Dev Pratap Singh...

You are accused of

use of excessive force...

against the students of RM College

Do You agree?

- No Sir

I believe, in the situation

I did what I considered right

DCP Dev... the reason

for Your decision to use a firearm?

When I reached the college

with the police partY...

Down with Principal Dixit!

Down with Principal Dixit!

TheY had barricaded the principal

in his office

Long Live Students' Union!

- The police are here!

Stop the Police!

Block their path!

Did You trY to talk to the students

and resolve the situation?

Down! Down!

Down with the police

and the administration!

TheY were not willing

to listen to reason

We'll not budge from here!

Police... go back! Go back!

Did You follow procedure and fire

a warning shot in the air?

Do not take the Law into Your hands!

- What Law?!

We know the Law!

Go back...

and leave the law to our care

We know how to preserve the law

and where to keep it...

Want to see?


This is where we keep

Your precious Law

I felt an immediate and

decisive action was required

Did You know the student

was from the minoritY communitY?

No. For me a man

is guiltY or innocent

His being Muslim or Hindu would have

had no bearing on mY action

Because I believe the uniform

must be respected

A senior Officer cannot be

insulted publiclY in this manner

The AuthoritY of the force

must be upheld at anY cost

Otherwise, a hundred bullets

will not be enough to protect the Law

ReallY? I'm coming

HeY, no crYing


Welcome, mY little prince

Bharati, Dev... manY congrats

and thanks... for gifting me a son

He is in mY arms, so he is mine

You maY have alreadY thought of one,

but I will keep his name

HeY, careful...

think of a good one

It will be one from the heart



Armaan... it's nice

Armaan Pratap Singh...?

So be it

So Mr Armaan...

this tall minaret

before You...

You will call Papa, etc...

but me, You will call Uncle DaddY

What is this Uncle DaddY?

Don't confuse him alreadY.

- He won't be confused

Listen Mr Armaan, mY rank

is a bit higher than this papa

"What good is it

reading the Gita...?"

"What good is it

reading the Koran?"

"It's love..."

"that teaches

us about Him"

"In the hues of the beloved,

let me colour mY scarf"

Where're You coming from?

- From Baroda

Where're You going?

- Mumbai


- Farhaan

Farhaan what?

- Farhaan Ali

AnY luggage?

Check it

BY the waY, what were You doing

in Gujarat... I mean Baroda?

StudYing law

What is this?

- Letter

In Urdu?

Where is it from? Pakistan?

You have friends or relatives there?

The letter's from mY father in Mumbai

What if I did have someone

in Pakistan?

Then Farhaan 'MiYa' we would have

made You our guest...

and looked after You well

Just kidding

"I shall drape You, I shall

wear You, I shall laY You out"

"I shall sing with You

in mY breath"

"I am not going to

stop pursuing You"

FiftY bucks



HurrY up!

How long You take?

Farhaan is here


Take a seat... please

I gave You the trouble

of coming here...

because the issue

is of utmost importance

We suspect...

religious fanaticism is being

perpetrated through Your 'Madarsas'

The students are being instigated

to violence against the countrY

This is a serious accusation

JCP Dev saheb

But what I saY is not unfounded

Don't You have teachers and students

from other countries in Your schools?

Sure we do...

but theY come under

education exchange programmes

Perhaps You are unaware that...

several people come here

on tourist visas...

and then conduct
