മാപ്പ് - Maapu is ‘sorry’ in Malaylam. And what makes the scene from Manathe Kottaram so hilarious is that this Malayalam word is quite similar to the English word map. The chuckles start as soon as Philomena’s character misunderstands what the travelling salesmen is saying. His further explanations lead to more misunderstandings and it just goes downhill from there for the poor man!
മാപ്പാക്കണം – maapakanam
ഒന്ന് ക്ഷെമിക്കു – onnu kshemikku
Please forgive me./Please let it go.
