Silsila (1981) Movie Script

When my veil falls away
I'm overcome with shyness
When my veil falls away
I'm overcome with shyness
When I see my sisters in love
I feel the stirrings within me
When I fall asleep
I dream of many things
And when the man I love
Comes in my dreams
New seasons of spring come to life
I feel a new stirring within me
And there is only one image
I hold in my eyes
When my veil falls away
I'm overcome with shyness
Let's steal a few moments from life
To quench this fire on our breath
Let us make a new world for us
A world far away from this world
When I look into your eyes
What magic comes over me?
When the heart feels lonely
I feel like you are looking into my eyes
When my veil falls away
I'm overcome with shyness
Every moment we share is precious
Who knows what will happen tomorrow
Life is such a long journey
I'm afraid I don't know what will happen
But ever since I gave you my heart
I can't sleep anymore
Oh, these words that you speak!
I've given myself a bad reputation
When the veil falls away
She's overcome with shyness
When she sees her sisters in love
She feels the stirrings within me
When I fall asleep
I'm dreaming of you
And when the man I love comes in my dreams
New seasons of spring come to life
I feel a new stirring within me
And there is only one image
I hold in my eyes
When the veil falls away
A shyness comes over her
A strong tradition is what makes
our outlook so different.
This song about the spring
takes a whole new look
at the relationship
between a man and a woman.
Motherhood is making her feel so good.
Someday, I'll give you all my love.
That will be my gift to you.
I'll be waiting for that day.
The most beautiful country
in the whole world
Our Hindustan
The most beautiful country
in the whole world
Our Hindustan
We are her hummingbirds
Her garden is our playground
The most beautiful country
in the whole world
Our Hindustan
The most beautiful country
in the whole world
Ladies and gentlemen,
thanks to your support,
today's program has been a great success.
As you know, the money we've raised,
will be donated
to the Air Force Wives Welfare Association
and used for the school.
Thank you for your co-operation.
-Victory to India.
-Victory to India
Leave your hair open. You look great!
How was the speech I wrote for you?
Judging by the applause,
the audience must've liked it.
Look, I'm sorry I'm late.
Is all this waiting the price
for being in love with a pilot?
This isn't just a question
of a day or two,
-this is the question of a lifetime.
-Just think about it.
When a pilot is with you,
he's only with you.
Not like those civilians
who sit beside the women they love
-and worry about their taxes.
-You pay taxes when you earn.
You waste half your salary on booze.
Drinks are for the lion-hearted!
I've seen this lion meowing like a cat.
Sweetheart, for the sake of our love!
The life I wished to live with you.
In loneliness I have lived.
A strange silence pervades.
Even soliloquy is oppressive.
In solitude, I ask myself.
Beyond this beauty all around me,
beyond the bounds of time
Is there anyone who is waiting for me?
There's pity in his voice.
A certain sensuousness.
He is in search of someone.
Who is he?
If his voice has swept you off your feet,
what will happen if you meet him?
Meet him?
You'll have to.
What are you staring at? He's my brother.
For the first time I have seen
Such a beauty
Is she a girl?
Or is she fire?
Is she a girl?
Or is she fire?
This is a fire
Be careful, this is a fire
Better to die in cold water
Save your youth
Save your youth, boy
A man who cannot
enjoy the fires of youth
Is he a man?
Is he a man?
I have just come of age
It's new and it's painful
The thoughts are maddening
Count your blessings, my boy
Count your blessings, my boy
I have wasted my blessings
I have lost everything
I have lost everything
Go away, my hunter
Your bait is stale
Try using the bait somewhere else
I'm not a bird can you trap,
my lanky one
No girl will get hooked
How will I overcome
this distance between us?
God alone knows the plight of my heart
God alone knows the plight of my heart
You've just seen me from a distance
And you are head over heels
Try holding my hand
Try holding my hand, my boy
Once I take your hand,
I will never leave it
Remember that, my beauty
Remember that, my beauty
Remember that, my beauty
I was scared to death.
When I'm flying, I feel like a king.
And you are the queen of my heart!
-Gurdip Singh!
-Hi, Amit!
-You bloody fool!
-How are you?
I'm still a bachelor.
You're married, right?
-Everything all right?
-Fit and fine, my boy.
Won't you introduce me to your wife?
Of course. Come on in.
This is my friend Amit.
Simran, this my best friend.
You've done your bit. Now get out.
-What are you saying?
-For a minute. Out.
-She's my wife!
-I know. But this is private. Go out
Simran, don't worry! I'm right out here!
Get the flowers out of the way.
You can bring the spring into my life!
Do me one small favor.
-After that, I'll serve you all my life.
I'll tell you.
You see, there was someone at
your wedding. She was in a pink dress.
She was very fair. But not as fair as you.
Who? Chandni?
-Amit, what are you up to?
-Shut up!
-I'm coming in!
-Stay out, you ass.
Can you introduce her to me?
And give me her address. Please.
My mother is here.
This is creating the wrong impression!
Stop it!
Please! Do this for me.
It was her birthday
the day before yesterday.
-Shut up!
MY bad luck!
I missed her by a couple of days!
-I'll give you her address.
-God bless you!
May you mother a hundred sons!
You want me to start farming sons?
You ass! What are you staring at?
I'm in love. Don't you see?
And I couldn't even send her flowers
for her birthday.
I couldn't wish you on your birthday.
I'm punishing myself for it.
On this day, every month,
I'll send you flowers.
Flowers with their beauty
and fragrance will say a lot.
Should you please,
ask my flowers about me.
But I can't sign them off with
a "Yours, Amit."
Amit, the weather is splendid here.
Come over to Kashmir for a few days.
It'd be fun, Shekhar.
Coming, brother.
-Do me a favor, darling!
-Whatever you wish.
Amit is coming today.
Pick him up at the airport.
-And you?
-Duty, darling. Duty.
Flying a sortie to Pathankot.
I'll be back very soon.
But I've never met Amit.
This brother of mine is one in a million.
Tall, handsome.
There's a sparkle in his eyes.
And what a voice!
He stands apart in a crowd.
You'll have no problem.
You'll recognize him
as soon as you see him.
Excuse me, are you Mr. Amit?
You must be Shobha.
-My brother...
-mentions you often.
-mentions you often.
-Didn't he come?
-He sent me to receive you. Come on.
Come on.
You say you're Shekhar's brother
and then you start laughing?
Yes, there was a dilemma,
solved after due deliberation.
I see.
My brother is a year and a half
older than me. But we've been friends.
We started smoking together.
And then drinking. Together.
We shared our first drink.
But before that we fell in love together.
-With the same girl.
-You know about it?
Before that we used to bathe
naked together.
-Heard that too.
-But you didn't hear everything.
We kept reversing roles.
Reversing roles? I don't understand.
When one of us landed in a spot,
the other would play big brother.
You'll drive me out of my mind!
Just a sample. We're going
to spend a lifetime together.
-You're related to my brother.
I'm related to my brother.
That makes us relatives?
Mother, this is the famous Mr. Amit.
More of an actor than a playwright.
This is punishment!
-Greetings, Mother.
-Greetings, Son.
Tell me, what would you like to eat?
