24 (2016) Movie Script

Having separate connections
for both the houses is such a pain
Till now whatever I have said is
the 1st limitation of my invention
This machine capable of
magical wonders...
...has a 2nd constraint
What I mean is...
...its limit
An extremely crucial one
Let me tell you abou-
It will wor-
Say 'hello' to your father
He doesn't want
you and me, right?
This laboratory is
his whole world, right?
Tell your father
Is this a playground?
How many times have I told you
not to bring the baby here?
This is full of chemicals
Imagine if even a drop
falls on you or our baby?
I didn't topple anything
All your son's fault...!
He has come here to give a gift
to his dad with so much love!
And you're scolding us
Priya, watch your ste-
'Let us not give your father
even a single gift'
Shall we keep all the gifts?
You mentioned a gift
And then you walked off in a huff
What was the gift?
Happy Birthday
You're such an acclaimed scientist!
You are not even aware
you should give a return gift!
Return gift...?
Which means...
...something is brewing
in your mind!
What do you want me to give?
Will you do it for me?
Have I ever said
'no' to you?
Tell me
Don't continue
this experiment
Let go of it
You are so deeply
involved in this research
I am so worried it will
only lead to some disaster
This invention of mine
is 99% most unlikely to work
...if at all
...if at all it works-
Even if whatever you are
scared about does happen...
...I know I can fix it
Whom am I doing all this for?
For you
And for our son
What's my little prince
complaining about now?
He is hungry
Wants milk it seems
- Hold him for 5 minutes
- Where are you off to?
I'll be right back
- Priya...hey!
- I'll be back
I'm neck deep in work-
Give me just 5 minutes
No matter what anyone says
you are your mother's pet
Even when we admit you in school...
...don't take your father's surname
I will make sure
you take your mother's name
Are you okay with that?
You will lie down
here for a while
Lie down comfortably
Rest a bit
(baby crying)
Don't cry, sweetypie
Mother is coming
I'll ask your mother to sing for you
Your favourite song, okay?
(birds chirping)
(water flowing)
1 minute...patience, dear
(baby fretting)
There you go
(baby's squeal of delight)
He is all smiles listening
to his amma's voice
Mamma's boy!
"Our little bundle of love
You're born to rule, sleep now"
"Hush a bye baby
Sleep listening to this lullaby"
"Our cherished flower scented sweet
You're born to conquer, now sleep"
"Rest, my little one so dear
Sleep, my treasure trove of laughter"
"In the crystal depths of your eyes
all your sorrows will subside"
"With the wave of your hand fancy
my world functions in normalcy"
"In your every tiny heartbeat
my whole life revolves complete"
"Hush, my baby
Listen to my lullaby"
"Our little bundle of love
You're born to rule, sleep now"
"For every person born on earth
there is a purpose to unearth"
"You are my expressive essence
You are my entire sustenance"
"My penance paid rich dividends
I am blessed with you, my little prince"
"Sleep, my pearl crescent of joy
Sweet dreams, my precious boy"
"Sleep, my pearl crescent of joy
Sweet dreams, my precious boy"
"Hush, my baby
Listen to my lullaby"
"Our little bundle of love
You're born to rule, sleep now"
"Our little bundle of love
You're born to rule, sleep now"
Good afternoon, sir
Has he started?
I was with him
all morning, sir
He should be
done by now
He was supposed to
start by 4:00 p.m
I heard sounds
from the lab
He must have started
Sir, I've been working
all these years for you
You said you would
reward me suitably
Priya, it's working
I did it
My watch is working!
In the same womb 36 weeks
we lay beside; cheek to cheek
Within few minutes gap
we came out to our mother's lap
Identical in identity
Twins, you and me
What was the difference in time
between you and me being born?
3 minutes
180 seconds
Those 180 seconds
have moulded us
Opposites of each other
180 degrees apart
That's time...!
Look how it has
played in our lives
Who can analyse time
better than you, right?
You are the perfect son
A celebrated scientist
The one who made
Phoenix Watch Company
...India's leading enterprise
Model husband
Most loving father
But I, on the other hand
I am
A brilliant villain
Happy birthday,
my dear twin brother
Where is the birthday gift
for your brother?
I have come
For my watch
Athreya, just don't hurt Priya
Happy birthday
...to me!
Look at me
Search every nook and corner
Hurry up
I'm sure he must have
hidden the watch here
Where is our baby?
He is...
...in the secret room
Aiyo! Priya
What happened?
The watch
It is with him
- Mithra
- Sir?
It must be in some
watch case, Mithra
Please don't tell him
where the watch is
If he finds out where it is
he will kill our baby
(baby crying)
We have looked everywhere, sir
The watch is not here
It must be here
I heard their baby crying
I want that baby
- Go, search
- Okay, sir
Where the hell is it?
Don't hurt her
She will suffocate
She can't breathe
Athreya, don't hurt her
You are mistaken
My experiment
is not yet done
Give me 5 minutes
I'll make it work
and hand it over to you
I swear, trust me
'Priya, it's working, Priya!'
'I did it'
'My watch is working!'
Think I'm deaf?
Did you think I'm stone deaf?
Poor Priya!
She may die
What do you mean
'She may die'?
Let go
Please...don't kill her
I'm begging you
Don't cry
Please don't cry
Over there
(baby crying)
(muffled crying)
(Train whistling)
You'll be fine
(baby crying)
I'm sorry, my son
(baby crying)
Your beloved brother
...did not have the heart
to leave his twin all alone
For the last time
Where is the watch?
What you didn't tell me
Your son just did!
You are a very lucky man
Your birth day and
the day you died
...are one and the same
May you live long!
Son, so far we heard
numbers in reverse
Now let us listen to
letters in reverse, okay?
'26 Years later'
- Hurry up
- I am coming
I have other customers to visit
Wait, don't hassle me
The walls here are
covered with clocks
But completely oblivious
to the value of time
Come soon, ma
I have other places to go
As if people are waiting
spreading a red carpet for you!
What's wrong with him?
He didn't switch off the light
When he gets the bill
he will get enlightened!
Aiyo! I could have
got electrocuted
Why hasn't he fixed
this switch as yet?
I've been telling him
like a broken record!
Why are you so impatient?
Can't you see I'm coming?
As if you will trade
something out of this world?
You'll throw away
your old junk
I have boxes filled
with gold and diamond
Why don't you take them?
Fat hopes!
Finished breakfast?
Of course!
What is this box?
Hey! How did this get here?
Wait, let me take a look
What do you use this for?
I pound ginger and garlic
I hammer nails with it
Prop up our chair
with a broken leg
We even swat mosquitoes with it
I can't sell this
This box is as old as my son!
What is inside this box?
Who knows?
