Halal (2016) - full transcript

This film is based on marriages in Muslim Community.


Father. Brother-in-law is coming

What did you say?

Brother-in-law has come

Why has he come after
everything is over?

What does he belong here now?

Is he not satisfied
ruining our lives?

I’m warning you. Do not take him in

Now, we don’t share
any relation with him

And yes, if he says anything wrong
then I will break his jaw

I’m warning you




shall I give you water?


Take it

What brings you here?

Is Halim there?
- Hmm..

I wanted to speak to
you something important

Tell me

I’ve come to take her away

You can’t take your wife back
after the 'talaq'(divorce)

Don't you know?

I know

But this is not the procedure of
divorce in our religion, right?

We can't divorce
our partner all of a sudden

Even if we want to,
it takes three months

We need to say 'Talaq' every month

That too in presence of the few
jury members of the society

Also need to return the token amount
taken during the marriage

I haven't done anything of that sort

So as per the religious practice,
we are still married

In that case,

why did you let my daughter
stay here for 2 years?

You know my condition

I couldn't say anything to mother

That time my mother was alive


When did this happen?
- Six months passed

Why didn't you inform us?
- Yes

Hatred is kept aside
during bad times

We would have at least
come for the last rites

Leave it

If I had come soon
after mother's death

it wouldn't look good

That's why I have come now

It would be better if
he had died earlier

Let it be, son-in-law

You must not use bad
words for the dead

Let bygone be bygone


See you

I want to settle down
with Halim again

Let me know your decision

I will come on next Friday



"God is great."


Do you listen to me?

Will smoking solve the problem?

What do we do now?

Don't make noise

We should think of
our daughter's betterment

It's no use digging the past

Son-in-law has personally come
to take her away. So let her go

Even her mother-in-law is no more.
She will live happily

Sister. Sister

What happened?

- Eat something


If you love her so much,
why did you leave her then?

Because of my mother.
Mother had made her life hell

With the daybreak,
mother would attack on her

with her abusive language

Everyone starts working
from early morning

But she's sitting idle over here

My bad luck

Idiot, are you dead?

Huh? Can't you work in speed?

Will you take so much
time making a cup of tea?

Do you hear me, you idiot?

Yes, mother, I'm giving you.
- Get it, fast

She had to marry my son only.
My bad luck

Give it

Are you going, son?
- Yes

Take your lunch box

Hey, lazy girl,
did you pack his lunch box?

Has he married you
for making you rest?

Will you let my son starve?

Hey, do you hear me?

Can't do a single job properly.
She makes her husband starve

and keeps eating the entire day.

He has left now.
Are you blind?


Every chores is late

Now will you keep me starving

So, what you wanted
has happened, right?

When will you get rid of this sin?


Are you brought here for
praising you all the time?

Or will your mother come
and do these chores?

Now, you will also
starve the entire day

I will break your bones
if you eat even a morsel

Don't cry, Halim

I can understand everything
but what do I do?

After all, she's my mother

I tried to explain her a lot of time

But everyone's nature is different.
What can we do in this?

Don't take her words seriously

Come. Let's eat

Don't vent your anger on food

Come on

See, even I won't eat
if you wouldn't eat






Bring water.
- Yes, I will

Hurry up


I will bring it.
- Are you deaf?

Have you died or what?


I'm calling out to you
from such a long time

Can't you hear?

What did you put in the water?

Want to kill me?

Are you blind?
- What have I done?

Will you argue with me? Will you?

Let me show you now

Tell her to die

You will kill her if she stays here

Nothing doing.
Now, I will end this matter

Our relation is over now

I'm divorcing you.
'Talaq'. 'Talaq'. 'Talaq'

Yes, defame me in the village

Make a scene of me in the village

My son's life is
ruined because of you

Go, don't come back.
You proved me bad in the society

Let's go.
- You proved me wrong

How will you pay this sin

Don't cry

Come here

Come, sit here


Don't cry

I'm not angry on you

You know that it is my mistake

But nothing is in my control

I'm not even thinking
of divorcing you

But I can't drive away
my mother from the house

People will spit on me if I do that

They will say that I've driven
away mother for my wife

If I drive you away
they will praise me

that I've driven out
my wife for my mother

See, if I really let you stay with
me she will kill you one day

Instead, you go home

You're fine there

Hey.. but I want to stay with you

She will kill you if you stay here.
So what do I do now?

