Amrapali (1966) Script

India.

2500 years ago, Lord Buddha had incarnated on this land to spread the message of peace.

In those days Ahjaaz Shatru ruled Magadh on the banks of the Ganges.

MAGADH In the north of the Ganges, was another state called Vaishali.

VAISHALI It had democratic rule.

What is Vaishali? A small state?!

Handful of army!

Your Majesty, we shouldn't underestimate their power.

You are forgetting the power of our army.

But Your Majesty, our army has fought several battles in the past six years.

Battle is the duty of a soldier.

The soldiers need rest and preparation.

A soldier only needs victory.

Till now, we have been victorious. And we will in the future too.

We won over Kusambi, and defeated Prasanjeet.

Now it's Vaishali's turn.

Take a break, Your Majesty.

Attack Vaishali immediately.

Emperor Ahjaaz Shatru.

Mother, please bless me.

To go where there will be storm of fire and blood?

By fighting those storms, one is known to be brave.

But what is the use of bravery which snatches sons from their mothers?

At present, you are concerned about the children of the mothers of Vaishali?

Because you are from Vaishali?

But don't forget that you are the Royal mother of Magadh.

The pride of Magadh is your pride.

The victory of Magadh is your victory.

And it's my duty to lay my life for both of them.

It is also your duty to learn from your father's mistakes.

He had attacked Vaishali twice. And was defeated.

My father's soul will rest in peace... when I will turn his defeat into victory.

But don't forget that it's impossible to defeat the army of Vaishali.

Because they don't fight to maintain a king's rule.

They fight for independence and to protect their self-respect.

-You cannot defeat them. -Royal Mother!

Have you forgotten that prediction... that Ahjaaz Shatru will reign the entire world.

Don't waste time. Bless me.

A message from the head of the state to the people.

Subjects of Vaishali, you are all being informed... that Ahjaaz Shatru, the king of Magadh has attacked Vaishali.

-Oh my God! -Run!

-Manu! -Ganesha!

Gurudev! Gurudev!

Hail Mahakal!

Hail Mahakal!


Oh my! Look at that gait!

Even a tortoise would be embarrassed.

Will you only walk fast when the killers are inside your homes?

Come on, walk fast.

Gurudev, here are Arya Som's clothes and weapons.

Dear, go and prepare for the farewell of the soldiers.

Will man kill another man to protect his principles?

Son, in this battle of principles, man doesn't kill another man.

High principles are like the earth... that gives life despite not being a mother.

It devours though it is not death.

But time is changing.

What do you mean?

Saturn is going to enter the space of Sun in Ahjaaz Shatru's path.

No matter what the stars indicate...

Ahjaaz Shatru will never enter Vaishali.

Move the army ahead.

Army, move ahead!


Let's attack from the mountain and take them towards the river.


O Lord, protect my Vaishali.

Make the army victorious.

Our army will be victorious, Amrapali.

You have prayed for the country and army.

Won't you pray for this artist?

I definitely would, if you were merely an artist.

But at present, you are the form of Lord Shiva.

I ask of you.

I will definitely give you whatever you ask for.

Bring me Ahjaaz Shatru's head.

Attack!


Surround them. They shouldn't escape.

Get down.


Your Majesty! Your Majesty.

You are badly wounded, Your Majesty.

Don't worry about me.

Go back to the battlefield, immediately.

But how can I leave you in this condition?

Follow my orders.

Our army should not know that I have been wounded.

Go immediately, Veer.

-Go. -As you command, Your Majesty.


My mother says that Ahjaaz Shatru is dreadful.

He also devours children.

Sister, if I pray to God for his death, will he die?

His death is not so easy.

Soldier!

Soldier, did Vaishali lose?

No.

Did Ahjaaz Shatru lose?

-No. -What do you mean?

Vaishali is victorious.

Vaishali is victorious.

Vaishali is victorious?

Vaishali is victorious.

Vaishali is victorious.

Vaishali is victorious.

Vaishali is victorious.

My Vaishali is victorious.

My Vaishali is victorious.

My Vaishali is victorious.

Soldier, you are wounded.

Come with me. Come.

-Vaishali is victorious. -Vaishali is victorious.

-Vaishali is victorious. -Vaishali is victorious.

-Vaishali is victorious. -Vaishali is victorious.

His Majesty's clothes.

