Hey Saamikannu, where are you
off to early in the morning?
I can't find my goats anywhere.
Some robbers have
taken off with them.
Don't make a noise;
didn't you hear me?
Hey Little Girl, is the car here yet?
Hey Saamikannu, you idiot,
what are you looking for?
My goats are all missing.
When she lost her husband,
she did not go to find him.
Why will she bother
to find your goat?
For God's sake, what are
you standing around for?
Go, go, look out for them..
Hey you silly fellow, come over here.
Don't ask them, ask me.
Come here. Your goats must be
Boiling on Ambiyar's Saambaar.
Keep quiet, you silly goats!
Stay together, all of you..
Oh my goodness!
Roja, the car has come.
Go on, go on, run along..
Hey Small Girl! Come here, help me.
He's handsome, isn't he?
Oh no, cigarette!
Very bad!
Fallen in love already, have you?
I can leave you behind.
I don't mind.
Come on, let's run.
Saamikannu Annachi, your goats
are crowding the road.
Have you any sense? They
have blocked the car..
..of the man who has
come to see my sister.
Go on, hurry up. Go on, get
them out of the way! Go on, quick!
Be careful. He looks a
very intelligent type.
Intelligent! My goats! Go on,
you buffoons! Go on, get them.
Go, go..
Come on, come on, everyone.
Hurry up, hurry up.
The bridegroom has arrived.
You've to come to see him.
Oh, the bridegroom has come.
Let's go and see him.
Listen everybody.
My sister Senbagam's husband to be..
..has come to see her.
Senbagam's groom is here.
Senbagam, hey Senbagam..
Where on earth have you been?
You said you were going to
the market to buy vegetables.
Where is Senbagam, Ma? - Do you
know how angry your father is?
I saw him. Can you
believe it? I actually saw him.
How does he look?
You be quiet. Mind your own business!
He looks very intelligent,
grandma. Must be very well educated.
I really do approve of him.
It's great if you also do approve.
Roja, you silly creature!
What are you so excited about?
Is it your wedding or your sister's?
I have no wish to marry.
But my sister Senbagam will.
..for answering my prayers.
Hold still, Senbagam.
Don't move an inch.
Make a wish. Hey,
can I make one for you?
May he fall in love with
you at the first glance!
In four days time we'll have
a beautiful wedding ceremony.
At that moment, I shall
cling to you and cry and cry.
Mom, we have come
here to see a bride.
Why is half the village following us?
Specially these old women! Do
you want me to select one of them?
Very funny. I want a village
girl for you. So enjoy yourself.
What's the matter? What are
you murmuring between yourselves?
City people are very private.
Well, my brother, what
do you do for a living?
I am a cryptologist.
I don't understand.
You mean you make bricks?
What do you not understand?
He's a photographer.
What am I saying? By the way,
son, how much do you earn?
..or is it five thousand?
Why don't you let us know?
Hey Periyasaamy, how
come you ask the groom..
..such a personal question.
Well, you look fine on
the outside, young man.
Nothing wrong from inside, I hope.
You have left all the
city girls and have come.. marry a village girl.
That's why we are asking. - Yes.
You there, keep quiet. He's
picked a girl from our village.
We should be grateful.
Please, don't misunderstand.
After all it's the
matter of our girl's future!
Should we not ask?
You are an educated man. You tell us.
Look, I have ten fingers on my hands.
That's not what I meant.
If you wish, I can
carry you to the house.
Oh no, no, son! No!
Come on, come on!
- Please no, no.
Come on, don't be embarrassed.
Come on.
Oh God! Put me down son,
this is very embarrassing, son.
Put me down.
Senbagam, don't be nervous.
If he asks you something..
..intelligent, give it right back.
Don't worry about anything.
I've made a deal with
all the gods and goddesses.
Roja, you wait here.
Why, Ma? Ma!
Senbagam, take her blessings.
Come sit.
..then the girl will remain mum!
And my son too will..
..not open his mouth. Let's
leave these two alone so that..
..they can decide whether
they like each other or not.
Sister, what kind of talk is that?
Yes, yes. How can we
leave the two of them alone?
Sister, it is not allowed.
We have allowed the boy
to see the bride's face..
..before the wedding.
Otherwise, it is never allowed.
Listen, they don't like all
these old fashioned village ways.
Yes sister, he's a big city man.
Wait a minute! She hasn't
really said anything wrong.
After all, it's the two of
them who have to live together.
So what's wrong with
them having a little chat?
Oh my God! Roja, did you hear that?
The two of them are
going to chat alone!
In the last five years,
I've prayed everyday to you.
The boy who has come
to see my sister..
..please let him say yes.
I'll offer you whatever you ask.
And just like I had promised,
I'll also light a lamp..
..with pure ghee for you.
Whatever happens..
..just let him approve of her.
My son, ask whatever you wish.
After marriage, you won't
get a chance to ask anything.
