Grandpa, aunt and ...

Chhoti is crying in the

bathroom go give her some water.

l'll take the tea.

Till the time he

completes his college..

..Mukesh will stay with you.


l have a touring job.

Your daughter runs the house.

l will abide by

whatever you two decide.

Papaji, we never dared to

have a second child of our own.

We have neither the

space nor the means...

Nothing is hidden from you.

He is like my own son.

But, how can l take

his responsibility?

l understand...

lt was my son's age

to take responsibility.

But instead he has

left me with his share too.

Don't worry, l will take

care of any extra expenses bourne

by you from my pension fund.

But, his is a responsibility

we all must share.

l am not going to Delhi.

l am going to stay here.

And take care of Sonu and Chhoti.

Bring me some butter.


No breakfast, Mukesh?

College must have already started.

Eats enough... free loader!

'l was offered the most

pedestrian course in college.'

'B.A Pass.'

Why are you standing on my head!

Want to inhale the smoke?

What do you want?

You are always

in need of something.

Aunt...l need some money.

To get fliers printed.

l am thinking of giving

private tuition to school kids.

Will return the money

as soon as l get the job.

No harm dreaming.

But what if you don't

get the tuitions?

Your grandfather does

not send us a fortune!

No point wasting

money on silly schemes.

Don't you know a chess board attracts

evil spirits with scores to settle.

Wait! Let me search your bag!

Why? Am l a thief?

Kid, this is Delhi!

Here everyone is a thief!

On a good day you get robbed.

On bad days you get killed

first and then robbed.


Wipe that innocent

look off your face!

l catch coffin thieves

like you everyday.

Hey! Stop!

What have you stolen?

Must have stolen something?


A corpse's gold tooth?

A diamond ring maybe?

Come...follow me.

Pious! Need an extra

day to make one box?

He is the one Johnny bhai!

Always loitering around

with a chess board!

Come on, Kasparov...

Sit down.

Kasparov played like a bull!

Karpov was the wily one!

Come on.

Take out your chess board!

What kept you so long?

The ladies have already

started arriving.

Clean up,

at least look a little presentable.

We're having a kitty party.

All the ladies are here.

Yes! Yes! Sarika is here too!

Sarika, my husband says hello.


So, Mukesh!

Working very hard.

Come over to help me sometimes too.

So... when can l expect you?

Mr. Khanna is of hardly

any use in the house!

She just likes to embarrass you!

Don't go pink in the face.

Sarika wants to send

over a case of apples!

Go and pick it up soon.

l'll go next Sunday.

Make us all a pot of

good steaming tea, son.

Sarika called again

about the case if apples.

Tomorrow is a holiday

Listen, her husband

is your uncle's superior.

When such a people call you

even to pick up their rubbish

you thank them for the chance.

And here she wants to

send over a case of apples!

Don't delay it... go tomorrow.

Let me know if you

need anymore bread.

Amit! Get up, son.
