Baharen Phir Bhi Aayengi

Uploaded by UltraMovieParlour on 22.02.2012

Read the back-page in Jagriti? - Yes, and I'm wondering. . .
how the news of the mines got to the presses despite Mr Das being in place
Got to thrash it out at the board meeting
Hello, my chest is a bit of an inconvenience for your umbrella
Where's your friend? - My friend? Jiten. . . ?
Where is he? - Returned to Calcutta yesterday
Came directly to the office, after I left for the day
Since then, no news
Umbrella ! On my foot
Please hold it aloft?
Send Jiten to me as soon as he comes to office. Understand?
Whatever you say. Bye
Profile, first class!
Front, super class! - What. . . ?
My compliments. I'm Mr Chunilal, chief photographer. You are. . . ?
Ruby! Pink diamond !
What an apt name!
Pink lips, pink cheeks, pink all over
Since when have you been here?
Day before yesterday. - I've been here for years
If you have any problems here, just tell me
I got a link right upto the managing director
Right upto the managing director? - I meet her every evening for tea
The managing director
This is no time for tea
Wake up, it's morning
The news editor has summoned you. - Give me some time
On the double. This morning, he's missing you dearly
What have you been upto? - You'll get to know in a while
In a while? Why, what's to happen? - War. Between truth and falsehood
War. . . ? No, not today, I'm in the mood for romance. Yes dear?
This dear is cut off for now!
Are you the news editor? - Yes
Mr Das, Seth Gulabchand says that the story on his mines is incorrect
Absolutely incorrect, sir! I didn't give permission to publish it
That Jiten Gupta did it. - Who is this Jiten Gupta?
One of our reporters. - It's his news
He forged my signature and sent it to the presses
Forgery. . . ?
The managing director ought to take note of the disciplinary aspect
Mr Das, you may leave. - Fine
Madam, did we invest millions in your newspaper to bring ourselves to harm?
We ought to profit. Only profit
Is this a request or a threat?
Not to misunderstand
A request
From this newspaper, our businesses ought to gain. Not lose
Your involvement with the newspaper is only in the share of profits
Deciding the policy of the newspaper, running it, is my responsibility
And I am fully aware of my responsibilities
Got to take a look at the book before sundown
Drinking in office? - The office being the problem. . .
here's right where I take care of it. - I'll do it for you
What are you doing? ! You've spilled half! Let me have the rest
No, I'm throwing it all away. - Go on ! I've got money
That was a quarter of a bottle. I'll buy myself a whole bottle
Let's see how you do that. - Mr Gupta. . .
What is it? - Madam wants to see Mr Gupta
Calling you ! For the first time! You're surely getting a promotion
Give my money back! - You aren't getting it back
You think I can't buy on credit? At month's end, I drink on credit
Are you Jiten Gupta? - Yes
The news about the mines is yours? - Yes
Without permission of the news editor? - Yes
Your job is getting the news. Publishing is the news editor's job
I know, but. . . - Why are you indiscipline?
For the sake of the ideals of this newspaper
Isn't this our motto? ''Let the Truth prevail''
My news is correct. The mines are in a precarious condition
They might collapse at any time. Several miners might be killed
You shall state your case without getting carried away. Talk business
I'm not getting carried away. Tell me, what is more precious?
The lives of the miners? Or office discipline?
I wish you saw for yourself the poor miners deep underground
Sans fresh air and the heat could melt your brains
The work conditions are stifling
You know why? If they don't work their children will starve
Hapless as they are, they mustn't be oppressed in this manner
What oppression? - I have the evidence
The mine-owners are playing with their lives. Just look at my photographs
Just look at the state. Ceilings, about to cave in, flooding waters
Do take a look, madam
Why didn't you show this to the news editor?
I did, but he refused to publish it. I hear he's their man
Whose man? - The mine owners'
Enough !
Mr Das has been working with us for eight years. Not a word against him
As you please. One last thing
I have no more time. - The working of those mines must stop
You may leave. - It's a matter of lives
Stop arguing. - Give me a hearing
I told you. You may leave. I wish to hear no more
Why won't you? You must. You can, if you wish. . .
use the newspaper to save lives. Else, today or tomorrow. . .
the mines will cave in, crushing miners to death
Women will be widowed, children will be orphaned
And you will be responsible
I hear this paper fought for the people, for the truth. . .
in you father's times. The daughter, I see. . .
has sold out to the capitalists
This insolence has cost you your job. - Not my life, I hope
As long as I preserve my courage, employers, there will be many
Maybe you never heard the saying about the Eternal Spring
The arrival of The Spring will never cease
Who else is around? - I'm laughing it out all alone
Just read a lovely joke
I failed?
Complete failure
But the results are expected tomorrow. How come you've found out today?
A friend told me. - Your friend is talking rot
He works at the university. - At the university?
Then. . .
What happened, Baby? - The telephone
And. . . - Conversation
And. . . ? - Don't you see? I'm in tears!
And why are you in tears? - Tomorrow, Didi will scream at me
What for? I've never heard her screaming at you
That's why I'm so sacred ! No! I can't show her my face
Not anymore
Would it cost you your tongue to apologise?
Hear that, brother?
Take a good look at him. The one and only, in all of India
As much fun as an ass has in summer. . .
this man enjoys going broke
Sure. - What do you mean? He just got fired
And look at him enjoying himself
Wonderful ! Just look at the display of sheer nonchalance
Come off it! I'm talking to you. - Yes, go on
Why didn't you apologise to her? - Why should I?
Indeed ! Your father left you a legacy! So you kick the job! Not your ego
Not ego. Ideals. - Ideals! Indeed !
I'm talking to you. Just look at him, brother
The world is making money. And he's after ideals!
