Shimla Mirchi (2020) Movie Script

Avi, I need to ask you something.
Please dont say, "no."
What if I say "yes" before you ask?
Then, I will always be grateful to you.
Why are you being so formal?
Its me.
Actually, I...
I dont know how to say this.
I mean my...
-You as well?
Its easy.
You can say it.
You can do it.
My mom is in love with you.
Come on.
What are you guys doing?
Were enjoying ourselves.
You've come to Shimla after two years.
What do you know?
Just wait and watch,
Soon, hell stop coming
to Shimla for good.
I disagree, Kannu.
Next year, he'll be here with a girl!
His girlfriend.
Or Mrs. Avinash.
Right, Avi?
Dont worry, Grandma.
Everything will be normal
once he gets married.
You've poisoned the child's mind as well.
Have I ever complained about coming here?
I am bored of coming to
the same hill station, all my life.
-But do I ever complain?
You haven't complained yet.
But I don't trust you.
Youre very unpredictable.
No, Auntie, never.
Ill never complain.
Ill just leave quietly, if I'm bored.
Were here just for a week.
Leave quietly!
I know, Mom.
And Ill seriously try to
stay for a couple of days.
Uncle, stop making excuses.
Its such a beautiful place.
Youre not leaving.
You find it beautiful,
just because this is your second trip.
This is my twenty-second trip.
But, if I still find something attractive...
I promise I won't leave.
Couldnt you guys relax?
You could've attacked the market later.
Not everyone comes here to sleep.
Talking to you guys is a waste of time.
My love!
-Hows it going?
Come on don't be shy!
-How have you been?
-I'm good.
-And you?
-I have a new book for you.
-Which one?
-Do you want to see?
-Of course.
100 ways to woo a girl.
-Any luck?
-Not yet.
Whenever I try to convey
my feelings to a girl...
I get totally dumbstruck.
I was trying to say...
I was saying that...
So, you couldn't ask a girl out.
What's the big deal?
Theres always arranged marriage.
You won't have to talk there.
The family takes care of everything.
You dont need to worry.
The day I find true love...
Ill ask her out in grand style.
Wait. Wait.
Whats taking them so long?
What are they doing?
Grandma! Auntie!
Lets go.
-Come on.
-Where are you taking us?
Wait. Wait.
I came over to borrow a hammer,
not to be a part of
your silly photo shoot.
Cover your head.
Cover it.
And give me a good pose.
Something like this.
Thats more like it.
What a beautiful girl.
Yes, Sonu. Shes very beautiful.
But shes a little too pretty for our Avi.
Your shop is doing well.
Maybe you should think
about my caf as well.
Don't be jealous!
Youre not the sole owner of that caf.
Ive invested in it as well.
Talking to you is a waste of time.
Go ahead, click.
You didnt wear
the head ornament.
Head ornament?
Look, I dont have time
for that.
-This is your last and final pose.
Sangeeta, get the head ornament
I wish Avi was good enough to ask her out.
She would become our
Hold on, sister.
Shes not a piece of mango
which you can pick and take home.
Wait, let me talk to her.
Just two minutes.
Just a minute.
Hi, dear.
Are you... married?
No... I'm not.
And I don't intend to.
Just one minute!
This Vikas is good for nothing.
Yeah, Captain Uncle.
-The false ceiling fell down!
The false ceiling fell down?
Yes... the false ceiling.
Stay there, I am coming over.
I will show that bloody...
-Naina, my photo-shoot.
-My child!
Mishti will love this!
Mishti, where are you going?
I want to sit with Auntie.
Did you pack the walnuts?
I had fun this time.
Mishti, say goodbye to Riz Road.
-What's wrong, Avi?
You know what, you guys go on.
Im going to stay.
Dont translate it.
Tell us what's wrong.
Why do you want to stay back?
I just dont want to leave yet.
Whats wrong, Avi?
Nothing, Mom, I just...
Do you guys get
why Avi wants to stay back?
Of course, son.
You can stay as long as you want.
May God give you the strength
to propose the girl this time.
But who is she?
I dont know.
No, theres no one.
Your uncle used to say...
Mishti, cover your ears.
Yes, Auntie.
Ill try my best.
Heres your luggage.
And this time come back only
after you have wooed her.
I admit it's a big order...
but, we dont deliver food.
Were short-staffed.
What can I do if youre all alone at home?
I cant come over.
I said I cannot come over.
Im a changed man now, madam.
Captain Uncle, Im going to
crush that contractor Vikas today--
Candidates for the interview are here.
He's been working for six months and
the place is already falling apart and--
What are you doing?
Are you blind?
What are you doing, Naina?
You know what, why dont you
break a few more.
Hey! Hey!
Hey... what are you doing, Naina?
What are you doing?
We need to hire people
who are willing to stay and work.
If you keep behaving like this...
who would want to stay here?
Ill get on with the interviews.
Send them in one by one.
Guy number one... come in.
Keep your file.
Tell me about your education.
Youll have to do everything here.
Ill even make you clean
the bathroom.
Ill pay you 5,000 rupees.
Please leave.
Why do you show up for the interview
if you dont want to work?
Come, please.
Who's next?
...for all the chores.
You're cooking almost after a year.
Well, the weathers quite
special today.
This 24 karat smile is the most special.
Just like you started cooking...
you should resume your
dance practice as well.
I will.
Kidney beans.
You know what...
Lets sign the divorce papers as well.
Lets start with a clean slate.
Should I call Tilak and tell him...
that youre signing the
divorce papers.
Why do you call him "Tilak"?
Call him Papa.
Mom... hes no longer my papa.
And hes never coming back here either.
So, I am telling him that youre
signing the divorce papers.
Do call him...
and wish him a happy birthday.
In fact, pay him a visit as well.
So, all this is for Tilaks birthday.
You've made desserts as well.
Then we dont need this.
What are you doing?
Dont do it.
I've spent the entire day cooking.
