Wink Desi names for English movies

Folks, lets help our innovative movie dubbers here in India, who dub Hollywood movies to Hindi & then rename them to some really whacky titles.

A schoolmate of mine who later went on to study his engineering at the Sabbo Sidiquee college here in central Mumbai’s infamous Nagpada locality used to talk about a theatre named Alexandra within the same locality (No idea if its still there). He often mentioned about the dubbed English movies screened there with some crazy Hindi titles displayed outside the theatre. Equally famous was Ganga Jamuna theatre near Bombay Central station which too screened movies renamed with Hindi titles.

Examples:

Dunston Checks in.
Renamed title: Ek Bandar Hotel ke andar

Night at museum.
Renamed title: Museum ke andar fans gayaa sikander

The Incredibles.
Renamed title: Hum hain Lajawab.

So folks, pick up your favourite movie (or any that comes to mind) & creatively give it a whacky Hindi title you can think of to keep this thread going.

Re: Desi names for English movies

James Bond - Tomorrow Never Dies
Jaimes Baand - Kal kabhi nahi marta


This one is something I saw long time ago. There was a cinema hall called Kohinoor in Dadar. It used to screen all adult english films and C grade Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam movies which had 'hot' scenes.

There was the poster of this English film called 'The Concrete Jungle' which was about female prisoners.

The Hindi transaltion on the poster was 'Pinjre ki chidiya, Masti ki pudiya'
