What you will say that Hindi word phoonk in English?
I think the translation of the word phoonk into English will be blow, like to blow ash or dust. I think the movie is named phoonk because of the customary usage and blowing of ash (vibuthi) and kumkum, to cast spells etc.

How do you say 'huckleberry' in Hindi?
'Huckleberry' is a colloquial, that is to say, 'casual' word used to describe a number of different fruit-bearing shrubs of the genus Gaylussacia, all of which are native to the 'New World', or North America. Since the huckleberry is not native to India, nor even Asia, any Hindi speaking person, upon seeing, tasting, smelling, etc., a huckleberry would probably use the English colloquial word 'huckleberry'. Like English, Hindi is an aggregative language, 'borrowing' words from other languages. For an example of aggregation in English; the 'English' word 'pajama' is actually a Hindi word; 'pyjammy', describing, in Hindi, any light, loose-fitting garment, such as those used, by some of us, in which to sleep or lounge.