Ranbir, I think His Majesty has gone towards Vaishali.

Inform Balbhadrasen immediately... that if His Majesty comes there, obey his every order.

As you command.

Oh God! This is...

Don't be afraid.

The arrow that couldn't kill me won't even hurt me while it is being removed.

Remove it.

Hold this between your teeth and close your eyes.

I will close my eyes only once.


Wipe your sweat.

And burn my wound.

Soldier.

What is your name?

Soldier.

That's all?

A soldier's destiny is... that he should fight anonymous, and die anonymous.

You did not tell your name.

Kulpati Mahanaam's pupil, Amrapali.

Amrapali.

Very beautiful.

Can I tell you something?

You are truly brave.

Can I say something?

You are very beautiful.


I haven't lost!

Mother.

But it is my time.

I will win. I will definitely win. Definitely.

Malu, return as soon as possible.

What are you doing?

Have you brought the grass? Place it in front of the cow.

And wake him up. Will he remain asleep?

He is lying with so much ease.

Hey, wake up. It's dawn.

Tell the attendant to play the music.

Oh my!

What happened?

He calls you an attendant.

-And what services does he want? -Play the music.

He will wake up on the waves of the music.

All right Commander, the attendant will play a different tune.

Did you like it?

I will give you a death sentence.

Are you a king? You parents are ordinary people... and you're acting like a king!

Let me see how you give me a death sentence.

Pardon me, Amrapali.

I wasn't completely awake.

I wonder what I said.

Not just now, even at night.

"Mother, I haven't lost. I will definitely win."

Can I ask you something?

When our Vaishali has won, who defeated you?

Who defeated me?

I won't tell you.

-Come on. -Where?

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

Long life the motherland.

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

-Long live the motherland! -Long live the motherland!

-Long live the motherland! -Long live the motherland!

-Long life Vaishali! --Long life Vaishali!

-Long life Vaishali! -Long life Vaishali!

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

-Long life Vaishali! -Long life Vaishali!

He is the one. If he slips out of your hands, you will be punished.

-Long life Vaishali! -Long life Vaishali!

-Long live the brave soldiers! -Long live the brave soldiers!

-Long life Vaishali! -Long life Vaishali!


Go.

Greetings, Your Majesty.

"Your Majesty"? What are you talking about?

Balbhadrasen?

Accept my salutation, Your Majesty.

Please come.


Greetings, Your Majesty.

I've made arrangement for your accommodation in Chetakvan.

-When is the public meeting? -After the celebration.

In this meeting, emphasize of the proposition of reducing the army.

Assure the members that now such a huge army is not required.

As you command.

Divert their attention to dance and music.

And make the people drown in liquor.

-And then... -The Magadh army will attack.

Sure.


Soldier!

I saved you from Ahjaaz Shatru. What will I get as a reward?

I thought I'd have to wait for the next battle, to meet you.

It is not necessary that I will be wounded in the next battle too.

Oh yes, how is your wound?

You had burnt it, but it did not heal.

Pali.

-Som! -Pali.

Som!

Som. Som. Som. Som.

How are you, Pali?

Great! You had gone to put your life at stake... and you are asking me?

You tell me. How was your experience?

It was bad in a way, Pali.

I couldn't bring Ahjaaz Shatru's head for you.

-I won't talk to you. -But Pali...

Never mind. My Gurudev's son is back, that's enough.

What happened, Pali?

Let's go home, uncle.

Not yet.

All right. What do you want?

-Give me this one. -Sure.

-Give me a fresh one. -Yes, one for me too!

A message to the people from the Head of the State.

Tonight in the public hall of Vaishali... the Head of the State will address the subjects.

And on this occasion, the new royal courtesan of Vaishali will be chosen.

Pali, what if I am chosen as the Royal Courtesan?

-But you will have to dance first. -We will.

-Chandrasena! -Chandrasena is here!

-Hail Chandrasena! -Hail Chandrasena!

-Hail Chandrasena! -Hail Chandrasena!

-Hail Chandrasena! -Hail Chandrasena!

-Hail Chandrasena! -Hail Chandrasena!

-Long live the State Head. -Long live the State Head.

-Long live Vaishali. -Long live Vaishali.

-Long live the State Head. -Long live the State Head.

According to the teacher's preaching, education in itself is an ornament.

