Friday 1995 Hindi
Friday is a 1995 American comedy film directed by F. Gary Gray and starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker. The film follows a day in the life of Craig (Ice Cube) and Smokey (Tucker), two friends who must deal with various problems in their neighborhood, such as a local bully, a drug dealer, and their own families. The film was a critical and commercial success, spawning two sequels and a cult following.
Friday was released in the United States on April 26, 1995, and in the United Kingdom on June 30, 1995. The film was not released theatrically in India, but it was dubbed in Hindi and aired on television channels such as Zee Cinema and Star Gold. The Hindi dub of Friday is known for its hilarious dialogues and voice acting, especially by the actors who voiced Smokey and Deebo (Tom Lister Jr.). Some of the memorable lines from the Hindi dub are:
Smokey: "Aaj Friday hai, bhai. Aaj toh party karni hai." (It's Friday today, bro. We have to party today.)
Deebo: "Mujhe pata hai ki tumhare paas mera paisa hai. Ab de do, nahi toh main tumhe mar doonga." (I know you have my money. Give it to me now, or I'll kill you.)
Craig: "Yeh kya kar raha hai, Smokey? Yeh toh nasha kar raha hai." (What is he doing, Smokey? He's doing drugs.)
Smokey: "Nasha? Yeh toh kuch bhi nahi hai. Yeh toh sirf cigarette hai." (Drugs? This is nothing. This is just a cigarette.)
Craig: "Cigarette? Yeh toh ganja hai, Smokey." (Cigarette? This is weed, Smokey.)
Smokey: "Ganja? Haan, ganja. Ganja cigarette." (Weed? Yeah, weed. Weed cigarette.)
The Hindi dub of Friday also features some changes from the original version, such as replacing some of the American cultural references with Indian ones. For example, in the scene where Craig and Smokey are watching TV, they switch from a rap music video to a Bollywood song. In another scene, where Craig's father (John Witherspoon) tells him to use his fists instead of a gun, he says "Beta, yeh America nahi hai. Yeh India hai. Yahan pe hum haath se ladte hain." (Son, this is not America. This is India. Here we fight with our hands.)
The Hindi dub of Friday is a rare example of a foreign film adaptation that adds its own flavor and humor to the original source material. The film has gained a loyal fan base among Indian audiences who enjoy its witty dialogues and relatable situations. Friday 1995 Hindi is a comedy classic that deserves to be watched by anyone who loves laughter.
