FUNNY PANNI

I was reading the newspaper yesterday, with one ear tuned to the television, and I kept hearing some Thamizh dialogue like "Enga amma appa sethupoittaanga, naa anaadha" (My parents are no more. I am an orphan). Sounded like excerpts from a Thamizh movie, and then came on the song, "Naanoru Sindhu Kaavadi Sindhu". I have watched Sindhu Bhairavi many times, but just so I could catch it again, I raised my head to see when it was being telecast again. And there's this visual of a pig walking away into the sunset! Was zooked about what was happening!

Babe: Pig in the CityToday, I saw the same promo again, which starts off like "Indha Sunday unga veeettukku naan varreeeeeeeen" and realised it was not for a Thamizh movie, but for the dubbed movie, BABE: Pig in the City! I couldn't control my laughter! Imagine a pig speaking in Thamizh, and finally singing the "Naanoru Sindhu" song. It was a riot, no less!! :-)

Vijay TV is reaching new heights in hilarity! They have been proving themselves right from the Jackie Chan dubbed movies ("Daai, ennada pannre? Mmm?? Naa voodu kattren!") to playing romantic songs like "Thottaal Poo Malarum" for two dinosaurs mating (promo for Jurassic Park). I think they also played some Rajnikanth songs as backdrop to some Jackie Chan movie.

On the other hand, I changed my pre-conceived notion about the dubbed Kaun Banega Crorepati 2, again on Vijay TV. Nizhalgal Ravi, who has dubbed for Amitabh, has done a pretty neat job (he only sucks real bad when he speaks English) with the pitching and intonation to suit the original.

Vinesh,

Gives me one good reason to subscribe to VIJAY TV which comes in Direct TV here.!

My crib is the stupid TV serials where people cry..cry...cry...all days..every day.!

Programs like this ( dubbed audio) will definitely make people laugh even if the movie is boring.!

LOL :) Pig in the City.!! Nanoru sindhu.!

In your opinion, what are some of the funny programs on TV there? I know only of Giri-Giri-Station in Jaya. Anything else?

Do we have something like the old Nayyandi dharbar.?

I am reading a lot about Nizhalgal Ravi, etc. I'll have to check it out.!

Vinesh said...

@Narayanan Venkitu: YOu're right. These movies are funny compared to those cryathon megaserials!

My favourite program on Vijay TV is Lollu Sabha (Wednesday 21:00 IST) Other funny programs: Super Ten on Sun TV (mondays i think) and Comedy Bazaar (Jaya TV sunday ohhi)hmmm...

Vijay Ramamurthi said...

Chancee ellaa...I wanna see that movie.

Earlier they used to dub all the hindi serials in tamil, the problem was the same person used to give voice for a lot of characters across serials, ellam engayo ketta mathiri irukkum :)) Sooper comedy.

*Samo Hung gets into the bus, and the conductor asks, enge ponum, he replies - rendu Teynampet signal.
*The heroine says OH SHIT, and it is ADE KADAVULE in Tamil.
*Palli Varudu Palli Varudu...and that was when Dinosaur is chasing the blonde!!

Jeevan said...

Yesterday I watch dubbed Kaun Banega Crorepati 2, on Vijay TV, it is very interesting the boy abishake wins 6,00,000. Like this in Tamil Codiesvaran come again it will super. Vijay TV’s English movies will be nice, especially Jackie Chan movies joke will be nice to hear in Tamil.

Vinesh said...

Vinesh said...

vasanthi said...

yeah even I watched kaun banega y'day.though tettibly missing amitabh in the orignal-nizhalgazh ravi lives upto the tamil audience expectatio

Shrinivas said...

Well the Vijay TV has some Great Graphic Trailers of their serials...but nothing last more than a month...well the funny TV is Vijay TV, the most haunted TV is SUN TV, the news like, Dr.Ramdoss's Grand daughters r studying in Maiter Dei (cbse)delhi with english and hindi..no tamil there...Great News from Jaya TV,

Narayanan Venkitu said...

Super 10! LOL :) Did you watch the TITANIC episode..!! I was laughing.! Yeah, I like it too.!!

Used to enjoy 'Nayaandi Dharbar' Yugi-Sethu.! Wonder if he is doing any such programs now.!