What is your favorite?
Someone once asked me
what my favorite dish is.
Punjabi, South Indian, Chinese,
Continental, Lebanese, Greek?
-You know what I told him?
The food my mother cooks for me.
I'll get you something.
Very smart! You've floored Mother.
Don't fall for the cliche.
The floored opponent will rise.
Then it's someone else's turn
to get floored.
So you see, the cliche
is a cliche after all.
Mother! I've had enough for a day!
I thought you'd turn out
to be a serious playwright.
-But you turned out...
-To be a joker?
-I was just doing my duty.
Entertaining you in my brother's absence.
So the sentiments
are solely for your brother?
Maybe around ten percent of my feelings
are towards you.
Thank you for your ten percent.
Hope you are happy.
The percentage will climb
until the day my brother disappears.
I'm not one of those who disappear.
Wherever I am, you will find the stardust.
Not just friends, even my enemies
cannot forget me.
You brag too much. Come on, give me a hug.
She isn't dancing. Break her in.
-Where is Shekhar?
-Shekhar? Gone for a tipple.
This brother of mine drinks a lot.
All the time.
Keep him on a leash. Say what,
start tightening the screws.
He'll go overboard someday.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
Come on, dance.
Don't you know how to dance?
Up here. I'm dancing one floor up.
Hey, sweetheart!
Please come.
You taught her? Now teach her.
Come on.
-What's this, Shekhar?
You're drinking too much.
Did Amit put you up to this?
You don't know him.
He's a bloody alcoholic.
A born alcoholic.
If you listen to him, I'm doomed.
-What's your name?
Where do you live?
Your telephone number?
Brother, you're great!
You're driving you jeep
like you're flying your jet!
Let me drive.
Brother, slowly!
We aren't the Air Force, man.
We're civilians. Have mercy on us.
-You're driving too fast!
-Let me drive.
It'll move slowly once it starts moving.
Shift gears.
Remember that song
we used to sing in college?
Cover up your ears.
In the betel shop
Under my girl's house!
In the betel shop
Under my girl's house!
Let's make a little merry!
Let's have a few kisses!
In the betel shop
Under my girl's house!
Let's make a little merry!
Let's have a few kisses!
In the betel shop
Get down. Let me go home.
Please get out. Let me go home.
In the betel shop
Under my girl's house!
Let's make a little merry!
Let's have a few kisses!
In the betel shop
Under my girl's house!
What are you doing? Think about me also!
What about me? Hey, brother!
Shut up!
Oh, come on, he's just my brother.
In the betel shop
Under my girl's house!
In the betel shop
Under my girl's house!
In the betel shop
Under my girl's house!
In the betel shop
Under my girl's house!
Hey, brother, you're crying.
What happened? What's the problem?
Tell me what's the problem?
-I bashed you up.
-When, where?
Fifteen years ago.
You were a little one.
When you tore up Maya's letter.
-What did I tear?
-Maya's letter.
No! I pushed you.
You hit the wall
and cracked your head.
No! I bashed you up!
Where's Maya these days?
Maya? Bloody Maya!
Maya must struggling
to ride the seas of life!
With her four kids and husband in tow
she's waiting for a train
at a seedy station!
Trains are never on time in India.
Write a play about it.
Look, I'm a pilot.
I have nothing to do with trains.
But still,
I'll say trains are a big problem.
Write a play.
Where's paper?
You tore it!
That's why I bashed you up.
So what?
You're older than me.
Look, if you're older,
then I'm younger than you.
When I'm younger than you,
you're my elder.
So what if you beat me up?
Remember, once you were angry with me
about Maya. You left me and went away.
I remember.
Don't leave me and go away.
Don't leave me!
I'm telling you the truth.
Not just one Maya,
I'll give up a thousand Mayas for you!
Brother, don't leave me!
Don't leave me!
Don't leave me!
Don't cry, brother!
You're my younger brother.
I'll never leave you!
I will never leave you!
I have cried out your name
in these valleys.
Ask these flowers if you don't believe me.
I was writing our names all day yesterday.
Loneliness and solitude are two words.
But together, they mean a lifetime.
In a moment, the quest is transformed
into a world of happiness.
Try it out. Amit.
Amit, who is mine no more.
Away from all doubts
and near the edges of faith
The heart is under the illusion
that she loves me
The dream I saw has become this affair
There are flowers
as far as the eyes can see
The dream I saw has become this affair
There are flowers
as far as the eyes can see
I have a complaint against your eyes
Even if there are flowers in the midst
There is distance
The dream I saw has become this affair
There are flowers
As far as the eyes can see
Your fragrance infuses my breath
This is the magic of your love
I can hear you in the winds
The color of love is in the breeze
My heart beats with your music
What do I say?
Hesitation seals my lips
The dream I saw has become this affair
Even if there are flowers in the midst
There is distance
My heart is in your hands
Let me hide you in my arms
I see you in my eyes
Our way is lit up
What if the light disappears?
Thousands of love lamps are lit
The dream I saw has become this affair
There are flowers
As far as the eyes can see
I have a complaint against your eyes
Even if there are flowers in the midst
There is distance
The dream I saw has become this affair
There are flowers
As far as the eyes can see
Turn on the hot water.
All right?
This is fun!
Amit, pick up that soap.
Pick up that soap.
I'm not picking up any soap.
Back in the hostel bathroom,
no one would pick up the soap!
And once when we were bathing naked,
Maya suddenly barged in.
And we covered our eyes in shock!
She wouldn't look at us for a week!
With you around,
I'm reliving my childhood.
Stay for some more time.
For you,
I'd stay back for the rest of my life.
But something urgent has come up.
I have to meet someone.
-The soap.
-You so-and-so!
What a strange pair.
-They're mad.
-That spirit is rare.
-I'm not anxious about you anymore.
-How come?
After what I've seen,
I'll say you're lucky.
They'll take good care of you.
Amit, won't you let us get married?
Why don't you find yourself a girl?
We could get married together
and even honeymoon together.
Excuse me!
I'll let you know the day
I get my hands on a girl.
Call me when you reach Bombay.
You should look for a suitable boy
for Chandni if you can.
All right.
It makes me sad when I think how
empty the house will become
-once she goes away.
-A daughter always leaves.
Some day she'll have to leave.
Pray that she gets a good boy
and that she likes him.
Look into her eyes when you talk.
She's fond of young men.
Just put in your best.
She'll take care of the rest.
-I'll keep trying.
-This play of yours
-is going to be a costly exercise.
-Let's not go into that again.
I've written it.
-Producing the play will cost a lot.
Lose this one and we end up begging
on the steps of the Jama Masjid.
-How tough is she?
-She's a tough cookie.
In Delhi, art, literature and culture
are born in her drawing room.
-Get it?
Here we are.
-Remember to look into her eyes.
Let's go.
So what have you brought for me
from Mauritius?
You could've sent your wife to buy it.
I'd pawn you off at the junk dealer's
and I wouldn't even ask for a receipt!
Let's talk later.
I have visitors. Yes, bye.
-Hello, Ms. Achala.
-My friend, Amit.
He's a playwright.
He has just written a new play.
From your looks, I think
you write only romantic plays.