Give me that!
Please, dont throw the food away.
-Give it!
-Leave it.
Give me the sweets.
Give me the sweets, Mom.
He doesnt want to divorce me.
He dumped you a long time ago.
And youre still holding on to him.
-Give me the sweets, Mom.
For the past one & half year, hes been
living a few miles away
with a girl half his age.
He does this sometimes.
But eventually comes back to me.
You just wait and watch,
he'll come back.
Ones crying after cooking the food.
And the other ones crying after
throwing it away.
And what for?
My good for nothing son, Tilak.
This is way too much drama.
What are you looking at?
Want some?
Go ahead.
Its really tasty.
Its called National caf.
The board will change soon.
And youre going to be
her employee...
as long as the caf
doesnt open?
It will open soon.
Everyone in Shimla knows...
she keeps announcing every month
that her cafs opening shortly.
Do you know how much
she has delayed it?
In fact, she had to setup few
coffee tables outside,
just to meet her expenses.
Fine. Everyone goes through a
bad phase in their life.
So what?
But soon, everyone in Shimla will know...
that Ive joined the caf now.
Ive planned everything, Jude.
When the times right...
I will finally say what I never could.
I couldnt have imagined
a bigger surprise!
My daughter personally
coming over to wish me.
Not just to wish you,
I also brought sweets.
-Mom made it.
-Its a little too sweet.
A bitter man like you...
needs an extra dose
of sweetness.
Take this.
Why do you blame me for everything?
Because youre adding years
to your life...
by celebrating your birthdays.
But your wifes losing
on hers waiting for you.
Look dear, youre still
very young...
and you havent fallen in love yet.
One day you will understand
my situation.
Mr. Sensible man...
why dont you talk some
sense into my mother as well?
I already sent her the divorce papers.
It's not my fault that she
isnt signing them.
Why marry a woman...
who cant divorce you?
A man getting divorced, and remarrying
is not that big a deal anymore.
Then you should know that...
I will ensure that a woman
getting divorced and remarrying
will not be that big a deal
here in Shimla.
for bringing me to the temple.
Thank you for what, Mom?
Youre feeling good, right?
Mom, lets do something that
will make you feel better.
-Come on.
Just stay quiet.
-Hello, priest.
-Bless you, child.
Now that were here...
I am sure well be blessed.
Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
Can you read my sister's palms?
Have a look, please.
Have a look, please.
What does it say?
Dont worry, dear.
It did take some time...
but her prince charming
is on his way.
Your sisters blushing.
Anyway, thank you, priest.
Youre very naughty.
If this is bad, then so be it.
I see...
Be happy.
Enjoy your life.
Look at yourself.
Why? Whats wrong with me?
Mom, do you need me to tell you
how beautiful you are?
How talented you are?
And how graceful you are?
Are you going to waste all this?
And for what?
For that Tilak?
I understand, dear.
Change is an important part of life.
And I am trying my best.
Dont try, Mom,
just do it.
Say it out loud...
Rukminis going to live
life on her own terms
going to live life on her own terms
She's doesn't give a
damn about this world.
She's doesn't give a
damn about this world.
All Rukmini wants is...
The picture on the back,
thats my husband.
But he's with someone else.
What can he do if some girl
forces herself onto him?
Let me take a look.
Just a minute.
Why dont you buy a copy
for yourself?
I just want to take a look.
But I--
Let me see.
Its my husbands picture.
Let go.
Youre such a strange man.
Look what youve done.
Wait, wait.
Give that back.
And use this cheaper one.
Im going to use this at
the Marina.
Hey, Mr. Vikas contractor.
Are you going to think about your
own progress in every contract...
or, will you let others live
peacefully as well?
Captain sir, I've already had
enough of Naina's blabbering.
Please spare me the lecture.
I am designing this place.
I'm not digging a pit.
I think youre trying to complete your
incomplete designing course in our caf!
You know...
that I am trying my best
to finish the job.
Naina shouldve never dreamed so big
if she didnt have money.
Why should I suffer?
Bloody contractor...
this light will go up here.
-Naina, this bloody--
-Why are you scolding the poor guy?
Let's resolve this issue calmly.
Have you lost your mind?
Those are expensive!
Who's gonna pay for that?
How would I know?
-All I know, is that I am...
-Naina, wait!
cancelling your contract today.
-I am throwing all your stuff out.
-Naina, listen to me.
Youre crazy.
I dont want to see your face.
He has left.
Hes absolutely right,
Captain Uncle.
This is just a dream.
Tear it down!
I dont want this!
Shut it down!
I dont want this!
Shes leaving. Please stop her.
There's a storm raging in her life.
No one can stop her.
Shambhu. Janak.
Sorry, guys.
Please clean this up before
you leave for the day.
Can I stay back with them?
Youre new here.
And this isn't your job.
Ill do anything for Naina madam.
Such is the plight of lovers...
they build their own little world,
without a hint of hope.
Youre finally here.
Ive been waiting for so long.
Let's start.
Bring it in.
Well finish upstairs first.
-Are you out of your mind?
I opened a bookshop so that
I wouldn't have to dirty my hands.
You never dirty your hands
for a good deed.
And I know how clean you are.
But I have brought people along.
So you arent coming?
Come on, guys.
Now youre dirty.
Let's go.
Before you give me credit
for all this...
let me tell you,
I have done nothing, as usual.
This is Avis magic.
Whos Avi?
Poor boy did the unthinkable
and you dont know whos Avi.
Avinash, the guy you employed
Please sleep.
-No, no.
I was about to get up, anyway.
How can I sleep,
now that you're here.
I couldnt sleep all night...
thinking about how I will fix the caf
after firing Vikas in a fit of rage.
That's the bond which a
employer and his employee share.
They understand each other.
I wish to start a caf, as well.
But if I dont help you with your dream,
how will I build my own?
-Am I right, madam?
-Absolutely right.
But please stop calling me "madam."
