Anand (1971) Movie Script

Writers in our country are
improving day by day.
Formerly they used to come
for the literary meet on cycles...
but now they arrive by cars.
I owned a cycle too last year...
but I had to sell it off
to publish my novel.
Let's go
- Yes.
Respected chairman, Dr Banerjee,
Dr Kulkarni and Gentleman...
I thank Rustomji Petit trust through
this literary association for...
announcing the Saraswati award
and encouraging the writers.
This award is given to the
best book of the year.
This year the most amazing
fact is that...
this is the writer's
first work.
And the writer is a doctor.
Doctor Bhaskar Banerjee.
He's not only famous in his
Medicine field and alcohol...
Please mention only medicine.
Forgive me, Dr Banerjee is well
known for his medicines and...
not for alcohol.
He is a remarkable cancer
In spite of being surrounded
by such situations...
writing a novel like ''Anand''
is very astonishing.
Before giving away the award
I request Dr Banerjee...
to say a few words
about his novel 'Anand'.
Where and how did he find
the inspiration to write it.
Excuse me but I don't know
what to say...
Frankly speaking, I'm no writer.
My habit of writing begins
and ends with my diary.
And what you assume as my
story or novel...
are a few extracts from
my diary.
If you feel that Anand is
fiction or my imagination...
then the fault lies in my writing.
It is in fact my failure.
Anand loved to make friends.
Every place he went,
he was in search of a friend.
That's why I published
my novel.
So that his friendship should
spread throughout the world.
When I first met Anand my
mind was not stable.
I was very disappointed with
my medical profession.
After watching all kinds of
diseases, poverty and disaster
I had lost all hopes in life.
I was helpless.
I could combat diseases, but how
could I deal with hunger and poverty.
I tried to battle but didn't
have the right weapons.
I noticed that lakhs of
people lacked in vitamins.
But when they were starving
what was the use of vitamins.
Medicines could cure diseases
but not poverty.
Yet after so many years of
people don't have the money
to buy salt.
How can I ask them to buy
- It's not in my hands.
Doctor, please do something.
- What can I do. Am I God?
Go and pray.
Doctor, have some sweets
Laxmi had a baby boy.
My grandson.
One just died and another
is born ready for death.
I admit that life is
stronger than death.
But isn't this life worse
than death.
When I took my degree from
college, I vowed to save lives.
And now at every step I
feel I'm trying to save death.
- Yes?
Won't you have your meals?
You have it uncle. If I feel
like it, I'll eat later.
What kind of a doctor are you?
Your father was a doctor too.
He used to work day and night,
but he never ignored food.
He also made money and bought
this property.
You're not interested
in money making.
You're only working hard.
Your friend Prakash has
built such a large hospital.
Raghu uncle leave me alone.
Will you do me a favor?
- What?
Bring a daughter-in-law in
this house...
then I shall go back
to my village.
I mean it.
I have brought you up...
so I can't watch your
condition nor leave you alone.
Hey, Raghu uncle.
Come on serve me food.
It's better than marriage.
Park the car ahead.
Hello doctor.
- Please wait, I'm examining him.
I'm in a hurry.
- You can come tomorrow.
Fine, I shall wait then.
Take this address and
get an X-Ray done.
Is it necessary for an
I am giving two more
music lessons...
So my throat must have ripped
and it's bleeding now.
Anything can happen, but go
and get an X-Ray done.
What happened?
- No nothing, but the X-Ray...
you know my condition.
You don't have to pay.
I'll call him.
Dr Prakash Kulkarni.
Go and meet him.
Doctor, have my reports come?
Yes. Please be seated.
You're perfectly all right.
You look disappointed.
- No.
Dr Kulkarni mentioned that
you're a cancer expert.
Expert in what. In giving
cancer or curing it.
It's alright doctor. But I've
developed a new complication.
I don't get sleep and
I feel tired during the day.
Give me some good medicine.
You love to take medicines,
don't you?
If I give you some colorful
capsules or tablets...
Or tell you a medicine
which is unavailable...
then you'll be satisfied and
believe I'm a good doctor.
If you can give me some
medicine, then do so...
else there's no
dearth of doctors.
Please leave.
What's your consultation fees?
I take fees for medicines
not for giving some sense.
Dr Kulkarni, please.
Dr Banerjee.
Prakash, I'm Bhaskar here.
I'm sending a boy for an X-Ray.
His name is Ranjit.
Examine him.
Do you have the samples of
streptomycin. Keep some for me.
Whose letter?
- Trivedi.
The Gynecologist from Delhi,
he's writing after a long time.
I'm going to the laboratory
in the afternoon...
and I'll be there
by 4.00 p.m.
- Good morning, Dr Banerjee.
Is Dr Kulkarni in.
- Yes, he's waiting for you.
Remember Mrs Sanyal take the
green and red capsules together...
and after half an hour the
pink tablets.
Next the green and yellow capsules...
and half an hour later
the pink tablets.
And yes, the white tablets
that I prescribed, continue them...
one in the morning
and in the evening.
I'm sorry.
- No problem, Bhaskar, come in.
I forgot to mention one thing.
Something's wrong with me
these days...
I feel frightened.
- Why?
I had my blouses stitched
last month and they're tight now.
It's a sanfrize material.
No, Mrs Sanyal don't
neglect it.
I want to check your blood
cholesterol. Come next Saturday.
Oh no, not Saturday,
I've a kitty party.
Can't I come on Friday?
Friday,... let me check.
Fine. Friday morning 9.00 a.m.
- Okay.
Here's the check for last
month of 500/- rupees.
Thank you.
- Eh!
I mean for this check.
It's alright, doctor. Bye Bye.
Come, Bhaskar...
please be seated.
You're telling her about blood
cholesterol, what does she know?
You will always remain a doctor.
If I don't create an impression,
how will she gain confidence?
I know what you'd have told
her had she come to you.
The same thing that you told
Chandranath and made him angry.
Walk 2 hours in the morning
and play 2 hours in the evening...
After 15 days she'd neither
need you nor me.
She'd be playing badminton
and we'd be begging on
the streets.
If you wanted to do this,
why did you pass your medical's?
You could open a shop.
If I'd sell milk
I'd mix water into it...
and if I was a lawyer...
I'd take money from the
conflict and try to save him,
I can reduce their stomach
or toothache in this profession.
Do you think this is right?
There's nothing wrong
with it, Bhaskar.
The boy you sent for an
X-Ray this morning.
Yes, what happened?
There's a T.B. patch
on his left lung.
I told him to come and
get injected everyday.
Do you think he can
afford it...
For such treatments I've
to take money from Mrs Sanyal.
She's not paying free
of charge.
I know she's not sick.
But she's has doubts
about her health...
