I never imagined you would come.

How did you manage? - Don't ask.

I made an excuse that it's

a college educational tour.

Yet, dad was reluctant.

But somehow I managed

to convince him.

Trust me. It's a really nice place.

Really? - Yeah.

Wow! It's beautiful.

Now do you see"

...why I was saying

no for Lonavla and Khandala?

Whose property is this?

Nikhil. - Who?

Saby's friend Nikhil.

It's his uncle's property.

They come here sometimes on a holiday.

The entire property?

No. Only up till here.

The property on the

other side of the fence..

"Belongs to someone else.

Some Casablanca.

By the way not a bad choice.

Sometimes dad's expectations scare me.

You know.

He was the best

footballer of his time.

He was the striker for Churchill Club.


When his dad passed away"

The family responsibility.

He had to leave everything.

...and take up a job in a bank.

But you should see

the glow on his face"

...when he sees me play.

Do you know,

I can do anything for papa.

I just want to see him happy.

I owe him that much.

If he hadn't adopted me..

I don't know where I would be.

Can I ask you something?

Just promise me you won't say no.


Will you please swim

with me in that lake?

I can't believe I lied at home,

put up a scene" come with a duffer like you.

I am done.

I'm super tired.

Come on. Don't be a spoil-span.

I'll see you inside, okay.

Come on.

Come back.

Come fast.

You will miss me.

Let us pray. Lord Jesus Christ.

The three days you laid in the tomb.

You made holy the graves

of all those who believed in you.

And even though their

bodies lay in the earth..

...they trust that they,

like you will rise again.

Given our sister Pearl

rests in this grave.

Until that you,

the resurrection and the life..

...will raise her up in glory.

There she may be in the light

of your presence, Lord Jesus.

And the kingdom where

you live forever and ever.


Since Almighty God

called our sister Pearl..

...from this life to himself.

We commit her body to the

earth from which it was made.

Christ was the first

to rise from the dead.

And we know that He will

raise up our mortal bodies" be like his in glory.

We commend our sister

Pearl to the Lord.

May the Lord receive

her into His peace"

...and raise up her body

from the last day.

Wouldn't this Christmas

tree look better..

...If we put up lights?

Yes, Prakash.

- Hi, John. How's it going?

Good. How are you?

As usual, cooking.

Cooking up stories. - Good morning.

I called to remind you..

- Hi, Prakash.

Remember about this evening? - What?

What about this evening?

It's my wedding anniversary,

you forgot again.

No, no, no..

I remember. I do.

I can tell that you do.

Look, John. No ditching this time.

You and Maria have to come.

- Yeah, we will try.

There's no trying.

Come on.

We haven't met for so long.

You guys are coming, sharp 8 o'clock.

That's it.


Some relations are so strange.

Can't believe they have survived

25 years with all their fights

Today's their anniversary.

They've invited us.

Maria, I think we should go.

I think we should go.

I really think we should go.


Maria, please.

Don't do this to yourself.

It's been two years,

you haven't stepped out of home.

You never meet anyone.

Come on, let's go over to Prakash's.

Maybe you will feel better.

I had a dream last night.

The same one again.

It was my fault.

It was my fault. - Come on.

I shouldn't have let her go.

- Come on.

I am so sorry.

I am so sorry.

How long are you going

to torture yourself like this?
