Aunty, whenever you're here,

the day becomes so cheerful and bright.

Everybody tells me that.

- Sure.

Love you, baby.

- Bye

Bye, boys.

- Bye.

Oh, Mama.

Yes Mama.

- Farhad.

Meru aunty just called.

She was saying we've

to go see this girl.

Freny Mehta.

She's a nice girl.

Farhad, we'll meet at Tardeo circle.

Five o'clock. Don't be late.

Mama. How many times do

I have to tell you

I can't skip work like this.

Why don't you understand?

Farhad, there are very

few Parsi girls left.

Otherwise, after this..

...we'll only find

widows and divorcees.

Get ready.

I'll go and get ready.

Actually, mamma is right.

Farhacl just 'loves' cricket.

He's crazy about cricket.

He spends the whole day on the field.

I see.

So what are you, batsman or bowler?

- 12th man.

He's very fond of sports.

You know, he's at

the Parsi Gymkhana every Sunday.

Oh, he should've

made the top 11 by now.

I'm a scorer now.

Top scorer, he means. Top scorer.

Farhad, son.

- Yes.

What do you do?

Let me tell you.

We are from a well to do family.

We have a farm at Navsari,

a nice big house

...and Farhad has a garment business.

Just a minute.

Sorry, mama. Don't feel bad.

She's my mommy.

She really loves me a lot.

And wants to see me happy.

Just like every mommy

loves their child

and she wants to see me happy.

Happily married, basically.

Let me be honest with you.

Don't feel bad, uncle.

We don't have a big

house or a farm at Navsari.

And more importantly...

I don't have any garment business.

The fact is that I am a salesman

at Tem Tem's bra and panties store.


Let me know if you

have any requirement.

Pass it on.

One for granny too.

Let me ma, please. Yeah..

From Parsi Dairy?

Mama, pass me a slice of cake.


Don't be sad, mama.

I'm very sorry.

- No, Farhad.

I am not sad.

I'm so proud of you my son.

You've become so honest.

I would let go of a thousand

Freny's for you to stay this way.

And anyway,

why do I need to get married?

You're there to look after me, right?

Don't talk like a fool.

You think I'm going to spend

the rest of my life..

...feeding you chicken and eggs?

Frankly, I think

it's a very good idea.


Farhacl Pastakia!

- Yes.

Don't you recognise me?

- No. - Cyrus.

We were together

from the fifth standard.


- Hi, Cyrus.

How are you?

Mama, don't you recognise Cyrus?

Remember, the guy

that was suspended

...for sneaking into the girl's toilet.

Farhad, meet my son Firdaus.

Hi, Firdaus. How are you, son?

Hello, aunty.

- Hello.

Where's your wife?

- Divorced.

And yours?

Still searching.

Please tell me if you

know any nice girls for him.


And by the way, where's your wife now?

See you.

- All the best.

See you, son. See you.

Bye- Bye


She's single now.

What's the harm in asking?

Mama, you're too much.

Who's come this late?


Really, it's a surprise.

How are you, aunty?

- Great, come come.

Please come in.

- Aunty, that's my girlfriend Anahita.

Hi, Anahita. Nice to see you.

How are you?

- Great, great.

Come, come. Welcome.

How are you?

- Great.


What a pleasant surprise.

Farhad. Farhad.

Look, the entire gang's here.

Hi, Beroze aunty.

- Hi, Farhad.

You're looking like a bomb.

Forget my bomb,

when is your 'rocket' taking off?

Hi, mama.


- How are you?

Hey, Perizad .

How are you?

Celebrating, are we?

Hormuz's wedding date's been fixed?

Bringing dear.

Finally marriage date has been fixed.

Oh I am so happy for Hormuz.

Thank you.


Consider the marriage, approved.

Feroze Uncle, how did you know?

Indira's a wonderful girl.

Who's Indira?

- Indira Gandhi.

Uncle's slightly cuckoo.

He's still living in

a 60 year flashback.

So cute.

- Farhad, son. - Tell me.

I just heard the

announcement over the radio.

Indira's coming to Mumbai.

And the secret is

she's not here for the meeting.

She's coming to see me.

So everyone please

Indira, you're here!

You didn't even tell me.

Feroze uncle! Feroze uncle!

Feroze uncle!


My Indira-

Feroze uncle!

I am the real Feroze
