While for most Love Stories, marriage is the "goal", the fact remains that marriage is just the beginning. Saathiya continues on, from where most love stories end. From the infatuation stage "when a couple thinks they are in love" right through to "when a couple discovers the true meaning of love". Aditya (Vivek Oberoi) and Suhani (Rani Mukerji) met and fell in love. But when they eloped and set up home hoping that just Love will do the trick - well that's just the beginning of their story.

"The moon will stealthily enter

through the window in bare feet"

"O beloved, listen to me,

listen to me, my darling"

"The moon will stealthily enter

through the window in bare feet"

Hey, what are you watching?

Is this a Ramlila?

Hey, you. Stop. - Sir, I've got to

go to the station.

Do I have to write it down for you?

Can't you hear?

Sorry sir, Sorry.

- You can't go from here.

There has been an accident.

Take a U-turn and go back. Go...

Today 6.30 p. M Marine Lines Station

What are you doing here?

Waiting for Suhani?

Like always.

If you'd married me, you wouldn't

have had to do all this.

If she doesn't come in the

next ten minutes...

We'll run away to a temple

and get married.

Let's go.

Is Suhani there?

Did she say where she was going?

Are you sure she is not somewhere

there... in the hospital?

Okay, I'll disconnect

the phone.

"It overflowed... the water from

the pitcher overflowed"

"It overflowed, for the

eye could not hold"

"Mother said, don't go.

Brother, I didn't listen to him"

"Father said, just one day more.

And it overflowed"

"Gudda said don't go.

Guddi too said the same"

"Friend said, just one day more.

And it overflowed..."

"The water from the

pitcher overflowed"

"It overflowed, for the eyes

couldn't hold"

There goes one more.

Another one bites the dust.

He used to be quite a happy guy.

Now he's gone and stuck his

head in a noose.

Why? What's wrong with our girl?

- Your girl?

So big? How old are you?

It's the magic of LUX beauty soap!

What else?

Are you done speaking?

- Yes.

What was it you were saying about

putting his head in a noose?

When it comes to

wearing the garland...

Why'd you all stick your heads

out like tortoises?

It's just that this tortoise did not

know that you live in this village.

I am very pleased to meet you.

What's your name?


What's the matter Adi?

- I thought marriage was ruin.

Ok. So what if it's not you.

There are other men who will

willingly die for me.

Hey, you mirchi (chili)

Here's a bitter gourd.

Eat it. You and your disciples.

Adi, what's she saying

& going away?

Don't put your lips to it.

She's quite bitter.

"As she walked, she said

your house was small"

"I left my songs behind.

Under the wings of a bird"

By the way, who is this girl who

just gave this shagun?

Why? Do you also want the shagun?

- No... no.

She talks a lot.

Quite a wily girl.

Listen Mister,

she's my daughter.


No, I meant she is very gifted.

Faux paus... I'm dead meat.

By the way... what is her name?

Boy, if you weren't a guest I would

have made mincemeat out of you.

Get lost... mannerless.

"And the water from the

pitcher overflowed"

"It overflowed, for the eyes

couldn't hold"

"Mother said don't go.

Brother said I didn't listen"

"Father said just one day more.

And the water overflowed"

"The crow said don't go.

So did the saint..."

"The crow said, just one day more.

And it overflowed"

Oh Ruin, I was looking for you.

Even my father is looking for you.

- Oh God... Escape!

You have a great smile.

I had heard that village girls are

very simple and innocent.


Excuse me aunty! Here, she is both

simple and shy.

Great son! - Greetings.

"Father... I left your courtyard"

"Your courtyard...

I left it behind"

"When I come home next time,

bring a diamond ring"

"My friends will play with it

on their laps..."

"A bouncing bonny baby"

"When the monsoons come this time"

"Another kind of separation

will have its say..."

"Separation from my beloved"


Close the book and

open your mouth and eat.

Mani Ratnam

Gopala Ratnam Subramaniam (born 2 June 1956), commonly known by his screen name Mani Ratnam, is an Indian film director, screenwriter, and producer who predominantly works in Tamil cinema. The Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shri, acknowledging his contributions to film in 2002. Despite being born into a film family, Mani Ratnam did not develop any interest towards films when he was young. Upon completion of his post graduation in management, he started his career as a consultant. He entered the film industry through the 1983 Kannada film Pallavi Anu Pallavi. The failure of his subsequent films would mean that he was left with fewer offers. However, his fifth directorial outing, Mouna Ragam (1986), established him as a leading filmmaker in Tamil cinema. He followed that with Nayakan (1987). Mani Ratnam is well known for his "Terrorism trilogy" consisting of Roja (1992), Bombay (1995), and Dil Se.. (1998). Mani Ratnam is married to Tamil actress Suhasini and has a son with her. He has won several film awards, including six National Film Awards, six Filmfare Awards South and three Bollywood Filmfare Awards. more…