Thanks for the other programs. I'll check them out.
!

maha said...

yes anna, the ad was very very cute and touching.. i somehow think the emotions, luv and other expressions potrayed in animal movies are more realistic than our usual films.

Vinesh said...

@Vasanthi: Only those with set top box can enjoy the original Amitabh I guess..

@Karan: SunTV-JayaTV fight is another big comedy story :-)

Vinesh said...

@Narayanan Venkitu: Last I heard about Yuhi Sethu, he was working in some foreign film...

@Maha: Enakkennamo adhu romba comedy-aa theriyudhu...maybe cos it's in Thamizh, and we're not used to seeing such stuff :-)

sai thilak said...

I like all those dubbed versions of chinese movies. KBC - i think tamil version is not that much good.

Einsteinophile said...

Heroine: (replies) aamaa

Vinesh said...

@Sai Thilak: I can watch those dubbed movies to a point, after which it becomes too tedious :-(

@Einsteinophile: Hahhhahah! Did that come in the movie really? Tooo muchhh ..LOL

ioiio said...

Lol at einsteinophile..

That was right on top!!!!

keerthi said...

KBC2 is really good on Vijay TV. I gave up watching TV, for nearly a year, and now i've come back to it because of this programme.

Of course, Nizhalgal ravi has done a fairly decent job, not screwing up the dubbing. But the voices given for the participants, have to be forced to speak for even the "errr" ,"mmmmm" and "coughs" thats irritating.

bout movies, long back i watched "Shangai noon" on Vijay.

Jacky :Hi Folks ! (this is in the original, thats a very simple dialogue)

In the tamil version,
Jacky : yennaangadaa machchaaanungalaa !

theres only 2 classifications. one voice for rough heroes and other for soft heroes.

keerthi said...

blogrolling you Vinesh KS.

Fathima said...

LOL. Missing Vijay TV;-(((

Vinesh said...

@Keerthi: You're right. Nizhalgal Ravi is good except when he speaks in English. Can't stand his pronounciation of the sound "aa". (The "tan" in Pakis"tan" is spoken as the standalone word "tan")

LOL@Yennaada Machaangala :-D
Thanks for the blogroll buddy! :-)

@Fathima: Why so? Out of India?

Grey Vampire said...

KBC 2...I fortunately have a set top bpx here.....

I am survivor... am not gonna give up.....I was survivor ..... keep on surviving....I never ever watch dubbed jakie movies....Really not upto the challenge...

Seems like u have gota a lota patience

WA said...

Haven't seen any of these dubbed ones. Can't wait, sounds hilarious

Fathima said...

I am in a working women's hostel. I don't stand a chance of watching a single channel continuously for more than 10 minutes. Moreover, as there r a lot of Telugu girls, I am hardly able to c my fav. Zee music too.

Somu said...

Yeah I was watching KBC2 for the first time yesterday... Ravi has done pretty good work on dubbing... If only he could focus on his English.

I think that's something most Tamil actors cannot do... except for few like Vikram, Ajit, Surya...

Vinesh said...

@Grey Vampire: Even I lose my patience most of the time, buddy. But when it's funny, it gets REALLY funny :-D

@Wicked Angel: You should check it out sometime. Yesterday's movie Babe was total fun watching it in Thamizh..

Vinesh said...

@Fathima: Oh I see! :-( But don't worry, you are not missing much. There are very few such gems on TV..

@Somu: You left out Rajnikanth and Captain from the list! :-D

Ayshu said...

Yes exactly...I too was laughing aloud when i heard tht tamil dialog of Babe....need to watch 'Pig in the City' this weekend...
Another one to mention is Jackie's movies in tamil dubbed fashion.Habbaaa....superb translations...."idhu bhagavathi vijay kiterundhu edutha thupaaki" dialog's like these are too good...Also in some movie(i don rem the name) ther will be one gundu (Jackie's bro in the movie)...and in the trailor's..we can see the song "aadi ila kaathadicha,iypasi ila mazhai varum" for tht gundu's promo...
Vijay TV has got lots of humorous stuffs and i like 'kadavul paadhi mirugam paadhi' in tht list. But lollu sabha has lost its little of its charm bcoz of non-appearance of Santhanam....But they r maintaining thier tempo...

Vinesh said...

@Ayshu: Yea, this weekend should be another laugh riot..:-D

*laughing at your additions to the list* :-D
