surrender your weaponsbefore the inquiry begins. do it. ask them to surrender too. that is what we have whateveryou may call them. ''raghupati naidu, how could''we have fought without weapons? how could men be killed if youdidn't possess weapons. ''kuppuswami naidu, you don't''know what happened here. don't defend your brother-in-lawunnecessarily. last year during thegoddess holy procession...
... one of their village menalmost knocked it in drunken state. they have killed our men forquestioning his behaviour. because of that you boycottour village from celebrations? ''i'll allow you if you promise,''in writing that... ... there will be no bloodshed. why should we obey him? let's see why god's processioncannot reach our village. let's go. i realized why court cases neverreach settlement in this country. may god save them.
wait. proceed now. hold it. ''o god, they are demons.'' what are you doing? look at my guts. look atmy feet on your chest. put it on my head ifit cools of your anger. don't trouble our villagers.don't rape our women folk. for that you have to carry theidol yourself around our village.
will you do it orface our wrath? i'll carry it. wait.''nagamani, give 'aarti'.'' you have been collecting thefunds that came to god's hundi. ''from now on, we will control it.'' they killed my son.but i can sire another. my wife is raped buti will still live with her. our fields are destroyed.we will survive on one meal. but how long do we continueto tolerate their atrocities?
you have been distributingholy food till now. we cannot see anotherperson in your place. - that's true.- what can i do? there are both good andbad men. we are being nice whilethey are being nasty. we believe in god and theybelieve in violence. ''to confront them, we must''have enough trained men. let all of us trainone child from each family. ''let's assume, each family''sacrificed one child.
they will protectus when the need arises. each family has sponsoredone child for this purpose. now it's my turn. ''- don't just stand. go,''dress up the girl. - okay. we are to offer worship at templeat 9.40 in anjali's name. we went to station. her clothesdidn't arrive by train. kuppuswami naidu wants herdaughter wear best clothes on... ... her birthday. how couldhe not send new clothes? ''- brother, call him up.''''- okay, brother.''
''brother, brother-in-law''is on line. - i see. - greetings brother-in-law.- why have you called? give it to my daughter. i wantto wish her happy birthday. why didn't you sendnew clothes by train? your daughter will be furiousif she comes to know of it. they were delivered late to me''so, i sent them by helicopter.'' you send clothes by helicopterspending thousands!! money is nothingcompared to my daughter. go out and see. you can seethe helicopter landing.
come on. unload the luggage. ''unload, faster.'' - we are relieved of tension.- where are anjali's clothes? her father sent themby helicopter. dress her up like a princess. your father sentthese clothes for you. your uncles are waiting to takeyou to temple. come soon. - are you the dance teacher?- i play harmonium. he is inside. ''hey, you, come out.''
our simhachalam told usto bring you. tell him to come to me ifhe wants to meet me. wait. don't be hasty. simhachalam is a big landlord. i agree. he seems to be rich. ''you better go. else, ouridentity will be exposed." i expected to see an old man.you are an young man! - where did you learn dance?- in rayalaseema. we will pay rs.50,000. closedown your school and shift here.
so that, our niece will takelessons as per her convenience. i cannot do it. is a lakh okay? - i didn't mean not becauseof money. - then what? i objection is to teach whenevershe feels like learning. do you think it's a joke? - how do you feel - i'm hale andhealthy. i'm fed on mother's milk. what do you think we werefed donkey's milk? you should know better.
you are after all a dance teacher.why are you being so proud? i'm not just a dance teacherbut can... ... do 'tandav' like shivaif i get enraged. cannot my niece learn dance? ofcourse she can. but danceisn't easy to learn. art is like expressions by eyes,not just sit and dream. it brings awakening in people. that is why many actors couldbecome chief ministers. it is not for arrogantand ignorant people.
you are provoking us. you have provoked me. i've replied politely. one needs our permission toenter or go out of this house. i'm one up on abimanyu wholearnt to break... ... the 'padmavyuh' while hewas still in his mother's womb. you may impress on fools. leave the dogs on him. you first learn from your dogshow to respect me.
your niece can learn dancefrom me later. ''- greetings, sir.''- greetings. - you have already paid your fees.it's not mine but anjali's. do you know whom should youpray to before you begin? - the earth godess.- show me. this is to pray to all gods. this to pay respect to teachersand other elders. this is to pay respectsto parents. ''doing like this means, greeting...''
... your seniors and teachers. the last one is to pray tothe goddess earth. this is how you pay respectsto mother earth. you first pray to her to seekforgiveness for any inconvenience... ... you might causeher by your dance. do you understand? ''yes, sir.'' show me what you understood. not like that.do like this.
you should hold your headlike this. stand straight. get into proper positionwhere is your mind? i'm telling you.do like this. you tell her. don't stare at me.stand like this. stand straight andbreath in hard. you have no interest orconcentration to learn dance. ''if you do, follow my steps.''
not here. go do iton that rock. hold the rope. let's go. - what's this? - new clothes.- who told you to bring? i brought. i want you lookdifferent from others. you must look stunning. take them back.get out of my sight. wait there. why did he get angry with me?
it must have remindedhim of his wife. he is married! he has a son too. he is not your son! i'm not even married. where is his wife? let's go to town to buynew instruments. - we will go to buy them.- dikshit is taking care of my son. i'm coming with you.

