Wonderful Movie But I Wish It Had The Cinema Subtitles,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lage Raho Munna Bhai [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
I bought this because I saw the film in the cinema and loved it. However, the DVD version suffers from having English subtitles that are less 'poetic' than the film version. The only examples I can call to mind is changing calling someone 'Uncle' to calling them 'Dude' and changing 'Manglik' to 'My stars are cursed' but there were many others. Basically, they took a lot of the Indian flavour of the dialogue and changed it to be very English/American in style. This wasn't necessary in my opinion as, although I might not have known what 'Manglik' meant, it was obvious from the context, ditto the other changes. It quite literally loses something in this translation - but it is still a wonderful film!
