These things happen.

Do you want to see

how many medals I have?

I stood third in my university!

But now this Chatterjee

is going to fail me!

I'm sure all the professors will

be laughing at me in the staffroom!


In a couple of years you'll

be earning four times their salary.

And they'll be giving the same

lecture to the next batch!

Then you can smile.


I've never been so insulted!

Then don't raise

your hand in class.

If you want...

I can help you with economics.

I'm just asking;

this isn't the 11th proposal.

I was a topper in Eco...

Sorry but you're an engineer.

How can you help me?




Okay, done.

8 0' clock? My room.

And by the way...

the score is now 22.

Wow, you're taking

this really seriously!


My mother.

She's a singer!

Tried to get me to sing, too...

That's why I ran

away and came here!

What's your story?

I don't have a story.

Are you an orphan?


Well then,

what does your dad do?

Shall we start?

If you don't want to tell me,

just say so.


Retired Army Officer.


Do you want to fail?

Why are you so grumpy?


What does he have that I don't?

Luck, bro. Luck!

2 minutes...

Need to make a call.

Kavita, phone!






How many times have I told you?

Stay by the phone after 10!

It's 11! And anyway...

Shipra told me cell phone

vibrations cause hean attacks!

How hard is it

to say hello to him?

You're too stubborn.

So are you.

Forget it.

How are you?

I'm fine...

Have they started serving

chicken there?!

No! When we want non-veg,

we go out and eat.

I still don't understand...

Why did you leave

home and become vegetarian?!

Listen! Have you

made any friends there?






never mind.
