Seems, you aren't hungry today, Roopa. Don't bother me, I have loads of work to do. Yes, I can see. Such urgent work. But don't you think, you went a little overboard with your ire. Overboard? He can get angry, can't I? Of course, you can. But how will he know that? Why don't you go and show him how angry you are? You are very smart, aren't you? I don't care if he knows it or not. I'll not go.
You need to go, dearie. Who knows how long this bird will stay? Just leave, will you? You seem to be too concerned. But you do feel something, don't you? Go, go and give him some food. Alright, if you insist. Yes. I've brought him in from outside. He was totally engrossed listening to the music. He has a violin too. Hey, can you play something.

– What? Listen, Kundan. – What? Where did you get so much money? – Why should I tell? If I tell you, you too will get rich. Aren't you my foe? I swear on this instrument, I will never be your foe. Please tell me, Kundan, I beg of you. You won't be my foe? – No. Sure? Well then, listen. Yonder, beyond the main street, is this gentleman.. ..who winds this machine and takes pictures. Yes? You go there and your work is donel Your pocket is loadedl I go there and my pocket is loaded? – Yes. Does this gentleman have a money making machine? No, he'll take your picture and give you money.

Yes. – You send, Sujan, on a wild goose chasel Yes, just the sound of money makes people wildl You don't even need real money. Listen. -Yes? Sujan.
. Will you spend some money on me? For what? For what? You want to buy a house and car and become a fat pig? And I'd have got drunk on cocktails.. ..and ended up in hell. Hell, eh? Rupa, forget all this. Play the drums, dance, make the monkeys perform. You have to play at our place. You'll be paid handsomely. No, I don't need money. I play at will, what would you get listening to me play? Oh yes, we'd be delighted. We want to listen to your kind of music. Think about it. We'll lose it listening to useless talk, Roopa, let's go. Damu, let's go. What is your name? – Roopal Can't you talk Kundan into it? What should I talk him into? He doesn't listen to anyone but his heart. But, if he listens to us, he will be famous. He'll be respected, he will be rich. – Rich? Yes. He can't imagine it.
He won't have to perform on streets at all. He will be very rich? – Yes. Can you tell how much money this is? Yes, this is a lot of money, a lot. Will that buy me an armband? – Yes. He'll get more money than this. He will earn each month. Each month? Regularly? – Yes. Only if you can bring him round to do it. I'll do it, for sure. You guys insist that I should take this up? Yes, go and have a look. If you don't like it, give it up. Exactly, that's just what I said. Alright, alrightl Go to an alien place and return like an emperor, right? Yes. Hey, Kundan, listenl Why the long face? You're going to a music studio, not to a museum. Why don't you earn lots of money.. ..and really return as an emperor? Or how else will I be the Empress? You are so eager to be an empress? – Certainly. Instead of this hovel, a big beautiful house. In place of this torn skirt, I'd rather don silk and velvet. In place of these glass bangles, I want diamonds.
. ..priceless jewels, glittering and shiningl Roopa. Roopa. – Yes. Listen. I will, go. – Great, really? Roopa. Roopa, hey Roopa. – What? Where have you been hiding? Why should I hide? Whatever you say, do you consider.. ..me a near and dear one or not? No kidding now. I am a little sad. What happened? Are you in love or something? Roopa, you haven't done the right thing? What? You shouldn't have forced Kundan to go there. They are gentle folk, aristocratic. They don't have our wellbeing at heart. Rubbishl He will learn to play new music, earn lot of money. One minute. What if new temptations, make him forget the old? What if he forgets you? Don't be silly. Even if he soars high as a kite.. ..the moment I tug at his heartstrings, he will come down to earth. Don't forget Roopa, a kite can also sever from it's owner. Are you ready to work? I am ready for sure, but can't say the same of my heart. Your heart too will comply, don't worry? Her.
