Professor | Now Available in HD
Come in. Hello, sir. Come in, Mr. Khanna. Come in. I have to go to the college a bit early today. I see. Any response from Darjeeling? Yes. It came in the morning mail. What does it say? Will I get a job as a tutor? I am very sorry, Mr.
Khanna. But they need an aged person for that post. Not a young man. Why object to my being young? Listen to this. You’ll understand. She wrote, “I have liked whatever details you’ve written about Mr.
Khanna. But you’ve not written one thing which is very important to me. If the man is over 50 years of age, then send him over quickly. But if he’s below 50, then, don’t send him at all.” -Hear that? What a crazy woman! -I don’t understand, sir.
What now? I have tried so many places, but to no avail. This was my last hope. I feel like tearing up my degree. Did you know, it’s a lot of effort on the veins to produce anger. But hardly any to smile.
Why waste this energy? -Come sit, I’ll order some tea. -No thanks, sir. -I’ll go now. -Listen… I haven’t just taught you for four years… I have always felt close to you. Look. Don’t feel awkward..
. -But if you need some money… -No! Not at all. I am grateful that you feel so close to me, sir. Goodbye. Last time you pawned your pen. What have you brought now? -Nothing. -I don’t mind giving you cash.
But we have some rules too. If you had a job… I would have given you money gladly. But otherwise, how’ll you repay me? -Sorry to have troubled you. -Never mind, son. -Is that you, son? -Mom! How did you.
.. Wait… You have fever! No. It’s just that I was sitting near the fire. Now tell me, did you go to him? That college friend of yours who is a mill-owner now. -Deepak? -Yes, the same chap. Sure I went.
We chatted and had a great time. Meaning he too couldn’t give you a job anywhere? Maybe he wants to keep me a friend, not an employee. I went to my professor too. Wasn’t he trying something for you too? Any response? Yes, mom.
They liked everything about me, except my youth! They wish to hire only an old man for that post. Don’t worry. Today or tomorrow, you’re bound to get a job. Come, have your dinner. -Come. -Come, mom. Come on.
Have you eaten, mom? I have eaten enough. There was a function next door. She sent some snacks across. I was very hungry… So I ate the whole lot. Don’t fib, mom! You get goodies and you don’t keep some for me? Now, eat! -Didn’t I say no? You eat.
-I will if I am hungry. Today the professor really fed me. I have eaten a whole lot of snacks. -Really? -Yes, yes. -I don’t believe it. -Oh mom! Do I lie to you? Look, my stomach’s full. Sorry, mom. Open your mouth now.
Come on, mom. What is it? What’s the matter? You have been pretending till now. You do have fever! What’s wrong, mom? Mom! Pritam’s mother… Pritam’s mother… Pritam’s mother… -What’s happened? -Be with her.
I’ll get the doctor. -Professor… -Who? You? What is it? You look worried. My mom’s very ill, sir. She is unconscious. Unconscious? Then did you call the doctor… -I don’t have… -Why didn’t you say so before? Take this and get a doctor.
.. -Get a doctor. -I thank– Oh, go fetch a doctor! I have written a letter to Sitadevi. Read and post it. -Now go! -Thank you. Mr. Khanna, I think your mother has T.B. -T.B? -Yes. No, doctor. How can that be? Please check again.
How can she get T.B? Suddenly? It’s not sudden, she has been hiding her ailment till now. -It has gotten pretty severe. -Please save my mother. I’ll do whatever you wish. I have nobody except her. Save her.
Don’t fret so. She can recover. Send her to a good sanatorium. Sanatorium? But how can I send her? I do not have a job these days. I am very sorry, Mr. Khanna. But like I said, her condition is pretty severe.
And it’s not good for her to live in a place like this. If you want her to live, then it’s vital that you shift her. -Mother’s life? -Yes. Shift her to a sanatorium as soon as possible. Okay. -Take this.
-This? Thank you. -What did the doctor say? -Doctor? If you want your mother to live then it’s vital that you shift her. I don’t mind giving you cash. If you had a job… I would have given you hundreds.
I am very sorry, Mr. Khanna. But they want an aged professor not a young one. They need a senior person. Senior in age. Senior in age. “Oh someone will come” “Someone will come to our village” “He will be bonded with love” “Someone will come to our village” “Oh someone will come” “Someone will come to our village” “He will be bonded with love” “Someone will come to our village” “These black eyes flutter like a bee” “My friends ask me The secrets of my heart” “I was so shy that I couldn’t utter anything” “The colorful atmosphere has come” “He won’t be able to Look into our eyes directly” “Someone will come to our village” “He will be bonded with love” “Someone will come to our village” “Oh someone will come” “Someone will come to our village” “He will be bonded with love” “Someone will come to our village” “I see the reflection of my Beloved in the mirror of my heart” “When my graceful walk is inebriant” “Then my day is very pleasant” “My heart beats when I See this pleasant atmosphere” “Wherever I look, I can see my beloved around” “He will make my dreams come true” “Someone will come to our village” “He will be bonded with love” “Someone will come to our village” “Oh someone will come” “Someone will come to our village” “He will be bonded with love” “Someone will come to our village” “The sun and the moon are the light in our path” “My eyes are waiting To see this unknown person” “God knows whose Dream will come true” “On whose hope the magic Of love is cast on us” “The one who will Take away our sleep” “Someone will come to our village” “He will be bonded with love” “Someone will come to our village” “Oh someone will come” “Someone will come to our village” “He will be bonded with love” “Someone will come to our village” It’s Auntie! Let us hurry.
.. “If someone wants to call me a wild one…” “Let her go ahead” “I am surrounded by love storm…” Who are you? Auntie’s here… “Let her go ahead” “I am surrounded…” Hello.
Hello. -Nina. -Yes, madam. -How did this man come here? -Man? He sure is a man. I ask you, in my absence how did a man enter in here? I don’t know. I was studying. I just got here. I am Prof. Khanna. -Oh.
-Yes. You called me here for tuitions. -Hold on. -Yes. You have some grey hair, but… no wrinkles on your face. The thing is, I am a great follower of Yoga. I perform all the ‘Asanas’, postures, like this.
-So, you know yoga too? -Yes, absolutely. Which guru taught you? Guru? No. I followed books. Our ancient writings. -Our ancient literature? -Yes. But it’s all in Sanskrit. But of course. Sure. You mean you know Sanskrit too? -Yes, I do.
-Very good. I need not find a Sanskrit scholar. Take him to his cottage. Please rest. So, you’ll be teaching us Sanskrit. Sanskrit? -Sanskrit? -Yes. Aunty is forcing it down our throats through you. Deliver us from evil, O Lord.
My child, may we proceed to my cottage? This way please. Which is mine? Come along, you’ll know soon enough. This is your cottage. Go in with style. It’s furnished very well. Thank you. Thank you… Just a moment.
-What is it? -Not this one, but that’s your cottage. But you said this one was mine. Yes, I did say that. Weird girl. First she says it’s this one. Then that one. Go in. Be comfortable. -Thank you. -Bye.
That was a close call. The fool shunted me to the wrong cottage. Why did she do this? Is that you, darling? Thief! Thief! Thief! Help! -Thief! Thief! -Don’t yell. I have caught you. Want to show he’s innocent? -But.
.. -Stop blabbering. My name is Hanuman Singh. -I’ll break your bones! -But listen… Shut up! But I have never seen him before. You doubt me for nothing. Oh sure! I doubt you for nothing. You have always taunted me about my height.
Shameless! Good for nothing! Impertinent! I’ll see to your old lover today. -Why you, is this your house? -Hanuman Singh. -Close the doors, eh? -Hanuman Singh. Who’s calling? What happened? It nearly did, madam.
