    Hindi and Urdu are quite similar but Urdu has more Arabic words and Hindi has more Sanskrit words. Grammar is shared in Hindi and Urdu.
    Also Urdu is considered to be more posh.

    There's Indian Punjabi which has more Hindi words and Pakistani Punjabi which has more Urdu words.

    That's a very simplified comparison however.
