On his return, Shekhar is surprised to find out that the Zamindar's son is ready to marry his sister. His mother tells him that the Zamindar's daughter Sweety loves him from their childhood days. The Zamindar had approached his mother to fix the marriage but she told him that she cannot fix her son's wedding until her daughter is married. Sweety's brother agreed to the marriage for as his mother says, brothers are those who sacrifice everything for their sister's happiness. He has no alternative and marries Sweety.

Popatlal, never has a bus stopped

at our doorstep. Explain this huge car

Must've come asking for address.

Let's clear the air

ls he the writer we called up?

- In Mercedes?

Sir, when I got your call,

I left my tea and came over

I'm a writer. What reminds you

of this worthless man?

Worthless? You don't know your worth

You've written a great story

What have I written?

- You have no idea what you've written

Something extraordinary?

- Fantastic! Mind-blowing! Terrific

Of all the directors, only you

figured out my script, sir

No one even acknowledged me.

- Asses all. What'd asses know?

But now you've found

a real connoisseur

I'll set them ablaze!

- The script and him? Clear the air

Get inside!

- Tell me

I took it out on him because of you.

- Explain it, please

He didn't explain the fire.

Isn't it wrong?

Sir, all these movies?

- I've seen them ten times each

You can't become a director otherwise.

- You mean you're making a debut?

First film, brand new, first venture.

- If it materialises

Who will act in it?

- The actors well, yes

your story is so novel, old actors

won't fit the bill

They won't give a damn.

- Hey! Well, listen. You and I

are debuting as writer and director

- And I, as heroine


Everything about us is new.

- Even the public

What rot! Let some thing stay

the way it is

What he means is if all are debuting,

no one will watch

You are making a mistake. Every

famous director once made his debut

A dynamic writer and a fantastic script

I'm going to ignite a fire

Ignite what? The film?

The audience? The cinema hall?

Stop interfering.

Am I not talking to him?

Excuse me excuse me!

Yes, my boy?

- What are you offering me?

A huge title in the credits.

What name would you prefer?

Name is Sher Singh. But I've thought

of Shekhar for the screen

That's nice.

- But I'm a bit cash-strapped right non

He's kidding. He roams around in

a Mercedes and cribs about money

You are mistaken. I had no money

for a cab, so I came in a Mercedes

Now it's clear.

- I'll make it more clear

I work in a car service center,

and this car belongs to my boss

I understand. Smart boy.

He works for a living

What about our livelihood?

- Shut up! Tell me, Popat

What does a writer earn per movie?

- Zilch

Something, for sure?

- Sure, I won't let you starve

I got it now I'll leave.

I know your fake types

Listen, listen

you can't shatter my dreams like this

I've got a great break. There's

happiness in this office after years

It's a question of my career.

Please please


- Look, I understand your grief

But how can I give my script away?

- Like this. Kid, you are worked up

I was kidding. You don't know

Chelaramani. I have raised the money

How much will you charge?

- At least


- Done




- Why do you look scared?

Not at all. Actually,

I'm expecting my girlfriend

If she spots me with you

- You'll be in trouble?

No, but it'll ruin my evening

You could say that I'm the heroine

of your movie

I haven't told her yet that

I'm working in movies. Because

these days even big budget films flop.

And ours is a low budget one

I have no idea whether it'll work.

- No Shekhar, don't say that

Don't say that. Our film will be a hit.

In fact, it'll be a super hit

If it's a hit, I'll tell her.

Can we meet later?

Why are you so scared

of your girlfriend?

Actually, I don't want to lose her.

She's one in a million

What do I say?

You are full of intoxication

If my heart goes hysteric,

don't blame me

How sweet!

- It's not just about romance

I want to marry.

- Congratulations

Thank you

Nisha? I mean, I was talking

about marrying her

I mean, marrying you,

not her

Won't you introduce us?

- This is my friend


- I mean, she's my boss' client

She buys cars from him.

- Client? Then why are you jittery?

Who is jittery? You are raving.

- Really? All right

Here make her your sister

Tie it to my wrist.

- You're kidding

It's a very serious joke.

- What nonsense!

I have made 40 sisters

You are 41st.

No way, Shekhar

We are not having an affair

But I never considered you my brother

A sacred thread?

No way, Shekhar

No way!

are you crying?

What the hell was going on?

- I swear, nothing

Tell me the truth.

- I swear, Nisha

Nisha, please!

- I'll kill myself


- Baldev, the silly: girl took poison

Madan, foolishness is

another name for love

Take it easy. Don't worry, everything

will be fine. How's she now?

Mr Chopra, the effect of the poison

hasn't ceased. The treatment is on

I don't understand what spell that

beggar has cast on Nisha

Doctor, how is she now?

- Not to worry. She is out of danger

Thank God

Thank you very much.

- It's okay

I'll fix that swine. I'm not

sparing him. I'll have him jailed

Papa, reason with him.

Anger will only make matters worse

One mustn't fuel a fire.

Let it cool down

Then we'll douse it with love.

- What do you mean?

A few more tiffs like this, and Nisha

will begin to hate that pauper

And that is when you find a suitor

and marry her off. Simple

If this is how she earns shame,

how will I find her a suitor?

When will your friend help?

His son Vicky will marry our Nisha


True, Madan. Vicky loves Nisha dearly.

That's why he's still a bachelor

Else, he'd have married long ago and

I'd be playing with my grandchildren

Excuse me, uncle can I meet Nisha?
