The day of reckoning

is a beast of its ovvn.

It creeps up on you unawares.

It arrives on a whim,

with its head held high.

And burns everything to ashes.

I still remember that

winter of my childhood.

The harshest we had seen in a while.

It was as though the valley was

shrouded in the sheet of death.

Let me go.

Leave me.

Name?

Your name?

Noor.

Noor what?

Nizami.

Noor Nizami.

Look, I haven't had a drop of vvater

since the past two days.

I want to eat something right now.

If not, I swear I will tear you apart.

And, don't even think of running.

find you and tear you to pieces.

We were a group of five.

Three were killed by the army

on the border.

One of us had turned traitor.

I dug out that bastard from hell.

And gouged his eye out.

Now his one eye will haunt him

for the rest of his life.

ls there a place

where I can spend the night?

- Warning!

The army has you surrounded.

- We don't want any loss to life.

- Give up your arms. Surrender!

- Check over there.

- We are warning you again.

- Give up your arms.

- Surrender!

- Or you'll be killed.

Give me the tool bo.

Noora.

So we are catching a cold now, are we?

Where were you last night?

I fell asleep waiting for you.

I had sent him...

to get the tools from the tool shed.

I was stuck in the snow, sister.

You two have worked hard enough

to create the Taj Ivlahal!

Are the designs for the

embroidery ready?

Why dont you show them?

You both can do as you please.

I request you to

please come home early.

Eid preparations

haven't even begun yet.

Go carefully, dear.

The situation in the city is not safe.

Why do you do this?

You know she gets worried.

Hovv long will I cover for you?

These are beautiful, Noor!

Have you made this?

Why didn't you show them to her?

This time I want a hefty Eid gift.

Don't be miserly.

In cross firing with the army

three millitants were killed.

Millitant commander Ivluazzam Bhatt

is still at large.

The situation has worsened

after the flag was

hoisted on Lal Chovvk.

The army is on high alert.

There is patrolling everywhere.

The Begum has called me to

the mansion to repair the roof.

Thank God.

If the Begum is generous,

we'll make it through this winter.

Our houseboat is hardly

running this year.

Take this mister, too.

Let him know what its like

to work for a living.

Thafll get him in shape.

The Begum came from a princely family.

Pretty as an angel.

Her mother was from Lucknow.

There was a rumour many years ago

that spread like wild fire.

Someone cast an evil

eye on that family.

The Begum is a strict one.

She will not stand any misbehavior.

Concentrate on your work.

Keep an apology and

a greeting always handy.

If anyone asks,

present it immediately.

The city folk say that

the mansion is haunted.

Noora, be careful of the ghosts.

Junaid, tea?

Stop staring.

Firdaus, mother is waiting.

F-I-R-D-A-U-S

Firdaus.

Listen.

Mother has called you inside.

V\/e

be there in two minutes.

Not you. You may rest.

Only him.

I\/Iy sling?

What?

Sling.

Forget about it.

Don't even think of telling anyone.

Thafll be in your best interest.

You are so beautiful.

Hovv did you learn to speak so sweetly?

Don't let your eyes wander

and your words will

automatically become sweet too.

What did you say his name is?

Noor.

Master Hoor, what do you do?

What can you do?

Not Hoor, it is Noor.

What do I need to do?

Damn, it always stops here.

Sing me something.

Something that will touch my soul.

I haven't cried since

a very long time.

Kashmiri Folk Song

Excellent, Firdaus.

Where did you find him?

Sir Noor Khan, arent

you a little gem?

What else can you do?

Can you ride a horse?

What?

Do you at least know hovv

to tend to the horses?

Mother, take a look at his shoes.

So from tomorrow, you will

look after our stables.

If you work diligently,

you will be rewarded well.

And don't think that

I'm offering you a job

because I'm impressed

with your singing.

Firdaus liked your shoes.

And I cannot say no to her.

Firdaus will have

someone to play with.

But you don't play

loose with your heart.

This is the age for you to have fun.

Save all your heartbreaks for later.

Take a token from

Kaleem on your way out.

You are now going to be

a part of this legacy.

Your honour is ours.

Wear something decent from tomorrow.

There is a world beyond shoes, sir.

take your leave then.

Who knew that God had

His grace on this one?

Novv, he

finally be of some use.

You must do everything

to keep them happy.

Are you listening?

Don't do anything silly this time.

Begum can change your

life if she wishes to.

With the soft threads of Pashmina

Someone spins her dreams

Hovv so?

The abundant hills echo

New songs, these instruments

Hovv so?

With the soft threads of Pashmina

The blossoms have just altered

Their moods, feelings

Hovv so?

The eyes have revealed

New secrets, emotions

Hovv so?

With the soft threads of Pashmina

Someone spins her dreams

Hovv so?

It was the age of wisdom, it

was the age of foolishness.

It was the season of light,

it was the season of darkness.

It was the...

Delicate breeze blends

with the young smoke

The youthful heart seeks new moments

Tepid sunshine slips

on the untrodden paths

Somebody surreptitiously whispers

I will be your shadow

Walk behind you

Walk on with you

With the soft threads of Pashmina

Someone spins her dreams

Hovv so?

The abundant hills echo

New songs, these instruments

The Narangs are offering a

cut above the market price.

They want to turn this

mansion into a heritage hotel.

Tell me one thing, Zafar.

Has your father not

left you with anything?

You come here salivating every year.

Now please do me a favour and

get your sorry face out of here.

Sell it, sister.

The market situation is bleak.

Jagirdar, show them out.

The old woman has lost her head.

She has wasted more than

half her fortune on jewelry.

She should be sent to Tussauds.

They will take her as is.

Calm down, Sameera.

There is jack sh*t we can do.

14th October. 3:
10 pm.

Remember the day and time.

I made you my friend today.

It's my birthday net week.

You have to come.

Don't forget.

Stop staring, Noor. It's bad manners.

Did he like it?

Yes, mother.

I saw him.

He cou

dnt let go of it.

I have invited him on Sunday.

Dear, at this rate the

world will come to an end

and you still won't know what to wear.

And anyway, if Rukhsar figures out,

who knows what she will do to us.

You are really scared

of her, arent you?

You can't hurry these things.

It's Firdaus birthday.

Not your regular local fair.

Sure, I'm looking good?

Yes, like a prince.

Noor!

There now, sister has

seen my outfit too.

Prayer for the departed.

Firdaus!

Firdaus!

You've come now?

The birthday was yesterday.

Firdaus will now wait for

you on her net birthday.

Where is Firdaus?

Firdaus.

If there is a heaven on

earth, it is here. It is here.

These are cruel times.