I cure these doubts.
What's wrong with that.
I understand, Prakash.
But don't you think something
is wrong somewhere.
Forget it. You won't understand
and neither can I make you.
This is Trivedi's letter
and he's sent a case history.
Case history, but whose?
Read it. He's got a friend,
Anand Sehgal.
I met him five years ago
in Delhi.
We became good friends
and he's very jovial.
What's wrong with him?
- Lymphocercoma of the lntestine.
Lymphocercoma. Have they
done a biopsy?
What's the use of
sending him here?
Doesn't Trivedi know
there's no cure?
He knows. But Anand has
no one.
And he's still in the
ambulatory stage.
He can move around
and wants to see Bombay.
And he wants to meet us.
The treatment given there
can be given here too.
This is his X-Ray plate...
have a look.
What's there to see?
ln a few months, there'll
be distention of stomach...
and the tumor will burst.
Or there'll be acute anemia
and he can't breathe.
He'll hardly live for
4 to 6 months.
Sir, one Mr Anand Sehgal
has arrived.
Anand from Delhi. He was
going to come tomorrow.
Send him inside.
- Where will he stay?
I've made arrangements here.
He's Trivedi's best friend.
He'll stay for 3 to 4
months and leave.
As long as he's here
we'll have to...
- Hello, friend.
I told you we'd meet again,
didn't l?
Sit down.
- I heard you're married.
How's your wife?
- Very fine.
Any junior, senior...
- Not yet.
You've been married
for 3 years and...
You don't have
a compounder yet...
Go and consult Trivedi.
- How's Tirvedi?
His family planning is on.
2 is more than enough.
What about his children?
- His children?
Yes, two plus three that's
five which is enough.
Anand, meet Dr Bhaskar
Babumushai. Girls called
you Babumushai in college.
Dr Trivedi told me everything.
I've heard that many girls
had a crush on you.
Anand, you were supposed
to come tomorrow.
It's a habit with me.
When I was born
the doctor had advised...
I'd be born on the
21st but I came early.
If the doctor mentions
the date of my death...
I'll die early.
I've kept my property
in your office.
My suitcase and a
tape recorder.
I've got clothing
but no bed.
Don't worry, your bed is
ready in the cabin above.
You can stay here.
I was showing your
X-Ray to Dr Banerjee.
Oh, my film show was
being held here.
Hey Babumushai, what
did you find?
I'll inform Trivedi,
don't worry about it.
lt concerns me...
why shouldn't I worry?
What do you want to know?
- Tell me the disease.
What will you achieve
by knowing.
I won't, but tell me.
If I tell you, you've
got Lymphocercoma...
What will you understand?
- What? Repeat it.
Lymphocercoma of
the intestine.
Splendid! What a name!
Sounds like a Viceroy's name.
What a great disease.
You're a great doctor,
Lymphocercoma of the
lt sounds like an
announcement on radio.
If women were suffering
from this disease...
it would sound like she's
adopted an English Baby.
This is no joke. Do you know
the meaning of Lymphocercoma.
Do the meaning of
this disease?
There's a dreadful tumor
in my stomach...
and I won't live for more
than 6 months.
Maybe that's the medical
name for it.
But why are you angry
all of a sudden?
I understand. You're not
angry with me but yourself...
because I can't be cured.
So much love is not good.
Can I examine you once?
- Why? What's wrong with me?
Give me your hand.
- The pulse is here.
No chance. What's your age.
- Thirty.
Thirty. If you minus 30 from
100, what remains?
Seventy. You won't live for
more than seventy.
Do you know what's
your problem.
Your body is
deteriorating slowly.
What do you mean?
What's the difference
in 70 years and 6 months.
Death comes in a second.
But in these 6 months I'll
live every moment.
Babumushai, life should be
great... not long.
If you're scared of death...
What's the essence of death?
As long as I'm alive,
I'm not dead.
When I'm dead,
I'm not there.
So why be scared of death?
I'm sorry, Mr Anand.
Babumushai, life is short and
time is fleeting...
We've to live fast.
and be quick...
At least cut down
on the respects.
What's your opinion.
- Fine, he'll do that...
Sister, there's a cabin
above. Take him there...
I'll be coming along.
Anand, you'll be examined
in two days.
Sure. This is the
only examination...
in which the one who gives
is not studying...
but the one who
takes it has to.
Forgive me. Trivedi had
warned me not to joke with you...
but what could I do?
It's a habit.
Bhaskar, he knows he's dying...
Yet he's so lively and...
Maybe that's why he...
What do you think?
Can something be done?
- Nothing, the disease is such...
Until secondary manifestation,
we can't detect anything.
But by then it's too late.
Nothing can be done.
Keep the things here.
If you need anything more,
ring the bell.
Where are you going?
- I'm on duty.
But who'll take care of me?
- I will, don't worry.
Let's sit and talk.
I'm all alone.
Are you scared of
being alone?
No, I'm not. But I want
to someone to talk to.
You can do one thing.
There's a mirror there...
Sit in front of it and talk.
I've tried that. It's boring.
Our Matron will be
coming now, meet her.
She's very sweet.
What are you doing here?
- I was in the cabin...
Don't you know the
visiting hours?
No. I don't.
You can't meet any patient
before 4 o' clock.
And if I want to meet
the doctor?
Go to the office.
You'll know the rules.
Can't we break them sometimes?
All right, but why should
we break rules?
Anand what are you
doing here?
Everyone who comes
here is asking this.
ls this a hospital
or a school?
A teacher asked
the same question.
Now the headmaster.
Doctor, there is no
patient in the cabin.
The patient is very
naughty sister.
You'll have to use a cane
to look after him.
Anand, meet our matron,
Mrs D'sa.
Sister, he's our patient... Anand.
Come, sister. Let's go
to the cabin.
Come in, sister. Please be
seated. So you're the matron.
I heard you talk a lot.
- Shut up.
ls this how you talk?
Didn't you hear me?
Lie down quietly.
One can't die quietly, sister...
we must make a sound.
ln 24 hours, we spend
8 hours sleeping...
and 4 hours in
eating and drinking.
If I live for a year
6 months will be over
If I live for 6,
3 months are over.
If I live for 3
I'll lose one month.
I said shut-up and lie down.
I told you lie down.
Today I met Anand Sehgal
from Delhi.
I felt as if a tornado
had swept into the room.
He laughed and joked
every minute...
Yet knowing that his
death was near.
I wonder if he was
laughing at death or life.
ls Babumushai in?
- Babumushai?
Yes, the doctor.
- Yes, he is. Your name?
Tell him Anand is here.
Mr Anand.
- What did we decide?
Okay. How did you come here?
I ran away. What kind
of a friend are you?