She speaks from experience.
After marriage..
..her poor husband
has become a slave.
And he keeps mum.
They really can talk, can't they?
So I have never come to a village.
But I had decided that
if I ever get married..
..I'll marry a girl from the village.
I seem to like this village.
The fields, the waterfalls..
..the soil, smell of the earth..
These old hags! I love it all.
What are these two talking?
I can't hear a thing!
Why do you want to hear their talk?
You don't interfere in
their private matter.
All your life, you've
meddled in other's affairs!
Speak something. I'd
like to hear your voice.
Say something. Say 'Sridevi'.
Or Kullangudi Karupaayi
Just say something.
This marriage.. This
marriage is not possible.
What? Come again.
Please, speak softly.
Please say no to this match.
Say you do not approve of me.
Hey Senbagam! Don't just keep
standing there like a statue.
Go on, and offer him a cup of coffee.
My uncle
Soundarapandi is there for me
I've made up my mind
to marry only him.
But his father and
mine are sworn enemies.
So my father won't
allow me to marry him.
If we cannot marry..
I'll put an end to my life.
Please don't agree
to this marriage
Wait a minute!
Then why did you send me all
those beautiful pictures..
..of yourself and
dragged me here from so far?
You should have told
your father about it first.
These city men are just
never satisfied with talks!
My husband is the same.
Go, call your father.
I'll tell him myself.
If he gets to know, he'll
throw me out of the house.
So what do you expect me to do?
If you just keep staring
at him without speaking..
..then this is bound to happen.
Sir, you approve of
our girl, don't you?
Don't feel shy. You
can say what you feel.
Oh, come on! How can you
not approve of our Senbagam?
He looks quite pleased.
It's showing on his face.
Rishi, you like her, don't you?
Shall I give the go ahead?
Say you like her, Say you like her,
Say you like her, Say you like her..
Say you like her, Say you like her,
Say you like her..
I like this Girl.
You've come from the city..
..studied in the best schools!
You came here to approve
of the older sister.
And now you say you like the younger
one! Do you have any integrity in you?
What is the use of education?
If this was someone else,
we'd have beaten him to a pulp!
Have you thought about poor Senbagam?
Who'll want to marry her now?
Who'll want her for a wife?
Please, do not shame us like this.
That's all I have to say to you.
I've always been warning you not
to let her go prancing around!
But do you ever listen?
Now look what has happened!
The silly girl has
ruined her sister's life!
What have I done?
Tell me, what were
you doing in that room?
Your mother had told
you not to go there!
Why are you scolding her? She's still
a child. What wrong has she done?
What? You don't think she
has done anything wrong?
She was standing
there like a temptress!
Now he wants to marry her only!
Please don't scold
me for nothing at all.
Do you know I've been praying
everyday for Senbagam to get married?
Marriage is a personal matter.
Forget what other people think.
If the boy likes Roja,
then let him marry her.
Grandma, I don't want to get married.
Shut your mouth! You've
done enough damage as it is!
She's not really that
young anymore, my son.
We don't get boys like this everyday.
If he has chosen our girl,
we should consider..
..ourselves fortunate.
Our Roja too has
grown up now, hasn't she?
She's got to marry someday.
I know that, mother. But
how can the younger sister..
..marry before the older one?
I do have someone in
mind for our Senbagam.
Ask your brother in law
Chengiah to come
..and finalise her
marriage with Soundarapandian
All the humiliations he has caused?
Have I no dignity whatsoever?
That's right. You're sworn enemies.
You have crossed
swords with the father.. now you expect your
children to do the same too.
Think about their future. They
too need a life of their own.
Stubbornness and pride
will lead you nowhere.
Please don't break their hearts.
Listen to me, my son. Listen
to your old mother of yours.
Go on. Let both
marriages take place together.
Rukkumani, Rukkumani,
what is the sound in vicinity?
My ears can't bear tenor
find out what makes the sound.
Rukkumani, Rukkumani,
what is the sound in vicinity?
My ears can't bear tenor
find out what makes the sound.
It is the sound of
kisses by married couples..
The sound of joy
from the intermittent cot crackles..
This sound won't
stop until the rooster cries.
Rukkumani, Rukkumani,
what is the sound in vicinity?
My ears can't bear tenor
find out what makes the sound.
The little girl
has a lot of desires..
Like an ant trapped in sugar.
Step by step
Move up to the cot..
The pearl beaded anklets
whine at sound of kissing..
The Jasmine flower blossoms..
Desire spreads the mat
But fear latched it.
Rukkumani, Rukkumani,
what is the sound in vicinity?
My ears can't bear tenor
find out what makes the sound.
When Spouse
catches the index finger
The point where
the finger touch tickles..
Was a concert at the Cupids palace..
The bangles of the fille,
composed music
Kisses are exchanged..
Life is in a crisis
Mind heats up.
