Messing up my day Hold this I want coffee Only here you push your weight around You and your jockey party found skeletons you said But your names are missing in the paper We didn’t even give any interviews Open your eyes wide and read It seems the commissioner himself found the tree and dug underneath That’s the news here By the way you spun a yarn there was a bullet on the forehead But in this photo I can’t see anything Yarn, huh? Take a look See this bullet wound Oh gawd! I can’t sleep if I see all this Commissioner sir, this is Ashwin here Madhumita’s frien- Ashwin…tell me I want to meet you urgently I’m in the midst of an enquiry now I’ll be back in an hour Come to my office We’ll meet up I’m commissioner Gopinath I want to meet Madhumita Regarding what, sir?

Listen, Madhumita is from a very affluent family I didn’t want your names dragged out in the open That’s why I didn’t tell them In the place we dug, there’s something like a finger There’s also a ring with the initial R engraved But none of the papers this morning shows it I want to clarify –1 more doubt The 2 skeletons are Kali and Kalyani Then whom can this ring belong to? When did you take this photo? I clicked it while they were digging Is it wrong, sir? Did you share this with anyone else? No, sir No one Shivaraj…? My phone, sir Shivaraj, in the place we dug yesterday… …a finger and a ring seem to be missing! No, sir It is- What nonsense!

What does this mean? Why are you hiding it? I can even tell you whose finger it is You see, Ashwin, if I had given this photo to the press… …then whoever murdered Kali and Kalyani will be tipped off We must nab that killer with proof I need your help What’s your name now? Kalyani – Year? – 1987 Okay, you are Kalyani Who is Kali?

I’m not planning to kidnap your daughter! Don’t we ask God for things we don’t have? Will God give it to us at once generously? Still, tomorrow I shouldn’t feel bad I didn’t ask you That’s why, I thought- Who are you? Who are we? Do you mean caste, sir? We belong to the same clan You draw and paint, so do I We are all human beings, right? Fine, I’ll also become like you if you so wish Want me to sport a tuft? I’ll oblige Or should I wear huge beads around my neck…? Tell me what I should do I’ll do that Lord Shiva! A tiger will only eat meat How can a leopard change its spots?

Your father has a doubt I’m clarifying it You’ll say my blood can’t be changed, right? I’ll get hold of 10 robust boys from your caste and go in for… …blood transfusion Full blood change I’ll become ‘fure’!! Have you come here to make trouble? Aiy- Kali, they are in a totally different league altogether Let’s go Hey! It’s not what you think, Chella I like his daughter She also has a soft corner for me I’m here to ask for her hand formally If I am not favoured ‘get out’ is all I need But the ‘get out’ should come from your daughter, Murthy sir Because we are both above 18 Let her decide I’m reminded of you day in and day out Whatever I do, you haunt me here I’ll take care of you like a princess If you like me, you don’t even have to express it, my dear Just lift your head That’s enough Otherwise just say no with your head bent I’ll say ‘bye’ and leave After that even if I walk down your street… …you can use all the swear words you know and hit me Look at Tamil poet Bharathi Isn’t he known for his famous song “There isn’t any caste or creed” Only the turban is missing We share the same moustache Think and then lift your head slowly Finiss…Finnis! So Murthy sir, will you fix an auspicious date or shall I? If my mother gets to know she’ll flash her 32 teeth… …and come rolling here! You didn’t believe me when I told you, did you? Imagine if someone has fallen even for my face- What, my dear? Listen to me You don’t have to sport a tuft or convert to vegetarianism Or have blood transfusion You just be yourself, enough But you have murdered a man She’s being really funny now! When he came to kill that poor officer… …weren’t you right there? Why didn’t you prevent me, like Gandhi’s ahimsa mode? I tried to prevent They tried to kill me too If everyone’s life is precious… …my life isn’t to me, huh? So I closed his chapter Who came forward as witness? Didn’t the policemen burst crackers and rejoice? What I did was only with best of intentions Let the law say so Can you accept your crime? Can you surrender? Let the Court decide what to do You come out a clean man If I do, will you marry me? Huh? I’ll wait for you She’s trying to bury you Don’t get fooled There are so many holes up there What will they do when it rains? Why did you call me, Kali? Just a small matter, sir I wanted to- Aren’t you Murthy? What’s the problem? No problem, sir I just have to surrender For what? Didn’t I kill Vajram? What is this, sir? I didn’t say- Only after Kali showed up this area is crime-free I can also go home early and sleep in peace I didn’t- Sir, he isn’t involved I’m surrendering voluntarily If I do something wrong I should be