e Before you start, here's something to please your heart. Thai is.. Roopa! What are you throwing away? This bangle. – This seems like a pretty piece, why throw it? What do I do with it? It's broken, that's why I'm throwing it. One minute. Here, take this, it is mended now. You're pretending to mend it, eh? Don't I know the truth? Give me that one too. So you've started earning already? Wasn't it a good move? Going there? You'll go places and earn much more. Instead of this bangle, I'll get a golden onel Right? Who are you? What do you want? Sir, I'm a performing artiste. You know Kundan? The person who used to perform for you. I am his brother. Now you see, you entertain one, the entire tribe is herel What do you want? – Work. Like Kundan. Fair enough. Do you know what Kundan does here? Yes, I know.
He plays the violin. I play the violin, the drums, the pipes. Just give me a chance. No that's not possible. So I won't get work? There is no work, how will you get it? There's only work for Kundan? Okay, I'll see how well he works. Hey, listen. You want to work for money, right? – Sure. Why should only Kundan earn? What's wrong with me? Is Kundan your chief? – Kundan? Is that what he said? He's a liarl He is not chief, neither am I. Well, the girl who came with you that day.. ..is she your wife? Why? She's not my wife! You seem to be stressed. If you come with us, we're done for! Do you also go there? Why can't we go? Is it forbidden? Nothing is forbidden. Anybody can go wherever they want. You keep us happy, we'll reward you. When Kundan leaves the clan.. ..
you will be well rewarded. – Really? Yes. – Greetingsl Sujan, what are you doing here? I just came to check out the place you're working at. Have a good look. But, I say, Sujan, you're a strange one. Don't upset all plans. Now that you're working, you are too big for your boots, eh? I'll see how far you gol Your sari is clean, without using soap today? Why? You think I work magic? Yes, dearie, you have magic. Not in your hands.. Then? – But in those bangles. How nicely they hug your wrists, I wish.. – Oh. Why don't you get some for yourself? Look at you, having fun at my expense. Let's see if you can undo it now. "My mirror studded bangles glitter and shine." "My mirror studded bangles, seem to reflect the joy in my heart."

I'll play this? – Yes. Okay. Careful, don't run away. I have left no stone unturned.. ..hope everything doesn't come to nought. I don't think it will come to that. Anyway, go and check on him after a while. It's not only about keeping an eye on him. We also need to encourage him. Is that my job? Who else if not you? What happened? Why the silence? I'm afraid of this. – Afraid? Why? It's not a wild animal. It's a violin, a very expensive one. Expensive? That is why, I can't seem to play it. Break its pride. Otherwise, how man are you? You're right. I'll break its pride, huh? Roopa, Kundan is not back tonight. – Yes, seems like it. Listen Banu, tomorrow you've to come with me to see him. Okay. He seems to have forgotten his home.
I'll teach him a lesson. You're fasting since yesterday, do you know? You practised all night? – Yes. Will you play something? Fine, if you're not satisfied, don't play anything. But, you haven't gone home for two days. Won't your clan worry for you? Let them worry. Hey youl Where do you think you're going? Stop. Hey guard, please get Kundan. No, you can't meet him.

I will go, but not today, tomorrow or the day after. Roopa, look at the moon. I won't leave till it's the full moon. Can I live without you? Really? – Yes. Really? He says he's leaving. He won't work here. – What? Yes, he won't. You had great expectations from him. But the bird has flown its coop. The path is clear. He took money from you and now he is my enemy. Where does that leave you? I said, you'd get a handsome reward. Couldn't you find one reason to make him leave the clan? What can I do? You've spoilt him by giving him work here. He is showing off the money he's earned. And Roopa is all impressed. – Roopa. The girl who was with him the other day? Yes, that's the truth. It's Roopa who has tied him down. But, we have to make him leave. That's right. At any cost, it must be done. Listen.