This birth gets gratified
Rukkumani, Rukkumani,
what is the sound in vicinity?
My ears can't bear tenor
find out what makes the sound.
It is the sound of
kisses by married couples..
The sound of joy
from the intermittent cot crackles..
This sound won't
stop until the rooster cries.
We are obliged to you forever.
We shall never forget
what you have done for us.
This was God's will.
Where is Roja?
- She is inside the house.
No, she is not there.
- She is not?
Small desire
fluttering desire
Pearl like desire
stored up desire
Desire to kiss the moon.
Desire planet earth
to orbit around me
Small desire
fluttering desire
I do hope you'll enjoy
the dish I'm preparing.
Do you think this
much salt is enough?
No, that's too much.
Your grandmother
says you cook very well.
She says you can whip up a
banquet for Fifty people.. just thirty minutes! But
my Rishi is not a fussy eater.
..and that wretched computer!
And if it's not that, it's music.
He sits in the toilet
reading the newspaper and..
..figuring out the crossword. I've
told him a hundred times not to do it..
Don't pick on the food
while its still cooking!
God knows when he'll stop smoking!
I didn't.. I didn't do
it on purpose. I am sorry.
Are you angry? I said
I am sorry. Look at me.
You know I'm not
such a horrible person.
I'm quite a nice guy.
See me. Don't I look innocent?
I'm taking you to meet my chief,
Dr. Chandra Murthy.
We are doing computer
software for Indian Military
Coding and Decoding
many confidential matters
Security clearance is
required for those who work
..and for their family members also
I am taking you to my Chief
Do you understand me?
Wait here.
Come in.
All right. Next Saturday.
Is it very cold there?
No problem. I'll be there in Kashmir.
Two, three days are more than enough.
I'll handle the Crypto code
Okay? Thank you.
Hello, Rishi! Congratulations!
Sir, she is my wife
Why are you standing here?
You asked me to wait here.
Okay, come in.
Come, my girl. I'm Rishi's
chief but only in the office.
Name's Chandra Murthy.
I think he's very lucky..
...Finally got a
gullible girl for Rishi. Sit down.
I hope you have married him
out of your own free will.
What did you say your name was?
- Roja!
You keep quiet!
Do not interfere in this.
Which village are you from?
- Sir, it's a very small village.
My village is not small.
I'm from Sundarapandiapuram.
Tirunelveli district!
Girl from our place
That's why it is so charming
It's long time
since I heard chaste Tamil
His Tamil, is not good at all
Madras dialect
Isn't the Muthalamman
Temple situated in your place
Yes. I mean not in our village..
No, it is about
40 miles east of our place
We used to go
there for the flower festival
Is it in the month of Chithirai?
No, in the month of Thai.
For this we take basket
full of flowers in the cart
I have never seen
Sir, I've got her for
the security clearance.
I'm your chief. I know
why you have brought her.
He must be bossing you
around too! Am I right?
Does Mother and son
speak English at home?
Yes sir.
What else did he tell you?
He said, "Don't talk to
my chief. Just be quiet."
"If you open your mouth, then you'll
display your ignosense!" - Ignorance!
He is a book worm
Don't be afraid.
I'll take care.
Look, this girl is from our place
She is not afraid of
anyone or any thing! Understand?
Roja, do you know
how to prepare 'Paniyaram'?
Sir, what about the
security clearance?
No clearance is required
for a girl from our place
Do you know this
milky white Paniyaram?
Do you know how to prepare?
I can prepare it very well
I'm leaving for Kashmir
and will be back by Monday.
As soon as I'm back, I'll
come straight to your home.
You must serve me that
hot and steamy Paniyaram
What? She is not
assuring and inviting me
I won't be here next week.
I am going back to my place
It is just 4 days
since your arrival, what happened?
I want to see mom.
For 18 years,
you've been hanging on.. her apron strings!
Wasn't that enough?
I will go to my place.
My dear villager,
hereafter this is your place
This is your house
and I am your husband
No, this is not my house
I do not like this place
doesn't draw me
I must not be here
My sister is
supposed to be in this house
You have deceived my sister.
Is that the cause for your anger?
Is that why, you were
silent for all these days
Don't you have conscience?
Tell me frankly
Can you justify what you've done
- You can't find a girl
like my sister, -Let me speak
Even if you scout for
7 births all over the place
- You have rejected such a person
- I didn't say so
You talked to my sister and suddenly
and said you want to marry me
How badly
she would have been hurt?
How can I face my sister now?
- For rest of the life, I can't face her
- Listen to me
All of them damned me
that I have enticed you
Will you let me speak?
What is the use of
education, if there is no heart?
- It may be a game in city
- Will you listen?
- You rejected her
- You are not listening to me
- Is it a mock marriage?
- Listen to me
Won't you listen to me?
