We won't leave this place.

It's not just a jungle.

It's our home.

I have lost my papa.

Now I don't want to lose my home.

Time please, dad. Time please.

That's it. Give up?

- No chance.

Exactly. You stand no chance.

I will hit once.

But it will be a severe blow.

Oh, God! But, son, you only

know how to say dialogues, right?

After all, he is like his father.

I was crazy about these charms.


When I decided to make you my wife.

Wow! Well said, son.

Another dialogue.

And I will smack you both on your bum.

Wow! You are a poet, mom.

Very funny. You be quiet.

And you stop fighting.

Do you intend to make

my Yuvi Rambo in a day?

I was teaching him self-defense.

I am making him a man.

Exactly. He is not a man.

He is a cub.

Mom, please chill.

- No, I am not going to.

What if you get hurt?

And what do you know..

What a mother goes through!

- What a mother goes through!

Fine! Do whatever you want!

Don't come to me crying.

I think tonight you will

have to sleep outside the cave.

Don't worry, son.

I know how to placate your mother.


- With a song.

You are my world.

I am speaking the truth.

Believe me.

Why are you upset?

With me.

Understand my plight wordlessly.

Your anger is fake, fake, fake.

It's not real.

It's not good to hurt

and torment me, beloved.

O beloved.

O beloved.

Don't skirt eyes. Smile.

Adorn my dreams.

I will keep both my worlds.

At your feet.

I don't want to live without you.

Don't want to live.

I am wherever you are, beloved.

I will go away from your world.

You can't influence me.

Don't flatter me.

You know how to entice.

I have come back to you, defeated.

Withered flowers of

love will blossom.

O beloved.

O beloved.

O beloved.







If papa had been alive,

and one of us had been shot..

..would he have left this place?

There is a huge difference

between your papa and us, Yuvi.

We are not strong like him, son.

But he always considered

all of you his strength.

If he is not there, we..

- If he is not there,..

.. then we can't do anything.

Today he was shot.

Tomorrow we might be shot.

As it is, what difference does it

make if we live here or elsewhere?

If we go somewhere else,

at least we will survive.

Yes! True! Absolutely right!

- Absolutely right!

All of you are cowards.

Real cowards.

So what if the King is not there?

His commander is

with all of you, right?

Those who have

encroached on our home..

..we will teach them a lesson.

We will beat them black and blue!

Like this.

There are two soldiers in my ape army.

On my signal they will attack.


- Attack.

Attack. - Oh! Shut up!

What's your problem, chimp?

You are ever ready to fight.

Discussion. Every problem

can be solved with discussion.

You know that, dear?

You mean you will go to humans.

They will say good morning

and tell you to have a seat.

You will say, Uncle bulldozer,

don't snatch our home.

They will say sorry

and offer you coffee.

Their bulldozer will take a u-turn

and they will leave the jungle?

O ignorant fellow,

they are humans. Humans.

They don't even pity their people.

They will shoot you dead.


Hey! Listen, chimp!

All of them must not be like you.

A few must be like me.

We can talk, chitchat, discuss.

Fine. I agree. I agree

that they will listen to you.

But who will talk?

Is there anyone among us

who knows human language?

Is there anyone?

- Yes, there is.


- Who?

Who is it?

- Who is it?

Secondly.. - Fool, first

say what's the first thing?

First? Yes. That's what I was saying.

I know someone who can help us.

Because he knows not just our

language, but also human language.

And his name...

his name...his name is..

His name is... his name..

What is it?

Just now it was on my mind.

Name! Name! Name! Name!

Rajni. Ghajini. Kalpana. No.

Vijay Dinanath Chauhan.

Shut up!

This is not your film shooting.

It's life. Life.

They will heed only action.

Not words. No. - Enough.

It's enough, Bajrangi.

Now we need neither words nor action.

The decision has been made.

We will leave this jungle in two days.

'Parinda' (Hindi movie).

Uncle Hawa-hawai.

Who knows human language?

You? Who are you?

I am Yuvi, uncle.

- Yuvi?

Your friend.

- Friend?

Ditto. Same to same.

Secondly, you also pack your

bags and leave this place.

But where will you go?

I will go. I will go. I..

Where will I go? My home..

- Is here, right?

His name is Alex. He is film

director Vikram Khosla's parrot.

His wings are weak. He can't fly.

But what a parrot! Hindi.

English. Punjabi. Gujarati. Marwari.

He knows all languages.

But why are you asking me all this?

I have a plan.

Anger means sin, ego.

And this will be your end.

I am telling you. If you

want to be a big leader.. have to

swallow your small anger.

Like a milkshake.

So my darling monkey,

whenever you lose temper..

..stop right there.

Take a deep breath.

Now exhale.

- Not so deep.

And remember my mantra.

One. Two. One. Two. Three.

Stick out your right arm.

And then your left next.

Twirl around tummy.

And move your butt like this.

We do the hugging and

hug the little monkey.

And start from the clock again.

We do.. - Magical hug.

I have seen this scene before.


First shall we talk about

the first thing, uncle? - Yes.

That's what I was saying.
