Hindi term or phrase: What did he say and mean?
Hello everyone,

I'm translating a script of the Indian movie titled ISSAQ.
The film itself is in Hindi and the script is in English.

According to the official script:

- Rosa, this is love. True love.
- You know you're not in love with me.
- I am.
- Oh!
- I really am. True love. Indian love. I'll prove it. Baby. Baby.
- You have to try harder than that, baby. About love you know nothing.
- Rosa! Madam . You foreigners are **time-pass***.
- What?
- Want to find the meaning of love? Of true love? Reach under.

In this scene the guy seems to be speaking in English but instead of "time-pass" I hear something like fun/fon poos ("oo" pronounced like "u" in "put"), which makes me think that he said that in Hindi.

the scene begins at 12:31

If the link above doesn't work, here is another:

the scene begins at 10:40

As far as I know "time-pass" always implies that a guy has no serious intentions about a girl, he doesn't love her and only wants to spend/pass some time (hence, time-pass) with her just for fun.

But here the guy says that he's in love with the girl (at the beginning of the scene), so why, a bit later, does he say that she's a time-pass to him?

Thank you.

A versatile word typically used to mean "finished" as in "done for" but, in a pinch, can be used as an adjective for something superb.
Context will shed light on the particular nuance used.
