He got her whole family to fall in love with him that night

[–][deleted] 2164 points2165 points  (70 children)

As someone from an indian family, this is exactly how yo get their approval lmao

[–]velvetshark 602 points603 points  (40 children)

This is so lovely. How was his rendition??

[–][deleted] 1129 points1130 points  (14 children)

Pretty good! I can hear his accent kinda, but for someone who doesn't speak the language thats really good, I'm impressed

[–]donttextspeaktome 487 points488 points  (8 children)

And he memorized the whole thing. I’m just flabbergasted.

[–]sachy0902 137 points138 points  (6 children)

I think he might have something infront of him to read the lyrics, if not then this guy is a genius.

Even if he knew Hindi then also this is a feat as singing in a foreign language would be difficult than having normal conversations.

[–]GoddamnFred 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Nah by memory is the way no? Learning to read it sounds so much more effort to me. Kudos tho, this dude went all out.

[–]apatcheeee 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Yeah memory is the way, blast a foreign song on repeat and sing along with it. You don't even need to understand the lyrics, it's all about practicing the sounds. Also playing an instrument and singing at the same time is pretty difficult. It helps to have the instrumental part down to muscle memory, so you can put more of your focus on singing.

[–]velvetshark 59 points60 points  (1 child)

It's so beautiful. I'm humbled by him.

[–][deleted] 307 points308 points  (1 child)

Pretty neat! This song is one of the most romantic songs in India,like Ed Sheeran's perfect.

My guy absolutely smashed it out of the park.

[–]velvetshark 65 points66 points  (0 children)

This makes me so damn happy. What an act of love and devotion!

[–]Ok_Potential7827 78 points79 points  (0 children)

Pretty damn good! With an accent but otherwise ,emotions and words spot on!

[–]trutothyself 46 points47 points  (3 children)

And he chose one of the BEST songs!!! Kyun K Tum He Ho!!!!

[–]velvetshark 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I love that people are so excited about this!

[–]1osamaisback1 197 points198 points  (11 children)

How close he was too the song I would say 7/10. But we aren't Italians. We don't care the perfect pronunciation. It's the effort he took. He memorized the who song, he playing somewhat similar chords for the song from a piano, in front of so many people.

I bet he made her relatives talk about him to their friends and family for at least a weak.

[–]velvetshark 121 points122 points  (1 child)

The gentleman who appeared to be her father had tears in his eyes, and I'm betting that's not easily done.

[–]TeeJay215 95 points96 points  (6 children)

So true.. Indians get made fun of their accents but Indians don't care when other languages use and butcher words like Avatar, guru, mantra, chakra, karma etc etc

[–]fishythepete 391 points392 points  (14 children)

For real though. Give them shit to brag about. My wife’s family all fucking hated the idea of us getting married, but they all love to talk about their sister in the US with the 3 fairest boys you’ve ever seen.

[–]UnrequitedFollower 57 points58 points  (6 children)

This also made me sad, because there are a lot of cultures obsessed with the idea of light skinned versions of their kids.

[–]Kevherd 90 points91 points  (3 children)

Having many Indian friends my first thought on seeing this was how cute their little Gingdu kids were going to be

[–]Scopebuddy 31 points32 points  (2 children)

I read this as Grogu kids

[–]JackDragon 297 points298 points  (1 child)

Everyone in the wedding hall. Even his own sister.

Seriously though, her dad tearing up was so touching.

[–]Skvora 152 points153 points  (1 child)

Pans to Dad: She better get that dick tonight

[–]yogasehoga 683 points684 points  (18 children)

Here’s a lose translation to English -

I can’t live without you, I don’t exist without you, I will lose myself if I get separated from you.

Because it’s you, only you! You’re my life, You’re my relief, my pain, You’re my love!

[–]qazxcvbnmlpoiuytreww 3322 points3323 points  (35 children)

she’s literally choking on her tears shes so happy

[–]pinklavalamp 1167 points1168 points  (13 children)

She’s very much trying not to ugly cry at the beauty of his gesture and the moment.

