Ratanlal Bagula.


You're in our custody today.

We're going to question you..

...until you don't

give us answers.

Who was she?

How did you know her?

You don't know that

...you're a police

officer yourself?

Tell us...

...how it happened?

Who paid you to do this job?

How were you connected

to that girl?

How were you connected

to that girl?

Sir, this is Satyakam.

Shyam Dada.

JB sir.

How were you connected?



I am the head of

this investigation.

Arun Roy.

And my study is..

...you'll be rotting

behind bars for a long time.

Be sure.

I can help you.

If you...

...help me.


Bagula, I know that the..

...person who shook up

the law and country is a girl.

Her name isn't Sigdi.

Her real name is Kaanchi.

I can see confirmation

in your eyes.


We will catch her, soon.

Be sure of that.

Soon she will be behind bars.

And maybe...she'll face

rigorous punishment.

What difference

does it make, sir?

It won't make a difference

to her if you hang her.

She will just smile.

She's a bh.

Forget it, sir.


I want to know everything.

I want to know the real story.

A petite girl like her

can't do such a big job.

It's impossible.

What's the truth

behind these facts?

How are you

related to Kaanchi?

We're friends.

Since we were kids.

We studied in the same

village, the same school.

She was junior to me.

Seven years ago

I came to Mumbai.

And she grew up there...

in that village.


A village for retired

army soldiers in Uttrakhand.

She was the star

of that place.



How did they get in Kakda

Land without permission?

"The scorching heat,

cooling shade."

"Entire village against

one small girl."

"Wouldn't you want

to know her name?"


"Scorching heat,

cooling shade."

"Entire village versus

one small girl."

"Wouldn't you want

to know her name?"



"You're fragile like glass."

"She's like fire."

"She's a girl

from my country."

"Let the world

know...hello, hi."

"She displays all

the seven colors."

"The entire world's

assessed from her heart."












You played foul.

Get lost.

Why you..



We've to turn this

Koshampa valley..

Into JB Koshampa

city in a year.

World class valley.

And anyone who

causes obstructions

...will be responsible

for his position and life.

Don't you know

who you slapped?

Yes, I know.

He's that scoundrel

inspector Bhagwafis son.

You hurled the trophy

which the MLA presented you.

You're no princess.

What else did you expect?

I was holding the trophy in my hands..

...so that's what

I hurled at him.

You're still arguing with me.

You're a girl still

you abuse people.

What do you expect?

Did you want me to

bow before that rascal?

- Be quiet.

- Don't beat her.

Get her married. Her

in-laws will do the beating.

Get going-

Nirman Singh,

will Kaanchi ever change.

N eve r.


That Deepu

complained to mother?

Yes. To mother.

And he even cried before her.

Kaanchi. Where are you going?

Please spare some change.

Please spare some change.

Hold it!


Did you complain to my mother?

Yes, I did. So?

Why you..

Now go complain to her again

that I slapped you again.

And this is in advance..

...for the next time

you complain to her.

- You'll get it tomorrow.

- That's okay.

Hail Goddess!

She slapped my son,

now watch

...how I sc

her and her family.

Mind your tongue.

Okay, here. See.