We will take Kundan to a new place this time. But first, you have to antagonize Roopa against Kundan. But he is suspicious of me. Ok, we'll deal with it. Come, let's go to your place. You'll visit personally? Yes, I'll have to. Ok, come. I won't go any further. They will smell a rat. Just go straight ahead, you will find Kundan. Alright, remember what I told you. – How can I forget? This is your reward. Thank you very much, Madam. Once the job is done, you know what you'll get, isn't it? I understand fully. Roopa. Hey listen Roopa, I'm not here to bother you. Then why are you here? I'm here to give you an astounding piece of news. I heard what Kundan is actually up to. I heard it at the marketplace. So you've heard, what's that to me? True, why would you be interested? The two-timing so-and-so, why would you want to hear of him? Don't you dare abuse him unnecessarilyl Abuse him unnecessarily? Me? Do you know what he is up to? Do you know, he is planning to leave? He is leaving with the music people.
He's obsessed with music. Lie! It's a lie! No, I won't go now. Why? Is it because you're twining a rope? You don't twine rope in this attire. The attire is yours, this job mine. I understand, but is this your chief occupation? What is chief and non-chief about work? What's the big deal? All you have to do is roll it. Then let's see you roll it. – Okay. No, it didn't work. See, you hold it here, and with the other hand you twist it. You can see for yourself, whether I lie or not. Okay, but only twining rope will not do.. ..you have to come to our place too. I have come to take you myself. You go ahead, I'll follow. Okay, bye. Come soon, will you? Why did she come to call you? I don't know. You don't know? She wants to rile me. Is there no man in their house? That she had to come to fetch youl That's their style, men and women are alike.
Really? Men, women alike? What rot this isl And did you see her style? Bye. Come soon. Go, why don't you? Such a sweet invitationl Go. Teasing her like that. She's not here to see. She's not here, but you are. Hurts, doesn't it? Yes, it does hurt. Okay, I'll see you soon. Go, where's the need to return? Go pitch a tent there. Oh sir, where are all of you? Come here. – What? Come here. Why did you rush to call me back? I had barely taken your leave after making you happy. Because you made us happy, we went to call you. Why? – And leave doesn't mean permanent leave. Your work here is not over yet. Not over yet? – Now listen to thisl It's just the beginning, now we continue somewhere else. It's beautiful, like a picture. Then you go where you please, what will I do there? We are going for you. So that you can work at peace. Such music that everybody will be spellbound. Will be stunned.
We are fully ready, we leave tomorrow. To-mo-row? No, I won't go. What rot you talkl don't spoil your career like this. Your kinsfolk won't abandon you. You finish your work and return to them. You don't understand, we have pinned all our hopes on you. Don't expect so much from mel If I knew this, I wouldn't have taken on your work. Why? Have you found us wanting in anything? Have we been unfair to you? No, certainly not, that's not what I'm saying. But I don't like to leave my clan and go. But you should still go on. Don't falter in your steps. The magic in your hands, the talent you possess.. ..instead of presenting it to the world, you want to waste it? You keep insisting that I have what it takes.. .
.what if you're wrong? No way. Kundan, I've observed a lot. We know real talent when we see it. Come along with us. I'll just take some advice and come. Who's there to take advice from? No, I must bid all of them farewell. You here? I was wondering why it was so dull out there. Don't bother me. I don't feel good. I have come here to cheer you up. Why are you holding my hand, let gol You won't let go of my hand. Very well, take me where you will. Where do I take you? I'll stay here, holding your hand. Why hold my hand, how about lying at my feet? What's the use of lying at her feet? It's better if you scoot on your own, holding your ears. – Why? Why should I leave? To prove my guilt? You're the one who needs his ears twisted. Sure, but first go wash your hands.
