out in a ghagra-choli...

the cat-whistles people let out...

- Ha ha ha! Very funny!

Dad chartered a plane for just one day.

We haven't time to go and exchange it

But how can l wear it, Adi?

deep down in my heart...''

When did l bite you?

- The watch, l mean !

lt's already 11.

l got to be in Mumbai by 2, Adi!

Why're you so worried? The flight

literally belongs to my old man today!

Mind-blowing, dad!

The trip was mind-blowing!

Not that one, that one is raw.

Eat this... this is a ripe one

What difference, dad...?

They're the same colour

lt isn't the colour, son.

lt's the aroma

You tell a good mango from

its smell. Here you are

Useless fellow! You've been coming

to the farm for the last 25 years

And you still can't tell a good mango!

With an expert like you around, why

must l worry? This is mind-blowing!

There's a crate for your friends.

Don't forget it

And what did your friends have to say?
