and i've a permit for it too;shall i show you? serve him rum. come, sir. have a seat.so how's your fishing business? first class.there's lot of money in fish, sir. and there's lot of fishin the sea too, ma'am. - where do you export your fish?- what export? what she means is whichcountries does your fish go to? what are you saying, sir?i sweat all day and catch fish. i can't supply this city,how can i export it?
shall i tell you something?if we sell a fish for rs. 1... when it comes on your table, itcosts rs.8. middlemen make profit. but don't worry, i'll give you abasket full, of fresh fish, daily. raja, won't you showyour room to bobby? they make such a lovely pair.how happy the kids look! yes, they're kids....your rum. water, or soda? i'm a fisherman; i take it neat.dilution weakens it. fill it up. till i take my full quota,i can't think properly.
my father can't talk with style.i hope your father understands. i understand only too well,what you're after. i'm a god-fearing man, sir.i really tell you. i only want my daughter's happiness.god has given me everything. - she's my only daughter.- raja's my only son too. there's nothing more valuablethan his happiness, for me too. he's naive. doesn't realise thatwhat seems joy is in fact danger! actually you dreamt a lofty dream. i'm sorry, that it won'tcome true however.
you see where you live,and the way you live. just think where you are,and where we stand. how did you think that yourdaughter will come here as... what did you say? - i planned all this? me?- isn't it possible... that your mother could've thoughtof this when she worked here? that one day raja will growup and so will your daughter. yes! he's my heir to allmy wealth. but still a kid. a stupid bird sees the grain,but not the trap!
and with the kind ofbeautiful trap you've laid... hold on. cherish this.i'll think that my love is safe. we'll not stay here a minutelonger. come, mother. - i'll never forget this meeting.- i'll leave them to the taxi-stand. your daddy's rum is not strongenough to make me lose my way. i had told you, for the sakeof bobby's happiness... i'll bow at anybody's door,but i'll not kneel! how come a richie-rich botheredto come to my humble hut?
last night you got angry andreturned home. later i realised... my way of saying things was wrong.- let alone ways, sir. what you said was wrong. i owe you yesterday's rum. i don't drink in the mornings. and i drink 24 hours, sir.you big-wigs keep a schedule. if you have anything worthwhileto say, carry on. indeed! it is worthwhile for you. i've come to ask you,how much money do you want?
how much money do i want?what did you say? - i didn't hear you properly.- you heard me alright. you are an excellent angler!you net good fish! and this time,my son has been caught in it. i don't wish youto undergo any loss! tell me, what's yourprice to set my son free? rs.20,000, rs.50,000. you brought a cheque-book?!you wait. hold on, man.i'll show you.
comes with a cheque-book!dangles money at me! money! money! money! you think only you have money?even i have it. look! you rich have just money,cars, bungalows... you've just wealth,but not hearts. and we poor, have honour,hearts, and happiness. and we don't sell thesethings, understand? you don't sell, but makebusiness out of it! people with honour don't turntheir daughters into bales of hay...
and offer them to sonsof millionaires. get me? had mr. nath come?go inside, dear. why are you just standing?tell me. why was he here? why?to tell me that... you're a whore's aunty.and that i'm a bastard... that i force my daughterto sell herself. do you know why that friend istrampling our prestige like this? because you fed his son! - raju had given me this. - i'lldrown you if you take his name!
i'll pack off both of you.go to goa at once. - why? - if you speak,i'll have your tongue! you'll not live here. i don't want that boy tocome here and meet my baby. out you go! - how dare you come here!- i've come for bobby. i don't want to hear her nameon your lips, do you hear? she's dead to you! get lost, i say!
i beg of you...before i do something to you... please go from here. you've made life one big hellfor my daughter. she'll never laugh again. you'vemade a living corpse out of her. "my heart broke..." "into a thousand pieces..." "in my heart" "let me hug you and die" "what's the point in living"
"let our eyes see"each other, at least "let our eyes see..." "each other, at least" "so that even from afar..." "we can quench our"thirst for each other "let us be close enough"to see each other "so that even from a distance"our thirst can be quenched "so let our eyes at least"see each other where had you been?