Clear off, I need to talk to Roopa. You need to talk? Have you bought Roopa? Yes, I have. I've won her over with true love.. ..not with a lying heart. Will you go on your own or do I need to twist your ears? You'll twist my ears?! Sujan! Throw the knife, Sujan. Why don't you run if you're scared? I'll make mincemeat of youl Are you in your senses now? Go, quitl Remember, I've a score to settle. Where are you going? – Where I wish? What is it to you? To Sujan. He's not up to the mark. Listen. They want to take me somewhere but I am unwilling. That is why, I've come to you for advice. Advice from me? Why, that madam has given up on you. Why are you obsessed with madam, madam and madam? There are hundreds of madams and gentlemen in this world, what of it? To each his own, like the bird has wings, why bother? The left and right, Each person has a partner. Can you change one for the other? Oh, you have learnt to talk very cleverly. A case of empty vessels making the most sound. Who taught you all this? That fancy-nancy madam? I Roopa, you can abuse me, but leave madam out of it.
It hurts bad doesn't it, if I say something about her? Go to her, stay with herl And you say you're here for advice? Advice or a joke? Roopa, don't react to lies. I didn't go there for myselfl You were the one, who insisted I gol Yes it was me who sent youl To learn music, to earn money. Not to dress up like those gentlefolks and dance to her tune. Watch your tongue, Roopa! I'm not anybody's puppet to dance to their tune. You hit mel! Listen, Roopa is not anybody's slave. Not even yours! Every man wants to enslave Roopa. Let me break this flute. Today in my rage, everything that belongs to me is broken. I swear by this amulet.. ..if you ever return you will find me dead, dead. Roopal You left me, Roopa! What have you done? So, have you taken advice and all? – Yes.
I have completed all my duties. – Goodl I knew your kinsmen would not deny you this journey It's good you let them all know, now you can go.. ..with a carefree heart. We're leaving early tomorrow. Where are we going? You don't need to worry. It's a wonderful, quiet place. Is it very far away? – Far? No, it's not very far. Why do you fear to tell me how far it is? I want to go far. So far that I can never turn back. You have arrived, that's nice. Bahadur, get the luggage in. We were coming to the station to receive you. Then why didn't you? Due to him. – Why? Well you see, I didn't expect the train to arrive at the wrong time. But the train arrived on time. – Well, that is the wrong time. Daily, the train is regularly late by two hours. Today I didn't expect it to arrive at the wrong time.. ..
I mean on time, without notice. Take Kundan's bags up. Which room? This one to the left on the first floor. Take all this to that room. Kundan, you can go along with them. Come on, let's go. Come on. "Why so distant, why not in tune?" "Fill my heart with music." "You may call me by a new name." "Why so distant, why not in tune?" "Fill my heart with music." "You may call me by a new name." "Like the stars in the sky, without the moon." "You need to comprehend me anew." "Why so distant, why not in tune?" "Fill my heart with music." "You may call me by a new name." "The joy within you that reflects in your eyes." "The same joy echoes sweetly in my heart." You haven't turned on the lights? You put it on, didn't you? Should I converse with you in a dark room? You don't need to converse, I'm not going there.
Okay, you don't have to go. But what's the matter with you? Nothing. I just can't play. Why? Oh, you didn't like the tune, isn't it? We too didn't like it. That is why you are here. Compose a tune. Please release me from this arrangement. I want to be free. I won't be able to do anything. Why are you nervous, Kundan? You'll be just fine. Tell me, why didn't you like the tune? Why? I don't know why? Look at that! Do you like it? Yes, it's nice. Very nice. See it's nice and it's not so nice. Your own heart knows it. You can't explain it to a stranger. You cannot explain it to a stranger. You don't have to explain to anyone. As long as you understand it. Why can't you do it? Awaken the melodies that lie within you.
You have to. I'm scared. Ever since, I came with you folks. My heart has closed, it refuses to open. It'll open, don't worry. Rest tonight. Tomorrow morning when you get up, everything will be fine. Turn out the light, will you? Come, sweet, come. Roopa, this kid was running free. If I hadn't caught him, he would be gone. Didn't you see? I did. The one who has to run, how much can I stop him? That's why I let him go. You should let humans go, this one's an animall Humans, animals they are all the samel If they want to go, let them. You can't bind anyone. True, you can bind none. Whatever happened to our clan. Mother died. Kundan abandoned us. We couldn't find him anywhere. The one who walks out of his own free will.. ..what is the point looking for him? No, you have it. Where are you going, leaving all these intoxicants? Where am I going? There are other attractionsl Very intoxicatingl Roopa.