I hate these formalities.
What else can I call you?
Call me Naina.
Or call me "sister" just
like Shambhu and Janak do.
Whats wrong with "sister"?
Well, I already have a sister.
Her name is Sonu...
Then call me Naina.
If were on first-name basis,
does that make us friends?
Then lets be friends.
I have something to say.
I think we should buy
a water purifier for the caf.
I think this--
Because Mom says that this purifier
gives you the purest water.
I was hungry,
but you seem to be
enjoying the food more.
What can I say?
I have never had a dinner
like this in my life.
-Excuse me, a paper towel, please.
-Have some more.
-No, I am done.
-Dont be shy.
-Should I call for more?
-No, I'm not being shy.
This is just the beginning,
Im sure we'll be having
many more dinners together.
Did someone ever tell you that...
you look really ugly
when you smile?
Then why dont you smile?
I seldom get an opportunity to smile.
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
Where are you off to?
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
Where are you off to?
Can I say something,
if you dont mind?
Of course.
I feel there is something
wrong with your caf.
people go to the temple,
to pray.
They go to the theatre,
to watch a film.
Similarly, they dont go to a caf,
just to have some coffee.
They go there...
I mean... they go there
to do a lot more.
Like what?
To each his own.
A caf should attract the attention
of any person.
Make him feel like this is
the place to be.
Why didnt I think of that?
Why do you have to think
as long as I am here?
Just wait and watch...
how I transform your National caf into
an International caf.
Here's your bag.
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
Where are you off to?
Where are you off to?
Where are you off to?
You better talk to your mother.
Next time... if she tries to sneak
into my room...
Ill either call the police
or send her to a mental asylum.
All I wanted...
was a glimpse of him.
-What happened?
Tell me what happened?
Why are you crying?
I... broke a heel.
That's no reason to cry.
That happens often.
And they can be fixed.
Not every broken thing can be fixed, Avi.
You can, if you try with a little love.
And, no need to cry over
what cant be fixed.
You can always get a new one.
You cant solve all my problems, Avi.
This is just the beginning.
I wouldnt let any problem touch you.
Arent you doing a little too much...
for a job that pays just 5,000 rupees?
Am I now?
Why dont you enjoy the service?
You can decide if you
want to raise my salary...
to 7,500 or reduce it
to 2,500 rupees later.
Please, smile.
What can you do for me right now?
Right now?
Your feet are gorgeous, my lady.
Dont let them touch the ground,
they are getting dirty.
My heart has fallen in love
Your name is now etched on my soul
Your love is enchanting
All I want is you
Everything happens for a reason
I know youre unaware
Everything happens for a reason
I know youre unaware
To make you mine
My heart made many mistakes
Many mistakes...
Many mistakes...
Many mistakes...
My dawns and dusks
My nights are sleepless
All I can do, is wait for you
Our distance makes me restless
All I can do, is wait for you
Your voice is what makes my heartbeat
Your image dwells even in my dreams
To make you mine
My heart made many mistakes
Many mistakes...
Many mistakes...
Many mistakes...
Many mistakes...
My heart has fallen in love
Your name is etched on my soul
My heart has fallen in love
Your name is etched on my soul
Your love is enchanting
All I want is you
I wonder what every lovestruck
guy tries to find in the moon?
Stop staring.
It will fall down.
A guy whose love lasts
only for a couple of hours...
will never know how long
one can stare at the moon.
Get some sleep, bro.
I know youre a Romeo at night
but in the morning,
youre just her employee.
I cant get enough sleep these days.
Cant sleep?
Why dont you take her along?
I swear, if she doesnt put you
in coma...
Ill change my name.
You are just...
Hold on.
Who is she?
What happened to the other one?
She was asking me to tattoo her name
on my arm.
I broke up with her on chat.
At least have the balls
to say it in person.
If you're not comfortable saying it,
write it down.
Of course.
If you're not comfortable saying it,
write it down.
Janak, clean this place.
You won my heart,
the moment I saw you for the first time.
You must be wondering
who is crazy enough
to write a letter in
todays time.
Its me...
Your Secret Admirer.
Avi, throw that away.
Yeah, that paper in the dustbin.
Avi, hold on.
Finish the other chores first.
-Someone's at the door.
Do this later.
You give me sleepless nights,
and make my days restless.
I think the only way to cure
this pain...
is when youll
utter my name.
Just like I chant your
name all day.
I have just one desire now.
Bear your attitude,
alleviate your sorrows...
and make you smile.
You know, Brownie,
I wrote that letter to Mom...
so that she can get over
that Tilak for good.
So that, she get rid of these heavy-duty
thoughts like "together-for-life"
and face the reality,
and accept the truth.
So Naina smiled after reading
your letter.
And she gave it a tight hug?
I mean I've never seen her this happy.
I know you wont lie to me...
but, I find it hard to believe.
You won my heart,
the moment I saw you for the first time.
Say it out loud...
Rukminis is going to live
her life on her own terms!
She doesn't give a damn about this world.
Whats wrong?
Whats wrong with you?
You look really happy.
I see...
Is it that obvious?
Only con artists hide their feelings.
Honest people are not capable of doing it.
You know, Avi, I have never done
anything like this before.
I am really scared.
Everything will go as per your plan.
You know, I always thought that
money can make the world move.
Me too.
But, I've just realized that even a piece
of paper can change someones life.
Of course, it can.
But Ill have to wait and watch
to see if this is true.
People bitten by the love
bug are at every nook and corner.
Millions dead...
and yet, billions are queuing up.
Captain Uncle, where can one buy
flowers in Shimla?
For a funeral?
No, for love.
Grandma, is Mom there?
She isn't home.
What do you mean?
I cant say.
Are you a writer?
Do you write well?
Did you write this?
It's good.
But... I didnt write this.
Then, why are you wasting my time.
Just because someone wrote you
a letter
will you look for him on the streets?
Ask any random person?
But just like you said...