I did not reject her
but she rejected me
I don't like this marriage
Don't shout
Tell them
you don't want this marriage
No, you are lying
She can never
talk like that
Senbagam, don't
lean on wall like this
Give that coffee to him
Poor girl
she feels shy
My uncle
Soundarapandi is there for me
Long ago I have
decided him as my husband
There is a family feud
between mine & his dad
So they are looking
for a groom outside kinship
If I don't marry him
I will not be alive
Please don't agree
to this marriage
How can I believe this?
This is the fact
Believe it or leave it
I just spoke to Senbagam on the phone.
She's very happy in her new home.
She says I should
worship you like a God.
Without knowing the truth,
I got upset with you.
Forgive me
I swear, I am sorry
I'm not such a horrible person.
I'm quite nice, actually.
Don't I look innocent?
Hello.. Yeah.. When?
Which hospital?
Okay, I'll be there.
What happened?
Dr. Chandra Murthy has been admitted in
Trinity Hospital. I'm going to see him.
What happened, sir?
Don't be bothered by
all these gadgets!
This is a hi-tech plot
by the doctors to make money
Will you do something for me?
- Definitely, sir.
I was to leave for Kashmir on
a very important assignment.
I don't think I can make it now.
You'll have to go in my place.
What will I have to do?
In Baramullah, at
the Unit's South Post..
..all messages from
foreign nations are intercepted.
You'll have to
decipher coded messaged.
You think you can handle this?
It's better if you
go early so that the..
..intern there will
explain everything to you.
I think this is a very
good assignment for you.
Definitely, sir.
In the current circumstances,
I feel very awkward..
..sending you to Kashmir.
- Why sir? Kashmir is in India.
Why should we be afraid of
going anywhere in India?
Thank you. Thank you, Rishi.
All security arrangements..
You don't have to worry at all.
Okay sir, no problem.
Remember, White Milk Paniyaram!
Recover quickly and get discharged.
I will prepare it for you.
Rishi, you are the witness.
I've called your father.
He'll take you to your village.
Now you can happily
go to your mother..
..and come back when you
feel like it! Are you happy?
But what will I do in the village?
Please don't leave me here.
Take me with you, please.
I've already
apologized for my mistake.
Stop all this talk now
and get ready to go home.
Ma, come with me, please.
- Where?
Please come
- What's the matter?
What happened?
You'll know in a minute.
Ma, please tell him
not to leave me alone.
Ask him to take me with him.
Rishi, its not even a week since the
wedding! Don't leave her like this.
Ma, I know what I am doing.
Take her with you.
My bag is also packed and ready.
Why is there no one on the roads?
- Curfew.
What? - Curfew. No one
is allowed on the roads.
Why? - Security. There're too
many terrorists around here.
To keep them in control.
It's frightening.
Where we are going?

Roja! Roja!
Mansingh, have you seen my wife?
I'm not sure, sir.
Roja, Roja..
Have you seen my wife?
I'm not sure, sir.
O God of Kashmir! I
don't know your name..
..but my father says
that all Gods are one.
So I've come to you. You
know my plight, don't you?
You're the almighty.
You know everything.
Before leaving my village, I
fought a lot with my God..
..and I told him I'll
never worship him again..
..because he made
me marry such a man.
I even told him that I
wouldn't even look in his direction!
But now I realize what a
good husband he's given me.
Thanks to him. O God of Kashmir..
..Please send this
message to my God..
..and please accept this coconut.
You'll speak to him, right?
You won't forget, will you?
Oh Lord, this is
going to be a problem.
You can't even break
a coconut in Kashmir.
Who is it? Is it the God
of Kashmir speaking? - Yes.
That too in Tamil
I speak all languages. Tamil,
Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada..
..Hindi, Urdu,
English, German, French..
..Greek, Arabian, Persian. I will speak in every language.. I can tell you your past..
..your present. I can
even tell your future.
Are you a Tamil??
- Yes.
I am Achu Maharaj from Polachi.
Here I am a Tourist Guide,
Astrologer, Ayurveda...
...Allopathy, Homeopathy,
Seethapathy, Ganapathy and Lakshmipathy
..All in one, one in all!
Come, come, show me your hand..
..and I'll tell you your future.
Earlier, a lot of
tourists used to come here..
..but now, we get only terrorists.
By the way, are you a
tourist or a terrorist?
Oh no! We have some important work.
What is so important that
you have come to Kashmir.. such troubled
times with your husband?
Something big! Cryptology,
something like that. I don't know.
Is there something like
that too? Listen, Roja..
Rail ticket, bus ticket,
platform ticket, I've got it all.
I can't take all these gun
shots and explosions any more.
As you can see, my
lifeline is already small.
Now if you want to
know your future, then..'ll have to come
to Polachi to meet me.
That's him.
Oh, your husband!
Let him go!
Leave him!
Please stop!
Rascal, do you think the police
station is your father's house?
Please listen to me, they
took him away! My husband..
