Without further context, it is difficult to give an accurate translation. When languages are written in Western characters, it becomes difficult to identify words. However, here is what I can make out.

'ghuthi' - poss. a reference to a puppet
'bandari' - female monkey
'nache taal betaal' - dances to the beat or rhythm.

I think it could be an insulting reference to someone's behaviour. On the other hand, it could quite simply be a description of an event.

Hope this helps a little.