This fool had hardly shut the door when I came here. What! Shut the door, from the outside? Inside. And the windows too. What? But I had left you at the other cottage. Then why close the windows here? Everyone else can leave! Didn’t you hear me? Go! -Me too? -You wait.
Good job! I think it’s over now. He’ll be got rid of! And Sanskrit too! I don’t trust young men. That’s why you were called. -True. -But now, this very moment… you too will have to prove this behavior of yours.
Understood? But of course. Then tell me, how did you come here? I told you, there was somebody in the bathroom there. Impossible. -I saw it with my own eyes. -Impossible, I say! Without my permission, nobody can put a foot in there! Foot I can’t say, but I did see an arm.
Why didn’t you look into it properly? Why come here? You see that arm belonged to a lady. -And– -And what? And it was a bare arm. No sign of any clothes on it. What! How did such an arm land there? A very tempting evil arm, ma’am.
That’s why I ran from there. I usually keep such arms away. -Is that the truth? -Of course. In fact I hate women! That’s why I am still a bachelor. -Now go to your cottage. -Yes. -And don’t ever come this way.
-Yes. Hanuman Singh. -Yes, madam? -Bring him at 6:30 tomorrow morning. -I’ll explain what your job is. -But of course. Of course. So you hate women, eh? Yes, Mr. Universe. You hate women that’s why you were closing all the windows? This I’ll explain to you tomorrow, Mr.
Universe! Go on. Good morning. You are 40 seconds late! Well… I… I… When you yourself aren’t punctual how will you teach the children? I’ll be on time henceforth. Listen carefully to your job. There are two small kids.
Because they’re not strict with them at school you’ll tutor them at home. -Two small children? -Yes. -I am paying you a good salary. -But of course. Now go and tutor them. Hanuman Singh, my car! And listen, I may come late in the evening.
.. but these girls should be back by then. Teach them Sanskrit. -Sanskrit? -I am paying you a good salary. But of course, you are. Sanskrit, okay. Come, sister. Let’s go. Excuse me. Excuse me. Why did you deliberately play a prank with me? What have you against me? -Aunty has given you some orders! -I’ll follow them later.
Look. I have come here to work. Not to pick animosity with anyone. I just want to live in harmony with you. Live in harmony? -By teaching us Sanskrit? -That I’ll have to. Aunt’s orders. Sis, he wants to be friends.
You’re a slave, so go and carry out Aunt’s orders! Come. Is it? -What’s your name? -Bunty. Bunty. And yours? -Tinu… -Tinu! Do you know why I am here? To beat us! Beat you? Who said that? Our elder sister.
She says, Simple Simon will beat you more than Aunty does. Simple Simon? She calls you by that name. Your sister is lying! -I’ll never beat you. -Really? Never! Now let’s see your progress. Simple Simon, eh? Jolly good! I got it.
Greetings, priest… -Greetings, child… Greetings… -Greetings. -Greetings… -Greetings… -Yes, please. -Do you have Sanskrit books? Yes. Which author do you need? No. Something small, to learn the language.
-You mean Sanskrit for children. -Yes. That’s the one. -Here you are. One rupee please. -Okay. Thank you. Is there a good tailor here? Yes. Two shops away, A-1 Tailor. -Thank you. Change? -Yes. -Here.
.. Yes sir. -Thank you. A-1 tailor’s? “The sun’s rays…” [Regional language] [Regional language] Aunty will be here soon. And what if he refuses to join in? Then we’ll be in trouble. It’s all arranged for him.
We’ll have to pull him in. Try your level best. Okay. What are you doing there? Come here quickly. -Coming, sir. Here we are. -Sit down. What can we do for you? You’re very sweet to me today. What’s up, eh? Didn’t you say you wanted to be friends with us? With all my heart and soul.
We’re not in the mood for Sanskrit now. Meaning you want to get me fired? No, sir. There’s still time for Aunty to come. By then, we’ll be in the mood for it. And what if you’re not? You’re also suspicious like Aunty! We’ll never get along! How boring the old are! This old man is pretty agile, child.
Believe me. My foot! You can think of nothing else, but Sanskrit! -Your so called young heart is… -Not old at all. Are you saying you’re young? Not by face, maybe. But at heart, most certainly. Feeling young concerns the heart.
-Not age! Never. -Really? Then we’ll soon know that it’s age that matters. The old hardly live! “This youth is so colorful” “These eyes are so intoxicated” “Eyes are lost in this love” “We are so restless” “It is our era” “I was young once” “The world was crazy for me” “I was someone’s lover” “There was someone Who used to love me” “It was our era” “I was young once” “These freaky insane Eyes also see the dream” “Everything is changed now” “Everything is changed Now love is so common” “This youth is so colorful” “These eyes are so intoxicated” “Eyes are lost in this love” “We are so restless” “It is our era” “This youth is so colorful” “Life is ours till we breathe” “Till we are alive Everything is ours” “Great, old man” “At least now try To understand my heart” “At least now try to understand My heart through my eyes” “I was young once” “The world was crazy for me” “I was someone’s lover” “There was someone Who used to love me” “It was our era” “I was young once” “Spend your life happily” “Listen to your heart” “Hide and sit somewhere, We won’t believe you” “Hide and sit somewhere, We won’t believe you” “It is all old news” “This youth is so colorful” “These eyes are so intoxicated” “Eyes are lost in this love” “We are so restless” “It is our era” “This youth is so colorful” “I agree that somebody Is crazy for me” “Really?” “My heart is still young” “Great, old man.
“ “Don’t stare like this, Look into my heart” “Don’t stare like this, Look into my heart” “Drop this stupidity” “I was young once” “The world was crazy for me” “I was someone’s lover” “There was someone Who used to love me” “It was our era” “This youth is so colorful” “These eyes are so intoxicated” “Eyes are lost in this love” “We are so restless” “It is our era” “It was our era” “It is our era” “It was our era” “It is our era” “It was our era” “It is our era” “It was our era” So! This is what you’re teaching these young girls! Well, I.
.. You said, that you hate women! Right? -Madam! -Hanuman Singh… Yes, madam? Take the Professor to the station before 7 a.m. -Station? -Enough! The train leaves at eight. We don’t need you anymore. -Listen– -I don’t want to hear anything.
And as for you… Come inside! Now how will I keep you in a Sanatorium, mom? How? Bye, professor. You’re leaving Prof? You’re very happy that he’s leaving? You won’t leave, Prof. These girls… the more they hate you, the more I’ll pay you! You both go and get ready to go to college.
Take the Professor’s luggage back to the cottage. Please go. Teach the children. Funny old bag. She fires you, she… You won’t be here for long. Why are you so hell bent on seeing me leave? Scared, eh? You laugh a lot, don’t you? This is nothing.
The day you’ll leave here horribly humiliated… I’ll die laughing! We’ll see when that day dawns. But before that you’re going to bawl! The one to make me cry hasn’t been born yet. -Really? -Let us see who sheds tears, sir.
Me or you? We’ll see. We’ll see. Add more. Go on. Are you cutting onions for salad, or brinjals? Cut them finer. They make cooks out of us here. I was studying in Mumbai nicely and I landed here! So? Join a college here.
Those desires died with my parents. If I talk of college now, I’ll become a martyr! There’s a tyrant over me! Listen, Nina… -I’ll just come. -You can’t go! I have a period off. I’ll return for the recess.
Return my foot! If Aunty finds out what will I tell her? There’s the colonel’s butler! -Kamal.. -What if I tell Aunty? Don’t worry. I’ll come soon. Kamal… Kamal… -Tailor, is my coat ready? -Yes, sir.