Rukmini, you must live
life on your own terms.
I was shocked to read this letter...
because someone thinks about me
more than I do.
I will find my secret admirer.
What is it?
Who called for these?
I dont know.
Someone left them outside.
Someone left them outside.
He must have done it.
He sent these flowers.
He must be around.
Keep it.
Thats mine.
Read your own letter.
I was reading my own letter.
She used my emotional letter
to heal her mothers heart.
Its okay, buddy.
There's no shortage of
girls in this world.
Your decision to leave is
absolutely right.
When did I say that?
So you're not leaving?
Why would I leave?
This was just a temporary setback,
not a loss.
Ill start afresh.
I'll think of something new.
And anyway, her mothers definitely in
a better mood after reading the letter.
If her mother's happy,
obviously, Naina will be happy.
And when everyones happy,
everything goes well.
My daughter says bad is good.
So Im going to be bad.
Mom, I didn't tell you
to be so bad.
Tilaks divorce papers.
They were lying in the cupboard
all this while.
But now I am taking them out
and keeping them on this table.
Now thats like my girl.
Now that Tiku will learn his lesson.
And look...
I'll resume my practice today!
Youre doing a great job
at being bad.
After the divorce,
Im going to stay with you.
Of course.
You will stay with us.
I dont want to live with that idiot.
Of course, grandma.
We wont let you!
Come on, Mom. Now sign these
papers quickly, please.
Of course not.
I'll do it,
only after I find my secret admirer.
Sorry, I am late.
-Is your mother alright?
She is absolutely fine.
Lets get these done today.
We have been ignoring it
for a long time.
-But the accounts are done.
Did you do it?
-I thought you did them.
-Actually, I did it.
-He did it.
-You know accounting?
-Yes, I do.
You never asked, so, I never
mentioned it.
Wow! Wow!
Words arent enough to praise you!
It's hard to find such hard-working
boys on a tight budget.
What happened?
Avi, what are they saying?
Avi, what are they saying?
I dont understand their language.
I don't know,
someone was staring at the girl.
It's good to know that
these fights are common.
I thought this was just an Indian thing.
So... you know accounts
as well as Chinese.
I do.
But they were speaking Japanese.
So, you know Japanese as well?
And about 10-12 more languages.
And of course, you didnt tell
me because I didnt ask.
Mr. Avinash, before I inform the police...
that some secret agent has
infiltrated my caf...
tell me who you are.
Honestly, I am Avinash.
I'm not some secret agent.
But I am on a secret mission.
Actually, my family left
me here...
warning me that I cannot return
until I find a bride.
I thought Ill work at a caf.
Girls frequently visit cafs,
maybe someone will notice me.
You just wait here,
I will take a decision right now.
Captain Uncle. Hes a bloody fraud.
How does he know
so many foreign languages?
He wanted to make an
international caf, didnt he?
Hell just add "inter"
to our "National" caf.
And make it an international
Naina... he cannot just take over
our caf.
Do you want me to believe
his stupid excuse...
that he's trying to find
a bride?
Hes got his hands in every
single department of our caf.
And much more.
No, dear.
I dont think so.
What do I look like?
Theres no way I will let him
take me for a ride.
I will show him.
Come along.
Wong Ching Pong, here we go.
Your services are no longer required.
Youre fired.
Why are you being so formal?
Were friends.
No, we're not. You are not the
guy you were pretending to be.
And youre definitely not the guy I hired.
How does it matter?
The fact is that I am the best
man for this caf.
Let me be the judge of
what's best for this caf.
I know its National caf,
but its mine.
And Ive no intentions of
taking it over.
Uncle, please talk to her.
What is she thinking?
The owner says that youre a cheap man.
-And, I dont even know you.
Okay anyway,
stop wasting my time and get out.
I dont care, and I dont want
to know.
You really dont know.
Youve to give 30 days' notice
before you fire an employee.
If you dont want to end up in
legal trouble before the opening...
then, you must bear with me
for 30 days.
So, Ill leave now and
come back tomorrow.
He knows the law as well.
I think this man is trouble.
Captain Uncle,
dont give him any work.
No work at all.
Dear Lord, benevolent one.
How long will you mischievously
keep admiring me from a distance?
Step into the light,
and into my life.
Please reply to my letter
as soon as possible.
Yours, Rukmini.
Whats going on?
The priest says that
he secretly loves me.
But hes afraid to admit it.
There is no one.
Sit down, Naina...
and listen to what the priest
has to say.
Hey, priest!
What bullshit are you
feeding my mother?
What is your problem?
Why will a priest have a problem?
Priests have solutions.
Look... Ive found a solution.
Rukmini has written a love letter to God.
Soon, the Lord will initiate
his divine game...
and things will fall in place.
Priest, all I want is
a reply to my letter.
You'll get it tomorrow.
-What nonsense!
-No, you won't.
-Of course, I will.
Mom, its not going to happen.
If I don't get a reply,
Ill harm myself.
-Mom, I am leaving.
-Okay, dear.
Drive safe.
-What are you doing there?
-Waiting... for the love letter.
Are you going to stand there all day?
Whether I sit, stand, sing, or
dance, its my wish.
Mind your own business.
I said leave.
Here you go.
-Dont do it.
-Whats wrong? Let me do it.
Thats my job.
Im just checking the stock.
Let me do it.
I was halfway through,
youll just make a mess.
-Its alright. Let me do it.
-Like I said...
I know how many cakes have arrived today,
you dont.
-Fine, you do it.
-I was doing it!
Whats wrong with him?
Are they fresh?
Oh, God.
Dont do it. Dont do it.
This is not your job, either.
This is my job.
-Let me--
-I know where to keep these.
Why did you get these?
-You keep them!
-I am doing it!
You'll get a heart attack.
These two have a fight...
and I've to bear the brunt of it!
Oh, God!
Dont climb up there.
Dont do it. Dont do it.
Dont do it. Dont do it.