you look grownups. you are all young,to be married. cannot you go to a ladyteacher instead of him? don't come here lookingglamorous. my son is crying.''i'm coming, my dear.'' why are you crying dear? don't cry. cannot you see me strugglingalone. come here. - what do i do?- give me the soap.
you look like a good girl.give me a truthful answer. -ask. - is any of the girlstrying to woo my husband? tell me if there is.i'll teach her a lesson. ''no, madam.'' ''o my sweet baby,''want to sleep? take care of him.i'll go take bath. - there is no soap in the bath.- use 'sunnipindi' he wants me use lux soap only. we are meeting after a long time.i cannot spoil his mood.
do you know me came togetherbecause of lux soap? both of us put our hands onone piece of soap in the shop. on what?...on lux... that ignited my love. i got the soap but lostmy heart to him. since then i use only lux. madam! - don't hide it.we know who is your wife. my wife! - what do you think?- she is good.
- what?- your wife. she is waiting insidewith lux soap. go... ''- hello, brother-in-law.''- when did you come? long time back. i gavehim a bath too. you told othersthat you are my wife! i'm your sister-in-law. i'll be the first choiceif at all you remarry. i came here to tell you myfather is fixing my marriage. i told him thati'll marry only you.
i never thought of it. sheloves her sister deeply. she wishes to be motherto her sister's son. ''if you feel it is right,''i'll arrange for wedding. father-in-law.. my life is dedicatedto shravani. she left my son with meas a token of her love. that is why i'm raisinghim personally. i cannot imagine, anyoneelse in his mother's place. - have you heard it?- i have.
am i wrong? he thinks it is wrong. you look intelligent.give me an advice. what advice?- i love him. don'tknow how to make him love me. do you have any ideas? you are asking me, who issailing in the same boat? is this the right proverb? our master told her gentlyas she is his sister-in-law. he would have got angryif it was you.
i'm not an ordinary girllike others. i try till i achievewhat i want. you will lose in this matter. do you want to bet?he tied anklets on my feet. i won't leave himuntil he ties tali. it is not that easy. - what if she wins?- i want her win. how long can we stay with him?she is a perfect match for him. you have a great brain.
government should havesent you to catch veerappan. you would have strangled him. brother-in-law...we meet after a long time. -where is our master? -you lookscared as if you spotted a snake. kuppusawmy came to knowwe are here. i saw him getting down fromhelicopter. let's inform master. we know why our master is here. he will go to kill kuppusawmyif he learns he is here. what to do then?
let's go and inform him. ''why not you stay with us, father?'' i'm hunting for acertain man. i cannot come here untili find out his whereabouts. neither can i take you with me. you want her stay here till yourevange your brother-in-law's death. we lookafter her likeshe is our own daughter. i know that's whyi don't worry about her. i want to give youa precious gift tomorrow.
what happened? -feeding bottle ismissing. we are going to buy one. what happened! i got scared byhis nonstop crying. a mother uses many tacticsto make her baby eat food. she coaxes itto eat somehow. i know i cannot feed him. i let him suckle justto stop him from crying. - she impressed on our master!- how did you do it! like this.
my birthday is over. why arethese dresses stitched for me now? you will know whenyou go downstairs. shut your mouth. ''sit down, dear.'' ''son-in-law, look at her well.''i don't want complaints later on. i didn't tell you thathe came to see you. ''why did she walk away, brother?''didn't she like my son? isn't it evident? she is feeling shy that's all.let me talk to her.
why did you walk awayfrom there? - you didn't do it with myconsent. - what! getting a rich husbandisn't great. a father must marry off herdaughter to whom she loves. canceling this marriageis dangerous for us. i won't be alive tofind out the reason. no need to go to such extremes.fate will decide the future. you just keep silence.i'll handle the rest. your joy is evident thatshe agreed to this alliance.
she is my daughter after all. she is feeling shy that's all. ''sister, her wedding will''be very grand. ask me what do youwant in dowry. i want narasimhanaidu's head. you have demanded theright thing. i'll see that narasimha''naidu is beheaded,...'' ... at any cost beforeyour son ties the knot. - what is your wife's name?- shravani. go bring my son.
where is he! ''master,......''the boy is missing. you will decide whatis our future. your father thinks todayis your mother's death day. you have to prove thatyour new mother is born. okay?it is ram and sita's idols. ''touching it, means''your father won't marry me. he will say he is onlyone woman man. ''touching the knife means,''my father will not let us marry.
this is lord venkatesh withboth his consorts by his side. ''touching this means, he''is sure to marry me. ''so, touch it.''''come on, dear...'' come... come... - this is nice.- no. this one. all of them are good.difficult to choose. - daughter's selection is fine...- husband... - you look worried! come us and see for yourself. call me mother.
- who is he?- my son. - where did he come from suddenly?- he is my dance teacher's son. he will become my sonif i marry his father. ''if that happens, your''father will kill us. your marriage is fixed withdivakar.-i turned it down that day. - we ordered for invitation cards.- throw them in dust bin. that isn't easy. - you have to marry him.''- brother, let me handle it.'' - let him go.- uncle...

