Hello, Paandi! Haven't seen you around

these past two days?

I went jogging at the beach.


Paandi, come eat a couple of idlies?

After jogging, I shall work out, shower

and then eat.

Oh, wow.

Hello, Master!

Thank you for catching that dope dealer.

You've earned us a good name, Master!

I've only done my duty.

Who is this guy?

So cool for his age.

His name is 'Power' Pandian.

He was a great stunt-master

in movies.

He's a famous guy

in our area.

Pack some meat for her, boy.

Look, Master is here.

Give him the meat.

I've packed the usual, Master.

I've also packed liver and

intestines, too. - Thank you!

I've been waiting for so long.

- Wait for your turn!

I turned it on the way you said.

But it suddenly got loud!

I finished a night shift

and just went to sleep, dad.

I need to go back to work

in some time now.

I'm so sleep deprived.

Why are you like this, dad?

We only get to sleep on weekends.

The kids don't have school, either.

Your father has just returned

from a night shoot.

You've woken him up!

He barely gets sleep.

Turn down the volume.

Let him watch.


Little ones! Come to grandpa.


Side punch!

Varun, if you don't study, no meal for you.

- Then I'll starve.

Leave me alone, dad.

I will study later.

You're always playing on your iPhone!

Come down!

Fine, dad!

Stop yelling.

So, Varun.

You're getting the full dose today?

Why won't you just study?

It's not like you're educated.

You're doing alright.

Always playing on your iPad!

You should run and play!

Your body will become fit.

I take my vitamins, man.

I'm fit enough.

In my time, 10-15 of us would get together

and play kabaddi, volley-ball.

We had fit bodies.

I haven't seen you playing even cricket!

When you hit oldage, you people start off your

'Back in my time...' speech.

Go practice your 'dishyoom' now.

Who do you fight anyway?

Go study, boy.

Father-in-law, your scutch-grass juice.

Please take the children to some mall?

I can't handle them on weekends!

You're saying that for two kids?

My mother raised six children!

I was the youngest of them.


Then why did YOU stop after one son?

Double standards, huh?

Get ready now. Let's eat breakfast.

We're just not able to have

a second child.

So what?

We'll just be happy with one child.

It's not that...

When we have many children,

if not one, another son will take care of us.

My son is not like that.

He will take such good care of us, you'll see.

Take them away!

Let's go?

- Yes, let's go!

Father-in-law, your coffee.

I've been seeing for years now...

you're wasting time on this

rusty old motorcycle you never ride!

Someday, I'll take it out for a spin.

What's the problem?

The car won't start.

- Is it?

Man, what have you done?

The car wouldn't start, so I pushed it.

That's my car!


Is this stunt master 'Power' Paandi's house?

Yes, sir.

What is the problem?

What does he care

if someone somewhere sells stuff?

Your kids, huh?

Sweet family.

Don't you want to live in peace?

Ask him to go to temples or something

at this age.

He's an old man.

Why should he do this?

I've done my duty now.

Ask him to take back his complaint.

Or you'll be in trouble.

Let's go.

Go upstairs and bring your grandpa, Dhruv.

What is it?

What have you done now?

Fine, don't just stand there.


You called me, son?

What complaint did you file

at the police station?


They're selling drugs.

In our area!

I can't stay quiet about it!

How is that our problem, dad?

Why can't you just stay out of it?

How could I!