Dont do anything.
-Whats wrong?
-How do I explain?
My jobs at stake here.
-Dont do anything.
Dont do anything.
And anyway, you look so tired.
I know youve worked
really hard...
and made this caf what it
is today.
-Look! Look!
-What are you doing, Captain Uncle?
Whats... going on here?
Well have to tolerate him for 30 days.
Please come to my office.
If you behave like this...
no one will get anything
for you.
Go on!
Whats going on, Captain Uncle?
Some people achieve what they perceive.
And some are losers like him
who just waste their time.
Let him be.
That's alright.
But, at least you focus on
your work.
What happened?
The caf invites are still here.
Anyway, please have these delivered.
Just a minute.
Listen to me.
Dont be mad.
I said sorry.
-I have a small job for you.
-Now you want me to work.
Come on.
Do it for me.
These are the invites for our
cafs opening.
Please have these delivered.
-What a stupid job?
-Its a job after all.
And you said you want to work.
Please do it for me.
Heres the money.
I have money.
Ill talk to you when I get back.
You seem to have a lot of money!
Why don't you give me some?
I'll walk over to the third
street and deliver it.
Is the address close-by?
It's the second house on the third street.
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
There she goes
Ruk. Ruk. Rukmini
Ruk. Ruk. Rukmini
There she goes...
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
There she goes...
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
There she goes...
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
Looking nice, Auntie.
Who are you calling auntie?
Dont come again.
Captain, the boy who just walked in,
does he work here?
You mean... Avinash?
-So, his name is Avinash?
I see...
You've good manners
even at such a young age.
-Age has nothing to do with it.
-Thats true.
Age has nothing to do with anything.
-Mom, please come inside.
Come meet me in the office.
"You look so cute
when you deck up.
I see you in my dreams
day and night.
Its not right to read out
your love letter.
But, between us...
this letter, as compared to
the earlier one, lacks passion.
But still... Avinash,
youre such an amazing writer.
How did Avinash get into all this?
Avinash is my secret admirer.
-What nonsense, Mom?
-Call me sister.
I am sure he knows,
but still...
sister sounds so much better.
-May I come in?
-Yes, of course.
How did you know I was thirsty, Avi?
-Can I call you Avi?
-Call me anything you want.
By the way, how long have
you been--
Youve been wasting time.
Go and do some work.
Go on.
But you said I shouldnt work.
But now I am telling you to work.
-Go, go.
Mom, hes my employee.
He can't dare to write a
love letter to you.
I am sure theres some confusion.
Naina, I loved a blue-blooded man.
But what did I get in return?
But this common man changed my life.
But as long as we dont confirm
that Avinash is your secret admirer,
please stop this drama...
and go home.
Take those anklets off and
wear my shoes.
-Come on.
-Yeah, I know.
Youre feeling embarrassed.
Because, a guy your age is hitting on me.
What if hes your employee,
hell available in the evening
after his working hours.
Until then, I'll go to
Pinky's parlor
and get ready for him.
Avi, whats wrong?
I cant change clothes again.
I apologize for everything
that happened inside.
Actually... I wanted to say
something to you.
But... its a little personal.
Where are you taking my boyfriend?
No, Mom...
I am with Brownie.
If you are with Brownie,
am I sitting here
with her twin sister?
-Yeah, Jude.
-Where are you?
Nainas brought me out of the city.
I think something is going to
happen today.
Just hold on for a second.
Say that again.
I was saying that somethings
going to happen today.
-Really, son?
I just made a conference call
to give them the good news.
Avi, can we come over
to watch you.
Stop embarrassing me, Sonu.
If it's all set, why are you
feeling embarrassed?
Come over, Sonu.
Jude! Stop this nonsense!
Ill call you later.
Dont waste your time holding hands.
Just kiss her.
Okay, bye.
Don't call me again. Bye.
If you want me to sign the
divorce papers...
then it's crucial I meet Avi.
Youre getting me wrong, Mom.
It's not what you think.
Ill explain everything later.
Avi, I need to ask you something.
Please dont say "no."
What if I say "yes" even before you ask?
Then, I will always be grateful to you.
Why are you being so formal?
It's me.
Actually, I...
I dont know how to say this.
I mean my...
-You as well?
Its easy.
You can say it.
You can do it.
My moms in love with you.
So, you brought me all the way
out here...
to tell me this.
Actually, my mom
was pretty depressed.
Then one day I got a letter
from some secret admirer.
I thought, if Mom receives a
letter like this,
maybe, she will forget
about her problems.
I sent that letter to my mom.
Please, just pretend for a few days.
Just pretend that you are
my moms secret admirer...
and you wrote those letters to her.
I promise that Ill tell her
everything when the time is right.
Just for a few days, Avi.
So, Rukmini suggested meeting here.
Why not?
It's my daughter's caf after all.
Why are you here?
And, how dare you bring her here.
We didnt come here to meet you.
Can we get a table for four?
You can forget about getting a
table here even after the opening.
And for four people?
-Who did you invite?
-I didnt invite anyone.
Your mother invited me over to
introduce me to her boyfriend.
Yes, Naina.
I invited him.
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
Whats wrong with you?
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
Whats wrong with you?
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
Whats wrong with you?
I wont leave without meeting Avi.
And, I must introduce him to
these guys as well.
What are you doing, Mom?
I will definitely let you
meet Avi...
but why introduce him to these guys?
That's necessary.
We lovebirds will often
bump into each other.
At the park, the theatre,
sunset point.
I dont want us to bump into each
other without a formal introduction.
That would be so awkward.
Isnt this awkward as well?
Please send the man of the hour.
Mom, I dont know how to say this,
he is not coming.
Promises once made must be kept.
Make it quick.
Tilak, how are you?
I am fine.
He has that effect on people.
Karishma... how old are you?
And Avi?
Just a year younger to her.
Karishma, how educated are you?
-Ive completed my graduation.
