දුක තමයි

Means 'it is going to be painful/exhausting/messy/problematic etc'. Although comparatively less common, Duka Thamai Ranjanee (දුක තමයි රංජනී) is used in similar contexts. Ane Manda Sarath (අනේ මන්දා සරත්) is a slang which has same origins as Duka Tamai Ranjanee. Ane Manda Sarath is used in situations where one would say 'I don't know!'. Note that 'Ranjanee' and 'Sarath' are common female and male names which were popular in 1960s and hence very common in middle aged population.