You think I don't
want you in my life?

But if you stay here,

I don't want to take
the sin of killing you


Come with me



But now my mother is no more

Now, I there's no problem
if I bring her back

Even I can't live without her

She's my wife

2 years are more than enough.
- Yeah

With the daybreak this
man starts smoking

No financial support
at all from his side

How long I can run everything alone?

We have three daughters

But this man is least bothered

Things are getting difficult
to settle one daughter

Wonder what future has in store

What will happen? God is there

He will do good

Yes, God has heard our prayers.
Sister's mother-in-law died

Now, the king and the queen
will be all alone at home

Is that so?

Hey, sister will take
me along and not you

Isn't it?
- Yes, I will take you along

Take her. My burden will reduce

I will go with sister.
She won't take you

Get away

Halim can't go back


What did you say?

We can't send Halim back

This practice is not
followed in our religion

Don't talk nonsense. Are you mad?

Son-in-law had personally
come to take her away

Why can't we send her?

I've never seen this in my life

that one can take
back his divorced wife

This practice is not
there in our religion

But.. - A divorcee
can marry another man

But she can't return
to her first husband

I know this for sure

But son-in-law said
that even Quran doesn't accept

divorce given in anger

And he also didn't
return the token amount

Without returning the token amount
divorce is not legal

What does he know?

As if you know everything

As if you live life on God's saying

I'm telling you as much as I know

I've never seen a husband
who has returned the token amount

No one does this, these days

Once divorced, woman returns home

And rots all her life or remarries

And it is difficult to
get a husband second time

But a man does second marriage

And he even marries
an unmarried girl

Men after all, are a sly

Even if we wish to send her,
what will people say?

Our society will not accept this

Why are you concerned
about people's opinion?

Son-in-law himself had
come to take her away

We've two more daughters at home

I don't want to ruin
their lives for one daughter

What a life!

Its worst than a dog

Then what should we do now?

I don't know that

I will consult our priest

He will suggest a solution

You don't worry

We are going to meet priest


We will ask him.
Will find some way



- Salutations!

Come, sit. Sit

Well, we wanted to speak
to you about something

Yes, tell me

You know that Balu's daughter

is divorced 2 years ago


what has happened has happened

How long will you let her live alone?

Find a better match
and get her remarried

That's why I've come to you

Why? What has happened?

Balu's son-in-law had
come home yesterday

He was talking of taking away Halim

Is it?
- Hmm

I've never seen this in my life

that a woman has
returned to her husband


I've heard about it.
But I've never seen in my life

This is a totally new matter

But Balu, Quran has answers
to all the questions in life

Of this world as well
as the other world

But my son-in-law says that the way
he divorced her was not legal

And he also didn't
return the token amount

The boy is correct

According to the holy Quran, it is
illegal to divorce someone like this

It is wrong

Three month's time is
given to divorce anyone

Every month,
in presence of the jury members

one has to declare his divorce

But these days, it has become the
trend of divorcing wife in this way

People don't follow
what is said in Hadith

They twist and turn it
as their requirement

If your son-in-law knew this

then why did
he divorce her in this way?

He said he was angry at that time

And his anger calmed down after
divorcing his wife, right?

Let bygone be bygone

Now you tell me what I should do now

Let me tell you, Balu

In such a situation,
Holy Quran says that..

Halim can't marry Kuddus so easily

Meaning? I didn't understand

Hadith prescribes a proper tradition
to be followed by every Muslims

It is called 'Halala' (legitimate)


According to this, if
your son-in-law wants to take away

Halim to his house,

he will have to remarry Halim

But before that your daughter
must marry another man

That man can divorce her

only after her 'Iddat'
(waiting period) is over

If she turned out to be pregnant

then that man can divorce her only
after she gives birth to a child

And only after that

Kuddus can remarry Halim

Doing anything against
this rule is illegal..

as per the religious practice

Isn't there any other
solution to this?



