Agastya! Do you remember

what day is today?

So far from Earth.

What difference does that make?

Whether it Monday or Friday...

every day is the same to us.

No stupid! Remember, exactly an year ago,

Yeah! He is an old friend of mine.

No. From Mumbai, India.

From India? -Yeah.

Well, what exactly are you trying to do..

Well. Now that you have a

couple of hours before..

Bonnet? Get out! Get out!

No need to hide your laughter, dear.

Very soon these tears of happiness..

...are going to be converted

into tears of sorrow.


A notice had come today in the morning.

Of Piya's lawyer.

A year ago Mr. Suhan Kapoor and

Ms. Piya Goyal had divorced.

The court had declared that

every month on the 1st..

...the husband Suhan Kapoor

will send a cheque of 25,000..

...as alimony to his wife Piya Goyal.

But even after a year Suhan Kapoor..

...has not sent even a single cheque of

alimony to Piya Goyal.

Because of Suhan Kapoor's

carelessness Piya Goyal..

...had to undergo tremendous financial,

physical and mental stress.

Because it has been proved

that Piya Goyal..

...can't depend on Suhan Kapoor every month..

...so Piya Goyal demands

a one time settlement"

...of 50 lakhs as an alimony

from Suhan Kapoor.

50 lakhs!

You have one month's time to

repay the settlement amount.

Suhan! Suhan! Suhan!

Catch the ball!


I had heard that poison is

used to treat poison.

But shock is used to treat shock..

...I am seeing it for the first time.

50 lakhs! Uncle,

from where will I get 50 lakhs?

I don't have enough money to even pay..

...the telephone and electricity bill.

I have not paid my house rent

for the past 3 months.

This has no connection with the law.

Law had decided the amount.

And you have not paid

a single penny to Piya.

But uncle, Piya doesn't need money.

I don't have work.

She should be giving me the alimony.

But when you got divorced,

at that time you had work..

...and Piya had no work.

Correct! Correct!

But now the tables have turned.

She has work.

That too in New York.

She is earning in dollars.

Uncle, I have no work.

So we have to go to the court

and re-evaluate this case.

And you will have to get me

the alimony. Correct.

Really? How much?

I think 50,000 per month is fine.

50,000! I will strangulate you!

Why? You didn't like my idea?

Not at all! At least some time

take your work seriously.

This is a court case.

You have not given a single penny..
