Fanaa (2006) Script

Our India is the best...

...of all the world by far.

Our India is the best...

...of all the world by far.

We are it's buds.

It is our garden, all ours, ours.

Our India is the best...

...of all the world by far.

This way.

Our tomorrow is based on our today.

What we choose to do today will decide...

...what happens to us tomorrow.

The choice isn't between good and evil.

That's easy.

The real choices of life are choosing between...

...the lesser of two evils, or the greater of two goods.

Now what do you choose, Zooni, what's your choice?

Oh, leave my little girl alone!

Just listen to your heart dear...

...not your father's philosophy!

Try and take some decisions...

...from the heart rather than the brain, Zulfi.

If I'd used my brain you wouldn't be here, Nafisa my love.

So, Zooni?

Papa, Mama, I really can't decide.

I'll do whatever you say.

So that's it. It's decided.

Zooni will not go to Delhi.

I found my prince. When will Zooni find hers?

When will some footballer hit her head with a ball?

Any regrets?

Regrets?

I praise God every day that the great Zulfikar Ali Beg's...

...penalty kick missed the goal...

...and hit me square on the head.

It was my worst kick ever!

Any regrets?

Regrets?

That's why I tended to you in the hospital for a week.

We must accept that Zooni...

...may have to live her life without that special someone.

That perhaps she will never marry.

And when we're gone who will look out for her?

We must give her the chance to live her life.

We need to support her independence.

Be her strength, not her weakness.


Madam Mehbooba.

Bobo, the name is Bobo not Mehbooba.

Whatever you command your highness.

By the way, your bags weigh more than your brain!

Obviously! Haven't you heard that saying?

Which one? "The buffalo is bigger than the brain."

No dummy, it's "Is the brain bigger or the buffalo?"

Fatty! - Not Fatty, Fatima.

Don't know why you girls insist on distorting perfectly good names.

Yes, Ruby. - Not Ruby, Rubina.

Come on... take the bags at least!

We have to represent Kashmir, at a Republic Day performance...

...at the President's Palace, in front of the Chief Minister of Delhi...

...and what do I have to pull this off?

A bunch of wild cats!

If we're a bunch of wild cats what does that make our leader?

Who said that?

You've carried your knitting?

When we're upset, we say things to distract...

"Have you taken your knitting?"

"Kept your ticket safely?"

"Don't get off at a station on the way."

God keep you safe.

Papa... papa! When papa's upset, not just his voice.

His walk also changes.

Yes, and he can't even cry in front of all these girls.

But I have no such problem!

I know you have to do this...

...but I don't know why, I'm afraid.

Afraid of what?

Loosing me to some prince?

Oh, I wish!

One look at you, and he'll be on his knees.

Heaven forbid! Will he be a porter?

Kneel to get my bags? - Hush!

Not a porter, not your bags, he'll take your heart away.

With some poetry maybe...

..."Every once in a while I get this feeling in my heart..."

"...that you were made for me, all apart."

"You were living in the mountains somewhere..."

"...before there was me."

"You have been called down to this earth, only for me."

God keep you safe, my child, God keep you safe!

God keep you, mama.

Have a safe journey.

Be sure to say a prayer for me at the Jama Masjid. - Yes, mama.

Take Zooni for an eye test in the big city...

...and you, Rubina take care of my baby!

Relax Aunty.

Don't worry, I'm here aren't I?

That's what I'm afraid of Fatima.

It's Fatty, aunty.

Bye dear, Bye Zooni!

Mama! Mama!

Yes, my child!

If the Prince recites poetry what should I say?

"May my life's breath find refuge in your heart..."

"...destroyed in your love may my life depart."

Bye Mama!


Why do you do this?

You can say something as well.

Now listen up Rao. We're here for just 7 days.

5 days to the show, and 2 for holidaying.

I want to sight- see Delhi, not your bald head.

Stand straight like a man!

I'm not even a man any more Madam.

After years of bowing to government officers...

...I have come to this sorry state.

Today if I have children, even they will be born bent over.

I have no interest in your family planning program!

Where is that tour guide?

I am the Balwaan. Not the Cartoon Network.

You are exactly what you look like!

Now tell me what's the problem here?

Where do I start?

From the head light to the exhaust...

...there are problems and more problems.

I mean your tour guide. Where on earth is he?

"Don't look around the city Forget the wasteland too"

"Behold God's greatest creation. Rehan is just above you."

You Mr. Romeo. Stop this cheap poetry!

You didn't applaud me, now atleast help me.

Oh, you're blind.

Yes, you didn't see that? Are you blind too?

Thank God, I'm not.

That's a nice thing to say to a blind person.

If I was blind, I couldn't have seen...

...the most beautiful thing in the world, you.

"Your beauty made God make a mistake, what more can i say?"

"So that you don't caste an evil eye on yourself, he took your eyes away."

Zooni, where are you?

I'm coming Fatty.

Fatty? Is that your name or your dog's?

Come on Balwante...

...hit the gas!


Heavenly!

If wish I was a roll of wool...

If wish I was a roll of wool...

...wrapped around her fingers...

If you were a roll of wool, with the needles... I'd...

I wish she'd make a sweater out of me, wear me, even in the summer.

Wow! What a thought!

Zooni, stop encouraging his nonsense.

"I am not the flower jasmine, I am the flower rose."

"I am your lifelong admirer, not of your friend sitting close."

Hey Mr. Guide, your cheap poetry is going to get you nowhere.

So, who are you knitting this sweater for?

She's knitting it for a prince, not for a devil like you.

And if she was interested in you...

...she would speak up not sit silent.

Oh, so she does speak?

I knew she was blind, thought she was mute too.

Zooni! Don't talk to him, you don't know these men...

Looks like you know men very well.

Stupid guide.

"If you sit there in silence, regret it you will."

"So often after silence, love has awakened, stronger still."

"There is no limit to human desire..."

"There is no limit to human desire, no dearth."

"After 2 yards of burial cloth, we still want 2 yards of earth."

Superb!

Superb! Outstanding!

"I'll look pain square in the eye, face every test laid out for me."

"For the sake of your friendship, dear friend, I'll even love my enemy."

Oh yeah, I love your style!

The emperor Shah Jahan once walked these lanes of the Red Fort.

And so did Mumtaz, his very, very beautiful wife. - Careful!

I can manage myself.

But how will I manage myself around you?

Shall we?

Bobo, tell me, what does he look like?

Killer, girl! A real killer.

He's simply obnoxious!

He looks ok, so I thought he must be a nice guy...

...but he called me a stupid girl... so...

And forget all his sweet talk...

...the way he looks at women, its shameful!

And he told me he doesn't believe in God. Can you imagine that?

Look even the crows are cawing. It's a sign.

Stay away from that Rehan guide.

"How can you stay away from me and go?"