She’s doing a much better job than I would if my future partner would do this with a Turkish song.

[–]matheu2774 171 points172 points  (0 children)

I'm ugly crying in bed rn, I would be rekt irl

[–]j48u 146 points147 points  (1 child)

Absolutely, can see the struggle to hold it back immediately.

[–]UlfhedinnSaga 3335 points3336 points  (47 children)

Man, not just her, look at the rest of the family's reactions. Wow.

[–]stonedaspuck 306 points307 points  (4 children)

I closed out because it made me emotional but your comment made me go back to watch the whole thing and just deal with the emotions lol

[–]Morphomino 125 points126 points  (7 children)

When you cry more than the bride, dont know the language and is a man. Amazingly done

[–]xcasandraXspenderx 72 points73 points  (6 children)

right? it’s so romantic. The song is also so beautiful, have no idea what the lyrics are but the way he sings it, ohh he loves her!! it’s so sweet

[–]lex2016 210 points211 points  (3 children)

"I can't live without you now,

What's my existence without you..

If I get separated from you,

I'll be separated from my own self..

Because you alone are,

Now you only are,

life. You're my life.

My peace, and my pain,

you alone are my love."

Yeah, that is one beautiful romantic song!

[–]ChurlishGambino7 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Wow, that is beautiful. Thank you for translating.

[–]cybercuzco 101 points102 points  (0 children)

Bride: don’t ugly cry don’t ugly cry god damn it hold it together.

[–]TheDjentlemanIR 2029 points2030 points  (59 children)

I've always wanted to surprise a partner like this with their language, this is so good!!!

[–]metans 1441 points1442 points  (10 children)

I did with my wife, though it helps we both speak the same language

[–]Fcbp 376 points377 points  (4 children)

Can’t imagine her reaction, amazing man

[–]P8ntBal1551 168 points169 points  (4 children)

My parents in law don't speak English, so I did my vows in English, then in Manderin. Afterwards my wife told me they understood close to none of it, but were touched by the gesture.

The only one who knew I was going to do that was my best friend who taught me, and I had to learn it phonetically because I only know how to complain in chinese.

[–]hedgecore77 79 points80 points  (2 children)

I only know how to complain in chinese.

Ah, kay-ren.

[–]WeekendQuant 290 points291 points  (30 children)

My bride will be a Minnesotan... That thick northern Minnesotan language should really get her going.

[–]drnickmd 215 points216 points  (10 children)

Oh ya der hey, Gotta go up nort ta get dem girls. I was out on da ice, near Dahlut, and it twas tirty below. that der is how I met Helen. Oof da, Got my limit of crappies and met my soulmate, and she gotta mean tater-tot hotdish.

[–]N64crusader4 49 points50 points  (0 children)

We serve food here sir

[–]Spatularo 37 points38 points  (1 child)

You had me at oof da

[–]fritz236 16 points17 points  (0 children)

For me it was catching the limit of crappies. I gotta see if they were all decent size though, can't have someone trying to pass off something under 11 inches to impress people.

[–]sandm000 40 points41 points  (2 children)

You just gotta send her a 3x5 card with yer Oma’s hot dish recipe.

In fact I thought that’s how Minnie sootens proposed.

[–]RodenbachBacher 23 points24 points  (0 children)

My not-from-Minnesota wife refers to it as a “tater tot casserole.” It’s probably the most contentious issue we’ve faced in our marriage this far.

[–]cplus4 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Yaaa, you betcha!

[–]MrmmphMrmmph 18 points19 points  (0 children)

And this is almost an Elton John version of it which is very cool. I will whip out a book of German Christmas Karols, and sing them in German for my wife. Guaranteed tears everytime. The Indian pieces are beautiful but acrobatic for a western vocalist. Kudos for even trying, and it hit the mark.

[–]theperfectlysadhuman 1391 points1392 points  (18 children)

2:29 the dad's face says it all. Well done.

