Glamour

\Glaamar\
1 1
Adjective.
0

Definition

Used to describe a good-looking…well, glaamar boy or glaamar girl. Anyone who scores well on the ‘good looks’ front will pass off as a glaamer thaaram (glamorous star). Most common, obnoxious, yet fitting usage – odukkathe glaamer (roughly translates as impossibly glamorous).

Trivia: A word of thanks is due to our Southern sirens with thunder thighs and deep cleavages. When they dared to bare, our Malayalam newspapers described them as Glaamar Tharangal.

Usage

Babu: You saw my new neighbour? That gymnasium guy?
Balu, sadly: Yes. He has odukkathe glaamar.
Babu, with a smirk: I saw your crush, Ramani, talking to him.
Balu, sadly: Hmm...I also saw.
