Give me your word, Usman

If I'm caught, you will shoot

me at sunrise tomorrow

Step back... move!

One minute... hang on!

Why're you guys pushing

and jostling?

Just a few more breaths

You can't let me down today, Life

I will finally have the bliss...

I have craved for, all my life

Just stand by me till

the break of dawn today

If you had to desert me...

why didn't you leave

me on the day...

I found myself at the

crossroads of life?

Get a hold on yourself

You'll fall, Simran. You've

had too much to drink

Listen to me. Give me

your hand, Simran...

Simran... Simran!

I've landed you in trouble

too. Haven't I, Akash?

You were about to end

all the trouble today

What do you hold against me?

For the first time I've

found a true friend...

and you want to snatch

her away from me?

You were the who was drowning,

but it...

...was I who was dying.

You know that?

Akash, I've never cared for my life

But you've increased its importance

by saving it today

For the first time I've

begun to feel...

that my life and death make

a difference to someone

Oh shut up!

It's two months since we met, right?

Sometimes I think I understand

you very well

And there are times when I think

I don't know you at all

Why do I get the feeling

that you're...

...suppressing something

in your heart?

It keeps trying to come out...

and you always drink

to keep it bottled up

What are you hiding from me,

Simran? What is it?

I don't want to hide from you what's

going on in my heart right now


I don't intend to spend an entire

lifetime in this hospital

Will you take me home?

All right

Akash, stop right here

What's wrong with you, Simran?

You get off at just about any

corner or square every day

It's either this road,

or some other one

Let me drop you home atleast today.

You're not keeping well

Akash, I'm okay. I'll go on my own

I'm still a stranger to you, right?

- Why do you say such things?

That's not true, Akash

I'm always afraid that I'll drop

you some place, someday...

and never see you ever again

Stop talking nonsense. Nothing of

the sort's going to happen, Akash

Okay, I'll skip the nonsense.

But I have two conditions

One, you won't drink again


You'll come to hear me sing

this evening. At the club

I can't guarantee the first. But

I'll surely come to the club

May I go now?


Drunk again?

When are you coming home?

You weren't at home last night

Who'd I come home for?

Who is it that's waiting for me?

You call just once a week...

you have any idea how I spend

the rest of the six days?

Whatever happens, I have to wait for

the phone to ring to talk to you...

and I'm not even supposed

to phone you!

Every time I talk

to you, I wonder...

if I'll ever get to

hear your voice again

If something happens to you...

Everybody's got to die, Simran

But I'm not dying

without meeting you

I've got some important

business to wrap up

I'm taking a ship to Dubai

tomorrow morning

Take care


You are my night, my dawn...

you are my day

You are my God, my universe...

you are my world

To me, you are Time...

and I'm every moment for you

How on earth can you ever

live apart from me?

You are my night, my dawn...

you are my day

You are my God, my universe...

you are my world

To me, you are Time...

and I'm every moment for you

How on earth can you ever

live apart from me?

I don't know why, but without

even realising it...

It was in a moment of weakness...

that I met Akash at this very

restaurant about a month ago

I can't believe I've grown so close

to him in such a little time