I tried opening it
for so many years
I have no clue
what is inside
Just unable to prise it open
Give it to me
I can open it
As if you can do what
we couldn't all these years
Give it here
Give me the box
we use to break stuff
Heard that?
Didn't I tell you
how useful it is!
Now you know its value
He was trying to
walk away with it
Do you know its value?
Watch me now
Haven't I told you not
to show your face here?
Anna, it was your mother
who called me to-
Ma, you have too much
time on your hands
Thanks to this chap, you are
trading all our vessels for plastic
You are hell bent on
throwing away old stuff
One day you'll be
the only old stuff remaining
And he will trade you
for a plastic bucket!
Mother, of late your activities
are becoming questionable
- Hey!
- Huh?
Clear off!
Haven't I told you not to spit
your gum all over the place?
It sticks to my slippers like glue
Go, wretched fellow!
Get out
Why did you go out
without drinking coffee?
- Eat breakfast
- What's for lunch?
It's been ages since I tasted
your delicious fish curry
How shameless can you get?
Can shamelessness
satisfy hungry stomachs?
Ma, where is that
wooden prop-box?
Saravana has it
Slide it over
Here you go
Why are you still here?
No, anna
I was hoping I could taste
your mother's fish curry
Oh yes! I am here to cook
your favorite dishes 24x7
But do I have a daughter-in-law
to cook a single meal for me?
Did you hear me?
Loud and clear!
To tick your wish list I have
a long line of to-be brides waiting
Look at her, sir
Such a beautiful girl
But how tragic
she cannot talk
- Poor soul!
- You mean this girl?
Is this girl born dumb?
She opens her mouth
you can see doomsday!
She is the granddaughter
of that elderly gentleman
She is off to Chennai
to study agriculture
Why are all of them
into sign language?
They treated one of their
family members too harsh
She walked out of
the house many years ago
That was on a Friday
Repenting their rude behavior...
...and not let their tongue run
in the words they speak hereafter
...every Friday from
6:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m
...they strictly follow
this vow of silence
6'o clock
It's 6'o clock now
- Don't talk to strangers, dear
- Make sure your phone is charged
- Don't forget to eat well
- Call us every day
First get inside
and close the door
Bye, Sathya
Go inside
(fire alarm announcement)
Is it true
what I heard?
It's a miracle, Mithran
Waking up from coma
after 26 years is a miracle
But below the waist,
he is completely paralyzed
But what's amazing is...
...his brain function
is absolutely normal
But we have a problem
Why are you staring at me?
Who are you!?
Where is Mithran?
It's me, sir
What has happened to you?
I've grown old, sir
Which year is this?
Two thou-
Get me a mirror
Not now, sir
You've just regain-
Didn't you hear me?
Bring it to me
'May you live long'
Everyone wants to
live long and enjoy life
But no one...
...wants to live long
when they are old and grey
Look at me
I have aged without
having lived, Mithra
I cannot live
this kind of life
Those who were scared of me
will now be oozing with self pity
I went after a machine to have
Time in the palm of my hands
In the blink of an eye
I have lost 26 years
of my precious life
I want to get back
all that I lost
Mobility, my youth, everything
Take him to whichever
corner of the world
Spare no expense
But cure him
I've been treating him
for 16 years till date
If I could do so, wouldn't
I have told you by now?
I don't want excuses
Give me a solution
I want the cure
There's only one way I know
Go back in time
26 years ago
Prevent him from being
involved in that accident
In other words, it's impossible
Don't worry about anything
Did you listen carefully
to what the doctor said?
He doesn't know it is possible
to go back 26 years in time
But you and I know
Where is that watch?
'The house and lab
are still in my custody'
- Mithra
- Sir?
'Good afternoon'
'The time now is 4:42 p.m'
'I am Dr Sethuraman'
'One among the many prestigious
watch manufacturing companies in India'
'...is our Phoenix Watch Company'
'We have manufactured
different kinds of watches'
'Now at a very basic level'
'What is a watch?'
'A device that shows the time'
'That is all'
'And as you all know...'
'...time cannot be
controlled by mankind'
'But what if we are
able to control it?'
'Is this a playground?'
'How many times have I told you
not to bring the baby here?'
Make this lab
the way it used to be!
We can use this manual and
create the watch ourselves
Right...let's go
Hear me out
Youngsters nowadays
just can't wait to get married
The son I gave birth to
shows total disinterest
Boys! Auto is here
Sort all the items
and weigh them
On your toes
You were saying something
What more can I say?
How much longer
will I talk to myself?
Don't I need a daughter-in-law
at least to fight with at home?
I've spread the word in my circles
for a good match for your son
A lovely daughter-in-law will
soon land up at our doorstep
Let me tell you
what I feel
Mani's time has come
Everything will work
like well oiled clockwork
Every time I talk to you
I feel calm and rejuvenated
I'm glad
The right girl for my son
You are in charge
That's it
Don't even worry about it
A wonderful girl will find
her way into your home!
Be strong
Mani, where are you?
I'm coming...coming
What is this?
Why do you leave
the shop unattended?
I was here all this while
I went to attend to my customer
Where's Mani?
Only 1/2 an hour ago he said
he would be back in 5 minutes
He should be here
in another hour
Someone will loot us threadbare
Only then you will learn a lesson
Hey! How long since I asked you to get
an electrician to repair that switch?
I'll attend to it
I'm get electrocuted and then
it will be too late to regret
What is this unique key?
Wonder which lock it fits!
Hello, Nair
Your wall clock is ready
I told Saravana to give it to you
He gave me the clock
But he forgot the winding key
Silly fool
Just a minute
It must be here somewhere
Where can it be?
Whose key is-
Mani, my key
Here it is
Sorry, Nair
I made you come back
I gave the money
to Saravana
Oh! Look at that!
A watch
No wonder
What will you expect to find
in a watch mechanic's shop?
So the mystery of the prop-box
has been solved despite the build up!
It never even struck me
Looks quite new
That's strange!
24-hours dial
'Are you back?'
I'm back, ma
'How many days I've been
asking you to change that switch?'
'Do you intend to or not?'
It isn't a big deal, ma
I'll look into it
My dear mother
I managed to open that bo-
'Hey! Mani'
'I heard a loud crash
What happened?'
Nothing, ma
Hey! Mani
Where did you disappear?
You said you'll be
back in 5 minutes
Your mother yelled at me
Okay, listen
Khader from the tyre shop
collected his watch
He paid Rs 150
Nair from the tea shop
I gave him his wall clock
You forgot the winding key...?
That doesn't matter
He paid Rs 250
Remember that ugly green
ladies' watch you had?
A soooper glam-doll walked in
I palmed it off onto her
I gave her a 10% discount
- 10 %?
