103.. The fever is increasing.

Call for these medicines
and injections.

The child's condition
is critical. - Doctor.

As soon as the medicines are here
bring the child to my clinic.

I'll be there till 12 o'clock.

These medicines
are very necessary.

Mother.. Mother.. - My child.

Mother.. - I'm here, my child.

Sir. - Do you want
to leave the job?

No, no, Sir. Please forgive me.
My child is unwell.

That is why I could not come.
His life is in danger.

I need some money.

I have to buy
medicines immediately..

...and take him to the doctor.

You haven't come to work for
two days and over..

... and above that,
you ask for money?

I beg of you, Sir.
Please forgive me.

Deduct it from my salary.
I will never forget this favor.

Look, Janaki.
This is a world of give and take.

I'll help you.
What will you do for me?

I!? - Yes, you.

You want money? I have plenty.

And what I want,
you have it in plenty.




I have wanted to tell you
for the past three days.

I got a chance only today.
You make me happy

... and you can turn into
a queen from a servant.


Your child's life
is in danger. Take this.

Do you understand
why I am helping you?

Today evening,
at exactly 5 o'clock,

... my driver will come to
pick you up. Be ready.

And listen.

So far, no one has
betrayed me and got away.

Let him sleep in peace.
Now, there is no worry.

The fever is down. This is the
beneficial effect of medicines.

Munna will be absolutely
fine in few days.

All right. May I leave?
- Namaste, doctor.

My son. My Munna.
My love is fine now.

Absolutely fine,
aren't you, son?

Master has sent me.

He is waiting downstairs.


You go. I'll get ready and
be there in a little while.

She is coming.


Child. I am near you, son.
Go to sleep. I am near you.

Go to sleep.

What is the matter, after all?
She should have been here by now.

Sir, may I go again?
No. I'll go myself.

Mother!.. Mother!

Mother!.. Mother!

Rascal, you are eating bread?
You're stealing? Catch him!

Hit him. Catch him.

Hold him. Where is he?

When the darkness falls..
after midnight.

...A thief comes out..
on the black road.

...this voice can be heard.

Thief, thief, thief..

When people are sleeping
peacefully in closed rooms.

He keeps awake, runs
all night, the locks break..

...when it is morning. Ya!

Who is it?

They don't even let you sleep.
They come only at night.

Coming, coming.

Oh, Raja? - Lala.

So late at night?

My job is only at night, Lala.

Come in the morning.

I don't leave home
in the morning.

The police is chasing me

...and I don't want them
to chase you, too, Lala.

Police!? - Yes.

What a bother!

Yes. - Take this, Lala.

Take the goods and give the cash.

You always bring good things.
- That's true, Lala.

Here, take this.

What is this, Lala?
Only 5 leaves?

That is only for you.
I give only 300 to others.

There is a lot of danger.

There have been raids
in quite a few shops.

Yes, Lala.

You know I am
a thief, Lala? - Yes.

If I want to, I can clean
up that safe of yours.

Oh, Lord. Oh, Lord.

Oh, Lord. Now ask me
why I don't do it. - Why?

Lala, even thieves
have principles.

A thief never steals from
another thief's house.

So! I am also a thief?

No, Lala, I am a thief.
You are something special.

Hail Shri Rama, Lala.

He took that too!
He is a real big thief.

Tony! Hey, Tony.

Raja. I mean, king of thieves.

Welcome, welcome.

Lucky dog. Who bit you?
- A stone, pal.

She hit you with a piece of stone?
Seems to be a dangerous girl..

...dangerous girl.
She stoned you?

Tony, you can't seem to think
of anything but girls and liquor.

What else will
I talk about, man?

There are only three friends.
The first is you.

Then is my bottle of Feni,
from Goa, very pure. What?

And third is
my girl friend, Mary.

She is also from Goa.
Very pure, very pure. Correct?

You are something special.

What man?
You are calling my Mary names?

Not Mary. You. - Why?

Have you earned
a single paise this week?

What can I do, man?
My heart is very sad.

I haven't received a
letter from Mary for a week.

I don't feel like picking a pocket.
What can I do?

I steal and earn money
and you drink and lie around.

This won't do.

You will have to do something

if you want to stay with me.

I will do it. I will.
I'll pray for you.

God, keep my Raja free.
Keep him out of jails..

...not inside them.
Okay? Thank you, God.

Oh! Pray that dark clouds
cover the moon tonight.

The rascal comes out
when it is time for business.

You know this God does a
lot of mischief with the poor.

Raja, that he does
but even humans do it.

How many times they
have been to the moon..

...and how much money
have they wasted?

They could well have switched
the lights off when there.

Tony, what would happen
if you stopped having liquor?

My sleep will be gone, man.

What, Raja.
You threw away my sleep-medicine.

How will I get
into oblivion now?

Look. My Mary is in Goa and
I am young here. In this box.

Tony shut your nonsense.
It's time for business.

There might be some chance.

Certainly you'll get.

Tony. Hey, Tony.
Come quickly.

Why? Is it a girl?

No girl. Looks like
I'm in business today.

Yes, man. My heart says you
will get a beautiful chance today.

Tony. - Yes.

Look, I'm going.. - Yes.
- You do something.. - Yes.

Don't drink liquor. Okay?
- No, man, Never, never. - Correct?

Bye-bye, Raja. All the best.
God bless you, my dear.

When the darkness falls..
after midnight.

A thief comes out..
on the black road.

...this voice can be heard.

Hello. - Anita, darling, I am
caught in an important meeting.

I shall come late.
You have dinner and go to bed.

Shut up. I have heard
these excuses before.

Ravi, I know very well what kind
of a meeting you are caught in.

Why don't you understand.

Some important delegates
have come from abroad and..

...I am discussing
an important point.

Enough, Ravi.
It's finally decided today.

I will poison myself and die.
It's finished!

Oh! Hello!..
She'll have poison..

She says this every
day but never does it.

Ravi.. I hate you!

Where is that bottle
of mine? Where is it?

Today, I'll take
poison and kill myself.

I must die. All right, Ravi!

You'll see, Ravi.
You will cry a lot.

You'll regret this.
Just see. No one..

What am I seeing?

No, no, no.
This cannot be true.

But this is real.

I should be there in that pose..
But I am standing here.

Anita.. You dirty woman!

You blame me and yourself
sleep with other men.


Hey.. you, Mr. loafer!
What style! Shameless.

Anita, you don't know my temper.

I will count up to three.
If you don't get up, I will shoot.

One, two, three, four,
five, six, seven, eight, nine..

No reaction.

There is a limit
to shamelessness. Wait.

Who set fire
to my leg, brother?

I did, brother.

Don't do it again, right?


Anita. Hey, Anita.

Who is this? - Who?

This.. this.. - I'll ask him.

Brother! Who are you?

Who are you?

Me?.. Raja!


There is a limit
to shamelessness.

I am the husband and
all this drama before me?

Wait. Hold on.
I will set things right.

Oh! Who's thrown
this water? - I did.

Too much. First you light
a fire and then pour water.

What are you? Man or ass?


You are in my house, on my bed
and sleeping with my wife,

on top of which
you are abusing me?

Anita! - Why do you shout?
Go to sleep.

You characterless woman!
- What?

Yes. You blame me and
look at what you are doing.

- What I am doing? - Yes.

You called me characterless?
- Yes. Characterless.

You loafer. - What?
You called me a loafer?

You stupid girl.

You called me a stupid girl?

Yes. - You..

Go, go.

You drunken donkey!
- You called me a monkey?

No one called you a monkey.
I called you a donkey.

Donkey? That's even worse.

Now, go to sleep. Go to sleep.

Okay. Good night.
- Good night, monkey.

When the darkness falls..
after midnight.

A thief comes out..
on the black road.

...this voice
can be heard.

Thief, thief, thief..

Thief, thief, thief..

Oh! My jewellery. Oh!
Mother, mother. Come quickly.

Mother. We've been robbed.
Mother, Dad. Thief! Thief!

When the darkness falls in the
streets of the city.. after midnight.

A thief comes out..
on the black road.

...this voice
can be heard.

Thief, thief, thief..

Thief, thief, thief..

Father, I put on the turban on
your say so, but you cannot..

...tie me down in this way.
I am going, for good.

Marriage is a question of
my whole life and I cannot..

...play with my life
just to please you.

He's something special.

Don't try to find me. Suresh.

Suresh.. Suresh.

You had come upstairs for two minutes.
After all, what is the matter?

Look, son. The bride has
reached the wedding place.

The auspicious time for
the wedding is passing away.

Now, it is a matter
of my prestige.

If you don't come out, I will
have break open the door.