You caged me there and
If you want me there you'll
have to stay with me.
I won't stay alone.
But it's necessary for you.
No, it's not.
If I have to live,
I have to laugh.
I'll fall sick in that
nursing home.
I haven't come for treatment.
I know everything.
I have come to meet
you folks here.
Babumushai, neither do
I have anyone nor do you...
As long as I'm alive
let me stay here.
Yes, you can. But have you
informed the nursing home?
No, I haven't, but I have
left a note for the matron.
Please call my friend
and inform him.
Raghu uncle...
Where's your luggage?
No problems. Raghu uncle
take him upstairs...
make arrangements
in the adjoining room.
I'll call Prakash and
inform him.
Raghu uncle, sit down.
We can check the room later.
Tell me who cooks here?
- Me.
I hope you cook well. I've
two hobbies in life...
Talk and eat. When I talk
a lot, I eat as well.
Can't you see my health?
Come. Take me to the kitchen.
Hello, is Prakash there?
Where's he gone?
This is Banerjee speaking.
At my place, both of them?
Okay, fine.
I'm calling from home.
Come, Prakash,
where's your wife?
She's coming.
How did you know?
I just called your place.
Hello sister-in-law,
you surprised me.
Suman has come to invite you.
lnvite me? I'm fortunate.
What's special?
Three years ago I committed a
mistake, she wants to celebrate.
Oh, your wedding anniversary!
He's smart. He realized
what mistake I meant.
He made the mistake but
I got caught in it.
Come in.
Babumushai. your Raghu Kaka
has made excellent...
I'm caught.
How did you come here?
It's not my fault.
Babumushai forced me to.
I told him you'd be angry
He said he'd explain...
and wouldn't say anything.
Don't be angry with him,
he's all alone.
Yes. I understand.
- You do?
Meet her, she's Suman, my...
Hello, sister-in-law.
Forgive me, I didn't see you.
He's trying
to introduce us.
Actually I came from
Delhi to meet you.
- I had an important work.
What work?
Sing that song which you
did before your marriage...
for my friend.
Why friend. What a
location for a song.
Who told you about it?
As if you don't know.
You must have told him.
I don't like this. You
embarrass me in front of others.
But I really didn't tell him.
Yes, he didn't tell me.
It's astrology.
I can do face reading.
Your father beat you up
before your marriage.
No, never.
Don't lie and don't feel shy.
Remember, you went to
the movies at Metro cinema...
and you'd sit in the
Kit-Kat restaurant opposite...
the cinema and have
food with my friend.
Your father saw you one evening
and beat you up...
Now tell me you didn't
reveal anything.
Yes, tell her.
Trivedi must have told you.
- That means you told Trivedi.
What's the use of fighting now?
Please, Bhabhi (sister-in-law).
Yes, Bhabi
- Yes. Bhabi.
Why are you calling
me Bhabi?
I followed the majority.
I'm telling the truth. I don't
sing. He's just teasing me.
Anand, the day after tomorrow
is our wedding anniversary.
So come with Bhaskar.
- I'll surely.
Bhabhi, which flowers do you like?
I'll get a large bouquet.
You shall not come.
- Why?
We don't accept gifts.
- Do you accept cash.
We are not having a party.
We're just inviting you.
Don't be obliged.
I won't be but you'll
have to.
There should be variety
of food that...
my stomach will
not be empty.
No problem, I'll pack
bags of it for you.
But on one condition.
- What?
You'll have to sing a song now.
I know you sing well.
- How do you know?
The same old astrology.
- You mean face reading?
Yes, I'm her astrologer.
I told her. Come on sing now.
Empty the seat.
Anand, sit in Prakash's office.
I'll be there.
When does the matron come?
Who? Mrs D'sa?
- Yes.
She's already come.
- Then I'm dead.
Why? What happened?
- Nothing, come soon.
Hey, fatso.
Murarilal, how come you're here?
Are you fine?
Didn't you recognize me?
I'm Anand.
We had beer at the Qutub Minar
and we were drunk.
How's your jaggery
business doing?
I'm not Murarilal nor do
I sell Jaggery.
My name is Chandranath and
I sell oil.
So you've started to sell oil.
- I haven't.
It's an ancestral business.
So what, Murarilal? Any business
is equally good.
I told you my name is
What's in a name?
If your name was something else,
would you change?
You'd not, you'd do the same
business and meet me.
Come on. shake hands. I'm glad
to meet you. Are you?
So Mr Chandranath, what's new?
There's a new complication.
A shifting pain.
Shifting pain. I had it too.
There's no better doctor.
I first had it here and...
lt shifted up and
went out from my head.
Where do you have it?
- ln my knees.
I'll take a long time.
Doctor, is there no medicine which
will shift it out from the feet.
Yes, doctor, give me
such a medicine.
It's alright, go to the office
and take an admission.
Fine, I'll do it.
- Don't worry, Murarilal.
My name is not Murarilal!
It's Chandranath.
Anand, do you want to stop
my business?
Why were you teasing him?
Teasing him? No!
I was praising you.
May I come in, sir?
- Matron! Oh my God!
Come in, Mrs D'sa.
Sir, Dr Banerjee is
waiting for you.
What are you doing here?
- I was praying.
Where did you run away?
- Home.
- Dr Banerjee's house.
Why didn't you tell me?
- I was scared.
Do you know Dr Kulkarni
scolded me because of you?
So what? You're scolding me too.
You talk too much.
- Yes, I do. That's why I ran away.
I can't survive without talking...
and you told me to lie
down quietly.
Am I strict for my well being.
I have to take care of kids
like you.
Doesn't a mother scold her
Yes, I realized that later.
Why does everyone call
you sister?
They should call you Mother.
Mother Matron.
You'll listen to this
Yes, we're friends now, mother.
Then come to the cabin.
No, not to the cabin.
I'll perish there alone.
Take me to your house.
I'll tie you up.
- No one can tie me up mummy.
I'll go away on my own.
Good morning, Mrs D'sa.
Good morning, doctor.
Will Anand stay with you?
Yes. He doesn't like your
nursing home.
Wherever he stays, he wins
over people.
He was just saying,
why do people call you sister?
They should call you
Mother Matron.
He's right.
Dr Banerjee, what has
happened to him?
He... Lymphocercome of the
Oh! ls it in the first stage?
Will he be alright?
No, sister, he's in the last stage.
God bless you. Let God bless
you with enough children.
Who? Me or God?
- Aren't you ashamed?
What did I say? When one grows up,
there'll be a young one...
and when he does there'll
be another one...
Keep quiet.
You utter anything.
You're making fun of God.
Mrs D'sa
- Please come in.
You didn't invite me, but how
can I forget your anniversary?
Your favorite flowers.