This rule is made for those men..

who consider women their slave,
or use them

This rule is made to
bring them down to earth

Come to me without hesitation
if you need any help

It's our duty to unite the lovers

Kuddus and Halim's
marriage will become

an example in the village

- Bye

"God is great."

What rule is this?

Son-in-law is ready to take her away

But this is something new now

It's nothing new.
It's mentioned in our religion

We must follow it

But are you convinced with it?

Can't we think of any other solution?

It is mentioned in the Quran
that is followed everywhere

Even the priest said
there's no other solution

- Don't get on my nerves

This is a custom

If we want to send
our daughter back

then we must follow it

I had never heard of such a thing.
Is it really possible?

I also heard it for the first time

In our religion,
a woman can easily go back to

her in-law's house
even if she has stayed

at her maternal house
for 2 or more years

And this second marriage in
your religion is totally strange

This is a rule in our religion.
We can't change it

This rule is made to
punish a husband

who leaves woman
anytime on his will

Now, he must pay for it

Tell me one thing. If this rule
is made to punish a husband

then how's he suffering in this?

Woman has to suffer by getting
married to another man


Mother, I'm going. Yes


Hello, chief.
- Hello. How are you?

You seem to be in a hurry today

Yes, Balu's daughter's
matter needs to be resolved

I'm going there.
- It's a big problem in a way

He should have quietly sent his
daughter but started with all this

Now, this is a custom
in their religion

So one must follow it.
- Yes

And when their priest has said,

we can't avoid him.
- That's true

I will go there, okay?
- Yes. Okay


Vanna, bring some water

Feeling very thirsty

When is son-in-law coming?

How do I know?

You've informed everyone else, right?

Even they haven't come as yet

Why should I call them
unless the son-in-law arrives?

Why waste on tea?

Let the son-in-law come.
Then we will call them

- Salutations


Give him water



Sit, I will come in a moment.
Make some tea for him. - Yes

Take it.
- Take it

Okay, son-in-law,
it's good if everything is followed

as per the customs and religions

- Yes

I never deny

I'm here for that

I just want to take Halim back

You want to take her away, right?
Okay then

Follow the religious customs

Take her away and live happily

Yes, but I didn't understand

What do you mean by
religious customs?

What's the religious custom?

Son-in-law, as per the rule if
you want to take back Halim

then you must marry her again

But before that Halim
should marry someone else

and when he divorces her,

you can remarry Halim
and live with her

Otherwise, you cannot

You all know our financial condition

I can't afford the second
marriage of one daughter


I still have two more daughters

Balu, everyone's fate is with him

If it is about
your daughter's betterment

then God is there

Why do you worry?

You tell us what do we do now

What will I say?
Whatever son-in-law says

I want to take Halim back

But don't you think this rule of
marrying another man is strange?

How can anyone marry off
his wife with someone else?

Look, son-in-law

After you divorced her,
now she's not your wife

You will divorce a woman
anytime you wish to

Then what should that woman do?

What is her fault?

No one should do this
in life that's why..

this rule is made in our religion

so as to punish the man

I didn't know this rule

Now, you understood it, right?

So, now decide what to do

I can't understand
these religious rules

You can't, right?
Then don't worry

Rest assured and do as we say

Tell me one thing,
you love Halim, right?

You can do anything for her, right?

You want to take her away, right?

Then do as I say

Let everything happen
as per the religious way

We will get Halim married
to someone temporarily

And then we will tell
him to divorce her

Once, she is divorced
we will get you both remarried

Then live happily

What say?
- Yes

So, what do you think about this,

I need to ask
the priest from our village

Look, son-in-law

Whether it is said by priest of
this village or that village

The rules mentioned
in Quran don't change

Every Muslim all over the world
has to follow the same rules

It doesn't change anywhere.


Let him ask. For his satisfaction

Right, son-in-law?

Yes, let's go

let me say this as I'm elder to you

Now, that you've stepped
further don't step back

It's lucky to get a wife like Halim

Don't desert her now

Look, God has made rules
for our betterment

You love her, right?
You want her, right?

