This is the first problem

between a father & son.

The attempts made by the child

to walk on it's own isn't wrong.

Father fears that he might fall.

It isn't wrong either.

But if a father doesn't leave his

son's hand even after 24 years?

I drea.m.

All fathers in this world are...

are you mad to kick my scooter?

Why kick my scooter?

What is your problem?

My father.

What did he do?

He doesn't give me what i want.

Then, it is sure a problem.

But he gives more than i ask for.

How could that be a problem?

Have you gone mad?

You must be lucky to get a father like him.

You won't understand.

You are also a father.

To understand my problems,

ask the mirrors of lifestyle trial rooms.

They will explain.

No. I don't want this.

I want international brands.

- Okay sir.

I want latest trend.

Try this. It's good.

It's for my son & not for me.

He has selected one already.

What will you think if you see

someone wearing this dress?

That's latest fashion.

Youth style.

And now?

- It gives a royal & a dignified look.

What if he tucks in the shirt?

What did you say?

- Youth.

Go & change.

I've come to select a shirt for siddhu.

Wonderful designs.

We didn't have so many

patterns in our days.

It took me 2 hours to select...

- Yes sir.

It's tough going.

You agree, don't you?

Still, your father's character is different.

This is nothing.

There is lot more.

That one.

- Okay sir.

What is this?

Laughing at my problems, ah?

Sorry. Tell me more.

When i ask him for a pencil,

he gets me a parker pen.

I'll ask for a cycle,

he gets me a bike.

I'll ask forjaggery, he gets me

chocolates from america.

He does what he likes most.

Isn't there a solution to this?

Why not?

I've decided to do 2 things

of my choice in life.

Are your problems solved?

Now i've more problems.


- All fathers in this world are...

sathi, a good servant.

I escaped today.

Sir, please get up.

It's too late.

So what?

Everyday must start as we wish.

Father has got up.

Your wish.

Tell her i'm not here.

- Sathi is not here.

Why did you come half way through?

I need at least half of my salary.

I can't tolerate your practical experiments.

Rs. 50 for applying cream.

- That's facial.

Rs. 100 to curl my hair.

- It's called curls.

Rs. 10 to cut my nails.

That's called manicure.

Either set up a beauty parlour for her,

or else hang a "beauty parlour" board in

front of the house. - Will you shut up?

Brother, come.

I'll do a facial for you.

How much?

I'll will give rs. 100 extra.