And why not? Money isn't as exciting as the ideal, is it?
Move over
Listen, your ideals won't work, not in 1 96 2. Not listening, are you?
You'll die starving, soon. Let's see who gives you a job
Lots Chuni Lal, lots
''Let the gardener be gone''
''But in Eden it always blossoms''
''The Spring always returns''
''Spring will always return''
''Don't let yourself tire, don't let yourself be stifled''
''Go on, singing your tune''
''Among thorns, make flowers blossom. . . ''
''use them to fill your emptiness''
''Let the wind fan the flames''
''Let there be venom in the air''
''Yet The Spring always returns''
''Spring will always return''
''Let the gardener be gone''
''But in Eden it always blossoms''
''What is light, what is darkness?''
''I belong to none''
''Your dreams, your desires, are all you have''
''Let the world treat you mercilessly''
''Let not the climes suit you''
''Yet, The Spring always returns''
''Spring will always return''
''Let the gardener be gone''
''But in Eden it always blossoms''
What are you upto?
Oh how cruel a world this is! - How cruelly has your world dealt you?
I can't even jump when I want to die! - Why do you wish to die?
How are you concerned? Intruding upon someone's privacy is uncivilised
Forgive me this error. Go on, jump. Go ahead
It's going to take another three quarters of an hour
In the wait for an auspicious moment?
Worked on it for 4 5 minutes. . .
to get into the mood for the plunge. In the nick of time, you transpire!
Ruined all my efforts!
Then I have committed a grave crime!
Get out of this madness. Go home. - I'm not returning
Why is the train stopping here?
Listen. . .
Sprain? - All because of you
Had you not meddled, I wouldn't have had to make this getaway
Or I would've been dead by now. - Sorry for spoiling the fun
Let me drop you home. - I'm not going home
Then I shall, perforce. - My foot hurts! Brute!
If you must do it like a gentleman. Pick me up
Don't you watch films? Are girls picked up like this?
Yes, this is the way every burden is carried
Is Babli asleep? - She locked herself in all evening
Is she all right? - Yes, you want me to wake her up?
No, let her sleep
You won't give me your name and address? - No, no and no!
Let's see, for how long. - Till eternity
Until then I am pursuing you
Look. . .
All you need is the reins
Step down. - I won't
You aren't on mule-back. It's my back. Get off
Get off, I say
This man brought me here forcibly! - I'm taking her home
I won't, won't and I won't!
Why are you limping? - He gave me the limp
Your woman she won't go home with you. So you beat her up? Aren't you ashamed?
Why not? If women won't stay at home, will men not raise their hands?
If men raise their hands, will women stay at home?
You're right. Please save me. From him. - Don't you worry, sister
He won't even point a finger at you. Come inside
You will keep watching !
God save us from these women. Be nice to them. . .
and they want to perch on your head. - In my case, it has been the back
Who knows what is in store!
I see. Tit for tat, eh? He vanishes even without waking me up
When is the next train back? - Tomorrow
Stood me up for a whole night. Scoundrel ! I won't spare him
This fellow won't get up so easily
Can I find anything here?
Ticket, ticket! - I got a pass. You got any problems?
Show me your pass. - Hold this
Son of a gun ! - What did you say?
Not you brother, not you. - You just said it
I was describing someone else. But if that describes you. . .
well, you're a son of a gun ! - Hold your tongue, I say!
Pipe down ! You're talking to a press photographer, do you know?
Irrespective, the fine is 2. 50. - Pipe down, I said
I'll pay you double. Plus a tip. But not today, tomorrow
You want to bribe me? Constable!
The constable takes a cut?
Why not call in the station master too?
The three of you can freak out! - No!
Hurts less. . . ? - Vanished
What a way to treat you. He must be cruel
Very cruel
Any children? - Ask him
Him. . . ? Why not you? - How would I know how many he has?
Goodness! Is he wayward?
Outrageous. - Is that so?
Then he'll mend his ways before he leaves
Are you human? Or a demon?
You have a woman at home. Yet you are wayward?
What rot are you saying? - Shut up!
Poor thing has such bad luck to be tied to him! I ask her, how many kids?
She says, ask my husband. Such a demon ! Always running after girls
She's lying ! I've got nothing to do with her
Then why were you backpacking her? You think you can fool me? Move
What are you doing? - You stay back
You'll mend your ways before you leave
In you go. Apologise to your woman. - But she isn't. . .
She has suffered enough. Apologise to her
Go inside Bolt the door
Why did you shut the door? - I'm being forced. . .
to spend the night here. - Here? With me?
Why did you tell her we're man and woman?
Is that a lie? A man is one who grows a beard. The rest are women
Brilliant! In local parlance, man-woman means man and wife
Once more
Get lost
You're such a savage! You ought to take a lesson from this couple
No sooner than her man woos her, she's willing
They love each other so much
Are you begging of your wife now? Weren't you so brash a while ago?
Fresh news! Newspaper
Money - Money. . . ? Keep it
Address. . . Siakhala
Name. . . Chuni Lal
Where's Babli? - Still asleep
Hasn't come out of her room yet. - What a silly girl
This is sleeping a bit too long
Is she all right?
Coming, Didi ( Didi = sister)
Hello. - Hello
Hi Didi ! Where's Bubbles?
She has passed. In second division
But where is she? - Inside. Should be coming out
Yesterday, I made such a fool of Bubbles!
Were you saying something, Mr Verma? - Yes, as I was saying. . .
now that Babli has passed. . .
makes it twice as happy a day
Bubbles isn't out yet! Why don't you call her out?
Sushma ! You tell your uncle to give me my wallet
Ma. . . uncles Jitu and Chuni are at it again
Take that
Fighting again, Chuni? - For the last time
Not a chance of another quarrel ! Never again will I see his face!
