Sir? Sir, you...

I'm Hemant the broker.

Do you remember me?

Ma'am had left the key in the mailbox.

That's how I got in.

She's leaving Patna.

She moved out because she quit her job.

She broke the lease

and I have to pay the fine.

She said I could recoup the loss

by selling her stuff.

That's why I am here.

I have a question.

Can I keep the TV?

My wife has been pestering me

for a flat-screen TV.

I'll sell off the fridge and AC.

You can take her personal belongings.

You can keep it

or give it to her later.

Sir, may I ask you something?

Please don't mind.

I know you guys weren't married

and this apartment was leased to her.

What did she really mean to you?

Half? Again? Tell me something.

-Hey, Madhav!

-Okay, explain me this.

Tell me something...

What's the Hindi term

for half girlfriend?

-Please tell me.


Sir, I want to enroll in a good college.

Your college is famous even in Bihar.

It's quite famous.

Sir, I hail from a village.

I feel that... I feel...

I'd like to reply in Hindi.

If I continue speaking in English,

it will take me the whole day.

My mother runs a small school

in our village.

The name of my village is Simrao.

A village plagued by

crushing poverty and famine.

That's why I want to study


What! Samaj...

That's sociology, sir.

-Of course, Samaj is sociology.



That's why I chose sociology

to understand the reasons

behind the poverty in my village.

Bihar is in a mess today.

It wasn't always like this.

Bihar had a rich heritage.

One of the ancient universities

of the world.

Nalanda University. It's in Bihar.

Goddess Sita, Guru Gobind Singh,

Chandragupta Maurya, Shershah Suri,

Ashoka and Gautam Buddha.

Where do they all come from?

Bihar, sir.

I agree that the last few decades

haven't been great for us.

There are many people like my mother

who are working tirelessly

for the society.

I want to work with them,

so that no one can ask us the kind

of question you just asked me.

Please don't mind me saying this.

Would you choose a sensible student...

...or a student who speaks

a foreign language fluently?

Thank you.

Mom, I think I should return

without giving the sport tryouts.

Why do you sound so disheartened?

Your interview went well.

No, mom, there is a lot of emphasis

on speaking in English.

Everything about this place

screams English.

Remember, you are the Prince of Simrao.

Don't forget the circumstances

you grew up with.

Remember what I taught you.

Never give up. You must conquer defeat!

There should be a reason to stay back.

You have to find that reason.

Don't let your head

rule over your heart.

Once your heart finds a reason,

the entire universe will conspire

to help you.

Yes, mom.

Such a beautiful girl

is playing basketball!

Man, she speaks English so fluently!

I mean, she can give an Englishman

a run for his money.

I've decided I'd speak to her

at least once in my lifetime.

Madhav, talk to her in English.

Are you scared? Say something.

You're a good player. You should shoot.

If you play, you might lose.

But if you run away,

you'll surely lose.

Riya Somani!

Those two girls are strong players.

They'll help. Your aim is perfect.

You must shoot.

Riya Somani!

Riya! Riya! Riya!

Are you going to play in that?

This is a trial, not a joke.

-She is asking you whether you...

-I know what she is asking.

I am Madhav Jha.

I got a reason to stay back, mom.

Wait and watch how I defeat failure.

Vikram, pass the ball.

I'll show you.

Every time I look into your eyes

I try to find myself in them
