But people stay up late...

Criminals, insomniacs,|watchmen and idiots!

Have yourfun at my expense.

Speaking of expenses...|Can I...

See you guys.|Got a cigarette?


It's my Dad's money.|He's got lots of it...

Stop this Western music,|this obscenity!

How many times do|I have to make you understand this!

Polluting the culture of this country...

Leave this place right now.|LEAVE!

Can't you understand, idiot!

This is your last warning...

...from now on, nobody plays|any Western music out here.

No lewd dancing!

Or I'll break your legs.

Who are you to warn us?|If you don't like it, don't come here.

You bloody Pakistani!

Let's finish it.

Last warning! Got it?

Long live India!

You touch Aslam and|see what I do to you...

...even your mother won't recognize you.

Ever seen a baboons arse? Yours will|be as red after I've finished with you.

Sir, I'm sure we can work it out.

Keep this...

Anyone hungry? I'm famished.

How're you?

Hey honey! Come here you...

If something happened to you,|I'd have killed you.

Is this any way to greet your boyfriend?

How're you?

Hurry guys, I'm famished.

You won't get any food here.

Stay away!

...I carried you in my stomach|for nine months...

...and washed your bum foryears.

Get lost!

Does anyone botherto check|if Mitro is alive or dead?

What's up?

You're drunk again.

No. No. No.

First give us food ma,|and then yell at us all night.

None of you have eaten?

How will you bear children?