"How can your heart forget me so?"

"That fragrance on your breath is me."

"How ever will you stop, not breathe?"

Great! Fabulous!

Come on, let's go.

Come.


If the moon was to recommend me.

This is what he'd say to you.

I want to drop the veil of decency.

I want to cross the line with you.

I insist on destroying myself.

On destroying myself in you.

If the moon was to recommend me.

This is what he'd say to you.

I want to drop the veil of decency.

I want to cross the line with you.


Your charms are like a gentle breeze.

Let them touch me as you pass.

Your every move a graceful branch.

Please move into my heart.

Come into my arms, any excuse will do.

For I must, I must destroy myself in you.

If the moon was to recommend me.

This is what he'd say to you.

I want to drop the veil of decency.

I want to cross the line with you.


If I tell you my true intentions.

I'm sure they'll make you blush.

If I make you hear my heartbeats.

I'm sure they'll leave you flushed.

But I cannot hide my feelings true.

For I must, I must destroy myself in you.

If the moon was to recommend me.

This is what he'd say to you.

I want to drop the veil of decency.

I want to cross the line with you.

I insist on destroying myself.

On destroying myself in you.


Stand straight. Looking at you I'm getting a backache.

And you Mr. Cartoon Network...

...we have to leave for rehearsal at exactly 9 AM tomorrow.

So then leave.

It's me. Rehan.

I know. Only you can be so impudent.

I want to be even more impudent.

I want you to run away with me.

I want to show you Delhi.

Without your bodyguards, don't say no, not without thinking atleast.

You'll anyway be thinking about me so...

God forbid, the crows are cawing.

I'll wait for you after the rehearsal tomorrow. With these crows.

You have had more girls in your life than there is mileage on my bus.

Why do you want this blind girl?

What can I do Balwante, everyone wants the moon.

There's just one headlight in the sky, that shows us the way.

Now you want that too?

"They say in love you always loose sleep.

I wish someone would love me, I bloody sleep and sleep and sleep."

Let's go.

Zooni! You must be tired, go to sleep.

I am awake after so many years.

I can't sleep now. I can't sleep now.

I want to be even more impudent, I want you to run away with me.

Why aren't you concentrating?

Can I use your phone?

Pick up, mama!

This is one decision you'll have to take on your own Zooni.

Oh Lord, how silly of me.

Of course there's no point in your...

...going sightseeing when you can't see.

Okay. You can go back to the hostel after rehearsal.

Fine! At least you'll be away from that Rehan guide.

Brother, tell me something. You stand here all day.

Don't you wish you were inside on the President's chair?

Why should I think that?

In the police we regularly get promoted.

But once you're President, there's no scope of promotion at all!

You're a very jolly man!

All thanks to my grandfather.

Grandfather? My grandfather worked for the British.

All day long he would hear them say 'Jolly Good' this and 'Jolly Good' that.

When I was born he was losing his memory.

All he remembered was 'Jolly Good'.

So that's what he named me. Jolly Good.

Yes, yes have a laugh at me.

Even the officers that pass by here say...

..."Jolly Good... Singh" laugh and move on.

I think that's great.

Thanks to you, the country is run in good spirits!

"I felt God himself had blessed me."

"When all she did was to address me."

Look, I sent Rana with Balwaan and the bus.

No, I'm not coming today.

So what if I didn't tell you earlier. I'm telling you now.

Let's go. You left work without permission?

So?

My father says that if a person can't be loyal to their work...

...they can't be trusted for anything.

I've left work for you and you're giving me a speech on loyalty?

My mother says there is nothing bigger than loyalty.

If you're done with your mother and father's sermons can we go?

Why am I saying all this to you?

Why are you saying all this to me?

So that I go back to work?

Yes.

Think about it, if I go today I won't come back tomorrow.

I'll go back to the guest house, you'll go back to work.

Tomorrow you'll take the day off and then we'll go, ok?

You've heard what your parents have said. Now hear me.

If I go today I will not come back tomorrow.

You'll come. Let's go.

"I don't live the life of the selfless, nor do I grab another's wine."

"If she has love let her come and declare it..."

"...to ask her, to follow her, I decline."

God be with you.

Greetings Ms. Zooni.

Greetings Mr. Jolly.

You know what happened yesterday?

Yesterday I said good morning to 20 people...

...and they all said good evening to me instead.

How can so many people be wrong?

It was my watch that was wrong. It stopped in the morning...

...so I said 'good morning' to people all day long!

I can't see Rehan today.

I can't see him either.

I think he's like me. Completely clean at heart...

...and completely muddled in the head.

"I couldn't quench my thirst with water so I set off for the bar."

"I gave up complaining to God about you..."

"...for He is the most smitten by you, by far."

I'm with you now.

So, how are you going to show Delhi to a blind girl?

Can you see me?

No.

What's my voice like?

Like the thunder before the storm.

What do I smell like?

Like the earth after the first rain.

What do I feel like?

Like a prince in a beggar's clothing.

And just like this you will see Delhi.

Watch out! This is the Gateway of Blood.

The emperor Aurangzeb had his brother...

...Dara Shikoh beheaded, and hung his head up here. - there.

Exactly where you are standing.

And the British government killed two sons and...

...a grandson of Bahadur Shah Zafar, right there, behind you.

Please. That's enough. Let's leave from here.

This is the bloody history of Delhi.

The Mughals, the British, a lot of bloodshed had happened here.

That's why, till today, tears of blood flow from these walls.

Scared? What did you think?

I wouldn't get back at you for yesterday?

And what did you think, I'd get scared so easily?

When I have never seen any colors...

...how can the color of blood scare me?


Now you're scared.

I'm going. I'm going to Delhi, to get her back.

It's been 4 days. That's enough to understand life.

What'll be happening to her without us? Just think?

She's brought up on home food, she must be starving.

The Delhi crowds, who will look out for her?

I'm not there.

I can't take her agony any more, I'm going.

Are you going for her sake or for your own?


You were right, Rehan.

You did show me Delhi.

They say, the feelings one gets for the country...

...in front of the Eternal Soldier Flame...

...one gets for love in front of the Taj Mahal.

Feelings, love, that's all just talk.

When it comes down to basics then needs are everything.

Needs of the stomach, needs of the body.

So you believe needs are everything...

...and feelings are nothing? - Yes.

So all this time you're spending with me...

...is this also to fulfil some need?

You shouldn't tease a man like me. My needs are great.

Even one chicken is not enough.

Even one girl is not enough.

So, Mr. Rehan, how are things with you?

And how are you Zeenat?

Forgotten how I am?

Come and meet me, I'll remind you.

It's my fault actually. He's been busy with me.

That's what makes Rehan guide so special.

So, when do you plan on being busy with me again?

"I can't explain the ways of this market to you."

"He who is sold, can't ever be a buyer anew."