Don't know where
these people come from.
Ten twelve people came,
abducted my husband.. front of my eyes! Listen to me!
I'm speaking over the phone.
You go there.
Tell me, what is the matter?
Some people, they took
away my husband in a car.
At gun point. Please help me.
What is going on there?
Don't know, sir. She is
telling something in Tamil.
What happened now? Calm down,
please calm down.
They were wearing masks..
Was it a robbery?
No, my husband! My husband!
Someone bring water for her.
Bring some water soon.
Please help me. They dragged
my husband. Took him away.
Calm down, calm down! I can't
understand what you're saying!
Sit down.
I don't want to sit. Right
in the middle of the road..
..they dragged my husband in
a car and just drove away.
And you want me to
sit down? How can I?
Wearing masks, with
guns in their hands..
..they just took him away.
They dragged him away ruthlessly..
..and you are not helping me at all!
Five ten people..
- Okay.
Took him away..
- Abduction?
But when?
Today morning.
Where? -Temple.
..was today abducted
by Kashmiri terrorists.
This incident took place
near the famous Gulmarg temple..
..early in the morning a few
kilometres away from Srinagar.
Senbagam, Senbagam, come quickly.
Mr. Rishi Kumar who works
for the central government's..
..telecommunications department,
had gone.. assist in the Indian
Army's Intelligence Division.
After his abduction, the Indian
army, Border Security Forces.. well as the Jammu
and Kashmir police..
..have come together
to search for him.
All government
departments have been put..
..on high alert in
search of Mr. Rishi Kumar.
Brother, I..
Don't hit that girl!
- Why did you untie him?
How dare you raise
your hand on a woman?
These are never to be taken off!
- A big coward!
Shut your mouth!
We are not here to
give you any trouble.
So don't be afraid.
But if you act smart..
..we will have to kill you.
It's not a big deal for us. To kill.
I am not afraid of death.
- Javed.
What do you want?
What is it that you want?
Independence! Freedom!
Whose freedom?
Our freedom! Freedom for
the nation that's Kashmir.
Freedom for all the
citizens of Kashmir!
Everyone's freedom!
His freedom, his freedom!
My freedom! Freedom for every
little wailing child that's born.. this land! Every plant,
animal, living being that breathes!
Freedom for all of them!
Freedom from your slavery!
Hello, ma, ma.. It's me, Roja.
Hello, Roja. Roja,
any news of Rishi yet?
Nothing at all. Hello, I
have no clue where he is..
..and in what condition.
Hello, hello, Roja,
how did all this happen?
Some armed men
sprang out of nowhere..
..and just pushed him in their
car in front of my eyes, ma.
I couldn't do anything.
Roja, Roja, don't worry my girl.
It's all my fault.
It's nothing else, ma.
All because he married me.
Now, don't you be stupid.
I'm coming there.. the first flight I get.
No, ma, don't worry.
I'll handle this on my own.
Please pray at all the temples
and speak to Dr. Chandra Murthy.
I've already spoken to him.
He said there's an important.. alert to all
officials and that they will..
..soon come to an understanding.
Paper, paper.. Today's paper..
Sir, today's paper.
Paper! Paper!
- Ma, I'll call you later. Bye.
Here's the money.
- Paper, paper, paper, paper..
You'll live another
thirty years and..
..after thirty years,
you'll inherit a huge fortune.
But now, give me my money. I
can't wait for thirty years.
Here, take this.
What a lifeline! You'll
have a long, long life, I say.
Oh my God! Oh my God!
What happened? Where are you going?
My lifeline's at stake! Let me go.
This is not fair.
- She must not see me.
I've to go. Let me go.
Why are you running away from me?
No, no, it's not
what you think, Roja.
It's in Hindi and I
can't read a thing!
Is everything okay?
Read it to me, Achu.
There's nothing in it, really.
He's standing there with armed men..
..and there so much
written and..
..he says "Nothing"!
Please read it, Achu!
Wasim Khan is in prison. If in
three days they release him..
..then they'll allow
your husband to go.
What else is written
about his release?
If he is not released..
- Then what?
Please read it for my sake, Achu!
If he is not released,
then a day later..
..your husband's fingers
will arrive in a parcel.
And within a week, his entire
body will be received in bits!
That's what these
bastards are saying!
That's what they are saying.
Wait, Roja! Roja,
where are you going?
Listen to me. I'm also
coming with you. Wait.
Look madam, if you come
here repeatedly, then..
Take a look at this! Read the paper!
It's full of threats!
Now what do you plan to do?
Sir, it's about this article.
Can you tell us anything more?
See, this case is not
in our hands any more.
The army has taken over.
We can't do anything.
Now they will do whatever is
to be done. Go to the army.
I don't know anything about the army!
There are so many
uniformed men over here!
Just send some soldiers
and ask them to look for him!
Can't you do that much?
Please explain to her, we can't do
anything now. Whatever is to be done..
