hindu models/girls learning proper punjabi

Recommended Posts

My friend's brother is a producer of punjabi films.

I met him yesterday.He laughed that hindu punjabi girls who never spoke punjabi in their life now contact him almost daily just to get a small or big role in a movie.

Funny thing is they tell the producer that that they r learning both urban as well as rural/Desi punjabi and can play the role of pind di kurri as well.

There is no doubt that punjabi cinema is promoting punjabi language big time.

Punjabi language is in a continual downward spiral. Bhangra and crappy Punjabi comedy movies aren't going to change anything. What percentage of Hindu Punjabis want to be actors or singers? Less than 1%. Go to any big Punjabi city and you will see that pretty much all Punjabi Hindus speak in Hindi.

The government need to make it compulsory in all schools and fine any school which tries to ban it.

let's be a bit more optimistic.

Cinema has always played a very important role in the promotion of a language.

Bad Punjabi songs are the prime reason punjabi is increasingly becoming just a pop songs language :/

I heard that those rough Punjabi films from Lahore in the 1970s and 1980s helped to destroy Punjabi language's reputation in Pakistan quite a bit.

90% of Punjabi films are just silly comedies. 

Punjabi language has the image of violent/jatt/gandasa/donali songs and dumb comedy movies. 

We need to produce better art.

My Punjabi ain’t great but whenever I see a little of Indian Punjabi modern films, it seems like it is quite removed from real Punjabi that would have been spoken a few generations ago.

i think a Pakistani Punjabi would not understand a lot of the culture and slang.

Although they can speak fast, is this deliberate to appeal to pardesi Punjabi’s who are mostly doabi and malwai -dialect speaking ? 
 

Rather than the Majha dialect

The Punjabi spoken in Punjabi movies isn't Doabi, Doabi Punjabi is slower than the other dialects. In Punjabi movies they say stuff like "inj naa kar"  In Doaba we dont use the word "inj"  we say "idha naa kar" or "adha na kar"     In movies they also say "aa kive hoya" we dont say "kive" but say "aa kidha hoya"    etc   

The way they speak in the movies is how the punjabi news reporters speak or how the they speak at award functions etc

Absolutely. 

We also need to somehow cultivate Punjabis who will then proceed to appreciate this better art.

i dont like how some people trying to sound more "posh" overly use Hindi words in punjabi  it ends up sounding really feminine and over the top.  The casualness of Punjabi is fine. 

The way we speak Punjabi today is different to how our grandparents spoke it.

Indians can never appreciate good movies, its one of the reasons why a bollywood movie has never won an Oscar or anything like that despite being over a 100 years old. Most bollywood movies are cheesy comedies.

Punjabis really are not different to other Indians when it comes to taste!

I don't know what it is about melodrama that pushes Indian buttons.

Indians don't understand subtlety. You have to understand that the vast majority of Indians are stupid. The average IQ is 82.

Everything has to be spelled out to them in a movie.