You'll never improve. Ever. Good evening.

You seem to know her very well.

That's me.

I told you I only believe in needs...

...not in feelings or love.

And I only believe in love.

Meeting that guide on the sly.

Forget Helen, I can't believe you lied to me!

This is just why I lied to you.

You're less of a friend and more of a Hitler.

Hitler? I was just protecting you.

Not me. You were protecting my blindness.

Zooni, how do I explain it to you? He just isn't right for you.

Perhaps, but when I'm with him I feel happy, feel alive.

And this feeling is special. Very special.

But I don't like that Guide. Not one bit.

And I don't care what you say.

I'll never let you go with him. Never.

Turn off your light.

Jolly Singh! Could you please allow my good luck to come in? Please?

Don't insist. This tough Sikh has a soft heart.

I'm sorry but rules are rules and rules are never Jolly Good.

It's ok. I know you're only doing your duty.

But still, I will be singing for him.


People say that after so many years of Independence...

...our Republic Day has lost all meaning.

That it's just another holiday.

But it's not just a holiday for me.

This day marks the birth of my country.

They say that the state of our country is like...

...that of our old monuments.

What's beautiful was only in the past.

I am blind so I don't see the faults in my country...

...but why can't those who see, see the beauty here?

What Emperor Shah Jahan had said of my home state of Kashmir...

...we believe that's true for all of India.

If there is a heaven on earth...

...it is here, it is here, it is here.


The earth here changes color at every step.

The language here has all the colors best.

The earth here changes color at every step.

The language here has all the colors best.

The climes wear green on their head.

The sky lays a blue sheet over it's bed.

Golden river, Green ocean, Every part so dressed.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

Motherland, I bow to you.

The sun with its rose-tinted neck plays around.

The yellow scarf of flowers covers the shy ground.

Color in the veil, color on the mound, bright, bright color all around.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

Bright red faces all around, smiling and glowing in fervour.

Colorful laughter, colorful happiness, relationships full of color.

Color in promises, color in memories, color, color, more color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.


The color of love here runs so deep, once its on it's there for keeps.

The color of true love so still simply glistens does not spill.

Color in charm, color in manner, all colors full of flavor.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

The earth here changes color at every step.

The language here has all the colors best.

The climes wear green on their head.

The sky lays a blue sheet over it's bed.

Golden river, Green ocean, Every part so dressed.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

My colorful, colorful country, my country full of color.

Go Zooni, he's waiting outside for you.

He said I am the cutest of all the girls.

After you of course, Zooni. Go.

Stop. You're not going anywhere.

Certainly not like this.

With your hair all over the place.

You haven't even worn your stole properly.

I can't let you go like this.

You're really...

Ok, Ok, that's enough of that.

Go now.

Let's go.

"The fire is in the sun, but it's the earth that does the burning."

"The eyes fall in love, but it's the heart..."

"...that does the suffering."

You're looking exceptionally beautiful this evening.

Really?

You're looking exactly the same to me.

You have brought me here? You?

I thought you don't believe in God.

Will you just keep quiet for a bit?

Shut your eyes now.

Rehan, my eyes are always shut.

Rest your eyelids.

They say this blessed water does miracles.

I hope that's true.

No one has ever asked for such a blessing for me.

I'm not asking for you, I'm asking for myself.

Perhaps if your eyes are open you'll keep your mouth shut!

It's so loud!

This is the real Delhi.

The quiet museums, Red Fort, that's not the real Delhi.

This is the sound of Delhi. the essence of Delhi.

I wish I was deaf as well...

Just a minute. Wait here.

Yes, it's me.

Yes, yes, I got it alright.

Rehan, you're watching me, aren't you?

What's this madness?

I just wanted to show you.

Show what? That you're such a fool?

I'll call you later.

Boys, and girls you know...

...they impress each other on their first dates. So I too.

Your life is very precious Zooni...

...don't waste it on anyone. Certainly not on me.

My mother says, to gain something you have to loose something.

Oh God!

Mother says this, father says that...

...where is Zooni in all this? What does Zooni say?

Nobody's ever asked Zooni.

I'm asking you. Tell me.

I like you.

Let's go.

Now you're scared.

Our destiny has brought us these precious moments today.

Look at me up close, imbibe me in every way.

You're still scared.

Just in case your fate has another card to play.

Think we'll never meet again, just suppose, not till this lifetime is forever closed.

I'll manage from here.

Come in to my arms, hold me close, we may never again have this night's repose.

Think we'll never meet again, just suppose, not till this lifetime is forever closed.

Come in to my arms, hold me close, we may never again have this night's repose.

Think we'll never meet again, just suppose, not till this lifetime is forever closed.

Where is Rehan the gorgeous?

What's the time, Bobo?

Ten thirty.

My watch is fine, why is he late?

It's our last day.

Maybe he's getting you a gift, so he's late.

He himself is a gift.

No news?

No.

No Fatty. Nothing yet.

Mama.

How are you my child?

We saw the performance on TV.

It was fantastic.

When everyone stood up to clap. Your father and me...

I want to speak to you about something.

What is it? Tell me.

When papa and you first met.

After he tended to you in the hospital...

...if he had suddenly disappeared. What would you have done?

I would have asked him why he was misbehaving.

And told him to stop his nonsense immediately.

Misbehaving? Who is misbehaving?

So is that what I should do?

Who is he?

Who is who?

So do you love him?

Do you love him? What are you saying? Give me the phone.

Just a minute. - Give me the phone. I'll deal with this.

So what have you decided?

Nothing. I don't think he loves me.

Just remember one thing dear...

...give your life for the one who gives you his love...

...but give your self-respect only to...

...the one who is willing to be destroyed for your love.

This is Humayun's tomb.

It was constructed for him by his wife Hamida.

Take a look at what a wife made for her husband.

And you can't even make me breakfast.

Don't worry, I'll start building your tomb right away.

Come... - I am blind and you are the one who can't see me...

"If by mistake I have made a mistake..."

"...then please consider it a mistake and forget it."

"But only forget the mistake..."

"...even by mistake don't ever forget me."

Heard that? Great!

Take them ahead.

Let's go. - But our guide?

Move it! Look here, the Qutub Minar.

No Zooni, Fatty was right.

You should love a prince, not a devil like me.

It's too late now. Now this devil is my prince.

I can't give you anything.

Remember I told you, I believe in needs, not in feelings or love.

Women are like cities for me. I spend some time in one.

I get to know it, get immersed in it and...

...and then move to another city.

This is me, and I can't change.

Look Rehan, all this stuff about princes is good in dreams and stories.

In reality I have found you.

We haven't met by chance, we've met by destiny.

If not the rest of our lives, we can spend...

...the next 12 hours together, can't we?

Perhaps that's all we have, just today, just now.