Then we must follow
the rules... The religious customs

Besides all of us are there with you.
Don't worry

And Balu,
don't worry about the money

Don't let your daughter stay
at home for money constraints

I'm there. I will help you

And you're lucky to get
such a good son-in-law

Don't let him go.
- Yes

Everything will happen
as per God's wish

Okay? See you

- Bye

We must help him after all.
- Bye


Who else will otherwise help him?
- That's why I was telling

Did you ask Halim?

What's to ask her?

She's a girl.
What does she understand in this?

She will do what we say

Still I think we should ask Halim

What do I say?

You ask her



Come out

What do you think? What should we do?

What do I say?

Whatever you decide

Have you thought over this?

I don't understand anything else

I just want to live with you

Alright then

Then even I'm ready

You look for a boy

And let everything happen
as per the religious rules

Once he divorces Halim
I will remarry her

See you



So, what is decided, Pasha?

About what?

Marrying Balu's daughter

Are you mad? You're talking anything

Why? What happened?

You will get such a good wife
like Halim for three months

You're getting
an opportunity and you.

So you take this opportunity.
Why do you tell me?

I already have one.
I can't afford to spend after her

But you have the options to
manage with more than one

Think over it

You will not have to
spend much on her

It's so strange!

Halim's husband has agreed to
marry her off with another man

Is he not ashamed?

Such different things are
happening in our village

What's different in this?
- It is

This is in their religion

But that son-in-law is quite strange

He's ready to let her
marry another man

It is really lucky to get
such a husband in this time

He loves her a lot

That's true. Halim is really lucky

It is her 2 years penance

May she be blessed!

Hope she gets a good
husband this time

Yes. - Otherwise,
if he wouldn't divorce her then..

They will consider this point
before marrying her off

It's not that.
- Then?

Halim is beautiful.
- Yes

And it doesn't take time for
a man to change from his word



I hope she gets a gentleman



What do you think?

Will everything be fine?

I find it really very strange

But brother-in-law loves you a lot

He's very good

He can do anything for me

We can see that


He had divorced me for my sake only

He couldn't see my plight

But this rule, your second marriage?

Are you ready for all this?

Now, I can't see him in pain

If he wanted,
he would have remarried by now

But he didn't do that

You're right

Now, even
your mother-in-law is no more

You can live happily with him

But I can't understand
about this rule

Leave it

The elderly people are there

They will decide

Whatever is God's wish

Now, go to sleep

That's true

We can say anything

But brother-in-law is a good man

I wish you get someone
like him again

We will find another boy?

But marry her with him

And then remarry her with son-in-law

How will we manage?

Our two daughters are
yet to be married off

How do we arrange for
such a big amount?

People will help us but how much?

And how do we repay them?

We haven't repaid the loan taken
for Halim's first marriage

If we have to go on repaying
the loans what do we eat?

We will die in this struggle

My mind is totally blank now

God only knows how many
generations will die in this way

Wonder why poor has
to suffer so much?

For which of our sin
God is punishing us?

What life is this?

Just go on working from
morning till evening

Why are you so tired?

My mother-in-law.
She's a headache

Take it as your fate.
You have to tolerate her

That's true

One should be lucky
enough like Halim

And husband should be like Kuddus

Leave her with her parents
until his mother is alive

And take her back
after mother's death

But before returning to him
she has to marry another man

Will you go?
- Not at all

Go, you will get some change.
- Shut up

What happened now?

You have spoken with them, right?

I did a big mistake
by divorcing Halim

My wife and..

But this is a rule in your religion

It's not in your hand.
- You're right

Someone will marry
your wife temporarily

Can't tolerate

You're left with no choice.
- I agree

But what if the man
she marries doesn't divorce her?

His intention can change
after seeing Halim

What do I do if
he doesn't divorce her?

Don't think nonsense.
Everything will be fine

And we will discuss about all
this before fixing alliance

It's not a big problem

If he doesn't divorce her,
even Halim can ask for the divorce

Then what's the problem?

And what if Halim also
didn't divorce him?

Are you mad? She loves you a lot

Even I love her a lot

But my mind is getting blank

You both love each other a lot.
God can see that

Everything will be fine

But I can't even find
a temporary husband for her

It feels good if he doesn't but then
I feel why can't I find any

Don't understand anything

Chief, I'm convinced
with what you say

We don't have any other option

We will see what happens next

If all of you are convinced then..