i said where had you been. - you know where i had been.- why? - answer me! why?- you know why. - that's no answer.- okay. i had gone to meet bobby. i can't live without her.i... i love her. love, my foot!you're not old enough for love. do you know what love is,and who is worthy of it? first you brought scum here andnow i'll just stand and watch? hear me good, son. the prestigeof this house is no toy.
this is my house. one who doesn'tobey me has no right to stay here. - where are you going? - sir, i hadwrongly thought this was my home too. what childishness is this?where will you go? can't i be a shoe-shine boy,or work as a labourer? let him go, dear.he'll be back in two days. he doesn't know about those boyswho become old men straight away. - who don't know what's youth!- if that's my destiny, so be it. even if i've to starve. at leasti'll be with the one i love. so you're seeing that mirage, eh?
even the law doesn't permityou to do this. because you're still a minor.if you marry, you'll land in jail. your father's right, son.become 21 years old... and then do what you like. - he has begun to talk back!- you also scold him like a kid. - why don't you convince him?- what do today's kids think we are? do today's parents understandtheir kids? - meaning? - just that modernkids know to see, with open eyes. it's not necessary that their viewshould match their parents view.
a 19 year old boyisn't a kid, mr. nath. it's just 2 years. i'll be 21,and you'll be 19 years old. then no power on earth can stop us.the law, or our parents. never mind. i've found a way.i'll get raja married. - without asking him?- will he agree if i ask him? thanks to ms. pestonji we've gota decent proposal from mr. sharma. welcome, sir.we were just talking about you. yes bobby, we'll have asweet home after we marry. i promise i'll give youthe house of your dreams.
since our children will wed soon,this house is mine and vice versa. sure. now that you both are related,how about sealing it with a hug? i'm having a new year partyand you're all invited. we'll have a drink together, andthe boy and the girl can meet too. we'll surely come. we'll never keep our kids awayfrom us. we'll love them a lot. without love, kids becomevery insecure, bobby. - there's a difference in dreamsand reality, son. - what?
of what use is such innocence? that you can't even hearyour dream being shattered? this is not thehouse of your dreams. run away, raj...run away from them all! - anything special? - no, theusual. music, dance, drinks etc. but for us it'll certainly be special.we'll start the year on a new note. looks as though he has invitedthe whole who's who! come! greetings. look, they've come.
- my darling...- how he has grown! - yes?- introduce raja to my daughter. look after your special guest.this is raja. you took so long to come.made me wait so much... i didn't recognise you. no?you didn't recognise me? i'm alka... alka sharma! so, you're mr. sharma's daughter.
yes, i'm the one. this house is mine. nice, eh? my daddy built this housejust for me. only me. i'm his only child, so i'll beinheriting all this one day. that's why everybodyloves me so very much. everybody calls me by my pet name,nicky. you also call me nicky. i prefer alka. i'll tell everybody nowto call me alka, okay? - your doll's very nice.- yes, isn't she?
i've a room full of dolls.come, i'll show you. i know i've grown upand become tall too. but mentally, i'm still a kid. so what? the doctor saidwhen i get married... everything will be fine. - you will marry me, won't you?- me? marry you? you will, won't you? you're not like the others.you will marry me? - who told you this?- my dad. your dad.
my dad said he'd give your dada whole lot of business. and they'll send us abroadfor our honeymoon. my dad's wealth is all mine andthen yours after marriage. you will marry me?my dream will come true? i will become a bride, won't i? i will be a bride... what's this? you asked me to waittill i was 21. why am i cheated? i didn't do anything. this proposalwas good so your father decided. this is my life. who are youto take decisions about it?
your father! the decision is final.it's for your own good and progress. you've sold me for money,by making this deal. learn to be polite, son.no use arguing about it now. mr. sharma is going to make itofficial tomorrow.