Suresh. Are you listening?

What happened?

The priest wants to know why
the bridegroom hasn't come.

It will be very insulting.

I always told you, that if the boy
doesn't like it.. - Enough. Enough.

You go on downstairs,
I'll get him down. Go.

Suresh. Are you coming out
or shall I break down the door?

Son. You have agreed?
You have accepted my word?

I am very happy.

I am your father.
I will never wish you ill.

That poor girl is an orphan.

That is why, looking at her
uncle's monetary condition..

...I have also arranged for
the wedding in this house.

I firmly believe that...

...you will never regret having
gone through with this marriage.

Come. All are
waiting downstairs.

Oh! Mr. Sharma?

You have come
in uniform for the wedding?

No, Mr. advocate.
I am on duty. It's obligatory.

I was chasing a thief..

...and he disappeared
on reaching this block.

I thought there would
be a crowd at your place..

...and that
I might have a look.

Certainly, but you
have to excuse me.

The auspicious time for
the wedding is passing by.

Certainly, certainly.
- Oh, son?

What are doing there? Meet the gentleman.
This is Inspector Sharma.

He has a record that
no one has escaped him.

Today you are caught!
For the whole life. Congratulations.

Oh! Why is your
hand trembling?

The bride is shy and trembles
at the time of the wedding..

...but you are the bridegroom.

All right. Good luck.
We will meet again.

Pour the ghee.

Pour the ghee. - Pour it, son.

Stand up, please.

What a spot I am in..
Look, whatever your name is.

Nirmala. - Nirmala it is.

I have done
a terrible mistake.

I know everything.

What do you know?

You were not ready
for this marriage.

No, no. I can have
nothing to do with you.

Don't say this. Let me remain
at these feet. What is this?

Don't say anything else to me.

I will not inflict any
kind of binding on you.

Till today, I was a
burden for my uncle.

He has, now, sent me away.

If I do not get shelter
here, where will I go?

I have no interest
in your sorry tale.

What is it, daughter-in-law?

What happened, child?
What happened?

What happened?
Why don't you speak?

The worst..
Suresh hasn't done well.

Had he gone before the wedding
we would have lost our prestige.

Now that he has gone
away after the wedding..

...he has ruined her life.

It would have been better
if he had.. died.

Mr. Advocate. Mr. Advocate.
Come down quickly.

What happened?

Suresh has met with an accident.
- What did you say?

Yes. He is below
in the ambulance and he..

...succumbed before
reaching the hospital.

Oh!.. - Suresh!

Sit in the car.. Sit.

I have kept in the car whatever
you had brought with you.


We have no relation
with you after today.

Forget for ever that you
had come to our house..

...as a daughter-in-law
and don't tell anyone.

I put on you this
vow on my dead son.

What are you saying, mother?

I loath your face. You killed
my son as soon as you came.

My husband got a heart
attack and he is still critical.

You have already
deprived me of my child.

Do you want to rob me
of my husband too?

Don't throw me out, mother.

Keep me as a servant
of the house. I beg of you.

Where will I go?

Wherever you wish.
The world is a big place.

Whatever ruin we
had to face, that's done.

Now, even your
accursed shadow should..

...not fall on this place.
Driver, take her away.

Look, child. With great
difficulty we raised you..

...got you married.. Now, if your
fate is accursed, what can I do?

You keep quiet!
And you listen carefully..

...your parents did not
leave even a phony coin.

Whatever we could do,
we have done.

We aren't obliged to
look after you for life.

But.. Where will
I go on my own, Aunt?

Go to ruin. How did you dare
to even come here. Go away.

Uncle! - You, uncle's dear.
Go away from here. Get out!

Uncle's dear.
Take your things away. Shameless.

Once again the tears
rained from the eyes.

..and the dark clouds
have gathered.

Tell the writers of fate
to write another story.

Neither did anyone feel pity,
nor did anyone felt shame..

..people just laughed and
gazed at one more spectacle.

Look, the string of
another kite in the sky is cut.

Tell the writers of fate
to write another story

Once again has a plant
from the garden become the..

..dust of the mountain.

..Once again has
a wave of the Ganges..

..changed into liquor.

Once again has the
belle of the well side..

..walked the path
of the cemetery.

Tell the writers of fate
to write another story.

Where will a bird
without wings fly away?

And everywhere cruel hunters
wait with nets spread out.

In this city of thieves,
everyone loots love.

Tell the writers of fate
to write another story.

Come on.

Stop whistling.

Oh, sir. Your law can shut
one up in prison..

...but not his soul and whistling
is the voice of the soul like..

...laughing, crying.. - Silence!

Today, your sentence is over.
- That very nice to hear.

Don't talk nonsense. These are
your things. Pick them up and get out.

This time you are a bit annoyed.

Earlier you always gave
me some advice about..

...not stealing. This time..

These things are said to someone
from whom one expects improvement...

You are a born thief.

You will steal again
and get caught again.

It's not really my fault, sir.
I steal with great finesse..

...but the rascals
manage to catch me.

These policemen
are something special?

Being abusive, are you?

Sir, this is an affectionate term.
If you ask me, even you.. - Shut up!

Mr. Jailor.
There is a small problem. - What?

Your moustache on this
side is a bit smaller than the..

...moustache on that.
Which fool does the shaving?

I shave myself.
- Oh! I am dead now.

Are all your things here?

Mr. Jailer, you have pinched my knife.
- You'll not get your knife back.

Please give it. It will be
a loss of 6 or 7 Rupees.

Constable! - Constable!
Return the knife. - Push him out.

Don't touch me.
My sentence is over. I'll sue you.

Mr. Jailer, may I say something?
- What is it?

Actually, I think you have
lost your human kindness..

...after living
with thieves and cheats.

Else, I always thought this
jail was my in-laws place.

Gardener. Does this place
belong to the advocate?

It used to.
They have all left.

Left? But six months ago
his son got married.

Was that a marriage, Sir?

The same night his son died
and they sold off the house and left.

Has everyone left?
- Everyone.

Thank you gardener.

Wow! Tony has really
changed this place!

Where did he get
so much moolah.

Look at him. Drunk early in the morning.
Look, your friend is back from jail.

Looks like he is out.
Come on. Get up!

Where is Tony? Tony?
Are you Mary? Mary?

Father! Father!

What is it, child?
Who is this?

I don't know.
I was sleeping here.

He touches my body
and says if I was his.

How dare you!? Who are you?
This room is mine.

Your room?
Are you leaving or I should..

You can't throw out
an innocent man..

Get out. I break your head
if you come back.

Listen, listen.
You are something special.

Being abusive! Rascal!

You idiot! Why were you
sleeping with the door open?

Feel like killing you.

Salutations, uncle.

When did you get out of jail?
- This morning.

Know anything about Tony?

He's gone to Goa to get married.
He couldn't wait for me, the rascal.

He said he could not
show you his face. - Why?

He didn't have money for
drink and sold off your place..

...to another for 50 Rupees.

Uncle, make a coffin for Tony.

I am sure to find him
some place, sometime.

This liquor is a vile thing.

Such a big railway
compartment has got into a bottle.

Now, where will I stay?

Peter. - No reaction at all.

Peter, why are you using
such big nails? Use smaller nails.

It hurts the corpse.
- It hurts the corpse.

Yes, uncle.

Raja, till you get back into jail
you may sleep in my veranda.

Oh, Thank you, uncle.

Uncle, you are a first-class man.
Great man.

Uncle.. The thing is..
I'm broke.

Raja. - Yes.

May I say something?
Don't ask for money. - Why?

Business is amul nowadays.
People just seem to be dying.

What will I do?
2 months, only 75 Rupees. - Oh!

Uncle, this coffin is beautiful.
Has a rich man died?

No. You see this coffin..
this coffin? - Yes.

I am making this for myself.
I am over 60, am I not?

How long will I live making
these coffins for others?

100 years, uncle.
If one could give someone..

... the years of one's life, I would give
your 25 of mine. You know why? - Why?

Because God has stopped
making good people like you.

Raja, stop buttering me up, man.
I will not help a thief.

Now, I will go to take rest.

Funny! I am speaking the truth
and uncle says I am buttering him up.


Raja, you see
this coat on the wall?

There are 25 Rupees in it.
You may steal 10 Rupees from it.

Thank you, uncle..
Uncle, you are.. a good one.

Listen, you guards, remain
in your senses, my friends.

Listen, you guards, remain
in your senses, my friends.

The night sways!

He is a snake charmer.

Thief, thief,
thief, thief.

My benefactor does not
look towards my face,

My benefactor does not
look towards my face,

he only listens to
the story of my heart..