Praveni Grantha (sacred book) will establish all the self-interest of students.

My dear friends...

I congratulate on your victory.

And I also request... that don't take it to be a victory... for which you are celebrating today.

That you have won and your enemy has lost.

Real victory will be... when instead of burning the enemy's dummy... one will burn the feeling of enmity from his heart.

The real victory will be when every haughty king will give up his sword, like Siddharth, and set out to win the heart of humanity.

Come. While celebrating the victory, let's take an oath that we will use human power for the well-being of humanity.

And we won't rest in peace until the word 'battle' is wiped off from this world.

-Long life Vaishali! -Long life Vaishali!

Begin the celebration.


This is not right.

-Who's that? -Quiet!

The speed is not right.

-I said it is not right. -Silence, lady.

Respected sir, it is a custom... that only the teacher can point out a mistake and prove it.

If another person is not able to prove the mistake he will be punished.

Respected sir, either this lady should prove the mistake or she should be punished.

Lady, you have to prove the mistake.


Play the same note again.

-Excellent! -Excellent!

-Wonderful! -Wonderful!


-Excellent! -Excellent!

Wonderful!

Come and face the public, lady.

Your Guru?

Kulpati Mahanaam.

-Your name? -Amrapali.

-Your mother's? -My mother... Vaishali.

-Hail Vaishali! -Hail Vaishali!

Father?

Vaishali.

-Long live Amrapali! -Long live Amrapali!

-Long live Amrapali! -Long live Amrapali!

You are great. Only because of citizens like you Vaishali is blessed.

Friends, the talented artists of Vaishali have chosen Amrapali as the Royal Courtesan for next three years.

-Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali! -Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali!

-Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali! -Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali!

-Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali! -Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali!

-Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali! -Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali!

-Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali! -Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali!

-Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali! -Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali!

-Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali! -Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali!

-Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali! -Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali!

-Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali! -Long live Royal Courtesan Amrapali!

"Don't worry." I've been hearing this since many days.

Nobody can cause harm His Majesty in Vaishali till Balbhadrasen is there.

Don't give me assurance, Veer.

How can I forget that he is in the rival country?

His life is at risk all the time.

But what is the reason? What has stopped him?

Now what's on his mind?

He isn't telling that either.

Now what could it be, Veer?

Royal Mother...

an Emperor has faced such a big defeat.

Perhaps he wants to understand why.

I hope his defeat transforms into a pious victory.

Some ultimate truth should enter his soul.

Someone should show him the light of love.

Amrapali, the entire city had showered flowers on you.

What's so special about this flower that you keep looking at it?

Malu, my life resides in that flower.

Pali, flowers wither... and memories too.

But, not love.

Then why didn't he come since so many days?

He will definitely come.

Today is my first performance. With this excuse.

What is that love which looks for excuses to blossom and can't become its own excuse?

Pali, the one who didn't come till now, will not come even today.

He will.

-Meaning? -I mean...

Vaishali's victory was impossible without those unique weapons.

-Unique weapons? -Yes.

Like the cannon which was used in this battle.

I know.

And they are still in search of such inventions which will shoot fire and stones.

And then the same handful of army will destroy the much bigger army.

Where are these weapons made?

There's a secret place in the State Head's palace.

-Perhaps there. -"Perhaps"?

Till now, you never said anything with confidence!

The State Head is coming to watch Amrapali's performance tonight.

-Okay? -Sure, Your Majesty.


Pali, where are you lost?

"Under the blue sky The dawn and the dusk unite"

"The heart flies away like a bird"

"We remain lost"

"Under the blue sky The dawn and the dusk unite"

"The heart flies away like a bird"

"We remain lost"


"When a flower smiles"

"I get the fragrance Of my beloved"

"There's a strange feeling"

"Awakens a desire"

"The heart flies away like a bird"

"We remain lost"

"Under the blue sky The dawn and the dusk unite"

"The heart flies away like a bird"

"We remain lost"


"Says the light of time"

"A moon is about to come"

"The thirst of these eyes"

"He is going to quench"

"When the leaves rustle"

"I wait in aspiration"

"The heart flies away like a bird"

"We remain lost"

"Under the blue sky The dawn and the dusk unite"

"The heart flies away like a bird"

"We remain lost"

Soldier!

Respected sir, he is the soldier who had chased Ahjaaz Shatru till the bank of Ganges.

