Mom! There's Dad.

- Not from here, Madam.

- But he's my husband.

- This is for convicts.

Go from there. - Come on.

- l was looking for you, Aarti.

- They've just brought him.

ln handcuffs!

Save him, Mr. Gupta.

- Get a hold on yourself...

- Tell me the truth please.

- He'll be acquitted, won't he?

- Well, l'm trying my best.

Proceed with the case.

This face which shows nothing but

innocence and helplessness now... not a face but a mask,

behind which hides a criminal.

Who doesn't know, that the

late Mr. Ramkrishna Oberoi...

...was a millionaire whose money

was used to build schools... for the homeless and

widows. The accused...

...calls himself a musician. On

the night of 18th December...

...the accused visited the late

Mr. Oberoi with greed on his mind.

But the deceased was aware,

that the accused was...

...wanting to make quick money under

the pretext of a music school.

So he refused him the money.

Thus Mr. Verma, became angry.

When he left the place after

1/2 hour, he left behind...

...not Mr. Oberoi

but his dead body!

The prosecution accused my client

of a crime, which he can't prove.

My Lord, l agree that

on 18th December... client Mr. Verma,

between 8:
30 to 9 p.m. ...

...was in Mr. Oberoi's house.

l also agree that... per the post mortem report

the murder took place around 9 p.m.

But that doesn't prove that my

client is the murderer.

The prosecution has no witness

nor any proof to prove this.

There is a witness! A person

who'll join the missing link.

An eye witness to the murder

of Mr. Oberoi by Mr. Verma here.

l'm Pramod Vasvani.

On the night of 18th December

whatever you saw from your house...

- ...can you tell us about it?

- Yes. As l stood at my window...

...l saw this man here sitting

in Mr. Oberoi's room.

Mr. Oberoi was gesturing with his

hands and shouting something.

- What was he saying?

- l didn't hear due to the distance.

Then this man stood up! And...

- ...he drew a long knife, and...

- What did he do?

Don't be afraid.

State clearly what he did.

- He then stabbed Mr. Oberoi

in the chest! - That's a lie!

- lt's the truth. - No!

l didn't kill anyone. l'm innocent.

Every criminal tried here has

said that he's innocent.

But, the light thrown by the

witnesses and proved facts...

- ...has exposed your crime.

- No, l'm innocent! lnnocent, sir.

The court is adjourned for today.

- Do you want me to lose the case?

- No, l don't mean that. - Then?

l just wanted to tell you that l've

convinced my client, Verma... admit to the crime.

even though he's not guilty.

lf you request life-imprisonment

for him, instead of the gallows.

- An innocent to the gallows...

- lt's very necessary for me!

Take any newspaper. lt has

this case on the front page.

lf he's not hanged, who will

look up to me as a lawyer?

- Listen...

- l'm sorry, but l can't help you.

My dear, you've been with me

in all the battles of my life.

Now, seeing your tears, shall l

think that we've lost this battle?

- No! Not at all.

- You're the only hope for our kids.

- Arun. - Yes?

- Come here.

- Arun. - Yes, Daddy?

- Look son.

Your mother has suffered

a lot because of me.

- Don't make her suffer more.

- l won't, Daddy. - And...

Komal is your younger sister.

Take care of her.

- l will, Daddy.

- l have a lot of hopes in you, son.

What did he say?

He's a very stubborn man.

l told him.

lf he'd just make it into a life

sentence and not the gallows...

...Deepak will admit to the

crime. But even then...

- Even then? Go on...

- Even then he didn't agree.

O Lord! Now what?

Now only God work do

a miracle, so that...

...the man has a change

of heart. Else...

He's hell bent upon sending

your husband to the gallows!

Pleadership is a game of chess.

Known only to a few.

lf l want, l can

get Verma acquitted.

Or even get him sentenced

for 5-10 years in jail.

And also send him to the

gallows if l wish to.

- That's why l paid you

500,000/- for! - l know.

lf he lives, you die!

But who'll snuff his life

out and let you live?

Me! 500,000/- is not

too much for this...

Mom! Where are you going?

Arun... come with me, son.

l don't have any time to

listen to your nonsense.

You WERE my wife! l've sent

all the divorce papers.

And don't worry about the kid

we're both better off without you.

Why are you standing here?

Go and put him to bed. - Yes.

You? Why are you here?

To beg you.

l... you...

Please be a little merciful, sir.

l have...

l have 2 small kids.


...will be very grateful to you.

What can l do? Your lawyer has

no proof, nor any witness.

Can't one be innocent if there

without proof, or a witness?

Then do you want me to lose

this case on your say so?

Not at all. But...

...he's innocent. Punish

him if you want to.

But don't try for the gallows.

You wish to win the case, right?

Give him a life-sentence.

He'll rot in the dungeon,

but he'll be alive at least.

My kids... They won't be

fatherless at least.

No matter how many years pass...

l'll live without him.

But, sir... Not the gallows, please.

Look, l can do nothing.

You better go.

No, Sir... No...

Get up now. Come on...

Look. What was to be, is over.

But there's no need

to get so scared.

You are young. Want to

bring up your kids, eh?

lf you need a job

l'll give it to you.

You understand, don't you?

No, no, no...

Don't think you're helpless.

l'll take care of you.

Rascal! Lecher!

You dared to touch me?

l had come to beg for my

husband's life. And you...

But he's watching from up there.

One day you'll have to

face your bad deeds.

This is a curse of an unhappy woman.

lt will come to pass...

One day this will happen.

You'll beg for mercy!... Beg!

But nobody take pity on you.


l curse you with this!

This is Oberoi speaking.

l hear you met Verma's lawyer.

...and that you're thinking of

a life-term, instead of the gallows.

Your brother's killer, Verma,

will go to the gallows. Period.

Considering all the proof and

the statements of the witnesses...

...this Court sentences Mr. Verma,

for the murder of Mr. Oberoi... per the l.P.C. 302,

to be hung till death.

Do you wish to meet anyone?

Tomorrow morning Deepak

Verma will be hanged!

l've already paid you Rs. 50,000/-

for your statement.

Why lose your temper over it?

l need 50,000/- more.

- You'll get it.

- When? - Tomorrow.

You'll need it!

- Mr. Vaswani? You?

- You, Mrs. Verma?

- Listen...

- Yes, go on.

l lied in the court.

That murder was not committed

by Deepak Verma.

- He didn't, did he?

- He's innocent.

Yes, l know that. Then who

killed Mr. Oberoi?

- That murder was...

- By who?

Did you all hear? Did you

hear what he said?

Did you hear, Madam? He said

my husband is innocent.

That he isn't the murderer.

You all heard what he said?

You all heard it. lf you say

in front of the police...

...that he made this dying

statement my husband will be saved.