...through the sounds
of my anklets.

Wearing a red scarf.

...with the pieces of the
heart joined together.

...abandoning all pretence at
modesty and breaking all bonds

...I have tied
these anklets

...I have tied
these anklets.

I will dance from today,
I'll die of shyness.

I will dance from today,
I'll die of shyness.

When all barriers are dropped
and when fate is uncertain

...when all
my companions have left

...and when all truths
have been found to be lies

...I have tied
these anklets.

I have traded my heart
and filled my empty coffers.

This is a night of celebration
and wealth is raining down

...there is no reason for sorrow
as I have tied these anklets.

Rani, who is this
bad-mannered guy?

Ustad, throw him out..
and tell the others also to leave.

Tonight there will
be no more dances.

Tonight I want
to be Ranibai's guest.

My profession is
only music and dance.

How much to remove
this 'only' will you take?

Tell me, my queen I'll pay
you the price you say. - Sir.

Rani, my name
is Seth Govardhandas.

I take whichever girl I like..

...and you are only an
ordinary dancing girl.

But she is still a woman.
- Rascal! Scoundrel!

Who are you to butt
in between Rani and me?

Raja. - Raja?

So, this is the matter.

Ranibai, had you told me
that you have kept a scoundrel..

...I might also have
made arrangements.

Oh, go away.
Son of a rich man.

Go and make arrangements.
Get out!

Is this for what you were
putting up with him for?

To stay alive.

I don't know whether
to thank you.. or to curse you.

Curse me.

Do you know what will be
the result of the bravado..

...that you have shown today?

People will stop coming here.

Whatever I was earning
from song and dance..

Oh! It is better
to beg for a living.

Having got tired of
hunger, I also begged..

...but the eyes of the
those who wanted to give..

...were even hungrier
than my stomach.

People always petted
these cheeks with affection..

...but I never liked it.

When you slapped me today,
I don't know why I liked it.

But why did you slap me? - I..

Do you like me? - Not at all.
- You don't like me. - Not at all.

Then why did you slap me?

I will remember
you for many days.

Oh, Raja. Quiet!

That is why I gave a start
when I heard your name.

This is my Raja.

Rani entertains kings (Rajahs)
and Raja entertains Rani.

You've never come
before to listen to my song.

You think I came here
to listen to your song?

Then? - I was out on my business
and reached here by mistake.

No, you are not of the
sorts who come here.

But who are you? Where have you
come from? Why have you come here?

I myself don't know.
My business is such..

...I have to
go anywhere, anytime.

There are
no restrictions for me.

Are you in the police?
- Around the police, somewhere. - CID?

All right, Rani.
My car has come.

But.. listen!

Strange man.

Since when is this door open?
- What's wrong?

Have you seen a stranger here?
Actually, we were chasing a thief.

He ran in and disappeared
in this building.

He is wearing blue
clothes, is good looking..

...and wears a black cap.

Not at all. I haven't seen anyone.
No one came here.

You are alone here? - Yes.
If you want to look around..

No, that won't be necessary.
He can't run away.

The police has surrounded
the building from all sides.

Come, Tukaram. Listen.
Please close the door.

Oh, my father!
This is the actress Mumtaz!

You are something special.

Who is it?

Meena.. Meena, Meena.

Yes, madam.

There was a thief here. I saw him
escape through the window just now.

Who knows what
he must have taken away.

You look there,
I'll look this way.

Mumtaz, I saw your
movie Khilona..

...and liked your work
very much. The thief.

Madam, the watch, gold necklace,
ring there is nothing left.

I don't know what else
he might have taken away.

Shall I call the police?

Let it go.

This thief seems to be a fan.

No, Lala. I don't want money.

I want a room.
You have a lot of tenements.

Only decent people live there.

Of which I also
know 2 or three.

One of whom, runs a still
and another is an illegal bookie.

There are 2 or 3
such every everywhere..

...but would anyone want
that his neighbor be a thief?

Who is a thief?

It is not written on my face
and you wouldn't tell anyone.

If you tell people about
me, I will something..

...about you to the police.

Are you threatening me?

Think about it, Lala.
I do only thefts.

You have a lot of black deeds.

All right. Come tomorrow.
I will see.

Oh, Lala. Who knows
about the tomorrow?

I have brought a lock.
I want a room.

Have it cleaned. I'll be here
tomorrow with my baggage.

He's given Lala the lock.
The rascal.

Uncle John. We're even now.

Stop all work.
Here is a treat from me.

Look what I have brought,
roast chicken, biryani, kebabs.

With stolen money?

Raja, in 60 years I have
made a lot of mistakes..

...but haven't made
one knowingly.

Now it is time to go
up and give an account.

Raja, you don't
spoil my faith, man.

It is a sin to fill your
tummy with stolen money.

Uncle, whenever I meet a
good man I forget myself.

I won't make such
a mistake again.

Hey, Raja! That upset you?

I stopped being upset
when I was 5 years old.

You can pass but you are
very weak in English. - Yes, yes.

But you can get first class
in English. - How's that?

Professor Zebrinski's
magic ring.

- Yes, yes. Ring.

Take out 2 Rupees.
- But I have only one Rupee.

Will do. I'll give you
a student concession.

Say this, Kaka Ena
Zebrinski. - Whisky!

Not whisky. Zebrinski.
- Yes, yes. Zebrinski.

Don't remove the ring till
your results are out. What?

Yes. Yes. Not to take off. - Out.
- Thank you very much, uncle.

Very lucky hand.
You are very lucky.

You are to meet
a very pretty girl.

You will be a millionaire
within 6 months.

You will rule
the world.. Raja!

Professor Zebrinski,
the cheat!

Speak softly, man.
This is the time for business.

Students' exams start
from tomorrow.

You rascal. I went to jail
and you sold off my room.

What could I do man?
You went in and I became broke.

I wanted to get married.
I wanted to get you a sister-in-law.

Got married? - No, man.

Mary's father's
still got caught.

He landed himself
in jail for three months.

- Your Mary remains unwed still?
Hey! My Mary, not yours. Your sister-in-law.

Where do you stay nowadays?

I remain here all day,
man and sleep at night..

...on the footpath somewhere.

How is your business, man?

My business is first-class.
I've taken a room.

A room. Your own?
You'll stay all alone?

You need to have
a friend with you.

Someone who will sell it off?

You will get rooms aplenty but
you won't get a friend like me. - Tony.

Hey! Professor Zebrenski.

Yes, professor Zebr.. Rinski.
You are something special.

That's why I am
your friend. What?

Keep fooling the people and come
in the evening. Carry on. - Okay.

Home sweet home.
Yes, this is something!

Thank me, man. - Why?

Yes, yes. If I hadn't sold off
the goods train compartment..

...you would've remained there.
What's the rent? - 30. - Not much.

And look. This half
is yours and this is mine.

Oh, Thank you! My own room!

And you have to
pay half the rent.

What, man?
Do you take rent from a friend?

Free friendship days are over.
Now we go halves on everything. - Wait.

No halves on my Mary. Okay?

Tony, if you wish to
live with me, this thing..

...about Mary
and liquor won't do.

From tomorrow.

Today we have come to
a new house. We must celebrate.

Rascal, you'll die of drink.

You'll die without
drinking, man.

I say, this is the chance. Have fun!
You are a useless fellow.

What did you say?

I said, had I taken this room,
I would called for a cask of..

...liquor and had the whole
chawl to drink with me.

I'd have dance and song.

Mary, my darling,
my sweetheart.

Tony, will you listen to song?

No, no. If you sing,
I will become sober again.

I am talking about a girl.
A dancing girl.

Lovely, beautiful girl.
- There is a girl.

What is it?
- We want to listen to song.

Today is Tuesday. - So, what if it is?
- Baiji is fasting today.


Go in. - Yes, madam.

Salutations. - Salutations.

Please come. - Come.

Please sit down.

This is my best
friend, Anthony.

What sir?

The other day, the
song I heard, I loved it.

That is why I've
brought my friend along.

You have come
to listen to me sing?

Yes. All right, I might
not be Seth Gordhandas..

...but I won't
listen for free.

We've got the moolah.
Show it to her.

Shall I give her all?

Please sit down.


How dirty are your feet?
- Sorry, sorry.

What do you wish to hear?
Ghazal, Thumri or Dadra?

Dadra. Sounds like
liquor man? - Quiet.

You will sing in this dress?

We don't want to listen
to some devotional song.

You go and change into
some flashy dress and..

...sing some jazzy song, so
that my friend Tony is pleased.

Thank you.

I'll be back soon.

Raja. - Yes.

You see Rani's servant?

My heart beats faster
when I see her, man.