Is that all?
Avi. Youre highly educated, arent you?
-Come on.
Tilak... do you have any questions?
What did you say your name was?
-Avinash I--
-How much sugar?
No sugar, no milk.
Ive stopped drinking coffee.
And Rukmini knows.
Thats even better.
Your loss is my gain. Again!
Youre so naughty, Avi.
Really sorry, guys.
But I am a little drunk.
Of course, if you don't have a problem,
lets have some more.
I am sure you know.
This is how they drink coffee in Ireland.
How about I make your coffee
Irish as well?
As far as I know,
Rukmini doesnt drink alcohol.
I've come a long way from
the woman you once knew.
By the way...
-What do you do?
-What do I do?
Actually, I do everything.
The chair youre sitting on,
resting your hands...
the glass youre drinking water from,
and the place where youll take it out.
I deserve the credit for it all.
-I work in this caf.
-You dont look like an employee.
Thats because these days I am
someones prince charming.
With a catch like this, the happiness
will clearly show on the face.
Right, Rukmini?
You know, the name Rukmini is too long.
Too long.
If I can call you Avi,
you can definitely call me Mini.
Its your personal affair.
You can call each other anything you want.
Why will it matter to us?
How do I address our
ever changing relationship?
I mean its changing at the
speed of a rocket.
A few days ago,
you were my boss.
Then we became friends.
What do I call you now?
Only I have a right to call her daughter.
Even I have a right to call her daughter.
In fact, why dont we let Naina
and Avi decide that?
Fine, you guys can decide among
yourselves who will address whom as what.
Come, darling. Lets go.
Youll have to make new
divorce papers.
I didnt want to sign these
at first.
But, now I am so happy that,
I couldnt stop signing.
Must have been hard...
for Tilak.
But do you feel sad for him?
Why will I feel sad?
-Youre here for me.
Why? Whats wrong?
Youre okay, right?
Sorry I...
Well, I tried Irish coffee
for the first time.
So, Im sloshed.
The things you do for love.
I know them pretty well.
Well, I'll take your leave.
Avi, I am really sorry for
whatever happened inside.
I didn't know the situation--
You got what you wanted, right?
Avi, I know it was a
difficult job.
You dont know what youve done
for me.
Wow, Mom!
It seems like you never stopped
practicing at all.
By the way, you look like you're in a
very happy mood today.
Why wouldnt I be?
Last night, my boyfriend Avi
blew Tilak out of the water.
Mom, are you sure about Avinash?
Is he interested in someone else?
I mean, how would I know.
why are you asking me about him?
-Are you in love with him?
-Who me?
You know that I dont waste
my time thinking about love.
Love cannot be explained,
or perceived in thoughts.
-Love just happens.
-I see.
Just like dengue and malaria.
When someone stays up all night
to fulfill your dreams...
and the mere mention of his
name makes you restless...
and fireworks go off in
your heart.
When nothing seems impossible
because hes with you.
-Have you ever felt that way?
-Yes, I did.
No. I mean never.
Yes... never.
That means yes.
Dont be shy.
Tell me who he is.
Mom, stop it.
Now listen, you've finally
taken a decision about Dad.
Yes, I have.
And you've resumed practicing.
Yes, I have.
-So, lifes back on track again?
Now, let's end Avi's track at this point
What is your connection
with my love story?
This is between Avi and me,
which he started.
Mom, lets not worry about
who started what and why?
Lets end this here.
My daughters getting insecure.
Mom will never forget you.
And Avi will love you a lot as well.
Mom, you dont know anything.
And dear...
you dont know me.
Just wait and watch...
Avi and I will be inseparable!
Are you alright?
Youre mad...
at Naina?
Is she mad at you?
-How would I know about her feelings?
They say that if you want
the daughter...
then you must keep her
mother happy.
And if you like the mother,
you must keep the daughter happy.
-Are you getting me?
You are smart.
-How was your date, Rukmini?
-It was amazing.
You should get a boyfriend as well.
-We can go on a double date.
-Of course.
I am always ready.
Thank you.
Everything was going well.
I mean random conversations.
But then it happened.
What happened?
-He's with a lady.
Now theres good news
and there's some bad news.
Give me the good news first.
My family didn't see my
so-called girlfriends face.
And the bad news?
I am pregnant and it's your child.
...they want to meet her now.
Let them meet her.
Who? Your mom?
Her daughter.
Ill be your girlfriend.
Am I not good enough?
-I mean, you and me--
-Well look like a really cute couple.
Wait, let me show you.
Be careful!
See... we look so cute.
I look like the crazy type,
and you look so mature.
Should I wear a traditional
outfit tomorrow?
Yeah, just like I saw you
for the first time.
Yeah. Since, they'll be
seeing you for the first time.
And, they will never know.
Ill pretend to be completely
Me too.
In fact, I will be...
the better actor.
Of course.
It's just acting.
You did it for me, and
Ill do it for you.
It's just acting.
Avi, if my eyes tear up
when I see her...
please dont be embarrassed.
Dont be embarrassed
if I start crying, either.
No, this is the first time.
I mean tears of joy.
But where is she?
Where is she?
-Sonu, isnt she the same girl?
-Yes, Mom.
This girl very confidently proclaimed
that she'll never get married.
And you made her fall for you.
Bravo, son.
Shes already approved.
-Am I right?
You really proved yourself, Avi.
Auntie! Please.
Uncle, she isnt the one
who was on the bike with you?
That's her, Mishti.
She looks different in a helmet.
Have your juice.
-That's my mom, my aunt, sister...
Avi talks about you guys so much...
that I dont feel like were
meeting for the first time.
Were quiet just because of Avi.
Or else, I can tell you right now,
-where and when we--
Its nothing.
Auntie is just joking.
Youre looking nice.
So how do you like my Naina?
This is the happiest day of my life.
This is better than...
the day you were born.
-What is this?
I cant take this.
Mom, I think youre getting late.
