New York... one of the biggest cities

in the world

Business capital of the world.

Every breath of the city...every

heartbeat is filled with speed

People are always in a hurry here...

in a hurry to leave home...in a hurry

to reach the office...

always in a hurry to be a

step or two ahead of life

There is no place for anyone

who can't cope here

Miles away from lndia, this city

is infested with lndians

In fact they say every fourth face

in Newk is an lndian

One more thing...

Oh... by the way that's me!.

This city taught me

to be independent...

it taught me to fulfill

my responsibilities...

taught me to face life...

...but it couldn't teach me to love...

where was the time?

Whenever I watched the

city from far...

I felt Papa was closer

Whenever I missed him,

I came here

I am Naina Catherine Kapur

and this is my story

I understand Mr.Shah,

but try and understand my problem

I must have the loan extension, please.

I know the restaurant

is centrally situated.

But there's competition

around, Mr. Shah...

My mother, Jennifer.

After Papa passed away...

the entire responsibility

of the family fell on her

But she never allowed us to ever

feel the burden of her sorrows

Thank you...I.

- I'm home.

Where were you?

Central Park

Central Park? Why?

To meet someone.

- Who?

To meet my boyfriend...


Private & confidential.

That's mine.

What is this?

It's Sweetu's mail again

When will the mailman understand

that we are Kapur with a ' U'...

and they are Kapoor with an 'O'?

He always...

Were you crying?

No... you were crying...

No mom.

My mother and l...

We lied to each other everyday

Kunwari kudi

Kunwari kudi marriage bureau,

what's this?

Why don't you ask your grandmother?

It must some new plan

to find you a groom

But I don't want to get married...

Why doesn't Dadi leave me alone?

Why doesn't she just leave?

Mom! Where's she?

It's going to be eight...

Hi Guys, 10 seconds to go.

8 seconds to go.


My grandmother Lajjo...

She had three dreams

One that Newk

becomes a part of Punjab

Two, that I marry a Sardar

and three... that my mother dies

Saraswatiji, Lata, Asha and Usha have

served you with their music for years

But from today Kammo,

Vimmo and l, Lajjo...

Hello! will serve you.

So without delay further we are

going to present you a song

The words are ' Pritam come hither...'

The song is specially requested by

our neighbour, Chaddaji from Queens...

That's very kind of you

Kammo... Vimmo...

Go Lajjo...

Go Lajjo...

Pritam, come hither...

Pritam, come hither...

My sad heart calls out to you...

Pritam, come hither...

Come hither... Come hither...

Dadi!....Stop it.

Oh God! Interrupted our prayers?

Insulted the goddess?

Don't you have any shame?

Don't you have any shame?

Singing 'Come hither'

'Come hither' to Chaddaji?

Who's singing it to Chaddaji?

We are singing ' Pritam, come hither'

What is his first name?

- Pritam....

And what is this?

What? - This.

Wow! Pictures from Kunwari Kudi!

All three of them are so goodlooking

Three? They look

like the same guy

No, no my child...

they are different

Now what is that Kunwari kudi ad?

Hey girl, Hey Girl, hey Girl...

choose your groom and be free

Choose one, two or three

Dadi, I am not interested in marrying

anyone... one two or three

If you don't marry, my child,

how will you have children?

I can have my children.

There's no need to marry

My brother Shiv, a handicap.

He couldn't play basketball

like the other boys...

but he could be quite irritating

like the other boys
