"No, can't move this week.

Got lots of work"

Breakfast is ready.

- I'll see Ma first

"Life's strange, no?"

"We had nothing, yet we had

everything. Because I had you"

Now I got everything and all I have

is nothing... Because you're no more

Guess why I'm telling you all this?

You left me when I was six

"20 years after,

you look just the same"

"And look Ma, how I've changed"

"Remember my birthday? Say, what gift

will you give me this year"

"Every year, you sent me gifts...

gifts from God. And this year?"

Will you? Won't you?

Headlines. The new foreign policy and

a breakthrough in computer technology

No news?

- The new cricket team

London-based Rajesh Purushottam Mittal

is businessman of the year

Indians and people of Indian origin

all over the world take pride...

in the fact that an Indian has bagged

England's most prestigious award

Rajesh Mittal will be presented

the award on the 20th of this month

Ma... do you see?

Papa is alive

And you thought he never came back

because of whatever befell him

He was only too busy doing whatever

and it has reaped a reward for him

"And I kept wondering why I'm alive?

What for? And nice of God, no...?"

He denied me my mother's love

and now He gives me a father

"You were no widow, I was no orphan

so I'm going to London, right away"

"And you got to come along.

Else, how will he recognize me?"

He doesn't even know

that he has a son


- You're on the first flight to London

Why are you staring?

Are you seeing me for the first time?


"Cut the crap. Why not even a phone,

a fax for so long? Not done, friend"


- Are we getting formal?

"All of a sudden, after all the jokes

we shared, am I a stranger? My bag"

"If you're suffering from amnesia,

why not see a good doctor?"

"How could I forget you, my first love?

Are first loves forgettable?"

"Had you not turned up, I'd be so upset

that I'd return to Bombay"

Oh am I glad to see you!

I can't tell you in as many words

So let my lips speak

"Ma told me all about you,

she showed me your photo"

"So I know who you are, my love

and don't we go back a long time?"

"No fax, no Xerox, no telex,

no floppies"

"I'm just my Papa's

carbon copy"

Is this any time to turn up?

- What...?

Show me your invitation

"By the way, who are you?

- Maybe you got amnesia"

Why not see a doctor?

- You fancy gate-crashing?

You fancy someone lugging your luggage?

- So... quits?

"What kind of a name is Sony?

- No, I'm Sonia"

I'm elated. But the credit goes

to my father Purushottam Mittal

I followed the path he showed me

and here I am

"This award is the outcome of his

principles, the upbringing he gave me"

"Daddy, come up on stage"

Daddy... grandfather...?

Fortunate is a man who sees his son

overtake him up the ladders of success

"A fortunate father, I am

and I'm proud of my son Rajesh"

"More than my son, I'm proud that

an Indian who has won this award"

A woman is behind my success.

At my every step what inspired me...

"was her love, her companionship...

none other than my wife Smita Mittal"

I'm very fortunate

to have Smita for my wife

I too am most fortunate

to have him for my husband

"Last but not the least,

the apples of my eyes..."

"my daughter Rinke and my son, Bunty.

Join me, my children"

God save us from the evil eye

You loved him till your last breath?

But he forgot you long ago

"Now he loves someone else.

To you, he was no husband"

"To me, he was no father"

He's someone else's father.

He's someone else's husband

"Thanks, brother.

- Why thank a brother?"

"Come, let's have coffee"

You're his son. He will be glad

to see you. He's your father

He can't be a bad man.

- How can you be sure?

You don't even know him.

- But one thing I know

Your father is an Indian.

An Indian never betrays his family

"We might not be so wealthy,

but at heart, we're rich"

"Come on, I'll tell you a story"

A lone star...


shows the way

The shining star...

is my Hindustan

From East to West...

travels the light

"India holds her own

even in London"

"From afar, we traveled

to this alien land..."

"carrying a message

from our homelands"

Here riches galore...

but be true to love

"That's the message

which has stirred this alien land"

"India holds her own

even in London"

"We're from the land

where love lives in hearts"

"Ties of love are never broken,

relationships are never broken"

"Then why did I think

this is an alien land?"

Your words give me courage

"What made you think

this is an alien land?"

"But I'm happy

if I've given you courage"

Life is tied to relationships

My land has touched my life

Yours will become a legend

"India holds her own

even in London"

From East to West...

travels the light

"India holds her own

even in London"

Do I look British?

Talk to a Hindustani in Hindustani

I'll use Punjabi. Where to?

- What's up there?

Mr. Mittal's residence.

- So I must be going to see him

As if you own that mansion?

- You could say so

Indeed? You got an appointment?

- No

Then you can't see him.

- It's urgent. I'm related to him

Ever since he won the award...

every Indian is into the business

of getting related to him. Scoot

Step aside.

- Who's that?

"Some relative! You don't know

who Mr. Mittal is? Hey, where to?"

The problem about being rich

are the relations you spawn

Never will I buy a mansion.