Some work to be done on it. Very strange design, sir. Will you wear it both ways? Yes. One side, as a youth and the other, as an old man. -Really? -Yes. -Any objection? -Not at all. -May I try it on? -Sure.
Come. Come on. It’s tight at the hips and loose at the waist. What did you do? -It’ll be fine. Don’t worry. -How can I not worry? I have to come again and again. There’s always something wrong. -Be careful from now on.
-It’ll all be seen to. -When will it be ready? -Two days. Okay. I’ll come at 2 p.m. on Wednesday to collect this. Very well, madam. Sorry. Very sorry. It’s very nice, but make it a bit short. Say this much.
I will surely do it. I too, will come on Wednesday, at about 2 p.m. Very well, sir. Come here, please. -Yes, madam? -Where’s my body-scarf? -Body-scarf? -Yes. I had left it in there. Where is it now? Why do you allow such people in here? He’ll come to get his coat.
And… To hell with that! I want my body-scarf now. How can I go home without it? There’s one way out, some dress material. Excuse me. -Who me? -Yes. -What’s that on your throat? -A song, ma’am. A renowned singer used to attract deer.
I attract beautiful girls. I meant this scarf you’re wearing. I think it’s mine. Possible. Seems a romantic one. It came away with my coat. Give it to me nicely, or, I’ll call the police? Call them. They’ll take us both to the police station and note your name and address.
Then your folks will know that you’ve been to the tailor-shop… -No, that won’t do. -Why? Why so scared now? If I call the police they may lock you up in jail. Why this sudden spurt of concern for me? -You’re not.
.. -Impertinent! Anyway, now only the police can make me give this to you. Listen… Listen… Have pity on me. If I go home without it, what will they think? Nothing. They’ll just slap you and make your pink cheeks, red! Please return it.
I beg you! Just pleading will not be enough. You’ll have to shed tears and fall at my feet! Beast! I would rather be smacked than fall at your feet! Never! Won’t cry, eh? Excuse me… -What is it? -I’ll return it on one condition.
-You’ll have to give a receipt. -Receipt? Yes, by signing your name. What’s your name? -I… Vimla… -Then write it down fast. Go on, write. Pritam… Don’t jump out of your skin. That’s my name. Come on, write it.
-What are you staring at? -Your face is familiar. -I have seen you before. -You must have. -Where? -In your dreams! What do I write? Today, had you not… returned my scarf… do you know what would’ve happened to me? “Do you know what would’ve happened to me?” -Do I sign at the bottom? -Yes.
-Yours… -Yours… -Vimla. -No! Nina. -How do you know my name? -I heard the tailor call it out. He called you Nina. Write it down. Thank you. Here’s the receipt. Here’s your book, that’s my pen, and here’s your scarf.
Give me this material. I’ll give it to the tailor. Gone? Returning from college? -If you want a lift, hurry! -Why so much rush? Let us go, driver. Why get angry, child? Old age… Let us go, driver. Get down! I said get down! You are 20 minutes late.
-This Nina… -What did she do? Where had she gone? Answer me, woman! -Nowhere, ma’am. -The truth. Or else, I’ll have your hide! Today this girl has… something has happened for sure. Yes. It has happened.
What’s happened? -Why don’t you tell her? -Me? Auntie… I… Actually, they’re all late because of me. I had gone into town. Thought I would take a lift while returning home. I am an old man after all.
En route I stopped the car to buy a few things. Is that the truth? Of course. We were late at every step because of me. I swear. Don’t ever do this again. You don’t understand. All sorts of thoughts come to me.
Tyrant! You misunderstand. I admit she’s very severe. But this could be due to love. Love? For us? Didn’t you see? You came 20 minutes late, and how worried she was. Whom does she have except you? Maybe she didn’t wed because of you.
Who’ll marry a dictator like her? Men keep away even from her shadow. I don’t agree. She’s educated. Has money too. Must have been pretty when young. If she wished, she could’ve married. But if she had married, who would’ve taken care of you? She has been our guardian just for the past six months.
Understand? Six months? Yes. Six months ago our parents were alive. With them, we were very far away from this hell! Praise her all you want, but not in our presence. We hate her, and you too! Thank you! Simple Simon, indeed! He thinks he understands Aunty.
He’ll know tomorrow. What have you cooked for us? The usual. Fried tomatoes, salad leaves and barley water. -It’s always barley water. -Yes. It’s always barley water, and rabbit food. Are we animals? -Enough.
-Fill it up. -But how will I drink… -You will drink it all. You won’t leave a drop. I have heard everything you said. You don’t like barley water. You like fast and spicy food. Even your mom relished it.
She came as a guest in our house… but she soon snared my brother and he wed her against our wish. Don’t abuse a mother, who is no longer in this world. You’re taking after your mother. I’ll teach you such a lesson.
.. -Auntie– -Shut up! What do you want to say? -He… -He what? He thinks you are very beautiful. He really admires your looks. -What! -Honestly. He said you must’ve been lovely when young. How dare he! I’ll.
.. I’ll… Who is it? -A man or a woman? -A man, our Professor. Professor? Call the Professor at once! It’s good riddance to our Simon! Hurry up and eat. You have college. We don’t want it! We’d rather go hungry! -You wanted to see me? -You dare do this? Yes? You like my looks.
Is this true? Wrong. Absolutely wrong. Then are those girls lying? You told them I must’ve been lovely as a girl. -I was explaining… -Of youth and beauty? You were discussing such lowly topics? I was just explaining how much you love them.
But how are my looks concerned? When I was explaining, I had to tell them… that in your younger days you could’ve married into a good family. But if you did, who would have taken their mother’s place? Don’t take that woman’s name! I have not taken her place, but their father’s.
I was wrong. You can only take the place of a father. Please sit down. Thank you. Those girls must’ve abused me for you to convince them about me. No, they didn’t say anything. I just did it like that.
Like that? What do you mean? I just felt like praising you. But why did you feel like praising me in this way? Don’t really know. Just felt like it. Henceforth don’t let your feelings get the better of you.
But of course. I won’t praise you again, ever! May I go now? I have to teach. Yes, do. Excuse me… Praise me if you wish to. But don’t talk of beauty, youth… -I hope you understand. -But of course.
I understand. What’s all this? Why aren’t you studying? Weren’t you fired today? Fired? If you go, we get holidays too. What holiday? Sis said you were going to be fired today. So that’s her plan, eh? Well, well.
Come along. No holidays for you. Take your books out. Come along now. Simple Simon. Am I? -Have my jeans been altered? -As per your instructions. Keep the jeans in the cabin. Try them on. You’ll be happy.
-You, sir? That day you… -Here’s your material. Material? But I had given it to that lady. And she gave it to me. You understand our relationship now? Of course, I do. That coat of yours is ready. -Hey, listen.
.. -Yes. Dear, Nina… Hello! You? And here? Wherever you go, I go too. -You dare do this? -Peace! Cool it. You don’t want this note of yours to be shown to your folks, do you? Come with me. Come on, I have to tell you something very important.
Come. Here’s your coat and the change too. Thank you, very much. Get me that other parcel too. Right away, sir. What do you want? I want your sweet company. Meaning? I don’t mean for a lifetime but for a few moments.
You’ll walk out of the store with me. -Never! -Yes, you will. -I say– -Cool it.. Your other parcel, sir. Thank you, so much. Thank you. Come, dear. Come. Don’t tax your brain. This has been ongoing since our previous birth! -But of course, sir.