No, I'll give it to both
of you together, Sir.
You're very partial, Mrs D'sa
you call me sir....
and her your daughter.
I won't call you Sir today.
I'll pray to God for your happiness.
God bless you, dear.
- Come.
No, bow your head first or
else you'll say I'm partial.
Now get ready.
Why should l? Only Anand
and Bhaskar will be here.
ls Anand coming too?
- Yes.
I'll be leaving then.
- Why?
From the time I've heard of
his disease, I can't face him.
What's wrong with him?
Nothing, he'll be alright.
- I'll be leaving sir.
Sir again.
- Oh, I shall leave, dear.
Please have some sweets.
I've to go to the church.
Don't you know I don't eat
unless I light the candles.
Fine, I shall be leaving.
- Yes?
What's wrong with Anand?
- He's sick, he'll be fine.
Then why was Mrs D'sa
scared to face him.
She's like that, a little
She's scared of every
Mrs D'sa is a strict
I'm sure it's serious,
that's why you're hiding.
The priest has not yet
finished his chanting...
and the bride is besides
the groom.
Tell me one thing, what
treatment is he giving you?
What's wrong with you?
- A normal cold.
Tell me the truth don't joke.
That's the problem. I told
you the Hindi term for it...
But if I say in medical terms
like Lymphocercoma of the Nose...
you'll believe me.
- You're lying.
I'm not your brother.
You're my sister-in-law.
I'm not. I'm your sister
and you're my brother.
Fine. Henceforth I shall
call you by your name Suman.
Enough, brother-in-law,
be seated.
What's wrong with you
all of a sudden?
He's standing from such
a long time.
Aren't you ashamed?
How will he feel?
Suman, he's right. You're my sister
and he's my brother-in-law...
let him call me that.
Bhaskar, I know you won't lie.
Tell me the truth.
What's wrong with Anand?
Why're you asking him?
Doctors know nothing.
Don't worry about me.
An astrologer told me I'll
survive till 80.
I've not been interviewed
as yet.
So you believe in
astrologers and Sadhus too.
Why not?
- Will you come with me?
I've have a tutor, he's
a famous sadhu.
Mouni baba, he doesn't talk.
Oh God, I'm dead.
Doesn't he ever talk?
No, I've sent many
people to him.
So nowadays all your
patients go to him.
No wonder he was complaining
that his business is not good.
Don't joke, will you come?
- Sure. Your teacher is mine too.
'Prasad'. Pray for us.
Do you have to tell us.
I always pray for you.
I have called you my brother,
so let me take your blessings.
Bless me. I'll prepare
some tea for you.
What can I bless you with?
I can't even request God
to give my life to you.
Hey, Babumushai...
when did you come?
Did you hear my song quietly?
- Yes.
Did you like it?
- Beautiful, but a little sad.
lsn't melancholy beautiful,
Yes, but I've always
seen you smiling that's why...
Does that mean every
smile is full of joy...
Sometimes sorrow is also...
Anand, you always share your
joy with others...
Share your sorrows
with me today.
No, Babumushai, I'll never
share it with anyone.
Forgive me, I'm selfish
in this matter.
Anand suddenly stopped
while telling me something...
He hid his sorrows from me.
Maybe that sorrow is the
essence of his life today...
Otherwise how is it possible
for a man...
who is deteriorating day by day,
to have such a stable mind?
I don't what he's sad about,
but I didn't pry...
but if it this power which
keeps him alive...
then let his pains be
concealed forever.
Take his blessings.
Baba, he's my brother.
He's sick. Make him well.
Wait, Suman.
You're getting your work done.
Let me talk to Baba first.
How can you talk to him?
Didn't I tell you he doesn't?
He's vowed not to.
You had. But, Baba, have you
taken a life-long oath.
Won't you ever speak?
I'm dead. I'll never
be able to talk to you.
Tell me, Baba; doesn't it
trouble you to remain quiet?
I'll die if I stay
quiet for five minutes.
Don't waste his time.
Baba, bless my brother.
I'm sure, if you wish he'll
become alright.
Can he do that?
- Yes, he can.
Baba, can't you do something
that I can live for 200 years...
and as long as I live no
disease should affect me.
I shouldn't fall sick...
and the thermometer of all my
doctor friends should stand still.
What does that mean?
What is dying is my body.
Baba, then why should I ask
you for such a small thing?
The thing that is dying
is my body.
Bless my mind so that I'll smile
and make others smile too.
Baba, bless me so that l
should talk as much as I can...
let me talk good about others
and not bad even by mistake.
Will it be so, Baba?
Why don't you leave the onions alone?
Why are you after it...
I'm not. It's after me.
lt had made me cry.
Why did you come into
the kitchen? I'll do it.
Go to your room.
You can push me out now...
but you won't be able to when
she comes and takes over...
That day is not in my fate.
I'm not talking about you Raghu
uncle, I'm talking of Munna.
I was saying the same. Can
I get married at this age?
Why don't you get him married?
- But he should agree.
Find a good girl for him.
I'll coerce him.
He won't listen. A nice
lady used to come here...
she no longer does.
Who was she?
She was nice and I think
Munna liked her too.
But you know how he is.
Tell me, will any girl
propose to a man.
Set a wedding date, bring
a priest along...
and catch Munna and get him
married. Will it ever happen?
No, never.
Munna doesn't understand.
He's doing social service...
and is never bothered
about himself.
Babumushai, what are you doing alone?
Come, let's go out.
But where?
- Anywhere, come let's go.
Come. No one can
argue with you.
But not by your car.
- Then?
From here to Victoria Terminus
and terminus to Victoria.
That means a horse carriage.
- Why?
A Victoria has it's own
lt feels like the ancient
rich are arriving like some...
Lucknowi Raibahadur
Murarikhan sharif.
Come, Babumushai, let's go.
You'll have to wait for
the bus for an hour.
So what, Babumushai?
- Hey, Murarilal...
Didn't you recognize me? We
had beer at Qutub Minar and...
we were drunk...
You're mistaken, I've
never been to Delhi.
Your memory is very weak.
I'm telling the truth. My name
is not Murarilal, but Jagdish.
I have a friend named Murarilal
and he resembles you...
So what? I've met another
Murarilal on this pretext...
Shake hands, I'm glad to
meet you. Aren't you...
Don't forget me.
Go now.
Anand, you should have seen
whether he was Murarilal or not.
I don't know anyone by
the name of Murarilal...
So what? I felt like
meeting him and I met him.
Do you ever feel that you
don't know a person...
who has helped you and
yet you never liked him?
At times you may meet a person
who has never helped you...
but yet you like him.
Yes, but why?
Yes, tell me why.
Because he...
I'll tell you. Every human body
is a transmitter and a receiver.
