140 min


Bring him alive.


Oh, seems you had an overdose

of free alcohol on the flight.

Hush.. I just had a beer.

Hmm...better watch out if

I don't find iPad in your suitcase.



Son, you look starved.

Oh mom, not again. This is a stock

dialogue of old generation mom's.

Aren't you new generation?

It's time you update

your outdated dialogue.

Don't tease...

- She's become too talkative.

Let's go inside.

Where is Dad?

He is inside.

Since you are coming,

we forced him to take a leave.

Don't you know how he is?

A health inspector who is more concerned

about people's health than his own.

Does Dad ever give

a thought about his age?

Why don't you talk to him?


As if he listens to me.

Of late, he is short tempered.

Mom is right brother.

Any mention of work,

and he gets worked up.

We have given up.

Can you give it a try?

- Hm.

I came here to fix your marriage.

Yes, Murthy speaking.

No, I am not coming today.

I am on leave.

Dad... How many times should

I tell you I am on leave?

This is the only approach

I don't like in you.

Or, you better look into the folder.

Everything is there.

Should I teach you everything?

No, this cannot be appreciated.

No, Do as I say.

I think brother is home.



- It's been so long.

See how America has changed you!

Looks at those biceps.

You look stunning.

My brother has always

been attractive.

Right! You need to

make him understand things.

Morning, Murthy!

Good evening, Sir!

Ah. When did you reach?

Hardly ten minutes back.

How was the journey?

It was comfortable.

How is work?

Not bad, I am enjoying it Dad.

- Ah, very good.

Dad is very boring.

Brother is home after two years.

And, see how he talks!

Surya, he is 100% genuine.

This is all show off that

will last only till her wedding.

Brother, I will give you an earful.

Whatever said, this is too much.

At least Dad could have cared to ask,

'How are you doing?' 'Are you fine?'

Just leave it.

But Mom, what she said is true.


Oh, a brother and

sister of this sort.

I feel like crying.

What is this, a movie?

It's brother who set up

the bomb for this demolition.

Is this what you do?

Isn't it the same thing

that they do in a quarry?

Oh, as if people working

in a quarry pass out of llTs!

This is fully

scientifically calculated.


This is called a

controlled explosion.


If any of the steps

in this goes wrong...

It's not a minor accident

that is bound to happen.

Yeah, right!

He is plain jealous.

Brother, don't bother. You continue.

Don't overdo it. After he leaves,

I'll be the only one around.

Mom, I'm leaving.

Have coffee before you leave.

- No, that's fine.

I have made Banana Fritters.

- Why do you force him?

Keep quiet.

Fritters? Better I take

the kitchen route then.

Mom, your strange ways!

- Mom..

Even I'm fond of fritters.

Sorry, I forgot. I'll just bring it.

See this.

This snap of Prakash is

better than the one you shared.

He looked chubby in that pic.

He always had a few extra pounds.

He became leaner soon

after deciding to get married.

Aren't you happy, girl?

Why do you ask?

Nothing much.

Something on your face

tells me you are unhappy.

Don't you like him?

No, not that.


Then, there is something.

Whatever it is, you tell me.

Such a good proposal, and so quick.

Just a bit concerned

if Dad is tensed about it.

Isn't getting a good proposal

a matter of joy for all?

I doubt if Dad was

prepared for all this.

It's also to meet such family

needs that I am slogging in the US.

Dad is not going to accept

a single penny of yours.

Don't you know how he is?

That is due to his false pride.

I will take care of that.

Not just that.

Oh...so, are there more issues?


Sorry, you continue.

The very thought about leaving home

and all of you is heartbreaking.

Don't worry, it's not

that we aren't as sad as you.

Prakash mentioned that

he is keen on settling in US.

He is qualified too.

Soon after your marriage,

I will take you both to US.

Before long, Dad, Mom and Aju.


Not very sure about Aju.

He is nuts.

For instance,

he quit his job at Microsoft.

Good that you mentioned.

I was planning to

give him a mouthful.

To be honest, I was shocked

to learn about his decision.

Even we were shocked, brother.

Do you know how

much he was offered ?

Two lakhs.

I agree that two

lakhs is a big amount.

But will money alone

give you happiness?

I don't believe so.

Yes, but don't we need money to live?


but is it necessary that

it is paid by Microsoft?

I am working and

earning in my own way.

Don't you know? I hate bosses.

I don't like it at all.

Here, I'm both the

employee and employer.

I can do what I like,

I can experiment.

That's the freedom I like.

All these MNC's lack it.

Alright, I take back what I said.

How is your new online

software solutions shaping up?

Going good.

But it's not very challenging.

I'm behind something else right now.

Do you know who are the biggest

superstars of IT right now?

White hat hackers.

You know,

defeat the hackers through hacking.

Do you know the fields

we can contribute to, with this?

You know,

right up to national security.

That's my aim.


- Dad.

How many days of leave do you have?

20 days.

Why so?

You are coming home

after a gap of two years.

You could have applied

for a month's leave?

Mom, don't I have to come

home for Aishwarya's marriage?

If I exhaust all the leaves now,

my leave application for

her marriage might be rejected.

Hm, that's better.

It would be really helpful if you

could reach a few days before marriage.

Yes, I will be here.


I am supposed to remind

you about the bank loan.

Bank loan?

Why are we applying for a loan now?

To meet her wedding expenses.

For wedding expenses?


even I'm there.

I'm the bride's father. Not you.

You can pay the internet

bill if you want.

Last month, the bill amount

was more than 5000 bucks.

Whenever I check,

they are always on a video chat.

Dad, don't lie like this.

We don't chat that frequently.


I have limited

knowledge of computers.

But know enough about

'minus'ing a window.

Not 'minus', minimize.

I know enough about minimizing.

Really, whenever I

go near the computer...

...right then,

she minuses the window. - Minimize.

The kids think I don't

understand their games.

When I spoke about the Rs.3500!-

unlimited connection, no one listened.

I'm not a businessman to

spent Rs.3500l- for internet.

...just a government employee.

Tell your dollar earning

brother to spent on all these.

Murthy Sir, Good evening.

Good Evening Sarathy, please come.

Ha.. It seems I came

at the right time.

Subbu, please take one more plate.

Aunty, one plate won't be enough.

I'm not alone.



Sister, please take this seat.

Thank you.

This is Krishnamurthy uncle.

Hi Uncle.

This is Subbalakshmi aunty.

Hello Aunty.

And this, Surya.