-My clothes! Where are my clothes? Here they are. Will you give me my clothes? Cry, plead… you may get them. Me? And plead? You’re nuts! I stand with my head bowed. Anything can be granted, when the request is made, lovingly.
Really? Don’t give it. Bye. “I am going” “Leaving the world behind” “Don’t ask me where I am going” “Don’t ask me where I am going” “You are so beautiful” “Even the sky has bowed down” “See our love story has begun” “You are so beautiful” “You can leave my eyesight” “But you cannot leave my heart” “I have been cast with The magic of your love” “It’s not my fault if I Couldn’t keep a hold of my heart” “You are so beautiful” “Even the sky has bowed down” “See our love story has begun” “I am going” “Leaving the world behind” “Don’t ask me where I am going” “Don’t ask me where I am going” “I am going” “It doesn’t matter if my eyes and my walk stray” “Where will I take this heart with me” “The journey of love is so lovely” “Doesn’t matter if I am lost in the journey” “I am going” “Leaving the world behind” “Don’t ask me where I am going” “Don’t ask me where I am going” “You are so beautiful” “Even the sky has bowed down” “See our love story has begun” “I am going” Why are you exercising your fingers for no reason, madam? This is the real thing.
.. -You… -Bye, bye… Bye, bye… -Prema… -Yes, madam? -Put on the lights. -Yes, ma’am. You may go now. Did you think of me? What? Why should I think of you? I mean, did you want to see me? Yes. Please sit down.
You’re feeling good here, aren’t you? Yes. Absolutely. -I am going out tomorrow morning. -I see. Are you reading something? No, not really. Look… What was I talking about? That you were going out. Yes.
Nina’s father, my brother, died… in a plane crash with his wife. They lived in Mumbai and had a lot of property there. It is in the name of these kids… it’s under litigation however. Yes. I am going to consult a lawyer on this matter there.
It may take a few days. I think I can trust you. I am honored that you should trust me so. Keep an eye on those girls. A stern eye! But of course I will. May I go now? Yes. Look… About me… I mean, how I was a few years ago, don’t mention it -.
..to the girls, right? I won’t. Don’t give a thought to it. Yes, okay. All this money in the open? My son has sent it. 300 rupees. He draws a good pay now. Just think… I am old now. Where will I spend all this money? But he.
.. he won’t listen. He loves me so much. Honestly. And he writes, that the moment he gets leave he’ll come here. Good. -Please keep the money. -I will. He’s one in a million. I could go on looking at him.
Is he handsome? He had come here to drop me. Maybe you didn’t see him then. I’ll show you his photograph, wait. Here you are. Well? Isn’t he lovely? Yes. Very! -Hanuman Singh. -Yes. -Have you taken all the papers? -Yes.
Yes. Keep an eye on them. But of course. Sister… Dear child, the college is closed… but not the mind. Come on, study Sanskrit. Really? Madam, do you want to bond us together? Go ahead. Do it. What’s all this about ties and bonds? The wings of a bird are tied with flowers.
Who is he? -I don’t know him. -That’s a good joke! Actually, she wrote to me and called me here. Read it. No. Now do you believe me? So! That’s how it is. -Did you all understand? -Bless you, dear girl.
Understand, my foot! -Actually he… -Who is this man? Why did you call him? Because, she has fallen in love! -What! -Not with me. But with my voice! Oh! So you have a melodious voice! Then why wait? Sing, sir.
I shall sing… Tell me, shall I sing from my throat, or my heart? With your head! Here… Enough. Enough. Bless you. Bless you. What will this man take to scoot from here? He won’t scoot from here, but he can be gotten rid of! -What? -Your head! “Oh beautiful” “You are the fragrance Of flowers and pain of thorns” “Looking at you my heart says that” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “Oh beautiful” “You are the fragrance Of flowers and pain of thorns” “Looking at you my heart says that” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “Life has taken a beautiful turn” “My tale could become real” “Life has taken a beautiful turn” “My tale could become real” “When the breeze sighs” “My heart is set ablaze” “Looking at you my heart says that” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “The world has become beautiful” “God has made everything beautiful” “The world has become beautiful” “God has made everything beautiful” “The river is shining like a mirror” “My dream girl is Looking in that mirror” “Looking at you my heart says that” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “I am trying to look into your eyes” “I am separating you from yourself” “I am trying to look into your eyes” “I am separating you from yourself” “Don’t ask how crazy I am for your love” “It is higher than the sky” “Looking at you my heart says that” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “Oh beautiful” “You are the fragrance Of flowers and pain of thorns” “Looking at you my heart says that” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “Today I might fall In love with someone” “Today I might fall In love with someone” Nina.
.. I have troubled you before this. But you never cried. And today… Before this, you’ve never made me feel so uneasy. -But today… -You’re crying. I thought I would feel very happy when I watch you cry.
-But today… -Today… My heart feels very heavy upon seeing your tears. Then tell me. Who are you? Today, all I say is. I am not your enemy. Excuse me. That’s my ball. How did it get here? -Playing cricket.
-Why aren’t you careful? It just missed my head. It could’ve broken. It can’t! It’s a solid ball. Really? Let us see how solid it is. Thank you. -Snake! -Where? Where? Ouch! It’s solid all right. It didn’t break at all.
You win, lady. Now give me the ball. Learnt your lesson? I mean about teasing a girl. Sure, but after I got rapped! Forget a real ball. Even a ball’s shadow won’t cross this wall! The ball please. Thank you, very much.
Rita! -Oh, God! -Auntie… -Who was that man? -Aunty, he… Shameless girl. He was holding your hand. I was just returning his ball… Mind your tongue, girl! I understand you young girls. Take your eyes off of them, and she shows her true colors! And what about you? I told you to keep a strict eye on them.
Then how did that man come here? The girl told you the truth. The ball did come here. That was just an excuse. How could you have heard what they said to each other? I know nothing wrong took place. Rita’s a nice girl.
Such severe behavior, suspicion at every step… can ruin the best of girls. -Only love and understanding– -Keep quiet! You’re crossing your limits. Who are you to meddle in our matters? Aunt’s coming.
-Phool Rani. -Coming, ma’am. No food for Rita for two days. Keep her locked in her room. Understand? No food or water. Thank you, sir. You’re welcome. Never mind. -Will you do it again? -No… No… Sitadevi! -Sitadevi! Will you kill him? -Don’t interfere.
I’ll skin him alive! Against my orders he was sneaking food to his sister. He cheats me at such a small age? Then what else can he do? Love you? Does anyone love a dictator? Dictator? -You called me a Dictator? -Yes! He who thrashes an innocent child so mercilessly.
.. has to be a tyrant! -Get out of here! -Don’t scream! I am going. But remember this. Only tenderness and love will make these kids loyal to you. Tyranny will never do it. Never. You must’ve been pretty when young.
Could’ve married had you wished it. “I will make a house in Premnagar” “Getting ready” “I will make a house in Premnagar” “Getting ready” -Come here! -Yes. Who do you think I am? Get in, I want to talk.
Get in! Yes, of course. Of course. You called me a tyrant, why? You think I am very bad, right? I say you don’t understand me at all. Maybe. I mean, what you think of me now is incorrect. You understood me correctly before.
When? That day… that day when you felt like praising me. That day you understood me well. Possibly. What do you mean “possibly”? Why don’t you think of me in that manner? I am not a tyrant! Do you hear me? If you think me as one, then.
.. Sitadevi! Sitadevi! I said all that in anger. You’ll have to go to Mumbai tomorrow. What? -Mumbai? -Yes. The estate, which has to be transferred on Nina’s name… concerning that, one has to meet lawyers.
