As World War II rages,

the whole world is

engulfed in flames of war.

India is under British rule

and at present,

the freedom struggle is at its peak.

In Gandhi's non-violent struggle,

the call for self-rule

echoes throughout the country.

But another soldier

of this battle for freedom,

Subhash Chandra Bose,

is dismissive

about Gandhi's non-violent ways.

He believes that freedom has

to be fought for, not sought after.

It will be attained

by fighting fire with fire.

Bose changed his strategy

and joined hands

with the enemy of the enemy, Japan.

He assumed command of the

Indian National Army in Singapore.

The Indian National Army or INA.

Was formed with prisoners of war

who were captured

while fighting for the British.

But the British Army still had

thousands of Indian soldiers

who are shedding their blood

for their ruthless masters,

the British.


Hurry up, Nawab!

Hurry UP!

Nawab, run!

Nawab, hurry!


Nawab, c'mon, try harden. Hurry!



'India can no longer

remain enslaved.'

'We'll have to pay

the price for freedom!'

'Prepare for it.'

'We may've been born

in an enslaved India'

'but we'll breathe our last

in a free India.'

Sir, General Mutaguchi's orders.

The Japanese army is

to lead the attack, not us.

Our army, our mission,

both are irrelevant to the Japanese.

No one can stop us

from reaching Delhi now.

Neither the British, nor the Japanese.

Prepare for war.

The first stop will be here,

at Imphal.

In two months,

we will hoist the tricolor there.

And in four months.. in Delhi.

But, Sir, to fight our battle,

we'll need guns,

explosives, tanks, transport.

And for those, money.

We will arrange for the money.

Pardon me sir, but from where?


Jeem Pesh Wau Lam

Ek Naam Julia...

Sheen Ek Quaff

Hum Ghulam Julia...

Pal Pal... Paara Paara...

Chakraati Julia...

Uff Uff... Chappan Churiyan

Barsaati Julia...

There goes, there she goes, Julia

Here and there and everywhere

All over, god knows here

There goes, there she goes, Julia

Here and there and everywhere

All over, god knows here

Raised by the fall, Julia

The monsoons paramour, Julia

Adept at all the arts, Julia

Hey, cracking her whip, Julia


Roll sound!


O Julia... Pa-pa-pa-pum

O Julia... Pa-pa-pa-pum Pum-pum

O Julia... Pa-pa-pa-pum

O Julia... Pa-pa-pa-pum

Cut it! Print that, superb shot!

Extraordinary. Stunning. Incredible.

- This was a bit tight.

- OK!

Haseena, you were brilliant today.

You overshadowed Julia.

Why did you pull my hair so hard?

In the next shot,

Julia on a bike with horses chasing her

- and then an airplane.

- Perfect.

And then you decide

- One more!

Julia, why one more?

The last one was so good.

Rusi, what the hell? It's a classic

one-shot and I'm okay with it.

People watch films, not shots.

And who is the director of this film?

Good question.

You know how scarce film stock is.

The world is at war and you are

bent upon getting 'one more'!

Go and join Hitler's army!

The chandelier?

It's impossible to grab

the chandelier mid-air, Rusi.


What if something happens to me?

I don't want to die

before becoming Mrs. Billimoria.

You are Julia.

Miss Julia.

My Julia.


Every sight of you is a wonder

- Bloody hell!

You float on the edge of a sword

Every sight of you is a wonder

You float on the edge of a sword

You are life, Julia

You are the beloved, Julia

Pale-skinned, Julia

A leopard's tread, Julia

Without you, life's not

Worth a cent, Julia

One two three four

O Julia... Pa-pa-pa-pum