Switch on the charm.
Well, till date...
-May I sit?
Till date, my pangs of joblessness
haunts my plays.
Now that I've met you, I might write
some about the pangs of passions.
Where did you get that voice of yours?
Where did you get this beauty from?
A question isn't answered with a question.
When a question answers itself,
it's no longer a question.
The pain... that's very much
a part of you?
Pleasure is fleeting.
You always remember the pain.
-You sound so lonely.
-To be lonely is one thing.
But to live with loneliness is another.
If you prefer, I'll let you be.
It makes no difference
whether you're here or not.
All right.
So when will you read me your play?
-Whenever you wish...
-When you're coming again?
You tell me.
People like me have nothing to do.
I have all the time in the world.
But I'm so busy!
I don't even time for myself.
-Heard that?
Come over with your drama
tomorrow evening.
Let's have a reading and a rehearsal.
-I'll call up a few artists.
Thank you very much.
I just asked you to hold her attention
while you spoke.
-But you pounced upon her.
-I did like you asked.
Don't you be too sure of yourself.
Had I not interrupted you,
-I would've had to return alone.
-It's done. That's what matters.
-Now it's your turn to deliver.
-Deliver what?
Chandni. The introduction.
Or else, I'll drown myself in the fountain
at Hauz Qaji!
With you height, even a river
isn't enough to drown you.
-I'll introduce you.
-Let's go.
Life isn't mere breathing to live.
Breathing is no more than a habit.
-You people bound by customs...
-People bound by customs...
Since you've stopped,
come to the center stage.
And not rage. Just a bit of intensity,
a bit of tension.
And hands out of your pocket.
I'll try once more.
Make sure Chandni is invited.
Life isn't mere breathing to live.
Breathing is no more than a habit.
A big zero. That is what you are.
Zero thou art, and zero becometh!
You cannot even think
what you want to think.
You cannot speak what you wish to.
You cannot live as you wish to live.
Scream you may, but you will never
hear the echoes of your screams.
Love, friendship, religion, patriotism,
these are hollow words.
They have nothing to do with reality.
But there's still time.
Listen to him carefully. He's calling you.
Do not be afraid.
Do not be ashamed of your own self.
Raise your voice.
Raise your voice
and say that you are free.
Wrest the right of refusal.
Say that you refuse to live this life
of shams, lies and frauds.
Throw open your windows.
Get out there! And scream!
Say we are free!
Let the voices ring! We are free!
We are free!
-This silence is eerie.
-Speech is born from silence .
Then I have something
to speak to you about.
Tell me just what I wish to hear.
Can it be expressed in words?
Who is it? I'm coming.
Please take this.
A bouquet and a letter. For you.
Either a girl or a lord.
Want me to read it out?
Go on.
That girl of yours! Got it?
Great! Give it to me.
"The darkness last night was lit up
by the sunset red.
"Was it the magic of the night alone?
"I want to find out. Shall we meet
at Lodhi Gardens tomorrow? Chandni."
Lovely! Made my life!
Come joy, come sorrow,
I'll take on the whole world!
I'm elated! I could even
hug you. Come on!
You've dropped your towel. The towel.
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The night is wet with dewdrops
Lips quiver
Her heartbeats are trying to say
What she cannot say
The breeze sings a soulful tune
The breeze sings a soulful tune
Time passes slowly
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky has fallen asleep
Into my arms you came shyly
As shyly as the moon treads
Softly out of the clouds
In this solitude, you and I
In this solitude, you and I
Even the earth is silent
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky has fallen asleep
What are you doing?
I love doing this.
Can I tell you something, Shekhar?
Every time you go up in the air,
my heart misses a beat.
Never put too much trust in life.
-You and your words.
-You'll remember my words, won't you?
Are you crying?
Don't. You're a soldier's future wife.
You're my life!
Didn't you just say
not to put too much trust in life?
Remember this.
I've told you this before
and I'll tell you once again.
Whether I'm on land or in air,
I love you very much!
-Yes, Papa?
-Put your mother on the line.
-Mother isn't at home.
-Should I take a message?
-Yes, my dear.
I'll give her the message
or is it something private?
No. It's about you.
I've fixed your marriage.
Hello? Can you hear me?
Yes, yes, Papa.
He's a very good boy.
Tell Mother that everything is fixed.
What is the matter, my child? Tell me.
-Papa, you won't get angry with me?
-What is it?
You should've told me earlier, dear.
You've put me in an awkward position.
May I...
All right. I won't take any decision
right now.
Your happiness is my happiness.
Brother, where have you been?
I've done you a favor.
-Hurry up, Amit.
-Don't rush me.
Just listen. I've found a girl.
Name the day,
and we'll enter wedlock together.
Look, Amit, I'm in a hurry. Bye.
He's in a real hurry.
Now that I have found your love,
I want nothing else out of life.
-When are we seeing each other?
I'll introduce you to my brother.
You know, our falling in love
has solved a big problem for my brother.
He's not married yet.
He wants us to get married together.
News has just come in
from the Firozpur sector.
Four enemy planes have been shot down.
The mission was led by
Squadron leader Shekhar Malhotra.
But there is sad news, too.
Squadron leader Shekhar Malhotra
staked his own life
and set a new example for bravery.
He has committed the ultimate sacrifice.
The last battle snatched away my father.
I did not cry.
My mother couldn't bear the sorrow.
I did not cry.
Because to me, my brother
was a mother, a father, my friend,
he was everything to me.
But today, Chandni, I'm devastated!
I've been orphaned.
Don't say that, Amit.
Don't say that.
I'm here. For you.
Amit, don't cry.
You are my younger brother,
I won't leave you.
I won't leave you.
Squadron leader Shekhar Malhotra.
How could this have happened?
You must have courage.
If you'll lose courage,
who will console us?
You have to take care of Shobha.
I'm broken. Defeated.
I can't face life anymore.
I can do no more.
Don't say that.
The dreams I had. The hopes I had.
Shobha would be married someday.
Who is to blame?
Whatever had to happen has happened.
You don't know, Son. You know nothing.
That which should never happened
has happened.
How do I tell you this?
But tell you I must.
Shobha... is carrying Shekhar's baby.
What will happen now, Amit?
What will happen to Shobha?
We all stand at a strange crossroads.
You. Me. Your mother.
We cannot console each other.
We cannot even wipe each other's tears.
My brother
has left me with a feeling of emptiness.
Your sorrow is much more than mine, but...
you have a whole life in front of you.
What I do with this life? Where do I go?
How will I live this life?
You'll have to live
even if you don't want to.
With whose support?
With what hope?
For whom?
Why think like that?
You are still young, beautiful.
You can still marry if you want.
A man named Shekhar,
I gave myself to him.
I was to marry him.
Even after his death
his name will remain with me.
Who will marry me?
Tell me. Give me an answer.
It is easy to say, it is easy to reason.
But to live through it, that's tough.
Very tough.
Who will marry me? Tell me.
Who will marry me?
Tell me. Will you marry me?
Shekhar's death has turned me to stone.
I came here to console someone.
In the process,
I have lost all my happiness.
I wish I could shower all the happiness
in the world on you.