..will be done by Colonel Rayappa.
All right, sir.
Why are you agreeing with him?
Those people have
given us only three days!
I want to know what they
are going to do about it!
Roja, there's nothing he can do now.
We'll have to go
meet Colonel Rayappa.
Until he comes here, I'm
not going to move from here!
Roja.. Roja, now don't be stubborn.
You heard me. No
matter how long it takes..
..I will not move till I
get some more information!
Come, sit.
Join us for a meal.
I.. I hope you like it.
How do you know Tamil?
What is he saying, brother?
I studied in Coimbatore.
Agriculture College.
4 Years.
Eat peacefully. Don't be scared.
When your government..
..releases Wasim Khan,
we shall release you.
Explain it to him.
This is a simple negotiation. As
soon as the Indian government..
..releases Wasim Khan,
you'll be allowed.. leave this place intact.
That's what they are saying.
Did you understand? Eat now.
Who's this Wasim Khan? How
many people has he killed?
I don't agree! They should not
release that killer for my sake.
What did he say?
Who asked for your permission?
Eat now.
I prefer to die.. Than let
you use me as a scapegoat.. release Wasim Khan!
Full of pride, aren't you?
No! Patriotism!
Colonel sir, this is
Rishi Kumar's wife.
I know who she is.
It's been three days since
they took my husband away!
I have no clue where and
what condition he is in!
You're a man from the military,
a big officer!
Yet after so many days,
you haven't been able.. get my husband back to me!
He has come here under your care!
All the forces had taken
responsibility for his security.
But now that they have taken
him away, nobody is ready.. go and look for him also!
Please tell me..
..when will you
release that Wasim Khan and..
Do you know who this Wasim Khan is?
I don't care about him!
Just get my husband back!
He's killed 50 people! If we let
him go now, he'll kill another 50!
You don't care, do you?
I want my husband back.
Today if we release him,
tomorrow, they'll..
..kidnap someone else
and demand the release..
..of other terrorists!
This place will be..
Who cares about this lousy place?
I just want my husband!
- Shut up!
Who are you? Are you not an Indian?
Is this not your motherland?
Have you not grown up on this land?
Don't you love this land?
You're concerned about yourself!
Let this country go to ruins!
These terrorist forces get together
to reduce the nation to ashes..
..and you don't give a damn!
You think of your home..
Do you know how many soldiers
there are in these barracks?
5000! .. 5000!
Be it rain, fog, snow, they
remain at their positions..
..never knowing when a
bullet will strike them!
Miles away from their homes,
on the border.. Relentless!
If they too begin to think like you,
then there won't be any country left!
Are you aware what's
going around? War! place my husband,
would you say..
Just being a minister's son
makes his life more valuable..
..and my husband's
life less valuable?
The government has put my
husband's life in your hands.
If anything happens to him,
you'll be responsible!
Until you get him back,
I won't leave Kashmir.
And I won't leave you!
Hey, sweetheart!
Hey, you're back!
I got something for you.
What is it? What's it?
What's it? What's it?
Close your eyes. I'll tell you.
Close your eyes.
Hey, come here.
Give me my clothes. Quickly.
Okay, okay.
Make it fast or your
sweetheart will freeze to death.
Not this. My clothes.
That's all you'll get,
sweetheart. Come out fast.
Give me my clothes.
Why don't you stand straight?
I'm feeling shy.
Mine, right ? Then give it to me.
- What?
Take it off. Give it to me!
- No! - Come here, come here.
No, I can't give it to you.
- Hey, listen.
I won't give it to you.
Come here, give it
to me! Take it off!
It depends on what you say.
I love you!
Your government needs
more time to decide..
..for the release of Wasim Khan.
We have to give
proof of your well-being.
So record your voice.
Come on, speak into this.
If Wasim Khan is not released,
then you too..
..will not return alive. Speak!
Jai Hind!
Jai Hind!
Jai Hind!
Jai Hind!
Oh my love Roja
where are you?
Tears are rolling down, dear.
Oh my love Roja
where are you?
Tears are rolling down, dear.
You are there in eyes,
You are there in tears..
When eyes are closed,
You are in my heart too..
Tell, what happened?
Oh my love Roja
where are you?
Tears are rolling down, dear.
The touch of breeze
reminds me your saree.
Seeing tender flowers
reminds me your body.
The silver stream speech
reminds me of your words.
When two clouds merge
reminds me our cuddle.
No words when there is mouth.
No life when you are not with me.
Does Kisses have thorns?
Oh my love Roja
where are you?
Tears are rolling down, dear.
You are there in eyes,
You are there in tears..
When eyes are closed,
You are in my heart too..
Tell, what happened?
Oh blowing breeze
Stop you have no job.
Oh whispering moonlight
Go away, no feminine here.
Oh garden with flowers
Wither it all no more lovely hair.
