Why the light is on there? Unable to sleep due to
excitement of… … of getting released
tomorrow? Be seated. Tell me
what is going on your mind? Nothing. l’m here for 5 years. l think my sister must be
having atleast 2 kids by now. l’m thinking of nice
suitable names for them. Do you think they are
not christened as yet! No. My sister won’t do it
without my presence. What names have you
thought of? You tell me.
-Me! – Yes. These are names for boys,
these, for girls. Choose one from each. Now from this lot. Shanti!
lt is my mother’s name. Your mother’s name! – Yes. Had your mother chosen
names for you like this? No. – Then? My son’s name is
Shivaramakrishna Daughter’s name is Sri. Offer ‘Archana’ in
their names. Mother you told me that
you are taking me to father. We are going there now. You are leaving without
breaking the coconut! l forgot. My mother used to say a
rotten coconut is a bad omen. lt happened so that day. My father got married
the second time. When my mother questioned,
he replied that… … he lost interest in her
and threw money at her.-Go. She cried all day for being
cheated in marriage… … holding us close. Those were her last words. Who is she? – My mother.
She is dead, sir. l take your leave.
-Okay. What’s this? A grave
in the middle of a farm? lt is their farm.
So they built it. Of course not. Their mother
took loan from us against it. Village court permitted us
to confiscate it against it. We don’t like a grave in the
middle of farm. Break it. Sir, l’ll repay the loan.
Don’t break mother’s grave. He promises to repay.
Give him one chance. Their father had deserted
them. Mother is dead. He is just a kid.
How can he repay? He will cultivate the farm.
-He can! l’ll do it, sir.
l’ll repay your loan. lf he couldn’t, l’ll repay. Okay l agree. l want
it on yearly basis. You mean in installments.
-Whatever it means.-Sir… Mother used to say
those stars are us. Your sister will pass
out in 1st class. Has God said so, sir? Trust my words.
Break the coconut. l hope the best happens. There is a flower in it! Good! 1st class is confirmed! Sister… Gouri, give me back my pen.
-Here it is. What is this? Be careful. Madam, here are your books. Be careful. You knew she will drop if
you warn her. – l knew. l’m going to exam. Don’t
need books. Keep them in. Take them. You get better
marks if you copy. Come on, brother!
Let’s move. – Okay. Do your best. Must
get good marks. – Sure. Why not you accompany her!
-Why do you say so? You told her so,
so many times that… … she might reproduce
your words than the answers. She is beautiful! Got into
the next compartment. Let’s go. Let’s go.
-Get in. Where is he gone! You look beautiful
in this dress. What’s your name?
Amala? Vimala? Kamala or Pramila
by any chance? Good songs. – Voice is
sweet too. Want to hear? Not now.
lsn’t teasing girls wrong? l’ll do as l please.
Who are you to question me? Look at this. l’ll kill
you if you interfere. Have you finished talking? Brother, he slapped you! Play now. l lose again. But
l’ll defeat you someday. l’m waiting for the day
you defeat my son. Greetings.-Be seated.l heard
that your sister is giving exam. Yes. – She is studious.
-By your blessings, sir. Brother, buttermilk for you. Move aside.
-You are at it again! Those stars are…
-Mother used to say so, That’s you and me. , right?
-Yes. Will one of them disappear if
she leaves you after marriage? She won’t go anywhere.
l’ll bring the groom here. May l take the eggs
to fair tomorrow? Sure, but be careful. l told him to be
careful, not her. You are always dropping
things. Only twice a day. Greetings, Krishna s – Greetings. What brings you here
at this hour? l’ve brought an alliance
after short listing. From which place? From Nujiweedu. His
grandpa is a landlord there. Does he have a own house?
-He has a bungalow. What about a car?
-They have 4 cars. That means the boy is in US He is a green card holder. He’ll take his wife immediately
after wedding l suppose. By flight. You spoke as if
you heard them saying it. l don’t want this alliance.
-Why? Others jump at this offer.
You seem disappointed. l don’t want a prince… … but someone who takes
care of her, right here. Hi, Santosh, it’s me, dad. What are you doing? l can hear it. l told you
many times to take me too. You are being selfish. l know you can hear me. Don’t use the trick on me which
you use when mother scolds you. Okay, enjoy the
party thoroughly. He can hear this perfectly. l heard that you donated
to London royal orphanage. lt’s not a big amount. 10,000 pounds isn’t a
big amount. But you could use it for public
relations like throwing a party. That would help expand
our business. But it’s an orphanage… There are many to accept
donations. But don’t do such useless
things. l don’t like it. Why are you in bad mood? l’m your best friend Did mother scold you? For not asking if she hit me. You know mother well.
Why do you get upset? l’m not upset.
Do you know onething? Socrates became a
great man becuase of… … his tolerance
towards his wife. l’m not talking about you
but of Socrates wife. Brother-in-law, l’m
Srinivasarao from lndia. l’m somehow getting along
with your sister. That is not new. lt’s your brother
from lndia. How are you brother?
What’s the news? Lot of news. On coming 1 4th
is Lalith’s engagement. She is in love. l objected.
She cried and l gave in. Love! ls the groom rich? That is why l conceded.
You must come for marriage… … and handle it.
Tell my brother-in-law. Aunty, l’m Lalli. How are you? Bring Santosh along.
l’ve seen him as a kid. Okay. You are not coming.
-Why? You have a conference to
attend in US, forgot? Stop the car here. How are you, dear?
-Chocolate for you, brother. So, you have not forgotten
to give us chocolates. Welcome, to the bride. Bride! When is the wedding? Next Friday!
lt’s only 15 days away. Yes. Both of you must come.