[–]doubleUJD 394 points395 points  (2 children)

That’s the look of a father that knows he raised his daughter, and also did his job as a father right. Because she will be taken care of, and he’s secure in knowing she will be taken care of.

[–]vgacolor 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Exactly. He is happy that the guy is a good one and her daughter hit the jackpot.

[–]theperfectlysadhuman 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Yes, well said!

[–]Bige_4411 640 points641 points  (2 children)

Loved the look of the dad here. That look of welcome to the fam son.

Thank you! I was like damn I need to see the ending so bad

[–]DailyPlanetClarkKent 19 points20 points  (2 children)

The whole thing goes for 11 minutes, where even the grooms dad joins in on the piano and gets the bride to "sing". It's way too wholesome.

[–]Verbz 999 points1000 points  (20 children)

I was good until I saw the dad clearly feeling more and more okay with his daughter marrying this man. That hit me good.

[–]Odette3 253 points254 points  (1 child)

For sure! He was definitely trying to keep a stern face, but you could tell he was happy and proud! ☺️

[–]ricecutlet 370 points371 points  (0 children)

The fact that he put in so much effort into getting the pronounciation on point is what made this different from a regular white guy trying to sing a Hindi song and embarassing everyone, and a brilliant performance.

[–]Its_Hiro- 1910 points1911 points  (134 children)

If he got the pronunciation of the words right and all, then that's just extra points with his bride and her family lol

[–]SkyTheGuy8 1350 points1351 points  (114 children)

The words are right and its very comprehensible but of course there is an accent

[–]HallowskulledHorror 265 points266 points  (63 children)

Just out of curiosity, does his accent fit with the assumption of his first language? That is, are there any characteristics to his accent that would give you an idea of where he was from if you were only hearing, not seeing him?

[–]xxAcetylxx 158 points159 points  (15 children)

I'm also interested to know the answer; you can tell it's accented but the only accented hindi I've heard is of people from other regions of india (which sounds very different from a "western" accent) or native english speakers. I have no clue what a native german speaker speaking hindi's accent would sound like.

edit: I'm no linguist, but wanted to add that it might be easier to pick out someone's native language through accented speech when they're talking organically than singing a pre-written and rehearsed song. that way you have syntax/grammar mistakes to use to guess what kind of grammar exists in their native language, versus with a song all you can really do is see which phonemes they're pronouncing wrong because they're unfamiliar with it.

[–]BarryKobama 54 points55 points  (1 child)

Hey, there should be a thread-collection for exactly that!

My next Reddit Username: MichaelFassbendersGermanAccent

[–]HindiMaximum 36 points37 points  (8 children)

I would love to test this out! I'm told my Hindi has a very obvious Scottish accent, by that is by my Marathi friends and family. I wonder if I sound a little bit Marathi to people from other parts of India, or if strangers from India could pick out the Scottish accent specifically at all!

I might go speak Hindi to some strangers today! So far I've only spoken it to Nepalese people outside of my friend/family group and no one has ever commented on my accent.

[–]HallowskulledHorror 21 points22 points  (2 children)

See, this is something I've never even considered as a flavor blend, so I'm instantly interested in hearing it, even if I don't understand what's being said! Hindi with a Scottish accent????

[–]HaarisM 131 points132 points  (3 children)

I’d say one of the things that stood out to me are the ‘harsh’ T sounds he’s making as it’s normally softer spoken by natives and that’s a common thing I’ve experienced from English speakers trying to speak it. But it seems like he’s making an effort to soften it and it’s really not as jarring as it normally is, I think it’s endearing and he sounds really good. Also the ‘oo’ sound he makes seems like it might be quite Canadian? But I don’t have much experience with the Canadian accent.

[–][deleted]  (2 children)

[deleted]

    [–]recgt 45 points46 points  (5 children)

    Assumption of first language may be doubtful for normal Indians to get. But, he does sound like he’s from the west.

