– A creature that is commonly seen in a Bollywood action film. The most unique thing about this creature is its ability to make the hero’s life miserable. The creature also flexes its muscle and tries to intimidate everyone in its vicinity. But sometimes, the creature is given a ‘not-so-intimidating’ name by the writers, owing to which, it is difficult to take it seriously. The audience hears its name and goes, “Is this guy for real? Come on!”
Some famous examples are:
If the name doesn’t leave a mark, what follows next should. Bulla was a part of the critically acclaimed movie, Gunda. He introduces himself as, “Mera naam hai Bulla… Rakhta hoon kulla.” Classy.
2. Pappu Pager
How do you come up with the best Bhai name in the world? You take a pet name and club it with a device from the ’90s. That’s right. Other options include Raju Floppy Disc and Munna Black-and-White Printer.
3. Chota Chatri
Question: How weird do you have to be to be named after a little umbrella?
Answer: Johnny Lever weird.
What is even more disturbing than the name is how well it rhymes with Kaju Katri. Okay, now I am hungry.
4. Maya Bhai
You have got to admit, the name ‘Maya’ is pretty emasculating for a Bhai. You can’t even say it without thinking of Maya Sarabhai for some reason.
5. Kancha Cheena
If you dissect the name and translate it from Hindi to English, it becomes Snatched Marbles. Sort of.
Still funny as hell, though!
Looking at these examples, you have to agree that Bollywood needs a crash course in Bhai-naming.