There was a vibration from
Jagdish's body and I received it.
It's a great theory,
If you do research, you'll
win a Noble prize.
What's this craziness.
Babumushai, you call this crazy.
You meet a man, make friends
and touch him...
What else do you need? Look...
there's one more Murarilal.
Where are you going?
Stand here.
Babumushai, Murarilal...
Sir, please buy flowers
for your wife.
Babumushai, shall I buy them
for my sister-in-law.
Yes, let us.
Give me two, but they
should be fragrant.
I get them from the gardens, sir.
- What, garlands.
No, flowers.
- Say that.
If I hadn't bought these
flowers, you'd never tell me.
Tell me who is she?
Where does she live?
Whom are you talking about?
I thought it was for Suman.
Don't avoid it. Tell me where
does she live and who is she?
Whom are you talking about?
The girl with whom
you have your continuity...
What continuity?
ln Hindi, it's Love
and in Bengali too.
Ladies and Gentleman.
There are young men who...
know nothing about love.
- Anand! What are you doing?!
Then tell me.
- There's nothing to reveal.
Lies again.
Ladies and Gentleman...
You're blackmailing me.
- Black or white.
You'll have to tell me.
What should I tell?
- Who is she?
There must be someone
who makes your heart beat.
Babumushai, you're eyes reveal
that there is someone.
Babumushai, tell me please.
You know that I...
She was my patient and
was suffering from pneumonia...
While giving her treatment I...
I understand. What's her name?
- Renu.
Where does she live?
- She teaches in a school.
Did you kiss her?
- What?!
Did you ever kiss her?
- Naughty.
What are you shy about?
- Anand, don't be silly.
This is strange Bengali love.
Love should be like that.
Who is it?
ls the doctor in?
- Yes, he is.
Can you call him?
- I will, surely.
Please be seated.
Tell me what's your problem.
Don't be worried.
Our doctor is a magician.
The moment he touches you
the patient get's up...
and starts playing cricket.
But you're a girl;
you'll play badminton.
You're laughing.
I'm telling you the truth.
You won't find a doctor
like him.
Anand, whom are you
talking to?
Renu! You here?
- I'm dead.
What dead? Renu, he's my
best friend, Anand.
Babumushai, isn't she that
continuity one.
For whom your heart beats
and you spend sleepless nights?
Anand! What's going on?
No, you didn't tell me you
spend sleepless nights but...
Renuji, you teach at a school.
- Yes.
You suffered from pneumonia.
- Yes.
And he cured you.
- Yes.
How do I know?
He told me everything.
He's very shy and timid.
- Anand.
Sorry, I can't call her
my sister-in-law as yet.
But why are you yelling at me?
You're in love with the
girl and can't you tell her.
Will you please shut up?
When Salim and Anarkali
are quiet about it...
Mughal-E-Azam is doing
the talking.
But Renuji, I'm telling the truth.
He's in love with you.
I'm leaving now.
I hope you didn't believe Anand.
- No.
Why didn't you, he spoke
the truth.
What I couldn't reveal so long
my friend has done so.
But Renu if these feelings
are not reciprocal, tell me...
So I won't be embarrassed later.
You're friend was right;
you're really timid.
That's it. Everything was perfect.
Now that Anand has broken
the barriers...
I feel like revealing all
that has pent up in my heart.
Then do so.
- Let's go out. Shall we?
Are you going somewhere?
Yes, Anand, we were going
for a walk. Will you join us?
What are you gaping for?
Will you join us?
Yes, I'll come.
Let me get my coat.
Why did you call him?
- I was being courteous.
ldiot! He agreed immediately.
No problem, we'll leave.
Why do I need a coat?
Come, Babumushai... let's go.
Did you notice the color
of the water?
lt looks like the evening
sun has melted and...
Hell! I feel as though a
small boy has fallen down...
and hurt his nose and is
bleeding profusely.
You fool, if you love the
girl, hold her hand...
and propose to her.
Why are you showing
her the sea and the sky.
I hate you.
I've never seen this
friend of yours before.
He came a month ago from
Delhi for treatment.
What happened?
It's a fatal disease.
Do you know...
he won't survive for
more than 2 to 3 months.
Unless God shows some Miracle.
You never believed in God.
I feel like believing in Him.
I don't mind believing in
anyone just for Anand's sake.
He's so jovial.
Please don't tell him.
He knows. He knows everything.
And yet...
No wonder even the Gods
can't live without him.
Come, Bhaskar.
So early in the morning?
Didn't Anand come along.
- No.
He's gone to the police station.
- Police station? Why?
He was going somewhere
when I asked, he replied...
I'm going to the police
station, Babumushai...
to get a warrant against you.
He was just joking.
I told him many a times not
to go out alone...
You never tell me anything
about Anand.
What's happened to him?
Get an extra cup for
Bhaskar first.
Be seated.
Prakash, I've some bad news.
- Why, what happened?
We'll have to inform
Trivedi soon.
Anand will not be able
to move around for long.
What's this? Will you
treat him with just tea?
What would you like to have?
Oh! Do you have to ask him.
The cake that we got
Will you cut it next year
on your birthday?
You're always after me.
Trivedi had called up
from Delhi yesterday.
Anand has written a
long letter to him.
He's written that unless he
fixes up your wedding...
and finishes his work...
Unless he completes his work
he will not return to Delhi but...
not go anywhere else.
Prakash, one thing puzzles me.
How can his relatives
live without him?
I wouldn't be able to
stay without him for a day.
Anand doesn't have anyone,
What do you mean by no one?
There must be some relative.
No, he's an orphan who came
to Delhi during the partition...
He lived with his relatives
for sometime.
When he started earning,
he ran away.
His relatives always thought
he was trying to run away.
He loves Suman a lot, he
told her everything.
He also said, wish one could
choose friends...
as one could his relatives.
He also said that after
meeting us...
he has started believing
in long lasting relationships.
Trust me, as much as we
worry about him...
the more he worries about us.
I know Prakash.
I also know that this love
is his strength.
That's why he can survive.
If it was someone else he'd
been bed-ridden by now.
Sometimes I feel scared that
the remaining few months...
will end for Anand very soon.
When I leave him alone in
the mornings...
I feel worried whether I'll
see him alive in the evening.
Excuse me. A school teacher
named Renu lives here.
Can you tell me the
number of her house?
Renu... the one with
the long plaits...
and round vermilion
on her forehead...
The one with the dimpled smile?
- Yes.
Do you want to know
her house number.
First let us know your number.
- What?
First let us know
your number.
What do you mean?
Everyone has a
number here.
The first is of a tall guy
who doesn't live here...
but drops her home sometimes.
The second is mine and
the third is his.
We all have a number here.
If you want to woo her,
join the gang.
