Morning Doctor - Morning

Daughter is better, Panicker?

No Sir

No?

No, not at all...

Now they are saying she

needs to wear a brace on her back

They are right, you know...

Better than having an operation...

Surgery carries a risk of

vertebral canal stenosis

All in God's hands, Sir

She will be alright... don't worry

Sir hasn't come yet...

Sorry Ma'am...

Yes Ma'am...

Coffee Ma'am!

So sweet of you, Sir

You work too hard...

Good Morning Sir - Sorry Ma'am

Good morning Ann.

Good morning.

Hovv are the Vitals?

BP is back to 120/80...

Temperature 98.2...

Can I have a look?

Thanks

That means the fever

last night

was an anomaly...

...we should do the

blood test anyway...

Yes, I have informed the lab...

I will have to check

on another patient...

will you take over?

Yes, yes sure...

Thank you, Uncle... I will see you.

So?

Hovv is my favourite wife?

There's a cramp in your gut

Yet you mouth off a lame excuse

You hide the sanitary napkin

From the male gaze

Oh, why should we hide?

Will you shed the old ways please!

Be free!

Be free!

Those four days of the month

When you feel that little stir

Drop the damn secret

All that blood is Mother Nature

Drop the black bag around your

Pack of Sanitary

Be Free!

Be Free!

So?

Nice

Yeah?

It's Good.

You like it?

Cool!

Really

Thank You!

Hadn't taken a shower anyway!

You pricks!

Can't you think beyond

your stupid spoofs...

You know,

I have achieved something in my life

At least I am using

the power of social media...

...to create something meaningful

The brand wins, we win.

We create a revolution...

We are the f***ing new wave man!

The new wave of

sanitary napkins!

Hi, I am Lokesh

and I am a feminist!

Pricks!

And I thought you had

bunked work again today...

Mrs. Deshpande?

Yes?

Ma'am, I am Bharat Saxena...

I am from SciTech

Guys, will you shut up please...

From your husband's office...?

Ma'am, this is your

Ivlumbai to Cochin ticket...

We have kept the return

tickets open for now...

I'm sure he's going

to be okay Ma'am...

Listen, help me atleast a bit?!

I'm doing all the packing!

F***ing sucks, man.

They like just got married!

Do you think we should go with her?

I f***ing hate hospitals!

I think we should inform

Tara's parents, no?

They don't talk to each other

Both their parents

were against their wedding

Seriously?

What a 70's show man!

They look so posh.

Just shut the f*** up!

Just saying...

I can't stop yapping

until I get some food into me...

You know in these flights...

...you have to choose your food

options at the time of booking itself...

Vegetarian or Non

Vegetarian etc etc...

Now what will you do?

Ask the Air Hostess...

...if she has any spare packets

of banana chips or something...

Excuse me...

My husband, Rajat Deshpande?

One minute...

Ma'am your husband is

in the ICU right now...

I don't have any

more details here...

Go straight.

Take the lift to the fourth floor

Take the right and

then go straight again

Oh sorry, sorry... sit down.

Let's go to another room...

Mrs. Deshpande?

Yes, yes Doctor?

No!

Myself Girish from SciTech.

From the local branch...

Company people told

me to see that you are okay...

I'm sorry I didn't see you

coming,

so I went to take dinner...

Doctor will be here

any minute Ma'am...

Don't worry... this

is a top class hospital...

All foreigners are

coming here for treatment...

...and we have also

booked your hotel,

just opposite the hospital...

Mrs. Sampath?

No! Mrs. Deshpande!

Oh Sorry...

No wait... are you the Doctor?

Yeah...

Yeah... I need to see my husband

The nurse will be here...

No, I need to see

my husband now!

Please!

Your husband... what's his name?

Rajat Deshpande...

Rajat...

Deshpande...

And which one is he? Bed number...?

I don't know...

Bed number 8!

Bed Number 8...

Ma'am... just have a seat...

I am Dr. Vishvvanath...

Your husband is not my patient...

I'm just on call here for tonight...

Hovv much do you know

about his situation?

Nothing!

I have been

sitting here like an idiot!

Actually Rajat sir

was in an accident...

Truck hit his car...

and his head was smashed...

Okay... okay...

Mrs. Deshpande...

according to the note here...

...he was in some kind of

RTA... the front seat passenger

I think they had to

cut him out of the car...

Oh God!

When he reached here...

he had a severe head injury

Frontal and temporal

skull fractures,

significant bleeding...

He's on a breathing machine...

We'll know more about

his prognosis

in 48 hours...

Will he be okay?

Ma'am your own doctor will

talk to you in the morning...

I want to see him

That I will have to check

Check?

Check with bloody whom ya?!

I have every right to see my

husband. He is my husband okay!

Ma'am calm down...

No, I won't calm down!

Who is the f***ing boss of

this place and who can I speak to?

Hovv can I see my own husband?!

Hello

I'm Rajat Deshpande

and I offer deep apologies...

...for not answering your

phone just now because I am...

busy!

Please leave a message after the sound

of this ceremonial Buddhist gong...

Can I sit here?

Yes.

First 48 hours are hard

Very hard

Yeah

I saw you outside the ICU

Shouting at Dr. Vishvvanath...

Your husband? Car accident?

Brain injury?

YUP:

Brain injury is tough...

But survival chances are

better with young, healthy patients

So, my husband is going to be okay,
