People of this camp have lost

everyting to terrorism.

They don't have home, animals, or job.

I nee you to get me that permit

I'll talk to Mushtaq, He'll contact you,

Whatever you need!

Thank You

Am I seeing you tonight?



Facilitate Madam when she calls

-Yes Sir,


Shah Ji, to start with, We also didn't liked

the Idea of this dam...

But its not about your or my liking,

Its about the country..

What are you talking about? Mr. Chodhry

These are traditions,

heritage of our ancestors!

flood our heritage?

How's that possible that we give

our votes to a river or a dam!

and lose our votes in Assembly

Ijaz, You're just a kid,

But your courage is admirable!

But ... our Party's position

is very clear on this!

We can never revert from

our ancestors' bidding!

This Party, Respect, Votes,

We owe everyting to them!

Tell me peer Sahib,

Are You a Muslim?

Thank God, I am Muslim

What does it has to do with the dam?

It has to!

Shah Ji, Pleae tell me!,

Were your ancestors Muslim?

No, Maybe

Then why your ancestors left their

culture & religion behind!?

I'll tell you,

They knew, It was an Idea,

whose time has come..

They knew, It was right thing to do

You know this, that this Dam is

most important thing now!!

If you didn't let this dam happen,

all your farms would go barren!

Factories would go down,

People would be on the streat!

This is what you want for your nation?

Do our ancestors wanted us to be

homeless on the streets?

Don't betray your country!

This dam will be built!

Its essential for us

Heard about your little incident!

Mujtaba, You look terrible

Happy to see you too, Sir.

I see civil life hasn't done much to

your charming personality

Well, I see, your month of practice

hasn't done much for your swing either, Sir

Sir, what is like, I shan't be

happy for my incident

Why can't you be straight

for once in your life

Why Sir?

I'd like to know, who tried to kill me

Is that straight enough for you?

Look, We don't know!!

You've worked most of your life in

counter intelligence

90% of the agency doesn't even know

that you exist!

Even if someone did..,

They'd realise that your worth is

more alive than dead

Sir, I need to know!

Things are not looking good

Mujtaba, I've got a special team,

and I want you, on it.!


Why don't you continue to practice,

I'll come in ten years to

see you score under par

Mujtaba, Try to understand.

I am retired, Sir,

I don't do this anymore!

When are you gonna let your past go!

..In country with severe energy crisis,

people are only pointing fingers...

..but there a polition, who has made

his mission to solve this problem..

..We've here with us, Mr. Ijaz Khan..

Mr. Khan, People consider

you hope for democracy..

Even calling you Messiah ...

-What do you propose for this problem?

-Well, I am not...,

..not the only polition or Messiah

I try to work with every

polition of Pakistan

When this dam will be finished,

It will be victory for the whole Pakistan!

...But the People are on the streets,


...So you still speculate that

this dam could be built...?

I don't speculate, I firmly believe that

we will finish by the power of firm believe!

...Wait.. one naive question!

We can't built anything

based only on firm-belief!!

We need resources, expertise, along the spirit!

This country was not constituted

from international funding

This country was by muslims,

by their love & passion and their blood!

You're right, we need resources, expertise

But you are under-estimating

people of Pakistan


-Never in the History of Pakistan,...,

-..the people themselves arranged the funds

-This ..

-Ehtasham, Stop it, I'm trying to watch the show


Fine, I am Sorry, Jeez

Why can't you pick up your things and
