Synopsis: When a successful manager decides to sell his plantation in his ancestral village to another company, his young daughter begins acting very strangely.
135 min

Can I tell you something, Anna?

We need one more tube well,

Anna. In the northern side.

I have spoken to the overseer.

It will be done cheaply.

And Anna...

If this much is done, I swear...

our crop will double.

What do you say? Anna,

there is another thing.

We should do something

to sell the crop too.

The previous broker has expired.

His sons have taken

a job in Bangalore.

We have to fix some new

trustworthy broker.

What do you say?

Our crops will be the

best in the area.

I have even started fasting

every Thursday.

The Goddess Yellama should

give her blessings too.

Everything isn't done

by our actions.

What do you say?

Are you going back tomorrow?

- Yes.

Our land is very good. We

should look after it nicely.

What do you say?

Move... move...

- Snake... kill it...

No... no... Anna... don't kill it...

...It is guardian of

this prosperity.

Hey stays here. He guards

the land and the family.

He won't bite, he will

go away himself.

Let it go. Let it go.

Shiva! Shiva! Shiva!

Tenni... Tenni... Tenni...

bring some water.

Tell Bilkis that we will

have food quickly.

And keep some water

for me outside.

Father has told me

to bring the food.

Go, take it away quickly.

I know, Anna. You don't

believe in such things.

But I think that you should

hold a prayer here.

Tenni, give Anna

some more pulses.

We have made pulses

just as you like it.

When will Nanduanna and

Ummakka come here?

It is many days that

they haven't...

...come here for a vacation.

- Yes, they should come too.

All this is theirs, isn't it?

And current will come here too.

What do you say?

Tenni was just two years

old when Majhi died.

Since that time, Tenti

is everything for us.

She has brought up Tenni.

I know...

You never liked

me keeping Tenti.

Because she is of a lower caste.

But she is a very

big hearted woman.

And Anna...

The one who wishes support,

doesn't see any religion.

What do you say? Oh!

Once the current comes,

there will... light here just like any

city. It won't take long now.

It will come any day now...

It will come... - Come here.

Sit down. I want to

tell you something.

Therefore, I have come here. I

have sold this land and house.

Anna... - Yes. I will be

retiring in some years.

And I wish to make a bungalow

in Bangalore.

You don't know how

much it takes...

...for a bungalow to

be built nowadays.

The new owner of this place

will have a soap factory here.

He will come here

someday next week.

Show him this place. And give

him the room's keys too.

And see, he shouldn't

have any trouble.

Factory here? What will

happen of the land, Anna?

Nothing is permanent, Vasu.

This land is sold.

The villagers will get

a job in the factory.

Other people will think of

settling a factory here too.

And then slowly, the whole

village will progress.

All this... all this...

on this land?

Anna, what will happen

of the crop?

Only the room will stay.

Everything else will be destroyed.

All my trees... all

my plantations...

How will the trees stay?

Once the factory... settled here, all the

trees will be cut down.

But... you don't have

to be worried.

I will arrange for you to work

in some bank in Bangalore.

You will have a quarter

to stay too.

I have spoken to Mr. Shetty

of Canara bank too.

If you want to stay here, that

can be arranged too. Okay?

Why do you think so much?

Please sleep now.

How can I sleep? How

can I just sleep?

This... this is our mother.

Is it nothing for Anna?

Can Anna sell his mother such

guts? - Please... sleep. - No!

I will ask Anna. Why doesn't

he sell his mother?

The trees won't stay.

Nothing will stay.

Everything will be lost.

What will be left? The factory?

This whole land will go beneath

bricks and mortar.

This is rape. This is rape.

What do you say?

No... - These trees,

these green trees.

Everything will be ruined.

- This is our fate.

What can anyone do? This

isn't your land. - Yes.

This isn't my land.

This is Anna's land.

He can do whatever he wants to.

So what? Am I nothing here?

Do I not own anything here?

I have made all this

with such hard work.

My whole youth has been

invested on this.

This is my Lakshmi. This

is what has fed me.

Who will save it now?

Anna has done wrong. He

has sold his mother.

So you decide about yourself

quickly and tell me.

And see, he shouldn't

face any problems.

You start packing your

luggage right now.

And make your laborers

understand it.

They will get a job and the

salary will be more too.

Okay? Come on. Gopal.

Those old photographs.

Send them to Bangalore.

They shouldn't get spoilt.

Come, Gopal.

And tell me quickly

about yourself.

What should I tell you?

That girl whom I saw...

...on MG Road yesterday

what a gait she had!

Wow! I felt that I should

run after her and...

So someone's gait makes

you crazy? - Of course.

Your taste is going so low now.

Oh! That is where

the real fun is.

It must be for you.

- What? - I love Madhya Pradesh.

Madhya Pradesh?

Why not? Below the blouse

and over the sari.

Fantastic. - Nandu, which

Pradesh do you like?

We are just talking in the

air here for me and you.

Nandu's life is arranged


120 pounds of Miss Neeladevi.

- Correct.

Wow! We should have

a smoke on this one.

No. You know that I don't

like cigarettes.

There is bitterness on the

lips due to smoking.

I see, I see. I understand.

Here are my two rupees.

I am going.

So quickly?

- Yes.

My daddy is coming back

from the tour today...

...We have to have food

together. - Okay, okay.

Don't make such a

huge excuse. Go.

See, you.

He will go directly

to Neela now.

Mummy, holidays and picnics,

all are done with.

When are the factory

people going?

They will go within a few weeks.

Daddy, we should have

kept that place.

Oh! Come, come. That has been

thought about earlier.

It is necessary for us to have

a house in Bangalore, okay?

But what did Basua say?

He hasn't decided

anything as yet...

...when he will, he will tell me.

Ramu, you have started applying

chilly with closed eyes?

Take some care and apply it.

Mother, I am going on a

trip on the eighteenth.

I will take curds and

rice with me. - Okay. -

For eight to ten people.

Rama, don't forget it.

It should be ready at

five in the morning.

The eighteenth is a Friday,

isn't it? - Yes.

Where are you going, Anna?

You told Basua about

the photos...

...isn't it?

- Yes, I had told him.

Nandi. To hunt rabbits.

We will go in the morning

and come in the evening.

Madam... it is the new

moon's night on the eighteenth.

Oh Nandu, can't you

go on some other day.

Mother, everything has

been decided previously.

And some boys and girls

are coming from Mysore too.

But Nandu, there will be

prayers in the house on that day.

It is a very bad day, son.

And then going out on

that day is not good.

You go some other day.

- What nonsense!

Saroja, you believe in all

these things even today?