Roopa. Are you asleep? Get up. Listen to me. What is there to listen? So you're awake. Did you hear me play? I did. What a ruckus in the middle of the night. Go away. I get it, go away means come hither. This won't do, won't do at all. I'll scream. Whom will you call out to? Now Sujan is the chief here. Do you get it? I own everything here, you too. Go ahead scream. Scream to your heart's content. No one will heed your call. Where will you run off to? How long can you stay away? No. I won't run away. There is no place for me to run to. Then? Why the hauteur? The one for whom the hauteur has abandoned you like a broken pot. You're still dreaming of his return? – No. I don't await anyone. Oh, so why so sad? I have brought drugs from the community doctor. Then I'll see you tomorrow.. I'll wait here. I'll see how long you will hold out. Listen to what I have to say. Let 3~4 days go by since mother's death.
. ..then I'll do as you please. How many days out of 3~4 are remaining? Not many, just two. Not too many days. If I don't wait, my mind won't be at peace. If the mind is in turmoil, how can I get married? Okay, I'll wait. If in two days.. ..your tears don't dry. I'll light a fire to dry them. Where were you all this while? What is it? Where were you so long? Near that lake. – Do you know how late it is? All of us were waiting for you, everyone retired just a while back. And you? Why didn't you sleep? I should have retired too, but never mind that. Are you going to stay outdoors all the time? Can't you at least practice on your violin? What's the point? Just touching an instrument doesn't produce music. I know, you need to pour your heart and soul into it. Why don't you do that? Where do I get the inspiration to pour heart and soul? My soul has left me. I'm looking for it.
Your soul is with you, you just have to look hard enough. Tomorrow morning, don't go anywhere. Whether you can or not, you will play your violin. Is that clear? Tell me, promise. Promise? Why? Whether I play or not, how do you care? How do you care? Assume it to be my love. I'll never your talent go to waste. You won't? Do you know what's in me? Do you see the fire that rages in my heart? "Oh mynah bird, say something, why are you quiet?" "Still the tame mynah bird does not sing." "Oh mynah bird, say something, why are you quiet? "Still the tame mynah bird does not sing." "The wide blue sky beckons, here I am in shut in this cage." "I do not like to be trapped in this manner." "Oh mynah bird, say something." "Oh mynah bird, have you forgotten to sing?" "My heart weeps without a companion." "Oh mynah bird, have you forgotten to sing?" "My heart weeps without a companion." "Nobody feels compassion enough to set you free." "Oh mynah bird, say something, why are you quiet? "Still the tame mynah bird does not sing.
" "The wide blue sky beckons, here I am in shut in this cage." "I do not like to be trapped in this manner." "Oh mynah bird, say something." "This mynah does not seek precious jewels or gold." "This mynah just wants to break all fetters and be free." "This mynah does not seek precious jewels or gold." "This mynah just wants to break all fetters and be free." "I can't sing songs taught to me anymore" "Oh mynah bird, say something, why are you quiet? "Still the tame mynah bird does not sing." "The wide blue sky beckons, here I am in shut in this cage." "I do not like to be trapped in this manner." "Oh mynah bird, say something, why are you quiet? "Oh mynah bird, say something, why are you quiet? "Oh mynah bird, say something, why are you quiet? Where did you go after leaving the hall? – Nowhere.
We've been looking for you all over. Mr. Ghosh from the recording company waited long for you and finally left. Never mind that. We didn't expect your song to be such a hit. We can't do anything else. The recording company wants to sign you up for two years. What does that mean? What does that mean, don't you know? You'll have everything anybody can dream of. Name, money and people singing your praises. Will I be very rich? – Yes. Will I never be sad? – No, there will be no sadness. Now just cool it, will you? Don't go running off now. Tomorrow afternoon, Mr. Ghosh will be here. To sign a contract with you. You cannot retrace your steps from the path you've chosen. You were the one who said, once you set sail in the sea.
