- They've arrived, sir!

- l know that.

Long live Justice Sinha!

Move aside... go on!

lt's time for the meeting, sir.

Excuse me.

Long live..!

Here's a real social-worker

after Mahatma Gandhi.

- He's cast a spell on the public.

- We're social workers, too.

But no one cares for me...

l'm talking about myself

- But they're bothered about you.

- Get to work!

The open-door policy has now brought

us to the crossroads, gentlemen.

On the one hand is the

path to prosperity...

...which demands great sacrifice.

On the other, there is the path

of peace and brotherhood.

Now, are we prepared for a struggle

so that we may prosper in future?

Or do we wish to be happy

as we are?

That is the question

before us today.

This is wonderful!

Caught between the devil and

the deep blue seas, isn't it?!

We'd better not stray from

our point of discussion.

We have been discussing this

for long in any case.

l think we must adopt the path of

modernization and progress, Governor.

We must permit foreign companies to

have free trade in our country.

We must tolerate the difficulties

we are likely to encounter.

We can't have roses

without thorns, can we?

We must not let foreign companies

set foot on our soil!

Between holding a gun to the

temple and enslaving someone...

...and buying them out with dollars,

there is no difference whatsoever.

You mean, the snake in the

grass, don't you? Beautiful!

You're the best of patriots,

if ever there was one!

This is the age of billionaires

and millionaires, Mr. Minister!

The power brokers

don't matter much.

The fallen statues of the icons

in Russia bear out this fact!

Think of the money that the open-door

police will bring into the country.

You're right. The influx of foreign

currency will strengthen our Rupee.

We will be self-reliant.

We will not have to mortgage our

gold-reseryes with other nations.

- Our country will roll in wealth!

- No! lt will go bankrupt!

The multi-nationals will rob

the country of its wealth.

Their computers will render

millions of our workers jobless.

This will result in inflation. Those

living in flats will move to slums...

...and those from the slums

will be out on the streets...

...only to be crushed under the

swanky cars of the corporate sector!

lt is because of stubborn people like

you that this country was divided!

There were widespread riots;

Gandhi was assassinated...

...and the Babri mosque

was demolished!

You are penny wise

and pound-foolish!

You invoke the name of Lord Rama

only to defame him!

Stop being a stooge of the

foreign companies, Mr. Chaudhary!

lt's ordinary cloth that will make

your shroud! Not dollars!

- Mr. Vilasrao...

- Don't scream! l can do that, too!

Please be calm...

Sit down, both of you.

For a moment l thought

we were in Parliament!

We only stand to gain from

the open-door policy!

Please go ahead and

sign the ordnance.

Please be cautious in every

step you take, sir!

This has to do with the future of

the millions of the country.

We have had a pretty good debate

on the open-door policy today.

lt's true, the issue is complicated

and not very simple.

But l hope to find a solution

in about a fortnight.

We will surely find a


...which preseryes the welfare of

the people and their progress.

l thank all of you

for being here.

The briefcase contains

a million Rupees, Vilasrao.

Just make sure that

there is no strike.

You have oiled the

machinery, Mr. Modi.

l will now skirt the issue of

the workers' demands.

You look worried, even

after the recoveries?

l've been thinking about

the open-door policy.

lf multi-nationals are

allowed entry,...

...all this work will be

accomplished by computers.

That the workers will

starye is a truth.

What is worse is that our

livelihood will be endangered.

We must now see whose opinion

the Governor approves of...

...and whom he eventually snubs.

You have a high Blood Pressure.

You don't seem to be

taking your medicines.

l remind him even in the office.

But he refuses the medicine.

- You may leave, Mr. lshwar.

- You're getting rid of me!

This contains the memo of today's

meeting and tomorrow's program.

l will leave now. Please see that

he takes his medicines.

Everyone is worried about your

health, except your own self.

So long as Dr Gandhi is around,

nothing will happen to me.

But people need doctors to

even walk around these days!

Wrong! A personality like you needs

a lawyer, too, besides a doctor.

''After whatever you've thought,

you have to get along with me''

How does the B.P.

read today, Dr Gandhi?

His condition is not very good.

Oh, come on!

lt's not his work that

is worrying him, doctor.

We have some problems

in the family.

Would you go outside

and play, son?

Why keep secrets from them?

They're like family.

You know he married me

and took Sahil for his son...

...after the death

of my husband.

He loves Sahil more than he would

love his own son.

But, for some reason, Sahil is

drifting away from him.

He is always aloof and withdrawn.

l have nothing against Sahil...

Why don't you have a heart

to heart talk with Sahil?

But what will l

discuss with him?

l remember a couplet for

this delicate situation.

''What could be the reason

for this strife?''

There is no strife

between us, Mr. Thanawala.

Sahil is still a kid.

He will himself realize

how much l love him.

You are very late, son.

You must return a bit early.

We miss you at dinner...

Why must we be strangers? Why can't

we live like father and son?

You are undoubtedly my mother's

second husband...

...but you are not

my father.

- May l have a word with you?

- But who are you?

l'm a salesman... l sell love.

l seryice beautiful girls like you,

absolutely free of charge.

- Pardon me?!

- l know the art of making love.

lf l kiss you, you can assume you

have excelled in the test of love.

You would like to excel,

wouldn't you?

- Who the hell are you?

- l'm a salesman, too.

l sell junk! l set guys like

you right, without any charge!

This is not your vice-den!

lt's my college!

Thanks for helping me.

You look familiar. Have we met?

- Yes. On several occasions.

- But you've just joined college.

But you've known me for years.

We have a great friendship.

l have no friends.

l'm all alone.

You still haven't changed. You were

like this even as a child!

Always racing away

on the red bicycle...!

When did you return from


- lt's a month now.

- Then why didn't you meet me?

l wanted to give you

a surprise.

Which is why l took an admission

in your college.

l wanted to see if you'd

recognize me.

And what did you see?

That you're still as you were...

absolutely lonely.

l won't consider myself

a loner anymore.

Neither will l.

l've got to see the Principal!

l'll meet you tomorrow!

- l apologize for my uncle.

- ... that's in the past.

You won't punish me for

what my uncle did?

- Not at all.
