Manav!

Bloody hell!

You're yet to lose your milk teeth | and here you are... getting engaged!

Made me suffer 17 hours in the train!

You are not used to getting | off airplanes and Mercedes...

now try the local auto.

Guaranteed free body massage!

Tell me, did you meet her?

Who?

The buffalo in Pandey's stable!

Your Sumi!

Oh! So Sumitra's become Sumi, eh?

You just wait and watch what | else l am going to change!

Where does she stay?

ln this lane itself...

but we can't meet her right now.

Why not?

Give me the phone.

Who's stopping you? | Your Moghul dictator?

Right now there are | many guests at her place.

Please stop the auto... Stop!

Where are you?

Wow! She's lovely!

Where are you?

Standing right in front of you, | and still you can't see me?

Who are you?

Well...

that's the problem | with women these days.

Online | - they recognise you instantly...

but in real life, they say | - who are you?'

l am the new police | officer of this neighborhood.

Oh!

Mr. police officer. | Kindly note my complaint then.

The one who is hiding in the auto | hasn't come to see me since last evening.

Forget about him! l am here.

First get him arrested, then | we can also think of meeting.

Come on.

She is a smart one.

Reading texts the world walks | towards death, but none became wise...

The one, who reads four | letters of love, becomes wise.

Who is he?

Come, sit.

He is our Transformer baba.

There is a transformer near the | roundabout He has made himself a home there

So you're going to teach me the law now?.

Look...

No, you see! What is this? A school!

A school for | underprivileged slum children.

This is the government's job...

but we are somehow doing it from | the funds raised by the locals.

All that is fine...

But if you don't pay the bill, We | will have to disconnect the line.

ls this a bill or an official theft?

600 rupees in June and today!

lt's 2700 rupees.

Looks like someone has to | again face dad's wrath today!

Ever since the Private | Electric Companies have taken over...

they have made our lives miserable.

The entire colony's bill value has | gone up by double the amount, Dadu.

Look at this!

Suit yourself.

Don't pay the bill. l will | write the report accordingly.

Sure, you can write what you want.

But until the meter is fixed, we | are not going to do the payment.

Dad... Manav.

Namaste.

Namaste.

Please come.

So! Young man...

What are your future plans?

He is going to America, Dad. For his P.G

When l return, l will | setup my own company...

Tele-communications.

Manav has a very sharp | business sense, Dad.

Business!!

What is wrong with today's youth!

Crazy about money!

Uncle, money makes the world move.

The desire for profits | gives rise to competition.

And competition gives | rise to best talent, simple.

These words sound impressive...

but the truth is, that | people like you, are greedy!

Just think about it...

if there is no greed. | Why would anyone work hard?

lt's quite simple uncle. To move ahead.

Greed, profit, money, | these are not mere words!

They lead to development!

And the Private Sector | really understands this.

Take a look at any Private Business...

lt's neat, clean and full of energy,

And the Government | office full of corruption!

Look! The root cause of corruption is | - Greed!

lt's like a Tsunami...

Businessmen are greedy for illegal | profits The brokers greed is shortcut...

Govt officials are | greedy for extra income.

You will never accept it, | but the fact is...

that greedy people like you are | destroying not only our country's economy...

but also our inherent values.. | just like cancer!

Whoa whoa. Chill uncle.

Pardon me, but..

l am so sorry... You'll | have to change. Please.

lt's Ok.

What are you doing? Have you lost it?

Dad will...

What a hypocrite...

why are you so scared | of this Great Mughal?

lt's not that!

Since you were not around, l | have given up on all bad habits.

Because you are scared of your dad, | you don't want to drink and smoke.

l can understand.

But the logic behind this National | Highway is beyond my understanding.

Look at your qualifications!

Just imagine your life after 35 years, | what will you have when you retire.

30-40-50 lakhs of | pension and Provident fund!!?

You won't be able to | afford even a decent car then!

Who wants a car?

My dream is to open a small school, | post retirement...

and teach children.

Easy!

But before that, l will construct | first class roads for the Government.

Good roads will lead | to a prosperous nation!

lt will make me happy, dad | as well. That's all l want.

That old man will ruin you.

Will eventually waste your life and forever | will make you count cubic meter concentrate.

You will never change...

My fundas are sorted.

500 million in 5 years | - one billion in ten.

lndia is the fastest growing market | and l want to maximize every opportunity.

lt's not too late...

This engagement, wedding, Sumitra | business, put it on the waiting list...

and come with me.

Let me escort you to your room.

Thank you...

but Akhilesh hasn't been | swayed by greed so much...

that he cannot even walk up to his room.

l will be obliged if | you just leave him alone.

Dad, Manav did not mean...

Yes, l can see that.

See what he's done to | you in a short time.

This is his plan, Son.

To trap you in his | billion dollar dream...

and the only way out of his | fairy tale success world is downward!

l don't know why you are so | resentful towards success.

You will never understand...

because money is your religion.

And the market is your morality.

Love for one's country, society...

service to humanity, all these | words don't exist in your dictionary.

All you want to do is consume.

Be the ultimate consumer.

These scams don't mean | anything to people of your class.

You are ruining the | very core of this country.

But l am glad that despite being in your company, | Akhilesh has not forgotten his values.

Please forgive him, Manav. | He does not understand you.

lt's ok pal. l don't | understand him either.

And listen, speak with Sumi.

Let's go.

On my terrace my beloved,

On my terrace my beloved,

Our eyes get locked in love

Our eyes get locked in love

on my terrace, my oh my

on my terrace, my oh my

Open the door to your heart

Excuse me.

So! What have you | thought about my offer?

You know... Wishtel guys are here!

Ready with a Blank Cheque.

Manav, why are you so stubborn!

They are giving you such a good offer...

500 million dollars for 50% stake.

600...

Rajat and Suri from Wistel...

Dahling.

You know my connections in the private sector | and in the Government sector are...

much better than your Sundarlal Khatri.

l can turn your dream Project | FUTURE lV into reality very soon.

The package isn't bad Ms. Malini Mishra.

But, until l don't explore my dreams | to the fullest. l don't sell them.

my heart is like an empty garden

You become the life giving rain