- Doesn't matter
Rs 800 for that watch
All this adds
up to Rs 1200
For all my effort put into this
I'll just help myself to Rs 100
100 bucks
100 is too much for you
I'll tell my mother
Better not step in here
'Hey! Mani'
'I heard a loud crash
What happened?'
'Can you hear me or not?'
'I heard a loud noise'
'Nothing, ma'
'It took you so long
to say this, huh?'
'Where did you disappear?'
'You said you'll be
back in 5 minutes'
'Your mother yelled at me'
'Okay, listen'
'Khader from the tyre shop
collected his watch'
'He paid Rs 150'
'Nair from the tea shop'
'I gave him his wall clock'
'He paid Rs 250'
'Remember that ugly green
ladies' watch you had?'
'A soooper glam-doll walked in'
'I palmed it off onto her'
'I gave her a 10% discount'
'Rs 800 for that watch'
'All this adds
up to Rs 1200'
'For all my effort put into this'
'I'll just help myself to Rs 100'
See you
Keep your watches clean
'Stay right there
I'll be back'
'Hey! Mani'
'I heard a loud crash
What happened?'
My respected mother!
Nothing at all, mathaji
'Hey! Mani'
'Where did you disappear?'
'You said you'll be
back in 5 minutes'
'Your mother yelled at me'
'Okay, list-'
Shut up
Did Khader from
the tyre shop come?
- Did you give him his watch?
- Yes
You took Rs 150?
Count...count and
keep it on my table
Did Nair from
the tea shop come?
- Gave him the wall clock?
- Yes
Forgot the winding key, right?
Took 250 from him, eh?
Keep it on the table
Remember that ugly green
ladies' watch in the showcase?
Did a soooper
glam-doll walk in?
She flashed her close-up smile?
Did you give her
a 10% discount?
Bloody idiot! You sold
that watch for Rs 800?
Keep that 800 on the table
Now claiming you put in
so much effort...
...you'll take a kickback from me?
Am I right?
Hogger of the first order!
Help yourself and go
How did you get it
picture perfect right?
Off you go, man
Go and attend to your work
Hey! Just get out I say
I'm leaving right now
'Stay right there
I'll be back'
Watch your step
Sorry, sir
Thank you!
'Instead of looking ahead
I kept turning back'
'Instead of looking ahead
I kept turning back'
I kept turning back-
Instead of looking ahead
Oh gawd!
What a sudden downpour
All the clothes I washed
will be dripping wet now
When you want rain
it will be so stubborn!
And when you don't want rain
it will have a mind of its own!
All my hard work
is down the drain
1 minute
Could you tell me
the time in your watch?
'Come at 5'o clock, sharp'
What are you doing?
My shirt is getting drenched
Water the plants
Not me, imbecile
'I'll just step out
for a while, son'
A groom is coming over to see
Kamakshi's daughter Sudha
I'll be back in half an hour
Don't leave the shop
unattended till then
Alright, take this with you
What is this for?
What if it rains today?
April sun shining bright
How will it rain today?
No April showers, just take it
to protect yourself from the sun
I've gone out
in the sun so often
Why this sudden spurt
of care and concern?
Catastrophes, apostrophes
with bed coffee and atrocities
You are oblivious to!
Listen to your
one and only son
Take the umbrella with you
I'm already worried about
finding the perfect match for you
You're blabbering
more than usual!
Looks like my little faith
will also disappear
Why are you like this?
Take it with you
You take care of yourself, son
Don't leave the umbrella behind

'Why did you come this early?'
Excuse me
My watch is broken
I need to fix it fast
- When will that shop open?
- Anytime now
Hey! Mani
Come soon
Customer is waiting
Open your shop
Please wait for 2 minutes
Mani, can you hear me?
Hurry up
Help me down
Lower me
Let me down
My feet are on the ground
Take your hands off!
Won't you be careful
while opening the shutter?
Someone maybe standing out
No concern at all?

Are you okay?
Are you hurt?
Hope not
Thankfully no
But what if I had been hurt?
Oh! No
What happened?
What's wrong?
'What's wrong?'
Look at this!
My watch broke
You broke it
It's just a watch
I can easily fix it for you
I won't pay a single rupee!
Because you broke it
You don't have to pay
I'll fix it for you
Please enter the dragon!
Don't forget
I won't even pay you
a single rupee!
Okay, okay point noted
Let me repeat
I won't give you
a single rupee!
You don't have to
pay me at all
Give me the watch
HMT watch!
Model S 76
This is a rare collector's item
Of course
This is my grandfather's gift to me
It's his favorite, you know
He won't part with it to anyone
I am his granddaughter
When I moved here to study
he gave it to me with all his love
Without a wee bit of compassion
you broke such a sentimental watch
He gave it to me
with so much love
Favorite watch
Now I can't even use it
Your grandpa's watch
will be as good as new
I'm a watch mechanic
This is child's play for me
Keep chatting
I'll get it done in a jiffy
Right in front of your eyes,
I'll take out my tool kit
And watch what I do to
your grandpa's watch!
'Excuse me'
'My watch is broken
I need to fix it fast'
'- When will that shop open?
- Anytime now'
Bloody criminal!
'Hey Mani, customer is
waiting, open your shop'
'Please wait for 2 minutes'
Just wait by the side here
He'll come down now
(loud thud)
Please wait right there
2 steps back
Can't even enjoy
my bun in peace!
What sort of life is this?
Hey! Stinko
Where is that glam-doll?
The one who was just-
That HMT watch, model S76
with the broken glass
Aren't you here to
ask me to fix the glass?
How do you know
my watch broke?
And I am here
to get it fixed?
I'm a watch mechanic, madam
These are very trivial things for me
I can hear it if any watch breaks
anywhere in this area Yeah!
Please come!
Enter the Dragon!
Please come
Go, go! Go work hard!!
Come in!
Carry on, carry on
Watch, please
Oh I see!
Oh ok!
Is it?
Really now!
Apparently, this watch has a
lot of sentimental value!
Yes! But how did you know?
I'm a watch mechanic, madam!
'This is child's play for me'
This is your grandfather's
favorite watch
Yes, it is
He has never parted
with it to anyone
When you moved here to study,...
...he gave it to you
with so much love
Am I right?
Yes, but how do you know that?
I'm a watch mechanic, madam
All this is child's play to me
As simple as a guppy!
Generally speaking, I have a high
general knowledge quotient!
The watch isn't too damaged
Only the glass needs changing
If we could meet at around 2:00 p.m
the watch should be ready by then
(phone ringing)
2:00 p.m sharp
Yes, ma?
Why are you so quiet?
Oh! Today's Friday?
Are you angry with me?
Cough twice
if you're mad at me
Have I forgotten something?
Oh God!
Grandpa's birthday
Is he next to you?
Give him the phone
Happy birthday
Forgive my 'ghajini' memory!
