Yes tell me.

- Don't leave the house


Your stay in Kolkata... probably over.

Severe unrest all over Kolkata

Chaos in Moulali, Mallikbazar,

Ripon Street, Beniapukur!

Police forced to use tear gas, bullets

as angry mobs set fire to the city.

Fundamentalists fuel the rampage.

Section 144 implemented.

Enemy of religion!

Leave Kolkata

Enemy of religion!

Leave Kolkata

You don't want writers to think..

...or write...

...or live.

Hasn't religion spoken of tolerance?

This is no revolution!

This is nonsense!

This is mindless nonsense.

I have nothing else to say

about today,A6s incident.

These are the words of fanatics

Political action political reaction

and political rhetoric...

...affect the psyche of the common man..

BOU (wife)

The common man does not have the

political awareness to deal with it.

The situation went out of control.

Such news is ashed all

over by the media and...

This is very shameful

for our city...

...and for us Bengalis.

Who are you to say whose

visa should be cancelled?!

India is home to Hindus,

Muslims Jains Sikhs...

India is not a religious state.

So we should have been more careful.

What we need to do now

is to keep calm...

Just one more question, Vikram!

Can she really be forced

to leave the city?

I have no such information.

Kolkata... the city of Literature and An.

Such an incident, here, involving a writer!

Mob fury.

And her reaction?

In my opinion, she

should not be disturbed now.

And... excuse me!

And I hope our media

sympathizes with her situation


Is your connection with her

professional or personal?

She's a friend

Excuse me.

It is evident Ambarish, no

one is divulging details.

But still, friends like the esteemed

entrepreneur, Vikram Ehsaas...

...bureaucrats have

been visiting her all day.

'With Shyamal De on the camera,

this is Ritwik, TV Kolkata.

If an individual or a community disapproves of

any written material, there may be protests

Isn't Baaghini a wild cat?

Feeding on raw fish!

Our democracy recognizes

Freedom of Speech

You must understand what's

going on! Just switch on the TV.

Burning vehicles on the

road isn't the right way.

Come along.

Come, eat.

There you go.

Good girl.

My Baaghini knows clever tricks!

Your water.

Your water.

I'm sorry.

You'll have to come with us.


The car's ready.

Cover her head.-

- Okay sir. Cover her head.

Be careful.-

- Please cooperate.

Back door.-

- Please!

Please cooperate. Don't worry,

we've arranged for everything

Where am I going?-

- Please calm down.

Where the hell am I going?-

- Come with us!

Kindly, Madam, please!-

- This is not done!

Open that door!-

- There's a spiral staircase!


- Please don't struggle.

It's all so sudden...

Let's go.-

- You'll hurt yourself!

It's dark.

Just be careful.

Vikram, come with me.


Tell me.-

- Do you have her passport?

Flown to Rajasthan overnight.

Immediately shifted to Delhi

under tight security.

Delhi wasn't safe either.

Sources say she's been

sent out of the country.

To an unknown destination

My baby remains with you.

Raw fish and full-cream milk.

Just a few more days...

I'll return.

I surely will.

Gustav is expecting me.

All well?

The area is secure

Theo... we are needed over here.

Lucas Johansson, President

of the Swedish Pen Club.

Welcome to Sweden Ma'am.


This is where you'll be

staying for the time being

This cottage belongs to Mr. Jan Henrik,

presently out of the city.

We have arranged for

24x7 security here.

So, please make yourself comfortable

until Jan gets back

If you need anything... anything

at all... just...

...give me a call at this number.

All international calls have

been barred. Please have a seam.

So... this is your permit in Stockholm.

We need you to sign

at the last page, please.

Sorry Madam, but...

We do find it most unfortunate

that your country disowns you

And that even India has sent you

away so unceremoniously.

See, I'm an author myself

and I know how that would...-

- I deserve it.

Deserve it?

It's the pen and the sword.

The sword always wins.

What's up?


'What's wrong?

Get that thing out of here!

It was sitting on my chest!

And keep this thing tied at night.


- Yes.

You didn't ask for my

consent. Now, deal with it

Or get a nanny for it


A nanny?

My phone..

Come with me

And listen, make sure she doesn't

pee on my school books!

Pritam here.

Hello. Yes hello...

This is Amal Majumder,

the photographer.

We'd like to do a photoshoot.

'With me?-

-No. The cat.

At what time today

would she be free?

After twelve?


Yes... Lucas...


Thank you.

Excuse me.

Can you help me?

I'm very hungry.

Food... I need food.

English no no-

Swedish or Finnish.

I'm hungry.

I need to eat.


She's gone underneath again


She's very fidgety!-

- Come out, honey.-


- Baaghini, come out.

Sir, please request her...

...if she could kindly come

and sit on the sofa.

Face the camera-

- Uncle wants to take a snap, come out.

Behave yourself.

- Always in profile!

Sir, do you have a chocolate

that she might like?


- You surely have milk to lure a cat with?

Yes of course!


Come, I'll give you some milk.

Please get it.

She'll come out as soon as you go.

Very disobedient.-

- Let's see if milk works

Always wriggling!

Tough one, this!

Here you go...

Come out you &%$%$!



I am very scared!

I am scared, Mother!

Mother! Mother!





I am sorry to wake you but-

-it's okay.

You are a superstar in Sweden!

A letter from the Prime Minister:

May I?:



Here it is.

Madam Welcome to Sweden.

The Swedish people have always

honoured the humanist in you.

We assure you the maximum

security in our country...

...and hope to offer you the peace

needed for uninterrupted work.

It would be my pleasure

to meet you in person.

My Personal Secretary will

be in touch with you

May this Land of the Midnight Sun

become your home

A real honour.

A real honour, Madam

What more could one ask for?



Anything that I can eat.

So, Pritam..

Your name's in the newspapers.

You're getting calls from journalists...

You're a celebrity, buddy!

Oh please!

She's your friend!

And you never told us!

Hey Pritam... where is she now?

No idea

She didn't even call.

What chaos!-

- It's expected!

You'll keep writing against my religion...

Am I to sit on an easy

chair sucking my thumb?

Moti, don't get me talking!

That's sheer fanaticism.

Debu, there are fanatics

in every religion. Let go!

I agree!

That's the root of all problems!

Let's have some tea

If this was about Ram or Ramkrishna...

...they'd shove it up your-
