-Fix the display.

-Set up the lights.

Can we hope for the same

gesture of humanity from Pakistan?

Rajesh, I can't say this to the

Indian Army General.

-Simplify it.

-Sir, the General has arrived.

-He's here already?

-Should I ask him to go back?

Turn off the cameras.

No cameras before the show begins.

-Are you in charge here?

-Yes, Sir.

Not anymore.

I'm Brigadier Shekhar Sharma.

General Bakshi's security

is my responsibility.

-Any problem with that?

-Not at all, Sir.


Captain Vikram, Major Abbas.

Over there.

Major Karan, in position.

Come with me.

Sir, the security camera is in position.


-All positions secured?

span style="style.default1"-Yes, Sir. All positions secured./span

Good. Let the show begin.

Ladies and gentlemen,

welcome to span style="style.default1"Jann Manch./span

I'm your host, Rajat Saxena

and today's issue is

Project Milaap...

a historic step or

a historic mistake?

On 15th of August,

our Independence Day,

50 Pakistani prisoners

that were in Indian custody,

will be released at the Indian border.

Let's meet the man

behind Project Milaap.

Please welcome

General Amar Singh Bakshi

the Commander-in-Chief

of the Indian Army.

Sir, we'd first like to

congratulate you...

because the parliament agreed

to Project Milaap this morning.

General Bakshi, do you really

believe that Project Milaap

will lead to a friendship

between India and Pakistan?

It's not so simple.

A chasm of 55 years...

cannot be bridged by

releasing 50 prisoners.

-So, why Project Milaap?

-It's a step to cover the miles.

span style="style.default1"-So according to you.../span

-Station 3, come in. Over.

span style="style.default1"-Station 3 secured, Sir./span


span style="style.default1"Are none of them/span

span style="style.default1"terrorists or ISI agents?/span

If we had any shred of doubt

that they are dangerous to India

we would have never

taken this step.

Most of them are poor villagers

who didn't even know that

they had crossed the border.

After all, the border is

not completely sealed.

They didn't even have weapons

yet they have been in our prisons

for years.

Some, since 1971.

We think it's time to

send them back home.

But not everyone

agrees with you, General.

There are some who want to stop you.

Everyone has the right to

free speech in a democracy.

But speaking isn't

the only thing they want to do.

Sir, I'm talking about Raghavan.

The audience would like to

know who Raghavan is

and is it true that he has

sworn to stop Project Milaap?

Raghavan is an imposter.

He hides his face because

he's ashamed of his identity.

He's a coward.

A terrorist, so used to violence

that he now fears peace.

Project Milaap

will be successful.

The prisoners will definitely

be released on 15th August.

Damn! Backup!

We need backup, immediately!

-Come in.

-Major Ram reporting, Sir.

I'm outside entrance 3.

Major Ram, hold position.

The backup is arriving in two minutes.

Two minutes too late, Sir. I'm going in.

Hello, General.

I'm Raghavan.

I'll ask you the remaining questions.

So, General...

I'm sure Pakistan is also releasing

our poor villagers, right?

That's exactly what I wanted to ask.

When elders speak,

learn to shut up.

So, General, what about

Pakistan's show of goodwill?

We haven't heard

anything from Pakistan yet.

So why are we

being so darn generous?

Because someone has to

take the first step.

If we all behave like you,

there will be no peace.

We've given it a lot of thought.

And we are certain that

Pakistan will reciprocate.


Pakistan is going to laugh at us.

-Because they don't want peace.


Don't the Pakistanis love their children?

You do, General.

You love your daughter a lot, don't you?

Too bad.

She will really miss you, General.

Nobody can save you now.


Easy. Easy now.

You'll be all right, Sharma.

The ambulance is on the way.

I want to speak to my son.










-Was I a good father?

-Now is not the time...

No. No, tell me.

Yes, you're the best

father in the entire world.

-I'm a bad father.


Ram, listen...


There's something

I've always hidden from you.



not my only son.

I have a wife, Madhu.

And a son, Lakshman.

Your step...

Your brother.

I haven't seen him in 20 years.

It's been 20 years since she left me.

Twenty years!

I've lived away from them.

-It's time I pay for my deeds.

-No, Father. Don't say that.


I knew you'll forgive me, Ram.

You have a very big heart.

But until they don't

forgive me, I won't find peace.

My family will remain broken, scattered.

Ram, promise me that you

won't immerse my ashes alone.

Promise me, Ram.

Promise me that both my sons

will perform my last rites.

Where... is father's family?

Son, they left 19 years go.

Because... of me, right?

span style="style.default1"Shekhar, whatever happened/span

span style="style.default1"between us ten years ago;/span

span style="style.default1"I know you consider it as a big mistake./span
