Well done, well done!


your real struggle begins now.

Have some sweets, shambhu kaka.

To celebrate whose success?

Their success.

They've got into the engineering stream.


Whoever studies here

is bound to succeed anywhere.

So, shall we enroll you too?

Come on, what'll i do here?

But, you know my daughter muniya...

she is in the tenth grade.

As soon as she clears that...

i'll plonk her in front of guruji.

She will work hard, you'll see...

mark my words, she will become...

how d'you say it... a collector!

Dad, you aren't allowed.

Surely, just one...

ever since the results were declared last week,

you've been gorging on sweets.

Now no more.

You're becoming exactly

like your mother, you know that?

You said something?

Last one!

Suppose, a+b+c+d by 2 is greater

than or equal to under root a+b...


did you send your papers to cornell?

Yes. But i won't be going.

You will have to, junior professor.

Because, you see,

i am going to follow you there.

Quit dreaming. I'm not going.

Alright, don't go to cornell.

But, surely you can come for a movie.


You're gawking like

i tried to molest you.

When you ruffle your wet hair

and shower droplets all around

it feels so good

when you part your lips

and softly whisper sweet nothings

it feels so good

don't float around like a fragrance,

just get to the point.

Look into my eyes and say it

don't make me wander in dreams

in short, just say it

just get to the point

just get to the point

it's another feeling

when you are around

when you turn around

and smile in your endearing style

it feels so good

don't play around with words,

don't fool me with your act

take my hand in yours,

come out with those three little words

in short, just say it
