What time will the train come?

It's time for it to come.

It's expected any time now.

Ask him exactly when it will come?

He says he can tell you that

only when the train arrives.

Call him and ask him where

the train is at this point.

Hello! Who is it?

I am Jagdish's sister.

Yes! Tell me.

Our train has stopped here.

Is he there?

I didn't dance!

I slipped!

Your kind attention please...

The Army Officers...

...special train from Jammu

to Mumbai Central,

train number; 12472,

Jammu Tavi Express is arriving

on Platform Number 5.

He's the only one missing.

Bro's there...

- Where is he?

Right there.

Hi, Bro!

- Hey, Deepti! How are you?

How are you?

What's with the tiny beard?

That's nothing, Mom.

Hello, Uncle! How are you?

- I am fine!

I don't have the time to chat.

I'm in a big hurry.

All of you must come

home for a meal.

Don't you ever eat?

Hey! Come on to this side.

I am coming, Dad.

Keep the bag in the Trunk.

Get in.

Go in.

Change to the third gear.

Where are we going

in such a hurry?

Don't you know?

We are going to see

a girl for you to marry.

The inauspicious month

starts with tomorrow.

No one will let you see their

daughter during that time.

And the inauspicious time

starts in 25 minutes.

We have to see

the girl before that,

else you will remain

a Bachelor even this year.

Mom, what is the fuss

about auspicious time?

I'm in uniform.

Will anyone go to

see a girl this way?

Let me have a bath,

change clothes,

nap for a bit and

then go out for this.

You're getting old!

I am going to be the same

age all of today, Mom.

Can all of you stay quiet!

Change to the fourth gear.

The appartment looks like a hotel.



Hasn't the Groom come?

This is the Groom!

Is he the Groom?

He looks like he is coming

straight from the battlefield!

Please come.

Hey, where are you running away?

Come on!

Please come in.

Three people have fallen

for him already.

We have to see the girl before

the auspicious time gets over.

That's why I brought him

directly from the Station.

Please ask the girl to come.

Sit down, dear.

Should I ask her to sing?

Any good song.

One can only sing the

National Anthem...

...for the clothes

the Groom is in.

Aren't you happy, my Boy?

Dad, can you give me

their number?

I'll give it to you.

Tell me.

Don't make noise,

the Groom is on the phone.

Please tell me.

Sir, your daughter

looks beautiful.

But, our tastes

seem different.

I don't know if we

will be a good match.

But, you will surely find a

better Groom for your daughter.

Please don't get me wrong.

Hey! What is this?

He is not going to get

married in this lifetime!

Give me one reason for

not liking this girl!

I have three reasons!

What is it?

That girl has hair that is

a meter and a half long!

Is this even a reason?

Even girls with short hair...

...take ages to set

their hair before going out.

If she has to go out, I am sure, she will

take 3 hours just to set her hair.

Did I ask for this? Did I?

Did I ask you to

get me married now?

On top of that, she is shy.

Looks like she will be scared

of lizards and cockroaches...

Look at her,

slapping her own Father.


You should have disciplined

her while she was young.

You were the one who played

with her...

...asking her to "Hit Daddy"

I thought she would be

a stylish girl,

but even while she is

in Bombay...

..she looks like

a small town girl.

Why do you need so much money?

I've told my friends...

...I will host a party

if the Groom doesn't like me!

Once I heard you are

coming here on Leave,