It's not a big issue.
I will speak to him


Yes, come Balu. Come

- Hello

Balu, chief's opinion
is worth pondering over

As you say

My mind has stopped working

I'm already indebted with
one daughter's marriage

Now, I've to marry her off twice

And I've two more daughters

You've started with it again

We promised to help you. Right?

We will also make
your son-in-law help in this

But... - Balu,
at least listen to what chief says

Speak up

What I mean to say is
that we are looking for a boy

But can't find
a suitable match. Right?

So, I thought over it a lot
and came to a conclusion

So I called all of
them for their advise

You give your opinion

Now, let's not look for
a boy here and there

In present circumstances

I see only one man
in front of my eyes

And he's our priest


What say?

We will ask him

If all of you agree we will
go to him and request him

I will speak to him

And if he agrees
everything will be fine

As you say

If that gentlemen agrees

then my daughter will have
a better life. - Yes

Thank you

Chief, you look after what to do

Yes, I will speak to him

- Salutations

Come, sit

Sit, chief.
- Yes

- Salutations



So, Balu,

did you find a groom?

Don't feel dejected

God is merciful. Have faith in Him

Priest. We've faith in Him
that's why we've come to you

Now, only you can do something

Yes, chief, I've sent information
to the nearby villages

We will get a match

I wanted to tell you
something different

Tell me, without hesitation

When you all have come together..

I understood
that the matter is different

Look, I will do anything I can.
Tell me

Only you can do this

I didn't get you

Chief, you tell him

Well... What... what do I say..

You see how it is, priest?

That even after so many efforts

we couldn't find a better match

And even if we find
any in a day or two

We can't trust this young generation

What if he refuse to
divorce after marriage?

So, we thought that..

you help us in this

See, everyone in
the village wants to unite them

And can we find a noble
man like you in this world?

So, we suggest

that you marry Halim

You lost the girl

I had told you to marry her

Now, sit and complain

Leave it. Why would anyone
take the burden on head?

Idiot. You'd have got
some fame in this way

For helping someone. What say?

Yes, of course

See, the priest is getting
praised everywhere

And look at you

Useless fellow. Remained useless

Leave it.
- Yes

Anyway you wouldn't be
able to do anything

Don't talk nonsense

Let me get married
once then you will see

Hey, who will give
you a girl like Halim?

Had you married her...
- What do you mean?

I will marry in this year only that
too with a better girl than Halim

Okay? And permanent

Otherwise, I will change my name

Alright then

Think of another name

Sister. Hey, sister

Where are you lost?
- Nowhere

Now, we will alone
have to stitch quilt

Come, brother-in-law. Sit. Come, sit

Brother-in-law. Are you sure you
are going to take away my sister?

- No, even I wanted to come

Shall I come?


I will just come. You continue talk

But I want to come.
- So, come

After all, you're my sister-in-law


I was very scared.
- Why?

I thought if anyone else had agreed..

he would not have
left a wife like you

Then what would I have done?

But priest is a kind man

We will unite through that holy man

We will come together again

Don't worry

Why are you crying?

Don't worry. Everything will be fine

But how can I share a bed with
someone else other than you?

I want to live with you only

Can't we do anything else?

Go. Show this to girl
and ask her if she agrees

Mois, Son of Abdul Salam Ansari..

is getting married to you

You're getting Rs.151 cash

Do you accept him?


I accept him

Do you accept him?


I accept him

Do you accept him?


I accept him

Sheikh Balu, son of Akhar

has given his daughter Halim

to you in marriage,
in presence of the witnesses

Do you accept her?

Say that I accept. I agree

I've accepted and I agree

Her and her token amount

Her and her token amount

I accept and I agree

I accept and I agree



I can understand your situation

But let me tell you
that I've done all this

for your and Kuddus' betterment

To reunite the two of you..

I've married you as per the rules

And now,
we will have to follow this rule

As per the rule of 'Halal',
as a husband

I will have to spend at
least a night with you

Only then you will be able
to marry Kuddus again

as per the rules of Quran

And let me tell you..