And saved my life from the burning dummy during the celebration.

I see. Come here, brave soldier. Sit beside me.

Soldier, weapons are prohibited here.

Come. Sit here.


Bless you.

Soldier...

Meet me at the war school in the afternoon.

As you command, respected sir.

Soldier, why did you create this ruckus to meet your beloved?

What's the meaning of this?

You were ready to fight so many guards alone.

What do you think of yourself?

-What do you think I am? -A small kid.

-Is it? -Yes.

And do you know how I hit him? Like this.

Has the wound healed?

Hope it doesn't pain.

Soldier, how do you feel while injuring someone?

I don't know. I just attack.

After that, who lives and who dies...

who thinks about all that?

Nobody's name is inscribed on a sword and arrow, Amrapali.

But the one who wounds has his own name.

Even you might have a name. Please tell me.

What's in a name, Amrapali?

I have several faces.

One gets entangled in the bonds of love and attachment.

And the other gets lost in the depths looking for secrets.

One wanders in the battlefield and tells every corpse

"Mind you, my war is not over yet."

Amrapali, if all these faces of mine ever come back...

I won't be able to reside in any of the palaces of Vaishali.

But you can reside in my heart.


Soldier...

Soldier.

You?

You are putting your life at risk.

Don't go there. I think they suspect.

If I don't go, they will suspect even more.

You don't worry, Balbhadrasen.

Okay, Your Majesty.


Salutation, Respected sir.

Come, soldier. I was waiting for you.

A while ago, I realized that you are a useful man.


Exactly like him.

Ahjaaz Shatru.

Have you seen Ahjaaz Shatru?

I have, sir.

And yourself too.

-Yes. -Did you notice any difference?

I've heard that Ahjaaz Shatru is out of Magadh.

What if you are held captive in the war school of Vaishali?

So...

What will Magadh go through?

It isn't brave of Vaishali to hold an armless man captive.

But it is politics.

You couldn't understand the meaning of what I said.

We can use your looks which are similar to Ahjaaz Shatru.

Can use your looks?!

What for?

What for?

It is necessary to know this first!

What is in the mind of the State Head.

And we can know this only from his special advisers.

Which is not a simple thing.

It will take time.

Until then, I request that you shouldn't meet anybody.

Not even me.

I will keep you informed.

And for God's sake, don't meet Amrapali too.

You are right, Balbhadrasen.

It will happen.

I will not meet anybody.

Not even Amrapali.

"Remembering you"

"The whole night will pass"

"You have taken away"

"My sleep"

"Remembering you"

"The whole night will pass"

"You have taken away"

"My sleep"

"Remembering you"

"My heart resides"

"In an unknown city"

"My heart resides"

"In an unknown city"

"It seeks something"

"In the lost paths"

"In such a big palace"

"I feel afraid"

"You have taken away"

"My sleep"

"Remembering you"


"From this fire of separation"

"You must save me"

"From this fire of separation"

"You must save me"

"If you can't come"

"Call me in your dreams"

"Don't torment me like this"

"My love is fresh"

"You have taken away"

"My sleep"

"Remembering you"

"The whole night will pass"

"You have taken away"

"My sleep"

"Remembering you"

"Remembering you"

"Remembering you"

Be careful.

Slowly.

Slowly.

Slowly.

Som...

Som, where had you been?

I won't talk to you.

A least you will hear what I've come to say.

You won't talk or hear.

But don't close your eyes.

Here.

No! No! No!

I said I won't see.

How long will you stand in front of me?

I won't see.

One Amrapali in front of the other. Both are rocks.

Rocks?

Som.

Som!

This is the realization of a dream, Pali.

A dream of beauty which I had seen.

From breaking the rock to witnessing the horrible end of the war that dream followed me like a shadow.

Today, after this statue is complete, I'm separated from my dream.

An artist was separated from his dream and Amrapali was separated from her beauty.

Your beauty is immortal like God and truth, Pali.

Make one more statue.

Isn't one Amrapali enough on this earth?

Amrapali is nothing compared to that complete man whose statue you will make now.

If I can enter your soul and become like this wonder what will my soldier become after immersing in the same nectar?

There will be the radiance of 100 suns on his face.

Seeing him, you will say, "Pali was right."

And then you won't even realise when a person immersed in your soul.

