One of those rare countries

that's below sea level.

And the weight of you tourists

is bearing it down further.

Look to your right. So they had

to build these windmills...

that pump out water

from the fields.

If I face you and say

right, it means your left.

When I turn my back to you, my

left and your left are in synch.

Any questions? I can

give you any info...

except for star Deepika

Padukone's cell number.

Like her?

Want a picture of you

and the windmill?

Before our long bus trip,

I can pee for you too.

Only for you, Sarlaben.

All good?

Seventeen! Seventeen and a half.

Eighteen and a half.

The past has faded from memory.

The present is where I live.

I travel on. Who knows

where I'm heading.

Where am I?

Faith let me believe...

that the world is good.

And those I meet on the way...

who walk with me for a while...

are good people too. I know.

Just a little cross...

that drifting traveler...

was from my village.

That old path...

whose memories I

could not escape.

My home shed tears without me.

I have a nagging fear...

that I no longer

belong to my home.

I'm a man journey has chosen.

Neither from here

nor from there.

I'm a man journey has chosen.

Neither from here

nor from there.

I'm a man journey has chosen.

That's me.

That's me.

That's me.

I befriend milestones.

The road knows me by my gait.

Every day...

the world feels

the same every day.

I sell cities to

people of leisure.

I leave empty-handed, I

return empty-handed.

Every day...

I'm becoming a

stranger to myself.

When I turned from

village to city...

turning bitter, like poison.

Every day...

I wish it could

have been different.

This age, this time, this

road keeps passing by.

I'm a man journey has chosen.

That's me.

You lot are the most

ungrateful wretches. Get lost!

Eat as many theplas, dhoklas

and fafdas as you want.

But get out of my face.

Curses on you!

- Your phone isn't working?

- Why?

I lost my ring.

I was engaged on this trip. The

ring my fianc gave me is lost.

- You'll miss your flight.

- I know.

I can't leave without my ring.

I tell you what...

Send an email to


Describe your ring and

explain where you lost it.

Send them your address.

- I know where the ring is.

- Where?

It's in the Amsterdam hotel

where you put us up.

No problem! Run!

Catch your flight.

I'll tell them you're coming.

I won't change my mind, boss.

Not going without my ring.

No point staying, ma'am.

Hello... Flight status? 9W231.

Let's go to the hotel.

Unfortunately, ma'am, I'm

headed the other way.

No worries. I'll get you a taxi.

How generous! A taxi!

You're coming with me.

No way, ma'am.

You can't order

me about anymore.

The tour is over.

Talk to me politely.

So two-faced! Tour's over so

you show your true colours.

It's just that you folk don't

consider others like humans.

Aren't I human too? How

can I travel all alone?

Where's the loving fianc?

We fought. I told him

I lost the ring.

He's gone?

The ring belonged to his family.

He got upset and said:

"It's a sign that you don't care.

Wedding cancelled." Cool!

I tore up the boarding pass and

said I'd return with the ring.

Has your family left too?

You mean half my family?

They let you stay alone?

I'm a modern woman.

"Let me?" Meaning?

I told my Dad I knew

where the ring was.

His flight hasn't taken off.

Call him, say you're with me.

But I am not.

I'm trying to explain.

I have another booking.

I must go.

I'll pay you. How much?

It's not always about money.

It's always about money.

What's your daily rate?

Ma'am, I can't come with you.

Please understand.

And I am sorry.

No, I'm sorry.

I have no option. I

can't let you go.

So, I am sorry.

Your bag...

See? It's always about money!

Shall we go?

Want the volume up?

I don't mind.

You want it higher?

I don't understand the words.

What language is it?


I learned French

till 7th standard.

- I'll get you on tomorrow's flight.

- We find the ring first.

- You know where it is?

- It must be there.

There? Where?

I told you many times the

ring fell off my finger.

So you know where it fell?


In the restaurant where

my engagement took place.

In the restaurant?

It was a romantic engagement, so

it happened in the restaurant.

You said it fell in the hotel.

The hotel restaurant,

where we ate last night.

So it fell in the restaurant

where you got engaged?

Better in the car, no?

I swear.

I'm hiring a car like this

on our honeymoon. Open top!

I have to find that ring. God!

This Amsterdam, is it in France?


Why is this song French?

I don't know.

"My beloved, my sweetheart."

My romantic engagement

took place here.

He sat there, I sat here.

Sailesh, Nimesh and

his wife were here.

And... what's his name?

Is the name so important?

Ok. So your family were cozy

at your romantic engagement.

So where did the ring fall?

I'm thinking! No need for sarcasm.

It was very romantic.

He came up to me. Went

down on his knees.

I gave him my hand. He put the ring on.

I reacted, wow!

Then everyone clapped.

They asked me to show

them the ring and I did.

The ring was loose.

Bhabhi said we'd get it fixed in India.

It must be here.

They've cleaned the place. The

staff have found nothing.

It slipped off right here.

I remember.

You remember? But it

was only last night.

- We came here the last time too.

- What?

We first landed in Amsterdam.

You brought us here.

We had dinner and the

engagement took place.

- What are you doing?

- Booking tonight's flight.

Not going without the ring.

It's high season.

Where will you stay?

Do as you please. Live or die.

What's it to me?

Ma'am, I'm off.

- I paid you for the day.

- So...

Let's sit and relax.

Some coffee? Don't worry.

It's my treat.

I don't drink coffee.

Too much caffeine.

Espresso, please. One.

You know what?

In the middle of

your nonsense...

I remembered where my ring fell.

- Know where?

- I'm sure you'll tell me.

The ship? The day trip?

We went to a cheese factory and

an art museum. That's where!

I have a photo on my iPad.

Thank God I remembered. The

ring didn't fall here.

Sorry. Let's go.

What's your name, ma'am?

Didn't Rupen tell you?

But Rupen isn't here. So you'll

have to tell me your name.

Your name?

Sejal. And Sejal means...

The meaning is irrelevant.

Sejal will do.

No need for you to

pay me for today.

Hey, all the best.

- So you won't cooperate?

- No way!

I'll complain.

I'll check your card.

Ma'am! Is this fair?

It's absolutely fair.

You have a split personality.

You fooled me. I will complain.

Please understand.

I was booked for your tour.

I have another booking.

- What booking?

- My business.

That's an excuse.

Yes, it's an excuse.

I've stood at attention for

a month for your group.

Ticket, bus, train, phone,

Indian food, sanitary napkins...

What's another day?

Why not spend a month looking

for your ring in every city?
