Hyderabadi language or Dakhni is the amalgamation of Urdu, Hindi and Telugu

Hyderabad is not just a city but an emotion, agree? The ‘City of Nizams and Pearls’ embraces vivid cultures and traditions from all the walks of life. Apart from its lifestyle and food, the metropolis is also known for its slang. Whether you’re from any neighbouring state, any another part of the country or from some corner across the globe, you are bound to come across some classic Hyderabadi and its phrases when you are in the city.

Hyderabadi language or Dakhni is the amalgamation of Dehalvi (Hindustani), Marathi (words like Kaiku, Nakko, Hau etc are Marathi), Kannada and Telugu and everyone finds it fascinating especially the epic one liners and some of them are quite hilarious.

There are many phrases that are the same but used in different scenarios for example the term ‘Over’ is used as something that has crossed limit, like ‘Sir over padha diye aaj or mummy over baat’an sunna diye‘. The clue here is to understand the emotion rather focusing on the words used.
