This is inspired by Alisa, our new commentator who is trying to get a handle on the films. And also likes Aamir, thus the orgy of Aamir at the end this. It’s half tongue in cheek, just an excuse for fun songs, but also serious, these songs will really give you a leg up on some common words.
“a”=male noun ending, “i”= female noun ending. Thus “ladka” and “ladki”
“Tu”=informal you, used for children, close friends, etc. etc. “Meri/e”=Mine. “Main”= I. “Teri/e”=Yours Hai=am/are/is (also variations like “hoon” pop up sometimes)
Hindi numbers: 1=Ek, 2=Do, 3=Teen, 4=Char, 5=Paanch, 6=Cheh, 7=Saat, 8=Aath, 9=Nao, 10=Dus
Dus=10, one more time!
Pyaar=general love for a child or a spouse or a parent, Ishq=sexy love, Mohabbat=poetic passionate love. Aur=And
Dil=Heart; Deewana=Crazy; Pagal=also crazy
Hum=Me/us; tum=you; Akele=only/single/lonely
Des=Land; Desi=People of the land; Pardes=foreign; Pardesi=Foreigner; Jaana=go/travel; Nahin= No/Not
Grand finale!!!! Stupidest song ever, but by golly you will remember what “Ishq” means after this.