It needs a trustworthy man. Didn’t you say you’d be honored if I trusted you? -Yes. -Then go tomorrow. It’s essential work. I’ll join you a few days later. You will go, won’t you? Yes. I’ll go. -Normal! -Normal.
.. Mom’s fine? I can be young again. Young? -Are you old now? -No. I meant that Mom’s illness had suddenly aged me. Tell me. Is she really well? Don’t worry. She’s much better. She’ll be cured soon enough.
I see. Thank you, doctor. What’s this, son? That… That… I have to act there, mom. That’s why I bought this beard. Do you teach there or act? That’s the problem. I have to do both out there. Get well soon.
I’ll stop acting at once. Even if I lose the job. Don’t do that. You have got this job with great difficulty. Don’t fret over me. Put your heart in your work. I have put my heart into it. But I don’t like the acting part.
You were fond of it in college. -Why don’t you like it now? -That’s the problem, mother. I just don’t feel like acting. Anyway, I’ll find a way out when I go to Mumbai. -Very nice sweet-meat. -It’s from Meerut.
I have brought a lot of it for you. Naughty boy. Madam! -What are you doing here? -Dad’s going to Calcutta. Uncle will be away and you’ll be free to play! -You must be having a party then. -Yes. Tomorrow.
Was the party decided upon after seeing her or before? I won’t come. Don’t worry. He’s very decent with girls. It’s during the day. Do come. -No thanks. -Scared of Aunty? Not at all. I still can’t come.
Your friend will be with you. So why refuse? You must be scared of Aunty. I am not! I’ll definitely come tomorrow. See you tomorrow, brother. -May I go now? -So soon? Soon? It’s been two hours now. A cruel guy.
Who? The one who invented the clock! There was someone even crueler. -Who? -Who thought of duty. -There’s somebody even worse. -Who? Who made the heart. -When will I see you? -No more. -Scared of Aunty? -Not at all.
Of course you are. That’s why you’re refusing to meet. I told you I am not scared. I’ll see you tomorrow! -Luna. -Hello. -Nina. -Hello. -Rikya. -Hi, Sweetu. Nice to see you. Nina… Who are these people? Auntie, Luna, Vinod, Rikya.
.. But how did they get here? -Easy, old lady. Easy. -Impertinent! Is her blood pressure all right Nina? The point is, we’re all good friends with Nina. She had written about her visit. The two of you must come with us.
Come with you? You won’t even meet Nina! Understand? But Aunty… I think you haven’t recognized me. Talk to me. What do you want? Want? -Her! -What! And even you! -I want you to come with me. -But who are you? I have seen you somewhere before today.
-Have you also seen– -Talk to me! I mean, you’ve not seen me at all. You have seen my uncle though. The professor. He’s ill, in the hotel. -He’s ill? -Yes. -What’s wrong with him? -Nervousness. You have come here and he’s nervous there.
Since the luggage will take time, let us have some tea. -Okay. -You have not met us before. How did you recognize us? Uncle said two ladies would be coming here on their own. All the other ladies had men with them.
You resemble your uncle a lot. Of course. Only the beard is missing! Let us go. I’ll pay the bill. This is your room. Boy, keep their luggage. Hurry up. Which is the Professor’s room? This next one here.
You must be tired. Relax now. No. I must see him first. He was disturbed all night. He slept at dawn. Let him sleep. You have been with us for two hours. He may have awoken. No. I know his problem. He cannot be awake.
But what’s wrong with checking? Didn’t I tell you? He was tossing and turning, let’s go. He may awake. Come on. Go and settle down in your room while I send you some tea. Come Nina. -All right, sir? -Well done! Very good.
Very good. Here, take this. Now the other job. Understand? -Yes, sir. -Go, go now. Hello, give me room 47, please. Hello. -Sitadevi. -Yes. It’s me. Yes, me… Yes, I have just woken up. That young nephew of mine.
.. Pritam. He’s a rascal. He banged the door so hard, that I woke with a start. Pritam must have told you. He must’ve told you that I came to see you as soon as I landed. Yes. He told me, that you have both arrived.
Hope your journey was… Oh, God! What’s wrong, sir? Taking a turn, child.. I turned on my side and the phone slipped from my hand. Are you ill? It’s getting better now, child. Much better. What happened? You stopped talking.
.. Yes. She came in and the phone slipped from my hand. Where’s your nephew? I have sent him downstairs. A young man after all… -You know what I mean. -Yes. It’s a good thing that you did. But he’s a gentleman.
I fell ill the day I got here. He has helped me a lot. Went to the court, met the lawyer. -He did everything. -Really? -What are you suffering from? -Some sort of a fever. It’ll go when the time comes.
Don’t you worry. Go get ready now. You have to reach the court by 11:30 a.m. There’s still time for that. -You have to unpack as yet. -Nina will see to that. You’re ill. Somebody must be here. Go Nina.
See to the luggage. What is it? -I have got the shivers. -Shivers? -I’ll wrap another blanket. -No. Lie down quietly. Oh God! I am dead. -Oh God! I am dead. -What’s wrong? -It’s the end of me now… -What happened? I am a goner now.
.. Tea! Make me some tea, fast. Saved! -Saved by a hair’s breadth! -Here. Not this. I don’t need it anymore. Go! Do the work which you have to do. -Do it quick! -Take this. Let it be. I am dying because of the heat.
You’re sweating so much! Come, let me wipe it for you. No! Doctor said the more I sweat, the better I’ll get. If I wipe, you won’t stop sweating. Come, let me do it for you. -Now what? -The shivers. I have got them again.
Hello. It’s for you. Give me the phone. Hello. Yes. Pritam? Where are you speaking from? It’s me, boss. Everything’s going well? You have to go to the court now. Leaving you alone like this? If anybody was with me, it would’ve been very nice.
Look, today you only have to show the affidavit in the court. She can go alone. We both need not go together? No. One of you can go. And Nina will have no problem. Pritam will be with her. -Pritam? -Yes.
No. I’ll go myself. I’ll come too, Aunty. Stay here with the Professor. Hurry up. You’ll be late. Pritam must be downstairs. Why the puffed cheeks, child? Because you missed out on Pritam? No. What have I got to do with him? Then? Go and check, child.
I think the phone in your room is ringing. Well done, my boy. Listen… Connect my phone to their phone. Hello, yes… Whom do you wish to speak to? Hello… sweetheart! Is that you Vinod? What’s wrong with your voice? I have got a cold, my dear.
We weren’t offended by the old woman’s talk. We’re waiting for you at Central Park. Come over soon. I can’t! Aunt’s gone out, but there’s somebody else here. He’s sick? Give him a sleeping pill and slip out.
No, no… You’ll have to come. We’re all waiting for you. Professor… Professor… What is it, child? That was Vinod’s phone. Did you say Vinod? Yes. My friends are waiting. May I go meet them? I’ll come back soon.
They’re my bum-chums. Okay, child. Be responsible now. Go soon and come back sooner! -I’ll just change and go. -Listen… Put that ‘Do not disturb’ sign at the door. I am very sleepy. Auntie… Auntie.
.. Auntie, will not spare me… Sitadevi! Where were you? I have been waiting for ages. I had gone to eat. Come on. Come on. Mr. Lawyer… -Hello, Pritam. -Hello! -This is Sitadevi. -How do you do? -How is your uncle? -He’s still alive.
Have you got the affidavit? But of course. I forgot that at home. What did you do? But it must be filed today! There’s still time yet. Please sit down. I’ll go get it. Please sit down. Look after her.
I’ll just come. Nina. You! And here? Wherever you are, I am too. Has Auntie come back to the hotel? I have her stuck in the court. And what are you doing here? First tell me why are you here? I have asked your uncle and come here.