And when she walks,
then her behind.. - Quiet!

Look, Tony. I have brought you
here as a Lord. - What Lord, man!

And listen.
Sit like a decent man.

Raja, if decent people come
here, where do the indecent go?

Go away, I now know you..

...I know you, I know you.

The one who will hold
his heart still and sigh away.

...how will he ever
fulfill my young love?

Unnecessarily have I taken
an obligation on my head.

No one saw the temple,
everyone saw only the idol.

No one saw the heart,
they saw only the face.

I have tested you.

You come inside
with me for a while.

I? - Go, man, go.
Golden chance.

God blesses. You.
He's got it.. Good.

Shut the door.

Speak up..

I don't know your friend. That is
why I said nothing before him.

What is there to say?

Take this. - Why?
- I don't want your money.

You'd helped me
and I entertained you.

That's all. We're even now.

Even singing and dancing
girls have some principles.

I can see that.

There is dance outside and
worship in the inside room.

What hippocracy is this?
Be what you are.

But.. You too are
not what you are.

What do you mean?

What would happen if
had I kept this necklace..

...and been caught?
- I'm in trouble here.

I agree my profession is bad,..

... but yours is not
praiseworthy either.

How do you know?

After you left the other
day a policeman had come.

What.. What did you tell him?


Had I said something..
you might be in jail right now.


Don't come here again.

Not even to listen to song?

No. Go some place else.

There are other joints
in the neighborhood.

All right. I won't
come to listen to song.

But I can come to steal.
How will you stop a thief?

I will pray to God that you
be caught and be sent to jail.


So that you are never
able to come here.

How can you be trusted?

You are a thief.
You will steal and go away..

...and leave
a life time of sorrow.

This life is
also a funny thing.

Today, I haven't stolen
anything but still got caught.

Raja, son, you are gone now.

Mary, my sweetheart, my darling.
Mary had a little lamb.

All are beautiful
and under twenty.

Tony, what is this nonsense.

This is my heart
control cabin, man.

You know how
footloose my heart is.

It jumps out of the
shirt when it sees a girl.

If I get caught somewhere, I will
be second-hand stuff for my Mary.

These girly photos will keep
me in control till I get married.

Hey! Where did you get this?

Stole it. We'd gone there
to listen to her song.

Tony, if this photo is put up
alongside these others, I'll..

Why, why, why, man?

I understand. She is yours?
Mary's sister-in-law? Idea!

Two months later, Mary's
father will be out of jail..

...and Mary will be free.
We'll get married together.

We'll also spend less, man.

You name your son
Raju, I'll name mine Kaju.

Go get ready.

I'm ready for long, man.
Mary's dad is not ready.

May Mary's father go to ruin.

We have to pay rent the day
after tomorrow. Time for work.

The rascal tells me to work.

Five for three,
Five for three.

How's the movie?

Mumtaz in the movie.
You'll love it.

Do you have two tickets..

Come into the corner.

No, darling, no.

No, I cannot live without you.
Why don't you divorce him?

That's impossible. Leave me.
This is our last meeting.

You'd ask for Rupees 500 from
me but I have got 1000. Take this.

Thief, thief.

What are you doing?
Suppose my husband saw us?

Let you husband be,
The moolah is going there.

Thief, thief.
There he goes. Catch him.

We should hand him
over to the police.

No, no.
I got my stuff, let him go.

All right. If the guy
doesn't mind why should we?

Let's go
and mind our business.

Raja! Ustad, come quickly.

Pick him up.. Carefully.

Oh! You are up.

Here. Take this milk.
- Kids drink milk.

What are you doing?
Lie down. You need rest now.

Sit here.

Tell me.

Why have you brought me here?

What am I to you?

No one.. I just like you.

It's better if we finish
the matter right here.

This only you can do Raja.
- Me?

I mean you can
do it, I cannot.

Let this relationship
remain Rani.

Actually, I too cannot do it.

Shall I say something?
You won't laugh? Sure?

I was thinking that I should
have someone, a small home..

...where, on returning home in
the evening, there should be..

...someone waiting for me.

And one day, suddenly, you
do not return and I find out..

...that you are in jail.

That is why I said we
should finish the matter here.

I am a thief, Rani.
That is my profession.

Raja, leave all this.

Leave it?

I will also leave everything.
I also want a home.

My own home.

It is easy to say this.
Will you be able to leave all this?

A life of ease and leisure?

The day you bring your first
pay-packet earned with true hard work...

...I will.



So, brother, finished?
- Yes, sir.

Come let's go.

Sir, your purse
has fallen down there.

Oh! There's a lot
of money in it.

Keep it carefully.
The money can tempt any one.

Nowadays, one does not find
honest men like you, brother.

Here, this is your reward.
- No, sir. One rupee for my work.

Thank you, sir.

Rani. Hey, Rani. - Raja, Raja.
- Shut your mouth.

I am Raja. You have
been dethroned. Rani is mine.

She is mine.

You.. - Oh! What is going on?

Tell him. One Rani
cannot have two Rajas.

When did you come? - Just now. Here,
take this. 5 Rupees and some change.

Raja, where did
this money come from?

Come? I've earned it.
Washing cars all day..

...picking peoples' bags and
burning all day in the sun.

Therefore you are
glowing so much today.

What do I look like?

Golden. That gets
a sheen after being heated.

Oh, Rani. You a special thing.

You changed my profession
in a day. Ruined my life.

I used to open people's safe
and loot thousands and now..

...I open their car doors
and get only one Rupee.

This kind of
earning is useless.

But the worth of this rupee is
more than 100,000 Rupees.

Is that so? Move aside.

Now, tell me what
you think of this.

Raja, you have stolen again.

These are false.

Bought them for 2 '/2 Rupees. I've
stopped stealing. As I had promised you.

I made a mistake.
Forgive me Raja.

You've brought it.
You put them on.

Hey! Why did you stop?

The hands that have learned
all their lives to snatch from ears,

cannot put them on.
Maybe it is a habit.

You have changed. The habits
of your hands will also change.

Come. Put them on.

Let me see how I look.

Look here, Raja.
How do I look?

Tell me.

Absolutely crackers!

Come. I'm ready.


Wherever you wish.

I'd promised you that the
day you'd bring your first pay..

I would stop everything.

Oh! Who knows how long
this car washing will last.

Let me get a regular job and I'll
take you from here. Very soon.

Raja.. We have to start
a new life but I feel afraid.

Afraid. Of what?

Our past life, our ill repute.

Bury it. Bury it forever.

Rani will never dance again.

And Raja will
never steal again.

Look. Such a lovely lake.
Isn't it?

We'll do one thing.
We'll bathe in this lake..

...and wash away
all our old sins.

Here? Come on. Don't joke.

I am not joking.
Let's do it. Come on.

I have a sari. I'll wear it.
What will you wear?

I have this handkerchief.
I'll wear it and bathe.


What is shameless about it?

Rani, hurry up.

I am all ready. Now, you get
ready quickly and come out.

When you come out
make sure you don't laugh.

Oh! Why have you
got your eyes shut?


What do you mean?
Open your eyes.

You are laughing
for no reason at all!

I thought..

Oh, no, no. Come on.

Oh! If you are feeling
cold, change your wet dress.

What happened?

It's an odd thing.
Till yesterday I was a bazaar woman.

I didn't have any kind
of feeling of bashfulness.

But today, my body was bared
only a little before you..

...and I felt bashful.
What is this called, Raja?

What kind
of bashfulness is this?

This is the bashfulness
that is born out of true love.

Rani, forget your old life.

The people of this world are..

...naught before our love.
I am telling you the truth.

Rani, what is all this
big talk I was making?

You were saying
very sweet things.

Is that so? So.
What was I saying?

You were saying that this
world is nothing before our love.

Then I said wrong.

I should have said that
there is no one in this..

...world besides
the two of us.

You have said such a big thing.
What can one say now?

One can say a lot
if one wants to.

What? - Should I show you?

There was a sea,
a moonlight in the sky

...and yes,
what was I saying?

...and yes,
what was I saying?

You were saying, O lovely girl,
it is difficult to live in love.

Yes, I just remembered
that since I fell in love.

Today.. what day
is it today?

It's Friday..
Time is passing by.

Wait, someone is coming.

It is a traveler who
is going on his way

Bless me, I was afraid.

...and yes,
what was I saying?

You were telling a story,
ever since youth came upon us.

Okay listen to this. Ever since
these feelings were aroused

What's the date today?

Today is the 26th.

Love is weaving dreams.

Look, someone is listening.

It's the gardener. He is
picking flowers in the garden.

I was mistaken

...and yes,
what was I saying?

