Should we all turn into Katrina Kaif?

We are known because of our paunch


Sir, has arrived - Sir!

Sir. - Hail of lndia!

Hail of lndia!


East or west, this place is the best.

The wise have been right.

There's no place like home.

This is where l always feel like home.

Sir, l think you love this place.

The only difference in maternal and

paternal uncles is the way they think.


One's your mother's brother-in-law

and the other your father's

This is how differently

you and l think

You think this is a jail.

Whereas l think of this as my home.

Think about it.

lf even after getting paid such lucrative

salaries you think of it as jail.. would those innocent ones feel

who have been in there since ages.

Being a jailer,

you love your prisoners so much

l have always seen the

violent side of the police.

This is the first time l

am seeing their affectionate side.

Bahadur Singh. - Sir.

A mother keeps a child

in her womb only for nine months.

And see how much she loves them.

l have kept them here for 19 years..

So think how much

attached l am with them.

They are rotting in

here and not being released.

l am sure there might

be other officers like me..

..who love their prisoners,

but they cannot show it.

Because this is what everyone

is taught during the training..

..that you have to even suspect your

wife even if you bad intentions for her.

Anyway, l don't have a wife.

Hence, l give my wife's

share of love also to them.

What? - Yes

You too should love these so-called

prisoners like your cousins - Okay.

Sir, one of them is my real cousin.

l had told you about him.

Oh, very good.

And you two too.

Get all your cousins who are

in different prisons transferred here.

So that we can make them feel at home.

Yes sir. - That is great, sir.

Sir, if we take the population

into consideration..

..mothers should first

of all stop giving birth to sons

But if they do,

they should give birth.. sons like the great

jailer Jolawar Singh Johal.

lt's not easy to give birth

to sons like Jolawar Singh Johal.

l know what my mother had

to go through to give birth to me.

My mother went to every

possible temple, mosque, church.

My mother waited for 21 years

to have a child. 21 long years

Then, sir?

When she turned 22,

she got married to my father.

And that's when Jolawar

Singh came into this world.

Shut up.

Work during working hours

and joke during your free time.

Never forget these three things

Jolawar Singh Johal.

Sir, you keep an amazing balance

between affection and strictness

l don't think any prisoner

has every escaped from your prison.


l sometimes like what you say.

You are talking about running away?

Forget about running away..

After their sentence is over,

l have to request them to leave.

"Please leave, brothers."

lf we start keeping ex-prisoners

here the number will increase.. appoint where we will have divide

this place into PUDA approved sectors

Some time ago, prisoner number 107

made a few failed attempts to escape.

He came back the same

way he went and said;

"How are you doing?

Please forgive me."

"l bow before you.

Now this is my home."

"l surrender my life to you."

Tarseen, what were you putting to dry

over there under this scorching sun?

l go for a walk after lunch.

Great. l cannot believe that

l am talking to the same person..

..who tried to run away from

here a couple of times, 15 months ago.

He has given up on all his bad habits

and has become so health conscious.

..that he has accepted this

place from the bottom of his heart.

Jailer Jolawar Singh Johal

salutes you, unofficially.

What are you doing?

This is nothing, son.

l feel like bowing before you.

No, please don't do that.

l agree that you haven't done

anything crazy in the past 14 months.

But l cannot ignore

the fact that once..

..a person is infected

with the escape virus.. came became

active in him anytime.

That's true. - What?

l mean you are right.

One more thing,

Never get this filmy

feeling in your mind..

"There is no prison in the world

that can keep Tarseen Lal inside."

So my brother, this isn't a prison.

This is an unfortunate place..

..which you need to make

fortunate with your presence.

Now you are embarrassing me.

This is what l want.

l want you to be embarrassed.

So that you don't embarrass me.

This uniform has always been spotless.

And l always want

it to remain ultra clean.

As far as facilities are concerned,

l am here to provide them.

l need Fleet boots, size nine. - What?

To go on walks.

Size nine, no l will get you size ten.

We will build a running track for you.

You can run on it day and night.

l don't care whether

or not you build a track.

But l will accept whatever you say.

Now the prisoners will run from there.



A girl has come to meet you

Me? - Not even a man

would come to meet you.

She has come to meet

the other Jarnail.


Jarnail! A girl has come to meet you



ls everything all right?

My marriage has been fixed.

Your marriage has been fixed?

l tried convincing my father,

but he didn't give in.

And you gave in?

l've been fighting with my

family ever since you were arrested.

Relatives taunt my father that he

got a drug peddler for his daughter!

And you too joined the crowd

You very well know that l am