Aren't you my most
precious grandpa!
Cough twice
if you've forgiven me
I'll call at 6:01 sharp
this evening
You had better pick up
Happy happy birthday
What happened?
All okay?
My grandpa's birthday
I clean forgot
I didn't look at the date
When will the watch be ready?
I told you, at 2:00 p.m sharp
Ready with a new glass
At 4:00 p.m I need to go
some place important
Will it be ready
at 2:00 p.m sharp?
You won't send someone
to collect it, will you?
You will come, right?
Yes, I'll be here at 2:00
Thank you so much
Sir, careful
Sir, let our researchers
continue at their own pace
I have an idea
Best Design
New Talent
Fancy dress?
Doesn't matter
I can add this too
Hi, please come
I was waiting for you
Are you going out?
You've changed your dress
That's why I wondered
Oh! You noticed
And you said you were waiting
I'm a watch mechanic
All this is child's play-
Please, sit down
It's so dusty
Lot of things on the table
So many awards!
Are they all yours?
I'm a watch mechanic, right?
These things are
run of the mill stuff
- Excuse me?
- Yeah!
I'm in a little bit
rushed for time
Is the watch ready?
How much is it?
You don't have to pay
Minor repair
That isn't fair
Just tell me how much!
Okay, if you insist
Let me bill it
What is your good name?
I need
I need your name
for my bill
Your name?
Such a sweet name
Okay, your mobile number?
What for?
No, casually, for my
general knowledge
In case of emergency,
for customer care
Can you tell me how much?
I really have to go now
Two hundred and...
...forty seven rupees
I would appreciate
if you gave me exact cash
What the hell are you doing?
Just casually-
Casual about what?
What the hell is so casual
about ripping my tyre apart?
It is normal for
watch mechanics to-
What are you blabbering?
'I would appreciate
if you gave me exact cash'
What happened to you?
What happened to you?
Watch mechanic, ma'am
This is child's play for me!
- Are you okay?
- Yeah!
This is just breathing exercise
Your watch
Exact cash
1 second
Your watch
This isn't my watch
My watch doesn't show the date
This is your watch
This morning when you were
speaking to your grandpa...
...you said you forgot
it was his birthday
So I took the liberty of
adding the date for you
I thought you would
find it useful
Hope you like it
Thanks a ton
It's okay
I'm a watch mechanic
All this is child's play for me
Okay, thanks
Oh God!
Why...what happened?
I have a flat tyre
It was fine when I got here
This is a very dirty,
polluted area
When I say chlorophyll and haemoglobin in
the air is high no one takes me seriously
This looks like someone
took a green screwdriver
And purposely ripped
your tyre apart
Why are the insurance agents
and environmentalists nonfunctional?
But how do you know all this?
Didn't I tell you?
'Generally speaking, I have a high
general knowledge quotient!'
You don't worry
I'll drop you in my bike
No, it's okay
I'll take a 3 wheeler
After all the trouble I took
to puncture your tyre!
I meant your tyre is flat
And how troublesome!
It happened outside my shop
I'll feel better only if I drop you
Why should you
go out of your way?
I wouldn't have it
any other way!
This is no big deal
I can drop you
How do I tell you this?
What's the problem?
I need to attend
an important event
That's why I borrowed
my friend's scooty
I brought a change of dress
with me to change at the hostel
- But it's late now
- My mother is at home
We live just upstairs
You can change there
Treat my home as yours
- Come in
- Thank you so much
Please come
Like your own house
'She stepped in with
her best foot forward!'
Yes, please come
- Ma...ma
- What?
A customer needs to
change her dress here
Are you running
a garment store?
To change clothes here?
Can't a watch mechanic
do even this favor?
- What's wrong with you?
- She has a function to attend
One lady helping another
I told her you are here
Please come
She's here already
This is my mathaji
I mean, my mother
What's your name, child?
My name is Sathyabama too
We share a name!
Remember I told you
it's a sweet name?
Now you know why
Actually, ma, my name
is also Sathyabama
The girls at college
will tease me
So I shortened it to Sathya
It suits you
Come inside, dear
Come in
My sari is stained
What do I do now?
It was fine when I packed it
Ma, what is this?
Bad enough a girl's tyre
is not safe around here
Now even her sari isn't safe
What are these anti-corruption
movements doing?
Can I take a look?
Spilt all over
Looks like it is
a well planned ploy
Looks like ink has been
splashed artistically!
What a wretched fellow
with a disgusting mindset
Now what do I do?
Poor child!
Ma, tell her
I'm a watch mechanic, you know
All this is child's play for me
Wait a minute
Ma, come inside
Where to?
Come in, I say
Quick! Give me your sari
How can I give my sari to that girl?
Who asked for your sari?
That pink sari you bought
in Saravana Stores for Rs 8000
- You were ironing it this morning
- In your dreams!
I bought that sari with
so much love for your wife-to-be
- I can't part with that
- Ma, don't say 'no'
You don't realize the feelings of
the son you carried for 10 months!
She is the one!
Don't pull a fast one
My God! She's so beautiful!
Did you find out about her family?
Don't frighten her away
with your over enthusiasm!
Step by step, we shall
proceed slowly
- Give me that sari
I'll get it, you go
You're a darling!
Does it look good?
You look terrible
Then what?
You know very well
you look gorgeous
Then why fish for compliments?
All these beautiful women
need a constant endorsement!
You saw yourself
in the mirror, right?
I really want to know
why even ask?
'Generally speaking, I have a high
general knowledge quotient!'
She forgot her 'bindi'
What happened?
My breathing exercise!
What is happening here?
I told you today is
my grandpa's birthday
Back home it will be
celebrated as a special day
So I thought
I would come here
That's a lovely thought
My pleasure
You look beautiful
'Bindi' and jasmine
are perfect accessories
Let us...go
'Stop blabbering, Mani'
Welcome, please come
- Hello, ma'am
- Hello
- This is Mani
- Good evening
The food you ordered
has been delivered
Siva, chair please
Please sit
(Cricket commentary)
Cheer up, children
Come and see the goodies
ma'am has brought for you
Come on
Get up
Let's all eat
India should have won
At least for these kids
India should have won
Just imagine how
they would have rejoiced!
The kids would have
cheered and danced
Our ear drums would
have been flat out!
(cricket commentary)
Yes, ma?
I'll be right there
My mother on the phone
I'll be there right now
I'll be there
in 5 minutes, ma
Okay...okay, ma
(loud cheering)
(loud cheering)
Eat well, children
Don't waste anything
Would you like some more?
Dhoni did it
The sixer just flew into the sky
I was so scared he would catch it
I heard we won
As usual, Dhoni hit
a sixer off the last ball
The kids must have been
so happy and excited
They must have cheered
ripping your ear drums off
You should have seen them
But tell me this
Where did you disappear?