punished, right? Handcuff me, sir Don’t be insane! Sir, cuff me It’ll look stylish Visiting my in-laws has made me an out-law! Let’s go Okay? You’ll keep your word? I’ll be back soon Sir…sir, stop Greetings, sir Did we arrive at a good time? Auspicious time, sir Come…welcome Greetings! We were flooded with so many offers He has seen your daughter somewhere it seems He’s so insistent he will marry only your daughter – Mom…! – Please take a seat Murthy sir Let us see the bride I repeatedly told you like teaching a parrot Didn’t it enter your thick skull? Why the hell can’t you get ready? You want me to deceive the boy who is sitting in jail trusting me? Don’t do anything drastic I have to take care of your younger sister I shouldn’t be humiliated by the people known to us You don’t have to worry about all this Go ahead and marry him Father…! We can get married at the earliest auspicious date Don’t worry about expenditure I’ll make all the arrangements Glad to hear that Kali, something urgent it seems Our hopes are all dashed to the ground Why do you have a face fit for a funeral? Don’t be upset with me We should choose a bride befitting our face She packed you off to jail And set herself up with a wealthy man? Tomorrow morning is the wedding it seems Kali…what happened? Move…move aside Kali? He is escaping Sound the alarm Kali…wait Don’t do this I made you comfortable here You’ll be released in 1 week Don’t ruin it You won’t understand I have to go Listen to me Don’t show your rowdy side! You said you’ll wait for me You left me in the lurch If someone comes tip top and moneyed, that’s it, huh? You’ve got it all wrong I’m not for this wedding and I don’t like the groom My father threatened to swallow poison and die He forced me to agree I’ll marry him like a zombie Is that true? Oh God! I heard what I shouldn’t have Kalyani, what is wrong with you, huh? After coming this far and we are to be married tomorrow – Why were you silent, Kalyani? – My father didn’t let me You could have at least told me Tell me now Do you really love this- Hey! Do you love him? Tell me Something unforeseen may happen if you are here, let’s leave this place Don’t think too much Please, I’ll help you Kali…? Kiran, Madhu has come for her session now Whatever she says can’t be made into a game She is rambling about a Kali, Kalyani and Ravi Radhi, what state is Madhu in now? In a hypnotic state Must wake her up only now They uploaded 3 new games from our Bangalore unit CPU overload When the chase gets too competitive… …like a dog sticking her tail in between her legs …the machine went for a toss Just check it please Nothing to worry IC got burnt in the overload Shall I check now? Deadline is zooming in! Be with me please till I finish testing Move All these are Madhu’s illusions She told me about this Did Madhu design this game? No…no Kiran’s concept Designing was completed in our Bangalore office And only this morning he uploaded the trial version This one? Meera left this half done This was also fine tuned by our boss What twisted crap this is! It’s a very cheap game Worldwide such games are only popular From ages 7 to 77 all our addicts They let out their bottled up frustrations by playing these games Our company designs such crappy games? You know how much profit international companies make? We have also kept this ready as an underground project All this is courtesy corporate hand out Didn’t Meera jump down several floors just like this rape game? Why do you reopen closed chapters? I shouldn’t have called you There’s something fishy about this Don’t disturb me Meera used to take this? Your girl also takes All of us in our department take these capsules For what? It gives you such a high, the brain will break its control and enlarge New ideas will cascade like waterfall Otherwise how can we come up with all this? Dr Radhika prescribes them Bought by our company Simply super Madhu…? Madhumita Kalyani I’m Kalyani Okay, fine You are Kalyani Ravi saw you and Kali in the wedding hall Then what happened? ‘Ravi called us out pretending to help us’ ‘Kali was hesitant’ Why are you hesitating? I’ll help you Don’t think too much ‘So I decided and we both followed him’ Your son-in-law is not an ordinary man He’s smarter than a smart cookie! Customs raid in your son-in-law’s TV company The officers poked and probed dissecting us to bits and pieces Mr Ravi, you got license to import oranges And you’ve been busy smuggling picture tubes You’ve cheated the Govt That officer couldn’t be bribed He shut down and sealed the company Will your son-in-law spare him? He paid Vajram to kill the officer Kali came in between and threw a spanner in the works Hey Swaminathan How are you feeling now? Traitor…! This isn’t ‘dharma’ at all You can see if that ‘dharma’ saves your head now! –1 twist of the head, sir He got his ticket to heaven in that single moment Your son-in-law will come up tops ‘Go before anyone sees you’ Your daughter is his lucky mascot