Don't come close to me, this storm will destroy you.

"May my life's breath find refuge in your heart."

"May my life's breath find refuge in your heart."

"Destroyed in your love may my life depart."

How can you love me so much? How can anyone love another so much?

I promise you this Zooni Ali Beg, the next 12 hours will be the most beautiful of your life.


The raindrops have a conspiracy.

They have a silent wish, a plea.

The raindrops have a conspiracy.

They have a silent wish, a plea.

Look, just see.

Look, just see.

Softly, slowly this gentle breeze.

Says so much, listen please.

Why the distance between you and me.

Look, just see.

Look, just see.


Never again will the winds be this shameless.

Never again will our steps falter so blameless.

Never again will the winds be this shameless.

Never again will our steps falter so blameless.

This rain is not so straight, it has a twist.

It's telling us something as it pours and mists.

Just understand it.

Just understand it.

Softly, slowly this gentle breeze.

Says so much, listen please.

Why the distance between you and me.

Look, just see.

Look, just see.


Desire, like a fire-fly, glows bright then dim.

It's such a sweet predicament that we're in.

Desire, like a fire-fly, glows bright then dim.

It's such a sweet predicament that we're in.

Don't discard the request from our lips like this.

Don't call this wish of our breathe remiss.

Just touch, Feel this.

Just touch, Feel this.

Softly, slowly this gentle breeze.

Says so much, listen please.

Why the distance between you and me.

Look, just see.

Look, just see.

Look, just see.

Look, just see.

Look, just see.


Rehan! Wake up. Wake up.

My train is at 10. If you don't wake up I'll miss it.

I spoke to Fatty and she's bringing my things to the station.

We don't have to go to the guest house. How much you sleep?

Wake up! Don't you have to go to work as well?

And don't you dare miss work today.

See I forgot, Mama had told me to get the eye test done.

And Papa has asked for a chess set.

Can we stop and get one on the way? Do we have time?

Rehan! Are you listening?

Oh, I didn't even say goodbye to Jolly Good Singh.

You please tell him for me. Here's my address...

Will you write to me?

Your wife's first visit home after marriage?

I want to say...

No, Rehan. You made no promises and I will not ask you for anything.

I always wanted love to be the most important thing in my life...

...and now, thanks to you, it is. You were wrong Rehan.

I am not destroyed in your storm I am rejuvenated.

Now your picture will remain with me always.

And now I can't leave.

Not until you step off my stole.

God be with you Rehan, be happy.


Now can I say I told you so.

No.

I won't say it. I'll never say it.

"May my life's breath find refuge in your heart."

"May my life's breath find refuge in your heart."

"Destroyed in your love may my life depart."

Fatty! If not for me at least pull the chain for Zooni.

With pleasure.

What's going on? What is the guide doing here?

The brave heart is taking the bride.

He wants to marry you?

What? Who is he? Where is he from?

What does he do? What does he look like? He wants to marry her!

They love each other.

So what did you say?

What could I say? I said he must ask my parents.

What did she tell him?

She's our daughter!

She wouldn't give any answer without our consent.

Zooni, I have complete faith in your choice.

Yes, my darling, tell him yes.

And we're coming to Delhi right away to get you married.

Come quickly mama, I miss you.

Now where are you off to?

We're going to Delhi aren't we? We'll need tickets.

As usual he runs away the moment there are tears in his eyes.

God keep you mama, God keep you.

God keep you my child, God keep you.

Our daughter has found her prince.

She has found her prince.

When did you get your eyes checked last?

I don't remember. Many years ago in Srinagar.

This is the problem.

We doctors go on about checkups and no one listens.

These days science has progressed so much.

What was impossible 5 years ago is possible today.

What do you mean?

Retinal replacement can help you.

The chances are very slim...

...I warn you, but there is still a chance.

Are you saying Zooni will be able to see?

There's a chance...

We'll take the chance doctor.

I'll check the first available date.

There won't be any problem doctor?

The operation must go well.

Don't worry our best team is on it.

I'll meet you after the operation.

Rehan! You're hugging me for the 10th time.

I'm not complaining but please don't worry. I'll be fine.

If you're so worried then why didn't we wait for mama and papa?

We could have done this after the wedding?

Let's go, it's time.

Don't forget to get mama and papa from the station.

And Jolly Good wants to come here later as well.

You're going to the President's Palace, right?

Yes.


I love you very much.

I know.

After the bomb blast in Peshawar...

...Pakistan the Independent Kashmir Front has demanded...

...that both India and Pakistan leave Kashmir.

They want an Independent Kashmir...

...or else there will be many more attacks to come.

The Chief Minister is alive...

...but as per early reports, 8 security officers have been killed.

And at least 15 others are badly wounded.

The main building has not been harmed very much...

...but the left side of it has been completely destroyed.

2 terrorists have been captured and...

...the IKF have claimed responsibility.

Their demand is that India and Pakistan leave Kashmir.

And let it be an independent country.


My Child.

Mama I can see, I can see.

Yes, my darling.

Papa I can see. You can cry in front of me now papa.

I can see you cry. But where is Rehan? He's not with you?

Didn't he get you from the station?

Papa, where are they taking us?

Why has your breathing changed papa? Why? I don't understand.

Mama, where is Rehan? Why aren't we waiting for him?

Mama why are you crying? Mama? Papa?

Why are you crying mama? Papa where are we?

Please let me go from here.

Is it necessary to do this now? Yes Ma'am.

What do we have to do?

Why can't we wait for Rehan? Papa, where are we? Papa?

I'm getting suffocated here papa.

Please let's go. Mama let's go. Please.

The bomb blast at the President's Palace.

What do we have to do with that? We don't know anything.

You're still crying mama, please don't. Please papa get me out. - Doctor?

I was going to identify him, but his state was such that I could not.

So you have to identify him, Zooni. Is this Rehan?

No! It can't be Rehan. It can't!

Please, don't make my daughter go through this. Please.

It's compulsory.

Zooni my darling, even this is life.

If only I was a roll of wool...

...wrapped around her fingers...

That fragrance on your breath is me.

How ever will you stop, not breathe?

How can you love me so much? How can anyone love another so much?

Don't come close to me, this storm will destroy you.

Think about it, if I go today I won't come back tomorrow.

At this time we are at the Bureau of Military Intelligence.

There is not much information forthcoming on the blast...

...but here is the head of the Anti-Terrorist Unit.

Mr. Susheel Rawat. Mr. Rawat. What can you tell us about the blast?

When we know more. We'll tell you more.

But something to go on, who is responsible.

These media people.

They start 24 hour channels and then get after us to fill the time.

Everything is under control.

Sir, Tyagi has been called from intelligence agency RAW.

Tyagi? Now things will be out of control.

So Tyagi, case solved yet?

So what does your psychology mumbo-jumbo say?

This is his work.

