'Hello. Welcome to Jhansi.

'Let me introduce you to my family.'

Meet my father, Ambernath Bansal...

'...and my mother Shanti Bansal.'

'Mom's silent most of the time.'

'My father takes all

of the decisions in my life.'

'Right now he's deciding...'

'...who is lucky

enough to be my bride.'

'This man here,

who's anxiously tapping his foot...'

' the bride's father.'

They are here with a marriage

proposal for their 'Liability'.

In our country every

child's "balance sheet"...'

' prepared at

since the time of his birth.'

Congratulations, it's a boy.

Boy = Asset!

Congratulations, it's a girl!

Girl = Liability.

'The birth of an 'Asset'

is celebrated with exotic sweets...'

'...while the birth of a 'Liability'

is only cheered with cheap candies.'

'No matter how useless

the boy is...'

'...his value keeps growing.'

'And despite how talented

the girl maybe...'

she's never

enters the 'Assets' column.

'And then, a couple of years later...'

'...the time finally arrives

for their audit report, i.e marriage.'

'The Assets are evaluated...'

'...and their ODP, which is

'One-Time Dowry Price' is declared.'

'And these prices are conveyed

to the concerned parties...'

'...through various agents.'

The party's final offer...

Right after the engagement, there will be

a brand new SUV parked in your garage.


The girl is studying to get a MBA.

The party is willing

to give five million.

And right after the wedding he's

promised 10 acres of land...

And cash separately.

But her qualification won't make

any difference to the price.

Along with that, she will

bring a gold and a diamond set.

Just say yes.

- What more do you want?

- Snacks are nice!

'And the good-for-nothing

'Assef they are all referring to...'

'Is me.'

Badrinath Bansal... aka Badri.

Don't give me that crooked smile.

You're not Shahrukh Khan.

Now smile properly.

A little more.


Come on.

Stop showing your teeth.

Little less.

Now turn your body.

Just your body, not your face.

Like in one of those

clothing commercials.


Why are you tapping your feet.

Stop making me act like a clown!


Soon my company...

will be the biggest matrimonial

company in all of Jhansi and UP.


Think of something else,

that's a stupid name.

Just wait and watch...

I will fix your marriage as well.

No thank you,

my father will take care of that.

By the time your father's

priest finds you a bride...

you will already have turned 50.



This fort was built

in the 11th Century.

Stop, Prakash!

Badri has received a call.

He knows you're here.

Prakash, stop!

Otherwise, Badri will come

run over you with his motorcycle!

Hey, stop.

Stop you...

Prakash, why are you making

my friend run after you?

I didn't notice Somdev...

If you didn't notice him then

why were you running from him?

- I was just jogging.

- Dressed like this?


Why all the exercise?

I am getting married next week.

So I thought I should

lose some weight.

You won't lose weight just by jogging-.

You know what, start doing sit-ups.

I will start tomorrow...

'What you must do tomorrow,

do it today...'

- '...and what you must to today, do it...

- Now!'

- Correct.

- Start.

Do you have any

intentions of repaying...

the 1.5 million you

borrowed from my father?

I met Alok the other day.

I promised to pay him half

the amount right after the wedding...

and the rest in installments.

- Promise?

- Mother-promise.

Wow... someone's been

practicing his English.

You see,

my would-be wife is a graduate.