I'm a strict follower
of Quran's rules

So, it is my duty that with you,
I must..

Come, aunt. I'm going.
Halim is sleeping

Priest, at least take some tea.
I will make it right away

No, aunt.
Serve tea to Halim when she wakes up

I'm going

Kuddus, are you going?
- Yes. I'm quite late

Now, only three months.
Then you won't get late


everything will
happen in time, right?

Look at his face. He's blushing.
- Yes, he is

Okay, I'm getting late. Bye

Why don't you get serious in life?

By God's grace,
your one daughter has

met with good fortune.
But we've two more daughters

We've to think about them

How long I shall drag
things all alone?

Why do you prate so much? Go

I'm there. Don't worry

I'm somehow running the house doing
household chores for people

Had I been depending on you
I'd be starving to death

Telling me not to worry

Child, finish everything quickly

Today we must supply
a quilt to Sharaja

Now, you're alone to do it,
okay? - Yes

Child, finish it fast and help her.
I am going

Whatever you say, but Priest has
given a push to Halim's life

Yes, you're right

Otherwise, she had no future

She'd have died single

And what would Balu do?

He has three daughters.
He's already lost in life

What will he do now?

Talk in simple language

He's always talking in
his profession's language

Look, my life has
passed in this shop

And I will die working here

So, people like if I use
my profession's language

No one will come to uplift me

I'm not that lucky

One should be lucky like Kuddus.
- Yes

He will get his once
divorced wife back. - Yes

What if someone else had
married her in this time?

Balu had another daughter then

Done repairing.
- What?

Your punctured wheel is repaired

Look, child. You're like my daughter

So, I will tell you something

But don't feel offended

Woman has to endure all this in life

But you're lucky that this
gentleman has supported you

He's a very kind person.
He's a man of religion

He will never be unjust to you

I know him from a long time

Such people are rare to find

Don't think of anything

Whatever is happening
is for your good

If you make your mind
strong and endure a little

you will have a bright future

A month has passed to
your daughter's marriage, right?

- Any news about her?

Not yet. Even her father
didn't go to the mosque

ever since her marriage.
He will go tomorrow

Then we will know.
- Everything will be fine

Priest is a kind person.
He's a man of religion

Yes. He's a gentleman

Hold it properly

Can't you hold it properly?
Where's your attention?

I can't hold it. Call sister

Are you missing sister?

Shall we go to sister?

We will ask mother

Come, let's finish the work.
- Yes

Priest. Everything is fine

Thank God

God is merciful!

Son-in-law, you're lucky

Shall we proceed now?


Aunt, bring Halim out


In presence of the jury members

and in my complete sense..

I give you the first
'Talaq' (divorce)

Give me flatbread

It is God's grace
that everything is going on smoothly

Girl is really lucky

Mother we miss sister a lot

Even I miss her

But they say she's keeping good

Mother, shall Sahida and I go to her?
- Yes, mother

Even I don't like. Shall we go?

Yes. Let the girls go

She will also feel better

And we will know
about her well being

When should we go?

The quilt stitching work is pending

Complete it and then go

Priest has given the first 'talaq'

Is everything else alright?
- Yes

I also met Halim

You're lucky to get such a good wife

These days no woman
tolerates so much

And anyone else wouldn't
agree for all this

That's why I'm ready
to do anything for her

Only 2 months

Let her tolerate for 2 months

Then see how I make her happy



The food is just like you


Kuddus is lucky

What's this?

Why aren't you eating?

You also eat with me.
Come on, take your plate

No, you eat. I will eat later

I will feel good if you eat with me

It seems you've brought new cooker

You really care about your wife

It seems you've started
preparing for your new life

No, it's nothing like that

Actually, I didn't have it at home.
That's why.

What's the use even if you had any?

Who was there to cook at home?

But now your wife will
come so you must bring it

So, when will you bring your wife?
- In a month or two

Don't worry. Everything will be fine


Hey... bring something
to arrange the utensils

Okay, I will

Today you came early
in the afternoon

But I've yet not cooked food

And what's this?

Check it. It's for you

For me?

Did you like it?


What must be my daughter doing?