But you won’t tell Aunty anything about me, will you? That’s what I aim to do. You’ll tell her? Look… If you tell her, your uncle will be fired from his job. I too want the old man to be free of this hassle.
What! And what if she throws me out too? You have my house. Book it in advance for the rest of our lives. “Wait a minute” “Wait a minute” “Can you listen” “To my heart” “You’re mad when I see you” “But in my dreams So loving and caring” “Without you I cannot live” “Without you I cannot die” “You refuse to say What I see in your eyes” “Without you I cannot live” “Without you I cannot die” “From the day I saw you” “I feel like you are a part of me” “You keep coming to my dreams” “You keep coming to my dreams” “I wish you would stay in my dreams” “I don’t understand if I have Won the game of love or have lost” “Without you I cannot live” “Without you I cannot die” “You’re mad when I see you” “But in my dreams So loving and caring” “Without you I cannot live” “Without you I cannot die” “Why are you hiding Your love for me” “But I am not afraid To show my love for you” “Now the whole world knows” “Now the whole world knows” “How we feel about each other” “It’s difficult for me to Go back from this stage” “Without you I cannot live” “Without you I cannot die” “You’re mad when I see you” “But in my dreams So loving and caring” “Without you I cannot live” “Without you I cannot die” “So why don’t you Understand what I am saying” “What do you get out Of putting on an act” “My heart was saying something” “My heart is saying something” “So I repeat one More time before I go” “If you don’t believe it, Read it in my eyes” “Without you I cannot live” “Without you I cannot die” “You’re mad when I see you” “But in my dreams So loving and caring” “Without you I cannot live” “Without you I cannot die” “You refuse to say What I see in your eyes” “Without you I cannot live” “Without you I cannot die” “Without you I cannot live” “Without you I cannot die” Come on, mom.
Hurry up. We are getting late. Come on, mom. We are getting late. -Mother. -Oh god! What are you doing here? You were to take the affidavit to the court. I did go, but I was told you had left. I just followed you here.
How long could I wait? We have to go again tomorrow. Give me the paper. Yes. I’ll tell the Professor about this. Wait! You can do that later on. Look, he’s asleep. What? Then where’s Nina? Nina! Nina! Nina! She’s not in our room! No? Then where.
.. Even the Professor’s not here. Both are missing. Missing? His usual headache, must have made him go to the doctor. Which doctor? -I’ll find out. Go wait in your room. -No! I’ll wait in this room! In this one? I am so dead.
Go on! What are you waiting for? I am going… -You have come? -What? You have come early. Stand still. Good. Look at me. Beautiful. You don’t need the clothes you have. -What? -Wear this. Don’t waste my time, I am paying per minute to your agency.
I have to finish this painting by this evening. Oh! Painting! Go and change in the bathroom. The bathroom is that way! Keep your clothes there and stand where you are. Come in! -Laundry, sir. Soiled clothes? -In the bathroom.
Right, sir. -There are 7 clothes, sir. -Right. Where’s that girl? Girl? When I was going to the bathroom, she went out. Out? Out? My clothes… She stole my clothes! Thief! Thief! What happened? -A girl has run off with my clothes.
-Clothes. Rajasthani type. She can’t have left the hotel; you two go that way. Thief! Thief! -Did you see a girl in the laundry? -No. Madam… -Laundry man. Any soiled clothing? -What? -Soiled clothes.
-No. Go now. Listen! -What happened, sir? -The girl has run away. We didn’t find her. Where is she? Look around! Don’t worry, sir. Good, where is the bathroom? Jolly good! Hurry up! -See that girl? -Yes! Where? I have hidden her here! Do you think I have nothing else to do but chase some girl? Why get annoyed? Carry on with your work.
Okay? Let’s go. Carry on… Don’t worry, don’t worry. Tell me. -I found madam. -You did? -Yes. Come on. -Keep this jacket with you. Go. My dear child… Where were you? My job was at stake. I had to leave the room when ill.
I looked for you all over the place! My poor heart. Feels like a pair of bellows! I am sorry, professor. -Come, let’s hurry. -No, I am exhausted. -Carry me now. -Carry you? Me? But… Then take me on this trolley.
Hurry up. My heart has become the smith’s bellows! Hurry. I am dying. I am dying. My heart is beating like the Smithy’s bellows! -Where were you both? -To a doctor. My God! What’s wrong? I have got the shivers again.
Go and get a blanket, Nina. Bring him in… careful now. Be quiet will you? Pritam must be at his wit’s end by now! He must be searching for you high and low! So many? Yes. Only then you’ll stop shivering like this.
This age has now become a burden. Look… you haven’t rested since you’ve come here. Please go. Go and rest. Pritam will be here soon to take care of me. I can’t leave you alone now. Nina dear… you go and lie down.
This old age has really become a nuisance now. Oh, come on! You’re not that old. Become old! Be old! “I will make a house in Premnagar” “Getting ready” “I will make a house in Premnagar” Come in, child.
You look very well today, sir. -Talk to me, my dear. Look at me. -Yes. What are you turning around for? Expecting somebody? Go on… I have come to know you very well. -What did you say? -Your appearance.
.. you’re not like that at all. Then? Don’t pretend now. You are a real dark horse. Nowadays, Aunty puts flowers in her hair, dyes it regularly… For whom? I know very well. So that’s what you know. What did you say? Aunty? Flowers in her hair? And me? How are you today? Fine.
Perfect. Is it due to the fact, that I took care of you yesterday? But of course, or else I wouldn’t have gotten rid of it that fast. What do you mean? I mean, the infection wouldn’t have left me so quickly.
“I will make a house in Premnagar” “Getting ready” “In Premnagar…” -Nina! -Yes Aunty. It’s time we went to the court. Let us go. If you’re well now, come with us. He just got well today.
Let him rest. Mr. Pritam will take us. I won’t let that fool go with you. He nearly lost the affidavit. This is a legal matter. Boys can’t handle it. I’ll come with you. You didn’t take your stick? Yes.
It has become a load now. Come, let’s go. -Three tickets by today’s flight. -Thank you. -When does it leave? -Two and a half hours from now. Two and a half hours from now. -But how can we go today? -And why not? Well, the Professor.
.. You want to meet your nephew right? I have been with him all these days. Why should I meet him now? We will go today. We have to pack our bags too. How can we manage it that quickly? Everything will be looked to.
Don’t go by my beard. I am still sharp. I’ll pack it all like this! Come, I’ll settle your bill. You are very cruel. You’re leaving without meeting your nephew. Give him a thought. Why are you giving him a thought? -Is he my nephew, or yours? -What nonsense.
He’s… Yes, go on. Say it. What is that vagabond to you? He’s not a vagabond! Why do all oldies think the young are fools. He’s not a vagabond, I tell you! My dear child, why are you taking that vagabond’s side? You don’t love.
.. it happens… Wipe your tears now. Go on. “Call out to me” “Don’t make Me so restless in your love” “Don’t make me so Restless in your love” “Call out to me” “Don’t make me so Restless in your love” “Now my life is in trouble” “Now my life is in trouble” “After my death even My ashes will be restless” “Don’t light me like a flame” “Don’t make me so Restless in your love” “Call out to me” “Don’t make me so Restless in your love” “I am hiding in every breath” “I am hiding in every breath” “I am in every tune of the heart” “Oh my love, bow your eyes” “Don’t make me so Restless in your love” “Call out to me” “Don’t make me so Restless in your love” “If I weren’t here, you would weep for me” “If I weren’t here, you would weep for me” “You will always have a pain in your heart” “Don’t destroy the one who loved you” “Don’t make me so Restless in your love” “Call out to me” “Don’t make me so Restless in your love” “Call out to me” “Don’t make me so” “Restless in your love” -You! -Wherever you go, I go too! Why are you so mean to me? I’ll never be mean to you now.