. ..you don't yearn for the safety of the shores. You're right. Once upon a time, there was this wanderer.. ..he used to perform with monkeys. Play the flute, and not a soul knew about him. I have to forget all that. Once an arrow leaves the bow does it ever return to it? It doesn't. "Oh mynah bird, have you forgotten to sing?" "My heart weeps without a companion." "Oh mynah bird, have you forgotten to sing?" "My heart weeps without a companion." "Nobody feels compassion enough to set you free." "Oh mynah bird, say something, why are you quiet? "Still the tame mynah bird does not sing." "The wide blue sky beckons, here I am in shut in this cage." "I do not like to be trapped in this manner." "Oh mynah bird, say something." Why did you bring me here? I didn't want to come.
I am sure Kundan is in the city, I will search him out. You come along with me. – No. Can I live without you? Can I live without you? Can I live without you? Roopa, they are saying we have to leave tomorrow morning. Yes. But, Kundan has not returned. He won't return. Where are you going? – Nowhere. You're sitting here, and there everyone is looking for you. Don't you want to cook? – Yes. Why are you taking of these bangles? They are so nice. Will you take them? You will give them to me? But Kundan, gave these to you. He gave it with so much love. Yes, that is why I give them to you. One shouldn't yearn for objects of desire. Alright, if you want to throw them away, give them to me. I may or may not wear them, but will preserve them well. Someday, if I can return these to you. Return them to me? "O flute, do not cry out to me in that familiar melody." "O flute, do not cry out to me in that familiar melody." "That memorable springtime may never return.
" "That memorable springtime may never return." "O flute, do not cry out to me in that familiar melody." "I find no pleasure in the bloom of fragrant flowers." "The humming of bees brings me no joy." "I find no pleasure in the bloom of fragrant flowers." "The humming of bees brings me no joy." "Do not light up any lamps for me." "O flute, do not cry out to me in that familiar melody." "That memorable springtime may never return." "O flute, do not cry out to me in that familiar melody." "The tinkling bells in my anklet ring no more." "The myriad colours of blooms no longer gladden me." "The tinkling bells in my anklet ring no more." "The myriad colours of blooms no longer gladden me.
" "Do not call out anymore to the uncared flower." "O flute, do not cry out to me in that familiar melody." "That memorable springtime may never return." "O flute, do not cry out to me in that familiar melody." God, your ways are strange. We go threadbare in the winter, and look at him.. He hangs his warm coat on his arm. Sir, sir! Take it back, sir. Sir, take it back, sir. It's yours now. – You're so generous. Am I a fool, to take it just because you offer it? This coat is treacherous. The moment I wear it, it will ask for a pair of shoes, a hat. It won't be satisfied with that. It will ask for a car, a house. All the streets of this city are my house. There are no walls, no doors. Covetous of a coat, I don't want to get trapped behind doors and walls.
Meera, I just can't seem to understand Kundan. Did you ever understand him? No I didn't. So long he has toiled with us. He holds such promise, he can go places. But seems like it's a lost cause. Looks like, you've lost faith in your convictions. Do you've faith in yours? – No. What can you do with the shell, when the soul is lost? But why? We may not be able to fathom his thoughts and aches. If the fire has died out, what's the point stoking it? In the hope that there may be a tiny spark somewhere.. ..deep within him, which can be brought aflame. Kundan, what's up? Why in this attire again? I wore my attire once more, that is your attire. And that, is your violin. – What does this mean? These are all yours. That is very kind of you, sir. But, I'd rather not have it. Why? What is the problem? Nothing really. I simply don't want to live with you folk.