-We will come 2 days early. 2 days early! No.
l’m taking her with me, now. Now! – Of course. How early
should l come for your wedding? -l don’t know. Ask brother
-You You tell me how many days
in advance should l come? Atleast 15 days before
the wedding. – Right. My wedding is 15 days
away too. l’m like your sister too.
Please send her with me. The reason is l’ve never
been away from her till now. Same with her too.
But you have to send her. Aren’t you a darling? Please, brother. Do you want to go? l won’t you if you say so. Go. Has the rabbit from the
moon landed on the earth? ls that you it changed into?
-Appears so, The glitter in the
stars loved you ls their shine blended
into you? – Appears so, Has the path followed you
like a smooth sailing boat,, ,,or it became smooth
by itself? What is it? Or changed it’s
course because of you? Did the land change its course
because of you and turned a river? Oh prime youth! you have arrived! Do you know where to land? You have brought
joy along but ,,,, do you know
whom to gift it to? ls it a new form of
Kuchipudi dance? Have your tender feet
taught you this? Has the folk form has
stepped out of villages,,,? ,,, lnfluenced by the
modern culture? Hidden feelings have
come out in the verses of song The tunes reveal the
hidden thoughts With little torments
and like the unstoppable haste ,,how long will this journey continue? ls this a plan ahead for tomorrow? Why is there such a haste? lf you ask for the distance
between sky and earth,, ,,the wings would disappear! lf you ask for the shore to make them one ,,, ,,directions would shudder! Santosh, here is a big
bouquet for you. lt’s me… Do you recognise me? She isn’t a beauty but a beast.
She is our distant relative l’m her close relative l heard that even vegetable
venders in US speak English. ls it true?
-You have improved a lot. Do you have mosquitoes here?
-How many do you want? Are there no mosquitoes in
London? – No. That means London has
not developed yet. Don’t worry. You can carry a
suitcaseful when you return. Who is that girl? l came all the way from
London for you and you… … don’t even come to
receive me at the airport. You are so beautiful! l’d marry you had
l known it. Do you remember my mischief
as a kid? l won’t get a chance once you
are married. Do l do it now? l’m not Lalita.
-What! – l’m her friend. Why didn’t you tell me
this for so long? -Those anklets…. – lt is
normal to err at this age. You don’t have to apologise -She is… – l know,
she is your friend. l mistook her for you and… -She hates such things.
-What does she like? l’m coming.
Let’s go. Santosh! My foot! What’s your name? l know
you won’t tell me. My name is… l came from London. Generally people here have bad
opinion about boys from foreign. That they are romeos
and are con men. ls it? You have heard right.
l’m such a boy so beware. Where is Sugar? Go get it.
-Oh, God! Why did you get startled? l thought it is that monkey
again. – Which monkey? The monkey from London. Oh, that boy!
He grew up in London. Not everyone from London
is like that. lt’s not him but his parents
upbringing that should be blamed. Don’t shut me up. l’ll give
them a lesson if l meet them. Am l not right? – Do you
know whom are you asking? She is her new aunty.
-That money is her son. Sugar is too less. who is it? My name is JP. Unfortunately l’m your friend
and business partner. What makes you be angry at
me so early morning? Of course. lt’s your
daughter’s engagement. Wedding is close too. Don’t you know to assign
me some responsibilities? Pack up and come here… … with the family. l got the news from kitchen
that you called me a monkey. No. l said London monkey.
-Why? Sorry, l should have called
you a guerrilla. Who called me? Move aside? – Which way?
-Upstairs. Okay… Okay. This is my sister.
-Greetings. He is JP, my partner in
construction business. Served 20 years in Central
ministry. He is an Andhraite. Who is that boy?
-My nephew from London. lntroduce me to him.
-l’ll. Don’t hurry. lndia is full of long
skirts and half sarees. What are you doing
in my room? This isn’t your room.
Get out. l came into
your room by mistake. Hope you have not
seen anything. Don’t touch it.
l won’t like it. Give it to me. lt’s given to me
by my brother. Your brother gave it? Go away. l’m teasing you every day.
Any other girl would.. ..have slapped me. But you didn’t.
Does that mean… -You aren’t wearing a towel.
-Now you aren’t. l never expected someone
to fall for me. Now… Either laugh and speak or do vice versa lt’s someone like you.
Calls up but never speaks. That boy from London
is so charming. Come to the point. – He and
my daughter are a good match. Your mediation can
unite them. My sister will fume.
But l’ll handle her. You tell your daughter
to befriend him. My daughter just
needs a signal. She will go to any
lengths to… Why did you put it there? That’s the only
place l’ve for it. Whom are you sending e-mail?
-To my dad. Do you love your dad?- Why?
Won’t you love your dad? l love him as much as l
love ‘halwa’ (a sweet) l love ‘halwa’ too. What do you want to make?
-‘Halwa’. Why do you take trouble?
l will prepare it. Never mind.
You mind your work. For whom? – For the
person whom l like. How do you know? That is salt! That is… – Salt!
-You mind your work. She is going to feed him! Mind your business. What is this twist? You said you love it.
l made it for you. So, besides milk, sugar,
cashewnuts and raisins, … l put in kisses too. ‘Salt and camphor look alike
but taste different.’ Take my advice. Don’t eat it. Hi son-in-law. – Yes, uncle.
-Have you eaten it? Looks like my
daughter made it. You eat it first.
-No, you eat it. For my sake, please eat.
-How courteous! ls it tasty, daddy?
l cannot describe how tasty. What are you doing, rascal? Don’t eat it all.
