Love marriage.

Is this a year old?

No, two years.

Don't you have a latest one?

No.. Arnab didn't like

to get his pictures taken.

Isn't it enough that we

ran away and got married?

Now we have to get a

picture taken as well.

Come here. Otherwise what's

the proof that you married me?

It was the day we got married..

..so I forced him to

get our picture taken.

I see.

What does your husband do?

We both were software engineers.

Firewall experts.


We make programs to save

computers from virus attacks.

Like, the police..

protects the public. Right?

Get this done quickly.

Arnab was supposed to come to London

after the assignment, but he didn't.

He suddenly vanished.


Yes, I mean no messages, no calls.

And Arnab isn't like that.

Where was he staying here?

Mona Lisa, 172A

- Sarat Bose Road.

The place where he worked name?

National Data Center.


But they said that Arnab never

came there for any assignment.

He did, I know.

We talked every day.

He would call me a thousand

times in a day and I would scold him.

So that he doesn't spend his

entire earning on the phone bill.

But I don't know why they are lying.

The case is slightly complicated.

I will do my best. It will be done.

It will take some time.

I will get it done.

Madam, you will need to sign this.

Sign, sign.

Why are you after that thing?

Leave it.

May I help?


Oh yes, you are a computer person..

Take a look.

What a pain..

You just needed to clear some memory.

You won't face any problem now.

Are you satisfied now?

Now, madam, you just need to

sign and you're free to go.

What happened, madam?

Sit, sit.

Would you like some water?

Will you call a taxi for me, please?

Why, Taxi? Rana will drop you.

Rana, go drop her. Go.


How much further?
