bolte English haiN karte desii haiN

Film : Oye Lucky Lucky Oye
Year of release : 2008
Spoken by : Bangaalii (Manu Rishi)
Spoken to : Lucky (Abhay Deol)
Dialogue writer : Manu Rishi

This hugely disappointing Dibakar Banerji follow up to one of the all time greats of Hindi and world cinema - Khosla ka Ghosla - has some interesting lines.
Lucky is a suave thief, who burgles houses but with a sangfroid that would put an aristocrat to shame. Bangaali is his aide in many such thefts. In one such scenes, he warns Lucky to beware of the educated classes. He feels that they are hypocrites who might sound cultured but have ignoble intentions underlying. As he himself puts it
'bolte English haiN karte desee haiN'
"बोलते इंग्लिश हैं करते देसी हैं "
