"Atithi Devo Bhava."

This means, guest is God.

Guests like aunts and uncles..

..brothers-in-law and


Or their friends, or the

relatives of their friends.

These are the forms they come in.

The crows are the

messengers of these guests.

And they announce the

arrival of the guests before hand.

""Feel at home.""

Guests are usually

welcomed home using such words.

Big mistake.

Because they really

start feeling at home.

ln the beginning,

we enjoy the guest"s company..

..and the gifts

that they bring along.

But gradually this germ..

..slowly spreads

around our entire house.

Even our ancient scriptures..

..contain descriptions of

this inferior being, guest.

Mama Shakuni, Jaichand, Manthara..

..Musharaff, etcetera.. have

all been our esteemed guests.

Usually these guests appear

during Diwali, Christmas..

..and summer holidays.

But sometimes,

they arrive at any given occasion.

Scientists around the

world are still researching..

..the arrival and

departure of these beings.

We"ve learnt from reliable sources..

..that guests are

creatures who have.. fixed arrival

and departure time.

That"s why they"re called,

"A-Tithi" (dateless).

Yes, sir. Taneja Arts Present,

"Pachaas" (Fifty ).

Hail Goddess.

Scene no. 1 . The movie begins.

The hero is running

covered in blood.

Cut to, the hero"s legs,

he"s running.

Cut to, tight close of

the hero, he"s running.

Cut to side trolley,

the hero is running.

Cut to crane shot,

the hero is running.

Cut to, the hero"s legs,

he"s running.

Cut to, tight close of

the hero, he"s running.

Cut to crane shot,

the hero is running.

Cut to side trolley,

the hero is running.

Cut to POV, the hero is running.

Stop it, stop it how long will

you make him run. l"m tired.

The hero?

- No, no not the hero, l"m tired.

Run ahead. l mean go ahead.

- Yes, sir.

While running he comes

in front of a shanty.

And knocks on the door.

Enough, that"s all right.

What next?

What happened?

- After that.. Just a minute, sir.


He breaks down the door.

The hero"s deaf sister

hears the breaking of the door.

She sees the hero

and shrieks, ""Brother""!

The hero is about to fall..

..when his disabled father runs

and catches him.

The hero"s blind brother starts

crying at the sight of blood.

His tears are falling.

The hero"s elder sister

who is suffering from Polio..

..of both the hands

wipes his tears.

The hero staggers and falls

at her mute mother"s feet.

And says ""Mother. Mother,

l"ve killed Manohar Lal"".

Hearing that,

the hero"s mother says..

Just a minute, what is all this?

What kind of a family is this?

The mute mother can speak.

The deaf sister can hear.

The blind brother can see.

The disabled father runs.

The elder sister has

polio in her hands.

What is all this?

Oh, no, sir.

The story becomes clear..

..when we go into flashback.

Actually 15 years ago

Manohar Lal killed..

..the hero"s sister"s

insane husband..

..on the 50th day of their marriage,

just for 50 rupees.

The widowed sister

banged her hands.. hard on the ground

to break her bangles..

..that they were crippled

with polio.

Seeing this the mother shrieked

so loudly that she lost her voice.

And the shriek damaged

the eardrums of the sister.

Father was so shocked, that he

suffered a paralytic attack.

And how did the

younger brother turn blind?

He was blind since birth.

ls this a family or a hospital

for the deaf, dumb and disabled?

This is my family Taneja.

Oh, good family.

The public will shed tears.

The public will shed tears

when the mute mother talks.

l can"t hear anymore.

l"ll leave Taneja.

l can"t hear any further.

Puneet, go for it.

Just go for it.

The mute mother"s dialogue

should be mind-blowing.

l"m writing that, sir. l"m on it.

l"m leaving, Taneja.

- l"ll see you out.

No, you remain seated and listen.

Know more about my family.

Okay. Hail Goddess.

Puneet, come on, start.

For the super-hit story.

Look, l completely trust

my talent and your laptop.

lt"s almost done, sir.

Sir, if l could get my cheque?

You"ll get the cheque too.

Why do you worry?

Actually, my mummy and

daddy are coming over.

l have to take them

to Ashtavinayak.

l have to take them

to Siddhivinayak.

To Shirdi, to the hospital.

- Hospital?

l"ve to get them operated.

Actually, mother can"t see properly.

And father can"t hear properly.

My family is very

similar to the don"s family.

And then, no one gives a

concession during recession.

And then if you have guests,

it really makes things worse.

l need to show this

to the lead actor.

The opening shot is

scheduled for after 20 days.

lt"s done, sir.

- Thank you.

Thank you.

As per "Vaastu Shastra"

(science of architecture)..

..l want my bathroom here,

where my bedroom is. - Right.

And l want my bedroom here,

where my bath is. - Hello.

Do you get my point?

- l"ll just come.

Are you listening J. D?

- Yes, yes, Mrs. Khanna you"re right.

There it is, okay.

- Yes.

Mrs. Khanna, last time you said.. want your bedroom

where your kitchen is.


- l"ll be right there.

You"ve already got it

demolished three times.

So what?

l"ll keep getting it

demolished until l"m satisfied.

After all it"s not very

often that one gets a house made.

Yes, but you"re getting

it demolished very often.

What"s breaking down?

- The house is breaking down.