And when the statue came to life.

Why do you look disturbed, Som?

Because I have to make your soldier immortal with the rock.

Som.

What else do you want, soldier?

Stand there.

Who are you?

Oh, it's you!

Why have you come here?

To make your statue and make your immortal.

So the cause and medium of my immortality will be rock and clay?

No. Amrapali.

A woman!

A woman won't be the medium of my immortality.

I will write my name of history with my achievements.

I am saying it again.

There will be no other medium of your immortality except Amrapali.

The decision is in the hands of the coming times.

Go away from here!

The decision is in my hands.

I said go away!

Give way.


Remember one thing.

I don't like to remember.

And a Royal Courtesan should remember a soldier who doesn't even have a name.

Amrapali.

You are playing with fire.

If I was afraid of getting burnt

I wouldn't have come here breaking all the inhibitions.

Don't worry, Royal Mother.

Trust me. His majesty will soon return.

These are false stories, son.

I know his stubbornness.

I am his mother.

I just wished... to see him once.

Just once.

Don't be disheartened, Royal Mother.

I swear at your feet.

That I will bring His Majesty back to Magadh very soon.

I'll take your leave.

Som.

Som.

Which deep worry are you lost in, son?

This hands have made several statues till today.

But today for the first time my hands stop... while carving the features of a face.

My mind panics.

I feel that face was in front of me just now and... and it vanished.

Instead of worrying like this, go and see that face again.

Do you also wish to ask anything, soldier?

-Today I've come to say something. -Without asking?

I want to tell... before anybody asks me...

what you mean to me.

Why are we?

What will we be?

We and...

Tell me what will we be.

I will come to your chamber to answer these questions.

You will find me waiting for you.

You are very ruthless, soldier.

Tonight will take several years to come.

Your Majesty... your subjects know that you are not in Magadh.

Tomorrow, even the people here might know this truth.

Just think. Your life could be in danger then.

I don't fear anything!

There's a woman named Amrapali.

I've heard that a great man is entangled in her love.

That great man does not take advice from his subordinate.

But that subordinate can at least remind that great man of his principles.

The protection of Magadh is our principle, Your Majesty.

I will think of every solution to fulfill it.

My duty is to be devoted to my master.

I will fulfill it.

You are being associated with that dancer.

She might hand you over to the authorities any moment.

Veer!

Every women in the world can play with my life.

Except Amrapali.

-This is your opinion. -It is my belief.

It burns in my soul like a flame.

Magadh is fortunate that it hasn't taken a rigorous form.

Or else it would've destroyed your rule long back.

Impossible!

My Amrapali will love my kingdom as much as we do.

Today, I am going to tell Amrapali... that I am Ahjaaz Shatru.

Angad.

Before His Majesty meets that dancer... we will finish her.


-Oh Lord! -What happened?

I forgot Pali's stole.

Why didn't you forget yourself.

Go and get it immediately.

Sunder, the Royal mother has expired.

-Malvika... -Yes?

-Look who it is. -You. Who else?

Is that me?

These ornaments, these clothes.

I look so ugly.

What will he think of me?

For a soldier, you are more beautiful than a celestial beauty.

Hope he doesn't return from the door.

He had promised to come in the evening.

Go and see.

Amrapali, now you are not yourself anymore.

You have no right on yourself.

Now you belong to him.

Only to him. To your lord.

The Lord of my heart.

Lord, a noble person has come.

You?

Som, you have come on a very auspicious day.

Have you made the statue?

What is this?

It's the moment of you to see the truth.

Then why are you standing between me and the truth?

Move aside.


Som, this is...

Yes, Pali, He is the one.

Do you remember? You had said, "Som, bring his head."

You asked for something and I brought something else.

The death of your love. But I couldn't help it, Pali.

It wasn't in my control to deny the truth.

In nobody's control.

Anyway...

I'll take your leave for lifetime.

One thing is very unique about your artists.

Whether there is an occasion or not, you all talk about lifetime.

What's the matter?

Oh!

I wondered why my Amrapali doesn't talk to me.

I was talking to your statue.

A great artist has made you with five elements.

And the other has carved you in rock.

Today even I have come to carve a statue.

The statue of our fates together.

Attack, Amrapali.

Attack.

Why did you stop?

You won't be able to attack me.

Not because you are a coward.

It is because you love me.