After remembering this story.
Don't forget me.

Am I some mad guy, ever
since I have lost my sleep.

And yes, what month is it?


It's a lovely weather.

Why is the police
going round?

They are not looking
for you, but a thief.

...and yes,
what were you saying?

...and yes,
what were you saying?

Yes, what was I saying?

I was saying something.

Tell me. Forgot it?

Oh, yes. I forgot it.

Come on. Let's go home.

Synced by Anomix33

Come, Ranibai.
I had heard a lot about you..

...but I have come
for the first time.

I used to go to Munnibai but
there is nothing left in her now.

I have stopped
doing song and dance.

You have stopped it.
Then, what else you do?

I used to Worship god.
I think why do honorable and ..

...respectable men
like you come here?

To appease the heart.

By throwing away money?
By putting your reputation at risk?

What do you mean?

Suppose your wife or
someone who knows you..

...sees me with you, what
will be your prestige then?

Let this all be. Tell me what
you will take to dance.

Will you be able to give it?

Just ask and see.

Take me to your home.

What did you say?

Take me before your wife
and children and tell that..

...this is Ranibai who can give
me more love and kinship..

...than any of you.

To whose house,
stealing away from sight..

...in the dark of the night,
I go to appease my heart.

Why are you quiet now, sir?

You had asked for the price
for my dance, hadn't you?

I didn't ask for wealth.
I didn't ask for a costly present.

Ranibai. I came here
for a few moments of peace..

...not to listen
to your sermon.

I am going. There are
a lot of joints like this.

Listen, please.

One who does not find
peace in his own house, fools..

...himself by spending
these two moments here.

You have a treasure
of happiness hidden in..

...your own house. Search for
it once with a true heart.

Talk of home and hearth from
a woman like you. Astounding!

Those who live
in hell dream of heaven.

What is surprising is that
leaving, their heaven at home..

...shunning the love of
their wife and children..

...good and intelligent people
like you come to this hell.

Why? To search
for peace of mind.

I beg of you, sir.
Go back home.

You will hear the chimes
of these anklets in..

...the laughter
of your children.

And the grace and the words
of the dance and song will be..

...nothing before the
modest smile of your wife.

I promise you that if you
make a sincere effort and still..

...do not find happiness,
I will dance for you.

And I will take no money.

Usha.. Usha.

You are home so early?

You will hear the chimes
of the anklets in the..

...laughter of your children.

And the grace and the words
of the dance and song will be..

...nothing before the
modest smile of your wife.

What's happened to you?

You are Ranibai?

Yes. And you?

Me? The door was open
and I didn't see anyone.

So I came in.

Does not matter.
Please come. Sit down.

Wait. First let me see you
to my heart's content.

I feel like hugging you.

But who are you?

Me? I am that person's
wife who, after years..

...came home last evening.

The task that I could
not achieve in 5 years..

...even after giving
birth to his child..

...how did you do it
in one day, sister?


I will never be able to
repay you for this favor.

You are embarrassing me.

In my heart I am worshipping you.
I feel .. I feel like..

...touching the feet
of a Goddess like you.

No, no.
What is this that you do?

What I am doing is only right.

Tell me.. Tell me,
what can I give you in..

...return for this favor?
What shall I give?

You have given me
without my asking?

By calling me your sister.

My dear sister.
May God always keep you happy.

Always keep you happy.

Taking small kids down from
the bus and putting them on..

...and reaching them home.
It is a responsible job.

I know, sir. You will never
have cause for complaint.

Yes, father. Don't worry.

This boy will work hard
and with sincerity.

All right.
Come to work from tomorrow.

All right, sir.. - What happen?
- I am thirsty.. some water.

There is a tap outside.

You!? How did you
get into my room?

The thirsty man has to
come to the well, Ranibai.

You leave this
place right now.

Great. You look even
lovelier in wet clothes.

You vulgar man!
Are you going or not?

No. I will settle
the matter today. 1000 Rupees.


All right. 5000 Rupees.

Think it over, Ranibai.

No one will give you this
much even for a full night.

Talk with decency.

Ranibai. For song and dance,
there are a lot of women..

...it's a matter of the heart. It's just
that I am especially fond of you.

I have stopped
doing dance, sir.

I am getting married
and settling down.

Great. Great. Let me know
whom have you trapped?

I am telling you for the last time.
Go away from here.

I am going, Ranibai. I know
women of your kind very well.

Your kind of woman, who
makes a bare display of her..

...body, can never
be someone's wife.

A degraded woman
can never be a Sita.

Why not? In a country where
there can be a dacoit Valmiki..

...in that country a
woman, perhaps not a Sita..

...can certainly
be a sati. (Chaste woman)

She can be. But for how long?

You will see, Ranibai. You will
return one day to this bazaar.

A bird of the cage can only
dream of the skies but cannot fly.

Rani. Oh, Rani.

What is this? You are crying?
What happened?

Nothing. - Nothing?

Does one cry when
nothing is the matter?

Tell me. Why did you cry?

I suddenly thought of what
I am and what you want to..

...make of me.
That's all and I cried.

Oh, is that all?
And I wondered what the problem was.

Now, stop all this crying and
start laughing. Ask me why.


I have got a job.
- Really? Where?

In a children's school.
- In a school!

The job of ringing
the bell in the bus. Ting, ting.

Salary 90 rupees. And the work
is to take care of the kids.

That's good. I'll get some
experience before marriage.

Raja. Take me away from
here this very moment.

Where, where?

Where you live.
To your house. Wherever.

Where I live there is only one
room, half of this. Will it do?

It will.

If it will do for you,
it will for me too.

I'll get some clothes.

You look lovelier
in wet clothes.

Why do you need to change it?
- Don't you feel ashamed?

Yes, but not for long.

Go away. - Go away?

God, I have a job and a girl
but only needed a God there.

Why don't you come?
Will you come?

Yes. That's the spirit.
Thank you, thank you.

Who is it? Oh, Raja?
You are something special, mate.

That's all? Tired already?

How much further is it, Raja?

Just a little further.

You have been saying
this for long.

The thing is that you don't
have the habit of walking.

Our journey has just started;
we have a long way to go.

You'll have to cook, wash clothes,
get vegetables from the bazaar ..

...and do lots and
lots of hard work.

You are scaring me?

No, giving you one last chance.
Think it out.

Come. - Aha!
That's the spirit.

Sit, sit. May I say something?
- Tell me.

Actually, I am tired too.

Now, we will relax here
and then walk comfortably.

May I also say something?

Tell me? - May I? - Yes.

Raja, you are
something special.

I am a thief
and you are my queen..

...I am a thief
and you are my queen..

...I am stealing you
from yourself.

...I am a thief
and you are my queen..

No, not thief. You are my king
and I am your queen..

You are my king
and I am your queen.

I am going with you and...

all the world behind.

...You are my king.

We have both seen a dream.

...Somewhere there is a
small home of our own.

...Oh, we have
both seen a dream..

There are moonlit
nights in the courtyard.

...we are sitting
and talking of love.

...if I ever forget these
nights and these talks.

...remind me, don't forget.


I am a thief
and you are my queen..

...I am a thief
and you are my queen..

...I am stealing you
from yourself

...I am a thief
and you are my queen..

...I am a thief.

Fate has meted out
only sorrows to us

...and spread only
thorns in our path

Oh! We have decorated
our own lanes

...weeded out the thorns
and spread only flowers

if I ever forget these
lanes and these flowers

...then remind me,
Oh, don't forget.


You are my king
and I am your queen.

...You are my king
and I am your queen.

..I have come with you,
leaving the world behind..

You are my king
and I am your queen.

I am a thief
and you are my queen..

...I am stealing you
from yourself

...I am a thief
and you are my queen..

You are my king.
- And you are my queen.

Your house.

Oh, Christ!

Your friend.

Hey, open the door!

What, man. You bring your
girl-friend without warning.

I was doing prayers.

Hello. Very sweet, eh?

Tony, mouth under control
and a lock on your tongue.

No filthy talk
before her or else..

No, man. The one who
talks filth, I'll.. - Hey!

Sorry, sorry. Your friend is
my friend. Your guest is my guest.

Your darling is my.. - Sister.

Right! Sister.

Tony, she will stay
right here from today.

Here? I have no problem.

You two will be there
and I on this side.

If you want we'll have
a curtain in the middle.

That's fine but today onwards,
we'll both sleep outside.

Why? Why, man?

Why? I'll show you why.. - Oh!
Raja, what are you doing?

Sister, he is doing right.

Had my Mary been here first,
I would have chased him out.

Give me one rupee, man.
I'm flat broke, today.