Never again will I talk to him! - Don't worry, Didi
In 5 minutes, he'll start talking. - Not in 5 lifetimes!
Didi, you tell him not to talk to me. Our friendship is over
But what happened? - What not?
He deserted me on the train, while I was asleep
Curse you ! You'll never land a job!
All night, I was locked away in the lock-up
This morning I pawned my camera to pay the fine! He'd rather I was in jail !
* * *Now I know why you said I'd talk to him in 5 minutes
You wanted to swallow my money! Cough it up!
I didn't even open your wallet, Johny. I swear it on you
Why swear on me. . . ? Find someone else!
Nine bucks yesterday and eight today. Where did the ninth one go?
Could she have. . . ?
Out with it. Fast. I got to go to work
Didi, unlike him, I haven't been fired. - What did you say, Chuni. . . ?
It's true
You want me to lie to Didi?
Stop blabbering. Here's money
Have you really lost your job? - So what? He hasn't compromised. . .
on his ideals! Now he and his ideals are going to sit at home
And so what if he gets nothing to eat? He can live off his ideals
When will you come to your senses? Inflation is soaring
How will we make ends meet? - As long as I'm capable. . .
we won't starve
135 workers killed in mine collapse
You can, if you wish, use the newspaper to save lives
Else, today or tomorrow, the mines will cave in, crushing miners to death
Women will be widowed, children will be orphaned
And you will be responsible
I hear this paper fought for the people, for the truth. . .
in you father's times
The daughter, I see. . .
has sold out to the capitalists
Are you all right?
In my father's times, this newspaper fought for the truth. Always
I came to tell you exactly that. 135 miners killed
It's in all the papers. Except ours
Let the Truth prevail
My father's legacy. Reduced to mere sham? Perhaps
Going looking for a job. Bless me. - May God give you success
Come on
Uncle Chuni ! In a grand car? - Whose car is it?
Riding in the backseat! Door held open by the chauffeur! Didn't you see?
Come on. - Where to. . . ?
Let me give you a ride on the backseat! Come on !
Oh you. . . ? One minute
It's full of dust. I haven't been in here in a long time
A vast business is sometimes an aberration too
How did I ever forget this place?
Looks like an ancient press office. - Yes. Daddy's. Years ago. . .
this is where he started out from, publishing the paper
Really? - This used to be Daddy's table
I've left everything as it was. I do the cleaning and dusting myself
I don't let anyone else in here. - Forgive me, I didn't know that
I'll wait for you in your office. - No, for you, no bars
Don't leave - Why have you called me?
After the other day, I wonder what you might be thinking of me
I'm sure it's nothing nice. - I have no complaints against you
Really? - Yes
You know, there was never anyone who dared to talk me down
For the first time, the other day, it was you
When I think of it, you were right
You haven't told me why you have called me
I. . . this newspaper needs you. - I too need a job
But working with your news editor might be difficult
Mr Das has been taken off the job. In his stead, the news editor will be. . .
you. - I. . . ? News editor?
Yes, you. With you, my father's ideal will flourish again. I am confident
Thank you
That was the ideal I was born into
I feel so calm when I come here
I relive my childhood
As if Daddy is still here. For hours I talk to myself, I talk to him
Talking to yourself?
Don't you tell anyone. People will think I'm mad.
Maybe you like solitude
Solitude? Who ever likes that? But slowly, it becomes a habit
The sun comes in here quite late in the day
Better late than never
Mr Chuni Lal. . . hereabouts? - Yes, come in
He lives here? - No, over there
But he has his meals with us. Ma, someone's here for Uncle Chuni
You're his niece? - Not his own
Uncle Chuni is my uncle's friend. This is my mother
Greetings. Sit
Sushma, take this inside
Please sit. - Be seated
Are you from town? - Yes. I wandered a bit
But I'm steadfast in my resolve. I had decided not to return. . .
until I found Chuni Lal's address. - Chuni is away in Calcutta on work
Won't be back before ten tonight. - Ten tonight? Blast
Waiting that long. . .
I'm a girl you see. Had I been a boy, it'd be different
What's your name?
Please be informal with me. You are my elder
May I address you as my sister? - Sure
Look at me Didi, I'm all grown up. And they still call me by my pet name
No one uses my real name! Sunita. Isn't that a nice name?
Lovely name. - My name's Sushma
Sushma's a lovely name too. But Chuni Lal. . .
You even have a guava tree?
Lovely house, Didi ! Sushma, you must be eating raw guavas everyday!
We only get the ripe ones. The ones in the marketplace
Would you like to eat guavas? Let me get you some fresh ones
Everything's nice about Uncle Chuni. Except one thing
He bosses over girls. - No. He drinks
Booze. . . ? - You didn't know?
Don't you say I told you ! He'll twist my ears!
Didi ! - What happened?
Come here! Open your mouth !
What's this? - Open your mouth
Sushma ! For you too! Take this
Still got the sweets. Take it
What are we celebrating? Are you getting married?
Can any girl ever like him? Look at this face. Vegetable
I'm a non-vegetarian, you snake
Your brother is such a snake! I buy sweets to celebrate his job
Still he bites! - Has he found a job?
He can't even beg for a living ! My recommendation worked
Ms Sunita was here. - Who. . . ?
Sunita ! What's that?
Stop joking. I liked her
Came looking for you this afternoon. - A girl. . . ?
She left this letter for you
Not light enough to read
Didi, serve us dinner. I'll be back
Burn in jealousy. I got the letter
That's a fitting reply.