''so, you are using your son''to become a millionaire? why do you stare at usas if we said something wrong. you are training your sonto call anjali 'mother'? what happened to his mother? does she too earn money''by short cut, like you?'' - you better control your tongue.- what's going on? he is aggressive.you try to stophim! you want to hit me! do it.

''divakar, phone for you.'' who's speaking. -divakar. haveyou distributed the invitations? my foot. use them tolit camp fire.

search all over. don't leave him if you find him. he isn't here. - she left thenote and he left the house. ''it means, they have eloped.''let's move. why are you coming?want your men attack us again? don't play with our master's lifei beg of you. leave us alone. i severed my relationwith them. i'll live where he lives. i came here for peaceful life.

he took up weaponsinstead of pen. ''he grew up like an animal,''ever ready to hunt. he is sacrificed to the everraging vengeance. ''uncle, the day for which father''''has raised me, has arrived.'' inform appala naiduof my coming to him. raghupati naidu's man hascome with some message. message! came alone? - yes.how daring! send him in. tell him to tell us thepurpose of coming. yield from the 500 acres of farmlands belonged to temple of lord....

''... rs. 1,54,76,396/-'' you have taken it. deposit it inthe temple during the celebrations. you have held the neck ofour village head by you foot. ''so, you touch his feet''and seek forgiveness. wait. that's all or doyou have more to say? you have to do 1000 sit upsfor disrupting the procession. ''wait, my son.''what if i don't do it? he said he will behead you.
- who said it?- narasimha naidu. wait. my son who challengedyou is in prayers. - it is not right to disturb him.- that's none of my concern. - let's go up.- you cannot. - who are you to stop us?- wait. i'll bring your son down stairswithout opening my mouth. beat him up ruthlessly. his son must come outon hearing his screams. shout for him.
shout for your son. call him out. call out him name. he must come before the'aarti' is given. father... you did the same to myfather when i was a kid. ''now, you shout for your''sons to come and save you. - come on. - threatening witha weapon is not heroic. fight with bear hands ifyou have guts.