Take this.
- Thank you, thank you.

Excuse me. My shoes, man.

Come on, get going.

Goodnight, sister.

What are all these, Raja?

Tony. But not one
will remain tomorrow.

Not one? - Get lost!

God bless you.

He's a dog but he's good.

Rani, this is your house.
Check what's here.

If there is something missing,
you'll get it tomorrow. What?

I understand.

We have to make a home
and there is nothing here.

Oh! Everything will be done.
Just sit for a while.

We sit a chat for
a while and rest a bit.

Hey! Your room
is outside. - Where?

Outside that door.

Oh! Thank you.

Rani, Rani..
May I say something? - Tell me.

Give me a little kiss. - You!..

No, nothing bad.
Here is your God. Take care.


Oh, Raja, listen.

Do your salutations to
God before going for work.

Yes, of course.
Salutations, God.

Just give me your hand.

You are feeling
embarrassed, sister?

You shouldn't feel
embarrassed in love.

Raja kissed your hand, had it
been my Mary. I would have..

...what to do? He's told me
not to say these things.

Your Mary loves you a lot?

Love? She's mad about me. Mad.

She writes two
letters everyday to me.

I got one just yesterday. Look.

Darling, Tony. Sweetheart.

Last night I saw
you in my dreams.

We both went to the park.
It was a moonlit night.

We sat behind the bench
and after that..

...it is very personal
talk after that.

Sister, I have kept all
Mary's letters carefully.

Come, I'll show you. Come.

Look, sister, look.
More than 200!

Then why don't
you get married.

Yes, I'll do it.
In just one or two months more.

But I have made all
preparations for the wedding.

Look. I've made such a
pretty wedding gown for Mary.

It's very beautiful.

Sister, now you must
listen to what I have to say:

You must do justice to me.
- What justice?

Look at this. Here.
See these pictures?

I have got them
with such difficulty.

I have put them up
with my own blood.

Now, Raja says I
should throw them away.

What do you say, sister?

Suppose Mary were here?

Forget about Mary. Mary lets me
do everything.. Sorry..

Let them remain, sister.

Tony, look. You have called
me your sister, haven't you?


Then, you tell me.

Do such pictures look
good before a sister?

No, no. Never.
Out, out, Sweetheart. Out, please.

Tony, now.. you help me
clean up the house.

We've got to get things for
the house, decorate the house..

You have to do nothing.

You just go there to
the mat, in the corner.

Tony will do everything.

Tony.. there was something..
Where is that around here?

That? - That!

You mean the latrine?..

It's there, right opposite.
But it's dirty. Don't go there.

There's such a long queue.

You better go there,
across the railway tracks.

You can sit there comfortably.

No, Tony!

Did I say something dirty?

Come on, uncle.
Come on, uncle.

Yes. Yes, we are moving.


What is your name,
conductor uncle?

My name is Raja.

Uncle Raja, will
you play with me?

Yes, yes. Certainly.
We'll play tomorrow.

We'll play 'cops and robbers'.

Child, I have played
'cops and robbers' a lot.

Now, I have left
all that behind.

All right.

Here's your house.

Mummy, mummy.

Tata, baby. - Tata!

Oh! You had a gold chain
around your neck. Where is it?

I don't know. - Conductor!

Yes, madam?

There was a gold chain around
Munni's neck. It's gone now.

I'll just check in the bus.
It might have fallen down there.

What is the matter?

I don't know where she
has dropped her gold chain.

Tell me, child.
Where is the gold chain?

I don't know, Papa.

Sister, it's not in the bus.


You, perhaps, did not
know that she is my child..

...or you would not have dared
to touch the chain. Give me.

Mr. Jailor, I am speaking the truth.
I haven't seen the chain.

I have stopped stealing.
- Don't talk nonsense!

Return the chain quietly.

Mr. Jailor, I am speaking the truth.
I work hard to get by.

I have sworn not to steal.

So, you think I will
believe the oath of a thief?

Papa, don't hit uncle Raja.

Ratna, take her inside.
- Come, child.

Will you tell me or not?
- Sir, I haven't stolen it.

I am speaking the truth.

Idiot! Scoundrel!
- Please listen to me.

I know you very well.

You can do what
you want to with me,

but I tell you
I haven't done the theft.

Sir, why are you hitting him.
He's a very nice man.

You don't know him.
He is a thief.

I have told you several times.
I have not done the theft.

Listen, Mr. Jailor will not
put any charge on you.

If you have given the chain to
someone or sold it, then tell us.

After this, I do not say anything.
Please do as you wish.

Hello.. call for you.

Hello.. What did you say?
It's with Munni's teacher? Okay.

I am very sorry, Inspector.
Munni's teacher just rang..

...my wife to tell her
that she has the chain.

I made a mistake, Raja.
I am sorry.

Good you did not send me to
jail or you would have felt worse.

Father, I am glad the
truth of the matter is out..

...or what would you
have thought about me.

Even then I cannot keep
you in the school.


It is a matter of the school
and after it is known that you..

...have been to jail several times..
I'm really very sorry.

Thank you. Thank you, Father.

And the fun will be great
after you have drunk.

Hey, Tony.
Your glass is empty.

Shankar Dada, my pocket is
also empty. I am going. Bye.

Sit, mate. Sit.

You see the bottle before you.
Drink all you want. - Drink it?

Dada, you are
telling me to drink?

You normally take a round
and drink liquor for free.

Hey, everyone on the block
will stand you a free drink.

Your value has
gone up, hasn't it?

Gone up?
Tony's value has gone up?

What are you saying.
I cannot understand it?

Look, Tony.
Aren't we all friends? - Yes.

We all sit in one place and
drink our liquor, don't we?

Then, those who drink
together have one principle.

Whatever we have,
we should share it.

Share it? You are
saying this, dada?

You must be drunk.
You've had too much.

What are you saying?

No, no, dada. I am drunk.
We should share it. Now I understand.

Now, look here, Tony.
I'll explain.

You cannot understand the
signals, I'll tell you straight.

Look, I have fallen for that
cute baby that is in your house.

Dada, why have you
tied that bandage?

Leave it.
I had a fight yesterday.

Hey, Tony. Shankar dada
is talking about that girl..

...that lives in your room.

You bastard!

Dada, that is no cute
baby, she is my sister.

Raja is going to marry her.

Oh, mate!
He is going to marry her.

He hasn't already
done it, has he?

What is your problem if I wash
my hands in a flowing stream?


You rascal! You dare lift
your hands against me!

Don't worry, Raja.
You'll find another job.

Rani, once you are branded,
no one gives you a job.

Tony!.. Tony.. Hey, Tony!

What happened?

Tony, Tony, what happened?

Looks like I am finished.

There was a fight at the drink
joint and I got in unnecessarily.

The rascal knifed me.

Sorry. I shouldn't swear
it before sister, must I?

Sit here with him.
I'll get the doctor.

Don't go anywhere.
Now, I have to go.

But, Raja. Today onwards
I will not cheat anyone...

...I won't swear any more..
I won't drink any more.

Now, shut your nonsense.

How can you die
without marrying Mary?

No, man. All that
about Mary was just bluff.

There is no Mary. - What!?

Yes, man. What girl
will love a cheat like me?

Just to make myself feel happy,
I used to write letters..

...in Mary's name to myself.

What are you saying?

You have made all
preparations for the wedding.

They will all be useful
for your wedding, man.

A present for
my sister for her wedding.

I won't let you die!

Wait, man.

Sister.. I won't be able
to come to Raja's wedding.

Let me see you
as a bride once.

The clothes are
there in my suitcase.

Put them on and show me.
Quickly. Go! - Go.

Oh, God! - Tony!

Raja, why are you crying?
I was sure to die.

Had I not been knifed,
drink would have killed me.

In this world thousands
of Tonys die everyday.

You did a good thing.
You've become a good man, Raja.

Now, you get married soon.
When you have a little boy..

...tell him that
he had an uncle..

Who went away without
seeing him.. and a friend..

Tony, stop it.

Tell him his uncle wasn't
a cheat. He did not drink.

Look, Tony.
I am wearing everything.

Sister.. You look so good..
Just like an angel..

...like a Goddess.

God bless..

Tony? He's gone.
The rascal is gone.

Raja. You remember
I'd made this for myself?

Tony's taken it.

Had I known about
this, I would have made..

...one out of gold
for the rascal.

Raja, I think Tony must
have had a lot to drink..

...else he wouldn't have
fought with Shankar dada.

I heard that Shankar
said some vile things..

...about Rani
at the joint, man.

Tony got annoyed
and fought with him and..

Shankar knifed him..
Knifed him.


