People may accuse me...
...of stopping the story at a point...
...where it should not be stopped
lf the arrow has been strung...
...and Arjun is ready to let go of it...
...it should have been thrown
l did not stop the story there...
...because it is a point for thinking
lt is a point to turn around and...
...take stock of what has happened...
...and what will happen when the arrow is thrown
Dhrupad is Sage Drona's...
...Sworn enemy...
...while Arjun is Drona's favorite disciple
lt is impossible that Arjun will miss
So, what will happen?
Brave Karna has already been insulted...
Which neither Karna nor Duryodhan...
...will tolerate
So, what will happen...
...once the arrow is released?
This question is of importance because...
...the answer to the question...
...is the backbone of this story
So, let me begin the story from the point...
...where Draupadi stops Karna and...
...no other Prince is willing to try
So, Arjun left the group of Brahmins
The bow is not made of words, Brahmin
Nor is the target easy
Will you be able to string the bow...
...which none of us could string?
He doesn't seem to be a Brahmin
Look at the strength
Look at those muscles
He looks like a winner to me
Long live the Brahmin
O King
You have insulted us by allowing the Brahmin...
...to participate
You have shamed yourselves by not achieving the aim
Did you construct this device to insult me?
You have insulted us
You have insulted us
Only Princes are allowed to participate...
...in this ceremony
Who say's that?
l won't talk to a milkman...
...and demean myself
By saying this, you have insulted Dwarka
Have you forgotten the day...
...when we threw you out of Mathura
He is our grandfather
We must show him respect
Do not waste your anger on him
At least, see if...
...the person is worthy of your anger
Be careful while giving a blessing or a curse
Nonsense!
We are getting side tracked
The point is; The King of
Penchal has insulted us... ...by allowing the Brahmin...
...to take part
He should be punished for this
For what, King of Madra?
How can allowing a Brahmin to participate...
...be a crime?
A Brahmin gave birth to the warrior caste
We will not listen to you
l know that, O Son of Gandhari
Would l thrash them?
You are as bad as Balram
Keeping calm can be a great strength
Look after Arjun
There is only one solution
Order your daughter...
...to choose one of us...
...or we will throw her in the fire...
she came from
Throw her into the fire
No Prince
She is my responsibility now
Throw her into the fire
Don't come nearer or else...
...lf you agree l have won your hand...
...honor me with your garland
Here, Karna
Beware
No one could have done that...
...except Sage Parshuram...
...Sage Drona, Lord lndra and Arjun
l salute your teacher
Admit that they are the Pandavas
l am pleased to see them
ls that Bhim?
Yes. The other one...
...is Duryodhan
Okay. Now stop this clash
As you wish
On behalf of the Yadavas...
...l congratulate Draupadi and...
...the King of Panchal
This youngster has established his right...
...over Draupadi in no uncertain terms
Draupadi, too, has accepted him
So, why should you be angry?
You should be ashamed
My blessings
Take Draupadi home
Brother
Let us tell mother that...
...we have brought alms...
...and then present Draupadi
Will you call her alms?
What's the harm? What do you say?
As you wish
We have brought back alms
Share it amongst yourselves
Who's this girl?
She's princess Draupadi of Kampilya
Arjun has won her hand
A happy wedded life
But mother
You have ordered that she be shared
Share her?
Am l an idiot...
...that l'll ask her to be shared?
You spoke about alms...
You described her as alms
ls a wife, alms?
You lied to your mother
Now share her if you can
What's the problem?
Ask your brothers for whom...
...a wife is like chattel
ls this Bharat's tradition?
You are the epitome of Truth. You tell me
Woman is strength
Man is incomplete without her
She may be a mother or a wife...
...a daughter or a sister...
...she is to be respected
Bhim and Arjun have insulted womankind
A mother's word is to be obeyed
Her order can never be unacceptable
What are you saying?
Yes
Mother has never said anything unacceptable
There must be something cosmic in her order
Whatever is happening today...
...has its roots in the past
Are you saying that...
...Draupadi should be shared
l did not say that
You said it. You ordered it
l thought it was alms
That's true...
...but think mother...
...neither you nor l know...
