"Mom... where are you, mom?"

Tell me something.

How much do you love me?

So much!

"Do you love your mom more, or me?"

You... you are always with me.

Look there.

"Liked the girl's voice?

- Yes, it was good."

Better than mine?

- Ofcourse not better than yours.

I'm going.

I'll be late in the evening.

For you.

This wasn't necessary.

- Keep it.

Bye dear.

"To run the house, I don't

care whether it is day or night."

And you are taunting me?

"Don't belittle me more, please!"

Time has already belittled me.

"Please Anwar, stop drinking. If your

business didn't run, it's no big deal."

You can still do a lot.

"If you like, even you can do a lot."

You can at least save this house.

"Come on, hurry up."

I will be late coming back. Take

care of yourself and your sister.

When will you return?

"Sorry, I could not come.

I was not keeping well."

Rukhsana did come.

She hasn't returned home yet.

Was someone with her at the party?


"Tazo, Daisy, go to your room,

and take Nazo too."

"And listen, look after her always.


Stories are strange.

That is why the incident of

that day was left unfinished.

"The revolver disappeared. Neither

Rukhsana, nor the police knew..."

where the revolver disappeared.

Rukhsana Jamal

was arrested for murder.

"Thousands of questions were asked,

but she didn't answer any."

"She had contacts with ministers,

top lawyers, and industrialists."

"On appeal, Rukhsana Jamal

was released on bail."

Just a minute.

"Murderess, give me a pose too."


"Due to lack of evidence,

the court acquitted Rukhsana Jamal."

Public memory is short.

People forgot Anwar's murder.

Rukhsana Jamal returned to the

recording studios.

"Result? A new private album,

Tanhai (loneliness)."

And Rukhsana Jamal once again

became popular in the world of fame.

Only one person remembers

Anwar's death still.

And that's Anwar and

Rukhsana Jamal's daughter...

And this was our first meeting.

I accept... I accept... I accept.

I accept... I accept... I accept.

Why this black dot?

- It saves one from evil eyes.

I've already been eyed.

- By whom?


What are you doing?

"I am a writer. I sometimes write

in English, and sometimes in Urdu."

Now this beautiful relationship...

"is 5 years, 6 months, 12 days,

3 hours & 6 seconds old."

We greet 'Good morning' to

each other with the hope...

that today's day turns

out to be special.

Does it really...

Salim! You dropped ink

on my table again!

Why do you use pens like an

old fashioned accountant?

Why don't you use the computer?

"You won't understand, love."

The joy one gets on framing

words with your hands...

cannot come on a lifeless computer.

Don't tell me you are going to write

another third rate romantic novel.

What is that...?

' Bilkis Bano's fever'.

'Shahnaz's wallowing sighs'

"The fever has subsided,

and the sighs have stopped."

"The title of my new novel is...

Are you listening, love?"

"Yes, Salim."

"Yes love, I am writing your story."

Not at all! There is nothing worth

writing about in my story.

Leave that to me.

"If the carpet of time is removed, one

can see many a story hidden like dust."

Please stop talking in

that novelistic language.

"Tehzeeb, we even

have a cat in the house."

I don't think the

fish will live long.

Those who die young are happier.

How much butter you eat!

And you know I don't like such things.

Then why do you

insist on annoying me?

Why are you getting annoyed?

"It's such a pleasant day,

even the weather is good."

Even the mood is good.

Romantic indeed!

And who will serve breakfast to Nazo?