Tony was my friend, Shankar..
Tony is dead.

Looks like it
is your turn now.


I beat him up,
Tony.. beat him.

Tony.. Hey, Tony.

Come children, Come on all.

Come, children, mothers,
come fathers. Come and eat.

Hurry up, Tony.
It's getting late. - Yes, mate.

Son, is your name Tony?
- Yes, here take the money.

Let it be, son.

Thank you. Let's go, Pappu.
- Let's go.

Give me Golgappas too.

Oh! But they are finished.

Child, we'll get more
tomorrow. Lots more.

Why do you cry?
It's nothing to cry about.

Raja, there are some more
at home. Shall I get them?

Listen. Take her along.

It is a matter of two minutes or
she will create a bedlam here.

Baby, come on.
We'll get you Golgappas.

Hey, Lady! Where are
you taking the baby?

She wanted to have Golgappas.

Go away. Were you
running away with her?

No, no! - No, no.
You have the wrong impression..

You are also with her?

Oh! This is Ranibai
the dancing girl.

This is how these women carry off
little girls and introduce..

...them into their trade.

You shut your mouth, you dog.

This is not Ranibai's room.
- Get lost, man.

Mr. Inspector,
my ayah said that..

...someone was running away
with my daughter. Who was it?

There was a dancing girl
and a thief. There they are.

Rani, you?

Then, that girl is yours?

But how did this happen?

What can I say?

Raja and I were trying
to lead an honest life.

We were working hard and
were selling some things.

The things were finished
and the child was adamant.

I told her that I would
give her some at home.

The child was going
with us, that's all.

And people thought
we were thieves and..

...and also they hit my Raja.

Mr. Inspector, I can say with
conviction that these people..

...cannot do such a thing.

And people who can
light up someone's home..

...how can they snatch
away the light of my house?

The fault is my ayah's,
not theirs.

How is it not our fault, sir?

We were bad people and
wanted to become good.

Isn't that a sufficient fault?

I apologize for
what happened today.

Mr. Inspector,
can they go now?

When you have not
preferred any charges..

...what objection can I have?

Thank you.

You two come with me.
- With you?

Yes, I want to talk about
something with the two of you.


Why don't you marry?

How can we get married,
till I don't get a proper job?

Don't worry about that.
Are you educated?

Didn't get a chance..

...but I can say 'Good
morning' and 'Thank you'.

Anyway, no matter. I'll try my
level best to get a job for you.

Thank you, sir.
- You're welcome.

Thank you. - All right.

Thank you.

It is Pinky's birthday the day
after tomorrow and you are..

...to come here with Raja.

Raja and I? - Yes.

What are you saying?
Amidst all the big people, I..

You'll look very good.
And are you any less?

In any case, what is
there in these big people..

...a few good clothes
and expensive jewelry.


These are my saris.

Take the ones you like
and wear it on the day.

No, no.

You can return them. - But..

How can I wear your things?
I am unworthy of them.

Look, Rani.
I have called you my sister.

If you say anything
like that again..

...I will be annoyed with you.

Look at this. This color
really looks good on you.

And look at this. This goes
very well with the sari.

Raja! Come, Come. But tell me,
why are you two so late?

These are Golgappas
for Rani's birthday.

That's why we got
a little late.

Great! What a present!

It's a nice present.
Can there be one any better?

Rani, how did you remember?
Do you know?

Baby has been talking about
Golgappas for the last 4 days.

Where is she?

She's there, come.

Come, Raja.


Here are the Golgappas.
You like them, don't you?

Yes. May I have them?

Yes, child. But after
we've cut the cake. Okay?

Yes. I think everyone's here.
Shall we cut the cake?

Come, Raja.
- Come, Rani. Come along.

Oh! Do you see Pinky's cake.
- Lovely.

Let's us finish quickly
the ceremony of..

...the cake-cutting.
Mr. Shamlal.

People are eager to listen
to the baby's congratulations.

What do you mean?

Is this something to ask about?
When you have called..

...such a famous
dancer like Ranibai..

...we are sure to
have song and dance.

Mr. Gupta. You are mistaken.

This is Ranidevi
and she is our guest.

Okay, 'devi' is fine.
I am also an old disciple of hers.

Mr. Gupta, be careful what
you speak. - No, no, sir. Let it go.

You are being insulted on
our account. We'll go. Come, Rani.

Raja! You will not go.

Mr. Gupta. Now that you are
bent upon embarrassing before all,

let me then clarify to you..

...what these two mean to me.

This Rani is my younger sister
and Raja is her husband to be.

But henceforth, whenever you..

...have guests such as these for
your parties please do not invite us.

Mr. Gupta, you are
crossing all limits!

Come on, Raja.

We are unable to watch
you being insulted. We are leaving.

No, Raja. Had he insulted me,
I wouldn't have minded a bit.

But he has insulted the relationship
that is between a brother and a sister...

He has scoffed at its purity.

You may leave if you wish.

And, with you, all those who
have any objection to Raja..

...and Rani being here,
can join you.

Ladies and gentlemen,
Let's forget about everything.

It happens sometimes,
that people are misled.

Sister Rani, today, you
will cut Pinky's birthday cake.

Blow it! Good!

Happy birthday to you..

Happy birthday to you..

Aha! Lovely! - Here, take.

No, first Raja.

Give him.
Why are you feeling shy?

Why are you feeling shy? Go on.

Come on.

We'll always remember
this day, Raja.

And Pinky's parents too.
They gave us so much love..

...treated us like their own.

We won't forget them
till our last breath.

You are not married yet and..

...you talk of the last breath.

Look, all our dreams
will be fulfilled.

I'll get a job and then
marriage and after that.. - Oh!

Oh, Raja. No mischief.

This is mischief?
Before marriage, it is.

And after marriage?
- It turns to civility.

I want to be civil soon.

I will. Now, leave my hand.

Look, there's
a temple here..

...and what were
you doing before God?

Rani, this God is a ..
Very nice thing.

When you want him,
you can't find him and..

...when you are not
looking for him, there he is.

Come, let's have
a chat with God.. Come.

Rani. Oh, Rani.

What's the matter? Why did you
run away from the temple?

No, I cannot tell you. If I do,
you will start hating me.

Then I'd definitely
want to hear it.

What secret is that which
will make Raja hate Rani?

I am married. - What?

Today, after a long time,
I saw my father-in-law.

It was like
a marriage of dolls.

My husband did not
want to marry me.

He married me so as not
to displease his parents..

...and left home. He had
an accident the same night.

Wait a minute.. Wait a minute..
And in that accident..

Yes, I became a widow
the very same night.

If you have become a widow,
then I have died long ago.

Do you.. Do you remember
our first night?

You were sitting with covered
face and your husband..

...was pacing up and down.

When you fell at his feet, he
suddenly saw the bathroom door.

He then went into the
bathroom and never came out.

Raja, how do
you know all this?

Because that was me.
Your marriage was with me.

The advocate's son had
gone away a long time ago..

...after he'd
written that note.

What is this you are saying?

What I am saying is right.
The police was after me and I..

...got into the house
and hid in your room.

I read the note, there was litte
time, the police was after me..

...and I put on the
turban and saved myself.

That means you turned
Nirmala into Ranibai.

After the marriage, did
you never think of me?

Don't get me wrong.
I got caught the same night..

...and went to
jail for 6 months.

When I left the jail, I tried to
find you but you were gone.

Yes, by that time
I was a dancing girl.

Please forgive me..

All your troubles till date
have been because of me.

My mistakes were
done unknowingly.

No, Raja.
I am not blaming you.

The fault lies with my fate..

...that got me married to you
and even though you were..

...alive, compelled
me to become an..

...ordinary song
and dance girl.

Fate has not had
less fun with me, Rani.

I came to my wife's house with
my friend and, thinking her a..

...bazaar girl,
asked her to dance.

And, after that, Raja, had
you gone out of my life..

...what would have
happened to me?

Oh! It is only after that I
have started believing..

...in a fickle thing like fate.

See. I got you and lost you.
And then I got you again.

Oh, Raja!

Hey! Wipe your tears.
I was a thief earlier.

Now, I can with aplomb,
tie a necklace around your..

Rani... Your necklace!

Necklace? Did I drop it?

On the way somewhere?
- In the temple? - Come on.

This is not the one.

Then we have only
two designs more.

Can we see them?

It was exactly like
this, wasn't it?

What's its price?
- 10000 rupees.

I want these 10000
rupees as a loan.

Loan? And that too 10000?

I need it desperately.
I swear I will repay every paisa.

Look, Raja.
I have a principle.

Bring goods
and take the money.

I don't the
business of lending.

