I only know about weapons,

plundering and killing

But let me tell you something.

If you ever give me a son..

I'll never make him like me.

No, I really won't

I mean it. I really do


I'm telling you the truth, my lord

Hey, listen everybody

What is it? -It's a son!

Everything is going

as per the plan

I asked for a son. I got a son

Drinks to everyone on the house!

Let's see whom he looks like

Whom do you look like son?

His nose is just like yours

No! He'll not take after me

He appears to be from

some decent home

Look! How royal he looks.

Like a judge, barrister, doctor..

He's not that lucky.

He'll be what you are!


He'll be a King!

I've such plans for him

that he'll wonder..

How his father made

him what he is!

We are all ready.

It's getting late

I'm coming!

Okay wifey, I'm off. It's urgent

Listen, don't go today.

-Then when should I go?

Today's a lucky day.

A very lucky day

I got a son, and I'll get

a big haul of gold too!

I'll just go and get it

Everything here ? -Yes

Very good. Follow me in the truck.

Hurry up!

Come on driver, step on it

What is 1l10th of 50 lakhs?

-5 lakhs

An egg ?

Stop the truck!

Why what's the matter?

-The whole stuff's gone, boss

That Shankar has fooled

us yet again

And you just gawked? Bloody fool

Today's a great day!

We got all the gold

Just like you. -No!

My son will not be like me at all.


Master! Master! -What's it?

Shankar's son is being

abducted by J K's men

What! Let's see how they

do it with me around

Wait, J K!

Return Shankar's child

I will, He-man. I will. Let

him return my gold first

I'll return his child.

That's between you two adults.

Don't involve the baby in it

Then you also don't involve

yourself in our dispute

Look J K, I don't pick a fight.

But if I do I don't

give up either

Give me the kid!

Stop! Enough is enough

Come on,

hand over Shankar's kid to me

Here Shankar, save your kid

One day you'll be sold

as cheap as dirt

But what will remain behind

will be your words

Leave something behind you,

and then leave this world

One day you'll be sold

as cheap as dirt

But what will remain behind

will be your words

The impossible may lay

thorns in your path

But the possible may help

to find a lost friend

This estrangement, this separation

That moment's helplessness

Why should the hearty be scared?

The streams that flow strongly

are bound to meet somewhere

So become a flowing stream

and then leave this world

What will remain behind

is your words

Behind the veil sits

a dusky beauty

Holding yours and mine

heartstrings in her hand

May she never let go,

nor this bond be broken

It'll be morning soon,

since night will end now

Why are you sitting with

your eyes cast down?

Lock your eyes with the girl's

and then leave this world

One day you'll be sold

as cheap as dirt

What will remain behind

will be your words

Ladies and gentleman,

I've just got a good news..

Which I would like to

share with you all

By the grace of God,

after 14 years a son is born to me

Thank you.

Today he's born in a Nursing Home

Tomorrow he'll take a bow

in the world of fine arts

I request you, just as you

have loved my art and me..

Bless me that one day my son too

will stand on this stage..

To serve you and the arts

as a great entertainer

You're okay?

My son..

Bless you, dear son.

You took so long in coming

Today, when I announced your

arrival in the theatre..

They all clapped so loudly

May God bless you with

such a standing..

..ovation in entertainment

Give him to me.

-When he cries, I get upset
