Glib

Meaning: Speaking easily but without thinking carefully; speaking in a smooth, easy way that is insincere and shallow.

Synonyms: Slick, pat, fast-talking, smooth-talking.

In Hindi: चिकना, धाराप्रवाहसुवक्ताचिकनी चुपड़ी बातें करने वाला.

Use: Because he is an expert at dancing around an issue with vague comments and glib one-liners, you never know when to take him seriously.

Considering the way he fills all his speeches with glib promises that he never follows through on, I’m amazed that he has any supporters at all.
