'Bring down the patient'

'This way

Go left side'

'Move aside, please'

'Madam, move aside'

'Open the door'

'Change it quickly'

'Sir, please stay outside'

'We have to remove

the bullet immediately'

'Jagan, switch on

the operation theater light'

'A few months ago'

'Headlines for the day

At an ATM in Bangalore...'

'...a 38 year old woman was attacked

while withdrawing money'

'Life should not be about

just living and dying'

'It should be about achieving'

'He's one of those

who were born to achieve'

'But, look at fate...'

'When God shuts one door it

is said that he opens another'

'Sir, you've a baby boy'

Please handover the key to Murali

It's been days since we met

It's been years, not days

Heard you're now

the Deputy Superintendent

I'm happy for you

Which division?


Great, you haven't quit the Police

force even after losing a leg...

You've settled down well

at the Crime Record Bureau

What's the sudden visit about?

It's to do with my son

He see Policemen in movies

and wants to become one

But he'll fail in

the physical examination

So, I'm here to request

the DGP for a favor

If he puts in a word...

He'll get the job

lf l can pin a few stars on his

shoulders and make him a Policeman

My duty as a father ends there

Stars should be worn

only by the deserving...

"Only the worthy can be a Policeman"

I was waiting to hear

one of your 'punch' lines

If he gets a job only

out of a recommendation

How will he be serious

or sincere about it?

Are you joking?

This generation doesn't value sincerity

Can we drink a cup of tea?

These days, boys aren't

ready to work hard

They only want to have fun

And we are worried for them

because they are our sons

Don't generalize it

Why not?

They are all alike

We're their first villain

Which kid obeys his father these days?

My son does

His name is Murali Pandiyan

My word is the final say

I believe that

Children look up to their

father as their hero

Their role-model

If we are disciplined, they will be too

When we loiter around

smoking and drinking

Are you referring to me?

Why would I do that?

Whom did you refer to?

I'm the only one here

There couldn't be anything more subtle

Smart, you figured it out

The present generation

is geared up to work hard

The fault lies with parents

who don't guide them

Take you for instance

When your son wanted

to join the 'Police'

Recommendation is the wrong

route to suggest to him

I did show the route,

but not the wrong one

Nothing can happen without

recommendation these days

Why not?

Take my son for instance

Do you know what he said

when he was thirteen?

I wish to become a Policeman like you

And my advice to him was

"No Pain, No Gain"

You need to be physically and

mentally strong to become one

Like you?

Ever since

When the clock strikes six


At 8 AM

Not me

My son doesn't like to be recommended

Give me your hand

Your son has taken after you

He isn't street smart

No, Ravi

I'm sure he'll accomplish

all that I desired to

He'll get the 'Best Policeman

in Tamil Nadu' Award

And makes me proud, I am sure

Definitely, sir

Trust me

This is my dream job

I'll win the 'best employee'

award and bring laurels to you... me on this and

recommend me for this job

Get up...get up I say

Why are you falling at my feet?

Get up

I did well last time but

someone else was recommended

That's why I am here with

Murthy's recommendation this time

I'll help you only

because he wants me to

You'll receive an intimation

for the interview

Attend the interview and I'll

speak to the HR department

See you, sir

Ask Raja to come to my cabin


"Wake-up, Wake-up,

the bird chirps in the ear"

"The aroma of freshly brewed

coffee awakens your senses"

"Read the newspapers

and jump straight"

"Into the Rain shower"

"In a a flash"

"A compass drawn circle

on the dining table"

"Becomes a delectable Dosa"

"Piping hot, spicy Sambhar"

"Shakes you out of slumber"

"In a a flash"

"Stripes or Checks?

The heart wavers"

"Red or Black

the heart fumbles"

"Car? Bike? Train? Walk?"

"All the four plead to me"

"In a a flash"

"I mount a horse to ride"

"The girl in the bus waves to me"

"The roads are so free"

"I glide through like the breeze"

"In a a flash"

"Office today was fun

Candy crush, I won"

"Drove the prize-car"

"To the party"

"In a a flash"


"At the dance floor, met a beauty"

"Gave a flower and said I love her"

"We hit it off and I went nearer"

"A kiss and I was

ready to get hitched"

"In a a flash"

"The chairs at Pizza Hut have worn out"

"The cinema theater

screens have burnt out"

"The sand in the beach

has bleached out"

"We whispered sweet nothings"

"In a a flash"

"Once we tie the knot"

"We'll read bedtime stories"

"And have babies instantly"

"And click selfish"

"In a a flash"

"It will happen"

Do you want to enroll?

Call after a few months

lf l answer your call, you can enroll

Look at the irony

My gym is better equipped

And I charge less

Yet, nobody enrolls

Everyone throngs here

It's all about marketing

Let me explain

Are you surprised seeing a full house?

I switch on just one machine...

...and automatically

another three will work

The oldies pay me to work out here

And I pay the babes to work out here

Look at them

They're like the hungry eyeing a feast

What do you think?

They have a name for this business

You can call it anything

I call it marketing

That's it!

Not just this

Your brains also should work

This is unethical

I regret being your friend

Why is he here now?

Guys with 10 friends

are happy but me

What is it?

Where are you?

At my home

Your father's here

Handle him

I'll be there

How can I make up excuses instantly?

It's a bet!

My friend will definitely be selected

for the Police training

Wait and see

That was last year

His father couldn't

go along and support him

This time, his father sat

in the front row to support him

You should've seen his performance

He leaped like a tiger

in the long jump event

You weren't there

You won't know

Let's draw another bet

Murali will surely get

a Police Training order


When did you come?

You left out something

What did I leave out?

The rope-climbing event

You should've seen his speed

I can see

His skill in climbing

When did you see it?

I can see it right

in front of my eyes

I was visualizing your words

Am I that good with my words?


Where is Murali?

Why the sudden visit?

You forget everything

when you come to the gym

As if he comes everyday

We have to attend a function at 6 PM

Don't you remember?

Is it a booze party?


I forgot

I'll be ready in two minutes

Did you mention booze?

No, I meant other stuff

I believe you!

Now, it's time for

the felicitation ceremony
