Wireless crackling

with instructions.

Patil, don't move from there.

Be alert.

Yes, Sir. Okay. Out.

It's always crowded here.

Its okay, Morey.

We have to go straight.

Look at that... you scum!

You get awesome chicken

on the left here.

Don't just pay lip service, Morey.

Get it tomorrow.

Morey, stop here. Ma'am...

Jai Hind, Ma'am.

Yes, Sir.

Yes, Sir. Jai Hind, Sir.

Boss is in a bad mood today.

He's pissed with everyone.

His wife must've screamt at him

Ma'am, his PA was telling me,

he forgot to take his wife

shopping for their anniversary.

She got so upset she cancelled

their dinner reservations.

We can handle the

toughest of criminals easily...

...but when it comes to handling

family, we goof up.

So true, Ma'am.

That's why Morey is

taking the day off tomorrow.

Oh yes. It's your sister-in-law's

wedding on Sunday, right?

Yes, Ma'am.

How is your younger

one studying?

Wonder when she studies!

She's always glued

to the TV or the computer.

That reminds me...


- Hello, Meera.

- Yes, Aunty.

- Done with your revision?

- Of course.

I can hear the TV.

- When are you coming?

- Soon.

- Have you got it?

- What?

Yes, Ma'am.

I was speaking to Jafar.

O kaY-

Better get done with

your revision till I am back.

O Kay; bye'

Have you fed them?

They are getting a royal treatment.

Morey, is feeding them

cheese since the afternoon.

Who told you mice eat cheese, Morey?

I saw it on Tom & Jerry.

These guys love cheese.

Our surveillance team

is already there, right?

I'll confirm, Ma'am.


The baby's crying...

oh my God!

You son of a...

Get up!

Bloody rascal!

Only a mouse can get

another mouse out of his hole.

Ma'am, please don't shoot me.

Please, Ma'am.

We are not going to shoot you.

Please, Ma'am...

I don't have orders to shoot you,

you scum.

I have to take you in alive.

- Jafar...

- Yes, Ma'am.

- Send the rest of the unit inside.

- Yes, Ma'am.

God knows who else is hiding

inside for a threesome.

Get him!

You son of a...

You have dodged us

four times before.

You think we'll let

you escape so easily?

Ma'am, I am warning you.

Ali Bhai will ruin you.

Take him away!

Giving refuge to

rats spreads plague.

Rehman, you should be

thankful to me.

You could at least

make love one last time.

Jafar was all set

to spoil it for you.

You are ragging me,

aren't you, Ma'am?

Sir's call.

- Yes, Sir.

- You got Rehman?

Yes, we are taking

him to the station.

I had ordered you to

get him out and nab him...

...not barge right inside the chawl.

You know how sly Rehman is, Sir.

If we had let him come out

he would definitely have escaped.

We would have arrested

him again if he escaped.

But who would be responsible...

...if a civilian was

killed in a shootout?

We had taken precautions, Sir.

Taking rats along

was your precaution?

Oh, for God's sake, Shivani!

It was a calculated risk, Sir.

Your job is to take orders,

not risks. You understand?

Someone please take

Sir's wife for shopping.

Go home, Ma'am.

Meera has asked you

to come early, right?

If we don't get this

rascal's paperwork right...

...he'll find a loophole

to escape from the law.

No chance, Ma'am.

We'll keep the papers

ready by morning.

You have a look at it.

O kaY-

Sorry, I am late again.

It's okay.

Meera, wake up.

Your Aunty is home.


Happy birthday, sweetheart!

Aunty! You are so late.

Happy birthday, Aunty!

For me?

No, Aunty. I stood first

in the orange belt category.

Wow! Did you show it to mom and dad?


Happy birthday to you...

Happy birthday dear Shivani...
