Sir, congratulations on the district!

Though, I've heard Tejpur

is a rough district

But you won't have any problems.

DIG Verma is there

Thanks. Now you all go.

It's time for the train.

I have to make a call

How are you son?

Why didn't you call yesterday?

Anuradha was so worried

Here, talk to him.

I don't want to talk

Yes, what is it?

I just didn't get time yesterday

It was twelve by the time I wrapped up

work at the office

Yes, yes. I know everything.

You're smoking a cigarette, no?

You women have telescopes on your noses.

Hey, I don't even touch cigarettes

One should learn

the art of lying from you

Okay, tell me, why did you call up?

I've got a district posting

Really! Where?


Tejpur? Have you gone mad?

I'm not going to that wild district

Okay, then you stay

with my mother...

and I'll eat the guest house chappatis

all my life

Madam, for a district, something other

than a gold medal is required

I've got Tejpur because

nobody wants to go there

Naturally. Who wants to go

to such a violent place?

Nowadays which place

isn't violent, Anu?

You don't worry needlessly.

Make a programme to come quickly

Impossible! Amit, you know how scared

I am of violence...

how I opposed the IPS...

and now Tejpur

Anu, it's not what you think.

It's just a job

There are no hassles for those who

work within rules and regulations

You know, I also

don't like violence

Listen, if I don't do this now,

I don't now when I'll get a district

And now I can't stay without you

There is a bungalow,

a very big garden...

When are you leaving?

Right now

The train is leaving

in five minutes

At 7 in the morning, I'll reach

the Motipur Division headquarters

I'll take charge from DIG Anurag Verma

and go straight to Tejpur

You get your reservations done

for next week


Okay, come on... cheer up Anu

Say bye to me properly or I'll

keep sitting here and smoking

And I'll miss the train.

What! So you were smoking. I knew it

Let me just come...

then I'll show you...!

Fixed one for you also, sir.

Just one, small peg

As far as we know, this is

your first district posting?

Yes. You all do business?

Yes. This is Nandkumar and I am

Satyasheel. We own sugar mills

Well, can we ask you

a question in private?

What is the going rate

for the district SP?

I didn't understand

Tejpur is a district

for earning, brother

Strong mafia groups there the

minister must have taken a fat packet

Listen, you are under

a misconception

You also, Mr SP...

Only last year, we financed the

transfer of Lakhisarai SP, N B Prasad

We have a factory there...

lots of labour problems

That time, from the local MLA

to the Home Minister Dwarka Rai...

it cost us 5 million

Forgive me, but I don't

need any finance

Tejpur is the biggest of the six

districts in the Motipur division

It's a little disturbed. The earlier

SP Gupta had a bad time

He was a nervous type...

new IPS...

he clashed with the local mafia. Lost

his dignity and district as well

But you don't worry.

DSP Bhurelal is my man there

Very efficient.

Keeps everyone together

You just relax

If there is any problem, just ring me up

and I'll settle everything from here

You can benefit fully

from my experience

I have seventy years experience.

Seventy years

My father joined the British Police

as head constable...

and after 40 years retired as DSP

I was directly recruited

as the DSP 30 years ago

And now I've been promoted to DIG

From the bottom to the top,

I'm in touch with everyone

You are very lucky that an officer

like me is your DIG

What happened?