I had to go-
My mother called to say
a customer was waiting
I went to see him
The customer was at
Chepauk stadium, huh?
I saw you
On TV!
You were going home
Why were you at the stadium?
You must have mistaken
someone else for me
Don't be a bluff master
Same shirt
Same trousers
Tell me the truth now
You saw me
on TV for sure?
I am 100% sure
Gone case!
What I was hoping won't happen...
...has happened
What are you saying?
This is a disease affecting
pretty, young girls
Especially popular among
girls in your age group
It's called
Supposing you-
If you love someone and
I don't mean the normal kind
If your love is strong and deep
if you love him truly, madly, deeply
Then whomever you see
will be like his clone!
It's called
What is this nonsense?
I'm in love with you?
And that too, strong love
You're getting angry instead
of me losing my temper!
You just said
you saw me on TV
Next it'll be a hoarding,
And here, there, everywhere
You'll then say I fixed
the flowers and 'bindi' on you?
- Look! This is too much
- Why?
How will I fall in love with you?
I saw you for 10 minutes in
the morning and 1 hour now
- How can I fall in love so soon?
- Yeah exactly
I should be saying all this
You're the one who claims
you saw me everywhere
It's called Imaginoromansophilia
You've got it really bad
I'll prove it to you
You don't believe me, right?
I'll prove it
Do you see that caterer?
Can you see him?
Look at him
You'll think it's me
Please look at the dragon
Did you see me?
He looked like my clone?
It has spread
Don't worry
I'll be there for you
Let's check one last time
for our own confirmation
Look at that gardener
What happened?
I'm a watch mechanic
Breathing exercise!
The gardener didn't
resemble me, did he?
He looked ditto you!
That gardener resembled me?
Don't you think this is too much?
I'm basically a simple
watch mechanic
I may help out for
the welfare of our nation
But if girls fall flat
for such reasons!
I understand
You are different
You love me sincerely
Truly, madly, deeply
No, I don't
I don't blame you
It isn't your fault
Don't blame yourself
...basically, I am
a watch mechanic
I prefer to marry a girl
my mother selects
And love her
till death do us part!
Whatever you feel,
tell my mother directly
But you do love me
...deeply, truly,
honest to God
And very sincere
Please don't forget that
It's a kind request
See you
'Today is August 15th'
'Not just our city, the entire nation
is celebrating Independence Day'
'They have organized
various programs'
'Call and tell us exactly what
Independence Day means to you'
'Husband endorsed
his wife's secret lover!'
And this hits the headlines!
Mani, wake up
Get up, Mani
- Don't bug me
- Wake up
- Let me sleep some more
- Get up
Aren't you my childhood friend?
- Yes, I am
- We are inseparable?
All these years as a watch mechanic,
have you ever helped me?
- No
- Not once, right?
Read this
'Golden opportunity
Prize money 5 crores'
They have promised
50 million for this watch
5 crores, imagine!
Pay close attention
to what I'm saying
How many heads will I tonsure
to earn this kind of amount?
Mani, somehow make
a duplicate of this watch
I'm sure we can get
at least 50,000 for it
I'll keep just 40,000
and give you 10,000
There's something
called 'hard work'!
But please don't say 'no'
- Yes?
- Okay
True to your name
you're such a gem!
'This has been with me
for so many years'
'But only now I realized
how unique it is'
'How is Phoenix company
aware of its existence?'
'If this company is offering
50 million for this watch...
'...then they are also aware of
the time travel power of this watch'
'...then they are also aware of
the time travel power of this watch'
'How are they linked
to this rare watch?'
'How are they connected to me?'
'Who are they?'
Mani, did you
underestimate a salon?
It's like a school
You broaden your mind
internationally there
We make our clients read newspapers
and they share news generously
Do any of your customers
read the newspaper?
When I get the 50 million in my hands...
...I will have gold scissors
and silver blades in my salon
Don't you worry, Mani
I'll take care of everythi-
Wretched fellows!
When did they start
reading the newspaper?
All of them have duplicated
the watch to grab the prize money
Mani, my childhood friend
Will your watch
pass muster?
Will we get anything at all?
Stand in queue
I'll be right back
Goodness gracious!
Yes, sir
Your name and address?
Well, my name is Mani

I'll be in my 70s

Sit here
I'll be nearby
Call me when they announce
our token number
Managing Director- Mithran
Chairman - Athreya
I can't believe it, sir
So many people-
Let's talk inside
What is it, sir?
You wanted to tell me
something urgent
We have got it!
What we were searching
high and low all this while...
...has come in search of us
Token # 144
'Token # 144'
All the watches we've got
so far are duplicates
I checked them myself
How can you be sure
this one is original?
This is also a duplicate
But the maker of this watch...
...has the original with him
In the paper advertisement...
...we had given only
the front picture of the watch
All of them out there
who duplicated it...
...have created
only the front dial
Look at this
He is the only one who has
duplicated the original
How else will he know the words
'Project 24' engraved at the back?
Replay the entire footage of
the CCTV camera from this morning
Token # 144
I want to see him
Play the live feed
I want to see what he's doing now
Something fishy
What do you mean, sir?
Look carefully, Mithra
He has no idea
what's happening here
Bring him to the conference room
And wait for my instructions
Excuse me, sir
The person you wanted to meet
You are Mr...?
- Mani
- Congratulations
You've won the competition
Your watch has been selected
The prize money
is all yours
Sir, what is your name?
You aren't Mithran
You are my lucky mascot-man!
Don't go anywhere
Sir, I won't move an inch
I'll be right here
Mani, you are truly a genius
I can't believe we just won 50 million!
Go to the conference room again
Thrash that duplicate
Ask him where the original is!
Okay, sir
What about the cash, sir?
Are they counting it?
Please don't hit me
Tell me, sir
Bring him in front of the camera
Call your accomplice
Call him
I can't bear the pain
It really hurts, Mani
I can't take it any longer
Where are you?
Come soon
Aiyo! I can't take-
I can't take this any longer
Call him loudly
For 26 years I was
vegetating in the same spot
I was wondering why
I came out of that state
You are the answer
standing before me
Your father snatched my youth
and passed it on to you
Are you wondering who I am?
Heaven's gates are open for you
Go and meet your father there
Ask him
Your mother will also welcome you
Ask her too
When you ask them
focus on their eyes
The fear in their eyes will tell you
Who Athreya is!
"Ayushman bhava"
"May you have without strife
a long and healthy life"
"May you live long
Healthy and strong"
Ayushman Bhava!
Did you see his lifeline?
It stretches a mile long!
Such a tragedy to die so young
- Mithra
- Sir?
Remember the hologram?
To charge the watch...
...the wearer of the watch must pass
electric current through his body
Even in death he is useful
I'll travel 26 years
into the past now
History, achievements, glory,
challenges met in this world...
