Long time ago his elder brother was killed by terrorists which caused him to quit his medical studies and join Indian Police Service. He is a great admirer of Pakistan-based ghazal singer Gulfam Hassan. During one of Hassan's concerts, they meet for the first time and become great friends. Meanwhile, Ajay's investigation into the Pakistan-supported cross-border terrorism takes him to Rajasthan and reveals an unsettling truth about someone close to his heart.

Calm down.

Please sit down.

One at a time.

y es, your question.

How did the tribals get

such sophisticated arms?

We're investigating that.

But l assure you...

l'm not going to spare

the people responsible.

lnnocents were slaughtered.

What guarantees it won't

happen again?

l'm concerned too.

But l assure you it won't

happen again.

The Mumbai Police Crime Branch

is investigating this case.

y ou're late, Major Beg.

l have good news.

The papers in Hindustan

are full of news.

Of our success.

Who did all that?

There's someone.

Called Biran.

And what was his grouse?

None. We cooked up some.

That's our mandate.

Find the disgruntled elements.

And help them.

Give them guns. And money.

Let them get used to it.

This is war.

And this war we have to win.

By the way, where is

this Chandrapur?

Here's Bombay.

And Chandrapur is here

on the border of...

Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh.

Up early?

Actually, you shouldn't

be staying here.


The case has been

transferred to Mumbai.

So what? For a couple of days...

they'll shout themselves hoarse

in the legislature.

And everything will be

all right.

Not this time.

Biran's attack has

raised a furore.

So what am l to do?

Did l do anything?

People from the Crime Branch

in Mumbai are here.

They might come here too.

y ou better slip away.

These specially assigned

people... you never know.

lf they get their hands on you

l won't be able to do a thing.

How far to the police station?

Nearby. He'll escort you.

Go to the police station.

Take up the case papers.

So you know lnspector Salim

in Mumbai?

y es, sir.

He is all praise for you.

And you're so humble.

l haven't a say.

Bala Thakur is the man behind

everything that happens here.

Bal Thakur? Who is that?

- The don in these parts.

The are so many complaints

against him.

The police don't arrest him?

- He has been hauled up...

so many times. But every time,

the higher-ups call us up.

ln the last three years or so,

he has bought a lot of land...

two wine shops and a huge hotel

in Chandrapur.

lnterrogate him, and you

will know the whole game.

Where does he live?

- Nearby.

Crime Branch, Mumbai.

Where is Bala Thakur?

Gone out.

- Out?


No one searches

Thakur sahib's house.

Don't. y ou'll regret it.

Don't do this! y ou'll regret it

when the sahib comes back!

y our sahib isn't coming back.

Either he reports to Mumbai,

or he's dead.

Make sure he understands.

Make sure you tell your boss.

Tell him to get to Mumbai.

That's the only way

to save his neck.

Mr. Rathore.

Assistant Commissioner.

Don't let us see him elsewhere.

l told you not

to shout here!

Get down.

- He's getting naughty.

Ajay, listen...

- y es, Uncle?

Would you like to attend

a ghazal concert?

Gulfam Hassan is performing.

- Great!

When is it?

- At two this afternoon. Hurry.

Daddy, l'm going to

Gulfam Hassan's concert.

Mummy, here's your bread.

l'm going out.

Where to?

- l'll have lunch later.

Our guest this evening

is world-famous.

The famous singer,

Gulfam Hassan.

Our guest this evening

is also our host.

He belongs as much to Pakistan

as much as he belongs to lndia.

He spent his childhood here.

And he grew up there.

His ghazals are written there.

But his music belongs here.

May l present

Janab Gulfam Hassan.

Thank you.

l belong as much to Hindustan

as l belong to Pakistan.

My ties to both the lands are

emotional and sentimental.

That is what transcends

all relationships.

ln ghazal, this is what

we call `mohabbat', love.

ln love man transcends

all bounds.