But I have nothing
but painful memories with me.
Every time you feel your heartbeat,
think of me. I'm remembering you.
But for a while,
we were in love with each other.
Swear it by the love we shared.
Swear it by the promises we made,
and the memories we have,
that you will forget me.
Forget me, Chandni.
I am not unhappy
that you have deserted me.
But I'm sad
that I've lost all confidence in love.
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky has fallen asleep
All night I have gazed
at the moon through my tears
All night I have gazed
at the moon through my tears
Life is a vast lonely valley
I have suffered but little
You will live in sorrow all your life
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky has fallen asleep
Deep in the valleys of my memory
Echo the tales from my past
Deep in the valleys of my memory
Echo the tales from my past
My yesterday's lover is a stranger today
Today I still thirst for him
The sorrow lies deep within me
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky has fallen asleep
The blue sky
Has fallen asleep
The blue sky
Has fallen asleep
The blue sky
Has fallen asleep
How is my wife, Doctor?
But I couldn't save the child.
Can I see my wife?
Be brave, Shobha. You will have
to put up with this cruel fate.
I am not trying to console you.
In pain and in sorrow,
I will always be with you.
Have courage.
Have courage, Shobha. I am with you.
I think I'm quite late.
Well, what are you looking at?
Tell me, Chandni,
are you never angry or cross with me?
I don't understand.
In every other family,
they have such delightful fights.
Broken glass, flying vessels.
But here, it's a complete silence.
It's a good thing.
-Let's start from tomorrow.
-Why tomorrow? Let's begin today.
Right now.
Look, I'm home late.
And you don't even ask me why I'm so late.
There are all these pretty nurses
and interns in the hospital.
Any other wife would have
given me a thorough grilling.
Any more questions,
and I'll start with the crockery.
-By the way, why are you late?
-An emergency case came up.
What happened?
A couple had met with an accident.
The man wasn't hurt badly.
But his wife was serious.
Who were they?
Some playwright, Amit Malhotra.
The dream I saw has become this affair
The dream I saw has become this affair
Even if there are flowers in the midst
There is distance
Even if there are flowers in the midst
There is distance
My heart beats with your music
What do I say?
Shyness seals my lips
Thousands of love lamps are lit
Thousands of love lamps are lit
Even if there are flowers in the midst
There is distance
Even if there are flowers in the midst
There is distance
Wow. This is what made me fall
head over heels in love with you.
You wouldn't have met her.
Mr. Amit, my wife, Chandni.
She tends the wounds I heal.
Why are you standing there
with the bouquet?
Give it to the man you bought it for.
Thank you.
What you have done isn't right.
You know that roses are my weakness.
And you gave the roses away?
I've have the first right to them.
Right, Mr. Amit?
Won't you ask these poor flowers?
Even in their silence, the color
and the fragrance have a lot to say.
Wow. See how skillfully
he's diverted the topic?
Playing with words is his profession.
He can corner anyone with words.
Do you remember how the accident occurred?
A man's memories. They devastate a man.
It's difficult
to get rid of these memories.
Those memories must have something
to do with your heart.
Chandni, have you met his wife?
-No. I've just come in.
-Did I disturb you?
No flowers for Mrs. Amit? Very bad.
-May I borrow one flower from you?
-You may have the entire bouquet.
Not at all. Right now,
you have the right to this bouquet.
One flower is enough.
Give this to Mrs. Amit.
Come on. I'll see you later.
-Good morning, Mrs. Malhotra.
-Good morning, Doctor.
I want to introduce
my beautiful wife to you.
She was ready to die.
But I brought her back
for that Amit's sake.
What a pair!
What do they say?
Made for each other! Isn't it?
Now I shall leave you to criticize
your respective husbands.
He's very humorous.
And he's so warm and friendly.
You must've fallen for his charm.
I have no idea what makes him happy.
Your company maybe?
-What did he find so special in me?
-He'd know better.
But now that we have met,
I feel as if you're familiar.
But I feel a sense of surprise.
Is there the hand of destiny?
Even if there is, I shall accept destiny.
What do you mean?
At least, I'll get to know you better.
When can we go home?
Any time you wish.
But you must take care of your wife
for some time.
She should not undergo
any mental or physical exertion.
Send her to me once a week for check-ups.
I understand, Doctor.
I've been thinking for a while.
About what?
You have taken on the mantle
of your brother.
At first, I respected it.
Now I have started liking you.
I am glad to hear that. And also relieved.
Is your master at home?
Anyone else at home?
Who were you calling?
An old friend.
-You have many friends here.
-And no dearth of enemies either.
Is that a dig at me?
Time, Shobha, time.
Time, which we refer to as destiny
or at times as accident.
But all the time, it chases you.
Like your shadow.
Time is playing with me.
If so, why not exploit it?
What do you mean?
Let me play the dutiful husband.
Let me take you shopping today.
I don't mind shopping.
But I don't like the word "duty."
You don't like "duty?" Cut it out, then.
How about "debt?"
Let's pamper the lady.
Show us the best you have.
No, lighter shades. Like that white.
This will do.
That one down there. Yes.
That one.
May I see that one?
The black one.
I want to meet you.
Where? Tell me.
Please pack these for me.
-How are you now?
You left me with those saris.
I saw her and I thought I'd say hello.
I'm out to lighten my husband's wallet
today. I hope you'll do it too.
My packet, please.
I have to meet a friend at 5:00.
at the InterContinental.
I need to hurry. Excuse me.
Do drop in at our place sometime.
She reacted
as if we caught her shop-lifting.
Don't you think so?
And the way you charged at her?
Like a policeman.
Now come on and do your duty.
The bill.
-Finished shopping already?
What time is your appointment
with the doctor?
-At 5:00.
-I'll drop you there.
Aren't you coming with me?
I just remembered something.
I need to take care of it.
-What's the time now?
It's too early. What will I do there?
Chat with the doctor.
I have to be there by 5:00.
I might just make it after dropping you.
Amit! It's you!
Where were you so long?
Have you forgotten me completely?
I heard you've married. Didn't you
spare as much as a thought for me?
You should've invited me to the wedding.
I would've vetted your choice.
I guess she must be pretty.
I heard you had an accident.
Are you all right now?
Why aren't you looking at me?
By the way, congratulations!
Your play has been nominated
for the Academy Award.
I keep tabs on you.
I watch you on TV, I hear you on radio.
You're there in all the committees.
You're famous! Just like me.
I hear you've bought a big house.
But you haven't invited me for lunch.
-When are you inviting me?
-If you will excuse me.
-I'll see you some other time.
-I'm waiting for the invitation!
Hi, Chandni!
I'm seeing you after ages!
Where have you been?
Here for an appointment with your doctor?
Touch wood but the two of you
still look like two lovebirds.
You're looking great!
The sari suits you.
And what a lovely shade!
Where did you buy this one?
You look worried.
Are you seeing your doctor
or is it someone else?
I don't even see you at parties nowadays.
My husband keeps asking about you.
And I don't know a thing about you!
The day after tomorrow
the Lambas are throwing a party.
You'll come, won't you?
How about a coffee, Chandni?
Did a lot of shopping today?
Looks like your husband
is taking good care of you.
