Barisal or Barishal or Borishal, either punchline or regional power rising. Which way does the wind blow? A distinct language aped by actors who lost the accent long ago, but now try a faux diction.
The old song from our childhood remixed…
Mogo bari Barishal..
O Monu, more sino?
DHAKAIYA PHULA BARISHALER MAIYA
“Why do you study at home? Why don’t you study abroad?”
“But uncle, I have so much respect here. Who will pay attention to be abroad?”
Shob shomoy ki shundor mayya pawa jai na.
(Can a beautiful girl always be found?)
“He has three cars!”
“How many hands does he have, that he drives three cars?”
