Are you a creature of illusion?

Or is illusion your creation?

Are you a part of the body?

Or is the body a part of you?

Is space within the house?

Or the house within space?

Or are both space and the

house within the seeing eye?

Is the eye within the mind?

Or the mind within the eye?

Or are both the eye

and mind within you?

Does sweetness lie in sugar?

Or is sugar in the sweetness?

Or do both sweetness

and sugar lie in the tongue?

Is the tongue within the mind?

Or the mind within the tongue?

Or are both the tongue

and the mind within you?

Does the fragrance lie in the flower?

Or the flower in the fragrance?

Or do both the flower and the

fragrance lie within the nostrils?

I cannot say,

O Lord Adikeshava of Kaginele,

O peerless one,

are all things within you alone?

The patient has been here

for 3 months... Vegetative state

Sometimes we observe brain activity.

He is under continual medication...

...but nothing helps.

This is a ventilator...

to pump oxygen.

He cannot breathe on his own'?

No sir, his life is

controlled by these machines.

Hmmm... If I remove this,

there should be no problem right?

No patient, no case...

Yes sir...

...He will die peacefully.

Poor fellow...

why don't you remove it'?

Are you scared of God?


First it needs to be determined

whether it is a murder or suicide attempt.

This is definitely

a murder attempt sir!

Why would he want to commit suicide?

Even if the investigation leads

to a result, what can the court do?

Euthanasia is banned

in our country anyway right?

If a body cannot survive

without life support...

...the court may allow it.

- Sir...

- Oh, Kempraju, how are you'?

- I am fine sir!

- You are looking very smart!

And yet no one wants to marry me...

Hmm... what is this

new headache?

What is the boss saying?

Sir, I have told him

the investigation is on...

But he is behind some detective.

Have you shown him

the investigation reports?

You know him

he won't bother reading.

Hmm... how is the new detective?

I'm meeting him for

the first time too.

Please come, sir...

Your boss has called me

to a bar early in the morning?

Ask him yourself, Sir!

Please come, Mr. Deepak...

- How are you, sir'?

- Sit down.

Meet Mr. Sanjay from Mumbai Branch.

This is Mr.

Deepak from Crime Branch.

We are working on this case.

Give us some time...

we will come

out with the results.

Don't take this personally...

the minister is under pressure.

In such cases,

a lot of people will lay claims...

this is a very sensitive case.

- OK sir.

- Sanjay, he will brief you about the case.

Please discuss with him.


Does he know Kannada?

I know a little sir...

I have assigned your

old partner to your team.

- Thank you, sir!

- I hope you give me quick results.

Hey! wake up!

Pucchi! I gave you a box that day,

Where is it?

Which box, brother?

The box I gave you

for safekeeping...

That brown box...

Brother, what are you doing?

You dirty fellow!

I asked you to clean up this place!

...Brother, there is nothing

in the box, it's all very dirty...

It's all very dirty...

Don't reveal my name to anyone!

Don't tell anyone what we did!

Take this money and go to hell!

Brother, I too will come with you.

I'll kill you if I spot you again!

Leave this place quickly!

What are you still doing here?

Do you want to die?

Move aside!

Brother, what are you doing?

Kerosene is expensive!

Oh God!


Don't kill yourself brother!

'MW , what happened?

Get up! Make way!

Hey you! Stop!

Do you see this part?

Please read this...