You love me.

You love me.

You love me.

Ambe!

Ambe!


Ambe.

You didn't even hear what I wanted to say.

You didn't even ask what will we be.

From now on, you are not the Royal Courtesan of Vaishali.

-But the queen of Magadh. -Go away from here.

I will. But not alone.

You will come with me.

I will make you sit on the throne of Magadh.

This will never happen.

I will lay my life, but never leave Vaishali.

You will leave Vaishali, Ambe. For me.

I said, I won't go alone.

I will destroy the whole world, for you.

My fire of anger will reduce your Vaishali to ashes forever.

Reduce my Vaishali to ashes?

No! No! No!

No!


-Veer, where are you going? -Magadh.

Impossible.

I won't go to Magadh without Amrapali.

You will have to come, Your Majesty.

My command should be obeyed.

I request you, Your Majesty.

It's very important for you to be in Magadh right now.

You don't know what tragedy has taken place in the royal palace.

What has happened?

The Royal Mother

-has expired. -What?

Royal Mother...

Mother!

Bestow peace on your unfortunate daughter.

Give me the shelter of your immortal truths.

And make me turn to dust.

Please help.

Please help, O merciful one.

Please help.

Please help.

Your Majesty!

Your Majesty!

Greetings, Your Majesty.

Lachvi Community has given up its principles.

Our army is ready for a new attack.

The army is waiting for you.

Awaiting a defeated man?

Not a man, an Emperor.

Move ahead and give orders, Your Majesty.

We won't find a better opportunity than this.

Your army will destroy every palace in Vaishali.

Someone lives in a palace of Vaishali, Veer.

You don't become the army chief and encourage war.

An Emperor is also a human being.

Even he might have desires.

Veer.

Today, I am not an Emperor.

I am a human being.

A lover.

A lover.

If God shows His grace, your desire will be fulfilled very soon.


Amrapali, the palanquin is ready.

It is not too late.

Think about it once again.

Why do you reject God's grace?

Malu, just look at my condition!

Reaching the highest peak of name, fame and wealth...

I resided in a beautiful palace, and I was ruined.

Now I won't be able to stay here, Malu. I will die.

If the State Head permits, let's go to the village.

No, Malu. Now I will go where I don't remember anyone.

Will you run away from yourself? But just think--

Who are you?

I am Emperor Ahjaaz Shatru's messenger.


I don't even know the person whose name you mentioned.

The one with whom you are united by body and soul... he has gone from your memories?

From my heart too.

Because he resided in your heart.

Have you come as a messenger or to entangle me in words?

I've just come to beg for my Emperor's happiness.

Today, he seems as if he is dead.

He seems alive just because he is yet to be cremated.

My country and Emperor will be blessed... only when you become the queen of Magadh.

In other word, should I become a traitor?

Your ignorance has no limit, guest.

Do you think my Vaishali is a barren piece of land which I should forsake?

No!

My Vaishali is a culture.

It has blended in my values.

It has become a part of my faith.

It is my queen mother.

Who thinks that winning over body and soil is lowly.

Can I unite with her killer forever?

Never!

I hate him.

So is this statue the proof of that hatred?

And is it because of hatred, that you have kept it so close?

And is this weapon the memory of that hatred?

This shouldn't be here.

It will torment you day and night.

It's better for you that I take this weapon away from here.

Go away!

Go away!

You are burning between love and duty, Amrapali.

How will you spend your life?


Amrapali, face the court.

Friends, Amrapali wants to give up the position of the Royal Courtesan.

-But how can she do that? -Why does she want to give up?

But why?

And who can replace her?

Who is a patriot like her?

I request the public... to accept my plea.

-Never! -Never!

-I request you all. -No, we won't accept it.

Why not?

Don't you believe that there is no other patriot like Amrapali?

Don't you remember? One day Amrapali had said in this court that Vaishali is both, her mother and father.

A noble woman who always took the love for Vaishali as her duty today she is pleading in front of you all.

And you all refuse to accept her request?

Why not?

We should know what inconvenience is she facing here.

Why does she want to give up her position?

Who wants to give up such a high position?

The one who got honor, love and wealth from the public.

Is there any patriot who is not satisfied after getting all this?

But even Ms. Amrapali is a patriot.

If she wants to give up everything... there has to be a big reason.

-What sort of reason? -Tell us.

