Chennai Express (2013)
Movie Script

I'm Rahul.
I'm forty.
Normally by this age,most people experience something big in life.
I also experienced something big.
I mean, really big.
And that changed my life completely.
Actually lets start from the begining
Since childhood i
used to live with my parents
and grand parents.
when l reached to 8 years,
my parents died.
my grand parents grew me up.
when l was a child,
so obviously l was cute.
people used to say while
pulling my cheeks so so sweeettt
and that sweetness was the
business of my grandpa..
y.y sweets merchant.
there were more branches
in mumbai than greenry..
brother?
and my grandpa always poked his
nose in my love life.
Sometime l'll get his call,
or sometimes he appears like a toad.
i never got the chance for romance.
So the marriage is
totally out of question
see how sachin is playing.
i believe that my grandpa was
die hard fan of sachin.
but he himseld didn't apply the
die word in his life..
time just passed but he didn't pass..
all my relatives got settled abroad.
and then year 2013..
my grandpa's 100th happy birthday
whole relatives got together again
and my life's 2 tragedies too came
My two friends...
Bobby and saleem...
And you both...

to the person's number l was
trying to contact.
those all were vanished from
my brains pane.

i told them the reason of eloping..
that my father...
has problem with our status.
i'm very rich
and you're a sweetner.
who told you that l'm sweetner
what?
are you a sweets merchant?

whats there for laughing in it
the sweets merchant is better
than your don
shut up

you're laughing on me here,
and your father made me a joke
its a strange combo of you both
i'm thinking that how
your mother is bearing you
did she laughs too?
my moms no more
i didn't know.
i know how it feels to be without mother.
why?
your parents
got died in a car accident.
i was 8
actually l didn't miss my parents.
because grand parents
took their place.
specially grandpa
always were happy in my happiness
he can't spend time without me.
rahul this...Rahul that..
spending 50 years
without parents..
yes mina
its hard..
but..

do l look 50 years old to you?
no..
you aren't
are you more than it?
are you going to sleep on the floor.
that's not for me..
its for you
if l sleep with you in bed,
so can't you control?
i've a problem
that's it...
that you can't control....
stop rubbish
i sleep on the bed..
i'm your husband.

dont tell me later what will happen
its not my guarantee
what will happen in night.
Rahul, Just consider that
today you're gonna get molested
because your wife can't control

mina became witch
i told you not to sleep
next to me.
if l see the dream..
i used to kick
am l scooter of your father
that you're kicking me.
you aint' the daughter of don,
but donkey
you're witch
are you going to jogging wearing that dress?
husband carrys the wife
while climbing the temple's steps
its their belief that it will make
strong the spouse bound
are you strong?
what's the need to be strong to see
the tradition?
not to see...
have to do.
we're spouse for them
is that a forcing or what?
what?
constrain..
what?
do you want to live here or not?
yes.
so you'll carry me..
will you not let me fell
maybe you're forgetting..
we'll reach there after climbing
the heaven's stop will be
on 100 steps
where's the power of common man?
i know you'll fell me in 50.
what is he telling
he's saying to you've proved
that you'll take care of me forever
subtitle,
its their believe whoever complete
this the god will keep them together
without vermillion this tradition
will not consider complete
you should tell me earlier..
means its all goes wasted
i'm paining in my body
lets go..
we've to get down 300 stairs
what happening?
i'm packing
why
do you want to stay here
its enough
lets go from here.
or they will make us do the
strange traditions
get ready
no
if we both run away then what
will they think about us.
that we run away
its about the heart of villagers
if they'll come to know that we're
fake spouse,will they help others?
isn't that, you dont want to
go from here.
because l'm seeing..
since you're in my wife's role
you're feeling good.
look, the vermillion l applied
in your forehead..
dont take it seriously
you can only think like that..
did you ever think about
the villagers feelings.
leave the village,
did you think about your grandma's emotions.
you told me that your grand parents
took the place of your parents.
and what you did with his ashes.
i changed it..
do you know why?
because l have no feelings.
l'm bad...acutally l'm worst person
you're only a good person and
those villagers
and no bad person should live
among the good persons.