You'll be even more jealous if you were to hear
She writes, ''You must be wondering. . . ''
''how I found your address''
''7 : 30 pm tomorrow''
''At Brijwasi Sweets on Chowringhee''
''Make sure. . . ''
''Make sure you see me''
''You may not know me by name''
''I'm the one who had a sprained ankle''
One with a sprained ankle?
Keep your hands to yourself. It's a lady's letter
You see. . .
she's as dainty as an angel, as delicate as a blossom
The day before yesterday, when I held her hand. . .
her wrist seemed to elude me. - Congratulations
So you're going to see her at 7 : 30 tomorrow evening?
Oh, hello
Forgive me, I was engrossed
Lovely novel
Get on with it. - Now. . . ?
I'll keep it for later
After you
My name is Amita
You can call me Ms Amita, instead of Madam
Not on every occasion would I like you to defer to me. . .
for being the managing director. - Not out of awe. I do regard you
I see. . . ? - Yes. I respect you a lot
Any particular reason?
I think you're good at heart. . .
a beautiful person
Beautiful. . . - What's on your mind?
You fancy grams? - Sometimes I miss breakfast
Grams for breakfast? - I just make do
Very crisp. Would you like some?
I think the phone's ringing in my office
All dressed up and going to meet whom? - No one. Just trying out the fit
Then come to the club with me. - With you?
You must. - Of course I will. . . but. . .
there's a murder case I must take some photos
What if you're late? - Just photographing a corpse
Readymade pose! No posturing before the camera
Pull away the sheet and shoot. Five minutes' job
Let me come along too.
No killing looks. This is pure murder
No place for a lady to be. - You just said it's a 5-minute job
I'll wait outside in the cab. - First let me find out the address
Wait here. I'll be back
You asked for me?
Yesterday I read your article about the northeast situation
You've been rather harsh. Are you forgetting?
Government policy is brotherhood with China
But our brethren carry knives. Before 1 96 2 is over. . .
they will surely do something. - I see. . . ?
You didn't like my article, madam? - Not madam. Amita
Tell me Ms Amita. My article. . . - I like it
I'll have it composed for publishing. - Wait
Tea. . . I ordered for you too
Sit. . . be seated
Have a sandwich. - No, thank you
A sweet? - I don't like sweets
Shall I ask for grams?
No, tea will be enough
Dark, isn't it? - Yes
Let me get a candle. - Wait. . .
I think my orderly kept matches and a candle in this drawer
Or is it the upper one?
What happened?
Babli. . . ?
I called home and I find you aren't at home yet
I'm kind of held up
With work
I would've been back by eight. But my friend isn't here yet
Not Bela. Rosie. She was supposed to be here by seven thirty
Seven thirty?
7 : 30 ! Goodness!
What happened? - It's past 7 : 30
So what? - Nothing
Got to put this in for composing. It's getting late
You make sure you're back home early
Mr Gupta, wasn't Chuni with you? - No
She has the sprain. . .
What are you saying? - Nothing
She has the sprain. . .
Hey, you know me?
Let go!
But you are wearing a frock
Sunita-Sunita. . .
Are you the one who had the sprain? - Yes
Glad to meet you ! Might a look enhance the pleasure?
Show me your face, my love. - I hear it's someone else. Ruby?
Is she any girl? A girl is no girl unless she's coy!
Just look at you ! Been trying forever to take a look at you, but no go. . . ?
Reason? You're coy. That's a girl ! And that Ruby! Imposes herself on me
Imposes. . . ?
Perforce. - But people say. . .
Gossip! They malign a gentleman ! All because of Ruby! She fell for me
Chuni Lal might be handsome. But don't you stop being coy
Chuni darling ! My ears are sick of hearing Chuni-darlings
And what a horrible voice!
So this is the set-up
But who is she?
My cheek!
Blood ! Hospital !
Stop staring. Ask me why I called you. - What for?
Here. To return your money. - For only this?
May I stop the cab and get off?
Am I to leave now?
What happened? - How are you concerned?
You want to leave? Just go on. - But why are you in tears?
Crying over my foolishness! I should've posted you the money
Why did I have to scour your village in the midsummer sun?
I could've left the money there for you. Why did I leave a note?
Why did I call you here and wait for you so long? Why, why and why?
Worth wondering. Why?
Perhaps. . .
Goodness! Could I be. . .
in that with you? - That. . . ?
Love! - Looks somewhat like that
Bela is in love with someone. She says, when he touches her. . .
her whole body is electrified. Touch me
Happened? - Nothing
Thank your stars! You're saved ! Else. . .
This time. . . something happened?
Don't stare - I will. Even in my dreams
I'm in a fix. - Why?
Because you're a drunkard. How will I face the world?
I'm neither a drunk, nor Chuni Lal. - Then. . . ?
My name's Jitendra. - Sushma's uncle?
Yes. Surely you can face the whole world on that?
''Tell the world. . . ''
''I fell in love. . . ''
''because I was scared''
''Alas, I am in love''
''Let the world be jealous''
''Our story is written''
''We won't be afraid''
''Hearts we have traded of love''
''Why should we be afraid?''
''Oh, my heart skips a beat''
''Alas, I am in love''
''Tell the world. . . ''
''I fell in love. . . ''
''because I was scared''
''Alas, I am in love''
''Let's paint the town red''
''Let's show the world. . . ''
''the magic of love''
''Hearts speak. . . ''
''flowers blossom. . . ''
''in a world anew''
''What I've done, I had to do''
''Alas, I am in love''
''Tell the world. . . ''
''I fell in love. . . ''
''because I was scared''
''Alas, I am in love''
Who's that?
Where's Jitu? - Don't even mention him!
Why are you looking away? Turn around
It's sultry
And the breeze is blowing this way
And these long plantain leaves swaying in the breeze
Ma, look at this
What are those three lines on your cheek?