Keep some for Santosh. lt cannot be for only for
two of you. Give me some. Why not? lt is all yours. Oh! lt’s full of cashewnuts,
raisins! You’re a true friend. Not just in business
but by heart too. Tasty? l think salt
is a bit in excess. My foot, you… l’ll come wait What happened?- You try
something other than cooking. Making ‘halwa’ isn’t your
cup of tea.- Then whose else? lt’s me, the girl who
came for Lalli’s wedding. lt’s me l washed that saree
and this blouse. lt belongs to that monkey
without a tail from London. l’ll deal with you You dare tease me!
You and your messy hair! You! l hate the name Santosh. l swear on my brother ”lt’s me… lt’s me.” Where? Has Santosh come here?
-l don’t know. He isn’t there. You naughty!
You are here! – No. Here. My friends are
coming the evening. Go no where. l want to
introduce them to you. She is Nimmi, she is Anita,
Sarita, Avita and she is lndu. This is my shorts, this is
sandal and this is fruit peel. Have it. – Give me.
l’ll give it to Santosh. Where are you going?
You work all the time. l didn’t make it.
That’s why he thanked. Do you want me to come.
-Have it. What was l saying?
-About Santosh. His father is one of the top
500 millionaires in London. Has a huge mansion,
100 acres of estate,… …4 Benz cars, a software
company and a chartered plane. This is only half of it.
-You have no less. Yes. My father has
100 crore property. -What else does he have?
-You May be nothing What was l saying?
-About Santosh. Santosh is a millionaire.
l’m a millionaire. Everyone here is
a millionaire. l’m a millionaire too. Really! How much
money do you have? A small house in my village.
10 acres of farms. 4 oxen, 25 cows
and 40 chicken. Above all this, l’ve a
brother who dotes on me. That’s like millions for me. What are you looking at? l find a new
look in Sri each day. Your sister has
completed education. Are you getting her
married this year? l’ll if l find a good alliance.
-l’ve the same problem. My son completed graduation
in agriculture. l asked him to go to US
for further studies. But he wanted to stay
back and do farming. Such boys are rare these days. That’s why we are
receiving many alliances. But he wants to marry
only your sister. Do you have any objection? No, but.
-Want sister’s consent? Yes and l also want to
consult the station master. He is useless except
for giving signals to trains. Trains won’t move unless
signal is given. You are head of the village.
l’m head of his family. Trains may come late
but not you. Go ahead. Let the girl come
as you said. Engagement is an auspicious
occasion. Why to cry? My daughter will go away to
London after marriage. The thought of it is… You seem to be positive
about it. l’ve already bought
the tickets. l’m going to read out
the wedding card. K.Srinivasrao’s…
-Who is speaking? You may continue.
-Stop your nonsense. Why did you stop, pandit?
-He asked me to. Priest, you may proceed. When will you marry?
-Why do you bother? l’ve a friend if
you want to. He has 10 chicken,
4 oxen and horses too. lt will be a perfect match. What’s the time? l’ve no watch. – You have
no brains either. – l know. Sister, your entry brought
charm to the party. The lighting is dull
compared to you. Nonsense. Say something else.
-You don’t bother. Only one thing is lacking.
-What’s that? – This one. What’s this?
-A small necklace. Must be expensive.
-Costs only 15 lakhs. Buttering up is of no use. This isn’t necessary, brother.
-Never mind. l feel so happy looking at them. l feel like puking. l can’t bear it Come with me, Santosh. This is Santosh l speak of,
my boyfriend. Why cannot you come close and
put your hand on my shoulder? Our eyes met ,,,,,,,
-You pig… 2 Pigs met,, Really, Lalli?
-No. Nothing Sri, come here. Sri, she is Rita,
She is… Chat with them.
l’ll be back. Why do you look
at me like that? Why do you follow me? Come aside.
-l won’t come. lt’s for your sake.
-Please go. What will people think
when they notice us? That’s the reason l called you.
-l won’t come, that’s it. Your blouse hooks
are open. l won’t believe you.
You are lying. You have a mole on your back. Won’t believe me even now? Lalli your friend
is calling you. One moment. Fix my blouse hooks. l didn’t want to wear your
dress. Look what happened. lt’s okay. lts done Are you searching for me?
l know you were. To tell you that you are
a good monkey. lf the monkey is
seeming good, then.. That shows something
is triggered in you. Nothing is triggered Everyone feels ‘something’ Those are inexplicable Even if ‘love’ is hidden inside ,, Even if you say ‘no, nothing’ Shall l spy, do research and catch you! Come, Come
l have called you thousand times! Listen girl! Come! No response!
Come tomorrow! ls this a new type of dance? Oh family girl! Come
why are you obstinate? Come in front of me
Come dear! this way! Would lend you a hand dear! Why do you doubt me like this? There are no handcuffs
Why do you fear? lf naughtiness knocks your window Don’t, yet sleep like this
hidden under a dim cover! This moment asks to
dance without any fatigue ,, ,,and is a pretentious happy naughtiness! Beneath your sole
this earth has jumped in joy! What a wonder! Has the milk pot in sky
come to your eyes ,, ,,,to sign on this happiness This moment come with me! At a time the dance rhythm syllables ,, ,,drive away, staring at ,, You are a glittering star in fright! At this moment when
ecstatic orgies take place Time would come to a stop! l wrote some love letters to
someone in college days. But kept myself away
on knowing his true colours. He is now blackmails me
to ruin my wedding. He wants her bring money and
jewels to his room else,… … he will distribute the
letters like pamphlets. ls this what you
mean by ‘something’? Only an youngster understands
another youngster’s problems. l didn’t know whom to tell.
that’s why l told you. l know how to extract
those letters from him. This is his house Seems like he isn’t in. Let’s get hold of the
letters before he comes. There is a dog.