Now tell me the number
of her house.
Twenty five.
- Twenty five. Thank you.
What's your number?
- Number ten.
Let him come back.
We'll give him a number.
You're great. You recognized
me as soon as you saw me.
You're Renu's mother.
- Yes.
God bless you.
Excuse me, but I didn't
recognize you.
You don't know me but Renu does.
I've come for her.
She's going to be late today.
- That's why I've come so early.
Don't sit there.
- So what? You join me too.
I've an important work
with you.
What work?
What was earlier done by elders
is being fulfilled by a brother.
I don't understand.
I've got a proposal for Renu.
I want to make her my
What can I say?
Renu will decide about it.
Times have changed...
Girls no longer agree comely
to their parents and marry.
These days unless a boy
and girl meet each other...
I understand.
The girl and boy have
already met...
and I've seen them
looking at each other.
That's why I've come to you.
Raghu Kaka and I have
approved the girl.
If you want to meet the boy,
you can do so.
He's a doctor and when
I mean the girl suffered
from pneumonia he treated her.
Who Bhaskar?
- Yes, he's my brother.
ls it true?
I am so fortunate.
Bhaskar is a gem
of a person.
Renu keeps on praising him.
That's it. It's fixed then.
Sorry, mummy. I mean you
must have understood by now.
I do. If they have
agreed, it's good. But...
because you're his brother
I've have to tell you...
I don't have anything to give
to my daughter in marriage.
Why're you worried about it?
What do you think the groom can
give... aspirin or penicillin?
So the alliance is finalized.
Everything is ready.
Get me the horoscope.
We'll finalize the date in a week.
But we can't do anything
for three months.
Three months. Why?
Renu's father expired nine
months ago and so...
Then it's difficult. I won't
be able to attend the marriage.
Are you going somewhere?
Yes, I'll be leaving after
one and a half months.
Where are you going?
- Far away.
Can't you come back
for the wedding.
No, it's difficult and
there's a lot of rush.
We don't get a return
ticket from there.
But you can start preparing
for the wedding.
I'll be leaving now. l
have a lot of work to do.
Have some sweet.
- No, I don't want to.
I'll be back after two days and
you'll have treat me to lunch.
You will, won't you?
You got this proposal for
Renu, I'm so glad...
but at the same time
I feel frightened.
I have only one daughter.
How will I survive alone?
But now I feel my daughter's
a stranger...
and you're my son.
I hope God gives
you a long life.
Hey, you disrupted our
queue and went away.
Couldn't help it.
lt was an emergency.
We'll have to teach him a
lesson along with the tall one.
We'll cripple the girl.
Neither will she go out...
nor will anyone come here.
Did you understand?
- You seem to be sensible.
Hope you won't take the
trouble of coming back.
What are you saying? I'll have to.
There are strong vibrations.
So shall we be meeting again?
- Not only meeting but beating too.
What did he mean?
That means kicking.
- He's threatening us.
What's the problem?
- Hello.
What do you want?
- Dust. I want a little dust.
This is a wrestlers' arena;
you don't get dust here.
I want the dust of your feet.
You're the epitome of strength.
I want to be at your feet.
If you want to build your
body, discard your clothes.
You'll have to pay me my fees.
No, papaji, I don't want
to train under you...
I saw your strength and asked
for the dust of your feet.
Look at me; I'm so useless.
Neither can I save myself
nor my family.
What happened?
Who's troubling you?
There are a few men down
the street...
who trouble my sister-in-law
I mean, I can't come freely to
my would-be sister-in-law's house.
Jeetu, I'll be back soon.
Come, let's see who's
troubling you. I'll...
Yes, please come.
Papaji, there they are.
Let me go first. When they
come to hit me, you arrive.
Papa, please come soon or
they'll make a pulp out of me.
Are you scared of them?
Go now.
Shall I...
- Yes, go on.
Here he comes again.
Hey mister... whom have you
come to fight with...
With us, or your Juliet?
First let us rehearse...
you'll find it easier later.
Yes, let us.
You swine!
You tease his sister.
Go, run...
Wait. What's this called?
- A drain pipe pant.
What does it mean?
- lt means a dirty drain.
Next time I see you wearing it,
I'll throw you in the dirty drain.
Papaji, you're great.
You are truly like Bhaimsain.
- God bless you Ghatodkach.
God, let Anand get well.
I beg of you.
- What happened?
You're sitting here talking
to God and I'm looking for you.
Have these sweets.
- Sweets, what for?
Come here, sit down.
My Babumushai has been cured.
What happened to him?
- A dreadful disease.
Be thankful, I noticed the symptoms
and searched for the medicine.
But before I could find it, the
medicine found the patient.
I'm confused.
Who found whom?
Renu found Babumushai.
- Who Renu?
Babumushai's medicine.
You don't know, Suman.
Babumushai treated Renu...
and in the bargain fell
sick in Love.
How do you know?
- I got it from the horse's mouth.
You know him well and
yet you don't
I found out about it. You're
not bothered about anyone.
Don't pray for yourself.
Pray for others too.
But today I asked God
something especially for me.
What? What did you ask for?
Oh I know. Shall I buy toys?
I'm his uncle. What will
my nephew say?
What did you pray for?
My nephew or a niece?
Don't feel shy. Tell me
what did you ask for?
I prayed for my brother's life.
That rascal told you everything.
Look at me. You are my sister,
yet you're weeping.
You're so weak.
You pray to God everyday...
ls this the strength
that He has given you.
Are you weeping in the
fear that I'll leave you.
I'm alive today, aren't you
happy? Can't you smile?
Renu, come in.
Please be seated.
Where did you learn that?
From a body builder friend.
He's very strong.
Hey, Babumushai.
- I've come to meet you.
- Yes. Not your friend.
Speak softly or he'll be
green with envy.
Talk of the devil
and he appears.
When did you come?
No Babumushai, go back.
Wrong number.
She's come to meet me.
Tell him.
Yes, I've come to meet you.
Correct. He's jealous.
Muralilal. You talk to her.
I'll go meet Murarilal.
Who's this Murarilal
- Watch.
Hey, Murarilal how come
you're here?
What's this beard for
like king Shahjahan.
Didn't you recognize me?
We had beer at Qutub
Minar and we were drunk?
You're too much.
You left Delhi after
those two pegs.
They were not two but four.
You bet. They were two
pegs but large.
Come, let's go again.
I've stopped drinking.
How about you?
No, I didn't.
It's a habit now.
Babumushai, come here.
Are you married or
still single?
No, I'm not. The girl I approve,
my father disapproves
He says she's too young.
And the girl he approves l
disapprove because she's old.
Tell me about your girlfriend.
She was of medium height.
What happened, Anand?