You see, I revere these godmen.
Today, I met one on the way
One of those who say ''Alakh Niranjan''
He was walking
I stooped to touch his feet, but he got it wrong
He lunged at me with his trident. Lucky for me, I took it on the cheek
Could've been the eye. . .
It wasn't a godman. He was about to fall at a woman's feet
Don't you force me to open my mouth. I'll use my foulest, in front of Didi
Fighting again? - He, not I
Snake! He's trying to malign me! The whole world knows. . .
Chuni Lal won't even let a female get close. And he tells her I'm a Casanova
Whom? - Sunita
To become Chuni Lal, you got to be born again
The very name bowled her over! But how do I face the world?
They'll say, Chuni Lal is after girls! I should drown myself
Not even in my dreams will I ever see your face!
If ever, I'll wake myself up
End of the friendship! Out of my way!
Let him be, Didi. He'll be fine tomorrow
Yes. . . ? - Sunita came to see you?
I liked Sunita very much. When is she coming again?
Go and play
Lofty ideal. And I swear by it. I always lend the other cheek
At your service
If you have any anger left, you can take it out on this cheek
Come on, Ruby. - Don't you dare Ruby me
Will it be the surname, Ms Chatterjee?
Let's go - Listen. . .
''Calcutta girls don't get angry. This matter is no better''
''Listen Ms Chatterjee, this is a matter of my heart''
''All dressed up and going somewhere at 50 mph?''
''Don't you make romantic souls jump out of running cars''
''On your way out, read my heart's open letter''
''Tear up that letter in your heart''
''You think you can make a fool of me?''
''You swore you love me''
''And you go fishing?''
''You tell me now, what is the matter?''
''Don't you try to evade me''
''I'll strangle myself on your red veil''
''But before I die, I'll write a letter to the government''
Be seated. I'll inform the lady
You. . . ?
Here on business. . . ?
No, I was just. . .
Working on a holiday? Or did you want to see me?
I didn't know you live here. - Then what brings you here?
Didi. . .
She's like a tempest!
This is my naughty sister, Babli
Our news editor, Mr Gupta
Never seen him before. . . - How could you. . . ?
He's here for the first time
Please. . . be seated
Yes, you never told me, what brings you here. . .
I. . .
It's so hot today
Visiting one of our neighbours? - Yes. A friend
I was looking for his address when I found out that you live here
I. . . ? - No, your sister
So you wanted to see my sister? My sister's such a darling, no. . . ?
Some tea for you? - No thanks
Mr Gupta, how many children have you?
Have you. . . ? - No. Not married yet
You don't like the idea of marrying?
Didn't. Until lately that is
Have you chosen a girl for yourself?
Next, you will surely ask who it is? I don't mind saying
Weren't you playing the piano? - En passant
En passant? Playing the piano isn't easy, is it?
She thinks no one can play it better than she does. You teach her a lesson
He'll play the piano?
Let me try
''I see your face in a new light''
''If I'm swayed, am I at fault?''
''Your eyes must be saying something?''
''If I'm swayed, am I at fault?''
''The beauty amidst dark tresses''
''Like the morning sunshine filtering through clouds''
''Wherever you look. . . ''
''Wherever you cast a look, it's intoxication all the way''
''If I'm swayed, am I at fault?''
''I see your face in a new light''
''If I'm swayed, am I at fault?''
''Downcast eyes, so dangerously enticing''
''In hidden smiles, there lurks lightning''
''Your beauty. . . ''
''Your beauty intoxicates you''
''If I'm swayed, am I at fault?''
''Your eyes must be saying something?''
''If I'm swayed, am I at fault?''
''At your every footfall, the seasons change. . . ''
''as if The Eternal Spring flows forth from you''
''Who else is as attractive. . . ?''
''Who could be as charming as you are''
''If I'm swayed, am I at fault?''
''I see your face in a new light''
''If I'm swayed, am I at fault?''
''Your eyes must be saying something?''
''If I'm swayed, am I at fault?''
Not just the music. A lot of heart went into that song. For whom?
For you. . . ?
May I leave now, Ms Amita? - Today's a holiday. Leave after lunch
Thanks, some other time. As I told you, I have an appointment with a friend
I'm rather late. Bye
Wait. . . let the car drop you. - I'll tell the chauffeur
Who was this? - Mr Jitendra Gupta
The Chinese have attacked. Buy up everything
We'll sell everything on the black-market
Only if the war deepens. In the last war, we made millions
This time, we'll make tenfold
Sunita, you might've heard of the Chinese attack
I'm leaving for Tejpur? - Tejpur. . . ?
Yes Tejpur. If I get permission, I'll go right to the front
No! You can't go there. Send someone else
I told the editor, I'm going myself
Nearly time for the flight. I won't be able to see you
I'll see you when I get back. - No! I'm not letting you go
What's up? Why are you so disturbed? - You know Didi. . .
Don't you leave without seeing me. - Who's going? Where?
Friend of mine. Leaving Calcutta. I must see her
What's come over you? Take the call
One minute
For you
Yes Mr Shukla
What did you say? Mr Gupta is going?
No! How did you take such a big decision without my say-so?
I tried to convince Mr Gupta about sending a reporter
But he said he was sure, you'd let him go
Never! I mean, stop him. I'll come and decide who goes
Chini Lal? Not Chini Lal. Chuni Lal
Chuni Lal has ''chini'' ( sugar) every morning with tea
Not even a smile? Fought with your wife this morning?
Where's Mr Gupta? - I went to stop him. . .
as soon as you told me. - And. . . ?
But. . . - Where is he?
He had left already. - Left already?
