- What?

The temple in uncle's village... much better

than our temple.

Come on, temples are all the same.

You can't compare them.

Come on, you'll get late...

- No, you can!

Because, Vithal is accompanied by

Rakmai at that temple.

Why don't we have that?

That's a really weird story.

Earlier, we used to have

an idol of Rakmai at the temple.

She left, quite suddenly.

- What do you mean?

They say, that our village

lost her favour.

Won't she come back, ever again?

We've waited for her for 15 years.

But she never returned.

What now?

Well, Rakmai (Rukmini) knows,

nobody else does.

Let's go now! You ask

too many questions!

Hey, point!

- Yes?

Do you see the bus?

- No, buddy.

Then, let's go home.

- Bajya, sit down!

Ramya, get me a bottle.

- Yes.

It's the last, one each.

- Give it to me.

Take it!

- ls that all? - Yes.

Bajya, I brought a crate!

Did you see Sunny Leone's video?

Surya, let me see!

Everything looks tiny on

my iPhone.

It's big. - What?

The image.

- Okay!


Want to see Sunny Leone fighting?

- That's okay.

Have a look!

No, it's okay.

- No, have a look!

Point, do you see anything?

Hold it higher.

What the heck!

See if you can see the visitors.

He's always doing all this.

As if you don't?

They won't come today.

Oh, no. I hope

they will be here.

Or Bhushan will be

left stranded like all of us.


That's a really strange wedding


The girl is going to get married

and take the boy away!

It's a wedding party

from the Tekawade village.

The Tekawade village?

- Yes!

They say, they don't have

any girls in the village. - What?

It's been around 15 to 2O


The village hasn't had any

female births. - What?

The girls' school in the

village was closed ages ago.

There are thirty boys in each

class and no girls, whatsoever!

They got rid of the girls.

They abandoned them

at orphanages.

They sent wives back to their

maternal homes for having girls.

Some women even

committed suicide!

That's why the village had

such a terrible reputation...

...that no one wants to marry

their daughters into families here.

Something really strange happened

the other day.

Come on... - It's a girl!

- Hurry!

She's swallowed a lot of water.

- Watch it. Take it easy.

Move aside!

- Step back.

Let her go!

- Watch him!

Hey, get back!

- Move!

Aunt, press it right, okay?

I told you so!

Where am V?

- Tekawade!


- What?

Forget about the girls...

...even the corpses of girls shy

away from the village! - She's gone!

I had to give her

mouth to mouth!

Now, if anyone has the itch to marry,

he lives with his wife's family.

He leaves the village and goes

to another, to be the son-in-law.

So you see, things are

rather complicated at this place.

Here's the bus!

- How did this happen?

Point, sort this out.

The bus is here.

I'll go home.

- You're so drunk!

Let's go.

- I'll open some champagne.

Come on.

- Hurry up.

What is going on?

What's up?

Hello, Bharat Dada.


Why is he here?

He's here, for the same

reason as us.

Oh, no!

- What did he say?

Nothing. The boys wanted to

drink at the bus stop.

Yes. We're here for

Bhushan's wedding.

We have a responsibility as

friends, right? - Yes.

What about me?

- What about it? - What?

No, Bharat Dada, you have to

make a move and do this.


- Do what?

You have to take the initiative.

- Yes.

I've no arguments with that.

Let's go. - Alright, follow us.

Why did you have to do that?

Useless! - Come on!


- Oh!

There's a bus filled with them!

- Yes.

Hello and welcome!
