A lot of readers have e-mailed us asking what Kai Po Che means in English and if it’s a Hindi word.
Well, Kai Po Che in English simply means ‘I have cut’. The phrase ‘Kai Po Che’, a Gujarati word, is commonly used while flying kites. It’s a victory shot, implying that he has just cut the string of the other kite and he is the winner.
In the film, Ishaan and Ali are shown to be participating in a kite flying competition and as soon as Ali cuts a kite, Ishaan victoriously screams ‘Kai Po Che’.
Ask director Abhishek Kapoor why he decided to call the film Kai Po Che, he says “I had initially decided to call the film Ahmedabad. But I did not like the sound of that title. Many have asked me why I have titled the film ‘Kai Po Che’, but once you see the film, or hear it from others, you will appreciate the title”
The English version of Kai Po Che has been titled ‘Brothers for Life’.