You will also do well in life Ka- How can you both be so dumb? Kalyani? Stop…stop the car Where are you going? Stop Where is Kali? Tell me the truth He wouldn’t have done anything wrong, sir Don’t do anything to him Ask him to surrender Otherwise…no one can save him Okay, we’ve reached your destination Why has he brought us here? – Where to? – Follow me Bombay Mail waits here for a few minutes for the signal You can board it and live happily ‘ever after’ You have such a golden heart Even I’m not so good hearted Can you lend me some money? I’ll return it through money order – Thanks a ton – For what? You saved us like God Don’t put me on a pedestal I am an ordinary man Jealousy, anger, vengeance and all that crap come naturally to me Like any other human being But He…the idiot! He’ll forgive wrong doers But I’m not God I shoot to kill That’s me Is this why you brought us to this Godforsaken place Starting trouble for this ‘tubelight’ In a wedding hall, with 100s of guests as witnesses, I can only get married What has he got that’s lacking in me? You are going overboard with your words and crossing limits How is ‘sir’? If he can get you to elope he must be a smooth operator! He must have given you immense pleasure?! Hey…I praised you just now with my words still in my throat You stink like garbage! I’ll slice your tongue Thanks to your ‘union’, in 8 months your junior will be delivered Should I bear the ‘father’ tag? – Hey! – Stop there Please stop What are you doing? Let go, you old man Is this the way to bring up your daughter? She has loved a scumbag and you tried to palm her off on to me Kali…don’t Let him go Imagine our plight if you murder him? You’ll be fine Don’t worry I’ll take you to the hospital Kali…! Don’t shoot Sleazeball! Scumbag! If I spit on it and leave it open it’ll become fine automatically I spared him only because of you Your Ahimsa principle! You’ll die only in my hands Come and save us I can’t open my eyes Mud in my mouth I can’t breathe Madhu…calm down I’m suffocated Madhu You remember even the year 1987 But you weren’t even born then Did someone tell you this story? – Father? – Sundaram…? You said your dad died when you were 10 I meant Kalyani’s father Murthy He draws for magazines Ask her if Murthy is still alive? You said Ravi killed Murthy No, he didn’t die He is alive ‘I took an active part in NSS when I was in school’ ‘We used to do a lot of social work’ ‘We went to an Old age home’ ‘We helped the elders there’ ‘We used to write letters’ ‘Take them out for a walk in the garden’ ‘And play with them’ What, grandpa? Kalyani? Let go of my hand After he buried you alive… …how did you escape from that brute? I’m not Kalyani Murthy, let go of her hand He was hurt and unconscious near a railway station They brought him here He was in coma for many years After he regained consciousness no one understood what he said He’ll always be sketching on the walls He hardly talks to anyone It’s a wonder he spoke to you Don’t hit me Madhu, have you told this to anyone? ‘I told the warden’ You shouldn’t take any of this seriously at all That grandpa claims he himself shot Gandhi He’ll keep asking us to hang him They are here because they ramble like this Just listen, ignore and move on I forgot all this Sweetheart? Do you know where Murthy is now? Kiran, don’t butt in I’m interrogating her, right? Do you know where Murthy is? You shouldn’t interrupt a session forcibly like this Goody-goody All of a sudden Wrong…I gave all these illegal tablets I medicated your office staff All for your sake Bloody…! Ravi…?! Murderer? You are the man she was talking about? Okay, dear Take all this off And show me where he is I won’t tell you Erase all records and finish her Check Madhu’s biodata FInd out from her school all the Old age Homes she visited I need the list Doctor, where’s Madhu? Kiran took her forcibly with him Ashwin? Where has Kiran taken Madhu? I don’t know Kiran won’t spare me He will kill me Why should he kill you? I know all that he did He was anxious to develop thrilling video games within a tight deadline I gave all these drugs listening to him By stimulating the minds of so many youngsters… …I’ve ruined their lives I followed Kiran’s orders Call the Police Send the cops to ‘Let’s talk’ a psychiatric clinic near Tidel Park What happened? My boss Kiran has kidnapped Madhu And tried to kill the doctor here Car key He might have a motive to kill you But why kidnap Madhu? Listen to this You’ll get all your answers Okay You’re Kalyani Who is Kali? “When I try to touch the horizon I realize it’s a mere illusion” “It even slides into oblivion” “Like the horizon’s distance You seem close this instance” “But when I come near you vanish into thin air” “Steady heart set on fire Dreams seared on a pyre” “Before you melt, my life dear will I see you I wonder?” “Like dew drops on leaves tender here and there we meander” “When the wind blows, we scatter Honey, with golden honey flavor” “Most painful