-Be careful. You go that way.
l’ll go this way. l found the letters. What do we do now?
-Run. You could have closed
the bathroom door. You are responsible for it. You screamed just for
touching you. No. You are responsible.
-Wait. Give me the shampoo bottle. Want to have bath? What now? – Watch
how it will run away. Oh God!
-This is no ordinary dog. Get down and find
a way to get out. You walk out the door.
The dog will follow you. l’ll follow suit
with the letters. Joking? – Ofcourse not. l’m serious.
-Then you go first. lt will bite you. Keep it on my head!
Take it off. Oh god What do we do now? Sing a song.
-Do l sing so well! No. To make the
dog run away. Look what a stupid
thing you have done. Stop it. l’m getting
wet because of you. lt’s my girlfriend.
-l didn’t ask you. l expected you would ask.
-Why do l bother? How many girlfriends
do you have? 1 4, including you. l’m not your girlfriend. Girls always mean the
opposite of what they say. Then l’m.
-l said the same. Friendship for me is,
helping each other. There were so many youngsters
in the party. But, you chose to
seek my help. Because you considered
me a friend. That makes you a girl friend. Yes, but l don’t
mean the other way. Boys and girls have
numerous friends. But one falls in love
with only one. l love a girl. You must be in love with
someone too. Who is it? Shower has stopped.
-Great discovery! Find a way to get out
first. – ldea! – What? l’ll make the dog
enter the tub and… …we escape from
the other side. You could have told me much
earlier. – l told you now. Come Give me the letters. Else, l’ll shoot you.
-Shoot me. No shooting girls.
-Shoot me. No Please, shoot me. There are no bullets in it.
-l’ve the gun. How dare you blackmail! Will you trouble girls again?
-No. Don’t hit me. What happened? Oh god Give them to her.
We got them. My heart is beating
normally now. Thanks. Thank him.
-No, thank her. He took more trouble than me.
Thank him. – No thank her. Thanks to both of you.
-No need of it between us. l don’t mind it. Come l can sleep peacefully now. You called me! Only friends, nothing more. Have juice. l think something broke.
-Glass. ls that toy horse yours? lt broke when the
ball hit it. Your hurt shows how
much you love this toy. My brother gave it to me. lt has been with me
since my childhood. l never thought
l’d lose it. Don’t cry. Please.
-l miss my brother. Counting the stars? l’ll also count. l missed the count. lt’s the horse your
brother gave you. l toiled hard to join it lt has marks of joints
like the moon has a spot. l decorated the horse
to conceal the marks. You may remove them
if you don’t like. lt’s nice.
-Really? You didn’t thank me.
So l thanked myself. Bye. Did you call me? Why did you take so much trouble? Do l tell the truth? l want to see
happiness on your face. That’s all? Really? ls there no ‘something’? Has the mirror
ever questioned you? That you look different?
l noticed the change in you, That you don’t respond
when your name is called l thought it is strange The shine in your
eyes is my reflection Your lips utter my name l’m convinced of it My every step, automatically
leads to you, They are out of my control Don’t fear,
lt’s true that,,, ,,,there is a change in you Who gave you the right to
bring change in me? Ask your heart and
don’t blame me Earlier your heart
never beat so fast Don’t worry
Ask me l’ll teach you dance steps to match it Why do you fret
when l go away? Control of feelings of love
are not in our hands, Brother…
-What’s it? Someone has come in between
you and your sister. Who will come between us?
-Come and see. You must see for yourself.
Look there. l see stars. So what? That’s you and Sri. There is
an other star in between. lt must be for a temporary
period. Go, mind your work. l see. Fine.
lt got me worried. That’s Sri and the
other is brother. What are you looking at? Wondering who is in
between those 2 stars. lt’s not you. Go. Do you need spectacles
during wedding ceremony? She will wear even
at bed time. She doesn’t need as the
lights will be put off anyway. Look at what she talks
at this age! All l can do at this
age is, talk. Will you give me a kiss?
-Then what? – l love it. There is still time for it. We have the time now. Don’t. Bless you. Mother, have you ever hit me? Why will she hit you?
She will hit your father. Why will l hit you? What’s wrong with him today?
-Bless them first. Skip it. Have you ever
hit me in life? How can anybody
feel like hitting you? What is the matter?
-Thanks. Let’s talk later. No going out of town
once you are made a bride. Times have changed.
-A custom is a custom anytime. Eat ‘Ariselu’ (a sweet)
-Serve me only 2. -What’s the matter?
-l’m not hungry. Didn’t he like the food? lt’s not so. He isn’t
in good mood since morning. lt was not intentional
but unexpected. You can kiss me now
if you want. Not just a kiss but
you may do as you wish. Why do you cry? For hurting you. Wipe your tears. Why are you crying? Your tears bring tears
in my eyes. Don’t know why. lt’s my mistake. Sorry. lt was my mistake. l shouldn’t have done it.
-No. l overreacted. lt’s not wrong
with ones beloved. l didn’t know what
is right or wrong. How can you know? You were
not born and brought up here. You should have told
me it was wrong. l’m so happy.
-Me too. Do you think l don’t
know about you both? l was watching you both heading
for marriage during my wedding. Let me go. – l’ll get you
married after my marriage. You… Hurry up before
sir gives green signal. You are working hard as if it’s
your own sister’s marriage. l’ve a sister but
that girl has no brother. l take your leave, sir.
-Master, you forgot this. What’s this? – For madam.
-Take care of the house. Be ready. lt’s time for
the groom’s party to arrive. Why are you standing here?
-l’m not coming for wedding. Why? Angry? – You don’t take
me and my daughter seriously. We have to receive
the groom’s party. Why have l come
for the wedding? To clean the dinner plates?
