Bheem from Mahabhartha is a raging bull and this was the oft-used phrase by Yudhishtra to placate his brother in the TV version of the Mahabhartha. He would carry a gada (mace) and hence gadadhari :) Eyes glued to the TV, this soap opera was perhaps the most watched opera in the history of India. Such an impression has it left on us 70-80 born desis that this phrase has its own place when talking to an angry friend.

Usage

Yaar saale ki tang tod doonga!
Shant gadadhari bheem shant, woh bhi mauka milega.

Cool down; simmer down. The term was popularized by the film "Jaane bhi do Yaaron" which has a hilarious spoof on the epic tale of Mahabharata.

Usage

Boy 1: Saala I don't like how he's talking to me. I'll thulp him...!
Boy 2: Shant gadadhari bheem shant. Let him go, he's an idiot only.