Promise. You won’t go away from me? Not for nine lives. But I… I’ll have to go for a while. Hear that sound? -It sounds like a horn. -Behind that sound… -There is a very strict woman. -Woman? I can tell you everything.
Explain everything to you. But I can’t tell her. While returning I’ll tell you everything. Explain it all to you. Wait for me. -Enough! -Have some more, son. I don’t have the time, mom. If I don’t reach by one o’clock, the old hag will leave without me! -Why didn’t you call her here? -How could I do that? She’s my mistress.
She looks upon servants as servants, nothing else! Seems like a very proud old woman. You can say that again! Excuse me. Mr. Pritam. Yes doctor… Your mother’s fine now. You can take her home. -When? -In about 2-3 weeks.
Thank you, doctor. Thank you. That means I’ll have to make some arrangements. My coat please, mom. Who’s this Nina, son? Nina? But how do you know? -This letter. -This letter? Have you read it? -Every word.
-I am late. Listen. Do you like the girl? It’s all for your sake, mom. You did all the household chores… I thought I would choose a girl to help you out. Get off. Don’t give me explanations now. Tell me.
When are you bringing your bride? That’s the problem, mom. If they come to know everything, then… Come to know what? About us… Nina may accept it. But her Aunty? She’s a dictator! She’ll hang me! She dare! My son is one in a million.
She can never refuse. I’ll go and talk to her personally. No, mom. Don’t ever do that. When I find a solution I’ll… Hey! -What happened? -The old hag’s car is coming here. I am leaving… Listen son.
.. Pritam… Pritam… Where’s Aunty? She’s looking for you in the Sanatorium. Sanatorium? Oh God! -A professor came here… -Yes. He just went to your car. He’s my son. Your son? Yes. But why are you so surprised? You don’t look that old.
It’s due to the treatment here. It’s a very good sanatorium. -Yes. -Please come in. Please sit down. My son was praising you so much. -Really? -Yes. He said he has all the comforts at your place. -He’s a nice man.
-Do you like him? He’s a real gentleman. Everybody likes him. Really? My son’s a real gem. -Says he’s scared of you. -Me? Yes. He wanted to discuss marriage. Marriage? Yes. He just told me today. That everything depends on you.
If you agree, the alliance is through. I… I better go now. Wait! Listen, will you? You didn’t give me an answer. Please don’t be so formal with me henceforth. Strange old woman! Why are you running away? -Yes.
-Come and sit in the car. Okay. Okay. You’re very naughty! Yes. Timid-hearted too. Yes I am. You hid it from me all these days. But your mom told me everything. -Everything? -Yes. Everything. -Look, I do admit my mistake.
-Aren’t you ashamed? What? -I have been ashamed for months! -Liar! You became shameless and told your mom everything. Is it? Don’t pretend! I felt so shy. -What she must think, of us! -What? She asked me what I wished for, but I am not shameless like you.
.. -to say ‘yes’ straight away! -About what? Have some modesty. The driver may hear us. Relax. “I will make a house in Premnagar” “The whole world will be decorated” -Stop the car! -What happened? I have some urgent work.
-But where… -I’ll just come. -Pri… -Tam. -It happens, my child, it happens. -I was… Someone who’s used to toying with hearts. Don’t give your heart to him. That man has discarded your love like some useless thing.
No, that could never happen. It happens, my dear. You have lost him in this birth. He has taken a new girl. Don’t say that, sir. Please don’t. I can’t bear to see you so sad. You want a husband who loves you.
So don’t worry. I am here to serve you, my dear. Sir! What are you saying? It’s pretty straight forward, child. What’s the difference between that vagabond and me? Just this beard? -I’ll shave it off for you.
-You should be ashamed! I didn’t think that you could be such a lowly person! Nina! Listen, will you? -You! -Yes, me! You cheat! Vagabond, fraud! You rattled off so many adjectives. How about calling me by my name? Leave me alone! I’ll never take your name all my life! You cheated all of us.
What could I do? Two things made me do it. First, my unemployment. Second, my mother’s illness. Truly. The day my mom leaves the sanatorium. I’ll tell your Aunty everything. But why didn’t you tell me? Why did you play with my feelings? A secret can be told, but only to the ones close to us.
When I knew you loved me… I revealed my secret to you. I could never love a cheat like you! You started crying again. You really are a bore these days! Now come along. I am late. What do we do now? We’ll manage.
I’ll tell you. -Where? -Rita. Okay, I am leaving. Who was he? Tell me. Who was he? Ramesh. Ramesh. Look, dear. I am not against love. But it has its ways too. So far from the city meeting in these ruins.
What will people think of your behavior? Had I met him in the city, Aunty would’ve found out. If you’re so scared of Aunty, why do you meet this boy? I am not scared of her! Ramesh said the same thing.
I am not scared of Aunty! You’re petrified of her… That’s exactly why you did these things. Don’t meet that boy. I didn’t like him. Why? Because he doesn’t love you. If he did, he wouldn’t have run away when he saw me.
Now go back to the college. And don’t meet this boy again. If one is not strict with girls, they stray from the right path. If one is too strict, girls tend to stray too. The girls are not babies now.
They have matured enough. They are both marriageable. -You must respect their opinions too. -Never! They will marry according to my wishes! That’s why I have already chosen a boy for Nina. What! Who is he? Who? I thought it would bring our families closer together.
I don’t get it, what family is the boy from? Silly! Pritam’s the boy. Understand? Really? That means Nina’s getting married to me! You? I mean to my dear nephew! -Very good! Wonderful! -But… -He will agree to it, won’t he? -He? Even his uncle will agree! Very good.
Very good. Whom are you looking for? -Hanuman Singh! -Yes. -Have you seen the Professor? -Yes. He just went that way. What are you doing here at this time? Meeting that boy, right? Even after I told you not to, you’re meeting that boy.
What can I do, sir? I have to meet him. It’s very important! But he doesn’t meet me anymore. Whenever I tell him to meet me, he just doesn’t turn up. Don’t worry, my dear. I’ll set things straight. Don’t worry, my dear.
I’ll set things straight. Mr. Professor. What are you both doing here? They’re all waiting for you. Come, child. Really? Yes. Here he comes. -Come here, Professor. -Coming… Silence! Please keep quiet.
You will all be glad to know, that very soon… my niece Nina will be getting married. And the boy is no stranger to us. He’s our Professor’s nephew. Congratulations, child. Silence everyone! I too have something to say.
You’ll be happier to know, that there will soon be two weddings. -Two weddings. -Yes. The second, will be of my friend Sitadevi, and the Professor here. Pritam, why have you removed your beard? The joke has gone too far.
I’ll tell your Aunty everything now. You know her wrath. Suppose she throws you out? No choice. I’ll have to go. You’ll go alone? How can I take you with me? I am an adult. I can wed by choice. She has no legal right over me.
That’s true. But there’s something known as decency too. -How can I let her down and take- -That means you don’t love me! Look into my eyes and say that again. Go on. That I don’t love you. Go on, say it.
I had come here to teach children. So simple and straight. Why did you tease me? Make me take revenge? Do you see the consequences? You’re helpless in your own way. Just like me. There’s no way out. We’ll find a way with passing time.
But don’t tell Aunty the truth. Maybe you’re right. I’ll have to hide the truth till tomorrow anyway. Only till tomorrow? I have some vital work with Rita. After that, I’ll… Hanuman Singh! Your beard, fast.
