Salman Khan's "Ready"

Post by indophile on Thu Jun 16, 2011 9:37 am

Some interesting comments in a review.

Ready includes some subtle remarks like “aaj pehli baar kisi aurat ne samajhdari ki baat ki hai”, a racist take on dark skin and “nazar utaarna” and the punchline: “Main zindagi mein teen cheez kabhi underestimate nahin karta: I, Me, Myself.” But Salman does overestimate his star persona. This arrogance does have its flip side.

How do you say "underestimate" in Hindi?

वास्तविकता सॆ कम आंकना
vAstavIkTA sE kam ANkA
(there is no one word for underestimate i think)

btw, have you quoted correctly above? no mention of dark skin in what salman or his character says.

My notepad was filled with radical, new lingo: dogs-n-bitches lines,
terms like khurrat, kamini, honhaar, a pun on family support and deport,
subtle remarks like “aaj pehli baar kisi aurat ne samajhdari ki baat ki hai”, a racist take on dark skin and “nazar utaarna” and the punchline: “Main zindagi mein teen cheez kabhi underestimate nahin karta: I, Me, Myself.” But Salman does overestimate his star persona. This arrogance does have its flip side.
i guess we are missing something from the context. how can namrata joshi write so slovenly? she is a very senior editor in outlook. salman's comment is sexist not racist from what she has quoted of him. i think i will tweet her.

How about "kam andaaza" for underestimate (zaada andaaza for overestimate)?
