Houston, Ik Problem Aa Gayi Si:
Nine Hilarious Posters That Translate Iconic Lines From Hollywood Into Punjabi





The popular and creative Facebook page, Minimal Bollywood Posters have nailed it again, this time with a bunch of posters depicting scenes from Hollywood films with iconic lines - wait for it - translated in Punjabi.

The effect is nothing short of hilarious. The posters they titled Brrrruahhwood retell famous scenes. You need to see The Joker telling his famous 'Why so serious?' line in Punjabi as 'Ghabranda kyu pya ae?'

Brilliant! But the wording is just a tiny bit strange - for the segment of the diaspora that hails from the Doab region of Punjab!

We also need to translate or remake all these classic movies into Punjabi.

3: Raj (Canada), September 05, 2014, 11:28 PM.

How about translating "How I met your mother" into "Main Tuadi BeBe Nu Kidan Takarya"?

Exact word-for-word translations never work. They lose their impact. In most of these cases more imaginative translations or equivalents in natural Punjabi are required.

There was the old war movie (the name I can't remember). When the enemy attacked, a soldier told the other to duck. "Duck!" How would you translate that?. How about in "Third Encounter ...", when the aliens land, the dialog went like this: "This is not a 'drill' but a real thing". How about "Holy Cow"? Or the dialogue when a father kisses his daughter good night with the words, "Sweet dreams, honeypie."
