Aradhana

In the eyes of the law, murder is the greatest

of all crimes!

And when a woman who gives

birth to man takes a life...

...it becomes more heinous.

And so I ask the court

not to be lenient...

...just because

the accused is a woman.

She should be punished severely

to teach other people a lesson...

...and it will also serve

to uphold the law.

Does the accused wish to say

something in her defence?

No.

After considering all evidence,

the court concludes that...

...the accused, Vandana has

committed murder with intention.

And so according to section 302

of the Indian Penal Code...

...the accused is sentenced

to life imprisonment.

- Father.

- My dear, you've arrived!

- I hope that you are fine.

- Yes, father.

Let's go. Porter, the luggage!

- You haven't sacked him as yet?

- I have fired him several times.

But I can't help it, as he

keeps coming back in tears.

- Tikaram!

- I'm coming, sir.

Hurry up.

Welcome home.

Please hold this, sir.

- What is this, Tikaram.

- I want your blessings, miss.

Before entering place your hand

on my head and bless me.

I want to be here

till time immemorial.

You've started buttering me

as soon as I have come.

Get up and go and fetch

the bags from the car.

Let's go in, father.

Look at the state of this house.

There's a nest here.

Father, why don't

you tell Tikaram anything?

He is coming here.

Why don't you tell him?

- Whose job is it to clean?

- Mine.

- For how long have you not

cleaned? - I do it everyday.

Why is there so much dust

on this table?

I forgot.

- Quiet! Father, send him away.

- All right.

I want a week off. I'll go

to the village and see mother.

There's no need to return.

Go for a holiday forever.

No, I won't go.

I will never leave.

If I am fired I shall fast

and lie on your doorstep.

I'll die but

I won't leave this house.

All right. Fetch us

some tea before you die.

I'll get it right away, miss.

Tikaram, go and fetch father.

Right now? Does the master

ever return home before 11?

Now he will return. Tell him

that dinner will be served at 9.

All right.

And tell the gardener

to come to work from tomorrow.

All right.

- One more thing.

- Yes, miss.

Tell the washerman to collect

the clothes tomorrow afternoon.

What should I tell the master?

That dinner will be served

at 9 at the clinic?

Fool! Not at the clinic

but at the dining table.

I have understood.

The washerman in the morning and

the gardener in the evening?

Nonsense!

The gardener in the morning and

the washerman in the evening.

If you return, I'll...

- Fool.

- Miss...

I don't have a camera or else

I'd have got a lovely picture.

Well, I...

The water didn't hurt much

but if you throw the bucket...

Please forgive me.

I made a mistake.

- I mistook you for my servant.

- What!

I mean... I was

very angry with my servant.

And you threw the water on me,

that too in this cold weather.

Please come in.

Have you cooled down?

Please don't embarrass me.

Give me your clothes

and I'll dry them.

- Give me your shirt too.

- What!

Wait.

I'll iron them.

- Excuse me.

- Yes?

Suppose I get pneumonia?

You will be cured.

This is the home of a doctor.

- And you are...

- I am his daughter.

Can I have a cup of

steaming hot tea?

Tea! Sure!

- Hello! Are you the doctor?

- Yes. And who are you?

I am a pilot in the Air Force.

Is this the uniform of a pilot?

Actually...

Your daughter took my clothes.

- My daughter?

- Yes.

My daughter is quite

capable of doing this.

You've come, father!

There's someone here to see you.

Yes. There's a pilot
