetic rhyming language?

One more question, the answer of which seems beyond my horizon - Why do all the people talk in a poetic rhyming language?

Good question, Ismile.
This movie was conceived by Prabhuji not to merely entertain, but to also culturally enrich & morally uplift the average viewer.
So the movie is replete with proverbs, witty remarks & rhyming dialogues.
It gives the international audience a glimpse into India's rich heritage in literature.
Also, the dialogues get permanently etched into the viewer's memory allowing him to relive the "Gunda" experience over & over.

Early movie shot in sync sound.. rhyming dialogues much easier for cast to memorize.
This also done so that Gunda can qualify as an epic. All major epics, and esp indian ones are written in verse.
following a simple but effective AABB or ABAB meter, Gunda matches conventional epics verse for worse