...shall surrender under my feet!
Come here
You touch the watch too
I want you too along with
the lost memories of all these years
We shall time-travel together
Twenty four
I can't believe it, sir
I was right next to you
And now I'm in my house!
That watch
I swear-
Sir, what happened!?
He defeated us
Sethuraman has won
Why do you think
he named it 'Project 24'?
This watch can only take us
back in time for 24 hours
26 years
It cannot take us to even
yesterday or tomorrow!
What do we do now, sir?
To fix this properly
There is only 1 person in the world
Sethuraman's son
But we killed him, sir
Only now we test
his long lifeline!
Look at the date
Note the time now
We've come back
to the same day
Our Independence Day
has dawned again!
We haven't killed him as yet
He's at home
fast as sleep
2 points to keep in mind
How did he even
find out about us?
The advertisement
He came after he saw it
He will come
He must not see it
As of now, he knows
nothing about us
That advertisement shouldn't be
published in any paper tomorrow
2nd point to note
When he wakes up...
...the watch should
be on his wrist
Otherwise he will suspect
something is amiss
'Today is August 15th'
'Not just our city, the entire nation
is celebrating Independence Day'
'They have organized
various programs'
'Husband endrosed
his wife's secret lover!'
Which is the freebie?
Either one can
make me happy
On this hand?
How is it on this hand?
I did what you asked me to
I hope he didn't see you
No, sir
If he saw you...
...then all our efforts
will go down the drain
I know
I'm sure he didn't see me
But I saw him
On his wrist was
the watch you invented
I looked at it closely
It's working
But the real shocking-surprise is...
...he is a carbon copy of you
Heard that, Priya?
Our son
Resembles me
Like a carbon copy
Let him resemble me
in appearance
But I sincerely pray...his life...
...should be nothing like mine
And that is why...
...even though
I know he is here
I have kept myself
away from him
But a father's heart
aches to hug him, Priya
I wanted to check
if he was okay, just once
So I had sent Mithran
He is healthy and happy it seems...
...and surrounded by good people
As his parents...
...what more can we ask for?
How, sir?
If I fixed the watch
on the wrong hand...
...how did you guess right
he would follow me here?
If he is Sethuraman's son...
...I am Sethuraman's elder brother!
This is quite a huge task
Do you think he can do it?
Only he can do it
Not having seen his father
or known his father's profession
...he grew up as a bright lad
But now
Look at the profession
he has chosen for himself
He is a watch mechanic
Sethuraman's blood
runs in his veins
He will definitely
do the impossible!
If we simply ask him
to tweak the watch
Or threaten him
Will he do it for us?
I shall go
I shall enter his life
as his long lost father
I'll tell him about his mother
And make him yearn
to see her again
I'll tell him the cruel story of
how 'Athreya' destroyed his family
Then he will do it for 'his father'!
You saw how emotional he was
seeing his mother's photo
For his biological mother
He will do it for her
He will do it
to cure 'his father'
I'll make him do it!
Any fool can use the watch
while it is on his hand
Without even wearing the watch
watch how I get my work done!
I can't believe it
My son has suddenly
become enlightened
He has got up as early as
6 in the morning!
Must thank the good spirits!
I don't want to jinx it
What's wrong?
What happened?
Why are your eyes red?
What happened?
I'm not dying to know
who these people are
I'm asking because it pains me
to know I may not be your son
Who are we, ma?
This is your father
As you grew up...
...I realised this
looking at your face
He thrust you into my arms
and changed my life forever
You asked who we are
Let me rewind
to my past
Our family is well respected
in our village
My father, brother,
Very close knit family
I was the apple
of everyone's eyes
My father believed
girls should also be educated
And contribute to our society
So he sent me to
a nearby city to study
One day I got a letter
from my father
He had found a suitable
groom for me
And asked me to
come back at once
'This journey would change
my life's path forever'
'I didn't know then'
I saw your father, hurt all over,
carrying you as a baby in his arms
'He gave you safely
into my arms'
'I have promised my wife
our son will not be harmed'
'But I am not in a position
to uphold my vow'
'You should save my son'
'He said this and
he rushed out'
'I never saw him again'
My father came to
the station to receive me
Along with my brother, sis-in-law,
the groom's family members
And all the kith and kin
we ever knew
A real big crowd
When they were
all waiting for me...
...I alighted with
a baby in my arms
Everyone was shocked
including my father
People jumped to conclusions
If a girl is sent out of town
to study before she is married...
...this is how she will come back
Their comments were
below the belt
When I recall their harsh words
even now I feel heavy hearted
Everyone at home fought with me
It was almost like world war 3!
'Will our villagers digest this
even if we believe you?' they asked
'Will the groom to-be
accept this baby?'
'Will his family agree?' they asked
I told my father
'Father, a promise should never
be broken, come what may'
'You brought me up
to follow this strictly'
'I gave this baby's father my word
I would take care of him forever'
This is what I told my father
These were the last words
I spoke to him till date
I carried you to my room
You cried the whole night
wanting to be nursed
I couldn't bear your pain
and I wept too
Finally I decided
Without becoming a mother
I nursed you myself
That is when I realised
the value of motherhood
I forgot I was a daughter
I decided to be your mother
I did not want any problem
to arise because of my son
So I left the house
I was born in
From that day onwards...
...you are the centre of
my entire universe
Let me confess now
Like you did to
your biological mother...
...you did not kick
in my womb
But for 26 years, I have
carried you in my heart!
I am your mother
Whatever anyone may say
I am your mother
Let them say what they want
I am your real mother
Don't cry, son
Look at me
Take me to your father
I have to tell him
I promised you I would
take care of your son
I must tell him
I've kept my word
Take me to him
I lost them before knowing
the meaning of those words
That isn't a big deal
Because ever since I can remember...
...you have been my mother,
father, my everything
But you...
...lived for 20 years
with your parents
You were brought up
with such love and care
You gave it all up for me
You raised me all by yourself
Who can be more important
to me than you, ma?
Forget the people
I never really had
But I must reunite you
with your family
That is my priority
Your activities have been
fishy right from the start
Silly fellow!
How are you, dear?
Your grandson
Come here
In 1 day you took
your mother away from us
But to bring her back...
...it took you so long, huh?
Why are you standing there?
Give your grandpa a hug
This is your grandfather
Father broke his vow
Why should we wait?
It's 6'o clock
- Sis-in-law?
- Sathya
How have you been?
Let us all go inside
You forgot all of us, didn't you?
(Overlap of excited voices)
Who is this, grandpa?
This is your great-grandfather
The school you saw
on your way here?
He built that school
This is your-
Who is this?
She looks like a square peg
in a round hole!
That girl?
Your uncle's daughter
- Really?