I'm leaving. – You don't say, Kundanl Where will you go? Will you return to your clan? Does a gypsy have an address? What will happen to your work here? Do you know how much money you've made.. ..and how famous you are? Have I earned a lot of money? – Yes. Can I buy a car with that money? – Yes. Can I build a small house? It's your money, you keep it. You keep it, okay? Kundan! Kundan! Don't even try. He will not return. Listen one, listen all. As soon as four days are over from mother's death. Roopa and I will marry. Today, that mourning period is over, isn't it? Yes, it's over. Well then, listen everyone, tomorrow is the day of.. ..eating, drinking, song and dance and merriment. Why? Because tomorrow we wed. How will you marry? – Why? Why can't I marry? Mother died here. This place is inauspicious.
Hey, doctor, tell him. – She's right. If we do not move to a different venue.. ..this marriage will be doomed. Doomed? So, be it, who are you to meddle? The marriage will be held here tomorrow. Kundan, Kundanl You are dressed in these clothes? Why, isn't this my attire? Sure, it's your attire. Now that you've donned these again.. ..it is time you returned. I've come to take you, brother Kundan. No, dear. – That Sujan is out to marry Roopa. Won't that make you return? Roopa is getting married? – Yes. To Sujan? – Yes. Good. – It's not good. Please return, brother Kundan. You have to disallow this marriage, save Roopa. Me, save Roopa? Why? Roopa has chosen her destiny herself. Who was the one to send me to.. ..an alien music-house in greed of money? Who put me under oath, not to see her face as long as she lived? No, dear sister. I won't go. The oath still stands. Roopa was right. She wanted to break these bangles.
I saved them. I thought when you return, I'll give them to you. She had said sadly, you'd have to wait a lifetime. Here, take these bangles, you own them now, take. Liars, all men are liars. You were right, Roopa. I misunderstood. I begged him, cajoled him. But still, Kundan did not return. It seems you have put him under oath forbidding him to return. A man afraid of an oath. So what if I stopped him from returningl I knew. He wouldn't return. The groom has arrived with his men. If you give in to the wedding now, there is no turning back. Why should there be no wedding? Roopa, come out. Go on, get us married, nice and proper. Is this something you can rush through? This is a bond for life. If I don't tie it nice and tight the marriage will come undone. Now stop your dilly-dallying. It takes you all day long to tie seven knots? Give it to me.
I'll tie it. You can't do what you please. You can't get away now. Let go, let me gol Kundan! Yes. It is Kundan. But it's not the same Kundan. Just like you're not the same Roopa. The old Kundan and Roopa are dead. That is why, your oath doesn't hold good any more. Today, a new Kundan has come to meet the new Roopa. He wants to see. How these bangles look beside the marriage thread. You haven't tied the marriage thread? You're right. The old Roopa has died. This amulet doesn't mean a thing. These bangles now mean much more than any amulet. Kundan, you've arrived. Good, you can witness our nuptials. Sujan, first get it clear, who will witness whose wedding. No need. See, I'll tie the marriage thread. Is she a goat or cattle, that you can tie her forcefully? Without a proper union, that thread means nothing. Give it to me.
You? Why? You're a non-entity here. You left the clan to join the gentlefolk. You do not belong to the clan anymore. Not at all. Why will he not belong? Of course, he is out of the clan. After Mother's death, who did all of you accept as chief? It was me. If that's the case, then let us all take a vote. We will decide who is to be chief, whom do we accept? Okay, so be it. Who is chief? Kundan, Kundan. Traitors, good for nothings. Go take your Kundan. Here, tie it to Roopa yourself. Go on, take it. What if she resists? See for yourself, if she resists or submits. "I've found my mate, my heart sings.. ..the entire universe sings today." "I've found my mate, my heart sings.. ..the entire universe sings today." "The news has spread like wildfire my mate is here with me." "The news has spread like wildfire my mate is here with me." "You know, dear heart, you're the only one for me." "I'll sing, I'll dance, I'll swing and make everyone swing." "There is nothing on this earth like your sweet smile.
" "I've found my mate, my heart sings.." "..the entire universe sings today." "I've found my mate, my heart sings.".
