Baby, it's getting late for school

2 minutes, baby

Why did you oversleep?

On top of it

this junk of a bike!


Get him

imbecile! Which female

are you rushing to elope with!

Bloody mongrel!

My dad will knock you flat out!

Baby, catch him

'Rock on, baby'

What are you doing?

Do you know how tough it is

to drive out in the rain now, bro?

Drive carefully

Apologize and then go

Sorry, bro

Sorry, kiddo

Okay, baby

Baby, here you go, check if

all your books are in your bag

- Bye, baby

- Bye

Good morning, ma'am

Why are you late again?

On the way to school

the bike stopped, Miss

We had a tough time

trying to start it

Then some idiot splashed

dirty water all over my face

Baby and I yelled at him

And we chased and chased-

All I asked was

why you were late

And you are coming up

with this looooong story, huh?

Who is that?

Who, teachef?

Oh! That's my brother

Your brother


Why does he have

such a serious expression?

Is there any problem?

Love failure


No, a year ago

Oh God!

Have an idea

to befriend him?

Get in

- Good morning, Joseph

- Good morning

Good morning, Baby

Did you open up

the shop very early?

Why are you so late, bro?

In peak hours

if you land up so late... can I manage singlehanded?

Peak hours?!

Even if we are selling buns...

...we should be punctual

Did you deliver the biscuits

at that school?

Yes, Baby

The cake for the wedding?

Delivered, Baby

Don't waste time

Attend to our customers

Get lost, baldy!

You're alive even after

nibbling on the bun!?

Don't take money, baby

No need


"You put me in a mess

You crease the ironed dress"

"Wet your bed


"To study, not at all quick

Sums make you panic"

"You feed me, after you lick"

"My dear, now see me change"

"We'll be in a different range"

"Okay, la

Love you, la"

"We will make mistakes teeny weeny

And take notes ever so many"

You're so useless, baby

Why, baby?

Daily if you drop me so late,

making me miss 2 periods...

...I might have to repeat

kindergarten for 3 years

'Even the students who walk

come in time to school'

What is your problem

when you get dropped in a bike?'

My teacher wants to know

Isn't 'safety first', baby?

You come in and

tell this to my teacher

I'm scared of teachers

right from when I was a kid

I can't-

Don't be scared, baby

If you talk to my teacher...

'...all is well'

He is my friend

Excuse me, ma'am

Why are you late today?

Baby overslept

Daily you come up

with an excuse

Stand outside


Get in

Oho! It's working out fine

Sorry, for the late

How can you be like this?

You know you'll look smart

if you're clean shaven?

Shouldn't you be setting

an example to your daughter?

Baby won't be late

to school hereafter

You don't know Malayalam?

I don't know Malayalam

See you

4x4=17, baby?

Checking if I know my tables?

So it isn't 17?

I met this teacher

in your school yesterday

Who is that?

I didn't see her properly

Big cow-eyes

Rose complexion

Bun-like cheeks

You said you didn't

see her properly?

Annie teacher

Just stop with class work

and home work with her

Don't get too close

Why, baby?

Something doesn't fit, baby

I feel the same way too, baby

Is that so?

You don't mess up

my homework

I'll take care of it

Last time you drew a peacock

By the time I could convince her

it was a peacock, I lost half my years

Shall we go, baby?

I had a small bakery problem

just when I was leaving

That's why I am late


Let's go

Aiyaiyo! What happened, baby?

How did you get hurt like this?

You know that boy Kutta

He hit me


He called me 'Bakery'

I told him, 'My name is

not Bakery, I am Nivi'

He hit me


You didn't hit him back?


Didn't you tell me, baby?

You should shower love

on everyone and not fight

That's okay, baby

But I didn't say you should

get hit for no fault of yours

Wasn't he wrong

in hitting you, baby?

Very wrong, baby

Did he apologize to you?

Huh-huh, he laughed at me

He laughed

How can we let him

go scot free, baby?

Suppose you see a cow on the road

Cow or buffalo?

What does it matter?

If you say 'go'

will it move?

No, it won't

Won't go, right?

Only if you pat its back and

say 'go' it will move aside

That isn't violence, baby

If you pat, it will know to move

in the language it understands


Here I come, Kutta



Oh gaaawd!

Baby, what happened inside?

I showed him in the language

he will understand

Tomorrow you must meet

my teacher, be ready

Let's run now


If she wanted to punish you or me

because you hit that boy...

...your teacher should have

called us to the school?

Why did she ask us

to come to the church?

If she wanted to punish us...

...she would have told us

to come to the school

Maybe to forgive us...

...she wanted us to

come to the church

Correct, baby

You're really a dumbo, baby

You believe whatever I tell you

She has come

Teacher is here

Get up, get up

Why are you standing up

like a student?

- Please sit down

- No, it's okay

You keep standing

Were you the one

who taught Nivi to fight?

You look the calm kind

Do you involve kids

into violence like this?


Nothing of that sort

What does our Bible say?

Bible teaches us

a lot of good stuff