...what's going to happen in the future
May be it was Time who spoke through you
Can you give an example?
Of course, mother
Jatla had married seven Sages
Pachchitti had married...
...ten brothers
What's the difference?
l do not know how to escape the trap...
...of Reality
Accept my greetings
Live long, my child
How's everyone at Dwarka?
Everyone is fine there
What's wrong here?
We are facing a grave problem
Bhim and Arjun brought Draupadi...
...and said to me;
We have brought alms
Without looking up...
...l asked them to share it
How can Draupadi be shared?
Ask Draupadi
What will she say?
Ask her
She was the one who asked for such a boon...
...in her past life
...from Lord Shiva himself
When he said it was impossible...
...she would not listen
Even for Lord Shiva it was difficult
What boon did you ask for?
Will you tell them or should l?
She asked for five boons instead of one
She asked for a husband who...
...was an epitome of Truth...
...had the strength of Hanuman...
...who was an ace archer...
...exceptionally beautiful and...
...very patient
Did you not ask for all this?
Did not Lord Shiva say;
One person cannot have all those qualities
Before asking you should have thought about...
...whether your request was reasonable
You asked for a boon...
...and the Lord has granted it
Yudhishthir is the epitome of Truth
That's the first boon
None is stronger than Bhim
That's the second boon
Arjun is today's ace archer
That's the third boon
Nakul is the handsomest man alive
The fourth boon
Sahadev is the most patient
The fifth boon
Now if you wish to insult the Lord...
...by returning the boons, then do so
Why are you looking at Draupadi?
Arjun did you win her hand...
...but she is not chattel
A mother is like God...
...and you lied to her
Aunt Kunti
Being a mother does not mean...
...that you can give any order...
...without thinking
You have crossed the limits of motherhood
From today, this life is your...
...sacrifice and repentance
Lord Shiva has granted a boon...
...in your past life
Draupadi has married five husbands...
...each one of them with a special quality
This means that...
...the Pandavas did not die
So, the Pandavas had come here
Which means that...
...it was Arjun who hit the target
Even l wondered how a Brahmin could achieve...
...a target meant for Arjun
Aren't you happy that...
...your sister is married to Arjun?
Queen Kunti wants to marry her to all five of them
-What? -Yes father
Doesn't Queen Kunti know...
...that Draupadi is not chattel
l will ask Draupadi...
...to refuse
Krishna told her that...
...the marriage was her repentance
-Repentance? -Yes father
Victory to the king
Come Vidur
You are sounding excited today
There's news from Kampilya
Has Duryodhan been successful
No. But...
...Then it must be Dushasan
He, too, is brave
That is good news indeed
Forgive me
Even Dushasan was not successful
Then what's the good news?
lt was Arjun...
...who was successful at the ceremony
But the five brothers...
The real good news is that...
...the five Pandavas are...
...are still alive
That is really good news, Vidur
Now, l not need feel shamed before my ancestors
There is no need for that my king because...
...you were not a part of the conspiracy
God speaks through the people and...
...the people say that...
...the ashes of Varnavat are smeared on your face
Use this moment by...
...welcoming the Pandavas and the new bride...
...to wipe off the ashes from your face
Send a messenger to Kampilya...
...to convey how glad you are...
...at their being alive
Bless them and say...
...you are eager to welcome the new bride
Hence, they should return to Hastinapur at once
But will they believe that...
...l had nothing to do with the wax house?
Yudhishthir will believe it
As far the others...
...they will obey him
Why are you waiting?
Go and tell...
...Queen Kunti and the Pandavas...
...that l am eager to meet them
You know how glad l am that...
...they are alive
This unlucky king...
...your unlucky brother...
...has forgotten what happiness is
After Pandu's death this...
...is the first such moment
Go Vidur. Go quickly
As you wish
Greetings Grandsire
May you live long
Come. Sit down
Where have you been?
l was with the king
But why are you...
An archer must keep his arrows sharp
Who knows what they will be needed
These, too, are bound to Hastinapur's throne
You seem depressed
This is the era of depression
The values which were the foundation of society...
...are crumbling like sand castles...
...unable to protect us
The nation is on the mouth of a volcano
Who knows when it will erupt?
lf we cannot stop this, nothing will be saved...