Let's wrap this up.
We just got here,
and youre asking us to leave?
Actually, Naina has to leave as well.
Her mother is feeling unwell.
-I am so sorry, dear.
-No, shes okay, Auntie.
Actually, her mother has
a mental condition, you know.
But Avi, we must meet her mother.
Why Mom?
Whats the point?
Well, well have to discuss the
wedding with her mother.
What do you want to discuss?
You just book a venue and
well be there.
This is not some yoga class.
"Well be there."
I am sure her mother has some opinions.
Auntie, I think it's best not to
ask her mother about her opinion.
She has a mental--
Whats wrong, Avi?
-This place is infested with mosquitoes...
-You go home, dear.
Well come over tomorrow for tea.
-Tomorrow evening?
-Tomorrow evening?
Mom is getting ready.
She will be down soon.
She takes time to get ready.
Lets come back later.
Come on. Lets go.
Sit down.
Hes very shy.
You call that being shy?
They should see our Rukmini.
Whats wrong with you?
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
-Hey... is that her mother?
-What's wrong with you?
Ruk... Ruk... Rukmini
Whats wrong with you?
Well, it cant be her father
in a sari.
Avi, pass the plate.
-Help yourself.
-Thank you, dear.
How are you feeling now?
What's wrong with me?
Avi was saying...
I am so sorry.
I dropped my glass.
I should be the one who's nervous.
After all, the groom's family is here.
-Avi didnt want us to meet you.
-I see.
Hes a shy guy.
Maybe he wanted to
surprise everyone.
When Avi first told us
his love story...
we were really surprised!
We couldnt believe it.
But God works in mysterious ways.
He has a plan for everyone.
Yes. Right.
Mom, can I sit with Auntie?
Of course.
Go on, Mishti.
You dont need to ask.
Youll be sitting next to her
for the rest of your life.
Go on.
Come on, dear.
Come here.
Come, Mishti.
My child.
So, what do you think about Avi?
I can't praise him enough.
Avis the only guy in our
entire family...
who has bagged such a
big trophy in love.
I hope youre happy
with this relationship?
What are you saying?
I hope you dont have any
objection to his choice?
Why would we object?
Our son always wanted a beautiful,
talented and mature girl,
which he got.
In fact, Avinash deserves
all the credit.
Ever since he has--
What happened?
-Are you okay?
-I am fine.
Are these samosas?
I am allergic to samosa.
-Allergic to samosa?
-Since when?
-Since last month.
Ill keep this in mind.
Well never make samosas again.
Take these away.
These samosas are really bad.
So, shall we leave?
Sit. Sit.
We havent discussed
the important stuff.
I was waiting for you to
bring it up.
I feel a little embarrassed to
fix the date of the wedding myself.
That's strange.
You must fix the date.
You guys are really modern people.
I am so fortunate...
that Ill soon be part of your family.
Me too, Mother.
Now fix a date quickly
and come to Delhi.
Well have a grand wedding.
The girl is so beautiful.
But the relationship between
mother and daughter--
Hold on. Hold on.
Naina doesnt know that
you wrote that letter to her.
And Rukmini thinks that you
wrote that letter to her.
Your family thinks that
Naina is your girlfriend.
And Rukmini thinks that
youre going to marry her.
And you...
love Naina.
But she doesnt see that.
I am in a big mess.
Dont you see a way out?
No, there is.
Thats why I am leaving today.
But today is the cafs
opening ceremony.
I will leave once it's done.
Many poets perished...
Lovers died...
And Romeos lost
-their lives
-Wow, that's great!
Anyone who dared to
cross the sea of love...
drowned in the middle
Getting me, Son?
Theres a girl at the party
Looking so gorgeous
Theres a girl at the party
Looking so gorgeous
Shes a little traditional, and
a little modern
She looks so sweet,
And she packs some heat
I never thought
She will be so feisty
As she sways to the
Hot hot beat...
And moves her waist,
this sizzler of Shimla
She adds sparkle to the party...
And keeps dancing,
This sizzler of Shimla
As she sways to the
Hot hot beat...
And moves her waist,
this sizzler of Shimla
You send out two
Wedding invites
Your phones running two sim-cards
You have your sights here,
And there as well
No matter how hard you try to hide,
But I know
You have your sights here,
And there as well
No matter how hard you try to hide,
But I know
She used me,
Confused my heart
When will she change her flavor
As she sways to the
Hot hot beat...
And moves her waist,
This sizzler of Shimla
She adds sparkle at the party...
And keeps dancing,
This sizzler of Shimla
Listen up...
The year was 1950,
And I was the apple of everyones eye
The boys in the neighborhood
-Were crazy about me
-What are you saying?
Look at my moves
Look at me groove
As I sway my waist
Their hearts skip a beat
As she sways to the
Hot hot beat...
And moves her waist,
This sizzler of Shimla
She adds sparkle at the party
And keeps dancing,
This sizzler of Shimla
As she sways to the
Hot-hot beat...
And moves her waist,
This sizzler of Shimla
She adds sparkle at the party...
And keeps dancing,
This sizzler of Shimla.
As she sways to the
Hot-hot beat
And moves her waist,
This sizzler of Shimla
She adds sparkle at the party
And keeps dancing,
This sizzler of Shimla
What are you doing here?
Were you expecting someone else?
You showed me the trailer of
your love...
do you want to show the
movie to someone else?
Thats not true, Rukmini.
But the situation is such that
I have to leave.
Are you leaving...
or are you running away?
Something like that.
Actually, Ms. Rukmini...
I don't--
You dont love me.
But you do love someone else.
When you met Tilak at the caf...
you had at least four drinks.
Two for showing your confidence to Tilak...
and two more for showing
someone how frustrated you are.
You pretended to be in love
with me because of Naina.
Because you...
love her.
How do you know?
What do I call you now?
I also know that Nainas
secretly watching us.
I did take my daughters advice
and got carried away.