Look how many saris he has given me.
Mrs. Malhotra, we men are very cunning.
We make a gift or two every month or so
to remind our wives that we love them.
What a thing to say!
But I'll tell you that
your husband isn't that kind.
"Past the window of memory
I stare into my past
"The secrets of the moments
When I was breathless
"When love blossomed
Those unspoken songs of love
"Then I walked alone a deserted street
A tale of broken promises
"Who can bear to remember?
Who can bear to remember?"
Amit, I never knew you were so romantic.
You hide such feelings in your heart?
Don't believe all that.
It's only academic.
What a thing to say. Has literature
nothing to do with life?
I wrote plays to get over
the emptiness of my life.
You don't like being complimented by me?
Is it 'cause I'm your wife?
Had it come from another woman,
you would've appreciated the compliment.
Did you have to say that?
"On silent nights
That are filled with dreams
"She is drenched in rain
Her wet veil has slipped
"Her eyes cased in closed lids
Dart and pulsate
"A loving kiss
Is planted on her parted lips
"Who can bear to remember?
Who can bear to remember?"
Hello. Dr. Anand speaking
I'm Amit, your patient.
Do you remember me?
Yes. Mr. Amit.
-How are you?
-I'm fine.
What can I do for you?
I wanted to invite you for lunch today.
One minute. Chandni?
Where do we meet?
The InterContinental. At 1:00.
You're alone?
Were you expecting anyone with me?
-I mean, your wife.
-Did you invite her?
I invited you.
You told me on phone
to join you for lunch. So here I am.
Please be seated.
So what will you have?
-Whatever you choose.
-You'll be delighted.
The chef is a friend of mine.
He'll treat us really well.
I had operated on him once.
Since then he's been my fan.
You could've invited her on my behalf.
-Who are you talking about?
-How are you?
-I'm okay, sir.
All my favorite dishes please.
Mr. Amit should be pleased.
Tell me,
doesn't it sound as if
I'm the host and you're my guest?
Just what I feel.
Like you're the host and I'm your guest.
But you get to foot the bill.
Chandni doesn't know what she's missing.
-Where is she?
-Now where was she supposed to go?
Yes, some flower show.
-What's the name of the third entry?
-"My love."
-I want to talk to you.
-The fourth entry is "We."
-Where can we meet?
-Fifth is "An Evening of Wait."
Please, Chandni.
Sixth is "Love story."
-Tomorrow. Same time. Same place.
-I can't come.
Seventh, "Dare Devil."
I'll wait for you.
Eight, "Eternal Bliss."
You can't blame me, Amit.
I got your letter.
With that one letter,
with that piece of paper,
you changed my whole life.
You put an end to the relationship.
You destroyed all the sentiments.
You broke all bonds.
And you asked me to live. Endure life.
The torture of being alive,
of living this life!
I don't think you did anything wrong.
But it wasn't a good thing either.
I've no answer. No excuses.
The sorrow, the wound
that I have inflicted on you...
I have no excuses for that.
Call it fate, call it a bad time,
call it an accident,
but it is the truth.
My wife was my brother's fiance.
She was pregnant with his child.
I took on the responsibility
from a sense of duty.
I saw my dreams being shattered.
But I could do nothing.
I gave you up, but all my life
I have waited for you.
At every step, I hoped I would see you,
hopeless as it was.
I loved you despite myself.
I have desired you so much
that I have no desire left
for anyone else.
Soft words do not heal the pain.
They lessen it, though.
Why did all this happen?
Why did it have to happen?
Thanks. Let it be.
Shall I make you a drink?
All that is gone.
Gone with my brother.
You aren't doing justice
to your brother's memory.
-What do you mean?
-Ever since you married me
you're so subdued, so depressed.
And he used to be so lively.
Can you ever forget him, Shobha?
I don't need to.
He's my past. A sweet memory.
You are my life.
He gave me his love.
You have protected me.
He gave me a dream.
You turned it into a reality.
Why do you forget that I am a woman?
For me, my husband
is cast in the image of God.
An article of faith.
I've never seen you like this.
Give me your love
and I'll make your sorrows mine.
Are you happy?
Are you happy?
Yes, I'm happy too.
It's too late now, Amit.
Don't rake up the past.
You have a wife. I have a husband.
Will you have two families destroyed?
Let's call this a compromise
and be happy with it.
Promise me you'll never see me again.
Chumbu! Girdhari!
Parayelal! Gowardhan Das!
You're not going to change, eh?
Hello, Sister-in-law! I'm Vidyarthi.
All right, you're a big shot now.
You're rich. You're famous.
But that doesn't mean
you ignore your friends.
Got married and didn't even invite me?
Maybe I couldn't have given a gift.
But I'd surely have brought flowers.
I won't sit. Even if get I tired standing.
Besides there isn't an extra chair.
My compliments to the lady.
But you...
I know you're a very famous man now.
But you shouldn't forget
your old friends.
I want that wedding treat.
I'm coming home for dinner.
Remind him, Sister-in-law, I'll come.
Listen, Vidyarthi...
-Chandni, listen to me...
-What the heck?
Bitch! Can't you see? Let go!
You don't even know how to talk to ladies!
Amit! What are you doing?
This is becoming a scene!
How did you get hurt?
It's just a scratch.
That's even worse.
An unseen wound, but it still hurts.
What's with the poetry?
I'm a writer's wife after all.
-You haven't told me yet.
-How did you get hurt?
-I fell down.
Falling down isn't good for a married man.
Where are you, brother?
Look, there's something important.
You can't avoid me anymore.
Where's sister-in-law?
Meet my wife. Shobha.
My friend, Vidyarthi.
A guru of many acolytes.
We're colleagues.
So he has the right
to shoot his mouth off.
He's a playwright after all.
And the plays he puts up!
Mend your ways now.
Otherwise when the truth comes out...
you may have to pay a high price.
That is not something I worry about.
Besides, what do I have to lose?
No smoke without fire.
I hope you seen the fire soon enough.
-Right, Sister-in-law?
-I don't understand
-what you're talking about.
-But you're part of it already.
How come?
That's because...
Wait. How about some dinner?
He's nervous that I'll expose him!
Look, my friend,
I'm street smart, you know?
In an encounter with me, you'll lose.
-Vidyarthi, you're crossing the limit.
-Are you upset?
-Why don't you let him speak?
-He can go on and on all night.
He carries all the gossip
of the world in his head.
I heard some of it today.
Has he ever taken you
to the Oberoi for dinner?
Lovely food!
God! Actually I forgot
the important thing.
Ever since you married him,
his luck has changed.
He's getting a gold medal
from the All India Drama Association.
I came to invite you.
You keep that medal.
Give me the gold. Okay?
I can't come.
For my sake.
You're my inspiration, my hope,
my devotion, my imagination.
Are you talking about me
or are those names of other girls?
-Don't laugh it off.
-My husband is away in Bombay.
Then you can come.
All right, Amit. I'll come.
How did you know that I want to wear this?
I know. And I'm wearing that.
Are you coming too?
Look, Shobha, I'm not stopping you.
These things will keep happening.
And you aren't feeling well.
Maybe it's better if you don't come.