distress is love’s suffering Even more heartless than life’s offering” “Away from you in darkness I melt into blankness” “I bury myself into the endless sky so blue” “Heart’s core torched Dreams to cinders scorched” “Before you melt into oblivion, love, will I meet you again?” “Like dew drops on leaves tender here and there we meander” “When the wind blows, we scatter Honey, with golden honey flavor” “Love wrings, throttling me Tears as rivulets run untiringly” “To remember is a pain, forget is in vain Life is an elongated emotional strain” “Like a raindrop lost in a dense forest why have you also gone, my dearest” “Like the root gravitates to water Girl, I’ll reach you wherever” “When eyes close tight I see a hundred hues bright” “Again when eyes open wide world becomes zero outside” “Though away for a little while you lamented big time volatile” “For many births do you know how a girl’s heart echoes in sorrow?” I’m sure they are Kiran’s me Madam, come out My leg is stuck inside Look there, Ashwin Welcome back to reality! Just you re-lax…relax You are heavily sedated! You aren’t fully conscious as yet – You are a killer – No…shh…sshhh! Why are you so tensed looking at me? You know you can’t do anything to me with this bottle! Come here…oh my God You even smell and feel like my Kalyani Please leave me How am I to blame for all this? How many…? When you first walked into my office for an interview That was your first mistake! The same Kalyani I saw –25 years ago…same face Felt like you came out alive from the same place I buried you! I was shell shocked But I was so happy to see you everyday Then came the shocker! You also gave that Ashwin first aid…what? –3 guys to bring this bag of bones! Oh my God! Think of the devil and here he comes That’s when I saw him again Outside the lift Oh yes…I know…he isn’t Kali Neither are you Kalyani But you could have been born elsewhere Could have gone anywhere But you didn’t! This fellow also could have been born or lived elsewhere But even he didn’t! What did you both do? Came back to me Back to my domain! Like pressing all over again the pause button of 1987 You both resumed your love cycle Every time I saw you a spear pierced my heart I tried to kill him in a car accident But his good fortune he escaped that day! Today your fate is playing a game in my form You cheated Kalyani and murdered her Hey! I was cheated I got cheated Not Kalyani! I didn’t get married after that…no…! So many girls have crossed my life like passing clouds…that’s it The next morning I won’t remember their name, face, profile…nothing! But a wife is different With respect…sex aside Everything can be shared in one’s life I was so happy I got a Kalyani to share it with But my dream was shattered! Kali tried to run away with Kalyani As a man I tried to stop it And did it I killed Then every bloody stranger on the road asked me… …why the girl I was supposed to marry eloped with a rowdy! Slap on my face! I was humiliated Again and again and again How many times! Ashwin, please don’t leave me again and go Classic love stories that stood the test of time …have always ended in tragedy! You’re a monster…demon! No, I am the devil Please leave me Oh no! I can’t You are the only 2 people alive who know my secrets inside out As you know, I’m the only one in our company who decides… …how every game should end! Now this game is also under my control This also, I’ll only decide how this should end Wondering how a guy who fainted got up? You’re cheating the whole world So I thought I should lightly- Mr Ravi Kiran…? I thought she was a fool all these days But you seem to be a bigger fool than her! You could’ve finished her in the clinic itself But you didn’t and brought her here Mistake number 1 Your boys could’ve shot me They brought me and dropped me here What a bunch of idiots! That’s mistake number 2 At least when we united here together, you could’ve shot us But you didn’t!

I’m practical If I kill him and go to jail, what will happen to Madhu? I want to live with her Spend my lifetime with her happily For 25 years he has covered up his murderous past Just shoot him and close the case, sir Law will take its course Now I’ll arrest and take him Sir, he’ll use his power and come out in a flash We don’t have any kind of strong evidence against him Shoot him, sir! First drop that knife, Ashwin If we spare his life he won’t let us live…kill him! Don’t listen to her Kill him Drop the knife Don’t spoil your future Drop the knife Ashwin, don’t…throw it away Kill him Kali..?

This place has changed so much Do you remember, Ashwin in 1962, before boarding the ship… …we ran down this road? There were many check posts here Ashwin, are you mad to bring her to Burma for your honeymoon? How many times do I tell you? Previous life and rebirth are all bunkum and bull! I saw you for the 1st time in the lift, in our office In this birth, before that day I’ve never set eyes on you Then how were you etched in my Burma memories?