Who? Who are you talking about?

These two are telling the truth.

They haven't seen him. They were simply given instructions.

The master planner is someone else.

Do you need an invitation to tell me his name? Who is it?

This man has changed the face of the IKF.

He has taken a rag-tag group and made it a professional organization.

A group on par with the most deadly in the world.

On par with the best intelligence agencies in the world.

It's because of this man that 8 ships and...

...a large part of the Bombay port are under water.

It's because of this man that Islamabad airport's...

...new wing was destroyed even before it could be completed.

He has changed the face of terrorism in India and Pakistan.

Those blood shot eyes and...

...fanatical terrorists are a thing of the past.

This man is a thinker. A planner. No one knows his name.

No one knows his past, or where he comes from.

He can be anyone.

The man sitting next to you on the train...

...or a bank teller, or even the cigarette seller outside.

He is intelligent and he's dangerous, and he can be anyone.

We have to find him.

For if we don't, he can take terrorism to a level beyond...

...our imagination because our imagination is be nothing like his.


I'm sorry Grandfather, the mission was not entirely successful.

I had set everything.

Those fools just didn't follow instructions.

Not everyone can be like my grandson. A perfect soldier.

But even he slipped this once. That too for some woman.

It's very unusual that you were carried away like this.

And the woman what about her?

She is with God.

Now listen to me.

You don't have to worry about this soldier sir.

My concentration was, is...

...and will always remain on our independence.

I am a soldier and nothing else.

That's all I wanted to hear my son.

Now I'll meet you after the Bangkok operation. May God keep you.

You had taken me to my goal, Zooni.

I should never have taken you off that train. But I became weak...

...and I fell in love with you.

I hope you can forgive me.

I should never have brought you into my life. Never.

God be with you, Zooni.


You are the Defence Secretary.

Do something. Get that Tyagi off my back!

Last year the AI-Qaeda's attempt on Delhi airport...

...was foiled by Tyagi.

She got lucky once.

And now she thinks she's a big shot intelligence officer.

I can't do anything now.

The Defence Minister himself has asked her to be on this case.

Sir, it's nothing less than the Armageddon.

The press shouldn't even get a whiff of this.

This IKF has made our life hell.

First the President Palace bombing...

...then Karachi Oil refinery and last year it was the...

...plane hijacking. And now we hear they've stolen parts from us, Pakistan and Russia and are ready with a nuclear missile!

Sir, this is their way of forcing India out of Kashmir.

When Kashmir's ruler, Hari Singh, decided to join India...

...in 1947, then why this talk of independence now?

But the Kashmiri's had also been promised a vote, a referendum to decide whether they wanted to stay...

...a part of India, join Pakistan or then be independent.

All these years later they are still to get that referendum.

What referendum are you talking about?

When half of Kashmir is occupied by Pakistan, how is it possible?

A referendum needs to include all of Kashmir, why should it include only half?

This is not an India-Pakistan issue any more.

IKF wants both India and Pakistan to leave Kashmir.

They want a separate country. An independent Kashmir.

Please, I know the history of India and Pakistan.

Tell me about this bomb.

How powerful is this bomb, Mrs. Tyagi? And what are the dangers?

In the last few years over 15,000 people have been killed in Mumbai, Oklahoma City, New York, Bali, Madrid and London.

And losses have run into millions.

But if they use this bomb...

...5 million people can die. An entire city can be destroyed.

That city can also be our capital, New Delhi.

We must stop this bomb. Whatever it takes.

But Sir, this bomb is useless for them.

What do you mean?

The missile needs a special, Indian made trigger.

If they don't have that, they can't use the bomb.

Only until they get the trigger. Only until then.

Sir, there's nothing to worry about. Outside of Delhi, we have 6 triggers at various military bases around the country.

In Rajasthan, Kutch, Darjeeling, Amritsar, Leh and Kashmir. They are safe there.

I want all the triggers brought to Delhi.

In the next 12 hours they will all be here, Sir.

Get me the Defence Minister of Pakistan, I want to share this information with him.

We can be sure. Just as we are taking steps to secure the triggers, IKF's mastermind will be taking steps to steal them.


Yes, sir. I understand, sir.

My unit has a 100% success rate on missions, Sir.

And I will bring this trigger to you myself.

Be alert. IKF will be after you at every step.

If the weather holds up, the trigger will be...

...with you in 3 hours, Sir. Glory to India!

This is the day every soldier lives for.

For a chance to serve his country.

The last time you saved me from the IKF.

Today we both must save the country from the IKF.

This soldier is ready to take lives or to give his own life.

Anything for his motherland, Sir.

Good news. The trigger will be with us soon. God keep Rehan!

God is great!

Mummy is fine. How are you?

Mummy will save the country.

I know you wanted custard. But Grandma has made rice...

...pudding with so much love, so please eat it.

What have you brought? Rice pudding or custard?

We've checked the list of officers coming from Kashmir.

How can it not be ok? I have hand-picked these officers.

They are the army's very best elite forces.

Ok, so that's where he is.

Who?

An ace officer from the Jat Regiment, Sir. Captain Ranjeev.

His wife reported he hadn't called her for a couple of months.

She wanted to know if he was on some secret mission.

That's wives for you. Am sure she was after him with some pudding or such.

Poor man must have needed a break from...

...all that so he didn't call. It's understandable.

He didn't call his wife for two months? Just find out, was his last mission to do with the IKF?

Yes Ma'am. Major Suraj's regiment was surrounded by the IKF.

At the last moment Captain Ranjeev's regiment got there and saved them.

Everyone from Captain Ranjeev's regiment was killed. Only he survived.

That's him! We have to stop him!

Sounds like the base is trying to contact us. The signal is too weak.

It's amazing isn't it? Such a small thing can take so many lives.

Our lives too, in it's defence. So?

I'm not afraid of dying, Sir.

But it's better to kill for your country than be killed.

You want to kill people? Make them eat your wife's cooking!


You are dying the death of a brave soldier.

He who dies on the battlefield goes to heaven. God keep you.


Grandfather. I am not empty handed.

Praise be to God! You don't have just a trigger there with you.

It is our decades long dream. We have sacrificed so much for.

You must get that trigger to us now at any cost. Kill, or be killed.

Yes, grandfather. I will meet you in 3 hours...

...at Shikara 1 pick up point. Goodbye.

I was right. That was no accident. He was in the helicopter.

Jam all the phone lines in the area...

...mobiles, satellite, internet, everything.

I want a communications blackout.

We can't jam radio signals, we have military operations in that area.

If you can't jam them, you can at least monitor them, can't you?

Search the entire area.

How far is the road unit?


No! He's still alive. I don't care how many bodies you saw.

I know Rehan will reach the pick up point.

I have not given him permission to die. He cannot die.


Quickly, call Grandpa. Go. Fast. Papa!

