'This is Baabulaal.'

'Baabulaal Dattatrey Vakhariya.'

'He's 75...'

'Both, physically and mentally'.

'One fine day, last year,

Baabulaal decided that...'

'...if he spends more than

15 minutes in the shower...'

'...he catches a cold.'

'Ever since...'

'...he sets an alarm for 14 minutes

before taking a shower.'

''Normally Baabulaal

never forgets anything...'

'...but he always takes precautions.'

'In fact, he believes at his age

one should take double precaution.'

'His blood pressure has to be perfect.'

'120 and 80.'


Dr. Mehta's clinic?

Your appointment is fixed,

as usual, uncle.

From Monday to Saturday, 9:45 am.

Thank you.

'In short...Baabu is an old man.'

'You know who an old man is, right?'

'A man who is afraid

of living and scared of dying.'

'Meet Baabu's father now.'

'Yes... his father is alive too.'

'Age; 102.'

'Mental age; 26.'

'A perfect model for health tonics.'

'Dattatrey Jagjeevan Vakhaariyaa.'

Ohhh... Uncle!!

You want to die or what?

The world knows... i never die.

Come on now,

can't say no to a senior citizen like me.

What are you bringing in?

It's a world record, son

World record.

What a man.

Where to?

Where are you from?

- Huh?

Where are you from? Originally?

Originally from Jaunpur.

Then head towards Jaunpur.


I mean... start talking about Jaunpur.

Like some pond

where you learnt how to swim.

Or a famous confectioner...

...or even a favorite dish

you relished.

Keep talking... I'll listen.

That's how I've seen most of India.

Actually, this is how he sees the world,

Totally opposite

to his son's view, full of life.

So much so that they have

seperate refrigerators at home.

Fed up with Babulaal's boring fridge,

he has bought his own.

No, no, no, he doesn't

eat all this stuff.

But he has a philosophy.

You may not eat all

this for health reasons.

But opening the

fridge should be fun, at least.

And the guy he's explaining

his philosophy to is... Dhiru.

Dhiru, bring me a strip of B-Complex.

God has not given him the filter

that exists between thought and speech...

He came to Mumbai

from a small village in Gujarat...

...and got a job as a delivery

boy in Hashmukh Medical Stores.

Hasmukh bhai,

this one's expiring in 10 days.

So should I give this one...

...or the ones you asked me

to keep aside for later?

Bring those

- Which ones?

The ones we kept aside.

100 rupees.

Thank you.

- Mention not.


Look, son,

do your job in a way...

...so that I am thankful

to you and not the customer.


I'll make a quick trip to Shanti Niwas.

Keep that in mind as well.

You work here, not in Shanti Niwas.

'Although he works at the pharmacy...'

'...he derives job satisfaction

at Shanti Niwas.'

'Conversations with Dattatrey...'

'...are like vitamin pills for him.'

'But the pills have a side effect too.

Where do I keep these medicines?

How long have you been working

for Hasmukh bhai?

2 full months.

Then why do you still ask


Where to keep the medicines

Where to collect the money

And where to keep coins.

It is all meticulously decided by Babulal.

Yet Dhiru being Dhiru.

He has to ask everything each time.

"Experiments of Urine therapy."

Isn't that Gandhiji's autobiography?

That was:
experiments with truth.

This is:
experiments with urine.


- Hun.

Did you keep the medicines?

- Yes, I did.

Then what are you waiting for? Lunch?

Dattatrey uncle had called up.

He has asked me to wait here

after delivering medicines.


He's going to make an announcement.

What announcement?

A... historical... announcement.

You left the tap

open again in the morning.

Forget the tap.

Come here.

Let me introduce somebody to you...

Meet Mr. Ong Chong Tun Pen

from China.

Aged 118 years 3 months and 28 days.

Long life.

Longest in the history of Mankind.

See... His name is on the Record Books.

Page 90.

- Alright I got it.

And one more thing...


Today is 14th February...

Valentine's Day.

And on the occasion of Valentine's Day

I take an oath...

I vow to break

this Chinese man's record.

Yes... I will.

I will replace him in the record book...

Only 16 years to go.


- Yo, uncle.

What do you think, Baabu?

Can I break his record?

Can I go now?

The maid isn't coming today.

I've to put clothes out to dry.

Here I am making an

important announcement...

...and you're caught

up with these petty things.

Tell me:
Can I break

his record, or not?

Yes, and the record that you will set...

...will not be broken till the dooms day.


Can I go now?

You see, I can't wear soggy underwear.

Just a second. One second.

- What now?

There's a problem breaking this record.


I saw this Chinese man's interview

on the internet.

And he clearly said that...

"Old, boring,

and unenthusiastic people..."

"...are more injurious

to health than cigarettes."

"In order to have a long life..."

"...one must stay miles away

from such people."

This means...

...I can never break his record.

- Why?

Because I'll be spending

the rest of my life with this guy.

This boring, unenthusiastic, old man.

Because of him we have

two televisions in the house.

Do you know what he watches on his TV?

Yoga...with his feet crossed.

In fact, he inhales so much air...

...that sometimes I fear whether

there will be enough left for me.

You should watch National

Geographic instead.