So many days have passed
but I haven't seen her

Mother, all the works are over

You had told us to go
once we finish this work

Yes. Before we take up another job,
you go

Seriously, mother?
- Yes

Go tomorrow

I will cook mutton for her

Give it to her

She loves it

- Sister

- Sister

How are you?
- I'm fine. How are you?

Come inside. Sit


Sister, we miss you a lot

What are you looking at?

- Yes

You look very beautiful.
- Yes

You have also put on. Brother-in-law
will get mad to see you

Leave it. How's mother?

She misses you and cries at times

She has also made mutton for you

Why did you spend so much?

I get everything here.
He brings me anything I want

The house is really good.
- Yes

Everything is properly arranged

I've made it.
Looks nice, isn't it? - Yes

- Yes

Brother-in-law had come.
He gave me sweets

He was asking about you

Brother-in-law said he has bought

all the kitchen accessories
and clothes for you

See this. He brought this
saree for me. How's it?

It's very pretty

He's very intelligent

And good too. He knows
everything about our religion

People come from long
distance to take his advice

And he thinks of
everyone's betterment

That's why he is doing
all this so that

you and brother-in-law
can live happily

such people are never found. - Yes

Even if I make a mistake,
he never complains

Sister, you're very lucky

Even your temporary
husband is so good

But brother-in-law I also very good

Come on, get fresh. Come

What happened?

Tomorrow, people will come

I will give you
a second 'Talaq' tomorrow

I'm scared..

if you've conceived due to me

This should not happen

Nothing such will happen

Everything is alright


Your menses?

Thank God

Priest, everything is fine

Bring Halim out.
- Yes

Girl has put on weight.
Seems well settled

What say, Balu?

Priest. Start with your procedure

Halim. In presence
of the jury members..

and in my complete sense..

I give you the second
'Talaq' (divorce)

- Bye

- Bye

- Bye

Only one month remain

Thanks, priest

Everything is going on
smoothly all because of you

I don't understand how
to repay your favours

Balu, this is God's wish.
I'm just His child

I follow the path He has shown.
That's it


- Bye

The second 'talaq' is given
to Balu's daughter today

Yes. But I still don't
understand one thing

How come she has still not
conceived even after 2 months?

Priest is a gentleman

They must not have
crossed their limits

If that happens then
the rule will not be followed


There's a condition in our rule

They must consummate in marriage

But Priest strictly
follows religious rules

Still the result is zero?

It is strange.
- Strange?

It's nothing like that

I think Halim has some flaws in her

She lived with her
husband for a year

Still she never conceived

It's good.
The divorce will happen easily

without any hurdle

But if this is true
then what's the use of

Kuddus marrying Halim?

First of all,
marry a non-virgin girl

Moreover, she will not conceive

Then why is he so desperate?

Even this is true

That's okay.
But you know what I feel?

Shall I tell you?
- Yes

What if the priest
wouldn't divorce her?

Are you mad?

Why do you talk nonsense?

Will this be possible?

Look, the priest is a gentleman

No matter what
but he will keep his word. - Yes

But what if he will not?

Why are you defaming that gentleman?

Oh... you're getting very excited

Take for instance,
if the priest wouldn't divorce her

then what will you do?

Idiot, jinx

He never speak good about anyone

Hey, why do you fight?

They are enjoying
and you people are jealous

Look at this idiot.
- You're an idiot

Let the priest not divorce
her and then I will see you

Look at his behavior.
- Leave it

No. Priest should divorce her

Do not divorce me

I can't live without you

Don't think like that

Even I've started liking you but..

I had already told you

that I strictly
follow religious rules

I teach people to follow this path

I can't do this

But I can't live without you

Look, Halim

Don't say this

This is a crime

From past 3 months

I'm claiming my right
of a husband on you

Now, if your menses stops
and if you conceive..

then there will be a problem

Kuddus' dreams will shatter

He's a kind hearted person

I can't betray him

I can't betray your father

The entire village is looking at us

I've married you so that people
would follow the path

suggested in Islam

If I do this, then..

people will lose their faith

It's better..

that your menses starts

The 'iddat' (waiting)
period passes safely


once again..

you settle down with Kuddus

You're so learned

People listen to you

You explain them

Please, do something

See, this is queen. Queen of king

Take it

But the sir is taking away the queen.
What about that?