Hand me the scissors please.

Who is this, mom?

Rehan, I don't know. Go, please sit over there.

Is he also dead like Grandma?

Quiet! Little monkey.

His pulse is quite weak. Try the phone. Is it working now?

No papa. It's still dead.

We've done the best we could. I'm no doctor.

What can we do?

You can't go and get a doctor in this weather.

Not 50 kilometers in this storm. No way.

Mom! Please leave Rehan.

Nothing darling. Nothing.

Now it's up to you young man.

We can only pray you have some reason to live.

It can be two days? It can be two weeks?

How can you not know when the storm will pass?

I want an update every hour, you hear?

Can't you do anything right?

Till I don't see a body I can't believe he's dead.

Don't do that Rehan. What are you up to?

I can't hear his heartbeat. There is no heartbeat.

Rehan wants to hear his heartbeat, like he hears Grandpa's.

The heart is not here, it's there.


Forgive me Zooni. I have no choice.


Do you know the cricketer Rahul Dravid?

Rahul Dravid is Rehan's father.

Because Rehan's father is dead you see, so mom said Rehan could choose any father. So Rehan chose Rahul Dravid.

Are you Mr. Dependiddle like Rahul Dravid?

Can you also be completely trusted like Rahul Dravid?

That outhouse of yours is falling apart.

Look, look the dead man is awake.

Don't talk like that.

When the weather is better we'll get it fixed. It's freezing.

Before you thank me. Come and eat something.


Don't drink so much you'll become a hittototomas.

Not hittototomas, kid. Hippopotomas. And where did you learn this word?

From Colonel uncle. Hitto. Hittototomas.

Would you like something? I'm sorry I didn't get your name.

I didn't know there were military operations here.

There are such few of us here. What will the militants do here?

They can hide.

The dead man stinks so Rehan thought...

Strange, when Zooni couldn't see she didn't bang into a thing.

And now that she can see, she's constantly walking into things.

Thank you for saving me.

You were lucky, so you survived. What did I do?

Is it just the 3 of you here?

Zooni's mother died a couple of years ago.

And left me all alone.

And before that her husband died in a bomb blast.

I don't know why, but Zooni blames herself for his death.

When will this storm end? I must leave from here.

It's hard to say. It might stop tomorrow or maybe a week.

Don't think of leaving in this weather though.

Certainly not in your state. Rest a while. You are our guest.


Dispenser of India's destiny.

You keep teaching me things. Tell Rehan a story.

Dispenser of India's destiny.

You're not a good mother. You never tell Rehan stories.

I don't know any stories.

Not me. You. You're a bad boy. Go. I'm not talking to you.

Rehan loves you more than you love Rehan.

But mom Rehan already knows the national anthem.

Let's hear it.

Thou art the ruler of the minds of all the people... Dravid, Orissa and Bengal. Dravid, Orissa and Bengal.

You and your Dravid fixation.

Dravid, Orissa and Bengal.

Do you know the national anthem?

No.

See even the dead man doesn't know the national anthem.

Please tell mom, not to teach Rehan. The phone's dead. Tell her not to teach Rehan.

What's this?

Which soldier doesn't know the national anthem?

Why are you lying to the child?

I am not here to teach him the national anthem, and I'm not here to play with him. I don't care if I lied to him. l'm a soldier on a mission, not his father!

Come here immediately!


If you don't eat vegetables how will you slay the dragon?

Captain Ranjeev, come and join us. Tell us about your life.

I've heard soldiers have fascinating stories to tell.

I'm not hungry thank you. I'll just go to bed.

Your bed has been made upstairs. The room on the left.

Dead man made mom cry.

Eat your food.

What's this?

Mom has sent it for you. So you'll get better faster...

...so you can leave faster.

But what is it?

Poison.

Milk with turmeric.

And don't try and throw it in the WO, it stinks it up and mom finds out.

Don't throw it out either, the snow gets yellow.

And in the wash basin the color stains it, you'll get caught.

And yes! If you find some other way.

Please tell Rehan. Next time Rehan will do the same.

It really is poison.

"Come closer now, I will not come back again and again"

"Put your arms around me, so I can cry again and again"

If only I was a roll of wool wrapped around her fingers...

"Think we will never meet again, just suppose, not till this lifetime is forever closed"

"Come into my arms, hold me close, we may never again have the night's repose."

"Think we'll never meet again, just suppose, not till this lifetime is forever closed."


Thank you.


Yesterday I was very rude.

Actually, I'm not very good with children.

Am not very good with words either. But I am good with a hammer.

Not everything can be done alone.

Rehan doesn't have a father...

...so he sometimes... he won't trouble you again.

He's a good kid.

So have you forgiven me then?

Thing is, I spend so much time alone...

...that I don't know how to behave in company any more.

Like this one time I went to my friend Mihir Wohra's house for a party.

I asked his wife how she likes being wife number 2.

Turns out she was wife number 1 and had no idea there was a wife number 2.

After this I decided I would stick to safe topics.

So I asked my Colonel how his son was doing at school?

Now that's safe? Right?

Wrong. Just that day his son had been thrown...

...out of school for biting his teacher's bum.

And not just that. He was sent back to apologise the...

...following day and he ended up biting her other bum.

Close your eyes.


Rehan doesn't want to wash his hair. Rehan will not wash his hair.

You have to wash your hair or you'll get such big, big insects in it.

Let them come Rehan will take the insects for a walk every day.

May I help?

Give it a try.

I'm not talking to you I'm talking to him.

He's such a sweet kid. Why are you bothering him.

But he has to wash his hair.

He'll wash it when he feels like it.

Rehan! Look up.

You were right. Everything can't be done alone.

Dead man is funny.

Don't call him dead man, son.

Rehan likes the dead man.

Can I help you?

I'm fine. Thanks.

Everything can't be done alone.

You told us some good stories today.

Why have you stopped telling stories?

Your father talks a lot after a couple of drinks.

Earlier I couldn't see. Now I've seen too much to believe in stories.

Your family must be worried. You've been missing for a few days.

I have no family, I never met my parents. They died when I was 3.

I'm sorry you're so lonely.

Not at all. Why do you say that?

Your smile doesn't reach your eyes.

A soldier's life is like that.

There must be someone else hidden behind that soldier.

Perhaps. But, I don't think I really understand him.

Sometimes to understand yourself, you need to see yourself from someone else's eyes.

I could never get that close to anyone.

Why? You couldn't trust anyone?

I don't trust myself.

And then everytime, a new mission, a new city.

I couldn't be in any one place for too long.

Sometimes you seem very familiar.

Rehan will not call him dead man any more.

You're my good son.

Can Rehan call dead man, papa? Please?

Close your eyes.

So tell me Captain Ranjeev, have you ever loved...

...a woman so deeply that her smile made you breathless?