- Sathyabama!
Your mother wasn't with me
So I named my granddaughter
after your mother
She is somewhere around
I think she has gone out
She will be back now
Brilliant girl
Nobody can fool her
Soooper smart
Where is everyone?
Didn't even tell me their program
Good lord!
Has it started again?
Lord Muruga...Muruga, help me
He predicted this would happen
I was fine
all these days
I told you so!
You have Imaginoromansophilia!
Why me...?
As it is I'm not well
You're adding fuel
to the fire
Oh my God!
You could hear me?
Look at me
First, you saw me
when I wasn't even there
That means you fell in love with me
That's symptom #1
And now
You can hear me
That's symptom #2
What does this mean?
Love has gone beyond
redemption stage
- I won't believe this
- Why not?
Love and I are
poles apart
- That too fall for you?
- Most certainly
What else can it be?

- There's more?
- Yeah!
What is it?
Let's check if you have a desire
to get married immediately
I have no such desire
Never make decisions in haste
We share he same wavelength!
I don't like you loving me
without my permission!
Okay, forget that
What has happened, has happened
Let's do the litmus test
What if...
...you are able to
see my mother?
It means you want to
become part of my family
And the desire to marry me
is overflowing from your heart
How can I see your mother?
Maybe...I guess I love you
I can see you and hear your voice
when you are not even there
But your mother
That's too much!
Wow! You are very sharp
What if you can see my mother
through that window?
What if...?
- What!?
- Oh God!
- I can really see her
- What crap!
You're dying to marry me
So you're lying glibly
I swear on my mother
I can see your mother!
You really can?
Don't worry
One last test
For symptom #4
Another test?
This is the most
beautiful test of all
Alright, tell me
This test will tell us if you want to
have kids immediately after marriage!
Where am I?

Come downstairs
You go...I'll join you in a while
I'm really sick

Mani, come here

Yes, mathaji!?
How can I help you?
Look who's here
She came home, remember?
I gave her my sari

I get a lot of customers
How will I remember?
Sorry, don't feel bad that
I don't remember you
Remember that sari
I bought in Saravana Stores
for your wife-to-be, pink one?
We gave it to her?
What was it?

Grandpa's favorite watch
Sorry, basically I'm a watch mechanic
I never remember a customer's face
I remember only the model of watch
I added the date device, right?
Is the watch working?
By the way, I'm Mani
Your cousin
Yes, grandpa?
I'll be there
He's showing me some more photos
I'll be downstairs
Can you lend me a hand
to place my box on the shelf?
That is not the done-
A boy entering a girl's room?
How can a guest be asked to wor-
Just help her, son
Anni, I can't believe
this coincidence
Ma, I have a sore throat
How was that?
Symptom #1
2, 3, 4...!
Do you know
symptom #5?
I wasn't taught this
in my school
Don't know?
The patient suffering from this disease
is able to see the guy she's in love with
Do you know what
she will do to him?
Gorge his eyes
Punch his nose
Rip his ear apart
Break his hand
I think the imaginophilia
has left you for good
- HUH?
- Yeah!
We both are in
the Romansophilia mode
In your happy moments of reunion
...as a close knit family
...I told you my story
And upset all of you
Not at all, sir
You just opened your heart to us
That's all, right?
All of us tremble with fear on hearing
your elder brother Athreya's name
We feel so terrible
listening to your story
Imagine how you must be feeling
haivng experienced it
He tried to kill his twin
for materialistic gains
And his twin's wife
Men like Athreya
should be tortured to death
He should have lived and
been traumatized every second
Died a million deaths-
- Raghu
- Sorry, pa
How can we change
what has already happened?
All we can hope is
a better future
'For 26 years I was
vegetating in the same spot'
'I was wondering why
I came out of that state'
'My son'
'You are the answer
standing before me'
I think I was holding
on to my last breath...
...by the blind faith
I would see you again
I have no words to thank you
I just wanted to see
my son again one last time
That's why I'm here
I have seen him now
to my heart's content
I am at peace with myself
Be happy, son
I'll take leave now
I'll leave, sir
- Mithra
- Sir
Let's go
What is this, Sethuraman?
You can't leave when you have
just come into our lives
My daughter has come back
after so many years
My grandson is here!
The pain of being separated
from your own child
As a father, I know it
only too well
My father is right
Won't your son want to
spend a few days with you?
Listen to me, Sethuraman
Don't forget you are
also part of this family
Take your father inside
- Alright
- This is your house
Come in, Sethuraman
Forgive us for
disturbing you
We didn't expect a tree would fall
and destroy the school building
We need to rebuild
as soon as possible, sir
What you say is right
I can't deny it
Varadarajan, father and I have
been discussing the issue
We don't know how we can get
this huge an amount all of a sud-
Please come in, Sethuraman
Small problem with our school
We are trying to resolve it
That's all
I heard everything
How much would you need
to rebuild the school?
Around 10 to 15
Around 15 million
No worries
Let it be my contribution
Please start the work
as soon as possible
We cannot accept it
Why should you?
Why not?
It isn't my money
It is your grandson's money
Please accept it
Alright, as you please
Problem solved
- Happy now?
- Thank you, sir
I'm speechless
15 million
Such a boon to
our school kids
Thank you so much, uncle
- Sathya
- Uncle?
Open that briefcase and
give me the check book
I'll give it to grandpa
and be right back
Give me the check
I think I've got
the date wrong
Give it to me
I have to check the amount
Everything is correct
Including your signature
Give me that cheque
You are Athreya
Give it to me
You destroyed that family
Give it to me
Mani, open the door
Father, you'll be fine
Just 1 minute
Your dad gave me
For the school fund
What is it, son?
I just came to see
if you wanted to go down
I could take you
What is it, uncle?
Do you need anything?
Mani's room is over there
I came to meet you
What is it?
Mani is in love with you
His actions make it obvious
His life will be beautiful
if you share it with him
That's why
I came to ask you
how you feel about him
Shall I talk on your behalf
to the elders of the house?
Yes, please do
I'm very happy
You sleep now
- Good night, uncle
- Good night
Why are you out alone
at this time of night?
You could've called me
Let's go to your room, sir
What a performance, sir
Now way anyone in this house
will see through our plan
You fooled everyone completely
If I didn't know better...
...just like all these people
I would've also believed you
One can pretend to be sad
But harboring so much
sadness in your heart
How are you pretending
to be so happy, sir?
To know you may live
only for few more weeks
How are you able
to take it so easy?
Your son must know, sir
He is your son
A very talented watch mechanic
You only need to say the word!
