Karan Arjun

Synopsis: When Durga's husband speaks out against the tyrannical rule of his brother, Durjan Singh, he is mercilessly killed, and Durga and her two children, Karan and Arjun, are left destitute. Durga brings up her sons without informing them of their heritage nor of the death of their father, but they soon find out when the elder Thakur decides to invite Durga back into his household. This does not auger well with Durjan Singh, and he has the elder Thakur killed. When he finds out about Durga, he goes to end her life, but her sons spring up to defend her, only to get themselves killed. Alone, destitute more than ever, and devastated, Durga loses her mind, and prays to God to bring her sons back so that they can avenge her humiliation, and the death of their father. Seventeen years later, two youth re-enter her life, they do look like her sons, and are ready to take on Durjan Singh, but will they also meet the same fate as Karan, Arjun, and their father?

Faith which makes

the impossible happen.

Faith that renders

the impossible possible.

This is one such story

bound by the chords of faith.

Here is Rs.10... Hey!

Where are you going?

Give me the extortion money

or I'll have you sacked!

Keep some money or you

will lose your job.

Put it in there.

Karan Singh and Arjun Singh,

put my extortion money.

- Don't cut our money today.

- What is so special today?

- That is a secret.

- What secret?

- We'll tell you later.

- Don't cut Rs.2.

Keep the entire

day's wage tomorrow.

Is that so? I trust you

because you are Durga's sons.

But don't go back on

your word tomorrow.

Rs.20 for me tomorrow!

Father, it is Sunday tomorrow.

It is a holiday.


Have you sprung from

the skies, buddy?

Never mind that. Just tell me

how much the bangles are worth.

Why must you buy bangles?

Don't bother about that. Just tell

us how much the bangles cost.

- Show me that.

- No. This green one.

- These red bangles.

- These golden ones.

- These colorful ones.

- They're indeed beautiful.

- I win, right Mom?

- No! I've won!

You win or lose in

a contest, my sons.

And it's only

enemies who compete.

- I touched your feet first.

- No! I did!

- I did...!

- Stop it.

You're still racing

against each other!

Neither are you ahead...

nor are you trailing.

But my sons are ahead

of everyone else!

- We've got something for you.

- What is it?

- First shut your eyes.

- What for?

- Close your eyes! Go on!

- All right.

Open your eyes now.

You will wear bangles now,

like other women in the village.

We just can't bear to see

your hands so bare.

Extend your hand, mom.

Come on, mom.

No! I can't wear those bangles.

Why not?

I can't wear bangles

at my age, silly boys.

I understand, mom!

She'll wear the bangles only

when Dad returns from the city.

- That's true, isn't it?

- It's so many years already.

He would've returned,

had he wished to.

- He has forgotten us!

- There's no word from him at all.

And you're always waiting for him!

Let's go and return

the bangles. Come on.

No... wait!

Give me those bangles...

give them to me.

I will give these

bangles to your wives.

- But they were meant to...

- Go and bathe quickly.

We've got to visit

the temple.

- Greetings, madam.

- The accountant? You?

I've managed to reach here

with great difficulty.

Had someone seen me come here,

my life would be in danger.

But what brings you here

so late in the night?

The elder Thakur has

summoned you to the mansion.

Which mansion?

The one that shut the doors

on our good-fortune?

The mansion, whose wounds are

still raw in the heart?

Go away. I will never step

inside that mansion.

Fulfilling a dying

man's last desire...

...is considered to be

the greatest of noble deeds.

What? Is the landlord...?

Yes. The landlord is

breathing his last.

His last wish is to see you.

But so long as the cursed Durjan

Singh casts his shadow there...

How can I go there?

Tomorrow's the festival

of Goddess Kali.

Durjan, with his brothers-in-law,

Nahar and Shamsher Singh...

...will be at the temple with

their families.

I will wait for you

outside the mansion.

- Please be there.

- Very well.

- Who was that man?

- And who's the old landlord?

I have kept a secret

from you for many years.

How was I to know that time

would one day stoke its fires?

It's the story of my life...

...which I have always

kept a secret from you.

But I will have to tell

you the truth today.

I will tell you everything.

The old landlord is

your grandfather.

- What?!

- Our grandfather? The landlord?!