I...

I loved my Nafisa like that. She was...

...heavenly!

Papa, you've started again. I've told you...

...not to drink in front of mama's photograph.

"Let me sit and drink on the Mosque ground..."

"...or show me a place where God is not found".

Fantastic! Superb!

"In this life without you I have no..."

"...complaint."

"No complaint, I have no complaint."

Enough papa, enough.

What are you doing? We're having such a nice time.

Let's go, papa.

Let me finish this drink. "In this life without you I have no complaint."

"But this life without you is no life anyway."

"I wish I could bury my head in your veil and cry, just cry."

"Are you sure your eyes themselves don't lack in tears, are dry, just dry?"

The letter 'H'

"How do you do, dear one? How do you think, dear one?"

"I'm just happy oh ho ho."

"So, you've slipped then aa ha ha."

"What if I let my heart live in your eyes?"

"What if I close my eyes, and punish your heart?"

"What can I say in praise of the one who made you?"

"These nights, this clime, this river side, this playful breeze"

"Time has given us such beautiful pain."

"I am not me anymore and you are not the same."

"Our hearts tremble now as they meet."

"Like they were never apart for even a beat."

"But you got lost and so did I."

"After our travel together..."


Now you're scared.

Who are you? How do you know all this?

You can't know. What's happening to me?

I hear him in your voice, your breath, it's all the same.

It's me. Rehan.

Your Rehan.

What I did to you. I've never forgiven myself for it.

I promised myself I'd stay away from you.

I didn't want to cause you more pain.

Perhaps it was God's justice that I had to die at your doorstep.

But you kept me alive. And now I want to live.

I want to live for you, for our son.

Rehan... you are Rehan?

My real name is Rehan Qadri.

Kashmiri?

Yes.

Go on.

When I met Zooni I was on a mission.

And that's why you fell in love with my daughter?

Promised her marriage? Was that all a part of your mission?

That was my weakness. I was not free to love.

I am deeply sorry and ashamed about my selfish love.

And you've come back to repeat that mistake?

My mission is not complete yet. After this storm, it will be.

Then I will stay with Zooni for the rest of my life.

Mission! Mission! What is this great mission...

Because of which you're playing with all our lives?

I can't say.

What?

I know my silence can go against me.

But I do not want to lie and I cannot tell you the truth.

All I can say in my defence is that my love is true.

I have given you a lot of pain, still I am asking you to fill my wounds.

I know I'm not worthy of your forgiveness...

...but I stand before you with the hope that you will forgive me.

I would not have left my Nafisa for anything.

God came in the way otherwise I would've still been with her.

There is no reason to believe him, but there is also no reason not to.

It was your decision then Zooni and it's your decision now.


7 years! 7 years I have lived with the guilt that I sent you to your death.

Every day I curse my self for sending you there.

Do you know what it's like to live with that?

Look at this!

When you were off being a great soldier...

...on your missions this is what I was doing.

I was taking parts of all these faces, trying to make one face. Your face.

So I could have something to cry in front of, something to show my son.

To tell him this is your father.

And now you say all those tears, all that pain was for nothing? No!

Why should I open myself to pain again Rehan? Why should I take you back?

Give me one good reason why I shouldn't believe you are still dead?

Give me one good reason.

I don't have a single good reason. They are all bad. Each and every one.


I was taking parts of all these faces, trying to make one face.


Why are you going?

Because I can't play cricket like Rahul Dravid.

Don't worry. Rehan will teach you.

I am not dependiddle either. I can't be trusted.

No you are dependable for Rehan. See Rehan has learned how to say dependable.

Rehan will never trouble you again.

He won't call you dead man. He will have a bath himself.

He will not give you milk and turmeric, but please don't go.

Rehan loves you more than you love Rehan.


Sit properly!

Eat!

Why are you venting your anger on him?

The one who deserves it has left without saying a word.

He must be in his room. Go tell him breakfast is ready.

I'm not going to stand around in the kitchen all day for him.

He's gone. He said goodbye to Rehan. Not to you.

No, he can't go. He can't go.


How dare you leave me again. How dare you?

Your life is mine now, do you hear? You can never leave me and go. Never!


Papa!

When I have your hands in mine.

I have with me the heavens divine.

When I have your hands in mine.

I have with me the heavens divine.

When you're close, this world is naught.

Destroyed in your love, a triumph sought.

When I have your hands in mine.

I have with me the heavens divine.

When you're close this world is naught.

Destroyed in your love, a triumph sought.

When I have your hands in mine.

I have with me the heavens divine.


May my life's-breath find refuge in your heart.

Destroyed in your love may my life depart.

As close as fragrances are to breath.

As close as songs are to lips.

As close as sleepless nights to memories.

As close as arms are to embraces.

As close, as close as dreams to eyes.

Be that close to me, oh love of mine.

When you're close this world is naught.

Destroyed in your love, a triumph sought.

When I have your hands in mine.

I have with me the heavens divine.


Let my eyes swell with tears, let me cry today.

Take me in your arms, get drenched today.

The sea of pain trapped in my heart will explode.

I have so much pain your veil will be drenched.

As close as secrets are to heartbeats.

As close as raindrops are to clouds.

As close as the moon is to night.

As close as kohl is to eyes.

As close, as close as waves to the ocean.

Be that close to me, oh love of mine.

When you're close this world is naught.

Destroyed in your love, a triumph sought.

When I have your hands in mine.

I have with me the heavens divine.

My breath was incomplete, heartbeat incomplete, incomplete was I.

But now the moon is full, complete in the sky, and now with you complete am I...


Give us some good news Aakash. Can we go any further?

Sorry ma'am, we'll have to wait another 2 or 3 days.

But we have to do something Aakash. We can't just stand around.

No. Not the press. We can't talk to the media about the bomb yet.

The order's come directly from Delhi.

We can't talk about the bomb but we can talk about him.

Aakash! Inform the press. Newspaper, Radio, TV.

The search is on for a terrorist hiding in the outskirts of Srinagar.

This terrorist is badly wounded and is wearing an army uniform.

He is also carrying an electronic part.

If you have any information on this man please...

...contact your nearest police station immediately.

Come on Rehan, drink your milk.

Rehan loves you more than you love Rehan.

No, I love Rehan much more than that and he has to drink this milk.

And what about this Rehan?

At this time?

Colonel? At this time? What's the matter?

I have risked life and come here for a very important reason.

I've run out of rum!

The games destiny plays with us. And if one is in the army their...

...destiny is not in their hands anyway. Cheers!

Rehan, if you like you can come to my house and radio your unit.

You have a radio transmitter?

Meet the man who lives in the middle of nowhere...

...and keeps a radio to keep in touch with people.

Always wonder why he lives out here.

It's late today. It'll be dark by the time you return.

It's dark already.

