Instead of "Pandu", your name should have been Gaan..

I am not gonna come, The dog itself is like this!

And we are lying him that we are making a movie, I am getting scared.

I have solution for your fear. I had read it in some book.

If we are scared of someone,

just imagine him as naked, you will not be scared of him anymore.

I did not understand.

Mr. Sobers, We need to talk to Anushku about the script.

Anushku never talks to anyone either in person or over the phone!

Anushku is a famous novelist, we want people to know more about him through our movie.

We can find the gender easily, nowadays medical technology is so advanced..

Cant you say it just by removing the undies ?

Medical technology it seems... idiot..

Even I have not seen Anushku, neither have I talked to him.

Then how are you publishing his Novels ?!

He sends everything via post.

If I have to send him, I send it to the post box address which he has given.

Can I get the post box address ?

You will come behind me after bathing, It will be my turn to take revenge on you.

May be in your dreams.

I proofread the final draft of your novel.

Gautham, at least wash your hands before eating something.

Lion never washes hand before eating.

Even monkey does not wash.

I got that bad dream again.

Do not take any stress, if you get afraid of anything just remember my face.

I will get even more scared then.

Gautham, you are bleeding!

Gautham, can I ask you for something ?

Anything for you.

I had told you once. My family left our native before I was even born.

We had a bootha temple there

My grandpa took all temple's gold and left the home.

We have not visited the temple after that

and the Bootha-radhane rituals are not happening there.

Bootha- aradhane means the rituals from Mangalore right ?

where they dress up and dance for the deity?

I know you do not believe all these things..

my grandparents and parents have died after leaving our native.

Last time we lost our baby. I almost lost you too.

Tell me what should I do ?

We shall return all temple's gold and start worshiping bootha again.

What if that bootha is behind all the deaths in the family. I do not want to take any chance.

When should we leave ?

If it makes you happy, yes.

We have a train tomorrow at 2pm. I have already booked tickets.

Did you know already that I will agree?

I knew.

wait a minute.

It is like the lotus on your hand.

what is your native place's name ?


Can we leave now ?

Why are you in hurry Paanchali .

keen for your first night ?

We cannot hang out together anymore, you will get busy with all family stuff.

shut up

Paandu tell me the truth, did you really like her or she forced you to marry her ?

there is no difference between a suicide and murder, both gives you death!

Pandu, I do not have my car for 2 to 3 days. Where are you going for your honeymoon ?

Ooty, why ?

Are you not ashamed of coming with a couple on their honeymoon ?

chill Paanchali,chill ..

Either stop calling her Paanchali or stop calling me Paandu.

Paachali was Paandu's daughter in law.

Then Shall I call you in 5 names?

After reaching Ooty, do you have any plans or going to stick with us there too ?

I have some other work bro!

What is it?

I have got some lead on a article I was working on. I am going to investigate on that.

Is it about that nameless writer... Anushku ?

You guys would be busy in resort right, so I will take your car.

If we have to roam somewhere?

Don't worry, you will not come out of your bedroom at all.

Do you think you gonna see him here.

Yes, I hope. If he has not left that place.

I am taking the Bootha ornaments trunk.

You have go by boat from here.

Can you take us to the other side ?

What man?

What happened ?!

Will you take us ?

You stay here, I will go talk.

Come lets go

All my bags are there.

Oh is it, okay ..

Why are you late ? Did you face any problem on the way ?

Road was not good and a tree had fallen on the road.