Maybe, that was the right
thing to do back then.
But now I am in my senses.
I wont let her get
carried away.
I wont tell her that you love her.
Always love the one who loves you.
And trusts you more than herself.
Where are you going?
Back where I came from.
What did Mom say?
She said that she got
carried away...
but now shes in her senses.
Why are you leaving suddenly?
Actually, there's something...
In fact, I had a lot to say to you.
What do you want to say, Naina?
You have done a lot for me.
And sorry that you didn't find
your dream girl...
the one you came to Shimla for.
Actually, I did find her, Naina.
But I could never get her.
Forget it.
Your cafs open now.
And your moms back to normal.
Everything that happened
between us--
Did anything happen between us, Naina?
I mean all the problems that we had...
So, is that all we had?
Its that stupid letter
writers fault.
Thats where all the problems started.
Ill solve this problem for
you as well.
You wont be getting
letters anymore, Naina.
Your stupid letter writer
is leaving.
It was your heartbeat in my heart
But I couldn't see it
Your love was keeping me alive
But I didn't realize
Everyone else knew...
Except me
How much you loved me
But how could I not know
That you love me?
How could I not know
That youre waiting for me?
Im looking everywhere for you
And trying to trace your footsteps
The tears of joy...
Never ever dry up
Since this distance has become
So unbearable...
My heart is afraid to live on
But how could I not know
That you love me?
How could I not know
That youre waiting for me?
Such guys should be
publicly shamed.
God knows how many more hearts
will he break.
Mom... whats wrong with you today?
That idiot Avinash tried to
flirt with me first.
Then he broke your heart and
ran away.
He did it for me, and you know that.
Yes, I know.
He tried really hard to make
you happy.
But what was the result?
If he wanted to see you happy,
he shouldve done it properly.
He shouldve stayed back.
Youre being really hard on him.
For the past one week...
youve been sleeping in my room,
your mothers room.
Holding me tight.
All this while, you took care of me.
And now Ive to look after you.
And all this for a letter.
Whats this?
Didn't you notice this?
If this was for me,
I wouldve thrown it away.
-When did this arrive?
-I dont know.
Ive stopped reading letters.
And you dont read it either.
Stay out of this mess.
And listen, get ready.
Dont you have a caf to run?
Children, what will you do,
when Uncle and Auntie enter?
Throw flowers.
Hi, Auntie.
Mishti says absurd things.
Didn't I tell you?
See Nainas here.
Thats not what you said,
You asked whether Naina will
show up or not?
But I knew that Naina will
show up.
Why wouldn't she?
After all, this is Avis wedding.
Where is Avi?
Sorry, but I was just rehearsing
dance moves with my friends.
Wait a second.
How am I looking?
You look very happy.
Well, I have a reason to
be happy.
But... when did you get here?
Just now.
I am getting married!
This is my first wedding.
What is it?
This marriage was fixed
by your family, right?
why are you so happy?
Why do you look so excited?
It's the excitement of
getting the one I love.
And dont hit me.
I am not that same old Avi anymore.
Is she really very beautiful?
Yes, Naina. Shes very beautiful.
Like an angel.
I mean... big black eyes.
Pink lips.
Thats how Mom described her.
Shes the one who saw her.
And do you know what Sonu
was saying?
Whoever marries her...
And your aunt?
She must have said something as well.
Totally sexy, dude.
So Avi... do I have pale eyes.
Or rugged lips.
And my figure?
-Dont I look sexy?
-Naina, what are you doing?
Naina, there are people around.
Avi, I know I think I am
very smart and clever.
But I am very stupid.
When you helped me with the caf
and the accounts...
I shouldve known how special you are.
I couldve googled you
when you spoke in Japanese, at least
And all the time you were with me,
I shouldve realized it back then.
If you would've confessed your love...
maybe, I wouldve lost my
temper, but I...
wouldve understood your
feelings eventually.
And all this wouldn't have...
So, after all this... it's still my fault.
You're impossible.
Avi, wait.
Is that your problem?
That I could never go beyond "I"?
And why should I?
Cant you see my emotions?
And why do I have to say it
if its clearly visible?
A decent, well-educated guy
was sweeping your caf floor.
Instead of playing golf on
hes cleaning your chimneys,
and you still didnt get it.
Dont say that.
-You think all this is a joke?
Naina, the fact is,
that I am getting married.
Your mom gave me these bracelets.
Let me help you with that.
Don't say another word to
my daughter.
Just because she bothered you...
that doesn't give you the right...
to bother her.
What should I do with your daughter?
When I give her a love letter,
she passes it on like a football.
And what have I done?
I'm just blabbering.
In fact, Ive been blabbering
since the day we met.
But for the first time, she's
And doesn't know that shes
the scapegoat.
And I am really stupid.
I could never tell you that
I can be anyone for you.
Naina, I can do anything for you.
I am so restless without you...
whether I'm in Shimla, or in Delhi.
And so is my heart.
And thats why I want to say this
in everyones presence...
Not fair, Grandma.
Wow, Rukmini.
Your plan was...
Please, get them married quickly.
Tell me something.
Avinash, our son-in-law, what does he do?
Hes the language translator for
the External Affairs Minister.
I must leave now, son.
Sir, its my wedding.
You must have a drink.
Isnt that Rukmini?
-What is she doing here?
-Shes my mother-in-law.
Years ago, when you were just 20...
and you would walk down the street...
people would keenly wait
to catch a glimpse of you.
You would make their hearts skip a beat.
-And I was one of those Romeos.
-I see...
-I wrote many letters to you.
but I never had the guts to send them.
And then one day I found out
that you were married.
And I also found out that you
didn't have a happy marriage.
Someone's been doing their homework!
Its love after all,
Although one-sided...
But its true love
Well... Rukmini,
what have you thought about your future?
I will give it a thought.
I hope that you dont take too long
to think...
and Ill have to climb up
some water tank,
jump down, and die.
