Shahrukh Frooti Ad: Meaning of Lyrics

with 77 comments

I saw this latest Frooti advertisement featuring Sharukh and simply fell in love with the music, lyrics and concept. Lyrics, though hummable are not entirely clear in meaning.

Aamaletiya stavin crata pile pila,
Aamaletiya merlucchiya pile pila,
Inlorpotamanta tora tut tut tiya,
Less so less in nina amichiya strala,
Aamaletiya stavin crata pile pila – 4
Aameletiya merlucchiya…

I assumed these lyrics are not garbage and tried to de-cypher. What I saw is they are a mix of Japanese, Spanish, Swedish, Hindi, Italian words.

Beautiful and lovely mango, to us highly starving people, you will act as pile of batteries to recharge,
Beautiful and lovely mango, you are partly wicked, you will act as pile of batteries to recharge,
We are salivating greatly agreed, from unpleasant fighting people, we become happiest person in the world,
As it is getting over, like a little girl, it is emitting eternal love,
Beautiful and lovely mango, to us highly starving people, you will act as pile of batteries to recharge – 4
Beautiful and lovely mango, you are partly wicked…

Aam: Hindi, Mango
Letiya: Urban Lingo, Beautiful person, lovely heart
Stavin: Short for starving
Crata: French, might/strength
Pile: Spanish, batteries
Pila: Italian, Pile
Mer: An affix meaning “part”, used in chemistry
Lucchi: Hindi, wicked
Lor: Singapore Lingo, Agree
Pota: Uraban Lingo, Salivating
Manta: Spanish, Great Size
Tora: Japanese, Quarrel
Tut-tut: Urban Lingo, Disapproval
Tiya: Urban Lingo, Happiest person in the world.
Nina: Spanish, Little girl
Ami: Italian, Love
Chiya: Japanese, Eternal
Strala: Swedish, To radiate light

Disclaimer: This is just my view. Chances are, this might be entirey wrong.

  24. That was a great explanation. You took your time to decypher it. Great.


    April 17, 2013 at 5:09 pm

  25. hats off…


    April 17, 2013 at 2:40 am

  26. With respect, this most certainly isn’t the case. :)

    The Hokkien (hence Singaporean) suffix “lor” rarely comes in the beginning of the sentence, nor in the middle of a word; it’s a bit like how people add a ‘na’ at the end of sentences in Hinglish (although it obviously doesn’t mean no; you were right in its meaning)

    I think it’s more likely that they tried to make Hindi sound Mediterranean somehow, by interspersing Italian, Spanish and other Romance-language cognates.


    April 14, 2013 at 8:21 am

    • U might be right akshay…what have done is broken down it as ‘in lor’ ‘pota’ ‘manta’.
      Lor coming in end ‘in lor’ and found it to akin to ‘ok lor’ ‘fine lor, which a friend of mine picked up after a semester at NUS and used to bore us with. :)