This time the priest
will belong to the queen

Are you mad?
- Mad?

This time Halim will conceive
and she will belong to

priest and not the king

- Impossible?

Take my word

Do you bet?
- Done

I bet for 100 Rs

If Halim conceives,
you will give me Rs.200

Even I bet Rs.100

If she wouldn't conceive
then you will give me Rs.300

Keep the money ready

I will see to it
how she wouldn't conceive



Hey, open the door.
Give water to son-in-law

- No, no need of water

Come on, we've to go.
It's getting late. - Yes

Let's go.
Sahida, come here

You love sweets, right?
- Yes

I've brought it for you

You eat it since childhood, right?

- Salutations

- Salutations


- Sit


Is everything alright?
- Everything is fine

So, bring Halim out


Priest, everything has
gone smoothly till date

So, let's proceed



In presence of the jury members..

and in my complete sense..


I request you. Don't divorce me

Don't divorce me

Hey.. hey,
what are you saying, child?

What else do I say, uncle?
You tell me

You people have made a toy of me

A toy

One is satisfied,
the second one can use

and if done with the second one,
return to the first one

Do I have a personal identity or not?

I'm getting stifled in your rules

You people can't think
of anything beyond this

Child, what are you blabbering?

Are you out of your mind?

Not me, but all of you
are out of your mind

You're my mother

You're my mother

You should have known my plight

But no

And what could you have done?

After all, you're also a woman

No one would have listened to you

And all of you

You think you all are
very smart, right?

But has anyone ever thought
about how I must have felt?

Has anyone ever thought of it?

Child, all this is happening
as per the religious rules

And we're doing this
for your happiness

What happiness, uncle? Tell me

If I had eloped with someone

you people would have killed me

You all are doing the same even now

You people have killed my conscience

You people have killed my conscience

What nonsense are you blabbering?

We all have come here for you.
For your betterment

Yes, they have.
All of them have come

But they've come for
the entertainment

No one has guts to stand against it

and say that this is wrong

My father got me married
for the first time

He didn't ask for my opinion

My husband divorced me

He didn't ask for my opinion

All of you..

All of you got me remarried

But no one asked for my opinion

Now, even he's ready to divorce me

Even he didn't ask for my opinion

And now all of you want to get
me married for the third time

No one asked for my opinion

Hey... don't do this

Don't do this

Has anyone thought about
how I must be feeling?

My mind is already been raped

Hey, girl, it's not like that

It's already raped...
- It's nothing like that

Control yourself

Control yourself

Look, this poor fellow is
doing everything for your love

This is going on for you

He had come to take me away. Right?

If he had strongly
opposed everything

and taken me away,
he'd be a true man

Even he joined hands with you

Are you convinced
with all this, uncle?

Tell me.
- No

I am not convinced

If it was my daughter,
I'd have sent her with her husband

happily and blessed
her for a happy life

But this is your religious rule.
We can't do anything in this

And what's the use if
I'm convinced or not

It is a religious matter

Can we interfere in each
other religious matters?

Take the name of religion and escape


All of you will keep quiet

But stand up for
the sake of humanity

Can't you think injustice
is happening with me?

I beg of you

Don't do this

Don't be so atrocious to
your daughters and mothers

Don't do it

Don't do it

Look, chief

This is her side of the story

Of course, she is correct

But we must do our duty

Priest has given his words

So only Kuddus have right on Halim

Priest, you follow
the rule and divorce her


In my complete sense..

and in presence of
the jury members

I give you final..

If you divorce Halim..

then also I will not marry her

What are you saying, son-in-law?

Why are you taking her seriously?

She's naïve

Not she..

but we're naïve

I'm naïve

I divorced my wife in anger

This rule is made in our religion..

to punish a husband like me

who divorces his wife any
moment without a reason

Then why Halim should suffer
from my part of the punishment?

And where am I going through
the punishment in all this?

But now I must go through it

I will go through it

I request you, priest

Don't divorce Halim

Her happiness is in your hands now


I will not let you
suffer for my mistakes

Forgive me
