It's been 46 years now

since the three defense forces of our country came together

and won a war against Pakistan, in 1971.

And severed a part of Pakistan away from it.

Those senior officers who have witnessed that war

can never forget the sacrifices of that time.

Not just the ones who fought the war...

...but even those who were miles away from the front...

...helping our forces.

The brave agents of our Intelligence Bureau.

Their glorious feats are still fresh in my mind.

Among them, was a 20-year-old girl...

...who crossed all imaginable limits!

The struggle for liberation is gaining momentum in East Pakistan.

The leader of their secret army is this man.

Colonel Usmani.

What are their intentions?

Mujib-ur-Rehman has managed to gather a group of people

who now call themselves the 'Mukti' Army.

'Mukti' meaning Freedom!

And this man is...

Khalid Mir.

We need to keep a strict vigilance on him.

He's a high-ranking officer in the Indian Intelligence Bureau.

Can I get you something, Sir?

Brigadier Sir will be out soon.

My dear friend!


Thank you.


Your last information on our rogue officer Rusul Amin

was absolutely correct.

That traitor has quit the Pakistani Navy

and joined the 'Mukti Army'.

Get me some more information from your informer.

What kind of information?

India is helping Mujib-ur-Rehman

to fulfill his dreams of liberation.

We need to know what they are planning.

If India tries to interfere in our internal matters...

...they will pay dearly for their interference.

I'm going back to Kashmir today.

I'll try to find out all I can, as soon as I get back.

May God bless you with success.

And may your brotherhood with Pakistan always remain!

Always, brother Syed... always!

Now, if there's anything I can do for you...

Syed... - Yes...

I have a small wish...

which could be a request as well. - Yes.

The thing is...

there is a tumor in my lung.

I have never smoked a cigarette.

Maybe I got too high on life.


I am no doctor...

But, if as a friend I could be of any help,

please let me know.

I don't know what to say, Hidayat.

I can't fathom what you have just said.

Spying for India...

...and maintaining contacts in Pakistan is one thing.

But an innocent girl, who knows nothing about spying...

She's your daughter, Hidayat.

She is an Indian first.

You don't know how crucial this time is for India.

And how dangerous it can get.

They have got a whiff of India's involvement in Bengal.

And they will not tolerate it.

They will never let Pakistan break apart.

They are hatching a big scheme against us.

What kind of scheme?

Mir Sahab, if I knew that...

...would I risk my daughter's life?

They have a lot of faith in me...

...which they can only have in my daughter, after me.

But, Hidayat...

I hope you will stay for lunch?

Not today...

There is an urgent Bureau meeting in Delhi.

I will be leaving soon.

Then I'll send some dry-fruits.

Make sure he eats.

The strongest intentions fall weak on an empty stomach.

What does Teji think?

She thinks you should have lunch with us.

And did you ask Sehmat?

Did my father ask me?

He simply informed me.

And taught me. - Have you told your daughter...

...about the future you are planning for her?

I will...

I will tell her, and you will teach her.

If you give her a chance, you will see for yourself.

What I cannot accomplish, Sehmat will!


What were you thinking, idiot?

About the squirrel...

What happened?

You take it out! Just looking at the blood is making me dizzy.



Mind the steps. Careful.