You know how important his presence is for me. . . for the newspaper
Why did you give him the chance to endanger his life?
Don't leave! Please! Stay, for my sake!
Or tell me you don't love me. - I do
But I also love my country and my profession
The Army is there to save the country. Why are you going?
To tell my countrymen how bravely they fight the enemy
After all it's for us that the Army is fighting
Until we back our Army to the last, our independence is at stake
That maybe so. But my heart doesn't permit me. . .
Silly! Nothing's going to happen to me. Send me away with a smile
''With a smile he greeted me''
''I thought it was love''
''Oh so mistaken I was''
''I thought it was an expression of amour''
''I wasn't destined to have someone. . .
''I could call my own''
''Oh why did I think. . . ''
''I deserve love?''
''Oh how can I weep?''
''Oh how do I speak?''
''I'm afraid. . . ''
''for the conclusion the world might jump to''
''I was mistaken. . . ''
''I thought it was an expression of amour''
''With a smile he greeted me''
''I thought it was love''
What is the matter Didi? Your eyes. . . - No, it's nothing of the sort
My eyes are a bit fatigued
Another sleepless night? - I'm anxious, Didi
Anxiety? Because of the war? - Are you anxious too?
Me. . . ? Well. . .
Tell me
Everyone's anxious, Babli. Go to sleep
I'm so anxious, Didi ! Oh I'm so anxious
You don't know who might die! - What are you saying?
Silly! Don't bring these things to your mind. Don't!
Didi, why are you so worked up?
I. . . For your sake, Babli. You were in tears
I hate wars. It makes me cry.
Tears sometimes are a blessing
What do I do?
I can't cry, I can't laugh. Go to sleep
Captain, I hear this bridge was built only last year
How come it has collapsed so soon?
Under the weight of refugees crossing
An incident like this in times of war? Could it be a traitor's work?
Traitors are what we should call them. Those who built it, used bad cement
Adulterated cement?
I must expose those who have betrayed the country
Read that?
And it's our newspaper that publishes it
Must be mere suspicion. How can they find evidence?
That fool Jitendra Gupta is out there. He might've unearthed some evidence
I have the key to his silence
News from Tejpur brings hope. Our forces have put up. . .
a determined resistance against the Chinese aggressors. . .
forcing the Chinese into retreat at Tejpur
A ceasefire has been announced
Hello Didi. - Hello Ms Amita
You know, the Chinese are in retreat! They didn't reach Tejpur
That's great news! - Great news!
I can't tell you what great news this is!
She's so happy! This is your chance!
Say it. Shoot - Shut up
Did you say something? - No.
Why don't you say it? - What is the matter?
Bikram has been pestering me to tell you that. . .
You won't ever say it! Let me say it
Didi, I want to marry Babli
What. . . ?
No, you can't marry Babli
Why not?
I thought you loved me like a brother. - That may be so. But. . .
I want to see Babli happy. - Babli will be very happy with me
I'm certain ! - No, you are mistaken
How come. . . ? - Is she in love with someone else?
No. . . she has told me nothing. - Then you know something?
Is there anyone else in her life?
Didi, I want to listen to the radio
Your sister was saying. . . - Never mind. Go on
We could've found out from her. Why did you send her away?
I don't think I'm answerable to you. All I'm telling you is. . .
as long as I'm alive, you won't marry Babli. Never
I know why! You don't want your sister to be loved.
Because, for yourself you haven't had a man's love
I apologise on his behalf
Fool ! Get out of here
You haven't had a man's love
Hello Ms Amita
You might be surprised seeing me here. I've just returned
Be seated
My suspicions about the bridge turns out to be true
I've found the evidence. I want to do a series of articles
Do that
Think it over, Ms Amita. The person who supplied adulterated cement. . .
is your partner in the paper
I have no partners
For the sake of the truth, publish whatever you want
I'm with you
I mean Mr Gupta, when did you return from Tejpur?
Didi. . . I knew he went there. Now who told me. . . ?
Who else? I might've been the one?
Yes Didi ! You were the one
Sit - What a lovely day!
Lovely weather
Isn't that so, Mr Gupta? - Oh yes
Beautiful weather
Let's go out somewhere, Didi ! Oh, but how can you?
You got to go to the office. Mr Gupta, my sister likes nothing but work
Liking anything else is no good, Babli. One ends up a loser
Go on, take a day out. - I'll leave after lunch
But where. . . ?
Where should I go, Mr Gupta?
Wherever you feel like. - Just go somewhere
Mr Gupta, you must be tired. You can join office from tomorrow
The fish ! Brilliant!
I love gazing at fish
The lake at botanical gardens is full of fish. I'm going there after lunch
''At heart I was always ecstatic''
''You've added to it a dash of madness''
''There's a bit of craziness in our age''
''And some of it, because we're young''
''And it puts a fire in our my breath''
''And you've added to it a dash of madness''
''True, at this moment, I'm not in my senses''
''In the ecstasy, I might swoon in your arms''
''Those eyes have devoured me''
''At heart I was always ecstatic''
''These dancing tresses, this fiery beauty''
''Oh stop yourself, please''
''My emotions are caught in a storm''
''You've added to it a dash of madness''
''At heart I was always ecstatic''
Forgive me for interrupting. - I have the whole day ahead
This article has to be in by this evening
About the cement factory? - Yes, please have a seat
No thanks, I got to get back early
Early this morning, the owners of the cement factory paid me a visit
They want me to ask Ms Amita to have you fired
Then you should've gone to Ms Amita directly
How I wish you understood me as well as I understand you
I come in hope. Hoping that you will never do a disservice to Ms Amita
How can she get hurt?
