Private Detective: Two Plus Two Plus One

Synopsis: An urban contemporary film about adultery, murder and betrayal in the film noir style. A simple story to which the director imparts a feeling of unrest and disquiet, catching the city in its various moods. The film breaks generic conventions, notably in the presentation of the private detective through his deglamourised life and his process of discovery of 'who did it'. It is not constructed through his point of view at all. In fact the policeman and the detective, the fact finders, are in the dark about the crime, to the very end.
Genre: Mystery

You killed the plant finally

I told you so often

to water it every day

You're an ass.

- Raj...

"hurry up, or you'll be late"

One more

How much?

- Six bucks each

Two bucks less?

- Ten is enough

"Honey, wait"

How'll I survive without you?

Push it

Such a weakling

She betrayed me again.

- Why don't you get it repaired?

You do that.

I'm getting late

I told you

to get that rose from Preeti

"To Bombay VT?

- It's already hired, sir"

"Sir, the balance amount?

- I paid you a tenner"

Get lost

Hello there

"Get up, hurry"

Follow that car

Turn around

Doesn't get any faster?

Hurry up

Faster. Overtake it

"She looks very decent, sir"

I don't think

she can do something wrong

"If anything,

blame it on her good looks"

Move it

We might lose her

Close in

Turn left

I can sense mockery behind love

It's a devious

and treacherous world

I'm not one of them.

I'm merely a spectator

They fall in love

while I bemoan

They conspire

while I take the risks

Either I join them or I differ

... depends on the need

"Lovely, isn't it?"


- Shall we go home?

Let's go

Purple color.

- Which one?

"The long one.

- Not that, Meghna"

Why not?

It'll look nice on me

But that's not for sale.

- I've seen it in your house

Take Harish out for shopping.

- Amrita! Listen...

Want me to tell him?

- Shut up and listen

"I'll wear flowers in my hair,

for the disco"

A long dress and a rose in my hair.

- Not a long dress

"All right, a mini dress

and a rose in my hair"

Raj will love it.

- Shut up

Naughty girl.

- But I'll handle Raj

Nice color

Not bad.

- Look at this

How about this?

Nice. Can I try it?

- You will be charged for that

How much?

- I'll dig Harish's pocket

You won't find him.

He's hardly seen these days


(Chacha - Uncle)



That's a mantra

Pick up something

for a quick prediction

You picked a blue dress

with your left hand

Your man... loves his woman dearly

But you need him badly

"My turn, uncle"

Leather... triangular

You don't need anyone

You are happy all by yourself

But everyone needs you

Wear this

This gemstone needs

the warmth of your body

A ring for me?

Your man is still

under your control

Which one?

Do you use this

to drive thieves away?

How did you enter?

Through the binocular

Let's see your face

Why does the daylight fade away?

Why not meet at nights?

The nights are beautiful

But you are really brutal

at nights

"Mr. Universe has left,

so I'd better leave now"

Are you through?

Are you leaving?

"I don't intend to,

but my job makes me helpless"

There are many more open windows.

I'll be back

You're welcome

In the last three days...

the two of them met twice...

I've been staying at a rented flat

since last three months

"Here's the estate agent's

visiting card, and these are... "

the photographs

He's about 27-28 years old

Six feet tall

Drives a white Gypsy

"The license number is MH 02751,

I guess"

What happened?

You know him?

It's always

the person you know who...!

But you can't help it. Bad times


the women of today!"

They have tasted flesh

You can get over it.

No big deal

"If you say,

I'll trace his house"

Shall I fix him?

- That's my job

I even take up divorce cases

These photographs will help.

- That won't be necessary

Your charges...

and drop dead

Wonder what your wife

found in him

What pleasure does she derive

by making you miserable?

I'm not dieting

But I just can't eat

non-vegetarian stuff

I see

You do cook with pleasure though.

- That's for you...

and your friends
