Get my phone.

They have provided self-help books

to the students appearing for the exam.


The students are worried about

how the paper would be.

We are worried about

what the questions would be.


Get me some chilled water.

We will try our level best...

Has she gone deaf?

She can't even get me a glass of water!

Lazy woman!


-Sir, parcel.

-Sign here.

-Give me a pen.

I don't have a pen.

-Don't you have a pen?


What's wrong with everyone?

Victory to Arun Gawli!

Victory to Arun Gawli!

Victory to Arun Gawli!

Former Mafia Arun Gulab Gawli is

fondly called "Daddy" these days.

He is now a changed man.

He is taking his political

campaign very seriously;

focusing his time on social work

by providing medicines,

electricity and water to the poor.

He did a good job...

Now we're getting drinking water.

Otherwise, we were facing a lot

of water-related problems.

Now we have a garden to play in.

It has new swings

and it's fun playing there.

-Tell me more, dear.

-He built a gym in the school.

Now, in school we have uniforms,

tie, notebooks and lunch as well.

Do we have to give him

police protection now?

They've turned him into a hero.

People who were earlier terrified

to enter the Dagdi Chawl...

but today, he is been looked up to

and compared to Robin Hood.


Geeta, I don't know who Robin Hood is.

He is a thief, but not a villain.

He takes from the rich

and gives it to the poor.

That's good.

The residents here are very happy with him

and they are praying

that he wins in the next elections.

Open all his old cases.

Do you remember Vijaykar?

He's been after him since 1986.

We have even held back his retirement.

He must be remembering

the numbers of the old cases too.

There is one thing in life

that is very rare.

That's an opportunity.

Your entire life can pass by

in the search of that one chance.

I felt as if my life had passed by too.

But there it was again.

I got an opportunity.

How many people were there?

Two, sir.


Did you see the shooter?

No, sir.


Someone shot MLA Mhatre.

This is a big case.


-Yes, sir.

I think it's him.

It's him.

It's him.

Hello, ma'am.

I've got pedha for you.

You like pedha, don't you?

Have some sweets.

So, where is the leader of the nation?

What did he do now?

You want to know what he did.

What has he not done?

He started with extortion,

moved to gambling, robbery, smuggling...

And then murder.

Your son will soon go in

for a long vacation!

He doesn't owe you anything.

So, why can't you leave him alone?

That's exactly what

I'm trying to figure out.

He is not even letting me retire in peace.

He feels that one becomes a Gandhi

by merely wearing a Gandhi cap.

He became what he had to.

I don't know whether it

was bad luck or bad influence.

But the worst thing

in his life was poverty.

There is no smoke without fire.

There's a strike. No one will work today.

Stop working, everyone. Stop everything.

-I've got lunch for my father.

-Take your dad and get lost.

No one will work.

He hasn't eaten since morning.

You pimp! I will have to knock

some sense into you.

Whom did you call a pimp?

You cannot understand the plight

of a mill worker's son.

Go and inquire about the

200,000 workers who lost their job.

Go and ask what happened

to their children.

-Babu, you're cheating again.

-Come on, play.

Put that coin back.

Will you play or not?

I won't play if you cheat.

-You play, Rama!

-Let it be.

Where the hell are you going?

Sit down!

Play with Rama.