Oh sky vanish
and fade away to a spot.
No dames are necessary now.
What is service
after once life has gone.
Does Kisses have thorns?
Oh my love Roja
where are you?
Tears are rolling down, dear.
You are there in eyes,
You are there in tears..
When eyes are closed,
You are in my heart too..
Tell, what happened?
Take me to meet Wasim Khan.
Who? That criminal? That
killer who is in jail?
I'll plead with him instead
of those government officials.
Oh God! Leave me in peace,
will you? I can't do this.
I have no wish to meet Wasim Khan.
Nor do I wish to live in Kashmir.
Whether you come with me
or not, I'll meet him.
Don't be crazy. It's not a
good idea. He's a killer.
He'll kidnap you too.
Do you want that?
Will you take me or not?
Never. I wish to remain alive.
Leave me alone! For God's sake
Do we really have to do this?
Greetings! Salutations! How is
everything? Long life in jail!
Ask him to release my husband.
Sir, please sir.
Sir, her husband is with
your men. He's innocent.
Please let him go, sir.
Get out of here.
It's just been a
month since our marriage.
Look at this marital necklace.
He's a good man.
Is it fair to kill an
innocent man, you tell me.
You are an Indian and I
don't give a damn. Get out.
You heard what he said,
Roja. Let's go.
No, I won't leave. I
want my husband back.
Your fight is with the government.
What's my husband
got to do with this?
What fault is it of his, tell me?
This is jihad. The struggle
for Kashmir's independence.
You're a murderer. You've
mercilessly killed innocent women..
..and children and that's
why you are behind bars.
Then why did your men
kidnap him? Just tell me why.
Why are you after his life?
If you don't like India,
then why don't you just leave?
Why are you sacrificing my
husband for your selfish means?
This is our goal. Our
mission and we'll do anything.. achieve it.
You call yourself a man?
To get out of here..'ll use my husband?
How many lives will it
take to quench your thirst?
Lady, that's enough.
Let go. I want my husband.
If you try to escape again,
I swear I'll kill you.
Go there.
Usman, take a look here.
Go back.
How many people have you killed?
For our freedom. Our leaders
have chosen this path for us.
Who are these leaders?
From our country or
from across the border?
So you'll kill
anyone they ask you to?
He's your brother. If
they ask, you'll kill him?
Your sister?
- Yes.
Your mother?
- Yes.
- Jihad.
What's that?
You won't understand.
Against whom?
Against India.
You think you can win
this war with these guns?
Can you achieve your goals
by this merciless bloodshed?
..out of their homeland?
How and where will they..
..fend for themselves? Is
this not their homeland?
How will innocent kids
survive without food and shelter?
Think about it. You just
keep throwing parents..
..and children on the
streets and take over their homes.
You are.. you are all misguided.
Slaves to their orders.
Scrambling around with guns..
..puppets in the hands of
the neighbouring country.
Can't you use your own mind?
Allah has gifted you this life.
Why are you wasting it? Why?
We don't care about our life.
We just want Kashmir.
..and as I said, guns
won't take you anywhere.
Why don't you try and
negotiate with talks?
Talks don't help.
Partition will solve this.
Dear Senbagam, hope all is
well at least in your life..
I think I must have committed.. a great
sin. Otherwise why would all this..
..have happened with me?
I can't take it any more.
Everyday I meet these officers
in the hope that they have..
..some news of him. I'm
living everyday in the hope..
..that they will find him soon.
Nobody has a clue..
..of his whereabouts. I fear to
think in what condition he's in.
We are looking for him
everywhere and doing everything.. the extent of showing
his photograph to people.. the hope that
someone may recognise him.
How is Roja?
Is her groom back yet?
Who has taken our
dear son-in-law away?
If we were there,
within minutes we would have.. him back from those scoundrels.
Child, is there any
news of Roja's husband?
What kind of a man are you?
Someone has taken
her son-in-law away and.. are sitting at home and eating
your meals comfortably like a cow?
Go and do something.
Militant leader Wasim
Khan will not be released..
A highly ranked central
government committee..
..came to this conclusion today.
This decision was taken in
wake of recurrent demands.. terrorists to get
their leader out of jail..
Liyaquat, kill this bastard. Kill.
His government has
refused to release Wasim Khan.

Our India is one and one only.
Our India is Common.
It was created of People's sweat
It was created
with diversity as manure..
So is strong as a subcontinent..
Oh human! To win.
Separation not in this land.
Rise up!
Who? Who is that?
- It's me, Achu.
What is it?
- Roja,..
..the colonel wants
you to come immediately.
What? What's happened?
Nothing's happened Roja. Just come.
What are you trying to say?
Come along, please.
Yeah, you take the charge.
You go that side.
You come here!
Yeah, go there and control the crowd.
Yeah, you come here.
Don't let anybody in.
Why have you brought me here?
Someone has been shot several times.
Can't even make out his face.
