I hate programmes dubbed in Hindi. And I hate the fact that cable operators in CR Park have chosen to give us Cartoon Network and Pogo in Hindi, thus depriving me of the few watchable things on TV. But yesterday I was watching the 60s Batman TV show,
dubbed, and I have to say that dubbing makes it all even campier, something I thought reasonably impossible. All the jokes are lost in translation, there’s obviously no lip-sync, and everything looks even funnier. Which in this case, at least, is a good thing. The show that almost singlehandedly defined camp, and the language of internationally famous camp cinema: Deadly combination. What’s Hindi for camp, by the way?