...neither life nor its values
Looks like our society is beyond improvement
lt will break...
..and from its ruin will rise another society
My father's blessing has become a curse
l could no renounce this world...
...and Mother Satyavati burdened me...
...with her sorrow
But Grandsire
l know the king is sending you to Kampilya
That's why l am honing my arrows
Grandsire!
Did you not think Vidur...
...how one nation can have two Crown Princes
l have thought of that
Whatever happens the King cannot go against...
...the wishes of the people...
...and the people want Yudhishthir
Don't talk like a child, Vidur
Filial love has enhanced Dhritirishtra's Blindness
He prefers to listen to Shakuni...
...rather than me
Do you want me to prevent them?
No
But neither you nor l...
...can control the events any longer
-Unfortunately yes. -No bad luck
Whatever is to happen...
...is the result of past events
The Present is not born from the womb of Luck...
...but from the womb of the Past
l am Hastinapur's Past, Vidur
What should l do?
Go Kampilya...
...and bring back the Pandavas
Explain to Yudhishthir...
...that the season in Hastinapur is not right
The moment l swirled the mace...
...he started running away
He refused to listen to me
Duryodhan
None could be more foolish then you
But what have l done
What else can l call you when you laugh...
...instead of crying
Karna and Dushasan have nothing to lose
Dushasan will remain a Prince for all times
They won't seize Anga from Karna
Who are they?
The Pandavas, Karna
Pandavas?
But Uncle they...
Don't be silly
They are alive and well
Your father is happy to hear that...
...Arjun is returning with his bride
Arjun
Yes. The very same Arjun...
...whom you wanted to...
...attack along with his brothers
Let them be saved
They cannot harm me
l am already the Crown Prince
The same stupidity again
You have not understood your father as yet
He will not be able to face Vidur's and...
...Grandsire's loyalty to Hastinapur
So, do not laugh
Think
What's there to think?
Those who don't want to think, say that
The King has asked Vidur...
...to bring back the Pandavas...
...so that he can bless them...
...as well as give them...
...the crown of Hastinapur
lmpossible
l will not allow it
lf you sit there and laugh all this will happen...
...in front of your eyes
Can l talk?
l know what you will say
l also know what you'll reply
Like true warriors we should kill them...
...before they return
One arrow was enough to break your bow
You also saluted him for that
l was not ready then
Nor was l warned
Who would be ready against a mere Brahmin
You wait here. l will go and stop them
Sit down Karna
Allow me to think
lnstead of reminding me of my failures...
...think of your own...
...failures since childhood
You poisoned Bhim
What happened?
He came back stronger
You conspired against Yudhishthir
What happened?
He became the Crown Prince
He prepared the house of wax
What happened?
Thy have allied with King Dhrupad
That is why l say; Let us face the situation...
...like warriors
ln war, even the losers are respected because...
...cowards do not lose
They run away
l do not wish to test you
-Who knows... -Uncle!
By God, had someone else said this...
...l would have pulled his tongue out
But...
...lf there is a 'but' ...
...sit down and learn...
...to listen to your elders
Remember, Shakuni is not a coward
l may not have any divine weapons
But l know the art of warfare
Please forgive my friend Karna
Then ask him to sit down
My friend, this concerns my future
Please sit down
For you l have sworn to die. l'll sit
Forgive me Uncle
What should we do?
The situation is very serious
We can use Draupadi to cause quarrels between them
Even you Uncle know that...
...we have been trying to do that
The five bodies have one Soul
They will never quarrel between themselves...
...even for a beauty like Draupadi
Why not tempt Dhrupad...
...with the royal treasury
Why would he forsake his Son-in-law for that?
You are getting old, Uncle
Besides...
...it may prove expensive for us
How come?
Because...
...to get Dhrupad we may have to lose Sage Drona
The two of them are sworn enemies
How can they stay in one camp?
l, too, do not like Sage Drona
But we cannot lose him to get Dhrupad
His disciple Arjun was enough to vanquish his army
So, we need Sage Drona
Whatever you say Uncle...
...there will be war
Then there is only one solution
Be stubborn
Duryodhan it is now in your hand