Babumushai. didn't I tell you
I'd meet Murarilal someday?
I've found him.
Murarilal, this is Dr Bhaskar
I live with him.
Jaichand and I are
childhood friends.
He was always naughty.
His name is not
Jaichand but Anand.
My name is not Murarilal
but lssa bhai.
Issabhai Suratwala.
Remember me?
I hope your name is Bhaskar.
- Yes.
Teacher, where are you going?
I was looking for you.
You were splendid.
Let's have tea.
I can't. I have my
rehearsals today.
Yes, I own a drama company.
We hold shows.
Give me a role.
I can act a little too.
I've seen your acting
just now.
Let's go.
Babumushai, take care of her.
I'm going to the drama company.
Shall I leave?
- Did you really come to meet Anand?
Yes, I had planned to
meet him too.
You met him. What about me?
Sit with me for sometime.
Don't you have to
go to work?
It's a half hour job.
I'll do it anytime.
No, finish your work.
I'll wait for you here.
Hello, Panditji.
Please be seated.
Shall we rehearse?
Yes, we shall.
But the mood is
not created like this.
It's an Urdu drama;
wear your costumes.
Rajni, are you ready?
- Yes I am.
Very good. Play the tape.
Where's my turban?
Your Excellency.
I'm ashamed. lnspite
of being a prince...
You are in love
with an ordinary girl.
Father, if she's ordinary...
come a little further.
If you can tell me
someone better than her...
I can, but I can't give the
permission to go there...
I understand, father
I'm ashamed to have given
birth to a son like you.
It's every man's duty to
be ashamed of his errors.
Quiet, you fool.
I'll bury you alive.
You bet. You can bury me
but not keep me alive.
Why didn't you die the
day you were born?
Life and death is in the
hands of God your Excellency.
Neither can you change it
nor I.
We are just puppets
on a string...
and the strings are
pulled by Him.
When, who and how it
can be pulled one can never tell.
Splendid! You were great.
Fine, now let's have
a tea break.
How did you like it?
- Wonderful.
- What who? What did you mean?
I asked you about the
You're rehearsal was good
but the girl is pretty.
Which one?
- The one with the knife.
Oh Rajni.
- She must be your sister.
Shall I introduce you.
- Yes.
Rajni, come here for
a moment.
He's Anand, a good
actor from Delhi.
He wants to talk to you.
Which plays have you
performed in Delhi?
I'm dead. I don't
act, I only sing.
What are you saying?
Don't you speak Gujarati?
What can I talk to him.
You're right. You don't know Hindi
and he doesn't know Gujarati.
I have failed with
the language.
Yes, you have.
No, my mind is
without you... my
mind is insecure...
I don't remember when
I lost my heart to you...
I felt relieved when
you came back to me...
I don't enjoy life
without you...
No my mind is insecure
without you.
I can't live without you.
If you ever go anywhere
Let time stand still for me.
That time should remain
with me forever...
No, my mind is insecure
without you.
Raghu uncle, where's Renu?
- Upstairs.
You've come now. I've been
waiting for hours.
What can I do? A doctor's
profession is like this.
Does Anand like to record?
Yes. He loves to talk. When
he's tired, he starts the tape.
Where were you, Anand?
The entire day? I mean,
Renu was waiting for you.
What happened. Why're
you breathless?
Nothing Babumushai. I found
a girl for you...
and today I went in
search of a girl for myself.
Did you find anyone?
Yes, I did, but failed
in the language.
Why? What happened?
She was a Gujarati girl and
knows no other language.
Yet I haven't lost hopes. I've
bought four Gujarati books.
Won't I be able to learn
Gujarati within a year.
I know. If not now at
least the next life.
I'll carry a handycam
with me.
ln my next life, I'll fall
in love at the age of 10.
Are you going out?
- Yes, but you are not coming.
Did you hear? A timid guy
is scolding me.
No problem.
Anand, you've received
Trivedi's letter. Read it.
I won't leave even if Trivedi
or lndira Gandhi invites me.
There's no place like Bombay.
Punjab, Sind, Gujarat, Maratha,
Dravid, everyone settles here.
I have decided that I'll live
and die in Bombay.
Anand was breathless while
talking today.
These are his last signs.
ln Medical profession there's
a stage when no treatment helps...
And the doctor has to wait for
the patient's death.
No one can perceive this helpless
situation except a doctor.
Oh God!
Such frightening helplessness.
I won't let you go
so quietly, mummy.
What were you
murmuring silently?
I was praying to God.
What did you ask Him for?
I asked Jesus for your...
I'm dead. What have you done?
- Why, what happened?
Don't you know, I'm a
disciple of Lord Shiva...
and you prayed to Jesus. What
if they fight with each other?
You fool.
Mummy, you don't know...
Shivji is very short-tempered.
It's alright. God has
not seen my temper.
If they interfere...
I'll be born as your son
in my next life.
What's your opinion?
Good, you're here.
You'll be the witness.
I've made a contract
with mummy.
I'll be born to her
in my next life.
He's foolish. He just blabbers.
Aren't you my son now?
Why wait for the next birth?
Yes, it's true.
So he doesn't move around...
- Yes.
I've seen so many deaths but
I won't be able to bear this one.
We are trying our
level best.
What are we doing. Man has
reached the moon...
We have even accomplished
on outer space but...
what have we done to fight against
human diseases, pain and torment?
Nothing! Sometimes I feel
so helpless, Prakash.
Won't you go and see Anand?
Go and meet him once.
He won't survive for long.
No, Bhaskar, I don't have
the courage.
I'll be leaving now. l
have to go to the church.
You sit here and talk to him.
I'll come again.
It's not nice to make others cry?
- Why?
I wanted Mummy to laugh
and she cried.
I try to make everyone
laugh but they all cry.
You don't understand.
When there's too much joy...
tears flow from our eyes.
Your mummy didn't weep
because she was sad...
but because she was happy.
Where will she find a son like you?
And where will you find
a brother like me?
See what I've got for you.
Wait here. I'll go get it.
Anand you...
You are crazy...
Don't scold me in Bengali.
I'm not. I said you're crazy.
Why did you remove the
flower from my hair.
I'll preserve it in my poetry book.
- Why?
As a poetry reminds
us of yesteryears...
ln the same manner this
flower will be my poetry.
I told you you're crazy.
- I am and I'm crazy about you.
Sometimes I feel that if
I envelop you in my arms...
you will melt and become
one with me.
You'll remain in my arms forever.
When I breathe, I should
hear your breath within me...
and you'll call me by my
name Anand... Anand...
Who is she?
- Who?
This girl.
- She's my Bengali girlfriend.
You're smart. You asked your
brother to tell you everything...
and hid your own matters.