-Who said so? No one. l feel so.
-Why are you so angry? Everyone leaves
after the wedding. My daughter and me
will be left behind. Look at me, daughter.
-l see. Sister, come here. What’s the matter, brother? What did we discuss
yesterday? – What? About his daughter
and your son’s marriage. We confirmed it. Let’s discuss in detail
after the wedding. Okay, dear? Bless me, aunty.
-Let’s go. What do you say now? Where did l keep it? Where did you get it?
-ln the backyard. Put it back there. – Fool. Well come, brother-in-law. Engagement is over. Forget the
case and talk of fees first. This way, please. Wait. There is time
for everything. You may proceed. – Proceed!
Don’t you have brains? Why did you stop again?
-He is scolding me. Scolding you!
l’ll kill you. l’ll handle you later.
Don’t wait. Click the photos. Wait Sit down. This is a family photo.
-That’s why l brought her. l got a joker.
-Come and join us. Get up you stupid.
-What’s the time? l don’t have a watch
Oh my dress! Why do you trouble Dolly?
-Today is the last day for it. Why? Tonight is the wedding.
Everyone go home tomorrow. You feel sad for going away
from me, to London, right? Yes Lock the door
after you finish. – Okay. What brings you here?
go Why are you sweating?
Wipe it. l’m leaving for
London tomorrow. Why not we talk? People here think the
boys from abroad… … exploit girls here. That’s wrong.
l’m not one of them. True. l’ll go, speak to my dad and
then, talk to your brother. ls it okay? Leave me alone.
-Stop it. Stop being naughty and
do useful work. l want Santhosh Stop it. Listen to me. l’ll
talk to him.- l’ll kill myself. Listen to me. Stop it and mind the work. What happened is.. Brother, what do we do? Such
people shouldn’t be spared. They have the knack of
trapping rich boys. We will lose Santosh if
we are not careful. Let go off my hand. Mother is calling you. You have to go to jewellery
shop immediately. – Now! As the aunt, l’ve to present
bangles to the bride. l forgot about it.
Go get it. l know nothing
about selection. Take him along if you don’t
know. Here is the money. Let’s go. We have to be
back in time for wedding. Take your time but buy
good and expensive ones. Let’s go. You! Will you have tea? How old are you?
-20 years. You are too smart
for your age. Let’s go
go Who else is
there in your family? Just my brother and me. What does your brother do?
-Farming. Farming! – We’ve poultry and
cattle. We sell milk too. Did you take your brother’s
permission… … to attend this wedding? Yes. l won’t do anything
without telling my brother. Did you trap my son
with brother’s permission? Why are you quiet? What can she say?
Things have gone haywire. Aunty is scolding your
friend. Go, fast. l was impressed by your
participation in chores. But didn’t realise
your true character. Look at her innocent act!
-What an act! Why are you shouting at her? We are busy with wedding and… … she is busy with
attracting Santosh. Don’t say so.
Santosh liked her. Very intelligent of her!
-Uncle. Shut up. Let’s elders
take charge. – Father,…
-l said shut up. Go away if you have any
shame left. Go. Go and find someone else. See, l told you she
cannot stay away from me. Look at the tears
on seeing me. Don’t worry.
Your brother has come. Crying like a baby.
Stop crying. How are you, bride?
l’ve brought the saree. You will wear it
during the ceremony. Take it, dear. Greetings. You are
Lalita’s father, l presume. l saw you when l was a kid. l’ve brought you a silk ‘pancha’
lt’s woven in our village. What’s this, brother?
-Wait. What happened, dear? Even the brother
is like his sister! You are invited to
bless the married couple. Not try to trap rich boys. What are you saying!
-l don’t know your name. Don’t act innocent. Would your sister trap a
millionaire… … without your knowledge? l’ll kill you if you say
one more word about my sister. lf you know what
happened here… … you will beat up your
sister and take her away. Brother…… Don’t do it, brother. lt’s your mistake and
show temper on others! You are after all a farmer. Not deserve even to be
our labour. You people aim for my son! Get out of here.
-She said get out. She has done enough dirty
work. Take her away. Let’s go away, sister. Forgive me, brother. l consider it as my
sister’s wedding. Don’t want to disturb it. Here, l’m leaving
with humility. Else l’d have taught a lesson
to all, one by one. Let’s go. Stop eating and keep the
bunch in the car. What is taking them so long?
-Here they come. Come on. Ladies doesn’t have
sense of time. Take care. Phone us up
when you reach. Let me say bye to Santosh.
-Do it fast. l’ve to tell you something
before l leave. You listen to your heart.
Nothing else. You think Sri left you. No.
She left behind her heart. Go, have a look in her room.
-lt’s time to leave, daughter. This horse is with me
since my childhood. lt’s precious to me.
lt has always been with me. What are you doing here?
Everyone is downstairs. Come. You proceed.
l’ll join you. We are leaving tomorrow.
Do you remember your promise? l do.
l remember. Everything went off smoothly
excepting for that girl’s… Forget it and watch there. What’s wrong?
Why are you so dull? Cannot you see us talk? Don’t think of her.
She came, she left. l’ll be with you, forever. Will you wait for me?
-Of course l do.- How long? Forever.
-Can you wait for 2 years? 10 years?
100 years? You cannot but Sri can. Sri isn’t a passing cloud.
lt’s you. You can forget it since
the hopes have crashed. Don’t take his
words seriously. Neither his father nor he
are decision makers. lt’s his mother.