Lala, I have earned
thousands for you.

Today, when I have a
need, you are acting funny?

I am not acting funny, I am
only showing you the way..

...from which
you have gone astray.

Come back to the old
ways, all will be well.

Sister had sent
the ayah today.

What did you say?

I put it off today.

How many days will
you put it off?

The necklace has
to be returned..

...as soon
as possible, any how.

But, how?
It is a matter of 10000.

Rani, this is
a matter of our prestige.

What a big favor
they did to us.

They gave us a chance
to come good and..

...they know very well
what we were earlier.

If, even for a moment, they
suspect that we have pinched..

...the necklace, we will never
be able to lift our heads again.

But, there is no other way.

There is one. - What?

Once, Rani.
Only once, let me steal.

No, Raja. Don't ever think of it.
You are under oath to me.

All right, I'll go and try to
get money from somewhere.

10000!? Where will
we get the money from?

How will be able to
face those nice folks?

All our dreams will be shattered.
Nothing will remain.

I have tried everywhere
and now I am compelled to..

...break my promise, Rani.

If we don't return the necklace,
it will be a matter our prestige.

This will be my last
theft, Rani. The last.

Forgive me. if you can.

When the darkness falls..
after midnight.

A thief comes out..
on the black road.

..This voice can be heard.

Thief, thief!

Thief.. Police!

Now, Raja will never steal.
- Now, Rani will never dance.

We had both seen a dream.

We both had a small house.

There were moonlit nights.

And we sat talking of love.

And if I forget about those
nights and those talks.

You must remind me
and don't forget.

Neither you could
manage, nor could I..

Neither you could
manage, nor could I..

We both could not love.

We both could not love.

Neither you could
manage, nor could I..

You could not complain,
and I couldn't censure..

You sing, Ranibai. Take him
and tie him up in some room.

Ranibai, I have given 10000
in hard cash. Dance!

There was
no such intention.

We had made a vow.

But such is fate,
it is like a chain.

We could break this
and leave the world.

But we have had to
live and drink this poison.

You broke your vow,
I was not trustworthy..

Come, let us do justice
and forgive each other

You could not
manage innocence.

You could not manage
to be virtuous.

I could not manage
virtuous too.

Neither you could
manage, nor could I..

Neither you could
manage, nor could I..

We both could not love.

We both could not love.

The heavens
may give any work..

...give anyone any name..

...he cannot change,
he cannot be retrieved.

Whatever is our work,
whatever is our name..

We'll have to do the same
and then die the same way.

We have no place
amongst the virtuous.

...my loyalty is gone,
my virtue is gone.

You could not protect it.

And I could not
protect it, too.

Sir, I had come here
only to dance. Let me go.

Ranibai, I have given 10000
rupees not for only dance.

I will return your money.
Just let me and Raja go.

Tonight, think of me
as your King, my queen!

My life.
Gladden my heart today.


Raja, what have you two done?

That necklace was a fake.
It wouldn't cost even 200 rupees.

Raja.. Raja, if Rani
had come and told us..

Whatever happened was to
prevent you from knowing..

...about it, so that we did
not fall in your estimation.

Rani has told us everything.

Fate has played a big
joke on the two of you.

But don't worry. I will engage
the biggest advocate..

...and try to save you.

You have done a lot for us.

I am not afraid
of the sentence.

What will happen
at the worst? Hanging?

Don't say that, Raja.

Yes, Rani.

But there is only one grouse,
that we could be good folks..

Rani, my sister.
Don't cry. - Sister.

I have never asked for
anything from anyone..

In this life.
But I will do it today.

Don't let my Rani tie
anklets again. - Time's up!

You may leave now.

This rascal time
is also a special thing.

It just didn't give us a
chance to come good.

Raja, be brave.

Come, let's go.

Your Honor, I only have to say that
the accused Raja and his wife Rani,

in their own different ways
through their professions

have been looting society.

They met by chance
and they made a group.

Rani would sing, dance and
ply people with drink and...

...make people senseless..

and Raja would make the best of
the opportunity and loot them.

This is how the murder Seth
Govardhandas came to be.

The only difference is that
they were caught red-handed.

I would request the court
that this woman, whom the..

Defence calls
the wife of the accused..

...be taken into custody as
an accomplice to the crime.

Obiection, your honor.
The accused has admitted that..

...he has committed
the murder in order to..

...save the honor of his wife.

Your Honor, the prosecution
challenges the defence to..

...prove that Raja and Rani
are married and when and..

...where their
marriage took place.

You Honour, I request
permission to present..

...Rani as my witness.

Permission granted.

I swear upon the Geeta
that I will speak only the truth..

...and nothing but the truth.

Sir, you, perhaps,
did not recognize me.

You are my daughter-in-law
Nirmala, aren't you?

Yes, Judge, but my marriage..

Wait! There is no need
to say anything further.

Owing to there being
a relationship of the..

Witness with me, the
hearing of the case will be..

...entrusted to another court.

Accordingly, this court is
being adjourned till then.

It is true that Raja and
Rani's wedding took place..

...in my presence
as per rites.

Any more questions?
- No, thank you.

I have nothing more
to add, Your Honor.

It is now proved that Raja and
Rani were married as per rites.

But, now, since Rani had
also confessed to the crime..

...this court would like to know
who the real assailant was?

Your Honor, before going into
the question of who the true..

...assailant was, I would
suggest that we find out the true..

...reason for the murder of
Seth Govardhandas..

... and the circumstances
in which he was killed.

I obiect, your honor!

At the time of the murder,

...only Raja and Rani
were present there.

There is no proof or witness to
tell us how the murder took place.

That is why the prosecution
repeats its point that the..

Murder of Seth Govardhandas
was premeditated.

His death was as a result
of a conspiracy between..

...Raja and his wife.

That I say I say that Raja
and Rani be held responsible..

...and they should be given
the harshest sentence possible.

The court is agreeable to
what the prosecution says and..


Who are you?

I am the wife
of Seth Goverdhandas.

I have been coming to the
court everyday and have..

...been praying
to God that I should not..

...have to open my mouth ..

...because I am a Hindu woman,
for whom it is a sin to speak ill..

...of her husband
even in her dreams.

But today I am compelled
to tell you about the..

...true reason
for my husband's death.

The day he died,
I heard the noise and..

...came out of the room where
I saw, for the first time, a girl..

...who was not willing to
trade her virtue at any cost.

And on the same day, I saw
my husband, a human being..

...in the form of an animal.

Not animal, call him the
devil, call him a womanizer.

I obiect, your honor.

The accused may
be asked to remain silent.

Let him speak. The court
would like to know the truth.

The truth. The truth is that
I was shut in an adjoining room.

From there I was watching
the antics of this scoundrel.

Rani was scared
and was begging..

...for her virtue
to be spared.

Seeing my wife's condition,
my blood boiled.

But he.. he was in a drunken
state and like a hungry hyena..

...he fell upon her and the
knife went right through him.

I freed myself somehow and
took the blood-stained knife..

...from her and swore
her to secrecy and..

...took the blame
for the murder.

We are very bad people,
we are the shunned..

...but we are not killers.

We.. We always tried to be good..
tried very hard..

But every attempt failed.

Today.. Today, sir, I have
learnt that if a man falls from..

...the mountain-top
he can get up again..

... but if he falls from grace,
he can never get up again.

We have lost, sir..
we have lost.

Now, whatever sentence
your law gives, it may..

...and if possible, we may
be sentenced to death..

...so that we are freed from
this daily dying. Please, sir.

Order. Order.

It is this court's view that
whatever evidence and..

...witnesses that
were presented by the..

...prosecution against
Raja were insufficient.

And in spite of the confession
of the accused and keeping..

...in view
Mrs. Saritadevi's statement..

...it is proved that the death
of Seth Govardhandas..

...was not pre-meditated and
was as a result of chance..

...for which the accused,
Raja, or his wife Rani..

...cannot be held responsible.

Accordingly, this court
dismisses this case..

...and releases
the accused Raja.

It is my good fortune that I got
this opportunity to atone for my sin.

My daughter-in-law
became Rani from..

...Nirmala on my account.

But, today, I can say with great
pride that I accept her as my daughter..

...and pray to God that the
atrocities of Society and..

should not give birth to..

...any other Raja and Rani.

Go, my children. Be happy.

May God bless you.

Wait, Raja, wait.

I got a little late.

Raja, you know I always make
coffins for the ones who go away ..

but, today, I have made something
for the one who is yet to come.

Look at this.

Uncle, is this for me?
- No, no.

For the one to come.

Raja, you two have
done wonders in life.

Actually, Raja, you..
you are a special thing, man.