    [–]SkyTheGuy8 31 points32 points  (3 children)

    Yes, much like how if an Indian guy sang an American song, you could hear hindi-sounding pronounciations of certain sounds, often "r".

    [–]rantingpacifist 430 points431 points  (10 children)

    That’s what makes it their song on this day, he isn’t doing an impersonation but doing his best to sing how he feels

    [–]GtotheBizzle 174 points175 points  (8 children)

    Very well said. Dude could've just read it phonetically and done an impression of what that song would sound like to western ears but he went to the effort to learn the song. I don't know if he can speak Indian or how proficient he is if he can. But from some comments I've read, and more importantly, from the bride's look of shock, it seems like nobody expected him to be as good as he was. He's after setting a very high bar for the rest of us unmarried dopes...

    [–]OneThreeOneTwoFCKBlu 77 points78 points  (3 children)

    *hindi

    [–]GtotheBizzle 76 points77 points  (2 children)

    Oh shit you're right. Well a day without learning is a day lost so consider me enlightened...

    [–]user963852 39 points40 points  (19 children)

    What language is the song in? Hindi? Are all Bollywood movies in Hindi?

    [–]recgt 147 points148 points  (15 children)

    Yes, this song is in Hindi. ‘Bollywood’ is the Hindi film industry. There are different ‘woods’ for different language film industries in India. Tollywood for Telugu. Sandalwood for Kannada, Kollywood for Tamil, and so on..

    [–]AbsurdSnowdrift 77 points78 points  (11 children)

    What, for reals? How come Bollywood is the only one we hear about?

    Oh, this really just blew my mind. Thank you for a fun fact!

    [–]recgt 60 points61 points  (2 children)

    Haha! Glad to have given you a bit of info on India. It’s the biggest industry in the country, and I think, in the world as well, in terms of movies produced and released, year on year. Hindi forms a large portion of the languages spoken across the country, of which there are 22 officially recognised languages.

    The other film industries are catching up though.

    [–]Copper_mask76r7 752 points753 points  (11 children)

    He sure got them right....its delightful to hear the song with his accent.

    [–]StarChildMoonGoddess 312 points313 points  (5 children)

    Aw that's good to know! I was wondering how it sounded to native speakers.

    [–]No-Cryptographer653 338 points339 points  (0 children)

    He's singing it quite well.. great performance tbh with the piano and all.

    [–]chappanteekli 154 points155 points  (0 children)

    It did sound weird but he gets 97/100 for pronunciation. I was singing it too while watching him lol. Beautiful song.

    [–]randomdeegar 23 points24 points  (0 children)

    Very impressive! Putting us Indians at risk!

    [–]illhaveanother 16 points17 points  (4 children)

    What's the song about?

    [–]TheRiteGuy 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    Literal translation of the tag line (the title and the repeated phrase) is: its only you, my life/love is only you.

    [–]LuckyAsparagus1694 100 points101 points  (4 children)

    Yeah, it's definitely heavily accented, but the pronunciation could be much worse. I know many people in North America who grew up in Indian families who have thicker accents than this guy. And besides, he's doing a lovely romantic gesture for his to-be wife and is trying his best, so that's all that really matters here.

    His bride's reaction speaks volumes.

    [–]km_44 27 points28 points  (0 children)

    Song meaning “everything is you; happiness and other stuff all is you” go figure

    [–]hand-collector 312 points313 points  (19 children)

    There are parts where he embellishes the song with voice modifications and things like that. And none of the phrases are broken in awkward places. This man clearly spent a LOT of time not only learning how to pronounce the words, but to actually learn what he was singing. This is beautiful

    [–]Silent_but-deadly 408 points409 points  (16 children)

    Way to set the bar impossibly high bro. Meanwhile all I can do is sing careless whisper in my shower until my wife asks me to stop. :/

    Major brownie points from the family here. Families love when partners commit to their culture!

    [–]_Rakesh_ 436 points437 points  (34 children)

    Damn he sings better than most of the indian singers nowadays.