She gave us her word. Your marriage with
him is sure. Brother told me what happened
there. Rich talk anything. They always blame others. Brother was humiliated
because of me. Yet, he never said
a word to me. You know him well. He will
feel bad if you are sad. Take my advice and
forget it all. That isn’t easy for me.
l love Santosh deeply. What! Santosh didn’t
catch the flight! He got on it and was
with me till Dubai. He didn’t take connecting
flight to London from there. He cheated me.
-Cheat you! Nonsense. lt’s love.
-Love!! O bird don’t fly away
but come back to nest Why do you throw tantrums? Why take my joke seriously? Take me with you,
l’ll come along l sent away all my hapiness
with my beloved Hope it is safe
and nothing to worry Wonder if she is happy
with my little taunts Has the girls mind become smaller? Oh sparrow! Be a messenger of
love and reach the message to her,, ,,in advance that her beloved is coming, Oh crow! Tell her, in detail,
all that have heard Yesterday l knew what is hunger!
And it has filled my stomach! Denied me food and asked me to go! Felt sleepy but
sleep didn’t bless me But has driven me away from coming closer! Love is magic Who would not give
when you ask for it? O love! You know it very well
Tell me who could overcome it How does the boy
you love look like? Shut up.
-ls he fair complexioned? He has no mustache and
hair is messy. Will it be like a lorry carrying bush? Are you the station master?
Who is he? Who are you?
You sit like a ticket less traveler? l have got the ticket! Feed the offerings
to the cow. Don’t trip on the plate.
Be careful. Go and complete the ritual. Your look makes me tense as it is!
Don’t know,how will it be if you’re angry? So you would say what l have to say! l only loved your sister!
l am Santhosh! What happened is. . .
Your sister is a nice girl. You raised her well.
She doesn’t even look at boys. lt took great efforts for me to lure her! l would have conveyed
this better in English! But you don’t know English My people shouldn’t have
said those things to you. You are justified in getting
angry and taking away Sri. l’m sorry for what they did. Have you finished? l wonder if l explained well
but this is what the matter is. Okay. Let’s go. Should you take him inside now? What is this sir?
We want to talk something in private You come He is inviting trouble. l had different opinion of you
But you are a gentleman! Why is it so calm? lt is always calm
before a storm. This is what l meant! Dump him outside the village. This isn’t your problem
but your sister’s. Throwing him out
isn’t the solution. A girl cannot feel free with
brother about everything. She could have told her
mother if she had. Think about it! l did this because l was
reminded of mother! l cannot forget the day
my father threw bundles of… … money at my mother’s face. lt broke my mother’s
heart and she died. No, l don’t want these rich people They change fast l don’t mind my sister
suffer today but… … l don’t want her face
my mother’s fate tomorrow. -But..
-No, sir -He had come for his bag
-No, l came back for Sri No, don’t Please, don’t separate us l love her more than you do l’ve ignored my parents
and everything for her Tell me, what should l
do to prove my love Ask him to leave Even a person to be hanged
is granted a wish. -But you.. -Can’t you understand
what is told? Why do you rage madly?
Your sister reminds you of your mother. This boy reminds me
of you, as an youngster. Just like this.. you had asked me
Don’t you remember? Had l not given you a chance
you wouldn’t be here ls it fair if you refuse to him? Dear, is it enough if you alone
choose your partner.. -..or you need opinion?
-You should also approve Tell me what to do
to convince you? Will you do anything?
-l’ll. You have to work in the fields. l’ll give you an
acre of my land. You must produce as much as
l produce. Can you? You must milk the cows,
clean the sheds. Take care of cattle
and poultry. How can he do that?
-He has to do. Just leaving the
parents isn’t enough. He has to lead a farmer’s life
which his mother scorned at…. … if he wants to marry
the girl of this household. l will prove myself l’ll do whatever you said l’ll produce more
than you do. ..then only he’ll know that
l love Sri more than him This is not like working in computers
This is hard work Falling in love was easy Let me work hard to prove it lf you fail you’ve to
forget my sister.. ..and leave the village You should sleep here l’ll wake you up at dawn A grand welcome! Get up! You! l slept late
because of the stink. -Do you want coffee?
-Boost Go and have it What boy, was the boost good? Go and clean the cowshed He is trapped in net
for the sake of love Poor boy!
Oh poor boy! Oh God! lgnorant of the troubles that love has.. l think l had pressed the wrong button ..the rich boy is in agony This is the field you
have to tilt. -Plough it
-Where is the tractor? No tractors. You have to
tilt without that. But how? – Like this. Brother, look at him. l thought he will survive
a few days but no. -Eat it.
-lt’s pungent. Go back by the 1st train
tomorrow. Why suffer like this? He looks like a mad guy Even tomorrow l’ll eat the same -Are you leaving by the morning train?
-Not even by the evening train. Earlier for the proposal,
he said his sister is yet to come.. -Now, he might ask us to wait till
this fellow leaves -You go and ask -What should he ask?
-Did you see that boy? He is strong like Ongole’s bull
lf he wins, you’re doomed You messed with her in the fair.
She is hitting you back. Come Where is Shivaramakrishnan’s house here? -Where are you from?
-London -London? How are you related to that boy
who is doing odd jobs for him? -ls my son doing farm labour?
-ls he your son? Wait, l’ve to tell you a lot about him -ls anyone home?
-Who is it? This is the girl Why are you staring? Didn’t you catch
a fish with a bait? l’m the father of
the fish you netted. Don’t look at me like an owl. -Call your brother
-Who is it, dear? -Are you Shivaramakrishna?
-Yes Do you know who am l?
Santhosh’s father Have you come for your son? No, l came to say hello to you
‘and offer you sweets They don’t even know
what is hospitality. Your company deprived him the
respect he deserves. l don’t need your hospitality.