Ok, so it's night already. Come tomorrow. The weather...

...should be clearer as well. Come and radio your unit then.

There's no need for that.

Why not?

He has just returned after 7 years. I don't want...

...him to disappear for another 7.

You are trying to guard a soldier is it? Rehan, do you want me to radio them?

No, I'll have to do it myself.

Of course, of course.

Let him give his status report then you...

...can keep him imprisoned here forever, right Rehan?

Fine, now no more discussion. What do they say in Punjabi?

Let's have a whopper of a drink.


Where's your father? He was to take me to colonels' house.

Do you really have to go?

Just this last bit of work.

Papa takes a while to get ready. He'll be down soon. Papa!

Once upon a time there was a prince, and a princess who was blind.

Mom, you are telling a story?

One day the princess met an ordinary man who...

...followed different monuments in different cities.

But the princess saw the prince hidden in that ordinary man.

What was the prince's name?

Rehan.

The prince saved the princess from a huge, scary dragon.

The dragon had a big, red face. Every time he opened his mouth...

...gigantic balls of fire would come out of it.

What was the dragon's name?

Grandpa!

Come on Rehan, let's go to the Colonel's and radio your unit.

The search is on for a terrorist hiding in the outskirts of Srinagar.

This terrorist is wearing an army uniform.

He is also carrying an electronic part.

Grandpa, Rehan loves you very much.

I will have to go for a couple of days to hand in my resignation.

Whether or not you're on this mission, the IKF will definitely loose.

Terrorists can never win.

That's the thing. These people are not terrorists. They are fighting for their independence.

And who will run this country of theirs? The IKF?

No. Whoever the people of Kashmir elect. In fair elections.

It seems you're not against the IKF, you're for them.


You are a traitor. You may be my daughter's husband, but I'll gladly kill you.

I was doubtful when I saw the news on the TV, but by then it was too late.

I had my doubts. But today I was certain...

...when I found this trigger in your pocket.

You can't do anything now. I am going to radio the...

...military and hand you over. Colonel! Colonel!

Please sir, give me that trigger. All this will be over in a couple of days.

Then I can stay with Zooni and Rehan forever.

I'd rather they be dead. I'll never give you this. Never.

Don't you dare, Rehan!

No!!

No!!


My son. Rehan! God be praised a million times.

You're alive! Do you have what I want?

Yes, I have it with me.

What's the matter?

I'm tired that's all. I just want all this to end.

Look here...

I know what I have to do. Come here and take what it is you want.

The coordinates here are loc rep 34,74...

...mount 2730, 500 house.

That was him. Thank God he hasn't reached his people yet.

There is very heavy fog right now. We'll try and be...

...there tomorrow morning. God be with you.

Sorry ma'am he gave his location in code. We'll need some time to break it.

Give Ranade the code to break.

Keep the ground search going.

And continue monitoring the frequency he called from.

We only have till tomorrow morning. Contact the base camp.

Are they ready with the sketch of the imposter of Captain Ranjeev?


Papa!!

Papa! Someone help us please!

Mom, what's happened?

Papa! Papa!

Mom! What happened?

Nothing, go watch some TV.

Rehan. Papa...

I've just left him at Colonel uncle's. They're both drinking rum.

He said he'll stay there tonight.

The search is on for a terrorist hiding in the outskirts of Srinagar.

This terrorist is badly wounded and is wearing an army uniform.

He went missing 8 days ago.

He has an electronic part with him.

This is a sketch of him provided by the army.

If you see this man anywhere, please don't try and catch him yourself.

He is armed and dangerous.

Please contact your nearest police...

...station immediately. Or call this number.


Hello! Hello! Can someone hear me?

Ma'am someone is sending an SOS from the same frequency.

Hello. Hello. Yes we read you.

Hello, can someone hear me?

Hello, yes, we can hear you.

I am Malini Tyagi from the anti terrorist special forces. Who is this?

I am Zooni Ali Beg. My husband. I thought he was dead.

But he came back 9 days ago. I think he's the one you are looking for.

He may have killed my father and my uncle. Or not.

I don't know. Just please help us. I am alone. It's just me and my son.

Zooni, Zooni don't panic. And listen to me carefully.

Does your husband have some sort of an electronic part?

Yes, I saw it on TV. It's with me.

It's him. Your husband is the one we are looking for. He is the terrorist.

Listen to me carefully Zooni. I am going to tell you the most...

...important thing you will ever hear. If he leaves with that trigger, if he joins his comrades they will...

...use a nuclear bomb over our country.

Millions of Indians will die.

One of them can be my daughter. Another can be your son.

There will be complete destruction...

...and the only one who can stop it Zooni, is you!

But, he is my husband.

Tell me you will help us Zooni.

Tell me you will stop him. Whatever it takes.

Yes.

We have your location now Zooni.

We know where you are, we'll be there tomorrow morning.

Ok.


Who are you running away from...? From me? From your Rehan?

I have only one Rehan. My son.

Papa? What happened?

Nothing son. Everything is fine.

What's the point? You'll kill him as well.

I'd rather die first.

You killed Papa quite easily.

I didn't kill him. It was an accident.

And Colonel Uncle?

Give me the trigger Zooni.

No.

Give me that trigger!

What will you do? Kill me as well? Kill me.

I've already died once because of you, why not once again.

Zooni, despite all my lies.

Despite all the pain I have given you.

Do you believe that I love you?

Then for the sake of that love.

You have to do what I say. If you don't give me that trigger...

...then they will torture and kill Rehan right in front of us.

Then they'll kill you in front of me.

Then if they have any mercy, then they will kill me too.

And the person to do all this will be no stranger.

My own grandfather will destroy his family with his own hands.

I don't care about myself Zooni, but I am not willing to sacrifice Rehan or you.

This is the only way we'll be able to live our lives in peace again.

And what about the lives of those millions that will die from the bomb?

No one will use the bomb. It's just a threat. The governments...

...of India and Pakistan will have no other choice, but to give in.

After all your lies, how can I believe you now?

Grandfather.

Or the Indian army whom I called.

No. Grandfather.

You can't leave.

Take care of Rehan and yourself. I'll be back tomorrow.


Rehan! Please for our son's sake. Stop!


Why Rehan? Why?

Rehan loves you more than you love Rehan.

Don't say that. Please don't.

Now I'm not scared.


When I have your hands in mine.

I have with me heavens divine.

When I have your hands in mine.

I have with me heavens divine.

When you're close this world is naught.

Destroyed in your love, a triumph sought.

It's easy to choose between right and wrong.

But to choose the greater of two goods...

...or the lesser of two evils. Those are the choices of our life.

Was Rehans father a bad man?

Sometimes, one might be right, but other might take him to be bad.

Your father did what he felt right.

Rehan loves you very much.

And Zooni loves Rehan very much.