Who is she. What's her name?
What will you do by knowing it?
Where does she live?
- ln Delhi.
But where in Delhi?
- ln here husband's house.
Oh, so she's married.
- No she was not when we met.
He's a nice man, her husband.
He loves her very much.
She'll be happy.
If she'd married me,
she'd be dead.
Do you know we used to find very
little time to meet each other.
That's why I used to tape her
voice on the sly when we met.
And after she left I would hear
it all over again and again.
When did she get married?
Three months and seven
days ago.
When did you come from Delhi
- I...
Exactly three months
and seven days ago.
Forget it. Why go into
these details now?
Look, what I've got for you.
Did you like it?
Shall I tell you something.
Wear it when I'm
still alive.
Hey Babumushai, what are
you doing here all alone?
Oh! you're thinking of her.
Love is such. You fall in love
and love troubles you...
Anand, leave me alone
for sometime.
If I leave you alone now,
there'll be problems.
Let's go to the other room
and record your voice.
Anand, please go to your room.
- I will, but I'll take you along.
I told you I want to be alone.
- And I don't want you to be alone.
Anand, why are you after me?
Why do you expect me to do
all that you tell me to.
You laugh and expect me to
I'm sorry, Babumushai.
Anand don't feel hurt.
You know I...
Babumushai, how many times will you
remind me that my days are nearing...
My end is here.
Babumushai, no one
has faced death.
But I'm so unfortunate that everyday
and every moment, every second...
on your face...
in your eyes...
No, Babumushai, I can
face death...
but can't bear to see
your frightened face.
I'll go away.
I'll leave tomorrow.
No, Anand, you won't
go anywhere.
You don't have anyone...
If you ever die, you'll
die here in my arms.
That's the spirit.
Do you know my problem?
Our spirit of joy is always
dampened with melancholy...
and it poisons our cheerfulness.
Babumushai, I'm not going to
die today. And even if I die...
I won't leave you alone.
I'll always remain here.
Yes, Anand, I know you're
a part of me...
a part of my life.
But I'll miss one thing.
- What?
Your voice, this chatter.
- Then let's record this chatter.
But first we'll record your poem.
- Which one?
The one you had written
in your college days.
Oh death! ls a poem...
Death is a poem...
Yet I've promised this
poem that someday I'll meet...
When sleep overcomes even
the painful sinking nerves...
the yellow moon rises
slowly in the sky...
When the sun sets at twilight
and the night is on the horizon...
It's neither dark nor bright
nor night or day...
When our body no longer lives
and the soul starts breathing...
I've promised this poem
that someday I'll meet...
Now you say something.
- What?
Anything, but you'll
have to talk for my sake.
Yes, that's right.
Babumushai, life and death is
in the hands of God Excellency.
Neither can you change it
nor I.
We are just puppets on a stage.
Whose strings are pulled
by Him.
When, how and who will go
one can never tell...
Anand, sit down.
- Yes, Raghu uncle?
Can you lend me 50 rupees?
Yes, it's in the drawer upstairs.
I need four to five
days leave.
Leave? You're taking leave.
You know Anand's condition...
I'm taking it for him. I want
to go to my village.
There's a temple of a Goddess
who is very powerful.
I'll get her blessings
for him.
I've seen the dead
come back to life.
Go soon Raghu uncle.
There's very little time left.
I'll leave by the 11.00 clock
train and return after two days.
Don't worry, Munna,
Anand will be alright.
- Come, lssa bhai.
Please be seated.
- I don't have the time.
There are final rehearsals today.
I've a lot of work to do.
Please call Jaichand quickly.
He won't be able to come.
- You bet. He will surely come.
You just tell him that
Rajni Bahen...
that Rajni's rehearsals are there
and he'll come talking in Gujarati.
The problem is that...
Okay, Munna.
- You're leaving. Come back soon.
As soon as possible.
This medicine can cure poison, fever,
cholera, cancer or any other disease.
No, Raghu uncle. Any disease
can be cured but not cancer.
lt can be. Even that
can be cured.
You bet.
- Yes I will.
You'll lose. I've
never lost a bet.
My father was a famous
doctor too...
He always said that one
who gets this dreaded disease...
will surely die.
It's not a doctor's
Which medicine is this?
- It's called belief. I'll leave now.
I'm sure his cancer
will be cured.
But who's got cancer?
Anyone I know?
Yes. He's close to me.
- Anand.
That's why I said, he
can't come with you.
He's in his last stages.
I don't know when...
He knew... didn't he, doctor?
Even on his death bed, the student
taught the teacher about life.
Keep sorrows to yourself
and give joy to others.
Doctor, can I meet
him just once?
Yes. Please come.
- Gurudev.
You're taking an early exit.
Very smart.
You've taken the claps...
and left the empty chairs
for us.
What can I do? My dialogue
are all over...
or else I'd have challenged you.
You bet. But we'll meet
up there.
Set your Anand troupe and
your own drama.
I'll join you. If you need any
actress from here inform me...
I'll get her along.
I'll leave now.
I'll come again.
Here. I'll meet you here.
I won't let the curtain fall.
I hope Raghu uncle wins
the bet.
Thus these are a few pages
left in Anand's life...
like his last few days.
Renu was right. God needs
good people as much as we do.
No one can go against
His wishes.
Sometimes they say a prayer
creates miracles...
And at this moment I know
everyone must be doing just that.
But all of us know the climax.
And we are waiting in anxiety.
Anand, take oxygen...
you'll feel better.
Babumushai, open
all the windows.
Prakash, I'm going to
Dr Shastri...
I've heard that there's
a medicine in homeopathy...
that can create miracles
at times.
Don't be a fool. Don't you
realize nothing can be done.
How do you know nothing
will help?
Haven't miracles happened
- Anand, I'll come back soon.
Don't go anywhere, Babumushai.
Don't worry. I'll be
back soon.
Renu, I don't want to die.
Try and save me.
He's very weak. He won't
be able to bear my death.
Has Babumushai returned?
- He'll come soon.
Has Babumushai returned?
- Yes, Anand?
Start the tape quickly.
Death is a poem...
Yet I have promised this
poem that someday I'll meet...
when sleep overcomes even
the painful sinking nerves...
The yellow moon rises
slowly in the sky...
when the sun sets at twilight
and the night is on the horizon...
It's neither dark nor bright
not night or day...
Prakash, Dr Shastri...
No, I won't let you be
silent like this...
I've been listening to your
chatter for the last six months...
you've chewed my brains.
Talk to me now. Talk to me...
Life and death is in the
hands of God, Excellency...
Neither can you change it
nor I.
We are puppets on a stage
whose strings are pulled by Him.
When how and who will go
no one can predict...
Anand never dies.
Joy never dies.