Anyway do you know the meaning of it? You make my son
work as a labour! He is the son of one of the
top 500 millionaires of London. So? – Nothing.
Watch me take back my son. Take him. Then, why did you keep him
this long? Control your tongue. l kept quiet that day
as it was your home ground. This is my home ground. You will die if you
don’t behave yourself. Are you threatening! He can
throw money and bring police. You will be put behind bars. You have to call police but… …l can kill you right where
you are standing now. Want to kill?
Come on, kill me. What’s all this? Why did you come here? He came all the way from London
for you and you ask him why! Your condition makes me cry. l’ve to talk to my son.
You people may leave. How can you spoil your
future for a girl? Let’s go back to London. You used to consider
me your friend. You should help me if
you are my close friend. He is right, uncle. Why didn’t you
leave with them? He is your only son but
my only friend too. Let me ask you as a father.
What if you lose? l never thought of it.
How could you? What if you lose? You are sitting on the well.
What if you fall in the well? l’ve support to prevent it. l won’t lose because l’ve
my love for support. Love drove you crazy. Have l ever said you
are money crazy? Well said. What did you understand? l just wanted to know. Everyone here talks more
intelligently than me-Take it. l don’t understand
the way you live. You leave luxuries and
live on this food? One is born with his
fate already written. One should enjoy it
while it lasted. ls he listening?
-l think so. Some people work all
the time like machines. Earn millions and consider
themselves lucky. They don’t realise love is
the most worthy possession. Life is over by the
time they realise it. Do you want him repeat it? l hear big talk of love. Does all this drudgery prove
the power of love? Can we do it?
Eating it is no big deal. Want me to eat it?
Why do you flaunt? l think he is burning inside. Should l bring water
to drink. – Get it! Water… – There is
no water in the car. How could you eat it!
lt will kill you. You are not used to it. How can you endure anything
for love sake? Does love really have
so much power? lf not, l wouldn’t have
come here all the way. Neither you would have
come for me. They will accept his
love someday. l won’t accept. l love my son for foregoing
everything for a girl. But l don’t like the girl who
lives in comfort like a queen. l cannot accept it.
-You are wrong. Who are you?
-Not a rich man like you. l’m a station master
at a small railway station. You are pained for your son
suffering in the name of love. But that girl is
eating the same food. Yes, sir. She even sleeps on
the floor as your son does so. She is virtually living a
life that of a servant. Do you think it is old
fashioned? lndeed it is. She is old fashioned hence
prays to God for his success. Keep it burning, dear. My son Santosh, lived a
luxurious life. He didn’t know what
is hard work. l raised him so. Smell of mud on him
angered me. Now l realized l’m standing
on the soil of my motherland,.. … which l have forgotten
long back. Your love made my son and me
realise the value of it. Bye. Your decision isn’t right.
My sister won’t accept it. lt will create problems
between you both. – Yes. l don’t want problems
because of me. Don’t worry.
l know her weakness. She easily gets influenced
by worthless people. l’m going back to London
l know how to convince her. What’s happening?
Come here. What about her? l announced her wedding because
of your sister’s promise. Now, people are eager to
know when is the wedding. What will happen to her life
now? Look at her condition. Stop it. My sister won’t easily
believe her husband. Your worry is Santosh
marrying that girl. For that he has to
win the challenge. Shivaram doesn’t want
him to win. He will surely lose it.
-Say it again! He would definitely lose. The blowing, high
and strong wind ,,,is showing what is love The showers pouring
in response to it, is love Love is what keeps us alive Love is in the drizzle
that makes seedlings grow Love is what that fills
your life with colours, l see seeds grow in others
fields but none in mine, Even my field seeds have grown No one can tell when the
life begins in us No one knows when the love
is sparked in one’s heart Even if there is a word
to define love,,, ,,,that word itself doesn’t
know it does so Love is, pouring out poetry
without even knowing alphabets A river doesn’t know it’s
own force while it flows The sapling doesn’t know its ability
of yielding a crop, The soil doesn’t know its ability
of giving life to plants But the abundant crop is
evident to the toil that went into it, lf the toil results in bringing
one’s beloved close, it’s victory One gets blessed with love
when he deserves Journey of life would be easy
if one has a companion Life would be fulfilling when
one has someone to cry for him Driver, let’s move. Sister, we have trouble.
You are going to lose your son. That girl is sure to become
your daughter-in-law. l trust that you will
stand by your promise. What do l do now?
Why don’t you talk? Tell me what do l do? but l always fulfilled
my promise. lt will be the same this
time too. – l know. l don’t know what you do but… … she shouldn’t become
my daughter-in-law. l want my Santosh back. l wanted to hear it from you.
l’ll act now. Who is it? – lt’s me.
What are you doing? l’m making way for
water to drain out. Why? – To prevent damage to
crop by flooding due to rain. There won’t be any rain
because of this winds. Go. lt appears like it’s
going to rain. l’m a farmer for years.
Don’t l know when it rains? Narsima, do it in
our field too. No need. l did it already. You are getting wet.
l’ll handle it. Why did you sleep here?
-Why did l sleep here? l feel depressed. – let me
lift your moods. Your sister has passed in
1st class. – Really! Really.
-Sri…… Bless you.
Seek his blessings too. Like your brother blessed,
marry the boy you love… … and have a happy
married life. lt isn’t deliberate.
lt just came out of my mouth. Don’t get angry. l’d have gifted the railway
station had it been my daughter. What will you gift her? Ask what you want,
bangles or earrings? Go and ask
ask him What do you want? Shall we throw a
feast to all? Sure. Let’s invite
the entire village. Brother, can we invite
Santosh too? He is one of them.
lnvite him too. He agreed but hesitatingly.
