Our story begins in a city which

you can find very easily on a map.

Just a little ahead

of Delhi lies Khwaish..

..or then, Khwaish

could be within your heart..

..just like, sometimes,

some stories can come true.

Like l said, some

stories can come true..

..and one such story begins in

house number three on this street..

..where Professor Arun lives with

his wife Riya and his son Aladin.

Yes, you heard right.

- Aladin.

They named their son 'Aladin'..

..because they believe

that Aladin's story is true..

..and that they can help

mankind by finding Aladin's lamp.

And today, Arun is going

in search of that lamp.



Arun, we're getting late

and you're standing here.

Bye, Dad.

Bye, Grandpa.

Aladin is too young.. you

shouldn't take him to the mountain.



Then what's the big deal

in naming him 'Aladin'?

The sooner he gets accustomed

to adventures, the better.

Don't worry.

Arun, enough with the suspense.

Will you tell me why

we've come this far up?

My wife, look..

Professor Nazer and my calculations

say that this is here somewhere.

Suppose you found this lamp..

- Okay.

And a genie came out of it..

- Okay.

What will you wish for first?


That you, me and Aladin stay happy,

stay together forever.


Where is your Genie?



Where is your Genie?

l am not the Aladin

from the fairytale.

l can't call a Genie.

But your name is Aladin,

isn't it, duffer?

So, shut up and rub.

Oh, dear Aladin.

Your Genie did not come.

Get up.

You broke the lamp?

Please, Kasim.

Let me go.

l will only let you go

if the Genie comes out.

Get it?

Get another lamp.

l don't want to rub any

more lamps. Let me go.

Hurry. Hurry.. hurry.


Catch him.. catch him.

Don't let him escape.

Catch Alu.. and make

mincemeat out of him.

Aladin. Aladin..

where is your Genie?

Aladin. Aladin..

where is your Genie?

Alu, stop.

Stop, Alu.


Aladin. Aladin.

Where is your Genie?

Aladin. Aladin.

Where is your Genie?


Come on.


Catch him.

Catch him.

Nab him.




Sorry, sorry.


l am sorry.


All my stuff.

l know where to find him.

Wait. But Margina, what have l done?

Did you say anything

about Margina? Food?

Yes. She makes horrible food.

World's worst cook.

Can't even boil an egg properly.

You shouldn't have said that.

- Why?

Here's the egg you ordered.

That's why.


Kasim, l don't want to rub any lamp.

What? Your name is

Aladin and you hate lamps?

Get a lamp for Alu.

Just get the lamp, will you?

What sort of a person are you?

You eat food inside and are

getting beaten up by Kasim outside.

l'd rather get

beaten up than eat this.

So, are you done yet?

lt's done.

- Let me see.



- Finally.

Tea in Chaipiyoji.

'T' for torture man.

Don't change the topic.

Why do you let Kasim bully you?

Why don't you fight for yourself?


What's the point of

fighting for myself?

lt's not like l have to

save the world tomorrow.

What if you had to save the world?

What will you do? Run away?

ln life..

ln life, you have to be

prepared for anything.


- Why?

Because.. is like a restaurant..

..where everyone gets a table..

..but not the menu..

..and no one knows

what kind of food..

..fate will serve you,

Aladin Chatterjee.

Just like in Chaipiyoji.

Very funny.

When Kasim makes you rub lamps..

..keep laughing like this.

You're very mischievous.

And finally..

..let's talk about the comet's

passing which might just be the..

..the most amazing

event of our lives.

Scientists claim that it's