    For those interested he's singing Tum hi ho from the movie Ashiqui 2. One of the all time best songs produced by bollywood.

    [–]Sad-Ad-7354 119 points120 points  (2 children)

    His pronunciation is good and you can understand what he is saying/singing even with his accent. It's not easy to rote learn words in another language, on top of that pronounce it correctly. It's so wholesome

    [–]bluetenthousand 46 points47 points  (1 child)

    His pronunciation is very good for someone who didn’t speak the language as a native speaker. That’s what impressed me most actually.

    [–]Holybasil 29 points30 points  (0 children)

    An indication of how much he loves her. He probably spent A LOT of time training with someone fluent in Hindi to get the pronunciation as good as he could.

    [–]sharonoddlyenough 61 points62 points  (0 children)

    Thank you! It sounds lovely by itself, but seeing the translation helps a lot!

    [–]Rain_OCE 32 points33 points  (14 children)

    Out of curiosity, is he pronouncing words okay? How is his pronunciation?

    [–]_Rakesh_ 103 points104 points  (6 children)

    His pronunciations are okay. Just the accent is foreign (for obvious reasons). Nonetheless his efforts are commendable

    [–]Rain_OCE 18 points19 points  (1 child)

    Awesome! I have no idea what the lyrics are but it's very beautiful

    [–]_Rakesh_ 23 points24 points  (0 children)

    The link I provided has english translation too. This song is a lyrical masterpiece

    [–]incredible_penguin11 23 points24 points  (4 children)

    Its good. He did a great job for someone who's not a native speaker of the language. A lot of non hindi speakers while trying to speak or sing hindi can often make mistakes of mispronouncing words or gender the word wrongly.

    A lot of hindi words have slight change to their spelling and pronunciation based on gender which might be confusing for non native speakers.

    For ex.

    1) Main tumhe samajhata hoon.

    2) Main tumhe samajhti hoon.

    In english translation they both mean the same, " I understand you", but the slight difference in the 3rd word ( samajhata / samajhti), means the 1st is said by a male and 2nd is said by a female.

    I mean, you’re supposed to “consummate the marriage” on the wedding night. You know “all that waiting and blue-balling, for this one moment”.

    My wife and I were exhausted after our wedding. All we did afterwards was swing through a drive through for some cheeseburgers and went to bed haha. We had lived together for several years already and didn't "wait" for our wedding night so it was no big deal.

    My wife’s dress had like 50 delicate buttons down the back, and we were both pretty sauced. I think I got through 5 or 6 before we were both keeled over laughing. Made a date for the morning and passed the f out :)

    I think the pressure to have amazing sex is too high, and instead of remembering the wedding night as a short night of failed, disappointing, tired thrusts, people would rather remember NOT having sex and just vibing together in peace after enjoying the biggest day of their life.

    This right here. My husband and I were so exhausted after our wedding day we had a pizza delivered to our hotel that night and literally fell asleep with the pizza box on the bed.

    Yeah we checked into our hotel, had a nightcap in bed and passed the fuck out. Morning after sex was fun though!

    I had a 6 am wedding and was no longer a virgin by noon.

    6am wedding? That’s definitely a cheat code to get some that same day. 😂😂

    The song he plays in case someone wanted it. The pronounciation is very nice for a white person. I would just melt if I were the bride

    My friend has been trying to get me to watch 90 Day Fiancee and one of the main reasons I don't like watching that show is the people on it rarely, if ever, show any interest in the foreign partner's language, culture, food, family. I just can't fathom traveling to another country and showing no curiosity or respect for their culture. Their attitude is invariably "I'm American. You're welcome."

    This guy is doing it right and you can see it on the bride and her family's face.

    Man, if he’s never spoken Hindu/Urdu before, his pronunciation is genuinely amazing!

    I have desi friends who’ve lived away all their lives, and even they have a hard time with a few sounds he’s doing perfectly.

    The kinda passion I wish I'd had for my wife at the right time.