Yes, what is the reason?

Tell us.

Tell us the reason.

What is the reason? Why don't you tell us?

Tell us.

She won't be able to tell.

Because shyness is a woman's quality.

Don't forget that it is the custom of our state... that a girl can't get married till she is the Royal Courtesan.

I am not giving up the position for marriage.

Then what for?

Head of the state and Mahanam know... that the brave soldier is your lover.

Not for him.

Trust me. I want to go just like that, not for marriage.

I am not at peace here. I want to go far away.

Friends, she wants to go far away.

She is an ideal patriot.

The love which takes her away from her duty... she won't even accept that love.

She will always burn in the fire of separation.

But she will never get married.

Will you all be able to see her sorrow?

-Never. -Never.

Don't worry.

There is no other patriot like Amrapali.

She will never hurt her citizens.

Lady, we all wish to see you as a bride.

Where is that brave soldier?

He...

-He went away. -Where?

We will bring him back.

Where has he gone?

Why don't you speak?

Where is that soldier?

Why are you silent? If you know, tell me where he is.

Maybe she doesn't know.

Doesn't know?

Who is he? Is he the same soldier?

You are under the oath of Vaishali.

Have you ever met him before?

Yes.

Friends...

The captive whom Amrapali is friendly with is the army commander of Magadh.

Yes, the army commander of Magadh.

-We will set him ablaze. -We will hack him into pieces.

And the one whom Amrapali is in love with, is the Emperor of Magadh.

Ahjaaz shatru.

She fell in love with our hardcore enemy.

She is a traitor, not a patriot.

No! Please don't call me a traitor.

I haven't done anything wrong.

I will say that I did fall in love... but I am not a traitor.

I sacrificed my love for the sake of Vaishali.

I refused to become the queen of Magadh.

You may have.

Do you all know? This woman had met this man this morning.

And she wants to leave Vaishali in the evening.

Now don't you understand where she wanted to go?

-She is a sinner. -She is a sinner.

-She is not a patriot! -She is a sinner!


Amrapali.

Where is the army commander?

Where is the army commander?

Your Majesty.

Amrapali has been imprisoned.

-Offense? -To love Emperor Ahjaaz Shatru.

-Punishment? -Death on the full moon night.

Ambe!


Ambe.

Ambe.

Ambe.

Ambe, I am here. Your soldier is here.

Ambe.

Open your eyes.

-I am not a traitor. -Ambe!

-Ambe. -I am not a traitor.

Ambe.

Ambe. Ambe!

Who says you are a traitor?

Now you are the queen of Magadh and Vaishali both.

My queen.

I destroyed the Vaishali which stigmatized you.

-Destroyed? -Yes, Ambe.

-Destroyed Vaishali? -Yes, Ambe.


Identify all of them.

They were the people who wanted to snatch you from me.

Wanted to obstruct our union.

This had to be their end.

And he is the Head of Vaishali who wanted to set you ablaze.

Today he is longing for his own pyre.

Not like this, Ambe. Like this.

See to your heart's content.

Today our love has triumphed. We have triumphed.

You have triumphed.

So much destruction, for me?

For a woman?

For a beloved.

For my love.

This is selfishness. Blind desire of victory which made you do all this.

No, Ambe. There was only one way to reach you.

War. Which I did not fight for victory... but for love.

To get you.

And it is called the war of principles.

Principles are not nurtured with blood, Emperor.

And neither one has to commit bloodshed to prove his love.

The destruction of Vaishali was the only way.

They killed Veer, wanted to set you ablaze.

What else could I do?

You could live in my memory.

The way I hid your memory in my heart.

If you too loved my memory after my death... this wouldn't have happened.

But now, everything is over.

No, Ambe.

Our life has begun now.

I will give you all the happiness in the world.

Because you give me the greatest joy of heart.

Love.

Now we will live together forever.

No.

No. No!

How can I live with that man... who widowed several women for the sake of one woman?

Snatched sons from mothers and brothers from sisters.

Caused bloodshed in the name of love.

-Ambe. -No. No...

Now these hands are not of a lover.

But of a killer, smeared with blood.

Ambe.

Don't look at me with such disgust.

Don't look at me with such disgust.

Disgust?

I don't detest anybody.

There is so much hatred everywhere... that I want to go far away.

Where will you go?

Where?
