Hum Tum

Synopsis: Life is not always like the movies. Love isn't always at first sight. Very often, a relationship develops slowly and it takes many years between "boy meets girl" and "boy gets girl".

You and I...

Because I love you

Boys get together and go out

Girls get together and chat

How will we get together?

Deep in my heart, you and I

Daylongs of longings

whenever you're nowhere near

Who all were you with?

So if you love me?

Why didn't you profess your love

and you fought me off?

Now come into my arms

First of all God created the world.

Then he went off to sleep over it...

and He conjured up

a guy and He was glad

So He wanted to dream on and on.

That's when He made

His biggest mistake

He created a Girl.

Which done, He lost his sleep.

So we lost our sleep too. For good

And the world was split

into two halves

girls and guys, like you and I

So what do we do about and I?

Renowned cartoonist Karan Kapoor's

debut novel "Hum-Tum"...

is a national bestseller

First week sales crossed 10,000 copies

with orders of ten thousand more

Karan Kapoor joins the press

in a first look after this grand success

How does a cartoonist turn into author?

Tried cartoons, now I'm trying words,

hoping to understand

...women, someday

Come to grips with that understanding?

Hopefully, after a few more books

And you'll write only on women?

Anything better, more interesting?

Notwithstanding your

digs at girls... - Indeed...

I think your novel is woven around...

your real life experience.

Look... when love is requited...

there's no story left to be told.

A failed romance isn't worth talking

And unrequited love?

True love never goes unrequited

It's consummated, one day or another.

Because life's a long while

Many such romances in your life?

Only one object of romance.

But the romances

she sparked were many


Mamma, enough

- Rhea, stop it

My daughter is going abroad...

Who else in the family ever went?

Who else in our colony? Ever?

I've packed lots of snacks for you

Spiced grams, pickles, sweets

Eat almonds every day,

sharpens your brains

I'll miss you Mamma

I will also, child

Hey gorgeous

Karan, where have you been?

Something forgotten

back in the car? - Yes

Oh car keys

You see...

- Don't even start

I don't care whoever she was.

Who said I was with any girl?

You got the passport, tickets?

Mom I'm going to America. To study.

I think I can take care of myself


Hey brother

Don't hey brother me, okay?

I got your passport, tickets

What would I do without you Mihir?

Grow up, okay?

Sure, Karan grows up someday

Hear that?

Thank God Shalini is in New York.

She'll take care of you

Don't remind me.

- She's your girlfriend

So? Never take girls too seriously

Girls are like buses.

There's one every

two minutes, traffic permitting

I disapprove of your attitude

towards girls.

And I've told you that before Girls...

Are mothers, sisters. I know

But not my sisters

You will learn to show respect to women.

Says who that I don't respect women?

I respect you, I respect Indira Gandhi

Mother Teresa, Mother India, Miss India


Keep Him on your desk.

Lord Ganesha

Thank you for sparing me that melodrama


One minute Rhea...

Mamma enough. I'm off

- Listen

I'll be late for my flight

I'll spank you

if you don't stop right there

Oblations from our Goddess of Succour.

Give it to the poor in America

Never argue, my child.

Do one good deed

then you'll deserve a good turn

My tigress. Bye, wish you

good luck.

Hoist those pants

Yes one minute

Your dad

- Your husband.

I wish you'd

mention him with a smile

Yes, I got the passport

I was thinking, this time for a change

why not holiday with

me in New York?

The way he talked,

I think he misses you