That's why I've brought you here.
Take.. take a look at him and see.
Please, it's not him. It's not him.
Go on.
It's not him. I won't go there.
I can't go there.
Come on, don't worry.
It's not him. I'm
telling you it's not him.
Achu I'm telling you..'s not him.
I know.
- I'm sorry, but we have to do this.
I know it's not him.
- Come on.
No. It's not him.
It's not him. It's not him.
It's not him. It's not him.
Nothing can happen to him.
Nothing can happen to him.
We shall have..
- A free Kashmir!
We shall have..
- A free Kashmir!
We shall have..
- A free Kashmir!
They are going across
the border for training.
Sir, sir, this is Mrs..
Mrs. Rishi Kumar.
Wife of the
engineer who is kidnapped.
She just wants to meet
the minister for a minute.
He can't meet anyone. Just
give me a written petition..
..and I'll forward it to him.
Can you please take me to him?
Excuse me, sir. She
is Mrs. Rishi Kumar..
..the engineer's wife. She
wants to talk to you for a minute.
We're doing our best.
You called me your daughter.
You do know..
..that my husband's life is
in danger. Please save him.
Please save him.
- Sir, that's not possible.
Sir, I come from a
small village in India.
Maybe that's the reason why
I can't understand politics.
They keep showing me
these dead bodies and..
..ask me if it's my husband's body.
I can't take it anymore.
They say we are talking..
..with the terrorists
and it will take some time.
How can I live with this uncertainty?
If something happens to him then?
They say he'll be back today,
definitely tomorrow.
It's killing me. - Sorry sir,
I think we should leave sir.
It's been so many
days since he's gone.
We may not be important people, but..
..we are citizens of India.
Is our safety not important?
My child, there is not much I can do.
You can do everything, sir.
You have to save my husband.
You are a godsend for me sir.
Please don't disappoint me, sir.
Please save my husband.
It's a request.
Last evening while
crossing the Indian border..
..fifteen young armed Kashmiri
nationals were gunned down.. the Pakistani army. This
betrayal has created bitterness..
..among the Kashmiri
people and has also questioned..
..Pakistan's double standards
in regard to the Kashmir state.
Due to this, there is a
lot of tension in Kashmir.
..and there is a
possibility of a curfew.
I am sorry.
Your brother was innocent.
He was a good boy.
He should not have died like this.
They told us to keep
spreading terror and leave..
..It wasn't just my brother.
There were 13 others.
All innocent kids.
What crime did they commit?
They had so much more to live for.
We have been betrayed.
All these killings,..
..this terror, this
bloodshed for what?
If you realize terrorism is a
mistake, why don't you stop it?
We can't stop now. We
are in the midst of a storm.
No matter what the obstacles are,..
We do not have a choice anymore.
This holy war must go on.
Liyaquat, you are a
stanch Muslim. Then be honest.
Is all this terrorism, killing,
..acceptable to your Allah?
Does your religion say that.. man should kill another?
Why don't you leave your guns?
Instead of making people cry,
wipe the tears off their faces.
Wasim Khan is about to be released.
The government has
taken this decision.
Your husband will be
with you very soon. length and now
you will get your due.
The man we had captured
with great difficulty..
..will be released soon. Happy?
You'll get your
husband; even you are happy.
By releasing a big scientist,
the minister is getting..
..a good name in the government.
He too is happy.
15 soldiers, who
must be husbands too..
..sacrificed their
lives catching this man.
Died for nothing !
I am very happy.
All will be happy.
God bless you!
Good night.
He's coming back.
I told you.
My predictions came
right for the first time.
By the grace of Allah, Wasim
Khan will be released soon.
At last your government
has shown some mercy on you.
They have decided to
release Wasim Khan.
Back to the jeep. Take
him back and lock him up.
No matter what you do;
we'll be free one day.
You can't do anything to
prevent it. This is our Kashmir.
Why did they do this?
Where is he?
Why didn't they bring him along?
I thought I'd get your
husband back to you.
Don't talk like that. He's all right
Have you seen anything yet?
They are just bloodstained clothes.
He's all right.
I know that.
My heart says that he is alive..
..That he's all right.
I won't give up. Wherever
he is, I'll search for him.
I'll go to these terrorists' homes.
I'll plead with them.
If needed I'll fight them.
Wait a minute.
I'll come with you.
Until you get your husband..
..I'll be with you.
Don't leave him. Let him not escape.
I'm coming from the
other side. Don't let him go.
Hello, Alpha Bravo,
Alpha Bravo, Tiger here.
Call the 62132 and meet me
at 5 o'clock. Over and out.
Liyaquat,.. what will you do?
You can't kill me.
When your brother died,
I saw your pain.
You're not a terrorist at heart.
You're a good man.
With a clean conscience.
You can't kill me.
I'm leaving.
Do whatever you want.
This terrorist will wipe tears now.
