Synopsis: Jugni (Firefly) is the beat of the soul, the free-flying spirit. Jugni is Vibhavari (Vibs). Vibs is a music director, working on her first big break in the Hindi film industry. When work and home affairs, with her live-in boyfriend Sid hit a high tide, Vibs hits the road with a glint of hope; to find music. The journey takes her to a village in Punjab in the search of a Bibi Saroop, whose voice holds the promise that Vibs is searching for. But as the twist of fate would have it, Mastana, Bibi's son and a proficient singer himself, is the voice and man who winds his way into Vibs' heart. From here on, Jugni is about striking balances, making tough decisions while trying to soften the blows and dealing with the studied dramatic turns and unpredictabilities of life and finding the place which one can call home; home of the heart, where the firefly is at her brightest.

The next train to Punjab.


That's what I am asking.

The reservation window

is over there.

A ticket for the next train. General.

"Flies, she flies, onto a new road."

"Following just her heart."

"Hearing the world as

the tinkling of ankle bells."

"Following just her heart."

"These paths, these people, all insane."

"Ways of wandering like the fakirs."

"Folks welcome with smile."

"Time, they have plenty."

"Just searching... seeking..."


Are you going to Hasanpur?

- Yes we are

Could you hold my bag?

- Why not?

Thank you.

"New routes, new paths new lanes."

"One love, the note and the beat."

"Evening embraces the afternoon, gently."

"One love, the note and the beat."

"The journey exhilarating."

"Its radiance, scented sweet."

"The folks are special."

"Conversations fly."

"One gives direction..."

"...The other is caught in himself."

What does it say?

Bibi Saroop. The singer.

Bibi Saroop. Singer?

Everyone is a singer over here.

They're singers too.

Check them out.

"Just like the flowing water."

"And this perishable world."

"The bond is the one of truth..."

"...That will last forever."

"And this flow..."

"...With passion held so tight..."

"...Is a connection just so true."

"Learnt what it is to be free..."

"...When I stepped out."

"Searching... seeking..."


What do you think?


Two years of body building.

Having a good voice isn't easy.

"Folks welcome with smile."

"Time, they have plenty."

"Just searching... seeking..."


The monkeys took your underwear!

Shut up, you monkeys!

I'll show you.

Excuse me.


Does Bibi Saroop live here?

- Yes


- Is she home?

- No.

She'll be back soon.

Or maybe not.

I don't know her timings.

I am a music producer from Mumbai.

I am here for a film.

From where?

- Mumbai.

The one where

Shahrukh is from?

That's right.

And you are a music director?

- Yes.

God is kind!

You make tunes for films?

- Exactly.

God is kind!

When will Bibi Saroop come home?

She's out for the night.

But don't you worry.

Myself, A-one artist, Mastana.


They call me Master Mastana.

Bibi Saroop is my mother.

Oh. I see.

My singing quality is the best.

Hear me once. I'm sure you

won't be disappointed.

Please sit, I'll be back.

God is very kind!

"Catch a glimpse of my expensive underwear."

"Take my liver and

kidney free with my heart."

"Take me to Vancouver or Sydney."

"Take my liver and

kidney free with my heart."

"Take me to Vancouver or Sydney."

"Take my liver and

kidney free with my heart."

"Take me to Vancouver or Sydney."

What a voice.

You sing really well.

No need to mention. Thank you.

Let me show you. Programme bookings

for every week.

I set the stage on fire.

I shouldn't say it,

but I'm the best.

But nobody appreciates talent over here.

Now that you're here,

I might get lucky.

Fantastic! This Sydney-kidney,

what kind of song is this?

You got it wrong.

Weddings, birthdays, tributes

or insults... you pay, I sing.

I hear that your mother sings

Punjabi Sufiana qalam.

Baba Bulle Shah too.


She does. I sing that too.

Really? Sing something.

Baba Bulle Shah?

"I will go."

"I will go."

Give me a minute.

Where is it?

Let's start.

"I will go."

"I will go with the wandering fakir."

"I will go with the wandering fakir."

"Wearing the long earrings."

"Wearing the long earrings."

"And a tilak on my forehead."

"I will go with the wandering fakir."

"I will go with the wandering fakir."

"I will go with the wandering fakir."

What's going on?

Go! Go away.

Come, let's go.

Let's go.

Who's she?

Let me drop you.

One second. Drop me where?

Wherever you like.

I came here

straight from the station.

I get it.

There's a solution to every problem.

Any hotel or guest house nearby?

The hotels are all in town and no

guest houses here.



I have a small place. A hut.

You can stay there if you like.

It's basic, but peaceful. Up to you.

Sounds good. I'll stay for a night.

No. Stay as long as you like.

Hotels don't have the same feel.

As they say, home is home.


...I'm really grateful.

Grate-full is not necessary.

Half is enough for me.

Let's go.

All set?


The jungle water is over there.

- Jungle water?

Toilets were called jungle water earlier.

Now there's no jungle or water.

Rest now. I better leave.

- Ok



Raga Puriya Dhanashri

is not for everyone.

My number.

Oh! Ok.

I'll go.

Thank you.

- Mastana.

- Yes?

Who was that lady?


The one we ran away from.

There are many ladies

over here.

It was your mother, Bibi Saroop.

Why didn't you introduce me?

She is not Madonna. You can meet her


She was drunk.


May I ask you something?


I want the truth.

My voice... is it good?

Your voice is very special.

I'd like to record you.

And Bibi as well.

Good night.

Good night

Sid, you scared me.

Let me scare you some more.

I have to work.

Why do you always

say the guy's line?

Is it only men who work?

- That's not what I meant.

- You didn't?

Tell me the truth.

Do you really have to work?

Or you aren't in a good mood

as usual?


Look at it.

You work all the time

but nothing gets done.

That's unfair.

Ok, listen.

I'm sorry.

I had a bad day at the shoot.


Let's try some other work.

Sid, please don't.

Sorry, but don't.

What are you doing?

What's going on?

Why is it always "don't" with you?

What's going on?

- Let's not go there.

- No, let's go there.

Tell me.

- What's your problem?

- I don't know Sid.

My music isn't working.

I played tons of stuff to Nishant. He

doesn't like any of it. I don't get it.

I don't get it Vibs. We fight more

than we talk.

We don't do anything together anymore.

What's going on?

Sid, please.

Leave me alone. Please.


You don't deserve these.

God damn it!

Where were you yesterday?

Why are you all dressed up?

Why are you pushing me?

You're such a pain. Speak softly.

Can I speak?


A guest from Mumbai.

A friend actually.

A friend? From Mumbai?

And I don't know.

She's here to record me.

She makes music for the film.

- Have you been drinking?

- I swear.

From Mumbai?

And she's here to meet you?

Absolutely. She came looking for Bibi.

But when I sang, she

forgot all about Bibi.

She said, "Mastana,

I'll only record you."

Record you? That's great!

Yes, my love.You see I'm blessed.

I'm also the best.

Let's go.

- Preeto.

- What?

I thought, rather than

her wandering about, why not--

Why not what?

Why not offer our

guest, a place to stay?

Oh God! Such a caring heart.


My heart cares for you, my love.

But you don't understand my feelings.

You are my special case.

My precious bottle of wine.

"I stand under a shower of love."

"I have fought the whole world for you."

"Do I deserve your taunts?"

"I have fought the whole world for you."

That was beautiful.

Since when have you been singing?