This newspaper earlier operated from the small building next door
This new building, all this new machinery. . .
the rise of this newspaper is all by dint of Ms Amita's efforts
For which, she has had to borrow in millions
From whom? - The very men who want you out
Ms Amita's entire shareholding is mortgaged to them
And the term of the loan is running out
So if they want, they can also throw Ms Amita out
I came to tell you just that. I leave the decision to you
I am sure whatever you do will be for the best
No! Mr Gupta doesn't leave!
Is this your final decision? - Absolutely
Forgive us, we have troubled you
You're making a grave mistake
The paper shouldn't pass into their hands, come what may
You want me to accept their dictate?
What option is there?
You say, your entire stock is mortgaged to them
I'm not going to be threatened !
As long as I am, Mr Gupta stays
For how long? If they wish, they can have you thrown out
Will Mr Gupta be able to survive afterwards?
Come what may, he will leave. Why should you leave your newspaper?
But how can I throw out someone who is innocent? Never!
Must you be so adamant? In your life this newspaper meant everything !
Today, you don't care?
Does Mr Gupta mean more to you?
Give me an answer! For the sake of what. . .
are you determined to ruin your newspaper, your future, your life?
Why can't you fire Mr Gupta?
I won't! I won't fire him!
Why, I ask you ! What reason is it that's stopping you?
What comes over you at the mention that he might have to leave?
Could it be that you have a soft corner for Mr Gupta?
Then my suspicion is true. You are in love with Mr Gupta
They want to throw you out! Just let them try! We'll raze this building !
Oh but this is all stone. . . we'll raze it nevertheless
We'll go on strike, red flags and all !
One of the union leaders shares a tipple with me
All I got to do is ply him some, and we have a blockade
Madam is in her office
Where are you going? Listen. . .
I'm no Chuni Lal unless I fix each and everyone of them
I'll take a photo his folks won't recognise, forget his neighbours!
Ms Amita. . .
What's this? - My resignation
Yes. I'm quitting. - Why?
Till yesterday, you were happy here. Why, all of a sudden. . . ?
Nothing. I just want to leave. - Tell me the truth
Has the cement lobby threatened you? Are you doing this for me?
For the newspaper. More than me, this newspaper needs you
But. . .
I can't run this paper all alone
You aren't leaving. - Please appoint another news editor
Why get into trouble for my sake? Please, let me leave
You are being uselessly stubborn. Take your resignation back
I'm helpless, Ms Amita. My ego won't let me work here anymore
All you care for is your own ego? What about someone else?
The managing director's words hold no meaning for you?
I don't get any of this. My departure will help keep your newspaper afloat
What else is your problem? - Don't trouble me anymore!
For God's sake! I don't accept your resignation ! You aren't leaving
You aren't and you aren't! - Irrespective, I'm leaving
Are you going somewhere? - Yes
At night. . . ?
I'm leaving this house
Come off it! Give me that suitcase. - No Didi
No. . . ?
You won't obey your sister? - No! I've always been afraid of you
But you don't scare me anymore! Get that?
What's all this happening?
Why are you misunderstanding me?
If I ever said anything untoward, it's for your own good, Babli
I'll be the judge of that, Didi. I'm not a kid anymore
Think of your own good, think of your life
My life is for you. What have I left but you?
If you leave me, this loneliness will drive me mad, Babli !
It'll drive me mad ! - Who's asking you to be lonely?
Why don't you marry?
Marry. . . ? - Yes. Get married
How long will I give you company? Everyone wants to make a family
I too want a home of my own
Babli, sit
You needn't leave home over this
I'll get you married to the man you want. I'll give whatever you want
Yes, whatever you want. - Then let me leave
Are you too shy to tell me? I know where you want to go
I know whom you want to marry. - You are mistaken
Don't you lie to me. - You're so old-fashioned
Talking to a man, laughing with him, doesn't mean I'm in love with him
Try as you might, you aren't deceiving your sister
You may assume whatever you wish. I'm leaving
Babli ! I'm not letting you leave! Never! Tell me the truth !
Why do you want to leave? - Because you've lost your senses
You want to force Jiten upon me! Let go of my hand
No Babli ! No! Don't go away! I beg of you !
Oh why do you hate me? Babli, have pity on your sister!
Babli ! Stop! For my sake!
What happened?
Babli went away
She too is gone. . . leaving me all alone
Uncle, Ms Sunita is here
You. . . ? So late at night?
What's the mater Sunita? Is Ms Amita all right?
Didi. . . ?
She looked harried today. I was concerned
You care for Didi? - Who wouldn't? Why do you ask?
She's fine.
You must take care of her always. Else, I'll quarrel with you
What are you saying? What has come over you today?
Today. . .
today's a happy day for me
Didi, I'm getting married tomorrow. - Tomorrow?
Jitu, why didn't you tell me earlier? - Are you marrying my uncle?
Your uncle is just a friend of mine. The one I'm marrying, is a lovely boy
Why are you silent? Won't you congratulate me?
Why not? Sushma, get some sweets
Sunita, are you joking? - Strange of you. . .
to take the truth for a joke, and you take a joke to be true?
Look into my eyes and say it. Everything was a joke?
Tell me you don't love me
Is it a must to marry everyone one has a light romance with?
Life is to be enjoyed. That's all I know
I'd hate to cry after I'm married.
Were you to marry me you'd never be happy?
Would it be a life of misery?
That's my lot.
I've been very lucky. I always liked a comfortable life
I'm marrying a millionaire
How come the millionaire's bride-to-be is standing in a poor man's hovel?
I don't take you for an enemy. - Thanks
I shall never forget this courtesy
I'm getting late
Whether you sell your share or whether you pawn it. . .
you aren't mortgaging my share.
Just selling my shares won't help pay back Ms Amita's debts.