He'll do it for you
He will do it to meet
the mother he never saw
He will finetune the watch
to go back 26 years
You won't tell anyone the truth
Neither will you let me do it
And you have decided to
leave this place tomorrow
Sorry, sir
I'm saying all this out of helplessness
at being unable to help you
Forgive me if I spoke
out of turn
Good night, Mithra
Alright, sir
Good night
Within 24 hours this watch
can travel anywhere
Why can't it travel
beyond 24 hours?
What must I do?
What's missing?
What is it, son?
For you
For your sake
I have finetuned it
It will now suit your need
I have made a small change
to your extraordinary invention!
Your watch has a needle that adjusts
time within 24 hours only
But it has no date
to help it extend through days
I have only added that feature
Using this, you can
time travel across days
Time travel across months
Or even across years
For me?
Why, son?
Did I ask?
Whenever I look
at this watch...
I remember only how
I lost everything
But you have...
...for my sake
Give it to me
Father, like you wanted to
now you can go back 26 years
Do you remember the date
and time you need to go to?
I am Athreya
You ask if I remember
the time and date?!
How could I ever forget?
13th January, 1990
It was 5:00 p.m
That was the day...
...I thought with this watch
I can play God
And ended up like a vegetable!
That was the day
he died along with your mother
They were both killed
By ME...!
I'll leave now
Once again
To the same day
To the same time
The man who made me
end up like this
Your father
Your mother
Not forgetting you
I will kill all 3 of you
I will be the 1st person in this world
to kill the same man twice
I am indeed lucky
That's ME
HEY uncle!
I'm a watch mechanic
All this is child's play for me
If you are Sethuraman's elder brother...
...I am Sethuraman's son!
Even if you lied glibly
...I suspected foul play
when I saw my father's 6th finger
Didn't it occur to you?
One who fixes the watch
Won't he check
before giving it?
That's why
This is the second time
I'm living this day!
Why do you think I gave you
that dummy watch?
Even I know I must
go back 26 years
But the date and the time
Only you are privy
to that information
Now I will travel to my past
For my mother and father
Not only for them
But for this mother
who raised me as well
I owe it to you
I...I am...back
Tell these men to find a tunnel at
the third bend and enter the house
Tell these men to cut
the electricity at the house
You come with me
'Where is our baby?'
'Where is he?'
'He is in the secret room'
What are you looking for?
I was doing my experiment
The watch is missing
It must be here
Just 2 minutes
I'll feed him
and help you search
The watch is on the baby's hand
And you're rummaging everywhere
Here you go
I've brought your milk for you
Are you hungry?
Are you hungry, baby?
Look at your father
He fixed the watch on your hand
and is searching for it high and low
He's searching under the table
He's searching on
top of the table
Right, baby?
You agree?
Why are you staring at me?
I went away
only for 5 minutes
In 5 minutes did you miss
your mother so much?
You missed me so soon
My pet you are!
The watch is working
I did it
I did it!
my sweet, sweet darling
Your son is the world's
first time traveler!
What are you saying?
He has come back
from the future
With memories
of 26 years
He has returned as our baby
Hello, little prince
Let me hold you
My moppet!
The watch is on his hand
That means he was the user
Yes, Priya
Look here
This date device was
not part of my design
He has added it
But why did he do that?
He has come back from 2016
to this specific day
What is the reason?
What if...he's trying
to tell us something?
If what you say is true and
he wanted to tell us something
...he would have chosen
a date he can talk
Perhaps when he is able
to talk, we were not alive?
Take this
Hey! Kalai
Lock the gate
Nobody should go out
Okay, sir
I'll take care
Stay here
This time he should not
get the better of us
Okay, sir
Dear brother of mine!
My fountainhead
My fruit of knowledge
Where are you?
Once again, I wish you and me
a very happy birthday, Sethu
I've come back 26 years
just to see you again
I have come by experiencing
the power of your invention, Sethu
Where are you?
You must have run away
and hidden, hearing my voice
Are you trying to
charge the watch?
You can't
I have come here after cutting
the electricity to this house
My brother
My heart is dying to see you!
I'm longing to hug you tight
Kiss you
Take a knife in my hands
And stab you repeatedly
Until you bleed to death
Where are you?
I got a sudden brainwave
You are my younger brother
My blood
I only want that watch
Give it to me
And I will not harm you
or your wife and son
I'll just take it
and be on my way
You believe anything I say?
Am I such a nice guy?
Where is your son?
Tell me
Where is he?
Where have you hidden him?
He's worse than I am
Where is he?
Let us go
He's inside, right?
Don't hurt us
You must die, Sethu
There should be only 1 watch
And it must be mine!
(baby crying)
No, please
Come here
Priya, come
Mithra, where are you?
What are you doing?
Son, till now we heard
numbers in reverse
Now letters in reverse, okay?
Both of you stay here
For a little while
- Sethu!
- I will be fine
Trust me
I have to charge the watch
1 minute only
- Look, if I charge it
- Don't go, Sethu
I can fix everything
It is closeby
- Don't go
- I'll be fine
Where will you charge it?
Watchman's cabin will have electricity
Wait here
Athreya sir
Over here
I have him here for you
He's here, sir
Kalai, leaving you alive
this time was a good choice!
For the last time
May you live-
Athreya sir?
What is it?
Let's not keep this watch!
We have gone through hell
Throw it away
Please, Sethu
May we sit here?
By all means
Please do
Such a beautiful baby
What's his name?
We call him Mani
Mani darling!
Come here
He is coming to me
so willingly
What is it, baby?
Do you know me?
Where are you going?
To start a new life
Just like me!
My father has finalized my wedding
- Is that so?
- Congrats!
Thank you
What happened?
Nothing serious
On the way
What work do you do?
I'm basically a-
Science teacher?
My father has just started
a school in our village
He's looking out for
a good science teacher
Why don't you
take up that post?
You said you were
starting a new life
Why not start that life
in our Gopalasamudram?
What do you think, son?
Shall we go?
Will you come?
Will you come with me?
He says he'll come
Mani darling!
Mani dearest
Where are you, son?
Where has he gone?
Where else?
As usual, wherever Sathya is,
he'll be playing with her
Let them play for a while, Priya
He keeps calling you 'mathaji'
And flatters you all the time
And while you melt
he gets away with everything
You pamper him way too much
Now look, Sathyabama
At such a young age...
...you should not get
Among girls of your age group,
this is a very popular disease
If you look at a Barbie doll
you'll see only me!
When you see Tom & Jerry,
you will see only me
When you read a Tinkle comic,
even there you'll see only me!
I will finish my studies and
become a famous watch mechanic
You are loving me
without my permission
I don't like it one bit
If you want fall in love with me
talk to my mom and mathaji
I will marry the girl
both of them choose for me
Because I'm a watch mechanic
Stop crying!
Stop crying
"24 carat gold"
"Most precious I am told"
"24 carat gold"
"Sky is the limit
for the Daredevil's antics"