-Is there any other reason?
-Don't expect me to spell it out.
That place is going to be filled
with beautiful girls.
How can I flirt with them
right in front of you?
What if I let you flirt?
Will you take me then?
You don't really mean that.
-Then promise me something.
When you like a girl,
you'll tell me her name.
-What will you do to her?
-Leave that to me.
Ladies and gentlemen,
I'm grateful to you
for the respect and the adulation
you have given me.
What can I tell you about myself?
One day, when I began my life here,
my heart was racing.
Today, you are honoring me
in this very place.
My heart is racing once again.
One needs support during
the journey of life.
Thank you for being with me.
What else can I say?
Let me recite a few lines
from my new play.
So what if a dream
is shattered by accident?
Time cannot change emotions.
Distances cannot suppress sentiments.
Love is a bond of hearts.
Love is a bond of hearts.
A bond that knows no bounds.
Though you are the moon
of someone else's nights,
but you are present
in every facet of my life.
You light up my dreams, my hopes.
Whatever path I tread leads to you.
You didn't even mention me.
And you say I'm your inspiration?
Your muse, your devotion, your hope.
I might not have mentioned you.
But I spoke about you.
Were you afraid?
Yes, I was afraid.
Had I mentioned your name,
I would've started a raging fire.
Are you scared of the fire
you have started?
I started the fire to light up my heart.
I'm afraid that people
will watch the drama.
-Shall I show you something?
The ticket to your play.
I have preserved this ticket.
On some pretext or the other,
I look at it every day.
In those few meetings,
the way you looked at me,
whatever you told me,
that is what I believe in more.
The years, the months,
the days afterwards,
have been empty. Without meaning.
Are you surprised? To see me?
-I am your husband.
You were supposed to come
and pick me from the airport.
I didn't see you there. I nearly died.
What's this new affair you've started?
What affair?
You seem to have developed
a new love these days.
You seem lost. You look surprised
whenever I speak.
But I am a very clever guy.
What are you talking about?
I know every move of yours.
Where you go, whom you meet.
After all, I have to keep an eye on you.
I don't understand.
-You didn't tell me.
-Want me to tell you?
-What were you doing on TV today?
-On TV?
I saw you.
I swear, you were looking lovely.
Mr. Amit was insistent.
And you weren't here.
So I went over to please him.
-How about pleasing me at times?
Didn't understand? I'll explain.
Between the desire in your eyes
and the craving on my lips,
the distance is hard to bridge.
The girl of my dreams!
My solitude and I
often talk to each other.
What would it be like if you were here?
You'd say this, you'd say that.
This would shock you.
That would make you laugh.
If only you were here, it would like this,
it would be like that.
My solitude and I
often talk to each other.
Where have we come?
After taking the journey together?
In your arms, my love
My body and my heart melt
In your arms, my love
My body and my heart melt
Where have we come?
After taking the journey together?
Is it the night?
Or is it the shadow of your tresses?
Is it moonlight?
Or do your eyes light up my night?
Is this the moon?
Or the bracelet on your arm?
The stars? Or the wonder of your scarf?
Was that a waft of breeze?
Or a waft of your fragrance?
Was that the swish of dry leaves?
Or was it your sigh?
I think this and am forever sad.
But I know that you are not with me.
Nowhere near me.
But my heart says you are here.
Somewhere here.
You're the body
I am the shadow
Where can I go without you?
O one who loves me
I am wherever you are
We had to meet, my love
No matter where we walked
We had to meet, my love
No matter where we walked
Where have we come?
After taking the journey together?
My breath
Is fragrant like sandalwood
Your love is the moonlight
Shining on my heart
The day becomes softer
As the day ends
The day becomes softer
As the day ends
Where have we come?
After taking the journey together?
Compulsions exist on both sides.
There are lonely night on both ends.
I have so much to say,
but to whom can I speak?
How long should we suffer in silence?
Break the barriers, my heart says.
Bring down the walls that part us.
Why burn our hearts? Let's tell the world:
Yes! We're in love!
It's a question of life and death!
My boy!
Don't be afraid.
He'll be fine. We'll take him to a doctor.
Hold on! This is a police case.
No need to make a police case.
I'll take care of the kid.
Take care, will you?
You car drivers don't treat
pedestrians as humans beings!
I admit that it was my mistake.
Cause an accident and then plead guilty.
How convenient!
-Take down the registration number.
-Call the police.
Police? This is silly!
Let's take the kid to a doctor first.
Listen to this! We're silly!
Had I been strong enough
I would've slapped some sense into you.
Step aside. Don't stand here.
Vacate this place.
-What happened?
-A kid. He's got hurt.
-Who was driving the car?
-I was driving.
-Your wife?
Don't worry. Everything will be all right.
Follow me in your car.
To the police station.
Let's go.
You sit. I'll drive.
Hush up this case. Somehow.
Or else I'll die!
If he comes to know,
I'll lose all respect.
I understand. Be brave.
An accident has taken place.
Can you come over?
-I'm coming.
-Thank you.
-I have a request.
-Can you dismiss this case?
-The reason?
My wife is worried
and I feel guilty about this.
What has that to do with the law?
The kid has minor injuries.
We'll take the responsibility.
You're wasting my time.
If this case gets registered,
we will be maligned.
You should've thought about that
before causing the accident.
No one commits an accident on purpose.
Please let me get on with my job.
You are taking this way too seriously.
I could do worse.
I could arrest you and your wife.
But you can't hang us!
You're an arrogant
and egoistical policeman!
And you're an irresponsible
and a careless citizen.
No use begging and arguing.
One more word
and you'll be in the lock-up.
An honest man fears nothing.
But he does fear for his reputation.
Call Dr. Anand.
I'm already here.
I'm sorry, Doctor.
The kid was slightly hurt.
They paid the kid's parents.
They parted on good terms.
Who were they?
-Who did he say he was?
-Amit Malhotra. Some writer.
Mr. Amit. I know him well.
-His wife was driving the car.
-Whatever happened is for the best.
-I'll leave now.
-Thank you, Doctor.
Greetings, Mother.
-When did you come?
-This morning.
Where have you been? Shobha was worried.
I was in a mess. Come on.
Tell me, do you get into messes
or do messes get you?
Who gets whom, I can't say.
But what fun is life without a few snags?
You know the circumstances
in which Shobha got married.
-So we couldn't invite anyone.
-I invited Shobha's cousin for lunch.
Hello, Aunt!
-May I come in?
-You're in already.
Welcome, Kulbhushan.
I was just telling Amit about you.
Amit, this is Kulbhushan.
He's a policeman.
He was in Assam during the wedding.
My sister's son. But I brought him up.
He is very close to Shobha...
-Coming, Shobha.
Sit, talk. I'll be back soon.
Perhaps we have already met.
You don't remember?
Your memory is weak.
Refreshing my memory
won't do you any good.
Please don't forget that you're my guest
at this moment.
-And you are my wife's brother.
-Forget the formalities.
As a brother, I have every right
to safeguard my sister's interests.
Does she need your help today?
Where were you when she needed you?
And today you want to be paid
for your help?
You're a lousy man!
Don't threaten me.
I'm arrogant. And I'm egoistic.
