I am retiring tomorrow.

Over the past few weeks,

many people have asked me...

...that Mr. Prakash Rathod

police commissioner of Mumbai...

...that which was the most challenging

and interesting case of your life.

I evaded this question.

Every time... But every time

I remembered only one case.

This case is not

registered in any file anywhere.

There is no record anywhere.

But it is in my mind and...

...in the minds of some people who were

involved in this case unwillingly.

That bastard.

That bastard just had guts to walk

into our lives and blow it apart.

It was a Wednesday.

Hello! Where are you going?

To file a FIR.

To the right. Room number 3.

Who hit you?

- My wife.

I wanted to file an FIR. - Then what

is there to be embarrassed about?


- With a cooker.

I want to file a complaint.

Wait for a while. I will

call you. Have a seat.

Why did she hit you?

The problem was... That...

Come on. Speak up. There

are other people waiting.

I just told her that there

was more salt in the food.

She just flared up.

There was a cooker to her right.

She picked it and

hit me on my left side.

Sir please... Just warn her once.

She keeps hitting me.

You should never ever say

such things to your wife.

Go home and say sorry.

Or else instead of salt she will

put something else in your food.

Did you understand?

Don't take it too seriously. Go on.

Sir, but file a report at least...

- Get lost!

Hey mister, hello...

Mr. Jammu Kashmir please come.

What happened?

- I lost my wallet.

How? What do you mean by how?

How do things get lost?

I mean, where was it lost?

- I don't remember.

When I checked it wasn't with me.

What were its contents?

A photograph of my wife,

driving license. PAN card.

Easy, easy. Sorry.

PAN card, ATM card, and credit card.

There was a railway pass.

Some cash. My wife's photograph.

You have already said that.

- What?

You have already told me

about your wife's photograph.

How much cash was in it?

- Around 300-350 rupees.

Where is the washroom?

- What's your name and address?

Rajesh Kumar Sharma.

S.V. Road, Borivali.

What's your telephone number?

- 9832465784.

Take this. Call up

tomorrow and enquire.

The washroom is to

the right over there.

Thank you.

Sir, it's always a number from

Karachi that flashes on my mobile.

Initially, he used to

address me as brother, sir or boss.

He said his name was Imtiaz.

He said he watches

my films many times...

...and that he was a

great fan of mine.

Then he called today and asked

me to pay up 25 lakh rupees.

Said it was an emergency.

Mr. Arjun Khanna,

what exactly did he say?


Idiot, Why aren't you

signing Desai's film?

He is my special friend. If I don't

get any good news by noon today.

I will pack

- Up your shooting forever.

And keep 25 lakh rupees on hand.

I will call you up later and

tell you whom to give it to.

And why the hell do you

delay so much in taking the call?

Make sure that you pick it up

within two rings the next time.


- Just checking. ' Hang up now.

Where is Jai?

You know that I don't like your

traveling in the train with the baby.

If I go by road I

will reach tomorrow.

Why do you go to your

mom's place so often?

This is the first time

I am going since she was born.

But she'd come to our

house just last week. - So?

She was also there the

week before that. - So?

This should stop... Or

else the sub-inspector in...

...your mom's area is a

good friend of mine.

Why are you so scared of my mom?

Am not scared. Just jealous of her...

...that she spends so much more
