Damn! -

- What?

1st division, direct entry into M. Phil.

No... -

- Please.

Don't tell me you're

having second thoughts again.

Somewhat. -

- I think I'll go mad now.

Graduation in Bengali, M.A. In History,

now what? Mountaineering?

It's only because of you that I'm

here instead of my Dad's business.

Stop flirting, Amit. Listen Maya,

if you want to do Music...

...I think you might as... -

- Miss Firebrand,

Mr. Coward Lee...

Not again!

Let's go to the canteen.

M. Phil in Portuguese studies.

Gujarati by birth. Aspiring Bengali.

Withheld for the time being.

Why don't you complain? -

- Why? What's bugging you?

Moreover I think he is quite cute.

Stop joking. Shut up. -

- Brother, three.

If someone stalks me,

wont I get irritated?

And I know these guys very well.

Mouli has told me...

...typical Gujarati guy with a rich dad.

Weird! Follows me everywhere I go.

Keeps sending messages

through people! Is this a college?

Oh I see! You mean you

would've dated him in college?

This is university, so... -

- Not at all.

Not even during

my pension years.

Yes, true. The bugger's totally crazy.

He was supposed to pass

out four years ago but...

...then he saw her and fell in love.

Then he started with some

Portuguese or Spanish studies...

Excuse me.


I want to... err...

...I needed to speak to you.

Only you. Only you shall I tell.

Shut up.

Tell me.


Not here, if you could come out...

English would be better. I don't

prefer Hindi and you can't speak Bengali.

Sit, I'll be back.

Yellow pants.

Correct decision.

I really don't have time.

And I hate walking.

The thing is... sorry...

...what I wanted to say is...

I mean to say...

...the things is that... -

- The thing is that

you're wasting your time.

Because you're interested in

someone about whom you know nothing.

You don't know her, don't

know her likes and dislikes,

...you can't even

pronounce her name properly.

Just a second, Madam.

You're not letting me speak.

I am a complete Bengali.

I was born in Kolkata.

My father's a chartered accountant.

You're Bengali is

flawed and desperate.

This existential crisis is very

insulting for my mother tongue.

And the city is called Kolkata,

not 'Kolkata'.

Thirdly, I really don't

care if your dad's a...


accountant or a businessman.

We don't have any similarities.

Love is a far cry.

Friendship too won't work.

You have Dhoklas for breakfast

and our plates are aquariums, so...

I like fish too.

In fact Hilsa is my... -

- Eating Hilsa fish makes

you a Bengali?

I read Bengali poetry and

stories too. I read Tagore.

Satyajit Ray? -

- Think you can land...

...a Bengali girl reading

Tagore's translated work, Mr. Lee?

I suggest you get lost.

In translation. -

- Mr. Lee? But I'm Rohit.

Good. Stay whatever you are

and let me remain the way I am.

I know Bengali songs too.

Maybe it's only for you

That I am wildly in love

I know you're unique-

- Wow! You have a very nice voice!

Okay, here's the deal.

First compose a Bengali song about me...

...and then sing it with

proper Bengali pronunciation.

And then, I'll think

about your proposition. Okay?