You have seen all this. Now look at this new design. Try this on. I told you I’ll wear a suit! Son! You’ll wear that other thing. Of course, Dad. I’ll wear it. I see! You’re getting married eh? -You? -Who are you? What do you mean? This marriage can’t be.
He can’t cheat an innocent girl in this manner. -No, Dad. The thing is– -What? That girl chased me. Look at this letter from her. My darling. I waited there for you yesterday. But you never came, pity me, or my life will be ruined.
Please meet me at two o’clock today. Yours, Rita. Take this and read it. My son is trying to get away. She’s ensnaring him. Wanton! She’s not wanton. Your son is! He has played up to her and deceived her.
He’ll have to wed her! Don’t talk nonsense! He’ll marry where I want him to! There’s still time. Be bold. Rita loves you. Show some guts and let’s see who stops you. Even your father can’t stop you! Will you leave or should I call my doorman? Please leave.
I can’t go against my Dad. Rascal! Coward! You don’t deserve Rita’s love. Go, get lost! He’s a good for nothing. It’s a good thing that you’re not marrying him. -But– -Do not worry. Forget him. Time will heal everything.
Here’s your letter. I stole it from him. Because that coward is marrying some other girl. Marrying? Yes. In a day or two. Oh God! I am ruined. What do I do? Rita! What’s the matter? Why did Rita run off in that manner? Never mind.
Why are you here? I was sent here by madam. To tell you that your mother’s coming here in the afternoon. Mom? -Oh no. -Oh yes. Madam wrote her a letter. She has wired her reply to it. -Madam is going to collect her personally.
-Oh Lord. -Then… -What is it? Why have you paled? Nothing. Tell madam, I’ll collect my mom. Professor… Professor… What’s wrong with Rita? She’ll be fine… I am going to the station. But why did she run towards the lake? -Lake? -Yes.
She was ranting like a crazy person, that her life was worthless. What is it, Nina? Rita has run towards the lake. There’s something fishy between Rita and the Professor. I saw it all. -Something fishy? -Yes.
-Come on then. -Come on everyone. Rita! Rita! Don’t jump. Your secret will be out! Aunty! Rita has drowned! Aunty! -At this age… -How will he save her? You cowards! Go and save them. Who is that? You.
.. Nina! Did you write this letter to him? Tell me! Did you write this letter to him? Yes. Shameless! Read this letter too. He was not just fooling around with you, but Rita too. -No. -No? Then why don’t you read it? You know Rita’s handwriting, don’t you? She’s critical.
It’s a serious case. The girl’s pregnant! What? No! -She’s pregnant? -Yes. No! It cannot be! I’ll kill her! Kill her! Sitadevi! Aunty. You are all wet! Why didn’t you come to the station to collect me? Mom.
.. Tell me. Why are you silent? I’ll tell you, mom. When? Where were you headed looking like this? Take me home. Home? I don’t have a home anymore. I have lost my job too. -No! Aunty, no! -Let me go! Don’t kill my son.
I beg you. -I’ll kill him! -No! Let go of me. -Let go of me, I say. -No! -Let me go! I tell you, let me go! -No. He has ruined our family name. He impregnated your sister. What did you just say? -Is this true? -No, mom.
-A lie! -Then is it a lie… that you’ve deceived us all along. Worked here as an old man. Answer her. Say this is not true. You have tainted the dignity of the house you lived in? Hit him! -Hit him! Hit him! -Don’t hit him! Son! -Hit him! -Hit him! Don’t beat him! -Hit him! -Don’t! Don’t hit him! Don’t hit him! -Hit him! -Don’t hit him! Hail! What happened child? Who is this woman? My mother.
Till I return, please take care of her. Don’t you worry. I swear, mom! The stigma that has been levied against me in your presence… till I wash that off, I will not show you my face. Never. Save him.
Put me down! I tell you, let me go! I tell you, let me go! -Who is this? -He… Nina! You! Why are you here? The crime you’ve accused me of… is in reality, this coward’s doing! Get out, I say! This hoodlum kidnapped me.
Hoodlum? Look where I have brought you. Do you know her? Rita. Hear that? And you thought I ruined your family name? You even wounded my old mother. Now answer me. Who’s a cheat? Me or him? Shut up! I have read the love letter Nina wrote to you.
And who can be a bigger cheat than you? You deceived me by dressing up as an old man. Then you played young to play Nina and her sister Rita too. No… This is untrue. Did you hear that? You know it’s a lie.
Tell them so. Hey, mister. Don’t pester her. -Due to shock she has lost her voice! -What! She cannot speak. No… No… -Rita… wake up… -Didn’t I tell you she can’t talk? -You can both leave! -Never! If this boy leaves, Rita’s life will be ruined! He’ll marry some other girl.
.. A long as I am alive… He will not leave Rita! Hanuman Singh, call the guards. See that? See what you’ve done to her? Call out to her. She may regain consciousness hearing your voice. Call out to her.
You won’t, eh? Call out to her. Go on… Call her, I say. Take her name. Call out to her. Go on. Call out. Throw him out. Call! Take her name. Call him! Call him! -Take her name… call out. -Let me go! Let go.
Call out to her, damn you! Nina! -You dare touch him! -Nina! What do you think? That he’s a vagabond, a cheat, a good-for-nothing? My heart knows him. And hear what I think of you. You are a tyrant! A dictator! A Dictator! -You called me that? -Yes.
A thousand times! Nobody can stop me today. What do you know of motherly love? We don’t have a mother. We thought we’d get her love from you. But you’re no mother. You’re a dictator! A tyrant. The one who saved your niece’s life you got him and his mother stoned! And even after that, he brought this coward to your door.
Why? So that your niece’s life wouldn’t go to the dogs? Look! Look what you did to him for all this? We’re ashamed to call you Aunty! We will never call you Aunty. Our Aunt’s dead! You’re not our Aunty.
You’re a bloody dictator! A dictator! Did you hear that? Hear that? My niece calls me a dictator. A dictator! Sitadevi! A dictator! Sitadevi! Sitadevi! No, madam. You’re like a mother to your nieces. Mother? I couldn’t be a mother to them.
A dictator… Get out of the way. I am terrible, I am not like a mother. -Sitadevi! Sitadevi! -I am not aunty. I am not mother. -I am not aunty. -Sitadevi! She called me a dictator! Forget what Nina said.
Forgive them. They are your daughters. My daughters? Daughters belong to mothers. I am a dictator to them! -Get lost! -Sitadevi! I am not a mother, I am not… What have you done to be treated as a mother? Ever loved them? Ever hugged them? Shed tears over them being orphans? I know what a mother is! My mother was a T.
B. patient. But she hid that fact from me. Just so… her son who is plagued by unemployment should not be upset. That’s a mother. That is a mother. How would I know what a mother is? I am not a mother.
.. You are a mother, madam. A mother! Every woman is a mother. Every woman has a mother’s love. And you’re proving it now. It’s your mother’s love that’s aching. And look there. Your orphaned nieces. Why are you standing so far away when you’re so near? Give a chance to your mother’s love to rouse.
You’re a mother! Love your nieces. You’re their mother. You’re a mother. Mother… I am a mother. I am a mother. I am a mother. Did you all hear that? I am a mother. I am, aren’t I? A mother, you are! Rita.
.. I am one, aren’t I? Nina… am I a mother? My dear children! Does it feel any different than mother’s bosom? She used to hug us too. Hey you… I have two daughters. I want two sons-in-law too! Come here.
Come on… “Someone will come to our village” “Someone will come to our village” “He will be bonded with love” “Someone will come to our village”
