He is saying, you are saying


Explanation:
the meaning is same for bolche n bolchis: He is saying.
In Bengali language,the second person singular number has three forms:
aapni =to express respect
Tumi =to somebody who is close one (Relative,husband/wife)
Tui = to somebody who is closest one (friend)
in third person
He= tini (to respect), se (close one)
verb changes accordingly.
here
He is saying= se BOLCHE
You are saying= Tui BOLCHIS

neutral  keshab: Perhaps you are missing the first segment of question "Bolche" which is related to "He".

He is saying vs you are saying


Explanation:
বলছে means He is saying. Like সে বলছে আজ খেলা দেখতে যাবে। (He is saying, he would go to see the game).
বলছিস means you are saying. তুই বলছিস এটা ঠিক ? (Are you saying this is right ?). But be careful this is used very informally, like within very close friends and/or very near family circle.