If anyone tries to hurt my sister Shobha,
I'll never forgive him.
Not only arrogant and egoistic.
You are also foolish. And indecorous.
I'll excuse you because
you're my guest. Otherwise...
My aunt praises you a lot.
She worships you like a god.
Don't listen to your aunt.
I'm human. I'm not a God.
Trust your eyes. And trust your ears.
We're very obliged to you.
That's why I'm quiet.
But I wonder for how long
I can stay silent.
I'm a stranger in this city.
Will you please help me?
The entire police force
is at your beck and call.
This is a delicate matter.
It involves my cousin's husband.
-Her husband...
Does a policeman unnerve you?
Don't worry, he has come to meet me.
Not to arrest me.
I think she misunderstood me.
Won't you introduce us?
My life, my desire,
my spring, my blossom and so on.
-I don't understand.
-I'll tell you.
I'm not having an affair with her.
Nor am I flirting with her.
I've married her. She's my wife.
I didn't understand your "Oh."
Anyway, about your cousin
and her husband...
Doctor, I think I'm forgetting something.
Look, everyone is waiting for us.
We're late. Aren't you coming?
Sure, sweetheart. Anything you say.
If you want a happy married life,
get henpecked.
Excuse me for today.
Let's talk some other day.
-Come on now!
-I'll get the car keys.
Tell me something. How do you like
being married to an artist?
Their types should never marry.
They act like strangers.
And when they act like a stranger,
who knows if they are yours?
They live for the moment.
That's life with them.
What's your opinion?
I've just been branded.
-I'm paying for it.
-How? By making friends with us?
-Or by marrying Shobha?
-What nonsense!
I saw you somewhere recently.
Now where did I see you?
Had a man said this, I would've
thought he was flirting with my wife.
I remember. On TV.
-Why not pay off Amit's debts?
-My debt?
-The lunch that day.
-Did he buy you lunch?
Maybe he wanted to treat you.
But he treated me.
I guess I have the knack of saying
the wrong thing at the wrong time.
You were talking about debt.
I was thinking this is
your first spring festival with me.
Why not invite Amit and Shobha for lunch?
Mr. Amit?
Just lunch? Or the spring festival?
This is my wife's first spring festival.
And with you around,
the colors will come to life!
Strange custom. Men dance openly
with other men's wives.
-A penny for your thoughts?
-Is this a habit with you?
-I beg your pardon?
Getting lost, losing yourself.
What do you think?
I think you're hiding a secret.
-You want to say it. But you can't.
Maybe that's why you had that car crash.
Car crash? When?
You forgot about it?
But I don't know how to drive.
Funny! The day before yesterday,
you and Mr. Amit...
Maybe I got it wrong.
Look, two minutes with you
and I've lost my memory!
I remember!
The day before yesterday, isn't it?
-The day before yesterday. Perhaps.
-I'm so forgetful.
He was teaching me how to drive.
I lost control.
And I crashed the car.
You're very nice.
You're a lovely wife.
Anyone would be proud of you.
Amit is indeed lucky.
I wouldn't know that.
But, yes, I'm very lucky.
To have Amit as a husband.
May I pour colors on you
during the spring festival?
You're asking for permission?
Just asking.
You have the right to do it.
Your first
spring festival. Congratulations!
The colors look lovely on you.
Reminds of my first love.
You mean the doctor, right?
I only married him.
And love?
He was married
before we could get married.
Yes. In our country,
the husband is never the lover.
-The one you loved, is she married?
-She was forced to.
You've heard my whole story.
Now tell me your story.
I'm happy with what God has given me.
One minute.
It's the spring festival!
The colors rain
-Upon the veiled maiden
-It's the spring festival!
Who drenched you in these colors?
These delightful colors
The colors rain
My veiled maiden
The colors are raining on you
Maiden! The colors are raining on you
My veiled maiden
The colors are raining on you
Maiden! The colors
are raining on you
My veiled maiden,
The colors are raining on you
Serve him on a golden platter
Serve him on a golden platter
On a golden platter
Serve him on a golden platter
Her lover has it while

My veiled maiden,
The colors are raining on you
Maiden! The colors

Clove and cardamom
Clove and cardamom, buddy
Yes, clove and cardamom
Stuff the betel leaf

My veiled maiden
Serve him on a golden platter
-You were ecstatic.
-Still am!
The opiate the doctor served was potent.
I hope I didn't create a scene.
You should give me a lecture
about the limits of decency.
That tells me, I must've
slipped up somewhere.
Anyway, what's done is done.
It was the spring festival.
I got carried away.
Listen to this.
The heart lives near the head
and that's just as well.
But sometimes, it's better not to think.
The dye isn't washing off.
Some colors stay on.
I hope Amit didn't mix
anything in the colors.
Yes. Now my suspicions are confirmed.
Everyone has a past. You may have one too.
Even if you have a past, I won't ask you.
Why won't you?
You have every right to ask.
I'm not one of those husbands.
I consider my wife a human being.
Not a slave.
Why did you have to remind me
about that today?
Today, I remembered a part of my past
that I haven't told you about.
The past is best preserved in memories.
Mix the past with the present,
and you're likely to ruin your life.
And someone else's life too.
You have no right to interfere.
Look, I'm your cousin.
I won't see your home being ruined.
If you can't, get yourself
transferred out of here.
I'm not weak. Don't patronize me.
I can take my own decisions.
I don't wish to hear anything about him.
So what? What's my crime?
Wow. Listen to yourself.
You play Romeo,
and then you ask me what's my crime?
Vidyarthi, you're taking advantage
of our friendship.
You don't like what I say?
The truth is always bitter.
I've been in love too.
But after I found out that she's married,
I walked away from her life.
That's an expression of love too.
If you've had your say, may I leave?
Have you heard fairy tales
in your childhood?
Which one?
About the prince, the princess
and the magical fairy.
When fantasy is pitted against reality,
it is reality that prevails.
But even then,
fantasy is very much a part of life.
One needs fantasies.
What you want to say is something else.
No. It's the same old story.
One day, there comes a fairy.
She waves her magic wand,
and takes the prince away with her.
Which leaves the poor princess
in tears, right?
What I didn't like was
the princess' tragedy.
This story should be rewritten.
The princess shouldn't be
helpless and weak.
What should she do?
She should fight for her rights.
And you?
Where do you figure in the story?
In the story, I am the king.
At nights, I go around in disguise
to see how my subjects are faring.
I am the giver of justice.
I have many responsibilities.
To the kingdom, the dynasty,
duty, tradition.
That tradition I am serving.
The king is mighty.
He can save his kingdom.
Whenever he wants.
I'm leaving.
I'll remember what you told me.
-What do you want?
-Is that relevant?
Leave him.
It isn't within my power.
How can I do something
that is beyond my power?
Amit is my husband.
He's my love.
I'm fated to love him.
You'll lose this game.
I'm not playing games.
Why are you ruining my home?
I'm ruining my home too.
If you think you can snatch him
away from me, you're mistaken.
-Are you confident?
-Yes. I am confident.
Then live with your confidence.
Let me live with my love.
If this is war between love and faith,
I accept it.