Better be careful. Your brother is coming. Don’t feel shy. Serve me 2 more…. Do you
have to serve only 2? Let the buffalo go away to feed. l’m making the noise
not the buffalo He meant buffalo, not you. Mind the plate while serving. l must thank you.
-For what? l ate till l choked. You invited all so that
l can eat good food, right? Won’t you wish me
best of luck? You have passed in your exams.
l’ve to pass in mine. Greetings. My name is Rao. Villages all around are dead
scared of me. – l know. l checked the voters list…
and found that… … you are the worst kind
of rogue in the village. Do l have to kill someone?
-My daughter….Do l kill her? Listen. My daughter loves
someone. – Do l kill him? Cannot you keep
away from killing? l’ll kill you too
if you pay me. l found the right man.
Come with me. So, l’ve to ruin the crops. Tell me what to do.
-There is a new product. Use one liter, you get
good crop. Use 2 liters,
you get dead crop. Do it, do it. But no one
should find it out. l’ll ruin it.
Mix it fast. – Okay. You mix it you and
you pour it. My stomach is upset.
-Noise is coming from there. Let’s hide. Who is he?
-l don’t know too. He is here for the same
purpose like ours. Why do you make so much noise? What’s wrong with you all? Help… help. Don’t worry. Pour water from the tub. lt’s burning down. Go get more water. Get out, fast. Get out. Have you gone mad? What
if something went wrong? What is in that box? What is in that box? He has done a good job. He said he will finish me.
He did it. What are you thinking? You said l’m the
biggest crook. But l’m wondering who was
that bespectacled crook… … l saw in the fields. You do the thinking. l’ll get
my work done from Peddarao. lt was your stupid idea
to ruin the crop,. lt backfired. This time
l’ll suggest an idea. You hit me if it
didn’t work. Trust me. lt must be a good plan.
Do it. l’ll pay when the job is done. Sister…
Where have they gone? We cut the crop
and piled it up. We will separate
grains tomorrow. That will decide our fate. Are you tense?
l feel ‘something’. l bragged that l’ll produce… … one bag full more
than he does. l’ve been overconfident.
-A bit. Your brother is a nice guy. Tell him not to throw me
out from here if l fail. l’ll continue to be
a labour for him. l cannot leave this village,
the cattle, goats, etc. … and the angry looks
of your brother. This yield belongs
to this guy. Shift some of it
to Shivaram’s. That will defeat the guy. You have improved.
-l don’t need your praise. Get on the job. l forgot to feed the cows. That day you got
burns on your back. Today you got drenched.
What’s all is happening to you! Have you shifted the crop?
-l did. Shift more to be
on safer side. This should keep Santhosh
out of the picture. Why are so many
people going there? We should be eager,
about his work, not them. Entire village wants
that boy win. Let’s go and watch, father. One… Three Five. Why are you here instead
of weighing the grains? To wish for your victory
or the boy? ‘Archana’ is complete.
-l’m happy. l don’t know if he wins,
but he won your heart. He has to win the
challenge too. What? Won’t you get them
married if he loses? He won’t lose. He risked his life for the
toy my sister loves. My mother won’t forgive me
if he loses. So, l checked the quantity
of crop at dawn. l was doubtful of
the quantity. To make him win, l
transferred… … some of mine to his crop. You are not educated
but you are wise. Go and offer a coconut
for his victory. Sri,… l’ve won. How can l show my
face to my daughter? What do l answer to
my sister, in London? You ruined everything
with your dumb advice. My advice will be
followed this time. You see that it doesn’t
become a police case. Rotten coconut! l’ve won, My yield is more
by 2 bags, O Lord Ganesha, you are
the son of Lord Shiva Sri and Hari are
getting married Everyone hailed it Entire world is
dancing with joy The eye is fluttering Everything went well Joy is all around Happiness is mind blowing First time to get
real excitement Magic of love is
making the,,, Heart thump like
the dance of a peacock The youth is adding heat to it Beauty is inviting lt spreads fragrance Love brought the victory
and united the love birds Wishes are fulfilled and
the love resulted in marriage They reached the pandal,
The joy is overwhelming Let us enter into
the holy matrimony Let the holy hymns
be uttered What happens later is personal
People shouldn’t hear it Then there are now
obstacles between us, You come with me.
Get in. Let’s go. Who is that… Stop. Brother… Get down. l helped your brother a lot
since his childhood. He didn’t answer when l
asked for your hand for my son. So, l arranged for it
in my way. Son, tie the knot. Who are you?
-Get lost. You want to tie the knot? Do you think you can
live after that? Her brother will kill you
when he comes to know of it. Coming here and killing
isn’t that easy. Why not? Haven’t l come?
He will come too. Here he comes.
Madam, let’s run. They are running away.
Catch them. Come this way. Which way have they gone?
l hear some noise. Climb up. Where is she?
Where is she hiding? Master… Tell us. How dare you spit on me! No… Brother…
Let go off me. Give me the ‘Tali’. Go. Go. Spare me. Brother… Where are you going? -Brother.
-Tie the knot. – Brother… You are telling the truth a
day before your release? You always refused to meet
your people when they visited. l thought you are
a hardcore criminal. l never thought you
took punishment for… … the crime you
never committed. Your sacrifice won’t go waste.
Your dream will come true. As you wished, your sister
will be at the gate tomorrow… . . .with her 2 kids. They didn’t find an auspicious
time to get married till today. Your release is auspicious
time for them. They came to seek
your blessings. When l heard your story
l thought she is lucky… … to have a brother like you. But you are lucky to have
a sister like her. -Why l am not? l didn’t ask her to come.
She came on her own
