Examples of typical Mumbai-isms

* Yeh mehengai bahut costly ho gaya hai aaj kal

*Aaj aapun ka bad luck hi kharaab hai

*Arrey uska room kya mast hai.. paanch bada bada kamra hai
(room is a synonym for an apartment, while kamra ofcourse is room)

*yeh aaj kal tension ka bahut magajmari hai

One encounters these and such like on a daily basis, but dare not smirk..

ekdum serious se sunne ka


  1. Hey Kaveeta!
    That was cool. Cracked my sides laughing!! Yeah typical Mumbai-isms! And then there is one most famous & most common – “Mistake is wrong!”

  2. Anonymous,

    it would go ‘Bola na.. mistake se wrong ho gaya’

    One should actually have a compilation of these and read it on one of those ‘bad luck hi kharab hai’ days of our lives.

  4. Masala film?? har har ..I like that.

    Chance by luck is so whacky.

    I guess it would go like’ maine iska liye try nahin maara, buss chance by luck ho gaya”

    but ‘chance’ would be more ‘channas’:)

  5. Kaveetaa,

    Your article reminded me of what my part time bai said ‘mera aadmi ka chinese ka bizness karta hai’

    He has a roadside stall of chinese food.
