"You're crazy...just do it and keep quiet"


Explanation:
This phrase is in Hindi/Urdu and I have translated it to the best of my knowledge. It is a rather colloquial phrase. I chose "keep quiet" fo "chup karo" but it could also be translated as "shut up". Hope this helps!

You crazy person, stop (doing this) and shut up!


Explanation:
pagal = crazy; bas karo = usually used to indicate 'enough' or used to request a person to desist from doing something; chup karo = shut up...

Does that help? This sentence probably came in the context of the writer getting tired of someone's chatter or other such deed and asking him/her, plainly or else jokingly, to shut up.

Enough, you fool - will you just shut up!


Explanation:
I have chosen the admonitory context, which I think is closest to what the speaker wants to say. Hope it suits you.

O Stupid, stop it and be quiet


Explanation:
This is certainly Hindi and your translation would be 'O Stupid, stop it and be quiet'. There is no element of scolding in this sentence. The illocutionary power of the sentence states that it is said in a loving, caring context.

You idiot, stop it and be quiet


Explanation:
pagal is crazy in the true sense, but in this context it can be less serious and therefore be idiot or stupid.