I'll call you as soon as I reach Bombay.
I forgot to pay the telephone bill.
Pay it tomorrow.
The gardener's wife is unwell.
Give him money if he asks.
Attend to my letters also.
Call me up if there's any urgent letter.
I'll be staying at the Taj.
I've signed a few checks.
If you need money,
you can draw it from the bank.
You haven't asked me when I'm returning.
When are you returning?
In three or four days.
I don't wish to leave you.
I hope I'll find you waiting here for me
when I come back.
Last time, when you didn't come...
Is this is right? Or is this wrong?
Tell me.
Why don't you answer me?
I can't live like this.
Torn between him and us!
How long will I go on cheating him?
How long will I go on cheating myself?
Who told you to live a lie?
-Are you saying this?
-Yes. Me.
Do you have the courage
to live the life you want?
Stop wallowing in self-pity.
That's what I'm telling you.
Keep the pity for somebody else.
Rid yourself of this guilty conscience.
This self-recrimination.
Easy for you to say. You're a man.
You aren't going to be tainted.
This man-woman argument is outdated.
-You have to make a decision today.
-What decision?
Can you break your ties?
You don't want to live
a torn up life, right?
I'm sick and tired of your fears
and your apprehensions!
Even when you're with me,
you aren't close to me.
When you're alone, you're disturbed.
If you haven't the guts, the courage,
it's your problem.
-I've decided.
We can't live like this. Torn.
We have every right
to lead our life, Chandni.
I can't live without you.
Your decision is mine.
Going somewhere?
When will you return?
I can't say.
I want to tell you something.
Great timing, Shobha.
For days, I've been thinking
that avoiding this won't solve anything.
-Avoiding what?
-About you and me. Sit down.
Look, Shobha,
at some point in life,
every relationship loses its warmth.
A relationship which is a mere
understanding between two people
ceases to be a relationship.
It becomes bondage.
Your doubt is not baseless.
I love Chandni.
I love Chandni.
Shobha, I don't want to blame you
for anything.
If I have a past,
a life that I once lived,
will you say I am at fault?
After I married you, I never looked back.
I forced myself to forget my past.
I didn't turn to her.
I told myself that I'd never see her.
She was gone far, far away.
But destiny placed me
right in front of her.
Tell me, how do I evade destiny?
Where will I run?
I have no other regrets.
No grievances. No grudges.
If I have one regret, one remorse,
if there is anything I rue,
it is the fact that...
I have... hurt you.
You wanted to tell me something?
I'm thinking.
I don't know if I will be able to say it.
Where do I go from here?
My life depends on a relationship
that you call a bondage.
For me it is support,
love, duty, religion, faith.
You've done your duty
towards your brother.
So you came into my life.
That's how I became your wife.
I appreciate the sacrifice you have made.
I appreciate the way you took care of me.
You gave me shelter.
You fulfilled your duty.
And slowly, I started seeing you as mine.
I fell in love with you.
I used to love someone else too.
But now...
Now I am in love with you.
He was. You are.
Now this is the truth.
Will you call this a lie?
How will you leave me?
Why did you let him leave?
What right did I have to stop him?
You are his wife.
In name only.
Yes, Mother. He pitted me. And married me.
This is what come out of it.
As we both can see.
Let him come back to me if he wishes.
That's the way I want it.
Not under some flimsy pretext
or a compromise.
What if he doesn't wish to?
I don't wish to deprive him of his right.
What you try to destroy
I will not, my love
What you try to destroy
I will not, my love
If I stop loving you
Who else will I love?
What you try to destroy
I will not, my love
I will not, my love
You are the pearl
I am the string that holds the pearl
You are the pearl
I am the string that holds the pearl
You are the gold
You are the gold
I am the sheen on the gold
What you try to destroy
I will not, my love
I will not, my love
Meera says
The Lord dwells in Brij
Meera says
The Lord dwells in Brij
You're my lord
I'm your slave
What you try to destroy
I will not, my love
I will not, my love
Do you have any complaints
against your wife?
You don't like her habits?
Or maybe she doesn't
take care of you and your house properly?
No, Gurdip.
Then why are you leaving
such a good woman?
Look, I'm your friend. Not your servant.
You married her of your own will.
No one forced you into the marriage.
You went beyond being just humane.
You towered above men.
You sacrificed your happiness and our love
to give her a new life.
-You became a god, and now...
-Now I want to become human.
You cannot. You can go from being
human to god,
but if you try to climb down,
you will fall from grace.
Can man not live for himself?
For his little wishes?
Will the world not let
a man live his own life?
Why not?
Just go away to a forest
and do what you want.
Otherwise, you'll be ridiculed.
Are you brave enough to face that?
Let's be frank. You both hate seeing
Chandni with me.
Daddy is celebrating
the golden jubilee of his wedding today.
The house will be filled
with guests and relatives.
Everyone knows you and Chandni.
Now don't get me wrong.
You know how the world
makes mountains out of molehills.
We won't give you a bad name.
Don't worry, we won't be together.
I'll come as your friend
and Chandni as Simran's friend.
I hope you have no objections.
See you then.
Amit, are you thinking what I am thinking?
I'm thinking how narrow minded
our society is.
Has that caused you
to reconsider your decision?
No one gets everything out of life.
There's always a sense of deprivation.
-Dr. Anand here.
-Yes, sir.
-Get Madam on the line.
-She's not at home.
-Not at home? Where has she gone?
-Don't know, sir.
When she comes, tell her that
I'm coming by the 8:00 flight.
-Isn't your husband here?
-No, he's gone to Bombay.
Any children yet?
Are you the family-planning type?
Take my advice.
A woman is complete only after
she attains motherhood.
Otherwise, she's incomplete.
Next time, come here
with your husband and your child.
You understand me?
Dr. Anand's plane crashed.
What happened?
-Dr. Anand's plane crashed.
Wait here.
Don't allow anyone inside.
-Any chance of survivors?
-None so far.
Have all the bodies been taken out?
We haven't been able to control
the fire yet.
Where are you going? It's dangerous there.
Don't go there! It's dangerous!
It's my duty. Anand might be alive.
No! You can't leave me!
I don't have anyone else in this world!
Nothing will happen to me.
This is my chance at atonement
Please! For the sake of your child!
If anything happens to you, I'll be lost.
No Amit will ever come
to support me, to help me.
You'll get your Amit back. Take care.
That's the rear fuselage.
People might be trapped inside.
-Why don't you go in then?
-It'll explode any moment.
Who are you? Go away!
Stop! It's dangerous!
Where's my wife?
She's unconscious
and in a serious condition.
Kulbhushan took her home in an ambulance.
All of you, go outside.
She's my wife. I'm responsible for her.
I'm back, Shobha.
I've broken all the ties of my past,
of my love, of compromises.
I was sure you'd come.
From now on, just remember one thing.
You are my wife.
I am your husband.
This is the truth.
The rest are lies. All lies.
I wish I could sprinkle stardust
on your head
I wish I could make
a flower blossom on your lips
For your sake
I will give up the whole world
Our garden will be fragrant
with the blossom of our love
In your arms I find solace
With joys will be filled
this world of ours
A flower will blossom in our garden