Her debts run into millions
I take the responsibility. You'll get back every cent
At this point of time, you must help her
Help whom? The person who wouldn't let me marry Babli?
Why don't you understand?
Helping her now will pave the way to marry Babli.
I'm sure, she will be happy to oblige
Not afterwards. Before. First I marry. Then I help
Will you cash in on this crisis? - Give and take
I'm your little brother - I'm ashamed of you !
Will you marry me? - Marry. . . ?
Tomorrow. - Tomorrow itself?
Or the day after? - Right now! Right away!
Come on, let's find ourselves a priest
Have you run away from home? - Yes, Hollywood style
Eloping is in vogue! - Stop raving
I'm not about to let this happen. How will I face your sister?
Just let the wedding get over. Afterwards, I might even be willing. . .
to help her tide the crisis. - What kind of crisis?
All because of that Jitendra Gupta. The directors want him out
Simple. Throw him out. - Why throw him out?
Because he's worthless. What is he? Just a news editor
He has got the board warring. I don't understand why he doesn't leave
I think he's a cheap fellow
What did I say? - That's what you deserve
Come here
You stay away from him. You will marry with your sister's consent
Not her consent. Mine! I'm going to marry Bikram!
Didi's photo? In your bedroom?
Madam. . .
Mr Verma is here
Mr Verma
Ms Amita. . .
Are you all right?
Babli has gone away and I don't know where
Don't worry. She's fine. She came to my house last night
Your house? - Yes
She wants to marry Bikram
Bikram. . . ? - Yes
Why did she desert me for that?
I told her she can marry whoever she wants
You said that? Then why did she have to leave?
I don't understand. . .
if she loves Bikram, why did she slap him?
What did you say? She slapped Bikram?
Yes, he spoke against Mr Gupta
Then it's true!
Silly girl ! Why did she lie to me? I knew she doesn't like Bikram
I knew it well !
I'm not going to let her ruin her life by marrying Bikram
I won't let this marriage happen
Not Bikram. It's me Didi. Your Babli. Why are you so worried?
You ask me why I'm worried? You're worried, how can I not be?
But Didi. . . - You mustn't have slept all night
I did. Had a sound sleep. - Liar
Did you ever have a sound sleep unless your sister tucked you in?
You suffer and make your sister suffer!
I'll punish you ! Just you come home
But Didi, listen. . . - Not a word
I know. You're crying on the sly
Come back. . . come back to your sister
Coming. . . I'm coming right away. - Hurry!
And tell Bikram, you aren't marrying him
But I'm going to marry Bikram. - But why?
Why are you out to destroy yourself?
You too are out to destroy your happiness for my sake!
How can I let this happen? No! I'm not coming
Listen Babli. . .
What happened? - She won't come
She says, my happiness will be destroyed if she returns
She said that?
Meaningless drivel ! Let me see how she won't return
Have I not even this right? I'm going to drag her here
No Ms Amita ! Stop! I know why she's doing all this
She too knows that you are in love with Mr Gupta
Good God !
The only way out. . . then this is the only way
Where is she?
If you want to see me alive, come back to me! Babli ! Don't hide from me!
Madam. . .
Where's Babli?
She went out with Mr Bikram. She left this note for you
Didi, I knew you'd come here for me
But now it's time for you to think of your own happiness
By the time you receive this letter, I would've married Bikram
No. . .
Married already?
You must give a month's notice for a civil marriage
Only afterwards can I conduct the marriage
But we want to get married today! - There's the law, lady
I'm a government registrar. Not a priest
You may fill in the notification. A month afterwards. . .
you may come to get married. - But. . .
Your sister left a while ago. She wasn't in a good shape
What happened to her? - She read your letter
Then she went insane! Didn't even recognise me. She's in bad shape
Oh, what am I to do?
The family always interferes till the wedding is over
In a while, the two of you will patch up
Didi is in a bad shape. She's so miserable. . .
Where is she? - I don't know
She seems to have left here in a disturbed state a while ago
Didn't you have this shoulder to weep on? Why that shoulder?
Mr Verma, this is Gupta. I'm calling from your residence
Has Ms Amita reached home?
She seems to have left a while ago in a disturbed state.
Where might she have gone?
There's a board meeting today. Maybe. . .
We've waited long enough. Maybe Ms Amita and Mr Verma. . .
don't wish to attend this meeting. - Let them not
Gentlemen, the quorum is full
I request Mr Gulabchand to chair the meeting
Some members wish to move a no-confidence motion. . .
against the managing director.
We have to decide. . .
whether Ms Amita remains our managing director
Welcome Mr Verma. We have been expecting you
Don't look at me like that!
Don't look at me in anger! No!
I know why you're angry
For my sake, Babli has ruined her life!
Not here. - Where might she be?
At home perhaps? - Let's look in the library
I think. . .
I swear by you !
For the sake of your Babli, I can even give my life!
Just think. The newspaper we've pumped millions into, is our enemy
I went along with them for the sake of the paper!
The ones I trusted turn out to be my enemies!
They want to throw me out! They want to grab my father's newspaper
Didi. . . - Open up
I won't let them have my father's newspaper!
You hear? I shall never let that be!
Never! Never!
Call a doctor
No Mr Verma ! Not as long as I'm alive!
Never! - What. . . ?
After I'm gone. . .
Mr Verma, call Jitendra
Jiten is right here, Didi Why can't she recognise people?
You want to tell Jitendra something?
Tell him I haven't mortgaged Daddy's old office
Let him start a new paper from here. - I shall tell him that
But don't ever tell him that. . . - What. . . ?
That I too. . .
Never tell him that! Never!
Just tell him to start a new paper
The Eternal Spring will return
